It is over. After 13 Playoff Appearances, 10 Division titles, 6 Pennants, 6 World Series appearances, and 4 World Championships the Yankee Dynasty is over. Not many teams in any sport can say the same that they have had a run like the Yankees. There is no logo more famous worldwide than the Yankee NY. It is synonmous with class, dignity, professionalism, and winning. It was every kids dream to play with the Yankees because they were the class of the Major League baseball. By missing the postseason this year the Yankees lose out on over $141 million dollars in revenue.

Despite all this, Young carries on, facing each challenge with the same qualities he displays on the court — grace, perseverance and an indomitable spirit.



Damn he knocked him the Fuck Out.

Everybody knows I work with kids. I get to see and work with some of the most difficult and funny ass kids in the world. Sometimes they make me believe that there is hope for black America and there are the instances when they make me afraid for the future. The conversations that they have with each other and the staff are hilarious and would make you shake your head and cry with laughter. The most popular conversation topic is sex and how much ass they get. Sometimes I laugh at the things they say and sometimes I comment and shoot down their pipe dreams of pornography stardom. This one particular day some of the kids were talking and I decided that I was going to jump in and fuck with them today and school them at the same time. This particular day this 19 year old was talking about how he gets so much ass and how he is doing his thing. After I let him run his mouth for a minute I wanted him to get hype and build himself up before I kick his legs out from under him with my words. After he finished talking about how “he be doing my girl” I decided to ask him if he was the master. By the look on his face I could see that he didn’t have any idea what the heck I was talking about. I asked him how can you claim to be a super lover when you don’t know who the master is. He started to stutter so I began to break down my theory on the master. I said the greatest love of all begins with you. In order for you to love somebody else you have to be able to love yourself. While I’m saying this I can see shortie has no idea what I’m talking about so I break it down for him, the Master is you. In order to make love to a woman you must first be able to love your self and that is through masturbation. Masturbation is just the mastering of the God within. After I said it I see his face frown I knew once I mentioned masturbation he would get all stink so I broke down the word masturbation and what it truly meant.
When you masturbate you are channeling the forces of the god that lives within you to allow you to reach a higher level of being. I know I can see the look on your face young god how can you be trying to achieve salvation through jerking off. It is the release of the forces of life within your instrument that you reach that plateau in which you can visualize life on a higher plane. As I am dropping science on the kid I see that I have his full attention. I know you haven’t heard anybody refer to your joint as an instrument before but it is. Read your bible you will hear reference’s to it as the serpent, rod, and the staff. These are all instruments. It is the power of the melanin that flows within your bloodstream that allows it to become the key of life. Why you think so many of you shorties are always grabbing your joint when you are talking to someone or when you wake up in the morning the first thing you do is grab your joint. It’s so that you can channel that power within your instrument and speak to god and ask him for the knowledge to go forth in your life’s journey. As I finished my statement I could see that I was dropping too much knowledge for the kid so I started to slow it down and bring it to him at his level. I know that I’m giving you too much information and too fast. Just take a moment to digest it. I told you that masturbation is the mastering of yourself and your sexual energy to converse with the god that lives within you. Melanin and/or DNA is the key to life. It is through this chemical compound that you can alter the universe. The soul that resonates in your instrument when utilized properly brings you to a higher level of consciousness, which is called the minds eye. When on the physical plane which we live in the energy often time’s becomes lust, greed, and the need for power. That’s why so often men are accused of thinking with their little head instead of their big one. It is through the channeling of your sexual energy through your brain that you are able to open your mind’s eye which allows you to become in essence a god.
I know you have heard the expression mind, body, and soul what did you think it actually meant shortie. As I drop this jewel on him I can see that the information is coming too fast and too hard so I ask him does he understand what I’m saying to him and he sheepishly nods his head. Now this doesn’t mean that you go in your room tonight and beat off talking about you are trying to talk to god I tell him. He laughs out loud at my comment and states that nah that’s not going to happen. Don’t be in your room tonight channeling your energies and get caught and blame it on me talking about Mr. A told me that this is how you pray to god. Remember that you channel impulsivity that way. It is through your mind’s eye that you talk with god. So to further mess with him I toss him a couple of extra towels and say that’s just in case you want to use the force young Jed

I believe everybody has an opinion so although I may not agree with what you are saying but I respect your right to express yourself. Watching this clip of Nelly(via and I totally disagree with him and wish he would have kept his mouth shut. I may not agree with the manner Ice T said what he said about Souljah Boy I can respect his right to express his viewpoint. Nelly is just adding fuel to a fire that is already growing out of control. Souljah Boy is making music for his audience I can't even begin to understand what he is talking about nor do I attempt to. My only issue with Souljah Boy would be if he started to tell people to sell drugs or rob people. I believe that when you place yourself in a position of celebrity you have an obligation to uplift and educate those who look up to you. Nelly has shown that he has forgotten that aspect of celebrity and having fans. Sometimes it's not about making money but about helping your brothers and sisters out of their negative situation.

Everybody hates dying. But some Nigga’s Die Hating – JadaKiss - Hate in your Blood

I was on searching for the proper definition of the word Hater the other day. I went to and I saw several definitions of what it could mean but for this blog I’ll stick to the one that best defines what I’m trying to say. So Hater is define as a person of discernment, with good taste and/or sound ethics, who sees clearly the degenerate, embarrassing, destructive, trite, self-serving, stupid, poor quality, and/or offensive nature of a person, a behavior, a product or a social trend, and says so.
Ladies and Gentlemen I’m a hater. The next question that I ask is am I a hater because I don’t go with the status quo and I express my opinion. Or am I just smart enough to see fault with a system or person, behavior, or social trend. I was watching the MTV Video Music Awards show the other night and I saw a lot of bullshit flash before my eyes in the span of the 2 hours and half that the show was on. Society is so easily programmed by the media and select members of society. I’m watching who the media has selected as the best rapper right now, Lil Wayne. As a rap fan I have marveled at how much he has improved and become a well rounded rapper but for me to call him the best rapper alive, hell no. However when your only competition is Souljah Boy, Hurricane Chris, Bow Wow, and Young Jeezy there aren’t many lyrical people in this group but this is his primary competition. Sitting here watching the VMA’s I realize why I hate this motherfucker so much, it’s not because of his rapping skills it’s because of his lack of concern about the influence he has on the youth. He’s parading around flashing his bandana broadcasting his gang affiliation. Gang violence is on the rise again and here is the so called most popular rapper (christened by the media) influencing countless children to join a gang. Many people aren’t going to agree with my thinking stating that rappers don’t have that type of influence over kids. However with the help of a powerful media machine, Viacom: MTV, BET, VH1, Spike TV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite, Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks, and TV Land you can influence a legion of people. So as I sit here watching this vehicle of control I realize how lost society has become. As a society we are influenced by drug addicts, prison culture, and television. So now we have the blind leading the blind with Lil Wayne leading the youth through his music. For this reason I am a hater I can’t fuck with this type of thinking. So sitting here watching this awards show I am amazed at how society has embraced Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse. They are both examples of the ills of society. They both have suffered from drug abuse and mental diseases. They have also won major awards this year. In my eyes the media is advocating this behavior. They are trying to keep society medicated and complacent by promoting drug use. So to this behavior I am glad to say that I am a Hater. Hi.

When everybody says Fuck Fox News they can’t just limit it to Fox News. They have to include the parent company as well News Corporation aka News Corp. News Corp is the third largest media conglomerate behind Time Warner and Disney which is run by Rupert Murdoch. So when I say Fuck Fox I also am saying fuck the other companies that are aligned and part of the News Corp family. I must say fuck Fox Sports so damn I won’t be watching any NFL games on any of the Fox Sports channels. Saying fuck Fox I won’t be able to watch any Big Ten football (Go Sooners) or basketball games because I’m saying fuck Fox College Sports Channel. So do I really mean fuck Fox because I won’t be able to watch my favorite pro Football and College Football teams play. Shit let me rethink that. But they are consistently disrespecting black people so Fuck em. But if I say Fuck Fox I’m also saying fuck Fox Broadcasting Company that means Fuck shows like Prison Break, American Idol, 24, and Bones. I love these shows but I’m going in when I say fuck Fox so fuck them too. So Fuck Fox but that also means fuck 20th Century Fox and all the movies that Fox puts out. That means fuck X-Men 3, fuck Star Wars episode 3 Revenge of the Sith, fuck Big Momma’s House, fuck Ice Age, fuck Casper, fuck Soul Food. Damn that’s a lot of movies I got to say fuck you too. I can’t do it. I’m gonna have to rethink my position. My son loves Ice Age and Alvin and the Chipmunks how do I tell him that Daddy is protesting something he doesn’t understand. So when I say fuck Fox I’m saying fuck you to the Hughley’s, fuck you to Family Guy, fuck you to Futurama, fuck you to X-Files, and fuck you to NYPD Blues. Aw hell what the heck am I supposed to watch? Ok fuck it I’ll just read books then so fuck Fox. But wait they own HarperCollins which is a huge book company. So that means fuck Paulo Coehlo and the Alchemist, fuck James Rollins and the Last Oracle, fuck, fuck Faye Kellerman and the Mercedes Coffin. Damn I’m not gonna be able to anything but read the news paper or magazines. But if I say Fuck Fox I’m saying fuck the New York Post and their racist asses, fuck the Wall Street Journal and fuck Barron’s. Damn it this shit is driving me nuts so fuck it. I’m just going to get on the internet and chill on MySpace. But if I saw fuck Fox I’m also saying fuck MySpace since they own this shit now. Aw shit I guess the revolution will not be televised this time around.

Yesterday was the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn. I usually go every year that I don't work. I like to go towards the end so I don't have to deal with the heat and the huge crowds for a long period of time. This year was no exception it was crowded and very hot. I was chilling and relaxing until the Hot 97 Float came through. I didn't know at the time who was on the float but the crowd was deep when they came through. It was already hot but when they came through they brought the heat with them. For over five minutes a sea of black, green, and yellow walked pass me. On the float was Beenie Man, Foxy Brown, Elephant man, Kardinal Offishall, Tony Matterhorn, and Serani. This was a beautiful event and was not filled with senseless violence and shootings like in the past years. Everything was great but I didn't get any Peas and Rice with my Jerk Chicken.


I was on a blog ( the other day and I saw something that caused me to pause. It was the date August 23, 1989. Even though it is 19 years later I can still remember what I did that day. It was August and I had a job that summer working as a messenger for Grace Messenger services. We delivered the payroll for businesses that were affiliated with Chemical Bank and they worked out of 55 Water Street. After work that day my homeboy and I went back to the hood and we chilled for a couple of hours and until he went to go see his girl and I went upstairs to see my moms and to eat. It was a hot ass August evening and we didn’t have Air Conditioning yet so I fell asleep on the couch. I woke up the next day like I normally do and was happy because it was going to be payday. I had planned to go to the movies that night. While riding the train I saw something I will never forget and which changed my life forever. It was the cover of the Daily News and it showed a senseless crime a murder that shooked the foundation of my city. A 16 year old African –America youth was shot to death by a mob of over 30 white males in Bensonhurt, Brooklyn. Yusef Hawkins and two of his friends went into the predominantly Italian neighborhood to answer an ad about a car. This senseless killing still hurts me to my heart because I can remember going with my cousin to his basketball games in Bensonhurt and he would be afraid to stay after dark because he wanted to get out of the neighborhood before the white guys come around. I was too young and stupid to understand what he meant then but less than 6 years later the murder of Yusef Hawkins made me understand what he meant at the time.
I am mad at myself because I forgot the anniversary of a significant time period for me. 1989 was the year I changed as a person and started to develop the foundation for the man I have become. So by the time this blog goes up I will have a private memorial for Yusef Hawkins. I’m going to walk by his mural on Verona Avenue and Fulton Street say a little prayer, go home and drink some henny and cry myself to sleep. Because now 19 years later the change that we prayed would come from his death is now possible with Barack Obama in position to win the Presidential Election. However no matter the results of the election I will never ever forget Yusef Hawkins and the manner in which he was taken from his family. Rest in Peace God
