    1. cory booker is the man! even living in OZ i have heard of him, and i have nothing but respect for him. Saw him in a documentary a while ago on how the elections went down over there, and he lived in an apartment with run of the mill folks for 8 years. Respect!!! He was recently on the PBS show finding your roots too (great show btw). Politicians should look to him as a role model, and have no doubt he is inspiring someone to be a better person/politician. Love that dude!
    2. Mobb Deeps days are behind them IMO just haven’t really checked them for years. Blood Money i think was the last album i copped from them. oh well
    3. Big things indeed may become of this tech
    5. Animals are crazy with how smart they can be, i live in a rural area and i hunt so i get to witness some of there behaviour in a natural setting and a lot of people would be surprised at the shit they do. (i only kill introduced feral species. they fuck the environment up here. i ain’t a killhappy hunter)
    8. Keyboard warriors making threats SMH

    1. Get Mayor Booker a cape! Super Mayor! That was DOPE! I’ve been a fan, but this shines him in a new light.

    Is it just me, or is XXL biting your shit extra hard? First with the lists, now have you saw the “quick hitter” headlines? They shoulda just put you on rather than jack all your ideas.

    Hologram ‘Pac?! I know everyone saw video of that shit. Was it projected on a screen or did they really get down with some R2D2 shit and make a 3D hologram? Shit was eerie. Something about zombie rappers performing live is just a bit much for me to process. It was like the Walking Dead and Up in Smoke tour had an illegitimate hologram baby. Cool ass idea, unsettling delivery.
