mr.oneal black and whitLook here.. ya’ll gone deal with Mr. O’ Neal on this day by god!!  Shit it’s still the 80’s in the bamboobanga office.. We bump this nigga a few times a week.. NOVEMBER 15 is a HOLIDAY DAMNIT.. for this was the day .. a black boy by the name of Alexander was bought into the world….  Before there was Shaq .. we only gave a damn about this O’ NEAL..

Get a bar.. and don’t bring yo ass over here talmbout his teeth and dope problem.. HE IS WORKIN.. ON HIMSELF .. LOL..

We ain’t gone let you “CRITICIZE”  Mr. O’ Neal … hahaha..

Alexander O'Neal - Fake (12Inch) (1987) (NL)

This man soared under the production of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (The Time).. so yes .. he was yet another brick in the Minneapolis Music  Machine.. (so thank Father Prince) although he is a country boy from Mississippi.    He shined (both aesthetically and theoretically) ahem..  and teamed up many times with our girl Cherelle for classics like Innocent, Saturday Love, and Never Knew Love Like This… they were our Captain and Tenille, our Elton John and KiKi Dee if you will.. ENOUGH TALKIN.. get out your best cha cha shoes.. and let’s get to steppin!!!!!!


We gone start it off with one of my favorites… “SUNSHINE” This is a live performance for The Prince’s Trust in 1989.. yess they was rockin with our boy IN EUROPE AND WHATNOT.. Ya’ll better understand the crystal clearness of this man’s vocal’s before the yayo ravaged those vocal chords.. DAMNIT SANG IT MR O’NEAL!!!

Get a load of these 80’s coifs and ensembles children!!!!

It’s that time boys and girls.. Here is the part where we let you guys know .. what we have packed our bowls with this week.. Let me preface this by saying that although we clown about the good herb.. We use it for medicinal purposes.. We take herb seriously .. we are not just “trying to get fucked up” or whatever.. We believe in the enrichment of sick peoples lives through the ingestion and/or inhalation of cannabis.. It’s Magic.. This column is meant to break down different strains to the untrained. We also just want to share the effects of what we smoke with fellow tokers and put you on and/or offer critiques of some LA’s premiere Medical Dispensaries.. We are not here to promote.. or influence.. We are just sharing … educating , and supporting our right to blow trees ………. mmmmkay .. Also enjoy the visual of Lil Kim rollin up for her dude.. LOL.. *Girl you know you hit that blunt * hahahaha  *ALSO..THESE ARE ACTUAL FLICKS.. WE SMOKE THIS.. LOL.. these are not saved from the internet my guys !!! IJS.. 

Let’s start with Lucifer’s Chest Hair.. Top Shelf Indica if you will..

Lucifer’s Chest Hair

This post is dedicated to some of our  herb purchased this week  from  DownTownPatients Group  .. this is one of the most popular dispensaries in Los Angeles.  We always get our meds there as we have discussed several times throughout this blog..   This is probably the dispensary I frequent the most as they cap at 50 FOR HIGH QUALITY.. and simply put have bomb ass nugs.   They also have a large inventory of trees .. from top shelf to the shit that looks like beef jerky .. lol.. whatever you smoke.. damnit they got it .. Anyway .. today I am off this Lucifer’s Chest Hair.. the high lingers and the taste is not as bitter as you might think.. the high is EXTREMELY HEAD HEAVY.. LOL.  not for the infant lung niggaz.. LOL.  Continue reading

Flaming Lips… Erykah Badu… Western Esotericism..

Yup ..this is the one you been hearing bout.. you get to see NayRocks FLAMING LIPS.. lol.. but the video is awesome.. I like this team..This offering comes courtesy of The Flaming Lips new project (released 4.21 Record Store Day )The Flaming Lips and HEADY FWENDS   featuring folks like Bon Iver, Ms. BAdu and KESHA???  ok still i dope project though.. lol.. I love The Flaming LIps.. and of course Ms. BAdu.. you already know.. Enjoy..


THIS JUST IN:  6/6/12 Turns out.. Ms. Badu and Nayrok did not appreciate the Flaming Lips (Western Esotercism)  video .. directed by Wayne CoYNE (Flaming Lips frontman.. but you know that don’t  you lol) .. It seems Ms Badu was promised various creative  additions to sheath some of the nakedness .. Hell Erykah didn’t even like the vocal rendering used for the song ..With that being said.. we will replace the video in a second.. I thought it was dope.. but if she is cool on it .. We will wait.. LESSON LEARNED.. GET YO ASS OVER HERE.. WHEN WE FIRST POST SHIT ..!!! THAT IS ALL .. LOL.  Read her detailed letter to Wayne :

@waynecoyne then… perhaps, next time u get an occasion to work with an artist who respects your mind/art, you should send at least a ROUGh version of the video u PLAN to release b4 u manipulate or compromise the artist’s brand by desperately releasing a poor excuse for shock and nudity that sends a convoluted message that passes as art( to some).
Even with Window Seat there was a method and thought process involved. I have not one need for publicity . I just love artistic dialogue . And just because an image is shocking does not make it art. Continue reading

This right here.. is crucial.. First he conquered with The Don .. and now this.. NAS IS NOT PLAYING!!!!!!

Once again , the man has done it.. Take a look into the soul of a brother trying to raise a daughter….while he struggles with his own shortcomings as an adult.. The end result though is an honest depiction of the pros and cons of modern parenting.  I respect this song a lot.. and I also appreciate how he actually placed a lot of his real life situations with his lovely daughter Destiny in both the song and video.. That’s rough ..but you gotta respect him.. HAT’S OFF.. NASIR..

A lot of  you niggaz don’t even acknowledge your seeds let alone the little princesses you have who could grow up to be queens if you would just take the time and show them what a real man is supposed to be.. Don’t you want your daughter to find a man in YOUR IMAGE.. or .. maybe you don’t.. SMH!!!!!!!!
