Here's a pointless story: In high school, my friend Chris inherited his older brother's car and a CD. That CD was Master P. When we would drive around like 16-year-old kids do, we would play that terrible, terrible record. It was awful. Yesterday I heard our "favorite" track and it's been stuck in my head since. So I'm sharing it with you all. Enjoy -— but you won't because it sucks.
