    Show was better then I expected

    I like how everything is so over the top and flamboyant and how the djs, graffiti artists are being built up to be these mythical beings. A lot of what makes hip hop culture great

    Zeek, Jimmy smits, shaolin have really embodied their characters

    The music was lit

    Shaolin is fine

    Oddly enough I'm alil attracted to Cadillac... Bruh is a coke head and can be a fuck up... but i like his style

    Jaden Smith's acting leaves a lot to be desired. He got better as the season went on

    Lol @ Zeeks introduction to punk. It was kinda cliche. And alil random. But the show tag line is it's a coming-of-age romance about two Bronx teens growing up during the rise of hip- hop, disco and punk in 1977...so I wonder if the daughter will be our punk conduit as the series goes on

    Like how Zeek kept his integrity and didn't let ed kochs man lead him to far astray

    The dj battle in ep 6 was lit. Boo stole the show

    Can't wait for prt 2...

    Wonder how long the show will last...it is one of the most expensive tv shows netflix has produced and the reviews haven't been all that favorable

    He damn sure did...like he knew walking on the set that day "I gotta kill the MJ part" lol...I feel like him and Zeke are gonna be the 2 who take music the most serious out the crew

    Yea I can see that

    Feel like the oldest brother will get into the management side of things

    I dunno about Diz lol

    Does it bother another else watching scenes like when the teacher basically asked Zeek if he wants to be a field nigga and know that it was more then likely conjured up by a group of white men sitting around a table in Manhattan, LA somewhere sipping Star Bucks

    It's nothing new and the writing has been good, just makes u think

    Yea that bothered me... cuz the opposite of a field nigga is a house nigga and that's still within the realm of "slave mentality"... I'd feel like the teacher would be smarter than that... I'd have to watch that scene over again because I'm paraphrasing...

    I may have been mistaken she may have said 'slave mentality' rather then 'field slave'

    This might be the biggest and best thing to happen under Obama.

    Nah just another accomplishment on the low.....

    and like with the 100:1 crack sentencing laws this is federal, the state laws still have to change. Just another reason people need to be voting in off Presidential years for state offices because Republicans have dominated state legislatures umder Obama

    cosign

    at the same time, i think we underestimate the impact redistricting and the money in politics has on local, state elections

    these politicians say one thing and end up reneging...and/or line-drawing protects the incumbents...undermining the whole political process

    there's just too much money involved

    Olympics communications director Mario Andrada on whether Ryan Lochte and the other 3 US swimmers should apologize: "No apologies are needed from the athletes. This case they were having fun--training under pressure. I understand they are under investigation. Cannot go much further. Give these kids a break, sometimes we make actions that we later regret. They had fun. They made a mistake. Life goes on."

    But let this be a black Olympian their a$$ will be burned like a witch at the Sakem Witch Trials

    right

    they were drunk

    vandalized a bathroom

    and left the scene of the crime after trying to bribe the security guard attendant

    that is worth an apology at the very least

    and these men were in their late twenties, early thirties....they aren't kids
