Are You Hotly Anticipating The Carter 4

Now Playing…

For some reason, they keep letting this Khaled guy release records.  I wouldn’t mind so much if they were actually good records and at one point, there was some novelty to having every artist from the South not currently incarcerated (and Fat Joe) on a single track with Akon or T-Pain on the hook.  Too bad that idea got stale right after Khaled’s second album hit stores…4 YEARS AGO. But for some reason, Khaled continues to have a recording career despite the fact he has little actual musical talent (I mean, he says he’s a producer but 1 beat every 3-4 years?

Note: In an effort to counteract what Amp subjected you to earlier today (that Joomane shit), I thought it would be a good idea to resurrect an old post from the blog.

Anyway, you can call this”looks like he’s retarded rap.” Still, it beats Lupe’s “recycling bin rap.” Enjoy.
