I don’t think I’ve hid the fact that I like being Milwaukee Buck.
The people I used to have around me from Nashville was showing love to the Cash Money clique on the strength of Buck trying to make it; making sure Buck gets to where he gots to go.
I cut a rap song once. It was a few years ago for my old show ‘Buck Commander,’ and it was a song called ‘You’re Short.’ It was about my camera guy. We shot the video in Las Vegas, ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ style!
Always tip a drag queen. If they’re good, they deserve it. And if they’re bad, at least they’ll go away after that buck.
