Announcements: No HDHH because this weather sucks. Prayers for all the PAX, their families, and their friends who are dealing with sickness, pain, and injuries. And thanks to Him for allowing us to be out in the snow and the cold pumpin’ good ole iron.

COT: Folsom lead the PAX on a historical journey to the day of actual rap battles. Folsom shared a Cliff Notes version of the life and deaths of Tupac and the Notorious Biggie Smalls. They began as friends, until Tupac was shot 5 times in the lobby of a recording studio while Biggie and Puff Daddy were upstairs. Despite a lack of any supportive evidence, Tupac blamed his friend and a feud ensued that lasted until their untimely deaths a few short years later. Folsom encouraged the PAX to squash any beef that they may be carrying around with them before it’s too late to say what you ought to say.
