  1. Even christian rap has some sort of demographics….

    still LMAO @ 5k from Yelawolf…(good luck with selling his CD Marshall)

    I wonder when will the industry go completely digital, and ditches the CD format altogether.

    5 years?….10?

  2. Hey just wanted to let you know that the album cover is wrong that’s the previously released album from October 2010 that sold 26k the first week.

    Also it’s just Reach Records which is based out of Atlanta.
