Got the weight of the world on my shoulders. And I swear it feels like ten thousand boulders. I gotta go to work.Lately, I been off and out of sight, seldom out of mind. Get your business right, and stay the hell up outta mine. I gotta go to work.I’m tired, I feel wired but, yet, I’m still inspired. To find somebody else for the job, tell me I’m fired. I gotta go to work.
Thank God, the NBA lockout is over. Before tip-off this Christmas, Kevin Durant takes us to Oklahoma City for Nike’s Basketball Never Stops ad featuring music from Sam Cooke and a brief cameo from J.Cole.
“It’s so hard for me to sit back here in this studio, looking at a guy out here, hollering my name!—When last year I spent more money, on spilled liquor, in bars from one side of this world to the other, than you made! You’re talking to the Rolex wearing, diamond ring wearing, kiss stealing, whoa! wheelin dealin’, limosuine riding, jet flying son of a gun and im having a hard time holding these alligators down!”
God, this is the saddest shit ever. Last night, ESPN aired their latest documentary which featured professional wrestler, Scott Hall. During the 90s, Hall rose to prominence as “Razor Ramon”. But eventually, was pinned by drug and alcohol abuse. Take a look at his life on the razor’s edge.
In his prime, Scott Hall was a mountain of a man – 6-foot-7, 290 pounds of solidly sculptured muscle, appearing as close as invincible as they come. As Razor Ramon, he was one of professional wrestling’s biggest names and most villainous villains, busting chairs with the likes of Randy Savage, Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan in front of tens of thousands of screaming fans in sold-out arenas. And he loved the life that came with it: the parties, the women, the celebrity. But the high life soon started to slip away, and Hall has been desperately doing whatever he can since to hold on ever since. Hall’s slide seems to know no bottom – from his deteriorating physical and mental condition, to his ongoing battle with alcohol and substance abuse that has crippled his family life and resulted in pathetic public appearances in school gyms. But he’s hanging on, somehow. Now his only son, Cody, wants to follow in his father’s tortured bootsteps. E:60 chronicles the heartbreaking story of a man who is a shadow of his former self and desperate for one last taste of the glory days.
