Hit it and quit it? Nah

Juicy J is not alone- there are times when we all would like to hit it and quit it. Obviously, who wouldn't? Life has shown me that I'm not the only one who would like to do what I want to do when I want to do it, get the results I desire with whatever … Continue reading Hit it and quit it? Nah
