|"I know Big Momma is cursing & crying right now bruh!"|
The old timers would always say, “A hard head makes a soft bottom!” Big Momma would give it to us like this, “Y’all don’t believe that fat meat is greasy!” The old pimps in the hood would break it down where boyz could understand it, “Once you bump your head enough in these streets you’ll figure it out.”
Well it looks like the Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu, has bumped his head enough in Baton Rouge and still hasn’t figured it out! On Thursday he and three other former LSU players including former quarterback Jordan Jefferson were arrested of drug charges. Mathieu, Jefferson and Karnell Hatcher were charged with simple possession of marijuana while Derrick Bryant was charged with possession with intent to distribute.
The police were called to Mathieu’s apartment after a man, who later turned out to be Jordan Jefferson, forced his way into the security gate. When the Honey Badger answered the door the cops smelled a strong odor of weed! When asked by the police if they could come in the Badger agreed. Stop right there bruh! First of all, why are you still smoking weed and your football future has already been compromised? Boyz aren’t trying to mess with you like that anymore anyway because of your recent problems. So why not do what you're supposed to do? I guess making a living playing a sport that you’ve been playing for free isn’t appealing to you huh?
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! If you know you’re up in the joint “wrong” why are you answering the door? Secondly, why would you give them permission to search the joint when you’ve got a marijuana grinder, a digital scale and 10 bags of high grade marijuana, including 7 in Bryant’s backpack? Let’s be honest pimpin', these boyz aren’t just smoking weed!
The police were being generous to Jordan Jefferson and the Honey Badger on those dull simple possession charges. How is Bryant the only cat charged with possession with intent to distribute for having 7 bags in his backpack and the Badger has all of that in his crib? They aren’t about to smoke 17 bags of weed unless Snoop and Wiz Khalifa are coming through and they'll still need Cheech & Chong to come in and bat clean up.
Let me be as clear as Vodka on this. A boy with a drug problem doesn't need to measure it to use it. He’s gettin’ his small scale campus connection Nino Brown on and his joint was the Carter! I was just waiting for Pookie to come running out of the back of the joint.
I know you’re asking yourself why is Jordan Jefferson still in Baton Rouge? It’s like this bruh, he still wants to be relevant and being on that campus is the only place in the world that he is. His football career is over and he’s afraid to go out into the real world and be a normal cat. So he’ll hang around LSU until boyz get too young to know who he is. Then he’ll be that dude that used to play ball there. We’ve seen it happen a million times over. I graduated from college 22 years ago and from time to time when I go back to the yard some dun that used to be the man is still hanging around trying to be relevant. That’s Jordan Jefferson and soon to be Tyrann Mathieu! So dull!
Normally I try to give some insight as to why a boy made the decision’s that got them into trouble but I’ve got nothing for you on this one bruh! These cats are old enough to know better. They can’t say that they don’t know any better or that the hood made them do it because they’ve been in the program for 3 or 4 years and have even completed their eligibility. So they've been around enough coaches, administrators and faculty that have given them the blueprint for success! If nothing else just turn on some Jay-Z because he'll break it down in hood terms!
So whatever the hood gave you are instincts but you’re old enough to understand what is acceptable and what isn’t. No more excuses! This is grown man business now! Like Uncle Willie at barber shop used to say, “You made your bed, now you gotta sleep in it homeboy!”
