agree with Josh. not only do I not understand the notion of bodying one all day, but I can't fathom what loading an extended clip would have to do with it. explicit version by default please.

EDIT: or maybe I should've read the FAQ. the explicit versions ARE default. still, unfortunate situation here.

The censored version makes me feel dirty :/

What does "body 'em all day" even mean?

i love nas. he has to be good and he is.

m.baker after looking at your bookmarked songs, you truly have no right to hate on Nas, all that commercial crap you listen to is why music in general is dying a slow death. As for talking about someones child like that really shows the full scope of your ignorant mindset. Nas' child will live a better life than you will ever provide for your son/brother or daughter/sis t e r . |xNxMxEx|
