Bun B Reacts To Receiving 5 Mics

Yesterday, The Source announced that Bun B’s Trill O.G. was crowned with their classic 5 mic rating. Below, he issued a statement in light of the honor. Speech!

When I started rapping, the highest honor a real MC could aspire to was the coveted 5 mics from Source Magazine. It was only given to the best of the best in hip hop, the cream of the crop so to speak. Those that received the honor were sometimes but not always contested, but what WAS always contested were those that DIDN’t receive the honor. If you’ve ever argued about your favorite MC on a corner, in a barbershop or on the comment section of a blog, then you know what I’m talking about.

For every album labeled a classic, there are dozens of others that people feel deserve the honor. So I realize that people now feel they have to place my album next to others that they feel were more impactful, and argue their case. With social networking being as prevalent as it is in our society, these arguments now take place in a very public arena, which in order to be heard, you often have to be very opinionated and abrasive to stand out. So people, while having no personal hate or malice towards me, will make very loud arguments about The Source’s decision, and the loudest ones will probably get the most attention.

Having been in the music industry almost 20 years, I have learned to receive my accolades with honor and respect, and hold my head high when the hate rains down. I love hip hop just as much or even more than the next person, so I understand the passion behind the argument. At the end of the day, we all want this thing we love to be as real and pure as the day we fell in love with it.

Having said all this, it is with great honor and admiration that I humbly accept this esteemed declaration from the Source Magazine and it’s staff for my album Trill OG, and for those that feel they need to shit on me to argue for another artist or album, don’t worry. The Trill OG can take it! UGK for life!

Bun B

    well said because thats exactly what a lot of people did and they havent even heard the album

  • dirtysouthboy

    Congratulations to Bun B! Glad to see him getting more recognition lately. Da Trill lives on! Now we just gotta wait 4 the Pimp C album!

  • Trizzy

    This is why he is one of the greatest of all time! Love that fucking bastard!

  • Big dave!

    Go head bun!you deserve it big boy!rip pimp c and keep doin ya thing!God Bless you brother!

  • James

    I’m not hating because I think Bun B is good and talented, and Trill OG was real nice, but Eminem and The Roots, and even Big Boi deserved this spot over Trill OG. But whatever, congrats to Bun.

  • jrec

    Props man

    Bun still doin it

    “the highest honor a real MC could aspire to was the coveted 5 mics from Source Magazine” – lame lame lame the roots album is way better

  • jimedwards

    @James my sentiments exactly!! But congrats to Bun B forreal.

  • tm103

    that eminem album isnt even hip hop its pop get the fuck outta here this album was perfectly put together and he killed all expectation

  • B.Dot

    i think the Big boi and maybe the Em album are GREAT albums…maybe 4.5’s…but big up to Bun nonetheless. Well deserved.

  • ronnie_moe

    Recovery is not a 5-mic album……

  • dashing

    ^ And the Roots album is very solid, not 5 mics, but 4.5 as well.

  • Thank Me Hater

    Bun kills every beat he’s on. That’s all I know. Congrats

  • Jp

    This nigga only sold 30-35 thousand copies, his CD is not Classic

  • Thank Me Hater

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE B.Dot. Count as spam every comment that mentions Eminem’s Recovery including this one!

  • dashing

    @ Jp,

    You must be saying that to get attention or sarcastically cause record sales has nothing to do with quality. If that’s the case then Nelly’s first 2 albums would be classics, Chingy’s first album, Ja Rule’s early shit, Soulja Boy etc.

  • ronnie_moe

    @jp Vanilla Ice sold 11 million copies nigga. Does that make his CD a classic?

  • Idsgb

    Haven’t heard the Trill OG or The Roots but Em nor Big Boi deserve 5 Mics. Big Boi was solid, Em lyrical content was the best I heard in awhile but his production and some of his hooks killed the album for me.

  • RapMusic23

    Congrats to Bun B ^^, EM will never ever get 5 mics no matter what he does,because he is white.Hate all you want,but thats a fact.

  • Thank Me Hater

    @ldsgb Yeah that’s are the dark spots on Em’s album. He needs to stick with Dre. His lyricism saved a lot of the songs though.

  • NickeyBlack banning Eminem post on RR

    yes that was very well said, haters wont take notice but they should.

    BIG UP

    Congrats bun b on getting the 5 mics,i dont know why people have to throw in other rappers for and plus the source would not give eminem a 5 mics cause the owner off the source benzino has a beef with eminem so that would never happen.Congrats bun b dont let the haters bother my dude.

    anybody that equates an albums artistic value, based on its sales, is a douche bag, in case u don’t know what a douche bag is, it is a sack that is used to capture the excretion of liquid when a woman cleans her vagina after a week of menstruation…bun b is an MC…and i salute him on getting the recognition as such…

  • http://rapradar.com CantGetRight

    Yeah,5 mics doesnt mean as much as it did 10 yrs ago but I just dont understand how The Source can give Trill OG 5 mics and only give Trill,(Bun’s 1st solo record) which is an overall better cd,only 4 mics? Its some confused mofos up at that office. Thats why the rating to me seems more like an Lifetime achievement award more than anything else because 5 yrs ago when that album dropped,Bun wasnt getting as much recognition as he is now and they viewed him just as a normal rapper.

    And im not gonna even get into the UGK discography. Hell,if Trill OG is 5 mics then Ridin Dirty is fuckin 10 mics. The Underground Kings record from a couple yrs back kills this album as well.

    Congrats to Bun tho,its no hate,its just as a fan I hate seeing him get recognized for his weakest work while his better work gets ignored.

    But I do like the fact that this is sparking debates about albums. I would rather argue over which rapper had the better album ANYDAY over some record sells shit like yall cats enjoy doing on here.

  • NickeyBlack banning Eminem post on RR

    @Mac weasel ….you r the reason why people who might wanna enjoy Eminem end up hating Eminem, especially when you say the best ever and put him over LEGENDS like Rakim who Eminem will never outshine lyrically except only in sales and over TUPAC, BIG, JAYZ, PUN…..i mean plug your computer in the bathroom and bring it with you in a tub full of water…PLEASE!

  • Fredro

    em cd was not 5mic worthy his lyrics were but overall that cd was average when you account lyrics production placement as a whole……bun b album has it all and I was surprised he came through with such a complete album literally a front to back album without the need to skip a track….

  • JustBlazed

    shit i still read “the sauce” they do matter because xxl is wack and half yall cant read….. as far as I know Benzino isnt a part of the source so stop bringing that fool into things. Well deserved to Bun B you are a class act, something you dont see in hip hop CLASS. You could argue any of these albums that were deserved of 5 mics. He might only sell 35k but thats the first week i bet yall he keeps selling half yall don’t even give this dude a chance cause hes not mainstream! Turn off your radio and educate your ipod. Go pick the album and respect the culture of Hip Hop.

  • pissed

    Congrats to Bun, he does desreve the 5 mics, he is a legend and has contributed alot to the culture. I just feel that, 5 mic album are albums that were groundreaking & changed the landscape of hiphop. And while Trill O.G. Is good, I don’t feel Trill O.G. did that. BUT I do feel that early UGK albums like Ridin’ Dirty did. I remember the first time I heard “One Day” and I was in instant UGK fan. I think if anything they should have went back (like they’ve done before) and
    gave THAT album 5 mics.

  • RapMusic23

    NickeyBlack You cant say EM never will outshine Rakim lyrically when they dont have any songs together.I can say the same thing,Rakim will never outshine EM lyrically..And the rest of your little list there is overhyped dead rappers who become legends after they died,exept for Jay.

  • Steeze

    Idiots that think Benzino still has anything to do with the Source DO NOT KNOW HIP HOP!! They got rid of him well over 3 years ago!!! You aren’t rap fans you are idiots!!!

  • mac DIESEL

    GETTIN’ 5 MICS ON THE “SAUCE” IS EQUIVALENT TO GETTIN’ A VMA AWARD!!!! NO KNOCK ON BUN B, BUT HE’S HAD BETTER ALBUMS THAN TRILL O.G.!!!! THE “SAUCE” IS A FUCKIN’ JOKE!!!!

  • jburg

    I would congratulate the man if “5 mics” actually meant something. Who gives a fuck about the source? Half you niggas saying stuff on here won’t even the the magazine and read the article giving him the rating. All this shit is opinion anyways. For every person that says Em had a classic cd there are ten that will say he didn’t just because they don’t like a certain song or just plain don’t like Em. If a nigga think it was classic then it was. Who are you to tell another nigga his opinion of music don’t matter?

    Its niggas like mac WEASEL that ruin it for real Eminem fans. Now I cant even go out and confidently say Eminem in my top 5 without niggas calling me a stan, because of stans like mac WEASEL. I’m sure every mature, real Eminem fan feels the same way. mac WEASELS make real Em fans not even wanna comment on his post either, just so they dont mix up the FANS with the STANS smh.

    Anyway, like i said yesterday. I havent heard this album, but I aint heard people buzzin about it like they did when Big Boi shit dropped so 5 mics dont mean nuffin to me. If XXL give it a XXL, and if Rolling Stone give it a 5 star rating, then im content this a classic. Gotta have one black magazine and one white one cosign an album for it to be classic.

  • jtwizzy

    Damn, how can someone say Recovery is POP? That shit went HARD son. You even listen to that album? Just cuz he had Rihanna and Pink on a couple of hooks? Fuckin retards. Like Pac and Biggie didn’t have fuckin poppy-ass K-Ci and JoJo or 112 on there albums. GTFO.

    Bun put out a solid album, but I’m cockin my head back like Ed Lover…. C’mon son.

  • Hollaatchaboy

    giving 5 mics to Bun B is about the dumbest shit a nigga ever heard.. yall fake ass niggas on here act like yall riding with Bun B.. yall niggas ain’t supporting him or listening to his music. WHY? bc the nigga ain’t that hot. Niggas decide shit is tru in the game and then all you other niggas start saying it to and hop on the bandwagon.

    Nigga Bun B is an “OK” mc at best, go back and check his resume.. the nigga is barely average in his rhymes.. all a nigga’s shit is repetitive no real subject matter and his flow never really changes and its WACK to begin with. And before all you bitch niggas start in with that bullshit “you hatin” shit.. NAH.. I’m bein real nigga.. alotta yall cats must have yo head stuck to far up yo ass cuz you talkin some mad crazy shit…

    Not that 5 mics even matters anymore which is sad bc a nigga like me that grew up running to check the SOURCE to see what a nigga’s album was rated.. but any credibility it MIGHT have had left is all but gone. I agree that a classic ain’t based on sales but here are somethings that I think a classic should be:

    1. Stayin power… something that transends its time and place.. a classic is some shit I could pick up 10yrs from now and pop it in and it was still feel fresh nigga

    2. CONTENT.. a classic album is like a movie from track 1 on.. it takes you on a journey.. and includes some deeper emotions bein discussed.. not just bein trill and that bullshit

    3. LYRICS.. Bun.. already takes a loss on that cuz the nigga just ain’t got it in him.. the nigga don’t make well written songs he just makes club music for the SOUTH.. which we all know it don’t take much thought to do..

    4. Sales can or can’t be included.. BUT a lot of yall niggas just want to try to pretend to be up on some shit that didn’t sell just so you can seem so fuckin unique and cool.. like you on something that no one else is hip too.. this is my thought.. theres a reason why so many hamburgers are sold.. cuz the shit is GOOD..

    ..5. Transends Hip-Hop.. a classic to me appeals to all levels of the music game.. where you got people that wouldn’t normally bump some rap shit playin it.. I remember when Scarface’s 5 mic album came out.. my girl who NEVER listened to Scarface or like that kind of music… that joint became like her favorite CD… thats the shit I’m talkin about.

    I know yall niggas gonna start goin in on this comment.. but fuck it.. I’m bein real niggas.. I respect that Bun get his paper and do his thing.. but sometimes life ain’t fair..

    Some niggas is Kobe and MJ

    and some niggas just Rick Fox… u in the game.. but you if we trade yo ass and put someone else in your spot tomorrow the team still fine.

    In a month(if that long) this album will be forgotten.. that ain’t a classic nigga.

    word.

  • jtwizzy

    Also, I respect it when someone holds down an entire album by their self like Em on Recovery. He had Rihanna and Pink on 2 hooks, Kobe on a hook, and Wayne on one verse. That’s why I respect Em. He puts out a 17 track album with almost ALL SOLO TRACKS. He doesn’t need 20 guest appearances. Bun B has like 10+ features.

    But I’m just gonna say I’m not hating, I DO LIKE BUN B. Just a little confused by this one. But to be honest, it’s THE SOURCE. Em layed them to rest a while back so their “5 Mics” don’t mean shit anymore tbh. Source would NEVER give Em a 5 mic rating.

    “5 mics in the Source? Ain’t holding my fucking breath.”

  • jtwizzy

    Hollaatchaboy pretty much said it best…

  • http://www.1200squad.com kidpotential

    the fact we are even having this argument i think brings back a certain validity to the 5 mics…which i think is probably the best thing to come out of this, no matter who you are a fan of and what you thought of the Trill OG album…Hip-Hop FTW!!!!

  • Hollaatchaboy

    kid.. NAH.. it doesn’t.. the only reason there is an argument is cuz niggas grew up in a time WHERE IT MEANT SOMETHING TO US.. that day and time has passed nigga.. but some of us still hold on to those feelings from back then. I don’t give a fuck about the SOURCE or 5 mics now bc of the politics.

  • Hollaatchaboy

    nigga EM said it best:

    If you lost then you lost shake hands like a man
    and you swallowed it, when the unsigned hype column
    at The Source was like, the only source of light
    When the mics used to mean somethin, a four was like
    you were the shit, now its like the least you get
    three and a half now just means you a piece of shit
    four and a half or five, means you Biggie, Jigga, Nas,
    or Benzino I dont think you even realize
    you playin with motherf*ckers lives, I done watched Dre
    get ****ed on The Chronic, probably cuz I was on it

  • Gordon B.

    I didn’t feel the album, can’t listen to T-Pain, he destroys my ears and Drake’s voice is annoying as hell, the beat on that Pac & Pimp joint didn’t do them justice either.
    Congrats the the man non the less, fuck do I know, right? ;)
    Don’t think there’s been a album this year I would call classic, recovery comes closest.
    It all depends on the definition though if you count a album one will listen to in the years to come on a regular basis a classic then there’s a few, recovery, the good sun, stimulus package and a few others.

  • a

  • B. Digital

    There was a time when you saw an album get 5 mics or even 4.5 mics, you rushed to the record store and bought it. Nowadays, I really haven’t paid any attention to The Source. In fact, I haven’t read their magazine in over a decade. So any rating they provide doesn’t mean much to me.

    My criteria for a “5 mic album” is simple. The album has to have superior lyrical content and the production has to be on point. Also I have to listen from the intro all the way to the outro without fast forwarding (Example: Illmatic, 36 Chambers, Only Built For Cuban Linx (Purple Tape), etc.).

    I’m originally from Houston, TX and I grew up listening to UGK / Bun B. So the moment I heard that it got 5 mics, I had know choice but to listen to the album.. After just 1 listen, I will have to say it’s about a 4.. In my opinion it’s not a classic because it’s not his best work and I strongely believe that anything with a Gucci Mane feature, should not get 5 mics. Now, it’s only 1 listen, so my rating is subject to change within a week or so.

    There were a couple of instances where I just had to fast forward to the next song. But it was cool to hear Tupac, Pimp C, Twista (who I haven’t heard in a minute), and a DJ Premier track.

    Sidenote: I haven’t heard Em and Big Boi’s album all the way through, however, I did hear “How I Got Over” by The Roots and it’s a 4.5.

  • NickeyBlack says “u made me hate Eminem”

    @rapmusic 23……say what you will but Rakim evolutionize the way rappers rhyme today and what kind of song can A HIP HOP GOD make with a Eminem. Em been in the game ten years and you dudes act like his music is the most incredible thing ever. Stan will never be stronger than DEAR MAMA….. WE MADE YOU has nothing on BIG DADDY KANE’S AINT NO HALF STEPPIN……NOT AFRAID will NEVER touch SO MANY TEARS or ME AGAINST THE WORLD.

    I dont know Em music cuz i always felt he was to mentally disturbed with no meaning just flow and he can not be the best alive when my legends are still living but aint selling besides the iconic Jayz. I hope Nas will snatch up the dopest beats ever and show you fake Eminem hip hoppers what lyrics are about.

    Recovery used the same formula Jayz “created” with BP3. As you can see Jayz laid the blueprint for Em to recover cuz relapse was said to be garbage of 2009 of course making BP3 the best hip hop album of 09. Jay didnt have to quickly make another album to satisfy his fans cuz he was confident enough to know that others will SOON FOLLOW.

    OFF TOPIC I KNOW: BIG UP TO THE LEGEND BUN B “5MICS IN THE SOURCE THATS WHOA.” ~~ BLACK ROB

  • Hollaatchaboy

    nigga.. you picked fucked up examples on EM’s side to make your point.. which makes you look full of shit.

    what about Cleaning out my closet? Sing for the Moment? Rock Bottom? Say Goodbye to Hollywood? Solider? My dad’s gone crazy (notably the last verse) If I had, If i get locked up tonight, Beautiful, just to name a few

    see where you slight my nigga em is on this level.. go back to the first album the Slim Shady LP and listen to the content.. then listen to MMLP.. and TES… etc.. the nigga grew and changed with each album bc he got older and his life changed.. he wasn’t broke no more etc.. he kept it real…

    yo favorite rapper still lying about bein in the streets (where most were never at to begin with) and still claiming they movin ounces and smokin niggas daily.. FUNNY i never see all these smoked niggas all over the streets story on the news.. probably cuz they full of shit.

  • NickeyBlack says “u made me hate Eminem”

    @HOLLAATACHABOY…… i dont know Em music nor do i care to even listen. if it was’nt cuz of tv or radio i could’nt pick the songs i mention. Em aint courney but the BOY aint the best alive and thats what makes me hate him cuz not 1 or 2 but maybe a million of you people feel like he the greatest ever and F everybody else like MOS DEF, JAYZ, DEAD PREZ, BIG L, PUN, KOOL G RAP, PRODIGY, NAS, BLACK THOUGHT, KANYE MONCHE ETC……

  • Hollaatchaboy

    you ruined your own argument..

    you just said they you as close minded as the people that you are hating on..

    How can you rate music that you have never even listened too.. the people sayin that nigga EM the best have heard the songs and heard the wordplay.. NOT to mention everytime he has been on a song with the other so called best.. he has killed it.. and delivered a better verse.

    you hate that nigga EM cuz he white.. and you salty that a white dude get more credit then your list.

    MOS DEF can spit.. but for the most part he make songs that aren’t engaging or memorable.. theres a difference between being able to spit and composing good ass songs.

    DEAD PREZ: I can’t respect them cuz they on that whole hate white people niggas.. shit.. move on niggas.. instead of bein hateful towards someone else.. up lift yo self.. and yo people.. you can motivate and uplift niggas without doin it through hate. it take self reflection on what the fuck WE need to do ourselves to fix our situation.

    BIG L.. COULD have been an all time great.. but nigga left this earth before he could produce enough material to qualify in my opinion.. no doubt the potential was there.. but thats all we can look at.. is potential.. not results.

    PUN.. nigga was dope.. and was on his way.. but once again.. nigga needed to be around to put in more work.. not enough of a catalogue.

    Prodigy: see Mos Def. only exception is that Mobb Deep had some hard joints.. once again… a nigga spit.. but his song composing and beat selection is questionable a lot of the time.

    NAS.. don’t think anyone is disputing his name.. probably one of the purer lyricist in the game.. NAS is an artist.. not a rapper.

    Kanye????? get the fuck outta here.. nigga makes good songs.. but I know you can’t honestly believe he up there with the greatest behind the mic.. you take away his production and the nigga just a serviceable MC in the game.

    You can say some shit at the best if you never heard it.. thats like sayin… chicken is gross and you ain’t never tested it.. but all the niggas around you is like shit.. that shit is the best thing ever!! lol ha

    feel me

  • Fredro

    what makes wayne and eminem so different…….they both say clever shit that nobody can relate to……they dont paint pictures they just rhyme….

  • Hollaatchaboy

    you must have never listened to EM to say that.. quit listening to JUST what is played on the radio nigga.

  • Word 2.0

    @Fredro

    Em dont paint pictures? Stan? Cleaning out My Closet? What? Do you niggas just listen to Ems first singles and say fuck everything else. Dont speak on something you know nothing about

  • Hollaatchaboy

    Soon as a verse starts I eat it at MC’s heart
    what is he thinking? How not to go against me? Smart.
    And its absurd how people hang on every word.
    I’ll probably never get the props I feel I ever deserve
    But I’ll never be served my spot is forever reserved
    If I ever leave earth that would be the death of me first.
    Cause in my heart of hearts I know nothing could ever be worse.
    That’s why I’m clever when I put together every verse
    My thoughts are sporadic, I act like I’m an addict
    I rap like I’m addicted to smack like I’m Kim Mathers.
    But I don’t want to go forth and back in constant battles
    The fact is I would rather sit back and bomb some rappers.
    So this is like a full blown attack I’m launching at them
    The track is on some battling raps who want some static
    Cause I don’t really think that the fact that I’m Slim matters
    A plaque of platinum status is whack if I’m not the baddest.

  • Hollaatchaboy

    There’s people that love me and people that hate me
    But it’s the evil that made me this backstabbing, deceitful, and shady
    I want the money, the women, the fortune, and the fame
    That Means I’ll end up burning in hell scorching in flames
    That means I’m stealing your checkbook and forging your name
    Lifetime bliss for eternal torture and pain
    Right now I feel like just hit the rock bottom
    I got problems now everybody on my blocks got ‘em
    I’m screaming like those two cops when 2pac shot ‘em
    Holding two glocks, I hope your doors got new locks on ‘em
    My daughter’s feet ain’t got no shoes or sock’s on ‘em
    And them rings you wearing look like they got a few rocks on ‘em
    And while you flaunting them I could be taking them to shops to pawn them
    I got a couple of rings and a brand new watch you want ‘em?
    Cause I never went gold of one song
    I’m running up on someone’s lawns with guns drawn

  • Hollaatchaboy

    and finally

    [Verse 1]
    I thought I had it all figured out, I did
    I thought I was tough enough to stick it out with Kim
    But I wasn’t tough enough to juggle two things at once
    I found myself layin’ on my knees in cuffs
    Which should’ve been a reason enough, for me to get my stuff and just leave
    How come I couldn’t see this shit myself, it’s just me
    Nobody couldn’t see the shit I felt
    Knowin’ damn well she wasn’t gonna be there when I fell, to catch me
    The minute shit was heated she just bailed
    i’m standin’ here swingin’ on like thirty people by myself
    I couldn’t even see the millimetere when it fell
    Turned around saw Gary stashin’ the heater in his belt
    Saw the bouncers rush him and beat him to the ground
    I just sold two million records, I don’t need to go to jail
    I’m not about to lose my freedom over no female
    I need to slow down
    Try to get my feet on solid ground, so for now i’m…

    if that shit don’t paint a picture for you.. then you got issues nigga..

  • Hollaatchaboy

    ‘Classic.’ A book which people praise and don’t read

    -Mark Twain

    Damn, looks like people here didn’t even read what Bun wrote. They doin exactly what he mentioned, talkin random ignorant shit about his album.

    It don’t matter though, “THE TRILL OG CAN TAKE IT”. Props to this humble ass muhfucka

    I remember traveling through 3 cities in LA to get Climatic just because the Source gave it 5 nice. I remember when BeNd Nubian got 5 move first time out and everybody followed because of the Source. I can go on for a long time, but truth is when Lil Kim got it for Naked Truth, all credibility went out the window. They’ve had chances to redeem with albums after, like Kanye, but they haven’t, which is where all this hate is coming from. I really like the album and understand the rating even if I don’t agree, but how can a generation of 50 Cent lovers and master appreciate an true to .life album that’s not.marketed to love? Congrats Bun and keep up the good work at such a rare age in Hip Hop.

  • carter

    83 million records sold,ARTIST of the DECADE…. Enough said.

  • Drucifer

    Congrats to Bun because He’s always been under-rated. Havent heard the album yet but I
    ll check it out

    Buit a source rating is meaningless, The last album that got 5 Mics was Lil Kims Naked Truth album(lol)…………..Nuff said

    But, congrats to him regardless, the way the game is he aint gonna sell shit but at least he got some well deserved accolades. Hopefully people will buy it if they like it so much

  • socratesknows

  • eware466

    It really don’t matter how many cd he sales cause that don’t determine how good a cd is, it only shows how “not important good hip hop is”, but only if you have a dance hook or phrase like “Pretty Boy Swagg”, which is one of the worst rapping song of all time and I’m not knocking him, get your paper, but it is the world we live in now. Lyrics come second now, so most people can’t understand good hip hop(lyrics that is)…Congrats Big Bun B, you deserve it!!!

  • chris

    he turned into a mainstream faggot!
