But I'm gonna start running them by you like, you know, and you like this person? Fine.

Anthony:

Whatever it is that? Yeah. Every city did the same thing that is Oh, peace and freedom.

Mikey:

Oh, yeah. I have not done it. But I have. I'm on my way to doing it. At some point. I have a bunch of friends that are that are big into that medicine world. I was just in a friend last weekend who's on? It scares me a little bit. I'll say we'll talk about it. I mean, yeah, I asked her Do you like DMT all those different things like DMT you like basically you can't see for the whole time you're on it like you go blind. But you also go to this other place and you're able to kind of sort through a lot of things in a way that you can't, you know, in a normal way. And I don't know, man, like I'm very comfortable with psilocybin with mushrooms. But I like the idea of needing someone there because you might choke on your own vomit or something. Yeah, it feels a little Olympic level for me. I'm scared of it.

Jeff:

As opposed to like put supposed to, like put you in front of your biggest fears. You put them shits in all your dissolves and it puts you in front of you bro and it's supposed to be like, a very scary but like life changing experience? I don't know.

Mikey:

For sure. Well, due to not you know, I've been in talk therapy for years and my dad's a psychologist and, you know, I just I think that I it doesn't work talk therapy doesn't really work for me because I can kind of like weave a story or kind of like lie a little bit in sessions and like, tell the person what they need to hear. Were like, you know, it sounds like with these drugs or these medicines. It's like you're basically like, you're forced to confront whatever's going on and I don't feel like I have many demons but I don't know that I'm gonna like pooped my pants in front of some stranger on iOS go because I confronted all these things that I'm like, Oh God, I didn't know I was totally broken but then bam Yeah, we'll do it on a on an episode altogether. Imagine

Anthony:

Fuck no. I wouldn't sit here talking to you all I'm confronting my demons the fuck.

Mikey:

We are your demons. So you'd be

Anthony:

like the demons are sitting on a couch like Hello, we're here like

Mikey:

now. Now we have to talk about the new jaw rule.

Anthony:

Yeah, fungi rule.

Jeff:

We started the show, man. Start it. Before we get Rule. Let's rest in peace to Bill Russell.

Mikey:

Yeah. NBA Hall of Famer let's he lived. He lived right near me. He was live in Seattle.

Jeff:

He's the winningest player in sports history. He was the first black coach. Where was he? Like, 88 years old? Yeah, yeah, he was a philanthropist. Like, you know, once you started digging into his story, like he did a lot. Yeah, it's crazy. And people don't really consider him to go obviously you're not gonna put him over like Michael Jordan and stuff. But he should be in a discussion when you talk about like the top fives or the top 10s of all time. You got to put Bill Russell loved it.

Mikey:

What do you say what you said he's winning this not top scorer anything?

Jeff:

No, no, he has the most championships of any player in sport. Most championships. Okay, gotcha. Yeah. We won like 11 when he was 11 championships and like, 12 years.

Anthony:

13 years on my dad,

Mikey:

who do you play for?

Anthony:

The Celtics? Okay.

Mikey:

I know what he looked like, but I'm not. As you know, I don't come on the show for my sports knowledge. But I just I knew more about him from his like, from his social justice stuff like around civil rights and everything. I mean, he was he was with it.

Anthony:

Yeah, very much was it they had with the Cleveland? I can't remember. But it was him. Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown. I came up with a fourth person. But they all kind of like, we're like, Santa. They sit behind Eileen. It's choice not to join the Vietnam War. Okay, yeah. Yeah, and then in the finals, MVP.

Jeff:

They have the Yeah, that's gonna say the MVP is named after finals MVP. Russell award. Shout out to our patrons.

Anthony:

Oh, Jim Brown Bill Russell Lew Alcindor. So Kareem Abdul Jabbar boys, cream and Muhammad Ali. Yeah, amazing. Okay, sorry. patrons. We love you. Thank you

Jeff:

which so let's go which I got going on and make sure the guests man promote your ship name and by the way before we forget,

Mikey:

for sure. Yeah. So we have you know, Mikey and Ren eat in is the name of our show. And we have a our shows about food. Our show is about life, or shows about lots of stupid off color jokes. But we have, you know, we mostly talk about food. And so we have an episode on this week about lactation and about breastfeeding and formula, basically about babies that can the first food that you eat, and how important that is for kind of shaping the way that you eat for the rest of your life. So we have a person from who's a lactation and feeding consultant on the show and we have a lot of fun. Yeah, my life is basically about making babies right now. My wife is 23 weeks pregnant. And so we are kind of we're trying to get through all this heat of the summer we're swimming all the time because Wi Fi is extra hot and just wants to be in the water. But life is good, man. We're just recording episodes every week and trying to stay as cool as possible.

Jeff:

Your first food you eat is tidies today.

Mikey:

It's not I hope they're not eating the Teddy's that would be that'd be really bad. Bad for them.

Jeff:

My son tried to Yeah, fucking Teddy bro. Biting the shit out. Yeah. See, aggressive? Blood was good. We're not anymore. Obviously. He's five now. Yeah, at the beginning, he was just biting them. She was blood was coming out these

Mikey:

Yeah. We talked to you know, our, the our guest talks a lot about that. And kind of what are some of the reasons for some of those things like talking about tongue tie and some things around? I don't know just why breastfeeding is difficult. And then also like, you know, the formula shortage that happened last year. Like, it's just difficult to feed your kids and it shouldn't you know, it shouldn't have to be something that people stress out so hard about or have to pay so much for.

Jeff:

But yeah, there's several things I want to get into in this episode. I want to get into those two idiots that will try to rob the smoke shop. We will get to that later. There's a lot of shit to dissect there. We got to talk about there is no there isn't really. There is though, because you know, I mean, we'll get to it.

Mikey:

Like that. We're gonna talk. We're gonna talk about a video on a podcast. We'll do the play by play

Jeff:

on an audio podcast. Yeah. I know and wants to talk about Irv Gotti coming on drink chance, his little beef with Ashanti. I want to talk about Tyler Perry a little bit bro. He could do that though. We're gonna get to that show because these chicks fill in and title and they don't own none of that material and they want to feel entitled to shit. Just like Elise. I'm still not over Kelly's we're going to talk about her to a little bit

Mikey:

more. Ashanti's the love of my life. So let's just not we can't talk too much shit about Oh, baby.

Anthony:

Right. Love her life too.

Jeff:

Oh, Brittney Griner, though. Let's get into Brittney Griner. She just got nine years. Are we going to trade her for this fucking arms dealer for the Deaf American killing motherfucker?

Mikey:

I mean, I mean, don't you? Don't you think that the nine years is I mean, it seemed to me like they gave her nine years they knew it. was like overboard, and they're doing it to try to flex so that they can make a trade. Because I mean, it's nine years for she had the smallest amount of weed and the vape pen like out here, and they're doing a good job of gay and black. Yeah,

Jeff:

but like I talked about this last week. That doesn't seem like a fair trade though, we're gonna give you one of America's Most Wanted, right? Who's a guy who's admittedly said that he's going to kill Americans the first chance he gets, we're going to hand them over to you so you can continue to use him as a hitman. And you're going to give us back our WNBA player.

Anthony:

Draft compensation

Jeff:

needed. I'm gonna need every American I'm gonna need every American Yeah, God, bro. And I need them on the plane on the way here first before we even hand your guy over.

Mikey:

I mean, it's it's a hostage situation for sure. Like, and it's and it's about that, you know, it doesn't really matter about matter about kind of level of who they are in the world. It's like the Americans are always going to look out for our own. But yeah, I mean, it's like, he's a bad dude, what she did when she's an American citizen, she shouldn't be held over there. But what she did is nothing. But at

Jeff:

the same time when you're when you're going to another country, you got to be cognizant of what their laws are, bro. You know, I mean, just because marijuana is legal in California, where there's a lot of sugar. In some countries, you can't even bring Tylenol, bro. You know what I'm saying? So you can't just hop on a plane because you're going to Russia who's in the middle of a war, and you're gonna have some fucking marijuana with you and think, Oh, I'm America wasn't a WNBA

Mikey:

it was just the cartridges Right? Like for him? Right? And didn't she? Sounds like she didn't even know that they were with her. Like they were just like in her kit or whatever. I mean, it made her just don't fight with drugs over international boundaries. Obviously, that's an obvious thing. But I mean, the way that she's been punished, I feel like it has more to do with flexing to Americans and the fact that she's a lesbian, black woman.

Jeff:

Maybe? And also,

Mikey:

what do you think? And

Jeff:

don't go to Russia anyway, like, why is she going to Russia? I mean, I get it, she needs to try to make a side gig. And so they're in the middle of a war right now you don't want to fuck with them. I'm sure there's other ways that you can make extra money just here, bro. Do some autograph signings or something.

Anthony:

You know that tonight, you pay for things. ECAD Arena in Russia, like they pay the woman up to 20,000 hours a month. She was getting more than she made here. In a month in which she got her yearly salary. Right? Like I get it and I understand but there's something that's different about it. And if I gotta go here and get this money, because I'm not getting proper money at home, it's a whole different kind of thing. Which makes me rewind back just a little bit. We want to bring up the name of woman named Audrey Lorber in winter who Audrey Lord burns. Who I don't we don't know who our developers are deliver from is a young little white woman who was 19 years old and she was arrested and found smuggling 17 grams a week. And Russia Barcelona family vacation now. She was found guilty of that. And two months of detention pay 50 100 rubles and she was in home GET THE FUCK

Jeff:

Wow. So this is turning into an Is that racist segment?

Anthony:

Like she's a political prisoner. Like this is high profile for them. They want to get themselves in the news. So look, I'm not sure she's not going to be over that long. I guarantee she'll be home for Christmas. I put any amount of money on that. That number. Yeah, number because the whole thing you can't do a prisoner shamed unless you like you know, a prisoner.

Mikey:

Right? Well, you think she's gonna be home without doing the exchange? You think she'll love free?

Anthony:

No, they'll do the exchange, but they'll get it they'll get it in a way before Christmas. Okay, WAV,

Mikey:

and you think but you think they'll exchange for I don't know what his name is. But this guy was the war criminal basically picked

Anthony:

about it was gonna be we load a war with um, yeah, it was cage.

Mikey:

I love that. Oh, really? Yeah. Did I want to be that guy so badly?

Anthony:

Yeah, it's based on him. That's the guy that they're the Lord of War that movie that can

Mikey:

penetrate and so there's there's a couple of clips that I have that are like basically pulled up on YouTube like constantly just when I need like a pick me up. And one of them is what's the movie called the gun running movie with Jonah Hill, Dogs of War word, war or dogs. And you remember the scene when he goes to buy weed and like the dudes not there. And then those guys basically like steal 300 bucks from him or whatever. And then they like show him a nine and they're like, you know, back off, and he kind of laughs What money? Yeah, and then he laughs and walks across the street and goes out of the windows trunk and gets like a submachine gun. I don't know why but I watched that I watched that clip like three times a week just to be like oh yeah, that's awesome. Like

Anthony:

he just shooting willy nilly in the middle of the project. No one can totally

Mikey:

Yeah, totally fucked up. But I do want to be a gun runner. If anybody can help me out with that just reach out to me. Let's eat at Mikey and ren.com helped me run guns.

Anthony:

If you get an email a Russian man do not do not you don't know me Don't call me. I don't know what's going on. You guys

Mikey:

if you want to. You can cut this part out of the show. But have you seen the leave

Anthony:

it there but I'm not gonna be a gun. Ron, I know Jeff, Jeff not built for that kind of like that. Have you

Mikey:

guys seen these emails that I've been getting? Have you guys seen the emails that I've gotten from the I don't know who it is? If it's Russian or not, but that are like about watching porn. I've been, I've been putting them up on my Instagram.

Anthony:

Told me to read it to you. Please, please, please read. Alright,

Mikey:

so this is from Chris cow. If you yank your cucumber so hard, you might tear it off. Did you hear about it? I bet that when you splurge, you start to feel disgusted with yourself. To see how an adult is such dependent on handjob is funny, and at the same time, sorrowful. Have you ever thought how others individuals will feel when they see your disgusting habits? There are many articles about safety on the web nowadays, you got to read them and give attention to your web camera. Maybe I won't have been able to record a video clip with you if you took a little care of your safety. What are you giving your emails?

Anthony:

I don't I mean,

Mikey:

I don't give my emails to any like porn websites or anything. But I've been getting these emails probably once a month, and they all kind of sound the same and I just love them. They're my favorite thing. That's sorrowful.

Anthony:

You see my deep in front of your webcam? And you welcome?

Mikey:

Exactly. Why just like that. There's no ask. Like, he's not like I have this video of you and you need to give me $20,000 or so. I'm gonna like release it on the internet. It's just he just wants to tell me that like masturbating is not okay.

Jeff:

signed up to some porn newsletter. Like once a month. I went back to the month jerking off too much and destroy your dick.

Anthony:

If you're a good writer, right? I'd like to think so. You ever thought about writing erotica? No, I'm good. Be good at it. Do you? Veronica? May have because you could you could do them sheets and just do an e book online just make money like her Milky Way. That's not a bad idea. Exactly.

Jeff:

Hip Hop erotic one volume two I just had

Anthony:

to I mentioned the money he's like that's a good idea. Of course it is.

Jeff:

Would it be like some 50 shades loaded up? You can

Anthony:

do whatever you want to like say it's just an ebook. People download it and pay for it and you just got to type it and publish it but can't be that hard. Your writer

Mikey:

has a good idea and had he just immediately starts going and her milky white breasts? Yeah, loaded up like right like like like like like

Anthony:

you can't see like Dick You have like like his his throbbing Love Rocket some bullshit like that.

Jeff:

You gotta use poetic word get out. Exactly. That's that actually be could be the opening line. His Milky Way. What would you say?

Anthony:

caressing around his throbbing Love Rocket some bullshit. That would be the opening

Jeff:

line of the book.

Mikey:

Dropping throbbing Love Rocket is the name of our wedding band that we're putting together. There you go. Robbing loving a

Unknown:

rocket. A it's

Anthony:

gonna be like what did the floaty things where you put the air in it and they wave their arms around, but a man would have put a giant penis at like swings back and forth.

Mikey:

I mean, that would sell some used cars, man. No, fam. I'm

Anthony:

asking for 10% I'm giving you an idea to figure this shit out. Y'all go ahead make the money. I just want to find a fake.

Mikey:

Should we go on Shark Tank with us?

Anthony:

I'm sorry. I don't know if you allow.

Mikey:

It'll just be blurred out the whole time.

Anthony:

Like someone made a blurred floaty thing. We're asking

Mikey:

for $2.5 million for 6% of the company. It's a throbbing penis member.

Anthony:

know a lot of credit cash.

Mikey:

And you have to be a silent partner. Real quick, man. Yep.

Jeff:

How do you feel about Tyler Perry? He says that he's avoiding having to talk about race with his seven year old son. And he goes, I haven't had the conversation with Aman, because he's only seven and I want to hold out as long as I can. Perry shared, I don't want to tell him that there are people who will judge him because of the color of his skin. Because right now he's in school with other race with every race. And all these kids are in their purest form. When he describes his friends, he never defines them by race. So the moment he loses that innocence is going to be a very, very sad day for me. I know what's coming, because he's already asking some really tough questions. What I want him to be more than anything is somebody who sees injustice speaks out against it and affects change. I'm what I'm at a totally adorable.

Mikey:

I mean, it's it is adore and it's like you want to preserve your kids in a sense for as long as you can and not show them that the world is fucking tragic and ugly. I don't know. What do you think? Yeah.

Anthony:

I think that he's probably get that shit out of the way now. Yeah, okay. Because the thing is that you can duck racism. For that shit for so long can be like, well, I'm going to try to veer away from all this shit because you're around young kids, you're all different races and so on so forth. The kids aren't a problem their parents are. They go home when they hear that Shouldn't they see it as she didn't hear him talk about it, and they already forming their particular ideas upon it. So once you get to it now you're confused about like, why does this person like me because of Color My Skin like, Nah, you kind of kind of get that reached out the way. Sooner than later it, it actually makes your life better. It doesn't make your life like harder, because like, you know how to handle it more than anything else, like, people aren't going to like you just because of the color of your skin. And I mean, that's a simple way you can kind of tell any child or any person because we're all especially a person of color. You're going to go through that one way or another. Well, definitely in this country. Yeah. But the thing that you're going to kind of realize that parent, and I think, Mike, you're going to learn this. No matter what you do, there's certain things that as much as you try to hide your children from it, they're going to find out about it one way or another. Now, that doesn't mean just up and introducing your kid to porn at five years old. That's a cry, don't do that. But more in a sense, like racism, bigotry, violence, things of this nature. Like say you give kids toys, they play with dolls, they play with guns, and they don't understand the socio socio economic means and reasons behind why they're doing what they're doing. And you'll need to break that down to them all the time. Because a bit a little bit much for the tiny little brains, but you got to make them aware that you know, this is for this, these do this. Yeah, these are that they want to go deeper than you can but it's a learning process. And the sooner you are in a process and to find it out now, because like say when people go to college, they run into that often well, I lived in this town all my all my life and when he and so he's like people I didn't like what is this? Like? Sure people chose not to expose, you'd have to be ready prepared for these things going to come later in life because I'm not a teacher, very hard lesson. I commend what he's doing. But you could probably get that shit cracking more solidly, right? Well, and

Mikey:

it just it does feel like there's like that pressure cooker mentality, right? It's like, let off the pressure, like, like, one little conversation at a time. It doesn't have to be some big, like, sit down moment and talk about it. But like, I don't know, it seems like there's a fair amount of good, like kids books and things right now that kind of address racism and that address, like, you know, kind of just a lot of the systemic stuff. So I you know, I'm hoping to really dig into that with my kid. Obviously, it's different. I'm gonna have a white kid. So I appreciate the the sentimentality that he has around it. But where does Tyler Perry live LA?

Jeff:

I think he's down. So wait. Yeah,

Anthony:

I think I have houses everywhere. So right

Mikey:

now that's true. But it's just like, Yeah, I mean, like, like, and it doesn't matter where he lives. I mean, there's there's racism everywhere. So it's like, I just I would I hate the idea that the kid might not know what we're talking about. And then some big thing happens and it's like, Holy fuck, it destroys him or traumatizes him, you know, but I do like the idea of what Tyler Perry's you know, thinks he's doing but I don't know. It seems to me like he's kind of setting them up for disaster.

Anthony:

Are you guys leaving the sex unknown? No, it's a boy. It's a boy. Oh, yeah.

Jeff:

What? He's gonna need to know Jefferson, Anthony.

Anthony:

and I are going to pick up your phone looking eyes like, look, you're a white man in America, you're going to be just

Mikey:

fine. You're gonna be good. No, my main thing is, it's not whether he's gonna be okay. It's Don't be a fucking monster. Don't be an asshole.

Jeff:

The minute you come out the womb your credit is 800

Mikey:

I'm getting known for him right when it comes out.

Jeff:

But now going back to the like, early on wifey. You know, she made it a point to like, when we were buying toys for angel that we would give them like the black characters, right? Because everybody everybody know seriously. And you know, she emphasized this early on, because everybody would always give him the white characters. You know, I'm saying the Superman The Batman. Well, yeah, I mean, all the toys were always white. And I remember my wife telling me like, Yo, nobody's ever giving him black dolls. You know what I mean? to only give him all the white ones you don't I'm saying I don't want him to think that you know, only that the white characters are somehow you don't I mean, more valuable or more important or, or greater and bigger than the black characters. So we would always buy him Black Panther we would buy him if we bought him wrestlers. He would have like all the black wrestlers. You don't I mean, like every black wrestler, you know. And I was like, Yeah, that's a good point. Awesome. Yeah, and I'm saying it because, I don't know. She felt like it was racist. Everybody was only giving him like the white toys. Like when you go into the toy aisle, and you see like the black wrestler and the white wrestler. Everybody was always grabbing the white wrestler, you know, I mean, are the white superhero by him this one.

Mikey:

You go into the toy aisle and like out of 100 toys. One of them is black or brown.

Jeff:

That's the one that stands out, but nobody grabs that one. They want it right, but they want to grab like,

Mikey:

unless you're a Barbie or whatever. Unless you're in Portland, where the amount of white kids that have black or brown dolls is outstanding. And you know cool and it's cool for like, I guess the idea of it, but you know, I don't know dude, it's Portland is the most performatively liberal place you've ever seen. And it's one think it's like, oh, the kid picked this dog because they wanted this doll. That's awesome. I think it's great. I think what it is, is a lot of parents like trying to show that they're like a great anti racist by buying the black Barbie doll or whatever it is. And, you know, I don't know if that helps if that makes the kid like, you know, be a little bit more comfortable with with being white and having friends who are black or whatever that might be. But it's to me, it just seems a little bit like I really

Jeff:

want to take a very brief break, I want to come back we got it. We want to talk about those stupid robbers

Anthony:

go ahead and just implied racism, but I think we're talking about with regards to the children. There was I'm using my brain there was a study that kind of helped, versus a brand education, where they, they interviewed children, and they gave them a white doll and a black doll. And they said Which doll is the good one? And yeah, the majority of them pointed out the white one. I said which one is the bad one the majority and pointed out the dark one. Again, like I said, their children. So it's hard to say like, you know, this is going to influence them to make sure like you try to avoid it. But like I said, your your family, your social environments on the phone. These are things that do affect it. So like say I come in and what he's doing but like I said, history shows that sometimes those long lines are drawn outside the classroom that makes the fair things happen.

Mikey:

Yeah, for sure.

Jeff:

But that's learned behavior. Like if you ask my son who's your favorite superhero? His favorite superhero was fucking The Incredible Hulk. He's green. You know, I'm saying if you ask him like his favorite wrestlers, his favorite wrestler number one is John Cena. But then the rest of the list like three and two to five, they're all colored. He has like Hispanics on the list. He has blacks on the list. You know, I mean, so John Cena would be the one white Yeah. And of the his top five superheroes. He likes black panther. He likes the Incredible Hulk. Right? Like really like seeing that aspect?

Anthony:

And if you guys didn't have the influence, do you think that his choices would have been different?

Jeff:

Probably if we were if he was only seeing you know, white characters and white toys. Yeah.

Anthony:

And now a commercial break. Yeah. They represent a culture to represent like, the culture podcast.

Jeff:

These fucking dumb as Rob has come into the smoke shop, it looked like a hookah shop or a weed shot. I don't know what the fuck it was it had tobacco in their joints, edibles, hookahs, whatever one of them smoke, it's like

Mikey:

one of those places where like the entirety of the inside of the store is like mirror material like It's like reflective mirror material. And there's like, shelves with rolling papers and shit like that on its

Jeff:

head. Right? Little two white boys come in with a with a mask on just like the winter hoodies on. Whatever. Yeah, the Asian dude. Behind the counter. He's like, Yo, why are you guys wearing these masks? Man? They're like being real fucking summer, right? Yeah, real nervous and real suspicious. One of them has like a backpack on or some type of fanny pack. He's like, Yo, can you guys just leave? And he's like, Oh no, we're just gonna grab this or the guy grabs Whatever it looks I don't know what it was. Was it like a jar or something? And the guy's telling him he's like yo, just take the money but give me back the coins. That was the funniest shit to me of the whole video. Yeah for sure give me the coin he was like take the money but give me the coins first of all want to know what did he need those coins for bro? Like is he going to like an old school arcade

Mikey:

needs or tokens the god and I'm about to head up Dave and Busters later

Anthony:

yeah, you have no idea how to have variable changes like ever go into a store then they got to break open a new joint for you. Oh for sure. Like come on now. Come on. It's going to be tolls and yeah, no tolls or whatever. Oh, like if you pay someone's like, like it comes up like 20 like $12.07 And again 93 cent in blank fuck. You've been looking in your pocket trying to get changed get even one that's why you decoding man you gotta bring change but

Jeff:

for those who haven't seen the video go look for I'm not gonna post the blink because it's probably gonna get deleted anyway. But second is probably a little bit too graphic. But I could do a quick Google search robbers getting stabbed up or something. I don't know. The point is from like, the past week, rabbit hole, like 10 resume previous hours. But anyway, so the the guy at the counter, he goes over to the his cash register his computer slash whatever. And I'm thinking right away. I'm thinking okay, he's gonna probably press one of those emergency buttons or something. Nah, right. He was nonchalantly grabbing a knife. I didn't even notice that shit. At first. I had to watch the video like three times before I even caught it. So today Yeah, totally. So the guy grabs the tip jar tries to run and then stops at the door. I guess there's other boy calls. I'm like, yo, Tommy, whatever his name was come back. And he's like, Yo, dude, man, just chill, man. Just take the money, whatever, whatever. And then when they start trying to reach over the counter, right? That's when shit got real.

Mikey:

While the dude jumps over the counter, one of them jumps over the other one just

Jeff:

reached and in ran like a bit and saw that the dude wasn't fucking around.

Mikey:

The jumping over the counterpart for me is kind of the key moment where things go the hectic because it's like, if you're breaking that wall, you're jumping over behind the counter. That to me is like where you can start talking about self defense. And the dude's got a big it's a like a six inch knife that gets a proper knife that could like you kill somebody just

Jeff:

start shank and do it immediately and not randomly he like he was well versed in shank and people like he knew he like he knew how to stab properly he was just stabbing them in the back and the legs and the back mat times and you can hear them the wildest part

Mikey:

that you said

Jeff:

the wildest part is when you hear the damn kid and I'm hesitant to call him a poor kid you know I'm saying because I don't want to act like I'm sympathizing with the fucking criminal. But you hear him saying like, Oh my God, he's stabbing me I'm dead. I'm dead and he just collapses while the dude is just I mean if he didn't die he severely injured broke Critical Condition he's

Mikey:

super injured. I mean the one the one that kind of the so I so we were talking about this on text and I was saying how I was like it's there's like the guys didn't have any weapons they stole like nothing and are very little versus the fact that he jumped over the thing is kind of arguable but you know, self defense isn't automatic. Like you have to prove self defense you have to prove that your life is in danger. And that dude like looked like he knew how to handle his business with a knife. And then the thing that kind of like you know, he stabbed in the leg like kind of non lethal places, but he also stabbed him like kind of around like the kidney and then eat the last that last stab was like through the trap well, and it was through like down this way which like you can very easily hit someone's lungs and cause like a pneumothorax and kill somebody like super easily so I was like, you know self defense maybe but he like he went after those dudes like they deserved it for sure. But

Jeff:

then the one dude runs like a bitch leaves his boys behind for dead and the only reason I think this topic I wanted to discuss is because when I go into the comments, I saw the video on Twitter and then when you go into the comments you realize like oh shit what the fuck people actually feel like this? Let me read you one of the comments because the My first reaction when I saw the video I laugh just like Anthony laugh but then I was like ah, that's what you get. I bet your you guys are never going to rob again. Right? That's my initial reaction. But then when you go into comments people actually feeling sorry for these robbers people are being sympathetic to them. The one thing I

Mikey:

will say is those those dudes seemed like the least threatening policies like they come in to like we're like thinking about robbing this place. Oh man we like ran out of the country club. They just look a couple wieners

Anthony:

before you read the comic if the guy died I just want to hold up and get some form

Mikey:

he doesn't know what that song is

Jeff:

so insensitive. I guess no sensitivity at this point. No. Because when I when I say at the video his first reaction was a big task. Ah

Anthony:

you you play stupid games you win stupid prizes. Your price with the knife end of an agent man stabbed and you want to begin the book? I get mad about this shit. It's just what happens you know how many people have tried to rob liquor stores end up getting shot because you played a stupid game. They get the thing is that the dude was he was he was overly kind to them. Yeah, he said just take it right that's it just take it and go. He wasn't gonna stop nobody even press no long ticket leaf going back to business life is good. They just had to go further. They wanted to play the stupid game a little bit further. They won this very stupid prize but let me hear these people. Dumb as comments.

Jeff:

I just got one comment I want to read Should I even say the person's Twitter handle?

Anthony:

Or is that late? Now we can get a handle up? We hit a dumb this

Jeff:

person said fuck I get it. Dude never should have been robbing the place. But is this legal for a store owner employee to do this? If someone is robbing your business do you have the right to use deadly force? I don't know if I would call this self defense. No horse in the race. I'm just curious. Yeah, once he jumped over the shit I think it's self defense. Especially if it's your shop like if you're the fucking owner. Yeah, I think you have the right to you know man do what you got to do. Yeah, to prevent people I mean you are worst one of them. The dude had like a backpack you don't know what's next right?

Mikey:

Sure. Maybe Yeah, no, it's this is the this is the hard part. And this is the part that I said I was like, I'm looking out for the store and we're like, you know this is why most people have bats or something that's not like a put you know not like a directly life threatening weapon. Not only non leap There we go. But it's just because I mean that you can kill somebody easily but it just it was to me. I was like a good lawyer could could could get him run up for this because it's like, they didn't show they didn't display any weapons. Yes, they jumped the jumping over the counter I think is a big part for sure. But I also just think their court system is fucking racist. This is two white kids. They probably like maybe their parents have like, you know, money and a lawyer and stuff like a good lawyer could have argued this that like that he didn't they use too much force. I don't know. They deserved everything they got

Jeff:

I don't know, man. I don't know if the guy survived that shit answer, he's gonna be critically injured.

Anthony:

For sure. Okay, because here's the thing, and I hate when people say here's the thing. This literally just happened in New York a couple of months ago where some guy went to a bodega attacked the store owner and a store on stab them and people to outcry saying that they should let the store owner go, they dropped the charge against store and they got the guy on video going behind the counter and attacking the store owner and he stabbed and he killed the guy. Now this is what happens and this is what occurs now the guy with the comment about the whole you know, other other means and something else like that. I'm going to bring up two entities in the same place that happen to me in the past few months nothing nothing crazy like that. I went to the gun range let's say two months ago we'll stick with that I went there plus is empty so on so forth. You know just just a regular deck of guys coming there everything's cool this is what they do. They go in there they pay the price to go on about the way everything's fine the change of law in the state where you can have concealed carry I went there a month later places packed the the pamphlet of what you need to do how much does the course what you got to do X y&z it's all lined up on the front. This whole thing about like, you know, there's other means going back, like I've seen an increase of people all of a sudden they want to have a concealed carry thing in the state. Just because they want to carry it around what in the sense you really never needed before it's not an overly violent place anything to that degree, but now becomes a thing. So to make the story try to like sympathize with the Roberts. That the statement itself is an oxymoron sympathize with the Roberts. They're trying to take something why the fuck am I showing him sympathy? You just showed them the knife. That's all he needed to do. It was protecting his own, it was going about it the right way. So for people to get sensitive about it. When someone's obviously committing a crime. I don't understand justification. That's like saying, I you know, I saw some young woman get dragged into behind the dumpster somewhere. It didn't sound like Well, what was she wearing? Or what is she doing to deserve to be dragged behind a dumpster behind that man? Doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense to pull aside with the person that's the perpetrator. And this is dumb. Like said when he walked in there with fucking ski masks going and 90 degree weather the dude already knew what was up like I understand it's COVID in the streets but that's not a COVID math that is a ski mask and a ski wet and walking up in their eyes in their mouths. Yeah, they like fucking Walt and Jesse on breaking well

Mikey:

and it's and for me it's like you could be wearing a n 95 Mask and I will be able to identify you way less than if you had the stupid masks that they had on like I can identify you from that

Anthony:

I just wear a regular boy yeah he did it boy got the fuck out of dodge

Mikey:

they were also coming into right like they had they didn't know what they were not going to be making a big robbery like they were getting $200 for the shit maximum

Jeff:

and left with stab wounds on the jaw

Mikey:

oh fuck it yeah, let me read some more

Anthony:

Dragon dragon that's out in the meat wag give it some more comments

Mikey:

I don't know what the comments say and whatever like comment sections are the fucking the you know the darkest swamp of the internet but but for me it's like it's got more No no no but it's less it's for me it's less about like don't I don't feel sorry for those fucking idiots like whatever but for me it's like I just don't want that store owner to have like be defending his own shit and then has like you know like and then he ends up getting charged with like maybe killed the dude maybe gets into charging from charged for murder when he could have just scared I mean those guys were such cowards he could have scared them off with you know, a stiff fart and a beer and a bat.

Jeff:

The one common goal is this guy is going straight to jail unfortunately, zero threat to his life and was able to subdue the guy pretty quickly, but kept stabbing. I'm sure the fatal stab was one of the next shots where he was in full control of the thief. The way the kid was screaming he's stabbing me I'm dead I'm dead shit is tragic. You could hear the life leaving him What a terrible situation and then look they look like they uploaded a new video where he's actually he's actually he's actually No they haven't they uploaded a new video and I'll send that where he's standing over the guy that he stabbed up and I guess he's calling 911 And the guy you can hear him saying I'm sorry sir Don't let me die here. This wasn't my idea. And he's like, You know I believe that life and shit

Mikey:

Yeah, and it's yeah right.

Jeff:

He looked like a nerd as bitch as pushing that got coerced by his other boys to try to do some dumb shit.

Mikey:

I agree. You can you can tell that energy like when they walk in where was that was this in LA?

Jeff:

I have no idea that I'm curious to know that's also going to change things to state that it took place is going No, that's gonna change how it goes in court.

Anthony:

Wow, read that. Read that last comment again. Which one? The one about the whole the stabbing did the last one with the

Mikey:

life leaving. I saw him floating towards the heavens.

Jeff:

It said the way that kid was screaming he's stabbing me. I am dead. I'm dead. Shit is tragic. You could hear the life leaving him What a terrible situation

Anthony:

for the life leaving, okay, now I'm trying to find like little parts. We want to put this ebook of ours. And the whole thing. If you screaming I did. You're not dead. You're alive because you're screaming.

Mikey:

I'm like that. People don't tell him or that. That situation where the I can't remember. It was a cop or a firefighter but called 911 because he and his wife had eaten some weed brownies. And he was like, times moving so slowly. I think I'm dead. I'm dying. I'm dead. That's what it reminded me of. I heard the kids say I'm dad and I'm like,

Anthony:

You're alive and told. Yeah, you ain't dead. You just fucking Thank God you got your boy talking to do some dumb Hey,

Mikey:

and that's the thing. It's just like, just like you said, like stupid. I want to watch and play stupid games get stupid prizes. Like don't fucking Rob places don't be a dumbass.

Jeff:

Okay, so the moral of the story is, I mean, obviously don't rob places but it was the Asian man justified. And is he going to jail for this? And that those kids deserve getting stabbed up.

Anthony:

Because one of the kid with

Mikey:

a hard time hiring. One dispatcher says we couldn't get through COVID Busy COVID The kid has

Anthony:

come back from our lunch break. I mean, I think I'm gonna call him again. What's

Mikey:

gonna back my lunch break? Because if you go to those three questions is was he justified? I do think he was justified. Is he gonna go to jail? He might. Depends on how they how they flip it. And then what was the third question?

Jeff:

Did they deserve deserve that? Yeah,

Mikey:

I mean, you know, it's like, like, that was a fucking stupid thing. You get yourself killed so easily doing something like that? Did like did that I don't know if he deserved that level of stabbing. I don't know. Like if anything I think he should have in the dream world it's like you get your ass kicked and get kicked out of the store like to be stabbed like six or seven times for stealing like maybe eight bucks for the shit but whatever man he put himself in that situation he jumped over the counter so you get whatever comes to you. Yeah,

Anthony:

but that's the same argument someone says well, I'm gonna get somebody to shoot somebody in the leg it doesn't work that way if I pick this gun right supposed to die but it's not gonna mean right I'm gonna try Oh my god like I love these people. People idiots and all these people with all these shootings with fucking me like I saw the soldier in his body. He's screaming I don't want to die you're not dying yet man. The roll your little bloody hasn't finished fucking on my carpet

Jeff:

mop up on aisle four please get some blood you need a bucket and a mop you you might need more than just water right

Anthony:

so my slightly youth white boy

Mikey:

when it just isn't like the lightly tail is oldest time of like the dumb robbery right? Because it's like you know we're what you watch like a you know bank robbery movie where they're gonna steal like $50 million, or whatever. And it's all coordinated. No, these guys are just dumb asses that a probably trying to like get 20 bucks so they can score some something's a math. And they're like, I don't know this place looks like they might have money if you the best part for me is like if they had reached for the tail like if they'd gone to the cash register. That's a whole nother story. They literally were grabbing like I think it was like boxes of rolling papers or something like what the fuck you can do with

Jeff:

the man risked his life for $10 worth of joints and shed

Anthony:

some pre rolls for some pre rolls

Mikey:

and the end the dude you know and the store owners like just fucking take it bro like it's just leave me

Jeff:

the coin I really need this card

Anthony:

take the bills he Those are the words of a man who has been robbed no doubt no routine like my brothers take it. Like I'm not crapping out here. Well, this is like

Mikey:

people going to people wonder why like all the you know the weed stores here have like, you know a big ol bouncer dude that's like armed in front of the store. And it's like, it's not because of like, you know, the ocean's 11 Robbery that's happening. No, it's just some dumb ass is trying to do a smash and grab or just a grab and grab the card. Just curious. I

Jeff:

wonder if we can I wonder if we can somehow maybe reach out to this Asian gentleman and like try to get them on the show because I just have one. Like, what's what did you need those coins for? Like, what did what did he the points for? What is he using those coins? I'm serious.

Mikey:

Maybe Maybe they were collectible. Pogs or something? It was that he was showing off?

Jeff:

I was like, because he told them he was like, he was like, Yo, why don't you just you know, why don't you just guys get out of here and the guy was like, I think I'm just gonna take this tip jar. He grabs the tip jar and walk and tries to walk out and if for some reason returns. He's like, Dude, I usually take my money.

Mikey:

He's like, I'm washing I'm doing my laundry and washing my car later. I need those coins dude.

Anthony:

Like the world's best, like heads or tails player practice with practice coins like I can call it into yours and she's like, great. Oh, look man, it's like, like I've seen like I've like I've seen videos of guys walking into stores and putting paper bags on their heads waving a gun. I'm like, these people are still because could you gotta be you gotta be kind of stupid to knock off any kind of public place like it's weird. I don't want this to happen. So whoever hears do not get the product die. I've always wondered why people don't rob like McDonald's. Like it's registers right there. You

Jeff:

know, they got money, you know,

Anthony:

they got money. Right? But they go into liquor going to liquor stores, whatever old man has had that 38 behind that counter forever at if he's waiting to shoot somebody that's going to walk into a rock I've never understood that

Mikey:

and it will doesn't everyone doesn't McDonald's and all those places they do that shit where they're like every 45 minutes or whatever, they stick the stuff into that pneumatic tube that like rockets it to like a secret safe is not true.

Anthony:

Yeah, it's in a safe like, it's a time like safe and like, but like there's a time that Russia will like everybody come in and get an egg McMuffin like oh we get this money yeah when Rob no one ever robbed always robbed the most dangerous place like places places you shouldn't Rob like look at those get knocked off all the time. But there's probably somebody behind them with a shotgun Yeah, why would you do that? Because we get to that you're used to it. Again, kids don't get the ideas do not fucking robbing McDonald's. Trust me. You're probably saying you'll probably

Jeff:

stand outside you'll probably stand outside of McDonald's drive thru and get more money than these two idiots were trying to get from the smoke shop.

Mikey:

And if you're gonna if you're gonna rob any fast food chain, Rob Chick fil A those gay hating hassles?

Anthony:

Get the money with a smile like banks. Here's a copy of the Bible to your $783.34 cent we're going to put in a white bag for you. Thank you for coming in.

Mikey:

There's some waffle fries too and some passages from the Bible.

Jeff:

Remember, we're closed on Sunday church

Anthony:

that's probably what it'll get robbed or robbed. be confused. Like, what the fuck are you so nice?

Mikey:

Unless you're gay?

Anthony:

No, no, it's gonna be some dumbass like, you know what? We're gonna rob Chick fil A on Sunday like, boop they're not gonna come you're gonna do like why are they opening like to close?

Jeff:

I want to get back to the hip hop erotica idea that you gave me about these books man. We could do we could do this. Look, man. Here's the thing. I write them. One of us. Puts them up on Amazon and the other one does the audiobook

Mikey:

make a little Anthony's doing the audiobook he's definitely

Jeff:

gonna make like 100 volumes Hip Hop erotica, volume one volume two,

Mikey:

or three. And it has to be mean it has to be fanfiction, right? Like it has to be like, ooh, Method Man and Lil Kim. Or Megan the stallion not trying to get sued. I'm not trying to get sued. No, but it'll be like Megan the pony. And Pascaline

Jeff:

the man of methods

Mikey:

making method boy Meg. Method boy. The gentleman. Method sir.

Anthony:

Making the Doberman. Methodical mister whatever.

Mikey:

I think there's something to add a freakin man. I like it. I

Anthony:

said I did man. Everyone find a way to make money if you want to make money doing fucking books. I don't care, man. It's cash. It's America

Jeff:

real quick, man. I know you wanted to talk about Irv Gotti coming on to drink champs. I'll tell you this man. I haven't watched the whole show yet. Because it's three hours long, bro. Nora needs to do a better job he needs to learn from Vlad and start chopping these shifts up into little you know, 10 minute segments? Is it just because he's drunk sit there for three hours?

Mikey:

Probably that's the thing is I like so many of the episodes I like want to I want to go into it. But I'm like, Dude, I don't have three hours to waste right now. And the other thing about that show dude is like, like, I love the idea that they're like drinking during it and stuff. But like the levels are so smoked up because everyone's like drunk and like, yeah, and they're like running up against the camera and the microphone. I don't know. It's the hardest show to listen to.

Jeff:

But it was but it was jaw rule that it was so long because it was two people and it was John roux and Irv Gotti was both on it. And I've got he's like obsessed with Ashanti. But I didn't really know to have beef like that. You know, I'm saying he went into detail about you know how she don't fuck with him no more. Because he won't give her her masters. He owns the fucking rights to all her songs. You know, I'm saying he co wrote them. He produced them. He was his ideas according to him, of course. And he won't give her none of that shit. He was like, Yo, Ashanti doesn't want my family to eat. It's like the whole show with police bro. like, Yo, Beyonce sampled one of your songs. You didn't write it you ain't produce a union do shit with it, but lay down your vocals and then you get mad at Beyonce for using the shit. And it was worse about the KALISE situation is that Beyonce? originally put her name as a credited person, right? He wrote You know, he she gave her credit as as a writer, whatever. After the host shared with Elise, Beyonce just took her name off and guess what now you're really not eating from it. Because if you could have kept your name on there, you would have gotten some residuals. Now, I could take your name off of it because I didn't even have to put your name in it to begin with and now you're not getting anything so shut the fuck up like these entitled motherfuckers Oh,

Anthony:

yeah, I police's entitled shanties, right like I can't work with a dude that's like you kept mentioning like he wanted to get like a murder income like reunion thing going. You can't work with a dude that's still fucking love. It's not going to work. I'm like, I'm not doing this look. Are you acting now? Like now? The stupid thing I thought about the whole murdering tour like, it's to my focus. Who else in a toy train seat Cadillac TA. Fan in, in, in, in, in in in bringing in a couple localitati You gonna pull up via message? Well, we got we got you're gonna see two people, right? It's not it's not a fucking murder reunion when it's two people.

Mikey:

I guess that could be technically called a reunion. No, it's a

Jeff:

jar ruling and Trump says all right, he said he wants to do versus against bad boy Murder Inc versus bad boy, he said that's the only conglomerate. Really bad boys will watch mine.

Mikey:

Yeah. Oh, so

Anthony:

so he wants to die publicly.

Mikey:

He's trying to rob that smoke shop.

Anthony:

That's stupid. I told you play stupid games. I love it. You can go up the barest do not do that reading. Instruction like like who can really match up against bad boy in all honesty.

Jeff:

Who can? No No, that's wrong, maybe from the 90s

Mikey:

I mean, actual Wu Tang? No.

Jeff:

It's so different though. It's like they're in the same genre, but they make different type of music. If you got like the G funk versus gangsta rap versus what will Puff Daddy was doing wasn't like anything else. It wasn't gangsta rap. It was you know, I mean, it was kind of pop it was kind of Yeah,

Mikey:

but I mean, if you're talking about strictly hits like I mean death row Young Money I mean Young Money like if we're talking to hit for hit none of them. Why?

Anthony:

Money? Whenever you whenever you wanna do that Wayne Drake vs. I'm ready though. Whenever you want to do that.

Jeff:

You still got to do the Wu Tang vs member they're supposed to be three. Oh yeah. Man if somebody's gonna pick right quad somebody's gonna pick Ghostface

Anthony:

Grand cards of everybody trying to get ready for fantasy football man. But yeah, well my name is Mike you don't play fantasy football. Can you talk about sports?
