    Hi Guys,

    Truth be, I bought the Lil Wayne CD, bought the Luda CD, passed on the Gucci mixtape (who the hell bought THAT!? A mixtape!?) and won’t give a damn this week to pick up any of the new LPs (but have already grabbed the new BOB single, and guilt-ed into getting Slaughterhouse – both on iTunes)

    Isnt it 04/21 already? no-ones gonna fuck with Cypress Hill now! They shoulda released the album in the lead-up to 4/20 – same goes for poor ol Devin!

  • Gucci!!!

    The Burrrrprint 2 is definitely decent to good. Once you get through all the shout-outs and what not there are some real bangers on the album. Go get a copy and listen to it before you talk shit bitches and I know there are a lot of you out there.

  • brand-new

    no thanks sport, i’ll just take your word for it.

  • Gift

    where are my 4/20 celebrators. the celebration should last all week lol!! went to that marley fest in austin and got very lifted in the clouds!!! I actually sat down and listened to “THE STATE VS RADRIC DAVIS”, and to be honest, it wasn’t as painful as I thought. I can only jam Gucci when I’m blazed, but he had some joints on there. I know I’ve been very anti-Gucci, so for me to admit this, the music had to be decent. Don’t kill me for my opinion lol! I’m just saying though.

  • Trappin in the Burbs Is Eazy

    That Gucci CD is one of the best that I have heard in years. If you like basketball and going to movies than this is the cd for you.

  • Enlightened

    I don’t really mess with Gucci, but when they announced the VH-1 Hip-Hop Honorees, I was really wishin that nigga was out.

    He should be honoring Master P with “I’m Bout It.” Picture that nigga with the Saints jersey on and the shades like P had in the video.

    That might be the closest impersonation since Nelly did LL Cool J.

    Fuck Gucci, that nigga was as fuck.. He’s got some dope instrumentals but fuck… can’t believe muhfuckas listen to his shit… Not hatin though, I just can’t see how people call Gucci’s shit hip hop. One.

  • smojo

    ^ nigga what? read what you just said. ‘not hatin though’ you might as well listen to gucci god damn.

  • Avenger XL

    Lil Wayne is a brand he can go gold for farting on a record due to the number of stans that want to appear cool by owning that record. Factor in the number of teens programmed by the disney/nick machines and the number the label bought to cause a false demand and bam Wayne sales 500,000 which is a horrible flop given where his last album was. YE experimented and went platinum. Weezy went uber wack rock pop and went gold you figure it out.

    The black eyed peas are the real uber brand in all of this they are still selling records like they just dropped and they suck. But they are so pop they can’t help but blow(pun intended)

    Gucci mane has enough LD students who listen to LCD rap and southern rap fans to sale whatever whenever. I heard this album in a friends car who is a big LCD rap fan and it sounded like most of Guccis shit. If you like Gucci this mixtape is for you.

  • bullets

  • Handsome

    Y’all folks dissing Gucci is dumb as f***. He recorded the mixtape over the phone from jail idiots. Gucci is the hardest dude in the rap game. Dude killed a n**** in self defense.
