    The Story of Thugnificent, I consider is one of the best Boondocks episode. The character of Thugnificent arrives to woodcrest, and tension arises between him and Grandad. "Chaos" ensues and rap fued forms. This episode is very exagerrated, but beneath all that there is a hidden meaning. This episode satarizes the extrvagness of Rapper's lifestyle. How many think they are greasest and should be comapred to MLK. Also stupidity of rap feud. The fued between Grandpa and Lethal Interjection crew was hilarious and the song "Eff Grandad" is very catchy. The character of Thugnificent is one that will go down in The Boondocks history.moreless

    Thugnifficent along with Flonominal and Macktastic invade Woodcrest together they are "Lethal Interjection." Grandad wakes up one morning and sees everyone is gathered around a new home. Unfortunately for him its what he hates most, rappers! Him and Lethal Interjection dont get along because Grandad HATES rap music and anything that relates to gangsta activities. There fued countinues and Thugnifficent ends up makin a dis track called "Eff Grandad." Grandad TRYS to make a dis track but FAILS MISERABLE!! This episode was flippin' hilarious. They made the Gangstalicious episode friggin' hilarious too, just makin fun of da hip-hop community. Riley was unaffected pretty much throughout dis whole episode for some reason. He thought if he went up to Thugnifficent he woulda been "d**k ridin'" which was funny as crap too. This episode along with ALL the other season 2 episodes so far are funny like crap. Its almost gettin up there with season 1. Watch this episode if you like Rollin on the floor!moreless

    Overall this episode is interesting to watch and funny to boot. I like how it makes fun of the rap industry in general, by Thignificent's example. It's interesting to see the perspective of Grandad in comparsion with Thug's view. The music video "Eff Grandad" was hilarious and definetly pokes at all the cheap made rap videos of the day. The ending is somewhat shocking in the fact that we find that Thugnificent is justified in his actions and in things he does that annoys Granddad. And as always there's Huey. The voice of reason amoung the many characters and as usual, no one hears a single word he has to say. It's makes me laugh because Boondocks constanly does what black comedians do often. They make fun of their culture and when they do it, they don't make fun of the good things but make fun of the bad and how it has gotten worse, only wishing on the side for it to get better, with sometimes no hope in sight.moreless
