    Young Guru has to be the most underrated beat makers out there today. I listened to Blueprint 2 off of Blueprint 2 the other day, and the way he blended that Good, Bad and Ugly sample with the drums was just amazing... This dude earned my respect... 'Unleash the flutes on 'em Guru!'...

    My boss, Birdman takes care of his engineers so they aren't foreced to get second jobs to put food on the table. That snake Jay-Z needs to step his game up and take care of the people who got him to the top. Guru, come down to YMCMB headquarters in New Orleans and you'll be taken care of.
