  1. Why am I seeing this bullshit? I don’t give a shit about hip-hop and all of the jailbirds associated with it should be lined, shot, and dumped in a shallow grave. (and no, I’m not white.)

    4:10 future don’t drink lean so he a lying see nigga

    4:35 also funny he didn’t get the white girl to say the nigga bit

  3. This is the way I see it, if it originated in Houston then leave it all to Houston.. cuz all this new rappers are making us look bad.. In Houston we seen it all, the dead’s of are legends (Dj Screw, Pimp C n Big Moe). If them new schoolers don’t learn what the old schoolers been through. Then I highly recommend them not fuck with this shit.. Lean is a real drug that gets you hook like crazy..
