Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

damn ya that was solid. thanks man.

The only two CD's I have are "The Infamous" and "Hell on Earth". Everything else has been trashed. I still keep "The Infamous" in my car. When i'm not listening to "nothing" or NPR, I play it quite often actually.

Havoc & Prodigy (especially) have always been on another level to me. They've always seemed more like master story tellers with an incredible soundtrack, than rappers. Sure, the dark & rugged world they rap about lures people in, but it's how they told (rapped) it that made them unique & made their albums absolute masterpieces, IMHO. I don't particularly enjoy "drug game rap" either, that's the thing.. like was mentioned in the eulogy: "Survival of the fittest", "Cradle to the grave", "Hell on Earth", it wasn't a pretty picture.

Prodigy was especially patient & methodical in his delivery.

RIP

love how this came out.. motivated by this quote: "Real freedom is having nothing. I was freer when I didn't have a cent."
