I'll admit, at first I thought that this - like almost everything else that takes place on the 'Kiss Cam' - was some fake, forced stunt to get the crowd involved...then I saw the scoreboard.
Simply no way that even the attention starved Atlanta Hawks would stage a goddamn celebrity engagement when getting blown out by one of the worst teams in basketball. No reason to try to hype up the fans when they are that disappointed and about two minutes away from trying to beat the traffic.
Not only that, but the mannerisms of one Gucci Mane led me to believe that this scene was as legitimate as it gets. He didn't even care what the circumstances were, he was proposing at halftime. You think being down 20+ was going to make him put this public spectacle on hold any longer? Hell no. The goddamn fire alarm could have gone off and he still would have waited until he and his hunny were smack dab in the heart of the 'JumboTron' before damn near shoving the ring in her face and hitting her with the most "...or nah" look of all time. That proposal - in which a rapper didn't even get down on bended knee - was the most "I need to get this shit over with because it's stressing me the fuck out" gesture in history.
Remember being a kid and having that nervous energy before asking a girl out because Steve Jobs was a procrastinating piece of shit so it had to be done in person? You'd undoubtedly choose some "now or never" time to do it, and then during that long walk over she would - without fail -start to talk to her friend at the neighboring locker about the Social Studies homework or some shit. Did you let that stop you from interrupting them and awkwardly blurting out some half-handicapped version of what you had actually planned to say? You're damn right you didn't, and that's why Gucci Mane ain't going to let a Hawks no-show stop him from getting that jewelry off his hands.
P.S. Thoughts and prayers for this man who just got the full court press put on him by a gangster rapper whose fresh out the clink and has a goddamn ice cream cone tattooed on his face. And during the Holidays, no less...
