Jeff:

Thank you for tuning in to another episode of the culture. This is episode 90. It's your boy Jeff, man, and it was 90 a milestone.

Anthony:

Not just a number. I feel like that's a milestone bro. We only 10 away on the big one honey. I don't you know what I've been through everyday constantly I'm going to talk about numbers no longer that true that like, like everybody. We reached 100 This is not TV like we're not in syndication?

Jeff:

Yeah, we got several things to discuss today. We're going to do a commercial free today for y'all man. I ain't gonna do no interruptions you know I mean, but I'll get a shout out to our patrons or aka culture crew. appreciate ya. Having said nobody are we taking a break? Like if somebody starts shooting the says awesome.

Anthony:

Things are hearing gunshots sad but like we'll be right back. I just I just want to know how

Jeff:

to record right through that shit like oh, you're i Let's keep going right? I got a bullet in my shoulder next time.

Jeff and Ant:

Yo, but rest in peace to NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins, bro. Fucking tragedy man. Played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was only 24 years old man. Anyway, he died yesterday. How do you get hit by a truck? Yo. How does that even happen? How do you get hit by a fucking truck? The shit is sad but apparently he was on like a freeway overpass freeways and shit like that up analysts guild rams fucking getting backlash you Sorry, we had to apologize.

Anthony:

And this could be a top app pulled up right here and I got I got a racist a new Is that racist segment later on, but that's gonna be racist. See, this is what I'll be talking about. See? That this whole thing where people trying to question like, Yo doesn't really like why people should like that. And I'm like, no problems, white people. And that the tendency, the most outlandish, should do the most outlandish shit at the wrong fucking times. And I call them out about this. I know you're about to say this. But when I read this, I had to pause for a minute cuz I'm like, You gotta be fucking kid like now, at this point. At the what just happened? All you will say is pretty much a few choice words. Not this, but go ahead.

Jeff:

Yeah, you should be saying condolences to the family. But Gil Brandt, who was an old white man, you know, I got to preface by saying that. And these are his comments. I hate anytime any books that are named Gil Brandt. I hate anytime anybody dies. But he was a guy that was living to be dead, so to speak. It was always something it's a tragic thing. Especially if you're 24 years old with your whole life ahead of you. But maybe if he stayed in school a year, he wouldn't do silly things like jogging on a highway. Say what? And then he later had to apologize, you know, whatever, whatever. Adam Schiff. No, another Adam Schefter is another one when he reported it from ESPN. And he was saying you know, you know, the in high schools died and he points out like his negatives, you know, I'm saying like he was struggling in his career. Like why even say that she you know, I'm saying so he was getting backlash on the comments, too. Yeah,

Anthony:

I had to do that. He was drafted by Washington and play for this team. He was playing for this unit, and you try to make sure that you're you're struggling to stay in the league. See, and then they were like, I'm not racist, but then you do shit like this. And you wonder why I say things like this because it's exactly why they got another dude that man's death. That man's death onto itself was an accident. But it was a tragedy. And all you need to say is you know, good John Clare sad to see him go condolences to his family, everybody that goes to the mothership. Now there's no need for you throw anything else in there. And I think Louis Very good. Like I hope you didn't mean mean this as you said it not once you say it, you meant it. And the fact that you know, he said it. I don't want to hear an apology of like, I'm sorry. Like, you already said that. Like, you can't take back that like you knew exactly what you're doing at that moment. Same thing, but Adam Schefter like you don't have to mention anything about his career. That's not the point. I didn't do was talking about his playing career. He played for this team. That team was on this team. He died at 24 tragic event. So before in like fifth Adam deleted that and like, revise it, but they Oh, I was thinking before speaking it didn't they weren't apologies for what they said or what they wrote. Stop doing the shit.

Jeff and Ant:

Yeah, so I said, Fuck them. Do you think that's racist? By the way? This is not the exact phrasing. So I have an SF radio segment for later but

Anthony:

yes, yes, absolutely. No. You can say anything about anybody at the time of their death. If they were a terrible human being should probably mention that if they had this wild and competent life, they did a whole bunch of things. Good, bad, indifferent to probably mentioned at all, the guy was 24 years old. He left Ohio State early. He went to NFL he was drafted in the first round. He played for a couple teams. That's it. Like that pretty much surmised his career. He didn't make a pro bowl or his elite leader in this debt or whatever or or whatever it might be. It wasn't wasn't it? NFL Play played, he died. I mean, I don't want to be crass about it or too direct. But sometimes, when you're dealing with death, it's the easiest thing for you to do. It's the easiest. It's racist as fuck. Because you don't get to come out your white ass mouth and say something like that you don't you just don't, especially as it just happened. And Gil Brandt who the guy who's, like, just walked over Now Scott, like one of the most famous ever, like his job is to look at players and analyze them. We're talking about his death and that dude's career and got shit to do with Ohio State and got nothing to do with his like him being his awareness or whatever else like that. Like that's not funny. And like I said, I don't accept your last week as a policy. Yeah, that's racist. Like, if it was anybody that I hate doing it, what if it was anybody else would the reaction have been the same? to Now I'm almost forced. But I wonder what to say when the last NFL player who died? What did they say? No racial, right? Just died. He's an old player. It's like in the 70s. Something else like that. And I hear that negative like Raphael, right? Former cowboy, all pro dot dot that. Right, but then they do this with him like, because it's some connotation by him being young and black. And I guess they think that, that it was dangerous for him to do whatever you're doing. I don't know. What caused him to end up in that position where he got hit by something, but you asked me if he's racist. Yeah, man. I'm tired of shit.

Jeff:

Yeah, and I don't want to. I'm done with the whole Will Smith saga. But obviously, we got to mention that he got suspended from the Oscars for 10 years.

Anthony:

Oh my god. Okay. So here's the part about people to my racism. For me, it goes both ways. Like, there are black people upset that he got suspended for 10 years. And I'm like, come on, for one year, I don't really care about Will Smith that much, because you're the ones making the jokes about him, too. I don't care about the Oscars. If you tell me that you watch the Oscars every single year. I know is you're lying to me. And we cannot be friends. I know you're being dishonest with me. No one does. Do you watch the Oscars every year? No. No. The only you only watch the Oscars when it's something remotely entertaining. I might catch your eye or a movie might be there to see if they might want or not or particular actor,

Jeff:

right. I just wanted to see well winning because I know who's gonna win the shoot.

Anthony:

Right, exactly. That's the only reason why. And they said they suspended him for 10 years. Okay, here's a theoretical, this has never happened. Never going to happen. But let's say I don't know. Let's say it has six periodic. Okay. Then Rihanna says with the very next day. I never ever want to see again. I don't want to see you see, you're gonna touch again for the next 10 years. Doesn't necessarily change the fact that has sex, we honor the fact that we'll won the Oscar and like you banned some shit I don't generally go to anyway. It's not really hurting them. So why people are up in arms about this or like, planting their flag like this shit is racist. Like, no, it's not man. I can try and tell people. If you got to do something, you got to do some shit. You can't be slapping people on company time. You got to do this shoot tomorrow. Like there's a consequence that goes along with it. Like, I rather than suspend him for something that he probably wasn't going to go to anyway. Then it's like, take away like, it's Oscar. And the thing is like, you know, he's banned from like, like Academy events and stuff like that. Like, if I'm well, but I don't think he's paid like me. Like, every like every Oscar like I will throw like the biggest party every year. Like, like the after Oscar party. Like, everybody gonna wish. That's where we're going. But that's me because I'm paid to like, I ain't gotta beat it. But you have to live party in town and everybody going to be here so good for that family. I'm taking them to

Jeff:

the funny shit is that he could still be nominated. He could still win. Shit. He just can't beat it. Except that you imagine next year he they give him an award for some shit. And Jada is there it goes up to accept it for him. How hilarious

Anthony:

would that be? Jada goes in except that award. I'm divorced her Chris Rock is the one presenting it. And I'm divorced her the verdict today. Why? Because Because we a team. I'm not here. You're not here. Don't you don't speak for me. You don't do for me. You didn't act in this movie. You didn't earn a spot? I'm not gonna send my kids up there. I'm not gonna send my wife if I'm been my family's man, we all are not going I'm gonna send that I ain't going because you I said I can't. But I'm gonna send anyone else in it as a proxy for me. Y'all can do it whatever you I do have somebody like he's not here to accept the war tonight militia to my house and do like that. But if she showed up there, I'll be entirely pissed off. Like, this is over like you really really don't support me like you're gonna have to accept the award that you probably never going to win for your own performances, but you're going to do the shit quote unquote for me and placement in and ban me for 10 years you don't even need to be here. What did you just say you didn't want to be here a couple years ago until the Oscars so white so I fuck you up there on your lonesome trying to accept the war for me? Absolutely not. No, hell no

Jeff:

big fan of a wars they had the Grammys that I don't even think anybody really watched. But The only award that I was concerned about was Best Rap Album of the Year. And they gave their shit to Tyler the Creator. And the nominees was Tyler the Creator, for whatever his album was NAS for. What was it the was the king's disease tour? Was it the magic goblin? King Caesar, and then they had Kanye and Drake was supposed to be on if for whatever reason I'm not haven't really dug into it. He decided to pull his shit from it. It probably because he didn't want to be part of this shit show.

Anthony:

He's like Tyler Kanye wants to lose to these cats. Now just don't even mention me. So they gave it to Tyler the Creator. Which is blasphemy because now I should have went I know taller creators on tour. And he's selling out Madison Square Garden. He's selling out all the arenas across the country. I get on that his album is not better than the Nazi. It just isn't nice. Should have been on his back to back Grammy Awards titles. He should have won, you know, for the second year in a row. Am I wrong in saying that? We already talked about this. I said, I'm gonna give you a whole five minutes to cook you go right on ahead. I'm gonna argue with you. It's an award we actually shouldn't even give a shit about. Yeah, I really did. Normally I don't but the fact that they gave it to NAS last year he's like all right, well, maybe they're paying attention to some shit you know I'm saying and then there's this year to go right back to the fuckery Do you think they're not deserved every year? No, but if he if the nominees are him Tyler the Creator and Kanye and he's putting out dope shit year after year. Then yeah, he should begin to shit

Jeff and Ant:

he's not like he was going up against no classic. She wasn't going up against nothing that you know, I'm saying. I can't even name you Tyler's album. I can't name a song on that album. I can't say a lyric from that album.

Anthony:

Okay, keep up I don't know I got to create that data to the to do to do to give me a second.

Jeff and Ant:

Okay, last for me. All right. Are you a fan? Stillmatic Yes, you are. Okay, so Stillmatic was in 2001 Right? Right. Best Rap Album that year the nominees country grammar volume three Life and Times Dr. Dre 2001 Then there was x it was one by Marshall with the exception with the exception of Nelly I'll take his as I don't belong in that category. But he sold a lot of records so I get it and any of those so you will take our country grant Yeah 2001 Best Rap Solo Performance country grand Michigan asked Mr. Cool party up ahead DMX delight common one BB real Slim Shady literally like Eminem song not him but you get my point. Best Rap Performance by a group of duo big pimpin the next episode Ooh de la Sol with Redman alive Beastie Boys forgot about very one. So you say he's still mad. I'm saying what he have one a fit and at that time, I mean, if he who wanted in those years do you know because anybody looked anybody could have. Nick I literally just said Rosen, the best friend of Parliament. That's Rap Performance by group or Duo's forgot about Dre Best Rap Albums of Marshall. Metacell. Okay, I have no problem with any of that. Those are classic albums was a classic songs. You can't complain with Grammy winners. Right? Right. You can't complain with that. You know what I'm saying? But if it was just nice going up against Nellie and they would have given it to Nellie then I would have a problem. But he lost out to some dope shit. That's cool. But this year he loses out to Tyler Creek. Can you name a title to create a song? I'm not a big fan. I'm not like the music is some Generation Z shit. If you're above 25 You don't listen to Tyler to create it. So who exactly is people are the voters for the Grammys? Because I'm pretty sure they're not 20 year olds. And amongst that being old, the show for like what? What I like I'm not I'm not checking for Tyler creative yet but can I check if your donation bars don't move me know, you know where the young cats I'm listening to? I'm listening to to court date. You don't I'm saying there's some cats I check for Tyler the creator's not that you listen to forever, you know, pretty good. Just respect him more than title creator. Also, let me preface again by saying this has nothing to do with Tyler the Creator being a homosexual. You know, we know he's gay, but I'm just saying that because because there's gonna be people out there that's gonna be like, Oh, he's homophobic. I mentioned sexuality. Not once and I'm just putting that out there. I don't like him. You mentioned when you mentioned the sexuality that it seems like you're homophobic at night. It was like, hey, like like uncontroverted Why you dislike his music? I never mentioned that at all. Hey, and I don't mention gotta mention should now. You got to straighten it out. No, you don't. Until someone says like you don't like his music because you're homophobic. Like, no, I don't give a damn but it's good. So I'm like music want but once you say, you know, let me preface this. I don't like the guy just because he's gay. Then you're giving people an insight into it. I don't give a shit that he's gay.

Jeff:

I don't like his trash. You Isn't that tragic? Not for you? I guarantee there's some gay rappers that we probably didn't even know what gay that we like they were like, oh shit, you know, it's dope.

Anthony:

How do we get on a gay rapper content? Like who's gay? Let's pull it I'm just trying to point out that has nothing to do with the conversation even though I don't forget. Exactly. That's why you never bring it up like, you don't know like, that's the whole thing. People asking you if I was racist, but you're asking me to speak on a segment that says, Is this racist? I'm talking about like, Are you sure you're not like no, it's just I'm speaking on the topic at hand. And once you mentioned Tyler and it comes up like that, but I get it, I get it with you because you are used to a particular type of music, and I can't fault you but it creates blind spots. Like if it's not the kind of shit you like, you're really not gonna fuck with

Jeff:

it. It's not even about what I like. Is Tyler the creator's album better than Knauss album?

Jeff and Ant:

Why are you even thinking about this? You can make an argument Get the fuck out of here, man. I'm moving on. You gotta you gotta black Oh no. Because now you now you're just playing devil's advocate. You don't you ain't even listened to Tyler's album. You don't know one song on that album.

Anthony:

The album was in 2021 Right. I know. You listen to the NAS shit. You know, like that played the first couple times haven't played it back since but you played it a couple of times. How many times have you played Tyler's shit? Three times to get the fuck out of here. 2019 1918 70 are just Rolling Stone some white as Zeplin right. So hi, baby MaxO. Kream 14 Yay is 13 Is The Best Rap Album 2021 and Young Thug is 11 top five man going 12 Young Thug wire sells 11 Drake is 10 P airborne as soon as they be trying to eight Lunars extra $7 Cat six making the stallion five. Both the James alcumus For that was double Jack's out what's good for Tyler to create. It was three, my economy was to Playboy cardi was one night isn't even on it. Now we're gonna I'm gonna scroll back, see, if I, if I miss something Dojin whatever it

Jeff:

is, and I'm off to let's just move on. Because I suppose because I need to know who are these people that are writing these articles? And who's voting for these shifts? Like, Are they young cats? Are they in their 20s? You know, I'm saying Are they older gentlemen that are out of touch? Like I don't I don't know. Who's representing the culture? who's representing the culture right now is what I need to know. Like, is a diverse group. Is it a panel of different people in their 20s 30s 40s 50s? No, because you can't have those kinds of people represented. You can't because you know, Why could they end up doing the old man shit like we all do? And the young people do that young people should like they do they only pick they shit. That's why That's why you need a diverse panel. No, but that's the problem that you're offering to your cast don't even acknowledge anything that didn't come before them. Like if not dope before he was born. They don't even acknowledge that nozzle even exists right now. He's now he's he's extinct. And I've heard young, and I've heard people in the early 20s even telling me to shit. I've heard Gen Z cats telling me like, oh, that doesn't matter as old like, how's that old? Did somebody say somebody recently? I swear to God, they did. And that's the problem I have with Gen Z cats, bro. Like if it happened before your time, it didn't exist. Like really? Like our generation didn't respect the past like that. You know, I'm saying we still gave props to the people in the culture in the 70s and 80s. Especially the ones that are still doing it today. Did we was kind of petty about it. Now, we acknowledged go to her. We necessarily didn't put people on our list, but we acknowledge them and like yellow Cujo. He was doing his thing in the 80s. You know, but he was still doing his thing in the 90s. And we acknowledged that he was the goat. When you're when your mom has a pocket listen to Latin music when he was a kid. Did you love that shit? I hate that shit.

Anthony:

I hated it. I like it now, though, right? You became an old man, you grew into the shit, right? Right. The whole thing with this is like, the stuff you grew up with. It came in at a particular time, like, we got the quote, unquote, pinnacle of hip hop earlier in our life than most people did. So it differs. It really, really different compared to most people, right? So when you see the new generation now, it's like, you know, they don't, they don't split the way we did a budget that we did. It's actually kind of worse. I'm like, hopefully they would go beyond it's like, you're still doing guns and drugs. I thought it was off that shit. But they still do it, right? So when we look at the origin, or like the younger dudes and be like, Y'all don't get it, like you shouldn't be doing this, you should be doing that. I'm of the mind. Like, I'm not going to tell you what to do or what not to do because you're finding some kind of success at what you're doing. Is it sustainable? I have zero idea because I don't know anybody on this class that has really graduated to an upper echelon outside of Cole Kendrick Drake, I mean, Wayne's Wayne, right. So like the new ones all the littles and all the The ones that spelling names with like C's and z's and different kinds of letters and represent certain hand signals that we're not going to speak about on the show. I don't know. But those kids at this generation love them. And I can't get mad at them. They say like, the rap you should be rapping like this should be speaking like that. Because I feel the same way when I'm growing up. Listen to fucking Rappers Delight, like, terrible. This is one of my favorite rap songs of all. time when Nasha comes on in a party, we know every word, right? Right on it like hip hop, inhibited hip hop and you don't stop rapping to the band band booth to book it to them or them but the bulk of the beat yes we do here is that it says yeah, okay, I'm rapping to the beat not saying a goddamn thing on that song. Right. And neither are the kids this generation they aren't anything. Nothing is see see how was how it swings around? They wouldn't say shit in that song. And nothing shouldn't be songs now. But the thing is that that song they lasted the test of time. I don't know if this music now with like I said, we're five years with little baby with little whatever, fuck. If it's going to be a am I going to think that the generation that is now that they're going to go to concerts 20 years from now listening to that music? I do not know, but I don't see anything that has any any staying power. It's all homogenized. They all read the same flow the same way the same tone, the same trap beats this is like it's it's homogenous. Nothing stands out. The reason why you'd like cordate is because he stands out. Right? Right. Right, because he's reminded because he reminds me of the shit that I grew up listening to that I likes today still, like lyrical shit. Because he can rap right? And I feel like his shoe could stand the test of time today's viewed like that mumble should that can't stand the test of time that's, you know, cyclical. Eventually they're gonna grow out of that shit. Nobody is gonna be in 20 years listening to mumble rap. Like you you mentioned my parents music. You know, when I was little Yeah, my dad was was listening to Hulu Glacies. And I was like, Damn, what the focus is all that shit. As I got older and I started appreciating lyrics, and I go back and listen to this man and his poetry. Like he's singing poetry. Like when you look at the lyrics that you know, and the love songs and shit, but the way they put the words and you're like, God, damn, this is dope. So as I got older, I started appreciating it more as I started appreciating lyrics more you know what I'm saying? You're the killer. Yeah, yeah, yeah, shut the fuck up. tear that down. Right. Try to watch cartoons be I noticed song anytime give it a read. But as a person who likes lyrics and who likes words, and that's why I liked the nozzles and the court days, etc. And I go back and I listened to the OSHA that my dad was listening to it. Yeah, they were ballads. And they were love songs or whatever. But when I listened to the lyrics, I'm like, God, damn, he spent some shit. You know, I'm saying it was poetry. So I started appreciating him more. I can't listen.

Jeff and Ant:

Oh, yeah, I can't listen to no mumble shouldn't be like Danny spitting Nah, don't do that for me. Anyway, let's move on.

Anthony:

But it's not that it's not even just that like you do seem to r&b That's why it's harder. It's so many r&b dudes like who do you really rock with like, there's no consensus. It same thing. We grew up like I said, we grew up in a generation where we didn't have to wait till midnight to stream a song. We had to go into a store whether by CD or tape, and if you're really into the art of it the craft of it not only did you buy said tape a CD, you put said tape a CD on, opened up said CD case or tape case and literally read along with it, and wrapped along with it. Word for word. I don't like to say I'm saying this is a whole different generation. I don't know what they'd be talking about 90% of time I'm like, bro, like, if you turn on the radio station right now, I cannot tell you distinctly one artist from another area that said homogenized all others everybody was different. That's why I didn't sound like not my beatbox I like nice who didn't sound like Jay who didn't sound like Snoop who didn't sound like Pong who didn't say like there's never hear by tone is different. They all sound all different flavors. And like that's what that's what fuck is it that's why I listen to 94 seven now the new black shirt because it's just plays the old school she just placed shift from the 90s and early 2000s And they got a little bit doing three hours

Jeff:

and they got they got Nick Cannon has like two different time slots on this shit. He got like a morning slot and he got to think like an afternoon slot.

Anthony:

Keep having kids man he will keep gotta keep having jobs. He got like 18 jobs. all them kids. You go he'd be working forever. What? You know the Dick Clark like New Year's Eve thing that's gonna be him. I'm telling you.

Jeff and Ant:

Let him get his paper man. He's one of the richest entertainers in the world. He just never makes the Forbes this because a lot of his shit is underground shit. You know, saying you don't report all his money.

Anthony:

You'd be better. You go to jail. You better report that shit.

Jeff and Ant:

He got headphones. He got headphones that are made by the same people that make the Dre Beats for half the price.

Anthony:

But how many people own them? I don't fucking know. I think that Nick is Nick is wealthy. He's hosting like three different shows. You know? He has a record label. He still signs artists. He's making all types of money man. He got his own brand and incredible brand, whatever. He's wealthy. Yeah. Number one, he's, he's rich. He's not wealthy. Maybe his wife's wealthy It was excellent ex wife. Mix rich. That's not the kind of it's not who's richer Mariah Carey Mariah? Exactly she's wealthy he's rich. Like like like Shaq was rich the white man is wealthy as the bus family they're wealthy you could be rich but wealth is different generation generational fact right rich riches not rich can come and go riches a couple of wild months also when you broke again you wealthy you could blow money like that because I got a whole lot more what I came from this is normally where we would have a break but like I said, we're gonna do commercial free today. I mean, just just going to show notes man click them links go on the website. I busted up one of the sponsors like Toby I sell a product but the fuck we just you know sales don't don't don't let them make us come to you man. You know just going to coach a dot one which over the square and lotion. Yeah, man. I was just sounded exotic.

Jeff:

I know it did feel good about skin. Yeah, to coach it that one man go check out the blog. Check out the website, man. Let's go But yo, Staying on the topic of rap. What you think about the game supposedly having a diss track for Eminem? Is that career suicide? I feel like that's career suicide.

Anthony:

Can't be suicide if you already did. Good careers already been like I mean, why would my thing is this kind of shit for a little while and it's not that guy. Go ahead, but it's not the person I'm just saying like, em came from the battle rap scene. He's notoriously known for eating people on bad raps or you know, I'm saying are in distracts and in people's careers Why would you allow your agent or your publicist to put this information out there? Because now what you're doing is you given be rabid aka Eminem. Time to go into lab real quick and come up with some concoction you know I mean, before you even allowed to drop because he hasn't even dropped the song if I'm not mistaken or I haven't heard no smash it yet. No, he hinted at the shit so now m you know am I gonna put this all together real quick. Here go into booth record some shit drop it next day and completely murder you before you should even come up. Awesome be ravish it and talk about you before you have a chance to even talk about him. And the whole thing is that it don't talk it up if it's not gonna be fire. It better be fine. That'd be fine.

Jeff and Ant:

I'm not doubting games abilities you know think was he when he was going at 15 when he was going at God and he was making them just that I'm sure it was all fire to me.

Anthony:

Yeah, there were fire but with a memorable No, I can't really remember like a line or a ball like the one so I remember was that 300 balls and running shit. Well, he literally did 300 balls and it was like a 15 minute song for the whole G Unit he murdered and he kept doing it on different beats. I thought that show was dope. That show was outstanding. Yeah, but I hate gimmicks but that's what it was a gimmick Yeah, I hate him going to his own 300 bars like I don't care like it's such a random ask them and then the beat just kept changing every few seconds or whatever every minute. And like he did it or he dissed them on like every disk beat from in history you know I mean and that makes it a parody it doesn't make it like right good right? No Vaseline is a good this ether is take over there rounds round knockout the repo strike later on. I got Yeah, and like it's all it takes Dre day. Yes. Absolutely. And what do you do when you're in a situation like that? Like is whatever trick that you're going to drop? It's going to be to that level? I have no idea what I think is capable. Yes. Do I think he could formulate it? No, because I know that apparently I think he's gonna He's like here's an album oh now like you got some coming out soon. Like this seems like water to draw up controversy then to actually really do anything to really enhance or redirect his career flexit we're just talking about like that generation of rat like he's a guy that shouldn't be here doing whatever he's doing now but it just hasn't worked out that way. Like he's gained but is yet Ross's level know that Drake's No, I mean, Kendrick not even really are here in the streets like that, but Kendrick probably aren't really dropped to classics, maybe three. I had to think about it but no, just games. It's not that person. He's not the person we expect him to be. And for him to try to go at a ball people Eminem, and of all people trying to do some some this shit. He's not that guy. Trust me. He's why and he's been in the and he's been the one in the past in interviews to say that, you know, Eminem is that white boy that you don't want to mess with? He said that before? I've heard him say it in interviews. Then what to do besides the method? Yeah, because he's, you know, he needed his new album coming out. He probably needs to sell some shit. He's not in the spotlight. He's irrelevant. Now. He's been irrelevant for years. So he just goes online and stars, these little Twitter beefs with it. He sent again and now he gonna dis Eminem, okay? You could do that if you want to. But when Eminem puts the squad together and he gets G unit and he gets D 12. And he gets Royce and he gets Obie Trice on a mixtape and creates an entire mixtape, just to dis you know say he wasn't born because they did that withdrawal rule when Joe decided to say one or two words about Eminem his daughter, what did Eminem do? He went into the lab and made mixtapes entire mixtapes with all his boys targeting Ja Rule and destroyed the man's career. I'm just thinking like, why, like, logically why it don't make sense for him to just snap a fair fight. Like we still hold things like I've told you before, like there's certain things in hip hop you don't do you don't mention anybody from the Wu Tang. You just don't. And you don't go after Eminem. You don't go after Eminem's daughter like you don't mention her ever. And then you don't this Eminem. That's it. Those are like the three unwritten rules of hip hop. But why do you even try to attempt to do so like, since the thing I think if you're a game, and you're an ABA mode, I think your attention and focus should be putting out a really dope project not decisive show shit. Because the whole thing is that he might drop it and let's say it's fire, but it might never respond to like, I got other shit. Like, I've remember the whole thing about being rich and wealthy. Like I don't even know if games rich. I know that Eminem is wealthy. I know that he was wealthy and it's fine. But the whole thing is like I like once you get to a particular point in time. I don't have to respond to any of this shit. I just know that he's probably won't tell me that this is racist. All the white people that you mentioned, you've been saying that they're wealthy Eminem, Mariah Carey's wealthy, you know, the Lakers owners. But then you say that the black folks are just rich. Shaquille O'Neal was rich. Okay, this person is rich. That sounds kind of racist. It's okay. Okay, let me kind of your question with a question. How many black billionaires Do you know?

Jeff and Ant:

I'm Dr. Dre, you go Wait, no, no, there's a couple that he's not. What about Jay Z?

Anthony:

One? What about Michael Jordan? To maybe Kanye? He keeps saying that it might be it might be like, it might be like five maybe in the entire world. It might be like five might be like five. And we just named like two three. Or they told me that there are approximately does the Google machine say after the pandemic born slow markets hits the world billions. There are 2668 of them who make their place in the fields. We're speaking world with a collective value of 12 point 2 trillion. So this is this is an accurate but if we're just going off the top. Let's see this gentleman is Indian. He's worth 90 billion. Steve Ballmer was born in 91. Larry Ellison's work 106, Sergey Brin, who owns Google's 107 sort of black people, Larry Page, 107. Warren Buffett 118. I was gonna go to the Google machine, and we're going to type in specifically black billionaire. Black billionaires in there's gonna be like five and one of them might be half white. Like Mariah is halfway. All right. Yeah. Well, she's not really brilliant. But you said she's wealthy. Right. Tyler Perry? Jay Z. Okay. Yeah. I don't mispronounce the name, but they credit. Econet Wireless in Zimbabwe. Right. So it's basically internet for Africa. Yes. Okay. Michael Lee chin, who is a native of Jamaica. He owns a fortune Investment Company, national company, American venture maker. Michael Jordan is 1.6 Rihanna is 1.7 way Brianna a billionaire. Yeah, not from a music just from all the vintage shit. Right. Kanye is a billionaire. But not because of his music, right? Literally because of the easy brand, right? Adidas, all that stuff. Alex Karp and SEO software have probably now loosening my ad I actually put on a pair the other day, dumb shits are comfortable as a mother. Everybody says that they're ugly. You're ugly or something bullshit, because I went to a cousin of mines house and he had a he has a whole wall. Like he collects sneakers and shit. And I'm like, What the fuck are these ugly shoes. They looked at the form when they're all white. The foam right? But it looks like slippers. Like you just slip your foot in them shoes. And I was like, Yo, this is ugly. But I felt like I was walking on clouds. But it was like real soft and comfortable. I see Oprah 2.7 and we forgot about Oprah. How do we do that? Actually was going to be on it. And the rest of 12345 or the next six are gentlemen that are located on Nigeria. Africa is the rock. Mecca Sita Robin on Ellis pretty soon the rock is not a billionaire. Not yet. And then and then when he becomes that, is he going to we talked about this before he doesn't embrace his blackness. Is he going to start embracing his blackness or is he going to embrace his you know, I mean his Polynesian side more riders as always, there'll be like the first Polynesian billionaire. Exactly. But as of now, the rocks net worth is $320 million. He's not there yet. It takes a lot to get to be. Now I'm not, I'm not faulting people. When the point I'm trying to make that the majority of the beginners in the world, like I said, the richest, they said the richest one is a Nigerian man who's a billionaire who's worth $11 million. And like, say, Sergey Brin, who owns google 107. So I mean, they're both very wealthy. But there's a kind of distinct levels of wealth. I'm not trying to make a racist anything else for that and just point out particular facts. If you happen to be white, and you happen to be well off, you're generally not like in a struggling mode most times, like it's something again, because when I guess some black people come rich, it's kind of like, sorted out when white people are wealthy, it's generational. But not that they rich that they Daddy was rich, What if mom was rich, but grandma was rich, but a grandma mom was rich, and it was kind of go forward and for and afford to kind of just accumulate wealth over time. So I'm not trying to say that it's racist? No, it's kind of making a valid point that they generally have that kind of wealth that it's literally generational, like, we've had this kind of money for decades, almost eons to this degree at this point. So to say all of a sudden, like, kind of popped out of blue sky, no, black people have generally been a labor that they kind of build that success and things off of. So you kind of run a little bit behind the rat race, another all being rich. I think everybody wants to be wealthy. I think the idea of people saying that we're generational wealth is like, you got to kind of calm the fuck down just a little bit. Let's work on rich first, let's get this shit under control, then we can go to the next step. But everyone loves that term generational wealth, like you know what it takes to make generational wealth. It takes one person in your entire family to be focused on literally nothing else, but money. How many people do you know in your family? Because I don't know if I like that in my family, you know, anybody a family like that? Now? Right? It's hard. It's hard. It's extremely difficult to build generational wealth, I think, like, let's, let's get to rich first, let's see, we have the kind of the wealth that can carry on to the next generation, they can build on top of that, they can build on top of that, and maybe they come across something, or they invest in the right thing that creates that kind of wealth, like a motherfucker, working eight jobs is going to have a lot of money doesn't necessarily mean they're going to be that kind of wealthy, but to never have to worry about it again, you're going to have to worry about it again, because you're working eight fucking jobs to get all these streams of income, you got to manage them all. Now you just sit back and be like, Oh, I'm cool. It's taxing. It's a lot. Like those responses I was talking about. It's not like they dislike I own Google. So I'm just gonna, like, chill on the beach for the next six months. And I'll be working like 16 hour days every day, to maintain that, like, particular level of dedication, that I'm not saying that people aren't capable of, I think so many people are. But it's a sacrifice you got to make for your family and everything else to kind of get to that point. You're hoping that it's worth it so they can enjoy the fruits of your labor. But it happens, but like I said, next rich. Mariah is wealthy, because Mariah been doing it for a very long fucking time. Unlike Nick. That's the biggest difference. How does how does Nick Cannon fire like in his mid 30s, late 30s? Maybe? He might be. I might say was he born when her first album came out? She is saying that. I'm talking with you. As far as online, she's I just realized that she's been doing this shit for a very long time.

Jeff:

Look, Nick Cannon is 41 years old. He was born in 1980.

Anthony:

Okay, am I correct? Shimmer, I carried like fit the issue. Okay, all right. Carrie is 53 years old. That's what's up. But yo, by the way, Dwayne Haskins was from Jersey but you're not. from Highland Park. I did. My my when one of my one of my closest friends in the world Alan, his his wife's cousin. They were direct cousins. Like when he got drafted. Get a draft party at the bowling alley. She was there. Like that's her cousin, cousin, cousin. Oh,

Jeff:

well, yo, let's move along. Check out the culture that one commercial free today. And going back to what you had said about sponsorships, or shout out to hydronium hydration. They did sponsors for about a month. But now I decided to take a little break from sponsors. Because what I want to do is I want to find black and brown owned businesses to represent United man sponsors. You know, we've been having these sponsors And you know, again, shout out to anybody who sponsored us, you know, and against them. But we over here talking about the culture we promote in black and brown people and all of this. And we didn't really promote him black and brown businesses. But we need to find those that want to sponsor us so we could promote them that you know, so that's what I want to do. I want to promote minority owned businesses. And something that you would say we got to stop giving these white folks this money in people's pockets.

Anthony:

I saved it but I said goodbye to my money. I'm not of course. I'm not gonna flinch, I'm afraid No, no, no, no, it just sounds like something you would have said. No, it but it's true. The thing is like um, It's weird that you bring this up because I was having this conversation with my family yesterday. Like your friend Alan Mandela he sounds you know, he's black. Just me. He's Alan's black. So what are you saying? Are you saying you have no white friends? I'm telling you reverse rainbow. Three, three, the okay they're fully white half Spanish half something black Puerto Rico. The white like we want to ask for DNA tests like you got to get to color your blood known white. I met two of our met the parents the other one I think her mom died like when she was young, but the parents away I didn't ask them like hey, what how much weight are you? I'm curious. I'm curious to know if they listen to the show. Okay, hey, yo as always slandering white folks now the reason why the reason why we're cool because that's landed him right into the face and they say I understand it because it because it because not slander like I'm being honest with you. And like people like they people feel uncomfortable about white people because they don't want be honest with white people. They don't have discussion with them. The joy included Mikey she and those three. No, the mic might make for damn shout out to Mike you see, you see Mike he didn't even consider you a friend. That's fucked up. I'm not I'm not consider Mike White. Okay. Well, he is though. But he is white. I know. I don't look at my like, look at his white man. Like, Mike Mike's happen to be white. Like I'm thinking about colors that I don't trip out about it people, they put too much fucking energy into it, man, you like who you like, here's the thing. I understand people like, you know, you need more white friends. But you got to be around white people to have white friends. And most of the people you work with, even if they're white, you're not really friends with the people you work with. Some? Sure. But not all. Not all of them can come by, not all of you can kick it with most of the time is really like a work acquaintance kind of thing. And I've worked in a lot of white spaces, but I haven't really been cool with all those white people. Speaking of speaking of work, I was like going to work and I'll be on them work zooms. And there was a speaker, she was a, I forget her name of the top black lady, successful lady. And she said that, you know, she hears a lot of white people saying, you know, when they're pleading their case about not being racist, that they're colorblind that they don't see color, right? And she's like, Yo, I want to challenge you to see color, because that's part of the problem. You know, I'm saying the fact that you know, sometimes we don't see color, we don't see the fact that the absence of color. Does that make sense? The fact that you don't see color, you see the absent you don't see the absence of diversity. And they said or maybe I'm gonna misquote her I'm saying it right. But it made sense when she was saying it. You know, I'm saying like, well, I don't see color. And we're in a room full of white people, let's say and only one black person, maybe you should start seeing color. So you can see that, you know, diversity is missing. I hate that shit, man. Yes, the fuck you do. We all see color, right? We all see color. But you've heard people say that right? Like, oh, I don't see color. It that I'm colorblind shit. Yeah, you might not see it. But I can tell by your reactions and the things that you do you actually see color. If you say certain things about police interactions with people of color. You quote black on black crime, or you took something about drugs or hip hop, or clothes or hairstyles or whatever. So the term was the term she coined was instead of being colorblind be color brave. See, now I gotta be color brave. Anyways, yo, instead of being colorblind be color brave. That was that was the quote, I thought that was that was different. You can't be color brave around people who are cowards. But I guess he was saying that about white people, you know, I'm saying like, don't be colorblind, be color brave. Like, don't be afraid, you know, I mean, I hire this black person, this brown person in Spanish, you know, I'm saying and that type of aspect. And that's logical. And that's true. But the cool thing is that, it's hard to do that in a room full of cowards. Like when you're the brave one. If it's six people, they all have equal control, and you don't want to stand it out. And other five people still got more control, they still vote you you like you got to try to find an influence and sway them, yes. But just doing that, like, you know, we need to hire more people of color. Making a statement like that doesn't necessarily serve a purpose. But if you could feed someone's interest that we have this candidate graduated top of their class, they want the best we've ever had the score off the charts, the interviewer great, I think we should have them what's going on with them? I mean, I mean, I've started them. There were other African American, but I mean, everything else about them is literally outstanding. Like they can be an asset to this company. You got to sell them to people, you can't just tell them, you know, we need to do this doesn't work with those kind of people. You gotta gotta feed to their better interest. This person helps me advance my own cause and especially in a business realm, if it helps me become more profitable, you're more likely going to hire that person, but the color brave part of that person going into that room and be able to formulate a message that speaks to them. Right, right while trying to get us involved. Although the

Jeff:

lady's name is Mellody Hobson, by the way, look her up. I would like to have her on the show one day eventually, but yeah, she coined that phrase, be colored Brave not colorblind, but you'll check it speaking of trouble I have and Is that racist segment and also have no ghetto word which one you want first?

Anthony:

It's good to get away he's speaking a racist I got some shit for you. But what you want to get a word to go the word so it's the new ghetto word of the word of the winner. We've said it multiple times already in this show. And the word is fire. F I R E. It is the new word for hot. According to the Urban Dictionary, it is a it's an it's a colloquial adjective used to describe something pleasant. Attractive or nice. That girl is fire. You know that song is fire. We say it all the time. All rappers say all the time. That perfume fire. Like I wonder how a woman will react to a yo yo Perseus fire this way? Thank you like yeah, no that's that's that STD I gave you those burning? Like my lap is smoking like hey, that is what you think it is? Because I mean fire just works because it is it is because there's some powerful about fire Yes, but because cuz I guess hot got played us it just had to just get more specific like fire. Then like yo, that shit is combustible fun like what? I should you know you know what I'm tired of facts are facts facts. I hate facts because there's nothing factual about it when people say it's a fucking it's that's not gonna pick and I hate that that is Oh my god. People say that all the time. They like the Knicks is going to be only with the trade Randall and RJ the star will tell him we're gonna be in the playoffs and like facts X Wing. Oh, Gary, we ain't doing shit. And my bald head facts. Do I have beard facts? It should be shipped this actually in front of you and you know, verifiable? Yeah, verifiable. That's the whole point of being effect. It has to be verifiable. You're not stating a fact you're sitting in a ping and then calling it facts. It's not a contract. And that sums up the generation that we're living in now. That's what society is now a bunch of opinions being labeled as facts. I can't I can't wait to your biggest real great. You just Oh, you're talking to old man. Yeah, my. And my day, we was breakfast and spitting turntables. We weren't just pressing no button to do it. We started when you start seeing this shit like that. We're doing a victory lap and who you are officially Oh, that's what we would do. Like, y'all be smoking out whatever it is like you know what it is? You smoke that shit to grandma. That's gonna be us in Episode 300 A coach Oh ALLAH. Give a drink. Like what's wrong? My sciatica? Well, you got fired again. No. Thank God me either. I know people that do Oh, it sucks. My cousin does I'd be like, Ah, my cousin Nickleby text me. She got that bad sciatic nerve. You just put

Jeff and Ant:

people's business out there it's like the second week in a row you pulling people's business out? My cousin she talks about all the time I wasn't talking about last week. He was like yeah, my friends such and such he was a transgender. Like, and she

Anthony:

didn't say the name because it's she was tricky with them. They're not trying to be on treat for nobody. The most famous transgender is what Jenner Caitlyn Yeah, yeah. And and now the swimmer on the LEA Thomas now it's not gonna last long. You're gonna live on graduate soon. It's gonna be it's gonna be a dub. I'm still trying to get a transgender on the show, by the way. Like answer some questions. You're not it's gonna be super hard the problem it is because the problem is as asking questions just out of curiosity. They still gonna feel like it you know, like they're being attacked. Or asking the questions and not sounding you know, I'm saying derogatory or offensive. Where I'm not even coming from a place of anger like that or hate. I think part of it just really the danger of like, people will kill you now. Just because you're gay. They will definitely kill you. If they think I know that you're transgender. If we just live in a fucked up society. Enjoy man Cook. I'm asking you a question. And don't this is not race. Don't take it as a racist. Right. So I'm taking the camera off. I'm gonna mute my mic. I'm gonna listen. Go ahead. It's just a question you ask. Again, is gonna sound racist, but just hear me out. Do you because I've never seen you do you eat bananas? Or do you like or do you enjoy bananas? The actual fruit? Hell yeah. I love bananas. Now. Okay. That sounds great. That's correct. No, but I'm going I intend to get like okay because this leads into my Is that racist? Black Virginia high school teacher Sue's 10th grade student who left bananas in his classroom doorway for months. Okay. Joelle Mungo, a history teacher at Maryville High School for 21 years, said he had no Ever seen such an act in his teaching career? Yo, check this out. How long have you been teaching? 20 plus years. Okay.

Jeff:

He said he first noticed a banana outside his classroom door on October 2021. Then he found a banana placed on the same spot at least one once a month. Someone left a banana at my door the banana was perfectly placed in the doorway. So he told the news. After the sixth instance, the teacher reported the incident to the school administration who found out through the surveillance footage that the person responsible was one of his students from the 10th grade. After contacting a student's parents, the pupil was put on a two day suspension and removed from his class. He only got two days suspension.

Anthony:

And we'll get 10 for slapping somebody she Will Smith. Me get sidetracked. Will Smith got a harsher penalty than some of the motherfuckers that was rushed in the Catholic capitol building beat. They were trying to overturn a government that was like 32. Good, you good. Anyway. Get out. I gave the student a chance to come clean. I asked him Hey, did you do this? He said no. He played dumb. No idea what you're talking about. I said, Okay, go down to the assistant principal. I'm the only black teacher he has. He has six other teachers no other teachers were involved. Bananas are used as a prop to mock black people by racist who likened them to monkeys. He said he was highly upset and had to take the next day off.

Jeff:

She it's 2022 just to have some type of hate crime is absolutely ridiculous. I was sick and it's time to take a stand and just let people know it will not be tolerated. I know I'm not tolerating it. You have to speak up. You can't allow it to go on because then it will just continue to go on. Oh, no, man. Like I said, I've never seen no black person to eat no banana. You said you'd like bananas. I like bananas. So I'll put them in my shakes. That student raw. Raw? Yeah, I'm saying like actual bananas. Yeah, not, you know? Yeah.

Anthony:

Okay, cool. What you go cook bananas. I mean, we cook the plantains. It tastes like banana Foster. Like is cooked. Like for bananas. Anyway, is this incident racist? No. To teach yourself how to hear. There's not so I could just leave bananas at your door every day. What I'm gonna say why the fuck would you do like a bottle of bananas? Because like Kid is racist, bro. Because the little banana. Okay, why is he

Unknown:

leaving bananas? Why is he leaving bananas though and then denies it the fact that he denied it when they got them on camera tells you something

Anthony:

is Hey, man. Let me teach little game about racism. Racism is only racism when you can make it either effective or funny. See leaving them banana their fists me like you know what? Fuck it. I need more potassium. I need the banana. You feel if Apple there? I'd probably eat the apple or whatever. Now if you left like the banana, they would like a little monkey like, alright, just racist. Or if you gave me the banana, like you went to my desk every day for the banana decimal. That's racist. That's a little extreme. Right? But like it because because because I know and see the connotation racism in itself is extreme. So to think that someone left a banana or some sort of tripping out about the shit I'm like, and a whole thing is that I got a bunch of other students to teach. If Why am I if this kid's racist, right? Why am I giving this one little recess kid owes energy? Why would I do that? Like I fucking man, like, I'm just gonna throw away the banana. Like, I'm not here to save you. I'm here to teach these kids the best of my ability. And also, in some ways, I'm sure I've had to take two days off. Nick, please stop. You ain't gotta do that shit. You know, take the banana throw it in the garbage is put there every day you ask him what the hell he's doing it. He says no, he plays dumb. Okay, then a banana stop after that you already know who did it didn't it is what it is become just tossed with a banana. Or you find someone else to give the shit to Oh, you put in your own fucking chick, man. It's done. It's took me like racism has to be like, especially when it's like shows racism, they have to be spectacles for you to really get them off. The Klan wouldn't have been as effective if they just like, put like go sheets out somebody's window, you had to like burn across to really get to fucking point across. So some idiot leaving a banana out there. It's just stupid. If you leave a banana in front of my friend, I'm not going to eat because I'm like, for one, it sits on the ground and like two who dropped the banana. And the whole thing that he's tripping out about this and making an issue out of it does doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. And it's the part about racism, we're gonna have to pay much attention much more until it directly affects you. And I don't think it directly affected him. The fact that you brought it to attention, you didn't create a conversation. You didn't try to change his kid's life or you try to really get to the depth of it. He got suspended. You took a couple days off. Nothing came of it. Nothing. This whole last thing nothing happened. So you got a day off. The teacher got a little vacation. And everybody from time to time should take like a mental health day like do you? Yeah. How many times? Like like What's your schedule like my I'm is really like once every six weeks not much is just random bro my my mind's going to start being more random and most times we're gonna take a day off

Jeff and Ant:

like right now I literally have no scheduled days off until September when I am taking a day off in September

Anthony:
