    jesus christ, jigga. 5 minutes? one take? off the dome? like you kidding me? that's the type of thing non-hip-hop fans needs to know so they can gain some respect for the game. that is truly remarkable. and i know they could be lying but i believe it.

    45 King is a nutcase! But a fucking genius nonetheless. What a character. I respect that man.
