Entering a world of pain

You guys know I don’t really follow sports like that. When somebody told me, yesterday, that Eddie Curry’s baby mother and her kid had been killed, I thought they were talking about the ninja from Family Matters.

Turns out it was that same guy from the New York Knicks who’d been accused of sexually harassing his limo driver, whom I’m only familiar with because that had been discussed on the Howard Stern Show.

It was only when I read, just now, that this took place in Chicago that I put 1 and 2 together. Could this be yet another case of a black celebrity from Chicago being extorted by the awful gangs there?

Keep in mind that this is all speculation. I hardly know anything about this case. And I couldn’t pick Eddie Curry out of a lineup, unless the rest of the people in the lineup were mad short and/or white. I only read about this shit over at Sandra Rose, and they’re only running a picture of the condo where it took place.

But I do happen to know that there’s been a lot of rumors and speculation over the years re: celebs from the Chi being extorted by gangs there. I’ve received emails informing me that Lupe Fiasco used to run heroin for them; that, when Kanye got his face all busted up, as seen in the “Through the Wire” video, it wasn’t from the car wreck he was in, but rather from a beatdown he received from them; and that they were somehow involved in that case where that pharmaceutical rep went missing, which I know involved another basketball player I’m not as familiar with.

And there’s a striking similarity between the killings this weekend, and the killing of Jennifer Hudson’s family, which also took place in the Chi, and which I also speculated may have had something to do with the gang problem there. Hmm…

The Jennifer Hudson case I’m actually not as certain about. It could be that it was just a matter of the guy her sister was dating having spent time in the joint and having emerged kinda batty, a la Saigon. (But not that kind of batty, I think…) You know her sister suffers from weight issues, even relative to Jennifer Hudson herself, and hence is more likely to take up with an ex-con. (If only there was a such thing as an attractive girl ex-con.) You ever go to a Wal-Mart on a Saturday afternoon, see a 600 pound woman with a baby, and wonder how that happened? I rest on your face.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Eddie Curry case, meanwhile, was a matter of plain ol’ extortion. Two dead giveaways:

1) They killed the girl and her baby, but they let Eddie Curry’s son live. He was found standing over his dead mother trying to wake her up. Which reminded me of some of the back story from the show Dexter[1]. If this was the case of a psycho ex-con flipping out on his low expectations babymama, he probably would have killed Eddie Curry’s son, too. The fact that they let the boy live lets me know this was just a warning. Curry’s still got time to come up with the money, before they kill someone who’s actually close to him. (The fact that his son might grow up to be a closet case serial killer is just collateral damage.) If anything, they might have done him a favor by offing his baby’s mother. I know it’s insensitive to say, especially at a time like this, but think of how much money he’s gonna save now that he’s only got a son to support, and not the poor kid’s mother, and her other kid, and the ex-con she’s supporting, and so on and so forth.

2) How in the fuck is some shit like this gonna happen to Eddie Curry a mere matter of days after he was accused of sexually harassing his limo driver? That limo driver shit reeked to me of extortion even before his baby’s mother turned up dead with his son standing over her. I just figured it was a matter of the limo driver trying to pull a fast one, aware of how much money he could make from one of these ball players, who can’t afford to be viewed as a fudge. (Sandra Rose had a picture the other day of a couple of NBA dudes who looked pretty moist, which would lead me to believe this problem is pretty widespread.) And I thought he might have also been a racist, at least on a subconscious level, and that this might have had something to do with the inauguration. I should have known this went way deeper than that. Think about it: If he’s white, and he’s that smart, what was he doing blogging driving a limo for a living?

What do you fruits think? Is Eddie Curry being extorted, or am I reading too much into this? If he is, should he go ahead and pay up, since they took care of his baby’s mother for him? Or should he go to the cops and reveal to them what’s been obvious to me for some time now? Or would that constitute snitching? Speak on it.

[1] Did you know that the guy who plays Dexter is married to the girl who plays his sister on the show, i.e. like the fifth most attractive woman evar? I’m not sure if I’m gonna be able to watch that show anymore.

    You’re reading too much into it Bol. It was already reported that the baby mama was being stalked by some nut she use to date or whathaveyou. That shit happens everyday. The fact that its Eddie Currys folk (and a kid) makes it national news. And suggesting that he’d save money because of this may be true, but terribly insensitive.

    • http://xxlmag.com Bol

      If that’s the case, then why’d he let Eddie’s kid live?

      • giantstepp

        Good point Bol. I forgot about the other kid.

      • FlapJack

        It’s rediculous. could be a million reasons. maybe lil dude was smart enough to hide?

  • anonymous

    You are on to something and for that very reason I wouldn’t be surprised if this post magically disappears for being “insensitive.”

  • What the ?

    Bol, stop fronting like you don’t know who Eddie Curry is, anyone who watched NBA last couple years knows him he’s a good player.

    I think your looking to far into this, just a bunch of retarded goons out in Chi that do shit before they think or just don’t think ? RIP to the woman and little kid.

  • General

    I think you are dead on. The first thing I thought when I saw this on the news was that either she had something to do with this whole limo driver deal, in which case Eddy had her murked or this was another shake down by the gangs. The fact that his son was allowed to live while the mother and daughter were killed makes either a possibility.

  • General

    BTW, it also makes it hard for me to watch Dexter anymore either now that the brother and sister on the show are married in real life, just don’t seem right

  • Matt Herbz

    Reminds me of this one time I was at the pad just chillin, you know, and my iPhone started ringing. I picked it up and some dude was talking through one of them little deals that disguises your voice. He said he had my “wife” on the line and that if I didn’t deliver some money to a specific location, they’d off the bitch. They even passed the phone to her and she was all like “Baby, please, give these niggaz what they want…baby, they about to kill me!” I thought shit was humorous because I ain’t got no damn wife, so I warmed up the bulletproof S600 and drove over to the address. This hoodrat looking bitch and some scrawny looking dude were out standing on the curb so I just rolled up, lowered the window and popped off into dudes stomach with the sawed-off double-barrel joint, spraying blood and guts all over honey. She starts screaming and turned to run away, so I threw my shit in reverse and backed over that ho and then pulled forward and hit her once more for good measure.

    There have been no strange phone calls since…

    Eddy’s son was not killed. That was his baby momma but her daughter(not related to Eddy) was shot. Eddy’s 3 year old son was there and witnessed the murders or was found trying to wake his dead mom up covered in blood.

  • geico lizard

    She had a restraining order against her ex so they may charge him like they charged jenn hudson sisters ex but they both seem too obvious to be guilty. Cops like to wrap up these high profile murders(unless they are rappers) to get the press off their ass, so they will lock up an innocent guy as long as he has a prior felony.

    The only reason a crazy ex would leave the son alive is if he thought the kid wasnt at home. A gang would leave eddys kid alive as a message just like Bol said.

    Eddy Curry is a slow,lazy,fat bum he makes Will Perdue look like a hall of famer. The only reason he is in the league is because of his height.

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Family is most important. U fuxx with them and it’ a problem. Everybody’s gotta go, but fuckin with the fam, today might be your day. Fuck all that money and celebrity bullshit. This is real life……..”Everybody wan heaven but nobody wan dead.” Fear no man and remember, you only live once and your not coming back!!! Word to my dead mother!!

  • $ykotic

    Honestly, it reeks of the ex doing it ’cause of the OOP(order of protection). But the limo driver would know where they stay though.

    Prayers go out to that woman’s family.


    ” I know it’s insensitive to say, especially at a time like this, but think of how much money he’s gonna save now that he’s only got a son to support, and not the poor kid’s mother, and her other kid, and the ex-con she’s supporting, and so on and so forth.” man bol thats some fucked up thinking but fuck. i can’t even be mad at it because it’s so true

  • sealsaa

    I disagree. The mother I understand, but why kill the 9 month old, and not the 3 year old? You left one witness alive. What the hell was the 9 month old going to say? Was the 9 month old Curry’s baby? Seems more likely that he had something to do with it, or someone wanted to make it look that way.

  • amar

    hey bol, do you think obama maybe ran for president because the chicago gangs told him if he doesn’t, they’d expose his love affair with one of the williams tennis sisters to the public? perhaps the reason michael jordan was drafted by the chicago bulls was because the chicago gangs told the tis at the nba if they don’t let chicago have him, they’ll cut off karl malone’s left hand, thus preventing him from being the best mailman he could possibly be? What about Oprah? Is she rich because she’s a head of the chicago gangs and is laundering money via her allegedly popular show? Is that why jenny jones vanished from the face of the earth (who’s show also happened to be based in chicago)?

    this post sucks. you suck for writing it bol. don’t joke about shit like this.

  • miles archer

    Bol, you were all over the place with this one.

    And why is Matt Herbz biting G-Unot Killa’s whole style????????????

    • Worley

      Both of them work for XXL. They might even be the same person.

  • Enlightened

    Because he probably is G-Unot Killa

  • http://xxl All Dae

    Holy Sh*t

    Matt Herbz is suspect….like he came out of nowhere on some G-Unot Killa demo. He wants us to know like he about to explode if we don’t see how clever he is. Wow

  • Moi

    bol, what the f*ck is wrong with you? that woman from dexter is not attractive. she is damn near anorexic. unless its her trust issues and lingering insecurities that attract you . . . you’re witty enough to exploit that. that aside, i thought for sure her and dokes would end up together or he’d at least hit it. now there was a G.

    anyone make any rap records lately?

  • amar

    not to take sides here, but matt herbz has been doing that stupid shit since before g unot killa posted his very first comment

    speaking o fwhich, i haven’t read a gunot killa comment in a while…i wonder if he’s incarcerated or dead…hopefully they at least didn’t get c-loc or spider crip lol

  • PH

    Bol, you need to update this post, the little girl WAS Curry’s daughter.

    Rest in Peace.

    damn, Bol, I hope whenever the day comes you get caught up in it, you don’t look for any sympathy. Hope you real clever then too.
