Welcome to the blog of B Daht Obama! I've taken a new approach to MY blogs - I write letters to people. Hopefully one day some of the people can actually read the letters I write. If you have an idea of a letter you'd like me to write to someone (they don't HAVE to be in Sports) send it to theescore@yahoo. Hope you enjoy, and comments are STRONGLY encouraged!
When they 1st started these "Cyphers" they were better than pants with pockets, now, they've fallen off like a bad batch of dope. This 1st clip, I think the dude XV was witty, and I'll give love to the Chris Sutton cat because he's repping NC, but overall, a B at BEST!
But THEN, the Cypher get RIDICULOUSLY horrid. I wouldn't put my money on ANY of these dudes. Ever. But maybe I'm tripping.... YOU be the judge:
Rumor has it that these are the 2 weaker of the Cyphers, and may not even get aired. That'd be smart BET. Rumor also has it there are 2 other Cyphers: 1 with Big K.R.I.T & Kendrick Lamar, and 1 with Maybach Music Group: Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Pill & Wale.....now THAT might be POPPINGTON.
The Anniversary of Aaliyah's death is 3 days away. 2001 was a tough year. Less than a month after her death, we were mourning for the victims of 9-11.
Aaliyah's passing was SO tragic though. Something I will NEVER forget:
August 25, 2001: Club Icehouse
I remember it being around 12:30am, maybe 1am, and the DJ stopped the music.
âWow! May I have everyoneâs attention?? This story JUST broke yâall: Aaliyah is dead. She crashed in an airplane leaving a runway apparently, and Aaliyah is DEAD.â
The silence that engulfed the audience was DEAFNING.
I looked to the left: I saw a female consoling her female friend.
I looked to the right: I saw a hoodlum, teary eyed, pouring his Moet on the floor âIn Remembrance Ofâ.
The DJ then went into an Aaliyah set, playing all her hits: Age Ainât Nothing But a Number, Try Again, Rock the Boat, One in a Million, Back and Forth, If your girl only knew, Hot Like Fire, 4 Page Letter, etc.
I even had to sneak and wipe an almost tear away (as to not be the ONLY person in the club appearing to be an emotionless bastard).
If you werenât emotional at that point, you werenât human.
It was kinda difficult to bring the energy back after that. I remember the club getting extremely light once that announcement was made and her set was played.
Itâs funny how people are remembered though.
I remember WHILE SHE WAS LIVING, people would always talk about how much Aaliyah couldnât sing well LIVE. Now in her passing? Oh, Aaliyah had THE most âangelicâ voice anyone has ever heard.
I guess Big was right: âYouâre nobody, til somebody, kills youâ.
Even if the killing was accidental by a pilot who lied about how many hours he had actually flown, and had fraudulently gotten his Pilots license; & had alcohol and cocaine in his system, so says the autopsy.
R.I.P Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Iâm about to go watch Romeo Must Die.
Caught a picture of LeBron on vacation. (yeah, i'm a little late with this one, been busy) But this clown has the nerve to wear a t-shirt on his vacvation that reads "Check My Stats". For what? What does stats matter when there is no conclusion of a championship.
I thought LeBron was the ultimate TEAM player. Mr. Magic Johnson reincarnated. "Check MY Stats" doesn't seem too team oriented to me. Sounds like the kid that didn't win, but still wants his accomplishments acknowledged.
That's not how it works Kid James.
The goal at the begginnning of the season is NOT "who can get the best stats?" The question is not "canÂ I get MVP?" The question is: "Can we win the Championship?" And until you get OFF your high horse and your dang stats, and focus on winning a 'Ship, you'll NEVER get one.
Shaq or Not.
Reggie Miller hath claimed there is NOTHING wrong with his stomach tattoo. A simple question for my viewers:
I there anything wrong with a MAN having a tattoo around his navel?
Hilarious none the less. Reggie should be ashamed of himself. He might as well have a "Tramp Stamp" on his back!
Wow. That’s how you do? No handshake, no head nod, no “good luck in the Finals Olympic teammate”, no “represent the East well”? Nothing?! You just put on your headphones and leave the building? WTF?
You don’t think MJ had to face the media when he lost to Detroit in 6 in 89; what about in 7 the next year? Did Kobe speak to the media after losing to the Celtics in 6? You don’t think he was upset? You think he WANTED to be asked how he lost, why he lost, and blah, blah, blah? Had Kobe pulled that stunt he’d STILL be getting crucified.
And for you to use an excuse:
“It’s hard for me to congratulate someone after you just lose to them. I’m a winner. It’s not being a poor sport or anything like that. If somebody beats you up, you’re not going to congratulate them. That doesn’t make sense to me.”
That’s the most ridiculous foolishness I’ve ever heard.
CLEARLY you’re not a winner, but an Eastern Conference Finals loser; in 6. It most definitely IS being a poor sport. If you get beat up, in contest, AS a competitor you show respect when you’ve been beat up all over the basketball court. When boxers get knocked unconscious, they get the smelling salt, wake the hell up, and shake the man’s hand that put them to sleep. You should’ve shaken the hand that put you to sleep, or hugged his massive shoulders.
The reality of the situation is, you were embarrassed Baby Bron. Awww. We’ve all been there. I remember coming back from a school trip in 3rd grade; I pooped my pants and had to blame it on other people the whole way back to school. Pretty embarrassing; guess you kind of pooped your pants too huh? Difference is the whole world saw your stains.
The Magic were just better LeBron. Beat ya’ll 5 straight times in Orlando, and beat snot out of you and your “team” in 6 in the Eastern Conference Finals; to walk off the court without speaking is Bad Form Baby Bron.
We watched you throw chalk in the air before EVERY game, we watched you take faux pictures with your teammates when blowing out Detroit, Atlanta, and all other games en route to 66 wins. We watched the MVP Puppets, we watched you accept your MVP award, we watched you shoot half court shots in practice and games alike. We’ve had to stomach ALL the LeBron they’ve shoved down our throats – pause – now we get to throw it up.
Now go home and watch DISNEYWORLD vs. DISNEYLAND like the rest of the world.
Your brother in Christ,
