Blow Your Whistle

I was born and raised in Queens. You know what that makes me, the big homie? A native New Yorker. And as such, you root for the Knicks. The Knickerbockers. That’s the rule! Doesn’t matter who’s on the team or who’s the coach. It was fun in the 90’s.The battles with MJ. The slugfests with The Heat. But nowadays thanks to that punk Isiah, New York sports fans like myself are in pain and misery.

When I started making industry baller dough I fulfilled my dream and got season tickets for the Mets and The Knicks but then I was always too busy to go to the games anyway. Nowadays, I occasionally hit up Ticket Exchange (no comps for the kid. I got pride) and grab a front row seat to watch the opposition disrespect the Garden floor by running up double digit wins against our booty squad.

But to bring all this back to hip-hop, I got a solution for a city in need of a big lift. A big Boricua. That’s right, I nominate Fat Joe to become the next coach of the New York Knicks. Ck the resume. How many Rucker titles has he won? I was at game a few weeks ago when supposedly Isiah’s job was on the line (James Dolan doesn’t have the balls to pull the trigger) and I saw Fat Joe and his man Macho in their usual front row seats (when they’re not sunbathing in Miami). I watched Joe rise up and cheer loudly. Encourage players like Zack Randolph and Renaldo Blackman who came up to him personally throughout the game. He was the reason for the come-from-behind win. Not Zeke.

Now I know this sounds like some Whoopi Goldberg in Eddie shit. But I ain’t Rick Foxx and this idea rocks. Can you imagine Coach Crack in the locker room getting his Knute Rockne on and rallying the troops? Fuck Scott Skiles (and Scott Storch for that matter). Joe’s an MC, he’s used to being miked. BX’s finest could bring his peoples like Khaled in to keep the team’s swagger up. “Eddy Curry, you the best!” Say it with me, “We the best.”

Bet you we’d at least make the playoffs. Play-offs. (Word to Jim Mora.) The publicity would be crazy and would keep the seats filled which is the only reason the owner James Dolan keeps this Isiah circus running in the first place. A lil taste of rap just might be the antidote to all our problems. It usually is.

Sidebar: And if Joe got his flirt on with a team executive or two, they won’t tell. Ha! LMAO!

    Whoa, Knicks AND Mets, YN? Okay, I take back all that bad shit I said about you back in 2006.

    That’d be a great idea, actually.

    LOL @ DJ Khaled. One of his super-bombastic (no shaggy) introductions right after the starting lineups are announced? Sheeeit. They could play the beginning of “Brown Paper Bag” right before tip-off (no bris)!

    That might actually get me to support my Knicks again.

    FIRE ISIAH! FUCK JAMES DOLAN! [||] = The Future

    Fuck tha Mets Go Mavs and the Big Homie Avery Johnson

  • K_Lang

    On team full of ghetto *ss n*ggas like the Knicks got, he would be a good fit. He couldnt get on the floor and practice with them but I think he could make a couple threats to help them to a win. Y’know NBA players wanna be rappers so he can offer them a cameo in one of his videos. That would be the highest injury ridden season in the NBA, like one of those Above the Rim moments. One play and LeBron’s career would be over. LOL!!

  • Thomas

    Why Jay not promoting other artist at Def Jam such as Free, Beans, Ghost? You know the big Homie. Talk. What’s up? Who’s your top 5 MC’s and why? Top 5 albums of all time, why? Top 5 verses of all time, each region, why? Now those are some questions.

    Dear YN, I don’t think you are using this websites CD Review section to its full potential. Instead of us having to wait a month after a cd drops to get a cd review(what’s up with that?) you could post the review there so that we will know if the cd is good while it is still relevant(Curtis, anyone?).

    “Go Mavs and the Big Homie Avery Johnson”

    used to love the Mavs but Avery can’t shake no-heart-having Dirk. and so the mavs are unwatchable, even with J. Howard.

    GSW just went up over the wack-ass Nets — with no-heart-having VC. BDavis rules. Like Quik says: Born and raised in Compton.

    “eddy curry we the best!!!!” classic

  • Bang

    You gotta touch on why the industry cant sell records anymore and what are they gonna do. Its sick now, but sales are low and everybody is going to download shit form now on.

    I actually detest rappers cus they really started losing talent and rapping about money too much instead of relying on actual skills or real street knowledge, but whatever, whatever
