Skip to 1 minute and 12 seconds>> You guys heard the new single from Kendrick Lamar? >> Yeah, I'm gonna take a shower and get ready for the event at the BCC tonight. >> You're going home, Jack? >> You too E.

Skip to 1 minute and 34 seconds>> What up? >> You know that thing you said earlier? >> About Kendrick Lamar? This song's dope, you should check it out. >> No, maybe later. Before that, when I said I could dunk and you said- >> Niggas- >> Yeah. Yeah, you don't need to say that again, ever. >> I didn't mean anything by it. >> I know, I know. >> It's just I thought we were friends. >> Of course, we are. >> Joey calls you that.

Skip to 2 minutes and 5 seconds>> It's different when you say it. >> Because I'm white?

Skip to 2 minutes and 15 seconds>> E, hey. [SOUND] Eric. >> Kendrick Lamar just said the word, like three times in 10 seconds. You and Joey say it to each other in the hallway like you're saying hello. But the white boy can't say it? >> Because it matters who says it. >> Okay, whatever. >> No, no, listen, it's like.

Skip to 2 minutes and 40 secondsOkay, when I was 12, I wanted to be Lance Armstrong. >> [LAUGH] Lance Armstrong? >> Yeah, before all the cheating stuff came out. You know, LIVESTRONG. I had the bracelets, the t-shirts, the posters on the wall, everything. So for my 12th birthday, my parents surprised me with this bike, and it was dope. It had 24 speeds, racing tires, Tour de France, here I come. So they surprised me with this bike in the garage.

Skip to 3 minutes and 12 secondsI hopped on that thing and I took off. >> Kevin, put your helmet on. >> Okay, I put my helmet on first and then I took off. I was so excited. I mean, I was flying.

Skip to 3 minutes and 25 secondsAnd I got to the edge of my neighborhood, and I said what the hell, and just kept going. But after awhile, I realized I was lost. And then I hit this dead end.

Skip to 3 minutes and 37 secondsSo, I'm going to turn around, and this group of white guys pulls up on me in a jeep. And the driver looks at me and says, hey, what are you doing in our neighborhood? And I was thinking, hey man, it's a free country. >> Yeah, nobody can tell you where to ride your bike. >> But it wasn't really a question. It was more of a threat. So I say, sorry, I'm lost. And then the passenger leans across the driver, and he's like, don't you come around here again, hear me? And this was definitely a threat. So I jumped on my bike and I booked it. And then I heard, [SOUND]. It might have been a shotgun, possibly a cherry bomb.

Skip to 4 minutes and 21 secondsI don't know. I was 12 and I was scared out of my mind. And then, I hear this voice yell behind me, you come back here again and you'll be a dead nigger. >> Wow, that's awful. >> Yeah, so that's what I think of when a white person calls me the n-word.

Skip to 4 minutes and 45 seconds>> I get it now man, I'm sorry. >> You still my brother from another mother? >> You know it. >> Good, because I can not handle Joey on my own. [LAUGH]
