video review : Jake Paul versus Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club

video review : Jake Paul versus Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club

Even ignoring all the annoying theatrics; the dancing robot, the epilepsy lights, the gay commentary; this fight leaves much to be desired. Jake Paul lands a right hook near the middle of the very first round, Ben Askren falls down but stands back up, albeit a little wobbly, and the referee stops the fight.

It’s an unwarranted stoppage from what I can see; Askren looks poised and ready to continue by the time the ref calls it; but nonetheless another ignominious loss on his once immaculate fighting record. Perhaps the reported half-million he’s earning makes up for it. Snoop Dogg apparently bet on Jake.

audio review : Down 4 My Niggas ( song ) … C-Murder ( featuring Magic + Snoop Dogg )

If C-Murder insisted on “4” for “For”, he should’ve put four Niggas on the song. Not that he’s the type that cares about petty semantics. He might shoot me for even suggesting it. “If you fuck with me,” he warns, “it’s a must you die.”

What makes the song go hard is that along with decent verses; Snoop’s monotone flow drags the energy down a bit; and a solid beat, it has a catchy hook, albeit one that almost makes the mistake of parroting the horn riff.
