U-n-i verse the world (zillionaires)"Take my heart of treasure. It's the biggest heart to measure. You'll find my lock and key, an open box of dreams...of you, you're my September. You just gotta try...to see your smile has value. It's worth so much to me. I'll give you my pennies...to freeze until December. And if I told you over...over I make you smile. And richer than all the money our two worlds could ever offer. We'd be richer than a millionaire, a zillionaire..."
I wish your birthday was a holiday, and your smile was trademarked. I live (yes live) to cook, do the dishes, rub your feet after a long day and run your bath water...everyday. That's ev-er-y day. What's a trip to the south of France when I could take you dancing on the sun? What's a home in the Hamptons when our home address is Paradise? Some may ask, why does she deserve so much? Well, it's because she stuck by my side when I didn't have twenty dollars to my name. She believed in me when I barely believed in myself. When her so-called homegirls flaunted their jewelry and purses in her face, her faith in my future never wavered. That's why I won't rest until she owns the outer rings of Saturn. Quite a few naysayers told me that she didn't exist before I began my odyssey, that I'd be searching in vain. But she was divinely promised to me, and my God has never lied to me. Odysseys are never brief in length, but the outcome is blessed when you believe. I believed. She believed. Now we're zillionaires. I'm kidding. We're richer. But stop looking for the money trail. It's a different kind of rich. Go 'head and marinate on that. Big ups to Nao for the inspiration. She's fly. Gilda too. She's the future wife. I made my mind up earlier today. Until next time..115.
RIP Jose Fernandez

Please welcome baby Asher Christopher Eaddy to the world. He made debut this past Saturday, September 17, a week to the day after his Unc Monday's born day. It's a Virgo thing. Congrats to the UnB, Eaddy, and Leavy families.
Life is good.
The past few weeks, I've been in my feelings over disloyalty regarding money with someone I considered family. I won't get into particulars, just know I got the short end of the stick. I have a well documented bad attitude when it comes to any perceived slight or disrespect; don't ever try and play me, simple and plain. Never could it ever be a MF in the streets. I'd only give that much of a chance to someone I love. But like Henry explained in Goodfellas, it's never strangers that they send for you. It's people you know, people you see all the time. The devil is the same way. He'll send the ones you call sister to do you greasy. But damn it, I had an epiphany the past weekend a few hours after I learned young Asher made his Major League debut. I'm just gon go harder. Expect the long delayed 100 Blocks Stories 2 this holiday season. And it's another classic. My book of poetry is basically done. My manager and I are putting the finishing touches on it right now. Look for that Valentines season '17. Yeah "sis," you hurt me. But after the smoke cleared, it only made me come back stronger.
If you don't have at least six pieces of Crew UnB apparel in your repertoire, handle that. We got what you want, got what you need. Peruse the sight. Check us out on IG @ theunbearablecrew to see how we look live from the hood, whether sun or earth. That's man, woman or child for for the knowledge of self impaired. 115.
"You come in every Wednesday, on your lunch break I think. And you always order the special...with the hot chocolate. My manager be tripping and stuff, talking 'bout we gotta use water. But I always use some milk and cream for you, cuz, I think you kinda sweet..."
I loved a time or two. Once, it cost me dearly. But for chance at true love, I'd gladly risk it all. Not that fleeting or strange love, though. I'm talking about that everlasting love. That Martin & Gina (not Martin & Tisha), that Erik & Aaliyah (100 Blocks Stories), that Desi & Lucy, that Ossie & Rubie Dee, that Bonnie & Clyde, that Rocky & Adrienne, that Barry [White] & Glodene, that Barak & Michelle, that Jay & Bey, that Eaddy & Janay, that nana and pop kinda love. I'm down for you, so ride with me...
If you owe that man, pay that man. Save the excuses. He didn't give you any excuses, he gave you production. He can't live off of excuses and empty promises. They aren't acceptable forms of currency in the grocery store. If you can't pay the man when you agree to, don't solicit the job. Things can get real messy. I'm talking about lawyers, subpoenas & things of a legal nature, feel me?
My born day is Saturday. Anything containing high quantities of THC, delicious cooked food, heterosexual sexual favors, laughs & camaraderie are acceptable.
Unless you've been in a coma the past couple weeks or so, it's quite impossible to not have become familiar with the Colin Kaepernick situation. Kaepernick, QB for the San Francisco 49ers, first chose to sit but now takes a knee during the national anthem in protest of police brutality against Blacks throughout the country. Born to a white mother and Black father, Kaep was adopted and raised by white parents, but he never lost touch with his blackness. His protest does not extend to the Armed Forces. Of course, Kaep's stance has drawn an enormous deal criticism from many, some even coming from the African American community. Logically, the criticism rests in the sentiment that his stance is the epitome of being Anti-American. Several NFL executives (in anonymity of course) have stated that they'd never sign him, if given the opportunity. In fact, Kaep stands a chance of being cut before the 53 man roster is established within the next week or so as Week 1 approaches. Theoretically, he could be blackballed, as teams may be hesitant to risk the bad public relations and backlash in signing Kaep. But, as usual when it comes to matters of race and inequality, the point of it all is being missed completely. You have to be some sort of blind/ignorant/delusional/bigoted asshole to fix your mouth to say that there isn't a near catastrophic problem in this country when it comes to matters of police brutality in Black America. NYPD says that a chokehold maneuver is illegal to subdue perps, yet it was used in the death of Eric Garner. He was unarmed. A 911 call in Cleveland went in on a young boy, concerned about his actions on a nearby playground. He reportedly had a gun, a toy gun. Tamir Rice was twelve years old. He was shot and killed mere seconds after the police arrived. His gun was clearly a toy, equipped with the standard orange tip. Would a white child ever suffer this type fate in this country? You don't have to answer. It's rhetorical. The typical diversion used by the deaf, dumb & blind is the argument that black on black crime is ignored in Black America, that it's the bigger issue. Every race is more apt to kill a member of the same race by far, simple and plain. We know we have a huge problem within many of our communities. No one gets a pass on killing someone. But what separates police from the rest is the fact that they're hired to protect and serve us all, not just the affluent and white.
At the end of the day, form your own conclusion. But don't ignore the bigger issue. Discussion is healthy. Talk about it with diverse people. You may learn something. You may even put them up on game.
