      Yo Mao! I denounce you as Chairman. Decent questions you had, but what the fuck. How can you share a couch, let alone breath the same air as the “God” and fail to bring up the process behind writing “Lyrics of Fury”, the most scientific, metaphoric, ferocious rhyme ever written in history???!!!
