Virgo really should of had Slick Rick & or AZ instead of a hack job like Ludacris.

One song per lead artist rule innit.

I do love that song, though, obviously.

Never heard Veronica before it goes, I hope I never catch a dick tumour. didn't Krs have a good one of these?

It's not the most prominent in the beat but I like King Tees Squeeze Yo Ballz.

Technically the Krs song is good, but I just can't listen to his voice anymore without being irritated.

I was at a funeral a few months ago and spotted Dave The Ruf.

Charles said...

But you already have two songs by the Ruler, why not three?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Because one is Doug E. Fresh & Slick Rick, while the other is Slick Rick featuring Doug E. Fresh.

Charles said...

Neither AZ nor Slick Rick are Virgos, though!
