This is about to be my favorite lede I’ve ever written: Just hours after handing out Christmas gifts to homeless families in West Philly with rapper T.I., DeSean Jackson apparently lost $10,000 on a rap battle between a member of his posse and Meek Mill’s entrant, Lil Snupe, who is 16. Jackson stormed off and let the world know about his anger by firing this Tweet out into the ether:

With a Twitter assist (twatsist?) from Eagles writer Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks), we pieced together Tweets (and one press release about Jackson’s West Philly homeless shelter appearance with T.I.) and were able to construct a timeline of the evening. Here’s how it went down, ya’ll:

After handing out Christmas gifts in West Philly, D-Jac and T.I., who is finally a free man after serving time for weapons and drug convictions, met up with Meek Mill, who just this week was barred from traveling and touring for a month after he violated the terms of his probation stemming from a 2008 weapons and drug conviction, and other assorted rappers, friends and hangers-on. It was all part of a release party for T.I.‘s new album, Trouble Man, which dropped on Tuesday. At some point, Michael Vick – also now a free man, as you may know –  joined in on the fun:

Later, Jackson and Mill (sounds like a paper company) pitted two of their, um, protégés head-to-head in a rap battle with the winner taking $10k or, as it’s called, 10 stacks. Jackson’s youngin lost, and Jackson, seemingly, wasn’t happy about it. 

There’s really only one way to tell the rest of this tale… and that’s with Storify. Step over the jump with me, will you?

These are the Tweets and Instagram postings of Jackson, Mill, Lil Snupe (the winner), and, ah, coonphilly:


We’ll look forward to Round 2.

H/T to (@EliotShorrParks), and buy his book, “More Than A Game: Life Lessons From Philadelphia’s Sports Community.”


  1. I award you no points. And may god have mercy on your soul.

  2. Can Vick give Mr. Jacpot a ride to Jets training camp next year? Least likable Eagles team ever!

  3. What, no pictures of them standing in front of Bentleys?

  4. I would kill to have 10 grand in the bank, and this fool blows that much on some stupid rap battle. Are you kidding me?

  5. Remember the days when Reggie would sing Amazing Grace to anyone who would listen..good times.

  6. I HATE THIS TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    color folks love to show money

  8. they’ll be broke in 10 years. thankfully.

  9. Just another example of how athletes go broke so quickly.

  10. Steve O, I’d probably take Reggie Brown singing anything over this shit, let alone the Minister.

  11. What no champagne poured on some hoes?
    I can’t stand D Jax.
    He’s going to be on the next “Broke” ESPN Special

  12. Who the fuck is meek mill??

  13. Honest question, I thought parolees could not be in the contact of other known criminals. Or is that just a movie thing?

  14. Hopefully DJACC is done in Eagles green too.
    How can all these parolees get together and not get violated by their po’s?

  15. I wonder if that was a xmas party they were at last night

  16. Candy from the Oak

    December 20, 2012 at 11:02 am

    Wonder if they will be on the next episode of the first 48

  17. In ten years I’ll be able to hire DeSean to be the clown and my dumb kids birthday party for a paltry $500.

  18. I will not financially support this eagles team until they get rid of these low life thugs. The thought of my money trickling down into the hands of Jackson or Vick makes me sick. Their gangsta lifestyle is so troubling knowing kids look up to these assholes. Grow up u fucking idiots

  19. that’s some 8 mile shit.

  20. and what gets me is when ESPN does their “broke” pieces, they always inject a compassion element into each one as if we are to really feel sorry for these jackasses who knowingly and willingly piss away their fortunes. ill echo an earlier thought…..least liked eagles team ever for me! i pray they clean house and it starts with the assholes at the top who assembled this collection of jerkoffs!

  21. Probably gave eat shit he got for for free from endorsements and then drops 10 stacks. Why not be like Victr Cruz and actually give o yourself to the people that need it. Broke ass bitch

    I don’t understand anything of went on in that post. I read it like 3 times… WTF is going on???

  23. Anything goes when it comes to hoes!
    I´m the kingpin when it comes to flows!
    Ten freaky girls,
    Ten , ten , ten
    Freaky girls!

  24. you can take ’em out da hood, but….

  25. Some west Philly single moms got raped for Christmas, their kids got toys.

  26. Eagles are Pussys

    December 20, 2012 at 11:30 am

    That first picture of Meek Mill with the money looks like Chappelle Show when blacks got reparation money

  27. The fact that this is the only worthy-ish story to be posted on a Philadelphia sports blog on a Thursday is December is fucking sad. I hate sports in this town right now.

  28. Shawn Combs has mo talent than Desean.
    Eminem is the gold standard.

  29. Meek Mill (whoever the hell that is) is donating $10k and basketball shoes to his former high school, cuz if you can’t be a rapper, you can always become a professional basketball player…

  30. They should be dressed better for their Christmas party.

  31. Why do white people always gotta do dat race shit y’all mad because these young niggas is gettin money and doin what ever they want just be happy they doin sumthin wit they lifes and not in the streets robbin y’all white ass !!

  32. SMH has a good point

  33. its going to be well deserved when desean is flat broke in a few years after he looses his speed. also, how are two felons on parol hanging out???

  34. Don’t you wish you had class acts like me to cheer for?

  35. The only white person in any of the pics is the social worker who volunteers to look after all their back bastard kids while they’re out smoking weed and acting like monkeys. I love the sickle cell.

  36. And I know some of my fat pig Philly cops read this blog so I want an answer on the parole questions above! Put them all in cages!

    How great would it be if DeSean got shot at one of these things, but survived as a paraplegic? Answer: really great.

    So this is where the racist broke white trash spew their racist filth.
    It really angers you white DEVILS doesn’t it seeing young African American men(who earned their money legally BTW)who can do things and go places you pale bastards can only dream of,so go ahead keep spewing your hate while these brothas make millions while you live in your parents suburban home.

    wonder if Recklesss was there with the critters

  40. Our President, I’ll live in my parents basement with your fine self, if you know what I mean…

  41. Our president is just as much white as he is black and seeing how he was raised by his white side of the family …. Nobody cares what these idiots do with their legally earned money, thats not the point moron. Do you think if these idiots couldnt run fast or rap (only meek mill and TI here, Djac better stop embarrassing himself trying to be a rapper)…would they be earning there money with a real job….chance are 99.9% that the answer is no.

  42. LOL @ you accusing others of being racist, and then proceeding to throw racist comments out there to enhance your argument.

  43. Example of a paragraph that loses credibility and sense right from the first sentence: “You are a racist white devil.”

  44. Did DeSean ever pay back that jeweler??

  45. Where da white women at in those pics

    I am so glad I’m not the only O&A/Yimmy Norden fan Ted Scheckler. By the way, TNB TNB TNB TNB TNB TNB TNB

  47. Lot of racism here, it’s disgusting….all your daughters will be taking black dick in the future if they’re not already taking it now

  48. Would anyone really miss your racist asses?

    December 21, 2012 at 9:02 am

    You racist fucks is what’s wrong. And by raising for uneducated offspring the disgusting cycle continues. Your mother’s were bad parents.
    Kyle, congrats on having the lowest scum on your blog comments yet again this year. Keep up the white trash and racist spirit right? Fucking losers.

    For the record do like that Vick is wearing the Phillies cap. He’s been good by this city since he’s been here. Wish it would have went better on the field, sure an O-line would have helped.
