Wow. Cognitive dissonance is a bitch. This all stems from the fact that your dick is smaller than your thumb and your bitch loves riding my big black dick. I'm that *****.

I couldn't tell ya what songs he's on. The only time I hear about him is when he's getting locked up which seems to happen pretty often. I did hear a rumor that he was changing his name yet again from titty boy to two chains and now to one chain and a big ring though. This may have been his pulic announcement.
