I wish I could say "good for him, he deserves it, his album was great". The truth is, it was quite average but (sadly) one of the best releases in 07.

yea ain't no denying he got a heavy girl following.."mainstream" wise he is in the absolute perfect situation possible..the women love the fuck outta him, yet he remains with good street cred so the "street folks" respect him

his album was damn good, far from the best of the year though, but it had bangin tracks (help is coming is 1 of the best hiphop songs this year)

i believe they are the ones that fuel record sales...i could be wrong though...I do agree that TI Vs Tip was an average record(King>>>TIVs.Tip). However the rap game itself is average right now.

it's a lie to say that dude has skills, plus the fact that 99% of his fans wear high heals

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."
