The Game: Blood Money Year of The Wolf Album Unreview

All right guys, I figured I would switch it up and write up something a lil different for y’all, just in case track-by-track reviews aren’t your thing. Nowadays the words rap and rapper get used a lot, but not in the same way they used to be. You see, rap isn’t just a genre; it’s […]
