Lil Wayne, TI, Jay-Z, Eminem, 2Pac

Aight now that i ensured that I will get a lot of hits with the title (lol), lets start the show.

Its coming close to the end of the year, a year where a lot of things happened not only to me personally but to the world as a whole. I mean, the WNBA isnt the only gay sports league.

George Mitchell pretty much ruined baseball.....not as bad as cycling is though....but who watches guys riding around in tight suits. Nope.

While we patienly wait for ANY Dipset member to be tight (and im not talking about Jim Jones' jeans). Some of the Harlem group's songs showed up on a Disney cd aptly titled "Disney Channel Hits"! WOW, way to go Dipset! Now every little kid will be able to relax to the tunes of Freaky Zeeky, Hell Rell, J.R. Writer , and the man himself, Cam.

Obviously someone at Disney thought it would be funny, to replace some Hanna Montana with that Juelz Santana, lol.

anyways...enough of that group thats "Fallin". oh gett it....Jay-Z's song Fallin, Dipset vs. Jayz, Dips really falling off............aight whatever, shut up.

I've now heard the new Lupe CD called The Cool (as if yall didnt know), and I swear I understanding something new every time I listen to it. SWEEEEETTTTT. What a way to end the year.

And Nas's upcoming album I cant wait for. Namely cus of its tentative name, which is "Nigger" (this should be interesting, hopefully he speaks on things that need to be talked about), but also cus of his last couple albums have been kinda wack. Don't get me wrong, some of the cuts on the past albums have been dope but

And on the non-music tip. I dont know about anybody else but I am SOOOOO excited about this upcoming election. Probably cus its my first time voting but the top 2 candidates in the Democratic party are a Black man and a Women. Crazy! Now just to wait for Nov, 2008.

As for this president, the "war on terror" has now taken 85295 steps backwards, starting from President Musharraf's Military/Civilian Power debacle and now with the People's Hero Bhutto being assassinated, the presidential election postponing in Lebanon, Turkey smashing on the Kurds in Iraq................ and on and on....If y'all thought it was hard in the past, Its gonna be mad crazy over there now.

Aight back to music now.....Ant+Atmosphere*Brother Ali=Dope ass music. Grassroots in a way.


Oh yea, watch this....

And this is ALMOST as dumb as Cam'ron's stint on 60 Minutes. It's not the whole video get the point.

HAHA, how the hell are you gonna try and tell people its real. STUPID PEOPLE!

Tip-off Time BABY!!

The Vipers of the Division 1 third and fourth grade Jr. Suns League and now a whopping 0-2. Sad I know....but watching them is hilarious.


They will end up winning some games. There's this one white kid....could be like dirk, if he just set himself for each shot, a small black kid kinda like the Iverson, another black kid....kinda like a Earl Boykins (yea that small haha) and this other white kid whos basically the lebron james of the team and last but not least, my sister the Elton Brand/Ben Wallace of the team.

They got a beast line up, but the bench is Terrible with a capital TERRIBLE.

Hopefully they can turn things around. They won today but it was only a scrimmage against a D3 team.............yea, ok, whatever, its still a win. A good start in the right direction..........Hopefully, haha.

and again....GO VIPERS

Who are gonna die with me?

why is it that celebrities always die in Trios? Honestly, if you look back in the past month....Evil Knievel (dare devil, duh), Sean Taylor (safety for the Washington Redskins) and Pimp C (from UGK fame) have all died in the past month.

And if you look back at past years you see:

Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janice Joplin

Princess Diana, Mother Theresa, Gianni Versace

and the weirdest combo.........

Sadam Hussien, Gerald Ford, and James Brown.

I know there are a whole lot more but i don't feel like thinking of/researching them. Feel free to drop a post with other ones though.

And is it me or did Pimp C remind you of a southern Flava Flav.......right??, just not as stupid looking. nor as dark. Anyways, its sad to see another person fall to drugs. Im only saying that because cocaine was probably what killed him, since reports say that nothing pointed to foul play. ahhhhh, when will we learn.

Damn you Reagan for putting allowing crack in the ghettos.

R.I.P to all of these people.

So Cool.

To start off......I would like to say the an album entitled "The Cool" by a hip hopper by the name of Lupe Fiasco is now only 1 month and 3 days away. PRAISE GOD!!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Im seriously excited. Here's a song with video. His latest single called "Superstar" featuring Matthew Santos. Its been out for a minute now but just WATCH! AHHH!

Some say "its just a cd."

and I say "Shut up, your just a cd. The Cool is a CLASSIC waiting to come out, waiting to blam through your airwaves. The ridiculous flow caressing your eardrums, enough lyrical content to teach a university class. Its the COOL!!"

Thats what I would say, Real Talk(shout outs to R.Kelly) no exaggeration.

AND.....On to the show.

I watched this movie the other day. It was assigned to me in my sociology class for some extra credit (come to find out its for 2%, nice!). But I go and find out that the movie is in German........and I would have to read subtitles........thats seriously as lame as.....ha, idk, that just sucks.

anyway, on the eve of the due day I sit back and start the movie at 10pm MY time and watch this thing. 2 hours later, I wished it could have kept going! haha, it was such a good movie, I was actually glad I had to watch it.

After a while you get used to the fact that your reading and aren't as annoyed as you were at the beginning.

Anyways if yall get a change to watch the movie......its called "The Lives Of Others"

And if you got any sense of what is going on in this country in terms of the gov and how its operating. You'll see some correlations, its kinda weird son.

I'm not gonna tell you about it because it will defeat the purpose of you watchin it.....seriously....

Watch it.

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Ive Been thinking....

Sooooo....Ever since I went and saw the movie American Gangster, I've started to calling everybody i see. "My Man", I don't know why I cant stop, it's like an addiction now. And the fact that I'm trying to go see the movie again.......probbbbbbbably wont help that addiction.


Here's a couple things ive been meaning to write about.

There have been some crazy things going on in the world. Like the Pakistani President declaring the constitution moot and taking control of his country and pretty much acting as a dictator by imprisoning his political foes. Ummmm, WOW!

I don't know how much anyone cares but, as part of this country's government's "War on Terror" (since 2001), President Bush has given, over 10 billion dollars in aid to the Pakistani's. TEN. BILLION. DOLLARS. Mostly to their military so they can catch the ever elusive Osama Bin Laden. Well, we all know how much good that money has done because we have caught his main men and the man himself. Oh my bad, That 10Billion is straight out of your pockets in the way of taxes.

Oh wait, we haven't caught him? 6 years and billions of dollars later.....and we cant find the guy? I mean there aren't that many 6'6" people walking around over there in Afghanistan/Pakistan.

But I digress.

The President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, has now given himself emergency powers and the law basically is what ever he says. Basically he is a Dictator now. The legitimacy of his re-election was going through the supreme court and on the eve of it's decision he canceled the supreme court. Haha, what a way to keep yourself in power.

The justification for this suspension of the constitution by Musharraf's people is that the country is in a "shaky security climate".

Ahhhhh, So now the Bush administration says that they are not going to stop funding the General's government even though he is exactly what the American government doesn't like, a Dictator.

Wait, we've been supporting dictators since the Monroe Doctrine to the School of Americas to Iran-Contra and now this??*** Gosh.

So as this plays out we will see if the General really does relinquish his powers as the parliamentary elections. And hey, maybe the recently returned from self exile Benazir Bhutto will come out on top.

***Just Google or Wikipedia those things If you don't know what they are.....


So I was surfing the internet (insert "cow-a-bunga" sound bite) and was journeying through the depths of of one of the best websites ever.....YouTube. Home of every video you ever want to watch. Except the type of videos that require you to make sure your door is locked and no one is watching (aka porno for all of you slow people). But anyways. I was watching a clip of the Lou Dobbs Show and he was talking about how President Gearge Bush, the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper, and the President of Mexico Felipe Calderon are forming a Union with open boarders much like that of Europe.

It was conceived in 2003 with former leaders Vicente Fox and Paul Martin and current President G.W.Bush.


Upon further heavy research.......The Securities and Prosperity Partnership is coming into fruition. So why doesn't anybody know about this? Well, maybe the fact that democracy is thrown out the door when it comes to big business and making profits. I mean honestly, they have held meetings behind closed doors. The Commerce Secretary is giving talks in Mexico but news of this "NEW WORLD ORDER" that Bush Jr. calls it has barely received any light of day here in the states. I wonder why? Here are some clips about the issue.

Um, and money. Welcome to the the land of the AMERO. thats what the currency will be called when all this does happen.

Here is the website for the project have fun with that and Fox news also reported about this too. But they said its not real and its just another conspiracy theory. But......
who can honestly believe what they say is fact. I mean the government even have a website up for the damn thing. I don't think you can just say its a myth......ahhhh Good old Fox News.

Big Ups to the Representatives and Senators who are standing up against this. It's now 2007 and the project is growing very fast. You have to be kidding me.

Wait, Your What?

Why is it that every time I meet someone and something comes up where religion comes into question and i declare I am a Muslim, i get puzzling looks and the statement of "oh i didn't know you were Muslim" or "Oh, your Muslim?" follows suit. After that there is an awkward silence where it seems like the person is tagging me with every stereotype possible for a Muslim. I'm expected to speak for the entire religion when one asks a question about why some people are doing bad things. Its hard enough being expected to speak for the entire black race (race is made up by the way, its not real).

I mean, does me being Muslim change the way you look at me? Recently I heard someone say "oh hes Muslim?"...................and? Does it really matter. I don't know why it does.

It's even more funny (as in ridiculous not comical) when you hear someone assume someone else is of the Islamic faith because of how they look or talk. HA, I really don't know what to say to that, I mean sure many Muslims are Arabs, but that doesn't equate to Every Arab being Muslim. It's like saying assuming every Catholic Priest is a molester because of some cases of that going on......Just don't judge....If anything, take that away.

And the previous statements don't just go for Muslims like myself, but for when anybody gives the little quip of "oh I didn't know you were......." about anybody different then themselves.

And on a WAY more positive note, Check for that Lupe, Wu-Tang, Ghostface, Nas, Scarface, J.Dilla, and DJ Hi-Tek cd's this 4th quarter and possibly the Three 6 Mafia and Beanie Sigel cd's too. I'm hyped SON!

See, ya are what ya are in this world. That's either one of two things: Either you're somebody, or you ain't nobody.

- Frank Lucas, American Gangster


It is now 3:15 am here in AZ, and I just got back from the premier of a movie.

Not like famous people were there or anything but nonetheless. The guy who introduced the movie (Cine Capri baby) said we were the first crowd to see the movie in the entire state of Arizona.......YEA BOYYYY. Even though its not true, I'ma just keep telling myself that we were.

The movie though, was GREAT. Honestly, it was Denzel's best. I think its safe to say that.

The whole time, I never once looked at my phone to see what time it was, NOT ONCE. Eyes glued to the screen at all times. Even where there was no shooting or titties bouncing or cutting of the heroin bricks.......I was paying full attention.

From his quick rise to greatness filling Harlem's needs for that "BLUE MAGIC", to his fall, that movie was greatness.

The cast too was pretty tight. Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Common, T.I. RZA, Cuba Gooding Jr.

Could have found someone WAYYYYYYY better suited for Cuba's part, everytime i see him I think of Snow Dogs, he just dont come of as gangsta anymore, specially after that. The Boyz In The Hood days are no longer brotha. but i digress....

All of D.Wash's family in the movie, the crooked ass cops. Congrats everyone, round of applause.

Ive only clapped at the end of three movies while watching them in theaters. Hotel Rwanda, Borat, and now this.

Now the only thing left is the "oh F him cus he a snitch" mentality. Which the real Frank Lucas, and his enemy Leroy "Nicky" Barnes (Went by Nicky in the movie), did to shorten their jail sentence.

Now all these people these days are all against snitching until it affects them. When the opportunity knocks on their doors. They jump all over that shit. But when its not them or anyone they know......F it, who cares, don't snitch. SHUT UP!!!!

Best believe that if I ever get an opportunity to lower my sentence to turn in other bad people.....DONE. Don't even ask, I'll do it. I'm not trying to go to jail for someone else, or suffer for someone else. I'll bring as many people down as possible. and thats exactly what he did. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

And if you snitch? you die right? haha, you gonna die anyway playa. would you wanna do it behind bars, or in the real world. Your choice.

THE MOVIE WAS DOPE. 9 out of 10 BABY. There's no such thing as a 10. sorry haha.

Presidential Weekend, kind of.

October 19th, 2007 - Barack Obama came through Arizona State University in great fashion. Except for the fact that I stood in the sun for an hour waiting for someone to go up there and address the masses. Finally this lady from a local radio station steps up and introduces the few speakers that were supposed to, in a way, hype up Mr. Obama. The most notable being state representative Ed Albasser. At one point they began to play Kanye West's "Touch the sky" and everyone got excited for Barack to show. But alas we had more waiting to do. After another 30-45 minutes he finally arrived. FINALLY. and the crowd went crazy. Fortunately I was in the front couple rows and got a great view of the stage. There was this Coach guy who obviously was a volunteer starting chants "2,4,6,8, Obama for President" or something like that

B dot O dot (we are cool like that) got up there and spoke, to 6000 people, as if he was talking to just you. It wasn't a speech, but more of a conversation, that was more or less one-sided I guess.

He spoke on issues such as "closing the achievement gap" by recruiting a "whole army of teachers", securing the boarder yet providing a way for people already here to gain citizenship. He stated that being a country of laws and being a country of citizens was not contradictory. Health care and fuel efficiency were also topics of discussion.

Overall it was an experience and has pushed me more in the direction of supporting the senator from Illinois.

Team AfroBallers attended a 3-3 basketball Tourney on Saturday. Balled from 10-6. were stomping on people, favored to go to the finals. and then it went all down hill. Our Quarterfinal opponent forfeited and so we sat and rested for another 40 minuets or so. where we all lost our edge and tightened up. Also, watching the team we were gonna play, we got WAY overconfident. And Lost.......relegated to the lowly Third Place. WOW

Sunday - Team DO WORK got Mercy Ruled in our softball game. finishing the season 1-6. And yet we can still go to the playoffs. NICE, ITS A NEW DAY....or maybe a NEW SEASON. WE GOT IT.

'Till Next Time

Eid is finally here....Thank God.

Well, when the month of Ramadan first started, it seemed like it would be a long ways away till the end. But the yearly journey has finished fast(or at least it seems like it was fast now that I'm done) and I feel like the self-examination I did has made me a better person overall.

The month is about sacrifice, spirituality, and most importantly to teach us to, basically, not take you life for granted. And that is exactly what happened. Sacrifice was a big one for me. Going to the mosque on an everyday basis was something that I am happy I did. It seemed like I secluded myself from the friends but at the end of the day, I do not regret my decision.

Religion is important in my life and I hadn't really noticed it before now. Most of my decisions are based on my religious beliefs (and also my Eritrean upbringing, which sometimes I dislike). Not going out that much and being closer to the Fam was a decision I made this month. It felt good to be honest with you, you don't notice how much you aren't home, until you stop going out. If it wasn't for the understanding nature of my friends, I don't know how this month could have gone. And for that I am thankful.

Tomorrow, the 13th of Oct. is the day of Eid, and its gonna be a good day. People of many different nationalities, tongues, and socio-economic backgrounds coming together to pray. Seeing all of your "brothers" and "sisters" at one place for a common belief is a beautiful sight.

With my softball game on Sunday (hopefully we finally win), Muslim Student Association sponsored Basketball Tournament next Saturday, and finally being able to hang out and eat during the day...... this year should be good.

HAPPY EID and hopefully it is as good as mine will be. SALAM!

ahh the power of the box with colors.


A couple months ago I had been introduced to a show called the office. Aight maybe not introduced, maybe it was just mentioned to me but still, you get the point....i hope

Anywhoooo. Those months passed by and I paid no attention to the show, not even bothering to look into it, which for me is kinda odd cus I usually do when put onto something that is supposedly hilarious.

I stumbles upon a "top 10 'thats what she said' moments" video. I clicked it and i became instantly attached to this show. to the point where I somehow got hold of season 3 and currently trying to get hold of the previous 2.

Steve Carell is the master of dry humor. Check that. That whole show is genius. Dry humor is incredibly funny to me. I mean, that awkward silence type of humor. CLASSIC. The guy from the movie Superbad....Evan? yea, Michael another weird ass person who always left me crackin up when Arrested Development was still on.

The Office though has everything, from romance, drama, and documentary-esque interviews.....but that's not as important as Dwight being pranked continuously by Pam and Jim......AHHHHHHHH, excuse me, i need my fix again...........................................................................................................................................................................................................
alright, Im back. so anyways, go watch the show, its good, who am i kidding its great. I only hope to work in an office like that. haha now that would be dope.

in other news, the VH1 Hip Hop Honors are airing tomorrow. FINALLY. Its funny how VH1 is slowly overtaking BET as the place to be for hip hop. I mean, where else could you go from Uncut music videos to a Gospel Show......Give Davey D his own show or something. do something productive BET, the channel is just one "hot ghetto mess" haha, get it, like the show they air..............ha..............ha..........shut up.

and also, Ramadan is almost over. went by kinda fast though.

Do work is now 0-5, its just those real bad beginnings.....get past that first inning and we will be aight. but that first inning is always gonna be there. we are almost there.

until next time, [insert enlightening quote of choice], excuse the grammar at some points......i frankly dont care.

Were Just Ordinary People

"In the adversity of our best friends we always find something which is not wholly displeasing to us."

--Duc de La Rochefoucauld, 1600's

I found this quote the other day while browsing some of my colleague's (just some random person) blogs here on the world wide web, and couldnt help to think to myself "And thats the way it should be."

I mean, think about all the times one little thing during, say, a Madden Match-up, a game of basketball, or even being on the same sports team. In all these situations one could become somewhat angry at another. Yet at the end of the day or when everything is over and done with, everyone is still friends. No hard feelings.

Its the times when people tend to disregard the past and focus on the present situation without thinking about the future repercussions, these are the times when friendships crumble, no matter how long lasting they may have been. Do to one parties or both are reluctant to come together and resolve......thus leading to hate.....opening the door to other feelings/issues occurring.

one things for sure. one goes through life making/losing many friends. through that journey though, you begin to realize who your real friends are. who is really like you, who really accepts you, who really will stand up for you. And these people are the ones who this quote refers to. A conflict between a friend is like breaking your finger. You can still function through the day with no problem, but occasionally that pain flares up and you feel it. It heals fairly quickly and doesn't come with after effects. A conflict with a good friend though is like breaking a leg. It takes a very lengthy amount of time to mend. Constantly in pain, prevents you from doing normal chores or makes them very difficult. And because nobody has the time to wait it out, It never heals right and you are left with a constant reminder of it through out your life. Those who resolve those conflicts with close friends (mend their leg correctly and quickly) will come out of the situation stronger then ever. And THAT my friends is whats really good.

But.......IDK, im just a young kid rambling about what little I say i know about life. what do I really know right?

Friday, September 28, 2007


when Lupe Said "Dumb It Down" in his latest song..........

He really didnt mean it. Honestly. He didnt.

I really dont get it. If I could I would send a pre-recorded donald trump "your fired" to every one of the stupid music makers courtesy of Big Eazy. I cant wait for "The Cool" to come out. Please god, let it come out on time. One

Whats Good HOMIE!!

I haven't hit yall up with anything in a while.

Call me Stephen A. Smith cus quite frankly (haha, ive always wanted to say that) I didn't think any thing was worth enough to write about.

But, NONETHELESS, I do have some little thoughts that, i guess, I can put together to, i guess, make a new post.

Aight children.....Here we goooo

  • Britney Spears..... as you read that, I will bet that your interest jumped 10 fold. But sorry folks, just wanted to say WHO CARES. That shit shouldn't be news. come on now.

I will admit thought that type of colossal drop from pop princess to bald man was pretty funny.

  • Did Amy Winehouse used to be a know, before she went back to black....They tried to make you go to rehab......AND YO ASS SHOULD HAVE GONE, GONE GONE!
  • OJ Simpson.....congratulations. That's all I can say.
I even have the video of the robbery RIGHT HERE. WATCH IT!

wow. I cant believe they thought they could just steal his shit like that. ha, craziness all around.

  • peep game, did you know that Juice's (O.J.) girl cheated on him with some guy. OJ then went up to the guy and threatened to kill him.....ahhh feels like 1994 all over again.
  • 2 words............Hayden Panettiere
  • 2 more words.............Kim Kardashian
  • Ha, while we are on the subject. Vanessa Hudgens. yea the Disney girl. yea the one from that High School Musical. Ok Ok YES, the fine one. Decided to send someone some pics of herself. Naked ones I might add.
Now if you are a famous person. And shes pretty famous now cus of that movie. Wouldn't you think that something like this would happen. And if you don't know whats going on, her picture is all over the Internet now. Yes the nude one.

I have a feeling that half of my readers, (I'm assuming that there are more than one) just tried to search for that picture.

The funny thing is, if you have that picture, and you live in AZ, you can get 10 years in prison if someone snitches on you. HA, jokes on you cus, well, shes underage yall.

Those same people from above just tried to clean up their computers, haha.

  • Wu-Tang is coming back.
  • My softball team is 0-3.......

we are making a comeback though. WE GONE WIN IT ALL YO!.....I hope :/

  • Why don't Rage Against the Machine have a Myspace? I searched for them the other day and couldnt find them. WHAT A SHAME! Tons of other broken up groups have one, why not RATM?

Until Next time, May the force be with you, don't go into a seizure playing HALO 3 all night, or for those that don't have it yet, in 2 hours and 20 mins.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007


Now here's a video of a student at the University of Florida. He is at a microphone asking 2004 democratic presidential candidate John Kerry a question. He is up there for a little bit of time because he is prefacing his question to give the other members of the audience info about what he is about to ask.

Subsequently his mic is turned off and 2 "bad ass" cops arrive next to him to escort him out. Now if I were in this guys shoes, I would have done the same thing. Having done nothing wrong, seeing 2 cops at my side, I would be quite perturbed at how the situation got so hostile. SERIOUSLY....JUST FOR SOME QUESTIONS....apparently the wrong questions.

Ill let you watch the video to see what happens next......if you are a normal human being......and your name isn't Ann Coulter or Bill O' will find this to be quite saddening but not surprising none the less.

In the words of Peter Griffin...........THIS REALLY GRINDS MY GEARS

Theres a reason why the phrase "fuck the police" exists.

There's a reason why the many groups/artists have made songs about cops, and not ones of praise either.

There have been many incidents in this country's quite recent history where the police have taken advantage of their "protector of the people" power for something other than good.

Aight, to put it bluntly, police think they are the shit, and they can do anything they want.

Sometimes, police are forced to take actions in their duty of "protectors" but sometimes these actions are extremely over the top just for the reason of "we can". And thats what needs to stop.

Just because you could shoot someone doesn't mean that it has to be done. Excessive force is not always the answer.

Keep in mind, there are good cops out there but their fellow co-workers have given the whole force a bad rap that you cant help but hate all of them.

I've only met one good one in my

In the words of NWA, Dead Prez, J. Dilla, Bone Thugz and Harmony, Kanye West.....and many others....FFFFFFuckthepolice

Travis Barker......Rockstar Mentality

Cruising on the internet on my computer.....watching the videos, singing the songs.......

That was my rendition of Eazy-E's "Boyz In Da Hood"........its a good start dont you think, haha.

ANYWAY........Soulja Boy's song "Crank Dat" is getting mad play by all the lil teen agers and suburban kids all across the nation. Dances are cropping up, and many of them have some little twist on them to keep them original, so to speak.

Now everybody's favorite drummer Travis Barker (of Blink-182 fame) put his own twist on the song too. And no it wasnt a dance, which would have been pretty funny to watch.......hahaha....laughing just thinking about that. But here you watch it and tell me what you think. In my opinion, this video is pretty nice, might even push me to listen to more of his stuff.....might.....

Crying is good for you......right?

So.....In more entertaining news.........

Our Beloved President, George W. Bush, conducted several interviews with journalist Robert Draper in late 2006 and early 2007. He also was allowed to unlimited access to White House aides, for the book "Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush," which went on sale Tuesday.

Well, I don't really know where the "Dead Certain" part came from...because we all know how right the Bush Administration has been.....

Anyways I was reading an article that had some excerpts from the book and I thought you all might enjoy them:

"I fully understand that the enemy watches me, the Iraqis are watching me, the troops watch me, and the people watch me...I do tears."

Good old G.W. Bush. You can always count on him for that little one liners. At the bottom of the article, the author states that Bush
said he ate chocolate in the evenings after he swore off booze, because his body missed the sugar......


ahhhh that was much needed after that last post. ahhhhhh

No...Really....."I am NOT gay"

Next time you go to a bathroom in at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, make sure you are not sitting in the stall adjoining the one occupied by a Mr. Larry Craig. Back in June of this year the (Rep.) Senator from Idaho was caught red handed by a undercover police officer trying to engage in what is categorized as "lewd conduct."

A recording of the conversation between Sen. Craig and the officer once they reached the Airport Police Station can be found here. (click on Audio: Sen. Craig's Arrest). During the recording, the officer repeatedly tells the Senator to stop lying and that he is disappointed that Mr. Craig is acting in such a manner.

Now before I continue, I would like to bring to your attention that on multiple occasions, (ie 1982, and Dec. 2006) Sen. Craig was accused of being homosexual but adamantly denied any of that.

Now back to the story. Sen. Craig plead guilty on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct and has pretty much been abandoned by the Republican Party and is said to be officially stepping down by September 30 of this year.

Now after this story broke, 3 MEN came out and accused the Senator being involved in some sort of sexual conduct with them. These accusations ranged from cruising** to the other end of the spectrum in oral

Here is a link to a confession of the man who said that he and the Senator from Idaho. The voice is disguised for privacy.

Now in a press conference held on the 28th of August Sen. Craig had this to say:

I am not gay. I never have been gay.... In June, I overreacted and made a poor decision. I chose to plead guilty to a lesser charge in hopes of making it go away.... Please let me apologize to my family, friends and staff and fellow Idahoans for the cloud placed over Idaho. I did nothing wrong at the Minneapolis airport. I did nothing wrong, and I regret the decision to plead guilty and the sadness that decision has brought on my wife, on my family, friends, staff and fellow Idahoans.

So, he said he was guilty thinking it wasn't going to get any bigger of a situation than it was. He was hoping to make "it go away." With the support of his friends in the Republican Party gone, Senator Larry Craig is spiraling downward in his own whirlpool of a disaster.

Or is it one.

I don't know what happened in that Minnesota bathroom, but Craig sounded quite nervous.

Quite nervous.

^oh and on a side note the Senator is very well known for his Anti-Gay voting in the Senate. I should have said that earlier but forgot for some reason.

Now with "Pottygate" (what CNN dubbed the story, staying in tune with any other government scandal) ruining his career, the accusations all came out. The one with the robot voice you already heard sounded VERY suspect..........and greatly disgusting IMO. The guy basically said "oh it looked like him, and I'm kinda interested in politics, that means I know everybody"....RIGHT

The other accusation was from a Frat boy from University of Idaho when Craig was the President of the house.........40 years ago........I still don't understand why anyone would wait that long. Unless they liked doing it back then and are just trying to get famous now OR their life was threatened. Yea, I would think the former.

The third guy accused the Senator of cruising** him in a store in Idaho.........come on now.

No way am I defending this guy......I am just saying how the whole thing is kinda weird. A anti-gay Senator accused of being involved activities. He should never have been in that situation to begin with. You are a public official for god's sake......

Anyway, it was brought to my attention that his privacy was invaded..........and to that I said, excuse my language, BULLSHIT!!!!

First of all, he is an elected official so that automatically places him under public scrutiny since we elected him.....which also allows us to kick him out as well, right? RIGHT.

Quite RIGHT!

Second of all, was it entrapment on the officer's part? Maybe....I wasn't there. By the sound of that tape at the station though it sure sounds like this is a common enough occurrence in that bathroom. So that cop was looking for that to happen. Soooo......the fact that it happened to be him was it coincidence? I have no idea.

Anyway, thats all I have to say. Soon to be former (R) Idaho Senator Larry Craig is forever gonna go down as the guy who wanted to have sex with another male in a restroom in a Minnesota Airport.....Congrats.

Welcome to America.

In Hip Hop I Trust

So over the last month, I have purchased 4 albums. Some of you out there are probably thinking I'm just wasting my money. Some of you out there think that my buying the CD's is the way to go. Whatever you think....I bought them. And you know what? They were seriously worth the money. The ones I bought were:

  • Common's Finding Forever
  • Talib Kweli's Eardrum
  • Aesop Rock's None Shall Pass
  • MF Doom's MM Food

The Common CD is by far the best one IMHO. When he put out
Be, I thought that he really out did himself on it as far as content and production. Let me be honest with you guys/gals (if there really is anyone reading these), Finding Forever is WAY better. This album is listenable from top to bottom and all the way through.

The first song is an intro, which is basically an instrumental building up. Just like the Intro on
Be, it is worth the listen but you can definitely skip it (I know I said you wont need the next button but its just an instrumental.....if you enjoy real music you will like it. If you are a n00b - well then you are a n00b) and go straight to the second song. All but 4 of the tracks are produced by his Chi-Town counterpart Mr. Kanye West. Even a beat by the late J.Dilla (aka Jay Dee) is present on the song featuring D'Angelo called So Far to Go

From songs about real life ideals to romantic common-esque songs to the ones of brute lyricism. Common's Finding Forever delivers and efficiently as well seeing that the album is only 12 songs long (which is a norm now for him). The guest spots on the album are very polished as well, the best one being the appearance of British singer Lily Allen on Driving me Wild. With the use of female artists from across the pond suddenly being the cool thing to do (i.e. Amy Winehouse and Natasha Bedingfield.......aight maybe not so much but still), Miss Allen's feature was on point. Kanye himself shows up on the Chicago Anthem Southside. I don't know if Kanye is saving all of his lyrics for his album but his appearance was actually NICE....when compared to most of his guest work as of late. As you go on, The Game is another gem on the CD only to be later upstaged by's a little snippet from it.

"He on the ground he could feel God touching him
He heard the sound of his moms sayin trustin him
At heaven's gate, saying please Lord let me in
Or send me back to tell my people to be better

D-D-D-D-DOPE......if I were to rate the CD from 1-10....It would be a nine and only because it is such a short length. ONLY THAT.

Go Cop it please.....seriously best 12-13 bucks you've probably spent in a while. You really don't need that extra World of Warcraft character.....enlighten yourself and listen to this album!

Some dreams get lost never to be found again" - Misunderstood

till next time...I promise the Talib review is coming....promise

Jena's Six

As I was wandering through the hallways of the Internet, I came upon a story that I couldn't believe was taking place in today's society. It takes place in a small Louisiana town by the name of Jena.
(After a lil help from wikipedia, I found out that there are roughly 3000-4000 people residing there.)

Anyways, In this city there's a high school; Jena High School, home of the Giants. One day a young man (who's black) asked permission of an administrator if he could sit in the shade of a tree, usually reserved for white students only.

whoa! are you kidding me, reserved for whites only! It's sad to see that some places in this supposed progressive country are still in that backward state of mind that this country was originally founded on. now back to the story....

The next day, there were three nooses waiting on that tree. Now if this isn't enough, the three white students who did this were recommended for expulsion by the principal but the decision was overruled by the School Board and were only given I.S.S. (In School Suspension). The Superintendent was quoted as saying that "Adolescents play pranks. I don't think it was a threat to anybody"................rightttttttt

now keep in mind that the town of Jena is 85% white.

Some of the football players (African American students)decided to take a stand against the decision and staged a silent protest under the big tree. The school called the local authorities and even the District After quite a while the DA lifted up his pen and is quoted as having said "with one stroke of my pen, I can make your life disappear."

I don't even know what to say to that. Even though it isn't known as to whom it was directed, that's still a very profound statement.....

Throughout the fall semester (football season as well) fights continued to break out between blacks and whites but nobody wanted to do anything to hurt the team, who was having a great season until that point.

After the season though....on November 30th, 2006 to be specific, a fire was started inside the school completely leaving it ravaged. The culprit was not found and the school had to be rebuilt.

The school being burnt down was just the start of many other events between black and white students that would eventually escalate. On December 4, 2006, a group of 6 black students jumped a white student, Justin Barker, after he bragged about how another black student was beaten up earlier that week. Barker was sent to the hospital with a concussion and a swollen eye, and the 6 students were all arrested.

The 6 students were all charged with aggravated assault, but which was later upped to attempted second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder by the DA......which would have put them in prison for up to 100 years. On top of that their bond was set between $70,000 and $138,000.

That's ridiculous if you ask me. I'm not mad about the fact that the black students getting in trouble, which they should have since it was a school fight. The fact that is irritating to me is the charges put upon them.

Conspiracy to murder? Attempted Second-Degree Murder? On top of that, nothing AT ALL happened to any white student that was involved in any other fights, one of which involved a sawed off shotgun being pulled out. You have got to be KIDDING ME!

Now some of the kids were not able to make bond and have remained in prison for the months since. The first of the Jena six's trials recently began and to many people's surprise his sentence was reduced to one of battery instead of murder, which could be punishable to up to 22 years in prison. The court appointed lawyer didn't call a single witness to the stand and the all white jury scheduled for the trial will only make matters worse. His sentencing will be held on the 20th of September.

Many organizations are trying to help these kids and their community and trying to spread the word about this horrible situation.

I cant help but laugh at the way things were handled by the leaders of the community. This country still needs to grow up.

Like the late Martin Luther King said, "Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"

Do your part....Help these victims of prejudice.

Wrong Ball.....So Legal.....Right?

SOOO there was this game where one of the teams did this trick worked, but for some reason people say its not legal. I for one think its completely legal and will do till otherwise proven too.

Its such a sick play to be called illegal too....cracks me up every time I see it.

Youth Football League

Heres one from about the same time period back in 2006...the narrorator says the play is completely legal and we ALL know TV doesnt lie to people. Its just simply always right. I dont know, you tell me.

High School Football Game

Videos courtesy of of the greatest sites on earth, along with,, this one your reading right now, and of course the soon to be operational

Play Ball

So, me and a bunch of my closest friends made this rec. softball team. you know, something just for fun, see how good we can be....

we had been talking about the team and getting everything ready for about 3 months now. Sprinkle in a couple practices with about half the team showing up. Add a couple new faces into the mix.

We schedule a scrimmage with another team (a rival of sorts since part of our team came from that team haha) and the funny thing is that today was the first day that our entire team actually showed up. We were one cohesive unit out on the field and it was sooo funny to watch. The supposed "worst" player on the team hits an inside the park home run.

**Listen to Chris Villa on 101.5 jamz.....honestly the dopest DJ this side of Earth...**

All in all thought it was funny and just makes me wish the season would start sooner. Team DO WORK is in full effect yall.

Speaking of seasons starting, the fantasy football leagues that im in are just waiting for the first week to be over with so that my team name can stand at the top of the board.

In one of my leagues, there has been sooo much shit talking about the randomest things, I honestly visit it every couple of hours just so I don't miss out on any drama...its kinda like watching one of those soap operas. You watch one of them...tell yourself you aren't gonna watch anymore, then come back the next week to see what happened to Jennifer or if Ben really died or not. (those are just made up, but really did Jake marry that one girl?, haha jk).

Alright enough of my rambling, ehh, more like excitement filled narration of a day in the life of me....but my next topic is gonna be a review of the latest CD I just bought. Talib Kweli's Eardrum.

If you got any suggestions.....let me get itttttt. Until next time, Shut up!
