Andrew Cuomo Is Out Here Wilin’

So, there’s no way to cut it or slice it, son. Andrew Cuomo, governor of my state (New York), is out here wilin’, man. I mean, name it and he’s probably been accused of it, fam. At this point, I’m sure that he’s wishing it was still the early days of the pandemic, when the public “liked” him. Shit, in less than a year, Cuomo has gone from an elected official “battling” the Coronavirus to a creep who doesn’t give a shit about old people. All I can say is, life comes at you fast, bruh.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Cuomo is in all types of shit, son. Now, let’s start with the debacle in the nursing homes. Apparently, Cuomo and his administration has been lying about how many people have died from COVID-19 in nursing homes around the state. Basically, a bunch of elderly people were perishing from the virus and they neglected to tell anyone. In any case, the investigation began when Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo’s aide, let the truth slip. All in all, that’s fucking reprehensible, man. Hell, even if I didn’t have a grandmother in a nursing home, I would’ve still be mortified, man. Frankly, that’s no way to treat anyone, let alone the defenseless, fam.

Moving on, let’s talk about Cuomo’s creepiness around women. Now, according to Lindsey Boylan, Charlotte Bennett and Anna Ruch, Cuomo has a history of unwanted advances and general touchy-feely-ness. Furthermore, it’s been stated by numerous people that he’s created a work atmosphere that thrives on “bullying” and all sorts of sexual harassment. With all of that being said, I believe all of it, bruh. Why? Not only because of the testimonies of these women, but by Cuomo’s own words. Listen, anytime someone says shit like “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation,” they did that shit, son. Real talk, all his statement did was try to downplay the creepo shit that he was doing in his office. The way I see it, we don’t believe you, you need more people.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. Ultimately, it’s time for Cuomo to go. By and by, he can’t continue to abuse his position and think that there won’t be any repercussions, fam. At the end of the day, I really think that he thought he could skate because of how he was handling the Coronavirus publicly. Now, I say “publicly” because we all know the truth now, bruh. When it’s all said and done, he was letting elderly people die while fondling his staff. Yeah, adios, Cuomo. Let’s see if Chris Cuomo will keep it a buck about that. That is all. LC out.

I Need That Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak Album Now!

So, what else is there to say, son? Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak are dropping an album, man. Like, together. Like, as a group, fam. All I can say is, I’m having a hard time curbing my excitement, bruh. The funny thing is, I was just wondering where the hell Mars has been. I mean, it’s been 5 years since his last album. On the other hand, I was impatiently waiting for .Paak to drop his latest NxWorries album with Knxwledge. In any case, I’ll GLADLY take this collaborative project when it drops, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, both Mars and .Paak hit up social media to tell us that they’re releasing a joint album. Now, they’ve formed a duo called Silk Sonic and the plan is to put out a project called An Evening with Silk Sonic. In addition, they apparently have the legendary Bootsy Collins along for the ride as a special guest host. Furthermore, their debut single is supposed to be dropping this Friday (March 5th). With all of that being said, and judging by the artists involved, I can only assume that this album is going to be funky as shit, son. All in all, I can’t wait, fam. I can’t fucking wait!

In the end, that’s all there is to it, man. Ultimately, two of my favorite artists have combined powers and I need this shit in my phone ASAP. By and by, since the pandemic started, music has been a little hit-or-miss for me. At the end of the day, I’m hyped to hear what Mars and .Paak have in the tuck, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Prayers Up For Tiger Woods

Damn, son. After all of these years, Tiger Woods, the greatest golfer ever, still can’t catch a break, man. Now, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I know all of the details surrounding his car accident. All I can say is, I see this situation from two different angles. On one hand, he’s incredibly lucky to be alive. On the other hand, his injuries are bad, fam. Like, possibly career-ending. Like, possibly life-altering, bruh. At this point, all we can do is hope for the best.

Ok, for those who missed it, Woods was involved in a terrible crash on Tuesday. While driving near Los Angeles, Woods’ car went over a median, hit a curb and then hit a tree before landing on the side of a road. Now, when help arrived, Woods was coherent and able to talk, but he was unable to move. This is due to the compound fractures in both of his legs. Meaning, his bones were poking through the skin. All in all, it was a messed up scene, son.

Now, speaking as a man who had a compound fracture in his left leg, I know how bad this is, man. Yeah, I’m able to walk around and still participate in various sports, but I’ve never been 100% since my incident. The crazy part is, I was 15 years old when this happened and I basically healed like Wolverine. I can only imagine trying to come back from such grave injuries at 45 years old. Especially someone like Woods who’s had a LITANY of previous injuries and surgeries. The fact is, it was hard enough getting him back in the game as it is. With that being said, this has the potential to be the end of his athletic journey, fam.

In the end, I’m just wishing Tiger Woods the best, bruh. Ultimately, I just hope that he wasn’t doing anything wild at the time of the crash. By and by, prayers up for him and his family. At the end of the day, I have my fingers crossed that he’s able to have his normal life back in the aftermath. That is all. LC out.

‘Fled Cruz’ Is Hilarious

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, the internet never ceases to be funny, man. I mean, no matter the situation, the online community will find a way to make shit hilarious. With that being said, the name “Fled Cruz” is a special brand of comical. Like, on what planet did Ted Cruz think it was cool to ditch Texas during the middle of a crisis? Shit, after his role in fanning the flames of the U.S. Capitol riot, one would think that Cruz would try to be as helpful as possible. But, nope, brethren. Instead, Cruz tried to bounce with his family and really thought that people wouldn’t notice. All in all, he’s a certified clown, fam.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Texas is a shit-show right now. Thanks to climate change, the state has been battered with unprecedented amounts of snow and ice. Because of this, millions of people are residing in frozen houses that are without power. To clarify, the motherfucking Texas power grid just gave up, bruh. Furthermore, because of these extraordinary times, resources such as food and water are becoming an issue for residents. So, during a moment like this, what should the community expect from its elected officials? They should be finding ways to rectify the power issues and get supplies to the people, right? Well, that’s not what Ted Cruz did. In fact, to get away from the problems of his fellow Texans, Cruz hopped on a plane with his family to Cancún, Mexico. *Sigh* He’s such a great Senator, son.

Now, here’s the thing. The fact is, Cruz can’t pretend like this was some planned trip. Based on leaked text messages, his wife, Heidi Cruz, put this vacation in motion because their “house is FREEZING.” Well, welcome to the club, Heidi. Frankly, all of her father’s constituents are in the same boat and a lot of them don’t have the ability to flee the scene. Keeping it a buck, how dense can one man be, fam? Like, did he really think this was a good idea? To abandon the people who voted for him? For God‘s sake, Ted Cruz continually shows us that he’s of low character. Hell, I guess promoting a riot wasn’t bad enough. Now he wants to take the easy way out while his people suffer. Bravo, fool.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, son. Ultimately, I’m not surprised by Cruz’ ain’t-shit-ness. By and by, these politicians just continue to show us that they don’t give a fuck about the people. At the end of the day, we get what we vote for. That is all. LC out.

The Brilliance Of Daniel Kaluuya & Lakeith Stanfield

Disclaimer: Spoooooilers!

So, like I always say, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. The fact of the matter is, Judas and the Black Messiah is a great fucking movie, son. All I know is, Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield took turns putting on acting clinics in this shit. Real talk, after watching the film, my wife and I debated who’s the real focus of the plot. I mean, it’s hard to look away from Fred Hampton, but William O’Neal‘s story is equally as compelling, man. In any case, I just want to give credit where credit is due, fam. Shaka King did the damn thing with this film, bruh.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Judas and the Black Messiah dropped last week on HBO Max and in select theaters. The film chronicles O’Neal’s troubles with the law and how the FBI, namely Roy Mitchell, use him to infiltrate and destabilize Hampton and the Chicago faction of the Black Panther Party. Thanks to O’Neal’s informant-ass ratting, the Bureau is able to not only lock Hampton up over some bullshit, but eventually plan his execution. All in all, O’Neal leaves a lot of devastation in his wake.

Now, I could go on and on about what I love about the film, but I’ll just leave everyone with three takeaways (two about the film and one about the real story). First, I’m amazed by Kaluuya’s ability to not only embody Hampton’s personality, but also his vocal inflections. Son, it’s absolutely spooky that he can be that accurate. Frankly, it’s always a good time when I forget the actor and become fully-immersed in the character. Second, Stanfield does a fantastic job of leaving me confused. On the real, I can’t reconcile whether O’Neal really believes in the work that he’s doing or if he’s just playing the snitch for survival. All I can say is, Stanfield does an incredible job of making O’Neal seem ambiguous. Regardless, fuck William O’Neal.

Moving on, my third point relates to the actual story. Keeping it a buck, the film just highlights something that I’ve always felt: J. Edgar Hoover fucking won, man. Thanks to COINTELPRO, he was able to destabilize every Black movement in America. From Hampton to Martin Luther King Jr. to Malcolm X to Huey Newton, Bobby Seale and Eldridge Cleaver, Hoover was able to successfully destroy all of these movements from the inside. His fear of a “Black messiah” inspired him to decimate any group that strived for Black upliftment. The way I see it, the FBI can try to rebrand all they want, but their story is rooted in the oppression of Black people. That’s just a fucking fact, fam.

In the end, everybody should go watch the movie, bruh. Ultimately, it’s masterfully done and the real tale is incredibly infuriating. By and by, Hampton was right, son. At the end of the day, they can murder a revolutionary, but they can’t murder revolution. Always remembers that. That is all. LC out.
