Diamond D I still love his stuff. Stunts Blunt & Hip Hop is just the shit. Why was he so overlooked on the Blogger list from last year? Seems like it is right up everyone's alley.

'Nuff respect for the industrious post. Can't recall the specific joints at this hour in the morning in the Big East, but Black Thought had a verse where he said, "Throw your verse like a javelin," and Mix-A-Lot said, "Huggin' more girls than Bela Karolyi."
