Drake Owes Shiggy Some Money

So, Drake‘s “In My Feelings” is number-six on the Billboard Hot 100, huh? Look, Drake breaks records everyday, so I’m not going to pretend like that song wouldn’t have been a smash, son. However, homie DEFINITELY owes Shoker, better known as Shiggy from The Shiggy Show, some bread, man. On the real, Shiggy almost single-handedly made that track hotter with his #DoTheShiggy movement. All I know is, this #InMyFeelingsChallenge started an entire wave, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it… wait, nah, bruh. At this point, I’m pretty sure EVERYONE on social media has seen some variation of this challenge, son. In any case, about a week and a half ago, Shiggy started a dance craze on his Instagram page. Basically, a simple dance routine inspired a whole heap of celebrities to join in on the fun. As of right now, I can’t even count the number of people who have followed the trend, man. From Odell Beckham Jr. to Ciara to Drake himself, damn near everybody has embraced Shiggy’s moves, fam.

Listen, all I’m saying is, Shiggy definitely gave Drake a boost, bruh. I mean, the song probably would have been a hit in the long-run. However, its popularity absolutely skyrocketed as a result of this viral movement, son. With that being said, Drake owes Shiggy something, man. Shit, at the bare minimum, Drake should put him in the video, fam. Hell, based on the fact that Drake just did the dance at Wireless Festival in London, we all know he’s aware of Shiggy’s fingerprints, folks. All in all, Shiggy deserves SOME type of recognition, people.

In the end, shout-out to Shiggy for going viral, son. Ultimately, I need all of my New York brethren to win, man. By and by, I’m still not the biggest fan of the song, but I respect the movement, fam. Shit, I respect the fact that social media can be this powerful, bruh. At the end of the day, folks can become a phenomenon from an app, people. I mean, it’s fucking crazy, folks. That is all. LC out.

Give Daniel Cormier Some Respect!

Man, why do people hate Daniel Cormier so much? I mean, despite being a seemingly positive dude, he constantly gets shitted on by fans, son. Ok, look, I’m as big a Jon Jones apologist as anyone, but that doesn’t take away from what Cormier has accomplished, fam. Listen, from his Strikeforce days to his run in the UFC, Cormier has damn near done it all, bruh. All in all, after beating Stipe Miocic for the Heavyweight title, it’s time to put some respek on Cormier’s name, folks. Word to Birdman.

Now, before I continue, let’s get the obvious out of the way, son. Ok, yes, Cormier lost to Jones twice. With that being said, I understand why some people have a hard time accepting Cormier as the Light Heavyweight champion. But, if Jones wasn’t such a fucktard, he wouldn’t have lost his title in the first place, man. Shit, after his first fight with Cormier, he lost the belt for hitting a pregnant woman with his car. Next, after his second fight with Cormier, he lost the belt for testing dirty for turinabol. On the real, no one should feel sorry for Jones, fam. Frankly, he squandered his career because of his continuous lack of judgement, bruh.

Anyway, when it comes to Cormier, he’s achieved damn near everything in MMA, son. Hell, before making his mark in the UFC, he was the Strikeforce Heavyweight champ. From there, he went down to Light Heavyweight so he didn’t get in the way of his teammate, Cain Velasquez. Real talk, outside of his questionable losses to Jones, Cormier is undefeated, man. Side note, I now call Jones’s victories “questionable” because he’s pissed hot twice, fam. Keeping it a buck, Jones hasn’t had a good run since USADA took over the drug testing, bruh. All I can say is, it makes me wonder about all of his other wins now. *Sigh* That’s just so damn disappointing, folks.

In the end, we all need to give Cormier his just due, son. Ultimately, we can put an asterisk next to his Light Heavyweight crown, but we can’t do the same with his Heavyweight title, man. By and by, he knocked the FUCK outta Miocic, fam! At the end of the day, Miocic is a legend in his own right, bruh. He holds the record for the most consecutive Heavyweight title defenses and Cormier put him down. All I know is, that’s the mark of a man who deserves his respect, people. That is all. LC out.

I Un-Retired & Then Re-Retired From Basketball

So, does anyone know what it’s like to run in slow motion? Like, no camera tricks or movie trickery? Well, that’s exactly what I was doing yesterday, son. *Sigh* Who the fuck told me that I could still play basketball, man? On the real, my entire body has committed treason and mutiny against me, fam. All I know is, two hours after I un-retired from basketball, I hung my jersey back up in the rafters, bruh. Frankly, my run is over, folks. Keeping it a buck, I just have to accept my washed-dom and move on, brethren.

Ok, let me be honest for a second, son. Now, literally EVERY injury I’ve ever had has come as a result of playing ball. Shit, I broke my left leg, tore my right knee cartilage, badly sprained both ankles AND dislocated by left pinky finger. However, my dumbass just kept on playing, man. Why? Because of an insane love of the game, fam. Hell, to put this in perspective, my love of basketball used to be neck-and-neck with my love of music, bruh. Yeah, it was THAT real, people.

Anyway, after the birth of my second child, I kinda strayed away from the game, son. Not because I lost any love, but because I just didn’t have the time, man. Moving on, in the last few weeks, I decided to get back in the game, fam. So, I laced up my kicks and hit the gym, bruh. Needless to say, my body HATES me today, brethren. Like, every time I take a step, I can hear my knees saying “what the fuck is wrong with you?!” Real talk, by the time I got home, my wife thought I got hit by a truck, folks. That’s how labored I was walking, people.

In the end, I’m legitimately in pain as I write this, son. Ultimately, the glory days are over, man. By and by, my jumper may still be good, but my basketball fitness is traaaaaaash, fam! At the end of the day, I’m going to just stick to boxing and lifting, bruh. All in all, I don’t need these type of shenanigans anymore, folks. So, RIP to my basketball career, brethren. It was great while it lasted. LC out.

What The F*ck, Boogie Cousins?!

Man, what the fuck is going on out here, son? Like, is competition an antiquated concept? I mean, what’s the point of watching the NBA if EVERY superstar just decides to play together? All I know is, free agency has officially jumped the shark, fam. Keeping it a buck, DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Golden State Warriors is one of the most ridiculous deals I’ve ever seen, bruh. All in all, I may need to bow out of watching league games, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Cousins just one-upped LeBron James in the “How To Break Social Media” game. Apparently, after not receiving any offers from other teams, because of his fucked up Achilles, Cousins decided to call the Warriors. From there, the two sides worked out a one-year deal that would bring Cousins to The Bay for $5.3 million. So, if we’re keeping count, the Warriors now have FIVE players who have been selected to an All-NBA Team. Shit, at this point, should these other teams even show up to play next season?

Look, here’s my issue with all of this, son. On the real, it seems as if players no longer want to compete against each other. Ok, Cousins did nothing wrong, according to the rules, but shit, what happened to rivalries? What happened to players going at one another, man? Hell, everyone just wants to stack the deck now and gang up on undermanned teams. Honestly, all of this shit is corny, fam. All I can say is, Cousins went from wanting to beat the shit out of Kevin Durant to joining his team. *Sigh* It’s fucking ridiculous, bruh!

Keeping it a buck, I blame LeBron and the Boston Celtics for all of this new age fuckery, son. Listen, this era began when Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen teamed up. Now, as the story goes, that Celtics team gave James headaches, which caused him to join the Miami Heat with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. From there, the floodgates were opened, man. Years later, Durant joins the Warriors and now this Boogie shit. Frankly, these free agency deals are nothing more than the culmination of an issue that’s been brewing for almost a decade, fam.

In the end, fuuuuuuuuuck, bruh! *Sigh* How can I even watch basketball next season, son? Ultimately, we KNOW how it’s all going to end, man. By and by, the Warriors were going to win another title without Cousins. So, it’s a foregone conclusion that they’re going to three-peat, fam. At the end of the day, let me get a contract too, Warriors. Look, the cartilage in my right knee is trash, but my jumper is still pure, folks. That is all. LC out.

Don’t Tell Me You’re A Lakers Fan Now

So, he really did it, huh? LeBron James really signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, huh? Shit, after all of the theories and all of the speculation, he really moved to the Western Conference, huh? All in all, my least favorite part of being a basketball aficionado is about to go into overdrive, son: dealing with bandwagon fans. All I know is, I don’t want to hear ANY of these new motherfuckers try to convince me that they’re Lakers fans now, man.

Look, I may be wrong, but I feel like James is responsible for this new era of fandom. Like, instead of being fans of teams, people have become fans of players. Because of this, whatever team their favorite player is on, that’s the team these people root for. Hell, in James’s case, I’ve watched folks be Cleveland Cavaliers fans, then Miami Heat fans and back to Cavs fans. Real talk, they don’t know ANYTHING about these teams other than the fact that James was on them. In any case, despite the reality that it’ll irritate the SHIT out of me, I’m already preparing myself for these brand new Lakers “fans.”

In the end, the next NBA season is about to be WILD, fam! Ultimately, it looks like I’ll finally get my wish of seeing new teams in the Finals, bruh. All I can say is, James’s run of consecutive Finals appearances is over, son. I mean, there’s NO WAY he’s getting past the Golden State Warriors, man. Seriously, he has NO chance in the 9 Circles of Hell, fam.

As of right now, I’m picking Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and the Warriors to face Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics in the Finals. By and by, we’ll see how this Lakers experiment will work for James. The way I see it, he’s waiting for Kawhi Leonard to join him next year. For now, he’ll just have to put up with the shenanigans of Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma. That is all. LC out.

Is ‘8 Out of 10’ Supposed To Be A Response?

Nah, son. I can’t let this shit rock, man. I mean, is this what battling has come to, fam? A rapper ducking DIRECT smoke and going back to subliminal dissing? Look, I’ve always acknowledged that I’m a Drake fan. But, I can’t fuck with how he’s handled this Pusha T situation, bruh. On the real, someone get “8 Out of 10” the fuck outta here, brethren! All in all, I can’t respect the jabs he’s throwing when the battle is already waaaay past that.

Ok, as I’m sure everyone knows, Drake just dropped his Scorpion album today. Now, for those who don’t know, the record is a double album. Basically, the “A Side” is more Rap-influenced, while the “B Side” is more R&B-influenced. Side note, am I the only one who noticed that Big K.R.I.T. already treads similar water with his 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time album? Yeah, Krizzle doesn’t have a straight R&B side, but he definitely breaks up the harder songs from the more melodic songs.

Anyway, on my first listen to Scorpion, I came across a song called “8 Out of 10.” In it, Drake is definitely throwing shots at a couple of people. Now, based on some of the bars, I can tell that he’s trying to get back at Pusha. Shit, when Drake says “the only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin’ to,” he’s definitely talking to Pusha. When he says “Max said they only blessed when they attached to you,” he’s definitely talking about Pusha. Here’s the thing, son: these jabs ain’t good enough now, man!

Look, here’s why I don’t like how Drake has approached this beef. Real talk, if he ignored Pusha from the jump, then all of this might have been acceptable. However, Drake jumped in the ring with him, fam. Keeping it a buck, when Drake put out “Duppy Freestyle,” he was basically saying that he wanted all of the smoke, bruh. So, if that’s the case, he can’t go back into the shadows when shit gets real, son. Hell, when “The Story of Adidon” dropped, there was radio silence from Drake. Like, instead of a diss track, J. Prince was going around copping pleas for Drake and Drake himself addressed the blackface issue.

With all of that being, I can’t accept these subliminal disses now. If the beef is supposed to be over, like J. Prince said, then let it go, man. All I know is, Drake can’t engage with Pusha, duck the heat and THEN throw subtle shots after that. All I can say is, that’s not the Hip-Hop I want to see, fam. Either it’s beef or it’s not, bruh. There is no in-between, folks.

In the end, I’m still digesting this Scorpion album, son. I mean, it’s 25 fucking songs, man! Ultimately, with my schedule, it’s going to take me forever to get through this shit, fam. By and by, I’m still a Drake fan, bruh. But, I just don’t like the way he handled this shit, people. At the end of the day, none of this shit is going to matter to the DrakeHive. Look, homie can do no wrong in their eyes, brethren. It just is what it is. LC out.

Put Some Respek On Dame Dash’s Name

Man, I fucks with Damon Dash. Shit, I know that people like to judge him for his falling out with Jay-Z. However, Dash is a legend and should be treated as such, son. In any case, it seems like Lee Daniels missed that memo, fam. Hell, not only did Dash run up on Daniels for not repaying a $2 million loan, but he also filed a lawsuit over the missing money. All in all, Dash hit Daniels with that “run me my check” type of energy.

Ok, for those who missed it, this beef has been brewing for quite some time. Now, according to Dash, he lent Daniels money to fund his movie career. Based on Dash’s story, he gave Daniels the bread needed to create a Richard Pryor biopic, which never saw the light of day. In addition, Dash was supposed to receive five percent of the backend profits from the film. Needless to say, none of that transpired and Dash is PISSED!

Real talk, I can completely understand why Dash is heated, bruh. I mean, look at all of the success that Daniels has had, son. Listen, whether we’re discussing Precious, The Butler or Empire, Daniels has had an amazing run in the industry, man. So, why won’t he just pay Dash his money, fam? Honestly, I feel like people front on Dash because of his failed relationship with Hov and ousting from Roc-A-Fella Records. Keeping it a buck, all of this shit feels like a “kick a dude while he seems to be down” kind of vibe.

Listen, folks need to applaud Dash for his accomplishments, bruh. Keeping it a buck, he’s the one who believed in Hov from the jump. He’s the one who wanted to start Roc-A-Fella after all of the major labels turned Jay down. He’s the one who brought Kareem “Biggs” Burke in to help fund their independent endeavor. He’s the one who actually believed in, and signed, a young Kanye West. Side note, we ALL know about West’s current run of fuckery. But, that doesn’t negate his past work. Anyway, Dash deserves more than the shade that people constantly give him, folks.

In the end, Daniels needs to pay Dash back, son. Ultimately, Dame isn’t going to let this shit go, man. Either way, it makes for amazing entertainment, fam. By and by, Daniels and everyone else need to put some respek on Dash’s name, bruh. Word to Birdman. LC out.
