        He probably thinks Waka Flocka is the most innovative and original artist out now.

    Since I’m from also from Northern California (Nor Cal), I apologize in advance for how much of a ho bag has represented. I want to dropkick him in the left earlobe right now.

    Real-real, Kanye is RETARDED right now. He is one of the hardest working artists, not to mention most creative, from production to features and lyrics, he’s dope.
