Buddy Hield: I think the pictures were meant to say “Hey we are grateful,” but then they talk about us being bougie. But our moms and our grandmothers cooked better food than this and we didn’t have no money. The hotel costs all this money and we get this kind of food. What sense does that make? I think people got the wrong picture. Because I grew up poor and my mom made sure she cooked a good ass breakfast and a good ass dinner. A mother’s cooking.
You know when you’re back home, Black, white, rich or poor, even if you come from a poor family, that food is going to taste good. I didn’t complain about the food. I came up from nothing, but I knew my mom made a good ass meal for me every day. I didn’t have lunch money going to school but I knew I was coming home to some good ass pork chops or some stewed chicken.
