    Great videos. Everybody did their thing. Kanye, Rozay, Khaled, and Hype Williams are beasts! And that Theraflu video is a problem. Wow…all that said let me ask this quest!!!! Kanye looks like he could knock somebody out easy in this one! And Hype shot two great videos by only using two hallways…amazing.

    I can understand that he did the job to move forward and escape the bad since what happened to his friend but in a way he went around and stabbed his friend in the back by acting like he is some street hustler by jacking someone’s complete style i mean after seeing the bad it does to your friends and knowing that u never lived that life why in the hell would u gloat and glamorize it like selling drugs is the way to go to be successful and make it sounds like he has a major case of identity crisis

    Come on XXL, were you even at the show? What kind of reporting is this? Iron Solomon lost to the crowd, which was obvious to anyone that was there. Solomon was never given a chance (he was booed the second he got on stage) and he had zero chance of winning over the Harlem/Mook fanbase that populated the audience.

    The fix was in, plain and simple.
