  12. catch22 Says:

    ….

  13. Willy Swagger Says:

    Let’s begin, what, where, why, or when
    will all be explained like instructions to a game
    See I’m not insane, in fact, I’m kind of rational
    when I be asking you, “Who is more dramatical?”
    This one or that one, the white one or the black one
    pick the punk, and I’ll jump up to attack one
    KRS-One is just the guy to lead a crew
    right up to your face and dis you
    Everyone saw me on the last album cover
    Holding a pistol something far from a lover
    Beside my brother, S-C-O-T-T
    I just laughed, cause no one can defeat me
    This is lecture number two, “My Philosophy”
    Number one, was “Poetry” you know it’s me
    This is my philosophy, many artists got to learn
    I’m not flammable, I don’t burn
    so please stop burnin, and learn to earn respect
    ’cause that’s just what KR collects
    see, what do you expect when you rhyme like a soft punk
    you walk down the street and get jumped
    You got to have style, and learn to be original
    and everybody’s gonna wanna diss you
    like me, we stood up for the South Bronx
    and every sucka mc had a response
    You think we care? I know that they are on the tip
    my posse from the Bronx is thick
    and we’re real live, we walk correctly
    a lot of suckas would like to forget me
    but they can’t, cause like a champ
    I have got a record of knocking out the frauds in a second
    on the mic, I believe that you should get loose
    I haven’t come to tell you I have juice
    I just produce, create, innovate on a higher level
    I’ll be back, but for now just seckle!

  14. hip hop cops Says:

    >>they’d better win

    i will also be invited onto the court at halftime to have sex with alicia keys

  22. Jud Buechler Says:

    I think Maryland Breeds the best hoopers after New York.

    Maryland/D.C. area is loaded with talent.

    Virginia breeds a lot of world class athletes. Something is in the water on those coastal lines.

    Texas breeds the best football teams. (for Higschool)

    Florida breeds the fastest and best athletes for football

    California might breed the best PG’s for the NBA

    Ohio Breeds the freakish athletes. (Lebron, Clarett, Orlando Pace)

  23. Willy Swagger Says:

    Do You think with that Snooze on him KRS-1 holds the guiniss book of world records for holding his breath under water?

  24. Willy Swagger Says:

    Cali Football Players = FLorida

    and CHicago Basketball Players are the bessssssss

  25. Jud Buechler Says:

    Chicago Is one the best area’s to test your basketball skills.

  26. BK2LV Says:

    wtf chris rock running with the mob

    “That’s why I want to blacken this girl up, totally,” the man who is alleged to be Rock says on the recording. “I want to make her out to be a lying, scumbag, manipulative (expletive).”

  73. Jud Buechler Says:

    Gov. David Patterson’s wife could get it early. That nigga was a sex fiend. I see why she went on and “cheated on him, when they were apart. That nigga was probably getting mad pussy. She prolly got off one like “I’ll show him”. We all know he still getting his.

  82. Mo Betta the Go Getta Says:

  85. Mo Betta the Go Getta Says:

    Who Else thinks Arod maybe Homo? I honestly think he is the classic closet case of homosexuality, not that I am well versed in all things homo-erotic but I can see Fag pretty clearly

  86. Mo Betta the Go Getta Says:

    damn I am a year older than Grady………

    Sizemore signed a letter of intent to play football and baseball at the University of Washington. At the time of his high school graduation, Sizemore was Cascade’s all-time leader in rushing yards with 3,081 yards and interceptions with 16.

  87. Jud Buechler Says:

    2. Every song he does these days, he’s just talking about other rappers

    “these other rappers are blah blah blah I’m like blah blah”

    and the punchlines here were horrible. and the contradicting peace talk/gun talk

    and jesus christ would someone put a hole in Preemo’s head please? this nigga’s beats is trash. is it mandatory that anyone who does a song with him they not allowed to have a real chorus?

  101. rex hussla Says:

    I have a friend who’s been stuck on the Yankees’ AAA team for years. He’s started in centerfield for them in AAA for a while now, any other team he’d be playing by now but the Yankees don’t have time to wait on prospects.

    ———————

    … that was so gully … you could read Piazza’s lips (no homo) … he said “What the fuck is YOUR problem?!” … but he didnt dare approach the big Texan … that was the highlight of Clemens career … the 2000 Subway Series, he had the Mets COMPLETELY shook … and Jeter had clutch hit after hit … my favorite World Series of All Time …

  107. rex hussla Says:

    Nah Piazza didn’t want none…

    I was looking at Youtube videos of Bruce Bowen’s dirty plays…they have three or four minute clips with all of his dirtiest plays, why hasn’t anybody whooped his ass?!?!?! My blood was boiling!!!!!

    Bowen’s Worst Victims:
    Vince Carter
    Amare
    AI
    Ray Allen
    Steve Nash

    all of those were mad blatant, especially AI and Amare

  108. Charles Oakley Says:

    That Lupe Fiasco video is up at 2dopeboyz…

    and if you didn’t know, now you know n****s

  109. landLORD Says:

    … Bowen got Jamal Crawford and Marbury pretty bad last year, and Isiah got fined for screaming at them to break his legs next time he does that …

  110. rex hussla Says:

    Nah his name is Kevin Reese…he’s not a future all-star but he’s been mad consistent if you check his stats, he could start for a bad team, platoon for a decent team…no shot for the Yankees, somehow Melky Cabrera got a shot…it’s not like they wanted Melky to work out, they just happened to not be able to trade for someone and he played good enough to stick it out.

  111. Jud Buechler Says:

    Piazza was like a Lumber Jack gay. I used to think Piazza was a rough dude with the goatee and the way he played and he was a tough dude. But those hair commercials killed it. Plus there were rumors that he was gay, so I dont know. Then I started watching closely and it seemed like he was too much in keeping his rough goatee look manicured. I dont know dude is suspect.

  112. Dem Says:

    CC Sabathia

    ^ went to VHS with dude. we helped each other cheat pass geometry tests.

  113. landLORD Says:

    … Kevin Reese got a few at-bats last year … he looked overmatched though … no disrespect … he prolly knew he was only up for about a week and tried to impress … he’s got a couple prospects ahead of him in the Yankee depth chart … Austin Jackson (the next Yankee future-star) & Brett Gardner …

  114. Jud Buechler Says:

    Bruce Bowen comes off as a sneaky dirty player, like he doesnt do anything wrong. He has no B-ball sklls whatsoever, and is capabable of hitting a three or two, due to teams leaving hime WIDE open.

    If he was a hood type dude then cats would repsect him for playing rough. Scottie pippen has natural D. Bruce Bowen has worked on D and has to do extra things to stay with his defender. It’s his hustle that gets him by.

    He doesnt have a dirty personality but he is a dirty player.

  115. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    whutupdoe
    people think im lyin when I say I could throw a 89/90 mph fastball at 16
    they dont realize I didnt like baseball enuff to figure out WTF as strike zone is

    LF: my 13yr old son is an alien he told me that he watched a documentary on 911…then he insisted that I go to the font “wingdings” and type in the flight number Q33NY…maybe im late but its still kinda ill
