Can you believe that Krystal on Campbelton Rd, SW Atlanta, GA is now closed and out of business. In Atlanta, Krystal on Campbelton rd was not just a fast food restaurant, but also a landmark in the community. I remember back in the 80’s and 90’s when Krystal’s was the hangout spot after you leave clubs like The Nite Lite, 559, 731, Sharon’s Showcase, just to name a few. Or a spot to hit after you leave Jelly Beans (The Skating Rink), or a good place to chill after a rival Mays-Douglass football game. This restaurant holds a lot of A-Town memories, I would say it’s “The Black folks Varsity”. Unfortunately, it appears that the property is a foreclosure and the price for the building has dropped down to $50,000. Where my Atlanta people at???? Check in and give your opinion or share your memory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No this is not a diss to those whom are in a gang, let alone the Bloods since the title of this article is ‘Piru this Piru that’. Yet it comes a time when certain words, slangs, or what have you take away from the content of an artist’s song or verse. Example, take a record that seems to have no profanity on it. Then all of a certain, the artist says ‘sh@%’. Now before you remember any other line from that song, ‘sh@%’ is what’s going to stand out. This leads me to Lil Wayne’s verse on ‘Strange Clouds’, which is a joint lifted from Atlanta, GA rapper B.O.B. (Grand Hustle) upcoming sophomore studio album. I was riding with Weezy for a minute, yet was thrown off when he stated yelling out ‘PIRU, GANGSTAS, OUTLAWZ’..
Am I dissing Weezy or the bloods? No. This is about music and the power that it has to keep, lose, or shift your listeners attention. There are plenty great artist that either throw up their set or claim what they are banging in their songs (Snoop Dogg, Daz, Kurupt, Game) to name a few. Yet with seasoned artist like Snoop, Daz & Kurupt (Tha Dogg Pound), they understand the elements of musical format. Therefore when they claim Tha Dogg Pound, 20 Crip, etc., it doesn’t throw off their audience or listeners. In actually, for a hot second, it makes you feel like you’re crippin. That’s the power that music has.
Rapping singers, singing rappers, acting rappers, rapping actors, now RAPPING BOXERS. Seems like rap is in just about every entertainment category now-a-days. Guess Nas can eat his words that ‘Hip Hop Is Dead’.
So did y’all hit that new Ray J joint called ‘The Baddest Girl’? I’m not even going to trash talk it because I don’t want Brandy’s brother to come running after me. Don’t know if I would get the gangsta Ray J or the Mr. Sensitively. Still trying to figure out which one ran up on Fabolous that night (Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz fight).
Let me stop tripping on Ray J. Yet in actuality, it’s not Ray J that I’m so much tripping on. But it’s Ortiz. But I’ll let you listeners be the judge.
That seems to be the question as on his song Don’t F With Me, T makes a reference to rappers working on their sophomore album.
“Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords/ Fame such a funny thing for sure, when n*ggas start believing all them encores/ I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour/ See yourself as I pull up in that mirror tint/ Skins vs. blouses, you mirror Prince, ‘Chappelle’s Show,’ all of you Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who is for real penning?” (“Don’t F*ck With Me”)
But Drizzy isn’t the only rapper working on their sophomore joint, and besides, those two never seem to have had any beef anyway despite the Lil Wayne (Young Money Entertainment) Jay Z (Roc Nation….Kanye West affiliated) fuel.
Despite the alleged disses, Pusha ends the track promising there are no direct shots at the song’s conclussion.
So…here’s a track that should incite some interesting discussions within the hip-hop community. Unless I’m reading wayyy too into it, there appear to be some shots fired at Drake on Pusha T’s new freestyle track, “Don’t Fuck Wit Me,” which uses the instrumental from Drizzy’s “Dreams Money Can Buy.” Now, I realize that Pusha proceeds to say “no shots” at the end of the track, but he also laughs maniacally and says “but nothing goes unseen.” (Prefix Mag)
In a poorly played game by both teams, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys managed to kick their way to victory last night winning 18-16. The Cowboys offense played like they were high on prescription drugs (or cocaine) on Monday night. The receivers didn’t know which plays to run on several occasions and the center was having communication issues with the quarterback. Romo, one of the most overrated quarterbacks in the NFL, played like a seasoned vet. He was coaching, making plays, and doing whatever it took for his team to be victorious.
The Redskins could have won the game if they would have played hard four quarters. It seems to me that the offense just couldn’t get things together in the 4th quarter. They stranded the running game and decided to let Grossman air it out for some strange reason. Grossman just didn’t get the job done last night. The defense gave up too many big plays also. The Cowboys are now 2-1 and tied with the Redskins who are also 2-1
