Given the fact that sooo much has happened this year, I felt like I had to be a bit more light with this year’s Black Friday mix. From the passing of people that shocked the globe like Prince, David Bowie and Phife Dawg and the many more celebrities and those in out personal lives. The police murdering unarmed men and women to those individuals who murdered police l. Then there’s the fact Trump who is our President elect. Music is my constant and I know it’s not just me. This is another good mix, enjoy.

I’ve been late to this party kinda, I saw the teaser and this episode when it dropped because I follow Premium Pete on Instagram and Periscope, dude is an ill cook, which is what I thought he’d do with Periscope… Oh well. I’ve only gotten up to the Dallas Penn episode and I missed the Snitches one because I’m not really feeling Tax like that but here is a great first episode.. One smother note I really have no idea what happened with Pete and Combat Jack and whatever episode he shitted on Pete it must’ve been with a guest I wasn’t too into to attempt to checkout.
In this inaugural episode, Premium Pete introduces his new co-host Miss Lissa Knows, opens up about leaving the Combat Jack Show and lets the “internets” in on what’s to come. Miss Lissa dishes on why Love & Hip Hop starlet, Cardi B is underestimated and how Cardi is actually way smarter than people realize. The duo drops gems about platonic friendships and if you should remain friends with an ex. Plus, Phone-A-Friend feature, Just Blaze shares his thoughts on the passing of late/great Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest and explains the importance of health care. He also reveals he prefers boxers over briefs.
Of course I’m going to say watch this one. I’m from Newport “Bad Newz Va and just knowing someone from where I’m from, who lived in the same part of town as me made me a fan, even back when he was playing in Georgetown. If Jordan influenced how players played and changed the way endorsements were handled then Iverson changed the look and vibe as well as forced The NBA to make rules to keep things marketable to those fans not from the hood, like how I said that without saying that. Great Documentary about a Hall Of Fame player who deserves so much more respect from The NBA.
The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened?
This is a documentary about all the confusing that went into the making of Superman Lives. The move would have had followed the death of Superman comics and starred Nicholas Cage and directed by Tim Burton. The documentary is great and just watching it makes me want to see actual footage of the film. I don’t think Superman Lives would have been as well received as the Batman movie Burtaon did which brought The Caped Crusader back.
The Other Dream Team
This documentary is about the epic story of the Lithuania team that played in 1992 ‘s Olympics. The story dates back to stunning defeat of The USA team in 88‘ by Russia which had Lithuania players on it. The story goes even beyond basketball as the movie starts out more political and that fight for Lithuania’s independence rides side by side with rise of Lithuania’s players becoming globally recognized so much so that two players from the team were drafted in the NBA.
The fact that the Cincinnati Bengals lost Monday night isn’t what is shocking, it’s better to lose now then in the playoffs or fall into a slump right? One would love to say the Texans stepped up for a Monday night game, you also can say the Bengals did too, and that may have been the team’s downfall. There were way too many long passes dropped when all Dalton had to do was nickel and dime the defense. All the great teams do it, matter of fact they do it more than you know. Tom Brady did in the last minute of the game Sunday against the Giants in those last seconds to win the game. Now I’m not saying that would have gained a victory but it could have helped. I’m not giving into the primetime meltdown theory that for some reason The Bengals can’t shake, if anything they tried to put on a show and it backfired. The Bengals are the number one team in their division and as long they put the Monday night behind them they should be fine. They’re healthy, or healthier than a lot of other teams and they still can secure a by week in the first round since The Broncos have become an almost below average team in a matter of weeks. I predict The Bengals will get back to what we expect of them Sunday night. Two out of three primetime games could be great for a team accused of falling apart in those kinds o
With all the things going on with legal American citizens Mark Zuckerberg has chose to lobby for Immigration Reform. I personally don’t care but what i don’t get is how the same groups against Obama aren’t running around saying come together and protest against Facebook. Well, I guess that protest would have to start on Facebook, so never mind the protest now. The crazy thing is we as Americans always hear about how we should help those bright minds stay in America and never really hear about bright Americans and or programs helping them get ahead. How about jump in the debate for helping people afford college, or Americans having a working wage or just some programs that does something for those in lower income lifestyle who are just as bright as those this refom is supposed to help with no chance of excelling.
Speaking of bright students with chances of excelling, this is why the group was formed. This has nothing to really do with fairness to those who have lives their lives in America and now can’t further their education because of that technicality, no this is for those top percentage students who have that technicality standing in their way. Maybe Zuckerberg is keeping in line with American tradition by using immigrates to further his ideas for America. His Immigration Reform for students who can contribute to the tech world is no different than what people did with the Chinese and the railroad or Mexicans to the building of the SouthWest. Let’s be real Zuckerberg isn’t lobbying for the Hispanic who will end up working for at a hotel cleaning rooms or the African who sweeps the floors at the casino, I’m sure there is some screening process to this as it is no secret FWD.us is geared towards those who will help the tech world. So even Immigration Reform the way Zuckerberg is laying out isn’t for everyone. That’s American as apple pie. Inequality is American, just as helping immigrates that further your plans and needs is.
