    please dont start with this church shit… ESKAY, post next months EyeCandy or something… Damn!

    ***LOL…the closest we get to eye candy is if Nikki Minaj drops a new freestyle, and Eskay posts her infamous lollipop pic….not that I’m complaining, though, because I wouldn’t mind if that exact pic was on every post…

    I went out to some bar on bleeker street one time and met up from this broad from Queens, she coerced me into tryin’ them shits, needless to say i got sloshed beyond comprehension and i had to leave my whip in the city and got a ticket, FML.

    i tried sake bombs for the first time recently, that shit tastes perfect…

    i was at my boy’s crib last year and it was his brothers birthday. they had two cases of Corona and some Jagermeister and were doing Jager-bombs but i didn’t wanna *white it up* with them cause i thought it would be disgusting to mix if it’s not normal beer. in hindsight maybe i should have went with the bro thing to do since i don’t know when’s the next time i’ll be with white boys at the bar, on jager

  33. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    According to my recollection i didn’t beat that night but when i woke up in the morning i definitely pulled her by both legs and yelled “get over here” (c) Mortal Kombat, anyone else ever go home with a bitch but beat in the morning?

    yo, me and my boy got demolished off sake bombs one night on mcdougal st. so these three white boys come in to eat and we’re wrecked. somehow I ended getting into a pissing match with the biggest dude out the group. I don’t even know what happened, but dude ended up falling back. I’ll always remember that because I was hammered and I wouldn’t have backed down and that dude looked like a fucking linebacker.

    Everytime I think of rowhouses I think about the Philly Riots and cops burning down a whole block with one match.

    this clip doesn’t have the whole scene, but this is most likely where that cover comes from.

  48. ian Says:

    Cover is absolutely from the ‘Killer of Sheep’ movie, recognized it immediately. Great movie, ahead of it time in many ways although its developed a reputation of such mythic proportions over time that some think its overrated when they finally see it.

  49. ian Says:

    Let me edit myself: if that cover image is not directly from ‘Killer of Sheep’, it was definitely inspired by it.

  52. Jared Says:

    The album cover is directly from Killer of Sheep, not merely inspired by it. I don’t have a screen shot, but the photograph which appears on the album is at roughly 47:40 in the film.
