#FuckNigga Weekly: Brother Baines & Terrence "Dresser" Williams

Brother Baines was the man who introduced Malcolm X to Islam. He introduced Malcolm to Hon. Elijah Muhammad, pretended to be a upstanding black man. In the end it was only so long fake niggaz could pretend, and the snake came out of Brother Baines. While never being prosecuted for the murder of Malcolm X, you can come to your own conclusion regarding his involvement. Verdict: Brother Baines = #FuckNigga Terrence "Dresser" Williams was a fictional character in the movie "5 Heartbeats". While not a main character in the movie, he did have one of the most memorable "Fuck-Nigga" moments in the film. Dresser found out he had impregnated a woman right before  the group blasts off in to stardom. Meaning he would have to leave to get a job to make enough money to support his family. Eddie King Jr and Duck Matthews reached into their pockets and gave "Dresser" all the proceeds they had made from their smalltime tour. Now, Fast-Forward years later Eddie

P1's 2 Cent: Off Air Conversations

(Phenomenal 1 will be posting entries here @ Check it out!) So in the course of my travels and opportunities ive been a part of many radio/tv/print interviews. and its always fun. The on air interviews are usually pretty safe and to the point. But the CRAZIEST stuff comes in to play off the air. I admire the interviewers that take it to the edge and are risky with what they say. The homie Stretch1 is one of those people that holds no punches and will say what he feels. His respect is great with me because he helps put on the people in the city and has one of the most fun and successful college radio shows consistently. Always featuring local talent alongside industry HEAVYWEIGHTS and bringing controversial issues to light. He is, has been, and I am sure will continue to be an advocate for the artist that are striving and sometimes going against the "machine" SO with that I salute you Stretch, and I encourage everyone to give him at least a chance and ch

What you know bout TakeDown Tactics?

In the photo above, this old head demonstrates the end result to a TakeDown Tactic.  A TakeDown tactic is a move or a series of moves used to "TakeDown" your prey.  A takedown tactic is not "game" ran on a female, its no physical assertion against the "prey". It is an event or series of events that occur before sex. Incorrect way to use Takedown  tactics "She wan't trying 2 come off that pussy, had 2 use a Takedown tactic." (If you used force, or pressed the issue too much, you may need to consult an attorney, not Correct way "She was trying to kiss on me, I dodged her, bent her over, killed her" (You have successfully executed a TakeDown tactic) We all fuck, some of us make love. Not just anybody can use TakeDown tactics. Consult you nearest Real nigga 4 details. (TakeDown Tactics will be updated bi-monthly, stay tuned!)
