    I'm surprised more people don't credit Action Bronson with inspiring them. Action Bronson is on his way to Lil Wayne status. When Wayne was building a buzz, he put out a shitload of material, just like Bronson is doing now. All Bronson needs is one crossover single. Then people will start featuring them on their songs, and then he will put out a classic album. Even if Gunplay doesn't shout out Bronson, and up-and-coming rapper will soon enough.

    gunplay aint bad at all, he just gets hated on cuz he's associated with Officer William Roberts aka the fakest rapper of all time aka Gusto from CB4..listen to gunplays shit and judge him based on that, not on his association with Officer Ricky's fraudulent ass

    The key to eating a black and white cookie is that you wanna get some black and some white in each bite. Nothing mixes better than vanilla and chocolate. And yet still somehow racial harmony eludes us. If people would only look to the cookie, all our problems would be solved.
