Conversations With Randi B.: Can Men & Women Be Friends?

What’s good, brethren? Randi B. and I did another episode of Conversations with Randi B. On this one, we chop it up about whether or not men and women can actually be friends. So, what else needs to be said, son? Check out the podcast below, fam. Yessir! LC out.

I Bangs With This 070 Shake Album

So, despite rarely keeping my promise, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. Basically, I just want to give a quick shout-out to 070 Shake for this Modus Vivendi album, son. Real talk, her project has been on repeat since it dropped last week, man. The fact is, her tone is dope, her lyrics are dope and the beats are ridiculous. With that being said, I’d advise anyone reading this to give the album a listen, fam.

Ok, before I get to my favorite songs, I just want to give a public service announcement to all of the music press out there. Listen, 070 Shake is not a rapper, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I’m thoroughly confused as to why she’s categorized as Hip-Hop, son. Look, I don’t care about her aesthetic and I don’t care about who she associates with. The way I see it, Modus Vivendi is a Pop album, man. Now, does her sound have elements of Hip-Hop in it? Of course it does. Then again, what songs don’t these days? All I know is, this is the same feeling I had/have about Post Malone, fam. Frankly, both of these artists are singers and that’s perfectly fine. I dig them for what they actually do, brethren.

In the end, let’s just get to the music, son. By and by, below are a couple of the songs that I’m vibing to the most, man. At the end of the day, albums like this get me HYPED, fam. So, big-ups to Shake, Dave Hamelin, Sean Solymar, Mike Dean and the rest of the team for making a dope ass project, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Conversations With Randi B.: Tyler Perry

So, I know what some people may be thinking, son: two posts in one day? What’s really good, LC? Well, the truth is, this may be a thing going forward. Basically, anytime I sit-in on Randi B.‘s podcast, I’m going to write a quick post about it. As of right now, it’s looking she’s going to drop that new fuego on Friday‘s. With that being said, I might have to double up on my posts during those days. Either way, good content is good content, man.

Anyway, on the latest episode, Randi and I chop it up about all things Tyler Perry (in addition to other topics). So, what else needs to be said, fam? Enjoy, share and comment! That is all. LC out.

Thanks For The Rings, Eli Manning

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I have a love-hate relationship with Eli Manning, man. I mean, there was literally NO middle ground with him, fam. Like, he was either a terrible quarterback or a Super Bowl champion, bruh. Either way, I greatly appreciate everything he’s done for my New York Giants, brethren. With all of that being said, the man can finally rest.

Ok, for those who missed it, after 16 seasons in the NFL, Manning has decided to retire. Now, as a fan, it’s been a rollercoaster ride with Manning as our quarterback, son. Real talk, we never knew which version of him we would get from season to season. Shit, one year, he might throw damn near as many interceptions as touchdowns. The next year, he might beat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots for the title. All I know is, Manning was as likely to give me a heart attack as he was to give me joy, man. But, I wouldn’t trade those two rings for less panic, fam.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, I want to wish Eli Manning a peaceful retirement. By and by, he may have been inconsistent at times, but he also reached the mountaintop more than once. At the end of the day, he’s a fucking winner, son. All I can say is, his accomplishments can never be taken away from him, man. That is all. LC out.

This Delonte West Sh*t Is Sad

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I don’t even know how to begin this post, man. The truth is, this Delonte West situation is sad as fuck, fam. I mean, just look at the dude, bruh! Look, that man is the same man who played nine seasons in the NBA. However, based on his current appearance, West is having a REALLY tough fucking time, people. All I can say is, I truly hope he gets some help as soon as humanly possible, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, Delonte West is back in the news for all of the wrong reasons. Now, a video has been circulating around the internet of an alleged altercation between West and some angry guy in Washington, D.C. Well, in reality, it’s less of an altercation and more of a clip of him getting his ass beat. Shit, the video that I saw shows him on the ground, in the middle of a highway, getting stomped on by this unidentified man. From there, another clips shows him on the side of the road, ranting about a guy pulling a gun on him, with his face covered in blood. That’s where the above picture comes from.

All I know is, this entire situation is fucked up, son. Real talk, this latest debacle just adds to the long list of shit that West has been involved in since his NBA days. Hell, going back to 2009, I remember when he got pulled over on his motorcycle, carrying enough guns to rival Rambo. I remember when he was begging for change in Maryland. I remember when he was walking around and looking nuts in Texas. Keeping it a buck, it just seems like it’s one thing after another, man.

Now, it’s no secret that West has mental issues, fam. Like, a simple Google search would show that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a long time ago. However, it’s clear that he’s not getting ANY type of assistance, bruh. In addition, I have no proof that he’s on drugs, but c’mon son, I don’t see how that isn’t the case as well, son. All in all, I just wish that someone would come to his rescue, man.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, fam. Ultimately, it’s insane to see what’s happening to this man. By and by, it doesn’t seem that long ago that he was getting buckets in the league. Now, he’s more known for the shenanigans than for hooping, bruh. At the end of the day, I hope that his friends and family will find some way to get through to him. Sadly, at this rate, there’s only one way for this story to end. Needless to say, nobody wants that, son. That is all. LC out.

Donald Cerrone Can’t Win The Big Fight

So, before I even begin, let me say that I’m a big Donald Cerrone fan. Now, I feel compelled to say that because the rest of this post is going to be rough on him, son. In any case, I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t objective, man. With that being said, it’s time to call a spade a spade, fam. The fact of the matter is, Cerrone just can’t seem to win the big fight, bruh.

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, Cerrone just fought Conor McGregor at UFC 246. Now, as I stated in a previous post, this was a huge fight, son. I mean, we have the return of McGregor and a big payday for Cerrone, the guy who holds most of the UFC‘s records. Anyway, I expected McGregor to win, but not like this, man. Like, Cerrone got absolutely ANNIHILATED, fam. For God‘s sake, the fight was over before it even started, bruh.

Look, we’re talking about 40 seconds, son. Real talk, 40 seconds is all it took for McGregor to beat the brakes off of Cerrone, man. Shit, after missing his opening haymaker, McGregor hit Cerrone with four-straight shoulder strikes to the face, then a head-kick and ended with punches on the ground. Listen, losing always sucks, but it’s gotta be especially trash to lose like this, fam. Hell, Cerrone went through an entire training camp, just to get finished before the one-minute mark. All I know is, that’s fucking tough, bruh.

But, as much as this hurts to say, I wasn’t really surprised, son. The fact is, Cerrone has never performed well in these big moments. Listen, during his career, Cerrone has gotten four chances at a world title (one with the UFC and three with the WEC). Frankly, he’s come up short every time, man. On the real, there are some fights were Cerrone looked fucking invincible. However, when the stakes reach their highest point, he doesn’t seem to perform the way I believe he’s able to. Fast forward to now and the same shit happened with McGregor. Yes, this wasn’t a title fight, but it was without question the biggest match of his career. Sadly, he couldn’t get it done, fam.

In the end, I don’t want this to seem like I’m just shitting on Cerrone, bruh. Ultimately, I really am a fan of his, son. By and by, I just wish his skills translated when the lights are the brightest, man. Then again, I’ll be right back when he fights again, fam. At the end of the day, I just hoped this would’ve been a better bout, bruh. That is all. LC out.

I’m Not Hyped To Hear Eminem’s Album

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m a diehard Eminem fan who hasn’t liked much of his music since the early 2000s. Now, that might not make sense to the ordinary person, but I was legit Stan when he dropped his first four albums (pun intended). In any case, from Encore onward, I just haven’t fucked with much of his material, man. With that being said, I’m not particularly hyped to listen to his surprise album, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Marshall Mathers is back in the game, bruh. Now, unbeknownst to the public, Em was working on a new album. Anyway, Music to Be Murdered By just touched the streets this morning. All I can say is, I don’t know what to expect from these tracks, son. At this point, Em has more bad albums than good albums, man. I mean, Infinite, The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show will ALWAYS be untouchable, fam. However, most of his albums after that have been hit-or-miss, people. Like, he still has his moments, especially on Kamikaze, but for the most part, the records are bad, brethren.

Now, to be clear, Eminem’s rapping prowess should never be called into question. Keeping it a buck, his punchlines may be outdated sometimes, but his technical ability to rhyme words is unmatched, son. But, there’s more to music than just bars, man. In his prime, Em made really enjoyable, and very problematic, hits. These days, not so much, fam. The way I see it, all of his tracks end up being an exercise in how well he can write lyrics. That, coupled with overused subject matter, makes for a boring listen, bruh. So, I’m basically expecting the same from this new album, folks.

In the end, I’ll still give the album a chance, son. Ultimately, I’m not one to just judge music without a real reference point. By and by, maybe he’ll surprise me and put out some fire, man. Then again, I’m not getting my hopes up, fam. At the end of the day, only time will tell, bruh. All in all, I’ll get back to everyone about it. That is all. LC out.
