My Album Is On Apple Music, Spotify & Tidal!

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m having a hard time keeping my composure right now, man. I mean, MY ALBUM IS OUT, FAM! That’s right, my album, The Charlemagne Renaissance, is officially on all streaming services. Meaning, if anybody goes to Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, etc., my album is ready to go, bruh. With that being said, I hope everyone takes a listen and gives me some feedback, folks.

Now, for those who remember, I was putting out a lot of music in 2017. Thanks to New Music Fridays, I was dropping a new song every two weeks. Anyway, all of the songs were just floating around SoundCloud. So, I decided to properly release them as an album, son. From there, Jevon Roché gave me some super dope artwork and Rick Torres mastered the project. Needless to say, I’m indebted to the both of them, man. Also, my guy Zeyi came through with the fire verse and blessed a song. All in all, I’m beyond hyped, fam!

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, I just hope that people will take the time to listen, son. By and by, I put a lot of work into this album and I hope folks enjoy it, man. In any case, to whoever is reading this, let me know what the best tracks on the project are. I’m always interested in hearing people’s opinions. Thank you! That is all. LC out.

Tristan Thompson Is A Jedi-Level Savage

So, when it comes to infidelity, I believe there are two kinds of people in the world: people who have cheated and straight cheaters. Now, the “people who have cheated” are folks who’ve made a terrible mistake and legitimately wish to make amends. A “straight cheater” is someone who can’t pass up an outside smash session. With that being said, Tristan Thompson may very well be the latter, son. All in all, if he really tapped Jordyn Woods, then he’s the Supreme Ruler of the Ain’t Shit Coalition, man.

Ok, for those who don’t know or don’t care, Thompson is back in the news, fam. Shit, for a dude who plays in the NBA, none of his stories are ever basketball-related, bruh. In any case, after previously being accused of cheating on Khloe Kardashian, it appears that ol’ buddy has done it again, son. However, the stakes are much higher this time, man. So, according to the rumors, Thompson allegedly put the full-court press on Woods’ ass. Now, this is notable because Woods is (was?) Kylie Jenner’s best friend. Essentially, Thompson might’ve smashed the ultimate homie, folks. Needless to say, this ain’t a good look for him, brethren.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I have all of the details, son. I mean, I wasn’t about to do a ton of research on this subject, man. All I know is, if a guy is trying to work his way out of the doghouse, banging his lady’s sister’s homegirl is not the wave, fam. For God’s sake, just admire her ass is silence, bruh! Hell, if he was a real goon, he could’ve hit Khloe with the following Kanye West lyrics: “I mean you, her and me, maybe, baby, baby, you know I was just kidding, unless you gon’ do it.” Like, the three-three could’ve worked, people!

In the end, who knows, son? Ultimately, all of this could just be publicity for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. By and by, I wouldn’t put any of the tomfoolery past them, man. At the end of the day, Thompson should’ve just kept it tight, fam. Then again, looking at Woods, I can see why he did it, bruh. Side note, don’t tell my wife that I said that, brethren. Thanks! LC out.

Stop Deflecting Away From Jussie Smollett’s Nonsense

So, I’m going to try and keep this short today, son. Basically, I’m tired of the bullshit, man. On the real, anytime a Black person is caught doing some foul shit, people bring up White folks who’ve gotten away with similar foul shit. All I know is, it brings me back to a question I’ve asked before: do Black people want to be right or do we want to get away with the same crimes as White people? The point is, Jussie Smollett was deadass wrong, fam. Frankly, any attempt to defend him is severely misguided.

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, Smollett has officially been arrested and charged with filing a false police report. Now, according to the law, this offense is a Class 4 Felony, which could result in 1-3 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. Anyway, I think it’s safe to say that Smollett is in a world of shit right now, bruh. Moving on, I don’t like the narrative that’s spreading through social media, son. Listen, regardless of other offenders, Smollett still did something incredibly wrong, man. The fact is, he needs to pay for his nonsense, fam.

Listen, I’m seeing a lot of people bring up White folks who’ve falsely called the cops on Black people. Ok, yes, that’s another issue that desperately needs to be addressed, bruh. The way I see it, all of the Petty Patty’s and Nosy Nancy’s need to be prosecuted for involving in the law in unnecessary situations. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Smollett needs to be held accountable for his actions. I mean, HE FAKED A COTDAMN HATE CRIME, SON! Like, how else could I possibly phrase that? The truth is, he doesn’t deserve our damn sympathy, man. All in all, more Black people should be mad at him, fam. Shit, folks were ready to ride for him and he made us all look like idiots, brethren.

In the end, I really want people to stop changing the story, son. Ultimately, two things can be true at once, man. By and by, Smollett should be charged for his tomfoolery AND White people should be charged for fraudulently calling the police. At the end of the day, Smollett shouldn’t be exempt from justice, fam. In addition, he needs to be ridiculed for such a botched plan, bruh. Hell, this entire saga unraveled faster than a Payless shoe, people. *Sigh* I don’t know what else to say here. LC out.

P.S. Miss me with any of that “mental health” shit, son. Keeping it a buck, I can already see that narrative gaining traction, man. All I can say is, I rebuke all of that, fam. In my eyes, Smollett is nothing more than a fucking clown, bruh. That is all.

What The F*ck, Jussie?!

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m mad at myself, man. I’m mad that I fell for the gaffle, fam. I’m mad that it didn’t even cross my mind that an idiot could fabricate a story like this. All in all, fuck Jussie Smollett, bruh. Keeping it a buck, if he really did stage a hate crime, which it seems like he did, we need to throw his ass into the fucking abyss, people. The way I see it, an action like this is unforgivable, folks. Real talk, this type of tomfoolery could have lasting and damaging implications.

Ok, for those who haven’t been paying attention, Chicago police have poked a ton of holes in Smollett’s story, son. Now, I started to believe something was up when homie was onstage saying he was the “gay Tupac.” Fam, what part of the game is that? I mean, is this how far someone would go for “clout,” man? For God’s sake, the two alleged attackers ended up being Nigerian brothers who knew Smollett. Shit, one of them appeared as an extra on Empire and another one is apparently Smollett’s trainer. Frankly, I don’t know who is who, bruh.

To make matters worse, the brothers have seemingly admitted that Smollett paid them to “attack” him. According to new reports, when the cops raided the brothers’ crib, they found ropes, masks and bleach. Like, I don’t even know what to say here, son. In all honesty, Smollett’s alleged actions are EXTREMELY dangerous, man. Hell, we legitimately live in a country where Black and gay people are harmed for being Black, gay or both. So, why the FUCK would Smollett play games with a narrative like this? All I know is, he’s made it INCREDIBLY difficult for real victims to get justice, fam. Listen, because of his seemingly false “this is MAGA country” claims, Fox News and the right-wing are already running with this, bruh. Smollett has given them all the ammo they need to dismiss REAL hatred and bigotry.

In the end, I’ll say it again, son. Fuck Jussie Smollett, man! Ultimately, I have to use the word “allegedly” for this entire post. However, shit ain’t looking good for him, fam. By and by, if it’s truly confirmed that he staged this whole incident, I hope he never works again, bruh. At the end of the day, fuck his music, fuck his acting and fuck any other endeavor of his, brethren. As a matter of fact, he needs to go to jail for some nonsense like this, folks. All I can say is, it takes a foul individual to be this disgusting, people. *Sigh* LC out.

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.
