Home Sweet Home though? Random af, I wonder what they said about that song in their chapter?

Worth it for the instrumental

copped…too bad about the wait

So glad Mr. Coleman is returning with another entry. I feel like he could drop 10 of these books and not run out of material. 3rd Bass album is probably the weakest link here though haha

I pre-ordered. Not sure why they chose that Smif-N-Wessun joint. It’ll be nice to have the instrumental, but still. Why not put out some kind of unreleased joint? Oh well. Can’t wait for the book though… the first one is dope as fuck!!
