Boi 1da is cool and all, but there is something about his beats that just sounds…for lack of a better description, plain. He got a good look working with such a hi-profile artist as drake early on, but if he didnt I dont really think he would get the same looks he gets now. Not hating, I just think his beats are really really touchable, lol.

LOL, Real talk though Tony, I dont even want to come off as a hater but something about the boy beats just aint….thorough for all this hype. I’m genuinely happy for cats that are nice. I wish the best for them, but when really really average people get great looks I feel the urge to say just that. LOL, re-reading it, it sounds really haterish LMAO, but I cant help how I feel about boi 1da. lol. He’s not wack by any stretch!! its just, he’s not wowwing me at all. lol. I honeslty mean no disrespect, lol.
