T.i & n Themoneyteam getting down

A post shared by @angelmontana_ on

I’m pretty much fed up with T.I

I’m not going to call him a snitch, because the consigliere he had during his real life reenactment of a”Punk’d” episode starring machine guns, was the same guy that got Ben Roethlisberger off when he acted in a way that would cause the majority of people NOT to put their paychecks up and bet didn’t rape a co-ed in Georgia.

To quote “Coming To America’s” pre Sexual Chocolate performance review “That boy good!”

No, my annoyance with T.I doesn’t stem from his being an Olympic level felon, nor his idiotic Cali actions, that got him sent back a little while ago.

Nah, my annoyance with T.I is of the classic, tried and true, “He’s so talented and has so much to lose, why does he keep fucking up!?!” variety.

Everybody laughed when TIP ran up on a ATL Housewife husband or whatever, but that action a couple weeks ago could’ve turned bad and resulted in potential jail time.

Same with what happened with Floyd Mayweather at Fat Burger.

Mayweather is damn near THE Las Vegas economy, do you think if really went bad they (yes the ubiquitous, but well known they) were going to do Floyd in?

Or

A Jekyll and Hyde family man, entertainer whose career has seen better days / man who can’t help listen to his inner thug voice when it yells “BAAAAAAANNNNNKKKKHEEEAAAADDD!!!!!

Yes, Floyd was taking pictures with your wife, I get that, but do you reeeaaallly think he was trying to smash?

What is NO for mere common sense Alex?

And

Even if he was, THAT’S WHAT YOUR WEED CARRIERS ARE FOR.

T.I is a millionaire MANY times over. Now I’m sure he knows more about being a crime boss than me or even this guy

But

I thought the whole point of becoming rich and powerful was to have other people do your bidding?

And

I know you’re thinking “Did he just call Young Dro a Weed Carrier”

Well

His name is Young Dro and sadly, it’s been ALL downhill sonically since the CLASSIC “Day One” mixtape.

Back to TIP tho.

T.I is a supremely intelligent, uber talented and from what people can glean from television footage, an amazing father.

So

It’s going to be real f**ked up when he goes back to prison over some dumb sh*t.

And yall got the nerve to call Gucci Mane retarded…

 

 

Levity SN: Let me find out @FloydMayweather hit T.I with the classic Goldie line.

No Meltdown: Thoughts On Dennis Rodman’s CNN Interview

In Rant Dame on January 8, 2014 at 10:03 pm

Dennis Rodman can be seen as a lot of things. A hall of fame basketball player, a champion, and individual who overcame mighty personal odds, to become and renown public figure in our society.

Or

You can choose to look at Rodman and a oft drunken embodiment of the absurdity often maligned  modern athlete (coded language alert).

How you view Mr. Rodman undoublity colors how you feel about his recent interview with CNN on the exhibition basketball game Rodman and other former NBA stars are going to participate, in former Axis of Evil and still high on America’s sh*t list country, North Korea.

Normally I could care less about anything Rodman does. The last time I really checked for any of The Worms antics, he was involved in a tag team match with Hulk Hogan  Karl Malone and Diamond Dallas Page.

That event happened so long ago, that the promotion that put it on doesn’t even exist anymore and I think DDP (For those who even know who he is) has since been banished to another universe.

Anyway

I decided to look up Rodmans interview with CNN’s Chris Como after it was widely described as a “meltdown”.

I witnessed no such meltdown.

What a saw was a man exasperated with being judged for his actions that he deemed to benevolent and defensivly annoyed that he was reciving critisiim via satialite from somebody that wasn’t doing anything to improve the beyond frayed U.S North Korea realations.

Now.

I’m no defender of N. Korea. All signs point to it being a country with MANY problems. And while I’ve had many problems with my uncle in my lifetime, I would politely pass on the opportunity to feed him to starving dogs if afforded the chance. That act was purportedly undertaken by North Korean leader and Dennis Rodmans stated best friend Kim Jong Un

No, I’m not condoning ANY of that. What I am stating is, no matter how much ones vocal tone reminds you of a bygone Ultimate Warrior promo,  you should still pay attention to what they saying.

Anger is the all time arch nemesis of thought and it pilfered the words Rodman was looking mightily for, away from him during the segment, to his detriment.

But

His actions and the reasons behind them speak well for him.

Decide for yourself.

TLC SUPER TRAILER

In Random ILL, Rant Dame on October 15, 2013 at 1:01 pm

So I’m watching the TLC super trailer (because a trailer doesn’t need to be 2 mins long to be super”) and my first thought is “The real life members of TLC, look way better than the people they have playing them.”

This is kind of crazy considering the the ladies portraying Left Eye, Chilli and T-Boz are playing roles covering periods in the latter’s life over 20 years ago. Maybe my inclination has something to do with the fact “Chilli” along with Tatyana Ali embodied my standard of beauty at the time, but I digress from my superficial musings.

No matter how much a strong contingent of us would like to believe they occurred just last week, the 90’s occurred before the internet, when you knew who Tom Brady was and Miley Cyrus treated every phallic symbol imaginable like a pacifier. Unlike the cringe worthy “United 93”, the proper time for their documentation is now.

 Nobody could’ve predicted, VH-1 would become the new and arguably far worse BET, over the past decade. Given that, I quite interested to see how out sized the stereotypes of the former 90’s staples are covered. Here’s looking at you fictitious Andre Rison played by Rico Ball.

Then again, who am I kidding, I’ll be far too busy watching zombies, the machinations of 1920’s bootlegging kingpin and Chalky White and Dr. Narcisse prove  that Black folk have never gotten along to watch “CrazySexyCool” when it appears on the 21st of this month.

If you want to see bright clothes, condoms on eyes and witness the story of 3 talented ladies who at their peak sold more records than any other women in the history of humankind, only to ironically end up on the passenger side of their best friends ride, make sure to tune in,
