I can't even get into that but it was so much every going on with that behind-the-scenes and I fought for my sister's so they wouldn't be looking stupid on TV that's why I ain't there no more because I can't do that I can't sit there and make my sister's look stupid on TV exports you whether I done for her I'm the reason hiring Kandi's cool today I set that up behind the scenes for Portia III may

draft Lala that went into the draft Lala had come out and Anthony now the other girl had something that God forgot his name but he played he got drafted he at the bench he didn't become a star he went to the d-league then he went overseas but they they goal was to get pregnant by these niggas right so the girl the other girl now I was telling I was talking to Babs on the on the phone the other day

but it's just goes to show me that's what they do you don't say it's all about 18 yeah pay off it ain't about the kids it's about them having financial security for 18 years right excuse me now Lala was one that got mellow now like I said Lala was with sugar when she was read what do you call that shit Charlemagne read tagging real read telling which means you fucking with somebody younger than you or whatever today get old enough so you can do them I guess that's what it is but so now she's sitting there we all know her in the industry is sugar J's girl right but she's fucking with the nigga Melo on the low cuz he's potentially gonna go to the NBA if he hit by a sugar J nigga I got a rich nigga now and I'm gonna get pregnant by this nigga and I'm gonna be set in 2019 I'll be with this nigga I'll be rich I'll be famous Teddy that she did it she comes to go I'll give it to you Lala you did that now he Melo any marry you for a minute you know saying but eventually they probably pressure the NBA now the story happens this is how sugar J finds out that Lala's with Melo we in Bobby loose right I'm standing right here boom sugar J come in the door while I'm standing right here she on the side of me Melo right here up in the VIP she's standing it here comes sugar Jackie sugar J cones walking there he walks over there Lala to go give her a kiss and she kind of moves like yo

this nigga or he's doing the he up in the VIP all he do is see and there you go and spinning in his girl face or which he thought was his girl but which was vaguer right so mellow goes right over to

girls one of the girlfriends like the woman on the radio she used to hang with Lala to Allah I was blowing up she got the nigga the other one she salty sea salty cuz the nigger she got ain't GoPro nigga ain't got no money now she tight and now I like acting like oh she took two good to hang with this other girl no more so now I learn a group mellow became popular which brings up blood loss popularity now she get to hanging around the Kelly Rowland's the Kim Kardashian's she's getting a TV show based around Melos career not on her fucking career based around Melos career okay you know I'm saying so I say oh I like to say it hurt me to hear motherfucking Lala say she don't give a fuck about a nigga I really don't know you don't give a fuck about their nigga now you don't say and if you didn't give a fuck about the nigger because you felt like he cheated or he had a baby with somebody else why the fuck did you stay why are you still in the in the marriage right now cuz you like his lifestyle it was never about you being in love with this nigga it was about where you can go in the lifestyle and that's where you are today so now you think you're the super bad bitch cuz you got a nose job and you got a fake ass and you got your body done and all that just like the rest of y'all mother fucking chicks that was super wack in the body and now y'all got to fake bodies and y'all think y'all all listened or left y'all still the same person is nigga like me I don't give a fuck how much money you made or what you did you know I'm saying your shit is body enhancement you're not the bad bitch from birth okay you're not you're not okay so I really don't have no I got no beef with Allah but that shit be hurting me when I hear women say that they don't need a man for nothing so you don't need your father you don't need your grandfather yo you don't you don't need you know your uncle's that that like that to care you you know helps your mother out like that so that shit is so disrespectful to hear women say that they don't need a man for nothing like all kelly said let's go half on the baby soon the baby's here is y'all fucking baby you don't say me personally I paid two hundred fifty thousand and six years I didn't go to court to my daughter's probably about 15 for child support because they felt like oh he I rock if I could get all this money this tighten up you know what I'm saying one of my baby mamas got two hundred fifty thousand and six years I'm on fucking saying yo children just success you know your lifestyle don't warrant your success yeah motherfucker because if I got a fifteen hundred dollar check I only got two hundred dollars out of it so imagine you fucking getting fifteen hundred a week but you got to save our file checks just to pay your rent so see it a nigga like me is better when it comes to a motherfucker to him I don't need a man for shit you don't say y'all fucking women take all our money y'all turn out fucking kids against us look at 50 look at like people's their old 50 do this by his son young bees when we fifty first popped off and we seen him raising his son the same shitty doing for the digits in Sunday's his new son he did for the other son you see I had his son then turned against him women can do that to you they can turn your kids against you you know what I'm saying and then it's like oh fuck niggas we give you out all our blood sweat and tears and then it's fuck niggas y'all need us tonight but you I want our sperm to make babies go bump pussies with a bitch and make a baby if you don't fucking need us for nothing don't ask me to open the fucking door for you if you don't need us for nothing don't ask me to pay for your fucking mill when we go out if you don't need us for nothing I'm done knowing that one but um other day I'm said I was gonna talk about where's the Nipsey Hussle thing shout out to the west coast y'all see it the old bay you know I mean shout out to my man JC and I'm saying shout out to LA y'all sit out blink Compton long baits okay the bait San Francisco all right and everybody else on the west side now people ask me how I feel about the NIP CLC thing this is how I feel you know I'm saying no disrespect to nipsey and what he did right I don't know Nipsey Hussle for being a humanitarian you don't say I known for being a rapper but what I do know is nipsey never had a hit record name a hit record that wasn't on this last album from Nipsey Hussle y'all thinking too long name one hit record Tupac had oh that was easy huh name one hit record big yeah oh damn you said that fast okay name one hit record then this year a radio hit named a gold album from them CLC named a platinum album from Nipsey Hussle nothing new okay I say that to say Nipsey death and the attention that he got from his death his success they and warned that I'm not taking nothing away from the brother okay but this brother got the same funeral is Michael Jackson somebody that's been a talent since the kid since the Jackson 5 grew up with the Jacksons played since he was a kid went solo Motown 25 did the moonwalk the glove or last she thriller the biggest selling album in the in the worldwide probably still to today right you telling me Nipsey career and Michaels career is parallel for Nipsey Hussle to have the same funeral as Michael Jackson stay with me – I'm not taking nothing away from this seat or his family or nothing I just follow me you know I'm saying then they give Nipsey Hussle the Humanitarian Award at BT now this is the same award that they gave Cicely Tyson and Harry Belafonte do you know who Cicely Tyson is do you know what year she was born do you know what she contributed to this industry do you know who Harry Belafonte is if you don't I need you our kids to go look this shit up go look at what year Harry Belafonte was raised I mean born look at his accomplishments and look at all that he's done and look how old he is today and look how old Cicely Tyson is today you telling me Nipsey Hussle just the same award is dumped no disrespect to Neff COC but you tell me his his career warrant the same success and award as a Harry Belafonte and assistly Tyson No okay now if y'all niggas is smart and y'all intelligent and you got that third eye like me this shit ain't adding up right now a lot of y'all try to blame big you for this shit everybody sayin big you big you you think that big you got strings to pull to get him that funeral like Michael Jackson you think big you can't help this thing could get a Humanitarian Award the same is Cicely Tyson and Harry Belafonte okay now they saying that Eric Holder says that he was paid 75 thousand to kill Nipsey Hussle I'm not saying big you is not broke I'm not saying he's broke don't get me wrong when I say this but do you think that big you would have to pay a nigga in the hood $75,000 to hit a nigga heap like he get it done for free I don't even think he would have to pay ten thousand five thousand I'm I don't think so I don't think big you had anything to do with this shit yeah everybody said yo they had beef and real beef big sent Sam shot at big you we'll all right cool how long ago was that he could have been this up why would he wait now to do that second of all Oh y'all saying no cuz you know he brought nipsey into the game he get no money off him what the fuck killing him was going put in big use pocket nothing right killing us he was not gonna fuckin make big you rich but he was gonna make somebody else rich now Steve LaBelle he'd been running around with nipsey for a long time now he said in an interview more recently with a BT that he don't want to say no names cuz he ain't no snitch Stevie labelled you wouldn't be snitchin again snitchin is when you do a crime with somebody and you tell to get yourself free so saying who wasn't signed this year who weren't fuck with him and say oh he looked like Snoop Dogg and he ain't it it's not snitching they could say so motherfuckers can take that heat off a big you understand what the fuck is going on here okay Steve LaBelle you believe there nipsey not none of these niggas these niggaz took him from you and big you they took him from y'all the same old fuckers that didn't believe him I heard you say Atlantic right so you're telling me you took him to Atlantic Atlantic ain't wanna fuck with but now he's signed to Atlantic and woody I'm sure he's under 360 deal with Atlantic and then he signed the rock nation now if any of y'all motherfuckers is smart rock nation and Atlantic are one in the same Atlantic is my casa Julie Greenwald Kevin Kevin Laos Lyor Cohen Kevin Liles Leah Cohen they don't went over to start 300 ever but they still a part of this shit right these are the same people who worked with jay-z at Rockefeller this was his distribution people they worked with him and they pushed all the jay-z records they pushed all the Rockefeller records right these are the same people that I was the staff for jay-z when he became the president of Def Jam right now me personally I wouldn't fucking sign the Roc Nation in Atlantic cuz the motherfuckers could talk and do shit that you don't know nothing about they too smart they've been in bed with each other too long causing them know so much shit and learn so much shit about the music game that they learn in Jade and in rock they Jay knows so much shit cuz he learned cuz they take they fuck with each other you don't say it's like you puff signing you were telling you mark this is going to be your manager okay so wait Rock nation being nipsey's management and Atlantic Records being his record company now if he's signed to a 360 who the fuck is getting all the money from this seat huh sue who's getting all the money Atlantic and a rock nation right now they got just this he had a Pullman deal he's 360 in the fall they're gonna drop and nipsey sneak up they're gonna do some Pullman shit who's gonna get the money not black Sam or Sam is brother not Lauren London it's going to be roc nation in Atlantic Records so who the fuck you think through that big ass who knew who for him who the fuck you think is getting all this publicity for him and why cuz the more attention you get the more money they make right so would that be a say we know the LAPD is corrupt right they said Nipsey Hussle was meaning where and rock nation was meeting with the heads at LAPD today after nipsey got killed right what would a meaning for just make shit good in the hood for niftier without whatever but the fact that rock nation is meeting with the LAPD and these niggas is from New York which I mean with the LAPD for the fact that that always shit that I brought to light that motherfuckers getting arrested with a bunch of keys nobody go to jail and they got federal informants and everybody over there at rock nation got federal cases niggas then came home everything is federal they fuck with the police now I'm not saying they did that I'm just saying y'all went from saying Nipsey Hussle could afford to buy the store but he wanted to bind the whole building who gave him the money for that cuz he never sell no motherfucking records where didn't if he get the money to buy the whole fucking building was he selling drugs in the street I never heard that

In which John Green teaches you about the United States in the 1920s. They were known as the roaring 20s, but not because there were lions running around everywhere. In the 1920s, America’s economy was booming, and all kinds of social changes were in progress. Hollywood, flappers, jazz, there was all kinds of stuff going on in the 20s. But as usual with Crash Course, things were about to take a turn for the worse. John will teach you about the Charleston, the many Republican presidents of the 1920s, laissez-faire capitalism, jazz, consumer credit, the resurgent Klan, and all kinds of other stuff.

Hey teachers and students – Check out CommonLit’s free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. The Roaring Twenties was characterized by great highs:
However, the Roaring Twenties ended with the country’s most tragic low, the Great Depression:

Follow us!

hi I'm John Green this is crash-course US history and today we're going to learn about one of the best errors ever the 1920s the 20s gave us jazz movies radio making out in cars illegal liquor and the 20s also gave us prosperity although not for everybody and gangsters and a consumer culture based on credit and lots of prejudiced against immigrants and eventually the worst economic crisis the US has ever seen there's a green machine but what about Gatsby yeah me from the past it's true that Gatsby turned out alright in the end but what preyed on Gatsby what found us trailed in the wake of his dreams did temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men so there's a stereotypical view of the 1920s as the Roaring Twenties a decade of exciting change in new cultural touchstones as well as increased personal freedom and dancing and it really was a time of increased wealth for some people the part of the decade has to go to our famously taciturn president from Massachusetts Calvin Coolidge who said the chief business of the American people is business jay-z would later update this for the 21st century noting I'm not a businessman I'm a business man but anyway during the 1920s the government helped business grow like gangbusters largely by not regulating it much at all this is known as laissez-faire capitalism or less a fair capitalism if you're good at speaking French the Republican Party dominated politics in the 1920s with all the presidents elected in the decade being staunch conservative Republicans the federal government hewed to the policies favored by business lobbyists including lower taxes on personal income and business profits and efforts to weaken the power of unions President Harding Coolidge and Hoover stocked the boards of the Federal Reserve and the Federal Trade Commission with men who shared their pro-business news shifting the country away from the economic regulation that had been favored by progressives and that was very good for the American economy at least in the short run the 1920s were also marked by quite a bit of government corruption most of which can be pinned to the administration of warren g harding now Harding himself wasn't terribly corrupt but he picked terrible friends they included Attorney General Harry Daugherty who accepted money to not prosecute criminals and Interior Secretary Albert fall who took half a million dollars from private business in exchange for leases to government oil reserves at teapot dome Paul later became the first cabinet member ever to be convicted of a felony but on the other hand businessman productivity rose dramatically largely because older Industries adopted Henry Ford's assembly line techniques and newer industries like aviation chemicals and electronics grew up to provide Americans with new products and new jobs during the 1920s annual production of cars tripled to four point eight million in automobile companies were gradually consolidated into the big three that we know today Ford Chrysler and harley-davidson what General Motors by 1929 half of all American families owned a car and thus began the American love affair with the automobile which is also we're love-affairs were often consummated which is why in the 1920s cars came to be known as skoodilypooping chariots what's that they were called brothels on wheels and the economy also grew because American corporations were extending their reach overseas and American foreign investment was greater than that of any other country the dollar replaced the pound is the most important currency for trade and by the end of the decade America was producing 85% of the world's cars and 40% of its overall manufactured goods Stan can I get a liver Taj and companies turned out all kinds of labor-saving devices like vacuum cleaners toasters refrigerators and not having to spend all day washing your clothes or turning over your own toast like some kind of common or mint that Americans had more time for leisure and this was provided by radios and baseball games boxing matches vacations dance crazes I mean before Gangnam style there was the Lindy and the Charleston but probably the most significant leisure product was movies and I'm not just saying that because I'm staring into a camera the American film industry moved out to Hollywood before World War 1 because land was cheap and plentiful all that sunshine meant that you could shoot outside all year round and it was close to everything desert mountains ocean plastic surgeon and by 1925 the American film industry had eclipsed to all of its competitors and become the greatest in the world especially if you count by volume and not quality and more and more people had money to go see those movies thanks to consumer debt the widespread use of credit and layaway buying plans meant that it was acceptable to go into debt to maintain what came to be seen as the American standard of living and this was a huge change in attitude these days we don't even think of credit cards as debt really but they are and that was a relatively new idea as was another feature of American life in the 20s that is still with us celebrity opera singer Enrico Caruso has often been called the first modern celebrity but now he's a lot less famous than Charlie Chaplin or Rudolph Valentino or Babe Ruth but probably the biggest celebrity of the decade was Charles Lindbergh whose claim to fame was flying across the Atlantic Ocean by himself without stopping although he did use an airplane which makes it slightly less impressive that Lindbergh wasn't a truly contemporary celebrity in the sense of being famous for being famous but he won a business more than a businessman hi culture also flourished this was the age of the lost generation of American writers many of whom lived and worked in Europe but America had its own version of Paris in New York the decade of the 1920s saw continued migration of african-american people from the south to cities in the north and Harlem became the capital of black America and speaking of migration let us now migrate to the chair for the mystery document the rules here are simple I guess the author of the mystery document I'm either right or I get shocked with the shock pen all right let's see we got here if we must die would it not be like hogs hunted and penned in an inglorious spot while round us bark the mad and hungry dogs making their mock at our accursed lot like men will face the murderous cowardly pack pressed to the wall dying but fight back Stan thank you for the poetry I appreciate that it's not some obscure document from 18th century blah blah blah Claude McKay Harlem Renaissance poet the poem is called if we must die on it's the only thing in the world I'm actually good at I know this from the imagery alone especially the line about mad and hungry dogs that would figuratively and literally make up the mobs at the lynchings but the giveaway here is the ultimate sentiment that we will fight back this was part of the spirit of the Harlem Renaissance which rejected stereotypes and Prejudice and sought to celebrate african-american experience meanwhile thanks for changing for women as well as they found new ways to express autonomy flappers kept their hair and skirts short smoked and drank illegally in public and availed themselves of birth control and marketers encourage them to buy products like cigarettes christened torches of freedom by Edward Bernays liberation had its limits though most women were still expected to marry have children and find their freedom at home through the use of washing machines but the picture of prosperity is as usual more complicated than it at first appears the fact that so many Americans were going into debt in order to pursue the American dream meant that if the economy faltered and it did there was going to be lots of trouble let's go to the thought-bubble prosperity the 1920s wasn't equally distributed through the population real industrial wages rose by a quarter between 1922 and 1929 but corporate profits rose at twice that rate by 1929 1% of the nation's banks controlled 50% of the nation's financial resources and the wealthiest 5% of Americans share of national income exceeded that of the bottom 60% an estimated 40% of Americans lived in poverty now many Americans celebrated big business and Wall Street was often seen as heroic possibly because by 1920 about 1.5 million Americans owned some kind of stock but big business also meant that smaller businesses disappeared during the 1920s the number of manufacturing workers declined by 5 percent the first time this class of workers had seen its numbers drop but not the last now some of these jobs were made up for by new jobs in retail finance and education but as early as the 1920s New England was beginning to see unemployment in deindustrialization as textile companies moved their operations to the south where labor was cheaper and working-class people still made up the majority of Americans and they often couldn't afford these newfangled devices like in 1930 75 percent of American homes didn't have a washing machine and only 40% of them had a radio farmers were even worse off many had prospered during World War 1 when the government subsidized farm prices in order to keep farms producing for the war effort but when the subsidies ended production didn't subside largely due to mechanization and increased use of fertilizer farmers incomes dropped steadily and many saw banks foreclose upon their property for the first time in American history the number of farms declined during the 1920s for farmers the Great Depression began early thanks thought-bubble so in general the federal government did little to nothing to help farmers or workers the Supreme Court was the only segment of the government that kept any progressive ideas alive as they began to craft a system of ideas that we call the jurisprudence of civil liberties now the court still voted to uphold convictions of left-wing critics of the government but gradually began to embrace the idea that people had the right to express dissonant views in what Oliver Wendell Holmes called the marketplace of ideas in our versus Minnesota the Supreme Court struck down censorship of newspapers and by 1927 just as Brandeis was writing that freedom to think as you will and to speak as you think are indispensable to the discovery and spread of political truth but despite increased free speech and torches of Liberty and flappers and the Harlem Renaissance the 1920s was in many ways a reactionary period in American history for instance the decade saw the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan in a new and improved form and by improved I mean much more terrible spurred on by the hyper patriotism that was fostered during World War one the Klan denounced immigrants and Jews and Catholics as less than 100 percent American and by the mid 20s the Klan claimed more than 3 million members and it was the largest private organization right here in my home state of Indiana and with more immigrants coming from Southern and Eastern Europe who were often Catholic and Jewish white Protestants became more and more concerned about losing their dominant position in the social order spoiler alert it turns out ok for you white Protestants immersed immigration restriction bill was passed in 1921 limiting the number of immigrants from Europe to 357,000 in 1924 a new immigration law dropped that number to 150,000 and established quotas based on national origin the numbers of immigrants allowed from Southern and Eastern Europe were drastically reduced and Asians except for Filipinos were totally forbidden the quarter for Filipinos was set at 50 per year although they were still allowed to emigrate to Hawaii because their labor was needed there there were no restrictions however on immigration from the Western Hemisphere because California's large-scale farms were dependent upon seasonal laborers from Mexico these immigration restrictions were also influenced by fear of radical anarchists and pseudo-scientific ideas about race whites were seen as scientifically superior to people of color and as President Coolidge himself declared when he signed the 1924 immigration law America must be kept American tell me Calvin Coolidge about how American you are are you Cherokee or cream or Lakota the 1920s also saw increased tension between science education in the United States and religious beliefs the best-known example is of course the trial of John Scopes in Tennessee in 1925 Scopes was tried for breaking the law against teaching evolution which he had been encouraged to do by the ACLU as a test case for freedom of speech Scopes was prosecuted by William Jennings Bryan whom you will remember as having recently resigned as Secretary of State and who had become a leader of the fundamentalist movement 10 scopes was defended by Clarence Darrow that famous defense attorney who contemporary defense attorneys always point to to argue that defense attorneys aren't all scum scopes and Darrow actually lost the trial but the case drew national attention and ultimately led to evolution being taught in more American schools the Scopes trial is often seen as a victory for free thinking and science and modernism and I suppose it was but for me it's more a symbol of the contradictions of the 1920s this is the decade that gave us mass consumer culture and celebrity worship which are important and very complicated legacies and it also saw the birth of modern conceptions of civil liberties it was a period when tolerance became an important value but at the same time it saw a rise in lynchings immigrants were necessary for the economic boom of the 1920s but at the same time their numbers were restricted as they were seen as a threat to traditional American value and that raises a question that we're still struggling with today what are those values I don't mean that rhetorically let me know in comments thanks for
