GEM: Comments will make your wallet fat. 🤑
Still the best class yet.
Interesting to go back and check these classes to see who stood the test of time
Bleep, did Pill have any standout tracks? OJ Da Juiceman had a bit of buzz surrounding him because of Gucci from what I remember. I fw Fashawn, that man can put in work. As for the rest, I think most of us know the story with them.
Oh shit… I’m not familiar with Donnis either
Best class for sure RIP Nip
