Now I'm your host, film producer Jason Slack, and today is Thursday, June 14, 2024. And on today's show, the first half season finale of season four. Here on the Slackest Talk podcast, we doing an all in mailbag show. Basically what that means is all questions go. That's sports, music, that's life. Whatever man. We combine in the two. Usually we do a sports mailbag. Other times we do like a regular question mailbag not related to sports. This time on the first half season finale, we combine into two all questions asked, all questions get answered. And before we get started, man, I want to give a shout out and a special congratulations to my boy, Jeremiah Hollins, who just graduated high school and he's going to college. Just in case you don't know who Jeremiah is, he's the youngest basketball player on Dream Elite that I ever got to coach currently. I want a break right now as far as coaching and you know him and TJ were my two youngest players, and they the last two to graduate. And of course, man, I'm proud to say that they both got scholarships, they both got office and college. They would be going on to play at the next level. And my dream is true. It's solidified, man. When I started Dream elite, this was the goal I had in mind. I know y'all heard me talk about it plenty of times, and some of them even, you know, multi talented, like, it's two or three different sports. And this was my goal, you know what I'm saying? I told everybody, you know, I would trade this for the world, man. Like, I could officially say all my players are in college now. And I just. I can't wait. You know, a lot of them, some of them are teammates in college. I have, you know, two of those, some of them in the same conference, they'll be playing against each other. I can't wait for that. Even though, you know, I can't root for one team during those games, you know, I can just be a fan of two players. And since these are the last two players for now, you know, I know my dream elite team is out there, you know, listening. Let me, once again, let me state the rules. You know, y'all play against each other. If you ask me, you know, which team I'm rooting for, I'm going to say dream elite. So basically what that means is, I wish, I hope that each player, if it's, let's say, one on each team, I hope that each player scores 40 points. And what I have, whatever happens from there happens, but I just want my dream elite members to be successful. Now, this is especially true, and this is going to hold true because none of my players went to Duke. Now, if anybody ever was to transfer and play for Duke, then, you know, we could renegotiate and we can come up with different plans. But until then, I'm dream elite. I wish all my members of success. I'm fans of all the schools that a dream elite member attends. It's always going to be Duke above everything. But, you know, I'm gonna be here rooting for all my players, man. I keep tabs. I keep up with y'all. And today, man, you know, my dream has come true. Everybody has gone to the next level, and it's just the beginning. I can't wait to see each and every one of them in the NBA, man. That's when it's going to get real serious. That's when things are going to really turn around, because then I'll have something else to look forward to. You know, I'm a Chicago Bulls fan. If Chicago is not in it, I want my Duke Blue Devils to have an opportunity to win a championship. And then also, you know, I would want my dream elite members to have a, you know, opportunity to be a champion. So that would give me something to look forward to. I got freshmen, I got sophomore sophomores and no juniors. There's freshmen and sophomore right now. And the time is edging. It's getting close. It's getting close, man. I'm just telling the world, look out, man. Dream elite and the NBA is going to happen real soon. But Jeremiah and team TJ, proud of y'all, man. And welcome to the next level, man. It's only up from there. Now, without further ado, let's jump right in to this special first half season four finale mailbag session. Let's get into it. And of course, man, the first question, man, y'all. Y'all bring it. Y'all bring the pain already, man. Y'all playing dirty from the jump. The first question is, which is the best player? Who's the. Excuse me? Who's the better player? Kyrie Irving or Jason Tatum? Now, first of all, man, you know, y'all wrong. Y'all wrong. And y'all wrong, man, on so many levels, man. Y'all know I'm a Duke fan. You know what I'm saying? I'm a die hard Duke fan. And y'all know how I feel about the brotherhood. Now, first off, man, let me tell you how wrong y'all are, man. Not only is it, you know, Duke versus Duke, but of course, you know, this question. This question came from because they meet each other in the finals, as I just spoke about earlier, you know, at the beginning of the session, how I, you know, if Chicago Bulls don't win the championship, I want my Duke blue Devils to have an opportunity to win. And, you know, here they are, you know, Boston versus Dallas in the finals. You got Tatum on one team and you got Kyrie and Derek lobly on the other. You know, somebody's going to win, guaranteed, but also, you know, somebody's going to lose. So it's kind of like, you know, bittersweet. But I can expect more of this because it's almost a duplay on every team, you know what I'm saying? We loaded. We just. All over the place. You know, we taking over the NBA. That's how I feel. I feel like we got enough players now to where one of us should win. A championship every year, you know what I'm saying? That's how I feel, man. We all over the place. Third is, you know, they play a different position. You know, normally I stay away from that because different positions means different jobs. You know, you have a different job, you know, it's hard to compare. You know what I'm saying? It's hard to compare when your role and your job is different. So I normally stay away from that. But here on the slackest talk podcast, you know, I promise y'all, y'all send the questions in, they get answered. So I have to deliver now on this one. Yeah, I'm gonna deliver in every angle. I'm gonna cover myself in all bases, man. You know, as far as which one was better while they played at Duke, I have to say I'll give the edge to Tatum. Why they play that Duke? Because Kyrie got hurt, unfortunately, and seems crazy, you know, Kyrie always been getting hurt ever since on the NBA too, man, and it's like hindering them. And he could have did. He got a championship ring already, man. But we talking about without the injuries, man, we talking about like, for sure, man, like probably top three point guard, man. I think when it's all said and done, he still has the opportunity to be there. But, you know, the injuries is the only, only thing that's putting his career in question. But I'll give the edge to Tatum while he was at Duke. Cause Kyrie got hurt. As far as the player that I had high hopes for coming to Duke, it was Kyrie, because I think, I believe he was the best point guard that we had ever since Jason Williams, you know, and he just got hurt. And he only played a handful of games. We was robbed a year. I was just, you know, the games that he played, he showed out, man. But that year, man, is this. I know he would have took over. Just imagine you get injured and only play a handful of games, but you still the first pick of the draft. Just imagine that that's Kyrie. But if you ask him today, as far as the NBA, today, again, you know, I have to give the edge to Jason Tatum. You know what I'm saying? He's the guy that I would pick right now. He's younger, first of all, you know, when you start, when you're trying to start a team, you know, you normally go with the most talented and whoever's the youngest player. So you could be able to build around him for years to come. He's younger. He's six eight wing. He can handle the ball. His handles, of course, is not as good as Kyrie, but he could shoot, he could take you off the dribble. He could pass. This is nothing that Jason Tatum can't do, you know, and less injury concerns than Kyrie, you know, so Tatum gets the nod. You know, I love them both, but, um, Kyrie's injury concerns and also, you know, I like to doing there as a special bonus. I like how Tatum got drafted by Boston, and he's been there ever since, you know what I'm saying? Like, he's been there since day one. He's taking his lumps. They got bounced out of the playoffs a couple of times, and now they on the verge of sweeping Dallas for his. For his first championship, you know, so they won, what, 64 games in a regular season. It's just Tatum's time now. It's his time. Plain and simple. Period. Point blank, man. It's his time. He wins this championship. You got to give him his just due, and you got to say that he's the best player in the NBA right now. You got to. So I'm going to go on Tatum, and I want to say this last thing about this question and the reason why this question hurt so much, and this is the main reason, above them playing at Duke, above, like, what's going on right now? Just think, you know, life is funny. Sports is funny. Sometimes people don't know what they got to actually think or to actually, I shouldn't say think, because it was reality to actually come to realize that Jason Tatum and Kyrie Irving was actually on Boston together along with Jalen Brown. That is just ridiculous. And I just don't understand how that did not work. You know what I'm saying? I just can't understand how that didn't work. You're talking about nobody could guard Tatum, nobody could stay in front of Kyrie. And then you got Jalen Brown, who's a probably. Probably the best defender in the NBA. I think he's underrated, a very underrated defender. And he can give you 20 points on any given night. Probably, I would say the best athlete out of the three. Out of him, Kyrie and Tatum. Just imagine, you know, them three was together, and it didn't work. Like, wow, two of my favorite Duke players on the same team and winning championships together. That's what it should have been, but it didn't work. But nevertheless, I'm going Tatum with that one. Next question, and this one is from Irv. What do you think about Vanessa Bryant not taking care of Kobe Bryant's parents. And this is like, wow, man. This is like. This is serious, man. I saw, like, a video about this the other day. Well, no, not the earlier this week. I'm sorry. And I didn't want to believe it, man, but it seems to be, like, floating around now, like this, I guess, actually actual reality. And so, to be clear, like, I haven't heard this from her, Vanessa herself. I haven't seen her do no interviews. This is just, like, other podcasts and other people talking about it. So, as far as I know, it hasn't been confirmed. So I'm just going off of, like, you know, what's circulating on YouTube and. And other podcasts and the podcast community, period. Now, this right here, if it's true, this one is crazy. This one is crazy. It's real crazy. It's real crazy. It's baffling to me, and I hope that it's not true. I hope it really is. Really not. This is, like, a. A real serious issue, so let's address it. And I'm gonna use this question as my point of teaching. You know, I like to teach he understand podcast. And this is gonna be that example for this episode. Now, this is for the guys out there, man. This is for the guys. Life is funny, right? So, you know, in life, sometimes things happen, you know, word on the street, Kobe Bryant, he didn't have the best relationship, you know, with his parents. You know, they wasn't. There was rumors that they wasn't really on speaking terms. And that's kind of, you know, weird. Cause his father was a basketball player, you know, but you never know somebody's situation, you know what I'm saying? I got family members that I don't get along with, so I can understand. I can understand that hustle, that way of life. Sometimes you got situations like that where you might not get along with family members or things may seem strange, odd, you know, whatever. What have you. When you have a girlfriend, right, or a wife, she. A man and a woman is not supposed to have the same ideas. I'll put it to you like that. They're not supposed to have the same ideas. Meaning a woman is not. A woman's mind is not trained to think like a man. It's just not possible. Their mind is not set up that way. Like, certain things that a guy could talk about to another guy. You couldn't say it in front of another woman. You know what I'm saying? Like, it's you. It is not gonna fly, you know, I'm saying? It's not, you know, and vice versa the other way around, too, right? So with that being said, right, any woman that you get, girlfriend, wife, or whatever, when she comes into your life, right, just because her mind is trained differently, she could have came into your life, right? And this is what did happen because he wasn't talking to his parents before he met her, you know? So that was the situation. Any woman that he brings into the fold, once they catch wind of him not talking to his parents, like, regardless of what happened, like, who fought, it is what happened. You can hear her side of the story. A woman is going to tell that man that he's bugging out for not talking to his parents. You know what I'm saying? If any respectable woman would tell they man that for the, for the simple reason, for the simple reason she might not have been around, she might not know all the details, but a woman is gonna tell her man that he's bugging for the simple fact that he would not be here today if it wasn't for his parents. You understand what I'm saying? Now, the man is probably not going to want to hear that, but it's true, you know, and she's going to do whatever she can to try to fix the situation or to try to make it better. Now, it may not work and Kobe might not listen, but as a woman, she's going to try to do that. You understand what I'm saying? Now, that's number one. Number two, the woman is going to look at it like, without the parents, not only would he not be there, but she wouldn't have never met him because he wouldn't be here. That's the second part of that. Now, the third part of that is they got kids. Those are her kids grandparents. You understand what I'm saying? There is no way, like, a woman can have that outlook about it. Like, that's just not a woman's way of thinking. Like, grandparents are the ones that's gonna take care of the kid, of the child. You know what I'm saying? Like, that's the main one. Like, I never got a chance to experience that. You know, having grandparents, they passed before I came in. A woman is just going to want that for they kids. Like, it's gonna, you know, make sure that they took them care of. Like, this is my kids grandkids. Like, they started this, they built this. Like, how, you know, how you gonna diss them? So, you know, that whole thing is, this is just crazy. You know, if true, she probably feel like she's honoring Kobe. But still, though, like, you don't sit and watch them struggle. Like, I'm hearing that they have to sell stuff off just to be able to, like, have a roof over their head. And I'm hearing that type of thing now. You just don't. You don't let it go that far. That's come on now. Like, his. His wife is taken care of, but his parents is not. And his parents is the reason why he had a life. Come on now. Let's be real. But, you know, I'm keeping a positive attitude, man. I hope that's not true. I hope that's just entertainment. That's just like, you know, somebody that don't have nobody, nothing to talk about, you know, or something like that. That just. That can't be right. You know what I mean? I'm gonna stick to that. And let's take a quick break here on the talk of the town. Now, when I come back, man, I got some more questions. Stay tuned, man. You don't want to miss it.

Welcome back here on the Talk of the town. Now it's your boy film producer Jason Slack, and we chopping it up. We having a first half season finale mail bag session. We getting it in, so let's keep it going. Our first question back from the break is from Mel, and it goes, what podcast do you like other than yours? Um, so, you know, like I said, man, you got to be a fan of what you do. Some of this probably, you know, some radio stations or radio shows also call themselves podcasts, too. So I'm just gonna give you a couple. Some I watch, some I listen to give or take. Um, I like drink champs with my boy Noriega. Um, I don't catch all of them, but when it's, like, somebody I'm familiar with and, you know, somebody I know, like recently, he had the dog pound on there. I caught that episode. He had Eric sermon. Doc, you know, I'm a fan of theirs. Drink champs. I like math Hoffa. Same. You know, when he has somebody I'm familiar with. You know, I checked that out. They have some good, like, conversations. Barbershop talk, the barbershop setting. I'm definitely a fan of that. I listen to shick knights podcast. I found that entertaining. You know, I listen to what he up to, what he got going on. He got a lot to say about Diddy, of course. You know, he still talk about pop and, you know, how it started, death row and all that kind of thing. So I listened to listen to Suge Knight. He come on like me once a week, sports wise, I listen to locked on jets. Matter of fact, that was one of the very first podcasts that I ever listened to. Locked on jets. You know, I'm a New York jet fan, and, you know, I like the way he do it, man. He breaks it down. He provides, like, insights on different, different things. And he goes in, man, he keeps it honest. You know what I'm saying? I like to listen to him to see if he has the same idea I have and, you know, just to make sure or see if I'm looking at the situation the right way. So, um, yeah, that's. That's a couple of them. Um, drink, drink, champs. Mav Hoffa. Suge knight podcast, locked on jets, I still listen to. I was my man with Charlemagne, um, the breakfast club. Still a fan of that. I check out Angelique, Angela Yee here and there. Everyone's in the blue. But, um, yeah, those are the main ones. Those are the main ones. Next question is from Kyle. What movie are you looking forward to seeing the most? Man, that's a. That's a good one. Um, for the short term, that's how right now, I still haven't seen the bad boys movie yet. I may try to go to see that this weekend just because, you know, I'm a fan of the series, you know what I'm saying? Like, see what they up to now. You know, this is the fastest turnaround from one to the other. I think the other one came out, what, last year or something like that. It was a quick turnaround. So that's in the short term, bad boys, the new bad boys movie. But if we talking about, like, period, like, what movie, I'm really looking forward to seeing, man, I can't wait to see training day part two. And I know some of you, some of y'all probably don't even know that training day part two is supposed to happen. They haven't started talking about it yet. You know, I'm saying, I just. I heard through somebody, and I seen, like, a couple of trailers here and there. And I know to some of y'all, it's gonna sound crazy because we recently, we just did an episode about, you know, movie sequels. How I feel about them, you know, how, like, most of them can't work. Training Day is a classic. Classic. One of my favorite movies probably, man. Like, one of my top five favorite movies, man. That's a movie I could watch over and over and over and never get tired of it. I could just turn on the end of King Kong. Ain't got nothing on me, man. And I could go straight to that and just like, it'd be like the first time I ever seen it, man, like this in amazement. One of my favorite all time movies. So I know y'all be shocked to hear me say that I waited for part two. Now, just in case y'all didn't know or y'all didn't see the trailer, part two, it has my man Ethan Hawk in there again, and this time, you know, he has another, um, another black officer with him. Now, it doesn't give anything away. I don't know. And it's good marketing, you know, I don't know if Ethan Hawk is dirty now and, you know, he out there, like, doing the legal things, or this other dude coming in is trying to come in and do his thing, you know what I'm saying? So it could go either way. Like, the trailer doesn't give nothing up, and that's. That's good marketing. But for that reason, it's not going to be better than the first. It can't be, you know, I already, you know, it's just impossible. But certain elements of a part two has me, like, intrigued. Like, if you listen to my show, which I know you. I know you did, I mentioned that a sequel has to have, like, in order for you to do a sequel, it has to have, like, something, a story that you can keep going with, you know, that you can keep, you know, maintaining and. And keep going, you know what I'm saying? You can sustain, like, uh, uh, you can. You can sustain longevity, and there's other stuff that. Other elements that you can add to it while also, like, keeping the original identity of the franchise, you know what I'm saying? And train a day is one of those, like, obviously, um, Lonzo died, but Ethan Hawkins still here. So it's like, what happened to him? Did he turn dirty? Is he still clean? What happened to the department after Lonzo died? And when they. And they figured out what happened, you know, is Dre doctor Dre and his crew, are they gonna be in it looking for revenge? There's certain elements to it that they can keep going if they do it the right way. You know what I'm saying? It's not going to be good as the part, the first one, obviously, but you got stuff there to work with where they could touch a part two again, if that makes sense. I'm just down to see, like, which route they go and will they, like, uncover some stuff from the first one that wasn't really answered yet, you know what I'm saying? And it's still gonna be a while before it come out, man. I think it's scheduled for, like, the end of this year, maybe even 25, man. So it's still gonna be a while, man. But, hey, you know, I'll be waiting, man. They got my curiosity. This next question is from Sims. Who is your all time favorite NFL quarterback? And or who's your favorite quarterback now? That's a good one, man. That's. That's tough, man. That's tough. And even before this question was sent in, man, I wrestled with this question for so long. One I usually go with when you talk about, like, favorites, like, all times in sports, I usually go with somebody from my favorite team, but, you know, I'm a New York jets fan, and unfortunately, like, quarterback is not our strong suit, to say the least. You know, I wasn't born when Joe Namath was playing, so, you know, I really, really don't have, you know, that to fall back on. And none of the other quarterbacks that we have ever had is, like, nowhere near, like, even worth being mentioning. So I have to, like, go outside the box on this one. I have to go in somebody else's backyard, so to speak. Um, I guess I have to say one right all time. If I had to say one all time, I would probably have to pick Randall Cunningham. And I know that's, like, surprising and outside the box, like, to a lot of people, like, I could have went Marino, Brett Favre, you know, a lot of, you know, a lot of different directions, but Randall Cunningham, I feel like he don't get enough props, first of all. A lot of people don't mention him, but, man, that dude, he had a cannon for arm, first of all. And he was one of the first dudes that I know that could take off and run. Like, he was just, like, fun to watch. Like, you know, he was, like, one for me. Like, that was one of the first quarterbacks that was actually, like, I was amazed by, you know, what I'm saying? And to my knowledge, he never won a championship. But, you know, like, his arm and how he could just take over with his legs. Like, you know, he was one of the first to me, you know, as far as skill set, like, he was one of the first dudes that I ever recognized from that position. And I looked at him and I said, man, that dude is. That dude is it? You know, that dude is tough, you know? So I go with Cunningham. Close. Second would be, I like my man Steve young. You know, he would be second. I like how he came in and took over for Joe Montana. It's crazy. Like, back to back hall of fame quarterbacks. The jets can't get one, and teams just got these hall of famers coming out of the pipeline, and my team can't get one. But same thing, man. He was left handed. He would take off. He would take a hit, too. He would take a wild hit, man, and he'll just keep on going. But how he, like, came after hall of Famer, and he became a hall of famer himself. Like, you know what I'm saying? I say he's second. But Randall Cunningham was my favorite back in the day and my favorite now. And before I say it, I already know. Y'all go say it's corny, you know, I'm only saying that now. And you go, you. You already know who I'm talking about, too, as I say this, but y'all gonna say it's corny. Y'all gonna say, you know, I just like him. Cause he's on my team now and all that kind of stuff, and. But, you know, it's Aaron Rodgers. And I'm not saying that because he's the jets quarterback. I only got a chance to see him for four plays anyway in a jet uniform. So, you know, officially, you know, I have nothing to really cheer about yet. But, nah, in all honesty, like, he was my favorite quarterback in the league now, even before, like, it was a possibility of him joining the jets. Long before, it was a possibility of him joining the jets. Like, you know, people talk about Tom Brady, Joe Burrow and all them, but Aaron Rodgers, you know, year in and year out, does numbers, man. Does numbers. Hall of Fame quarterback. He got his Super bowl win. Like, he's just one of the smartest. You know, he doesn't. He can't really beat you with his legs, but he has that factor about him. He just knows where to throw the football. Like, he could break down the defense. Like, he is indescribable. Man, I watched him so many years in Green Bay. I said I was always a fan, you know, long before, you know, it was ever, you know, him coming to the judge was. Was ever a thing. It just, you know, he's not athletic. He probably don't have the strongest arm. He has an arm, but, I mean, I'm sure there's quarterbacks out there that has a stronger arm. He just old fashioned. He knows what to do. Like, he knows if this linebacker is standing here, you know, this must be going on. He'll call an audible at the line of scrimmage. Like this. One of the smartest people in the game, you know, he knows where to line people up, adjustments, how to catch people slipping, how to catch people offsides. Free play. You just can't go against that. You can't teach that knowledge of the game. And please believe, man sims, I'm gonna like him much better when he brings the Super bowl to New York this year. Please believe it. Let's do another one before we take another break. This one is from. I think it's pronounced Al low alo. Al low. Who is your all time favorite actress, man, I see y'all into the all time game today. I think. I feel like I answered this one before, man. It's, um, on one of our other mailbags, and it's Regina King, man. You know, I grew up on her, man. She was on 227. Her catalog is crazy. And I just, like, it'd be hard pressed for you to find somebody that can magic. She started off in. Well, for me, she started off in 227. That's a classic tv show that everybody know about. She was in Friday, classic movie. She was in boys in the hood, classic movie. She was in poetic justice, classic movie. And I can't think of the other joint with higher learning. Higher learning. Now that also had ice cube in it. Classic movie. Classic movie at the classic movie at the classic movie. And all these are, like, some of these are, like, the same year, you know, saying, like, all back to back to back to back. And, like, she just nails it, man. Like, whatever role you give her, she's straight, you know, I'm saying she could pull it off, you know? Know, like, whether it's tv shows, voiceovers, movies, whatever. She got it covered, man. And still going today. I haven't seen her in a minute, so it's about that time, man. You know, I haven't seen her in a while. You know, I'm gonna need her to do better. But this overall, like, talented, like, catalog is crazy. Like, I didn't. I left out a whole bunch of movies, too. You know what I'm saying? That I'm gonna be mad about when, when I go back and get off this episode, I'll be like, man, I even mentioned that one, but yeah, definitely, man. Favorite actress? Regina King, without a doubt.

I appreciate y'all staying with me, keeping it locked right here on the first half season finale episode. As always, man, I appreciate y'all. And let's keep it going. Um, this question is from QR, and he wants to know what's in my. My movie watch list right now. Like, what am I, what am I watching? What movies or tv shows am I really, like, tuned into these days? And, man, I'm. I'm actually, like, getting it in, man. Um, tv shows, like, stable is my guy. Like, um, I'm binge watching law and order, the. The crime. The crimes unit, special crimes unit with. With Stabler, my boy. Stabler's back. He been back for a minute. And, you know, I've been meaning to catch it for a while, man. So, you know, I'm just, like, going through it, man. I'm on, like, season number three now. I gotta get caught up, but I'm definitely. I'm on that. I'm watching this tv series on Hulu called Clip, and it's, uh, it's about the. The Donald Sterling. It's the Donald Sterling story. Um, just in case you don't know who that. Are you familiar with that story? He was the. The owner of the Clippers for some years, and, you know, he had the mistress. She was recording his conversations and, you know, she recorded him. He was basically, you know, he was a racist. And, you know, she recorded him, you know, talking some foul stuff about, you know, asking her why she was supposed to be half black herself. And, you know, he didn't want her, like, dealing with black people. You know, he's basically calling his players, like, property, like, told him he gives them lifestyles and stuff like that. And, you know, basically, you know, he just turned the world, the NBA world and the regular world upside down. They just couldn't believe, you know, what they was hearing. And, you know, after a while, you know, he got his team stripped from him, you know, rightfully so. And that was just a whole big major thing in the sports world. And series is pretty good, man. They got, uh, they got my man Lawrence Fishburne playing Doc Rivers. They got my man, you know, Al Bundy, you know, he's playing. He's playing Donald Sterling, you know, so it got some people in there, and basically, you know, like, of course, true story. It's a. It's a series right now. It just came out, too. Like, I just watched. It's a new series, and I just watched episode three. That's the only episode. There's only three episodes that's out right now. Like I said, it's fairly new. Came out about, I think, like, maybe two or three weeks ago. And, man, you know, I definitely do encourage y'all to watch it, but, man, if I. If I could just give, like, one part of it that I found out, actually, two things, man. First, I don't think I really knew that Chris Paul and Blake Griffin didn't like each other. You know what I'm saying? That was. That was crazy, because you. You really couldn't tell it. You really couldn't tell by the way they played on the court. You know, Chris Paul was doing all those lobster to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. And that just goes to show you, man, like, it's just a job. You know what I'm saying? It's a job. You know, you ain't gotta be friends off the court. And a lot of times, that's the case. But that one. And, you know, crazy, man, when I heard the story about, you know, Donald Sterling and, you know, I heard about his mistress, he taped them, you know, she recorded them, and she put it out for the world to listen to. I don't know, man. I just assumed that, man, you know, Donald. Donald Sterling was. Was having sex with this girl. And, you know, for somebody that, you know, you bought her stuff, like, you bought her houses and stuff like that, and, you know, she's in with you where she could record you and all that. Kind of stuff. I just assumed that, you know, I know he is an older guy and everything, and she was kind of young, but I just assumed that he was at least trying to, you know, I'm saying at least, like, I mean, I'm sure there was something she could do for him, you know what I mean? And I found out, like, according to the show, they wasn't doing anything. They was just, like, cool. Like, he wasn't having sex with a nun. And, I mean, I know that's not everything, but, you know, to me, for me, man, like, if you, like, close enough to me to be able to get my team taken away and I'm confiding in you and all that, I'm telling you stuff that you can't repeat to other people. I mean, that gotta be the case, man. I gotta be having sex with you, man. Like, you know what I'm saying? Like, it just, like, there's no way, like, you got me like that. And I'm not really doing anything with you, you know, I could lose everything for, like, practically nothing. That's crazy. If that's, if that's true, that's crazy. But yeah, man, this call, clipped, you know? Clipped, clipped. It's on Hulu, man. You know, check it out. You know, true story. Good acting, good cast and everything. Check it out. Check it out, man. Good story. And if I could just give you one more, man, I'm on my, like, I'm on my old school, back in the day movement right now. Like, I'm into, like, watching movies that came out before I was born. You know, I'm saying, you know, I'm a movie head. You know, I'm a writer. And, you know, I like, I like to go back to when it first began. Like, you know what I'm saying? I like to see how it was when, when it first started. And getting to the point, the reason why I do that I'm into movies like that is because I learned a lot. You know what I'm saying? I got, um, I got a lot of older friends and a lot of ogs that get the game from, and they put me on and I learned something. One of the movies that my man, OG, you know what I'm saying? Og, Mike Johnson, shout out to him. One of the movies that he put me on is this movie called Bucktown, and it starring Fred Williamson and Pam Greer, right? I had never seen it before, you know, first time and, you know, a couple of, maybe, like, last week, I watched it for the first time and I liked it. And what I saw was, I saw my man Apollo Creed from Rocky. He was in there. I saw a couple of other people that I recognized from other movies that I've seen and stuff like that. So that's one thing. Like, you go back, you get to see, like, somebody that you familiar with when they first started that you ain't always there. So, you know, that's. That's one of the first things that you could, that you could learn is like, you know, who's who? Like, this is what this dude looked like when he was younger. You know, I'm saying, in the beginning. So that aspect of it, but not only that, you know, the movie is called Bucktown, right? But before I seen Bucktown, I seen this movie with busta rhymes, and it's called full clip. And I kind of seen that movie. I believe that movie came out in old, like, round 0204 or something like that, maybe starring Busta Rhymes. Exhibit rest in peace, prodigy from OPD. Low budget film, but kind of a good story. I kind of liked it. You know what I'm saying? I'm willing to give stuff a chance. Like I said, movies. That's what I'm into. So I saw that movie years ago when it first came out. Little did I know at the time when I came out and I first seen it was, that's actually, that movie was actually a remake of the movie Bucktown that, you know, movie buck time that I just seen. I never knew that. I never knew that, like, same story, like, basically, you know, they trying to save a town and all that kind of stuff. And, you know, I don't want to give it away because, you know, I'm telling you, as I'm telling you, I want you to go ahead and check it out for yourself. But, yeah, a full clip starring Busta Rhymes was actually a remake of the movie Bucktown, you know, starring Pam Greer and Fred Williamson. I did not. I did not know that up until a couple of days ago. So, I mean, that's why you go and you look at old school stuff, man, because you learn stuff. Like I said, man, you know, everything you see out here today, something came before it that inspired it. And, I mean, you know, that's the reason why you go back in your history, man. You find out a lot, man, a lot of information. But, um, that's what I'm, that's what I'm into right now. Old school movies. I'm looking at crimes unit and also a tv series called Clip. Those are my three that I'm into right now. Next question. Who do you consider your favorite rapper of today? Favorite rapper today? I'm gonna go with J. Cole. J. Cole reminds me, even though he's a young cat, he. His flow, his flow, his style, the things that he rap about, he reminds me, not saying he's on a level or he's, this is good, but he kind of, like, puts me in the mindset of Nas and Jay Z. You know, he actually has, he actually raps about stuff. You know, he has a story to it, you know what I'm saying? And he produces a great businessman. I think he owns part of the Charlotte Hornets. You know, Hurley is a good ball player, too, man. You know what I'm saying? But, yeah, you know, J. Cole is that dude, man. He's lyrical. He actually has a story to it, and it has a, has a meaning to it. You can understand, like, what he's saying. You know, he can switch up his style. Like, this is a complete overall, overall player, you know, rapper, you know what I'm saying, in the game. And he's been, it's becoming to a point now where he's like an OG. He's been in the game for a while now. I can't tell you what year he started, but it's been a minute. You know, he was signed by Jay Z, so he had a lot of pressure on him. And, you know, he delivered, too. You know what I mean? It's still doing his thing. So, like, I would probably say that's, that's, that's my go to man. Him and probably Kendrick would be like, second, and our last question of today, what do I make about people making comments about Tupac today? Um, so what I think about it, it, um, it obviously depends on the person. If, if you're a person that, that he knew, I don't mind it, like, trench, you know, they was close. Um, obviously, you know, Suge Knight, the guy that signed him to death row. Snoop or the dog pound, anybody from death row that knew him and recorded with him. Okay, I go with dad, obviously, like, one of the outlaws. I'll go with dad. But if, you know, I never met him. I'm just a fan of his, you know, and I speak about him all the time. But in good faith, though, like, his music, his hard work and stuff like that. And, you know, that, that kind of thing. If you're a fan of his, no problem. You know, you're supposed to keep his legacy going and stuff like that. But to anybody else, like, if you ain't really know him like that. You know, you wasn't, you didn't recall with him, you know, you wasn't under the same label, or, you know, you really didn't have no dealings with him. If you're a person that, you know, you was around when he was alive and you ain't have nothing to say, and then you just started talking after he passed away, I think that's corny. Anybody that has, like, any. Anything negative to say about him, is this just being corny at this point? You know, he's not here to defend himself, you know what I'm saying? And no things of that nature. If you wanted something to talk about when it comes to pop, it should be the positive stuff about, you know, how he lived in the studio, how he could record a complete album in three or four days. And the album is, it's a classic album. It's not just something that's done together. You know, let's speak about how he wrote his own lyrics. Let's speak about how he would come out with an album and then go do a movie. Let's speak about how he has seven movies, seven to eight movies, and he was only 25 years old. Let's talk about how, you know, he has ten plus albums and he's only 25 years old. Let's talk about how he has more platinum albums after he passed then most people have living. You know, I'm saying, let's talk about how, you know, he loved his mother, how, you know, one of his greatest songs was appreciation to his mother. Let's talk about how, you know, he could read the newspaper backwards because, you know, his mom was a black panther. You know, those are the things that, you know, should be talked about. You know, how people could, like, take from what he did and build on it and try to make a. Build a legacy for their own self. You know, things like that. I don't know. You know, those are things that should be talked about. And if you have nothing to do and you, you know, you kind of close, take your kids to go see the Tupac statue in Atlanta, you know what I'm saying? That's what I'm gonna do. But either way you look at it, you know, you still gonna be the greatest of all time, man. And this a guy that had the greatest impact on hip hop. You know what I'm saying? Without a doubt. But, you know, that's it for me. That's a wrap for the first half of season number four here on the slackest talk podcast. Our next show as of right now, man. You know, we take a this a month break in the middle of the year. It's that time, you know, our next show here on the Slackest talk podcast, it's on July 18. That's when we begin our, you know, second half of season number four here on the talk of the town now. But, you know, y'all know how it is, man. You know, anything come up between well, before, between now and then, we be back here chopping it up as always, you know, always got the. My ears to the streets, you know, keep it locked, man.
