It's kinda amazing how ignorant writers in the 'new' Vibe can be. Real glad Tdot native, Drake got his shine on, but the article's author is kinda lost still. Apparently, the last person to shine in the U.S., by her calculations is Snow! Wow! Just wow, Mindbender was right... Ummm, if I am not mistaken Kardinal's Dangerous was the biggest tune of 2008, going gold. Maybe this is some intentional hateration cause really this article does not make sense to me otherwise
