Sometimes I just have to write these bad rascals up because of the wonderful pop name associations.

Get the blow by blow that was blowing in the wind and find out why both Tyler and Minaj were way off base with their assumptions.

If you were to put me in a fantasy music ship and asked me to concoct a concept for an album, it would be something like the upcoming release The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams.
