    Just release ONE FUCKING SONG instead of teasing the shit out of people.


    i'm convinced that MCHG will be a booklet of lyrics.

    See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. Col. 2:8

    Rick Rubin is a [respected] couch potato

  • Tiffany Tipsy Dubz

    He gave you free will and ten commandments to follow, which are really all basic common sense that many people have a hard time following. Jay z worships the devil of course he would turn his viewers away from god.
    Wake up before its to late.

    Wor he could be a atheist dumbass

  • ChooseToStandnotKneel

    Where is "thou shall not rape" in the 10 commandments? Seems odd that he forgot that one.

    Just because he has different ideas about our being that doesn't mean he doesn't believe in god, he actually mentioned that he believes god gave us free will, maybe he's just not a Christian
