Watch out for the canibus diss from Clef, its meant to be off tha hook! I am a fan of both canibus, and pre-fugee split Clef, so I don't mind who wins that one, but I am always up for a good battle!

A feature in an English newspaper "the times", says Meth and Red are promoting a brand of teas and soft drinks and they have sold out in stores. I cant imagine the parents will be too happy bout their kids saying "I wanna be like meth and red!".
