    Fight Night Round 4

    jesus!!!christ this game looks good

    ^ ^
    It is.

    I’ve been playing the demo on Xbox 36O. It’s real good. They totally rebuilt the whole game and it’s mechanics. The games physics engine and gameplay is new. Nothing was carried over from the previous “Fight Nights”.

    I’m copping it on Thursday.

    true but he also struggling to stay relevant like everyone else. nicca 50 years old wearing teenager white suburban threads like thehundreds, performing at dunk exchanges and fruity shit like that. what parts of the game is that. pimp c said “a treel work in the wheel, a pimp not a simp, get the dope fiends higher than the goodyear blimp” — if he was alive to see bun rocking skate gear and co-signing all these young asswhipes, he might hop in his cadillac brougham and run over that motherfucker to knock some sense into him.

    wtf parts of the game is that, pimp was nicer than bun (?)

    damn it’s the other way around, i was always wondering how someone with so much natural born shwag could pick an eskay lookalike as his roll-dog

    isn’t that the lollipop melody

  39. Lelan Says:

    Man bun b is smart hes gonna ride of off drakeamania and any other new young talent creating buzz insted of being sum old ass hater talking about back in my day

  40. Latarian Milton Says:

    whether bun b could be considered a Hipster…?

    ^

    u know how there’s always the old dude at the club – well bun is the old dude at the hipster convention – in chi-town u always have the old head in line for jordans or the old head at the hipster bar where all the dudes wear bowties & nike blazers and all the girls have short bangs and ironic tattoos. that’s bun – the old dude hanging with the kids but he’s just barely not so corny that he avoids looking like a total visual pun. but close.

  41. The Shot Clock aka servin through my burglar bars Says:

    Bun and Pimp worked well precisely because they were so different….that’s duo logic 101

    You are the company u keep and Bun is doin it right by stayin around the cats on the cutting edge of the genre..

    seems like he’s the most sought after co-signer in the game right now

    Damn… I just downloaded that Tyga “The Potential” Mix tape… That shit is fire.. I’m not gonna Lie I slept on Tyga until I heard this Mix-tape… I had to go download the older stuff because of that mix-tape..When ya’ll get a chance go get that..!

  58. j2daedubblef Says:

    fyi that show was insane…e.s.g. (htown legend) freestyled for a good min, paul wall performed with chamillionaire (which hasn’t happened in a good while since their old beef popped off), chamil & lil flip performed, devin the dude performed, the cool kids (even though mos ppl there didnt even know who they were LOL), lupe is just insane with his energy and swag, and then drake to top it all off. only a hip-hop legend like bun b could do a show like this. lupe called him the greatest rapper alive last night and both lupe and drake last night gave htown insane props. ps. scarface is not the representer for houston since hes been livin n ATL for the past decade, bun b is the OG of houston, he runs the city and is one of the best in the game ever! face can stay in ATL and stay irrelevant.
