    (Don’t) hit the pussy if the shit is blisterin’!” Knowledge God!! 😎😂🔥🎯🐐💯 #GodsSon 🙏🏾

  2. So much heat on here. Dr Knockboot is the reason I got into having session musicians replay samples. Couldn’t get  a clean chop, plus no stems. There’s also ‘Nas is Like’.

  3. Call me crazy but because I was born in 91 and been a huge Jay-Z Stan all my life, I never liked Nas. Never listened to him— you’d never know that today though, I absolutely love that man.
