yeah, like what the fuck is up w/ Nas dropping "I Can" less than a year after "Oochie Wally?"

would that be 92Q that you're referring to? I haven't lived in charm City in some time, but that was the one when I did.

I do have faith in young people's ability to discern right from wrong, and listen critically to what they hear on a daily basis. The problem is, there's hardly any right to choose from.
