    he’s allowed himself to become this though.

    SFG was very exciting when it came out (n)….and going bak listenin to the other tapes u could see he was an artist that was willing to evolve.

  56. landlord Says:

    *excerpt*

    It’s all Michael Jordan’s fault.

    Tiger Woods became a self-indulgent, sex-crazed narcissist because he hung out with the wrong crowd — namely, hard-partying, high-stakes hoopsters Jordan and Charles Barkley, the shamed golfer’s longtime former adviser claims in an explosive new interview.

    “I told him, ‘Stay away from that son of a bitch [Jordan], because he doesn’t have anything to offer to the f- – -ing world in which he lives except playing basketball, which he did yesterday,’ ” lawyer John Merchant told the latest edition of Vanity Fair magazine, which hits newsstands today.

    Tiger temptress and Las Vegas nightclub hostess Jamie Jungers added, “One of the times [Woods] arrived in town, he texted me, ‘I’m gambling with Charles Barkley. Text me when you’re here, and I’ll tell the gate you’re coming.’

  57. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    After Kelis fell off, there was an opening for the lane of Weird Black Girl, and J. Monae took it. Good for her.

    DAMN! I agree with that statement but that aint got shit to do with Tiger. That nigga is a grown man and makes his own decisions. That shit is hilarious tho especially cuz i just saw Antoine Walker on ESPN and they was trying to imply that Jordan might be the reason he fucked up his bread.
