    how come the first thing niggas do on here is get into an arguement about some gay shit? It don’t matter what the article be about, one of you niggas always get to talking about some nigga being a homo. or start making fag orientated jokes. And what type of nigga even say no homo? Why would you even have to specify that you didnt mean some shit in a fag way? What make you think the next nigga even thinkin’ bout the fag meaning to shit? Yall niggas tryna subliminally turn rap into some homo thuggery. Keep it straight in 09 get off that bullshit
