I’m HYPED For ‘Black Panther’!

So, I don’t want to waste any time, son. I’m fucking AMPED for this Black Panther movie, man! Listen, T’Challa has been around since the 1960s and he’s FINALLY getting his just due, fam. All I know is, I have full faith in Ryan Coogler and Chadwick Boseman, bruh. With that being said, February 16, 2018 can’t come soon enough, people. All in all, I know Black folks are going to show out when the movie comes out.

Ok, I won’t lie, son. I have a complicated history with the Black Panther character. Now, I started reading comic books in the late 1980s and I was never a big fan of T’Challa. Keep in mind, this has nothing to do with the character itself. Frankly, Marvel Comics did a terrible job of writing stories for him. Shit, despite the fact that he’s the king of Wakanda, one of the smartest men in the world AND insanely rich, Marvel never made him interesting. Real talk, they always made him a sidekick or gave him some bland ass storyline.

In any case, it seems as if the powers that be are finally trying to get the character right. Between this film and Ta-Nehisi Coates‘ comic book reboot, T’Challa is staring to get the love he deserves. On the real, as soon as Coates’ series dropped, my wife and I made sure we got our oldest son a copy. Side note, shout-out to my homie Mitch for hooking my little boy up with a first edition, son. Anyway, all I can say is, I’m happy to see the first Black superhero get his proper shine.

In the end, enough of my rambling, man. Everyone should just watch the trailer below. Ultimately, anyone who isn’t moved by this footage has no soul, fam. By and by, I shall be ready with my tickets when the movie is released, bruh. Viva la Black Panther! LC out.

Harvey Weinstein Is Out Here Wilin’

So, I’m going to just keep it a buck, son. Harvey Weinstein is a stone cold predator, man. I mean, how many more women are going to come forward about his creepiness, fam? Listen, this Weinstein situation is a prime example of an industry heavyweight using his status for evil, bruh. All I can say is, I don’t give a fuck about what he’s done for film and television, people. This man is a sexual abuser, folks, plain and simple.

Now, in case anyone has been living under a rock, a ton of Weinstein’s dastardly deeds have come to the light. Apparently, he’s been taking advantage of innocent women for eons. Based on reports from Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey in The New York Times and Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker, Weinstein has been assaulting women for decades. Also, to hide his insidious behavior, he’s paid out a ton of settlements. On the real, he’s been able to skate on all of these accusations because of his Miramax and Weinstein Company clout.

Listen, after taking a look at his list of accusers, it’s clear that he’s tried to get his paws on every notable actress in Hollywood. From Gwyneth Paltrow to Angelina Jolie to Ashley Judd, this dude has left a trail of victims in his wake. Shit, just take a listen to this tape released by The New Yorker. On it, he’s trying to convince a woman to come into his hotel room. During the conversation, he tells her not to embarrass him, not to ruin her friendship with him and even promises not to grope her like he did the prior day. Fam, this clown is basically admitting to his own perversions on tape!

Real talk, it’s disgusting that people have let him cook for so long, son. Yes, it’s difficult for victims to admit to their abuse, but what about everyone else, man? No one can tell me that other people didn’t know about the shit he was doing, fam. So, cats just let him ride because he’s a Hollywood big shot? He’s free to take advantage of anyone just because he can green light a film or a TV show? Man, people’s priorities are ALL fucked up, bruh!

Look, let’s be real for a second, son. Weinstein is basically the living embodiment of Donald Trump‘s “grab ’em by the pussy” mentality. Now, I’m not trying to turn this into a political debate, but this is exactly why that “locker room talk” excuse was never acceptable, man. Listen, rich, famous and powerful men are used to abusing their influence for their own benefit. Frankly, they don’t give a fuck about who they hurt in the process, fam. Now, as we can all see, Weinstein frequently used his position to be a predator, bruh.

In the end, Weinstein is beginning to get what he deserves. Now, being fired from his own company is a start, but criminal charges need to be filed against this man. Frankly, no one who’s committed his level of treachery should get off scot-free, son. In addition, a stint in rehab is nothing more than sanitized bullshit, man. Ultimately, criminals need to be treated like criminals. Hell, I’m sure he’d have the time of his life in a prison’s general population. By and by, I don’t want to hear anybody cape for this dude, fam. Yeah, that goes for Donna Karan too, bruh. I saw the bullshit she said. Enough is enough, folks. LC out.

Kevin Hart Is Out Here Looking CRAZY!

So, I’m going to just get straight to the point, son. Kevin Hart is taking a LOT of L’s right now, man. I mean, these groupies got him out here looking CRAZY, fam! Shit, not only did he get caught creeping on his wife, Eniko Hart, but now, the word is that the side chicks tried to extort him. Good Lord, life comes at folks FAST, bruh! In any case, they say “what goes around comes around,” so karma might be dancing on his ass right now.

Now, before I continue, let me get one thing out of the way. Keeping it a buck, I’m the LAST human being on Earth who can judge anyone for cheating. Anyway, I would divulge further, but this post ain’t about me, son! With that being said, Kevin Hart is no stranger to cheating rumors, man. Look, if anyone has ever watched his stand-ups, they’d hear him talk about what led to the breakup of his first marriage. Frankly, he made a habit out of cheating on Torrei Hart and ended up telling some jokes about it. All in all, I laughed, fam. Listen, the dude is funny, bruh!

Moving on, even his current relationship with Eniko has had its bumps and bruises. To that point, all I’ll say is, they started dating in 2009, but his divorce from Torrei wasn’t finalized until 2011. So, I’ll just let the people do the math on that one. Now, to add insult to injury, this new cheating scandal comes up. Based on the video going around, he was in some room smashing two women while his pregnant wife was at home. Sheesh, the optics on this look TERRIBLE, fam! By and by, it seems as if he admitted to everything on Instagram in an attempt to thwart the women’s extortion plot. In addition, the FBI is now looking into his case. Man, this story just keeps on getting wilder, bruh!

In the end, all of this will probably blow over, son. I mean, if his wife stays with him and he doesn’t ante up any money to these side chicks, then he doesn’t really lose here. Ultimately, the internet will have a ton of jokes, but it probably won’t hurt him, man. By and by, he only has two options from here: either stop cheating on Eniko or find some better prospects, fam. Real talk, the former is probably the better idea here. LC out.

P.S. I’m sure Torrei feels somewhat vindicated at the moment. However; she needs to stop doing interviews, son. I mean, we all know the history, ma’am. There’s really no need to sling mud right now, man. On the real, she’s doing herself a disservice by getting down in the dirt. In my eyes, doing press makes it look like she’s not over her divorce. If she’s really happy, then just be happy and let Eniko deal with Kevin’s fuckery. That is all.

Common Is About To Get That EGOT!

So, to begin, it should be understood that Common is one of the greatest rappers of all time. I mean, he has one of the most consistent discographies in Hip Hop history, son. All jokes aside, besides Universal Mind Control, he’s never put out a wack album, man. That’s right, despite what some naysayers may proclaim, even Electric Circus was quality, fam. With all of that being said, the legendary emcee is in line to pull off an amazing feat: winning an EGOT. After his recent Emmy win, he’s only a Tony Award shy of total victory, bruh.

Now, for those who are unaware, let me explain what an EGOT is. Ok, any person that competitively wins an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony has secured an EGOT. As it currently stands, 12 people have reached this achievement, including Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn and Mel Brooks. In any case, the homie Common might fuck around and add his name to that list, son. All I know is, that would be a MAJOR accomplishment for Hip Hop, man!

Moving on, let’s talk about how Common got here. In terms of Grammys, he’s won 3 awards for “Love of My Life” with Erykah Badu, “Southside” with Kanye West and “Glory” with John Legend. In terms of Oscars, “Glory” also brought home the trophy, since it was the theme for Selma. Lastly, in terms of Emmys, he just won the award for “Letter to the Free” with Bilal, since it was theme for the 13th documentary. All in all, Ava DuVernay has been a godsend for Rashid, fam. Shit, she’s been hooking him up with some prime real estate, bruh.

In the end, this post is basically a major shout-out to Common. I mean, he’s always been one of my favorite rappers and I’m hyped to see the moves he’s making. By and by, he’s showing rappers how to properly age in this game, son. Ultimately, most artists should aspire to be like him, man. LC out.

P.S. If Common is really dating Angela Rye, then this dude is on a CRAZY winning streak, fam. Like, I shouldn’t have to explain how dope Rye is, bruh. All jokes aside, if anyone is unaware of her, then Google should become their friend. That is all.

Amy Schumer Ain’t Even Funny, Though

Ok, before I begin, let me make one thing clear: women should be paid the same as men. I mean, it’s only right that women receive equal pay for equal work, son. Now, despite that fact, people are BUGGING if they think that Amy Schumer deserves the same payday as Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock. All I know is, Schumer isn’t comparable to them and it has NOTHING to do with gender, man.

So, for those who missed it, word came down that Schumer renegotiated her contract with Netflix. This apparently came about after she discovered what Chappelle and Rock were paid for their respective stand-up specials. Look, I’m all for everyone getting their money, but the idea that Schumer is on the same level as those two legends is laughable at best. Now, when I say laughable, that’s definitely in STARK contrast to Schumer’s comedy. See, she’s just not funny, fam. Like, at all, bruh. Listen, it isn’t hyperbole when I say I’ve NEVER laughed at one of her jokes, son. Shit, I’m just being honest, man.

Now, if we take my bias out of the question, let’s just look at some facts here. Chappelle’s recent specials served as a return to form for the comedic hero. After YEARS away from the scene, his two Netflix specials were presented as his return to the limelight. All in all, why on Earth would Schumer be paid the same as him? Fam, she has NEVER shifted culture the way Chappelle or Rock have! Simply put, she’s never been in the same stratosphere as them.

Keeping it a buck, equal pay is definitely a real issue in our society. However; I don’t think this Schumer situation is an example of that. Bruh, she can’t be mentioned in the same breath as Chappelle or Rock, and it has nothing to do with her being a woman. Frankly, she hasn’t put in enough work to be considered amongst their ranks. In my eyes, paying her the same as them would be a disservice to Chappelle’s and Rock’s respective legacies. Simply put, they’ve been doing this A LOT longer (and A LOT better) than she has.

In the end, I hate when people inject social issues into irrelevant circumstances. Ultimately, Schumer’s situation isn’t an equal pay issue, man. By and by, her body of work just doesn’t stack up to theirs. Hell, she even admitted as much, son. Listen, facts are facts, fam. It just is what it is, bruh. LC out.

Mark Zuckerberg Invented Skynet

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m only halfway joking with the title of this post. On the real, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are flying really close to sun, man. I mean, artificial intelligence sounds good until Skynet has us all hiding underground. Ok, yes, that does sound far-fetched, but I don’t like the idea of AI developing its own language, fam. All in all, it doesn’t sound like Facebook has a proper handle on the situation.

Now, let me explain why “conspiracy theorist” LC is awake today. Apparently, an AI system being developed by Facebook created its own language. At first, researchers thought that the AI was speaking gibberish. This assertion continued until they realized that the different AI agents were able to understand this coded language. Basically, these muhfuckas gave up on English and were still able to talk to each other. To make matters worse, the same outcome has occurred in every scenario researchers have created.

Ok, let me get this straight, son. Scientists created the AI, programmed the agents to speak English and the agents said “fuck that.” Nah, fam, I ain’t comfortable with any of this shit, bruh. Before we know it, John Connor is going to have to send Arnold Schwarzenegger back in time to defeat the T-1000, man. Shit, all jokes aside, we’re setting a dangerous precedent if we’re creating technology that we can’t control. By and by, these inventions are supposed to help us, not have us on edge, fam.

In the end, maybe Elon Musk is right. Look, Zuckerberg is already a legend for everything he’s been able to accomplish this early in life. However; maybe he really doesn’t fully understand AI. All I know is, I’m not looking forward to a rising of the machines. Shit, people may be looking for a zombie apocalypse, but a robot apocalypse might really be around the corner, son. LC out.

P.S. I wholeheartedly believe James Cameron is from the future, son. I mean, he predicted all of this shit, man. Real talk, we all need to consult him going forward. Clearly, he’s the only one who can save us, fam. That is all.

Wait… People Really Want The Rock To Run For President?!

Fam, what in tarnation is going on around here? Like, is this the world that Donald Trump has created? Do people really think that absolutely ANYONE can be President now? Bruh, this shit needs to stop ASAP! No, The Rock does not need to run for government, son. Listen, the man is an actor and a wrestler. He has NO qualifications for the highest office in the world, man. All in all, politics needs to be left to the politicians. The clown shows need to cease, fam.

So, how did we get here? Well, we can thank Kenton Tilford from West Virginia. Now, this dude actually started a campaign committee and filed to draft Dwayne Johnson for President. Like, I can’t make this shit up, son. Listen, the committee, named “Run the Rock 2020,” is actually a real thing, man. Apparently, Tilford believes that Johnson can provide “real leadership” and even created the hashtag #MakeAmericaRockAgain.

Look, I won’t lie, son. This bullshit has made me despise Trump even more, man. Shit, this is the climate he’s created. He’s founded a world where political experience doesn’t matter anymore. Hell, every time he makes some ridiculous move, his defenders just chalk it up to him being a “political novice.” Well, that means he doesn’t deserve the fucking job, man! Bruh, I can’t just roll up into Toyota and say “I’m going to make the next car.” Nah, I don’t know shit about building vehicles, fam! Listen, I’d probably get physically thrown out of the building, people.

To be fair, I’m a huge fan of The Rock. While his movies can be hit or miss, he’s a muhfucking legend in the squared circle, son. On the real, I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve called someone a “jabroni,” man. Keeping it a buck, no one has lived a full life until they ask someone a  question, wait for them to answer and then yell “it doesn’t matter!” With that being said, Johnson doesn’t need to be our damn President, fam. At this point, our country is already in shambles because we gave a television star the nuclear codes. Let’s not continue our buffoonery, bruh.

In the end, the novelty has worn off, fam. On the real, I just want politicians to hold political offices. Now, while I may hate a lot of them, at least I can say that they know how government works. By and by, I’m just tired of seeing our elected officials look like sideshow attractions. That is all. LC out.
