Slaughterhouse album was okay I suppose.

Excited for the R. Kelly tour, Cruel Summer, and No Malice's EP.

FUCK Chief Keef.

And I would buy the Lil Wayne Beats by Dre headphones if they can translate him into a language I can understand.

Never listened to Roman reloaded. Still has solid verses every once in a while but I've pretty much started giving up on Nicki

Also huge fan of Joey bada$$. Can't wait to hear his new mixtape.

When I go to the R. Kelly show, if a spotlight doesn't shoot out of his cock, I'm demanding my money back.

Oh, and I still have a ton of faith in Lupe Fiasco (I feel like the minority on that) so if he really quits over Chief Keef being ignorant as fuck and ruining his city then fuck Chief Keef even more.

I was paraphrasing, but yes, you're right. He's just adding to the situation.
