Jeff DeLaRosa:

Thank you for tuning in to another episode of the culture this boy Jeff here with my my aunt was to drink to drink shit it's not even it's not even 10am which we got some Jim Beam honey

Anthony:

it's five o'clock somewhere she smell good to

Jeff:

y'all it started off first and foremost giving a shout out to our patrons because we loved it and I think I think we left out Mikey sheet last week when we was running down to patrons Hmm I think I did I think I forgot to mention I'm gonna start off with him Your shout out to my man Mikey sheet. His wife currently about to have a baby. Baby Boy you got invited to the baby shower? Yeah, I'm going to Oregon that's the thing so I wanted to apologize I'm not gonna be able to make it you know due to my current circumstances I'm not going to be able to fly out to Portland. But what I will do is I will definitely get him some from the registry.

Anthony:

Have you seen the registry? I haven't looked at it it's fine it is they got they got like they got like some baby Air Max 990 on that's what it got to do I'm a good and what website is is Amazon know when you click the thing is a register underneath so they got like the baby Air Max. I think they got like, like little baby Air Force ones.

Jeff:

I'm giving them all types of shit.

Anthony:

He says though, I like I like I like I know. I know. I did this was

Jeff DeLaRosa:

shout out to my man sea bass, aka Simba. The Lion King.

Anthony:

Oh Mufasa

Jeff:

they're doing a reboot the reboot.

Anthony:

Yeah, they're doing they're doing a prequel. We're just Mufasa my whole thing is like hopefully he said his brother for failure. If I ask God to kill the negative

Jeff DeLaRosa:

you think this man is doing you think King Joffrey Joker is doing the voice.

Anthony:

James Earl Jones would be doing voice work until the point that he dies. I'm pretty sure that they have like him recording just words from this point forward. If they ever want to do like a Darth Vader thing or any kind of Lion King shit. They're going to have his voice on fire. I'm surprised backs because it doesn't make sense to go back in time as Mufasa have a completely different voice that voices James Earl Jones.

Jeff:

If is not James Earl Jones. I'm telling you right now I'm not watching the movie. I'm just not watching it. That's where they try to if they try to be slick and put like, you know Morgan Freeman or somebody I'm not watching it, bro. Morgan Freeman has a great voice too. But no, it has to be James Earl Jones.

Anthony:

Morgan Freeman is the voice of God. James Earl Jones is the voice of Darth Vader. He's also the voice of Mufasa. And well, I mean, could you play the character? I mean, like, like, like, say Morgan Freeman is the voice of God, but he hasn't even really got he's like the character of God, like Darth Vader, and foster are characters that are voiced by Hammond. King Jaffe, Joe like you see, James Earl Jones, the other ones just hear if anybody else has an impulse, it doesn't make sense. I mean, I mean,

Jeff:

who else could actually do it? Morgan Freeman.

Anthony:

What Morgan Freeman has been fostered down sounds weird because like it would have to be someone with a deep voice but younger. Because like I said, early Mufasa unless he was sounded like that since he was like a cub. Which would be hella weird, because symbol symbol will change over the years. So I'm gonna assume the fastest shirt but I'm happy that it's coming out to our guests next year to whatever but it's gonna be fine.

Jeff DeLaRosa:

Shout outs to Melly Mel. Hi, Mel. Tosh. Hi, Tosh. Shout out to Eric Grant Kaiser.

Anthony:

I love that grant part. It's hilarious to me.

Jeff:

It's Last but certainly not least, Alex, so say aka D block Helwig. And speaking of like, so say, aka D block Helwig. I'm supposed to apologize to this man. And you let me know if this is warranted or not. I've been asked to apologize publicly on the air correct. And I don't even know if I have to or if I should. He goes and this is what we talked about last week about the whole Romeo Santos argument with the song being a trap or whatever. Once he hears the episode he goes, and I quote, This is why you need to be there when Jay talks about what he discusses. While he's saying all this about hip hop and trap and word completely ignores that our argument was derived from the fact that he has always said mumble rap and trap was not real hip hop. And that's why I was having that discussion with him to begin with. It was cause of that. Your stance was on trap music and mumble rap in the past this and where it changed my whole argument, son. Wow. Hey, my entire argument was that that song was a trap song. You try to deny that by saying it's hip hop influenced. No and word it's a trap song whether you want to say it's hip hop or not. That's you but that wasn't my argument. You just switch the argument because you couldn't admit it was trap. Not what the fuck you said in the pod fuck out of here. I'm gonna have to call And very soon, son and words are trying to soiled my name. And then he goes, that was blasphemy on the pod. You kept going, I wasn't saying a word I was just let him cook. I'm gonna expect an apology and correction next week, son, I have receipts. Do you think an apology is warranted? And like I said, I've always said mumble rap and trap is not real hip hop to me. Like I never liked I don't like you know, trap I don't really like I don't like mumble rap at all obviously. Right. But at the end of the day, it's still hip hop. I can you know, I mean? So does this man deserves an apology? Nah, Nah, he's cool. He said we sold his name on the airwaves

Anthony:

we've been sold this name was a miscommunication. It wasn't like, we're not saying that you don't know what you're talking about just kind of having a discussion about that. I just took whatever point was given towards me made a response. But I want to apology. That's the whole. That's the beauty of American society. Like we have the right to freedom of speech that I mean, we got to apologize for the shit just kind of set it. Now we were You were misinterpreted. Maybe should have taken a different way back on pologize. for it, you know, this, this is what you do. The next time that you have a point that you want to have talked about texts, anything else like that, I just need you to send it to the show, send to Jeff or whatever. Just send whatever your statement is whatever evidence you have beyond that, just write it down so he can read it word for word. So nothing gets misconstrued. There was something obviously lost in translation here should happen. It's nothing to really get been thought about and like I demand an apology. In a retraction like, it's already said, I'm not gonna go back and delete it. It is what it is. And oh my god is Romeo Santos. Like, why have you been mentioned in the category hip hop at all? Like, I don't care? Fuck this dude. Like no, like, I understand Jay Z said would sit for five minutes to talk about the importance of hip hop and everything. I said, Great, great. Now, just because we've made this one smaller error, what it provided us with a lot of talk time to speak on these particular things. So if anything, I want to apologize to you want to say thank you. It was very, very helpful. He was able to have a whole conversation about you know, hip hop and Latin music and Latin arts and so forth from what it is not just because of Miss Miss. Direction, some misunderstanding. So thank you more than anything else, man. We appreciate that. But are you getting an apology? No.

Jeff:

Thank you the blog. The culture loves you.

Anthony:

We do man. Anyway, yo, there's

Jeff:

I don't even know if you realize that today is September 11. How to

Anthony:

get the crazy like,

Jeff:

You got to be Felicia probably. Cuz we should have probably started off with that. But it wouldn't, you know, didn't even occur to me that it's been what, 22 years now.

Anthony:

21 It's

Jeff:

all happened in 2001 121. Yeah, yeah. But yeah, but yeah, that was a first responder that Yeah. It's a lot shout out to Mr. Austin.

Anthony:

It's a lot though. Like, I guess it's one of the things like he's kind of known. He watched like attributes, and so on and so forth. But it's not, it's like a wound, you really don't want to pull all the time. Like, we're like we're trying to, we got enough situations and prompt in this nation internally that that was an external threat. 21 years ago, everybody remembers where they were and what they were doing at that time. But it's more of a sense of dread to shoot like almost any other day, but not in a negative way. Like you acknowledge what happened, you always, you know, blessing thoughts and prayers to those who lost their lives that day, the family to continue forward after that. You kind of keep it as is because it's a lot to bear with because even the images and everything else that people saw, I mean, it's unforgettable, like someone said that like no, there's no way I would forget that day. I just didn't want to like fully acknowledge it, because it says a lot to deal with. It really, really is

Jeff DeLaRosa:

rest and peace to those that died on that day. Or she was scary. But also, Queen Elizabeth died. Do we care? Do we care?

Anthony:

Good question. I don't.

Jeff:

I mean, she was historically known as being racist, right? And, you know, she was 96. So when I said, you know, like, Oh, she's somebody told me she thought I said finally. And they were like, Damn, you call this shit like, you don't? I'm like, Well, you know shit. I mean, first of all, we give so much importance to like the British monarchy and shit. Like we don't you know that. None of us has ever gone to England. None of us are probably ever gonna go to England. Like why should we? You know, I'm saying do you think they sit around when one of our people dies over then and make a big fucking do like, oh shit, you know, George Bush died. Okay, they'll mention it. Hey, Queen George Bush died today. Oh, that's sad. Anyway, are we going to have our tea and crumpets? Like what time is that I don't know, I feel like we give more importance to their shit than other countries do to our shit. I could be wrong. Plus, she was racist. So you know, I'm not really. And she was 96 she lived a long life, bro. Like you gotta go, we've

Anthony:

ever run a scenario, I'm going to run a scenario by you. Let's say you're growing up. And for the first, let's say the first 20 years of your life, as a person odorless let's get a person to seven year age advantage. And a person used to bully you beat you up, take your money, demean you, fuck with you. Just do everything to make your life a living hell stop for a couple years, and we get older, you get a job. And for some odd reason, this person is now your superior. And they carry on the same old bullshit for years after debt. Now you leave that job. So let's say let's say after 12 years, we left whatever you supposed to do, whether it was buying house, married, whatever everything else like that. This person dies. And they want the greatest soul torment. It's in your entire life. Do you feel any sympathy for them?

Jeff DeLaRosa:

No. I mean, I'll have some sympathy for the family. I'll say you know, rest in peace, send my condolences but

Anthony:

and that's where a lot of people, a lot of people, especially people of color of carnage that have been, you know, under British rule feel about her. And people are mad about that because they're like, no, she died should should be respectful. Like, you can't tell someone who suffered, how they should grieve or not grieve at all. But it's it's fine to say, you know, you shouldn't be so Jewish about it. Like you didn't know what that country did to us what it did to our people what pressure it put us on that for years, and all of a sudden we're supposed to just be like, Yeah, everything's cool. Are we this real quick, during a soccer soccer match at to Life Stadium in Dublin, Ireland on Thursday night. Just hours after the death of Queen Elizabeth the Second the crowd broke into song, Lucy's in the box loses in the box. Britain's longest death of Britain's longest reigning monarch at age 86 was an outpouring of tributes from people around the world mourning her passing. But critics of the crown were quick to point out the royal families role and the subjugation of people in country formerly controlled by Britain, including Ireland, India and Nigeria, the prominent online debate over the monarchy itself. So you to me and I'm going to read this because this professor said that and it got removed could have caught a lot of hell. This is a Uju Anya, associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University of Pittsburgh. Sure, I heard the chief monarch of a thieving, raping genocidal empires finally dying, May her pain be excruciating. Now people going to sit is going a bit too far, but you're not the one that's under that pain. You're not the one under that thumb. So you're going to have a particular viewpoint or Limelight we're going to look at the situation in but like I said, there's a they have a history of slave trading imperialism, colonialism, theft, like the idea of like the symbol of opulence, the royalty of it all that leads to situations like this. So when people are mad that other people are kind of like, like kind of tapping into the grave I always had an issue with someone tap dancing on the grave but I get it if someone has you know put you through all of this effort all the time. And for almost feel like Sorry about them dying. You're probably the kind of person that just couldn't wait for him to go you know, a lot of see so is it a bit much yeah, it is. But is it? Is it undeserving? I can't say that it's not especially likes it when you're the one under that person's thumb. That's like, that's like a slave like crying because their former slave master died and like, dude, I'm free. I can finish shit I don't care no more. Same thing. Same shit different toilet. And people just got to kind of realize that I understand because of the historical nature in a way like should we have a TV show the TV show talking about the royal family. So you kind of intertwine in the sense of social contract you guess who's agree definitely in regards to entertainment because their entire front whatever they did was always going to be front page news. Especially the death of the monarch a situation like this in all honesty, I just don't care but I get why those that are like kind of happy about this are really

Jeff:

I mean, it was widely rumored that she didn't want nothing to do with fucking Megan Markel because she was black you know, I'm saying you know, people of color girl at my house he had the fuck out of here. She can't take and you know and Harry and had none of it. So he got up out of there. He went on to do with that fucker family. So there might be some truth to that shit. But anyway. Resting power to the queen.

Anthony:

She tried. She drives logs he tried to find

Jeff:

Yo, Kanye West Kanye West went on Instagram. So simply say that Kim has diarrhea a lot like way more than a normal person should have it. Italy a woman Aloma. She ain't even whiskey no more.

Anthony:

I don't even know why he always shitting on us when we asked like I like, I love her. I want my family together. You keep doing shit that makes it clearly that you really don't like. Like, I'm guessing she takes a lot of diuretics to keep her finger in shape. I don't know. I'm guessing a lot. I don't think I could think of a flat tummy tea.

Jeff:

They said she they told me to all of them.

Anthony:

It's all big. Like imagine making it a lot like that. All right, cool. I understand that. But like, if, like, Isn't it like an entire conversation? Like he always pops up on Twitter just says he's random ass things. And he just kind of goes about it and I'm like, why do we keep doing this man? And like I said, I enjoy him as an artist. Everything else outside of that? Is whatever. Like why do I talk about the way she shits This is the love it is something or just find it weird. I don't. I'm lost here.

Jeff:

And other knows he also has beef with adidas now. Yeah, because is it Adidas or Reeboks is Adidas right at the

Unknown:

data, they make the easies.

Jeff:

So they make the easiest for foreign it dollars or whatever it is and upwards. And I guess you know he they wanted to buy him out right? And he refused. They're all from a billion dollars fairly soon. So what they do they started making knockoffs of his shit. How do you make I've never heard of this company make knock off of their own shoes to sell them cheaper. Without the middleman, it basically just eliminated the middleman. And they're making replicas of the Yeezys. Without him, or similar.

Anthony:

Yeah, similar similar knockoffs. Well,

Jeff:

and they figure out what we're gonna sell more at ease and your shirts.

Anthony:

Yeah, I mean, his uses are made in Adidas factory. So it's not outside the realm of possibility where they're like, well, we can do this shit, too. And I understand that there's an argument where he should have control over all of this. There is, but I don't know, the paperwork. I can't I can't tell you for sure that there's a clause or anything that states that they cannot do, specifically that they can do whatever they want to because, you know, they're, you know, Adidas, which is since sensible, it makes sense. But I guess you're trying to say like, if it's your biggest product, why are you taking away from it, but Nike does something similar.

Jeff:

But But no, but that would be like, if Nike said, you know, what, we're tired of paying Jordan, all this money, we're gonna just start making bootleg Jordans, there's still going to be Nike. But obviously, we're just not going to have the 23 on and we're not going to have the Jumpman logo on it. But they're going to look just like all his oh, we're gonna bring back all the retro Jordans, they're just not going to have the Jumpman logo or the 23. They're just going to have the Nike check. And we're going to sell those. And we could just cut a middleman, we don't have to pay Jordan. No royalties and residuals. And we could just keep water money.

Anthony:

It's close. It's really really close, believe it or not. Because remember, they like Jordan only made so many pairs of shoes. And what they basically do every year is they remake the shoe is a different cup. It's the same setup, but it's a different colorway. It's a different symbol is different, it's different that like it's like the shoe itself as a base. And the add on top of it like the the Pat leather tuxedo ones, the ones is white with the pattern that that goes around the front of it. I see them just in red and blue. And it's just an emerald green I seen it's a bunch of things, but it take the base of it. And they keep doing the same thing and making putting up same thing over and over and over and over and over again. But they have a particular agreement with Mike was like, they don't have an issue with Michael they split the brick with Michael like, you're you're still gonna get tons of money. So a week. But we don't have an issue with you because this is still your ownership your brand, but we work together. The thing with Kanye, he's always confrontational. I think he honestly believed that he can do all of this shit by himself. He might be right. I don't think it's possible. But I think he might be right. Because like I said, Didn't you have to figure out how factories are going to work how shipping a distribution and going over how to we're going to work with the stores because he's had an issue. Everybody's working at it. He had an issue with adidas before that he had an issue with gap. And they were putting his clothes out. And I think that issue one thing that gap had an issue with recently like his new line is not on the shelves, some home basically. Right? It's basically black bags on the ground where people scrimmage through and pull it out and do it that way. That's how he was like, Yeah. And I'm like, I don't see how that's interesting. I've never been into it. See the thing I heard that The heaters are really comfortable.

Jeff DeLaRosa:

I have heard that they are actually I've had I had one on before.

Anthony:

I've heard that and yeah, I believe yes, it's real. They're really, really comfortable. But when I see the clothes when it's like struggle, where when it's basically like, Hi chic homeless, like, like holes and shit and miss in misshapen collars and stuff like that it's supposed to be fashionable. But I've been like, I've been seeing Kanye, but I don't see you wearing a shirt that you show here. But you want us to wear it. Like, I don't know if you think we're suckers or not. But this is like, this is what he's doing. And this is what's going on. I think that whole argument with him with Adidas is kind of complicated, because we don't necessarily know the details of the contract. We don't know if they're able to do so I think they are able to do so because if they weren't able to do so he wouldn't be just saying the sheet out loud, he will be in court with them. Because he was in court, he would, you know, call for copyright infringement. So to that degree, he hasn't done that yet. That would have been the first thing that he did, but he's not doing it with him. He's bitching about it because he didn't get out of his Adidas contract. And they're not going to go ahead and let him go. Because if this was an issue with something looking very similar, this would be a copyright problem. He never took him to court regarding copyright started complaining about it. So I don't think of contracts. There's nothing says that they can't do it. You would think in good in good tasting good conduct. They probably shouldn't. But they are because they like money too. And your thing looks very similar to this thing. And we can sell this thing a little bit cheaper than your thing. But it does the same thing and feel and everything else like that. Because all made the same fucking factory and we get money to Waterford. We're not going through the capitalist. It's a big fucking global company. We're gonna just care about this shit right here. Absolutely that man to fly them sandals over here, we'll make some good with them.

Jeff DeLaRosa:

And for Kanye is clothing line, bro, I'm not trying to spend hundreds of dollars just to look homeless. You imagine you walk around just looking homeless as fuck and you spent $100 for a fucking sweater. And $200 for a pair of worn down jeans and my focus is throwing money at you because they think you're homeless. And she's like, Yeah, I've thought of money I just spent on this outfit. I'm gonna need that. I'm gonna need that change thrown at me. Because I'm broke.

Anthony:

I imagine imagine buying a kind of shit and going outside and seeing it the bus stops might give you change. They think you homeless.

Jeff DeLaRosa:

Right? And you're like you're taking because you just spent all your money on the fucking Kanye clothing.

Anthony:

Maybe Maybe that's the hustle. Like if you buy the shift and some people give you money they think you broke so it's like a discount like it's a coupon? Fuck out here.

Jeff:

Hi. Oh, the other topic I wanted to talk about? Sure, because it is an epidemic in our culture. Right. And I'm talking about tardiness. You know, I'm punctual. I like to show up places early. And I know you'd like to show up to places on time at the very least.

Anthony:

She I'm not I'm not a I'm not a strong proponent of CP time. What the fuck is cp time? Color people time? When it's like when like the party starts at eight but you get there at 930 Like because you're not there on time. Not an African

Jeff:

time. But you know that when you invite you make invitations you got to play if you want people to start showing up by eight you got to put like six right on the on the ship.

Anthony:

Yeah, yeah, you have to give them a really early target date. Because all right, so like if you're having a dinner and you know it'd be ready by six you tell them for cook they'll get there by six and it shouldn't be ready. It's real kind of weird twisted calculus that we do. But it works

Jeff:

yeah, so that's like I said it's an epidemic in the Latino community and in the black community Mowaffak is just never early. They just have to be late

Anthony:

by hour good reason. Yeah, I can see I can see 2530 minutes like three hours later like you know it's the worst like we have a muffin have like a barbecue then someone shows up like hours late they're like where's the food that she was cooked like four hours get the fuck out of here babe like hey, like I got some more chicken like it's still 1030 Why would we have more chicken come please? No order pizza.

Jeff:

Anyway the reason I'm bringing this up is because of the Kodak Black sheet. So quarterback slammed the Made in America festival over canceled set after he arrived late. And he goes a Made in America. I don't know what's going on. This is a post he did on Instagram. This the first show ever and we're late to an N word can't perform no money. None of that shit Jay Z. Whoever running this shit rock nation Live Nation. Whatever the fuck. Y'all do better homie. This the first show and word a little few minutes late to and bitch What the fuck? I got fans out here wanting to see the N word. He went on to threaten to terminate his relationship with Live Nation and Mac agency over the cancellation. whoever the fuck y'all is. I don't even need you to do my shows no more. I'm gonna lock in and work on this album. He said this was a video he made and then later on me Due to caption over accusing the festival failing to pay him even though he showed up late he goes Made in America some bullshit. If the artist pull up late they keeping all your money even though the people pay for the tickets, they don't care about fitting the artists on stage to accommodate fans. Yo, check it out, bro. He was like an hour late man. They got other people to have to perform. We have we have time slots, bro. Get there early. And then when he says you know, this is the first time Edward been late and haven't been allowed to perform that tells me that he's been late a lot. Right? That tells me that he's late to a lot of shows. But that you know, he gets away with it. This time he didn't get away with it.

Anthony:

That's kind of fernet time with this is not a strong suit for Mr. Black.

Jeff:

If they tell you yo your set is at eight, you're gonna probably want to be at the venue around six o'clock for traffic accounted for everything. beat up by six so that you could go to the backstage set up prepared, whatever, whatever and make sure everything's good. I mean, now, you account for less

Anthony:

technical issues, a bunch of shit. But as a matter of fact, brings me to a good point. Because I know you told that story. That story here on the show before because you've told the Lauryn Hill story about how is it notorious, but Right, but what time was it supposed to start? The

Jeff:

doors opened up around eight or nine, right?

Anthony:

And what time? What time does she actually perform? Like at one in the morning? Right now you're already paid? Like the tickets is bought to the American American things like It's a festival. So basically, you're paying a ticket for the day for whoever's performing whoever's out there. I mean, you can pay for Kodak Black, but you're buying the ticket. And if you want to come in to see him and then go home. Sure. But people are performing everywhere all day, every day. So does he have a leg to stand on? I don't think so. And the whole thing, like of all people, like you want to challenge Jay Z, like, I don't think you want to, like do that. Like you might want to call him that shit the fuck down just a little bit that a lot. Like I think he had an eight. Gotta bring it down to about a 5.5. Like, don't be calling out my name. And as a matter of fact that you are my festival I know on yours. You wouldn't want to do you go make your own Fest was made America thing been going on for a while. And surely. So therefore, you know what I say goes, and these are my rules. And you're supposed to be here on time to get this shit done. And you wasn't and people get mad about it, so on and so forth. I can imagine I wish someone was there like quota blackbutt performance. I just want to be in the front essays and see how many people like turn it back and walk out. I'm pretty sure that he's a draw. He's not one of people like, you know, I got to see him. No, they came, they enjoy it. They enjoy the festival, they enjoy the day, enjoy the performances, they should have enjoyed yours. If it wasn't OCP time. I don't know what the cause was, or what does. And that's the beautiful thing about the about his his rant is like, I understand what you're saying what you're saying, but what is your reasoning for being late. Like if something happened, like if you just put that little Corvette in me a little bit different, like we were on the way and there was severe traffic or something happened or this broke down, or we couldn't like just a reasonable excuse of why you didn't get there on time. Shit, it's like anything else if you're going to be late. I know it's not just you, as you know, most of the people you mean to tell me that somebody got the phone number to somebody to call them to tell them that I'm on the way help regular people do that if they run late like I'm running late but I want you tell your boss that if you're going to revert late to work like I'm running late I'm going to call my boss right now like I'm on the way I'll send you a text to I'm stuck in traffic I pop the tire whatever I'm running late, I'll be there. Just because you are you think you are does not make you exempt from that. It's still a thing you still gotta have us there on time. And this is why we end up with this white ranting about it doesn't solve anything. It should hopefully make you more cognizant of time and make sure the next time you do something you're there on time. But a YouTube bitching about things and so on and so forth. Just because you didn't do your part doesn't make any sense to me and it's not even a sympathetic thing. I just kinda don't care man. You still rich relaxed

Jeff:

though he has to account for the people that are performing before him and after him you don't know if those people got some place to be and they try to come in do they set and leave quick but now we got to sit around and let you do your set while we wait like nah come on man get the fuck out and first of all and then again who the fuck is called Black people you think actually paid to go to the shitshow specifically see him? Maybe a few maybe a couple

Anthony:

couple 100 People I believe that we should go for the overall experience. Right because it's a bunch of people performing you don't if you want to go to see COVID at Black you go to Kodak Black concert wasn't quite at Black concert. He was performing with a bunch of other ex admin in America. That was it is only coming special yesterday and it's like the met

Jeff:

the man shit. So People were mad as fuck. That he can't make he couldn't make it. So he got the Wu Tang and nods and Busta Rhymes tour, right? So people were wiling out, you know, there's all types of out cries and outbursts and shit online and everybody calling for met the man's head and met the man had to make a video he made a video he posted it. He was like, yo, yo, I need to have chilled the fuck out. First of all, I'm recording some movies right now. And I couldn't beat it. I couldn't be at the door. He said I really wanted to, but I couldn't be there with my brothers, right? Second of all the shit is called NAS and Wu Tang. It didn't say met the man. So you're gonna get Wu Tang, you know what I'm saying? You're gonna get the rest of the Wu Tang members. You know, I'm saying that's what he was saying. He was like, Yo, I need to chill. Yeah, you know, I mean, like,

Anthony:

because I don't know if the result was there or not. I know go through. It's always been

Jeff:

it's a bunch of them, though. They can't always all be at the same place at the same time. There's too many of

Anthony:

them. method like, look, I got shit to do. I'm on power. I'm doing movies. I'm working out. Like, I got time off your shit right now. It likes. And he's one of the most respectful people when it comes to hip hop. Because if there was a tour, he says he's on it. He's on it. Nothing. I mean, it's been a bunch of toys. None of them have ever said like, no, the Wu Tang and his name is on a specific like, I'm not there. If I happen to be in a town or area if I'm doing something that's near. Maybe I pop on but I'm not there. So what the fuck do you want me to do when people are mad about this? They're like, Dude, you're gonna wait for method manteau which ain't coming on time to him because as you can see the man's busy. So I don't know why they mad at why they mad about this?

Jeff DeLaRosa:

Because I guess people went specifically to see his as I don't know, man, he's like, Yo, I'm 50 and I got options. He's got a lot of shit going on. And you know, he's blessed to be able to be 50 and still have options that will take tours, not one of them.

Anthony:

They want to see him like that people are gonna see codec but like I said that flyer said Kodak and Kodak fuck that up. The slice is Wu Tang and madman name was not there. I never said I was gonna be on tour. I'm a part of the Wu Tang Clan, but not everybody hear other people got shit to do to what he wasn't invited or whatever didn't work out. Oh, dirty never gonna be there because the man did. But I mean, it isn't there. Now Oh, no, I have bought tickets to the ship. But it happens. And I

Jeff DeLaRosa:

mean, you should have went to the ship. But Shakira is going you Boishakh here is going to the show when it goes to Florida.

Anthony:

They could cut the time when he had I think it's like on a Tuesday. And Norbert, yeah. And the thing is that and I know a lot of people hip hop is I'm trying to find anybody who I know. Personally that went but it's escaping me right now. Escaping

Jeff:

I would have, I would have to take some days off from work like I ain't gonna go on a Tuesday night. Go see Wu Tang knives get high and should just by sitting there. And then get home late as fuck TO to have to go to work the next day.

Anthony:

You know, I think that's just a part of age. Because if you have like 23 you do bounce back. You'll go right reading a book, you go right to work from the concert, drive. You gotta work from the bar up like Unsplash little mouthwash. I got another shirt, my trunk let me go to so on. And I'm good to go. Now you gotta like planning it evens out accordingly. Like if I drink this. I know I'm not gonna be shit until about two o'clock the next day. So let me plan accordingly. Nothing was younger. No rent, no bills, nothing really, really affecting you like that. Just free with your money. Yeah, whenever you got certain responsibilities, children mortgage, rent, food, whatever you like. I want it to y'all. But y'all worth a couple gallons of milk and some eggs. I don't know, let me think about this shit. I don't know if math is math on this one. They kind of end up in situations, but it's fine. It's fine. Because it'd be another thing and another tool and somebody will pop up. So that'd be great if you not, but I think it'd be performing. I think he seems more like a touring artist than Jay Z does. Because that is still active in music. And I still think he wants to like, extend that revenue stream his so I'm pretty sure to be able to catch him again.

Jeff:

And Jay is a billionaire. He doesn't even need to do concerts.

Anthony:

Now he does. He just lays out a fire verse here and there and called the

Jeff DeLaRosa:

charge on what you think he charged for a verse. So he did a five minute verse on the calendar. But don't you think they paid him for that

Anthony:

shit? For that one free? Thinks he did a favor for his wife, DJ. Okay. He's on this thing. There's a Jay Z verse on every Khaled album. every look, every cow is always the first air that I know they did. Shining was on one of them. A bunch of them no matter what. There's always achievers. Always. That's his wife, DJ. You gotta make your wife happy. Do the song for him. You don't really do songs for anybody. And like I said, I think he might be at the point. But if he wants to do it, he's doing it for the sake of the artform. He's not doing it for money. Like there's no reason for me to take. No, I don't know a quarter million dollars out of your budget. For 16 bars I don't have to do this like I'm doing this because I actually enjoy your rhyming and I want to run on this with you. You know when people have to pay everyone else has a hit charge versus not. I remember I can't remember who was I think it was some game and somebody said I think the game is supposed to pay dude like 150,000 hours for verse can't remember who but I'm like, doing that for sixteenths like that's it like, Yo, fuck, like, I don't get it and I understand it. But for guy, JC stature, you're not paying you're not getting paid versus bad. He's far beyond it. I don't think he ever should. I don't think M ever should. Nas Yeah, I think now it's something you need to pay nice for verse. I think once you once you get to a particular rarefied air we make entirely so much money that this hip hop shit in trying to live and survive off. It's just not going to matter anymore. And you just said good. You just do it first for the sake of doing versus you don't need to get paid for it. Or residual. Maybe that's it. But we

Jeff DeLaRosa:

got sidetracked going back to the troadec Shit. Can tardiness be tolerated? Like is there a situation? Well, obviously a cookout or family party? Whatever my focus is going to be late is whatever. But in the real world when money is involved in businesses involved, can tardiness or should tardiness be tolerated. I say no. You fucking up everybody's money. And everybody's time. Time is money. And if you ask it on time, then you don't get the money, man. Fuck that. When you go to work, you gotta get there on time. Right? You know, they might let it slide a couple of times, but you can't keep showing up late to work right before they start getting you know, reprimanding us.

Anthony:

I think tardiness within reason. is okay. But but it's a very, very, I mean, you run a real thin wave here. Because I hate when about focus, like I just do. And I don't mean that if some if someone starts at two, you need to be there at two o'clock. I don't mean that. I mean, 230 is fine. Three is fine. 314 is fine. I don't think you should be able to change. Time what I mean by this? I don't think if something is happening at brunch, you get there at dinner? I don't think so. I'm having a breakfast you get there in the afternoon. But like, there's, I think for me, it's you get an hour cut off for people. So people with within reason, like like, let's say today, let's see, someone's gonna have to get together to watch football. Right? And the game starts at one, but they get there too. That's fine. Believe it or not, it's okay. Like, you have to be the beginning of the game. Because the game goes on for three hours a day right before halftime, it's fine. But if you show up on like the fourth quarter some shit like that. And like, people try to get the fuck out of here. That doesn't make sense to me. I hate tardiness. And I don't hate much. I really, really, really hate when somebody's fucking late. But, but if they give me a reason, if there's circumstances beyond their control, I'm okay with it. But the thing is that if they know me, or if I know them, I will give them a common courtesy and decency to at least get in touch with them to let them know what's going on and why I'm running late, like hence, I had to stop at a gas station. So I'm going on my tire. There's a hell of a lot of traffic. But you know, on your way. I hate when someone's like, Yo, I'm on the way and I know they're in their house. I know you're in your house. They're just got out the shower issue, right. I know you're there. I know. You're like I'm on like call you like yo, I'm on the way right now. I'm in the car and I hear like Maury Povich on the background more appropriately and gotten a radio station is a TV show your home. You ain't got a lot and you can tell me that I run late. I will be cool with you saying I'm running late. I literally just got out the shower. I got a little bit caught up. I'm leaving out right now. But but don't say I'm on the road and you didn't grab the keys yet. You ain't got clothes on you sit in the butt naked in front of drawers.

Jeff:

Everybody got that? One cousin that tells you you know I'm on my way. I just left the house and you know, damn right a line. Everybody has that one person. And

Anthony:

they believe in the house for 20 fucking minutes. I want to hear that. We want to wait no, you're not. No, you're not. You got a lot of kids. You don't have to do this. Got me some of your location. Yeah, we're about to start doing that. But you know, I'm going to wait like, alright man sent me a location. Then I'm gonna play dumb. Like how do you how do you do that on the phone? like, Nah, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Jeff DeLaRosa:

Somebody's driving. You're doing a lot of texting right now.

Anthony:

Yeah, I see a lot of fingers moving. I see. I see. I see a lot of Twitter hands. And also, I wasn't gonna do that I was gonna be on time. He wasn't going to be on time. It's all right, though. I'm not even mad at you. I just want you to can just just show up and just do what I asked you to do. And we're going to no

Jeff:

no's. I hate being late. But like if your invitation says two o'clock, I'm going to be there anywhere between 130 and 150. If I can help you if I can help and I hate and you know, I get it that everybody hates being the first ones there and I kind of do. I hate being the first one but also I'm always I always am the first one. I arrived have a place where they're still setting up shit. Like, motherfucker, the invitation set to why is it 230 I still setting up shit. Like it's a Hispanic thing.

Anthony:

I know. But let me change your mind just a little bit, I think for you, you should be a little bit late. Not a lot, just a little bit. See, the thing is that when you're on time and time is precious, like, you don't want to spend all your time there. But if you're like, I started to get there at 230, you're a little late. And that's okay. Because then like, you got a little extra time to play with. And the thing is, like, especially when you go into other places, most of the time you go into other places to see other people. You want to make sure that you're there to catch everybody when you're there early, and then you're fucking exhausted. So when other people come like, it's good to see him, but like, I don't got the energy for you. I've been here for six fucking hours. I can't do No, I don't want to know I don't want to run around under shit. I am tired. I've been here forever waiting on you. The reason why he was waiting on knocking them off, I was late. That's neither here nor there. I'm speaking for you. So you can say that you got there on time got a little bit late. But you got there. So the host got everything set up. Everything's cool. You want the first people they see, you know, when the first people that leave? They can never see like, Oh, it wasn't here. You're like, No, I was here beginning. I won't say all way to the end. But I saw why didn't see the reason I didn't see the others because they were going to CPU time and if they get too late. So therefore they had to catch when the next one, which they probably won't, because they'll be late again. But you probably literally not loudly. A little that's fair. Like I think I understand. Like you're very specific about time. But even time he's a buffer, like even even your job. Like if your job starts at eight o'clock. They give you guys a window. Right? Right. Right. So what's your buffer five minutes,

Jeff:

785 10 minutes. I mean, I'm always early though, I like to get to work. I know, especially if I have to go into the office. Because I got my routines, you know, I'm saying you got to set up, turn off your computer log in. I want to go downstairs and eat my breakfast. Yeah, and all that shit. You know, I'm saying I don't want to have to get there just in time to be rushing. I want I gotta eat my breakfast. I want to do I want to be able to you know, I mean, I want to I don't want to have to rush. I want to be able to do everything on my time and still have time to spare. I go to work early, just just to get my mind. Right, you know? Exactly. You got to mentally prepare yourself for the bush Are you about to deal with for the whole day?

Jeff DeLaRosa:

So my shift is nine o'clock, I'll be in the office at eight. Yo,

Anthony:

you ready to go like, look,

Jeff:

I'm being off as an hour early on, I set up. I go through all the emails, you know, I'm saying mentally prepare myself. Then I go to the cafeteria downstairs, I get some breakfast. I eat my shit. Come back and I still got time. You know, I mean, like, I don't gotta rush now. And I really know what everything looks like. Don't feel good. bumblefuck supposed to be there at nine. They walk in at 858 55 and then they gotta go get the breakfast. So to me that means you late because now you got to go eat breakfast. And sure by the time you come back to your desk, it's like 930 and that's technically late to me.

Anthony:

I have bullshitting on office staff. It was being you know, he's supposed to be at your desk, something with a budget. So you know, I mean, I was super late. No, you wasn't You did this on purpose.

Unknown:

Now Oh, he's dead when you call but I'm always on time.

Anthony:

Yes, I am. Always on time. I hate man. No, it's not those being late part. It's motherfucker. That's consistency. Like, like, like, the thing that they're known for that, you know, they ain't gonna be on time. Even like, Fuck hit a go. You know, to you know, like, I'm inviting you, but I'm not expecting you to be here for like, three hours after the shoot because you'll never get here when I will want you to. They'll pop up like two and a half hours later. Come in fucking hungry with drinks that and we drink all that shit. We know that. I think that's what people should stop doing to determine leanness. I think people should make sure it starts on time. What does she do? She does have all the food ready at exactly that time. So whoever gets there, they start eating and once it's gone, it's gone. So when someone shows up later, they like oh, you got to make sure that no, no, no, I'm not gonna do that. Because you know why are the cops out at this time? You didn't get here? So therefore like I've been trying to grow back on No we're not. No, we're not at a time so it started this thing it you know what? I think you're right. I do think you deserve a buffer but I do believe that you're correct. It is almost like treating it like a restaurant reservation. If you make a reservation, you don't get there on time. Your reservation goes away. They give it to somebody else fix it up window. So it makes sense actually.

Jeff:

You know, I have people late to my wedding bro. I have people show up to my wedding and you were there that showed up after the vows we already said we've already eaten my wedding when we was already eaten bro like when you happen to like the invitation says six o'clock men seven and eight bro like what is this shit? It's just crazy to me. Like tardiness is not tolerated. That's my quote. tardiness is not tolerated.

Anthony:

It's a great way to end glad we started on time. And then

Jeff:

the shit I hate it was muffled to show up late but and they show up empty handed to me trade off workers show up to your cookout at 10 o'clock at night and got none in their head like which I got like, not in my pocket. We drink it and we ate it all, you know? Like, what did you bring?

Anthony:

Okay, all right, sorry. It's a tricky part. All right. So I'll ask you a question. Would you rather someone be laid off rather than be empty handed?

Jeff:

Like to lay my hands empty handed? No, no, I'd rather be late and if they're going to bring something

Anthony:

to you rather than be late and have something then show up on it just a free low not have should have been done on time empty handed? Correct. Good. The thing about the bureau being on time you can come empty handed because be there on time. You can kind of like do like service like value added services. Like I'm here early. So let me help you set up

Jeff:

labor around it. Right. But if you show up late and empty handed, that's that's unacceptable, bro.

Anthony:

Like no Corona? No, nothing, just kind of just pop up. Like call it a day. Because of anything. At least bring something because of the tardiness. You know, I

Jeff:

mean to make up for the shit. Like, you know, I got this.

Anthony:

You know what I hate? I hate the motherfucker that bring ice there appreciate it. But sometimes you need to do sometimes I don't tell you that you'll bring ice. They are appreciated. Right? When they tell them I mean when they kind of do a free one on one to bring something. It's appreciated, but you can do better. Especially when you know it's like as a family member or something else like that. You know the shit they like? Like if you know they'd like a particular beer. Just bring the fucking beer. And that's gonna be a 24k It's gonna be a six pack for that person. Like, I know you like Stella, this is for you.

Jeff:

Cool. What about what about the person that comes and only brings the shit that they're going to drink? You know, talking about? Yes, there's more focus. I only drink for example, I'm throwing it out there white claw right. So they show up to your house and they are they're bringing a six pack or a little case of white claws. And you know that nobody else is drinking that shit but them and they'll drink from other shadow drink. Yes, shit. They'll drink other people's shit, but they're gonna drink their shit. Nobody's gonna touch the sugar. They're the only ones that drink that shit. I don't know maybe it's just me that shit irks me like Yeah, bring the shit that you like cool but also make sure you bring the shit that I like you know I'm saying or ask me if I'm if I need something I'll bring the ice to something at least don't just bring the shit that you fucking consume. And that's it.

Anthony:

Everybody loves ice. I bought an ice as property from others to go along with it. I mean, I love ice and one loves ice but I one thing could be anything else besides that it seems like it's a bit much

Jeff DeLaRosa:

my focus show up empty handed talking about what you got, man. Forget what you bring. That's what we got. Nothing. Anyway, man. Always be on time, man. We gotta hear yo. Yo and I ended with a quote from Niccolo Machiavelli and he said tardiness often rubs us robs us opportunity and the dispatch of our forces
