Well, I'll talk about that a little bit. I got a new get a word of the week that actually burned in the Twitter chat. Because these these 20 year olds they have their own vocabulary.

Anthony:

And give me like buffing buffing. Yeah, but that's not the word.

Jeff:

It's an it's another popular now to everybody saying it. Apparently I'm not I mean you don't say that shocked? You don't say I don't say

Anthony:

I'm watching. I'm old. I'm watching. I'm okay with that. Man. I'm living a good life. Life I live when I thought that I was going to go crazy.

Jeff:

And your grandma was the only one call to you or the one call they

Anthony:

Jeff:

new meth lab three album came out Friday. I'm not prepared to rate it yet. Give him a mic so I got to listen to it a few more times. But I like it. I got the shoe with ARS on it. He got the shoe with. You gotta shoot with Jada on her.

Anthony:

I've always kind of lucky just like, like reading mixtapes.

Jeff:

I mean is that it? Was that a mixtape though? I don't know if that's a mixtape?

Anthony:

Because another album. Really? What do you mean? You know how? You know, like, Pat, who's kept doing the same thing every month, like every app every month. But you felt like you do a mix? Hmm. Right. Like math. like math. dropsies. Like, there's like there's no rollout there. Like, if you fuck with them. You're gonna listen if you don't, you don't know, like every other major like artists whenever they dropped something. There's something behind with methods like not my flat three out, go check it out. Like Alright, cool. You'll see I'm like doing an interview with a no like, seven to no power 105 No, nothing to talk about this

Jeff:

year, but make it his money off of you know Hollywood right now. You know, I'm saying the music. He's just doing it because that's his first love and he still likes to do it. He's you know if he makes money off of it, whatever, but he's not. I mean.

Anthony:

Yeah, at this point, honestly, they're just purely entertainment purposes. Like I like doing the shit. So I'm gonna keep on rapping to I can't wrap them what what is commendable? Honestly,

Jeff:

telling you man gets better with age bro.

Anthony:

As like as like a rapper or like a person. Probably both of you will be an oboe for you as a rapper but for women whoa human being. Oh my God, he is so good. I bitch found out that my president,

Jeff:

yo and Eminem has been inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,

Anthony:

which is a bunch of I knew,

Jeff:

I felt like we should have a whole segment fit because I knew you was gonna have reservations about it. But he now joins a very small list of rappers who've been inducted that include Jay Z. Hello, Cool J, the Notorious BIG Tupac, Grandmaster Flash and a curious five Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy and NWA. Tell us why you hate it.

Anthony:

So, you know, run that list down again of who's in there.

Jeff:

The only rappers in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, our Jay Z, LL Cool J being to paddle Grandmaster Flash, and his crew and DMC, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy. NWA is a lot of groups, mostly mostly group, more groups than single artists.

Anthony:

Correct. So you're trying to tell me that he should be in the Rock Roll Hall of Fame for his mentor. Right, right, right. And I know he's been there with NWA. I get that what there's no way I'm sure making an error before Dr. Dre. Yeah, that's blasphemy like, right? It's your mentor. I don't think he should be an informed Tribe Called Quest.

Jeff:

I mean, I need to find out what the criteria is like what who's voting for this shit and what are they looking for like album sales obviously. Okay, he's the most selling you know, that's the highest selling rapper of all time. Okay, cool. Is it influence is it you know, I mean, like, Was it their catalog? Like how come Karis one is not in this shit yet? It's literally coming on the show yet. Like Dougie fresh and Slick Rick on on this shit yet? How come caning on it a rock him?

Anthony:

See I'm looking at this list. And the people on this list are iconic. So they're basically calling him an icon which I've I've kind of found for why you need to you need to. I mean, because this Sylvia Robertson's an icon Jimmy IV is an icon. Judas Priest and icon Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis icons. Harry Belafonte, Carly Simon, the rhythmics Duran Duran, Pat Benatar iconic. It's like the classic going in like, and you're the rock person that goes in here. The fact that Jimmy IV goes in that class without Dr. Dre still.

Jeff:

Why Why isn't Russell Simmons in this?

Anthony:

Because the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's weird. It's super weird. And like I said, you're gonna phrase it as hate against Eminem. It's not hate against him. I'm saying that. It doesn't make sense like Jimmy's in there. And Dre is Rick Rubin is Rick Rubin. I think I think Rick was gonna want him earlier clap but that's what I'm saying. If Rick Rubin's in it.

Jeff:

Russell Simmons has to be in it. If Jimmy IVs and Dr. Dre, they go hand in hand. I'd say

Anthony:

I think Jimmy because he had like he worked with Springfield and other rock acts. But you know what it is though? It got to that but it's the Rock and Roll Hall

Jeff:

you know what it is and who is in it? So they figure right Dre is already in it as an NWO member so we're not going to put them in twice because that would make him the first person to be nominated twice or inducted twice

Anthony:

rarely these fellows don't apparently fellas don't watch wrestling that happens all the shit Yeah, Hogan gets in and who gets in razor gets in and who gets in vivo gets in it's

Jeff:

like three times but he's in there twice Briars in two or three times bras in that shit three times.

Anthony:

Exactly. At the Heart Foundation. Byron has

Jeff:

his tag team with Jim man I guess twice as hard foundation

Anthony:

yet. Right How like twice. Like it doesn't disagree.

Jeff:

They probably would hope they probably don't want the very first person to get inducted multiple times to be a rapper, let alone a black rapper. Because because the Rock and Roll Hall right now when Now we talked about it when they when they create the hip hop Hall of Fame in the Bronx, which is going to be a physical Hall of Fame entity for hip hop, then yeah, then we're gonna have all our people in

Anthony:

it. Even that's gonna be so that's gonna be wild.

Jeff:

They just gotta start they gotta they gotta start from the 70s You know I mean don't go don't do Wow shit. Like okay, we got to put Eminem first like no, you gotta go back to the founding fathers and the forefathers first you know I'm saying

Anthony:

there's gonna be a lot to do the end gonna be Well, what I want to know like once they do that who's going to be on like the the inductee board like

Jeff:

you figure you figure to probably be like Jay Z ease and you know, I'm saying

Anthony:

I'm not gonna want to do anything did you guys get to do it's gonna be having like, like hip hop media members like like Touray or Elliott Wilson like guys who've been in hip hop for a long time. But you can't have like rappers and like stuff like that. because everyone has their own personal biases, like if you get like a team of 15 guys that got gotta be like the Baseball Hall of Fame like they gotta reach 80% Vote some, like the majority, but the last

Jeff:

way you could put like a swing and sway in there. Yeah.

Anthony:

Right. But like hip hop personalities who have been in a long time beginning Well, not necessarily getting for a long time, that like they are a part of the culture, but they don't have any stake interest in it like it like, it's hard to have Jay Z going to be on like, a board where he's going to vote for himself, right? If he comes up like, yeah, what? Like, is Jay Z and I'm gonna argue this shit. But when it gets to certain people like mf doom Tec nine like, like big like big house should make it but didn't have a long enough career like people who can make those functional arguments and not get emotional about it. Like if some people are going to be no brainers but other is going to be kind of tricky. So we've got to say,

Jeff:

and that's why I wanted to have the discussion of the rap. Mount Rushmore because I saw people was talking about it online and some other blogs and some other websites was talking about it. And I guess the general consensus was that it was, you know, supposed to be big pocket J and NAS. You know, I'm saying that was like the majority that people were saying. And then you know, you had like the new cats from now saying, Oh, it should be you know, Jay Cole, Kendrick Drake. And like, Wayne, whoever the fuck, I don't even remember who the full person was, you know, I'm saying like that, but not at all. It's like their generation. Right. Okay. And I was like, I don't want to like who would you like I don't have a problem at being big pocket Jay and NAS. But these are people that we grew up with, you know, I'm saying so obviously people that grew up listening to hip hop in the 80s will probably have reservations about that. They might want to see ll up there Kane, Rakim KERS. You know? I mean, that might be a Mount Rushmore. That's why I think it's hard to do.

Anthony:

Big J Nice.

Jeff:

Big J NAS. So you're taking PAC out? Yes. It's hard to it's hard to take PAC out though, bro.

Anthony:

No, I think it is pretty.

Jeff:

Because now because now you're alienating a whole host of people you know, that saw him as a legend as an icon as an idol. You're erasing his body of work well, he meant to the culture as an activist you know, I'm saying as a personality,

Anthony:

but but but but you can if you're saying that you can arguably put Lithuania you can arguably put Scarface there like it's going to be your general biases in regards to them. Like Scarface should be on that list. The thing that always I always sucked about the Mount Rushmore thing that is only five his photo sorry, that aligns it's four sorry, it's only four which makes it a lot harder gotta be real subjective and select choices

Jeff:

like you have to do you have to like different errors or I propose that you do a Mount Rushmore for East Coast for every Coast like a West Coast has their Mount Rushmore east coast as the Midwest has, you know, I'm saying, right, that would be fair, like for example, like an East Coast Mount Rushmore would be a jay NAS LFO and Big

Anthony:

D not the New York one. Let's just say that. Or like the 80s

Jeff:

Last one, then you have like the DRE Snoop pack, maybe Ice Cube, that could be the West.

Anthony:

It's funny. It's so weird. He said maybe well, maybe

Jeff:

because you know, you gotta you got to ease ease at Worlds and

Anthony:

got ease you got to to shorts to e4. Like, guys from from up north in the Oakland area. You kind of leave enough to live so it's like it's yeah. Or if you have depth of what's out the South

Jeff:

is going to be Wayne. Ter is a little Christmas.

Anthony:

Wayne, yes. Scarface. Yes.

Jeff:

Scarface. Really self though.

Anthony:

I mean, I guess it's not been worth. I mean, you can't you can't get them or soften the edges man. So what damn so it wasn't Midwestern. Midwest is Kanye common?

Jeff:

Eminem. Is that Detroit? Is that Midwest? Yeah,

Anthony:

Eminem Detroit. You probably thought somebody like twist or something like that. It's not not a lot out of Chicago but it's kind of a common Eminem and that's where her fourth would be somebody who can barely you should say XYZ I don't know fuck off the top of my head. It has to be somebody major it wouldn't be Royce. As lyrical talent is different, but as the greatest MC in the Midwest, the top floor Tina and it's the whole thing when you're doing these things what are you basing it upon? Like is it upon their alert clerical ability like of course rose will be up there as a matter of fact we're going up lyrical ability I might have thrown lol and if we're talking about the East Coast and putting like Black Duck probably or even quality or even most deaf, so it's a lot of real like Reimer farmers lyrical guys all over the place so it's always about criteria you're talking about overall mean you probably slap pocket but for my listen property and lol because I'm saying that people talk about like pucks contribute like contribution to hip hop. But lol was like rapping and act and doing all kinds of everybody like trying to do now. Like he was kind of the forebear of all this. Yeah, I mean, Ice Cube did better. Sure. But come on. What are we doing?

Jeff:

Yeah, oh, no, that's just hard to do. Every generation is going to have their own On wrote Mount Rushmore, every region Yeah, I mean I'm up in a conversation is I mean

Anthony:

like say we've got a Twitter page and twitter spaces of anybody want to go out there and they want to ask and they have their own like the top floor. We happen to listen and I'm like I'm not trying to argue to shit or whatever like like if you have your for give me your phone just give me the reason and then we're gonna kind of go for

Jeff:

Yoda next versus battle was announced Cypress Hill versus onyx and I think that should is like, does it make sense? Zero Interest I'm not watching that.

Anthony:

You know what it is like? I like the a couple groups. Wait, no, a couple songs from outside of that. Like I don't know anything about

Jeff:

that shit is so uninteresting that they have it on the undercard of a boxing match. They tried to shoot before it's a it's a sir he Sergej Kovalev match. He's fighting somebody then does he still fight? Yeah, he's fighting. He's fighting some fucking dude named Tourville pool live. Then there's like two other matches. And then there's the Cypress Hill and onyx versus

Anthony:

Bert and when does this winter's coming off? This cliff fine. This

Jeff:

comes on on Triller may 14 For snick Saturday.

Anthony:

Oh, I have fam Come on. Come on. Come on. So if you've been telling me that the first megastructures seven I got to watch three fights that I'm not gonna be interested in for them to perform at 10 o'clock. And then like performance what five so

Jeff:

but I don't know if that's the main event. I'm thinking the boxing match is a main event. I'm thinking the vs battle is going to come on to undercard.

Anthony:

Fight before the main event. Let's bring out Cypress Hill and odd it's like what the fuck? No. They usually do it afterwards because he couldn't mean he had to do it afterwards because you guys set up a whole ring. Yeah. I had to perform and then we got set up a ring amount of rings gonna be set up then you guys can do it. Because I can't remember who did was it? That was a difficult one. It was somebody who had a boxing match on before them but I don't know the idea of these two actually don't intrigue me like what is it? What is the combination of groups besides Wu Tang because we're gonna keep having an argument that technically group is technically not a group what two groups would you actually want to see actually against each other?

Jeff:

You know, onyx versus Mobb Deep would have been I mean I don't know prodigies dead but have it could have came out there with somebody else to do prodigies versus and that would have been more appealing to on to that would have been more interesting than a three of on to you know versus New York group in the West Coast group.

Anthony:

I wouldn't did that I would flip out to their properties verse cook I don't want to my doing property cost like gas likes to come I think my versus like the things were like the two five column saying

Jeff:

give me give me the Brazil the boys versus the locks.

Anthony:

That will be good. I think my lack of time to doing this shit like JD has to be like a fifth full time to

Jeff:

like when anything is Jay still has mad songs in the bag that he hasn't even pulled out yet. He got his he got singles that he hasn't even used and none of the battles he's already done. You don't want to know him? I'm

Anthony:

talking to him every time he called me out here is jada jada jada J No, I'm sick of coming out here every time you got a battle here I come not you paying them. You let them come out here.

Jeff:

Shit But yo, let's take a quick break. When we come back I want to do I want to get into this ghetto word. I got a new get a word of the week and I want to get into this Antonio Brown talking shit about Colin Kaepernick. Yo,

Jeff:

Yo, let me get into this get a word get a word of the when I told you I heard this and I learned it from the young fellas in the youth and the youth movement in the Twitter chat groups that I'm in and the word is cap C A P and it basically means the word for lying. Your head cap you out here cap and basically another word for lying according to urban dictionary, it can be used like no cap or you can say stop cap and like no cap bruh I really like Becky, stop cap and brah for real ask her out.

Anthony:

You know I've heard that word 1000 times I haven't written to the user myself because I find to be stupid. It's like a dissolution of the English language like fam, the word line exists for review,

Jeff:

but that's too long. It has masked syllables and mad letters. You know these offices lazy as hell. They're not trying to write all that or they're not trying to pronounce these words. It got to the point where they don't even write cap now they just write like a bait. You know, when you write cabbage shows you like the little blue emoji a little picture a picture of a little baseball cap. Alright, so I had to ask one of these cats one day I keep saying I'm like, Yo, what the fuck is what is this cap shit. It was like, Oh, it means you bullshitting or it means you're lying or whatever, you know. I'm like I

Anthony:

but it's not even a syllable problem. I'm going to show you right now. Cap. Ly. Capping. lying.

Jeff:

You're right. Two syllables.

Anthony:

Same fucking tip. And yeah, they got to be cool for No, no, they

Jeff:

literally got the same amount of letters to.

Anthony:

Yes. Yep. No, no capping Caapi ing. ing and Alliance loi ing she see a look. And that's it. And the whole thing that didn't even use the word, it's put a hat there. I hate like, I don't mind conversations. I hate conversations with like emojis. Like when someone's like, I'm going to the store and they put like, like a chicken egg, a bag of groceries. Like just say going to the store. Like I'm going out to drink and they put like little champagne glass. Like I can read bro. Interpretation.

Jeff:

You know, this is the era we're in. Like

Anthony:

everyone needs visual representation of what's going on in their life. Like I get it. I can see it's fine. Okay, tap. Like it's cat. It's all cat. Um, like I said, I know that you have something that you wanted to bring up that you told me about earlier? Again, I'm not going to I did not read it. But I know that you have it. So I'm gonna leave it up to you. Okay, the

Jeff:

Antonio Brown shit. Yes. All right. So Antonio Brown decided to go on some I don't know if it was a podcast, some Chicago cigar talk and he says they don't feel bad about Colin Kaepernick not being able to play in the NFL because he taught unquote took the deal and says he was trash on the field and I'll play the audio I got the audio for you right here as a compensated

Unknown:

you fucking Nike he goes he goes because I want to get back into play man he was he was a koi did all that and took the money in and got the commercials we will see Kevin Nick asawa he I never seen him I saw I've never seen once all right so like don't go into bull trying to get back in Yeah, but he already took the money out as cat like bro You took the money to commercials. We don't see why side we don't see him and you don't do not like we cool but now we need to stand cabinet. He not even in front of her. You don't even have been in the trenches. Like we like Kevin, Nick and all but like we really own that. So as black people we need to get that clear. Because we have moments and nobody given us know nothing. You know, I'm saying so like, he took the handout. So you got to take the marrow

Jeff:

out He said, You took the handout, so you got to take the man route. I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on this shit. Because when I was on Twitter and I was, you know, seeing the discussions, it was I saw a lot of black people saying, you know, yeah, I agree with what Antonio Brown is saying. But on the flip side, I saw a lot of people saying like, Nah, fuck Antonio Brown, he's on drugs. He's talking shit. You know, I don't care what he said, You know, I'm saying like, nah. Like, what is Kaepernick was supposed to do you know what I'm saying? He got blackballed from the league that Nike came and gave him a deal. He took that deal. You know, the league, he sued the league and he got his money. Like, what is he supposed to do now? You know, I'm saying I feed his family. Whatever it is. I'm seeing both sides. I'm anxious to hear what your thoughts on the shit.

Anthony:

Okay. Kevin, Sam, is that this week? He did was I promise you. I'm promises living somewhere. I've never agreed with his diatribes. I thought that he was misogynistic. I thought that he was petty. I thought that he didn't bring much of anything in regards to value to people. Anything that I saw, I thought he was a guy with an opinion that if you're a misogynist person, you're probably going to agree with I GET IT guy dies. See a lot of people coming out of woodwork like kind of just like dancing on the grave which kind of irritated me it's, it's something for me personally. Like, I'm not necessarily a petty person. And like, no matter what I feel towards you, whatever it might be, I'm never going to dance in your grief. Like even throughout life, I really, really despise you the moment you're dead, it's gone with you, I'd have nothing else to say to do. There's no other comments or things that I want to say about you or whatever. Start dancing on this man grieves and kind of irritated and that's why I kind of loops around to this Antonio Brown thing in my mind. Again, I haven't heard anything about the Antonio Brown thing to just literally told me. So, this is how it goes. Kaepernick stood in Kaepernick kneeled. Now he kneeled. It cost him his job, because the physical talent was there, like say he was kneeling as a, you know, a quarterback in the NFL, once contract expired, no longer there. Like I said, there was a basically a, an adequate settlement. And regards to everything in regards to the league. He made his choice and made a decision. He made his note is a parallel thing with Nike, where no part of the sales from any of the cabinet merchandise was going to go towards, you know, social justice and so on, so forth. Again, people are entitled to their opinions. And people like to say things, even if don't fully understand it. This is one of those things that Antonio Brown, Antonio, pretty much fucked his way out to LA by acting in Oakland, California, listen to that, by accident, asked what the Raiders, you got pissed off and you shipped off your jersey and hopped off the field, and your last thing that you did, now, all of a sudden, you're a rapper. Now, obviously, you want to mingle with people. And even through all of that, I'm not going to judge the man. I'm judging the man on the word we, I really do dislike when certain people place themselves as the arbiters of Black Folk. And until like, No, we're not we're not with him. We're not in a way, everyone has their own individual opinion. Everybody has their own entitlements regardless of whatever they feel towards Kaepernick, you're saying what you feel about him? And ain't no we just say I just say I don't like him. I think he's watching. Don't say we, because I think if he does find his way back into the league, it's an enlightening empowering story. You overcame something, your ability to so that you can still do it, but for him to kind of come out as mouth like I'm not gonna call him like a drug addict. Nothing else like that. Like I just, I don't care much or for Antonio Brown because the things that he's done like said, he's, he's gonna try to get back into the NFL, even though his last thing that he did was literally disrespect the fuck I was on team instead of sitting in SAS on the sidelines, tripping all the shit off and running off the field. So for me to expect him to be the arbiter common sense to say certain things to me to take him as a person of common logic or rationale, especially since seemed like get his like experiment a couple of times playing football. Not really my thing. I think it's hurtful. Because this the point where I go back to wheat, it's hard for us when we have to pit one against the other. Like if you don't like him, then you don't like them put it that way. Don't put it as a snap like him. Like I said, you looking on that Twitter feed. Some people agree some people disagree, but everyone's entitled to an opinion but it's not a universal thing that we are all either for Kaepernick are all against cabinet just trying to make it that way and it makes no sense for you to do so. You just feel like you have the right to do so. You have the right seat at cabinets wash got the right to you that your watch to you're probably never gonna have an NFL job again. And now we'll see how it goes for you. Hopefully the best but, you know, just like you shouldn't dance as much But you shouldn't split negativity upon somebody they're trying to do better things with themselves. Whatever your feelings are towards them is what are your feelings are towards them. But Cabinet had his own life live. A B has his own. If need to mention me, go ahead, but if you want to just spew this negativity about what I'm capable of what not capable of, even though I sacrifice my career for the rest of everybody else, I don't see no other NFL players kneeling. I don't see the rest of y'all giving up on your contracts now. Give them the proper respect that it deserves. Leaving minded away. Going to buy the business but a be all good luck in all your endeavors in the future, man. Can't wait to hit a rap album.

Jeff:

You ain't listening to that shit.

Anthony:

Well, me I might, I might just do it as a joke. Like, let me see how bad you notice like seeing a bad movie. Like I noticed. It's gonna be terrible. Like how bad is this going to be like? Fuck, it's terrible. So, so trained when that train wasn't terrible. We're gonna go school of critic because y'all suck of waiting with water.

Jeff:

Now that movie was dope. Yeah, we can't spoil it. We can't spoil it. But so going back to this A B share. So just final question. So Antonio Brown, and your estimation does not speak for the black community

Anthony:

as a fucking movie not alright,

Jeff:

I'm fine with that.

Anthony:

There's, there's anything about Antonio Brown speak social justice. No, a man who taught him all his shit and hopped off the field and ran out and ran out of state and was basically in what like, we're in a world of Carmen Sandiego popping up games and I'm saying

Jeff:

I know if it was somebody else the respected and you know, honorable when somebody you know I'm saying even though I may be his words will have some type of merit, but not this guy who who's always going from scandal to scandal always getting suspended or fired or always causes some type of trouble.

Anthony:

Yeah, and I'm not saying that the judge of No, I'm just saying I'm on the fact that like, Yo, bro, like, like, like, you got to show me some like, you ain't gotta be like a saint. But I mean, I gotta see you involved out here and he's actual like, these things that are trying to uplift people of color before he will say anything about anyone of color. Sorry.

Jeff:

All right, but yo, Dave Chappelle got attacked on stage his last show.

Anthony:

Would you call it attacked or would you call

Jeff:

it solid form tacking tackle does that but apparently they do have a knife in his hand.

Anthony:

Yet apparently had like a replica gun that a knife comes out of. I hit him was gonna get out of here when

Jeff:

they stopped him out. Right. I read that Jamie Foxx was back there stopping him out and a bunch of others. You see the picture of the dude's face? Nah, he's he swollen

Anthony:

if you follow him, what was it was that part or not on on six chamber? And anyway like, it unfortunately. busts in my head like, like, like, like, Is he dead? What do you mean he's fucking dead? He shot him in the head. Yeah.

Jeff:

You can't hot shit. I can't be hopping on stage with a fake gun, bro. Like, he's lucky ain't fucking like kill his ass or shoot him with some with a fight with security bro. How do you go through the stands and jump on stage and tackle up somebody? How does that even happen, bro? What type of security they haven't metal in that building?

Anthony:

Not good. Not good security at all. As a matter of fact, I tend to have a little picture. Let me see if it pops up on your phone. Let me see that. That's the aftermath. And that's equity roll my man up on out of there. And I just kind of feel bad for him.

Jeff:

My thing is this though. Like I think this is all Will Smith's fault. No, okay, because he's created a world nine and the world has already been going to shift where you know, people can't say anything. And comedians can't say shit. But now he's made it for violence. Now you know what I mean? Now now, a comedian say some shit somebody gets offended. Now you're compelled to take physical action towards that offense. Now you're compelled to hop on the stage and smack somebody or tackle somebody worse. You know? I mean, because you were offended. I don't even know what Dave Chappelle said at the standup he was doing

Anthony:

it was some Netflix show called What was the show called? Netflix is a joke. Netflix is a joke. They do it every year, but it's the first thing we're headed to Hollywood bought and sold out like four so

Jeff:

I'm curious to find out what the fuck he said. You probably got to do was probably drunk or something or high. probably felt some type of way about whatever Chappelle was saying. He was I'm gonna go get I'm gonna do my Will Smith impersonation.

Anthony:

I don't I don't know what his reasoning was. And I'm not going to assume all know that. That happened. A dog shot him like they got him in the ambulance. Like his arms went the wrong way. He got this big ass not and that's it. It's everything's ridiculous about it. I think people should probably keep their hands to themselves, and I should probably just calm the fuck down and stop.

Jeff:

Right? But now the thing is Dave Chappelle was a legend. He's an icon. He's looked up to by guys like Chris Rock and Kevin Hart, who are looking at the picture now Damn, dude. SWOT is known as a slow his eyes a swimmer on a camera. Yeah, they did a number on

Anthony:

him. If you live in little hand, little black nails right, there you go. And his arm is probably broken too. From what I heard, it's kind of facing the wrong way, right?

Jeff:

Yeah, his arm is fucked up. Yeah.

Anthony:

Yep. Damn. Amen. play stupid games. You win stupid

Jeff:

bro. Dave Chappelle was an icon bro. He's a comedy legend. He's not he's not changing. He's already say he's not changing. You know, I'm saying his act who he is when he talks about he gonna talk about whatever the fuck he wants. You can't cancel him. But it's still fought. Right? But But not every comedian is going to be brave enough if that's even the word I should use to go up on stage and say whatever they want. You know what I'm saying? There's gonna be comedians that are going to think twice about making a joke. Especially white comedians. Now. You know, I'm saying if you're a white comedian, you know, it's already a slippery slope of what you can say you gotta you know, you can't talk about certain races. You can't do certain show. You can't say now they're gonna really double guest themselves and second guests and triple guests. And you know, can I should I say this black jokes? Should I say this Asian joke. Like, I'm just gonna keep it to white joke because white people ain't really gonna say do shit to me. Like, you know, I

Anthony:

mean, why people gonna go ahead and tell him jokes, man. I fact, I think you should embolden them more to tell them jokes, because you ain't going to jail. I'm gonna come I'm gonna say can you shoot them? Trust me, you can go into prison. It's fine. It's fine. Just to all wild near jokes. You want to it's not gonna make no difference at all. Could you like I said this this country is emboldened people like white people to kind of wild hog out like we can look at that, like our elected officials. So I'm not expecting comedians like awesome. Like, tamper down like now I want you guys to step it up. Because you guys don't go to prison. So somebody jump up, didn't you like you shoot them in the face for a call and keep on going? So you're gonna get out of jail just sitting there like, the guys sitting on the private property shot in the face. Okay, soft. makes life easy for everybody. So, now they shouldn't just You're proud about it. If you're a comedian, you comedian. And the thing about being a comedian that you have to be fearless if you ain't got no fear. To write the jokes you write tell the ones you want to tell? And if they funny, they'll laugh if they don't, they'll vote and unchanged. You see, and like I said, David got tackled he kept the choke point like this. How did he stop it? Oh my god. Oh my god. I gotta tackle. Nope. Well, Chris Rock came over to you that was that Will Smith. Everybody laugh jadestone this i What is that? What is she?

Jeff:

You're speaking of new albums. Also that came out this week. New Blackstar album came out. And I heard as good. I wouldn't know because it's only available on luminary app, which I don't have. Because I'm not trying to pay for that shit. I'm already paying for enough apps. $33 is what it is three hours a month.

Anthony:

Isn't a podcast like it's a podcasting app? Yeah, it was like he hosted hosted it like it's a paid site. So before we get to go into it, like that'd be fine. She was only $3 Oh, when I got it. Yeah.

Jeff:

And I think I enjoy and is it owned by most Def and Talib the album the app? I'm pretty sure that it's their app, isn't it? No, it's not because luminary is really really really really big. You can pull it up right here it must have money though. They just people exclusively to have the rights to the albums.

Anthony:

No, but the whole thing is that they're actually taken a very different task of it. So what the saying is that you know, how can you create that simply for an hour that no one ever give a fuck about it never fully came up with. With them it's more like if you want it you can you can come in no pay for luminaries and come listen to the album and get it here go that way so it was kind of controlling their own thing. We're not worried about going through like in labels and something else like that they're trying to change the conversation about you know ownership and music and releases because they all those guys complain about like how they have all these streaming services, you're not gonna record sales anymore. And no streaming service or paying like pennies on the dollar and so on so forth. This is a way to like you know, we control our own thing. We get x amount of sales we already know it's going to totally up to x and we'll be good so I had to do it. I mean, if you ever get a chance to and if you do you out of course you let me know your chance Listen to Black Friday. I think you'd like

Jeff:

so you listen to it already. I might get it done. I might I'm downloading the app as we speak. Shit one day we might even have to put our podcasts on this shit. You imagine a culture podcast being exclusively on luminary

Anthony:

sure I want to go into money at tax that'd be filled supportive. I'll do it but we're you're paying you're paying for this. We have a live caller on line two what's up? We're gonna have that'd be a whole thing. We're gonna have a whole podcast we talked about shit the next podcast used to be a hit record. And like the third one just us like just taking calls from people like you could say whatever you want. Like Fuck yo, thank you for calling. Click next call.

Jeff:

Michael Rapaport got his podcast on them. I grabbed before finish. Oh, he does.

Anthony:

I think it's like that collect the midnight midnight mile at midnight something I'm

Jeff:

downloading this shit as we speak.

Anthony:

Now, like I said, I'd like to you gainfully employed man Go ahead and get whatever you want and go into by the way,

Jeff:
