Today we kick off March with some lions. As a fan and practioner of a good rant, I bring you nothing but the best.
Richard Pryor floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee. In todays world of pussyfootin’ entertainers Mr. Pryor would need to look into rehab for being so frank. I’m glad this interview was caught on tape…his behind the scenes commentary is just as brilliant as his stand-up.
the legendary Bill “M.F.’n” Bonds , this…is real Detroit flavor,right here. Bill was thee premiere television newscaster in Detroit when I was growing up. The only person who had more flavor in the public eye was then Mayor Coleman A. Young (who’s colorful language was also often a part of the evening news). No one believes this story (still), but I saw Bill Bonds in the Northland Mall one day drunk as fuck, minus his wig…normally I’d imagine one would point and laugh at a “celebrity” in that state, Bill M.F.’n Bonds was still cool as a M.F.’n fan.
This joint right here is ill, right? Fatlip be buggin’, yo. Fatlip was a member (the best member,mind you) of 90’s west coast hip-hopper’s The Pharcyde. The Pharcyde’s first album was pure genius. Picking up somewhere very close to where De La Soul‘s “3ft. High & Rising” left off. I still don’t like the Pharcyde’s 2nd album…but they booted Fatlip from the group soon after the albums release (apparently he was getting a bit wild i.e., young black man + fame+new money+ cocaine+flies buzzin’ in yr ear = A very confused brother). Well, the Pharcyde have been wack ever since…and Fatlip? I think Fatlip has an amazing amount of potential. I’d like to see his homey Spike Jonze direct him and Dave Chappelle in something written by Chappelle & Fatlip. That schitt would be dope.
