    All you have to do is look at the name, “Sucka”, “Da”, “1st & 15″, etc., and you know what’s up with that and you truly talented artists, stay away from these fronts. Not only will they rip you off with their ghetto high jinx and they will dis-credit you. So now ask yourself, who’s worst? The black or white companies?
