T.I. Couldn’t WAIT To Diss Floyd Mayweather

Look, before I even begin, let me tell everyone where I stand on Floyd Mayweather. On the real, he’s a sellout, plain and simple. He was a sellout when he defended Donald Trump’s “grab ‘em by the pussy” comments. He was a sellout when he spoke up on behalf of Donald Sterling. Shit, he was a sellout when he beat up his child’s mother, son. All in all, I’m not surprised by Mayweather’s support of Gucci. In any case, T.I. has VERY personal reasons for dissing Mayweather, man. Ok, yeah, he can pretend like it’s about Mayweather’s Gucci comments, but it’s really about Tiny Harris, fam. All I know is, Tip ain’t low, bruh.

Ok, for those who don’t know the backstory, here’s a quick synopsis: a couple of years ago, during a turbulent time in their marriage, Tiny was seen running around town with Mayweather. From there, Tip ran up on Mayweather at a Fatburger and tried to engage in fisticuffs. Anyway, despite Tiny’s denials about any affair with Mayweather, a lot of people, including myself, still think something went down. Needless to say, if I believed another man smashed my wife, I’d DEFINITELY harbor some ill will towards that dude, son.

So, fast forward to today, Tip just released a new song. Now, for anyone who missed it, the song is called “Fuck Nigga” and it takes aim at Mayweather for not being down with the Gucci boycott. On the record, Tip calls Mayweather out for only thinking about himself and not caring about the plight of his people. All I can say is, on face value, it appears as if Tip is being socially conscious. However, I can’t help but think about his personal investment in all of this, man. Side bar, we already know how I feel about this boycott, fam. Real talk, Gucci shouldn’t matter that much to us anyway.

In the end, people can listen to the song for themselves. By and by, I’ve embedded the track below, so go to town, folks. Ultimately, we need to stop depending on celebrities to do the right thing, bruh. Frankly, no one would put up with Mayweather’s shenanigans if he wasn’t rich. At the end of the day, we really shouldn’t value money that much more than morals, son. I mean, Mayweather has shown us on multiple occasions that he’s a terrible person, man. The way I see it, his bank account and his Philly Shell don’t make up for his bullshit, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Trump Supporters: F*ck Your Tax Returns

So, I’m going to try and keep it brief today, son. I mean, I’ve already spent a great deal of time talking about Donald Trump and his supporters, man. But, in honor of tax season, I would like to address some of my disgruntled GOP compatriots. Listen, I don’t give a fuck about anyone’s tax returns, fam. Well, that’s not entirely true. Like, I care about taxes because of how they’ll affect me too. However, if this is the only reason why some people have Trump remorse, then I kinda hate those folks, bruh.

Ok, for those who haven’t filed their taxes yet, be prepared for a rude awakening, son. Apparently, thanks to President Orange’s new tax code, all of us are getting fucked with our returns, man. Basically, as of right now, returns are about 8% lower than usual. All I know is, I don’t like cats fucking with my money, fam. Shit, citizens work hard all year, hoping we’ll see some get-back from the IRS. However, all we get in return is the government taking more earnings from us, bruh. Frankly, the shit is disgusting, brethren.

In any case, I’m not here to argue about where my money went, son. Nah, I’m here to talk about the Republicans who are upset with this current situation. So, tax returns were the straw that broke the camel’s back, huh? Not the government shutdown over a border wall? Not the discrimination against transgender soldiers? Not the rhetoric against Muslims? Not the horde of dummies going to prison on Trump’s behalf? This? This is the time where Trump went too far? *Sigh* For God’s sake, the lack of empathy is just jarring, man. On the real, folks really don’t care about atrocities until they are DIRECTLY affected, fam. All I can say is, I have ZERO sympathy for these individuals.

In the end, I’m surprised that I can still be surprised, bruh. Ultimately, I just have to come to grips with the fact that there are a lot of trash ass people in this country, son. By and by, I know I’ll be sad when I file my taxes, man. At the end of the day, I should’ve known better than to expect the government to work in our best interests, fam. That is all. LC out.

Why Do We Care About Gucci?

Look, I have a question for all of my minority brethren out there. Seriously, why do we give a fuck about Gucci? Why do we give a fuck about H&M? For that matter, why do we give a fuck about ANY of these corporations? On the real, why do we allow ourselves to be “hurt” by entities that have never cared about us? At this point, NO ONE should be surprised when a conglomerate does something stupid. The way I see it, we need to stop supporting ALL businesses that don’t support us. Period.

So, for those who weren’t paying attention, Gucci got their blackface on. Anyway, the shenanigans began when they advertised a black turtleneck with red lips to cover a person’s mouth. Now, I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone why that’s ridiculous, son. I mean, just look at the embedded picture, man. Like, really? Really, Gucci? Listen, am I supposed to believe that NO employee saw that sweater and said “that ain’t it, chief”? To make matters worse, Gucci was trying to charge folks $900 for this travesty, fam. Keeping it a buck, I don’t even know what to say here, bruh.

Listen, this isn’t the first time that a company has spit in the faces of “melanated” folk. Real talk, weren’t we just mad at H&M for their “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie like a year ago? The point is, we put so much stock in corporations that don’t have our best interests at heart. The question is, why? Like, why don’t we just support our own people who work in these same fields? Look, I know Dapper Dan is trying to be the middleman, but I’d rather buy directly from him, son. Dan was the MAN in Harlem before these same vultures conspired to take him down. Now, I won’t knock him for teaming up with Gucci, but he was a certified legend without them, fam.

In the end, my point is simple, bruh. Ultimately, we need to leave these companies alone, son. By and by, we need to pool our resources together and champion people in our communities. At the end of the day, fuck a boycott, man. In my eyes, these entities should’ve never had such control over us in the first place. So, instead of “improving” Gucci, let’s focus on putting our own brethren in positions of influence, fam. Frankly, these high-powered losers don’t deserve our money anyway. That is all. LC out.

Drake Is Right About The Grammys

So, I won’t lie, son. As an aspiring musician, I would love to win a Grammy one day. On the real, I’m not going to pretend like I wouldn’t want that gold trophy on my mantle, man. However, I’m not one of those artists who believes that my art would be defined by a metal gramophone. With that being said, I 1000% agree with Drake’s acceptance speech. Real talk, as long as artists have dedicated fans, they’ve already won, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Drake actually showed up to the Grammy Awards last night. Anyway, his song “God’s Plan” ended up winning the award for Best Rap Song. Now, when Drake went up onstage to get his trophy, he kept it super funky with everyone watching. Essentially, he told all of the artists that awards like this don’t define them. According to Aubrey, as long as musicians have fans willing to support their songs, they don’t need validation from antiquated institutions. All I know is, he’s absolutely right, bruh.

Listen, the Grammys have notoriously gotten shit wrong when it comes to Hip-Hop and R&B, son. I mean, Herbie Hancock is a damn legend, but there’s no way his album was better than Kanye West’s Graduation, man. There’s no way that Taylor Swift’s 1989 was better than Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. Shit, even Adele knew that 25 wasn’t better than Beyoncé’s Lemonade, fam. She basically said as much during her acceptance speech, bruh. The point is, artists, especially Black artists, need to realize that these awards don’t make or break them. All in all, they’re winners regardless, brethren.

In the end, the Grammys ain’t low for cutting Drake’s speech short, son. Yeah, the committee tried to say they thought he was finished, but we don’t believe that, man. Ultimately, Drake used his platform to say some real shit and the powers that be didn’t like it, fam. By and by, he’s still the biggest artist in the world and there’s nothing they can do about it, bruh. At the end of the day, folks ain’t gonna stop bumping Drake because the Grammys are mad at him, people. It is what it is. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I’m going to try my best to leave Jennifer Lopez alone, son. All I can say is, I don’t know what Motown she ever watched, man. The fact is, I wasn’t here for her “Jenny From The Block” remix of Berry Gordy’s brainchild, fam. And I’m a Bronx dude saying that, bruh. *Sigh* Good day.

Will Anybody Learn From 6ix9ine’s Situation?

So, here we are, son? After all of the trolling and nonstop shenanigans, the shit has finally hit the fan, man. Now, let me be clear, fam. I would never wish this situation on anybody, bruh. Yeah, I’ve been critical of 6ix9ine in the past. All I can say is, I stand by everything I’ve said, brethren. However, there was no reason for his story to go so left, folks. All in all, 6ix9ine’s ordeal needs to be a wake-up call for the young ones out here. Frankly, street shit ain’t nothing to fuck with, people.

Ok, for those living under a rock, Daniel Hernandez, b.k.a. Tekashi 6ix9ine, is in a world of manure. Now, after being picked up by the Feds for all sorts of crimes, 6ix9ine decided to plead guilty. Moving on, in addition to copping to 9 felony charges, he’s also agreed to cooperate with authorities. Meaning, 6ix9ine is about to start telling on all of his Nine Trey brothers. Apparently, he’s already admitted to helping the crew shoot at people, rob people and move drugs.

Listen, I don’t want to seem preachy, but social media championed this nonsense, son. On the real, any time an OG tried to tell 6ix9ine to chill, they were called “haters” or “old” or whatever else, man. Any time someone advised him against his behavior, internet losers said he was “winning” because of his antics. Well, does this look like winning now? I mean, was all of the tomfoolery worth it? Shit, due to his potential cooperation, 6ix9ine might end up in the Witness Protection Program. So, tell me again how he’s “winning,” fam.

In the end, I have nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, I hope all of these young cats learn something from this. By and by, there are certain elements that aren’t for play play, son. The streets are definitely one of those elements, man. At the end of the day, I’m certain that 6ix9ine would do all of this differently, man. Sad part is, he’ll most likely never get the chance, fam. *Sigh* C’est la vie, brethren. C’est la vie. LC out.

I Am Finally Done With The New York Knicks

Good morning, everyone. My name is Lawrence Charles and I’m a lifelong New York Knicks fan. Moving on, I was there when John Starks went 2-18 from the field in Game 7 of the 1994 NBA Finals against the Houston Rockets. I was there when Patrick Ewing missed a game-tying finger roll in Game 7 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Indiana Pacers. I was there when the organization traded away half of the Eastern Seaboard to sign Carmelo Anthony. However, I’ve had enough, son. *Sigh* After decades of nonstop tomfoolery, I’ve finally had enough, man.

Ok, for those who missed it, the Knicks decided to trade Kristaps Porzingis, our most promising player, to Luka Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks. Now, along with Porzingis, the team has also given away Trey Burke, Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. All this in exchange for Wesley Matthews, Dennis Smith Jr., DeAndre Jordan and two future first-round picks. Apparently, Porzingis, who’s also coming off of injury, asked to be traded because he wasn’t down with the direction of the organization. Frankly, I don’t blame him, fam.

Listen, the Knicks have been arguably (not arguably) the worst organization in professional sports. I mean, we have a long, long, LONG history of making terrible fucking decisions, bruh. On the real, why would Porzingis trust the team’s direction, son? Seriously, when have we showcased ANY intelligence when it comes to building a competent squad? Keeping it a buck, I already know we’re going to fuck up those future first-round picks, man. Shit, we’re absolutely atrocious when it comes to selecting decent players, fam.

To make matters worse, Knicks management has almost certainly shot us in the foot for free agency, bruh. Like, why would Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving come here if we don’t have Porzingis, son? Real talk, he was one of our biggest draws, man. Hell, he was one of the only bright spots on a team that has a SUPER checkered past, fam. All I know is, I want to break things and hit people, brethren. All jokes aside, I can’t take any more of this sustained abuse, folks.

In the end, AHHHHHHHHHHH! I just… I just can’t do this any longer, son. Ultimately, I don’t know who I’m going to root for, but it can’t be the Knicks, man. By and by, James Dolan doesn’t care about us, fam. At the end of the day, as long as people show up to Madison Square Garden, he isn’t concerned with the team’s pedigree, bruh. All I can say is, I’m finally bowing out, people. No mas. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck Did They Do To Jussie Smollett?!

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I’m blown away right now, man. Like, what year are we in, fam? Seriously, what fucking year is it, bruh? Keeping it a buck, I don’t want to hear anything about progress, people. Shit, every time we think we’re moving ahead as a country, some fuckery occurs to bring us all back down. All I know is, the attack on Jussie Smollett was absolutely unconscionable. Frankly, I’m having a hard time putting my frustration into words, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Smollett was attacked in Chicago on Tuesday morning. According to the story, while walking out of a Subway restaurant at 2 AM, two dudes rolled up on him and said “aren’t you that faggot Empire nigger?” From there, the two ski-masked men hit Smollett in the face, injured his rib, put a rope around his neck and poured an “unknown chemical substance” on him. After all of that, the men allegedly yelled “this is MAGA country” before leaving the scene.

Now, I don’t even know where to start, son. I mean, do I start at the “faggot” part? Do I start at the “nigger” part? Or, should I start at the “MAGA country” part? Regardless, this whole scenario appears to be a clusterfuck of hate, man. Not to mention, a letter threatening Smollett was sent to Fox studios just a week prior to this incident. Meaning, he may have been targeted this entire time, fam.

Listen, I need Donald Trump supporters to hear me clear. As much as the MAGA brigade likes to say they’re not racist or xenophobic, there are a number of people who commit atrocities in their name. Look, if folks want all Muslims to atone for the actions of the radical few, why does MAGA nation think they’re exempt? It’s not a coincidence that losers preach hate in their name. It’s not a coincidence that David Duke identifies with the message. All in all, I don’t want to hear any of that “I don’t agree with everything Trump says” shit. The way I see it, it’s a package deal, bruh. People can’t piecemeal what they want and ignore all of the other tomfoolery that comes with it, son.

In the end, I’m wishing the best for Jussie Smollett. Ultimately, I hope they catch the motherfuckers who did this bullshit to him, man. By and by, it’s frightening that crimes like this are still occurring in 2019. At the end of the day, it’s dangerous for so many different groups of people, fam. *Sigh* This is America. Don’t catch you slipping up. LC out.
