My sock game has been on point since the Reagan administration. I have always felt it was an easy way to stand out. A way to pay attention to a detail that many people overlook. In fact, I received a "D" in gym one semester because I insisted on wearing argyle socks even though the rule said we had to wear white sweat socks. I guess he thought I would back down.
Nice feature on President G.W. Bush. He has also been pushing boundaries of the sock game for decades now. Guess you're never too old.
Big Hip Hop fan! I remember the first time I saw this cypher on BET and I've probably watched it a zillion times since then. Been in many debates about who won this battle within the cypher. The easy answer would be Eminem, but let's eliminate him for the sake of argument. My personal favorite was Royce Da 5'9 in this one. Thought he killed it from start to finish. Check out this blast from the past and choose for yourself!
When's the last time you had a family reunion? You know the one where you bust out the grill, get the cousins together, and spend hours at the domino table? A lot of times the most entertaining part of getting the fam together is when the music comes on and the kids go in. Nothing will bring on the laughter more than a two year old getting his Michael Jackson on. But times done changed! Music isn't the same, the robot ain't walking through that door, the Smurf has long gone, the Cabbage Patch retired with the Moonwalk. So what are the kids breaking out these days when mama says, "Show em what you working wit?" Well, Comedian Shed G has the answer!
Shed is absolutely hilarious! I follow him on Instagram @shedg, watch his videos, and keep up with his vent sessions on YouTube. This video cracked me up!
