Speaker 1:

I appreciate you baby, Appreciate you, but you know what that leads into. One of my first questions I have for this year is what was the best dad gifts that you got over the holidays, Because y'all know we cut off right before Christmas.

Speaker 2:

We start off with you. We start off with you. For me we go under the North All right, let me see.

Speaker 1:

That's what's up. All right, let me give you a quick run of the show, because we running off already and we didn't even give you all the agenda for today, so I'm going to do a little tech talk today. Okay, I had you know, like I'm saying, like our podcast is really getting you know out there in the streets and a lot of people are reaching out to us and letting us know some love. So big shout outs to them, Big shout outs. But one of the requests that came in through you know, asking everybody to let me know what y'all want me to talk about was they wanted me to talk about some IT technical certifications that y'all should be pursuing or keeping your purview for 2024. So I'm going to talk a little bit about my journey, my journey of getting certifications, how I was able to level up, but also some of the certifications I would recommend for this year. And then we got D Hustle with some quick news we're going to have a segment for Raymond's nuggets Woo, Raymond's got some good nuggets coming up. And then we're going to have D Hustle come back up on stage, talk about some sports current events and big shout outs to our sponsors. Definitely want to send all our love to our sponsors. Hope y'all had a great holiday and real quick plug D Hustle If y'all, if they need to, you know, get on our sponsorship. How about you right, you, the guy right, Don't be scared. No doubt, no doubt, and then I'll close it out at the end. How's that sound for the show fellas?

Speaker 2:

Sounds good to me.

Speaker 1:

You think the audience ready for it? I like it. Yeah, let's give it a round of applause, let's see, let's go with it All right D Hustle, drop some music real quick so I can get on to this tech talk real quick.

Speaker 2:

All right, let's get it dirty.

Speaker 1:

Man, I missed this from last year, bringing it back. That's what I'm talking about. Thank you so much, d Hustle, for that intro music, and I'm going to jump right into it and talk a little bit about certifications, my journey and, in general, inspire you to pursue something that could ultimately open up opportunities for you to level up in this field of technology, specifically around systems engineering and a little bit about software engineering. And we're also going to talk about cloud, because I've been doing some research as of late in cloud engineering. I mean, it's a skill set that everybody should be developing. But more specifically, so what are certifications? So certifications are a way for individuals to showcase their skill sets, either in a testing form where you're answering ABC type questions, or in an exam where you actually have to show your work, like, hey, I need you to set up this system to do XYZ, or I need you to set up a virtual instance inside of AWS or GCP and so on and so forth, and if you're able to successfully be able to do that, then you get certified. Now, these certifications are extremely important, especially if you don't have, let's say, the four year degree or two year schooling in general. But if you have certification. It gives employers information about what skill sets you bring to the table. And the reason why I really like talking about certification is I don't know if y'all know, but I got in the industry off of certifications. I didn't really attend a four year college, get you know a four year degree. Actually, raymond and I both attended, you know, two year technical school and certifications was one of the main things by attending this technical school, which I kind of compared to like a boot camp nowadays I know boot camps are a little smaller groups, maybe as less informal as a technical program and or vocational school program, but I would say it's close to it and very similar. But one of the key things about attending the school was that they really pushed this idea of ensuring that you got certifications before you graduated quote unquote or finished a program. And I don't know about you, raymond, but for me that's how I leveled up in the industry off Rip.

Speaker 3:

Oh, yeah, no, I what, like you said, you and I. I mean, I remember when me and Bobby was going through this journey, we used to have contest on getting certifications and Bobby surpassed me. But yeah, no, yeah, no, we definitely. I would not have gotten my first IT job without certification, Like you said yeah, I'm sure you can get in the door by having the certification. I can kind of bypass the experience at times. So now I'm looking at middle schools with my son to apply for choice schools in the middle schools. Now, bobby, they're giving these kids the certifications. That's what's up for building a website, even cybersecurity literally in middle school, like if my son goes to the specific middle school, he can get certification on either web design or cybersecurity. That's what's up. Big shout out.

Speaker 2:

So I'm talking about yes, no doubt.

Speaker 1:

And the thing about certifications is like you said, there is no age limit. You can take it whenever. Cost entry into it is not going to be thousands of dollars, you are going to spend at universities and maybe not even working that field, but you're specifically niched into this technology or the skill set and then you walk away with something validating your ability to be an engineer, administrator or whatever services you're basically getting certified in. But yeah, big shout out to you. So the question that came out from my mentee was like, hey, what certifications did I get? And what certifications, if I had a chance to start over what I really focus on? So, as Rainn mentioned, we were like chasing these certifications and one of the first ones that we've got and one that I highly recommend, even if you're into writing code or building computers or just trying to step your foot into the tech administration, systems administration, cloud DevOps and any of those skill sets around systems engineering is the A plus. You've heard of that plus. Yes, sir, comptia A plus certification. So you heard of that one before? Yeah, for sure. And that certification is an entry level certification that basically teaches you about computers from the bottom up. And the real cool thing about this certification is that, as somebody like me that's been in the industry for a while, it's one of the most frustrating things when I'm talking to somebody else that doesn't have that basic understanding about computers and how they work, and this certification can definitely help close that void. Now, that was one of my very first certifications. This is all the way back in 2001. So I'm telling my age a little bit in 2001.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, so, speaking of that, yeah, I remember you got your A plus, I got my A plus, so we're grandfathered. And now, if you take the A plus, bobby, you have to like kind of re-certify every two to three years. Oh word, you and I are grandfathered, we don't have to.

Speaker 1:

I'm all right because I got a few gray hairs here, so I'm good with that. But the next certification that I got, after the A plus, was something called the network plus by CompTIA also. Now, if you don't know about these certifications, comptia is one of the providers for these certifications and I'll definitely check out their website. We'll have it in the podcast chat room on Discord and definitely check out all of the offerings they have, because they have a network plus. I took the Linux plus. They also have a security plus, especially if you're interested in getting to cybersecurity. But all of these certifications are entry level certifications. Price range between $250 to $400 to take that exam. Now, if you compare that to going to a college university, I mean I'm willing to drop $250 to $500 to level up any day. So definitely something to take into consideration.

Speaker 3:

You know, definitely agree. That is probably the most cost effective way to prove yourself if you're, yeah, I agree.

Speaker 1:

Yeah yeah, for sure, for sure. Now, once you get those and I'm going to label them entry level, but they're really just foundational certifications Don't think that you can't get an opportunity with them. But I would recommend you continuing to level up and take it to the next level, because, for me, I did the A plus, as mentioned, network plus and also something called the Linux plus because I wanted to be in a Linux administration. I don't know if you remember, raymond, when we were in school, we were mostly focusing on Microsoft as being an operating system that we focused on and or we got certified in. But Linux was something that if I were able to learn it, I would be able to step it up even more because I'm doing something that nobody else is doing right, correct. So following that path to get Linux plus just opened up opportunities for me to really ascend as high as working at a company like Twitter, because I pursued that. So if anything I could recommend is try to do some certifications on things that nobody else wants to learn, or touch right Network devices. There's a CCNA databases, learning how databases work. Obviously, I'm talking about systems engineering and systems administration but find a niche that nobody else really wants to mess with and level up?

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I definitely agree with you that I wish I would have took in the Linux plus. It scared me, so I went the route of what everybody else was doing. Yeah, I mean I didn't get to work at Twitter like you, but you know that's what I worked out.

Speaker 1:

That's all right, man, hey, I bring it all back so that if I got it, we all got it, type stuff. You know what I'm saying? No, yes, maybe. So, yeah, ram is like I didn't get all the stocks and stuff like that. He was talking about that earlier. I didn't get all that. Now, listen, but the knowledge that we, that I, gained by working there that's definitely the reason why I'm creating and working on this tech hustle community is that I want to be able to give this knowledge that I gained working at a place like Twitter and also getting certified in a few things. What's up, raymond?

Speaker 3:

And one more thing to growing up. I don't know if you remember this, but there is a certification magazine. Remember that. Yeah, what was it called?

Speaker 1:

PC magazine. You ever heard of that one?

Speaker 3:

I don't remember what it was called, but yeah, I don't know if it's even still around, but there used to be a certification magazine that me and Bobby would read up on it and tell you what the hottest certifications are. Yeah, I'm not a web based now, but that is, you know, just something, just thrown it out there.

Speaker 1:

So resources that you, that you definitely be doing some research on knowledge.

Speaker 2:

That's what my man was giving me.

Speaker 1:

It's the knowledge, Raymond do not call me Raymond D hustle. You've done some certifications before right. What certifications?

Speaker 2:

you worked on. I had the day plus at the, my SAP.

Speaker 1:

That's what's up. So that's the cool thing about our crew here is that everybody has open skill sets. Like D hustle is talking about SAP, which is a world renowned system that a lot of Fortune 500 company uses, and getting certified in that skill set opens up opportunities for you. So a big shout out to anybody working on SAP basis SAP. But I have a list of a few certifications after you get the A plus, network plus and those foundational certifications to consider pursuing. One of those that I definitely want to throw out there is anything with the word cloud in it. I was doing some research and yo cloud engineers, cloud administrators, cloud entry level positions for cloud technologists are, well over some time, a hundred figures or a hundred thousand dollars. I'm like yo, this is really like impacting our community directly, especially if you can get a certification and level up, and now you got in a check, for you know making more than a hundred thousand dollars a year. Why not take the opportunity and the certifications the range of two hundred and fifty five hundred dollars why not? So what would be those certifications? So a certifications in AWS, which is Amazon Web Services, certifications in Google Cloud and Microsoft certifications. I know we kind of was talking about Microsoft certifications before, but Microsoft cloud certifications will be something for you all to consider. Now for me, my certifications in the cloud industry. I didn't really so I started off before the cloud exists. So I have a certification in something called VMware, which is like a foundational platform to actually host and run your cloud inside of your company. But that certification itself definitely opened up opportunities for me. But if I were to put a crown on the certification, that really just leveled up all of my opportunities and really did open the door for me to work at a company like Twitter it's actually a Red Hat certification.

Speaker 2:

Y'all heard of that Red.

Speaker 1:

Hat. Yes, big shout outs to Red Hat. I'm hoping to pull up one. I'm seeing them at Afro Tech last year. So, red Hat, big shout outs to you and definitely big shout outs to everybody I know over there. But in general, there's a certification called a Red Hat certified engineer R-H-C-E. Yo, when I got that doors opened, forget about it. Forget about it, kid, because that was one of those that you actually had to prove yourself, not just answer A, b and C. They actually gave you a computer, gave you a list of things to do. I'll be back in four hours and then I'm going to check if you did it. If you were able to successfully do it, you got certified. If you couldn't tread water and you couldn't do it, try again next time.

Speaker 3:

Forget about it. That's pretty intense.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, it's definitely intense, but I would say it's probably by far the most valuable certification I got, because it really just gave me a chance to level up.

Speaker 3:

Yeah. Now what's impressive about those certifications are there is no faking. Those you really have to prove and show that you know what you're doing.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, for sure, 100%, and that's the cool thing about it is that you do have to prove yourself to showcase what you're doing, and definitely want to inspire people to pursue those type of things.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, because if you don't have my money, it's going to be trouble.

Speaker 1:

It's definitely going to be some trouble, all right. So any other certifications you want to throw out there that you'll think the audience should know about? We're talking about CompTIA A+. We talk about some CCNA, that's a Cisco certified network associates Security Plus. There are definitely some foundational certifications from Microsoft, but since I've been doing research online, anything AWS, gcp, cloud engineering oh my gosh, you're just definitely level Just passed one too that I was trying to get that right now just for Krabs and giggles.

Speaker 3:

number six CompTIA fundamentals, that's another one that is just like the A+ if you're just a basic certification. It just kind of gives you the overview of computers and all that. So yeah, For sure.

Speaker 1:

I like to use the beginning level I see how they even redefine it rather than basic, but they are foundational certifications and I definitely want to encourage everybody to pursue that. But big shout out to my mentee, real. Real. Really appreciate you following along number one and then number two, throwing in questions for me to answer or what you should be focusing on. 2024 to level up Other than that, that's it. That's what I'm talking about.

Speaker 2:

Before we end this session here, I just want to give everybody a heads up. If you need help with this, don't hesitate to email us, to send us a message. We can get you up to that level. I'll freaking playing around because what I do is I give a lot of fire, my guy, you know. Take care, you guys 100%.

Speaker 1:

Thank you so much. D House will remind them, because we are building the community where we're going to turn this into a multi-billion dollar companies. I mean, it's only going to be y'all that are going to be joining us, especially if you day ones like you are today. So big shout out to you Very much. Appreciate you All. Right, d House. I think we're moving on to the next section, and you know what? This time around, I think I got a little bit of intro music for you.

Speaker 2:

Let me see what we got.

Speaker 1:

Let me see, let me see, let me see.

Speaker 2:

We here live WPGNY D. House with the breaking news let's go Well. Today, ladies and gentlemen, sony reveals a stand-alone MR headset with 4K LED display and unique controllers.

Speaker 1:

So Sony's getting into this VR game now. Yes, sir, oh my gosh.

Speaker 2:

I just put that on the Discord there so everybody can see. Now, here's this thing with this. It has a 4K LED screen. The headset has yet a name, but the company says it's aimed at creative building 3D content and will launch this year. Ooh, here's the thing. There's no price on it yet.

Speaker 1:

No price Okay that scares me, that's what scares me.

Speaker 2:

That's what basically scares me. But talking about that, I don't know of you, because now there's a lot of competition in these VRs. So, Sony is doing a VR. You know now Apple has doing a VR. I think we discussed about this last time. Apple tells developers not to call the AR or VA apps or VR apps. But this right here. I don't know if you remember talking about this here.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah we had it in our newsletter.

Speaker 3:

What's the difference between AR or VR? Can someone educate me on that?

Speaker 1:

So we have virtual reality and artificial reality. That is correct. I think virtual reality and artificial reality is like merging the two together, where you having like a virtual experience, but also you can have a real world experience while being virtual type thing. So you can almost like see through your glasses and get a virtual experience.

Speaker 2:

Extended reality is XR and mixed reality is MR.

Speaker 1:

Interesting, interesting, all right, this is getting crazy, no doubt.

Speaker 2:

Well, I'm not just saying that. The crazy is is it comes out February 2nd, like you were saying earlier, raymond. There are having some pre-orders, if not correct.

Speaker 3:

Yes, the Apple, the Apple, yeah, yeah, apple, yes.

Speaker 2:

Apple Vision Pro actually Yep and the price is ready 3,495 dollars.

Speaker 1:

Hold on, hold on, hold on. Say that again 3,495 dollars.

Speaker 2:

All right, I don't know about that. Well here's the thing what Apple says you ready? Apple says it's a it's. The price is likely to attract highly motivated buyers. Just to give you a heads up, interesting.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, but three grand.

Speaker 2:

Almost four grand.

Speaker 3:

That's the price of a used car For sure.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, yeah, but I want to add something else to it Now that we was talking last podcast. If you guys heard the last podcast, Tune in my man Raymond said he had those Ray bands, right? Oh yeah, yes, guess. What's coming up now is called Desi Design Boom.

Speaker 1:

Oh, throw it in the podcast, let's see what's in there? Design Boom. Oh my gosh, these are more glasses.

Speaker 2:

These are glasses. Yeah, All right, Actually these are X-Rail debuts. Titanium AR glasses that physically objects into digital items CES of 2024.

Speaker 1:

Oh, CES 2024. We're going to have to go there. Ces is that big conference.

Speaker 2:

You scroll down you see the glasses how it looks.

Speaker 1:

Ah, look at that.

Speaker 2:

Just like the Ray bands that Raymond was talking about.

Speaker 1:

That includes AR technology. Wow, that's interesting.

Speaker 2:

And there's only $700.

Speaker 3:

$699. Only $700.

Speaker 2:

I have never understand why people put $699. You can just put a flat 700. What's the 99? I think it's just a mental thing.

Speaker 1:

Just to thank you, saving a penny, a dollar, but these things look actually really amazing. This actually, you remember, at the end of our conversation I was doing North Star thinking and I was like, hey, eventually Metta's going to merge the Oculus with the Ray band so that you can have that one type of experience. Look at this, they already freaking doing it, man, that's crazy yeah.

Speaker 3:

I mean that's wow. Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Well, that's amazing.

Speaker 2:

If you left Raymond speechless as well, I'll take it. I'll take it.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I mean I like the Ray band prices better. Those are like what? $300, $400?. Yeah, actually, just to tell you, when we was down in Orlando we went to an event.

Speaker 1:

I walked by a Ray band store and I checked them out. Oh, they're there. Yeah, yeah, they're there. They look kind of fly, though, and they look really like the regular Ray bands. Okay, they're really thin slim looking. I mean I was trying to convince the wifey to get it, but you know she wasn't ready for it.

Speaker 2:

Get it for her for you, which one is it?

Speaker 1:

I was trying to get it so that we could get it together, type stuff, but it's actually for me.

Speaker 3:

She wasn't falling for it, she wasn't falling for it.

Speaker 2:

She was like I'm going to buy the other one.

Speaker 1:

She was like the camera's always on. I was like, but don't worry about that. But yeah, this is fire, though I'm excited to see what the industry brings up. I mean 2024,. These type of technology are only going to get better, though.

Speaker 2:

So Sony has an like a AR apples having one, and then now you have these glasses.

Speaker 3:

So question for D hustle which one do I go with? Because I already have the quest. Now You're telling me Sony's coming out with something.

Speaker 2:

I mean well, we already know apples 3000 and some change.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, that's.

Speaker 2:

Sony. It's a really good brand, I know because we got the PlayStation. Some people have TV. I'm assuming they're going to be right behind or maybe even right next to Apple. As far as that, I don't know. I would really have to try Sony's out first before I can give you the details. Actually I got to try Apple and Sony. I'm not going to buy them, I'm going to try them out exactly at the store. Yeah, that's funny. It's crazy. I'll make my decision from there. Or if you guys have any? If you guys have them or not, give us a shout out, Let us know.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I mean, bobby, you have the quest, don't you?

Speaker 2:

Well, my son does Not me, okay, I have to say well, I can just cross right. Yeah, yeah, I have that one.

Speaker 3:

So we all here have the quest. Now we are, you know, deciphering. Do we need to get or go? Look at these new ones coming out this season.

Speaker 2:

Well, I like Quest's price, so I do too, yeah.

Speaker 1:

And that's where they're going to be able to, you know, really kill the market with that and that the Apple's one, or Vision Pro. Does that mean that they have a less lesser one that has?

Speaker 2:

my thing with these Oculus. Hmm, sony already came out with one, yeah, one, better came out first, and you know, hopefully they don't come out to be like phones that after every year new one comes out, yeah. That defeats my purpose of buying one. Correct, you know. So if Sony has theirs and it said the next one's going to be like a car because I don't know if you guys know, every every four years a new model comes out for cars so if they treat it like that, then I don't have no problem with it. Or if they treat it like the PlayStation after so many years, right, the new one comes out, then I'll you know, I'll buy it.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, something to look at Something to look at.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, that's interesting, all right, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Oh, I forgot to ask you did you guys see what happened with the airlines, the airplane?

Speaker 1:

Oh my gosh, yo literally turn that fire alarm on. That's some crazy stuff, and tell us about it. D hustle.

Speaker 2:

Man, I from some, from what I was advised, I guess Alaska Airlines. They were lifting off. They had, at least they boarded 737 max on the public security several years following multiple crashes and mound functions for these airlines for that specific one, right Pacific. Wow, so they had 610. That killed 189 people in Indiana, Minneapolis. Now, basically what they're trying to do. So did you know what happened? They forgot to latch the door.

Speaker 1:

Oh so this is the.

Speaker 2:

Alaska.

Speaker 3:

Airlines, alaska Airlines. Wow, so they forgot to latch the door.

Speaker 2:

It wasn't like a malfunction Yep, a malfunction after, after 10 minutes Taking off, taking off, but everybody safe, good, good and you know that is crazy.

Speaker 1:

So basically a plane. Imagine sitting on a plane taking off. You already nervous about the takeoff and then 10 minutes and the door, the, the, the, the what is it called? The exit road door Right Buses off and yeah, you imagine if you're sitting right next to it.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, that's scary. I think I saw something on the internet where it said those spots were empty. The people obviously they got sick or something. Yeah, you know they didn't get on the flight that day, uh huh.

Speaker 1:

So imagine, because I always used to try to get into the exit road Cause it's the best leg room. Until they stopped making the exit road being able to lean back, I used to always do exit roll. But imagine that that's crazy. Yeah, all I'm thinking about is movies getting sucked out of the airplane, or something like that.

Speaker 3:

That's terrifying. Yeah, I don't want to sit by the window anymore.

Speaker 1:

You know, boeing needs to get this thing under control though, cause that 737, like you said, it had an accident earlier and I'm telling you, I fly all the time, so I like to just not even think about it, but now it's got me thinking. Every time I get on that thing, I'm going to be checking the door, I'm going to be, I'm going to be like the flight attendant, giving them the final check. Yes, the door looks locked.

Speaker 3:

That's some final destination stuff right there oh my gosh Before I give the mic to my man, Raymond.

Speaker 2:

what's up? I call me Ray Ray Jeb Blue. What's up? Oh, steps down.

Speaker 3:

Speaker 2:

He's anxious right now.

Speaker 1:

I was going to say big shout out to remember we don't have no financial advice here. We're not no financial advisor, blah blah, blah, blah blah. But Bitcoin I don't know if y'all know Bitcoin. You guys have a guy to get it. You better get some. You better put some in your wallet, hold it down, but Bitcoin is about to be offered on the US stock exchange.

Speaker 3:

Wow.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and it's going to be under something called an ETF that companies like BlackRock, arc Invest and some other companies are going to be able to accept like stock type transactions to purchase Bitcoins. I don't know if y'all have been following along, but this is basically the transition from something that's only been used by novel people like technologists and techies that are really into tech and know about Coinbase and stuff like this, and moving more into the mass where everybody's going to be able to access it. Just keep your ears on these streets, keep your eyes open.

Speaker 2:

Why don't you be heard? There's a couple companies that if you don't have the money, they take Bitcoin.

Speaker 3:

Really yeah Like American companies or American companies yeah Interesting.

Speaker 1:

Shoot.

Speaker 3:

I remember Tesla was taking Bitcoin at one time for Tesla. Tesla, okay, wow, yeah they're taking Bitcoin. The error is coming bro.

Speaker 2:

Here's my thing. Are you taking fraction of Bitcoin? Are you taking a whole Bitcoin?

Speaker 1:

It's going to be fractions, fractions of.

Speaker 2:

Bitcoin yeah, to buy stuff.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah, they're definitely going to be able to break it down down to those fractional amounts, but big shout outs to Bitcoin. Since 2015, we've been riding with them, right.

Speaker 2:

So let's see what happens. I want to buy a whole one.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I was like, I want a whole coin, a whole coin.

Speaker 2:

Try to buy these fractions.

Speaker 1:

I feel you, though, all right, you ready to queue up my guy? Give it to him again, raymond. Don't call him Ray. Ray, we've got some nuggets coming out for 2024. What's good, man, all right, all right, welcome to 2024, man, yeah, d-hustle gave me like five of them. What's up, man? What's up gentlemen? What's up? What's up, bobby D?

Speaker 3:

What's going on, chillin' man? So some nuggets for you guys here. The first one here I want to preference this and preface this with the website that I'm going to explain here is your website is called HowLong2Beatcom Pause. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa. I want to pause. I'm going to repeat the website is called HowLong2Beatcom and this is specifically for you gamers out there. Okay, thank you for the clarity, yeah, it's basically a gaming website where let's just say that if you want to manage your time and plan it out like me and my son have used this a couple of times it's kind of geared toward like people who like the you know the single mode campaign games which my son loves. So if you want to kind of see how long it's going to take you Bobby D or D Hustle to beat a certain game, you go to this website called HowLong2Beatcom, put it in and it will tell you hey, this is Spider-Man 2, might take you 10 hours or it might take you 20 hours. So it kind of helps you plan your, you know your day out, so you're just, you know, just yeah.

Speaker 1:

It plans how you're gonna binge play.

Speaker 3:

Basically yeah, so yeah.

Speaker 1:

Like can I fit that in my timeframe or not?

Speaker 3:

Yeah, so check it out for you gamers out there, right that's what's up, man? Yeah, I don't know what this person was thinking with the name, but that's a different story.

Speaker 1:

Well, we all know that's why you had to throw a pause. Correct, correct, so all right, all right.

Speaker 2:

Well, Give it to Me. Baby was taken by Rick James. Oh, I don't know. I have to figure something else out.

Speaker 3:

So another nugget here.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, there we go. What up, kid?

Speaker 3:

Is we're all in. You know tech and all that stuff. Do you guys get harassed and stuff by family members? Oh, bobby D or D Hussle, can you fix computers? Can you look at this for me? Do you guys get bombarded with that crap at all All the time?

Speaker 1:

Oh, is it frustrating and annoying? Yes, it is. Yo, I tell people like it's like if something plugs into the wall. They think I know how it works. Like that's crazy it's so annoying. That's how you work, you gotta plug it in.

Speaker 2:

That's where we start right.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, sex messages emails from cousins over. Hey, Rami, can you fix computers? Can you look at this? Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 2:

My favorite one is if you can't come here, please FaceTime me. Yeah, you know Like what.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, why? Yeah, that's crazy, but what happened? You had an incident happen. Kid yeah, all the time.

Speaker 3:

You know I'm always looking at computers for people and stuff like that, so obviously you know when you are doing this stuff. So I wanted to give you guys a little website to check out. It's or it's. Yeah, it's a website. It's called NineNet. So it's called NineNet and this is strictly for Windows computers, because I figured you know the people that we deal with, you know mostly strictly for Windows. So, basically, if you're working on someone's computer and you know how you got to do the fresh install and everything, if you check out this site called NineNet, it's great for fresh installs. Basically, you pick the apps that you want to install and you can pick multiple apps at once and it does a fresh install. It does it with no toolbars or anything. That's what's up. Yeah, so you go on here, you check this out. You worked on one of your friends or your cousins or your mother-in-law's computer. You go check out this site called NineNet and you just pick multiple apps and it does a fresh install at apps no toolbars, none of that junk or nothing like that. So that's a little nugget I wanted to give you guys NineNet.

Speaker 1:

So check it out. Thank you so much, man. Yeah, it's a nugget. That's what's up. You know that task of managing other people's computers have given me so many gray hairs man so frustrating. So frustrating and one of the things that I even just talking about this website is a fresh install is always sometime better than trying to fix what they had going on.

Speaker 3:

Oh yeah, I just yeah. Don't even waste your time with all the junk they probably have on there. So yeah, For sure, yeah, so All right, raymond.

Speaker 1:

Well, happy New Year's man and thank you for the nuggets man, nuggets.

Speaker 2:

So. Next thing up Google CEO Eric Schmerz. You heard of him.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that's the XCEO, xceo, correct.

Speaker 2:

I apologize on my behalf. Xceo, you know he's working on a military drone project.

Speaker 3:

What no?

Speaker 2:

Interesting. That's what I said. Wow, a military drone. This is Forbes. So Forbes tells real shit. Yeah, yeah. And also military X, a secret military drone project. My man is doing something. The billionaire has been planning to cover ventures inspired by Ukraine's use of drones on battlefields with help of Google. Sebastian Stern.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I don't know how I feel about that. That's like getting into that robotized military. Like I don't agree with that bro. Like you can spend your billions on something else man.

Speaker 2:

I mean, if he needs to work with it out, he can give it to me. I'm not going to do that.

Speaker 1:

He also said I'll find something to do with it and if he needs some assistance with it, I'm more than happy.

Speaker 2:

Listen. This next subject. I want to tell everybody to calm down. Listen, I know Stanley's going crazy with these damn new drones. This thing is wild, though. You guys got to stop it. This is not a pierced Jordan's OK.

Speaker 1:

There's an overnight line.

Speaker 2:

There's no need for you to freaking camp out for a freaking Stanley Cup. Wow, it's a Stanley Cup, a $30 thing. You can go to anywhere. You don't have to get the pink one.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, yeah, just stop being real.

Speaker 2:

Let's be realistic guys.

Speaker 3:

Come on. What's the lore with this? I mean, what's the hype?

Speaker 2:

So I don't know if you heard or seen a long time ago a young lady has a Stanley Cup, was going to work or whatever was in her house. Whatever the case may be, this was a while ago. The car catches on fire. Ok, had a Stanley Cup in there, did not get burned down.

Speaker 1:

Wow, here's the catch.

Speaker 2:

Here's where everybody goes crazy. It was still ice in the cup.

Speaker 1:

Wildfire. Wow, oh Wow. Stanley got a good product, though that's what it is Yep.

Speaker 3:

That is what it is.

Speaker 2:

So CEO or president bought the lady a brand new car and he said it on air this is my only time I'm going to go hand rebuy somebody a car. This is, if you guys decide to burn your car down again, I am not going to pay for it. I'm not going to pay for it. So shout out to that person who got a brand new car because of their Stanley Cup. Shout out to Stanley. That's a killer product.

Speaker 1:

If you think about it, and the ice was still in there after the car broke down. Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, so one of them going on eBay for like $900.

Speaker 1:

That is crazy.

Speaker 3:

This is a special Valentine's Day one.

Speaker 2:

No more than $150.

Speaker 1:

For me no more than going to Ross, and it better be $30. You know that's not fair.

Speaker 2:

Wow, what else? Oh, I don't have a lot of details here before I get into sports, because I know Ray Minneson.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, he's queued up, he's ready, he's ready, he's ready.

Speaker 2:

Oh, not, did you? Let me brush this one real quick, if I can get to it.

Speaker 1:

I want to see what you got.

Speaker 2:

I have. I don't know if you've seen there was a Miami shooting going on. I guess they've seen some type of alien.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

In the mall or something like that. I don't have real footage or anything like that, but I'm going to put here on the discord here exactly what happened. So if you guys want to read up on it, it'll see exactly what's going on yeah, that's sub.

Speaker 1:

So was in Bayside this time, yeah this is an alien Miami malls.

Speaker 2:

After curious New Year day video it has a little clip on there if you guys want to see. It was a big humongous thing. Everybody was running. I guess Miami mall alien is called that is crazy.

Speaker 1:

You know anything about this, yeah.

Speaker 3:

I mean, I know the fellows were talking about this intensively in the group chat. So allegedly, they're saying that everybody's phones and the camera stop working. I mean, yeah, the guys have been talking about this heavily. They are convinced that it's a cover up. So I don't know. So yeah, we need some more information. Yeah, we need to. I mean, I even saw our former president Trump talking about this too. He was even tweeting about this.

Speaker 1:

I mean, let me tell you, I will say that they've given us enough movies to prepare us for moments like this. Is there other beings that could potentially present themselves now and not actually cause a World War III or World War IV? This might be the opportune time, but this is definitely kind of weird.

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I mean. What about? The police are saying it was kids, though it was teenagers?

Speaker 1:

I mean, but they had guns drawn out. I heard that there may have been shots fired and stuff like that.

Speaker 3:

So yeah, I mean that was a lot of cops. So I mean, yeah, it's interesting.

Speaker 1:

So interesting, interesting. Well, welcome if you can. If you tuned into the tech hustle was good with you. Oh yeah, we're supporting.

Speaker 3:

Nine days into the new year, we got aliens.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that's wild, though that's wild.

Speaker 2:

I was a vibe. My wife told me that you can go into the government website and see if there's really an alien. They had that page block. Now you're able to go in and see all this stuff.

Speaker 3:

I don't know how accurate that is, because I never went in. Yeah, they released it finally, yeah.

Speaker 1:

They've been releasing a lot of stuff because technically, the government has to release things after a certain time frame or if people ask for it.

Speaker 2:

Shit, I just want to know who killed JFK oh man.

Speaker 1:

That's all I want to look into. That's another story. That's a whole other story, right there.

Speaker 2:

But anyway, let's get back to my man, raymond. Give me a little beat real quick. Let me a little beat for this special bulletin. Going on. You want some more breaking news, some breaking news, some breaking news. Wbgny, we're here live With Raymond, don't call me Ray Ray. Before I get to Miami, Dolphins, here for your special basketball. John Moran goes on the he's out for the year.

Speaker 3:

Wow, wow, seriously.

Speaker 2:

What, what's? Some 25 game suspension Came back. I don't know, because I had him in my fantasy. I waited 25 days for this freaking guy to come back yeah, For nine games. After the time he's going to go on the surgery and the year, what happened? His shoulder injury. Actually, a matter of fact, it goes. John Moran will miss the remaining of the year after suffering a liberal tear in his right shoulder.

Speaker 3:

Oh my, that's, terrible.

Speaker 2:

Thank you, john Moran, but fuck you because you did me dirty. I could have been using other people to replace your ass, but it is, lakers are still Lakers. Yeah, yeah yeah. Lebron did a phenomenal dunk.

Speaker 3:

Did you see that I'm poor George? I've seen it. Yeah, but Lakers are trashed out. Wow bro. So who's trash Lakers are trashed out?

Speaker 2:

No, no, no, no. Give him a round of applause. He's listening.

Speaker 3:

Keeping it real.

Speaker 2:

He's listening, he's on the side it took him seven up a steal.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah, he's been tuning in to the tech hustle.

Speaker 3:

That's all right. I'm going to blame the coach, the coaches. You know what man?

Speaker 2:

Typical league. I'm a typical league coach. Listen, I don't know if you realize LeBron's situation is a couple of things happens Order, you get traded in there, or refiring somebody Every team that LeBron goes into. Let's be realistic.

Speaker 3:

Sounds like conspiracy.

Speaker 2:

Kyrie left.

Speaker 1:

Sounds a little conspiracy theory there, he has the ability to create the team he wants around them. Let's be realistic.

Speaker 2:

It's in the beginning of the year he won. The beginning of the year. He said the Cavaliers was an A. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So what he wanted to do big three, they got rid of a lot of players to get that to get that. Yeah, let's be realistic here. After that he left, Went back to Cavaliers A lot of people got fired.

Speaker 1:

Oh, you're talking about Miami to Cavaliers, so you got you.

Speaker 2:

Well, cavaliers to Miami, to Cavaliers, now to the Lakers. For sure, he went to the Lakers, fired People got fired and still can't make nothing happen, is it? The organization was a LeBron.

Speaker 3:

I mean, he's a player, he's not the GM.

Speaker 1:

He's dropping some fire.

Speaker 2:

He's telling people to get rid of people to make his team better, and he's still but, for example, so if they win, all the glory goes to LeBron.

Speaker 3:

Where's the coaching, the coaches? Raymond, are you going to?

Speaker 1:

defend this or not, raymond? I mean, I can't defend it, just think it's a coincidence, that's all.

Speaker 3:

It's just like it's a coincidence. You know what?

Speaker 2:

Next episode I'll do a little bit more research. Yeah, interesting.

Speaker 3:

It's a coincidence. He's a player. He's not the GM.

Speaker 2:

So oh, raymond, next thing, you know he's playing with his son. Yeah no, it's a coincidence, that's all. Is it going to win? So there's not good facts? I don't know.

Speaker 1:

You know I mean dad's data doesn't lie.

Speaker 2:

Play. It does not lie. You know what? While I'm talking about Miami Dolphins, let's get the. Lakers, how do you feel about Miami Dolphins losing to the, to the?

Speaker 1:

I'll take it it's been a very tough end of season for us in the Dolphins, I would give it to you guys.

Speaker 2:

If you guys would have played Pittsburgh, you guys would have won. Well, yeah, but you guys are playing Kansas City Chiefs. That's a tough matchup.

Speaker 1:

Yo, this time of the year is a tough matchup it was a good year for you guys.

Speaker 2:

Let's be realistic now.

Speaker 1:

It was a magnificent the cheater.

Speaker 2:

The cheater will play against his old team and unfortunately there is no question for Andy Reed, for you guys. You guys played Kansas City Chiefs, you guys lost to Kansas City Chiefs. If you guys win, much love to you. But yeah, I don't see you guys win. Wow bro.

Speaker 1:

I'm confident, I'm confident you feel it. Yeah, yeah, I'm feeling.

Speaker 2:

But here's the thing If you guys would have won yesterday against the Bills, you guys would have still had to play the Bills again.

Speaker 1:

That part I don't understand. Yeah, I mean, what was up with that kid?

Speaker 3:

That was a little frustrating, but that's because the Jags lost this weekend.

Speaker 2:

So if the Jags were going to lose and they lost to Titans, yes, crazy.

Speaker 1:

Tennessee Titans.

Speaker 3:

And also speaking of the Titans, because the Dolphins lost to the Titans as well On Monday night a few weeks ago. That burned them as well.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, so that division was crazy.

Speaker 3:

Yeah. So, like D Husser was saying, yeah, if we would have won, we would have had to play.

Speaker 1:

It's almost like baseball, like double hitters, like type stuff. I didn't really catch it.

Speaker 3:

It's terrible so, but I think we have a fighter's chance against KC.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I mean, that's what I'm saying as soon as you get to the playoffs, you got a different type of B. Do you know why I'm seeing you guys going to lose? Well, do you know why? Give us some insights, bro.

Speaker 2:

You guys have a lot of injured players. We do, yeah, we have a lot of injuries If you guys were fully stacked. Nobody's hurt. I don't see, I'll see you guys get hurt.

Speaker 3:

I blame hard knocks. Anybody who goes on that TV show hard knocks is cursed. I blame hard knocks. We should have never been on that stupid show. Oh, thank you, I blame hard knocks. Thank you, hbo. Well, no thanks, hbo. Oh boy.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, man Listen, you guys did a phenomenal. Yeah, I'm very, very impressed Coming from a Giants fan, Very, very very impressed.

Speaker 3:

We made the playoffs. We'll take it. We'll take it. Yeah, we'll take it To us healthy. Yeah, we need to play us.

Speaker 2:

I feel good about it. You guys did phenomenal, but again I mean but we're not out of the game yet that's the thing. No, we're not.

Speaker 1:

And let me tell you. This is where coaching comes in Totally, and this is where we got to step up. This is where we really do look at what we got on the bench and understand all the best plays that we've had and all of all the teams that we have lined up. We've played them already this season, so let's get it.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, much love to you guys. There is a lot of teams just ready. I can't believe Pittsburgh made it and my end, but it is what it is. Miami's doing phenomenal Buffalo Bills got in there by Baltimore. Who do you see winning the championship?

Speaker 3:

I am picking the Ravens, we picked the Ravens. I'm going to go with you. I'm going to get the Ravens.

Speaker 2:

Shout out to the Ravens. I'm my man from Boynton Beach, boynton, the Mod Jackson.

Speaker 1:

South Florida, just in case you guys didn't know, south Florida is always you. I hate all you Cowboys fans.

Speaker 2:

Just to give you guys a heads up. You guys are not going to achieve nothing.

Speaker 3:

So their time is coming. Their time is coming. Don't worry, d-hus, be patient, be patient, be patient, be patient.

Speaker 2:

A team that's really balling that nobody's watching is Detroit Lions.

Speaker 1:

Yes, I'm surprised they even mention them. Yeah, me too. That's crazy.

Speaker 2:

Detroit Lions. We know San Fran is doing their thing. You got the record. What's the record right now?

Speaker 3:

Detroit 11-5. I think they're 11-5.

Speaker 2:

12-5. My apologies, wow, seeing what the shitty Cowboys 12-5. Their time is coming, seeing what. San Fran.

Speaker 3:

San Fran and Ravens are the best teams.

Speaker 1:

Yeah Well, we definitely got some post-season follow-ups that we'll have throughout that season or throughout the show. So make sure you all tune in, because we're going to keep you all posted.

Speaker 2:

And last but not least, before I get on to the next subject here, Bill Belichick might be leaving.

Speaker 1:

I heard Yo. I read something the other day. It almost made me fall out of my chair. It said oh, we're getting ready for the playoffs. And guess who's sitting at home watching it too? Bill Belichick, I was like good lord.

Speaker 2:

I mean, but you got to understand. He doesn't have Tom Brady anymore, he doesn't have Gronk. He has Mac Jones mac and cheese over there that I have no idea he was doing phenomenal. Then they benched the guy.

Speaker 3:

Like question for you, D-Hussel. This has proved the long years of arguments that who was who gets the credit. Was a Brady or was a Belichick? Is this definitive?

Speaker 1:

now that I want to go with Brady, in my opinion I'll go with Brady, okay, I mean, look what he went when he went to Tampa.

Speaker 3:

That's true, that's true, you are correct Tampa won a championship, that's crazy. So it's definitive it was Brady. Oh yeah.

Speaker 2:

Especially, he's got his main target Rob, Rob.

Speaker 1:

I was like I was a touchdown every time in the red zone, guaranteed because I picked up on my family and big shout out to your fantasy row. I heard you know the season and you didn't come out on top, but yeah at least so I have.

Speaker 2:

I'm in three fantasy leagues. I lost all of them just to get that out the way. I came out in fourth place and one of them fifth place in the other and seventh in the other. It was a tough, tough year for me. A lot of injuries. Yeah, yeah I was like I'm not a fan of the team. Yeah, I mean I didn't make it, but at the end of the day, you know, I want still want some money. Yeah, Because of you know, it's the way it's broken down.

Speaker 1:

But like some honorable mention type stuff.

Speaker 2:

You know quarterback going a lot of yards, a lot of receivings.

Speaker 1:

Oh, that's what's up Running back so cool. Well, on to next year. On to next year. You did fantasy right, I did.

Speaker 3:

I sucked.

Speaker 1:

Raymond said I didn't even make it. Make it on the roster.

Speaker 2:

I didn't even make the playoffs, so yeah, I have one more before I pass the mic to my man.

Speaker 1:

Raymond, don't call him what's up, what's up?

Speaker 2:

Did you hear what happened with Kat Williams? Yeah, shannon Sharp.

Speaker 1:

What's that show? Again, it's called club Shae Shae, club Shae.

Speaker 2:

Shae Shannon Sharp and Kat Williams.

Speaker 1:

Yo, kat Williams has literally broken the internet. You too is really flipped upside down. But is it facts? That's the thing that I think a lot of people are starting to question. But before we even dive into the content, big shout outs to Ankh. This, right here, is a prime example of how far our voices can go when we're given the right light, given the right presence. They have 37 million views in five days. Big shout outs to them, and the content we'll get into. But big shout outs to Ankh Shannon and definitely big, big ups to Kat Williams, because he went out there dropping gems, though.

Speaker 2:

I still like Kat Williams, no matter what you guys are.

Speaker 1:

He's on my top five. He's a fun guy for me. He's on my top five.

Speaker 2:

But yeah, he went all out, he went crazy. You know what? He even made Ludacris with a song.

Speaker 1:

What song? Oh, not like you gotta give him.

Speaker 2:

Kat Williams took Ludacris out of retirement to bring out a song.

Speaker 1:

And he even had the edge up, like he used to have back in the days he's back in the days of Fast and Furious.

Speaker 2:

But I'm not gonna lie man, kat Williams said a lot of crap that I was like, damn, I guess it was a contract they did. They saw himself he's gonna have a million dollars two hundred and fifty millions for doing ten episodes. And guess what Fast and Furious he was saying.

Speaker 1:

Fast and Furious is on one number, ten. Yeah, yeah so he's talking facts.

Speaker 2:

for me I mean like everything he's talking is facts. So again, I know it touched a lot of nerve for a lot of people because they call him back Adam.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, they are. Nobody's being quiet about it. Nobody's being quiet about it. But I will say that there was. Something I watched on YouTube is the way that people are coming back at him is not definitive, like they're saying that he's lying though, other than just trying to clean up their names, right, right. So I'm of the opinion that Raymond had a comment earlier that there is a percentage of what he said was true and some of it may be a little cap. I ain't on front. Obviously, he's a comedian. He's gonna say a little things funny, but the foundation of what he was talking about. Y'all need to tune in to see what's going on in this.

Speaker 2:

I don't want to get into more into this. I'm gonna just say one thing and that's gonna keep it. You guys can figure out what you want to do. Cat Williams say something Everybody's talking shit about it. People talk about Epstein. Yeah, a lot of people's not saying shit. Thanks, right, a lot of names on the list. Yeah, yeah, let's make that, let's do comparison here. Yeah, for sure, and we're gonna leave it just like that. Yeah, because that is definitely Because that's just been dealing since what? 2018 maybe, yeah, and we're still talking about it now.

Speaker 1:

That's some crazy stuff.

Speaker 2:

Anyway, shout out to my man, Cat Williams.

Speaker 1:

Thanks Shannon Sharp for getting that juice.

Speaker 2:

Oh and also shout out to my man again, shannon Sharp, for drinking in the nice little beautiful Louis XIII. Little liquor going on, y'all drinking real good over there, invite me over. I got a lot of shit to say.

Speaker 1:

D'Hussell shut the down, you think you got 37 million with Cat Williams. Imagine D's hustle for love. Listen, I don't care if you give me 1 million.

Speaker 2:

Speaker 2:
