:00 — Immediately we see Lamar Odom and his shirtless, nameless buddy…let’s call him $nugglez. This begs a few questions: Where are their shirts? Were they in such a rush to kick a duet freestyle that they didn’t have time to grab shirts? Do they even know they’re not wearing shirts?
So many questions. But let’s move on.
:02 — Lamar just called himself “God’s Son.” Just making sure you caught that.
:06-:10 — When I was in drama class in middle school, we’d do this improv game where we’d all say a word in a circle and it’d have to tell a story. This is that, but in freestyle form. Who decides that this its he way they’ll choose to freestyle? “Hey, $nugglez, we’re gonna freestyle, but we’re gonna do it one bar at a time. Gonna kill em, son!”
:10-:25 — This is the point where it sinks in that we’re witnessing something for the record books. Lamar Odom said something about newborn babies in his sleeve but she he drops the “BREEVE,” coins a catchphrase for the ages. When my wife tells me to take out the trash, I’ll just be all, “LEMME…*deep breath*…BREEVE! *slumps shoulders*”
:35-:45 — Here’s where $nugglez almost messes up. He veers off the path to crack talk and says, “we started on the block, talk to my man he knows all of them *silence*.” Buddy was definitely about to talk about Lamar knowing about those rocks because it rhymes with “block.” Ha, just kidding. Nothing they’ve said has rhymed so far so he was probably doing to say “balloons.”
:45 — Note. Their shirts are still off.
