KiD CuDi Mistaken for Burglar by LAPD



KiD CuDi found himself in handcuffs yesterday in Los Angeles after the LAPD mistook him and his crew for burglary suspects as they left a photoshoot with NME on Melrose Ave. Five patrol cars rolled up on the entourage and temporarily detained them before the cops realized that they were racially profiling wrong. After the incident, CuDi explained to NME that he wasn’t sure what happened.

“Who knows, really, the story changed a bunch,” he said. “I’m just happy to be back. I’m a free man! For that moment I was not free. I was in handcuffs. It did not feel very comfortable.”

He added that he did not begrudge the police for the error: “We’re in LA, it’s a rowdy place in the United States, you know? And a lot of shit goes down. And these cops have to use force. So it’s, like, I understand that they were doing their job. I just wish we weren’t in that place at that time.”

Fuck that, LAPD stays losing. Another pic after the jump.

    Farve is turning back into a pumpkin. He does it every year they should only play him 8 games a year


    to be honest it aint Favre’s fault… its the o-line and EJHenderson’s injury… neither Favre nor APeterson have any time or space to do anything… defenders STAY in the Viking backfield… i could swear Panthers’ defensive end Julius Peppers had on a purple jersey and attended Viking practices all week …

    By the time of his death he had committed more than 9,000 books to memory and Nasa made him the subject of MRI-based research, hoping that technology used to study the effects of space travel on the brain would help explain his mental capabilities.

    He would read eight books a day, taking just ten seconds to read a page. He could read two pages simultaneously, his left eye reading the left page and his right eye reading the right page



    ^ yo where is the full story of this. *daps*

    …and that forever young song is dope. Anytime a man reflects on his childhood, the present, and the certainty of future death, its a topic that requires some deep thinking. Get over the flow, and listen to the words man.
