Re: AMF Favorite Songs of the 2010s - RESULTS

What's amazing is that not a single song from MBDTF has shown up so far. Which means that we're about to get at least 5 songs off the album in the top 200. What five are you thinking of? I can think of four... (if you don’t want to post here for spoilers we can continue in the prediction thread) Lo...

I'm going to say there's about a 0% chance that Kanye can actually win. That's ridiculous to say.

Betting sites are giving him 33:1 to win the presidency, so they at least take him seriously. Trump wasn't taken seriously at first either. Edit: Or I guess on avg it's a little higher, like 60:1.

The presentation is fine as it is, but I just have to mention that I like Wolves OG version from Yeezy Season 1. TLOP version has an added verse that's kinda cringe. For example it has the follow/swallow line rehashed when it was already perfect on Yeezus. Just sounds like a cheap copy.
