This Delonte West Sh*t Is Sad

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I don’t even know how to begin this post, man. The truth is, this Delonte West situation is sad as fuck, fam. I mean, just look at the dude, bruh! Look, that man is the same man who played nine seasons in the NBA. However, based on his current appearance, West is having a REALLY tough fucking time, people. All I can say is, I truly hope he gets some help as soon as humanly possible, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, Delonte West is back in the news for all of the wrong reasons. Now, a video has been circulating around the internet of an alleged altercation between West and some angry guy in Washington, D.C. Well, in reality, it’s less of an altercation and more of a clip of him getting his ass beat. Shit, the video that I saw shows him on the ground, in the middle of a highway, getting stomped on by this unidentified man. From there, another clips shows him on the side of the road, ranting about a guy pulling a gun on him, with his face covered in blood. That’s where the above picture comes from.

All I know is, this entire situation is fucked up, son. Real talk, this latest debacle just adds to the long list of shit that West has been involved in since his NBA days. Hell, going back to 2009, I remember when he got pulled over on his motorcycle, carrying enough guns to rival Rambo. I remember when he was begging for change in Maryland. I remember when he was walking around and looking nuts in Texas. Keeping it a buck, it just seems like it’s one thing after another, man.

Now, it’s no secret that West has mental issues, fam. Like, a simple Google search would show that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a long time ago. However, it’s clear that he’s not getting ANY type of assistance, bruh. In addition, I have no proof that he’s on drugs, but c’mon son, I don’t see how that isn’t the case as well, son. All in all, I just wish that someone would come to his rescue, man.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, fam. Ultimately, it’s insane to see what’s happening to this man. By and by, it doesn’t seem that long ago that he was getting buckets in the league. Now, he’s more known for the shenanigans than for hooping, bruh. At the end of the day, I hope that his friends and family will find some way to get through to him. Sadly, at this rate, there’s only one way for this story to end. Needless to say, nobody wants that, son. That is all. LC out.

Donald Cerrone Can’t Win The Big Fight

So, before I even begin, let me say that I’m a big Donald Cerrone fan. Now, I feel compelled to say that because the rest of this post is going to be rough on him, son. In any case, I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t objective, man. With that being said, it’s time to call a spade a spade, fam. The fact of the matter is, Cerrone just can’t seem to win the big fight, bruh.

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, Cerrone just fought Conor McGregor at UFC 246. Now, as I stated in a previous post, this was a huge fight, son. I mean, we have the return of McGregor and a big payday for Cerrone, the guy who holds most of the UFC‘s records. Anyway, I expected McGregor to win, but not like this, man. Like, Cerrone got absolutely ANNIHILATED, fam. For God‘s sake, the fight was over before it even started, bruh.

Look, we’re talking about 40 seconds, son. Real talk, 40 seconds is all it took for McGregor to beat the brakes off of Cerrone, man. Shit, after missing his opening haymaker, McGregor hit Cerrone with four-straight shoulder strikes to the face, then a head-kick and ended with punches on the ground. Listen, losing always sucks, but it’s gotta be especially trash to lose like this, fam. Hell, Cerrone went through an entire training camp, just to get finished before the one-minute mark. All I know is, that’s fucking tough, bruh.

But, as much as this hurts to say, I wasn’t really surprised, son. The fact is, Cerrone has never performed well in these big moments. Listen, during his career, Cerrone has gotten four chances at a world title (one with the UFC and three with the WEC). Frankly, he’s come up short every time, man. On the real, there are some fights were Cerrone looked fucking invincible. However, when the stakes reach their highest point, he doesn’t seem to perform the way I believe he’s able to. Fast forward to now and the same shit happened with McGregor. Yes, this wasn’t a title fight, but it was without question the biggest match of his career. Sadly, he couldn’t get it done, fam.

In the end, I don’t want this to seem like I’m just shitting on Cerrone, bruh. Ultimately, I really am a fan of his, son. By and by, I just wish his skills translated when the lights are the brightest, man. Then again, I’ll be right back when he fights again, fam. At the end of the day, I just hoped this would’ve been a better bout, bruh. That is all. LC out.

I’m Not Hyped To Hear Eminem’s Album

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m a diehard Eminem fan who hasn’t liked much of his music since the early 2000s. Now, that might not make sense to the ordinary person, but I was legit Stan when he dropped his first four albums (pun intended). In any case, from Encore onward, I just haven’t fucked with much of his material, man. With that being said, I’m not particularly hyped to listen to his surprise album, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Marshall Mathers is back in the game, bruh. Now, unbeknownst to the public, Em was working on a new album. Anyway, Music to Be Murdered By just touched the streets this morning. All I can say is, I don’t know what to expect from these tracks, son. At this point, Em has more bad albums than good albums, man. I mean, Infinite, The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show will ALWAYS be untouchable, fam. However, most of his albums after that have been hit-or-miss, people. Like, he still has his moments, especially on Kamikaze, but for the most part, the records are bad, brethren.

Now, to be clear, Eminem’s rapping prowess should never be called into question. Keeping it a buck, his punchlines may be outdated sometimes, but his technical ability to rhyme words is unmatched, son. But, there’s more to music than just bars, man. In his prime, Em made really enjoyable, and very problematic, hits. These days, not so much, fam. The way I see it, all of his tracks end up being an exercise in how well he can write lyrics. That, coupled with overused subject matter, makes for a boring listen, bruh. So, I’m basically expecting the same from this new album, folks.

In the end, I’ll still give the album a chance, son. Ultimately, I’m not one to just judge music without a real reference point. By and by, maybe he’ll surprise me and put out some fire, man. Then again, I’m not getting my hopes up, fam. At the end of the day, only time will tell, bruh. All in all, I’ll get back to everyone about it. That is all. LC out.

Conor McGregor Doesn’t Deserve A Title Shot

So, let’s just skip the formalities and get straight to the point, son. On the real, enough is enough, man. Ok, yes, I completely understand that Conor McGregor is the biggest draw in MMA history. However, at some point, the nepotism has to fucking stop, fam. The fact of the matter is, McGregor does NOT deserve another title shot against Khabib Nurmagomedov. At least, not right now, bruh. With that being said, can Dana White and the UFC stop trying to force this fucking fight down our throats?

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, McGregor is scheduled to fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 on Saturday. Anyway, this is a big fight for a couple of reasons, son. First, it marks the return of the most-bankable star in MMA. Second, it features Cerrone, a dude who holds a shit-ton of UFC records. This includes most wins, most finishes, most bonuses, most head-kick knockouts, etc. Third, despite being booked at Welterweight, the bout has MASSIVE implications on the Lightweight division. Now, this is where my beef stems from, man. The fact is, this match should have NO baring on whether or not McGregor fights Khabib for the belt again.

For one, no matter how McGregor tries to paint it, he got dominated by Khabib in their 2018 fight. Listen, in a bout that lasted nearly four rounds, McGregor only won one and ended up tapping out. In any case, that was McGregor’s last fight in the Octagon. Regardless, White is out here saying that a rematch with Khabib could be next if McGregor gets past Cerrone. In addition, White stated that McGregor will be on standby for the April 18 championship fight between Khabib and Tony Ferguson, in case either fighter backs out. *Sigh* What the flying fuck, fam? I mean, would Cerrone get a title shot if he beats McGregor? Probably not. So, why would McGregor, coming off of a loss, get another crack at the man who made him quit? This is fucking nonsense, bruh. Look, he hasn’t done ANYTHING in the interim to warrant a do-over.

Also, where does Justin Gaethje fit into this equation? Like, he’s ranked higher than McGregor AND he’s on a three-fight win streak. Correction, he’s on a three-fight knockout streak, INCLUDING Cerrone! So, beating Cerrone would get McGregor a fight with Khabib but not for Gaethje? Come the fuck on, son! For God‘s sake, White and the UFC don’t even TRY to hide their bias, man. All I know is, the company is playing with these fighters’ lives, fam. Real talk, people like Gaethje are actually out here putting in the work and a guy like McGregor, simply because of name-value, is stealing their shine. It’s GROSSLY unfair, bruh.

In the end, there’s only one way to derail this train, son. Ultimately, Cerrone has to pull off a miracle and beat McGregor, man. By and by, the bullshit has to stop, fam. At the end of the day, McGregor has done NOTHING to earn the position that the UFC is trying to put him in. Frankly, I don’t care about what he’s accomplished before. Keeping it a buck, the division has passed him by and other fighters have WORKED for their current spot. So, stop fucking over the ones who truly deserve it. Then again, money reigns supreme and everything I’ve just said probably won’t matter, bruh. *Sigh* Only McGregor nut-huggers want this shit to happen, brethren. Needless to say, I’m not one of them. That is all. LC out.

Roddy Ricch Got Justin Bieber Looking Goofy

So, before I even begin, let me just say that “The Box” by Roddy Ricch is my SHIT, son. I mean, from the Justin Timberlake/Ciara sample to the “eee ooo” to the idea of Cash App‘ing a chick for soul removal, the entire record works, man. With that being said, I’m super glad that Roddy kept Justin Bieber from going #1, fam. All in all, the goofy shit has to stop, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Bieber also released some new music. Now, after a temporary break, Bieber came back to the scene with this “Yummy” record. From there, he gave his fans a bunch of instructions on how to make the song go #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Hell, fans had to download some shit, let it play all night, sacrifice a chicken AND solve for X, son. The point is, there was NOTHING organic about how Bieber was trying to play the game, man.

Now, to be fair, Bieber didn’t invent this strategy, fam. Shit, for a few albums now, I’ve seen Chris Brown do the same thing, bruh. However, I thought it was doofy when he did it too. Like, I understand that this is the music business and it’s a numbers-driven racket, but c’mon son. Real talk, if the record is that dope, the fans will flock to it, brethren. I mean, that’s EXACTLY what happened with Roddy Ricch. WE loved the record and that’s why it’s a hit right now, folks. Frankly, it’s hilarious that Bieber did all of this work just to come in second, people.

The fact of the matter is, Roddy put out a better song and the masses championed it. Side note, I’m 34 years old and had my first taste of vagina in 1997. All I know is, I’ve NEVER called it “that yummy.” Who the fuck did Bieber make that song for, son? People who’ve never had box themselves (pun intended)? Anyway, I appreciated the fact that Roddy shaded Bieber by telling fans to go stream “Yummy.” The fact is, Bieber was CLEARLY salty that his algorithm of steps didn’t work, man.

In the end, I wouldn’t be sad if I never heard “Yummy” again. But, I’m legitimately playing “The Box” as I write this, fam. Ultimately, the fans beat the algorithm, bruh. By and by, Bieber should just worry about making a better song and not trying to outsmart the system. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Despite the tone of this post, I actually fucks with some of Bieber’s music, son. On the real, both Journals and Purpose have bangers on them. Keeping it a buck, “Yummy” just wasn’t it, man. It happens, fam. Just go back to the drawing board and come out with some heat, bruh. Good day.

I Understand Will Smith’s Beef With Tupac

So, to cut to the chase, I understand Will Smith, son. I mean, if my wife was as close to another dude as Jada Pinkett Smith was to Tupac Shakur, I’d have a couple of eyebrows raised too. With that being said, it was pretty dope for Smith to show that level of transparency, man. All in all, I wonder how everyone else would REALLY react if they were in his shoes. The way I see it, I feel like a lot of people would’ve wanted to engage in some fisticuffs, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Smith and Martin Lawrence are currently doing a press run for their new movie, Bad Boys for Life. Now, during a sit-down with Power 105.1‘s The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God asked Smith about his wife’s relationship with Shakur. To be more specific, he asked Smith if he was ever jealous of Jada’s friendship with Tupac. In response, Smith said “fuck yeah.” Taking it a step further, Smith admitted that despite the fact that Jada and Shakur weren’t physical, he was insecure about the love that they had for each other. In fact, he stated that he could never bring himself to be cool with Tupac because he couldn’t handle the bond between the two of them.

Now, look, I try my best to be a progressive dude, but fuck all that, bruh. Ok, yes, Jada and Tupac apparently never had sex with each other. However, that wasn’t for a lack of trying, son. Real talk, Jada already copped to the fact that her and Tupac kissed before. Yeah, she also said that they didn’t have any “sexual chemistry,” but I’m not rolling, man. Listen, I just have a hard time believing that they were as platonic as Jada makes it seem, fam. In my eyes, they were probably one drunken night away from rocking each other’s bells, bruh.

To be clear, I wholeheartedly believe that men and women can just be friends. On the real, I’m friends with a good number of women that I would never touch, son. Side note, that used to be a source of contention between my wife and I early in our relationship. Frankly, she struggled to believe that I wasn’t just trying to smash everyone. But, alas, no lines have been crossed, man. Anyway, if Jada and Tupac ever saw one another in the right light, even for a second, Will would be a distant fucking memory, fam. So, I completely understand his hesitation to get close to Tupac.

In the end, I’m sure there are people out there who will disagree with me, bruh. Ultimately, we’ll never know how that story would’ve turned out, son. By and by, maybe things were exactly like Jada said and there would’ve been no issue. Then again, maybe Tupac would’ve cashed in on their love and taken Jada from the “soft rapper.” At the end of the day, my Spidey-Sense says that Smith was right for keeping Tupac at arms-length, man. Shit, based on the way that he was wilin’ back then, who knows what Shakur might’ve done, fam. That is all. LC out.

‘Power’ Recap: Paz Is The Dumbest Motherf*cker Ever

Disclaimer: I’m sure everybody understands how spoilers work, son. Act accordingly.

So, despite the fact that I’ve seen every single episode of Power, I believe that I’ve only written about the show twice. Side bar, in both cases, I was busy cursing out Tariq St. Patrick. In any case, last night’s episode was so preposterous, I felt obligated to talk about it, son. With that being said, let’s get into all of Paz Valdes‘ unscrupulous shenanigans.

Ok, before I even continue, let me make one thing clear, man. Real talk, NOBODY asked for a Paz Valdes episode, fam. Like, who gives a flying fuckity-fuck about Angela Valdes‘ sister, bruh? Shit, I barely gave a fuck about Angela, son. So, why would the team at Starz dedicate an entire hour to this doof of a woman? All I know is, NOTHING she does in this episode makes sense, people. So, let’s talk about some of her tomfoolery.

To begin, despite the fact that EVERY law enforcement agency has advised her that James St. Patrick didn’t kill Angela, Paz is still on a kamikaze mission. Now, since she’s hell-bent on bringing Ghost down, she makes several idiotic moves. First, she goes to Ghost‘s club and tries to get him to confess on tape. When that doesn’t work, she turns over incriminating evidence against her sister with the hope that it’ll bring down Ghost too. When that doesn’t work, she tries to convince Tommy Egan to kill Ghost, which is hilarious because Egan is the one who ACTUALLY killed Angela. Finally, after ensuring that her family will never get Angela’s pension, Paz turns down the money left in Ghost’s will. Meaning, her son and her father will continue to suffer under the weight of poverty.

Furthermore, the believability of this show continues to be nonexistent, man. Am I really supposed to believe that Paz would be able to sneak a gun into Ghost’s club? Especially since he’s running for Lieutenant Governor of New York? Man, if y’all don’t knock it the fuck off, fam. Keeping it a buck, Power stopped being realistic after Kanan Stark miraculously made it out of a burning building. Since then, the dialogue has been trash and the plot has been ridiculous. The truth is, I’m only watching the show because I need to finish what I started, bruh. At this point, I’m too far in to stop now, brethren. Side note, there’s a sexual pun in there, but I’ll just leave that in the air.

In the end, miss me with the Paz Valdes stupidity. Ultimately, no one needed this episode, son. By and by, Angela wasn’t as innocent as Paz likes to think she was. At the end of the day, Angela was a willing participant in Ghost’s nefarious activities. So, she got herself in the middle of some shit she had no business being in. From there, the streets did what the streets do, man. All I can say is, good riddance to the entire Valdes family, fam. That is all. LC out.
