The ONLY Reason to Watch South Beach Tow

South Beach Tow has become one of my favorite TV shows as of late. There's really only one reason to watch South Beach Tow and that is Berniece. If you don't know Berniece, check her out below in a clip from the show.

The show comes on Tru TV. Honestly, the stuff that happens on this show is so outrageous that I'm starting to think it's all staged. Even if it is, it's still pretty hilarious.

"A" for excitement. "F" for execution. "N" for Nassatall!!!

Elevator Prank Video

You know, I thought this was a little funny initially but then I wondered what would happen if they put lil Roscoe from "'round the corner" in that elevator. Might not be as funny.

Today, in Questionable Vigilante Justice News

Vigilante: A member of a volunteer committee organized to suppress and punish crime summarily (as when the processes of law are viewed as inadequate); a self-appointed doer of justice (source: Merriam-Webster Online)

Clearly, these clowns in Florida have a thing for vigilante justice. First, George Zimmerman, now this idiot, Michael David Dunn.

Apparently (read: allegedly), Mr. Dunn took it upon himself to pull up to a convenience store, see that there were a group of kids in an SUV playing loud music and asked them to turn down the music. From there, an argument ensued (shocker), and ended with Dunn firing 8 shots into the SUV (killing one person) and then fleeing the scene with his girlfriend who had arrived at the store with him.

There are a couple of interesting observations I made when reading the Gawker article about this incident:
  1. Dunn was in town for his son's wedding and had a weapon in his possession. I don't know about ya'll but I doubt my parents will be packing heat when they head to my wedding ceremony. Maybe he was gonna leave the gun in the car (I hope) but really, why does he need the gun? I don't know about gun laws in Florida but I'm guessing that you can carry a gun around for no good reason (no, the right to bear arms isn't a good reason) and as a result, shyt like this can happen. If he did not have a gun on him would anyone have died? There's my contribution to gun control in the U.S. Stop letting just any ole' non-active-law-enforcement mofo walk around with guns just because they have a permit and are a self-described "gun collector".
  2. Why can't people just mind their own business and keep it moving? Seriously! I'm not gonna be out of town pulling up next to kids in an SUV telling them to turn down their music. I'm gonna do what NORMAL PEOPLE DO, shake your head and/or laugh and walk into the store saying something slick in my head, get my stuff, walk out, shake my head AGAIN, then promptly get back in my car and leave. Loud music ain't hurtin' nobody and it's only temporary if you're going to the store and then leaving. Stop trying to be a daggon vigilante! I could see if you saw these kids raping someone in the SUV, then it makes sense and you should do something. But playing loud music, c'mon son!
Of course, there are 3 sides to a story and I'm sure there will be more facts to come but this feels too Trayvon-esque to not raise an eyebrow and wonder why people at least two people in the state of Florida seem to think that they have the authority to serve their version of "justice". This is gonna remain my perspective on this unless it's proven that these kids fired at him, threatened him with a weapon, or in some other way posed a physical/deadly threat to him.

Lyrically Linked: Young Jeezy - Done It Again

Best joint I've heard from Jeezy in a minute.

This for every ghetto in the world
Every little boy, little girl
I don't know you but I feel your pain
So for real I'm making it rain
We waiting on a savior, maybe Barack
Cop a new drop head that's missing the top
It's us against the world, we playing to win
We done it again

What the hell's going on this evening?
Feeling like Trayvon Martin, I'm barely breathing
On my back, looking into the eyes of my killer
You can take my life, but I'm still that nigga
What does Romney know about my ghetto to say the least?
Last time your partner got killed over a Caprice
Tell me thats the cost of life, a box Chevy
Make you wanna call Katrina up - Who broke the levy?
Got nothing but love for New Orleans they bounced back
See first the water came in and left just like that
See one thing about my people we got pride
See we work 'til we got laid off and not fired
GM go bankrupt, we out of work
That'll drive a single father in Detroit straight berserk
When you can't feed your family and kids, what's the solution?
Only one word for that: a Revolution (Shit)
Now Chi-Town looking like a war zone
Like they went to Afghan and brought the war home
When all the penitentiaries packed just like the club
And its supposed to be the land of the free, at least it was
99% of the country - they in debt
Trillion dollar deficit, nigga that's a definite
Got two words for that, thats just duty
Can't fix in one term what Bush fucked up in 2 (What?)

"Ladies and gentleman, the Kit Kat Club is proud to present..."

THROWBAAAAAAAAACK!!!! The polka dot prince, Kwame!

Back when rap was a lot more fun and a lot less belligerent, lol.

When I first started listening to rap, Special Ed and Kwame were like the first two artists that I really liked. This took me way back, lol.

Dope Album Cover!

That's the album cover for Big Boi's "Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors" album. I'm not sure how the album will turn out but the one single I've heard "Lines (feat. A$AP Rocky and Phantogram)" is pretty good.

As for the album cover art, I think it's pretty neat, even when you consider that the animated effects won't be there on the printed version of the cover. But for web distribution to help build hype/buzz for the release, this animated version isn't too bad of an idea. I'm surprised more people haven't leveraged the powers of the not-so-useful-anymore animated GIF format.

PINK has some dope performances

I'm basing this solely on the two performance below. I don't listen to her music but I have seen two performances by PINK that I thought were creative, innovative, and outside the norms of what alleged, so-called "artists" do nowadays. I'll admit that I don't follow all these awards shows too closely and monitor who has the best performances but I have somehow caught two performances by PINK that I think were really great. One is from the 2010 Grammys and the other from the American Music Awards the other night.

Beee-Yonce stans, has she ever done anything close to this since I know someone reading this is thinking "dat bench ain't better than B doe!"

The Broner/DeMarco Fight

My cousin, Thomas "Topp Dawg" Williams is a professional boxer and was on the undercard for the Broner/DeMarco fight until his bout was cancelled at the last minute. That was my primary (read: only) reason to go to Atlantic City. I didn't realize that Broner was THIS GUY and that I would be in for another ridiculous performance (both in terms of his boxing ability and his efforts to entertain before, during, and after the bout) by Broner.

As you'll see below, Broner danced his way to the ring with Kendrick Lamar alongside (a great surprise for me as a huge fan of Kendrick's album, "good kid, maad city") and subsequently put on a boxing exhibition reminiscent (tongue-in-cheek) of Floyd Mayweather Jr. on some levels. All his shenanigans aside, Broner appears to be a highly skilled boxer. AKA, Youngin is NICE! I'd like to see him when he fits some solid competition if he hasn't already even though DeMarco was the champ until last night.

Aside from that Special K also told me he used the phrase "no homo" in the post-fight press conference and I'm pretty sure he asked someone to brush his hair after entering the ring. Not to mention he did some sort of Harlem Shake/Stanky Leg dance after he knocked DeMarco out, lol. Shenanigans I tell you!

Eddie Murphy - "Put Your Mouth on Me"

Yeah sooooo, I don't know why I felt the need to post it but I did and just rolled with it. Never forget (lol)...


You know good-and-well I wasn't going to let this past Sunday's performance go without mentioning the most exciting player in the NFL did you? I would like to reference you all back to my post predicting his numbers for the season. I predicted he'd throw for almost 4,000 yards, 22 TD, and 15 INT. Right now he's on pace to have less than 10 INTs and throw for close to 22 TDs. He definitely has a chance to be a really great quarterback. I'm not as impressed right now with what he can do on the deal as much as I am with how level-headed and grounded he seems to be. For someone his age, his humility and maturity are both pretty impressive. My Skins aren't likely to make the playoffs this year but things look hopeful for the future. And not that "buy up all the free agents and a coach" in the off-season hope they used to sell every year.

Another Reason Newark (NJ) Mayor Corey Booker is AWESOME

Aside from being a very informed, grounded, energetic, devoted, and otherwise great politician Corey Booker evidently has a great level of patience for reckless Twittering.
