New Music Fridays: LC ‘QLC’ EP

Ok, ok, ok. Yes, I know what I said in my last New Music Fridays post, son. I said I was going to drop a new song with my homie Zeyi. Listen, no need to fret, bredren. I promise I will drop that song soon. However; for today’s release, I’d like to revisit another previous project of mine. Look, I guarantee there’s a method to my madness, man.

So, quick assessment about me. I’m a bit of a self-saboteur, man. In addition, my mood can change very quickly. Meaning, I could like something one moment and be indifferent about it the next moment. In any case, I treat my own music the same way sometimes. I’m in my own head way too much, bruh. Yes, it can be maddening, man. With that being said, despite the fact that I first released this QLC EP in March of 2013, I randomly deleted it out of the blue. No, it doesn’t make any damn sense, son. I truly have no explanation for my actions, fam.

Moving on, now that I’m regularly releasing music again, I feel like I should put all of my work out there. So, for today, I’m re-releasing this EP. For the tracks, I used a couple of beats from 9th Wonder‘s Tutankhamen instrumental album. Side note, once again, shout-out to my dude Rick Torres for mixing and mastering the project. Also, shout-out to Zeyi and YoFoy for gracing me with their vocals. Anyway, per usual, everyone can stream/download the records from SoundCloud and/or stream them on YouTube. Let’s just keep the momentum going, son. LC out.

Greg Gianforte: The Stone Cold Steve Austin Of Politics

Bruh, what manner of fuckery is this? I mean, is this how our politicians are getting down now? Look, I know we’re in the age of Donald Trump, but there has to be a limit to the foolishness, right? Son, Greg Gianforte really just took a hatred of the press to the next level. For a moment, he forgot he was running for Congress and took up Stone Cold Steve Austin‘s mantle. All I know is, I’m not sure how practicing wrestling moves can help a campaign.

Now, I won’t lie, son. When I first heard the story I’m about to tell, I laughed. Like, I couldn’t fathom the idea of a politician doing what Gianforte did, man. So, for those who are unaware, Gianforte physically attacked a reporter. It all began when Ben Jacobs, a journalist from The Guardian, walked into Gianforte’s campaign headquarters and put a recorder in front of Gianforte. Apparently, he wanted to know Gianforte’s take on the latest Congressional Budget Office report. This newly-released document stated that 23 million people would lose health insurance under the recently-approved American Health Care Act. Needless to say, Gianforte wasn’t thrilled by the question.

From there, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck, body slammed him and then started punching him in the face. Now, how do we know all of this? Because Alicia Acuna, a Fox News reporter, was one of the people in the room when the assault occurred. Meaning, they were able to refute Gianforte’s claim that Jacobs was physically aggressive towards him. All in all, Gianforte went into Wolverine berserker mode and started bugging out on Jacobs.

Man, what in the fuckity-fuck is good in these streets? Son, this dude is running for Congress? Like, he’s trying to be down with the House of Representatives? For real?! How the fuck can anyone in Montana vote for this dude if he behaves like this? How can this man be trusted by anyone? For God‘s sake, he attacked a man for asking him a question! How does that action exude any type of leadership or self-control? At this point, Montana should be ashamed of themselves if they elect this clown. Hell, he was just arrested for what he did to Jacobs. Ultimately, he doesn’t deserve a seat in the House, fam.

In the end, our political system has gone to Hell, son. Listen, I literally can’t guess what will happen next with our elected officials. Seriously, everyone has lost their fucking minds around here. At this rate, I might really have to run for office, man. I mean, I’m competent enough, right? Right?! Yeah, I thought so. LC out.

When Will We Call A Hate Crime A Hate Crime?

Man, stories like this make me fucking furious, bruh! Like, we live in a time where we can’t just call shit what it is. Look, instead of attacking situations head on, people would much rather beat around the bush. All I know is, I’m not one of those people, man. The way I see it, the murder of Richard Collins III was a hate crime, fam. All in all, just one look at Sean Urbanski‘s life can tell us all we need to know about that coward. With that being said, the police and the FBI NEED to do the right thing!

Now, for those who are unaware, let me give a brief synopsis of this story. To begin, Collins was a US Army Second Lieutenant who was about to graduate from Bowie State University. In any case, while visiting some friends at the University of Maryland, Collins and company were approached by Urbanski. So, after making threatening comments to Collins and his crew, Urbanski pulled out a knife and stabbed Collins in the chest. Ultimately, Collins was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Moving on, upon further inspection of Urbanski’s daily life, we learn that he belongs to an “Alt-Reich Nation” group on Facebook. Apparently, this particular group specializes in hating on women, Hispanics, Jews and Black people. Now, with all of that being said, why are we confused about whether or not this murder was a hate crime? I mean, a clown who openly embraces racist rhetoric randomly killed an unsuspecting Black man. Listen, am I really supposed to believe this wasn’t racially motivated? Man, get the fuck outta here, son!

In the end, nothing else needs to be said here. Richard Collins III deserves supreme justice. His promising life was cut short because bigots are becoming more emboldened by the day. By and by, if the authorities want us to believe that they actually stand for something, then Urbanski needs to be thrown under the jail. Anything less than a hate crime charge will not suffice, son. *Sigh* I’m fucking tired of this shit, man. LC out.

Chaos At An Ariana Grande Concert

Man, I’m speechless right now, son. Honestly, I don’t have a lot to say about last night’s terrorist attack in Manchester, England. All I know is, the entire situation is fucked up, fam. I mean, beyond fucked up, man. Ultimately, I want to give my condolences to anybody who lost a loved one due to this unnecessary act of violence. In addition, I hope for a full recovery for anyone who was injured in the attack. At this point, we really all need each other, man.

So, keeping it a buck, I’d be surprised if someone didn’t hear about last night’s tragedy. In any case, at the conclusion of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena, an explosion erupted. This lead to the death of 22 people and the injury of 59 more. As of now, not much else is know about the situation, except that Salman Abedi is the alleged suicide bomber.

Now, in terms of Abedi, he was apparently a 23-year-old British national who was “known to authorities.” Also, ISIS has come forward to claim responsibility for this senseless act. With that being said, I don’t even know what to make of that because ISIS loves to take credit for shit without any verifiable proof. Anyway, regardless of whatever organization he belonged to, Abedi took it upon himself to harm and kill innocent people. Once again, religious/political agendas seem to be at the helm of chaos and dispair. Look, enough is fucking enough, fam!

In the end, I don’t know what else to say here, man. Listen, this is simply a terrible situation, son. Hopefully, we can get to the bottom of this as soon as possible. In my eyes, someone needs to go down for this shit. Too many people have paid the ultimate cost for this shit to go unanswered. By and by, if ISIS is really behind this debacle, they need to be eradicated once and for all. *Sigh* That’s all I’ve got, man. That’s all I’ve got. LC out.

FutureHive: Leave Russell Wilson Alone

So, to begin, it’s no secret that I’m the treasurer of #FutureHive. I mean, I’ve confirmed this on my platform numerous times. In any case, I have a message for my fellow bredren: I think it’s about time we left Russell Wilson alone. Ultimately, a man shouldn’t be attacked for being a good stepdad. All in all, Wilson should be applauded for taking an active role in Future‘s son’s life. On the real, any thought to the contrary is truly misguided.

So, I was inspired to write this post because Wilson has taken some unnecessary heat over the last few weeks. The fuckery began on this past Mother’s Day. In the middle of an Instagram post to Ciara, Wilson used the words “our kids.” Now, for anyone who is unaware, in addition to Baby Future, Wilson and Ciara just had a biological child together. Needless to say, #FutureHive wasn’t with the shits and bashed Wilson for claiming Baby Future as his own.

Moving on, the second hit came on Baby Future’s birthday. So, in another IG post, Wilson showed love to the little tike and christened himself “Papa Russ.” Anyway, as we can all imagine, the pro-Future crowd wasn’t happy with this proclamation either. Once again, Wilson was criticized for not being Baby Future’s “real dad” and for “disrespecting Future.”

Ok, with all of that being said, I feel like Wilson’s detractors are missing the big picture here. Look, what the fuck else should Wilson be doing? I mean, if we’re all keeping it a buck, Baby Future spends more time with Wilson than Future. Bruh, he’s married to the child’s mother, for God‘s sake. I really don’t believe he’s trying to usurp Future as the boy’s father. He’s just showing the child as much love as he possibly can. Shit, what do people really want, fam? Would they be happier if he treated the child like shit and only paid attention to his biological seed? Man, I’m pretty sure Wilson would be crucified for that too.

Listen, Wilson is doing what a good stepparent is supposed to do. In the grand scheme of things, it’s better when a stepparent shows a child that type of attention. It ensures that the kid never feels less than or underappreciated. Frankly, it creates a more balanced household and provides a loving environment for everyone involved. Ultimately, if Baby Future is loved by Future, Ciara AND Wilson, is that really a bad thing? In any case, hating on a man for loving his wife’s son is fucking ridiculous, man. We all need to grow up, fam.

In the end, let Russell Wilson live. If Baby Future is happy and Ciara is happy, then no one else’s opinion matters. Shit, if some of these naysayers got more hugs when they were younger, then maybe they wouldn’t be so damn bitter, son. In the words of Funkmaster Flex, “who you mad at? Me or yourself?” LC out.

What Just Happened In Times Square?!

To be real, I don’t even know what to say right now, man. Honestly, I can’t make heads or tails of this story, son. All I know is, Richard Rojas lost his fucking mind in Times Square yesterday. Apparently, under the influence of PCP, Rojas thought it was a good idea to run down pedestrians with his car. Ultimately, my thoughts are with all of his victims during their time of need and sorrow.

Now, keeping it a buck, I really want to know this man’s motive. So far, journalists have only discovered a little bit about the assailant. From what I’ve seen, Rojas is a Navy veteran from the Bronx, who’s been arrested multiple times for drunken driving. In addition, his family claims that he’s been different ever since he returned from the Navy. According to their recollections, after his tenure in the military, he began abusing alcohol and weed.

In any case, Rojas has a history of being violent. For example, during his time in the Navy, he attacked a cabdriver instead of paying him. Also, he’s made numerous threats towards law enforcement. With all of that being said, I have no idea why this fucking guy was allowed behind the wheel in the first place. I mean, he’s clearly unstable, man. Now, fast forward to yesterday, Rojas took his Honda Accord, hopped the curb and began to rampage. This resulted in the death of Alyssa Elsman and the injury of another two dozen people.

All in all, in my eyes, Rojas needs therapy AND prison. While I do believe there’s something wrong with this dude, I also believe he needs to pay for his actions. *Sigh* This is fucking ridiculous, man. Much love to all of the people who were unfairly affected by his carnage. In the end, it’s a damn shame that people had to suffer under such random circumstances. LC out.

No Justice For Terence Crutcher

*Sigh* I’m devastated right now, man. Like, I’m having a hard time even putting my thoughts into words, fam. I mean, I don’t know what’s worse; the fact that Betty Shelby got away with murdering Terence Crutcher or the fact that I’m not even shocked by the verdict. Bruh, the jury couldn’t even convict her of manslaughter? Manslaughter?! A man was shot after his car broke down and his killer couldn’t even get the minimum charge? Honestly, why would Black people EVER trust in the injustice system, son?

Now, I could write an entire dissertation here, but what’s the point, man? What’s the fucking point anymore? All I know is, the cycle never ends. My people die and America doesn’t give a shit. The worse part is, America doesn’t even pretend to give a shit either. Look, Shelby’s lawyer said she was “elated” that she got off. Shit, this woman took a human being’s life and she couldn’t give a single fuck, bruh. At this point, I’m freakishly calm because I don’t know how to properly channel my rage. All in all, I just want to say Rest In Peace to Terence Crutcher.

Ultimately, I have nothing else to say, man. Fuck this shit. LC out.
