You MAD Cuz I'm Stylin' On You - The ORIGINATOR


YOU mad cuz I'm stylin' on you.

Fugees - Rumble in the JUNGLE
James Brown - Soul Power (live)

YOU mad cuz I done styled on you.

These guys were definitely mad. Ali STYLED on 'em.

Wish Ali a Happy Birthday, even if you catch this a day late.
Watch or listen to "When We Were Kings," if you haven't done so already. If you need a good book to read, go pick up David Remnick's "King of the World."

I know it may not true, but eff it. I want to believe that ALI was the originator of the STYLIN' ON YOU movement. It just makes too much sense NOT to be true.

G.O.A.T.

It's cool that he lives here in Chicago. Just down the street from Farrakhan and Jessie.

I like the fact that after losing his first (or second?) Fight he declared that he is the greatest! - and never lost after that...

Also, with his awsome position as a spokesman for the American Negro and TNOI, one of his leading messages was to brush your teeth.

The difference is that "the originator" never got sucker punched for stylin on anyone. In fact, he did it better - he styled on them, and THEN punched them out lol.
As everybody said, G.O.A.T.

PEACE
