Aspiring Rappers Take Note:
Chance the Rapper won a Best New Artist Grammy last Sunday — but he doesn’t have, or need, a record label.
An insider said: “Every label is still trying to get him. He’s making too much on his own … He was turning down $5 million advances before, and now it’s like $10 million.” The source added, “He may do something with Apple, but not a label per se … He is going to remain independent.”
This way, Chance maintains complete control and ownership of his career.
Those multi million dollar advances would have to be paid back and would be deducted from his future earnings.
A short lived backdoor to the iphone operating system was offered for sell on the internet for $1 million dollars. The listing disappeared after 24 hours.
Military secrets, industrial secrets are also for sell.
Knowledge of overseas networks is also in demand. Buyers offer a list of 20+ overseas servers to be targeted. The seller is sent money after each assignment.
A doctor recently got arrested for selling the identities of dead babies which provided criminals with new identities.
Selling cell phone interceptor and tracking equipment is big business as well as intelligence gathering and high speed code cracking.
The hitman network was offering the following deal: "Tell others about our network and earn 1% from every purchase."
Black Hollywood Conspiracy Theory:
An unfounded rumor circulated a few months ago that Ivory P. (rapper, alleged human trafficker and alleged murderer) may have known something about Pimp C's death; it's doubtful that he knew anything. He was later killed in a shootout with police.
Ivory P, a rapper once affiliated with the Pimp C-founded UGK Records, was arrested on human trafficking and simple kidnapping charges following an incident, which took place earlier this week. The Houston Chronicle reports that Ivory P, real name Ivory Charles Pantallion III, was arrested along with his 24-year-old companion, Jessica Lynne Morgan, when a 19-year-old woman traveling with the pair phoned her mother after “fearing for her life.”
According to the Huntsville, Alabama teenager, her phone was taken while she was with Ivory P and Morgan who also went on to place an escort profile for the 19-year-old on various Websites.
“Once they arrived in Beaumont, the victim’s phone was taken away and she was given a prepaid phone,” said Lake Charles deputy chief Mark Kraus, according to the Houston Chronicle. “The victim was shown her personal web page on an internet site advertising her as an escort and was told she would provide escort services for men. After one night in Beaumont, the victim and suspects traveled to Lake Charles. Once in (Lake Charles), the suspects established another personal web page advertising the victim as an escort in the Lake Charles area.”
After the victim reached out to her mother with her location, authorities were able to locate the 19-year-old and both Ivory P and Morgan. Ivory P was subsequently jailed on $1 million bond while Morgan’s bond was set at half that amount.
Following Pimp C’s death in 2007, UGK Records was placed on hold indefinitely.
Recently: Rapper Ivory P, who was a former affiliate of Pimp C’s UGK Records label, was shot and killed by police in Baytown, Texas, following a police chase that stretched into three counties.
Police tried to stop Ivory P’s black Mercedes-Benz SUV but the vehicle sped away. That’s when the police chase ensued.
Deputies in neighboring Chambers and Baytown counties, as well as the Department of Public Safety troopers, joined the 30-minute chase. Police laid down spike strips to stop the vehicle but Ivory P was able to drive around them. The chase ended when police performed a PIT maneuver and the SUV crashed into the bushes.
However, when Ivory P exited the vehicle, he reportedly exchanged gunfire with police and was subsequently shot and killed. A DPS spokesman said that Ivory P showed a gun to deputies during the chase and again after the crash.
Following the shooting, reports have surfaced that Ivory P, whose real name is Ivory C. Pantallion III, may be connected to a homicide where a young woman was found shot to death inside a hotel room. The unidentified woman was found by staff.
Tyrese revealed on "Dish Nation," that Lee Daniels is bringing a Teddy Pendergrass biopic to the big screen and Tyrese will be cast as Pendergrass.
Support groups for women who allow their husbands or boyfriends to sleep with men are popular in Los Angeles. Similar to the story below:
“Lance” is a short haul truck driver, with a route that includes southern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
His job allows the brown-skinned, divorced father of two to (have sex with men) on the regular. In truck stops, in the cab of his semi, or in the houses of guys he hooks up with.
Lance, who was always curious about male genitalia but got his first taste in the military, is an insatiable bottom. He loves to get pounded for hours and even brings rope with him in his overnight bag so guys can tie him up and have their way with him.
Who is to say he won’t meet a mass murderer during his travels who will tie him up and knock him off. Lance doesn’t seem to care about danger as long as there is a promise of a stiff d*ck.
“I’m a flat out freak and I love it,” he says.
But Lance doesn’t fit the profile of a typical down-low brother because, well, he isn’t down-low. His current girlfriend, a white chick from rural Pennsylvania, knows all about his yen for bottoming.
In fact, she encourages him to go out and satisfy his cravings, as long he comes home and gives her all the details, including how big was the d*ck, how the black man looked and how did the d*ck feel feel.
Evidently this must get her excited — he claims they still have an active sex life.

Kim Weston did a stint as a radio personality at WCHB. She later did a stint at WHND AM 56 Honey Radio. Very little information is available about these two stages of her career.
Excerpt from her brief career:
Motown star . . . will spin classic pop tunes and conduct celebrity interviews with old friends like Smokey Robinson. Her show debuts 7-10 tonight at 560 on the AM brand. . . .
Then a subsequent article from the Free Press on March 17, 1994 states: Why leave Detroit, a mecca of entertainment, and go somewhere else? in announcing her new syndicated variety program The Kim Weston Show. The answer is, because few Detroiters are interested.
Def Jam’s 2 Chainz and retired NBA star Allen Iverson don’t play when it comes to luxury drinks. The duo’s NBA All-Star Weekend club event riders, or list of demands, have surfaced online.
According to reports, Deuce demanded high-profile brands like Diddy’s Ciroc for his New Orleans club event.
2 Chainz demands 4 bottles of Ace of Spades, 3 bottles of Dom Perignon and 3 bottles of Ciroc, different flavors. BTW, his Dom MUST have the glow-in-the-dark label. Big boy toys. AI is less picky — he wants 3 bottles of vodka, and only says nothing cheap … “has to be top-shelf.” He does, however, specify 6 bottles of Moet Rosé champagne, 3 bottles of Hennessy and Patron, 12 Coronas and a 12-pack of Fiji water. Oh yeah, 10 hand towels too.

(OVEN ROASTED ROTISSERIE)
Make your own oven roasted rotisserie chicken with just a few simple ingredients! It's fall-off-the-bone tender and oh so flavorful!!!
1 (4-5 lb.) whole chicken, trussed
½ tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. smoked paprika
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. salt (I prefer Morton's Iodized Sea Salt)
¾ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. onion powder
¾ tsp. dried herbes de Provence
Preheat oven to 250 degrees, place rack in the lower-middle position.
Heat 2 cups of water in the microwave for 3 minutes. Place in the corner of the oven.
Place the trussed chicken into a skillet, baking dish or roasting pan, make sure there's enough room around the chicken so that nothing drips out, and that it is deep enough to catch the juices.
Rub the melted butter on the skin. In a small mixing bowl combine the seasonings and spices, then rub on the buttered skin. You can gently lift up on the skin around the breasts and rub some seasoning under there too.
Place in the oven and bake for 3-4 hours (depending on the size of the chicken), basting twice during that time. Remove when a thermometer inserted into the thigh reaches 160 degrees. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before transferring to a cutting board and carving.
Serve with a side of mashed potatoes.
For a slow cooker: cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.

David is a kept boy. This year, he’ll collect $100,000 from two much older male sponsors who pay him for sex and companionship.
It’s a thriving underground industry, David says. And he’s far from alone in taking care of business. Rich, closeted gay men—in La Jolla and moneyed communities all over the world—pay big bucks to maintain discreet liaisons with younger (though legal age), pay-for-play boys.
The practice, many would say, differs only in degree from the straight-world version of older wealthy males collecting younger “trophy” wives or girlfriends. The difference: The mainstream has—fundamentally, if not wholeheartedly—embraced the latter as a socially acceptable inclination.
David (not his real name) lives in Hillcrest. The money he quietly receives via bank drafts goes in large part toward college tuition, he says. In addition to the money, David’s sugar daddies lavish him with gifts—like the Cartier watch draped on his wrist, the latest in computer hardware, and the furniture that adorns his home. And they wine and dine him at tony spots like the Hotel del Coronado and Le Meridien, or downtown’s La Strada and Fio’s.
Not bad for someone with no full-time job, per se. Especially since before becoming a trophy boy, David was a hooker. There’s a difference, he says.
He met both sponsors through online classified ads. “At the time, I was hooking. I’d been hooking for two years. Just four days after putting an ad in national classifieds I was in New York. Days later I was in Phoenix. I was flown out to places sight unseen—except for a small picture that ran with my ad. A $56 ad made me so much money. Both of my sponsors first called me strictly on a sexual basis, but then took a liking to me.”
Though he won’t name names, David says his benefactors are prominent and wealthy businessmen. “There are so many wealthy gay men who will pay for companionship from younger guys,” he says. “It’s a whole circuit. The people that do this are the most powerful in America. It’s unbelievable. It can be married men in high-level positions. Very, very wealthy men. To this day it still surprises me when my friends tell me who they’re sleeping with. Or when these men appear as guests on Larry King Live.”
“When one of my sponsors wants me to go with him to the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel for a weekend—and I’m not due to get any money from him for two months—I wonder if it’s really worth it. After I’ve already received a chunk of money, I really don’t feel like being bothered.”
“An older man feels he maintains youth by having someone around who is younger,” he says. “And there are men—both homosexual and heterosexual—who simply like to pay for sex and for favors. They enjoy buying clothes or a convertible or dinner at expensive restaurants. Why? To show off. To maintain youth. To be allowed to live vicariously through the eyes of youth.”
“Keep in mind that this is something that occurs not only in the gay community but also the heterosexual community,” says David. “Repeated solicitation of the same prostitute does not constitute a legal relationship. That’s against the law. But the idea of a ‘kept’ relationship is that it is a long-term solution where one person supports the other. It’s not prostitution. It may be money for sex, but usually there is more consideration shown in these long-term relationships.”
Though perfectly legal, daddy/boy relationships—quietly more common than most people realize—are made public in mainstream San Diego about as often as rain showers in the Anza-Borrego Desert.
“San Diego is not the same as San Francisco or New York when it comes to the visibility of a gay community,” says Mark Johnson, media director of the Washington, D.C.–based National Gay & Lesbian Task Force.
Sitting on newsstands in the Big Apple, a New York magazine cover story on trophy boys barely raises an eyelash. New Yorkers take in stride the news that music industry mogul David Geffen and Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner attend glittery Gotham parties with young boys in tow.
“Gamma Mu is a group that likes to have younger boys around,” says the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force’s Johnson. “It’s nothing new for older gay men to be attracted to attractive people. If they have power and position, some want a trophy person to make them look good. To a large extent, the gay community puts a high premium on physical appearance. Older people often get overlooked.”
Johnson also says that, especially in a conservative town like San Diego, “it’s not feasible for some older men to be seen out in gay bars or at gay social functions. So they turn to organizations like Gamma Mu.”
Or to the Internet.
David, who says online ads opened up a world he never knew existed, thinks he’s seen it all. “I’ve met movie directors,” he says, “actors, attorneys, judges, priests, clergypeople ... it’s phenomenal what actually goes on.” He adds that many of the men he’s been involved with are, publicly at least, happily married.
Though they risk having their secret lives discovered, his benefactors have dined with him in public many times, David says. “I don’t want to sound holier-than-thou, but I can sit at a nice restaurant and exhibit the proper manners. Granted, there are some people who aren’t educated or don’t have the class to be with these people. But when I put on a coat and tie and sit down for dinner, I don’t exactly look like a flaming fag.”
Asked what he believes people would think about him if they read about what he does, David pauses.
“My mother knows I have a sponsor,” he finally says. “She’s okay with it, for the most part. She wishes her son didn’t need to rely on anybody for money. She knows I’m going to school. That I’m trying to better myself. I am HIV-negative. I pay all my bills and study hard. And I happen to have somebody—okay, more than one person —who is very generous to me. They care about me and want to see me succeed.
“You can get a different answer on this from me, depending on what day of the week you ask. If somebody is thinking about doing something like what I do ... I would advise against it. It’s not a healthy thing for your soul or mind. Whatever situation you get in, you’re relying on somebody else for your living.
“No matter how generous they are, you have to rely on someone besides yourself. It could end at any moment. One or both of my sponsors could croak, and where would I be? I’d be an overaged hooker trying to get back to something.”
DISABLED TRANSGENDER DROPS SEX TAPE:
Transgender teenager Piyah Martell was born with a shortened spine and tiny legs but it has not stopped her dreams of becoming a star.
The 19-year-old, who walks on her hands, films herself performing music videos of songs by divas like Mariah Carey and Beyonce, and has built up a loyal following on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
Piyah, from Sacramento, California, was born as Pedro Martell, but announced to her parents at the age of 15 that she wanted to start dressing as a girl.
She began buying women's outfits and wearing make-up and is now deciding whether to start hormone treatment so she can transition to becoming a full woman.
Piyah, whose body appears to stop at the waist, has a condition called Caudal Regression Syndrome, a rare disorder which means her spine and legs did not develop properly in the womb.
The brave teenager had a difficult time as a child, losing her real mother at seven, and being bullied at school because she was different.
She said: 'I've always felt different since I was about six. I liked playing with girl toys and I knew in my heart there was something different about me.
'I was born a boy but I have a girl mind.'
Piyah says her mother Mary treated her exactly the same as her brother Angelo, 21, despite her disability and this made her strong and determined.
'She raised me as a normal kid. I didn't realize I was different,' she explained.
Piyah is already an internet star, but shocked fans when she dropped a sex tape last week.
If one were in with the Los Angeles Lakers after the 1985 championship season, he or she had an opportunity to party at two of the hottest spots in America.
The mansion belonging to Jerry Buss.
The mansion belonging to Magic Johnson.
The two abodes, located mere miles apart, came complete with swimming pools, hot tubs, bars, home theatres, expansive kitchens, enormous yards and hosts who embraced—in no particular order—women with large breasts, women with long legs, women with gymnast-like flexibility, women in their 20s, and women with a proclivity for sex.
Buss resided in Pickfair, the Beverly Hills mansion Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks chose as a home after the two cinematic idols married in 1920. It had been the first private property in the Los Angeles area to include a swimming pool. Throughout the 1920s, dinners at Pickfair became the stuff of Hollywood legend. Among those who attended were Amelia Earhart, Charlie Chaplin, Rudolf Valentino and George Bernard Shaw. However, when Fairbanks (who destroyed his marriage by having an affair with Lady Sylvia Ashley) and Pickford divorced in 1936, the magic vanished. Pickford remained in the home but lost herself to alcoholism and depression. She let the place fall into disrepair, and, by the time she died in 1979, Pickfair was a dump.
Buss, however, believed in the power of Hollywood Past. In September 1980, he paid $5,362,500 for the estate, and shortly thereafter brought his daughter, Jeanie, to 1143 Summit Drive in the San Ysidro Canyon for a look-see. "It wasn't good," she said. "I thought we were just visiting, so I took a picture in every room. I didn't know he was about to buy it, but my dad believed in the fantasy. He loved movie stars and entertainment, and to him, Pickfair was perfect."
Before long, Buss transformed the 22-room home into a magnificent ode to classic décor meets 1980s adventurism. His dinner parties were fantastic. His guest list was magnificent. Buss thought of Pickfair as a souped-up Playboy Mansion. "Jerry was a night owl," said John Rockwell, an actor who befriended the Lakers owner. "He spent a lot of time at night in Pickfair, playing poker, drinking rum and cokes. One time I had to drag him from Pickfair to the Forum for a game. He never wanted to leave that place."
"I'm no prince of a guy, but with Jerry and Pickfair it was like, 'Really? You're fifty-something and still dating 20-year-olds?'" said Scott Carmichael, who worked for the Los Angeles Kings at the time. "He had Playmates coming in and out, these 25-year-old bimbo girlfriends coming in and out. He was very into stars and stardom."
Buss hungered for adventure. When Charline Kenney, his longtime assistant, once called at 9 a.m., he groggily replied, "Charline, calling me at 9 is like calling me at 3 a.m." He regularly chartered jets for nights and weekends with his crew in Las Vegas. Every summer, he and Lance Davis, a friend, would visit San Diego, drive across the Mexican border, and hit Tijuana to watch bullfighting. "Then he'd tell me, 'Lance, they drag that bull out back and make it into tacos,'" Davis said. "So we'd eat tacos. He'd laugh at me—'Lance, you're eating the bull! You're eating the bull!'"
Thanks to Pickfair, the good times came to Buss. On a monthly basis, he allowed different charitable foundations to hold fundraisers on the Pickfair lawn. Though the philanthropic Buss was well intentioned, the events often went deep into the night, a cesspool of alcohol and sex and—on occasion—cocaine. "I went to work for Jerry after I was done playing (in 1983), so sometimes I'd go to Pickfair for parties," said Ron Carter, the former Lakers guard. "I learned quickly I couldn't go and hang with him and still make it to the office the next morning. I got married to get away from Jerry. That wasn't a life I could live."
If the goings-on at Pickfair were wild, the events hosted by Johnson were orgasmic. The star point guard had lived in one of Buss's apartment complexes until 1984, when he purchased his own 9,000-square-foot Bel Air mansion. Though not quite as awe-inspiring as Pickfair, Johnson's Tudor home had once belonged to the French consulate, and contained (among other things) an indoor racquetball-basketball court, a sauna, a whirlpool, and a disco complete with strobe lights and thousands of records. Alongside the master bedroom was a tiny room with a sunken hot tub and a panoramic view of the canyon his home overlooked. The house also boasted something close to his heart—the greatest stereo system anyone had ever seen. With speakers the size of Cadillacs, the 18 rooms filled with the sounds of Michael Jackson and Earth, Wind & Fire, and Marvin Gaye.
While Johnson didn't host as many shindigs as Buss, the ones that took place were beyond compare. The Lakers point guard neither drank alcohol nor did drugs, but his parties were odes to excess and extravagance. Many Lakers agree the most beautiful women they ever met were encountered at Johnson's. They were models, strippers, actresses, exotic dancers. There was no hotter ticket than an invite to the mansion, but—while Laker players and opponents were almost always allowed—women had to meet certain criteria. First, they had to be gorgeous. Second, they had to be promiscuously dressed. Third, they had to be willing to do . . . things.
Johnson fancied himself not merely an entertainer, but a maestro. "If you ever die and go to heaven, you want heaven to be Magic's house parties," said Frank Brickowski, a future Lakers teammate. "He would have the finest girls in L.A. there. The absolute finest. And at midnight you had to get busy with somebody or you had to get the fuck out. So if you were a guy, at midnight you'd get as close as you could to the hottest possible woman. Magic went around in this freaky voyeuristic way. He'd check on you. He'd go throughout the house, the pool. He'd order people to start doing things. All you had to be was near a chick. There were guys who would yell, 'Magic, she's not getting busy! She's not!' He'd run over and she'd get busy. Celebrity is seductive in L.A. Girls have this desperation about them, like moths to a flame. It's sad. But when you're young and single, fame matters."
Just because one was a Laker didn't mean sexual conquests always came easily. Yet Johnson wasn't merely the most eligible bachelor in Los Angeles—he was the most eligible bachelor in California. He once wrote of his rendezvous: "Some were secretaries. Some were lawyers. Quite a few were actresses or models. Others were teachers, editors, accountants, or entrepreneurs. There were bimbos, too, but not that many. Most of these women were college-educated professionals. Some were black, some were white, some were Hispanic, or Asian. Some of these women were very open about what they were doing, and some were more discreet. A few would even brag about all the players they had slept with. For others, this was all a part of a very secret life.
"Most of them were in their mid-20s. Every now and then you'd come across a teenager, but if you were smart you stayed away from her. These kids were simply too young—not only legally, but emotionally, too."
This was the Sodom and Gomorrah-esque world that greeted A. C. Green (pictured above).
He was the Lakers' latest first-round pick, a 21-year-old power forward out of Oregon State whose drive and hustle made him, on paper, a perfect fit for a team that specialized in all-out effort. Having wasted his previous top selection on Earl Jones, Jerry West (not one to forgive himself ) was determined to make sure Los Angeles landed a contributor in the 23 spot. Leading up to June 18, 1985, most of the team's scouts and executives were pushing for Terry Porter, a 6-foot-3 guard out of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Porter had averaged 19.7 points and 5.2 rebounds as a senior, and Gene Tormohlen, the Lakers's top scout, insisted he was a potential star. "I just thought he had the chance to become excellent," said Tormohlen. "He would take the pressure off Earvin, sort of like Norman once did. But Jerry was sold on A.C., and when Jerry's sold on someone . . ."
West liked that Green played without an ego. When the Beavers needed him to score, he scored. When they needed him to rebound, he rebounded. There were hundreds of minutes of Oregon State game tapes inside the Forum offices, and not once did Green appear to mope, whine, or talk trash. He was a power forward in the most traditional of models—hammer the boards, block shots, charge ahead, work to the point of exhaustion. "He had no airs about him," said Roger Levasa, an Oregon State football player and close friend. "A.C. wasn't cocky or arrogant or someone who thought being athletic made him special. He just wanted to do well and do the right thing."
There was just one small problem: A. C. Green was a virgin.
By "problem," one means not to imply that avoiding premarital sex is somehow wrong. No, it's just that, on the Lakers, virginity wasn't mocked or ridiculed—it was impossible. From Johnson and Abdul-Jabbar to Michael Cooper and James Worthy, Los Angeles's players came to appreciate the special carnal perk of being a member of basketball's elite team. There was sex to be had, and more sex to be had. There were strip clubs to be visited, prostitutes to call, groupie fantasies to fulfill.
Virginity? Virginity was for priests.
Even before Green reported to the team, players shared among themselves his off-the-court scouting report.
Has the world's moistest Jheri curl.
Knows every page of the Bible by heart.
Has probably never kissed a girl (who wasn't a relative).
In particular, they laughed over an incident that took place his sophomore year at Oregon State, when Green entered the student bookstore and was aghast to see copies of Playboy being sold alongside Time and Sports Illustrated. When the manager refused his request to move the magazines elsewhere, Green led a protest, encouraging students to shop at the nearby Circle K. "Then I went to the Circle K, and they sold the same pornography," he said. "So I protested them, too." Before long, Green and several other Oregon State students generated national attention, and he spoke openly about his decision to remain celibate until marriage. When the Beavers traveled to Arizona State, Green stepped to the free-throw line and was greeted by fans, situated behind the basket, waving posters of bikini-clad girls. "It was funny," Green said. "Really, that was as bad as it got."
Until he arrived in Los Angeles. Upon joining the team, all rookies were required to partake in a training camp ritual known as the Buck a Rome Show—an evening when each newcomer had to sing and perform skits for the veterans, coaches and executives. When Green was called to the front of the room, Johnson shouted out, "Sing your fight song!"
Green didn't know the words to "Hail to Old OSU."
"Well," said Johnson, "give us 'Billie Jean.'"
"Billie what?" said Green.
"'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson," Johnson replied with disbelief.
"I don't know that one either," Green said, his voice drowned out by cackles.
Johnson ran off a series of singers: Prince. Phil Collins. Aretha Franklin. James Brown. New Edition. Chicago.
"Look, rookie, you're singing," Johnson said. "You have no choice." "Well," said Green, "name a gospel song. . . ."
Finally, James Worthy, the quietest Laker, piped up from the rear. "Sing 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot!' " he said.
"Uh . . ." said Green.
"So I did," said Green. "Not well, but well enough. That broke me through and gave me my first real connection with the team. Not that they went easy on me."
In what had been one of the busier off-seasons in recent team history, West let Jamaal Wilkes and Bob McAdoo depart. Though both men were past their primes, the moves were unpopular with players, and left Green in the uncomfortable role as replacement to legends. Was it his fault? No more so than it had been Byron Scott's when he was traded for Norm Nixon. Yet the Laker mainstays were upset that two trusted hands were gone, and the virgin was here. "They knew I wasn't the normal rookie," Green said. "So they tested me."
The team opened with a two-game Texas road swing at San Antonio and Dallas, and Johnson and company wasted little time. While taking the bus from the San Antonio International Airport to the hotel, the Laker star yelled toward Green, "Rook, we haven't figured you out yet, but we're going to take a bet."
"What sort of bet?" the rookie asked.
"Once you start seeing these girls around the NBA," he said, "you won't be thinking any of that Christian and God stuff."
"Really?" said Green. "You think so?"
Johnson liked the newcomer's confidence. He also laughed at it. The NBA was the land of long legs and quick bangs. Few could resist its charms. "We'll give you two months, and you'll be done," he said. "Two months." Johnson removed the baseball cap from his head and passed it around, urging his teammates to plunk down some money. By the time the hat returned to its owner, Green was staring at nearly $300 in crumpled bills. "You don't get laid once in two months, the money's yours," said Johnson. "But there's no fucking way. . . ."
Less than a month later, the Lakers were in Portland to face the Blazers. Green, who was reared in the city, scored 11 points in 27 minutes of action ("I played lousy," he said), and afterward stood outside the locker room, chatting away with a striking young woman. "I saw all the guys sorta looking over, wondering what was going on," Green recalled. "Finally someone comes over and says, 'Hey, rookie, who is this?'"
Green smiled. "Oh, meet Vanessa," he said. "My sister."

NEW EBOOK! (THINK AND GROW RICH):
You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.
The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.
Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.
The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic).
Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."
"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."
I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.
When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.
You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
