Between these contests, the YouTube show, free romantic advice, and an entirely free record, I'm not sure how much more Slug and Ant can give. At this rate, Slug and Ant will either have to show up to your doorstep with a new car, Oprah-style, or, shit, one of Brother Ali's kidneys. Watch your (lower) back, Ali!
When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold is out on April 22nd.
