What Do Y’all Want From This Site?

So, today’s post is going to be a little bit different, son. Basically, I’d like to have a direct dialogue with my audience, man. With that being said, I want to ask a simple question: what does everyone want to see on this site? Now, at this point, I’ve spent a number of years just rambling about whatever crossed my mind. On the real, I’m super thankful for everybody who holds me down, fam. In any case, I’ve never really taken the time to cater to the needs of my supporters. Well, that changes today, bruh!

All in all, I’d like to hear from all of the fine folks out there. So, what kind of topics would people like to see me touch on? Is there a different format that I should consider embracing? Feel free to let me know on any of my platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or right here on this site. Side bar, my handle is “icbfdotcom” on all of those social media sites. Thanks a lot, brethren. LC out.

P.S. Shout-out to my wife Triciah for giving me the idea to do this. Love ya, babe!


So, I Was On A Podcast…

So, I’m going to keep this brief, son. Basically, I was recently featured on a podcast, man. With that being said, I want to give a major shout-out to my homie, Huey Booker. For whatever reason, he thought I’d be a good guest on his The Book of Huey podcast. In any case, I was featured on his “Black Men Speak, Vol. 1: Legacy” episode. On it, we talked about a variety of topics, ranging from marriage to fatherhood to my blog. In addition, we spoke about a few of the lessons learned from Black Panther. Hell, he even asked me about my time on Ask A Black Man with MadameNoire. All in all, we covered a lot of bases and spoke pretty candidly.

Now, all of the fine folks out there can listen to the episode below. Side note, now that I’ve done a podcast, I’m putting the pressure on Sydnee Washington and Marie Faustin to put me on their The Unofficial Expert show. Look, I’m just saying, fam. Anyway, The Book of Huey will be available on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher, etc. However; I’m posting the SoundCloud link below. Either way, get down with the getdown and listen to Black men keeping it a buck. That is all. LC out.

Will Smith Has The Best Account On Instagram

So, let me be real, son. These days, I spend a lot of time talking about serious topics. I mean, there’s so much fuckity-fuck shit going on, I feel like I need to make sense of it all. In any case, I’d like to take this time to speak about something lighthearted. With that being said, let’s all touch base about Will Smith‘s awesome Instagram account. Real talk, his videos may be the best thing about IG right now, man. All in all, if anyone disagrees, do us all a favor and get acquainted with Willard’s greatness.

Ok, let me explain why I’m such a fan of Smith’s IG antics. Now, growing up, I was a HUGE fan of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. On the real, Smith was a cotdamn fool and it always made for entertaining television. Anyway, when I look at Smith’s IG page, it’s clear as day that he wasn’t acting on that show. Like, that’s REALLY his personality, fam. Look, I pretty much always knew that, but it’s dope as hell to see it in real time, bruh. Listen, this dude is one of the most successful people in the world and he’s still out here terrorizing his children and acting an ass. Yeah, we can wax poetically about his inspirational videos, which are great, but I’m also here for the jokes, people. Keeping it a buck, his tomfoolery encourages me to continue being my stupid ass self. Sorry in advance, kids.

In the end, there’s nothing else for me to say, son. Ultimately, I could describe my favorite posts from his feed, but I’d much rather show them, man. With that being said, folks can take a look at my favorite videos below. By and by, people can take a break from the twerking videos for a second. Yes, I know they’re wonderful, but they’ll still be there after we’re done here, fam. That is all. LC out.

Wait… Hold Up… Say that again?!

RIP Combat Jack

So, for those who don’t know, I’m a big podcast guy, son. Like, for someone who’s a musician, I spend waaay more time listening to podcasts, man. In any case, out of all of the podcasts in the known universe, the Combat Jack Show is always one of my go-to listens. With that being said, I’m sad to hear about the death of Reggie Ossé aka Combat Jack. Now, while I was aware of his cancer diagnosis, I didn’t expect him to go so soon, fam. All in all, Rest In Peace to one of Hip Hop‘s podcast pioneers, bruh.

Ok, back in October, Jack came out of the blue and told the world that he was recovering from colon cancer surgery. At the time, that news was shocking because us fans didn’t know he was sick. Anyway, in my eyes, even though I’ve personally seen the affects of cancer on loved ones, I thought Jack was going to be alright. Now, my sentiments were mainly based on Jack’s own demeanor. I mean, even though he knew he was in a precarious position, he still had a good attitude about everything. Real talk, he refused to let the cancer dim his light, son. All I know is, his outward composure was commendable as fuck, man.

Moving on, although Jack is now gone, his influence can’t be denied, fam. Listen, outside of his history as a prominent lawyer in Hip Hop, he founded one of the culture’s most recognizable podcast brands, fam. Hell, as of right now, who isn’t on the Loud Speakers Network, bruh? Currently, they have The Read with Kid Fury and Crissle, The Brilliant Idiots with Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schulz, Lip Service with Angela Yee and many more. In addition, they also had Tax Season with Taxstone before his unfortunate legal situation. Now, when I add on Mogul, his Chris Lighty documentary on Spotify, it’s clear that this man had a MAJOR impact on the zeitgeist, son.

In the end, shout-out to Mr. Ossé for everything he’s accomplished, man. Ultimately, I hope he realized his impact while he was here, fam. By and by, he was a real torchbearer for Hip Hop and that should never be forgotten. Once again, RIP to Combat Jack. LC out.

Rob Kardashian Is Out Here WILIN’!

Look, on a normal basis, I don’t give a fuck about the Kardashian‘s. On a normal basis, I don’t give a fuck about the Jenner‘s. Frankly, in my eyes, there’s no need to pay attention to people who are just famous for the sake of being famous. With that being said, this dude Rob Kardashian is out here BUGGING, son! Good fucking Lord, man! This guy literally put ALL of his fuckery with Blac Chyna on Front Street, fam. Ultimately, all I want to know is, why the FUCK is all of this tomfoolery on social media, bruh?

Now, before I continue, let me briefly speak about Chyna. Keeping it a buck, I truly hope feminists don’t light my ass on fire for what I’m about to say. However; at what point can we call a woman’s behavior unacceptable? Listen, Rob is 1000% wrong for putting her business on social media. But, how is it cool for her to send him a video of her smashing another man?

Look, if the two of them are still together, then she just sent him a video of her cheating on him. On the flip side, if they’re not together, then she just sent him an extremely petty and cruel video of her moving on with someone else. Either way, that’s fucking foul and corny, man. No, Rob doesn’t own her body, but that doesn’t mean she should be excused for being a damn asshole, son.

With that being said, let’s get back to Rob’s shenanigans. Bruh, this fool literally used his Instagram page like an automatic assault rifle. Shit, it was just post after post after post about all of the things Chyna has allegedly been doing to him. Now, thanks to his unwarranted ranting, we’ve heard that she regularly smashes other dudes in their house, does drugs, had post-baby surgery and that he pays for her entire lifestyle. In addition, after his mini-argument with T.I., we’ve also heard that Tip and Tiny Harris supposedly had a threesome with Chyna. By and by, NONE of us should know ANY of this shit, bruh!

Fam, it is never, NEVER okay to put a woman’s business out in public. All jokes aside, Rob will be lucky if he isn’t hit with a “revenge porn” charge. Like, he legit released pics of her nipples and box on the internet, son. On the real, that’s NEVER cool, man. Seriously, it doesn’t matter what his gripe is with her. He simply doesn’t have the right to expose her in such a manner. In my eyes, that’s some real sucker shit, fam. Honestly, instead of crying through a keyboard, he should go handle his business like a grownup. After all, this is the mother of his child. He’s going to have to deal with her for the foreseeable future.

In the end, this entire situation is ridiculous, bruh. Chyna is a loser for sending Rob that video and Rob is a loser for EVERYTHING he did after that. Ultimately, these two people deserve each other, son. I mean, two clowns can’t help but create a circus, man. *Sigh* This is yet another mind-numbingly dumb storyline by the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Man, these people really do know how to stay in the media, huh? In any case, all I can do is shake my head, folks. LC out.

Do We Want The Righteous Or The Ratchet?

So, to begin, the above picture has little to do with the premise of this post. Frankly, I’m using the images of Ayesha Curry and Cardi B as a means of trolling. With that being said, I have a real question for all of my readers. Does everyone out there want the righteous or the ratchet? I ask that because I always notice the difference in response between posts about political/social issues and posts about pop culture. All I want to know is, is celebrity more important than the issues that affect our everyday lives?

Now, before I continue, let me keep it a buck. On the real, I’m thankful for ANYONE who reads this blog. I mean, I’m wholeheartedly surprised that folks pay attention to my random ramblings. In any case, as people could probably tell, I’ll talk about any and everything on this platform. Frankly, this blog is essentially a snapshot of my free association writing. So, I will continue to touch on a wide variety of topics. However; I do find it odd/slightly disheartening that people would rather read about things like Rap beef than police brutality.

Look, let me be clear, son. Regardless of what I write about, I’ve gained a base that will support me. I mean, that’s fucking beautiful, man! I check my analytics everyday and do the Carlton Dance out of pure joy. With that being said, it scares me that sensationalism seems to be more important than reality. While I thoroughly enjoy making fun of pop culture fuckery, I also want people to take a greater interest in substantial issues. Being honest, in the grand scheme of things, speculation about Kim Kardashian‘s ass shouldn’t trump healthcare, pun intended.

In the end, I’m sorry if I’m coming off a bit preachy here. On the real, that’s truly not my intention, man. Listen, I’m really no better than anyone else, son. Basically, I’m just a random dude with an internet connection who happens to care. Ultimately, my only goal is to make everyone out there aware of what’s happening around us. Now, don’t worry, I’ll keep making fun of our celebrities when they do dumb shit, fam. However; I just want people to care about the righteous as much as we seem to care about the ratchet. That is all. LC out.

Let’s Talk About This ‘Hurt Bae’ Video

So, let me start this post by saying that I might make a few people upset today. Now, maybe it’s just me, but I wasn’t moved by this “Hurt Bae” video circling around the internet. While it’s clear that infidelity ruined the relationship between Kourtney Jorge and Leonard Long III, I still had so many questions when the video was over. In actuality, this video strengthened my resolve when it comes to cheating in relationships. The way I see it, a lot of people out there need to read what I’m about to write.

Ok, where do I begin? So, Leonard apparently cheated on Kourtney like it was a recreational sport. She asked him how many times he stepped out on her and he legitimately couldn’t give her a number. He beasted that many times, son! She even described a scenario where she walked in on him smashing another chick and HE told HER to leave. Wow, son! Fucking wow!!! Now, even after all of that, she STILL took his ass back!

In any case, during this discussion, he tried to reinforce the fact that his “commitment phobia” was the real problem. He expressed to her that she was the perfect girlfriend and there was nothing she could’ve done to prevent his behavior. On some level, it’s good that he’s owning up to his fuck shit, but I still have so many issues with this entire situation, man.

At one point, he flatly asked her why she stayed. She said it was because he was her best friend. Look, baby girl, FUCK ALL OF THAT! What kind of “best friend” consistently disrespects someone they claim to love? It’s not like he made one or two regrettable mistakes, man. This dude made it a point to keep on fucking other women. He wasn’t thinking about her feelings or her well-being during his shenanigans. She does not owe him any type of bond or affection. He clearly has not earned it.

Moving on, here’s the part that most people don’t like to hear: if Person A disrespects Person B on a frequent basis, then it’s now Person B’s fault. People can only do to us what we allow them to. If we keep on rewarding an undeserving person with our love, then we cannot complain when they continue to hurt us. We should’ve learned our lesson by now. Kourtney never learned her lesson and Leonard kept on abusing her devotion. It got to the point where she was checking his phone AND his emails, man. Yet and still, she didn’t leave him. I truly don’t get it, son.

Now, when it comes to Leonard, be an adult, bruh. Don’t just put the prospect of leaving the relationship on her. If he knew he couldn’t be faithful, then there was no need for him to be in this union. He could’ve left at any time. Instead, he chose to stick around and be a fuckboy. He can question her for staying, but I question him too. It takes maturity to be honest about intentions and Leonard behaved like a child. Grow up, son! Either love that woman or let her go.

Ultimately, the both of them are at fault here. She’s at fault for sticking with him and he’s at fault for not holding her down. I hear women constantly talk about how they stand by their cheating men, while the reverse is rarely true. Look, women shouldn’t get points for holding down a cornball. In my eyes, it’s better to leave than to be repeatedly hurt. Then again, what do I know? People are still going to do fuck shit, son. *Sigh* LC out.

P.S. Everyone can watch the original video I’m referring to below. That is all.
