ha, that shit is crazy. it's good to see roots getting some cover love though, i remember being tempted to do "The Seed 2.0" for this show at school. yeah. i pussied out. then again the teachers would have had a fit with that shit "I push my seed in her bush for life...."

have you guys heard the system of a down cover of Wu-Tang's "Shame On A Nigga". now that is some crazy shit. i dont even like system of a down.
