· best moment(s) of 2004
tie between when they told me "IndieInBurns" sold out and the NBA brawl
· worst moment(s) of 2004
when my grandma had to go to the hospital. She aight tho!
· what I'd like to see in 2005
- people actually listening to the words of my songs before they review them
- more people buying my shit
- more people coming to my shows
- more shows
- more money for shows
- more banging girls trying to run their game on me
- it'd also be nice if all them songs I've done that have been turned in and are waiting to drop from the past year or two would actually COME THE FUCK OUT.
· what I don't want to see in 2005
- the opposite of all the stuff I just said
- and no more wack "I carry heat like oven delivery truck" rappers. Stop that shit!!!!! Early!!!!
· hip hop in 2005 will be...
terrible for you wack rappers; I will eliminate all of you in one fell swoop! Early!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
· my new years resolutions
- 1. to use more of my day to be productive instead of complaining about why I'm not more famous
- 2. to further perfect the art of having sex with very beautiful women without having any social skills whatsoever
- 3. get rich or die trying. EARLY!!!!
