    The Heat's big 3. We haven't seen the Warriors big 3 yet (KLAY, Steph and KD), the Celtics had success but I felt they should've won more titles, the Cavs don't have a big 3, they have a dope duo of James and Irving.

    5th Letter- Who are your favorite and least favorite posters?

    Turfaholic- Man it's so many posters that's solid and funny as fuck....

    My favorite
    Ima start with the 2 I've personally met. That's Harlemthumbzup & Stew. Just on the strength they came to Vegas and fucked with me on some face to face shit. Wasn't afraid, and they really out here enjoying life. That nigga Stew a real deal scumbag though. Couldn't tell if he was setting me up to get robbed or nah. I wouldn't leave that nigga around my momma too long. He's solid, but real deal scumbag lol. Then ima go to my (now defunct) xbox1 squad. Eyerone, Abraxas, & Khaleesi. Eyerone had a nigga gain a solid 7 pounds in a week with the dominoes diet. Abraxas the type of nigga to help you with homework, help you find peace with God, then rob you right after. Khaleesi damn near ended my relationship but she still fam. My Bay Area fam
    Menace, vapors, trillfate, the real b .a., and baron samedi. Busta Charmichael, comedy. T. Sanford, comedy. Blackgod, comedy. Du, comedy.GEE, we went to war behind that White Girl Mob vs MMG shit, but I couldn't hate when he spoke the truth. Me and Cain beefed, but I respect his O.G. Can't think of anybody else by name at the moment, but if I ever gave you a goat, lol, ether, or cosign. I fucks withchu.

    Least favorite
    Man I think everybody knows G.R.I.P. Money is my son. The Reason has been a much more enjoyable place to post since he stopped posting that shit he called music. I'd rather listen to a dog that just had one of his legs blown off with a double barrel shotgun than his shit. Hey G.R.I.P. I know you're reading this, do your father a favor and kill yourself.
    There's a new nigga who hopped on my radar. This nigga TonyDubbz. I only really remember dude from the GTA thread. But he said some shit about my opinion on hip hop don't matter because I enjoyed Kreayshawn music. Hey TonyDubbz, I know you're reading this. I saw that your Uncle recently had a stroke. I won't wish death on nobody, but I hope that nigga is cursed with the Good Ol Jim Ross face until he croaks.
    Supergangster is another one of my son's. But picking on the handicapped is not acceptable.

    5th Letter- Why are they your least favorite posters?

    Turfaholic- TinyDubbz posted some shit last week like "I sonned Turfahlolic in 4 threads". Nigga I didn't even realize you posted in The Reason. How you son a nigga who barely acknowledges your existence? I hope that nigga jumps off a cliff into shark infested waters. I forgot what L.I.M.P. Money did to get under my skin. Shit was so many years ago. He still says slick shit here and there. So I made it a goal to shit on him every time we wake up to a blue sky. Superwankster just annoys the fuck out of me. But after TinyDubbz said my opinion in The Reason is invalid, I might retire L.I.M.P. Money. I should've stopped being mad at that nigga once he stopped posting his music. Disrespecting my knowledge of this thing we call hip-hop can be futile.

    5th Letter- What are some things you'd like to change about the IC?

    Turfaholic- The layout. Time for a upgrade. Y'all should be more strict on the annoying trolls. Some of them add comedy to the IC. Others are just flatout pointless. Thread killers. Shady should've been permabanned. Other than that, the IC is a great place. Most definitely a great way to past time while at work.

    5th Letter- Word association 2 words or less

    5th Letter- Mac Dre
    Turfaholic- Forever King

    5th Letter- E 40
    Turfaholic- The Blueprint

    5th Letter- Biggie
    Turfaholic- hella potential

    5th Letter- Peezy Jenkins
    Turfaholic- born loser lol

    5th Letter-Any last words before we wrap up?

    Turfaholic- Not on no conspiracy theory shit, but the New World Order is a real thing folks. Every day they're passing laws to implement it tough here in the United States. The news media is creating a divide between the different cultures in these states. But when its all said and done, the government is going to be after all our asses. White, Black, Arab, Asian. I urge that you educate yourself and others. If you're black, educate others with knowledge and back it up with facts, not hate. If you're white, you're here on this forum because you have a interest in African culture. I urge that you look into our struggles deeper than a hashtag. I also urge you white folks to educate your friends and family. We have concentration camps right here in America waiting to be filled, wait they already are. They're called private prisons now. Police don't police to protect now. Many of them police to meet a quota. If they don't meet that quota, they don't get that juicy bonus. Back in May, Obama passed a law known as "Blue Alert" to protect police. Even though we've been protesting police brutality heavy the past few years, the police are the ones getting more protection. Wake up or stay woke. I don't care if you're left wing or right wing, it's the same damn bird. These things we call social media and the internet can be powerful tools to use against us or in our favor. Look up Agenda 2030. Everything thats causing cancer is apart of population control.

  • Re: Reason Interview: Turfaholic

    5th Letter- What's your opinion on today's hip hop?

    Turfaholic- Commercially it's in bad shape. We got Kendrick, Cole, & Sean. Then we got The Super Friends making one long track about being junkies. When did being a Junkie become the cool thing to do? Future and The Weekend remind me of Pookie. Zannys and Lean. Everything sounds the same. Beats. Flow. People thought 08 was a bad year, but atleast Souljah Boy threw a "Kiss Me Through The Phone" into the mix. Then it's like, the artist who want to get on are forced to make music that sounds like The Super Friends music. That song "Uber Everywhere" is a perfect example. The machine have Desiigner a #1 song in the country. How did we as a culture allow a biter, (remember that term from the 90s?) To have a number 1 track in the whole country? Shits bonkers. I hope Khaled gets deported soon. He turned the genre into a Kwik E Mart. Thank God the Bay Area put me onto independent music and how to find it. Its so much dope shit shot in the underground right now that would put iheart radio out of business.

    5th Letter- How did you discover the IC?

    Turfaholic- Like everybody else..... Illseed. Like a week after Stillmatic dropped. I googled "Why did Nas make Ether?" And it took me to the rumor page. I lurked for a minute. I had two other profiles but I forgot the passwords and even the usernames. Turfy seemed to be the that stuck..

    5th Letter- How long have you been on the IC?

    Turfaholic- Since 01, I lurked like 5 years before I signed up

    5th Letter- What took so long?

    Turfaholic- Didn't really see a need to sign up. Until I saw something I couldn't help but respond to.

    5th Letter-Do you remember what it was? And what were your early memories of the IC?

    Turfaholic- Lol, I think it was something Bay Area related. I got in my feelings and had to gear up and represent the soil. The earliest memory I have of the IC is probably the Eagle Grease thread. Seem like not too many people remember that thread. It was a FOF thread before they came and crushed the buildings. That's the thread I think I planted my flag and said "Turfy's here". Outside of that I remember always talking shit to you, H- Rap, & Cain. Lol. I was a young man trying to make a name and earn stripes on a message board lol.

    5th Letter-What are some of the craziest things you've seen since you've been on the IC?

    Turfaholic- Been so much comedy lol. Chuck and Pico exposing niggas who was sending them checks and risking it all for some IC pussy. The Eagle Grease thread. I think the Eagle Grease roast was far worst than the Shenco roast. Shenco still here. That nigga Eagle Grease got roasted into oblivion. When that nigga Towers got exposed for being a petty thief. Watching Du go through some real nigga shit with his wife behind Khaleesi. He handled it well. Part 2 of the Playas thread is crazy. I went on date with a broad for IC entertainment lol. We all got a healthy laugh out of that.

    5th Letter- Speaking of that, youre a regular in the playas thread what's your favorite/craziest playa story(ies)?

    Turfaholic- Lol, I ain't a regular in there no more. My girl snatched me up and locked me down. I respect her for it though. One of the reasons I pulled her is because of the Playas thread. But my favorite story in there is mine lol. I went on that date with the bald headed chick with the big titty meats and the cast on her foot. I was on that date giving play by play analysis with pics and shit lol. I can look at that thread now and see my pursuit of my current girl. But that date with that bald headed chick will forever be a good inside joke.

  • Reason Interview: Turfaholic

    5th Letter- Where are you from?

    Turfaholic- Iight, I'm from Pittsburg, CA. A small town in the Bay Area. About 30 minutes East east of Oakland. 45 minutes East of San Francisco.

    5th Letter- What's life like out there?

    Turfaholic- Shits changed the 30 years I been on the planet. I used to see drug dealers wearing jerri curls shooting dice in the playgrounds as a kid. During my teens, all my friends were alcoholics and druggies. Now everybody is grown with kids of there own and trying to start up they own business. So you know, it comes with a little good and bad. The gentrification is real though. You can go to Wal-Mart and see a rich Asian, drive two blocks and got niggas asking you to give up the shoes on ya feet. Shit gets confusing at times.

    5th Letter- How did seeing that affect you growing up

    Turfaholic- Shit caused split personality issues low-key. Like, In the latest 80s, early 90s Pittsburg was hit hard by the crack epidemic. Our D- Boys were driving to Oakland to get that work. Wasn't no real competition in the city because the town was so small. Half the town was grimey and strung out, then you could drive 5 minutes away to uptown. Uptown is where everybody who had that old money from World War 2 and Vietnam lived. Shits a peaceful suburb. My mother eventually moved to uptown, while my father stayed in the grimey part. During the week I would be in the suburbs living peacefully with no worries. And during the weekend I would be in the hood with strung out Aunties and Uncles. So even today in my 30s there's always apart of me that wants to get married and do the right thing, work hard. Then there's always a part of me that just wants to do drugs, get drunk, and fuck random bitches with no condom.

    5th Letter- Did you get caught up in it?

    Turfaholic-I dibbled and dabbled in it. Nothing too serious. My father used to be in the game. But on the wrong end of it. I can laugh at it now, but some of my earliest memories of my dad are going to rehab and counseling with him. Lol. As a kid, the one thing my dad put emphasis on was "Never do crack son". Lol. So that lightweight kept me away from drugs. Selling or using. I started smoking weed in high school. I used to get lifted. This is when California started getting real Frankenstein with the weed. So I pushed a few eighths here and there. Enough for lunch money. Then the hyphy movement kicked in. My gawd the hyphy movement. Started popping extacy every weekend. For a good year. Extacy a bath/ shower with a woman is some goat shit. But once that phase was over I kinda chilled on the drug use.

    5th Letter- If you don't mind answering what do you do for a living?

    Turfaholic- I do security. Last year I was doing security for hotels on the Las Vegas strip. Now I'm doing security in the projects.

    5th Letter- How is that like?

    Turfaholic- It's coo. I've met alot allot of celebrities and gotten into alot of events for free working security on the strip. Got into the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight for free. Billboard awards. EDC. All kinda shit. That Mayweather/ Pacquiao fight brought the bitches from all over out though. Working in the projects isn't as fun, but it comes with a little more prestige and opens up the door to better opportunities. But I deal with bullshit like Mexican dumpster divers talking shit shit in Spanish. I hate that shit. I should've stayed my ass in school

    5th Letter- What made you move to Vegas?

    Turfaholic- I left the Bay to join the Army. I was too head strong for that shit. Plus I was a cook, so I was mostly in the kitchen and hardly got to know my unit. Didn't really adjust to people I didn't know having so much control over my life. So that shit didn't last long. Got booted out. Figured it was time to enjoy life a little bit. Left Texas and came to Vegas. But I want to thank God for NY though. Baddest bitch I smashed out here was from the LES. Bad Puerto Rican bitch. Crazy as fuck though. How yall niggas back east deal with that shit?

    5th Letter- How is life in Vegas?

    Turfaholic- Shits fantastic. There's always something to do. Females to smash. Drugs to do. Shows and concerts to attend. Police got me by the balls right now though. This place lacks culture though. I'm not really a gambler. Las Vegas is little California. So many people I went to school with moving out here. Getting ready to move into a luxury apartment next week. I love it here.

    5th Letter- What are your early memories of hip hop?

    Turfaholic- Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock "It Takes Two".That shit was a maaaaaajor vent as a kid. I used to spend alot of time with one of my older cousins. She was going through a domestic issue. Her and her boyfriends fighting reminded me of the guy and girl screaming on "It Takes Two". So I would just imagine that song to take me away from that bullshit. I was like 4 at the time. After that, Doggystyle dropping. I was 6. My introduction and understanding to the west coast music scene. It also helped spark my interest into 70's R&B.

    5th Letter- Who are your favorite and least favorite rappers?

    Turfaholic- My favorite rapper is Rydah J. Klyde. He's my hometown hero. He signed to Mac Dre before the hyphy movement really jumped off. One of the original guys signed to Thizz Ent. A guy Mac Dre was really rocking with tough before he got murdered. But I'm sure y'all have no clue who that is, so ima say my favorite commercial rapper is Snoop. His flow on Doggystyle is the smoothest flow I've heard in the genre.

    5th Letter- What are your favorite albums?

    Turfaholic- Good question.... they change with the seasons.
    My number 1 will always be 400 Degreez. Mannie Fresh production was crazy. Juvie penned a very versatile album. Remaining 4 in no particular order. Doggystyle, Love Below/ Speakerboxxx, Get Rich Or Die Trying, & R&G Rhythm & Gangsta.

    5th Letter- Bay Area hip hop is an acquired taste what's your thoughts on people's disparaging remarks about your areas hip hop?

    Turfaholic- It is what it is. We been dealing with it for awhile now. Most people give props to Mac Mall, Spice-1, Too $hort, and some times Uncle Earl. When the West was on top in the 90s the Bay area music scene only outlet to the world was only Jive and they didn't have clout like Ruthless and Death Row in L.A. so we didn't really get to shine that much. Pac died and besides Dre & Snoop the West went quiet. The Bay developed it's its own sound, but only Uncle Earl was the only one who was able to bring it to the masses. Mac Dre died, then magazines and MTVs came around. That's was during when all the Mac Dre clones was dropping 1,000 song a day. So people had to filter through the bullshit. So I understand. But I also have the vision to see our style was heavily bitten. California really started it's comeback with the Nu Boyz. That "You're a Jerk" song. Them were two L.A. kids making music to Bay Area sounding beats. So it went from being bitter to just recognizing that no matter what, we got a grasp on the culture. DJ Mustard got on using Bay Area sounding beats. Iggy Azealia hopped in the game using a Bay Area sounding beat. That "Fancy" song? Yeah that's a Bay Area beat. Even on the IC. Peezy Jenkins.....Peezy? That's Bay Area lingo. Mdizzle? Izzle? That's Bay Lingo. H to the Izzo, V to the izzay....bay lingo. So we here. Made or impression on The culture quietly. For the record, Drake sampled Too $hort on his new hit "For Free".
