My boy Rob and his homegirl are throwin an 80's party in April and i was like thats wassup. i already own several pairs of Cazals, a gucci link, a dookie rope, a two finger ring, bucket hat and a Fila joggin suit. but i was like "naw, i need to do something to really DO IT at the party", so i was jammin some old school Rakim (Paid in Full to be exacty) and i was like "thats it, i'm gonna get a Dapper Dan like jump off made for the party". yeah yeah, i know the shit is gonna be fake, but its a fuckin costume, so i don't give a fuck. but now i have to go to my tailor and show him images on what i want now and i might do something like the joints above (without the 7% shit on it though). if i decide to do it, i'll post pics of it. peace.
(yeah, keep smilin nigga because its gonna get REAL sad REAL soon....)
As an avid dancer myself (yes, ya boy acts a fool on the dance floor, ask about me), i'm constantly peepin dances from across the nation due to the fact that i've lived alot of places and have family everywhere. BUT i also make it a point to recognize where i get shit from and give props and due respect. SOME people don't and the biggest culprit is that nigga Soulja Boy and his constant "Swag Snatchin" and jackin peoples movies for his own shit. for example:
Tha Dougie out of Dallas (not the same as Doug E. Fresh, but even they gave him props)
you can see right here, he can't even do the shit. but wait a gosh darn minute...
now, this nigga is a pro? jeenkies..
then theres this dance....
Tha Down-Tha-Way outta Cincinatti..
and what is this i see?....
now its the "BIrd Walk"?
come on SB, this shit is gettin sad. at least be original fam.....
While the West Coast OBLITERATED the East Coasts version, they all have the same message: Stop the Violence. for those who know or don't know, one of my lil brothers is facing a murder charge right now even though the gunman confessed that he was the one who killed the kid. but either way, it was over bullshit that REALLY didn't matter. if you got beef with somebody, handle it correctly with fists or words. shit, i've destroy MANY people off my words alone. but seriously, its not that serious.
also, when can we get a South version of either of these tracks? can we get that happening sometime soon.....PLEASE?!?!

Will, i KNOW you're gonna peep it.

Blogger or somebody done caught me slippin and jacked a nigga. i had a post on here about the new Dr. Dre track "Topless" and the next thing i know, i'm on here checkin my posts because i'm noticing my shit looks a lil off. then i go back to my drafts and its like that shit never existted. WTF?!? is that how we doin? we erasin' niggaz posts like that, fam? wooooooooow....
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!! about FUCKIN time. and they will be $150 meaning i will more than likely be copping between 2-4 pairs of these IF not more. YES, thats about $300-$600 but i don't give a fuck because: A) I have the duckets to do so and WILL have the duckets to do so by that time, either way i will have the funds. and B) I.......LOVE.....THIS......SHOE!!!! i wanted them SO bad when i was in middle school and i remember watching Showtime at The Apollo and Outkast was performing "ATLiens" and Big Boi had the white and red striped Polo on and these and my mouth just DROPPPED. and then i was watchin Homeboyz In Outter Space and Flex was rockin 'em (he always had the newest, freshest Nikes on) and i was like okay, its official. then......my boy Elliot Jenkins came to school with a cast on one leg and THESE on the other foot and i was like "this is that bullshit". but they sold out and i was assed out. so this time.......they are MINE!!
Do The Right Thing Air Jordan 1 pack
i saw pics of these along with the other colors and i WILL be getting these. i had some "metallic" Forces back in 97-98 that i "hulled" out (houston slang) and i could never find them again but i'm REALLY fealing the simplistic look on these and peep the "kinte cloth" interiors on them shits. JB is really brining me back into the fold this year.....

and the fucked up thing is my brother didn't have shit to do with it. they didn't even come for him, they came for my other brother asking if he wanted to roll to the store but he refused, so Spencer said he wanted to go. people who know my brother know that while he WILL fight somebody, he's not mentally ready to kill somebody like me. this is an A and B college student who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and i'm just proud that he's holdin it down and keepin his head up about the situation and making me laugh about how this shit needs to hurry up because he paid for this whole semester of school and these cops aren't gonna pay his student loans. and once the truth gets out, i'm whoopin that white boys ass because according to my brother Eric HE was the one who came to the house because Eric KNEW his ass. i swear, man. i'm bout to fuckin lose my damn mind right now over this shit. i'll keep yall posted and pray for my lil brother. that other nigga admitted to shooting that kid, so let my fuckin brother go.

50 CENT - Tia Told Me.......damn, "Fif", did you REALLY have to go in on Kamala like that? Honestly, the only way Ross can come back at 50 is if he somehow can find 50 doin some REAL gay shit on film with a copy of his identification, social security number and 5 witnesses.
i remember it was the summer of 1994 and i was 11 and in Miami visiting my father and my younger brothers. i was babysitting that afternoon and was watchin' Rap City as usual when all of sudden i heard this song and i was glued to the tv. i was like "WOOOOOOOW, this beat is TIGHT!" and then i saw the drawings. now, i was no stranger to graffiti because when i was younger, my great grand parents had an attic that they used to let all the kids tag on and there were tags from as far back as the 70's on those walls. but this joint rekindled that shit in me and i remember after the video was over, i ran and grabbed my sketch pad and started drawing like Isaac on "Heroes", i just zoned the fuck out and was creatin just insane shit. and for those that don't realize, this was the SAME summer that Outkast, Bone Thugs and Biggie ALL came out so that whole summer changed my life. add to the fact that my father was STILL blastin the hell outta Doggystyle, which my mom was NOT EVEN lettin me listen to.

Man, the O'Jays aint never lied about that shit. dudes AND females will smile all up in your face with the quickness but will shank the shit outta you the minute you turn your back and it makes you assess your situation alot closely. But in life, you gotta make mistakes and learn from them. Like the old saying goes "Everybody has a plan until they get hit". well, The Scholar got "sniped". i got into an argument with another person recently and come to find out the person who i THOUGHT i was cool with was sayin alot of bogus shit behind my back, all the while, smiling in a niggaz face. and it was fucked up because the whole time i thought i had this persons card pulled and they thought the same about me when the person controlling the entire deck was the person we BOTH were "cool" with. and this is the same person i tried to look out for and help out the best i could with shit. and its fucked up because i kinda saw it inside this individual, but at the same time i couldn't see it. and so now, this is forcing me to look at people like this person in an even worse way and i hate having to "punish" others for shit that other people do, but i gotta look out for "Numero Uno" at the same time. so to the person i got crunk with, i know you read my blog from time to time and i apologize kinfolk because had your homeboy not filled me in to WHO it was, it would have gotten ALOT worse on both ends. here i am laughin at Lisa Raye ass and from the looks of it, I ended up gettin played for a sucka. damn......thats life, tho.
My boy Myan put me on to this album and this joint is crack. of course, its all in portugese, but music is the universal language and i can "feel" this shit...plus i speak a lil portugese anyway. but seriously, this album is crack. and alot of samples from your favorite groups came from this album. here are some tracks from it that may seem familiar to you or may not...
the latest addition to my collection since SOMEBODY (you know who the fuck you are) sold my Kaws disseceted companion. i know what some people are thinkin "why would you pay $300 for plastic shit on a stick?". If you have to ask that question, then you don't need to know...just go back and pay attention to the "Guns and Butter" conversation Ving Rhames had with Tyrese in "Baby Boy"...
Well since some of you may be too lazy....

During my time in VA, i noticed a few things but the one thing that always seems certain is that if the Clipse are coming, so are "niggaz". and when i say "niggaz" i don't mean like black people, i mean "IGNORANT, hood niggaz". and with "niggaz" comes unnecessary bullshit and since there are ALOT of "niggaz" in VA, there is ALOT of unncessary bullshit. here are some examples
DATE: July 4, 2005
LOCATION: The Beach House in VaBeach
EVENT: Cream x Clipse 4th of July Party
IN ATTENDENCE: Clipse, Famlay, Mike Vick, AI, hoochies.......and niggaz
WHAT HAPPENED: Niggaz acted a damn fool, got the joint shut down so that other people couldn't get in and the cops on horses had to come out, therefore fuckin it up for everybody.
DATE: July 4, 2006
LOCATION: Ocean Breeze Water Park in VaBeach
EVENT: Clipse Pool Party
IN ATTENDENCE: Clipse, boppers and the ever present.....niggaz
WHAT HAPPENED: Since most niggaz can't swim and were too busy tryin to be fly, what else is there left to do but start shit? so yeah, niggaz started shit and shit got shut down.....again.
DATE: August of 2006
LOCATION: Premiere in Norfolk
EVENT: In My Mind Album Release Party
IN ATTENDENCE: Pharrell, Clipse, Famlay, DJ No Dout, DJ Joe Stick, DJ Bee, Ab Liva, boppers, hoes, groupies, clones and...you guessed it.....NIGGAZ!!
WHAT HAPPENED: Niggaz blocked the street HOURS before P even showed up, niggaz started fighting BEFORE the party even started, we had to be brought in through the back by the owner, and niggaz started MORE shit when they got inside.
DATE: End of March 2007
LOCATION: Premiere in Norfolk
EVENT: Geezy's Birthday (Clipse Manager)
IN ATTENDENCE: Clipse, 8ball, MJG, Famlay and niggaz to the 12th power
WHAT HAPPENED: A NIGGA GOT SHOT!!!!!
DATE: January 30, 2009
LOCATION: AMF Chesapeak Lanes in Chesapeake, VA
EVENT: Clipse Bowling Party
IN ATTENDENCE: Clipse......and do i even need to say it?
WHAT HAPPENED: According to Micah, shit was cool (like always. there is always an eerie calm before a "Nigga Moment") and then niggaz remembered what they what there for and started fuckin up shit and brawlin.
Now, there are several things i've noticed about these situations.
1) When Commonwealth hosts events by themselves, shit NEVER goes down because there are enough "others" to off set "niggaz".
2) There are always females in the equation but "niggaz" will rather run up on each other than on some female booty.
3) Usually after the "Nigga Moment" has transpired, the venue is usually shut down or at least shut down as far as "no niggaz allowed". Niggaz are worse than hurricanes.
4) Niggaz comin to a party are like those creatures in "I Am Legend". you WANT to help them, but they just want to fuck shit up. why? nobody knows but it usually always ends in destruction.
And now there is another party about to go down pretty soon. Please, niggaz if you are reading this (which i doubt because "niggaz" don't read)...PLEASE don't fuck this up....
Is it safe to say that its down right SAD when you're suprised when shit DOESN'T go down after parties?......
so i'm here at work on nostalgia mode n shit and i was like "damn, i wonder if they got that Hammer in the mix joint on youtube" and they did so i'm watchin the video and then i start payin attention and i'm like "is this nigga dissin Slick Rick on this joint?". with lines like "did I hear you say king? or call yourself a ruler?/sit down cuz the Hammers gonna school ya" and "a RULER is a stick i use to measure" and "you aint it, you aint dope/if you are a Ruler than the Hammer is a Pope" and shit like that. i'm like "DAMN! Stanley is REALLY goin hard at Rickey D right now and i don't think people were pickin that up". he sent ALOT of shots at Rick in this track. seriously, this nigga went IN on Rick durin this. WHY HAS NOBODY ELSE ADDRESSED THIS?! were yall too caught up in the pants and flashy moves to miss it? i know i was.

Taken from Blackplanet
As it turns out, Michael Misick was playing his wife Lisa Raye. In her court testimony Lisa says she was lead to believe her husband was worth $180 million, while he says he told her he was only worth $8 million. Lisa also testified that Michael let her think he’d bought her a jet, when in reality it was a lease. She also thought Michael bought her a Rolls Royce Phantom, he even went so far as to present it to her in front of her cast mates on the set of ‘All of Us’ with a big red bow on it. Turns out it was also leased, and in her name no less.
Now Lisa’s stuck with a $6,500.00 car note. It was also revealed that Lisa’s name is on a $7 million dollar loan, that she claims to have no knowledge of.
HAHAHAHAHAHA........dummy. she thought she was on the come up and got OWNED!!! i just love when shit like that happens. she tried to "gold dig" and she came up with just rocks. her next man better be an RN......Regular Nigga. WONK WOOOOOOOOOOOOONK!!!!....
This song is dedicated to you Ms. "Queen of Blackbuster Films"...
yeah......yo ass got played alright...

so i'm sittin here at work and i have The Devils Rejects on and i'm about to turn it off and the credits start and i hear this song and i'm like "DAMN! this song goes hard as hell!!", especially in the beginning and how the joint just starts off with the guitar and that flute joint. people who know me know that i listen to EVERYTHING, yes even country if its jammin, and i had to immediately find this on youtube. and i've noticed lately that i've been liking alot of this California country/rock shit like this that they had back in the day, too. if i were a producer, i'd OBLITERATE this sample. also, the movie was actually GOOD movie. i saw House of 1000 Corpses and i was like "DAMN that movie fuckin SUCKED DONKEY DICK!!" so i wasn't really in a rush to see this joint, but we were "Pennying Out" movies at Gamestop (literally selling movies for a penny, to staff only) and i was like "what the hell" and copped it and this movie suprised the heck out of me. if you have time and like scary movies/thrillers, check this joint out. my favorite line out of that entire movie was: "Boy, the next word that comes out of your mouth better be some brilliant fuckin' Mark Twain shit, 'cause it's definitely gettin' chiseled on your tombstone."
this was some deep shit that needed to be said. alot of people are real stuck on this Barack thing but alot of it is what KRS-1 said is "Mindless Loyalty". its cool that B-Rock is President, but we also need to not let that be used as a distraction and we need to be just as critical of him as we were with Bush. We need to pay attention people. watch this whole thing and listen. it woke me up like a muthafucka.

this shit LITERALLY almost killed me last night. i was eating a slice of pizza when this part of the commercial came on and i started laughin HARD as hell and then the pizza got lodged in my throat and it was almost a wrap, luckily i made it to the bathroom and was able to throw up, but ya boy almost DID die laughin last night. and the bad thing is.....i was still laughin after the fact like i didn't learn my lesson the first damn time.
For those who were skeptical of the low cut Kobe's, here is a review from Nicekicks.com which was done by people who work in the shoe industry and basketball industry. Not bad, if i still played ball, i'd cop 'em (like that has stopped me from coppin basketball shoes in the past....).
