I'm going to warn you in advance that Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw's video game reviews are as funny as they are offensive. To put it another way if you think Chino XL's punchlines go too far then this probably isn't the game reviewer for you. In a world of mind-numbing politeness though his unapologetically rude "this game is s--te" crassness not only sticks out like a sore thumb, it sticks that thumb straight up your ass until you're either laughing or crying. I found myself mostly laughing which is why I thought I'd share my ten favorites with the rest of you lot.
I can think of at least five things to do if Trump fires Robert Mueller.
1.) Celebrate the beginning of President Cheetohead's demise.
2.) Call your House and/or Senate representative and demand they hold him accountable. We need more than six Democrats this time, including all those Republicans who warned Trump not to cross this "red line." Both sides of the aisle need to get on board this train.
3.) Protest! Protest because the same man who vowed to "drain the swamp" has instead taken all that swamp water and built a moat around the White House, using his own racist bile to refill it regularly.
4.) Call everyone you know - even your Trump loving friends (if you still have any). Remind them of what happened the last time a sitting President tried to fire every single person looking into his misdeeds. Tell them it's time to get rid of the unstable mental midget at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
5.) Pop some champagne. The long nightmare is finally coming to its inexorable end.
This week's WSIB was inspired by March Madness, that wonderful time of year with a gigantic bracket of 64 teams (or in more recent years 64 + a "First Four" of play-in teams) playing college basketball at the highest levels. For those with basketball dreams but lame jump shots like me, it's a vicarious thrill to watch Jordan Poole hit an incredibly long three with time expiring to save his team from the "lose one and you're done" elimination format. As I watched this and other miraculous victories over the weekend, I was reminded of a now obscure hip-hop track about balling wit'cha sneaks on that had a sweet "Wild Flower" sample by the group Creative Source. You can hear the original track in the player below.
The b-ball song that I like may not be the one that you like though - it's just one of several different songs that flip it up, switch it up, and smack it around to get that hip-hop sound. Check out these "Wild Flower" contenders and then scroll down to pick which one you like better!
1.) Akrobatik f/ Chuck D - "Kindred"
2.) Saigon f/ Dead Prez - "Nobody Cares"
3.) Wu All-Stars - "Soul in the Hole"
Here's your chance to vote! Pick one of the three on Twitter. Only one can advance.

21 Savage-Cosigned SG Tip Mobs with Smokepurpp and Yung Bans on "Push Up," Announces Mixtape
A.T.: Atlanta's SG Tip Announces Block Boy Tip Mixtape, Releasing March 28th
Affiliated with 21 Savage's Slaughter Gang, the Rising Rapper Shares "Push Up," a Vibey New Single with Yung Bans and Smokepurpp via Pigeons & Planes
With a more energetic twist on his mentor 21 Savage's menacing nonchalance, ATL rapper SG Tip is making moves to the top of the game. Following up his surprise hit N*gga With Ambition (NWA), SG Tip announces Block Boy Tip, his upcoming mixtape. Packed with low-key, street-savvy bangers, Block Boy Tip is a cathy chronicle of Tip's lightning quick come-up. With production from Trellgotwings, Tre Trax, J Rich, DJ Marc B (21 Savage’s Official DJ), Block Boy Tip releases on March 28th.
Affiliated with the 21 Savage's Slaughter Gang since age 11, SG Tip's career hit a speed bump when legal problems landed him in juvenile hall for his last years of high school. Now 18, Tip is on the fast track to stardom, touring with 21 Savage within months of exiting juvie, working with superstar producers like Metro Boomin and Pi'erre Bourne, and earning over 1 million plays on his video "No Brain."
Today, SG Tip shares "Push Up," a hypnotic banger bursting with off-kilter charisma and infectious ad-libs. Featuring appearances from Smokepurpp, who supplies the hook, and Yung Bans, who lends the track an airy melody in his anchor verse, "Push Up" is a testament to SG Tip's songwriting ability and burgeoning influence on the ATL scene. Premiered by Pigeons & Planes, who praised the track saying, "Purpp comes through with an off-kilter earworm of a hook, and Bans closes things out with a breathy, barely-there verse that takes the track in a whole new direction," "Push Up" is a brilliant first look at Block Boy Tip.

SG Tip is a new rapper that hails from East Atlanta, Georgia. He has very close ties to Slaughter Gang and PDE, dating back to when he was 11 to 12 years old. At the age of 15, Tip had several legal issues which landed him in juvenile hall and caused him to miss his latter years of high school. After his releaserelease from juvie, Tip hit the road with 21 Savage and started to soak up game from the rising rapper. Less than one year ago, after coming off tour with 21, Tip began his career as an artist and has since quickly gained a following with great expectations for his upcoming music. His debut mixtape, NWA, a collaboration project with Tip and Pierre Bourne, dropped in October 2017. Accompanying NWA were visuals "Looking For Me", "Gangland" and a single "No Brains" produced by Metro Boomin. NWA laid the foundation for Tip's career and his follow up Block Boy Tip is looking to make big waves upon its release March 2018.
