    Cool episode of the frocast. Crazy segment on Steve Harvey telling Snoop Dogg, Bow Wow, and T.I. to respect Donald Trump. SMFH. Valid points were made during that segment. Cool segment on new music from Rick Ross and Drake recently. When did it become cool for a coach to put his dick in a damn hot dog bun? I couldn’t believe that shit when I first heard about it. I can see if it was a student/one players on a basketball/football team, not a coach. Crazy shit. Crazy segments on Sports and TV Talk. Cool segments on Keep It 100 and Winners and Losers of the week. Cool episode. I enjoyed it.

      RTIII is Levar(sp) Ball doing too much constantly talking around/about/for his kids or do you think he’s doing a good job?

      • Jamonte’ Thomas

        I think he’s the voice of what I don’t like about the internet, where you can’t like 2 things at the same time. He can big up his kids without shitting on Steph, LeBron, Jordan, etc. He made me side with Stephen A., which also sucks.

      This song is terrible.

      • B-Easy

        But he IS technically talking about putting money back in the community.

        • saulewright

          Well no black designers were put on and he talked about buying homes for his mom and restaurants for his pockets. All bracketed with a lot of finna. This is like a pep rally song before any action. It’s TIME to do this but he always just copped some Italian shit or some diamonds and shit. But they all FINNA in this song

            Tell em Saule!

          • B-Easy

            On the show, it felt like Ross was painted one way. I think it’s all more nuanced than that. Ross has in fact bought a lot of business in the hood and gave jobs to people from those same hoods.

          • saulewright

            Eh, there’s a lot more inference there than in that song. Like, I spoke to black designers, mentioned Kanye, Enyce, FUBU…I didn’t speak on jobs or buying back the block. I think the closest I got was to saying that Versace and LV don’t invest or show in the hood at all, but they are always being shown in the hood. But black business isn’t elevated BY these rappers. Owning 99 Wingstops in the hood but not INVESTING in the hood doesn’t make that something to be proud of as it pertains to the hood, imo of course. You’re giving people that live in those areas jobs…but I (personally) have never seen a Wingstop in the hood which was always odd to me. But yea, I was talking to elevating other designers and the community in that way…

          • B-Easy

            Yeah, we may be arguing different points.

            Now as for the Black designer stuff? Really? How many Black designer $100+ sneakers you got in the closet?

            MJ = Black

            LeBron = Black

          • B-Easy

            Oh. My bad. Those negros own Nike?

          • King Jerm

            You said designer.

          • B-Easy

            They didn’t design them either.

          • saulewright

            I also don’t have a record deal or gold album…

            but the most expensive shoes in this house were done by a black artist that I paid for. They sit on a shelf under some black art that I paid for by instruments by black artists that made them. I wash my clothes in detergent from a black owned company, my ass by a soap made by a black owned company and cover my back in clothes designed or made completely, by black own companies 90% of the time.

            But I don’t have NEAR the reach of one Ross song. So while I do all that, his covers have italian glasses, shirts, jewelry by some non black people and he’s rapping about non black owned designers and companies…

            so whatchu sayin…

          • King Jerm

            Welp…

          • B-Easy

            Get your hype man ass out of here!!!!

          • King Jerm

            Deflecting. Nice try, but hold that L Saule gave you.

            First off, congrats on washing your clothes with detergent from a Black owned company.

            I guess one of things is when did Ross become the poster child about rapping about Italian glasses, shirts, jewelry by some non-black people? Like I said in the beginning, I think it’s more to him than that. Yes, that’s a part. But most big time rappers not named Cole or Kendrick do that (Although K.Dot does have a deal with Reebok).

          • saulewright

            but bruh… I talked about black designers lol. I didn’t make him a poster child. The question I asked was “What would it look like if RAPPERS rapped about black designers and put them on…” This ain’t a Rick Ross witch hunt. His album came up, we talked about it, I asked about designers….the rest of this stuff……???

    -Yeah, I could see a non-zesty Karamo.
    -The Bow Wow “pimp” shit was lame and over the top, but respecting Trump is some fuckshit.
    -The people that went to speak with Trump are not in any way our chosen representatives.
    -That random shit is why it took me so long to get into niggas from Wu that weren’t Meth.
    -They’ve switched up calling mixtapes “playlists” now.
    -#ATLorgy sounds like a night of bad decisions.
    -I’m traumatized listening to that coach story.
