Jeff:

peace peace peace peace peace thank you for tuning in to another episode of the kosher This is episode 69. But much to my dismay, I could not find a sex expert or a porn star or a stripper so we will not be discussing sex today. Sorry,

Anthony:

Jeff:

But we do have Mikey she today who decided to come out of hiding? No idea we're looking guy has been what's up man Where you been? Bro?

Yeah, that's what so that's what I have my little name as on our on our, on our call here. And much like a professor, I think I'm better at talking about sex than I am at sex. Probably. So

Jeff:

I mean, sure, we can talk a little bit about sex if you guys want. I mean, you heard my podcast episode last year. Last week, right my misadventures in the spot.

Anthony:

I will just, I mean, any anybody, anytime I go to the gym a lot. And it's like, every time that I'm in the gym, it's shocking. It's like, you know, when there's 100 dicks around you. It doesn't matter how many dicks you've seen in your life or whatever. When there's 100 Naked dicks around you. It's a shocking experience.

Jeff:

I've never I've never seen nudity at the gym, bro.

Anthony:

What does that mean?

Jeff:

I don't know. I've never seen nudity at the gym, I guess especially now since the pandemic you know for a while they had the gyms had the showers closed. You know, they didn't want people going in. Oh,

Anthony:

you know and but like people don't change around each other at your gym. Yeah, but I've

Jeff:

never seen like a fully nude guy. It'd be in their boxers or their underwears or whatever.

Anthony:

How do they get out or they get from their to their to their gym?

Jeff:

I've never seen okayness at a gym, bro. They do it. I've never seen a penis at the gym. I'm sorry.

Anthony:

What about like, what about high school like sports or whatever? No, like swim class.

Jeff:

ood last week at the spa was the first time I saw guys actively and openly just walking around nude, bro. Really? Yeah. That's amazing. I wasn't maybe I wasn't maybe in all those other scenarios that you pointed out. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention. I wasn't looking. But this time, it just wasn't unavoidable. Like, the purpose of this show was reduced to walk around nude, and get acquainted with each other guys,

Anthony:

especially coming out of COVID where we all weren't even allowed to talk to each other. Now it's like we're fully back into you're talking to me and your dick is hanging now. Like feels. It's like it's an extra. But yo, that's funny. Let me give a shout out says more about me maybe I've just maybe I put more times in my life or I put myself in penis positions I guess. Me too. Yeah,

Jeff:

let me give a shout out to our patrons we actually have a new Patreon and and he goes by the name of Sebastian Santana. So shout out to him. Solid name hopefully we won't let him die. Yeah sound like he got good credit,

Anthony:

Anthony:

I always have to miniguns cameras Cameron Giles. Jim Jones real name? Yeah. Jim Jones real name is Jim

Anthony:

Maybe he figured let me get a Spanish name in there to appease you know, my Hispanic fan base. I don't know.

Anthony:

Oh, maybe. So maybe it's his dad's last name was Santana. I don't know. Let's move forward. It's kind of Yeah, I just like the Jim Jones. I thought that he adopted that name because of Jim Jones, the cult leader. I like that it's his name. And he just like I'm rolling with it.

Jeff:

More he probably you

Anthony:

know, I'm trying to do a Jim Jones movie with Leonardo DiCaprio playing Jim Jones. The the Reverend guy not the rapper. Oh, right. Yeah, come on. Fucking Leonardo DiCaprio playing Jim Jones.

Jeff:

comes out. With blackface.

Anthony:

They're like Ron Jim Jones low. balling like no, it's I don't think Jim Jones

Jeff:

is an act. Like months he'll be like a ball balling balling him. Boom. You're just working on accent. Oh, Doug enough.

Anthony:

I know. I know Jim Jones like it like a reverend some shit. Yeah, reverend. I mean, he doesn't look I don't know, he looks like maybe he's like, Filipino or something. But he doesn't I mean it doesn't look. I don't know. I mean, this is obviously just another another version of white dude playing a non white dude but I don't know they kind of look like I could see it working and Leonardo DiCaprio has kind of a cult cult leader vibe to him. I'm just saying like I'm this story is always interesting because how the fuck do you want to commit mass suicide? Hey, Jesus in the world, man. I'm sorry, dude. And he had what was it? 5000 people come on down. I think I mean, that shouldn't always be there. But I think like, like 900 people died. I'm like that. Was it only 900 He said only? I thought it was like five. By No, no, no, you're like, No, like, I thought it'd be higher like, I don't know. Oh, yeah, you're right. No 9918 304 kids. I mean, dude, I don't know about you guys, but I'm obsessed with cults. Like I watch all the cult documentaries. I'm totally trying to be a cult leader.

Jeff:

Did you watch the one where was that one dude, I forgot. It's like on HBO max or something. And he had like all these women in the court with them. And he was branding them and shooting

Anthony:

though Yeah, the next year. Yeah, that's

Jeff:

just crazy, bro. That one and then the other one with with the actual she love religious Scientology one I mean to me that's a call as well

Anthony:

right? Oh, for sure. I mean, the next thing why wouldn't you like sexy he just a regular fucking do like but he

Unknown:

was falling autumn

Anthony:

chicks. Oh, yeah. And it was but is that power thing right? See I see I see I told it's gonna be a sex episode one way or the other. Oh yeah.

Jeff:

I try to like try to get it was it was too short of notice. I was trying to get some people you know, man. Some second experts or something. But

Anthony:

I know that's I should have I've got some people in my world but it's Yeah, but we're all experts. Come on, man. We're in it all Oh, yes.

Jeff:

Or, I guess a brother or sister podcast grandpa and chill. He was on me and Amazon the latest episode. You could check that out. I'll leave the link in the show notes. Grandpa and chill check them out. Yo, real quick. The next verses battle at three six mafia reversal is no bones. Doug. How many December 2? No, no, no. Three football dunks?

Anthony:

Everywhere. Okay, here's a way deeper catalog who does? Right? Botox?

Jeff:

I think so.

Anthony:

Yeah. Because the thing that gives me six an edge because like I said they can they can put our everything Juicy J ever produced. Oh, that's true. I don't ever think about that. And that's what we talked about. I have to have it. What do you think about that part of things? I think it's a little fucked up.

Jeff:

They have to have rules, man. They have to have certain rules. Like for example, if you go against Destiny's Child, you got to tell them like look, you can't play Beyonce shit. Because it's not fair. You know, I'm saying like, if you have a soloist on the group, like if they like if you go against and sing You gotta let them know like yeah, you can't play the Justin Timberlake shit it's just basically the group just strictly the group's because otherwise it wouldn't be fair.

Anthony:

The only problem with that you're not getting Justin Timberlake or Beyonce to do that shit. Fucking different. Obviously.

Jeff:

You just gonna get the crowd like it's

Anthony:

like, right but you know, people have talked about Whoo, you know, it's like so how do they even how would they even do that? But if they're gonna play what individual members albums are everything is is produced, you know, I think it's just it's an impossibility.

Jeff:

But Ray Quan already did one and MEF already did a vs so they could just do like, you know, they have enough in the catalogue that they could just strictly do Wu Tang Shit shit that they was all in you know? I mean, they could do the whole 36 chambers album. You know I'm saying

Anthony:

but that's the thing like they come up and do their first of the month shit and nothing goes to man's and make a dance. Like, I'm sorry, I'm taking

Jeff:

it but then they got they got shit with with Eazy E. You know, man, they got the crossroads.

Anthony:

To There you go. I mean, I love that album for a month and thuggish ruggish bone. And it's like, you got to get the other shit on it like you got that that first of the month. What else? We can write songs like the one that they were on with Biggie we are not

Jeff:

burgers. Yep. But we are against those StuGs remember that we're getting a racist

Anthony:

one that was um oh god, what's her name that Tupac hated so much. You know the woman that came out against feed blue fucker? Oh, yeah. To Laura's Tucker use a motherfucker.

Jeff:

But Eminem said

Anthony:

Oh, no, it is a dude. It sounds like a preacher at the beginning. Yeah, it does sound to preach. I go back and revisit it. I find I like Jesse

Jeff:

Jackson are one of them cats.

Anthony:

That'd be weird. They got bigger fish to fry them go fuck about rap? No, no, who did that? I remember. Let's see do a soccer with someone. They put like all the rap CDs on the ground and yeah, it was totally was great. And I mean, that's I mean, that inspired so many people to buy more shit turn it over Shut up. Like when they put the parental advisory on CDs, that's when I was like just about the age where I was making like had a job and was making my own money and could buy CDs. And I only would buy CDs if they had the parental advisory made or motivation for me to get it.

Jeff:

I guarantee you that I guarantee you that death row sales went up after the see Delores Tucker shit. Oh guarantee

Anthony:

100% Oh, what's what's on this album?

Jeff:

Right? Oh, yeah, it is we got to listen now.

Anthony:

Oh my god, you can just I was just looking up three six mafia and the first person that came up was Paul Wall like he came up with their like, associated act. I totally forgot about that.

Jeff:

Dude, he was carrying a bad fucking moron.

Anthony:

What a stupid idiot.

Jeff:

Hey, that's how he got on. But yo music Lupe Lupe Lupe. On the works. According to sources Lupe his new album is completed and it's tentatively titled drill music in Zion. Craig Bower mix the album and says it's the Best Rap Album he's ever mixed. Mind you. He's also he's mixed counties early work, including late registration and graduation. He also did FNL and the cool so I'm excited about this Lupe album cuz I am a Lupe Fiasco fan.

Anthony:

Me too. It's been a while since his last album.

Jeff:

Yeah. Last thing I heard from him was when he was going back and forth with Royce number on YouTube and some songs and videos and shit. Yeah, absolutely annihilated voice to me.

Anthony:

Yeah. What? Yeah, I mean, he's obviously he's a better lyricist. It died quick, because like rap beef don't go on, like rap beef used to do because we kind of grew up because back then we had rap beef, somebody had to die. So it's like it's real short term now. Like they both alive number Schritten. Kanye went to Drake and Kanye, whatever for a minute. Drinking, pushing it out for a minute. But it stopped at a particular point because back then when it kind of seemed like it was going to happen. So now it's like, I would be a little bit in this, whatever, which is good. It's exciting. And it keeps things going in the in the moment but no one's gonna buy gotta dive it you know? So good.

Jeff:

Speaking of Kanye, let me ask you this. Before I get into the Kanye story. Let me ask yourself, man, how many people call you and? Or am I the only one that calls you in? Because I know

Anthony:

I'm your sister does. I'm hearing there.

Jeff:

Let's just make believe I'm the only person that calls you and right let's say you blow up one day you make a big and you just beat you're just known as the artist known as an and they be like a like yo, my boy Jeff gave me that name or my entitled to a cash lump sum by you.

Anthony:

You want to if you get the secret treatment? Absolutely not. Because you might get a free track here and there. You might you might get might get put on you might get a feature. But what I'm getting at

Jeff:

me doesn't know is that Kanye West is giving beanie Segal $50 million and 5% Yeezy stock because he's crediting him for coming up with the name Yeezy. And or yay, loose now his name he's, you know, he's legally changed the name to yay. And he said Bini secret was the first person to call him

Anthony:

and call him Gnosis. Corral. So he's given him $50 million

Jeff:

and a stake in the Yeezy brand.

Anthony:

I think being he could probably use that at this point. So he's having

Jeff:

loyalty. That's loyalty for your ads. Not only that, I mean, I guess it helps when you have to just throw away like that. Like, hey, you gave me an idea. I mean,

Anthony:

nobody. Nobody ever called him EA. Like his name is Kanye. That seems like such a like an obvious nickname. That seems amazing that he would have come up with that

Jeff:

he said in the first was beanie man.

Anthony:

Okay, this this is something else that we don't know about that beanie. Beanie Seagull was going to be suing him about it that he was going to make public and he's like, Oh, no, actually, I'm just gonna give you $50 million just because you're my homie or that or

Jeff:

he was gonna come out and write a book or tell all and talk about all the bodies and all the cases he you know, he got in defense of Jay and Kanye type of shit. You know, I'm saying like, you want me to talk about this shit or not? I'm gonna talk about these two dudes I killed defending you. Like I just shut the fuck out. Let me take this money.

Anthony:

I'm not believing none to see some time Pittsburgh this man has had known mental health issues. He's you brought him on the show where he was high and drunk like none and then like I'd given him shit mouse high and dry. Like none of that. Until I see some name was some signatures on some paperwork. I'm trying to hear none of this shit. Like I don't remember

Jeff:

saying.

Anthony:

Did he say that? Did he say it on the on drink champs?

Jeff:

I don't remember saying that. That segantini gave him the name yet? No, but Kanye did say on drink chain. Okay, he credits beanie Segal for giving them the name. But it just now coming out that supposedly you know he's given him $50 million.

Anthony:

Wow. He credits him. I'm going to pay him. I could I could. I could tell I'm gonna smoke crack tomorrow. It'll mean I'm going to do it.

Jeff:

I don't want to do paperwork. I need to see that shit and right and like you said,

Anthony:

I just like the idea that he thinks that the You know, it's it's not like his name or the nickname is the intellectual property like it's it's not like he's making money off of that particular part of his personality. He's making money off what he creates. And then when I asked him if he's licensing stuff, but you know how many nicknames Have you given people and I'm not like, oh yeah if you ever if someone else uses that I need to get a cut.

Jeff:

And I've heard all the time like giving guys credit for like being in the studio, like you're in the studio recording and I give you a line or give you a small idea. They'll give them credit and they'll give them you know, their put their name on there as a writer or whatever. But I've never heard nobody given nobody $50 million for giving them a nickname like shit again. He has the money to do that. So it's whatever.

Anthony:

Yeah, man, but But you do weird shit to

Unknown:

them. Yeah.

Anthony:

What am I doing? Like do like like did the fucking parameter store of like, you ever explained to him how you have a friend who you really call black guy?

Jeff:

I don't call him that. So you got me fucked up. I don't call him that. I call him black. I don't call him that person who gave him that Nick. New call?

Anthony:

Better is my shit. Where's my mute? You will see some I mean mute. Dude. I was gonna say Jerry didn't really improve your lie on that.

Jeff:

I'm not It's not a lie. I'll say it on the air. The guy's name is Oh, no, I meant like a golf like, okay, my other friend. Leto nicknamed him like 20 years nicknamed him the black guy because he was at the time the only black person we knew he calls him the black guy to this day he calls him the black guy I find it to be racist, so I've never called him that I call him black. Whenever you're black. I always call him black. I don't call him the black guy especially not in public. That's just sounds racist as fuk nobody calls him Jose I don't call him by his name but I definitely call him black like yo black whatever black I don't know what

Anthony:

that bullshit but to call the black guy he said black guy when I call you black? Is that good enough? The fuck? Right? It's like come on. I'm not gonna call you Kanye. Mokoia Black Rock, Black. Black My name Jose, a black rapper the whole thing is fucking nickname. That name is Jose Medina. Nick is called Jose no one no one

Jeff:

else yet but um, but they put out that like, I call him some racist black guy. Should I call him black?

Anthony:

Look, look, I understand if you want to run for office and cover your own ass I respect that you got coming from the black guy coming from black guy. I would never be

Jeff:

able to run for office. They would just have to listen to this shit.

Anthony:

Yes, you had officials who have murdered stole rape. All kinds of crimes. That's true. This light for you. Shit. You say? We had a whole president saying whatever the fuck you want to do in the game for years to try to get them out of the race. They couldn't do it. He was

Jeff:

about to put in all types of shit. Exactly. This America.

Anthony:

Right back to sex. Yeah, that was Yeah,

Jeff:

except I don't have I don't have that

Anthony:

milk money. Doesn't even matter. You don't got that kind of money. Brooke.

Jeff:

Hey,

Anthony:

what are the people that have people that have gotten into the Senate lately in the wild Shatter Me used to you know, use be able to use the word like on their unelectable. That's not even a thing anymore. It doesn't matter what you've done in the past. And you can work your way up you can get it doesn't matter if you have money or not. If you have a loud enough voice and enough followers, you're good. Wow, part of that you could have a white guy running for office and like, Man, I just don't understand these niggers. And someone's like, you know what he's telling it like it is like

Jeff:

he's just saying, God heard a lot about Trump. I love his honesty. I'd rather you know, I heard black people telling me to shit like, I know he's a racist, but racist to my face. So I respect them. I'm like, what Get the fuck out of here.

Anthony:

See, I think that's what you're missing understanding about black people. Like there's two types of racism there's northern racism there southern northern racism is a sort of racism where it's kind of like it's really like an implicit bias and over things and actions and mannerisms subvert like a lot of microaggressions and shit like that. So the racism is more like you keep your black hairs off my property and they're really clear about that you kind of know where you stand like like you know not to go to that person's house like there's no confusion like in the north you might know someone might be racist but it still might be friendly to your face and things like that. I also

Jeff:

think the laws down the open gun laws in the south also have something to do with that. Like I'm staying off that man property because he got to shoot my when he comes to the door with a shotgun and ratchet But this ain't your town like you're right Right? Correct.

Anthony:

I'm just move on down the road. My new holes right there man just come out thank you for time to complete everything so you see when when to stop and see what numbers are pulling up out and like oh, yeah, I see it I get it. I'm saying Wait, I feel that way. It's wild. This is a there's a I don't know if you guys have watched the show we're here. It's a three of the Queen's from from RuPaul drag race. And the idea of it is that they go and they go to like wild city so they'll go to like these tiny ass small southern towns where there's like three out gay people or something or they'll go they went to Selma and one of the last steps And then they like pick three people that are either gay or trans or like want to try drag, and some of them are straight on but they want to try dragging them they put on a big drag show at the end. And it's a fucking a it's a great show because it's like funny and touching and all those things, but just to see the boy, I mean, it's to go down there two of them are people of color Bob the drag queen from New York City, and then they're like, they go down there and the people that they encounter, it's like, I would be scared as fuck to go to these like tiny little towns like, you know, 500 people and like everybody's got a confederate flag and a shotgun in their truck. And you know, they're down there just, you know, talking to people and putting on a drag show. I'd be like, I would be terrified.

Jeff:

Mikey tryhard is how to make this episode about sec.

Mikey:

Chirp.

Anthony:

Let's talk about sex, baby. Let's talk about you and me. Let's talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be a bad thing. Let's talk about Yeah.

Jeff:

Should we use that song on this episode?

Anthony:

Oh, yeah. You don't talk about sex? No, we're gonna use that song and we're not gonna say anything about it. Like about sex? Maybe. shit like this.

Jeff:

We name it we named episode let's talk about sex. Yes. I might just name it not but so 69 It's not about sex.

Anthony:

I till I saw you put that in the in the link. I like that. It's fun to do that. Like oh, no, it is about sex events versus Yeah, we're not we're being honest. There was so many more songs of I know like we've got WAPP and stuff like that but like there were so many such like sex songs in the 90s like Color Me badd all the ones that were like directly just like talking about cocktails, a lot of TLC songs. I feel like it's less so less of that now

Jeff:

if you think about it, and always brings up the Whitney Houston song when she talks about being a side chick, but when you play it right now but when you listen

Anthony:

to a lot of songs that he got it you got to when you listen

Jeff:

to other lyrics from like TLC, so creep, yeah, you know, I mean, they talk about they listen to the lyrics Oh, but they're open about that about adultery they're talking about fornication they talk about all kinds of wild shit like sneak out your house no matter if your wife saying you know, just go behind the back and let's meet up and do this.

Anthony:

Oh, yeah, I mean there's so many of those like great like, you know, proud to be a side chick songs. I love that

Jeff:

and we heal and we overhear talking about the shit our kids are listening to now like what the fuck?

Anthony:

A mic you're receiving all my love for you? Yeah, he has a lyric you wanna listen to the shit out of it? But I don't sure if I caught that mic mic. I will be quiet like 45 seconds just listen. Let me play this beautiful beginning flow feeling so good. Listen to the words Jimmy Jam Terry Lewis right here

Jeff:

she's a whole side chick with

Anthony:

the next verse, because I heard a song to me it's a word. It's not very easy living this life alone. My friends tried to tell me find a man of your own. But each time I try I break down and cry. God rather be home feeling blue then because I'm saving all my love for you. Free decides that song of all time. Love the Holy Family as they need you there. I said oh, yeah, that's that's a stinger dude. Look at

Jeff:

that make Whitney lose some points though. Like do you

Anthony:

know she's a true speaker?

Jeff:

And he

Anthony:

said her grandma she said I don't care if you got a family. I don't care my friend is fuck. I love him. Even if you got a whole family you got to go home. I love that song.

Jeff:

Come back to me.

Anthony:

People think that song and they'd be intuitive like could they only really sing like the saving on my love for you? I'm like, listen to that song. Like I mean I definitely haven't I yeah, I think I just kind of focused on the chorus Yeah, yeah. Fucking like god

Jeff:

damn Whitney. Good for you. And as she goes and Mary Bobby I'm gonna do I'm gonna choose to remember her as the girl that was singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. That's how I choose to remember Whitney. Because today that's best for you. Oh time

Anthony:

can I ask can actually two gentlemen a question please. Are you do you ever sit back and think like just some random shit and random Dan like right and just think like oh my god I'm so glad I married you like see all other function that goes on in the world and you're like

Jeff:

god I'm just glad I was worried about that my wife my wife Ooh that

Anthony:

see oh yeah 100% Appreciate your wives people don't end up like Whitney Whitney or hitting aside waiting for this man to come to her friends thinks you fucking clown or whatever else like that if you got somebody should appreciate them just make sure the happy man fuck

Jeff:

yeah and then when he does know when he does come over he gets you hooked on crack right

Anthony:

I just stopped thinking I start getting high I'm like you gotta make better choices here. I don't know tell you but and then just the amount like during COVID The one stint when things start to lock down the amount of our friends that were already like not doing so well in their relationships and then they had to be locked in a fucking house with that person and tear each other's faces off and they either went kind of half of our friends went either they got better relationship got better or the other half have kind of like went way south and pressure tested things but I when COVID started I was like shit I don't I'm so glad I married you I don't want to be with anybody but you like oh, it's me and Jeff earliest episodes we're talking about how COVID either make or break. Oh ever thought about divorces broke because you don't know where to go because you guys don't have those in your world like COVID vs Yeah, yes yeah to several Mm hmm. Before we got a couple should be COVID divorces got some COVID like should break ups but

Jeff:

relationships relationship Yeah. Before we go on a break let me do our ghetto word of the ghetto Word of the Week. I think like this one. And the word is a Lizzie GL Izzy which according to urban dictionary has multiple meanings Blizzy could be short for a Glock are also used for a hot dog. Or a weenie don't make me pull out my Lizzy.

Anthony:

Either way you get fucked so if you want to use it in the sentence say like Geoffrey went to a spot when we saw a bunch of goodies got so many glasses.

Jeff:

I would have been walking around with my glitzy tucked. But she

Anthony:

Jeff:

you Yo Mike I know you don't fuck with sports but we were named on the top 20 In the sports category for good pods.

Anthony:

I heard that Yeah, so it's tight was I know

Jeff:

we're gonna have to mention get to talk about sports just not a lot. We like three minutes. We may have elite sports at least once an episode.

Anthony:

Did you submit it to them or anything or this wasn't something you were involved in like it just you just popped up on

Jeff:

like our podcast is on their platform. But you know, my I have this different subcategories. We're society culture. Yeah. And then subcategories are sports and music. Right. Okay,

Anthony:

that's rad, though.

Jeff:

But my mandatory sports segment this week is Steph Curry, surpassing Ray Allen on the all time Three point list. Really? Yeah, he just passed your store. He just fucking it's crazy because and I'll be telling people that like the game has changed like everybody just shoots threes now, you know Ray Allen was shooting maybe five or six threes a game now

Anthony:

No Don't say that don't

Jeff:

mean it has changed. Curry's averaging 12 Three point attempts a game. That's crazy. That's unheard of back in the day. Nobody was shooting that many threes. Yet don't

Anthony:

say that though, because He's unique. He's

Jeff:

different than the best shooter of all time already. Right?

Anthony:

It's like he takes a lot of them because he makes a lot of them like he's different. Like a lot of do take a bunch of threes. But now like when Steph shoots and he gets high like he starts knocking ambitious down it's dimauro

Jeff:

But nobody shooting 12 A game like he does but he's shooting 12 Even if he makes half of those that six three pointers a game that's more than anybody that grew grew up watching Ray Allen Reggie Miller, Steve Kerr was known as a three point specialist and he was only shooting two or three of them shoots a game. Is that

Anthony:

right? That's what I was gonna say is I you know, I kind of stopped watching basketball and I don't know 2000 or whatever. But I just I don't think of like, I will say I don't think I I don't know if I thought of Ray Allen as a three point shooter like that that would that he would be the number one of all time was he a power forward.

Jeff:

shooting guard. He was like a shooting guard sugar, but I think it was on the list for a long time. It was like number two, number three, I think he's now he's like three or four now. But he nobody remembers Jason Kidd for being a three point shooter. He's in the top five.

Anthony:

Yeah, but that's just longevity. Right? Like, let's, let's say you could bench 300 pounds 30 times, right? Let's say you could be 300 pounds 30 times easily, easily. Like no sweat. I got that. Would you actually like it? Like let's say if there were other people around you? Would you just bench it 12 times just to not be just to be less impressive. Or to bench 3030 times every time. Hmm, what I mean is like Steph does I'm going to take a lot of these because I'm going to make a lot of these in the shot team while they seem a little crazy but like it's not the fact he's taking them is that his game really change the dimension of the floor like I got a guard to 35 feet out. Like it's a full 12 feet from the three point line in you got to defend but with Steph you got to stretch it almost like the half court it changes the way the basketball is played. Other guys can't do that. What pretty much only him. Him maybe KD Dane. Not even clay because clay does not just pull it up there for shits and giggles But really those three guys.

Jeff:

And you know when scary though, for what Steph was scary. He's only played like 10 seasons, bro. He got drafted and and I remember he missed the season because of the injury ACL. So he's really only played like 1011 seasons yo.

Anthony:

Mm hmm. And what and what he he surpassed reality in the amount of

Jeff:

like having that he's made Yes. Reality played like 20 years or some shit. Right? Yeah. And like that, that's just attrition and half the time already curry past them. That's crazy. He's literally already the best shooter of all time.

Anthony:

How much? How much is the like, the choice to shoot a three? How much? Is it the choice of that individual player? And how much is it like the coaching staff is like, I'm gonna you know, I want you to go out and just anytime you get a chance to shoot a three, like how much of it is like the actual the player's decision versus kind of like a strategic decision a

Jeff:

little bit of both, because if you can shoot it, you're going to shoot any chance you can, right but now the game. That's why I said that the game is different now because they're encouraging it more now, the coaches encourage you, you know, to shoot more, and they call more plays for threes. Like if you watch a game, everybody's standing behind the three point line except for like the big man, he's down low. And the plays call for pass the ball around until you find an open guy for three. That's what the best coach is called. Now, that wasn't the case. Back in the day. The back in the day was the point guard ran it down and he gave it to the big man he gave it to Shaq, he gave it to Patrick Ewing. He gave it to a lot to David Robinson now, you know, I mean, and he tried to create if he couldn't if they double team and then you pass it back out to somebody. Nobody was shooting the astronomical amount of threes that are shooting now.

Anthony:

Yeah, it feels and it feels like basketballs become more of a small small players game. Like it's not as much about like the biggest do that we can find. It seems like there's a lot more like strategic quick, you know, point guards and people that are kind of being given it seems like people are smaller like the players are smaller. Is that true?

Jeff:

It's a small ball game now like traditional centers like all the guys that just mentioned right wouldn't have any place in today's young to come in Mutambara Yeah, they would have no place in today's game because you have to be able to shoot through now you have to be outside shooting.

Anthony:

And we've we've already gotten a little too far away from sex in this episode. So I'm gonna bring it back to Dick's when I was probably about 1010 years old something like that. I was walking through the Cherry Creek mall in Denver and I was looking to my side and I ran headfirst or face first into the can be moved Tombos Dick Get the fuck out of here. Yes. And he was like Sorry little man did he walk past me but I basically ran into his penis finger and you're like no no no, no no no no no different finger but oh my goodness shut off my head man fuck away from me. That was right around the time when he was doing the Jhumpa Mutombo meal deal with McDonald's or Burger King or whatever it was. I fucking love that.

Jeff:

I bring it back to hip hop man.

Mikey:

Segway got

Jeff:

off track. Would you guys consider 50 cents to be in the top 10 rappers in New York ever? No. Oh, really? No, because he reacted somebody recently said that he's not a top 10 Best New York artists. He was flabbergasted that somebody told him that they don't think he's a top 10 best artists from New York. And then he said six shippers he went on to say they said I'm not in the top 10 out of New York artists laughing emoji I'm nobody's favorite. I'm a nightmare for these fools when I focus he wrote as his caption I think he's easily in the top I mean not ahead of him I would put it obviously NAS Jay Z DMX. You know, maybe a maybe a Big Pun and maybe a rock him or

Anthony:

piggy five Biggie rock kicks. Kara.

Jeff:

Jada kiss fabulous.

Anthony:

910 Yeah, keep going by fitting Yeah, I

Unknown:

guess you're right shit.

Anthony:

I mean, i i When you know what do we mean best? Like this has sold the most or is the best lyricist. He's not a good lyric. He's he makes noise he makes like fun party songs or whatever. I don't I don't think much of it. Maybe he

Jeff:

would go on a different list. Maybe his list would be most successful rappers from New York. He would definitely be on that list.

Anthony:

Oh sure that man that's fine. I bet I don't even know if he's on that list. But he's one but the whole thing with him it kind of comes down to a really simple point. It's he had like this extreme early success and then it just it kind of tapered off. Then he just went to some other shit. Like I'm just gonna write and like, like, I remember it was a thing. It's called like, think Junot Blood in the Sand like have the fucking video game? Oh yeah. It's basically 50 walking around like him. LLOYD BANKS run around shooting people swear to god this game exists you can look it up but I mean is a very distinct part of the culture and for a minute you thought that he was gonna be like one of those Cornerstone points and like at this point of hip hop didn't win this way. No, it was a really bright one. But then it's kind of died down it's not true. I mean our chicken 50 right now not really started checking for US TV shows but as music

Jeff:

let's tell the truth to if he didn't have shady aftermath machine behind him he probably wouldn't have been as successful let's keep it a buck

Anthony:

if he didn't have if he didn't have shady aftermath he be dead crop tried to kill him. Right? Like like he still be doing that mixtape shit still doing this you don't be doing that. Rob shit this and everybody? Yeah, right. Tada. peran That's that shit that 50 definitely probably would have been dead. So the shady aftermath thing is the thing that saved his life. And why that's why that's why so blindly loyal to Eminem no matter what he does he know you're gonna have him back like I think he realized like you saved me from dying super important, but and since the top MCs in New York know so then people you would put ahead in New York? Yeah. From Europe. Biggie, Nick. Biggie. Nice. J. Lol, rock him back. Rock him. As a matter of fact, I'll put Kuji rap. Kane, Jada Kane, I would put grew from Gangstar ahead of him.

Jeff:

Yeah. Would you put let's say like a KERS and then go into Wu Tang

Anthony:

vigorous method, man.

Jeff:

Oh, that's right.

Anthony:

I mean, just like you can go with I would put Ray Kwan ahead of him. I mean, I put almost everybody from Wu Tang had him. Yeah,

Jeff:

I changed my mind. I can't put 50 in the top 10 There's just too many. I almost did. Buster.

Anthony:

Tip. Let me go into that world. Right and then de la. Like, for me. He's He's got nothing. It's not an insult against 50 is the whole thing that when you're thinking of New York, of all the talent that's there for you to even remotely being at 10. Like I say even Jada kisses corner kind of question on the list. Fab, it's kind of questionable to be in that top 10 Because there's so many people you can literally just put ahead of them. But in your five or six is going to your 567 and a half some combination of J nice big, big pun. Cool DJI GO. Big. Name big guy, but like, it's so many. It's a lot. Yeah,

Jeff:

probably like, a camera in front of them to camera.

Anthony:

I don't know about that. Yeah, I can see that. You know what it is? Because like cameras, cameras been relevant, like his entire career, specifically in hip hop. Like, it's not really been no other shit. Not to me. Like likes it? Yeah. If you know about 50 cent right now, you pretty much know. But if you're a layman, I guess you could say someone really nice into the culture, you know, from like television shows, you know from power or the TV shows on ABC by the guy that was incarcerated. I can't remember to give him for like, Oh, yeah. Yeah. You know, he's a he's a television producer now not a rapper, or you know, the stories about you know, like, his involvement with Glaciar and like vitamin water or you know, about like, I don't know, I feel like you know, the stuff about so me I'm also very biased against people that are on shady aftermath like that, like, I just, I just I don't know, I think and I know, this is an argument we can get into another time, but I think Eminem is corny and I think that anybody associated with with him is kind of like you kind of become This kind of corny branded character you like you have to play this kind of very particular. It's like It's like Nike, you've kind of part of this corporate brand name. And I just don't I think you lose credibility

Unknown:

with heartache.

Anthony:

You're welcome, Shay. You saw yourself as that fucking whoo hoo, West. I want to get off there. like, Nah, I'm good. I'm off shady. Like, I fucking want to feel like I'm good. I'm off shady. Yeah, like, like in like Brazil. The next thing up like that should be like, no shade. He's like, crown jewel that we need to hold on to them. Like now I'm going off here. Yeah. And then and I and I think that's great. Because it's like, that's it's just against their brand. Like, when I look at the weight Grizelda and have all the members kind of around them have done their careers. I think I dig it. Like I just I let it feels truthful to like, where they started and what they're, you know what their brand of hip hop is. We're fitting it was like, you know, just look at the first video look, look, you know, it's it's, you know, it's like they're selling him as they're launching him as this brand. And it was very calculated and it felt super sanitized to me. Not that I didn't like his music, but it was just not it doesn't hold a candle to Jay or NAS. I don't know man. courtesan call me about it. I got so much shit on my mind right now. But everyone jump in his mouth because I got mad things just Oh, my brain is stupid.

Jeff:

Yeah, I want to do I want to discuss the news that hit palm pro very happy for because I was in. I didn't condone this relationship to begin with. But apparently. Stevie J files for divorce from Faith Evans, who are you? Whoa, man, we've talked about this before. I told him. No, because I couldn't. I wasn't I was upset about this relationship here for a while. You know, there's a certain bro code. Like, not not that Biggie and Stevie J were like, BFFs or nothing like that. Right? But they you know, they did business together. They hung out together. But you know, I'm saying I would like to say there was boys, you know, I mean, Stevie J, you know, produce some of his music. And then I and I know it's been 20 years he's been gone, but I don't know. If one of you guys die in 20 years. I don't see myself marrying your wife.

Anthony:

I just I'm gonna ask you this. I just want to make sure I get your answer. So if you died tragically right. And so you're what you're trying to tell him that I couldn't date your wife. Or your your she's not your wife anymore. She is

Jeff:

my widow. Your widow. Widow. I don't know how I feel about it, bro. I don't know how I feel about you. But we

Anthony:

love you Anthony. You wouldn't feel shit you're dead get my point. But I'm just saying But dude, you're saying like like off GP? Like I couldn't do that. That's my I didn't

Jeff:

like the optics of it. You know for one should deny sleeping with park and I wholeheartedly believe she slept with them and then now she turns around and then she marries a guy that you know I mean was in the inner circle was running with big so that that suspect to me you know I'm saying

Anthony:

why but what see I have a different opinion about this about bro code and stuff like that. I you know, I can't Well first of all in and scenario like you love Anthony and you trust him right? What a better person to marry the person that you love on somebody was your I get it right so you can trust him, you know him. And I just you know, to me it's kind of like a I think it's kind of slut shaming of faith like Dude, she's she's, you know, making a decision. She's, you know, right, but I mean, and apparently leaving because she cheated on a plot, but I'm telling when you're telling me that big Biggie didn't fuck anybody else you did? Yes. Yeah, so then it's a fucking double standard.

Jeff:

He was fumbling around on his last day Charley Baltimore talks about the shit how she found obviously pictures in his phone or whatever other chicks. This was like, the day before he died. They had a fight to the point where they investigated her they said the cops came and you know, we understand you had a fight with him last night? Yeah, but I had nothing to do with him being murdered like

Anthony:

he definitely fucked someone in LA that night. Automatically. So and it's and I mean and the if you know if faith fuck two pocket she probably did. It was before it was before the beef. No. And during the beat was it not as to get back in? I don't know. I just don't care about I think I'm like that world. Everybody's every fucking everybody and

Jeff:

I would ever fuck all that. What would you have in your mind?

Anthony:

No, what I had in my mind is like, like, I'm just looking at the clock. Like, I didn't give a shit about the clock. But I just realized like, it's like five weeks to Christmas like this fucking years old is on crack. I gotta

Jeff:

go back in about a month and a half.

Anthony:

Gross. He got me man.

Jeff:

We're home for damn near two years. I ain't ready for the shit. I ready to go. I'm ready to live with people and socialize.

Anthony:

Is it January 1, you go back? Yes. Oh, yeah. Like I'm not I don't see how everybody just how all the companies haven't just gotten rid of all their offices, right. Get rid of the overhead and save a bunch of money.

Jeff:

I guess some people prefer to work amongst others and they like the camaraderie and I guess for meetings. Yeah, should it's easier for training.

Anthony:

I don't know. Yeah, I get this gonna feel raggedy as fuck. Years of Jay. You got to knock the dust off initially. Yeah, I was gonna say there's like three inches of done on it

Jeff:

actually they got to fumigate because from from what I understand you know the when we all left the office a lot of people have snacks in their desk and shit. And then the office has been abandoned. For almost two years there was like Roaches and rats and spiders everywhere and

Anthony:

I didn't even think about that someone like that tuna sandwich

Jeff:

drawer and I'm probably guilty of it. I used to always leave snacks and sit at my desk.

Anthony:

A tuna sandwich has been there for two years. No more gross. Your office is just one big science fair project at this point.

Jeff:

Yeah, totally. I'm not going back and sort of

Anthony:

Anthony:

Yeah, I'm gonna do I'm gonna beat you at Darts nyandarua darts, But yo,

Jeff:

before I leave, I want to address Will Smith once again. I don't want to make this a weekly thing. But you know, Will Smith is a hot topic right now his memoir just came out. You know, I'm getting that book so we can talk actually one of our Patreon is the newest Patreon Sebastian has the book and I told him you know, the very last page is gonna say by the way, folks, I'm gay. And I wouldn't even be surprised. But I have exclusive I have exclusive information from from very credible sources. I'm not saying

Anthony:

God damn

Jeff:

Anthony:

the negatives and dark skinned? Obviously that's racist and the real point we say allegedly,

Jeff:

allegedly according to a very very very, very credible sources. Will Smith when he travels he travels with his personal trainer who is by the way he's doing his whole DadBod things I don't know if he's doing much working out these days. But anyway, um, normally he travels on his personal training right from hotel to hotel and it's he's a he's a he's a male He's a gentleman and they will always get two rooms right one for Will Smith one for his personal trainer. According to my sources, again very credible sources. Will Smith's bedroom would always be messed up. The personal trainers bedroom would always be untouched when they would go in there to clean you take that whatever you want to take that

Anthony:

it's that's a really good personal trainer is training 20% saying they burning calories in the training doesn't stop at the gym. Oh, it

Jeff:

Jeff:

not insinuating that world is gay or he's not gay, or he's bi and it doesn't matter if he is I'm just putting out the information. Yeah, do as your will with it. And I like

Anthony:

Anthony:

someone who works in a hotel,

Jeff:

I put sources and then the cop semicolon trust me.

Anthony:

If this source is your mother, I heard she heard. My name is thought I heard from somebody somewhere. Right? What's my mother? It's my allegedly, I just tend to think that everybody in Hollywood is bisexual. Like it, will it they're full of Hollywood's full of egomaniacs. What's better way to celebrate yourself than to be like have sexual attention you know placed upon you I think everybody fucks initiated is for the

Jeff:

elite you have to fuck man women child's animal they don't give a fuck children and

Anthony:

Thank you Luminati come fuck this goat like Wait part of the sacrifice?

Because I feel comfortable with the goat goat and the goat King for diseases for COVID has been tested for COVID almost can't consent go put it on a piece of paper like I consent alright well sprint

Jeff:

I got my quote for the week ended off by a gentleman by the name of Ralph Ellison. It takes a deep commitment to change and an even deeper commitment to grow a sound the sexual but it works

Anthony:

in transit transit a bigot addicted DB your satisfaction should I get weighed down here you gotta get to the bottom of that policy or a whatever whatever. There's actually more space and asked and it will be in the vagina the vagina has a natural cap at the end it's a straight shot to pray God knows where each and let's just remind everybody without a base without a trace
