Mike Tyson’s life is a true rise and fall.

Heavyweight champion of the world at 18 years old !?

“The single scariest man to ever enter the boxing ring”

I’ve been following Mike’s career for sometime now and it’s so interesting to me. I really urge you to take some time and learn more about Mike. He’s a legend that has never gotten his respect. 

Stay away from the message boards, stay away from the Hollywood character roles & you tube clips.

You won’t find the real Tyson there. The first time I watched Beyond the Glory I was talking about Iron Mike for weeks. Please clear some time from your schedule and check it out.
Whether you hate to love him, or love to hate him.
It’s simply amazing.

More recently there has been rumblings of a new biopic dropping that I’m dieing to see. I just pray they let Mike have a large part of telling Mike’s life. Unlike the 2 hours I wasted watching this Hollywood money machine version.

1995- Tyson

This movie did his life ZERO justice after seeing Beyond The Glory.

Tyson 09′

A new Tyson Documentary has been raking in awards at film festivals around the world. A Tyson movie that’s endorsed by Mike himself. God answered my prayers. Check this out, Ahhh yeah!

Tyson is acclaimed indie director James Tobacks stylistically inventive portrait of a mesmerizing Mike Tyson. Toback allows Tyson to reveal himself without inhibition and with eloquence and a pervasive vulnerability. Through a mixture of original interviews and archival footage and photographs, a startlingly complex, fully-rounded human being emerges. The film ranges from Tysons earliest memories of growing up on the mean streets of Brooklyn through his entry into the world of boxing, to his rollercoaster ride in the funhouse of worldwide fame and fortunes won and lost. It is the story of a legendary and uniquely controversial international athletic icon, a figure conjuring radical questions of race and class. In its depiction of a man rising from the most debased circumstances to unlimited heights, destroyed by his own hubris, TYSON emerges as a modern day version of classic Greek tragedy.”

Couldn’t have said it any better. 
Movie drops April, 24th 2009- you should go and see it.

 Nas- Legendary

Track about Mike Tyson, Nas knows the deal. Amazing track and remastered to the 10th degree compared to The Nigger Tape’s version.

Never see another like him.

Mike Tyson was the truth. All his personal life drama, ear-biting, tattooing of his face aside, he was a great boxer with tremendous skill. I’ll give him that. Good post dude.
