Cam tells the 1515 boys, that despite going to college, he never graduated high school.

“I went to college and didn’t graduate from high school. I got to

college and my coach brought the GED to my room like, ‘Here, you

graduated, congratulations.’ Even though it’s a junior college … I

never took my SATs coming out of high school. I was playing basketball

and this junior college wanted me to come down and play basketball.

When I got there, my GED was sitting on the bed waiting for me. I never

took a test or anything.” 

Amazing. *Shreds High School diploma*

Drake Hot 97 Freestyle (Funkmaster Flex)

Last night, the pride of Canada kicked a freestyle over Jigga’s “You, Me, Him, & Her” and Raekwon’s “Incarcerated Scarfaces” on Funkmaster Flex’s show. I thought that stopped doing these kinds of things over at 395 Hudson St. *shrugs shoulders*

“I’m in Aston doing donuts, I’m will kill the game and never send it my condolence.”
