Lil B The Based God Ultimate Bitch: ‘Rent Due’

based-god

This is so deep yet so subtle that you might miss it, but with this track Lil B is actually proclaiming the benefits of owning one’s home as opposed to renting.

Bonus: Based God single-handedly ends racism with the track below.

Russian Youth Soccer Brawl Includes Flying Jet Li Kick

These kids can’t be old enough to remember Ivan Drago beating Apollo Creed to death and nearly besting Rocky Balboa in ’85, but the big Russian’s influence has and will last for generations. (Deadspin)

J. Lo & Iggy Azalea Establish Donk Oligarchy With ‘Booty’

iggy-jlo

J. Lo’s about 45 and has given birth to two kids, yet there’s not a single stretch mark on her now muscled money maker. I’m kind of disappointed by that. Anyway, good job, Iggy. If there’s a God there will be a remix featuring Nicki Minaj and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Throwback: JoDeCi Ft. Ghost & Raekwon (Live At The Apollo)

wu-jodeci

“You had me harder than a roll of quarters.” Man, I used to listen to this song all the time in my first car, an ’87 Plymouth Horizon that I bought for $550. And this performance, which aired at like 1am Cleveland time, inspired me to buy my first concert tickets ever, to Wu-Tang’s world tour the following year. Too bad only five of the nine members showed up. RZA still owes me money for that.

Cam’Ron Ft. 2Chainz: ‘Snapped’ (Dipset Type Song)

camron.2.chainz.snapped

Either rap hasn’t progressed or Cam’Ron’s old music was really that good, but this sounds a lot like something from the long white tee era.

The Great Sisqo Has A New Video With Waka Flocka

It’s like Beyonce music, but from a man. Every time I see Sisqo I thank God that I didn’t get a tattoo around my navel, which almost happened after I saw his. Hey, it was a difficult time in my life and the man inspired me when he floated/walked atop hundreds of half-naked women. It was like Black Jesus in the flesh.

Biggie’s ‘I Got A Story To Tell’ Had To Be About Larry Johnson

larry.johnson

John Starks claimed yesterday on ESPN that Biggie wasn’t telling a story about him, which leaves Larry Johnson and Allan Houston as the only two players of that era (’95-’96) who could be one of those “Six-five ni**as.” Allan Houston married in ’96, which means he and his wife were in love around the time the song was written. Larry Johnson was also married, but in ’92, and by ’96 he had already gotten three other women pregnant. Chances are one of those three harlots was getting smashed (literally) by B.I.G.

San Diego Taxi Drivers Required To Pass Body Odor Test

Smelly Cab Drivers

Talk about an invasion of privacy. Smell is often cultural, one person’s funk is the scent of Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar body lotion to another person. If you don’t like how your cabbie smells, just put your hand on your upper lip and pretend like you’re in deep thought. From The Guardian:

Body odor is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Taxi drivers say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination.

For years, inspectors with the San Diego regional airport authority run down their checklist for each cabbie proof of insurance, functioning windshield wipers, adequate tire treads, good brakes. Drivers are graded pass, fail or needs fixing. Anyone who flunks the smell test is told to change before picking up another customer.

Leaders of the United Taxi Workers of San Diego union say the litmus perpetuates a stereotype that predominantly foreign-born taxi drivers smell bad. A 2013 survey of 331 drivers by San Diego State University and Center on Policy Initiatives found 94% were immigrants and 65% were from East Africa.

Drivers wonder how inspectors determine who reeks. Driver Abel Seifu, 36, from Ethiopia, suspects they sniff inconspicuously during friendly conversations in the staging area. Airport authority spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield said there is “no standard process” to testing.
