you're tight ...too many to list....I guess heads are not on this cause they want to follow the "rhyme form" rule...which in all honesty is true........but I'll make an exception cause I know that the kats that frequent this board don't always post in the general hip hop forum so this may be the only way to get our input on this with out emailing all of us seperately........SO in the interest of finer journalism, I'll give you 30 joints that keep me open...for various reasons but I think they all rep hip hop at it's finest........
