Tony Yayo should be highlighted more often. Jay is the Creflo Dollar of rap, and I'm not a fan. Who cares about Basquait paintings or Tom Ford clothing. I personally relate to "Godfather of Ghetto" Make sure to pick up that mixtape!!! That 2nd single "Lean/Molly" is the s***

I was listening to Power106 LA this morning and they did sort of a round table, playing Magna Carta and letting people call in to give their opinion. The majority of the people who brought the cd or download from iTunes ripped it apart. They were disappointed in his flow and the whole album. Interesting...
