Drake Is Right About The Grammys

So, I won’t lie, son. As an aspiring musician, I would love to win a Grammy one day. On the real, I’m not going to pretend like I wouldn’t want that gold trophy on my mantle, man. However, I’m not one of those artists who believes that my art would be defined by a metal gramophone. With that being said, I 1000% agree with Drake’s acceptance speech. Real talk, as long as artists have dedicated fans, they’ve already won, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Drake actually showed up to the Grammy Awards last night. Anyway, his song “God’s Plan” ended up winning the award for Best Rap Song. Now, when Drake went up onstage to get his trophy, he kept it super funky with everyone watching. Essentially, he told all of the artists that awards like this don’t define them. According to Aubrey, as long as musicians have fans willing to support their songs, they don’t need validation from antiquated institutions. All I know is, he’s absolutely right, bruh.

Listen, the Grammys have notoriously gotten shit wrong when it comes to Hip-Hop and R&B, son. I mean, Herbie Hancock is a damn legend, but there’s no way his album was better than Kanye West’s Graduation, man. There’s no way that Taylor Swift’s 1989 was better than Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. Shit, even Adele knew that 25 wasn’t better than Beyoncé’s Lemonade, fam. She basically said as much during her acceptance speech, bruh. The point is, artists, especially Black artists, need to realize that these awards don’t make or break them. All in all, they’re winners regardless, brethren.

In the end, the Grammys ain’t low for cutting Drake’s speech short, son. Yeah, the committee tried to say they thought he was finished, but we don’t believe that, man. Ultimately, Drake used his platform to say some real shit and the powers that be didn’t like it, fam. By and by, he’s still the biggest artist in the world and there’s nothing they can do about it, bruh. At the end of the day, folks ain’t gonna stop bumping Drake because the Grammys are mad at him, people. It is what it is. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I’m going to try my best to leave Jennifer Lopez alone, son. All I can say is, I don’t know what Motown she ever watched, man. The fact is, I wasn’t here for her “Jenny From The Block” remix of Berry Gordy’s brainchild, fam. And I’m a Bronx dude saying that, bruh. *Sigh* Good day.

Will Anybody Learn From 6ix9ine’s Situation?

So, here we are, son? After all of the trolling and nonstop shenanigans, the shit has finally hit the fan, man. Now, let me be clear, fam. I would never wish this situation on anybody, bruh. Yeah, I’ve been critical of 6ix9ine in the past. All I can say is, I stand by everything I’ve said, brethren. However, there was no reason for his story to go so left, folks. All in all, 6ix9ine’s ordeal needs to be a wake-up call for the young ones out here. Frankly, street shit ain’t nothing to fuck with, people.

Ok, for those living under a rock, Daniel Hernandez, b.k.a. Tekashi 6ix9ine, is in a world of manure. Now, after being picked up by the Feds for all sorts of crimes, 6ix9ine decided to plead guilty. Moving on, in addition to copping to 9 felony charges, he’s also agreed to cooperate with authorities. Meaning, 6ix9ine is about to start telling on all of his Nine Trey brothers. Apparently, he’s already admitted to helping the crew shoot at people, rob people and move drugs.

Listen, I don’t want to seem preachy, but social media championed this nonsense, son. On the real, any time an OG tried to tell 6ix9ine to chill, they were called “haters” or “old” or whatever else, man. Any time someone advised him against his behavior, internet losers said he was “winning” because of his antics. Well, does this look like winning now? I mean, was all of the tomfoolery worth it? Shit, due to his potential cooperation, 6ix9ine might end up in the Witness Protection Program. So, tell me again how he’s “winning,” fam.

In the end, I have nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, I hope all of these young cats learn something from this. By and by, there are certain elements that aren’t for play play, son. The streets are definitely one of those elements, man. At the end of the day, I’m certain that 6ix9ine would do all of this differently, man. Sad part is, he’ll most likely never get the chance, fam. *Sigh* C’est la vie, brethren. C’est la vie. LC out.

I Am Finally Done With The New York Knicks

Good morning, everyone. My name is Lawrence Charles and I’m a lifelong New York Knicks fan. Moving on, I was there when John Starks went 2-18 from the field in Game 7 of the 1994 NBA Finals against the Houston Rockets. I was there when Patrick Ewing missed a game-tying finger roll in Game 7 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Indiana Pacers. I was there when the organization traded away half of the Eastern Seaboard to sign Carmelo Anthony. However, I’ve had enough, son. *Sigh* After decades of nonstop tomfoolery, I’ve finally had enough, man.

Ok, for those who missed it, the Knicks decided to trade Kristaps Porzingis, our most promising player, to Luka Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks. Now, along with Porzingis, the team has also given away Trey Burke, Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. All this in exchange for Wesley Matthews, Dennis Smith Jr., DeAndre Jordan and two future first-round picks. Apparently, Porzingis, who’s also coming off of injury, asked to be traded because he wasn’t down with the direction of the organization. Frankly, I don’t blame him, fam.

Listen, the Knicks have been arguably (not arguably) the worst organization in professional sports. I mean, we have a long, long, LONG history of making terrible fucking decisions, bruh. On the real, why would Porzingis trust the team’s direction, son? Seriously, when have we showcased ANY intelligence when it comes to building a competent squad? Keeping it a buck, I already know we’re going to fuck up those future first-round picks, man. Shit, we’re absolutely atrocious when it comes to selecting decent players, fam.

To make matters worse, Knicks management has almost certainly shot us in the foot for free agency, bruh. Like, why would Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving come here if we don’t have Porzingis, son? Real talk, he was one of our biggest draws, man. Hell, he was one of the only bright spots on a team that has a SUPER checkered past, fam. All I know is, I want to break things and hit people, brethren. All jokes aside, I can’t take any more of this sustained abuse, folks.

In the end, AHHHHHHHHHHH! I just… I just can’t do this any longer, son. Ultimately, I don’t know who I’m going to root for, but it can’t be the Knicks, man. By and by, James Dolan doesn’t care about us, fam. At the end of the day, as long as people show up to Madison Square Garden, he isn’t concerned with the team’s pedigree, bruh. All I can say is, I’m finally bowing out, people. No mas. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck Did They Do To Jussie Smollett?!

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I’m blown away right now, man. Like, what year are we in, fam? Seriously, what fucking year is it, bruh? Keeping it a buck, I don’t want to hear anything about progress, people. Shit, every time we think we’re moving ahead as a country, some fuckery occurs to bring us all back down. All I know is, the attack on Jussie Smollett was absolutely unconscionable. Frankly, I’m having a hard time putting my frustration into words, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Smollett was attacked in Chicago on Tuesday morning. According to the story, while walking out of a Subway restaurant at 2 AM, two dudes rolled up on him and said “aren’t you that faggot Empire nigger?” From there, the two ski-masked men hit Smollett in the face, injured his rib, put a rope around his neck and poured an “unknown chemical substance” on him. After all of that, the men allegedly yelled “this is MAGA country” before leaving the scene.

Now, I don’t even know where to start, son. I mean, do I start at the “faggot” part? Do I start at the “nigger” part? Or, should I start at the “MAGA country” part? Regardless, this whole scenario appears to be a clusterfuck of hate, man. Not to mention, a letter threatening Smollett was sent to Fox studios just a week prior to this incident. Meaning, he may have been targeted this entire time, fam.

Listen, I need Donald Trump supporters to hear me clear. As much as the MAGA brigade likes to say they’re not racist or xenophobic, there are a number of people who commit atrocities in their name. Look, if folks want all Muslims to atone for the actions of the radical few, why does MAGA nation think they’re exempt? It’s not a coincidence that losers preach hate in their name. It’s not a coincidence that David Duke identifies with the message. All in all, I don’t want to hear any of that “I don’t agree with everything Trump says” shit. The way I see it, it’s a package deal, bruh. People can’t piecemeal what they want and ignore all of the other tomfoolery that comes with it, son.

In the end, I’m wishing the best for Jussie Smollett. Ultimately, I hope they catch the motherfuckers who did this bullshit to him, man. By and by, it’s frightening that crimes like this are still occurring in 2019. At the end of the day, it’s dangerous for so many different groups of people, fam. *Sigh* This is America. Don’t catch you slipping up. LC out.

Fraud, As Told By Ja Rule

Oh my god, this is terrible. Could somebody please find Ja Rule, get ahold of this motherfucker, so I can make sense of all this? Where is Ja?

So, as usual, Dave Chappelle said it all, son. All I know is, I laughed way harder than I should’ve while watching that Fyre documentary on Netflix. Real talk, the Fyre Festival was one of the biggest scams I’ve ever seen, man. Now, before watching this doc, I already knew that a ton of fuckery went down. However, I was thoroughly baffled to see how much nonsense Ja and Billy McFarland tried to get away with. Furthermore, I was confused about how people fell for this shit. All in all, this entire saga was a glorious train wreck, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, the failed Fyre Festival is back in the news. As of right now, there are two documentaries making their rounds on streaming services. First, there’s the aforementioned Fyre doc on Netflix. In addition, there’s the Fyre Fraud doc on Hulu. Keeping it a buck, I can only speak on the Netflix joint since I don’t have Hulu. Anyway, while watching the footage with my wife, I was blown away by this whole operation, bruh. I mean, this idea was doomed from the start, son. Frankly, I have no idea why anyone went along with this bullshit, man.

Now, where do I even begin, fam? Look, there was NO way McFarland and company could pull any of their promises off, bruh. Shit, McFarland lied to people about EVERYTHING. Like, he had no island, no luxury lodging, no headlining acts and no one to tell him to chill. But, he always found a way to get folks to invest more of their money, son. Hell, all it took was a co-sign from Ja, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and Chanel Iman. From there, people were ready to commit, man. All I know is, there was never a time where this festival would even remotely work, brethren.

Keeping it a buck, I have a hard time feeling sorry for people, son. Ok, yes, I feel terrible for the Bahamian folks who were taken advantage of. Side note, shout-out to the GoFundMe campaign that raised close to $200,000 for MaryAnn Rolle. After taking a HUGE loss for trying to feed people during the festival, it appears that she’s been made whole again. In any case, that’s where my sympathy stops, man. Seriously, anyone who fell for the “villa tent” mirage is an idiot, fam. Like, I saw someone write “will my tent have an outlet” in an email to McFarland. No, dumbass! Folks should’ve been happy with ham sandwiches and FEMA tents. That’s all McFarland had for them, bruh.

In the end, Ja Rule needs to be honest, son. Ultimately, false advertising is the same as fraud, man. By and by, Billy McFarland and Ja finessed folks with Joanne The Scammer-like precision, fam. At the end of the day, I have no clue how Ja skated, bruh. I mean, he got hit with a class action lawsuit, but he’s not facing prison time like McFarland. *Sigh* At least I can still hold onto Ja’s first three albums, folks. He’s been up to nonstop tomfoolery ever since. That is all. LC out.

This Jasmine Eiland Video Is Unbelievable

So, I won’t lie, son. It’s very rare that I’m at a loss for words, man. But, that’s how I feel right now. I mean, that Jasmine Eiland video is NUTS, fam! Like, absolutely nuts, bruh. Real talk, I’m upset that I even watched the clip, folks. All I know is, heads need to roll for what happened to that young lady. Frankly, I have no idea how some shit like this could even transpire, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, a disturbing video has been making its rounds on social media. Now, while clubbing at Opera Atlanta, Eiland was on Facebook Live. At first, she appeared to be chopping it up with some random dude. In addition, she looked very intoxicated. Anyway, at some point, the guy positioned himself behind her. From there… look, I’m sure everyone can figure out where I’m going with this, son. All I can say is, Eiland can be heard saying “please help me” and “stop” MULTIPLE times.

Now, I don’t even know where to begin, man. First, is that dude fucking serious, fam?! Like, he was really that brazen in the middle of a damn nightclub? Second, why didn’t ANYONE help that woman?! Shit, what part of the game is letting an assault go down in the open, bruh? Third, what the hell is wrong with everyone blaming Eiland?! Listen, I don’t care about how she was dressed or how much she had to drink. Hell, I don’t even care if she was giving that dude vibes before. There’s literally NO excuse for what he appeared to do to her in that club, son!

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, man. Ultimately, I’m thoroughly disturbed and disgusted, fam. By and by, I can’t believe this type of shit is really happening out here, bruh. Furthermore, I still can’t believe the lengths that people will go to blame the victim, son. At the end of the day, everyone sucks. All in all, I just hope Eiland’s attacker is put under the jail, brethren. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I want everybody to take my advice and stay away from that video. On the real, it made me sick to my stomach, son. So, don’t do it, people. You’re welcome.

Future Needs To Stop Talking About Ciara

So, it’s no secret that I’m a Future fan, son. I mean, on several occasions, I’ve called myself the Treasurer of the FutureHive. However, I’ve got to keep it a buck, man. On the real, Future needs to stop talking about Ciara and Russell Wilson. I mean, at this point, it looks like a pathetic obsession, fam. The fact of the matter is, Ciara is happily married, bruh. With that being said, if it ain’t about Baby Future, Hndrxx needs to leave that family alone, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, Future had some choice words for Ciara and Wilson. During Big Bank Black’s interview on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Future basically called Wilson a puppet. Shit, he said that Wilson does whatever Ciara tells him and that he needs to check his wife. Apparently, Future thinks that Wilson should’ve instructed Ciara to never mention his name. The problem is, if Ciara speaks, it’s usually to respond to some fuckity-fuck shit that Future said about her in the press. Frankly, Future is the one who keeps this back-and-forth going, son.

Look, let’s do the math, man. Right now, we’re in 2019. Ciara’s been married to Wilson since 2016. Her and Future ended their union in 2014. So, why the fuck is Future still talking about this woman, fam? Like, homie, she’s gone. She’s gone, bruh. Real talk, she’s busy raising a whole ‘nother child and wearing Seattle Seahawks jerseys. On top of that, Baby Future is everywhere around town with his stepfather, son. Side note, doesn’t Future have a damn newborn with Joie Chavis? Shouldn’t he be more concerned about the kid? Anyway, Future needs to get his priorities straight, folks. Like I said in the beginning, if it ain’t about his mutual child with Ciara, then leave it the fuck alone, dude.

In the end, I’m still going to vibe out to Future’s music, son. Side note, I’m not sold on this The Wizrd album yet, but we’ll see, man. In any case, I have to call a spade a spade, fam. Ultimately, the way he harps on Ciara is real simpish, bruh. By and by, he’s questioning Wilson’s manhood, but Future’s the one looking like a sucker right now, people. At the end of the day, just give me an Autotune melody and an 808, guy. Leave all of the other clown shit alone. That is all. LC out.
