Pleased to Meet Me

Branching off from Friday’s post about popular myths having to do with black men, I thought it’d be interesting to create a similar post addressing several myths about yours truly.

I’ve resisted writing about myself too much here because a) XXL is a hip-hop magazine, not a Bol magazine, b) I invariably end up writing so much about myself anyway while ostensibly discussing hip-hop, and c) I’ve got my own blog in which I’ve already written quite a bit about myself.

Indeed I imagine hardly any of the following will be news to anyone who’s been following my shit for the past year or so. But based on some of the claims about myself that I’ve seen bandied about in the comments section here, I’m sure there’s at least a few of you who could stand to learn a thing or two.

So, without further ado.

Myth: Bol is a white guy.

Truth: Does Bol look like a white guy in his pictures? Obviously not.

Here’s the thing: from the time my own blog started – about three years ago – up until about a year ago, there weren’t very many photographs of yours truly on the Internets. There was a picture of me drinking a beer on my roommate’s blog about two years ago, but it’s long since been taken down.

Except for a brief period in which I pretended to be a 60-year-old white guy (and was subsequently threatened with a lawsuit), I never claimed to be anything other than a twenty-something black guy. But because so many black people obviously struggle with the English language, people assumed that I couldn’t possibly be one of them. I’m at a loss though for how this is my fault.

Myth: Bol lives in his mom’s basement.

Truth: As amusing as it is to think of a grown-ass man living in his mom’s basement, playing on the Internets at all hours of the day and night, this is just patently untrue. I haven’t lived at my parents’ house on a regular basis since I was 18 years old, way the fuck back in the 1990s.

I started out blogging from my dorm room, out in Chicken Switch, MO, and then I lived with my parents for about two weeks after I graduated from college, about two years ago. Since then, I’ve lived in a series of shitty apartments, surrounded by people’s filthy pets and Indian and all of the other bullshit you have to put up with when you rent.

My parents’ basement is shangri-la by comparison.

Myth: Bol is a failed journalist.

Truth: This one was actually put forth most recently by underground rap legend Slug. It goes a little something like this: Bol studied to become a journalist, but he sucked so bad the only job he could find was writing about rap music for the kind of imbeciles who read XXL.

Again, there’s just not a scintilla of truth to this claim. First of all, my degree is in business, not journalism. The only writing classes I took were the same shit everybody else had to take freshman year, assuming you went to college. Blogging is just some shit I did to pass the time during my epic, marathon senior year; and for what it’s worth, I’ve had some success at it.

If Bol is a failed journalist, what does that make the legion of d-bags who studied this shit and aren’t even as prominent as Bol?

Myth: Bol attacked your favorite rapper.

Truth: Quite the contrary. Take for example the case with Bun B. I brought up what I thought was an interesting point having to do with the campaign to free Pimp C, as if he didn’t deserve to go to jail for the shit he did. Next thing you know, Bun B was on here ordering me to shove things in my pussy. No Siobhan from the Wack Pack.

In the case with Lupe Jihadist, all I did was note that it seemed silly of him to complain about his album getting leaked when that was the best publicity he’d received up until that point. Next thing you know, he was on here calling me all sorts of dreaded n-words and threatening to jump off in my ass. No Luther Vandross.

Noticing a pattern?

Myth: Bol gets paid on a per-comment basis.

Truth: Bol receives his monthly shipment of peanuts and remaindered XXL Raps CDs (of which I’m sure there’s plenty) regardless of whether you d-bags run up the comments score with your bullshit.

I think my go-to guy Noz addressed this one before, but basically, XXL management doesn’t meddle with your blogging at all, except when you step over the line. (Then they get all Orwellian on you.) I’m sure management appreciates the time you all spend reading and commenting on this shit, but that’s definitely not why I write what I write.

    Why you put a link to everything else you talk about? But you didn’t put a link to your PIMP C column?

    First of all – who are you to say he “deserved” to go to prison?
    Were you there? Do you have complete transcripts of the trial? Did you consider the crime versus the amount of time given? You were bogus with what you said.

    Then if I remember correctly you said, all of this (The Free Pimp C campaign) and then we come to find out THAT HE CAN’T EVEN RAP.
    That’s what you said nigga!
    That’s what made Bun B roast yo ass.

    He pulled your card about calling into question the talents of a nigga that you never listened to prior to him being locked up. Yeah, he embarrased you nigga. Why don’t you put a link to Bun B’s response to you so we can laugh again?

    ^^ Clearly the issue with the Saints was Hasslett and Brooks, not to mention the laughable defense over the past few seasons. The inconsistent play from Stallworth and Deuces injurys the last two years also hurt us. And I won’t get started on the penalties and the playcalling over the past few years either.

    If they could just find someone (even some cerebal palsy kid) to replace Mike McKenzie in the secondary, I’d say we have a legit shot at the playoffs. Let’s be reasonable though, the Saints are performing better than expected and have some tough games up ahead…

    However I don’t really see them being able to take Chicago.

    Implying that the NFL is rigged is pretty idiotic.

    And personally, I don’t think there is anything wrong with being a white failed journalist living in your mothers basement and attacking rappers while being paid per comment.

    Bol is fat & ugly.

    Bol got sunned sumthin terrible by Bun B & sumwhat by Lupe.

    Bol Deserved it (stop playin the innocent card you plump faggit)

    A steady diet of beer, twinkies, & poverty has left him smelly, ignorant, & senile.

    Bol & Rey are Myspace petafiles.

    Luke Jackson.

    And what does that make the people who read & make fun of Bol you ask???

    It makes us a bunch of working class hip-hop heads who enjoy laughing at the shortcommings of a slovenly bloggers life which is most likely worse than ours. Fuck you Bol

    The Bears are the most overated team in the nfl…look at there shcedule…they dont play anybody near the top ten in rankings…once they get to the playoffs they will lose…watch em get exposed in front of a national audience today…and Brooks was the problem…Hasslet should have stepped down to Defensive coordinator because he is defense minded…McKensie is always there but he needs to practice stripping the ball thats the diference in him getting juiced and making a good play…

    Rey and Bol…..the jedis join forces.
    There is no way the Saints can beat the Bears in the playoffs. Drew Brees is a bad mathafucka though, and R. Bush seems overated.

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    How is Reggi Bush overated…he has an affect on a play even when he doesn’t get the ball i.e. Deuce 59 yard td last week, was set up by a fake end around to bush.

  •,Version=1,Version=1 Rey

    Eloquence, thy name is Fern.

  • loosenut

    Bol…Good blog dude…Seriously…But uhhh if you are not a failed journalist because you did not study journalism does that make you are a failed businessman because you studied business and write in the place of a failed journalist?


    Actually, the Saints and the Giants are tied for the 3rd hardest schedule this year.

    While Reggie Bush is overrated, I think it was impossible for him to live up to all the hype he had going into the season. The yards will come, but he has been an effective reciever and decoy.

    They shouldn’t give him the ball inside the 5 though, that is straight retarded.

    Mike McKenzie is “always there” because they throw to whoever he is covering on every play. Then, as he makes another patentent “grab for the dick arm tackle” the reciever gets another 10 yards until Harper/Bullocks/Stoutmire tackles them. A good corner is one whose name you never hear mentioned during the game.

    Week 8 Vs. Baltimore at home will another hard game. I hope they don’t have McNair.

    i don’t think too many people care whether or not the myths are true/false. the simple fact is that we’re all a bunch of shit-talkers who – unless we’ve had an actual physical confrontation with – could be the d-bag that let those nuclear weapons off in north korea.

    at this point, the saints could probably handle the bears [do they play aginst each other? i'm an eagles fan, so the only care i really care about is their jump-off against the colts on thanksgiving]. superbowl predictions anyone?

    “ran outta ammo & started throwing bottles.” classic!


    R. Bush is overated bcuz there is no way he will ever live up to his college hype. I mean come on, some people even compared him to B. Sanders! Never! B. Sanders was the best rb ever. Right behind W. Payton though. R. Bush has trouble gaining 60 yards rushing a game. He has skills but not B. Sanders, Payton, E. Smith or evn Tomlinson skills.

  • the iz

    Since I feel particularly responsible for the dessemination of bad information aboutr Bol (vis a vi intentionally ambiguous language in my QnA), I feel it appropriate to devulge even more information on Bol, some that he himself would be unlikely to tell you.

    –based on my meeting with him, I can tell you that, despite the demogouguery, Byron might be one of the nicest, most self-effacing, unassuming cats I have ever met. Not over the top in any way whatsover. SO low-key I thought he was drunk. Wait. I think he was…

    —Byron is roughly 6’3+ tall, about 360. Think of a full-sized NFL linebacker. Remember “The Refridgerator”? Picture him, and you got a good mental picture of Byron. No homo. Wouldn’t make that up.

    –Based on his stature, I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that the childhood nickname, “Bol”, is probably short for “Manute Bol”, the once-famous basketball player from Africa. Not that he bears him any resembalence, but he is definitely basketball-tall. Again, just a guess.

    —He writes like he talks.

    –He talks like a suburban hipster white boy who read Joyce in junior high and took AP English.

    –In his earlier writing, Bol alludes to being partially Hispanic. My guess is Afro-Cuban, and my guess is on the maternal side.

    — While he would find working for a daily restricting, Bol grossly underestimates his ability as a writer with potential for a career in alt-journalism. Byron could walk into any music magazine in NYC and get a job writing, just with clips from his blog. Right now. (If Hashim could do it, how hard could it be? ;) )

    Elliot “Yellow Water” Wilson, who doesn’t believe in the “super-star writer” (even as he wakes up every morning next to one) hasn’t wised up yet and given him a shot in print, and ultimately, someone else will, and, once he gets addicted to verb money (easier than dope money, if you’re good), they will snatch him away. Bol has great short game and the tight argument–nhjic– but the test will be something more long-form, 1000+ words, something through his filter, without so much of his opinion. If Elliot was smart, he’d give Bol a crack at something long-form for print.

    If, I said.

    anyhoo. Carry on.

    ^^ I dunno, I fully expect Ju. Jones (no TI) to break down at somepoint, which isn’t to say that Barber III isn’t a servicable backup.

    I agree Bush needs to gain some strength and also change up his running style a bit. Deuce is looking amazing coming back from surgery so fast. Colston is the future, Horn has got his swagger back.

    I don’t really think the Cowboys are that good truth be told. I mean Bledsoe is immobile, the WRs and TE are good.. But I dunno if they are even the best team in the East.

    So young QB’s are either 1st or 2nd season. 3rd season makes you a vet?

    And it doesnt count if they have a good team around them. I would argue that just about every team that wins in the playoffs either..

    1) Has a really good D

    2) Has some good players around the QB.

    Yes…the Saints are 5-1, & if the Bengals lose, I either want the Seahawks or Saints to win it all. Bears wouldnt make me mad either.

    yeah i read this shit for the same reason i would watch Fox news over CNN.

  • dontmatter

    LOL at everyone who read a blog titled “Pleased To Meet Me….Popular Myths about Bol Debunked” and then took the time to say they don’t want to read about Bol.

  • Cthulhu

    Okay so I guess this was your reply to my message to you on myspace and it is greatly appreciated, I know how important I am to you.

  • gettohellsoon

    Sure Bol, we believe you.

  • thoreauly77

    cthulhu- i think bol is crushing (and not in the big pun sense of the word) on you.

  • fla all day

    is he related to manute?

  • Al Simmons

    All the obviously hypocritical and deluded people hating on Bol ask yourselves this question.

    1. If you didn’t find Bol’s blog interesting, you wouldn’t bother to visit the site?

    Or could it be your all gluttons for painful insults and masturbate while scrolling and gritting your teeth. I wouldn’t go on a KKK blog because I have no interest in their ish! This is intriguing reading that’s why you’re here. Don’t front.

    Plus I suspect that the majority of the bloggers on here who claim not to give a shit about Bol’s post’s (then surprise, surprise, end up commenting) are more than likely some confused in-betweeners (hey I made up a word) who are Desperately trying to make ties to a culture that has no relevance to them.

    And I know for a fact that one of you in-betweeners is going to say something sounding vaguely like this

    “Hip-Hop is for everyone! It’s for the people! It’s the people’s music”

    Fuck that and fuck you.

    Example (of how we never get to keep ish for ourselves therefore systematically losing identity)

    Heavy Metal > Angry white music

    Bangra > Indian (Red Dot) music

    Flamenco > Spanish music

    Hip-Hop> In-betweener : “Ermmmmmm It’s for everyone” (We can’t let them jigs keep or own nothing!)

    Hip-hop is black music talking about primarily black issues, regardless if the content is that of prosperity or struggle. I know that there are derivatives of hip-hop but that’s another subject.

    posting a blog about yourself? …PLEASE! now i see why you’re a failure.

    @Al Simmons

    I agree with you on some points and disagree on others. I do visit this site time to time, but more for the headlines, reviews and new tracks than for the blogs. I do look foward to bol’s blog more than most, just to see if he will out retard himself. Which, by the way, he hasn’t let me down yet. As far as hiphop being for everyone, I do believe that. Thier are plenty of black folks that listen to rock and heavy metal. Fans are fans, artist are not going to tell them not to listen. it’s the same with rap/hiphop. Now most white kids from the burbs may not relate on every level, but hell if they enjoy the music what the fuck does it matter? Also, someones skin color has nothing to do with what they go through in life. If anyone thinks that, well they are being straight stereotypical, and ignorant as fuck. And lets be real, wasn’t basketball started by white folks? i dont hear any white folks saying “this is our game, give it back”. Why? Well, cause one can be good at it if they like it and if they practice hard. It’s for everyone.

    BOL, i remember the first time I stumbled on one of your blog. Don’t know what I googled, maybe 50 cent “the massacre”. Anyways, it takes time to get used to you. I was pissed when you made funny of africa peeps. I read your blog on a regular basis, not because of your opinion, but of the witty stuff you put in your writing. (d-bags, no homo etc). The classic moment was when you described in the XXL DVD, Paul Wall grillz maker partner in business as a “Myamar rebel dicator on the run”. That was hillarious to those who know what’s going on in that part of the world. In the end, do what you got to do!

  • Al Simmons


    Cool, I hear what you’re saying, but let me try and reiterate this again for you. If you don’t make people aware and respect the origins of ANYTHING, in this case Hip-hop, it leaves it open for others to come and change things to make it beneficial to them. This happens all the time

    Example (You sound like an intelligent person, maybe, but anyways)

    Ancient Egyptians where as Black as Whoppi Goldbergs lips! But so many false images, text and perceptions has been put in peoples minds that I’m sure if anyone were to read this post, they might be dubious to this claim, which I know is a fact.

    Now I’m not here to give a history lesson, but throughout history black people have been screwed over, written out and misrepresented in history by others!

    If this were to happen to Hip-hop in the future I bet all those who remember this post (unlikely) will say “Damn he was right”.

    Don’t get me wrong I personally like various genres of music. But what you have to understand is when you take away something which is synonymously associated with a certain culture you can fuck it up as you please. If your black and you go to an event where you’re the minority, they let you know about. We don’t do that shit to other people but we always get it. Why? Cos they let you know. I’m just letting you know. Ya get me?

    And if you want to get into origins of shit, remember there are different connotations with more or less everything

    You said

    “And lets be real, wasn’t basketball started by white folks? i dont hear any white folks saying “this is our game, give it back”.


    Rap> primarily, constructed using the English language > English > a mixture of German, Latin, French (and who ever else invaded)

    Oh my God! Hip-Hop was started by Germans! Think about it.

  • gettohellsoon

    @Al Simmons
    The rap vs. english language theory is way off base, and very very far streached. But I’m sure you knew that, and as cleaver as it was, it did not prove your point. Which at that point wasnt very clear. Well, not gonna argue with you about ancient egypt, cause well, I haven’t really seen any photos of ancient egyptians, and I probably won’t for a long time. Man, I see your issues, but your still of base. Black folks aren’t the only ones that get hated on when they are “out of place”. When whites or latino are the minority, it can happen too. It just depends on how many closed minded, ignorant assholes are there. Stupidity doesn’t have a color. Regardless of what you think, the very things you complain about can happen to all of us, regardless of race.
