Jeff:

Thank you for tuning in to another episode of the culture Episode 66 as we continue women's APPRECIATION MONTH here on the culture This is your boy Jeff I'm here with my man and as always was going on son

Anthony:

and is ready to go. I'm ready to go literally and

Jeff:

a lot of stuff going on this week. Its like 40 and a certainly mule. Shout out to our Patreon shout out to our female Patreon is Melissa and Tosh. I want to start off with Kanye if you don't mind. Because right on the head this man is like losing his mind you know, first of all, he's legally changed his name now. So he is no longer Kanye West he is now just yay or is a ye how's it Praise ye? How do you pronounce that as a ye ye

Anthony:

I don't fucking know man is

Jeff:

officially just yay now. And he filed Let me read this shit. He filed paperwork to change his name the rapper born Kanye Omari West finally got what he asked for and will be legally known as a judge Michelle Williams granted the change on Monday in a California courthouse after the rapper filed a petition to change his name in August documents seen by CNN confirm. The musician hinted at the change as far back as 2018 when he released his studio album Yay. And then several months later tweeted, being formerly known as Kanye West IMU. Back in 2019. West suggested he might legally change his name to Christian genius billionaire Kanye West for a little bit. The rapper's name changes with just one of several recent big shifts in his life blah blah blah oh no we might need like a divorce the divorce and you just need a haircut he posed he came I started posting pictures. He went to the blog and I told them I'm like yo fuck my head up just whatever you want.

Anthony:

He just literally told the barber like yo just close your eyes and just I want you to paint me a picture and just don't open them to you're done. You just basically just just went to town with some clippers. And it was

Jeff:

I think it was Chris Brown. Chris Brown tweeted some shit like yo Kanye got the punishment haircut

Anthony:

you got more than punishment haircut these women are here wearing like mask and shit

Jeff:

look like remember when we was little and we would always get like gum on our head and then our parents would just cut it only did that once and I had a whole bald spot for like two weeks I did that should ones I know everybody everybody because a child did some shit like that but that's what he should look like. Like he woke up and he just had my gum on his head and his dad was like I just went Yeah, and just fucked his whole

Anthony:

shit up. I'm honestly sitting here trying to think when's the last time I went to sleep or gum in my mouth?

Jeff:

That has been yeah I mean I haven't done it since I was a kid but I don't know

Anthony:

it's been a while it's been a while because it's been a while it's not some it's not really hard my to do list at all. Yeah,

Jeff:

so anyway, Alex Baldwin, kill somebody trying to film film whatever film he was making right now apparently there's a live round yeah like that's some Bruce Lee and Brenda Lee shit because how they died right?

Anthony:

And I said Brandon Lee done the Bruce Lee the shutter I don't know I can't but

Jeff:

how does that even happen bro How is there a live round in a prop gun when you're filming the movie

Anthony:

lie around and props look pretty similar. I mean it shouldn't have been in there I don't like I don't even know how you test it out

Jeff:

as a set as a setup like so now the person who's responsible for the for the you know for those guns or whatever he's the person has to be investigated now right now like

Anthony:

I mean I mean it's like I forgot what happened. I mean it's an accidental discharge if you want to you can actually you know, charged with manslaughter because he did kill somebody but it was really accidental from what they know right now i don't i don't think Alec Baldwin planet killed somebody. I don't think he's got crazy or anything else like that it just kind of a tragic accident that happens. And then there's still more details that come out. It's kind of super strange like a random person is just shot by a bullet. It's supposed to be fake and it killed one person didn't injure the director to to hit the person and ricocheted off like I don't know this whole thing's a fucking mess.

Jeff:

That she would traumatize me like I would never shoot an action scene or at least a shooting scene again. Like if there's a movie I'm doing and they are required to shoot somebody I'd be like cut man you know Stop man or something. I'm not doing this because you would fuck me up.

Anthony:

I would never want to hold the gun again. Even though I've got a gun sitting right here. I don't want to hold the gun again. Get my bullets and props. I

Jeff:

worry about that shit computers real so probably want to Yeah, we never we've never discussed the the vs battle. Because it happened last week. But it happened like a day after we felt we recorded at Sunday night. Yeah. Mm hmm. KERS versus Big Daddy Kane and this might have been the most entertaining versus at least one of them. You agree? No, it was the most entertaining easily here. They have breakdancers k RS brought breakdancers out one point it just Restylane Yeah. But at what point to turn into a real battle. And that's when I got lost because I lost track at that point. Like at first I had Big Daddy Kane winning the early rounds. I was like yo because you forget as always happens you forget you know some of the songs That's nice. You're like, Oh damn, I forgot that was him. Oh shit, that was him. So he was playing a lot of shit that I remember was him and I'm like, Damn, I had him up in the first and then obviously KERS started cooking And then I lost track once once they just started freestyling and care of us was coming off the top or you know it might have been rammed but it was like an actual freestyle you know he was Madeline he was distant cane. And I was like oh shit the shakeout real now and then I lost stop counting at that point at that point I just you know, I called it a draw. I was like, whatever. I had KERS winning at that point but then I just called it a tie at the end because it was you know, it was both coming back and forth and you forget that big that he can can spit spit he's like my kind of rapper. He's like a rappers rapper like you can really rap they both are Yeah, but I think Yeah, but technically and as far as just lyrically I think Kane is better. prs is just a performer you know i mean he has you know,

Anthony:

oh you guys you like those fast motherfuckers Okay, no, I don't want to be fast but he just wraps wraps you know I'm saying yeah but that's but that's like being dismissive the carrots one they both can that's what it was Oh, so widely respected when it came on. Because I mean, I had care was one winner because I know he had a longer catalogue than candy cane had put the freestyle so I'm like, I don't want to give a point to anybody for that because you're not really doing record you're kind of doing freestyling and you've got to do that just do that from the rip Don't you know, play record freestyle. It's too much going on. Who had a better guest appearance I mean terrorists to pull up my line

Jeff:

Big Daddy came brought out a with a name shot say yes he

Anthony:

did.

Jeff:

He did hugging to space she says she did her shit and he was like that wasn't even expecting to do all that.

Anthony:

Yeah, I think people get fucked up it's like the essence of hip hop and back in that day is that there was no auto tune there was no ghost riders No No shit like that. He could rap but he couldn't rap rap good enough he's on a mic if he wasn't then there's something else in the culture that you probably might be good at and be supportive of and push the culture forward but you had to rap you had to be able to do that and there was only so many people that could really do so that's why I have so many groups cuz like a lot of dudes correct but like I can't do this individually. So I need like me and for the people new kind of roll that way. But like I said, the beauty of the vs itself was the essence of hip hop. The freestyling the B boying the music the crowd like everybody was into it like everybody was on their feet enjoying it Swiss seemed like he was out of his mind Joe was seemed like it was all just like this is what the essence of hip hop is this is what versus is supposed to be like celebrate and coaching you have to pioneers of it that even all these years later through are able to do so. So it should be beautiful.

Jeff:

Yeah, so I don't know the day announced what the next ones are not yet and they had a hard time with that. This was hosted by they have Fat Joe opening it up and I was I was fragile door here. But apparently, you know, he said KERS was like his idol and was the reason that he's rapping and all of this so he wanted to do

Anthony:

it but it's weird being the host he only up there once like it's not really hosted by us announced them and like you're just introducing them and that's it. Yeah,

Jeff:

you know even who was the DJ? Capri Capri, DJ scratch and kicker pre k cup pre even kick a pre kick the freestyle who's our freestyle and let me let me do something real quick and he spit

Anthony:

in Red Alert he ended up coming out with care rest tonight Okay, it was getting the band back together the whole topic of diversity this week his whole Buster thing again. Go just compensation was the compensation

Jeff:

and you leave that gun alone minister was over here cleaner has gone and take it to heart.

Anthony:

Now I'm wondering maybe you're blindfolded like the conversation about buses like who is a worthy because they had the night before to have supercat and some other vegan do that then Buster came up and said she came to find me a worthy opponent and he walked off the stage was ballsy, ballsy. People like putting all these American made Maxim's like who could go against Buffett like it's not many we've had this discussion it would have to be Yeah, that's it cuz i think i do think ti was probably mentioned I think ti is ducking that shit. Do it to talk a real records in the beginning of verses like yo 50 Come on out here yo Buster Come on out here. so on so forth. But then it didn't happen. Nothing occurred, nothing appeared right. So the only reason I miss you makes the most sense is hits quality music length. The only person that could probably maximum chant maximum energy wise no one can. That's why people are probably much like afraid to go into ring with him. But it's definitely like her long historian. No career, her time with Timberland, all the hits, she's written all the ones she's performed. So she's the only one I could probably go in there and give that matchup the 20 that it deserves. There there are other people but they're never going to do verse like put on with it like Jay Z but Jesus never done the verses. You have to kind of let that dream go unless you just throw a super bag item but it's hard if those super bag on a billionaire. Nas was one m&m was one like your name and guys, you just name names, but like I said, you're trying to get the thing people can do for the coach like you're not getting me out there for free. That's it those guys I'm not saying that message. You're shorting Missy does it so it's no insult to her. Just say in the sense of skill wise talent wise, with the audits expected that really the only one that makes a whole lot of sense. Anyone else is kind of Oh, nope LL Cool J there'll be another go against buster. Yeah,

Jeff:

there'll be going I mean that might be above it though like when we talk about j and NAS we'll never do it and I think a lot of probably in that category to

Anthony:

me elda want to term the phrase goat so she has an album called goat. Exactly. So you can call yourself that come on up. Come on, come on out here. greatest of all

Jeff:

time. Yeah, we're gonna talk about this Netflix workout

Anthony:

Sure, I still think it's dumb as hell but

Jeff:

released a statement you know saying whatever whatever they're not canceling shit. They're not taking off the Dave Chappelle show, bro. No, they just not they just got the shit they're not canceling it. And I've seen people too saying like Yo, they was okay with that one show Netflix had with the little girls they were all like little girls dancing half naked. Remember I forget what show that was

Anthony:

like. It was like like once in the movie is out of context. But they okay with that shit.

Jeff:

And you know, I don't know. I'm not trying to get into deep into this because we had this conversation already last week. Like he's a comedian. He wasn't purposely saying anything derogatory towards the LGBTQ plus community. I don't understand what the upgrade is about the uproar. And what is it some employees quit right some employees quit Netflix or something like

Anthony:

that? I don't know they don't

Jeff:

have they quit they had a little walkout thing going back in the office and work on this car here in the streets you may as well I mean no. McDonald's and White Castle in Ohio for like $20 an hour so they could get a job somewhere.

Anthony:

No they're not. Are you going to quit your job right now to go to work away?

Jeff:

Hell no. But if they did, they wouldn't walk out on Netflix. They could go work out here but

Anthony:

but no it's not because it's a fucking scam. Because what's going to happen is once it kind of gets back to normal to go find your ex as quickly as you can you come into work late fired. You didn't come back from break fired. nega nega $21, in perpetuity at a job where I said it's $21 an hour didn't say how many hours you're working either that's a good point to dig in 21 to get here to 10 hours a week and tracks that they're gonna hire mad people just to work 10 hour shifts. Yeah, a week but yo you're like yo you work work the morning we'll get three hours in the morning you will get three hours an afternoon you work three hours in the evening. And I said you rotate them back and forth and I pay somebody 21 $21 an hour for eight hours a day. five days a week. No, that's our phone for the Flim Flam they've been pulling the wool over your eyes anything in regards to attempting this whole Netflix thing? I don't understand why all this mindfuck is mad all of a sudden they've been talking while shit about the LGBT community for free fucking pretty freakin special is like what makes this one special so special that you got like go up in action in arms like he's been putting y'all off he hasn't said anything different he's been pretty much steadfast on what he said and what he's doing but now you decide to get mad say like oh no we're going to going to fight back and we don't feel that this is hate speech and so on so forth. Like I said he said things that were Wilder and the ones before why you guys are picking and choosing this and becoming bad actors out here this one in a protest and trying to make changes all of a sudden could have been made them changes this don't make no special you're you're proving his point like people are just all performative. Not now you want to do action, you want to do walkouts, and other bullshit. Y'all could have been did that This ain't no special cell. That's why I press the button. Y'all figure this shit out. Dave not going away. And even even he said, like, you know, I'm willing to sit down with people that have the LGBT community and talk about this and try to get some things clarified. That's all it requires fucking discussion. y'all gotta be some mentorship stop doing that just get the man to speak to y'all in private get things cleared out and go from there.

Jeff:

Yeah, I agree. I mean, I don't know. This shit is crazy to me, bro. I felt like the whole world that we live in right now. It's crazy. You got to walk on eggshells. You got to tiptoe around certain topics and issues and certain words you can't say like that's a difficult one. I'm not saying I mean tiptoeing around I'm just saying the world we live in now. Anything you do say try to cancel you

Anthony:

know the key word is try

Jeff:

everybody's a soft now. Like the whole society they saw they try

Anthony:

to cancel they don't succeed Namie named me five people they have successfully canceled out. Take your time. Take your time you right doesn't exist

Jeff:

tribal man, they make people's lives a little harder. I would say

Anthony:

it's not even a real thing. Man cancer culture exists on the internet and the internet is not a real thing is a bunch of posts and finally worded tweets and everything else like that talking about we're going to do this and you should do that and yet I think

Jeff:

has affected certain people. I think certain people would like l&d generous You know, I'm saying I had to cancel his show for all the shit that he was bullying people

Anthony:

Well, I mean, I mean that I mean that canceled and unless you're just a shitty boss, who just terrible just terrible human being that's,

Jeff:

that's still cancer coaching. But we're going by what some people are saying like, Oh, she bullied me. But she was mean to me or whatever

Anthony:

the fuck word but they were saying that the people those are people that work for you imagine if

Jeff:

this shit existed back in the day. Bro in the 90s you know I'm saying we've heard the rumors of people like Mariah being divas J Lo and all it is you know i mean when they have the representatives booking hotel rooms for them they're like Yo, I need my pillows to be blue. I need to I need a jar of m&ms waiting for me but I only want the yellow ones you know I'm saying like whatever like you know imagine I should now like Oh, she's a diva she's a bully. She made me do this and that, you know, Puff Daddy made me walk for cheesecake. Imagine Puff Daddy trying to send you to walk across a whole borough for some cheesecake or whatever. Imagine transition now they were canceled or they were trying to cancel that.

Anthony:

No, I would just walk like three blocks where you couldn't see him and call like Uber Eats home drop your kid off your back. Walking on.

Jeff:

Does that Cambodian cheesecake acts for some bullshit

Anthony:

and not an effect of being tough. We're talking about like behavior like say like Mariah Carey j Lo's Puff Daddy something like that. They're particularly stars and you already know what you're getting yourself into. Like you know the kind of person you're working for you know how they operate you know this is who they are some like Elon like like cuz she has this veneer and come on TV she's smiling happy and so on so forth just a great person there behind scenes is a total fucking asshole don't don't mean she got cancer doesn't mean like some people some people got tired of wishing they told the truth better the whole thing about cancer you cannot cancel something that doesn't exist is a lot of shit people should probably be canceling but they're not talking about that like

Jeff:

and we had a we had a whole episode about well I was you know I was expressing my frustration with today's soft culture I called it and you know recently the NBA list came out a new list of like the top men but they always had like the top 50 greatest players and the videos necessarily proper universe right so now is the set now they released the list of you know 75 greatest players of all time obviously they got I don't have a problem but like the top 10 they got like Jordan at the top you know I'm saying like Bill Russell Wilt Chamberlain Colby you got the list with

Anthony:

you. If he took the top 50 from last time and kept the 50 just added 25 more not really

Jeff:

took some people off though. I didn't see like Patrick was Patrick Ewing on there. I don't even remember seeing him. But the point is like some people like I saw what's his name Klay Thompson from the war and he's complaining and all these other places like I should be higher on the list or I'm not on the list or some bullshit like Yo,

Anthony:

well, I mean, I mean, it's not just on the list. You know, I mean, Clay I mean clay has a point. What's the point? I read the clarinet list and Reggie Miller it but you've been in

Jeff:

the league a few years bro you're not gonna you know I'm saying be higher than Some legends and some Hall of Famers and some all time greats. You know I mean, you're just not and

Anthony:

you want in you won three titles. So what

Jeff:

Reggie Miller never had three other all stars on his team. He just never did. Reggie Miller was on some very good teams in the East where it was real tough back then to come out of the East. And the one year he would have probably one was the year where they had the brawl. We run our tests and autumn boys and Jermaine O'Neal, that was a squad I had the best team in the league that year. Doesn't matter. Do they ever make the finals? They made the finals once and lost the Lakers. Who the Pacers pacers made the finals once? Yes. And they played Who? They lost to the Lakers. But remember what year? I don't fucking know. Early 2000s

Anthony:

maybe was even on a team that time.

Jeff:

Man, for sure Reggie Miller played in the finals. It was like 2001 2002 that's when the Lakers was cooking. They beat the Nets they beat the Sixers and they beat the Pacers if I'm not mistaken three straight years I'm sure you're gonna correct me now

Anthony:

I'm looking it up I'm looking at the roster right now. That day

Jeff:

What year was it 2000 okay he was on there bro he retired so later so after the palace though the malice in the palace situation happened he retired like the

Anthony:

yesterday. So I didn't even deserve to be unsatisfied recently completed in one fucking final. At least at least pack play. So that's what

Jeff:

we're doing now. Now we're judging players on how many finals they went to.

Anthony:

Should be up there, right? No, because he was talking about the best player. Okay, right even

Jeff:

90 in the entire 90s Reggie Miller was one of the best players and one of the best shooters

Anthony:

but it's not. Are you saying I told him right at that regiment was better than Klay Thompson? I'm gonna say that. Is he better than

Jeff:

Thompson is always hurt Reggie Miller's never was never heard his career

Anthony:

Klay Thompson got hurt the past couple years he's pretty much always been healthy. That's why did win winning is I'm asking is Reggie Miller better and better than Klay Thompson

Jeff:

tough though, man it's tough to judge that it's two different areas. The same argument is Evers two different errors with this person in that era because the person playing as ever we saw Reggie Miller perform in the toughest error. an NBA where there wasn't calling a lot of follow. They do now. defense was tougher. And he was one of the premier players. He was one of the best shooters that we ever saw. Even though recently Even so, you know, besides Ray Allen, Reggie Miller was one of the best shooters we ever saw. Obviously now we got guys like clay and Steph Curry. That's probably the best shooters ever. But in the entire 90s Reggie Miller was considered one of the best shooters we ever saw.

Anthony:

12345656 kind of all stars. No, I'm saying in a in a 22 to 39. So in a 17 year career version Miller averaged more than 20 more 20 more points six times but he's their best player. Yeah, right but but even though Michonne was probably a better shooting guard and he was probably right, so my whole point about the arguments and not saying that Reggie Miller wasn't great i don't think he deserves to be in this list Klay Thompson probably does like they put fucking Dame Lillard on this list. He shouldn't be he shouldn't be on a list over carry no way

Jeff:

i mean i think there's

Anthony:

I think they talked about it the way that they chose the players is like a metric system is like you know, I don't know that I've met certain criteria that it was going for the level of fucking Dwight Howard who three time Defensive Player of the Year Hall of Fame and he's probably gonna be a Hall of Fame and there was a time when he was probably the second best player in the league behind the bronco and they were like nah, but that's hoping like you know, it really comes down to him like they just don't like him. Cool I made it by cool I got chips he made it Anthony Davis made it somehow Damian likes it dame's dames. The thing about Dame is just weird. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Like I just don't see him there over carry. It doesn't make any sense to me. Or me. I mean, he could try to make it make sense to me but it just doesn't. And I think there were 123456 I think maybe the six or eight one time or a long time Next on the list. And we took a walk read the butcher Pat mellow mellow a delicious time who else

Jeff:

mellow was far down on that wasn't like 50 at this time she wasn't even top Now I'm not saying but I'm saying like you know I don't know what the criteria is all but he's gonna end up you know, one of the highest scores of all time. He's gonna be like in the top 10

Anthony:

Did you just players and media people voting on it? That was it. That was only like Like, they're not saying like who's number one who's number two? He's got to listen to all 75 and that's it. It just like i said i find it weird that Anthony Davis is there I find it weird that that Dan blue is there and I find it weird that Reggie Miller still there I like it and it's not me hating Reggie Miller because I'm a Knicks fan. I just never quite saw it I think it gets personal people think he's a Knicks kill him like he wasn't that great of a score he wasn't that great of a player he just happened to be you know, talking to Ricky Miller.

Jeff:

Anyway the only reason I mentioned that because like I said players over here complaining you're if you're on the list just be happy on the list. It's like rappers when they talk about you know being on being mentioned like JT Chris talks about this all the time being mentioned in the top five he was like yo, I don't care what position I'm on a phone is I'm in the discussion you know I mean, that's it. Don't no one's gonna listen not complaining yet but I've heard like I said Klay Thompson was complaining about you know, they completely leave Thompson off. Is that the thing? Yes. Okay, sure. I thought he was complaining about being lower down on the list. No, he was just he's not gonna get off. Yeah, all right. Well, like I said, he hasn't really played in like two years so I'm assuming you know, whoever wrote this to some young person who you know what microwave energy. Like this generation is they're like, Yo, what have you done for me lately though, like we haven't seen him in a couple years so he ain't gonna be on it.

Anthony:

But he said like the White House would be they just don't like your assets. Probably. What? Well, yeah, like these, like the voting panel. These are the people needed some people to own a voting panel. Michael Jordan Sam Jones, Nancy Lieberman, Robert Parrish, Candace Parker, Bob Pettit. Gregg Popovich, David Robertson, Bob Ryan Charles hoops, Michael Winterbottom. James are the coaches gmms player they

Jeff:

shouldn't forget.

Anthony:

Yeah, you're

Jeff:

like, shit. Well, take a quick break. I'm gonna come back with Word of the Week.

Jeff:

We got to get in over a week. And this is a word I say a lot. And that's an actually said, I referred. I used it when I was referring to you early in the beginning of the episode and his son s o n. What up son? According to urban dictionary.com it is the effect of the East Coast equivalent of homie mainly used in New York. Yo what up son hold it down. It also can be used to prefer as a close friend used as an acceptable international greeting a person who is whose name is unknown to you or one of which you have forgotten. Yeah, so what I'm saying what I'm saying but you know what's funny about that word, because I personally use it obviously as a term of endearment. I call my Son Son even though he's my real son, but I, I'm Sonny, but there's people that own like to be called son. They'd be like, Yo, I'm not your son or like you Oh, like you know, he's sending you you know, like the legacy like if it's a diss or an insult, I guess I don't know. Maybe some people use it, but I don't know. I can't see why somebody would be would feel threatened by that word. I would feel you know, I mean, offended by being called son, but I personally never use it to offend anybody use it to refer you know, it went up, son. They don't even sound offensive. If people take it further, I've seen people get mad like, yo, you son made you son and me. Well, I mean at the time, are you? And I've heard other people like gasp people are like, oh, yo, he's son, you Yo, he's son, dude.

Anthony:

I don't make a difference if you don't know what it means. I want to say that like you look at my cheat sheet like a little last boy.

Jeff:

Get What up, son? No,

Anthony:

how do you sort of represent

Jeff:

what the nasza represent represent?

Anthony:

Really your son, right? Oh, 100% there's nothing everyday slang you hear in the street. Somebody here from time to time and like, you kind of go from there. And you're good to go. But it's not like you know, I don't think you would really hear that if you were like down south. Because he had a particular by Sheila Decker. Like, son said I'd be a little bit too close to boy and they might not.

Jeff:

Cuz that'd be like, that'd be like if a white boy, white boy but a white man or whatever comes over you. Hey, son, like I just find that like offensive would you take that like as a type of racism?

Anthony:

I would need to check the tone of the person telling it to me.

Jeff:

It's all about tone context. here because

Anthony:

like, like, if it's like, let's say as a girlfriend but right, depending on what you say, bitch.

Jeff:

Like, I don't know, I wouldn't never use the word to somebody that I don't know. Like, imagine you go to Starbucks. Like, Hey, can I take your like Yo, son? Yes, son. Let me get number one son. Let me get my Chino son with some whipped cream. I thank you. Thank you, sir.

Anthony:

Hey, by Sir, I'm not a son. I'm a woman. So you gotta know your clientele even saying shit like that? Cuz you can say it. Sure. But it's like, Who the hell am I saying this to is the audience. The right inappropriate one. Because you can say a lot. But if they're not trying to hear anything, or do anything in regard to it won't make that a bit different. Because some people are trying to get away from it all. We could talk, we could send, send, send it up, but we know what we're doing in an instance of what we're talking about. If we invite somebody that's not really familiar with anything about hip hop or anything about hip hop culture, they start saying certain things can be last thing and like, I don't I don't know. Like, I know you're not good enough cuz it's gonna be fucking weird, cuz you're not going to know. I'm not gonna know. But they're gonna know notice. Like, it might be in competition with white people, and then they say certain shit. And you're like, just kind of like stand there and like nod your head. But it gets to that particular point where like, once you're away from them, you're like, Yeah, what the fuck would they talk about? Like, I don't know, man. I just I just kind of I just got agreed and went along and about my merry way. But sons a great word, man. It's it's transitional. I think people shoes more often. It's a good way to greet somebody.

Jeff:

You imagine a president is up on the podium and a reporter is asking them some shit. Mr. President, what you're going to do about this Cobra relief? Hey, son, thanks for the question. Let me answer that for you son. Imagine Obama, agassi. byington because he kind of like old fashioned your son. I'm sending these stimulus checks to all Americans.

Anthony:

Man, commanded Levi to work early Monday. While I was Monday, fucking Obama's coming coming to North New Jersey to talk to my kids. I hate shilling bullshit for governor Murphy. Like governor Murphy don't get to sit in the back. Yeah. So they completely shut down shut down left, right man.

Jeff:

The guy running against him is like it's like another Trump. So I mean

Anthony:

shit against him it was Jackson jack

Jeff:

but they call him like Trump 2.0 like he's not gonna win in fucking Newark. There's like no way you know, I'm saying like Murphy like Murphy would have to come out there and be like, Fuck the kids.

Anthony:

Like you got to see that and like in north and like the heart of it. Yeah. But but so it's a it's like a democratically run state. So it was impossible. Have you ever lose like and I don't think that dude is like a real challenge to him but I just want to go ahead and do it so

Jeff:

anyway like I said we're still doing a woman APPRECIATION MONTH who was supposed to have some females Come on some women some ladies I was supposed to come on this week but you know I mean they kind of get their computers together and they can get this

Anthony:

Anthony:

I might I might alone this shit out the people that probably didn't deserve it but and trust me I can guarantee you it there's no inner world that I'm out here on people like a fuck ton of money know that? It might be stupid owe me money, but I owe nobody money. No, you think it's funny, but you don't know me money?

Jeff:

Jeff:

Shout out to your mom Duke says oh by the way. Speaking of ladies shit, because it was a busy week because my mom's birthday was on the 20th and encuesta dentally my wife's birthday is the very next day the 21st it was the fucked up part yes we like me so shout out to them Happy Birthday because of how they are they got it you got to do two separate things from like you cannot do that shit together well that was gonna get into that because you know how this parents that do that they will have multiple kids and they'll say some of them have their birthdays around the same month or the same weeks so they'll just do some shit like oh we're gonna celebrate both of them at the same time but when you start getting older that should all fly you know I'm saying

Anthony:

Yeah my wife might want to go somewhere or do some other shit or whatever but you know your mother's like I just want to go to dinner if even then I don't know know your mother where I know you're most probably like I am going out but I'm gonna go ahead and cook on your birthday. Yeah, that's cool. We could fuck you mean your mother we're like that she does she's non stop with it. She doesn't even have to do that but she just does it

Anthony:

but what I call a sexy Yeah, like like you don't want to fuck the car The car itself can be sexy

Jeff:

you know? I mean, but um yeah, this might be the shortest episode we've done. And I always tell everybody like I'll just keep it under our we never do that'd be you.

Anthony:

Keep your head down, man. We're gonna shoot the dude's name but the thing is that your wife told you the numbers before she was all excited like oh my god you guys are doing so well. I think you give a fuck about the time alone just listening and putting out good content. I don't think they care. I'm not saying that we don't care about y'all but I know if we put good shit you listen to it no matter how long it is. I'm not even gonna go like an hour 10 hour 28 like three hours some changes like Joe Rogan. You know what's weird? I thought about this a couple days ago cuz I guess because of the news about him. It's been months since I listen to Joe Budden podcast.

Jeff:

No, I think Nick castle did no blanket but I haven't seen it because I used to watch it so always check it out on YouTube and I haven't I haven't even been I'm saying I haven't seen on ramifications that she hasn't been recommended to me

Anthony:

on Soundcloud it could be because the Spotify do it and

Jeff:

I haven't listened to it. So I after the show was canceled.

Anthony:

And then Roy Moore they got a new deal. It might be like $10 million. I think Charlemagne got his own showdown, right? is always the things and so on so forth. So it's not really trying to audition for it. I'm proud of everything that they're doing and pushing like the podcasting and the culture forward, but it's just weird. I mean, it hasn't been a podcast you listened to before that all of a sudden you just like completely forgot about like, Oh shit, I used to fuck with them.

Jeff:

But yeah, like I said, we do have a special guest next week. Very talented young lady. And I want to ask, No, I haven't done this in a while. I got a quote. I got a quote. This is by Ryan Holiday. Wherever we are whatever we're doing and wherever we are going we owe it to ourselves to our art to the world to do it. Well.
