Wish and me.

On Sunday my brother and I were on a flight back to Cleveland from Palm Springs, California and we had a lay over in Phoenix. After finishing a chili/cheese coney dog from Jody Maroni's Sausage Kingdom (which would prove to be the biggest mistake ever as it was gas city for me the entire flight home) I boarded the plane. As I was walking to my seat, I looked and saw what looked like a familiar face already sitting down. "Is that?...no that...it is." It was Wish Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony. After staring for a few seconds just to make sure it was him, I noticed that he was sitting in the seat directly in front of mine, thus giving me an excuse to talk to him. Here is part I of the conversation in its entirety:
"Excuse me, Wish?"
"Hey I just wanted to say hi. Im a fan of your music and I work at Peabodys. We did a show with you a little while back."
"Oh hey."
"You coming from Phoenix?"
"Naw Santa Cruz."
"I see."
Granted it was...no, actually it wasnt that late. It was like 6:45pm. But whatever, I try and show people respect and I for one can understand when you just don't feel like talking. So I stopped the conversation there and took my seat. About 4 hours later we had landed in the land of the heartless, and I decided that it was my duty as a contributor to the phenomenon that is Supposed to Bubble to get some info out of him while I could. With that in mind, I continued our conversation:
"So Wish, when's that new Bone album coming out?"
"And you guys are working with Swizz Beats? Anyone else?"
"(something resembling "Kanye")"
And with that he walked off the plane. I also bumped into him and his cohort in the bathroom but I wasnt about to bother him while he was taking a piss. Later on he even stood next to me as we picked up our luggage, but we didnt even acknowledge each other. Now I'm not trying to write some "Wish is a dick" post or shit like that. If anything he was just a normal dude flying home, just like me so I honestly have nothing against him. It's just that this Wish was in stark contrast to the Wish that the FYL dudes had talked to at the previously mentioned Wish and Layzie show last year. After that show Wish was talking "Ghetto Cowboy", shaking hands, patting us on the back, and even wishing us "goodnight". This time around he seemed kind of worn out, bummed. But hey, 2005's been kind of rough for Wish. Maybe he's still bummed about the time he was supposed to hang out with Mike Jones but couldn't find a parking spot. Or maybe the time that he got into a fight with his former Bone brother Bizzy. Or maybe that hes about 7 years overdue for a solo album.

But, the "comeback" album is in the works, and if anything Ive heard (Three 6 beats) is true, it is long overdue. So here's to you Wish, and your scheduled plane ride back to the top of the charts.

On an unrelated note, Dave Meggett, former running back for the New York Giants is selling his Superbowl ring on ebay. It's currently going for $40,000, with a "buy it now" price of $60,000. It currently has no bids, but you, or maybe Thurman Thomas, can be the first. Peep it here

I think it's safe to say that you can F that L.

yeah, Thurman'll pick that up for 60k ... he'll put it on and then "fumble" it into a drainage ditch. here's to the bills ... always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

seriously though, wish left peabodys then came back inside to tell you to have a goodnight ...

i think you might end up replacing bizzy ... what will your "bone name" be?

buu bone?
