Arthur Abraham Defies Lord Jamar

June 21, 2008

Fix your broken jaw now it’s time to retire

Fuck Lord Jamar, I ain’t goin out!

Arthur Abraham makes Tiger Woods look like a damn sissy. Golf? What? Golf? Are you serious? Dude got his jaw busted and still fought till the end. Sure, he got a little help from the ref but that is besides the point.  He was spitting blood, swallowing blood, and not giving a fuck. Despite getting his shit busted by Edison Miranda, he was able to get the decision. Will Abraham get his face rearranged again in the rematch?

At the press conference, Abraham stated, ““My eyes say more than his words. I wouldn’t need to say anything. I’m not interested in talking to him or hearing what he has to say.”

Miranda responded in true  trash talk gutter supreme fashion, “Of course he doesn’t have anything to say. I destroyed his mouth….what has surprised me about him is that he is an idiot. Didn’t you see how nervous he was up there? He was talking like a little girl. He knows I destroyed him. His trainers lied to him. His trainers don’t care about him otherwise they wouldn’t have brought him here. I care more about him than his trainers do.”

Destroyed his mouth! That is what I am talking about!

They face off again in the rematch tonight on Showtime. Time 4 Sum Aksion! Someone please tell Miranda to come out to Brand Nubian!


Suckas Need Bodyguards

June 18, 2008

Damn, Raiders’ receiver Javon Walker could have listened to Gang Starr and saved himself a world of trouble. Guru was talking about fake MC’s, Javon! Not multimillionaire receivers who get injured yet still receive deals worth 55 million dollars. Feel feel to drop some of that not-so-hard earned cash on a couple dudes to watch your back. Hell, I thought you woulda stayed the hell away from clubs after your boy got murdered. Guess not.

Javon is pictured above spraying a crowd in Vegas with champagne just so they know for sure that he has millions and is prob a good target for a robbery. Why not just hang a sign on your back? I got mad jewels, mad cash, and will not utilize my ability to run really, really fast when placed in a dangerous situation. Perhaps next time Javon will roll with a posse so he doesn’t get his face turned into hamburger meat.

Money Doesn’t Matter? Tell That To Evander!

June 6, 2008

Floyd retired

“But there comes a time when money doesn’t matter. I just can’t do it anymore. I have found a peace with my decision that I have not felt in a long time.

What? Money doesn’t matter? Part of me believes Floyd, because he just retired when he had a fight around the corner with Oscar De La Hoya that he would have won easily. $20 million dollars for a few knicks and bumps? To quote Clay Davis- “Sheeeeeeeeeeeiittttttttttt!”

I am not mad at all about Mayweather’s decision because it clears the way for Cotto. Mayweather was never going to face Cotto, because he would have been required to face a real challenge. Oscar and another rematch with Hatton aren’t true challenges. They are easy money. I am into rematches, but who wants to see a rerun?

I wouldn’t be shocked if this retirement doesn’t last. When Cotto is getting all the attention, people are questioning Floyd’s decision to duck quality fighters in the welterweight division, the wrestling and endorsement deals dry up because nobody cares about a retired fighter, and 50 Cent is off touring you will see Floyd again.

Thank Goodness For Ashley Dupre

May 27, 2008

Slick Rick ain’t going nowhere. New York Governor David Paterson recently pardoned Rick because he is apparently a wise, wise man.

“Mr. Walters has fully served the sentence imposed upon him for his convictions, had an exemplary disciplinary record while in prison and on parole, and has been living without incident in the community for more than 10 years,” said Paterson.

You’re blind, baby. You’re blind from the facts…not!

Despite the system’s best attempts to kick Rick out of the country and make his life a living hell, they did not come out victorious. All I have to say is thank you Ashley Dupre.

Yes, Ashley Dupre. You know, the prostitute who slept (cuz she got paid) with former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer.

Thanks to Eliot Spitzer love of whores and his inability to keep it on the DL he resigned from office and was replaced as Governor by Paterson. What a beautiful chain of events! Slick Rick had a snowball’s chance in hell of getting a pardon from the closet (not so much anymore) freak Spitzer. Rick might want to get a drop or two from Dupre and Spitzer on his next album. At least give a shout out on the liner notes.

What is truly wonderful about this situation is that a man who is doing positive things in our country is allowed to stay here. He served his time, his life since his incarceration is the definition of rehabilitation and he has not demonstrated that he is a danger to society. Kudos to Paterson for doing the right thing.

Nas Lets Us Know Who Is In Control

May 19, 2008

Nas told that he has changed the name of his album. Yes, the album previously known to white people as “the album with the ummm you know ummmm you know ummm the one Nas wanted to be umm controversial”. There is a reason dude did not respond to NYOIL. I could really care less about the album title changing or the album, for that matter. Title or no title, I don’t think any Premo or PR beats will be on it.

I do find the deletion of the title (not really a change, is it?) as a clear sign that Nas has no spine. How can you say you are an artist and let someone else dictate your intent or your message? You don’t. Unless of course you are someone who is more focused on the dead presidents lining your pockets than your vision. Telling those in power to fuck off should be easier when you have a bit of financial security. This isn’t someone who is worried about getting their foot in the door. This is an MC who created what many consider to be the greatest album of the genre and he’s still taking orders from another man. Ain’t that a damn shame.

“It’s important to me that this album gets to the fans,” Nas told in a statement. “It’s been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. It’s that important. The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the real title of this album is and what to call it.”

Why not just call the album what Nas’ actions are- cowardly.

8 Years In Prison<Crucifixion

May 15, 2008

Poor Remy Ma got sentenced to 8 years a couple days ago. Then she got teary eyed about it. She stated that she was  “surrounded by poverty and drugs and violence and failure.” Cry me a river, yo.  Even if the victim was out for money, the bullet  “pierced Barnes-Joseph’s colon and hit her rectum.” That shit sounds like a fuckin’ Kool Keith rhyme! Shoot bullets at your rectum. Anyone who takes a bullet in the gut which travels to their rectum deserves at least a couple dollars thrown their way.

BTW, did anyone throw the judge a copy of the Shesus Khrist mixtape? Tip for rappers: don’t compare your suffering to Christ’s if you ain’t willing to do a measly 8 years. Man up, yo. If only the judge had seen the mixtape cover: Remy, these 8 years will be a walk in the park compared to a crucifixion.

Remy had earlier told Kay Slay that there was a “”whole conspiracy against rappers right now.” Funny, because I only can think of one rapper who shot their friend and got sentenced to 8 years. Someone should have told Remy about the Prodigy handgun strategy: carry your gun, talk about your gun, but never fire your gun. Saved him 5 years.
