[00:00:04] Speaker A: Somebody needs to do a song for LA. [00:00:13] Speaker B: Hello, my name is Elaine, and I'll be your tour guide through south central Los Angeles. Look, count my nose. Smoke up. I'm from California. [00:00:22] Speaker A: Where you from? So what? [00:00:24] Speaker B: I'm from California. California, California, California. [00:00:29] Speaker A: This is Los Angeles. [00:00:30] Speaker B: Where are we going? [00:00:38] Speaker A: Back at it like a bracket. Back bragging, heavyweight, tall with a pantsack, still shooting dice, no backgammon, lame, nice. Of a silver satin still. Y'all niggas had some poor plays before in your lives. I know y'all did. Because, like, if you know me, then you probably still at the bottom, because, like, you know me. So all y'all niggas wasn't eating good back in the day like that? Some of y'all niggas did get some money. I look, I see you. I see you pocket watching. Maybe, maybe. But I know, I know. I know when niggas is eating good. Now, you know, I know what eating good is. That's crazy. But we all have those, like, those special meals that shit. Some of us, a lot of you n still eat the same stuff. And y'all got a little bit of change in your pocket now. But y'all just can't get away from it. It's ugly. It's a nasty habit that you got. It's almost toxic in a way. I'm watching you guys. I'm a part of that crudo. Yeah, I'm a part. I'm not afraid to say it. I'm not afraid. Yo, yo, shout out. Yo, shout out to my boy. Shout out to Mike. All right, one half of what up, though? And shout out to Sean. You know what I'm saying? And Choffy, you know, we in the group chat, niggas. Some, somebody posted a Arby's video, right? I think it was a cat that was in Atlanta. And Arby, line. Just crazy right? Now. The running joke is like, nobody eats at Arby. Like, no. Like, not a regular human, right? And here's the thing. In my personal group chat, the cast, my sandbox group chat, we be dogging. We be dogging. Arby's. Like, we make fun of it all the time. You know what I'm saying? And, you know, it's just that roast beef one. And like, the ham and cheese or turkey and cheese or whatever this shit. Cheddar, they had some wild. They had some wild sandwiches back then, you know what I'm saying? And I've been to Arby's once, me and the wife, during the pandemic, she got some Mac and cheese pissed me off. Pissed me well off. You know what I'm saying? Because we know we didn't make that cheat. We didn't make that one. And I got me like a turkey. Like a turkey sandwich. And it was good. The turkey sandwich was fire, though. You know what I'm saying? That was a good selection by me. High five. But that was the only time. We was all doing some crazy shit during the pandemic. We was out there just trying to survive and not touch shit and not be close to people. So we just said, fuck it. Let's go to you know what. And it was the only thing that was open. And we didn't want McDonald's. I don't fuck with McDonald's like that. But we not going to act like Arby's is not the poster child for just being picked on and made fun of, you know, we not gonna do that. But here's the thing. I kinda agree. I think it is. I think it is good. And you can't fully criticize a place and you haven't had everything that they had. Right? Wrong. That's not how we work. But at the same time, at the same time, I agree. I think they probably do got some fire stuff on that menu. They just. They been that long on a totem pole. That's all. That's all it is. Desperate moments. High, high nights. Yeah, I'm in there. You can catch me slipping up in there. But outside of that, no, it might. My. My account is still one. I think I went another time, but I didn't buy anything. So technically, I've been inside of a arby's twice in my life. Oh, no, no, no, three. Because I did go buy that ragu burger when they. When that, uh, when it first came out. And that shit was trash. It was stupid. It was stupid. Anyhow, let's get to it. This episode, man, I'm about to expose some of y'all niggas because y'all still doing it. Are we talking about struggle place hall of Fame, though, this holiday? Cuz I don't like when you do y'all. Y'all be out there doing our regular top fives and top tens and stuff like that. They don't be hall of Fame worthy, though. They don't be getting nominated. No, they don't. They don't. So we gonna start with the first one. Cheese toast out the gate. Yes. Grilled cheese. Cheese toast. Well, look, there is a difference. There's a difference between grilled cheese and cheese toast, because cheese toast. You can put it in the bottom of the oven, but you gotta watch it. Cause that burner. Yeah, that bread. That bread gonna toast pretty goddamn fast. You ever had. You ever burnt your cheese, like, the top of it? It's just black, but on the inside, that mug is just the cheese just falling off the ceiling. You ever ate the cheese toast like that? I did. I did. I'm not afraid to say it. That's a cheese toast. Now, grilled cheese. That's all cast iron skillet right there. Butter. Butter. You need three ingredients. You need bread, cheese, butter. And the more butter you use. Yes. Diabetes is on the way, obviously, but the more butter you use. Oh, my God. And I. And I was on some freaky shit during the pandemic. I was making those colorazzi. I was getting three slices of bread, cheese, strawberry, jellyfish, and butter. And let me tell you something. Wow. I don't care what y'all say. I fight slap box. Cause I don't want to disrespect nobody. Let's slap box anybody. I promise you, both genders, we can slap box about this. Fire. Fire. Okay. De Jonte Murray dropped 44 tonight, and I think 44 shots. I don't know. Some crazy line they had against the spurs, but they still lost. Brunson had dropped 60, and they lost cheese toast. Those cheese toast slash grilled cheese. You got to fuck with that one. You got to fuck with that one. Is the probably the cheapest that I got. Probably got on this list. You know what I'm saying? Spaghetti. Come on now. Spaghetti. That's a go to right there. How many of y'all have had spaghetti and fried chicken? How many of y'all believe in spaghetti and fish? Is that y'all conjugation? Do y'all do the spaghetti and fish? Cause I do. I will. I have. What kind of fish is it? Now? That's the key right there. Some of you niggas don't know y'all fishes. Y'all fishies. I know. I know, Mike. It's just fish. I get it. I get it. Yeah. Spaghetti is fire now. Oh, what about this, though? Let me see. Who won a slap box for a minute. Do you mix your noodles into the pasta, or do you keep your pasta and your noodles segregated, huh? What do y'all do? And my wife is so. She's so pasta racist. She only likes not to say she won't try the other ones, but she is very conservative when it comes to her pasta. That nigga do not like eating pasta. Any other pasta outside of angel hair. And I'm talking about the. The thinner it is, the better for her. She only want angel hair pasta. I'm cool. I used to make this shit called spaghetti surprise that would have ground turkey, polish sausage, paws, and chicken, grilled chicken. Oh, and shrimp. And shrimp. And I don't make that one anymore because my wife just be hating dog. But, yeah, I caught that one. Spaghetti surprise. But, yeah, we gonna talk about his spaghetti. I mentioned spaghetti and fish, right? But who. Pop quiz right now in the middle of the episode. Oh, this is fire. This is fire, bro. You. You killing it. Who is Spaghetti's right hand man? You a lie. You a lie. You know, what did you just say, huh? Because if it wasn't cornbread, you a motherfucker. You was a lie, man. I can't say you niggas be lying. You're lying if you think spaghetti and cornbread is not bron and wade in Miami, you know that's the truth. Cornbread goes with spaghetti, and spaghetti goes with cornbread. Stop playing with me. Okay. All right, then. All right, then. Cause I'm gonna let you know the truth. We gonna go on the tacos. Yeah, tacos. Top, ultimate struggle meal. Gotta be hall of Fame. Gotta be hall of Fame. And everybody make their tacos different. How many of y'all make y'all tacos like, y'all shells like this? You fry them up front, back, put on the. Put it on the napkin or the plate, then put the meat and the cheese in there and then put it back in a grease. How many of y'all do, if you did that, that mean you was raised, either you was. Either you was raised in the projects, or you grew up not too far from you was within 5 miles of a project and you slept. And when you had to take a nap, any black child that had to come in the house in the middle of the day and take a nap because their parents told them to them. Them. How do y'all make y'all a salsa? Do y'all make y'all salsa with. With cilantro? Do y'all add green onions, tomatoes, regular onions? Huh? Do y'all pour the lemon. Y'all put a lemon on. Do y'all season y'all salsa? Do y'all blend it up and make it, like, a little sauce and pour it on there? What do y'all do? What is it? What is it? What is it that y'all doing? Do y'all still use beef or they mess with ground turkey? Huh? Are y'all niggas fancy. And go get the pastor, huh? To baron aid it. What's the other shit? The. Yeah, what's the shit that start with a b? You dip the shit. You know what I'm talking about? I can't think of it right now. It's an underrated. It's underrated taco type of thing going on with that one. I like it. I like it. Tacos. And see, the thing with tacos is you can get freakier with it. It's the same thing. But like, do y'all niggas like corn versus flour? I'm a flower guy myself. Even when I make my enchiladas, I like flour tortillas. Flour. Okay. Fire, cuz. I like that. I like that. That gummy ness to it. Pause. Is that a good. That's not a good pause. That gumminess to it, right? Not immature. Yeah, I love that. I love that enchilada sauce. I'm at 41, though. My wife can attest to this heartburn. I can't mess with that red sauce no more at 41. That's in the middle of the night. I'll throw that shit up. Yeah. That acid reflux be. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. And you know, when you get that, I'm a person that don't throw up a lot at all of. You know what I mean? It's very rare. I probably got about nine total in my life, maybe. And that's just. I just threw a number out there and I might. That might be high, but. Nah, man, that you. When you. When you have to spend a portion of your day tasting that throw up in your mouth. Oh, man. Some shit stuck in your throat. Pulse. That's a good one. That was a good one right there. Yeah. Can't do it. That green sauce, my wife makes both of them. You know what I'm saying? But look, that's what I wanted to say. The taco, you can spin off. It's so many. So many spin off shows of the taco. You got the burrito, you got the quesadilla, or. What did the white girl say? I forgot what she said. I want to find that video, though. Let me. I gotta find it. I'm sorry. I gotta find a video. I gotta find a video because what she said is just gonna go with what we was talking about. That shit was so funny. I gotta find. Here it go right here. Here. Go right here. [00:13:40] Speaker B: What's that called that you're eating? A case of idea. A case of idea. Say it again. Take Nathan. Always say it again. Nathan always has. Case of ideal. So I'm having it. What do you call it? Case of idea. [00:13:56] Speaker A: A case of idea. See? So you can make a case of idea off top. You know what I'm saying? What's. What's, uh. So, uh. So base. So base. Tortas. You know I'm saying you can make all kind of shit, man. Same. It's the same, you know, whatever meat you choose. And how you do your salsa with the cheese? Oh, what kind of cheese y'all get? Y'all get to shredded. Y'all get to shredded gouda. That's on. That's only me. Smoke shredded gouda. Some of y'all niggas like parmesan, mozzarella, sharp cheddar, white cheddar. White sharp cheddar. Oh, that's fire. That's fire. That Vermont, huh? It's some cheese is out there, man. It's some real cheeses out there. You know I'm saying? Sour cream. Which sour cream? Do y'all. Do y'all do the sour cream that you squeeze out? You know what I'm saying? Or do y'all get the. I get the essay sour cream with the green top, the sour cream. Oh, my God. What do y'all port the tahini seasoning on there, too, so y'all don't be getting freaky like that. Some of y'all not as freaky as y'all think y'all are. If you gonna do a struggle play, I mean, at least if you gonna get a hooker off a fig, go put her in some nice, you know, I'm saying, like, whatever out there like that. Oh, my God. We just finished talking about this one. Remember we talked about spaghetti? Cornbread, stupid cornbread. Cornbread. And look at the bare minimum. The bare minimum. You need, what, maybe about three, three to four ingredients for you freaky people out there. Y'all gonna put a little bit of grease in there because they ask you to. I don't. I put butter, two eggs, and then some water or milk. Some people use water. Some people use milk. So. I seen my freaky ass use almond milk before. Yeah, fire. You know what I'm saying? Then you could do all kind of other shit if you want to add a. You know, because they have different flavors. Now, at first, we didn't have, you know, the apple. The apple. The apple flavor, when it had a little apple thingamajigs in there. They got a blueberry one. You know what I'm saying? That's fire right there. I don't do those too much. I just do the regular cornbread. Cornbread without cornbread. How you. How you gonna make. How you gonna. How you gonna do thanksgiving, huh? How you gonna do that stuffing, huh? How you gonna do that dressing? Which one y'all? Which one y'all eat? Dressing or stuffing? Ooh. Starts with cornbread, though, bro. Starts with cornbread. Cornbread and spaghetti are best friends. Yes. For a very long time. That cornbread fire. And then when you take it out the oven, you know what I'm saying? The complexion gotta be. It's red bone. It's a light, dark skinned red bone. Oh, man, you get that butter, that salted butter just let. And you just. And you watching life unfold while that butter is just massaging into the top layer of that cornbread. So sizzling. What? And sometimes you just gotta let that motherfucker cool down a little bit. Because before you cut out that pie shaped cornbread, you know, sometimes it be so hot and moist to where you know, it'll break apart. You don't want it to break apart. Oh, you be mad when you only get, you know what I'm saying? Like, you get about 45% of the cornbread and the rest is still in the. Oh, man. Cornbread, man. That shit special. Cause cornbread is. That's a hybrid. You know what I'm saying? It's in between dessert and dinner. That's what it is. It's a cheat sheet. It's a cheat code for kids. They be fucking that cornbread up. It's called cornbread. That shit, man. It ain't nothing but a cake. That shit ain't nothing but a dinner cake. That's all it is. Get freaky with it. Stop playing around, man. You know what I'm saying? These are the first ones that's going into a hall of fame, by the way. All right, I'm a mention. I don't know where y'all. I don't know where y'all at on pork and beans. Well, poor I. Pork and beans is on the next wave. But that was show was a struggle meal. Pork and beans was crazy, dog. Niggas was cutting up hot dogs and putting them in those. In those beans, and they was eating them. I was there. I was there. I ate pork and beans. And I never. I never had a complaint about it. I didn't. I stopped. I think my pork and bean career stopped probably when I was like, maybe like eleven or twelve, maybe. I think so. But my peak mvp years was definitely like nine, eight, nine, something like that. Fucking them. Come on, dog. Don't disrespect pork and beans like that. And here we go here. This is the last one for. For this class. This is the first class that getting nominated into the struggle play hall of Fame. Grits. Mmm. I know we n. I know niggas is about to fight on this one. I know we about to get into it on this one, because, yes, I am that one that put butter and sugar in my grits. And it's on the back of the box. I'm not arguing with you niggas no more, okay? Y'all try to make us look a certain way. We try to make y'all look. And you know what? No, we more. We. We more liberal than y'all. Like the. The shrimp and the shrimp and grits. The shrimp and gravy committee is. Y'all act more. Y'all move in a conservative way. The butter and sugar, you know I'm saying clan or whatever you wanna call us, cult. We more liberal. We like. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah. We accept y'all, but we fuck with what we do. Yeah. And for you, the niggas that's talking about that, be really pushing the line on just salt and pepper. Let me tell you something, you little freak. Okay? I can't stand y'all. I can't stand y'all, dawg. It's like. You know what I'm saying? It's like, I feel like if you just do salt and pepper, like, I feel like you clutch your purse, you know what I'm saying? Or you jump. Or you walk across the street when you see a nigga like me. That's what I feel like. That's what I feel. That's what I honestly feel like. Like, be offended because y'all are so conservative. Yeah. No, I put salt on mine, but I also put butter, and I also put sugar. And there's nothing wrong with that. You wanna know why? Cause it's on the back of the box, my nigga. I understand what the education y'all niggas not educated. Some of y'all don't know how to cook. We was waiting for you at the door. You dusty. Nah, but for real, though, like, I'm kind of like Mike on this. If you haven't had it, then you can't really criticize it. And I feel like it was somebody sour ass auntie in 1971 that said, ugh. And then niggas just ran with that narrative. But it's on the back of the body. Like, it literally says that. And I'd be disappointed in y'all. I do, man. I do. But before I get up out of here, man, um, this is not a. This is. This is the next wave. I really, it really should have been number one or in or at least with the first group. And you know what? Duh, I could break the rules. My show. So I'm going about to add another one. It's not even an honor. Honorable mention. I'm extending a list. Open. We got to talk about top ramen. Huh? Top ramen. Chicken. Chicken. Chicken. Because the stereotype is true, if you didn't notice. We do like chicken because chicken top ramen is the number one. And there's not even. The other one is not even close. Like, after that, like, if you eat beef, if you eat beef, top ramen. I feel like you're awkward. Okay, but awkward. Still cool to be around. You know, we listen to the same type of music or we probably used to have same type of hobby or some shit like that. And then you got the shrimp one. That one was, I feel like the shrimp one was like, cool in the nineties, but it just didn't really pan out, you know what I'm saying? Then you had, what was the other? Oriental. What flavor is that, bro? And it was, it came in like the blue package, if I'm not mistaken. Right. And then it started getting freaky once you got to. Was it in the late. I don't remember the late nineties. I remember in the two thousands, though. I just can't remember when in the two thousands. But they chili lime, you know what I'm saying? They started doing freaky shit like that and I, and I had one and it was, it was, it was kind of cool. It wasn't bad. All this shit. Not good for it at all. I know. Anthram, forget that. Yo is just cringing right now. Why the shit that I'm talking about anyhow, though? No, we gotta put Tyron up there. But back when it was costing like twenty five cents. And it was serious, though. $0.25 for a pack of noodles. Yeah. Did y'all add something to it? I told y'all a story about in my college years, I met a cat. I forgot. I forgot my boy name. But he was from Oakley, not Oakland. He was from Oakley, California. And the nigga put me on to cheese ramen. Yes, yes. That nigga made some chicken top ramen and put a kraft cheese slice of cheese in there and he just let it sit there. He didn't poke no holes in it. He didn't tear it up or nothing like that. He just let that motherfucker sit there. That motherfucker melted and melt. Did I say melted? Melted. Melted, melted. I know my wife on my bumper right now, melted in that goddamn chicken. Thai ramen and. My God. Oh, we ghetto over here, bro. My God. Cheese ramen. Besides that, though, a couple of niggas, you know somebody that went to jail. You know somebody in prison right now. Ask them niggas if they put tuna in a tyranny. All right, then that's where we get it from. I do it. I still do it. And I put the chicken in there. Shredded chicken. Yep, yep. And then in the pen, they for sure chopping up those beef jerkies in there. And there's so niggas is getting freaky with that spread, ain't they? Yeah, man. Top ramen in there for sure. Most of them. At least 97.3% of black kosher has chicken top ramen as the best. One of the best noodles of. And like. And it's different from the cup of noodles. Cause like, fuck, cup of noodles, I had them, but it's like, nah. You know what I'm saying? But I do like the. That shit not good for us either, but it come in handy. Get it? I did that on purpose. But no, it's top ramen is definitely up there. Definitely up there. So, you know, King Germ, you know, he, him being from North Carolina, I know they have some struggle plates over there and that type, you know what I'm saying? And he a Florida guy, too, sec.
