dvsn Is Drake’s Best Act

So, I won’t lie, son. As I write this post, I’m playing “Nuh Time/Tek Time” at ignorant volumes. With that being said, I won’t mince words here, man: dvsn is BY FAR Drake‘s best act, fam. I mean, given the current musical landscape, this is exactly the type of R&B that I want to hear, bruh. Shit, in an age where singers can’t sing and producers can’t play instruments, I get hyped when I hear music like this. All in all, anybody who’s sleeping needs to get onboard.

Now, keeping it a buck, I caught on to the dvsn wave around the time “Too Deep” dropped. I was aware of their first two songs (“The Line” and “With Me“) but I didn’t take the time to listen. Needless to say, once I heard “Too Deep,” I scavenged for anything else I could find, son. In any case, once Sept. 5th came out, it was a wrap, man. Besides the aforementioned jams, I kept “Try/Effortless” and “Do It Well” on repeat, fam.

Moving on, as of right now, I’m knee deep in their new album, Morning After. Now, I didn’t think I’d be able to say this, but the production may be better on this record, bruh. I mean, Nineteen85 put his whole foot, ankle and shin in these instrumentals, son. In addition, Daniel Daley is still showing folks that vocals matter. Listen, let me just say it like this: they sampled the god Maxwell on “P.O.V.” and I didn’t want to shoot them in the kneecaps, man. Real talk, that takes talent, fam. All I know is, lesser men would’ve royally fucked that up, bruh. By and by, folks need to quit reading this and just go listen to the album.

In the end, this post ain’t a shot at anyone else at OVO Sound, son. Folks can keep enjoying PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan and Roy Woods, man. All I’m saying is, if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on dvsn, fam. Ultimately, any music that’ll make a girl strip should be appreciated, bruh. Shit, nothing else needs to be said here. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘On My Bended Knee’

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! LC is back with another edition of New Music Fridays. By now, the people who follow this blog should know the deal, son. With that being said, “On My Bended Knee” is today’s jam. Now, all of my music is personal, but this song is REALLY personal, man. Real talk, I just had to get some shit off my chest, fam. In any case, the same rules apply, bruh. Everyone can stream/download the song on SoundCloud and stream it on YouTube. Let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, folks. LC out.

Eminem Ethered Donald Trump

So, to be clear, I’m not going to spend any time talking about how legendary Eminem is, son. At this point, if someone out there doesn’t know that Em is a Top 3 rapper of all time, then I can’t help that person, man. With that being said, I’m always hyped when he wakes up from hibernation, fam. These days, if he’s dropping any bars, then he usually has something to say. All in all, that’s exactly what happened during last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards. The Detroit luminary decided to hit the cyphers and completely obliterated Donald Trump.

Now, I won’t lie, bruh. I’m not going to sit here and dissect everything Em said. Frankly, it would be easier for everyone to just listen to the verse for themselves. In any case, the freestyle is called “The Storm” and Em went hamburger batshit crazy on y’alls president. Essentially, he touched on damn near every bit of fuckery of Trump’s campaign and presidency. Ultimately, I’ll just let Em speak for himself, son. By and by, folks can watch the video ether below. Viva la Eminem! LC out.

What The F*ck Is Nelly Being Accused Of?!

Look, I won’t lie, son. I don’t know what to make of this story at all, man. I mean, as of right now, all I know is that a woman is accusing Nelly of rape. Now, keeping it a buck, Nelly isn’t the first famous person to be accused of some dastardly shit, fam. With that being said, I’m going to wait for all of the facts to come out before I judge one way or the other. In any case, NONE of this looks good for Cornell, bruh.

Now, for those who missed it, Nelly is in some hot water right now. To begin, he’s currently on tour with Florida Georgia Line. Anyway, after a show close to Seattle, Washington, he turned up in a nearby club. Apparently, this is where he met the woman who’s accusing him of rape. According to her statement, in her inebriated state, she was invited back to Nelly’s tour bus and he allegedly assaulted her without a condom. From there, she claims that he offered her “hush money” and kicked her off of the bus when she refused.

Moving on, shortly after she called 911, Nelly was arrested. After a few hours, he was released without charges being filed. However; there’s still going to be an investigation to check the validity of the woman’s story. All I can say is, I hope the story isn’t true, fam. But, on the other hand, this type of behavior isn’t foreign to famous men, bruh.

Ok, being real, this is where the story should’ve ended, son. However; ever since this story broke, people have been posting weird ass videos of Nelly. Now, based on the footage I’ve seen, this dude is out here being inappropriate with underage girls onstage. Shit, everyone should just take a look for themselves, man. In one of the videos, homie is out here asking a girl if she likes school while twirling her hair. Wait, what the FUCK is that about?! Since when is ANY of that cool, fam? How come no one brought this fuck shit up before?! He should’ve BEEN put on blast for this questionable shit, bruh! Real talk, he needs to explain himself, folks!

In the end, I don’t know what to make of any of this, son. I just wrote an entire post and I don’t have an answer for anything. What kinda bullshit is Nelly on, man? These videos coupled with the rape allegations paint a VERY grim portrait of the man. Ultimately, I truly hope I don’t find out some shit about him that I can’t un-know, fam. *Sigh* Nelly needs to start talking, bruh. ASAP. LC out.

Big K.R.I.T. Is Grossly Underappreciated´╗┐

So, I was jamming to Big K.R.I.T.’s new song “Confetti” this morning and I had a thought: why don’t more people talk about how fucking dope he is, son? I mean, this dude has never dropped a wack project and he’s still flying under the radar, man. Ok, yes, he does have a strong fan base and does well for himself, but in my eyes, he should be a way bigger artist. With that being said, why isn’t K.R.I.T. as big as his peers?

Now, to be clear, I’ve been a Krizzle fan for a long time now. I came to the fold around the time he dropped his K.R.I.T. Wuz Here mixtape. Listen, the first time I heard “Glass House” with Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa, I wanted to break things, fam. Look, that song has one of the hardest bass lines EVER, bruh! In any case, as both a rapper and a producer, K.R.I.T. consistently puts out great bodies of work. So, I never understood why he isn’t mentioned in the same class as a Kendrick Lamar or a J. Cole. Shit, to me, he’s just as talented as any of the upper echelon artists.

Anyway, if anyone wants to hear what I hear in K.R.I.T., then here’s some homework, son. Everyone needs to go listen to K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, Return of 4eva, Live from the Underground and Cadillactica. Keeping it a buck, that should prepare folks for his upcoming 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time album. All I know is, based on the aforementioned “Confetti” and “Keep The Devil Off,” this record is already sounding amazing, man. I shall definitely be there when the album drops, people.

In the end, it’s about time that this man got his just due, son. At some point, consistency and talent have to pay off, man. On the real, K.R.I.T. has already proven his worth, fam. Now, it’s time to let him cook, bruh. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘On The Scene’

What’s the word, good people? LC is officially back at it with New Music Fridays. Now, just in case anyone is confused, yes, I just referred to myself in the third person, son. I mean, that’s how good I feel today, man. In any case, I’m back with another new joint for the masses to get down with. So, the song is called “On The Scene” and it can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. As always, let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, fam. LC out.

Cardi B Ethered Azealia Banks

Listen, can Azealia Banks please go away? I mean, for someone who actually has talent, she’s spent her entire career sabotaging herself. At this point, I can guarantee that people know her more for her fuckery than her actual music. Shit, just take a look at this list of tomfoolery, son. With that being said, she jumped out of the window again when she came for Cardi B. *Sigh* I really used to champion this chick, but now she needs to disappear forever (Cardi B voice).

Now, for those who missed it, while people like me were hyped that “Bodak Yellow” went number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, Banks was hating. Out of nowhere, Banks turned Cardi’s success into a race issue and her argument made no sense. She claimed that Black men were “too hype” for a Latina woman, but didn’t support artists like Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj in the same manner. In addition, when it comes to Nicki, Banks stated that Cardi is just a “poor man’s” version of the Queens rapper.

Ok, there are NUMEROUS things wrong with Banks’ logic, man. First, Cardi is half-Black. Common sense tells us that racism isn’t a good argument when the person being criticized has Black DNA. All in all, Cardi may be Dominican, but she’s also Trinidadian, fam. Meaning, Banks’ entire dissertation was invalid from its inception.

Second, when haven’t people supported Remy and Nicki? Hell, Nicki has a top 10 hit on the charts RIGHT NOW as part of Yo Gotti‘s “Rake It Up.” Also, Remy just had a major hit last year with “All The Way Up,” bruh. Ok, yeah, those two women have issues with each other, but that doesn’t have any impact on the fans supporting their music. So, what the fuck is Banks even talking about, son?

With all of that being said, Cardi had the perfect response to Banks’ nonsense. After all of the hate, she posted a video of Banks jamming HARD to “Bodak Yellow,” with the caption “one of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!” Now, how can Banks justify her idiocy after that? She came out of left field to hate on Cardi and was a fan this whole time. All in all, stupid is as stupid does, man. Forrest Gump dropped that jewel back in 1994, fam.

In the end, hating is not a good career choice, bruh. Ultimately, Banks looks like a clown and has further sullied her already tarnished reputation. *Sigh* I guess some people really don’t want to prosper, son. By and by, Banks is hopeless now. LC out.
