  • that nigga

    Im gonna stop coming to this site. Why do you keep deleting peoples comments? Whats the use of Free Speech if you keep moderating the comments? And its not like there racist or disrespectful comments. Just peoples honest opinions. XXL is starting to act like FOX NEWS and CNN. This is supposed to be a hip hop site. Hip Hop is based off cmpetition, you can’t make us like certain shit. Like I said before, I officially am not a Drake fan, and I’d rather him not even touch Aaliyah’s catalog. Let R Kelly, Timbo and Missy handle that and maybe a Drake feature. XXL is becoming the worst! He’s cursing all over Aaliyah’s song, even DMX didn’t pull that when they colabo’d.

    and BIG cosign on the cursing; that was just awful.. and so indicative of how out of touch these dudes are.. soft ass drake of all people yelling out nigga and bitch on an aaliyah track??
