    those 4 drake tracks, minus the one with birdman, because birdman fucking sucks, are pretty damn good. i still think j. cole > drake (slightly) when it comes to hip-hop.

    lol @ Lebron taking up for his teammate by tryna get a dunk the next 3 times down the court.

  7. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    ^

    this is what i’m sayin. he went OVER him

    and remember when dude did a one handed 360…..and turned in the opposite direction, in an NBA game?!?!?

    i mean, its funny to me when people actually have debates about it. like its not even a fucking contest.

    shits ridiculous.

    I remmbr when i first saw this nigga dunk. he literally looked like he was playing in a different field of gravity.

  16. Frank Says:

    ***in DC, all they play is “Forever”, “Run this Town”, and “Whatever u Like” (like it’s a new song, or something)…

  18. Joe 88 Says:

    It’s been a few good slam dunk competitions in A.V (after vince) but the problem is excecution. Them niggas never seem to get that good dunk right on the first try, which makes it wack cause you know what there about to do.

    When vince carter did his very first dunk in the dunk contest I KNEW IT WAS OVER, it felt like I was there, nigga did a opposite windmill 360 tomahawk dunk to start the contest off.

    But it’s been a few good dunk competitions afterwards

    D-12 with the superman dunk
    Gerald Green
    J-Rich
    Igudola

    Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd that’s about it.

  20. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    You know you got a nigga good on the court when he wants to fight you. I got a few tales….funny shit…

  21. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    vince from the raptors fucked the game up, real talk….but it’s weird, b/c i think lebron jumps higher than that nigga, and he don’t even look like he really tryin to jump.

    i seen this nigga lebron double pump THEN duck so he wouldn’t hit his head on the rim….what kinda shit is that?!

    ^

    yo, i’ll never forget when he did that dunk where he hung on the rim with half his arm through the net.

    the commentators were speechless for like a good 3 or 4 seconds. Like they literally couldn’t understand what they just saw.

  33. Joe 88 Says:

    I like the D-12 dunk where he threw the oop off the back of the backboard to himself and dunked it. His excecution in that dunk contest made it interesting, unlike midget mac nate robinson needed 58 mulligans just to make one dunk.

    And they still gave him the W. I was pissed

    ***they play that Lady Gaga collabo alot, but DC radio is hardly regional- more like top 40, or, as a DJ from WPGC put it, “our job is to play your favorite songs, not break artists”—true story, SMH….

    Im sayin…unprecedented…

    Nowadays its too much props & bullshit involved lol

  41. land Says:

    Cosign Shot Clock… That dunk he did with the inside of his elbow, was the sickest contest dunk ever.FACT..also the dunk he did from behind the basket out of bounds.. SMH

    And they still gave him the W. I was pissed

    ***the fact that Dwight let himself be used as a prop (none), gave me a whole new level of respect for that nigga…that was an example of sportsmanship at its finest….when ‘Bron walked off the court in a huff like an angry 9 yr old child, however….

  43. Smoke Greene Says:

    She my Josephine Baker, may need morphine the deeper that I take her

    So many LOL worthy lines in that one but The-Dream kills that hook & the beat is on some bonfire on a foreign beach type shit.
