Congrats Lu. But ytf does people keep calling the Nas album Nas?!! It is untitled dumb asses!! I swear these companies is soo stupid. Itunes WAS doing the same thing! You can tell that they don't give two f*cks about rap or hip hop.

The grammys are a F**king joke. Lil wayne gets 8 nominations !! Flo rida gets a nomination!! It will be one of the saddest days in music when lil wayne wins grammys. I pray lu wins at the grammys but sadly most of the grammy voters will not have remembered the cool since it came out almost a year ago. His album is easily the best in the nominees. Same goes for the other noms (paris tokyo especially was IMO the best HIP HOP single of 2008). Unfortunatly though HIP POP rules music now and we can't do anything about it.
