    Stop calling yourself Tunechi. Stop rapping about pussy. Call DJ Drama. Move to Atlanta. Release 12 Mixtapes in 12 months. Drop the Carter V on your own label. Drop the mic.

    He has probably the most annoying voice I've ever heard in my entire life. His "rap" sucks big time. He is ruining so many good songs: Nicki's High School, Drizzy's HYFR, just to name a few. Thank god I can edit most of his rap parts out of songs.
