Shut Up, ‘The Punisher’ Is On!

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. Listen, The Punisher has finally been released on Netflix and that’s all I care about, man. Basically, watching this show is the only thing on my agenda in the immediate future, fam. Real talk, I’ve been waiting for this series for too long, bruh. All in all, I’m having a hard time keeping my excitement at bay, folks. With that being said, if anyone has my number, don’t call me. I’ll be glued to my TV until I’ve completed every episode.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say here, son. Frank Castle was the best character in Daredevil and it’s about time that Netflix put this show out, man. Keeping it a buck, I’m having a hard time maintaining my focus at work, fam. All I want to do is go home and witness the rampage, bruh. By and by, I guess I can wait a couple of more hours, folks. Ultimately, everyone can reacquaint themselves with the trailer below. Viva la Punisher! LC out.

I Blame The Music For Lil Peep’s Death

So, I won’t lie, son. I know almost nothing about Lil Peep, man. On the real, I can’t name an album, sing a hook or describe a beat, fam. However; I was aware of him because of my relentless pursuit of “the new” on music blog sites. With that being said, I was a little alarmed when I learned of his death, bruh. I mean, if early reports are true, then he might’ve died from a drug overdose. Now, if that’s the case, then I wholeheartedly blame the music for this shit, folks. All in all, waaaaay too much fuck shit is glorified in a lot of these songs.

Ok, before I continue, let me get one thing out of the way, son. Yes, I’m fully aware of the fact that questionable behavior has been perpetuated in music since its inception. Shit, when I was growing up in the 1990s, damn near every rapper claimed to be a Tony Montana-level drug dealer, man. However; we’re living in a time right now where drug abuse is the “coolest” thing to do, fam. Look, musicians have always done drugs, but I can’t recall another period where the exaltation is sooooo prevalent, bruh.

Now, if I’m being honest, I’m a part of the problem, son. Hell, I’ve stated multiple times that I’m a big Future fan, man. In any case, he’s one of the main proponents of this drug culture, fam. Like, he just had a Top 5 hit where the chorus talks about Molly and Percocet, bruh. If we’re keeping it a buck here, young kids are listening to and absorbing ALL of the shit, people! Real talk, Lil Peep was only 21 years old! He was CLEARLY raised in this drug-enthusiast era. Frankly, we all need to take responsibility for this shit, folks.

In the end, I’m not saying that artists should completely abandon their subject matter. On the real, if that’s the lifestyle they’re living, then I’d expect to litter their lines with references. However; everyone needs to be mindful of who’s listening to their records. Yeah, it’s easy to say that an artist isn’t a role model until they convince a child to do some wild shit, son. Ultimately, if we’re really going to talk about drugs, then we also need to talk about the downside, man. By and by, it’s all fun and games until someone loses their life, fam. All I can say is, Rest In Peace to Lil Peep, bruh. LC out.

P.S. The dude was on a track called “Overdose,” son. Shit, in my eyes, that’s enough to showcase the issue that I’m talking about, man. *Sigh* As a culture, we all need to do better and monitor the bullshit that we’re feeding to the next generation, fam. That is all.

Donald Trump Just Confused Two Mass Shootings

So, when I woke up this morning, I planned on writing about the latest shooting in California. I mean, my plan was to talk about the fuckery that Kevin Janson Neal inflicted on Tehama County. Now, I’m still going to speak about this tragedy, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on Donald Trump‘s response to the tragedy. Basically, y’alls President confused one mass shooting with another one, son. Worse yet, he didn’t even bother to change the template of his tweet before he sent it out.

Ok, before I continue, let me talk about the matter at hand, man. Now, for those who missed it, just yesterday, Kevin Neal opened fire on a myriad of people. Apparently, he was at odds with his neighbors and decided to kill them. From there, he drove around town, in stolen cars, and fired on unsuspecting folks. Ultimately, he ended up at an elementary school and tried to wreak havoc, fam. All in all, in the aftermath of his attack, four people were dead and another ten were injured. Frankly, if the school faculty didn’t react quicker, there could’ve been more bloodshed, fam.

Now, it goes without saying that this situation is terrible, bruh. Luckily, none of the children were killed, but one was hurt during the chaos. With that being said, my condolences to everyone who was affected by this horror. On the real, it’s insane that this was the third mass shooting in under two months, son. First, it was Las Vegas and then it was Texas. At this point, I’m not even sure of what needs to be done here, man. Like, none of the community’s suggestions are even entertained by our elected officials, fam. Honestly, people just keep on dying, folks.

Moving on, on its own, the shooting would’ve been bad enough, son. However; Trump found a way to make it worse by hitting his Twitter account. So, in the wake of the incident, Trump tweeted out “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.” Now, if anyone is paying attention, they’d know that he just referenced the wrong shooting. Even worse, he copied and pasted a nearly identical message that he sent when the real Texas shooting happened. Look, this man didn’t even have the wherewithal or the respect to get the place right, man! Like, I’m at a fucking loss for words, fam!

Look, his reaction is fucked up on multiple levels, bruh. First, we’ve gotten to a point where mass shootings are the norm now. As a nation, we’ve become so desensitized to this kind of violence that all we offer victims are “thoughts and prayers.” Because of this, the fucking President thought it was okay to have a mass shooting tweet template. Next, it takes a special kind of asshole to not even bother getting the location right. Real talk, no Trump apologist can make this faux pas okay, son. This man clearly doesn’t give a flying fuck about the American people!

In the end, I have nothing else to say here, man. Ultimately, I don’t hate many people, but Donald Trump is ABSOLUTELY on that list, fam! He is, without question, one of the worst things to ever happen to this nation, bruh. By and by, as long as he’s in control, we’re doomed, folks. There’s no other way to cut it or slice it, people. That is all. LC out.

Long Live Colin Kaepernick!

So, I won’t lie, son. My goal is to keep this post short today, man. I mean, at this point, I’ve written multiple articles about the movement that Colin Kaepernick has started, fam. However; I’d be remiss if I didn’t shout the dude out for his GQ cover, bruh. Now, I know there are TONS of salty people out there right now. All in all, if these folks would take their heads out of their asses, they’d understand why the magazine named Kaepernick their “Citizen of the Year.”

Ok, for those who missed it, GQ pulled a G move and put Kaepernick on one of their covers. Now, even though he took pictures for the publication, he left the actual commentary to people like Harry Belafonte, Ava DuVernay, J. Cole and Eric Reid. The way I see it, he’d much rather let his actions do the talking, son. In any case, as expected, a number of people are upset about the magazine’s choice. However; I’ve already gone into detail about the hypocrisy of his detractors in previous posts.

In the end, nothing else needs to be said here, man. Folks need to just go out and read the article, fam. Once again, congrats to Kaepernick for shifting the culture and a big shout-out to GQ for taking this type of chance. Ultimately, Kaepernick never protested for attention, bruh. Nevertheless, he sacrificed his career so he could illuminate an important message. Salute, sir! LC out.

Et Tu, Louis C.K.?

So, I pride myself on being objective, son. Like, that’s one of the most important things in the world to me, man. In my eyes, the only way to be truthful in this life is to be objective, fam. Otherwise, we’ll just hang onto our own biases and ignore any evidence to the contrary. With that being said, I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t call out Louis C.K., bruh. I mean, despite the fact that he’s my second favorite comedian of all time, the allegations against him are disheartening, folks. *Sigh* All in all, not even he is safe from getting this work, people. In any case, let’s just get to it.

Ok, for those who are unaware, I’m a HUGE comedy fan. Whether we’re talking about sitcoms, cartoons or movies, I’m down for it all, son. Anyway, keeping it a buck, I’m a stand-up comedy buff more than anything, man. Now, when I say I’m a real fan, I mean to the point that I seriously considered doing open mics myself, fam. All I can say is, thank God I decided to do a blog instead, bruh. Moving on, that’s what brought Louis C.K. to my attention. I discovered him on an episode of Comedy Central Presents and I’ve been a diehard fan ever since. Frankly, outside of Dave Chappelle, Louis is my favorite comedian ever.

Listen, being real, I gave all of that background so I could illustrate to everyone how crushed I was when I heard about the allegations against him. Apparently, according to The New York Times, he has an affinity for (unwarrantedly) masturbating in front of women. So far, five women have accused Louis of randomly pulling out his member and jerking off in their presence. Now, that would be cool if they asked for it, but none of these women were onboard for his advances, son. *Sigh* I guess Louis is just another example of Hollywood fuckery, man.

Now, instead of denying the allegations, Louis confirmed the tomfoolery, fam. In a statement released by his publicist, Louis admitted to abusing his power. According to him, he previously thought his actions were okay because he asked the women first. However; he now realizes that he placed these ladies in an impossible situation. These women were just trying to advance their careers and Louis took advantage of them. Instead of helping them further themselves in the business, he tried to get himself laid, bruh.

In the end, fuck, man. Why did Louis have to go and mess everything up, son? I mean, the drop is already happening, fam. So far, FX and HBO have ended their respective relationships with him. In addition, several premieres for his new movie, I️ Love You, Daddy, have been cancelled. Listen, why do so many famous people behave this way, bruh? Like, they can get ass if they want to, people! Just wait for the woman who’s down for the action. Ultimately, all I can do is shake my head. That is all. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘Pit Stop’

It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you, without a dope beat to step to…” What’s the word, good people? Welcome back to New Music Fridays, son! Ok, I need to quickly apologize for missing my last scheduled date. Frankly, I had temporary writer’s block, man. On the real, I couldn’t come up with anything that I was happy with dropping, fam. In any case, I’ve finally got my shit together and we’re back to our regularly scheduled program, bruh.

Now, some people may recognize the title of today’s song. Previously, I released a different joint titled “Pit Stop.” However; I was never 100% happy with that beat, son. So, I decided to reproduce the track, make a new beat and write some new lyrics. With that being said, here we are, man. Per usual, everyone can stream/download the song on SoundCloud and stream the song on YouTube. Let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, fam! LC out.

Congrats, Braxton Winston!

So, this post is going to be short today, son. Basically, I just want to take the time out to congratulate my dude Braxton Winston on winning a seat on the Charlotte City Council. All I know is, North Carolina made the right move on Tuesday, man. They just gave a motivated man the opportunity to make a real difference in the community. With that being said, salute to him and salute to the city for believing in him!

Ok, for those who missed it, I wrote about Braxton when he first began his campaign. Now, even though I couldn’t vote in North Carolina, I still wanted to do something/anything to help his cause. In any case, I’m SUPER hyped that he was able to make this happen! Even though the real work begins now, I’m positive he’ll be ready for it, fam. In the end, nothing else needs to be said here, bruh. Congrats, Braxton!
