    first and who cares

  • Shorty DooWhop

    here’s my predictions:

    1. Artist of the Year: Chamillionaire (he’s not my personal pick but i’ll admit he had one hell of a year)

    2. Best Album: Nas-Hip Hop is Dead (though I think Lupe Fiasco comes in a hard 2nd, the rest of thes nominees are a disgrace!)

    3. Best Hip Hop Act: T.I. (only rapper to go platinum….nuff said!)

    aside from a few, good looks.also ^^fuck you.John Legend is great (no N.O. For Life) and Nellys good too.Pappy had a hell of a year in the mixtape market, so thats why he got nominated.Why didnt Weezy get nominated?CUZ HE FUCKING SUCKS.U think the suburbs know a lot about Pappy?All those wiggers love Weezy, so u kinda played urself @ N.O. 4 Life.
