CHOCK FULL OF JUNK ::
I won't bombard with the newest music just because it's new...and popular. Quality...something interesting or a piece to evoke emotion, mood, mode...perhaps nostalgia is what you'll find here. (For everything else) this is also a journal of sorts. Go explore.

"Drama" (Feat. Joell Ortiz & Game) Ghostface Killah
Ghost’s skits are always dope and mostly funny. Every day shit, but poignantly pointedly fresh. (Seems redundant but fnck it.) Everyone is on point on this song.
