something as a creator, I could say shit is my god.
cris: What did you think about Rakim's latest
Mush: Cris, It's cool.
ipsta: I think "it's been a long
time" is kind of weak for Rakim.

ipsta: If I'm putting money in someones
pocket, I should be allowed to be critical.

Just cause your friend like the shit doesnt mean you got to
