Old Age Hip-Hop vs. New Age Hip-Hop

I had the book “The Big Payback” on my wish-list on Amazon for about 2 years. I would always look past it and just buy things I quickly saw, liked and purchased…or I just always bought the other things that were on my wish-list. I finally decided to stop being so cheap, and purchase “The […]
