Dope line of the week

Posted on Thu, Mar 27, 2008 at 11:41 AM

Is it weird that I'm nearly brought to tears whenever there's a glimmer of hope that Andre 3000 is still rapping? Thought so. Glimmer. Make an honest living but make a crooked killing or do a bit of both until you're holding on a million. Brilliant, you got one foot...
