As mch as Adam did some very good & positive things in his life, I can't say that sleeping with a 15 year old was one of them. Tiffany limos was a kid when they dated! Holy f*ck. It also seems that he had a rampant Asian fetish. Tiffany limos, Lisa Ann cabasa, Aura Walker, Dechen Wengdu. He definitely liked a certain flavor that much is obvious and they all were a lot younger than him too. It's funny how people overlook this fact cos he's a musical pioneer. He liked young Asian girls, it ain't right. Good f*cking MC though.
