I posted a picture of Reggie Bush wearing an “I can’t breathe” shirt on Facebook ……And then ‘Murica showed up.

Earlier today while checking out some football on NFL RedZone, I came across a picture of running back Reggie Bush with a Detroit Lions shirt on in pre-game warmups that read, “I can’t breathe” across it representing the last words spoken repeatedly by Eric Garner as he was brutally choked to death on camera by NYPD officer Daniel Panteleo. Being that Reggie plays for my hometown team, I decided to post the picture in support – First on twitter and then on my Facebook fan page. Surprisingly, only two or three trolls made appearances in the good ole mentions after the picture began making its rounds on Twitter. Meanwhile, over in the wonderful world of Facebook, Folks from my fan page clicked the “like” button numerous times and also shared the picture, but there were no comments made just yet. …Ok, excellent. ……Then I dozed off for an hour and some change.

…And woke up to a “comments” section that looked like Rosewood.

Apparently the post was “shared” with one or two folks who disagreed with the shirt thus opening the floodgates for trolls and cowards worldwide. <95% of the people who showed up in the comments aren’t even a part of my page or music following at all. It seemed as though most of these folks couldn’t wait to log in to Facebook and show off their slow lane talents in the art of trying to out-ignorant one another. It really does this thread no justice for me to sit here and attempt to explain the grade-A level fuckery contained within it. The masks usually come all the way off in situations like this, so it’s always good to be mindful that when reading through a thread like this, these folks could very well be your neighbors, your co-workers ….or hell, a friend of yours. I invite you to click below and check them in all their unfiltered glory.

Welcome to ‘Murica…

Questlove Takes ‘…just visiting too’ and Passes it Around

I REALLY planned on going to sleep last night at a decent hour (for me, that means before 1am). BUT, I just happened to be wrapping it up on Twitter at about 12:30… and saw a tweet from the brotha Questlove on my timeline that said:

meet Zo @Zo3hree5ive, your favortistist producer. the evidence?http://www.theforeignexchan…!-just_visiting_too.zip
12:40 AM Nov 4th from web

So I’m looking like, ‘Maaaaan, that’s dope! He just shouted me out along with the album…’ But then, it was brought to my attention by a friend of mine that the link he gave out was messed up and didn’t work… DAMMIT (little did I know, this was probably the best thing that could have happened). I sent him a DM (direct message on Twitter)… thanked him for the shout and provided a working link. The next thing I know, not only did he retweet it… but ended up passing the link to individuals making sure they downloaded the album and listened for themselves…

?uest sent the JV2 album link that I sent him to about 14 individuals to begin with…

And even started ‘introducing’ me to a couple of his people…


He apparently was hit up by a few people who wanted him to do the same for them… lol


Finally shutting it down…


A few folks responded…
