Very well, then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)” Kevin Gates, too, contains multitudes, though admittedly many of his internal legion just want to punch you in the nose. The world’s foremost jailhouse behavioral therapist is […]
Torii MacAdams is chillin with his man Rusty In seventh grade, all my friends played the Fainting Game. The preferred method was to hyperventilate with back to wall, then have a friend compress one’s chest, inducing a heady, oxygen-deprived euphoria.
