White On White Crime: Eminem vs. Machine Gun Kelly

So, let me get straight to the point, son. On the real, I have NO idea what songs people are listening to, man. I mean, there are really folks out there who believe Machine Gun Kelly beat Eminem? Like, they really believe “Rap Devil” is better than “KILLSHOT?” Really?! Shit, if that’s the case, I’d like someone to clarify what the criteria is, fam. Is it based on lyrics? Is it based on hooks? Is it based on the beat? Seriously, I’d like someone to explain this shit to me because there is NO way MGK got the upper hand here, bruh.

Ok, before I continue, let me make something clear, son: I’m actually an MGK fan. Real talk, I think he’s an under appreciated artist, man. Frankly, he’s a great live performer and he can actually rap. Keeping it a buck, I was bumping the hell out of his Bloom album when it dropped, fam. Side note, everyone should go listen to “Golden God,” bruh. That song is fucking tough, people! In any case, I just wanted to make my stance on MGK known, folks. I don’t want anyone to think I’m just being a hater here. With that being said, Em cleaned him up on “KILLSHOT.”

Listen, let’s go through some of the lyrics on “Rap Devil,” son. Are folks trying to tell me that “your beard is weird” lyrics are hurting Eminem? Are folks trying to tell me that bars about sweatsuits and “corny hats” are hurting Eminem? Man, get the fuckity-fuck outta here! Look, do I think “KILLSHOT” is Em’s best diss? Hell no! However, lines like “the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed” are better than ANYTHING in MGK’s song. For God‘s sake, do lyrics matter at all anymore? Is comprehension that low, fam? All in all, a cool hook and an 808-laced beat can’t fight the obvious, bruh. It just is what it is.

In the end, this is just my opinion, son. Ultimately, I have a right to think that motherfuckers are crazy, man. At the end of the day, people can decide for themselves, fam. With that being said, both diss tracks are below, bruh. By and by, I love Rap beef, people! More bars, more insults, more drama! Let’s do this! That is all. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘Here & Now’ & ‘Legacy’

Ok, before anybody asks, no, I’m not restarting New Music Fridays per se. In actuality, today’s post was inspired by my recent show, son. Now, I only had a ten-minute set, but I was able to squeeze three songs in there, man. In any case, for those who are familiar with my music, “Two Eyes” was the first song I performed. However, the last two joints I rocked out to were new, fam. So, I feel like it’s only right for me to share them with everyone, bruh.

With that being said, everybody can listen to “Here & Now” and “Legacy” below, son. As always, the songs can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. All I can say is, it’s good to be back in my element, man. Keeping it a buck, based on the amount of time I’ve been away, I was nervous before I got onstage, fam. But, once I got up there, I felt like I was at home, bruh. Shout-out to all of the good people who came to see me. All in all, there will be more shows and more music in the near future, folks. Fuck with your boy! LC out.

I Need More Drake & Meek Mill Songs

So, before anyone says I’m fake, let me get these thoughts out of the way, son: I still believe Meek Mill lost to Drake and I’m still judging Drake for not responding to Pusha T. Ok, now that we’ve covered that, I want more records from Drake and Meek, man. I mean, I’ve always been a fan of both artists. In addition, they make great records together. With that being said, now that they’ve made amends, I need some new “I’m young and I’m rich” type music from them, fam. All in all, let her games begin, bruh!

Ok, for those who missed it, Drake and Meek publicly made up with each other. During a show at TD Garden in Boston, Drake brought Meek onstage to do the Dreams and Nightmares intro. Now, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain the history between these two artists. Shit, we were all paying attention when they were beefing with one another, son. Regardless, after Meek’s battles with the justice system and Drake’s continued success, they’ve managed to put their issues aside, man. Keeping it a buck, I love a good Rap battle, but it’s good to see these dudes dead the petty shit, fam.

In the end, ain’t much else to say here, bruh. Ultimately, I’m just here for the music, son. Now, in case anyone forgot about the fire they made together, I’m posting “Amen” and “R.I.C.O.” below, man. By and by, both songs are STILL jams, fam. At the end of the day, that’s all that really matters, folks. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck, Cardi B & Nicki Minaj?!

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, both Cardi B AND Nicki Minaj need to be called out for unnecessary fuckery. At this point, what are they even beefing about, man? I mean, is it about who’s more successful? Is it about who raps better? Is it about who looks better? Well, let me tell them both something: NOBODY FUCKING CARES, FAM! Damn, both of these women are living their best lives but can’t seem to leave the dumb shit alone. All in all, New York Fashion Week is not the fucking time to throw hands, bruh!

Ok, to be clear, there are 80 million stories about why Cardi confronted Nicki at a Harper’s Bazaar party. According to Cardi, Nicki said something negative about Kulture, her daughter with Offset, and she wanted to lay hands on Nicki. Now, Nicki denies this but it seems as if she did like a tweet that said something disparaging about Kulture. In addition, Nicki previously dragged Stormi, daughter of Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner, into an argument about album sales. So, Nicki isn’t the most reliable source here, son.

In any case, Cardi thought it was a brilliant idea to confront Nicki at this NYFW party. Look, I have kids, so I understand wanting to molly-whop someone who slighted them. However, not at a fucking formal event, man! For God‘s sake, Cardi was wearing a damn Dolce & Gabbana dress! Let’s just say that ain’t the most functional outfit to scrap in, fam. On the real, both of these women are fucking wrong, bruh. Nicki is wrong for liking some bullshit on Twitter and Cardi is wrong for pressing the issue at this public event. Listen, these are grown fucking women, folks. They need to start acting like it.

In the end, I’m sick of hearing about this beef, son. Real talk, nothing positive has come out of this, man. Ultimately, Nicki looks like a bitter chick who’s mad that she finally has some commercial competition and Cardi looks like an uncontrollable wildcard who may block her blessings. At the end of the day, both women are too successful for this stupid shit, fam. By and by, they need to knock it the fuck off, bruh. Everybody loses here. That is all. LC out.

RIP Mac Miller

So, let me keep it a buck, son. Listen, I’m not about to sit here and pretend like I was a Mac Miller fan from day one. To be real, I became a fan of his music after he dropped his Macadelic mixtape in 2012. As a matter of fact, that mixtape along with his Watching Movies with the Sound Off album made me a believer, man. From there, I was onboard, fam. I was onboard for his clever quips, his production skills and his live instrumentation. With that being said, it’s a damn shame that he succumbed to his vices, bruh. All in all, Rest In Peace to Miller, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mac Miller passed away on Friday. At only 26 years old, the Pittsburgh rapper died from an apparent drug overdose. Now, for anyone who’s followed his story, he’s had a long history with abuse, son. Apparently, his drug use is one of the main reasons why Ariana Grande left him. In any case, it seemed like he was trying to deal with his issues, man. I mean, judging from his new Swimming album, Miller knew he had some demons to deal with, fam. Because of this, it’s extra sad that his internal strife got the best of him, bruh.

Listen, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, son: everybody needs to leave drugs the fuck alone, man! I mean, cotdamn, fam! How many more people have to die before we realize this shit is for the birds, bruh? Honestly, when does addiction ever end positively, folks? Seriously, the only favorable outcome is when users quit the shit, brethren. At this point, I can’t even count the number of musicians who have succumbed to illicit substances. All I wanna know is, when will enough be enough, people? When will everyone understand that this never ends well for anyone?

In the end, RIP to Mac Miller, son. Ultimately, he died waaaaaaay too fucking young, man. By and by, he had every reason to live, fam. Look, despite everything he’s already accomplished, he still could’ve done a lot more, bruh. At the end of the day, no one’s life is over at 26, folks. *Sigh* Fuck, man! LC out.

P.S. Real talk, everyone needs to leave Ariana Grande alone, son. Shit, berating her in her Instagram comments makes no sense, people. Look, I’m a Miller fan, but his death isn’t her fault, man. Now, I wouldn’t be surprised if their breakup had an adverse affect on him. But, she didn’t put drugs in his system, fam. Listen, we can be sad about Miller’s death and still hold him accountable for his actions, bruh. So, quit the nonsense, folks. That is all.

Nas Wrote A Dissertation About Kelis

So, this entire story is a mess, son. I mean, I’ve already talked about Kelis‘ allegations against Nas. I’ve already spoken about how disappointed I was/am at the idea of one of my favorite rappers being an abuser. Now, apparently, Nas has had enough, man. In probably the longest Instagram post I’ve ever seen, Nas addressed every statement that Kelis has made against him. In addition, he made a few explosive accusations of his own, fam.

Ok, before I continue, let me make something clear, bruh. Look, I’m not here to take sides in this debate, son. Frankly, none of us were in the Jones family home, so we don’t know what’s real, man. With that being said, Nas alleged that Kelis completely fabricated the rumors against him. Also, he claimed that SHE was the one who was abusive in the relationship. Shit, he told stories about how she attacked him in front of their son and alienated him from some of his family and friends.

From there, Nas claimed that Kelis is only doing this because of their custody fight. Currently, the two stars are in court over their son, and according to Nas, THIS is why Kelis is saying such things about him. Now, to be real, I don’t know what to make of this scenario, fam. Like I said before, none of us were in their home. So, I don’t know who’s telling the truth and who’s lying. All I know is, it’s a damn shame that all of this is playing out in public, bruh. Hell, they have a son to raise, man. On the real, the kid doesn’t need to grow up knowing that his parents hate each other, people.

In the end, people can read Nas’ dissertation here. Real talk, I suggest that everyone reads the entire thing, son. Ok, yes, it’s long as fuck, but Nas said a lot of shit in there, man. Ultimately, custody battles are always trash and tragic, fam. By and by, ALL parents need to figure out how to co-parent harmoniously. At the end of the day, the children need it, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Hi, My Name Is LC & I Have A Show On Saturday

So, let me keep this brief, folks. As the title says, I have a show this coming Saturday. Now, those who know me or are familiar with my blog know that I’m a musician at heart. Hell, I spent most of 2017 putting out songs through my New Music Fridays thingamajig. In any case, there was one piece that was still missing, son: performing. On the real, I spent most of my late teens/early 20s on stages and I got away from that, man. Well, that ends this weekend, fam. The boy LC is back and ready to get down with the shits, bruh!

With that being said, let’s get the proceedings proceeding, son. So, for anyone in New York City, I’m performing at The West End this Saturday at 10:30 PM. Doors open at 10:00 PM and I have an 8-minute set. The plan is to knock out three songs, so it’s enough time to get a little vibe going, man. Anyway, if anyone is down to roll through, click here for tickets. We can all get hammered after I hit the stage, fam. Furthermore, shout-out to Scott Morris and Mor.Bookings for giving the dude an opportunity, bruh.

In the end, that’s all I’ve got, son. Shit, let’s have a good time, man! See everyone on Saturday! LC out.
