    Really interested to hear this album…Road to Zion is clasic, As we enter is single worthy (if this were a diffrent era), but Strong will continue was a lil akward.

    Oh yea, The song playin in the trailer while they’re in the studio is CRAZY

As long as Wayne aint spittin no bullshit then its all good wit me. Doesnt make nas washed up u dumb fuck

  • illbig

  • Anonymous

    Why Lil wayne! Why!
    A Damian/Nas/Joss Stone collab would have been awesome, why put someone like lil wayne on that track? It just makes no sense to me, but the album is going to be dope anyway
