Jeff:

yo what up man? Episode 106 Man I record oh shit we were recorded we record them but we live out here

Anthony:

be here we all was good. Not much it's another day.

Jeff:

Another day another dollar sharks one a bite. Forgot how to reverse go oh yeah sharks want to bite don't bother because this Rob's the truth and the truth is hard to swallow. That's what MEF said. But anyway, yeah man, Episode 106 Holla to our Patreon, man, we appreciate y'all. There's a nice brisk Sunday morning in August. This weather is getting more stupid. It'd be 101 day, then it dropped down to like 70 Another day. I'm fucking wild. His allergies is fucking me up.

Anthony:

And it's been cool lately. I ain't worried about it. It's been perfect. I prefer cool weather. I'm a full person.

Jeff:

That was I wanted to tell you that I finished I finally watched the Irv Gotti ship. I told you it was it was three hours long interview and the drink champs. So last week I had to make last week I had only watched the one hour. So I was I came back and I'll finish watching the shit because he don't break it down into clips like Vlad does. You know I'm saying fuck Vlad was still he mastered that shit where he just you know, chops it down to a bunch of little 10 minute increments. So I feel like it's easier to watch. You know, you could watch Boom 10 minutes come back later watch another piece. But I hate that but yeah, so Irv god, he's a clown, bro. They had this man. And I think that's probably

Anthony:

wait. Oh, wait, no, no, no. So now you saw what I'm not going to finish the whole thing last you shouldn't on the shots. You know, you're like, Oh, I told you that should last week.

Jeff:

I wasn't really defending Ashanti. I'm just saying like, you know, these women feel like they're entitled to shit. When somebody else owns their masters like police and the shontella. You don't own under your shear. So you don't have the right to be asking for nine. You know, I'm saying you should have negotiated this shit in your contract when you first started. I mean singing. I mean, when you go into the music business who really knows about that? Right? Right. But the producer does. When he raised the contract, and it makes you sign it. He knows what's going on? You don't

Anthony:

right. And she got to a particular point where she kind of realized that's why she's like she's doing all her old songs. She's re recording them. You know, what was the song? You ever heard a song like, oh, fuck, are we talking about this? I said, Jeff Fox is a guy's a singer. It's called like you. I literally just planned it 10 minutes ago when I was doing something this morning. And I realized like the song didn't sell into God and I wonder why didn't sound like him? Because I think that he re recorded this song to make sure that he can get the masses to it and go from there. This one hold on. It's a planet Hold on.

Jeff:

But the way God he was saying is

Anthony:

critical. Now he took his song he had to rerecord it because we re records it same verse everything but like slightly different whatever. He owns the rights to it. I think that's what the shot he was trying to do before but that that situation is weird. I mean,

Jeff:

to me wait herb explained it the way I've explained it was you have to rerecord it, but keep it basically the same. Because if you change it, then you'd need to get permission because because now it's a sample right? It's weird weird. It's

Anthony:

talking about Yeah, he said

Jeff:

if you change it up the now it's a new song, but now is basically like you're sampling that song. So now you gotta get permission and all of that from from, you know, from whoever as opposed to if you do like a cover. Mm hmm. I don't know. But anyway,

Anthony:

you're re recording your song but making covers of it. It sounds what the exactly the same but a certain thing that's slightly off. Yeah, that means that means it's not like the original so that's how you finesse it but that's that's speaking from a place of a businessman when he was when he was speaking about policemen hurt like that man.

Jeff:

But, you know, nobody knows what he's doing because he has these people smoking all kinds of shit got them drinking all kinds of shit. They're mixing drinks, he's drinking shots of some drinking champagne drinking this and once these people get up there and they get drunk and high they start just talking all types of shit. And usually the people I've seen on there have been calm but God he's putting is the first one I've seen him go on there and he hasn't been able to control himself.

Anthony:

You know I'm saying he's always been extra you just extra man.

Jeff:

Which gives me an idea you'll make that which gives me an idea yo, maybe we should like when we bring guests on him maybe we should give them something maybe we should get on like some truth serum or maybe some weed then they could still go and have them just talking reckless out here. It'll make for good.

Anthony:

It makes a good podcast but then they might they might face alright, you go right on the head man and I'm gonna stay quiet once there's a kid that incrimination not make them like oh no if I can play this remember I'm murdered that chicken Eat eat I'm like silence I say shit. You

Jeff:

gave us permission to put this out did not Did you not know Yeah, but

Anthony:

like, I ain't got time to go no court stands and none of that other shit and do anything to that nature. The truth of the matter is the thing we've got it is just like Alright, he's always been extra. He was extra extra because he was trying to draw, but that's the reason why per drink champs over Vlad. I hate them little cut up pizzas because it's like, you just give me the clickbait stuff like drink. I don't even watch I don't watch it. I literally, I literally put it on and listen to it. I actually like a podcast, because hearing them just looking at him back and forth. It's dumb to me like yo, I want to hear your talk about whatever you're going to talk about and I hear y'all but like the reason why this was just so interesting because you know, not worrying about him like I said that this shit was Earth guiding and jar rule jar really wasn't there he just in spirit. He said a couple words here and there but it wasn't really about the gyro. It was just like the earth gotta show for three hours. He was just

Jeff:

checking he was just did a check Gert got it like yo, stop calling these women bitches

Anthony:

trying to but but once your man flying like that, like IMS, you taking this a solo mission. You go right on ahead. I go argue with you. Like I said the whole thing is like, and then then Fat Joe jumped in there calling him a sucker like, cuz you don't need to do this and not not a unfuck with each other. Because it seems so wholly unnecessary. You ain't got the bandwidth. I'm like that. And Joe was making that choice firmly. He's really really good at making really firm stances on shit. Because the whole fact is, like, Y'all still been cool if he just kept that shit to yourself, like, or putting the murder in documentary alerts because it's like it's, it's I'm sorry, it's still three people. It's Earth rule

Jeff:

shot and she didn't want to do it.

Anthony:

Yes, she's she's never going to do it like that. I guess the point I'm trying to get across is that you can't really work even if you'd like professional relationship. You can't work with somebody who's obviously in love with you. Like it's just just it's a weird thing because you're not certain what place to come from. I come from another producer, someone who like really loves me and that's why you're chastising me am I singing bad because you think it works better on the record are you think I'm doing a bad because you got these feelings for me? It was all fucked up it's interesting but

Jeff:

he said he said he says she cheated on him with Nellie and he found out on TV because they went on a game together

Anthony:

nigga you hash graph because assuming you you married he was married like cheating on me with Nellie you was I can see he was divorced. You're separated from your wife at the time separation does not mean divorce you are not technically single if you go your own different ways that some clown shit like she cheated on me with Nellie like that's not your girlfriend it's somebody you wit like calm down it she was treating it like a side and given the main opportunities and when the side tripping up and getting mad like she remained I'm lost it that's confusing math to me.

Jeff:

And then he said he kicked out Lloyd from the group right because he saw him like in a video with which unit assumption like that

Anthony:

people would shoot with him and cream and so on and so forth. I get it. But I forgot like the I completely forgot about Lloyd being on that

Jeff:

detour. Lloyd is the one that sings a shorty right

Unknown:

yes forgot

Jeff:

he was in that crew bro. Exactly. You had a cup of tea with them real quick.

Anthony:

It was just You just another thing and it came on and it went he had a couple of hits and shit went sideways everything goes I mean, I think he was like saying some shit like you know we do a murder in verses for any label. I'm like y'all got to stop no you don't y'all it's not funny but

Jeff:

he said he wants to do and

Anthony:

he said bad boys when we said that should last week Microsoft said you want to die fast you want to go slow it's your choice. You don't want to do that like I don't think anybody wants to a bad boy

Jeff:

at all not if we're talking hits versus hits I don't think nobody could fuck with bad boy to be honest

Anthony:

with the tangent and actually to do with this when the last time you serve jury duty oh

Jeff:

shit it was several years ago and I wanted to stay it was maybe don't want to say oh no it was before the pandemic you forgetting the pandemic was two years so it's probably like four years ago.

Anthony:

Man I got a fucking jury notice I'm like, do it bro. Does

Jeff:

your job pay for

Anthony:

you? Yeah, I work is the kind of position this counties county court so they're gonna pay for it but right so is that I don't gotta go to the courthouse though. Why not? Virtual this one? Yeah, this one the pandemic rules you got to keep the camera on to sit right there like the courthouse is not a no someone who recently have jury duty. There was home the whole week just had to stay in front of the camera and that's it.

Jeff:

They do a whole trial on camera and computer. Yes. So the only thing President is the judge and the lawyers and the plaintiffs and the defendants. Correct Get the fuck out ahead. You're gonna decide the fate of somebody on your on your laptop

Anthony:

going to bad faith tomorrow what was sitting there drinking tea or whatever chill Yeah sure, I guess just relaxing you ain't got no pants on and nothing just just sit there just boxes on the sitting in front of a screen and you got to do it for hours upon end but you do at work, but if they don't pay

Jeff:

you, yeah, my job pays me so that's why I wanted to do it because other jobs that have been in the past they wasn't paying you they was making you use your PTO time and all this other shit. So they were like encouraging you to get you know, to try to like get get out of it. But this job they'll pay you, you know, so I used to I wanted to do it but then they actually dismissed me I was there for like two weeks getting the little $20 a day or whatever it was, which was dope because I got the money from the Corps and I got paid at my job. And I wanted to actually participate cuz I never did it but it was like some bullshit where you know, they found some Hispanic kids and like Patterson southern southern drugs or something. Right. So I was the only juror that was Hispanic, so I'm assuming that's why they dismissed me because at 1.1 of the lawyers was like, Joe, we want to dismiss the jury in number three, Jeff Delarosa I'm like and and I asked the judge I'm like why he's like, you're dismissed. I'm like, But why can't give me a reason. I was like, Nah, you get the fuck out of here. I was like damn, I want to know why am I crazy? Because I'm stumped only Spanish and they feel like I'm gonna be biased or some shit

Anthony:

probably was called experienced by people go Yeah, final was. Oh man. But the point is that since I'm a county employee, like when it gives me the check, I have to give it back to the to the county to county got

Jeff:

it. I'm keeping that

Anthony:

I can't my turn some shit. I'm a county employee. I was looking right back. Fuck that bro. What am I gonna do with it?

Jeff:

I got that check looks like 150 or some I took this

Anthony:

thing my mines is mounting either one trial or one week? I'm not sure yet. Hopefully it's one trial because it was like two weeks.

Jeff:

That's what my show was but I got picked right away. Because they used to pick by last name right? So I used to always get pick because D you know me, but now they don't do it. That was random. Now they have like a little machine that randomly spits out names. And that's how they do it. But back in the day used to be by last name, you know?

Anthony:

Yeah, I've been to Georgia like what four times because my first name begins with an A. My last name begins with an A. There's no winning immediately. Almost always. I'm consistent. I'm always the man. But with jury duty like the top of that went inside like you would sit in a place. Wait a few hours they walk over to a courthouse. See how that goes. Walk your back is doing it all day. I like like by the third time I got to sit down pack. I brought like three books. I brought like I brought a charger. If

Jeff:

any children it'd be chilled. Because that Judge below it'd be it'd be lazy as hell like this. Matt breaks every hour. He's like I let's take a break. Let's go to lunch. It might rain tomorrow. So don't come back tomorrow. Come back Monday. I'm saying it might snow tear. Like they used to be sending you home for shaving like then it'd be extending the shit. The shit is a long process to begin with just selecting the 12 juries and actually 15 Because you need like three backups. Right? So just selecting the 12 Jurors takes weeks before the trial even starts.

Anthony:

Yeah, anyone who had a legal system off because they just be random about it like hey, we'll come back tomorrow.

Jeff:

It was days today. There was days I was only in there for like four hours getting paid for the whole day. I was like Ben took the rest of the day off. There was like oh, no, don't come back. It'd be like Thursday he'd be like I don't come back tomorrow come back Monday. Oh shit. That's a little three day weekend.

Anthony:

Like yes come back Monday. Let me still get paid like yes. But

Jeff:

maybe like oh maybe like we don't know we're gonna come back call the hotline. You got to call the hotline hotline the next day and be like why are you coming back Tuesday the 13th I bet

Anthony:

yeah, I got a little curious I'm gonna notice I got my little numbers shit like what did you remember? Oh three that that that that that like yeah you're in chambers this that we got to be in about 10 o'clock like alright cool because my your sheets and Patterson minds and dork I know people who who've never heard jury duty and it's actually pretty brilliant. Because the jury system is made by mail you can just like I never got I never got to notice I always

Jeff:

said the ship. Oh really? I've always said this shit. That they should have professional jurors bro like that should be like a career like you go study study the law study all the shit and then you can you know they can just select from there bro from people that are actual jurors, instead of picking random people who are dumb as hell or who don't know the law who don't know shit or who can't be there because they have to be at work or whatever. Like Well, you know I'm saying or the only other option is pick people that are unemployed. You know, I'm saying there's a lot of people that can't be there because they need to be at their actual jobs. Go pick the people that need them the little money you know, I'm saying that are unemployed or whatever. Get people that are on welfare. Select them they should be the first one selected people that ain't doing shit but how do you know the unemployed though? Because you have the records bro they don't if they're if they're receiving food stamps or some shit or they're on welfare then you know I mean you could look into that there should be like is this person employed and I we're gonna select them they can't give you an excuse like oh my job is not going to pay me like no we paying you motherfucker

Anthony:

shit on money and on the books I know people working for a very long time you write free cash under the two decades you're right I do today before the tax returns since 1982 They don't give a fuck man they like look me paying me in cash buddy.

Jeff:

They're gonna regret that they're gonna regret that when they're 6062 and can't really retire because they haven't got a goddamn pension they don't gotta got them shit and no retirement no social security with them

Anthony:

cash only jobs is always some back breaking labor shit like 100% Like it's it's awesome kids going into fucked up like hey man, I'm gonna pay you $800 A week oh word man what I gotta do you see them cinder blocks over there? I need to take them chips and put them all the way over there along whenever you're done so if I get done early, I can leave early. Yeah, never getting done or doing that shit man. Shift on rain sleet hail snow we got to move and shit oh yeah your side be good. Come on, man. I mean, how many know how many cash only jobs you know inside besides like a bartender? Even that's not true because they got it? Yeah, even the police's enjoy. Right, right. They get they get paid whatever but to get paid whatever and tips but you still got a tax return. Right? They will find no tax return like you owe the sheet we're gonna find no tax return.

Jeff:

They're trying to retire. They're trying to apply for Social Security at age 63 They like my father you need to work 283 We won't go shit in the system. You haven't. You haven't paid taxes in 25 years.

Anthony:

How much how much I'm getting Social Security. How much you getting in what? Here? They're gonna follow people across like, holy, holy, I didn't get none. No, nothing what I've been working Oh, you have? How long shipment you got to pay the tax man. You got paid

Jeff:

retro active. You owe retroactive taxes for the last 30 years.

Anthony:

It's gonna take out a loan bro. I had I had a conversation with somebody about the term drug dealer. And I thought it didn't make sense until I actually like really started thinking about it. Alright, so what does the drug dealer do? sells drugs? Correct. So why did you call them a drug seller?

Jeff:

Hmm. Why we just call them street pharmacists?

Anthony:

Because pharmacists need degrees. You gotta go Scooby treatment. But I was I was really chopping up somebody it took me 20 minutes to figure this out. Because Because I know, I've known drug dealers, I don't know drug dealers. Now I've known drug dealers, drug dealers work on the barter system. So they're not necessarily paid cash. They'll take something else for drugs. So technically, it's a deal so drug dealer doesn't make sense. Not necessarily a drug seller. And drug dealer just is more phonetic, I guess. A minimum of drug seller non drug dealer sound dope.

Jeff:

You know how now in most states now like wheat is pretty much legal. Where there's recreationally where there's different forms that are shit. Whether it's CBD whether it's you know, I mean, T was the other shit. The

Anthony:

Delta they're fake, they're fake. They're fake.

Jeff:

They are all types of shit that's legal now you know, but I still see motherfuckers trying to sell weed like on the low like on some illegal shit like yo open up some shit you know I'm saying open up a little tent no so your shit no you know try to get a permission a permit itself some shit. What do you mean absolutely

Anthony:

not. You know you know what? You know what people who do we have found have been like thriving ain't no tax.

Jeff:

Yes, but they're also no future but there's also no future because when you get caught your fuck?

Anthony:

Well, maybe you've been dealing drugs. You knew that shit they meant to do this whole thing is

Jeff:

like yo this people still in jail now from when Clinton was in office that are doing time for selling drugs.

Anthony:

Though it's a dispensary like seven minutes from my house. You know he's my friend is charging $60 for an eighth

Jeff:

you need to come to the hookah shop by me bro. You got to come to the hookah shop to buy meat so all kinds of shit they even got THC infused water B seltzer water I was fucking them shut up

Anthony:

look my I tried to be known by fucking science experiment. I haven't even tried some shouldn't be like, hey man, I got water with weed and like Nick That doesn't sound right like is it like a bong? No, there's water but it's infused with we like

Jeff:

yeah actual cans Bros has labels and has all types of shit the ingredients what you buy and sign off on the streets you don't know what they given you. Lets you don't got no label.

Anthony:

All right, but we spoke a week long enough you know as we yeah but you're not spiking weed this whole thing you got to spike stronger drugs to make them stronger weed itself is strong enough it's just like it's just it's it's we trunk but it's not like I'm gonna die strong see difference and alpha the Alpha whatever bullshit like smoke lab created wheat that delta shit you almost smoke live create a weed he want to die from it you go right on the head that she was unregulated don't give a fuck about you that sounds ridiculous I'll go and smoke some shit called delta and that a gas station so terrible idea like just just just do regular drugs like people smoking weed forever he's never ever ever ever ever ever ever seen someone overdose on weed you pass out you're gonna die and that's just spoken to regular shit so while I'm drinking shit I'm a we drink is we I remember it there's a restaurant and New York as I remember name where all their food is weed infused like me like pizza pasta, all of this shit.

Jeff:

You come out of there fucked up?

Anthony:

Well, I think that's kind of part of it. So I do and it can seem like a pretty long hike to go over there and get hired had thrown back across the bridge. But that's for anybody but I won't trip about it. I mean, do you want to sell weed?

Jeff:

No, legally and not want to sell the ship? But I'm saying if you've been selling it illegally, all your life and shit. And now that it's legal? Why don't you try to make a little business out of it? Instead of still walking around the streets on some illegal shit. Trying to dodge the cops. I'm just saying. Because at some point you got to try to live your life.

Anthony:

No, it just like to do we talked about who worked all the time, right? And never had a job getting paid treat cash and never pay taxes. Same thing? What if you feel that we already like what you know about balancing books instead of the accounting of other guys. I know the push weed. I don't know nothing about setting up a business or paying rent or insurance. I sell weed.

Jeff:

You got to take out a loan we probably got no credit right?

Anthony:

You can sell a weed. Exactly fuck to get a loan for your for your application. Employment. I said we and I said you ain't got no credit history. It's Hand in Hand cash, cash and cash and go and that's it. So to try to start a business like that seems gonna be really really fucking difficult because you know, I sell weed. That's it. That's what I do. So I mean, maybe that's the whole thing. Like maybe you can get a shot a job inside of dispensary to sell weed. But then you got to like wait for payroll, and give me a social and wait every two weeks to get paid. You see a way to get money every fucking day. I'm not saying do it. I'm just saying. You So wait, I'm gonna go hard. But enough about that. That's your bank.

Jeff:

So let's get back to hip hop, man.

Anthony:

We did hip hop.

Jeff:

Right. Angela Yee is leaving the Breakfast Club. Y'all have to 12 years. It seems way longer than 12 years, right? It seemed like they was doing the shift forever. And I remember she started off with the Wu Tang bro. I don't know if you remember she was in the video reunited. Yeah, Tang MOTHER FUCKA. It will she was one of the chicks that was singing that shit in the video. She was interning for that's how she got her foot in the game. And I feel like she sees DJ envy doing his thing. Obviously he's a DJ so he does other things outside of you know the Breakfast Club. Charlemagne is doing thing he got a TV show, you know, I mean, he's doing obviously he got a book. So he's doing his thing I felt like maybe she feels like these two dudes is doing their own thing. I'm not I don't really got shit going on except for this show and maybe a couple appearances on Love and Hip Hop. You didn't say it? So let me go do some because they said she's gonna have her own show like that's going to come on right after the Breakfast Club and she's basically going to be talking about the same shit like you know the Ask ye and the rumors or whatever the fuck she talks about the room have rapport and all of that shit, right? Okay, so what the fuck is that about? Are they gonna pay her more money to have to be by herself? Like I know the Breakfast Club is the brand bro like the radio they brought they kept radio going like people don't really listen to radio no more. Everything is just podcasts or XM Satellite you don't I'm saying or streaming shit. Breakfast Club. I feel like kept the radio. Exactly. People People don't really listen to the who's listening to the radio hot 97 power 105 This is a demographic maybe the older has like us, who still remember coming up with it. But Breakfast Club I think kept radio going because there was something that people wanted to tune into every morning, you know, I'm saying and even then now they've gotten in where they they put it up on YouTube and people who just go on YouTube and listen to the shit uninterrupted without the commercials.

Anthony:

It's the last vestiges of an old hip hop that is slowly dying out. And there's nothing you can do about it. I mean, could before you know guys just to go up there and break records. They come out like they do free south. They have the singles, but they have like the LA leakers They have, you know, sway the other places to kind of do this, like, understand, like, if it's the birthplace of hip hop you think about the importance of it, but it's not what it needs to be or what it's supposed to be. Because it's not the same, though you don't have to be on radio to break a record, you don't like say, you could just put that shit on Instagram or Tiktok. And it'll become a hit like you don't like they're not necessary. We're before they were the gatekeepers, you wanted to play this song, you got to be on here, you want to, you want to get this this group heard or these rappers you have to do this, you have to, you know, be on you know, Kay Slay or stretch and Bob, or flex. You don't need that anymore. they've outgrown it. And I don't necessarily think that's a problem. I think just recognize of the way hip hop has changed. It's evolved, I would say, not to the betterment, because I think you need to those gatekeepers in place, the people who will let you know what's hot, what's not what's, what was really this thing, and you're not going to have that anymore. Pretty much anybody can release anything and it only is something that click, you want to get paid. But now it's it's the wild wild west. I mean, I wish her all future endeavors. But I mean, it's something it's duality things that happens. There's always more than shows and they always pass it was before them. Was it had Starbuck, Starbuck? Wow, it was funny. So right, right, they had, like their hot 97 had their crew, it all changes, everything shifts over time. Like so it still has all the things they do. But I mean, like, it's enjoyable to a degree but like, if you have serious and you have all the streaming radio stations, and or whatever, in podcasts and everything like that, that takes up more your listening time to anything else, especially in effect. Like before, when we were listening to music, like we had to wait to hear a particular song now it's literally a fingerprint away. Like I just tap a button. I'm like, I can hear whatever fucking want to hear like I don't care what y'all are playing. I can scroll through this and see what's new and what's different. And I can listen to that artists artists, I probably won't hear on a hip hop and r&b station but somebody's got to enjoy. So it's tricky and like I said, I understand like, I appreciate her you know, moving on and having other endeavors but I can take omega high 97 There's only one Angie Martinez long can I try to do what Angie do you're fine she's a long she's long stand she's she's the queen of this thing. Wendy Williams is the queen this thing to like said she went a different route and now her life is some other shit. What happened is here is different.

Jeff:

If I'm Charlemagne an NVR. Get Angie Martinez on the phone. See if you want to join us.

Anthony:

She wouldn't normally find the seven. She would know she knows. She know she left already. I'm pretty sure she's on Paula.

Jeff:

I'm pretty sure she's on power now. She got home she Yeah, she don't follow anybody left. The only person that has stayed with on any seven is Funkmaster Flex. And he's annoying as fuck they don't let you listen to shit. Dropping and bombs and shit like that. But he's like the last dude of the dying breed. You know, I mean of the back in the day people from my 97 He's the only one that stood it. But yeah, Angie did left. She left a few years ago.

Anthony:

Oh, I'm sorry. I'm an idiot. She left for you. 2004 2014 14

Jeff:

It wasn't that long ago. Yeah, it was a couple of years ago. It's just that the pandemic that we forget like those two years is a blur.

Anthony:

She was at hiding them for 20 plus years and left to go to power 1051 Like we had to kind of forgot about it. I don't know

Jeff:

what her time slot is. But she'd be having rear timeslot when nobody's listening to the radio and shit. She would get on the phone be like yeah, it was good. You want to be the female voice at a breakfast club. She'll get more years than whatever time slot she got. I think she got like a two o'clock time slot of some stupid shit. Like people are at work at that time. You know, I'm saying I don't know if that's time slots or at night or in the morning.

Anthony:

I mean, what much more you want Andrew to do. So I'm looking at the MG 51

Jeff:

God damn game. We've

Anthony:

been around for a while man. Like I said 20 plus years.

Jeff:

We as people we grew up listening to me.

Anthony:

I'm okay with that. I rather rather live old and happy than younger than dead. Crow man expert. Extend your life like it's more fun. Like, like when you you lived a long life. I have memories and things like that. Yeah, like last cut too short, like, like people like we we talk and reminisce about Tupac and big. But we always forget how how young they actually were. They didn't hit 30 That's amazing. How old was like 2425 I think?

Jeff:

Yep. I was like, 25 Oh

Anthony:

my gosh. 24. That's just crazy. Bonus seven anyone died in 9688 25. Yeah,

Jeff:

that's just crazy. But yo, some new music dropped this week, black dog got his show called chess, cheat codes. It's pretty dope. You're never gonna say anything bad about a black dog project. It's just, you know, he has to be your cup of tea. Like if you want to listen to lyrics, you know, I'm saying so there's not nobody under 30 is going to be listening to Black though I don't think unless they're like a student of the game, and they really got to, you know, old soul type of shit. Because he's just going to be spent. Okay, please,

Anthony:

hold that thought. Hold on. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I want to hold on to that thought when we get to somebody else later. That's all.

Jeff:

He's just lyrical. You know, I'm saying that. I don't want to say the beats are good. They're dope. They don't know. It's really stands out. But it's something I would definitely vibe to in the car. You know, I'm saying if I want to, like, just concentrate on what the fuck he's saying. Because you got to listen to Black Dog. You know, I'm saying,

Anthony:

Oh, 100% I mean, I mean, that's why he is who he is. Yeah.

Jeff:

Royse dropped an album. But it's a compilation, right? It's like, it looks like it's a greatest hits album. I thought it was some new shit. Oh, was this and then I was like, just has all his old songs, tabernacle Caterpillar with them. And then we got a bunch of hip hop. And then special was just, yeah. So why don't they just call the greatest hits? He called to some other shit. Heavens, whatever the fuck. I'm like, I'm making it look like it's a new album is gonna get paid. Like if it's a new album, if it gets streamed, but it's just always Oh, shit. Whatever. I met him.

Anthony:

I'm trying to think as an artist ever named the greatest hits album and the greatest hits. Yeah,

Jeff:

I mean, not a label back in the day.

Anthony:

I know bad boy like Bad Boy Records Greatest Hits. Five years or whatever. Yeah. But like rock and roll dudes like, you know, Van Halen they do that we don't we play? Like black. We hate the fact that it's aging. Like, it's so good. That's why we should read if it's difficult to get, right.

Jeff:

Don't be can't somebody was, somebody was talking about this. They were saying like, hip hop is still new, like, it's 49 years old is going to be 50 next year. Right. So it's like, now it's where is really starting to age like before, you're not I mean, it was still relatively new. You know, it was even if it was 20 years old, if it was 30 years old. When we was coming up in the 90s. You know, I'm saying she was only 20 years old. 30 years old. So it wasn't so now is when it's starting to age. So it's like, okay, it's different now, like, you know, it's a new arena now. Like, how do how do we go about to shit.

Anthony:

Um, it has to evolve. And people have to be more respectful of hip hop as it is. I don't think you can go on without it without enjoying the fact. Like, I was looking at YouTube, I think last weekend. And they were showing a bunch of clips and a bunch of highlights from the Rock the Bells concert. Shouldn't be fucking amazing. Buster was there. Kim was there. Oh, obviously is cute. It's these artists that you've grown up with, but, and they're all 50 Or they can still perform, and they can still go out there, they can still perform, they can still do their thing. Now, I think it's their rightful place. I mean, I still want to see them for as long as possible, long as you can keep doing what they're doing. I'm cool with that, like the department hip hop is that they don't treat your leggings as part as an elder that could do rock and roll venues. Like Bruce Springsteen can go to melons right now like, charging hella money for a Springsteen concert. And they still gonna go and still gonna pack it out. You do same thing with hip hop artists like this is your legacy. These are the people who brought these things for to you. I'm not saying like, they should be doing, you know, guests versus with some of these younger rappers. No, but I think that there's a lien in the pocket for them to hold on to establish the integrity of hip hop more than anything else. And it's good to have that. So that's what I'm saying about the whole Greatest Hits thing. You got to call it like, that's what it is. And that's fine, but But you have to learn to love and appreciate it because it's turning into something that I don't necessarily understand or see if it's, it's really purely the essence of hip hop right now, but it's trained, but we're gonna we're gonna get through this one way or the other.

Jeff:

So let's get to the album that we both want to talk about. The game dropped the 31 track album called dramatic heart versus mind.

Anthony:

And that's where he fucked up for one but continue. Why? So bam. what's your what's your favorite album? Of all time? Yes.

Jeff:

This several we could go maybe Wu Tang chambers, Lauryn Hill, or one of the NAS is talking about first three albums.

Anthony:

Right? How long? How long was 12 tracks, right.

Jeff:

Did you think tracks tops

Anthony:

right? You can suppose to condense a lot into a little when you got 31 tracks already know you fucked up. Because it seems haphazard. You don't like you don't. If you're that good. You don't need that many Like if you got 31 tracks let's say they're all good. Give me 12 Give me 12 Give me 910 following after that, but uh throw them all on there and they're not the majority of them are like mid game game game game so

Jeff:

yeah so it started plus he should have split that into like two different albums like Part One and Part Two but anyway three yeah well yeah yeah three but I've always liked game I always thought he was the best member in G unit like lyrically and storytelling wise shit okay now but now and the one song that stands out obviously on this album and the only reason anybody tuned in was for the one song called the Black Slim Shady it's which is which is which is 10 minutes long which is also another mistake and he's supposedly distant Eminem and he sounds more like a Stan than it then even you know I'm saying he's supposedly kidnap stands brother Mike what is it? Matthew is definitely stands brother Matthew from like the from the from the 20 years ago song that Eminem did with the starter cap or whatever. So he kidnaps him and then he has him rapping a verse, and in the first verse game Spitz and he's like doing m&ms cadence right? I think the whole song is actually him like emulating how Eminem raps Yeah. And then he this is you know, Dre this is 50 this is I'm giving Eminem like a week to respond bro. Because he mentioned Haley too. And when I first I was listening to this show with my sister who's in the call when it first dropped I got the notification let me put it on a put a shirt on. And we're listening to it on the call. We was on our way to Chipotle, I think and when he says something about Haley my sister was like, oh shit, he said Haley Eminem's responded immediately to us. I said no, no, you know, everybody knows you don't mention Haley. But I don't know it's just sad bro. Because it's clearly clickbait. It's clearly clickbait. It's clearly you know, a marketing ploy. And one part he says, you know, like, Yo, you're not in anybody's top five, not mine, not POCs. Now, bla bla, bla, stop, you know, stop spreading white lies. And right away on Twitter, people are clowning him, because he brought up an old tweet from like, a year or two ago where he's saying like, Yo, this is my top 10 And he has Eminem, like number four of all time.

Anthony:

I make him a chromosome lies he came up with on lies ridiculous. So you got em. You got this? That everything going on? And he's going back and forth with them. Talking about God knows what. And about who and you're talking about like Eminem has a weak response, Emma's not gonna respond. You know why? Because he's above this apple for who for what, like, him rapid against game for one is unfair, like, what do you want me to do to go ahead and start? Like what battling? Like the game of all people? Like, no, I have zero interest in doing that. Like, I'm trying to make sure Mom's spaghetti is popping. I'm not worried about this mafia right here. Like seriously, it doesn't matter. I understand that like, and again, the length of the album is one thing and then we talk about you know, that's why I asked that question about the, your top albums, like the density of it. There's no reason for any rapper ever. And I mean, ever. Unless it's about maybe eight people on the record to have a 10 minute song. Nobody that damn good. And he's definitely not. And it's not a knock against game game game is a good rapper. It really is. But there's nothing memorable about the die. There's nothing about game that stands out like I fuck with game like whenever you're naming off your best rappers. He pops up but it's not like he's like. He's like pop for it to the forefront of your mind. Even people just generation. Kendrick Cole Drake Wayne still, like, are you really checking for the game like that? If you saying you do like, not actually to prove it. I just want to see if you're lying to me, because it doesn't seem like he's the kind of guy you check for. He's a really talented, really talented. Well, he can rap. But we seem to think about God. Like he's the best lyricist. No, I don't think he's better than banks. He's the best storyteller. Probably. Probably. You're Not You don't got a roster full of guys who are great storytellers. Even Phil's not a great storyteller. But that's why I said wouldn't bring back that we said about black thought. Because black thought everybody knows man. We had to wait like eight minute freestyle. Hearing him do that and hearing top tier rapping like that is memorable. Period. You create an A to have a 10 minute track about Eminem of all people. And M just doesn't really care about you. If you know what it is, it's the herb Ashanti thing. You're talking about someone who doesn't care about you Like are sitting there for hours talking about Ashanti game is sitting in for 10 minutes talking about M M don't care for him. I'm not checking for him and said they've been kind of in the same area or amongst the same people for more than a decade now. Have you ever done a song together? Can I remember like gaming?

Jeff:

They got songs together? Yeah, they got songs,

Anthony:

right? Are they memorable?

Jeff:

No.

Anthony:

Right? Is it outside of the shit he did with 50 Can you honestly say that anything that off the top your head he can remember that game was really really memorable about

Jeff:

outside of all the songs he did with with the 50 The only other song that I can remember is the one he did with Kanye you could have went

Anthony:

for him back stars you know, put your hands up late and

Jeff:

he's just stars name dropping all types of video bitches

Anthony:

on Mulholland and Vito Guerrero right not rapping but on some awesome some other shit like doing if you rapping you ain't got to do this if like said if you black thought I don't got to name nobody because when you hear me rap I got this game is always a spectacle. That's the problem. Even when 50 is a spectacle, but he gave some shit you can fucking groove to game it's always a spectacle. You see me you may 31 songs and did all of this shit. And I think that you want to push forward. It's a district that people can probably cut off in about four minutes. They don't want to hear you rapping about this and that whatever this and everybody's like, and the thing is that he's outside of me. I will probably say like the people who distance the people I would consider that really helped his career. Like you didn't me you didn't you didn't Dre you didn't fit you like you don't exist without them. Like What don't you understand? Whatever it is what it is, but I don't know what the problem is like, but it's just it started him months ago. What?

Jeff:

I think he's salty because of the Super Bowl. Because being left out, like the Super Bowl was in Los Angeles, right? Like his backyard. And Dre gets selected and he picks a roster and he picks Eminem, he picks Kendrick, he picks marry J Snoop and 50 and I felt because I remember the game like tweeting or talking shit about oh, how come I wasn't selected? So I think it was ever since that though. He felt slighted. Like he's like you're there in my backyard. I'm proud to be part of this crew like why he ain't picked me today went back to this and everybody that's the weakest is that the worst squashing of beef in hip hop history like the game and 50 shit because they squash it and still go at each other

Anthony:

conflict you don't watch what nobody fitness wise. He'd never squat when he's questioned with Fat Joe

Jeff:

sort of Yeah,

Anthony:

if they did, and that really didn't show us that fucking each other he didn't talk about him and God does not really squash you just like we're just gonna come to grim like I'm gonna say shit about you. You're gonna say shit about me? Are we cool? Correct but 50 don't squash it with nobody 50 is just 50 Petty he always gonna be 50 have grievances for people for years. He's never let that shit go. that anything would game it's just this like, okay, game comes out to the Super Bowl right? What the fuck is game complete by himself?

Jeff:

He gonna play wanted to share with 50 Right. I hate it. I love it the underdogs on top.

Anthony:

And frankly, don't fuck with them. So what else you're gonna play? You shouldn't Andre, you're good shit for Dre. You gotta do some shit with Snoop. Snoop. You don't fuck with em. And Mary Mary. Like, there's no concern with him. Like, what what Kendrick? Like, come on, man. I'm saying shit was in Los Angeles. He didn't deserve to be on that stage. He didn't Right. Like it's a Super Bowl. It is for superstars. You're not that your star. Not stupid stuff. Everyone everyone else in this screen and on that stage is Ace certified bonafide superstar except you the problem is that if he was up there he was in totally out of fucking place. And I would like to make it like that. Game Correct. He can't do it again. Games. You can't I'm not denying that man's ability. Game. Correct. But he's not. He's not. He's not. In his mind. He's a superstar. In reality. It's a terrible one too, because no one's going to care after about a week.

Jeff:

Is Eminem gonna respond?

Anthony:

No, for what? Gods don't talk to mortals do you pray to God they don't talk to you. I mean, it looks it's no shade against them. Come on, man. Like him wrapped when he wants. Eminem is really at the position in life where not blasting him but he's got here. And what I mean is that it's pretty much him hitting probably Jay Z. But they can. Like if I want to release an album I can. I can go six years without releasing anything. But if I want to really some brand new, you're gonna be lit you're gonna sell millions of what used to be making the copies but brings upon millions of downloads and streams. Then go back to the ether but that's the same for Jay does Jesus pops out does now what I'm sorry there's three people j, m and Beyonce those three can do it. Like Beyonce is going to release this album and she's gonna release another one probably in a year or so two years whenever, but there's no time to have like a man we gotta have some hot like nah, I'm Beyonce. I'm Jay I'm him. I don't have to do the shit. Like I'm already rich. I'm doing this because I love it. And something inspired me I'm going to do it well so what's the point of no deal with this shit with game like it doesn't serve him any any point honestly even thing talking about here like Hale is an adult now she's she's gone through this shit her whole life her skin stuff like this ain't nothing like y'all been shouting shouting them out for more than 18 years. The fuck can we get mad about it now? She's fine. She's in college. She's doing well for herself. I don't care if she said no problem is she's probably not going to but that's what it's going to be. So does M have to respond? No. Should he respond? No, we'll be entertaining if he respond. Yeah, but he's probably not

Jeff:

you heard the act of the rock about who he was who who would he be their pet? I don't even know how to even word that shit. Like who's pet would you be and he said Megan the stallion so now people are running with that and Megan actually read comments and she said oh, that's legendary of him to say that or some shit. Like, what does that even mean? Does that mean he likes her? Is that like their sexual undertones to that comment or like what the fuck does that mean? Does he want to be the rock Wyler to her? Was she just gonna drag him through his collar down the street?

Anthony:

Whatever these Wilder do I don't care I don't know if the rock want to be on all fours a six foot 420 60 pounds lead by leash by making the stallion whatever the man wants to do with his life me I don't care not it's not important to me i that that that that that? I mean I don't even call it weird. I think the thing I always respected the rock was like you asked the man the question he's going to answer the question you don't duck shit which is a plus. So is there anybody you want to be let around on a leash by

Jeff:

no that's slavery should

Anthony:

know slavery should shackles leashes not

Jeff:

okay well shit. shackles is on your on your legs and shit leashes on your neck legs?

Anthony:

Right? Like if it's a leash on my neck I can get my hands and that's it when I'm cuffed. That's slavery when that this next year come on man you guys spy slept a little bit Come on. You don't want like like a little little dog collar little paddle little toy

Jeff:

you have Megan in the rock ended up dating like what would be their their their name you know? I mean like there are a couple name whatever. You know people get a couple of names now.

Anthony:

The rock star

Jeff:

the rock stallion. That's

Anthony:

the rocks. It felt like a horse's name.

Jeff:

Sound like Nagin to the rock?

Anthony:

Make make rock mag rock it's like a fucking ice cream. No big rocks now but she's happy her relationship rocks happy but it just one thing it's I don't even think it's sexual man. I think just admiration. Like I think she's happy for what he is and she's happy for what he is like Alexei she called him legendary because he's the rock man like he's a family guy. He just built what a new locker room for the University of Miami for the football team. Like fire. Like they all got leather chairs and like above the thing is like an LED screen which shows like their their face. That number and their name, like none of those slot and tags and shit like that. He redesigned the whole thing. Because he went

Jeff:

there. That's the school he wants. Yeah. Yeah, his alma mater. Yeah, and like,

Anthony:

they just talk about these things. And I mean, it seems kind of weird, but it's not weird at all. It just is what they do. And it's fun. It's fun. It's all in good fun. I don't think it's going to go any further than that. They're not dating he he fully married and she's with somebody else. So it's just kids having a good time. couple laughs happens.

Jeff:

Let me get out of here though. But Steve Jobs said if you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time. The culture by
