Daenerys Targaryen Was Always Trash

Disclaimer: Spoilers upon spoilers upon spoilers, son. Don’t say I didn’t give fair warning.

So, let me be real, son. At the beginning of May, I had only seen one episode of Game of Thrones. Since then, I have binged season after season after blood-filled season, man. In any case, the show is probably fresher in my mind than a lot of the original viewers. With that being said, I have a message for all of the Daenerys Targaryen supporters: she’s always been trash, fam. On the real, she would’ve been a terrible ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.

Ok, before an Unsullied or Dothraki sympathizer cuts my head off, let me explain, bruh. Now, given her rapid and nonsensical descent into the Mad Queen, I can understand the people who are upset with her story arc. However, if we’re being honest, she had a history of making terrible decisions, son. Frankly, given her track record, I never thought she’d be a good fit for Westeros. Furthermore, I think it’s high time that we review some of her biggest blunders, man.

First, let’s talk about Khal Drogo. Look, by foolishly trusting in Mirri Maz Duur, Dany got Drogo and their unborn son killed, fam. Well, Drogo was really a vegetable, but he was basically dead, folks. The silver lining was the fact that she birthed her dragons out of the chaos. But, that wasn’t by design, bruh. Shit, she literally had to lose her family to receive her “children.”

Next, there was the shit show that was the takeover of Astapor, Mereen and Yunkai. Now, to be fair, it was a great idea to free the slaves in these cities. But, Dany had no governmental plan for the aftermath. I mean, she got rid of the slavers, but didn’t give the people a new way to live. So, the cities started to revert back to their old ways. Hell, one dude even asked her to be sold back into slavery because he was living better back then. Look, Dany had the best of intentions, but good intentions don’t automatically equal rulership, fam.

Next, let’s talk about her awful game plan against the Night King and the White Walkers. Now, can someone answer this for me? If the wights can be killed by fire, and Dany has three fire-breathing dragons, then why the FUCK did she send the Dothraki horde to get slaughtered, bruh? Like, why weren’t Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion plan A, son? Why were any soldiers dying when the queen had fucking dragons, man?! For God‘s sake, that’s their fucking purpose, fam! Go burn some shit down, kids! Sheesh!

On top of all of that, her sense of entitlement got on my nerves. Listen, Westeros does not belong to the Targaryen’s. The way I see it, Dany’s ancestors obtained the Iron Throne through fire and blood. It was taken from them by blood. Like, that’s how empires work, son. If her people couldn’t hold the fort, then it’s their loss, man. The truth is, the Mad King was the most responsible for her family’s fall from grace. Lastly, any time something went wrong, Dany always went into her “I’m the Unburnt and the Mother of Dragons” speech. Ok, that’s great, but what’s the fucking plan, Dany? *Sigh* She was just a poor ruler, fam.

In the end, I don’t know who should’ve ran Westeros. Ultimately, all of the characters had their faults. However, I just know that Daenerys would’ve been a bad leader, bruh. By and by, she’s been displaying ineptitude for the entire series, son. At the end of the day, her supporters just don’t want to admit it, man. That is all. LC out.

A Diehard Fan’s Thoughts On The Wu-Tang Documentary

So, anyone who knows me knows that I am a MASSIVE Wu-Tang Clan fan. I mean, I used to wear Clarks Wallabees because of Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. Hell, I’m wearing a damn Cuban Link chain as I write this, son. In any case, it goes without saying that I was HYPED to watch Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men, Showtime‘s new documentary. All in all, as much as I enjoyed the film, I also completely understand why the group fractured, man.

Ok, for those who haven’t watched it yet, I’m going to be throwing out mad spoilers, fam. Anyway, the fact of the matter is, business broke up the squad, bruh. Now, when I say “business,” it’s really the lack of business understanding, son. Like, over the years, various members thought RZA and his brother Divine were taking money from them. Look, maybe the were. However, to me, I thought the brothers were engaged in regular business practices, man.

For example, there’s a scene in the fourth episode where Ghostface is arguing with Divine about commission. In Ghost’s mind, if Divine brings him a $1 million deal, Ghost should get all of the money. Divine’s stance is that he would take $200,000 as a finder’s fee. Shit, I’m with Divine, fam. Look, if Divine is out there securing the bag, why would he not get a portion? Real talk, sport agents get commission and lawyers get pieces of settlements. The way I see it, it’s only right, bruh.

As another example, in the third episode of the doc, we see a rift between RZA and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. So, when ODB got out of prison, he didn’t understand why the other members were let out of their deal with Wu-Tang Productions, but RZA and Divine were reluctant to let ODB go. Now, in RZA’s mind, he thought he had the perfect plan to resurrect Dirty’s career. All I can say is, given the immaculate work that RZA did in the beginning, I wouldn’t bet against him, son. Instead, Dirty decided to go with Roc-A-Fella Records and they did absolutely nothing with him, man. With all of that being said, was the move worth it, fam?

Now, to be fair, the group members were deadass right about that Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album. Frankly, they got duped into making a project by Cilvaringz and RZA. To make matters worse, it wholly sucks that Martin Shkreli ended up with the record, bruh. The fact is, that chapter was a stain on the Wu name, son. All I know is, that album should’ve never happened, son.

Besides that, the fact remains that the group was at its apex when RZA made the beats and Divine ran the business. Hell, can anyone argue with Wu-Tang’s run from 1993 to 1997? Keeping it a buck, that period was the greatest shit in the world to me. Sadly, “homie business” got in the way of a conglomerate, man. On the real, a lack of business knowledge got in the way of a seemingly unstoppable force. Regardless, I’m just happy that they’re back together and cooking up, fam. Shit, I lost my mind while watching them perform at the A3C Festival last year. For me, a group like that should never break up, bruh.

In the end, I recommend this documentary to everyone. Truthfully, I thought the episodes could be disjointed at times, but there was so much behind the scenes footage that I let my gripes go, son. Ultimately, shout-out to Mass Appeal, man. By and by, any documentary that shows me the recording process of “C.R.E.A.M.” is good in my book, fam. At the end of the day, Wu-Tang is for the children, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Ayesha Curry Can’t Have It Both Ways

So, let me keep it real, son. I’m going to try my best to utilize my analytical side and not my “I’m a husband who’d want to drop kick somebody” side. Frankly, I’m not here to bash Ayesha Curry, man. On the real, I’m just trying to make sense of her nonsensical-ness, fam. All in all, she can’t want attention from men AND get mad at the attention that Steph Curry gets.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mrs. Curry sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris for an episode of Red Table Talk. Now, although a variety of topics were touched on during the discussion, a few tidbits caught people’s attention. First, Curry talked about how she hates the reactions that Steph gets from women. I mean, that’s completely understandable, bruh. Like, what spouse wants to see their significant other ogled by outsiders?

Now, if that’s where the discussion ended, then all would be well, son. Instead, Curry divulged a little bit more information. To be more specific, she chose to illuminate some of her own insecurities. In any case, she stated that she wishes she got more “male attention.” Apparently, while Steph has been dodging all of these unwanted eyes, Ayesha wishes more men looked at her in that way. In fact, due to the lack of gazing stares, she began to wonder if something was wrong with her.

Look, I’m not an idiot, man. Real talk, everyone likes to know that people find them attractive. However, that shit needs to stop mattering when you’re fucking married. On top of that, she can’t get mad at women for wanting Steph when she desires the same type of interest. Furthermore, I need some of the ladies out there to stop caping for her, fam. Hell, if someone’s husband told them “damn, I wish these ladies looked my way more,” they’d be fucking pissed, bruh. All I know is, Steph and Ayesha need to be enough for Steph and Ayesha.

In the end, Ayesha needs to let that shit go, son. Ultimately, as long as she has Steph and Steph has her, outside influences shouldn’t matter, man. In addition, this is the last thing homie needs right now, fam. By and by, he’s having a rough time in the playoffs, bruh. Shit, I wouldn’t put it past an opponent to throw this in his face on the court, folks. At the end of the day, we need to be careful what we wish for, brethren. She might get that attention she wants and fuck up her marriage. Knock it off, Ayesha. That is all. LC out.

Ay, Joe Budden, Cyn Santana Bounced, Bruh

So, let me be real, son. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I know what’s going on with Joe Budden and Cyn Santana. All I can say is, Budden seems to be a little confused about his relationship status. Well, I’d like to clear it up for him. *Ahem* She bounced, bruh. Look, anytime a woman moves all of her shit out of the crib, she’s probably serious, man.

Ok, for those who missed it, the engagement between Budden and Santana is seemingly off. Now, there were rumors circulating around that the two were having pre-marital issues. But, I generally don’t pay attention to what gossip blogs have to say. Furthermore, I don’t pay attention to a woman’s shady comments on social media. Shit, I’ve been in a situation where a chick was throwing darts at me online and we were still very much together. In any case, my ears didn’t perk up until Budden responded to the rumors at a live episode of The Joe Budden Podcast.

Now, while speaking to his audience, Budden asked if a relationship can be over if neither person verbally said it was over. In addition, he stated that he hasn’t talked to Santana in weeks and that she moved her shit out. Side note, uh, don’t they have a kid together? So, wouldn’t her moving out also include their son? Yeah, I’m going to need Budden to move with a greater sense of urgency, fam. In any case, while Budden was pontificating about a wordless breakup, Santana was telling people on Twitter than actions speak louder than words.

Look, let me be perfectly clear here, bruh. If Santana left the crib, took their son AND stopped speaking to him, then yeah, that’s a breakup, son. Now, does that mean they can’t work it out? Of course not. However, if Budden is missing all of these telltale signs, then he might have no hope of getting his woman back, man. Keeping it a buck, I have no idea what they’re beefing about. But, he can’t be walking around this clueless, fam. Ay, Joey, go call her, brethren.

In the end, relationships can be a motherfucker, son. Hell, I’ve been in a relationship with the same woman for eleven years now, man. With that being said, I’m an expert in the vernacular of “when a woman’s fed up.” Ultimately, Budden needs to wake the fuck up if he wants to save his union. That is all. LC out.

RIP John Singleton

So, I won’t lie, son. I don’t have much to say today, man. On the real, this shit is just trash, fam. All I can say is, Rest In Peace to John Singleton, bruh. Frankly, it’s a damn shame that we lost someone who’s done so much for the culture. All in all, his legacy is solidified and we need to keep his art at the forefront.

Ok, for those who missed it, things went downhill very quickly, son. First, on April 17, it was reported that Singleton had a stroke. Apparently, after returning from Costa Rica, he experienced weakness in his legs. Next, on April 25, news spread that Singleton slipped into a coma. Now, five days later, the iconic director has passed away.

Keeping it a buck, Singleton was way too young, man. I mean, 51 is not the time that people should be dying, fam. Especially not when they’re still contributing to the zeitgeist, bruh. Shit, he was the brain behind Snowfall, one of my current favorite television shows. That’s not to mention Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice, Higher Learning, Baby Boy and all of the other films that showed his genius. Side note, I really wish he actually directed All Eyez on Me. Listen, that movie was a shit show and Tupac Shakur deserved better, son. In any case, I’m just glad that we’re still able to enjoy the work he put in, man.

In the end, RIP to a great one. Ultimately, we all need to get our health checked, fam. By and by, the idea of dying at 51 is shocking, bruh. At the end of the day, health is wealth and we all need to make sure we’re doing our part. Now, excuse me while I watch reruns of Snowfall and yell at Franklin Saint for not handling his own wet work. That is all. LC out.

Stop Giving Laura Ingraham Attention

So, before I begin, let me say that I know what some people might be thinking. Yeah, I’m aware that writing this post is a bit hypocritical, given the title. However, today’s thoughts aren’t really about Laura Ingraham. In reality, they’re about how we all react to Laura Ingraham. Keeping it a buck, we need to stop giving her attention, son. All in all, why the fuck do we care about what she says, man?

Ok, for those who missed it, Laura Ingraham went into her Laura Ingraham bag. Now, while addressing Nipsey Hussle’s funeral at the Staples Center, she decided to laugh and take swipes at the deceased rapper. I mean, despite all of the things that Hussle did for his community, Ingraham simply labeled him as an artist who “released a song called ‘FDT,” F Donald Trump.” From there, her and Raymond Arroyo showed a picture of YG, not Nip, and laughed about the song’s chorus. All I can say is, it was incredibly distasteful, fam.

But, with all of that being said, why is anyone surprised, bruh? Like, this is the same woman who told LeBron James to “shut up and dribble.” This is the same woman who publicly ridiculed David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting. Frankly, she’s given us AMPLE examples that she’s a piece of shit, son. The truth is, the more we react to her tomfoolery, the more she’s going to feel emboldened, man. Real talk, she’s no different than Tomi Lahren, fam. The way I see it, we need to stop giving these vapid losers notoriety, folks. Their opinions truly mean nothing, brethren.

In the end, Ingraham is going to Ingraham, son. Ultimately, when she gets on her bullshit, we need to look the other way, man. By and by, if a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it, does it make a sound? Who the fuck cares, fam? Let that tree “tree” by itself, bruh. At the end of the day, our anger is what these idiots feed off of, people. They don’t deserve any of our peace, B. That is all. LC out.

Jussie Smollett: The Finesse God

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m probably going to piss off a number of my fellow minorities with this post. However, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t keep it a buck, man. With that being said, get Jussie Smollett the fuck outta here, fam! I mean, seriously, folks really believe he’s innocent? Do people actually read, bruh? Listen, the charges against him were dropped because he made a deal with the prosecutor. It’s very simple, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, Smollett played his “get out of jail free” card. Now, as of yesterday, the 16 felony charges against him were dismissed. Because of this, folks all over social media are proclaiming that Smollett was vindicated and cleared of any wrongdoing. Unfortunately, that’s not how the legal system works, son. In reality, Smollett was given a plea deal, man. In exchange for community service and forfeiting his $10,000 bond, Kim Foxx, the State Attorney, let Smollett skate. The truth is, her office still believes he lied. But, they’re also satisfied with keeping his money. On the real, that’s very different than innocence, fam.

Now, before anyone accuses me of hating on Smollett, remember that I was on his side at first. Frankly, that all changed when I realized his story was bullshit, bruh. Honestly, I wanted this story to be real because I didn’t want to grapple with the idea that someone would do something so cotdamn dumb, son. In any case, Smollett’s story is still nonsense and a plea bargain won’t make me change my mind, man.

In the end, folks can hate me if they want to. However, I know a plea deal when I see one, fam. Shit, I’m married to a lawyer, people. Ultimately, Smollett finessed Chicago out of any real punishment, bruh. By and by, if I ever get into any real trouble, I want his legal team on deck, son. At the end of the day, they’re the real MVP’s here. That is all. LC out.
