A ‘Space Force,’ Son?

Man, what the fuck is going on in America? On the real, I’m amazed that Donald Trump can still amaze me with some of the shit that comes out of his mouth, son. Like, a “Space Force,” fam? I mean, out of ALL of the things happening in our country at the moment, is THIS where we need to dedicate our time and taxpayer dollars? Shit, are we in imminent danger of Star Wars and Star Trek coming to life? Bruh, can Trump spare me the fuckity-fuck shit?

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is still out here being Trump, son. Now, on Monday, he made an out-of-the-blue announcement, man. Apparently, he wants the Department of Defense and the Pentagon to put together a “Space Force.” Essentially, this new initiative would constitute the sixth branch of the Armed Forces. Side note, this shit ain’t about the military at all, fam. Listen, right after telling a bunch of generals to start putting plans together, he stated that wealthy individuals who “like rockets” would be able to launch into space. Well, for a fee, of course. Hell, I guess they’re really trying to create those condos on Mars, bruh.

Look, this is NOT the time for the shenanigans, son. Right now, there are COUNTLESS issues that need our attention, man. For example, what about those separated kids at the southern border, fam? Real talk, one measly executive order doesn’t reunite families that have already been ripped apart. Also, what about the pipes in Flint, Michigan? Last time I checked, the residents were still dealing with filthy water, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I could go on and on, folks. Frankly, the United States has MORE than enough on our plate. We don’t need the extra shit, people.

In the end, I’m not falling for the gaffle, son. Ultimately, anytime shit starts to go haywire in the Trump administration, he comes with the MEAN misdirect, man. At the end of the day, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m well-versed in the intricacies of “defending” space. But, I do know that there are WAY more important and immediate issues that need to be fixed in our country. So, knock it the fuck off, Trump! That is all. LC out.

P.S. If this “Space Force” actually happens, will a brotha get a lightsaber or a phaser? Asking for a friend. Good day.

Children Aren’t Negotiation Tools, Donald Trump

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I haven’t written about the heinous practices at the southern border because I haven’t been able to find the right words to express my disgust. Like, I don’t know how a “fair and just” nation could EVER think that separating innocent children from their parents is an acceptable policy. All I know is, I’m sick of Donald Trump, I’m sick of the GOP and I’m sick of all of the people who support this inhumane agenda.

Now, at this point, EVERYONE should’ve heard about what’s happening at the southern border, son. Basically, kids are being ripped away from their parents for trying to get into this country. Ok, yes, there absolutely should be checks and balances for who’s allowed to come into the United States. However, what part of the game is decimating families for the sake of immigration? Look, America has been a nation for almost 250 years. Clearly, we’ve used MUCH better ways to determine an immigrant’s status, man.

Look, I’m not falling for any of the smoke screens, fam. On the real, I hope NO ONE believes the idea that the Democrats enforced this law. First, Trump himself tried to use the separation practice as a negotiation tool. Shit, he literally said that he’d change the law if the Dems agreed to fund his border wall. Next, Jeff Sessions flatly told Laura Ingraham on Fox News that the policy was being used as a “deterrent.” Meaning, they’re threatening immigrants with losing their children if they come across the border.

To make matters worse, crazy ass Stephen Miller is a STRONG proponent of the policy and is alleged to be the psycho who created it. Finally, when I watch Ann Coulter call the crying babies “child actors” and hear Corey Lewandowski say “womp womp” to a video of a girl with Down Syndrome, I know that I’m witnessing pure evil, bruh. So, with all of that being said, miss me with the “this is the Democrats fault” shit. Keeping it a buck, this is EXACTLY the type of devastation that the Republicans wanted, son.

In the end, America continues to show the world just how garbage we are, man. Ultimately, I don’t know how anyone can take pride in this nation, fam. Ok, wait, that’s not true, bruh. By and by, the ONLY people who take pride in this country are the ones who aren’t affected by any of its despicable policies. At the end of the day, the U.S. continues to prove that it isn’t built for anyone with pigmented skin. That is all. LC out.

P.S. If anyone thinks I’m being overly dramatic, just look up “tender age shelters” in Google. *Sigh* This is America, son. Word to Childish Gambino.

This XXXTentacion Sh*t Is Wild!

Look, let me keep it a buck, son. I’d be a hypocrite if I wrote an entire post singing XXXTentacion‘s praises, man. I mean, on this very blog, I’ve been critical of his alleged criminal behavior. However, with all of that being said, no one deserves to die the way he did, fam. Shit, XXX’s death is yet another example of why this hood shit is for the fucking birds, bruh. All in all, this type of violence needs to be COMPLETELY eradicated, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, XXX was killed yesterday in Miami, Florida. Apparently, he was leaving a motorcycle dealership when two men ran up on his car. Now, the rumor is these dudes were trying to rob him. Further than that, the word is the shooters made off with his Louis Vuitton bag. So, let me get this straight, son. A fucking LV bag is worth a man’s life? A 20-year-old dude? Like, think about that, man. XXX didn’t even make it to drinking age, fam. *Sigh* Dying over material possessions is the most senseless shit in the world, bruh.

Listen, I’m not going to pretend like I’m well-versed in XXX’s music. Shit, I was off that wave when I heard about his alleged crimes against women. But, I can’t front like his death didn’t throw me for a loop, son. Look, for all of his faults, he was still young as hell, man. Shit, he was young enough to make amends for his actions and improve as a human being. However, he no longer has that opportunity, fam. And for what, a bag? Money? Jewelry? Hell, NONE of that shit is worth a life, bruh. This “crabs in a barrel” mentality is among the most treacherous pitfalls in Black and Brown communities.

In the end, the lost of life is always sad, son. Ultimately, XXX didn’t deserve to die over something so petty, man. By and by, I hope all of these new artists learn from this, fam. At the end of the day, life can be short and there’s no time to waste it over frivolous behavior. In addition, there’s no room in our community for such levels of jealousy and violence. All of the bullshit has to stop, bruh. That is all. LC out.

P.S. All of these videos of folks dying need to stop being circulated, son. Good fucking Lord, let’s have some respect for people’s lives, man! At some point, idiots on social media need to quit doing shit for likes and comments, fam. All I know is, a person’s death should NEVER be used for attention-seeking and clout-chasing. Good day.

Nas vs. Jay-Z & Beyoncé

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m absolutely trolling with the title of this post, man. On the real, I have no intention of pitting Nas against Jay-Z and Beyoncé, fam. Shit, even though I believe The Carters are being a liiiiiittle bit petty with their release date, I have no evidence to back that up, bruh. With that being said, I’d much rather take this time to talk about the music on Nasir and Everything Is Love. All in all, let’s just get to the shits, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, it seems like everybody dropped a damn album on Friday, son. Side note, a huge shout-out to Jay Rock, man. Real talk, his Redemption album is fucking DOPE, fam! Everyone should really take a listen. In any case, let’s get back to Nas, Hov & Bey, bruh. To begin, let’s start with Nasir, the new Kanye West-produced Nas album. So, since CoonYe, excuse me, Kanye is behind the boards, it’s probably best to start with the production, people. Now, it’s common knowledge that I’m not feeling Kanye’s whole vibe right now. However, that fool still knows how to make a damn beat, brethren.

Keeping it a buck, Kanye devised the perfect plan for a Nas album: don’t let Nas pick any of the beats and don’t let Nas write any of the hooks. Look, as legendary of emcee that Nas is, he’s TERRIBLE at picking instrumentals, son. Hell, he even uses the song “Simple Things” to address that fact on the album, man. Listen, he tries to spin it in some cool way like “never sold a record for the beat, it’s my verses they purchase,” but come on, fam. He knows damn well his beat selection game is tri-di-dash, bruh. In addition, with The-Dream, 070 Shake and Kanye handling hook duties, Nas can just focus on rapping. Frankly, I don’t know why other producers haven’t taken this approach before.

Anyway, as weird as it is for me to say this, I must be frank, son. *Sigh* Nas himself is my problem with this album, man. Keeping it a buck, this isn’t the best version of Nasir, no pun intended. Listen, Nas will always be able to put words together, fam. Like, that’s his gift in life, bruh. But, I have two issues with his rhyming on this album. First, he raps offbeat… a lot. Shit, just listen to the first song where he talks about the founder of Fox News being Black. It’s offbeat as a muhfucka, folks! Also, his overall bars aren’t as descriptive as I would like them to be. Look, this is the man who wrote “I Gave You Power,” people. He can do better than “Black kids get hit with like five.” That’s all I’m saying, brethren.

Now, that’s all I have to say for Nas, son. Listen, I see people going crazy over the album, but I still think it could’ve been better, man. In addition, we can’t ignore Ye’s fuckery and Kelis‘s allegations against Nas. All I can say is, I don’t blame certain individuals for not fucking with the album, fam. Shit, I’m at the point where I don’t even know who to support anymore, bruh. I swear, all of our heroes may be trash, folks. *Sigh* Being a fan is damn near impossible these days, people. Well, that’s all I’m going to say about that.

Moving on, let’s talk about Jay and Bey’s surprise album, son. Now, to be fair, I haven’t given this album enough spins to have a definitive feeling about it. Ok, yeah, I’ve listened to it about five times, but that’s still not enough time to understand all of the nuance and intricacies, man. In any case, from my first impressions, I must say that the production is immaculate, fam. Look, when I say “immaculate,” I’m purely talking about sonic quality, bruh. On the real, The Carters would NEVER put out a record that isn’t well-produced, people. Shit, they have too much money and too much access for that, folks.

In any case, from a subject matter standpoint, the album ain’t really about nothing. I mean, they already address their marital issues on both Lemonade and 4:44, son. Frankly, unless they start naming Hov’s side pieces, they can’t really shed too much more light on their union. So, where does that leave us? With a lot of stunting in the lyrics, man. Now, stunting is always a good time, so the album has jams to rock out to. But, it’s not like the album is some life-changing work that I need to come running back to. Listen, could I feel differently in a couple of weeks? Maybe. But, as of right now, the album is just cool, fam. Nothing more, nothing less.

In the end, June has been active as fuck with the music, son. Ultimately, there’s gotta be something for everyone, man. All I know is, I’m still on this Daytona album by Pusha T, fam. At the end of the day, who doesn’t want to hear about “flipping a bird” while zoning out at work? That is all. LC out.

In Preparation For Nas’s Album…

So, I’m going to keep this SUPER brief, son. I mean, I’ve already written a post about the Kanye West-produced Nas album that’s supposed to drop on Friday, man. With that being said, I’d much rather just vibe out to some of my favorite Nas songs, fam. On the real, those who know me know that Nas is one of my favorite rappers. Now, my ADHD is waaaaay too strong for me to pick a definitive favorite rapper. But, if someone held a gun to my head, I might have to pick Nasir Jones, bruh. Anyway, in preparation for his upcoming album, here are some of my favorite Nas songs. Good day. LC out.

No One Goes To IHOP For Burgers

So, I’m going to keep this post brief today, son. Long story short, IHOP needs to chill the fuck out, man. I mean, no one is going to the International House of Pancakes for burgers, fam. On the real, I don’t care how fire their new lunch and dinner options may be, bruh. All I know is, when I pull up to IHOb, excuse me, IHOP, they better have them buttermilk pancakes on deck, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, IHOP just tried to do some quick rebranding, son. Now, in a statement released earlier this week, the company said they were changing their name to IHOb. Apparently, instead of being the House of Pancakes, they want to be known as the House of Burgers. In any case, they weren’t really serious about changing their name, man. In fact, the goal of this little experiment was to bring attention to some of their new menu items. For instance, I see there’s going to be some shit called the Big Brunch Burger with bacon, a fried egg and hash browns on top.

Listen, I’ve been going to IHOP for a long time, fam. All in all, they’ve been trying to convince us about their non-breakfast items for a minute, bruh. With that being said, let me send IHOP a message: we’re only here for the pancakes, folks! Real talk, if the meal isn’t an 80-stack of pancakes or an oversized omelette, then I don’t want that shit, brethren. Keeping it a buck, what do I look like going to a pancake house for a burger? Why would I trust IHOP to handle my burger fix when places like Shake Shack and Five Guys exist, son? At this point, IHOP needs to know where its bread is buttered, man. All pun intended.

In the end, wake me up when IHOP comes to its senses, fam. Ultimately, I will be back at their establishment, bruh. However, I won’t be there for the burgers, son. At the end of the day, they need to have that pancake batter on deck, man. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Shout-out to Burger King, Wendy’s, Whataburger and Checkers for being super petty, fam. Shit, who doesn’t love a good beef, bruh? Side note, does everyone see what I did there? Yeah, I’m fucking HILARIOUS, son! Good day.

Is This Anthony Joshua & Deontay Wilder Fight Happening?!

So, this fight may happen, son. Shit, the bout between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder may actually happen, man. All I know is, these dudes better not be bullshitting the fans, fam. On the real, if the news is accurate and Wilder has agreed to Joshua’s terms, then I am fucking HYPED, bruh! Hell, THIS is the fight that boxing fans want to see, people! All in all, September can’t come soon enough, folks!

Ok, for those who missed it, Wilder’s co-manager, Shelly Finkel, told ESPN that Wilder has agreed to the offer by Joshua and his manager, Eddie Hearn. Now, although the contract hasn’t been signed yet, it seems as if both sides are ready to go, son. Apparently, the fight will take place in the United Kingdom, Joshua’s home turf. In addition, they’re aiming to have the fight in September. But, that wholly depends on whether or not Gennady Golovkin gets back in the ring with Canelo Álvarez. Side note, I’m not that interested in a rematch between GGG and Canelo, man. In my eyes, GGG won the first fight and now I’m not sure if Canelo is a dirty fighter or not. So, fuck it, fam.

In any case, the table is set for Joshua and Wilder to get down, bruh. Man, we may really have an undisputed heavyweight champion before the year is over, son. Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m excited as fuck, fam! All I can say is, Joshua better not do something stupid like fight Alexander Povetkin first. Listen, nobody wants to see that shit, folks. We want Joshua versus Wilder, plain and simple.

In the end, Finkel, Al Haymon and Matchroom Boxing better get this shit finalized, son. Ultimately, the boxing world needs a showdown of this magnitude, man. By and by, the business aspect of boxing has a way of ruining great fights before they even happen. At the end of the day, let’s just hope that this isn’t one of those situations, fam. Anyway, let’s get ready to rumble! LC out.

P.S. I completely forgot to mention that the potential deal between the fighters is a two-fight deal. Meaning, the first fight would be in the UK and the rematch would be in the United States. I mean, what else needs to be said, bruh? Let’s make this shit happen! That is all.
