Old Skool Friday Al B Sure....Night and Day

I know its been a minute since E did this, but he's told me if I can come correct bring it back..So In honor of the tape my big sis made pop twice, I give you Al B. Sure Night and day.. Yall dont even understand my pure hatred for all things Al B., Johnny Gill, Christopher "Pretty' Mu' puckah!" Williams and the like..

My sister would have a boyfriend over, and blare this on the stereo as they attempted to do homework. When she took me and my cousin anywhere, this cat was popped in the tapedeck..Personally, I always thought homie was on the fem side..Im jus sayin...Blue Jean Jacket wearin, wapp doin ....sorry bout that, Pretty boys tap dance on my nerves..Yella cats like him use to own the late 80's and early 90's...See I equate him with the thug topc from earlier..I consider it a choice...Thugs wasnt in style during the 80's and 90s...You wasnt catching the baddest chick on the block with a homie with a Jherry curl, and Duky-Roll. Atleast not in OKC..
Up here, these Pretty Nickas ran it...

Nuff bout my rant, for my big sis...Here-ya-man..

Dream Team vs. Redeem Team..Why I Might Surprise You

With the Redeem thuggin each and every team they run up on, Im somewhat reminded of the summer of 92 when the Original fellas went over to Barcelona and showed naked @$$ at a tune to 43.3 ppg BEATDOWNS..As I watch the Kobe, Bron Bron, Bosh, and Paul, I ponder, How does this team stack up against the ATG'S of 92...Its being debated everywhere so I THOUGHT i'd chime in with my take..


I am a Basketball Junkie. I will not speak it without thorough research. I have no favorites, and I will only call em like I see em....

End Disclaimer..

Ok so I decided to do mental matchups and possible scenario's . In the matchups I wanna make one thing clear..I TOOK THE TEAMS AS THEY WERE CONSTRUCTED..The players selected at the times they were selected..Not when in there primes...With that said, its assumed you see a starting 5 from 1992 like this

PG Magic Vs. PG Kidd adv.. Kidd

Heres why

Magic had to unretire to come and play for the dream team. Jason Kidd is 33. I give a slight passing edge to Magic but Speed, agility, and defense are all advantages Jason would cream Magic on.

SG His Airness Vs. Kobe adv..His Airness

Heres Why.

At the time of the Dream Team MJ was at the Apex of his prime. You wasnt touchin MJ. I dont care who you were and are today. Fresh off a Championship he dominated on every side of the court. From lockin his guy down, to droppin 40 MJ crushed. Kobe wouldnt know what to do. Cant beat MJ with offense, he was far to good a defender at that time..Cant try to lock him down..Jordan Rules..

SF Scottie Pip vs. Carmelo Anthony. Scottie

Here's why.

Everything I said about MJ Scottie did at a robinesque level. Scottie could lock you down and score from all over the place. Carmelo would get shutout. Scottie would be streakin down the lane while snowbird tried to steal easy buckets...

PF Sir Charles vs. Bron Bron..adv Bron Bron

I had to wrestle with this one. First you have a True Power Forward going up against a guy who could easily play the PF. One was coming down from his prime, and one has yet to reach his. One has an all around game, and one was dominant in the paint. I have to go with Bron Bron..

Here's Why.

Charles would have to work to stay with Bron, but Bron would have to work in the paint. They somewhat cancel out. In the end though, Bron has that certain ability to catch fire and go. Highly Streaky...If Bron is own, Sir Charles starts to get dirty..

Center Admiral/Ewing vs Howard. adv Howard

The Admiral has shown me on more then one occasion that when matched up against a Shaq type he gets overmatched. Ewing gor physical, but an up down game would kill him.. Howard for all intensive purposes brings a physical game, can run like a sprinter, and can jump out the gym.

He creams these powder puffs in the paint on rebs. And in a game with the players mentioned above, rebs are gonna be at a premium..


adv Dream Team.

You can zone all you want, but the Dream team had a bench chock filled with shooters. Larry Legend, Chris Mullen, Clyde the Glyde, and the Mailman all had range 17 ft extending. At its best Micheal Redd is the only living player on the current roster who can bust up a zone. As for the Redeem team, there strength is there speed. With a bench that has the likes of CP3, Darren Williams, D-Wade and Bosh, expect a heavy dose of up and down..

So tallying all of the above, Id say that in a very close battle given all the parameters Id have t go with the Dream Team in a very close game 106 to 98.

The Dream team isnt gonna run with this squad, but what they will do is play a sound controlled game focused on busting up the zone and straking on the misses. Kobe gives up 30 to MJ and I expect a huge game from Chris Bosh. The dream team has no answer for a 6-10 bigman who can shoot and defend in the post. The difference in the game, SHOOTING. Legend, Mullen, and MJ eat this team alive in the corners. The moment they figure out they gotta defend the 3 MJ, Sir Charles, and the Mailman start back to the basket beat-ins.

The only hope the redeem team woud have is controlling the tempo..If they could manage a game like the Warriors Play, it would get ugty quick for the golden yrs gang...

I'll get to know you alot better...After...S@x.......

KJ said he enjoyed bloggin so much he wanted to do it again..(Given my schedule, I more then welcomed it) So Without Further adieu..I give you KJ week here at RP.....


Ok so I wanna get ANOTHER HUGE gripe I got about dating right off my chest right now...So im with you, we fealing each other, we leave the spot, and get to yo place.. Everything is going great..Until, you get that GIRL-DONT-LET-HIM-GET-IT-ON-THE-FIRST-NIGHT-THOUGHT. You try to struggle through it as were making out, but you are slowly giving in to your temptaions.. We make it to your room continue ouor kiss/grope fest on the bed. That little voice in your head TURNS INTO A LOUD SCREAM, and the next thing you know, homie at crib watchin Frazier and eating Taco Bell, while surfin porn during the commercails..Hard as Chinese Algerbra, yet frustrated like a fat kid with his hand an empty cookie jar...Nothing Happened..

You call me, and say " I know we went far, but im a "Good Girl" and I dont want you thinking of me like that"..Oh, cuz the latter, you know, thinking of you as an adult who has needs and would like those needs met is to much of a disrespectful mindset to be in..

(Not like im thinking to much at this point anyway)

Look, I know it may not sound this way, but Im callin you back. Alot of young cats consider it a victory if they get you back home and bone, and then conviently loose your personal details, but some of us are more then comfortable seeing where it can go after the sex. I get it, the risk reward in such a scenario benefits the man more then the woman...

But, and im going somewhere with this, maybe a little casual "activity" mixed in can be a good thing...

A couple of the Pros..

1 Its out the way. Why delay the moment, and set yourself up for a possible letdown..If its not that great, it can be worked on, better yet, you can ask that brotha to leave, never call him back, and come up with whatever excuse that fits you..He'll never know.. If its good, then you know right off the bat theres footing...

2. Now that the sex is on the table, the only other intimate detail is the closet, and what skeletons remain there. Self explanatory, but there are some who want to know the following questions..

1. Married

2. Divorced

3. Kids.

If you can get theno trinity (which you wont by atleast 60%) then you know this brother aint attached. Good sex with a brother with no skeletons...Lookie there he got a shot....

The con, you get the YES you dont want..Now ima go ahead and put it out there. Not all of yall, but some of yall are comfortable with a yes up there..Some are cool with 2 yes'es (Yall know who yall are to! ) You get the sex, you get a yes, and worst case scenario, you just created a "buddy"

3. That "itch" is scratched..Thus the basis of my arguement. Who doesnt have an occasional taste for chocolate cake..Who among us doesnt crave every know and again. ITS NORMAL...

Why it gotta be nasty? Are we honestly in highschool again? Sex is just that. Sex... A mutual agreemant of the swapping of personal fluid followed by the potential ejaculation of one if not both of the participants resulting in a calm relaxing state..

THATS MY DEFINITION...I have a great idea of the rebuttal...Here goes...All of the above with emotions attached right??? Well, Im puttin it out there, KJ isnt asking for it on the first night, but if it happens, he wont stop it. Furthermore, if it does happen, and its good, im callin you back..If its bad )(you betta make a helluva

Its out there....

Shawty want a Thug...

One of my homies from my Navy Days back in Hi. Asked if he could guest blog and wanted to get a feel on a topic that has bothred him...So without further adieu, I
give you KJ....

So im at the spot last night making it do what it do. And I get to the bar and low and behold I run into my future baby-momz...Lil Ma is 5'6 caramel complexion, about 135 with Megan Good Lips and a Trina ......Well I think yall know where i'm going...(Fellas I cant make it up it wiggled when she walked with it! ) Anyway I approach her and introduce myself and ask her for her name..We'll just call her Kiesha to protect the innocent..(im in Baltimore every other girl here is named Kiesha)
I buy her a drink, she gets a little more comfy and begins to tell me about herself. She's a Computer Security Officer and she enjoys Watchin football,basketball and going to the movies.
Fellas, perfect right? Thats what I thought to.

So I decide Im gonna take the convo up a notch. I ask her what she looks for in a man. She says " I wanna thug..Nothing against a hard workin brotha doing his thang, but I need a nicka " I had to make sure I heard her correctly as she was sipping the 11 dollar shot of Patron I had just purchased her . Obviously a look at me would lead her to believe im no thug. Faaaar from it.
I contract for the federal Gov. to catch thugs..I had to ask "Why would you a succesful sista be intersted in someone who is out on the blocks" ..

Stars in her eyes ,she goes into great detail about being with a guy who lives for the moment, Who's always on the grind, and constantly focused. Fellas as t-h-yck as she was the weaker man in me wanted to hit the whip and come back in that bar with a wifebeater on sporting 3 cell phones and cornrows..But the stronger part of me had to walk away..I thanked her for her convo and left.

She had me heated.. I could tell she wasnt feeling me, thats fine, I wasnt tryin to walk her down the aisle, (maybe down the block to the Mo) but to look at her Idve never guessed she was into thugs.. Especially at the spot we was in. Collar shirt and Nice shoes are a must there. Not to many thugs I know are going to put the effort in to throw a shirt on thats not a White Tee or a wife-beater...

So hears my age old question to E's readers. Why do the Ladies need a thug? I mean I got nothing but love for Lil Wayne and Jeezy. But you mean to tell me that if pitted against a good lookin tall brotha who got his own everything, he wouldnt even come close? (Ive made Wayne's Cd Pop twice but I'd like to think standing next to him I gotta shot with a shawty)

If TI and Pooch Hall are next to each other TI wins? (Through in pooch cuz thats who E says his wifey will leave him There are many good brotha's out there, I should know, Im one of the single ones, but getting shot down in spot like B-more where im literally outnumbered here 3 to 1 makes me wander what the hell am I doing wrong. Im not picky, and I love my sisthahs...Only Sistahs......I just want ot know what a thug can give that the Avg Joe Cant...
