So many of my drafts start when I’m drunk. Some of them even get finished (later, much later).
Those all sound good to me. And i got your email!
*Sigh* Here we go. #NoJudgement please.
I did it, PJ. I launched my own blog. I’m still playing with the technical pieces, but I love my freedom to create through the written word. I love recalling stories of my childhood and writing about them, growing up in the South, the international travel, the people I’ve met through my multicultural adventures (I…
ugh: “An,” not “A.”
lol. who are you telling. i have no idea how it made it that far with a jacked up title.

Yes, Peej, the Soulja Boy content I need!! There are so many levels to that interview, and I went through all of em.
I HATE Soulja boy. I can’t STAND him. But his impact on the genre as a whole is pretty damn unmatched. And I’m glad you mentioned 21 Savage who is a FAR better person then people give him credit. If you listen to 21's interviews, you sense a person who’s been raised right. Dude is monotonous as all hell, but very…
He first caught my attention when he talked about his addiction to porn and reconnecting with his wife. Like he actually *gets* it.

Terry Crews is just the best.
