01:19
one of those you know what I'm saying.
01:20
And Halo.
01:21
Halo was big on the first Xbox too.
01:23
Anything that would lead you back to the PlayStation?
01:27
Yeah if they put a Xbox inside the PlayStation,
01:30

01:33
[upbeat music]
01:39
This is African shea butter you know what I'm saying?
01:42
Smells good.
01:43
It look weird when it's broke up like this,
01:44
but it actually works wonders you know what I'm saying?
01:47
This is like a miracle lubricant moisturizer
01:50
right here you know what I'm saying?
01:51
Especially for me you know.
01:52
Black people we got like these parts of our hands
01:55
like right here and right here where it normally
01:56
stay ashy no matter what so this is like a must
01:58
to really get that out of there you know what I'm saying.
02:00
You feel me you just get a piece like this like so,
02:03
put it on your hand, rub it in real good.
02:06
Like my hand gone be oily for the rest of the day now.
02:08
It's over.
02:10
It's over you know what I'm saying.
02:11
Dab a piece like that.
02:13
So you ain't never gone be ashy for like a week.
02:15
You good now you don't even got to do nothing else
02:17
whole week you straight.
02:18
Shiny.
02:21
Shea butter as a whole is definitely an essential.
02:23
You know what I'm saying?
02:24
Keep you looking young too.
02:26
Preserve my sexy.
02:28
Everybody should have this in every home
02:30
if you ever been ashy when you take a shower,
02:33
this $3 tub will last a whole year, 365.
02:36
It just did so much for life and the women out there
02:38
you feel me?
02:39
I had to dedicate a song it.
02:40
It's called Shea Butter.
02:41
We should actually listen to it right now
02:43
as a matter of fact.
02:44
It's on iTunes, Spotify, every other platform
02:46
that has music.
02:47
Shea Butter, Pardi Fontaine.
02:48
[smooth music]
02:54
Card holder you know what I'm saying.
02:56
Hold all my cards.
02:57
It's a lot of good scammers in the world
02:59
so I'm not gone show y'all my cards.
03:00
I know y'all pick up on the numbers quick.
03:02
My ID.
03:03
It took me a long time to get this one hold on.
03:06
It's that AMEX you feel me?
03:08
It got no limit on this motherfucker.
03:09
I can spend all day.
03:11
I always keeps this with me though.
03:13
Always keep my benefit card you feel me?
03:16
From my food stamps days.
03:18
So right before I go to buy some shit I always
03:20
just remember you could back here tomorrow
03:22
you feel me?
03:23
But my other essential is my card holder
03:25
and my money clip.
03:28
Why a money clip and not a wallet?
03:30
I really don't care cash that much
03:31
you know what I'm saying so it's just extra bulky
03:33
in your pocket for no reason.
03:35
So when everything can be held in a little clip
03:37
and I think it's type old school too.
03:39
So you know what I'm saying you pull of the money clip.
03:43
[upbeat music]
03:44
White tees.
03:46
White tees are definitely in my essential list.
03:48
You know what I'm saying I probably got like
03:50
four or five hundred white tee shirts in my crib right now.
03:53
You can never wear the same white tee shirt out twice.
03:56
Like you see this tee shirt right here?
03:58
I could never wear this shirt again out.
04:00
After that it becomes a gym shirt.
04:02
I don't care what city I go to.
04:03
I don't care where I land at.
04:05
I'm going to the nearest Marshall's and I'm getting
04:08
packs of white tee shirts, socks, and underwears.
04:10
These are just amazing like all around
04:12
white tee shirts are a must and I get them in a
04:14
medium too so you can really see me out here.
04:18
I probably got too many of them to be honest,
04:19
but straight out the pack it go on the body.
04:22
You don't even got to iron it the little wrinkles fall out.
04:24
I love white tee shirts.
04:26
Like this Alfani one this is pretty good.
04:28
Rich like the Polo ones for some reason,
04:30
he a old school dude.
04:31
But I like this one.
04:32
Nordstrom's got a good brand of white tee shirts.
04:34
The way they just fit you feel me.
04:36
Like most clothes the fit is everything.
04:38
Have you ever worn a black tee shirt?
04:40
Yo. I haven't worn a black tee shirt in years.
04:43
You know what I'm saying.
04:43
Somebody suggested I switch it up one time,
04:45
but for right now it's the white tees.
04:46
[upbeat music]
04:51
The cognac just to get the party started.
04:54
Absolute must go to if I'm in the club they know
04:57
I'm asking for one of these, two of these.
05:01
This is self explanatory.
05:02
This been making babies and refreshing
05:05
the population for years.
05:06
And when you drink a certain amount of Hennessy right
05:08
you know what I'm saying Hennessy it start
05:10
rocking with you back.
05:11
They send you a very special birthday one.
05:13
You feel me?
05:14
It says Pardison on the front just for me.
05:16
And all the amount of Hennessy I've been able
05:18
to consume over the past 37 years,
05:22
cheers to them, Hennessy.
05:24
They send you one every year for your birthday?
05:26
This was the first year so they better keep it going.
05:28
When did you first drink Hennessy?
05:31
I think I was like 14.
05:33
Probably 14.
05:34
I went to a club and my brother gave me two things right.
05:37
First thing he gave me was a Long Island iced tea,
05:39
why he would give me that I have no idea.
05:41
I hated it.
05:43
So he switched it out for a Henny,
05:44
and I was like yo this one ain't bad.
05:46
Now I drink it straight you know what I'm saying,
05:48
I just don't like the extra calories when you put
05:49
juice and what not in it.
05:50
So I just drink it straight.
05:51
Even when I'm in the club I give it a little swirl
05:53
you feel me.
05:55
[upbeat music]
05:58
I've never gone nowhere I haven't been to nobody house
06:02
I haven't gone to no restaurant,
06:03
I have never gone anywhere and ate some food
06:07
and not had to put salt on it.
06:08
I hate when I go to restaurants and they don't got
06:10
the salt and pepper shaker on the table.
06:11
Like y'all really think y'alls cook is this good
06:14
that I'm not gone have to do nothing to it?
06:16
Like y'all just took it of the table completely?
06:18
So now I ask for it and they be mad,
06:20
they bring it out in like a little bowl or something.
06:21
Salt has to go on everything I don't care what it is.
06:24
If I'm eating it it gotta have salt on it.
06:26
They tell me it's not good for me but I go to the doctor
06:28
they check my blood pressure
06:29
and they be like ah you're amazing so.
06:31
[shaking salt]
06:33
I'm good. That's enough.
06:35
Man I done put salt on a cheeseburger before.
06:37
You feel me?
06:38
I put salt on everything.
06:40
I don't even discriminate against salts, all of them.
06:42
Sea salt, the pink salt, all of that you feel me.
06:45
If Adobo is available any seasoning salt,
06:48
all of that you know what I'm saying.
06:49
[upbeat music]
06:55
Y'all ready for this?
06:56
These are very special and very essential.
06:58
I don't make too many like big purchases
07:01
you know what I'm saying where I go too far out
07:04
for one item you know what I'm saying,
07:06
but these I kind of had to track down.
07:08
I wanted these bad.
07:10
And I really wanted the green pair but they told me
07:13
it was like an exclusive only released in Chicago
07:15
or something I've been trying to track them down
07:17
but I'm gone get them too.
07:19
The Virgil edition Louis Vuitton shades, essential.
07:22
Like it don't matter what you got on,
07:23
I can wear just the white tee and come outside with these
07:25
and it's like oh yeah he fly today you feel me.
07:28
So these is definitely a must.
07:29
The thing is they dark as a motherfucker though
07:32
like you can't really wear them at night,
07:33
people do but I need to see.
07:35
I'm already blind so.
07:38
You feel me?
07:39
Like I just became a whole different person just now.
07:42
You see it too.
07:43
I see it.
07:44
I see me looking good.
07:45
How much did they cost?
07:45
Roughly $900.
07:46
Glasses. Sunglasses and shades and frames those
07:50
are the essential part you know what I'm saying.
07:51
You gotta have a good pair of frames.
07:53
Long night you don't want nobody to know.
07:55
This is it.
07:58
I got a little collection going.
07:59
I got a extensive plethora of Cartier frames vintage
08:04
you know what I'm saying that I keep and those are
08:06
important to me,
08:07
but these Louis these is like the newest hottest
08:09
thing on the market and I'm gone keep them forever
08:11
so when my kids get old they'll be like
08:13
ahh what's these?
08:14
They'll be able to pull them out you feel me.
08:15
I might do the rest of the interview like this.
08:18
[upbeat music]
08:21
You always gotta smell good.
08:22
Gucci Guilty you can't go wrong you know what I'm saying.
08:26
Walk past a woman, mmmm who that?
08:28
You know what I'm saying.
08:29
They say smell or scent is like the most tied thing
08:32
to memory so if you smell good they ain't never
08:34
gone forget you.
08:35
The first time I got it it was a gift for my birthday
08:37
as a matter of fact.
08:39
I wore it and I knew it was a wrap.
08:42
Ladies if you trying to get your man
08:43
something that smell good,
08:45
you want your man to smell like Pardi Fontaine,
08:47
he can't be Pardi Fontaine but at least he
08:49
can try to smell like him.
08:50
I got a older brother so he always had this
08:51
you know what I'm saying.
08:52
I used to sneak in his room and steal them
08:54
before I go to school.
08:57
I always knew it was a must from him.
08:58
The smelling good was always a thing of mine.
09:01
I always had to.
09:02
[upbeat music]
09:04
I'm somebody that's always on they phone,
09:06
I feel like everybody always on they phone.
09:07
So me especially I gotta keep a portable because
09:10
it's gone die and being outside with a dead phone
09:13
is like being a nobody.
09:15
You can't do nothing.
09:16
You can't call nobody, you can't post nothing
09:18
you just outside.
09:20
Go home.
09:21
Like I'm ready to go home if I'm out and my phone die,
09:23
I'm ready to go home.
09:23
So I gotta keep one of these.
09:24
This one is pretty fire actually so it don't matter
09:27
where you go you just plug your joint up
09:28
and charge it together.
09:29
Charge the phone, got the iPhone wire right here.
09:32
For whatever reason if you got a Android for what?
09:36
You don't got nothing else to talk about it.
09:38
Why is my text messages green? Why?
09:40
For what?
09:42
I'm like that though.
09:43
My portable charger essential every day.
09:46
Listen if I say my phone died I probably lied
09:49
because I got this on me you feel me.
09:51
I'm probably definitely lying you know what I'm saying.
09:53
I gotta keep this portable charger everywhere.
09:57
[upbeat music]
10:02
Durag.
10:03
This is just a must.
10:04
I mean I feel like since the beginning of time
10:06
Black men have had hair and wanted to take care of it
10:09
you feel me and this is just our go to method to do it
10:12
you feel me.
10:13
I don't care if you got braids or waves.
10:15
Even back when I had the waves I used to have this.
10:16
And then I would put a stocking cap on top of the waves
10:19
on top of this just to make sure the waves
10:21
was extra crispy.
10:22
So right now I just keep my braids fresh,
10:24
keep everything you know what I'm saying.
10:25
This could also be an accessory though now and days.
10:27
You can go outside with this tuck in tail,
10:29
I'm an old school player I tuck in the tail still.
10:31
Are all durags equal?
10:33
No. They are absolutely not.
10:34
This one right here is what we call a silky
10:38
you know what I'm saying.
10:38
You see that nice luster it has to it right there?
10:41
You see it on camera?
10:42
This is silky right here.
10:43
This is to be taken serious.
10:44
You see a man out in this you're like aight man
10:46
this man really cares about his hair and how he looks
10:49
you feel me.
10:49
How do you feel about the crazy printed ones?
10:51
If I see somebody outside in 2019 with a colored durag,
10:55
like any other color besides black it just gotta be solid.
10:59
It gotta be a solid color bro it can have no designs.
11:02
Durag gotta be solid bro.
11:03
Maybe in '03, '04 where they had the two tones
11:06
or something like that but nah it gotta be solid for me.
11:11
[upbeat music]
11:15
Listen close. Listen to me.
11:16
The silk pillowcase Black girls love me.
11:18
I got silk pillowcases.
11:20
This also go hand in hand with the shea butter.
11:22
Listen.
11:23
Especially women you know what I'm saying if they got
11:24
natural hair or their hair done they can't lay their
11:27
head on no cotton you feel me it's gone mess up their hair
11:30
and get it frizzy.
11:31
Like me too I got braids.
11:32
This is why I'm allowed to not wear my durag every night.
11:35
I got silk pillowcases to keep everything the way
11:37
it's supposed to be and this one happens to be orange
11:40
because it's me.
11:41
Orange is like my thing.
11:42
You know how regular pillow cases you be all hot?
11:44
The side of your face all sweaty.
11:46
Not this right here it keep you cool.
11:51
[upbeat music]
11:54
There you go. Boom.
11:55
So back when I was really grinding you know what I'm saying
11:58
making music I wasn't getting my hair done all that often.
12:00
So I just was wearing hats all the time and the one
12:03
hat that I had was orange you know what I'm saying.
12:05
So I just wore this same orange hat all the time
12:08
all the time.
12:09
People started like oh there go the orange hat
12:10
you feel me.
12:12
Like one of my homies he had made like a fake
12:13
album cover for me and it was just the orange hat.
12:16
Me and this orange hat been through a lot.
12:18
So now it's like I can't abandon it now that I'm here
12:20
