I said it once and I'll say it again. Word of mouth is king. No amount of commercials can beat the old fashion hearing it from somebody you know.  We sure keep trying though. Commercials can lead to somebody trying it and liking it and telling everybody. 

That's kinda how I heard about this game (and also bring this word of mouth), I was in a party on XBox. We were playing in the NBA 2k18 playground (Mypark) and one of the people in the party who I happen to be playing with started speaking gibberish. Saying something about "For night". He was downloading it and it was making him lag. Now if you play video games online, you know that's the thing you don't want to happen. 

So him and the other person in the party was talking about the game and now he gets high ranks and whatnot. I'm still confused. I haven't heard of the game and the way he was saying it sounded kinda stupid. "For Night". I thought they were saying about some mobile game cause I thought I heard something about playing it at school. 


Anyways. I asked what the game was and found out he was saying Fortnite.  Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.

The part that grabs me was the one that grabbed you. Free. That's the best way for me to give anything a try. Cause all I can lose is time if the game is bad. So that night I downloaded it. It's pretty small. Around 12 GBs. Downloading it was fast. 



I have been playing the game off and on for about a week and I have been loving it. It's crazy. I have been playing solo the whole week cause the people I started the download for, haven't been on. So I started this game lost. I mean I didn't know what to do. That didn't matter. My teammates around me without saying any words started sharing guns and whatever else was needed to stay alive. 

Teamwork is key in this game. The more the better. They added voice chat yesterday and this game has gone to the next level. 

What happens is that you swap into a world. After standing around for about 30 seconds. The "Battle Bus" takes you into the air and you have to pick a spot to land.  You jump out the bus and once you hit the ground. The war is on. It's you and your team battling other squads and the storm. What's this storm you ask? Play the game to find out. Like I said, try it, it's free. 


Little pro tip: Chop down trees and break down cars. You will need the supplies. You also can be heard smashing things so try to get it down. Guns can be found around the world and meds and bullets and even better guns too. So keep the eye out and do what you gotta do to win the match. 

I also didn't watch this vieo before playing. Maybe you should.

PINTRILL has joined forces with Louis Vuitton on a special edition pin set for the luxury brand’s upcoming “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” exhibition. The limited range touts three unique designs: a Yellow Truck in LV’s signature Imperial Saffron hue, the iconic Louis Vuitton graffiti tag by Stephen Sprouse, and an airplane inspired by the exhibition poster. “Our lifelong goal as a pin company is to be recognized in this space as the leader of pins, and having the opportunity to work with a brand like Louis Vuitton is an incredible step towards achieving that goal,” said PINTRILL.

“Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” will take place at the former American Stock Exchange building in New York City. Curated by acclaimed historian Olivier Saillard, the exhibit will be divided into ten sections that each spotlight a slice of Louis Vuitton’s rich history from 1854 to modern day.
The pins will be given exclusively to those who attend the exhibit starting October 27 up until January 7, 2018.

What makes the video hella funny is the people that work with the Warriors thought this too. I enjoyed this video too much.

You know how Nas said, "The real niggas are back on the radio"? Well, the real niggas are back on TV shows. If you thought that just hearing him say "You know why I'm here" was funny. You not even ready for this. 

 The unscripted reality show from Marshawn Lynch. "No Script" will consist of eight episodes, each one airing on Thursday via Facebook Watch and lasting between 10 to 15 minutes. According to Bleacher Report, Lynch will be put in random situations throughout the series, from "whipping figure eights in race cars" in the first episode to "whipping a military tank. 

This is the show that we all needed. This first episode sees Marshawn in a race care. Maybe I'm tripping but at one point he tried to ghost ride.In a race care. Race.Car. Lord. He put that little driver through hell. I love it. 

"We can buy more tires"

 The funniest part of the show finding it's way at the end when asked about playing tennis. Not just playing tennis. Playing against a great. 

Asked if he wants to play tennis against Serena Williams "even though she's super pregnant."

"That's an unfair advantage," Lynch says.

"That she's pregnant?" the writer asks.


"Nah, nigga. That it's Serena Williams!" Lynch responds.


You scientist stay safe and watch the jays.

Make sure to watch the first episode above and follow No Script on Facebook to catch the next.

It's about to go down.

This man I owe so many dinners too. Skip to my Lou, Hot Sauce, AO, Alimore and too many to name. My game is based off all the things I have seen in the streets. And1 mixtapes raised me. Which makes me mad that they're not really around anymore. That was the rawest form of basketball. We used to all run to the TV to see what new moves they would be doing on the tape. Take that to the next game we played and hope the ref didn't blow the whistle. 

Nothing rang out in the games like this move. The Shammgod. The most deadly crossover to be seen. You were the man if you did this. I still remember the first time I did it perfectly.  I came down the court and my man was all over me. I mean you would think we were dating. I could smell what he had for breakfast by how close he was. I crossed once. Still on me. I step back, still following. That's when I knew I had him. The tighter the defense. The easier to be exposed. 

I stepped back, he ran up on me. I tossed the ball out with my left(always work on the left hand, kids) like I was going baseline. He bit. I took my right hand like flash and snatched the ball back with my right. He reaches for a ball that's not there while stumbling. Boom. I take it between my left leg, he reached again. Falling and reaching. Too slow. He's on the ground. I'm at the basket and passing out for the three. Bang, Bang.

I'm not really into paying too much for anything. So my eyes are always on the sale. Didn't really jump on this one cause I already got the colors but wanted to toss this one to y'all. Villa is having this 20% off sale and you need to get in on it.  They have the adidas trio training pants for 45 dollars. Now I don't know if you own a pair but as somebody who owns several. Thier the most comfortable pants in the world. I put them above my H&M and I love my H&M. adidas would take the place but I just can't do it. 

Thier slim fit and just like joggers they hug the ankles. Leaving all the room for the flexing on your feet. I can't lie. It's getting harder and harder to ever go back to jeans. Head over to Villa and check out this sale. Don't miss out on your chance to stack. Oh, ladies, I got you too.



I started this post looking out for y'all and here I go. Shopping for myself. I didn't need the pants but that doesn't stop me from looking around. They have some pretty great stuff on sale. Picked up the all black EQT's. I know I said I would stop buying all the color blocking but I can't stop. 



 Now I already have the pants that are kinda like this. I say kinda cause the colors are a little different. I wouldn't be wearing it at the same time anyways. I don't want to disappear.  

Will be suer toning it down when wearing this one


Don't wear all this together tho. 

I guess this just became a Dress Like Javaris.

Sorry if you came across this post thinking you about to see a million Supreme things. Nope. Sorry. Not really a wearer of what they make but I still have you covered. Go Here. 
 Now to everybody that's still left over. This is something I need in my life. I love the sculpture from Scarface. Have always. Love the movie too. Loved it so much I even bought that game. I never beat the game but I got it none the less. It was kinda fun. Shit started skipping from being scratched up.  Maybe that was God way of telling me to stop being a drug kingpin in the game. I was like 15. I was moving that dope though.

Anyways. This is something I'm hoping to get. This the part where everybody that buys Supreme laughs at me thinking I can just buy it. Ugh. Here's to a low resell number. Be easy on me. I really want it. 

 Select pieces will be available at Supreme’s NYC, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and Paris locations, as well as its online store from October 12. Japan will see an October 14 release.

It's Saturday and it's the south. So you know what time it is. Like right now. As I write this.It's football time. I'm currently watching the Dawgs play and it's 45 to 7 against Vandy. I really don't think I need to tell you who has the 45. Cause I won't. You should know. 

Anyways. I'm shocked it took me this long to do a post like this. Better late then never, I guess. Never late is never. 

I been the biggest of fans since I hopped out my mommy. So I have this massive amount of UGA stuff. Too much. So we can get another one. If you want it. We really just need for another blow out for you to get it. 

This is the hoodie that I have on right now. It's cool in Georgia. Not too hot or cold, just cool. So this one works just fine. With the half zip. The air can come in. If I had enough taco meat, I would let it show.  Featuring the new bulldog (new ish) logo big and bold on the right with the Nike logo on the left. 

Only thing I would change about this one is I would love to have the small logo on the bottom. Switch with the traditional G.  Also love the high in the front low in the back that the jacket has. 

 I normally match this up with some camo shorts. Which always makes my mom crazy when I was younger and used to try stuff like this say "So you cold or hot". She didn't like that style. I didn't care. I was fresh. 


 Not really one to wear too many Jordan's but I will pick one up from time to time. Plus I never skittles bag so I couldn't wear any other brand but Jordan or Nike with this hoodie. I feel that the grey gives off the nicest of offsets to bring it all together. 

Just wearing a regular Sanquon Logo tee under all this. If you wanted to know. 

Hoodie: Georgia Team Store
Joggers: H&M
Sneakers: Jimmy Jazz

I don't know how this one slipped my mind. Must have been too busy thinking about the Kith drop. I need this one as well. Inspired by the function-first approach of the SFB, the SF AF-1 is a dramatic reinterpretation of the Air Force 1. It features a high-rise nylon collar, multi-purpose ankle straps, secret pockets and more, delivering options for utility and wear in any urban environment. The latest colorway arrives in black and navy for a sleek show of force.

Not that many sneakers to really look forward to in this month of candy and skulls. Which is probably for the best. Cause I can see all the ugly orange and black being made if they did. Not this Friday though, Kith is coming with it for us. Well, some of us. It's for the ones of us that believe that Pip was more than the sidekick of Jordan. He carried the team when 23 went off to be 45. They didn't win it all but still. Playoffs count for something. 

The Magic was hot that year. Penny and the boys should have won it all that year. Maybe that would have kept Shaq. Anyways. That has nothing to do with this. 


Ronnie Fieg is bringing the legend Pippen 1 to our feet. Premium executions to Pippen’s first official model, the Air Pippen 1, which feature an animal-theme due to Pippen’s freak abilities on the court as well as the menacing appearance of Aaron Cooper’s silhouette.


This model, entitled the Chimera, features a full pony hair upper comprised of various animal prints including Leopard, Zebra, Tiger, and Lion. The name is derived from a mythical beast that was multiple animals in one. Similarly, Pippen was multiple animals in one on the court, as he could play any position effectively. This upper sits atop a full white sole unit with a translucent air bag.

Includes the OG Pip logo as well as a Kith version, as well as leather lining and custom-printed insoles. Lastly, both are accompanied by special packaging.
KITH x Nike Air Pippen 1 Release Date

The KITH x Nike Air Pippen 1 Collection will release on October 6th at all Kith locations and online at Kith.com. The release will also be part of Kith’s new SoHo flagship store at 337 Lafayette St. Both Nike Air Pippen 1 releases will be a Kith exclusive and retail for $205.

The older I get, the more I need the hole in the walls. If it's not a hole. I don't wanna go. That wasn't the case when I was a kid. Actually, I take that back. I used to go to this one place when I was about 13. They had the best Jamaican beef patties.  Used to get that and some french fries and would be good to go. Oh, and cream soda. I just knew I was doing something. 

I found this taco place in Douglasville. Thanks to my friend Ashley. She put me on. It's inside of a Mexican supermarket. I thought she was lying when she suggested it. Cause I have walked by several times and it didn't look like they were selling tacos. La Montana Taqueria (5861 Fairburn Rd, Douglasville, GA 30134). Amazing steak tacos. The chicken is okay. Nothing special so take it or leave it.  



It is also here where the ladies that worked there put me on to this beautiful thing called "Sope". I have been in love ever since.

Okay, first off. When is Xbox/NBA 2K going to fix this problem? The sharing to Xbox live problem. You can't share anything from this game. At all. That's why I haven't posted anything. I was going to try to keep y'all in the know about my MyPlayer but all the clips are not anywhere to be found. Anyways. I found the way around this. Uploading the clips and screenshots to One Drive. 

Anyways this is not about that. This is about Sunday. The Ruffles 4-pointer challenge. I loved it. Seem like hella people had bad things to say but I loved it. The rules were pretty simple.  The game is to 21. With two kickers. They have a four-point line. This four-point line turns deadly after one of the teams score 12 points. You make a shot from the four-point line and you win the game no matter the score. You can be down and out and the other team can have match point. You hit that 4 points and the game over. (Insert evil laugh).




I was hype when I was giving it to other people. Man, I wasn't so hyped on the receiving end. Okay, I kinda found that funny too. I was just so shocked at how many 4's I hit. I started the day not even trying. While many of my teammates threw up million of houses made of 4's bricks. 

I think I hit about 8 on the day. I didn't care too much. I was enjoying that 4x VC. I came out with about 30K VC and I started with only three hours left. I finish rank 997. 

The last game was bad. They were hitting from deep all game. GG. 

Also, how did people get to play with friends? I spent the whole time getting matched with randoms. 

I can't wait for the next one. I think it's Monday on the 9th. Make sure you go out and get you some Ruffles chips. The ones with the speical marked bags. They have the code for the 4x VC. You don't wanna miss out.
