    Trumpers United for this BS. Worst album in years. Pure trash. How do you make an album about your mother and have people that abuse and torment woman on your album?

    I live for Sam’s writing style. Dizzying decibels of buzz. Come on, Journalist.

    I will not be listening to this, nor Drake. Nothing a man who says slavery was a choice can tell me about life nor a man who impregnates p*** stars wanting me to empathize with him.

      He said what he said, deal with it. He told no lies!

      Kayne is suffering internally & has experienced a failed marriage & multiple friendships. He honestly has nothing but his Republican fans who will turn on him once he slips up.

      Good luck with appeasing the very people who only like you because you kiss a$$ & perform menstrel shows on a world stage.
