The Sheryl Crow Theory of Cell Phones

I can’t tell if she’s fucking insane or dead on. I’ve had my fair share of super mooked conversations with various fiends about how or iphones are 100% murdering us and now I’m freaking the fuck out. MOTHERFUCKING WAVES OF DATA ARE FLYING AROUND/THRU US ALL DAY EVERYDAY. The WiFi is killing the bees and shit. FUCK WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE.

Dave Chappelle, Questlove and Neal Brennan Hung Out With Prince

Zay put me on to Bill Simmons’ blog back in like 2008. I fuck with him cause he’s a relatively normal dude. Loves some pop culture. Thinks he’s way funnier then he is, but is still funny. And he’s a ride or die sports fan. All that being said, he is a blatant NE homer and honestly I can’t be that mad cause I’m a blatant NYC homer. SO I’m gonna stop rambling about this shit and just watch the fucking video. I need some fucking coffee.

The Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown

I just want to start off with an apology to everyone for our lack of posting last week. I’m truly sorry about that.

I’ve been pretty depressed and going through a tough time. I think it’s similar to the post-Olympic depression Olympic athletes face. I read this article once where they interviewed a whole bunch of Olympic athletes. They were talking about how hard the come down is after the games end. For one month they are the absolute shit. Interviews on every TV show, endorsements, and the whole country’s sweetheart. Then the Olympics end and no one gives a fuck.

I think I’m going through a similar come down from the Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown. I thought I would be ecstatic because I actually did the unthinkable and completed the Triple Crown. All of my fiending and not sleeping over the last year was just practice for this moment. My moment came and I couldn’t have performed better. But instead of being proud of my fiend accomplishments, I just found myself nostalgic for the fiend summer that concluded.

If you don’t know what the Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown is, that’s okay because I just invented that shit like a week ago. Basically the Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown consists of the following legs during Labor Day Weekend:

LEG #1: Jersey Shore

 

LEG #2: Rock the Bells

LEG #3: Electric Zoo

The Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown: Completed

Seriously how the fuck am I supposed to come back to real life after that shit? How can you mix that much alcohol, mook, sexy bitches (of every race and some mixes I didn’t know existed), yams, molly, rolls, hoes, money, rappers, EDM, lights, special K, DJs, and of course all the crazy ass fiends out there, and ever expect to be normal again? I was so caught up in IF I COULD actually complete the The Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown, I never stopped to think IF I SHOULD.

Because I honestly think I did some permanent brain damage this weekend. At the very least all my children are going to be mentally retarded. I’ve been having Triple Crown flashbacks the last few days. I’ll be walking up 2nd avenue and a truck will honk its horn and I’ll immediately fist pump thinking I’m in DJais. I’ll take a mook nap and Cole will come on my radio alarm and I’ll wake up thinking I’m at rock the bells. I don’t even wanna talk about my Ezoo flashbacks, those shits are more like night terrors.

So I think I was just ridiculously hung over and really depressed that the summer and Triple Crown was all over. Shit was really effecting me, I was just moping around the last week or so.

Then came my birthday party last weekend; #Wave25: 25 and Still Mookin’. That was exactly what I needed. The level of fiending that took place at my birthday may have exceeded everything that went on during the The Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown. It was only around 1am when I realized how fucked up everyone was at my party and I looked over and saw fiends snorting special K in the middle of the club.  It was that touching moment that made me realize that the summer may be over, but the fun and fiending will never end. This whole year wasn’t preparation for the Tri-State Fiend Triple Crown, FIENDING IS A YEAR ROUND SPORT.

And now, we have officially entered FIEND FALL. Instead of being depressed about the end of the summer, I couldn’t be more focused for Fiend Fall. So while I still want to offer my deepest apologizes for the SMF absence, I can offer you guys a promise that the rest of the year is only going to get more fiended than ever before.

This is our year. The year of the fiend. And I’m back baby.

This Week

It’s been rough, but guess what?

IT’S FUCKING FRIDAY TOMORROW.

Tell em how we feel Rob!

So me and Wave went too goddamn hard this past week. Wave pulled off one of the most impressive Tri-State Triple Crowns I’ve ever seen. I went to EZOO, almost died, realized what I need to do to be a Diddy x Tyler Perry x Steve Stoute hybrid mogul and then jumped right back into the corporate world. It’s been fucking rough. But guess what?

We’re all alive.

We’re all grinding towards our future.

Our boy KO scored two TDs last night on Monday Night Football.

Shit.

Not much to complain about.

We’ll be back in full swing ASAP.

@oakshades

PS. As ya’ll prolly know, I’m a Jets fan and Wave is a Giants fan so it’s FUCK everyone but our teams… but KO is the homie so we gotta show love.

Struggles

I’m gonna be honest with you… I did way more drugs then I should have this weekend.

I’m struggling.

Wave is struggling too.

We are the biggest fucking fiends in the world. (maybe not the biggest but we’re up there)

#FiendFridays Pinball In-studio

Here’s somethin a lil different for this week’s Fiend Fridays… It’s a long weekend and fiends are hitting up festivals pretty much every day so pray for @oakshades fiended ass.

I got up with the homies of Daymolition.fr and after we wrapped up the ” I Ain’t Da One ” video we decided to just mob out in the stu.

I don’t even have a recording of this track to be honest, but it was damn fun to rap. @Cedbreeze on the production.

- Bas


BAS – FREESTYLE – U.S by daymolition-officiel
 

PS: Look at these FIENDS in the back haha. I’m not sure what homies were on that particular night. Shouts to Wave, Gunna, and 500.

SMF #TBT Battles Vol. 2: The Trammps – “Rubber Band” VS The Game / 50 Cent – “Hate it or Love it”

Last Week: Bobby “Blue” Bland VS. Jay-Z

This week we are highlighting one of the first and most famous disco bands of all time; The Trammps. Everyone knows the Trammps. You know the Trammps. You’ve heard them a million times and just maybe never knew their name. Ever hear of a song called Disco Inferno? BURRRRRN BABY BURN:

So yes, you do know The Trammps. But non-disco fans might not remember that a few years prior to their cult hit, they released their 8 track debut album “The Legendary Zing Album”. Knowledgeable music fans will recognize this album for their cover hit, “Zing Went Strings of My Heart”. However, it’s the lesser known “Rubber Band” that eventually became the foundation to The Game and 50 Cent’s hit record “Hate it or Love it”.

Produced by Cool & Dre, ”Hate it or Love it” is no doubt an amazing record and the most commercially successful song off “The Documentary”. In 2005 how could you really hate on that song? It featured arguably the biggest rapper at the time and the man reviving the west coast, over such an amazingly smooth and soulful beat. You really couldn’t hate it.

BUT, for the second week in a row, I’m siding with the original as the song I appreciate the most musically regardless of genre. Ultimately what it comes down to, “Rubber Band” is one of my favorite disco records of all time, and “Hate it or Love it”, no disrespect, is not even close to one of my favorite hip-hop records. As much as I like “Hate it or Love It”, it’s the soulful chorus and powerful vocals of The Tramps that captures me. “Rubber Band” evokes deeper emotions in a more meaningful way to me. When I hear “Hate it or Love it”, I should be instantly brought back to 2005 and that point in my life. It should bring me back to high school and become the soundtrack to all the crazy shit that was going on during this time. But instead when I hear the melody that was sampled, I’m instantly connected to the 70s and The Trammps. Very often I’ve found myself singing “Stretch me out, like a rubber band, and you got my life in the palm of your hand” over 50 Cent’s hook. It’s for these reasons that although I love both songs in different ways, if I had to choose, I would go with The Tramps.

But like always, the choice is yours fiends. You decide.

VS.
