Lucky Number 7

When I found out Melo chose the number 7. I thought about the dude, Kenny Walker. He definitely isn’t as Nice as Melo, and wasn’t good enough to get his number retired, But he has some ridiculous hops. Here’s some footage of the 1989 Dunk contest that he won.

Peep the dunk at 0:30: INSANE.

¡Welcome to New York, Melo!

What Number is Melo gonna wear?

via ESPN New York Peep the NBA STORE BEASTING!! LOL! They just couldn’t wait to Put his NAME on that Jersey…Couldn’t wait till They found out Dude’s Number! But New York Knicks Fans are definitely ecstatic. Carmelo got the Social Networking sites Popping. I must admit I’m a little excited myself. (pause) We haven’t made the Playoffs since 2004, when we got swept by the NJ Nets, and We haven’t won a Playoff Game since 2001. That’s a long fucking time. While doing an early spring cleaning this year I actually found some Knicks Promo/Memorabilia from 2001 and 2004. I gotta post some photos. Today, or Last night rather, was a night bearing great news for Knicks fans. I didn’t even want to entertain the idea because we were terrible for so long that it made me cynical that we would we good or have something good happen in a while. In some situations, I would rather expect the worst than expect something good and set myself up for Disappointment. And that’s what past 10+ years have been for us. A Disafuckingppointment. Although this trade doesn’t necessarily make us contenders over night, we can compete against a lot of other teams that we couldn’t have before. Hell, we weren’t even contenders the last couple of years.  Today was a good day, because this news was a Big Step in the Right Direction for the Knicks. I don’t remember the last time I felt We even Took even a Baby Step in the right direction. :/ Okay, time for Bed I got work later today. Good mornight, Knew York. :) http://alesserevilny.com/2011/02/22/¡welcome-to-new-york-melo/

I met the homey, Gilbere Forte’, a while ago while I was still cutting at Frank’s Chop Shop. You can view the previous post I made about him here.

Gilbere dropped this tape, Eyes of Veritas almost 2 weeks ago already.  So, I’m a little late here. But Better Late than Never, and  Better Sooner than Later.  This tape is Super Dope! Get up on it people! (pause)

I Fucks with the whole Mixtape, Front to Back. And it’s Rare that I Speak that Highly of a Mixtape or an Emcee/Rapper nowadays….

I particularly like the tracks “Born in ’87″,  ”The Exports”, ”Ballot or the Bullet”, and “Three Words”.
