        Yep got that, been rocking with Blu since below the heavens. They need a website for all the real hip hop . And let people know they don’t have to be a slave to the radio garbage.

    This guy took the oath look at the artwork on the back, the color scheme black and red and the blackwards text.

    Its no coincidence that him and Drake are new best friends.

    Now all of sudden hes number one

    • Aaron Edwards

      Look at the back cover there are a number of signs that are clues.

      Ie the 8 anarchy symbols, look up what the anarchy symbol reprensents

      Not to mention the devil head

      Then you have the numbers ‘616’ all these things have secret meanings they are not random

      You think he just put randam drawings on his back album?

      They are all very siginifcant

      • Steven Harvey

        i totally agree but the album is dope so most wont be able to see past the smoke and mirrors

      • Aaron Edwards

        I wouldnt know cos i dont even listen to the bullshit (hip hop) no more not even jay, kanye, kendrick its all the same. You listen to it and your inviting the spirits into you, your home and your life.

        Once you stop listening for a month and come back you will see everything with a much clearer eye and it will sound as demonic as it is.

        Your right it may be dope but dope is not good for you ask a dope fiend.

    I Always thought the Black UK culture was always really authentic and Rough. One of my favorite shows is the Show “Top Boy” on Netflix about everyday in the Hood in UK.

      They are real out in the U.K. They don’t play. I’ve been out there…

      People might not get shot much because of the gun laws but fists, machetes,bats on deck all day. Plus they just don’t tolerate f***ery like we do here…
