  • Lion2GunzUp

    How Hova gon drop 2 albums so close to one another right outa retirement. Its been up to 5 years for other artists on his label def jam. Dude is promoting himself to much, stop beeing selfish and promote your label first selfish Mu Fuc#@. Look at what Dr. Dre be doin thats how Jays gotta be. He’s not an artist no more hes a president, grow up cuz ur new shit blows jay……Joey finally gon move work cuz he ain’t under this dude wit this dude no more. U old jay u need to retire on the REAL. Blue Magic? Thats the weakest single iv’e ever heard i hope it don’t make the album cut, hahaha. 1 Lion
