How many songs off GFID had a video now? If Rawse really wanted that for the whole album, then its all the more reason it should've been trimmed by a few songs.

Congrats to Kendrick and Hit-Boy. Can't wait to hear that song so I can piss and moan about it not being on Life Is Good while Summer on Smash is.

On topic of songs that didn't make the cut, how goddamn awesome is (Kendrick's verse on) Memories Back Then?

Also loving Suit and Tie more with each listen. Trying not to get too excited for 20/20.

- no joke about GFID, but i felt like he drops so many videos, it doesn't even matter anymore. i barely watch em, haha.
- summer on smash grew on me and i feel bad about that
- i'm thinking that's why tip ended up cutting it. he already got had by andre, didn't need a 2nd song ruining his shit too
- i'm trying to stay away from suit & tie. i listened to it like 5 times the day it dropped, and once during the lyric video. wanna keep the shit fresh. i mean, it's less than 2 months away!
