      Thanks for letting us know that you are way too hip to know the kid… In reality, you are way too old, irrelevant, and completely out of touch, but cool for you bro.

        Reality is that more and more these days, “artists” use promotion over substance. How many rappers and hip hop “stars” simply get into hock buying cars, clothes and jewelry to fake it before they make it, or use negative press to get attention and build a reputation? This is one of those cases.

        The numbers on this guy just don’t add up to fame. Who cares that he performed with Beyonce. He’s small potatoes.

        Also, thanks for personally attacking me. Classy.

    Then that mix w/ new tech should do the trick.
