    SECTION 80 KENDRICK LAMAR!!! Wassup wit lyracist of the year how you gone put nicki and wayne put Kendrick big krit j.cole somebody other than them i got respect for both nicki and wayne but they dont say shit. Wayne could sell 10 million in a week that doesnt mean his album is classic it just means it was properly hyped, OD, Section 80,Kendrick Lamar EP better then anything wayne has put out. Kendrick gets you thinken,positively Kendrick isnt the future he is here, you dont need to give him the crown cuz he just gone put music better than anybody in my opinion which is what you should worry bout. One more thing Kendrick Drop temptaions soon please.
