Amidst my feelings of Coachella withdrawal and depression yesterday I somehow managed to feel another powerful, equally terrible emotion: overwhelming anger. Because yesterday was one of those times where the disconnect between Washington and the feelings of the vast majority of Americans was shown. It was one of those times where you realized how powerless our collective opinion can be. It was one of those times where I just wanted to scream. I couldn’t even enjoy the bowl I smoked when I got home last night.
Please learn what a real terrorists is though and stop stereotyping people from one religion or region of the planet. We are all human. There are just a few truly evil people out there but they come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and religions.
According to Tim Grover, Michael Jordan didn’t just eat bad pizza (nor was he hung over) before heroically playing in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals (Jordan’s 38 points pushed the Chicago Bulls to a 3-2 series lead, and one step closer to their 5th title.) MJ was poisoned by someone in Utah, claims Grover. Per True Hoop (via EOB): “He was poisoned for the ‘Flu Game’, Grover said. ‘Everyone called it a flu game, but we sat there. We were in the room.’ [...] ‘We were in Park City, Utah, up in a hotel,’ Grover says. ‘Room service stopped at like nine o’clock. And he got hungry and we really couldn’t find any other place to eat. So we said eh, the only thing I can find is a pizza place. So we say all right, order pizza. We had been there for a while. Everybody knew what hotel, Park City was not many hotels back then. So everyone kind of knew where we were staying. So we order pizza. They come to deliver it and five guys came to deliver this pizza. I take the pizza and I tell them: ‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this. … I’ve just got a bad feeling about this.’ Out of everybody in the room, [Jordan] was the only one who ate. Nobody else had it. And then at 2 o’clock in the morning I get a call to my room. I come to the room and he’s curled up in the fetal position. We’re looking at him, finding the team physician at that time. And immediately I told him it’s food poisoning. Guaranteed. Not the flu.’”
Ok so the mainstream media said MJ had the Flu. Jalen Rose said it was a hangover. And Tim Grover said it was poison. I’ve always thought it was the Flu. Noway MICHAEL FUCKING JORDAN is gonna be getting bodied during the NBA FINALS. Every hooper knows that boozing is the worst shit to do if you wanna get buckets. Now that I hear this pizza story… IT WAS 100% POSION. I don’t trust anyone who can live in Utah and not run away immediately.
PS. You wouldn’t do it? Your favorite team. They’ve been your favorite team since you can remember loving sports. They have to play MICHAEL FUCKING JORDAN. Dude is like Jesus in his own pair of Nike Air Jesus kicks just owning everyone in the NBA, and your team has to play him. And then he orders a pizza. You wouldn’t rub your balls (or vagina?) all over that pizza and put some cleaning supplies in the tomato sauce? I wouldn’t, but I bet some fucking crazy fucks in Utah would.
I stopped listening to ‘Get Lucky’ to watch this trailer (I put ‘Get Lucky’ back on immediately though. These homies came at the Illuminati and said that the MIB are real in the same movie. I cannot wait to see this shit.
These are exciting times. We just launched our new site. I just got my masters back for Quarter Water Raised Me Vol. II. The Knicks are good again. Dreamville gearing up to go back on the road so you know the Fiends in tow with mook to blow. Oh, and it’s spring in NEW YORK FUCKIN CITY.
I wrote this song at a cross road in my life, it could have made Volume I but I opted to hold off. I was self-admittedly fucking up royally at the time and was faced with two options : see your life expectancy dwindle Or for once in your life dedicate and discipline yourself to achieve something greater.
It’s two years later.
I can’t complain. We’re blessed. Getting Stronger everyday.
Shepard Fairey was the Creative Director at the first ad agency I ever worked for. He also bounced about 4 months before I started working there, but I always thought his work was fucking dope. His story is pretty dope, especially since the HOPE picture he became famous for was not meant to be such a culture shifting piece. But then again, what culture shifting piece of art was supposed to be a culture shifting piece of art off jump?
