    @ fux, i don’t blame fabe even tho lol i agree that peeps who been broke forever shouldn’t be screaming recession now

    that said:

    1 – dow is under 8,000. that is terrifying. basically what you have baked into that price is the belief among a vast majority of investors that this will be the longest and most painful recession in recent memory

    2 – core prices, excluding food and energy items, fell 0.1 percent — the first fall in more than 25 years

    3 – new home starts – lowest since 1959

    4 – car sales plummeting so rapidly that big 3 probably don’t have cash to finish out the year

    5 – deflation very likely. asset prices keep falling and nobody buying

    and more and more and more and more. shit’s disgusting. every day we wake up to more pain. i don’t know when the bad news will stop.

    Chea, shits disgusting B.

    I stay counting the guap in my pocket, I know Im blessed; hit my high of income this year and I hoping it doesnt go down. But for the first time in the 30yrs of my companies history there is going to be Layoff’s.

  7. TheCo!!inB Says:

    “fuck talkin ’bout a recession, shit’s depressing”
    all jokes aside though Chea niggas don’t really understand the magnitude the economic slump is potentially going to have on the economy because they don’t know recession to depression is a slow process. poor Obama signed on to lead the country at one of if not its most inopportune (sp) time. Roosevelt spent 16 years as president trying to find a resolve for the great depression and what we’re going through now is potentially worse…shit is scary, i’ve been tryin to find ways to protect my neck but my portfolio aint that strong yet.

    I don’t know, I can’t fuck with those xx3’s. or really anything after the 11’s.

  13. eskay Says:

    I like looking at the 15’s but I don’t know if I’d rock.

    niggas don’t really understand the magnitude the economic slump is potentially going to have on the economy

    ^

    it’s getting to a point where it’s hard to miss though. all throughout the south side of the chi – foreclosures, boarded-up cribs, sale signs, abandoned cribs. bush was so quick to create an “ownership” culture among people that had no business being homeowners and now those people are out their money and their house when they could have been renting a modest home and investing a nest egg. i am truly terrified of the long-term ramifications of the real estate crisis on a lower class that was duped into buying homes. shit i was reading the other day about a jamaican woman in queens who had a tiny income who owned FIVE townhomes because her bank kept coming to her saying how cheap they could lend her the money. now she’s out all the homes, credit destroyed, etc etc. i mean truly awful. the desperation has not yet begun but it is inevitable. crime will most certainly increase — as it always does in times of economic difficulty — and from there, who knows. not trying to sound apocalyptic, but the potential here is bad, bad, bad

  15. TheCo!!inB Says:

    eskay how can you only fucks with the J’s up to 11 and still not fuck with Gourmet?

  16. I Fux Says:

    my Homie Omar just texted me:

    hank moody(from Californication) is ifux, a little writing, a little weed, some drinking, got a daughter, cheat a little bit with bitches, say stupid shit. THATS YOU NIGGA TELL ME IM LYING

  17. eskay Says:

    >>eskay how can you only fucks with the J’s up to 11 and still not fuck with Gourmet?

    I don’t see what one has to do with the other. and I never said I didn’t fuck with Gourmets, I said Supras > Gourmets.

    Im fuckin confusing myself, ok last try at this

    I dont really fuck with anything after the 14’s….ok wow smh

  23. chea Says:

    i actually don’t really eff with anything past jordan 7 (unless it came with a countdown pack – i.e. the ones that came with the carmines and the hares), but the 23s have a little magic to them. i haven’t bought any 23s yet but the unc/chicago/motorsports pack is ill and these breds are ill. clean and futuristic with a small nod to the past. they probably won’t be classics but they have a little swag on ’em

  24. TheCo!!inB Says:

    chea
    all niggas have to do is look at what happened in michigan with General Motors in the 80’s and put it on a larger scale. I live in Palmdale California which this small city alone has over 2000 foreclosures. everyone can’t afford to commute to the LA like they used to so this retail town is folding up little by little. The decline is evident but the diversion of our new president has some of america forgetting how real the shit is. everyone working so damn hard to live a middle class lifestyle is really what fucked us up, and banks figured we’ll approve just about everybody and had no idea on how to control the back end of their “empowerment” era.

    I’ve never seen not one nigga freaking those XX3’s in a way that made me say “them shits is cold”. I can’t see what those can be worn with other than short to play basketball.

    them shits look to me like JB was like “aight, let’s make the ugliest thing possible and see if niggas will buy it.

    as a matter of fact, I think they’ve been playing that same game since like the 16’s.

  51. EnglandRepresent Says:

    This means you took a shit?? Lmao

    ^^Yup. *daps Digi* You know how when a dog does a crap and then shakes his back legs and waggles his tail, that’s how I felt after wrestling with that bad boy. No joke, I had a curry in there from last night, plus a cheeky cheeseburger I munched after blazing a zoot plus a bacon sandwich from this morning. Needless to say I’ve got severe ring sting now. Owwwwwwww.

    Blogs I have been reading recently : drugskillhiphop.wordpress.com and mkultra.ca . Good discovery.

    the song “welcome to heartbreak” is not moving me. too strained. neega if u really wanted kids you’d have 8 by now. stfu about how all u have is cribs and sportscars — think of the cats with 3 kids who just want one roof over their head and gas in their beat-up maxima. shit’s silly to release a song like that in a recession if ur trying to be deep

  63. EnglandNash Says:

    This is my first comment and can i just say that you guys at nahright have enhanced my life thouroughly (sp).

    Anyways, I was reading your comments about the economic downturn, collapse, recession etc and thought I’d add my tuppence. Being a student with the student loan system means that I’m going to be paying off £21,000 plus in around two years time. Doing economics you’d think that I won’t find it too hard to get a job, but when you think people in the service sector will deffinitely be cutting jobs, training and recruitment the future really is not that bright even for those with higher education.

    Anyways, thank you nahright for enabling me to enter a world of new hip hop and intelligent thinking by black people.

    Nas > Hov… I said it.
