Like I always say, Sanquon is for the weekend. We haven't got to the point where you can wear whatever you want in the office you work at yet. So don't roll into the office with our "P.A.W.G" shirt on. Just show your love of big butts on the weekend. Unless you work in a tech company. Then you can show all that booty, daily. 

We make others shirts too. 

Anyways, this is one of them days. Where I have to leave my Sanquon at home and put on a button up. (Now just change clothes and go). Luckily it's not that fancy of an event. Just something with that football team from Atlanta

Our start with the shirt. The one above was the one that I was going to wear. I had it setup. I knew I was about to be killing with this one. It gives off like that corny dragon shirt that people wear. This is kinda like that without the dragon head. It's like the skin expanded. 

That was till I found this in my closet. The granddaddy of them all. 

 I ran across this one right here and tossed the other up back into the black misty that is my closet. I keep so much stuff I never wear. Cause 99.5% I'm only in Sanquon, duh. I just love this shirt. Makes me look like a new age pimp with no hoes. Cause I respect women enough to not sell their body to odd dudes in cars. 

Y'all better get better social skills and join Tinder or something.  

Had to break out the chains for this one. Like I said, I'm going for the pimp with no hoes look. This that Miami south beach. Get yo feet wet. 

If you would have told me when I was 16 that I would be wearing chinos in the future. I would have laughed. Taking out all the skinny jeans my mother thought I was gonna wear. Psst. Wasn't going to happen. Which is funny cause looking back, some was fire. I remember it was some Tommy Hilfiger dark blue with the softest feel ever. They just weren't the style I was into at the time.(Damn, how big was my pants). 

Yeah, black. 

Well, this is something you didn't expect to see from me. Jordans. Don't wear too many. I did that enough when I was 11. They just go so perfect with this look that I had to break them out. 

Shirts, Shorts, and bracelets are available at the link below. They're also having a sale.

I hate you Complex. I really do. Why did y'all have to do me like this? I have been doing nothing but lifting y'all up. I watch Everyday Struggle and Life At Complex. I often watch Hot Ones while eating Hot ones. So I can't understand the need to shoot me the middle finger. This ain't cool. How dare you Complex. The shame. Posting about the best place to get Hot dogs in all 50 states. UGH. Y'all got me out here wanting a hot dog bad. Really bad. Damn you. Y'all ain't playing fair.

I love that for Georgia it's The Varsity. Was no doubt in my mind. Nobody comes close.  Which is pretty funny. Cause before I even popped out my momma's belly I was eating at The Varsity. Adding to the greatness that is the Varsity hot dog. I have never had a steak (hamburger) there in my life.Like ever. I have been around a million times and it never crossed my mind till now.  Even now I have no interest. Just give me the #1 and F.O. (Frosted Varsity Orange) with the mix of ring one's (Onion rings) and strings (fries). 
 No heavy weight (Hot dog with extra chili) though. Not one for the mess but never catch me with the Yankee dog  (Plain dog with mustard). 

Thank you, Complex. You got me about to hop in the car right now. Y'all want something? 

Take a look at the Complex list and enjoy. Cause we all love a good hot dog. Just don't tell me where it comes from. I really don't care to know.  I see that some cities like to be fancy with this hot dog life. Like the representative for Arizona "El Güero Canelo". They out here slanging dogs in some of the best-looking bread I have laid my eyes on. So yeah, take a look at the list cause some are next level. I'm talking about that Idaho one. Ayo.


This Friday (Really Saturday) join me as I will be live-streaming My Park on 2K17. You can link up and run with me or you can just hang in the chat and watch. It's up to you. Will be some fun. Bring some snacks. 

It's been such a long time since we did this huh? Y'all have been asking and now I'm here to deliver. A Litte back story for everybody new to the blog. On Fridays, we used to link up on Xbox 360 and play zombies and 2k14. It was a lotta fun.    

We back and better than ever. One, cause I made a Twitch page. So now people that are not into games can also join in on the fun while watching. 

Like the old days. We switching the games up as y'all see fit. Team Play is back on Madden (OMG) so hopefully, we can get into that. 

Make sure to follow me on Twitch.

I don't know what this has to do with anything or why it's gonna be on tour. I'm here for it regardless. Gonna give you something nice to look at while Jay-z feed you that food for thought. You do the dishes. 

 I love this picture. I can't stop looking at it. This looks so beautiful. It reminds me of when I was talking about luxury rap when I listen to Watch The Throne. 

Inspired by Koons’ smaller, late-’90s Balloon Dog (Orange), which according to Architectural Digest sold for $58.4 million USD at Christie’s, making it the most expensive sale by a living artist ever, JAY-Z is sparing no expense to impress his fans who have bought a ticket to see him perform.

I really can't lay on my sofa anymore. I just seem to be falling asleep whenever. It can be the middle of the day and it can catch me. Anyways, the day has come that we all have been waiting for. The crew has linked up. The Defenders is here. 

Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil,  and a month after the events of the first season of Iron Fist,  the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand.

So far I have watched three episodes. I like the way it was done so far. They start with (Spoilers, duh). They start with Luke getting freed from jail with the help of Foggy. I thought that it was about to be lit. I just knew that Daredevil was waiting at the car or something. Nah, that wasn't the case. Anyways.   

 The show spends the first episode as if it was the first of the new season of each. So maybe we skipping the setup episode that comes with new seasons when the new seasons of each show come back.  Which would be amazing, helps get to the action faster.  

I'm loving what I have seen so far. It's shaping up to be what we all dreamed of. When that Run The Jewels start playing, that's when I lost it. That's all I will say. The only problem I have, it's only eight episodes.  

Streaming on Netflix. 

Let me know on Twitter/Instagram what you think about The Defenders.

This the type of sneaker that makes people stop and look. This thang funky. Featuring the more affordable Bounce cushioning over BOOST technology, the Harden B/E comes with a reasonable price tag of $140 USD. The collection includes a black and orange patterned web-like mesh with an asymmetrical lacing system over the faded orange Bounce sole that gives the shoe a fun and funky twist.

The info on when it's coming out is not out yet but I'm watching.

Something about Tuesday that just gets the juices going. Makes me feel alive and ready for whatever the day brings my way. Anybody that wants it can have it. Such the happiest of moods. 

It's probably because we record The Awkward Minority Podcast on Tuesdays.  As you can see above, we have merch. You should buy some. Rep for the Awkward Misfits. Like I am today. 

 These black tech joggers are more fitting than the picture leads on. They look so baggy, I hate baggy. Anyways, I don't match colors unless it's whipping out the black. Just something about it gives off that badass look. 
Sidenote: H&M has added a pretty nice amount of new bracelets to the collection. Guess they heard I needed some more. Also of note. I always wear my Nike fuel band on my left wrist. Always. 

Can you believe that the only sneaker that I don't have color blocking for is black? Well white too. Since I don't own any white sneakers. Have come close but Nah, still no white. All my black sneakers have some color. I have been trying to stop buying all one color sneakers lately but I might that to make this expectation.  Sneakers from Jimmy Jazz.

Well, that's what I'm wearing today/right now. Be sure to let me know on Twitter/Instagram what you got going.

If you're anything like me. This is how you look on Sunday morning. Laying across the sofa.  Just looking at the screen. Not locked into some show that you can't take your eyes off of. No, never that. Staring at the screen for the last couple minutes of that TV series you fell in love with as it goes off. Coming to its last seconds. Watching the credits that you never cared to do before. Stalling for time. Cause you know what happens next. The moment we all hate. The time of not knowing. Not knowing what to watch next. 

We have all been here before. It's some of the worst feelings in this world. Watching something amazing and wanting more when it's no more to give. Trying to find a replacement to this amazing journey you just took in the theatrical of theater. 

Let me help you bridge the gap between that show that just ended and the one you watching that's coming to an end.  

 The Founder (Netflix) 
The Founder is a 2016 American biographical drama film directed by John Lee Hancock and written by Robert Siegel. The film stars Michael Keaton as businessman Ray Kroc and portrays the story of his creation of the McDonald's fast food chain. Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch co-star as McDonald's founders Richard and Maurice McDonald.

I'll be the first to admit, I knew nothing about the story of the most famous hamburger in the world. I didn't have no reason to go looking for it. I just know the food at McDonald's is cheap and the Big Mac and McFlurry were my teenage diet.  I have to say, I didn't see any of this coming. This was the biggest plot twist ever. This will leave you feeling some type of way. 

 Glow (Netflix) 
Set in Los Angeles in 1985, Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress, auditions along with dozens of other women in a fledgling professional wrestling promotion called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). She is at odds with GLOW's director Sam Sylvia due to her tendency to overact. When Ruth's former best friend, retired soap opera actress Debbie Eagan, arrives at the ring, their confrontation promises to either make or break the show. 

I always love watching something that is based on the true events in history.  I used to be the hugest wrestling fan when I was a kid. This was before my time but I would have watched this with the quickness. That's actually one of the problems in WWE. They don't have enough women matches. 

 Ozark (Netflix)
 Bateman portrays financial planner Marty Byrde, and Laura Linney portrays a homemaker turned real estate agent Wendy Byrde. Marty suddenly relocates the family from a Chicago suburb to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks after a money laundering scheme goes wrong, and he must pay off a debt to a Mexican drug lord.

I love the way in which this is shot. It's some of the most beautiful grades of color.  Great mixture of blues and gray. You feel like you in the environment. The thickness of the air, the fresh smell of the lake. This show puts Bateman in the space we have never seen before. I thought he was just this funny dude. Nah, don't box with in. He kills this role. 

That's it for now. Let me know on Twitter/Instagram what you think and what show I should start watching.

Just messing around making some gifs. This will all make sense soon. Good morning.

This is one of the funniest rappers out right now. How can you not like this dude.

You know. Here's something that everybody should be doing if you not doing it already. If you love sneakers like I love sneakers. You need to be getting them on sale. That's the key. Whenever I have to pay for sneakers. I don't ever pay full price. You shouldn't either.  Find the sales. One of my favored places to look for the sale is Kicks Deal. They have them all. You can get sneakers as low as 34 dollars sometimes. They also let you know when adidas having warehouse sales. Since I can't share my friends and family code with y'all.  Every again (That was crazy). The warehouse sales are the next best thing. So what I'm saying is, follow them. Just looking out for y'all. What sneakers you getting this weekend?

We built this city. We built this city on rock. We build this city on Rock&Roll. I don't know why Starship popped in my head. (If you looking for something more hardcore, here's Dipset). 

Just seem like something that would be playing in the opening of this movie. Where we find Venus "Vee" Delmonico (Named after Venus de Milo) computer screen. My bad, her Mac screen. Anyways. She's nervous about the college she has been accepted to. Mainly because it's cross the country and her mom won't be into that. This is where I knew this movie was about to be good. Cheesy dilemmas always lead to the good stories. Anyways, her friend calls and this is where we find out about the game 'Nerve". An online reality game where people either enlist online as "players" or pay to watch as "watchers". Players accept dares from watchers, receiving monetary rewards.

 The players with the most people watching while they do a dare moves on to the next round. The dares can be simple like Vee's first, which was kissing a stranger for 5 seconds for 100 dollars. The more you move up, it gets wilder. Like, show your naked ass to the crowd at the pep rally.  The dares can get dangerous as-well since this is the internet in 2016 we talking about. Like where we find Machine Gun Kelly. Laying face down on a train as a full speed train runs over him while on the track.  Dare Completed. 

MGK steals the show. I never knew he was such a great actor. This movie has to be the first movie to take on the internet in the way that made you feel this is real. I wouldn't be shocked if this is something on the dark web cause given how many Instagram videos we all seen, I wouldn't put it pass. 

The movie takes you to the edge of wanting to know what happens next. While wondering what you would do if placed in that situation. Would you be a player or a watcher? 

Watch the trailer below and check it out the movie on iTunes.

Back when he was living in Atlanta, Cyhi the Prynce was partying with Jagged Edge in their home studio. While his hosts were away, however, one of the parties was interrupted by a S.W.A.T. team. And they found something. Cyhi found himself on the way to jail, but he had two secret weapons. One was his musical talent, and the other...
