  2. I'm probably going to get hate but I honestly don't really care because this is my opinion.

    Muslims are so overdramatic. So what if she used part of the Quran in her song, it's not offensive. However I will say I'm happy YG indeed up releasing an alternative version with out the verses since that religion is sexist and homophobic when you actually read the Quran.

  3. YG ENT / FAMILY HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE SCANDAL TARGET MOST SCANDALS BUT THEY MANAGE EVERYTHING WELL
    THATS WHY MY MIND AND HEARTH STAYS LOYAL TO YG ENT / FAMILY
    PEOPLE MIGHT SAY ITS THE WORST COMPANY BUT FOR ME AND YG FAMILY FANS THEIR THE BEST COMPANY

  4. Hinding evidence can lead to alot of jail years
    I didn't know what the Seungri ( idk if his name its right ) noise was about until now
