I deal out myself through juvenile from 99 to 03.The school used to be called Henry Gurney School in the land of A Famosa.Every schedule counts everyday 'till the day you start a war between and above sacrifice to the property of Islam.I didn't make that to blame since and ever.I was that little small device of yours from the Transformer film.Looking back to your height for Infinity,i was to be blame everytime the sun struck it strike to 12.My family was every structure that a country call reach the preach to Marshal Law before Divinity itself.I got a few war label needle string to every vain of my blood flow.I am from the country to every last Avatar that reaches crucifixion and am i not Holy to whom you ever serve.They won't let me get myself in and out of labour.I remember you put Nazi,Nanxing,Nippon and above every functional system i possess

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...

50 cent is successful as f*** and he's 5 years younger than jay z. That was a retarded comment. Ducking riff raff is more successful than you and me and I'd rather be myself then riff raff. Work hard get a job money will come you don't need a billion to be happy family>money
