Mr. Carter

I don’t know where I’d place Jay-Z in my pantheon of MCs, but I do know that all these kids tryina tell me that Lil Wayne is the best one doin it now just need to listen to Mr. Carter. There’s no comparison. At all. Hov CRUSHES Weezy. Not to mention that Wayne even admits [...]

Twenty Years Ago

Back then, I swore Tyson was eventually going to be known as the greatest heavyweight champ of all time, going something like 60-0. Little did I know.

Won’t Work This Time

There’s a little uproar in Philly over malt liquor advertisements. But in thinking about it, it has to be the style, because it can’t be the substance. Not with all the malt liquor ads I see when I go up there. So then it’s not that they’re advertising Colt 45, it’s that they’re advertising Colt [...]

In addition to having a successful playoff record and winning the Super Bowl, one of the marks of coaching success in the NFL is having a “coaching tree,” or for a coach to have his assistants hired as head coaches around the League.

Listening to the Disco to Go by The Brides of Funkenstein, on the uncut version, the song starts out with this tremendously interesting horn lick. Totally different from the rest of the song – it almost sounds unrelated to the song, but it’s quite, quite funky. Later, I’m listening to Oops Upside Your Head by [...]
