The video below is a conversation between Bucks draft pick Brandon Jennings and hip-hop wash-up Joe Budden. The audio is a bit fuzzy, so Freaknick offers a translation (WARNING: video contains explicit content, and listening to these two engage in conversation will most likely leave you dumber than you were before clicking play).
Joe Budden (1 min 18 secs): I got [girls] in Milwaukee, I aint even gonna front. LOL.
Translation: I wish girls still believed me when I told them I was famous. : (
JB (2:38): Don’t f*** it up.
Translation: I’ll f*** it up for you myself. I’ll have this on YouTube in no time.
JB (2:55): If you’re trying to be like Joe Budden then you’re doing the right thing.
Translation: You’re on speakerphone and I’m recording this call on my webcam. Because I’m a loser.
Brandon Jennings (4:42): Man, f*** the Knicks. Them [people] skipped out on me, man. F*** the Knicks.
Translation: I had myself going 1,2,3,4 and 5 in my mock draft. And they finally got rid of Starbury and Isiah! They need a new headcase…I could be that guy!
JB (4:52): Yo, you feel to the Knicks how I do about Jay-Z? The Knicks are your Jay-Z? (Very pleased with himself, Budden laughs hysterically. Jury’s still out about what was funny.)
Translation: I was this close to riding Jay-Z’s coattails to fame. Now I’m filming my conversations with 19-year-olds and living off royalties from Def Jam Vendetta in my girlfriend’s guest room. I hate my life.
BJ (5:24): I bet Method Man would whoop your ass in a freestyle!
Translation: I just mentioned Method Man and I’m talking to Joe Budden. I have an extremely distorted perception of who’s cool. And I need new friends.
JB (5:29): I’m hanging up on you.
Translation: Look, man, it’s been a pleasure chopping your public image at the knees, but YouTube traffic is crazy right and so I need to strike while the iron is hot.
