      It never ceases to amaze me how people claim they don't care about something yet take the time out of their lives to comment on that very thing they don't care about.

    She is dope (and fine too!) I knew she was a hip hop head at heart! That's a good look for him. Featuring Norah on his album is nothing compared to producing Esparanza's new project, so much so that it's not worth mentioning!
