Jose Bautista (19)   Blue Jays | 9th | Koji Uehara | 0 | 1 | 4-3, Red Sox June 30, 2013 by MLB Home Runs of the Day

This home run tied the game up at 4 in the 9th inning.

Unfortunately for the Blue Jays, the comeback was extinguished when Shane Victorino hit a weak ground ball to first baseman Josh Thole; Thole has primarily played as a catcher throughout his career. Thole bobbled the ball, allowing Jonathan Diaz to score from second base.

(Jonny Gomes missed his teammate by about 10 feet.)

Ian Desmond (15)   Nationals | 9th | Anthony Recker | 1 | 0 | 11-0, Nationals June 30, 2013 by MLB Home Runs of the Day

After getting completely blown out in the first 8 innings of play, Mets manager Terry Collins decides to put in his back-up catcher, Anthony Recker, to pitch the 9th in an 11-0 game. MLB has his pitching debut uploaded, but they only show his three straight outs… not including the tater Ian Desmond hits into the left field stands earlier that inning.

(Check the score in the beginning of the video: it’s already 13-0.)

Pretty sneaky, MLB… but nothing gets by Sports Genius.

[Verse 3: Snoop Dogg]
Later on that day
My homey Dr. Dre came through with a gang of Tanqueray
And a fat ass J of some bubonic chronic that made me choke
Shit, this ain't no joke
I had to back up off of it and sit my cup down
Tanqueray and chronic: yeah I'm fucked up now
But it ain't no stopping, I'm still popping
Dre got some bitches from the city of Compton
To serve me; not with a cherry on top
Cause when I bust my nut I'm raising up off the cot
Don't get upset, girl, that's just how it goes
I don't love you hoes, I'm out the door
And I'll be

[Verse 2: Snoop Dogg]
Now that I got me some Seagram's gin
Everybody got they cups, but they ain't chipped in
Now this type of shit happens all the time
You got to get yours but fool I gotta get mine
Everything is fine when you listening to the D-O-G
I got the cultivating music that be captivating he
Who listens to the words that I speak
As I take me a drink to the middle of the street
And get to mackin' to this bitch named Sadie (Sadie?)
She used to be the homeboy's lady (Oh, that bitch)
80 degrees, when I tell that bitch please
Raise up off these N-U-T's, cause you gets none of these, at ease
As I mob with the Dogg Pound, feel the breeze
Beyotch I'm just

[Verse 1: Snoop Dogg]
With so much drama in the L-B-C
It's kinda hard being Snoop D-O-double-G
But I - somehow, some way
Keep coming up with funky ass shit like every single day
May I, kick a little something for the G's? (yeah)
And make a few ends as (yeah!) I breeze through
2 in the morning and the party's still jumping
Cause my momma ain't home
I got bitches in the living room getting it on
And they ain't leaving til 6 in the morning
So what you wanna do? Sheeeit
I got a pocket full of rubbers and my homeboys do too
So turn off the lights and close the doors
But (but what) we don't love them hoes, yea
So we gonna smoke a ounce to this
G's up, hoes down, while you motherfuckas bounce to this

Keep my eyes on my foes, those close to me Catchin Feelins by 2Pac (Ft. Outlawz)

An interpolation of the phrase, “Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.”

Fun fact: Some have attributed this famous saying to Machiavelli in his political treatise, “The Prince.” Others would like to say that it was Sun Tzu who said these words first. No published sources have been found about who originated the quote, but it looks like Pac did his research on the man from which he got his newer stage name before he died.

Always keep my eyes on the prize, watch the police Heavy In The Game by 2Pac (Ft. Richie Rich)

“Eyes on the prize” simply refers to maintaining a focus to achieve a positive end result.

However, this particular line has a historical context: it is a reference to the folk song, “Eyes on the Prize.” It became influential during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement when lyrics were added to the pre-World-War-I hymn in 1956 by civil rights activist Alice Wine.

With regard to the subsequent phrase, “watch the police,” watch a visual representation of what occurred during the Civil Rights Movement with the song playing in the background:

(The noted 1987 PBS documentary series about the Civil Rights Movement, Eyes on the Prize, was named for the song, as well.)

[Hook: Cutty]
What it is ho, what's up
Can a nigga get in them guts
Cut you up like you ain't been cut
Show your ass how to really catch a nut
Well give me you number and I'll call
And I'll follow that ass in the mall
Take you home, let you juggle my balls
While I'm beating and tearing down your walls
Some Cut by Trillville (Ft. Cutty)

For more on the meaning behind these lyrics, feel free to look at the annotations in Tiara Thomas’s verse on her solo version of, “Bad”.

Ride around bumping Kendrick Lamar, the homies
Looking for a great time, never mind ya'll police-ass niggas
Pinky Ring by Statik Selektah (Ft. Prodigy)

Referring to Kendrick’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City track, “The Art of Peer Pressure

This couplet may particularly be referencing the part of the story in the song where Kendrick and his homies luckily lose the cops in a police chace.… you know, the part where you hear sirens in the background.
