    I haven’t seen this man in forever and felt like he disappeared off the far of the earth forever and now that I finally get to see this interview I thought his voice would be deep and be like in a dark mood. If y’all watch basketball back in the days this man used to knock niggas out off the muscle and now with this interview his voice sounds very friendly and it seems like he changed from his past and makes you want to get engaged. I did subscribe to showtime and I watch the chi but whenever I hop on the app I see Ron artest on a cover so I’m guessing he has his own show. I will definitely be tuning in after a lm done with the chi.

    QB, 96 buildings, 6 blocks
    Same hood as the Mobb, Mega, Nature and Nas
    MC Shan, Craig G and Marley
    And the real Roxanne Shanté is from QB
    But every man is for they self, it is no unity
    Which makes it difficult for there to be you and me
    Ron Artest made it to the NBA
    And we used to play together, back in the days....
    Salute a Living Legend Ron Artest!!!

    Still don’t understand why the bulls traded him and Elton brand. That bulls team had a lot of potential and they gave up on both guys too quickly. Much love to metta world peace though, one of the best perimeter defenders off all time!
