    note how i said double drop it.

    the intro is good... admittedly... downhill from the drop. double droppin it with Too Bad VIP by taxman is a good one ;)

    and how is the power of rah a Fail?

    its a fail at the best of time to be honest..... as a tune on its own.... FUKIN SIK..... mixed with anything..... power of NAH!!!
