Oooooh have mercy! I could care less about most rappers but I've genuinely missed Petey! He is a damn great guy regardless if he just got out of the pokey, he's awesome and I can't wait until he writes some new songs to blow frown face Kanye out of the game he seems to think he is still relevant in.
