#MNR: IT WON’T BE SOON BEFORE LONG
“Loving the game you gave me. Loving my name is AZ. Never sold millions, but fuck it, I’m here to save the babies.”
“My words are diamonds, dug out a mine. Spit em, polish. Look how they shine. Glitter, glisten, gloss, floss. I catch a beat running like Randy Moss.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. I’ve been gone for a week or three. What y’all want me to say...I’m sorry? Never. Ain’t shit sorry about me. As a child, I didn’t play the board game because I refused to tell a MF I’m sorry. I do apologize, though, to my ardent readers. It’s a blessing to know that I have faithful supporters. That means everything. I know my shit is pure. I know that my pen will stand tall against any pen you put it up against. I’ve never doubted my work. I also realize that obscurity gives no indicator of its departure. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s (one of my favorite authors) Twice-Told Tales sat for years before they were recognized and given a “push,” hence the title. I’d like to receive my flowers and millions before I’m on a tee shirt, but I’m cool with taking the slow road to glory. I’m built for this shit.
Big ups to my Crew UnB CEO Christian E., who also happens to be my creative partner. 2NN is an army nigga, a navy nigga. CEO has been saying for a while now that he’d love to see the legendary Killer Mike and yours truly in some type of academic debate, 1v1 in a small room. The thing is, though, that he and I more than likely have very similar views on politics and hip-hop – from what I’ve seen and heard from him over the years. That would make a debate asinine, as there would be little to no discourse. But...as a registered asshole, I’m more than willing to take a counterpoint and argue it for the sake of argument. My extensive background in journalism has always allowed me to play devil’s advocate. I have an innate ability to exclude personal sentiment and concentrate on the argument. Having said that, I’ll take that Killer Mike smoke because he’s an intelligent and informed brother. Shit, truth be told, I’m sure he’d come for my helmet. I’m talking high caliber, close range shots. But I live for it. I’ll come out of it having debated one of the persons CEO and I look to with respect and admiration for being true to himself and our people. But umm, yeah. We ain’t got the hundred bands, Mike. Not right now, at least. But we’ll be there in time. It won’t be soon before long...
Big ups to Killer Mike for taking the time out of his day to interact with CEO on Twitter. He said he’d check out some of the old blogs. Sounds good to me. Bless up, my brother. Keep on doing what you do. The Unbearables Crew supports your efforts. P.S. -- that track you have on Madden ’23 is colder than Freddie Jackson sipping a milkshake in a snowstorm. Tell our brother Antwan Patton he’s the most underrated MC in history.
I MEANT WHAT I SAID ABOUT BIG BOI. ARGUE WITH YOUR DAD’S SLIDE-OFF IF YOU DISAGREE.
So... I’m watching YouTube on my television (I made the distinction because the ad format can be a bit different between phone and television) last night...and I saw a political ad for Charles Schumer (senior senator from NY). The ad was about a young lady in the state of New York who’d had an abortion in her late teens. She wasn’t ready to have a child and the procedure allowed her to continue with life unimpeded, receiving higher education in the process. She’s now happily married with a child and a career. There is no pretense or cynicism in my words; I’m happy that she is in a good place in life. And no, this isn’t pro or anti-abortion commentary. This is a WHY IN THE FUCK IS SCHUMER RUNNING ABORTION ADS WHEN THE ECONOMY IS DOING THE HARLEM SHAKE WITH OUR WALLETS AND PURSES IN ITS POCKETS? Bruh...I know exactly why he and other Dems are running on this platform. The Roe reversal was a watershed moment in American history. 50 years of precedent went out the window with one narrow, evangelical radical Christian Supreme Court majority view. Like I said, I’m not here to argue what was long considered established case law. I’m here to tell Chucky and other Dems that you need to run ads telling your constituents how you plan to combat inflation before you speak on abortion. Your blind liberal faithful aren’t going anywhere. You need to be convincing registered Independents like myself of your strategy for the economy. That’s the number one topic. I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a centrist/left leaning independent. Shit, I was a long-time Dem before I grew tired of Dem politicians assuming that my vote is guaranteed, simply because I’m Black. It isn’t. I’m not a subscriber to Old Time Ni**er Shit ideology. It appears to me that the majority of registered independents are right leaning. I derived this from looking at voting percentages. They’re the ones you need to convince. Yes, the right to choose is a HOT topic, but our wallets “trump” the topic of abortion. Again, debate your father’s side bitch. I’m not here to debate. ALL the polls say this. I’m not saying to eliminate the abortion ads. I’m saying that there needs to be ads telling fringe voters how you plan to combat inflation. But hey, what do I know? I’m just a Black man with an extensive political science background who reads from seven different traditional news outlets daily, watches two YouTube news outlets daily, and has a world of common sense.
I’ve held off on the tRump stolen documents @ Mar-a-Lago topic for diverse reasons, chiefly because I’ve been in the game long enough to know that there’s always more to the story. I shook my head like Stevie Wonder with his hair beads in ’74 when I saw dumbass Marco Rubio and others jumping out the window to defend their god when this initially went down in August. I’m thinking to myself that this is the ultimate level of meat glazing, like finally reaching Wart at the end of Super Mario Bros. 2 without warping. Teanna Trump ain’t got shit on the way R politicians eat old 45’s dick (pun intended). Sure, we know they’re top-tier sycophants. Blindly defending that man when you don’t even know what the DOJ has in its cache shows us that there is NOTHING Donald Queso can do to make his political loyalists jump ship. And today, we’ve learned that the DOJ has at least one witness AND video evidence that boxes of classified documents were moved AFTER the DOJ subpoena. I get it, you MFs decided that you’re willing to go down with the ship. It’s too late to jump now.
MY PREDICTION: THIS WILL NOT END WELL FOR CHEESY OR HIS FAITHFUL. FINALLY.
In the long game, it doesn’t really matter. The next conservative president will pardon him when possible. But justice will be served...eventually. Ojala que.
I was born a Yankees fan. I am a Yankees fan. I will die a Yankees fan. My Uncle Alan and I are old-school Bleacher Creatures – the REAL bleachers of old Yankee Stadium. I’m happy AF for Aaron Judge, even if he decides to return home to the Bay this winter and sign with the Giants. That’s not the discussion. All Rise became the American League single season homerun champion this season, blasting 62 round trippers in a 162-game season, one more than the previous record of 61 by fellow Yankee Roger Maris in 1961 (162-game season). Is he the AL king? Absolutely. Is he the all-time season record holder? Fuck no. That distinction belongs to Barry Lamar Bonds, who clubbed 73 four base knocks for the San Francisco Giants in 2001. “But Bonds was on steroids?” Shut the fuck up. FACT: Barry Bonds NEVER failed a MLB drug test. “But the Mitchell Report...” Again, close your damn pie hole. Without absolute proof...you finish the thought. Do I think Barry was juicing? Uh – I’m pretty certain he was. I’m absolutely certain he was the best (or second best) player in the sport BEFORE his physical transformation (if he wasn’t the best my guy Ken Griffey Jr. was). I’m also certain that baseball has been a cheater’s game since its creation. If you disagree, here’s a short list: spitballs/doctored balls, amphetamines (“greenies”), corked bats, ballpark spy cams, lip readers and even trash cans (fuck you Houston). I played the game long enough to know that extra muscle won’t improve your chance to put a round bat in contact with a round ball traveling 100 mph. Again, go find your daddy’s concubine and debate with her dirty ass. Barry is the king. Put him and Rocket Man in the Hall of Fame. Raffy Palmeiro too.
Our UnB website does not currently allow direct apparel purchases. Email the CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org for merch orders. He’ll get your order to you faster than Amazon Prime will. I could be lying, but damn it, your merch will get to you quick, fast and in a hurry. You can still peruse the site. Go on ‘head and cop you sum’n so the next time you go out to frolic you’ll be funky fresh, dressed to impress, ready to party. Cop sum’n for your auntie and two play cousins too.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABY. I LOVE YOU.
That’s all for this week. I’m tide (tired). I’m a catch y’all on the come up. Time to shake a leg and get up in the wind, sugar. One love.
