Thanks For Supporting My Music, Pt. 2

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, a lot has transpired since I first thanked everyone for supporting my music, man. Shit, at this point last year, I was getting ready to release my The Charlemagne Renaissance album on streaming services. As of today, I now have two projects out here on these streets: the aforementioned The Charlemagne Renaissance and The Charlemagne Overture. All in all, none of this would be possible if the good people out there didn’t help a brother out, fam.

In any case, I don’t have much else to say, bruh. All I know is, I have a lot more shit on the horizon, son. First, I’m about to start getting into my music video bag. I mean, out of the 20 records I dropped this year, a few of them need that visual treatment, man. Second, I’m also planning on getting my website and mailing list up and running. Lastly, the shows will continue to pop off, fam. So, be on the lookout for all of the shit that I’m doing in 2020, brethren.

In the end, since Thanksgiving just passed, I felt like it was only right to show my gratitude, son. Ultimately, there are millions of people out here doing music. By and by, folks aren’t obligated to support me, man. With that being said, keep streaming the projects, keep coming to the shows and keep dropping the lines of encouragement. As an independent artist, it goes a long way, fam. It really does. That is all. LC out.

New LC EP Is Out Now!

So, here we go again, son. Roughly six months after I dropped my album, The Charlemagne Renaissance, I’m back with more music, man. The truth is, I had more songs in the stash and I couldn’t wait to put them out. With that being said, I’d like everybody to go listen to my new EP, The Charlemagne Overture.

Ok, before we get to the songs, let me give folks a little backstory. Now, the original goal was to record an entirely new album. Ideally, I wanted to make a 12-song project. Yeah, I know my last record was 16 tracks, but that was more of a compilation, fam. Essentially, I wanted to put all of my previously-released joints on one cohesive project. In any case, with that out of the way, I wanted to focus on making a real album.

Moving on, things began to change when I started performing again. Real talk, out of the four songs on this new EP, I started regularly performing three of them. Anyway, as a new and upcoming artist, I didn’t want people to wonder where my songs were. So, I packaged this small project together to make my whole discography available.

In the end, I’ve done enough rambling, bruh. The moral of the story is, I have a new EP out, brethren! By and by, let’s get these streams streaming, son! As before, the project can be found on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and any other streaming service on the planet Earth. At the end of the day, I appreciate everyone’s support, man! It’s all love! LC out.

P.S. Shout-out to my homegirl Jevon Roché for always hitting me with that fire artwork, fam. She’s the G.O.A.T., bruh. For real. Good day.

My Only Gripe With Nicki Minaj’s Interview With Joe Budden

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I was trying my hardest to avoid this Nicki Minaj and Joe Budden situation, man. I mean, we have two people who like to shout and talk over people, fam. The fact is, shenanigans were damn near inevitable with these two in a room, bruh. Moving on, I’m not here to debate the validity of their respective arguments. On the real, I’m only here to talk about how she disrespected Rory, Budden’s podcast co-host.

*Sigh* Where do I start, son? Ok, the tomfoolery began when Budden went to Nicki’s Queen Radio show on Apple Music. Now, I think it’s safe to say that Nicki didn’t appreciate a lot of the narratives that Budden started on his show, The Joe Budden Podcast. Namely, she didn’t like the idea that she wasn’t knowledgeable about the smoke Cardi B had for her on Migos‘ “Motorsport.” In her eyes, people like Budden perpetuate the idea that she’s always being catty with other women rappers. In addition, she hated the fact that he suggested she was on drugs.

In any case, during the show, she went “hamburger helper” on Budden, man. Like, he couldn’t get a word in edgewise, fam. Shit, she basically shouted at him until security removed him from the premises, bruh. Needless to say, after this debacle, the internet lost its shit, son. However, this isn’t the end of the story, folks. Now, despite getting cursed out, Budden still had Nicki on as a guest on his podcast. From there, they continued their conversation about her place in the music industry.

Now, with all of that being said, let me get to the crux of the matter, man. Look, Nicki believes there’s a “hate train” against her. She believes that she’s unfairly maligned and constantly under public attack. Side bar, I personally think that a lot of it is bullshit and that she has an inability to critique her own behavior. But, that’s another story for another time, fam. Anyway, Budden’s podcast went off of the rails when she turned her cannons on Rory. Frankly, homie didn’t deserve the heat that came his way.

Basically, Rory tried to say that Nicki shouldn’t put so much of her focus on what people say about her on social media. From there, she bugged the fuck out, bruh. Hell, she proceeded to yell at him for the next ten minutes and insinuate that he was vilifying her for defending herself. Next, she suggested that she was going to make up a false rumor about Rory, just so he knew what it was like to be “lied” on.

Son, Rory’s entire point was that the opinion of random people on the internet should not matter to a person of her stature. Like, who gives a fuck about the Twitter account of someone with an egg avatar, man? At no point did he say that she was wrong for sticking up for herself. His only point was that internet trolls shouldn’t be given any power, fam. Responses fuel these idiots. Keeping it a buck, their thoughts don’t fucking matter, brethren. But, instead of comprehending what he was trying to say, she decided to shout at the top of her lungs and refuse to let him speak. Yeah, really mature, Nicki.

In the end, that podcast hurt my ears, bruh. Ultimately, if folks aren’t trying to have a civilized conversation, then there’s no point, son. By and by, I hope Nicki finds peace, man. All I know is, she’s one of the biggest artists in the world and shouldn’t pay this much attention to negativity, fam. At the end of the day, the music is all that matters, bruh. That is all. LC out.

P.S. What’s really good with Mal, son? Listen, I’ve heard him say NUMEROUS times on the podcast that cyber bulling isn’t real, man. Well, where was that hot take for Nicki, fam? Shit, he was quiet as a church mouse while she was on the rampage, bruh. All I can say is, if cyber bulling isn’t real, then Nicki’s problems aren’t real, brethren. The truth is, he should’ve kept that same energy. Good day.

Conor McGregor Isn’t Retiring

So, I won’t lie, son. I haven’t blogged in a little while because I burned myself out, man. I mean, after all of the work that went into putting out an album, I felt drained, fam. Side note, everybody should go listen to my The Charlemagne Renaissance album right now. Like, right now, bruh! It’s on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and whatever streaming service the homies created in their basement. In any case, I’m back today to call Conor McGregor’s bluff. All in all, I don’t believe he’s retiring for one second, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, McGregor hit Twitter to announce his retirement from MMA. Apparently, thanks to all of that Floyd Mayweather and Proper No. 12 whiskey money, he doesn’t feel the need to fight again. Now, in theory, he’s right. Sh*t, during the course of his career, he’s sold countless PPV’s and has had countless highlights. For God’s sake, he’s responsible for 5 of the top 6 UFC PPV buys, son. Frankly, he couldn’t possibly become any bigger of a star, man. So, what’s left for him to do, fam?

With all of that being said, I’m still calling shenanigans, bruh. Listen, McGregor is a competitor, son. Ok, yes, he’s also a businessman, but he made it this far by being a warrior. The way I see it, he won’t call it a career until he fights both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nate Diaz again. Look, based on pride alone, I don’t see him riding off into the sunset knowing that he couldn’t beat Khabib. I’d bet money that McGregor thinks he can take him in a rematch. I mean, he’s wrong, but I guarantee he’s going to try again, man. On top of that, the series with Diaz is tied 1-1. McGregor knows that this rivalry needs a definitive winner, fam.

In the end, all will be answered, bruh. Ultimately, McGregor may have some people fooled, but I’m not one of them, son. By and by, give him like 6 months, man. He’ll find a reason to get back into that Octagon, fam. At the end of the day, I’ll still be there to watch it. All I know is, he’d have much better luck against Diaz than Khabib. Keeping it a buck, McGregor can’t beat that monster from Dagestan, people. It just is what it is, brethren. That is all. LC out.

My Album Is On Apple Music, Spotify & Tidal!

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m having a hard time keeping my composure right now, man. I mean, MY ALBUM IS OUT, FAM! That’s right, my album, The Charlemagne Renaissance, is officially on all streaming services. Meaning, if anybody goes to Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, etc., my album is ready to go, bruh. With that being said, I hope everyone takes a listen and gives me some feedback, folks.

Now, for those who remember, I was putting out a lot of music in 2017. Thanks to New Music Fridays, I was dropping a new song every two weeks. Anyway, all of the songs were just floating around SoundCloud. So, I decided to properly release them as an album, son. From there, Jevon Roché gave me some super dope artwork and Rick Torres mastered the project. Needless to say, I’m indebted to the both of them, man. Also, my guy Zeyi came through with the fire verse and blessed a song. All in all, I’m beyond hyped, fam!

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, I just hope that people will take the time to listen, son. By and by, I put a lot of work into this album and I hope folks enjoy it, man. In any case, to whoever is reading this, let me know what the best tracks on the project are. I’m always interested in hearing people’s opinions. Thank you! That is all. LC out.

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.

Thanks For Supporting My Music

So, since Thanksgiving is this week, instead of tripping on the historical fuckery of the Pilgrims, I’ve decided to talk about what I’m thankful for. With that being said, I want to say “thank you” to every family member and friend who has aided my musical journey. Over the last year, I’ve been back on the right path, and over the last two months, the pace has accelerated. All in all, I don’t take anyone’s support for granted, son.

Ok, as a lot of folks may know, since early 2017, I’ve been putting out new records. Now, from March to December, I’ve released a total of 16 songs as part of my New Music Fridays series. Fast forward to September of this year, I’ve returned to performing onstage. Since September 8th, I’ve had a total of five shows, including one at the legendary SOB’s. Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, man. In any case, none of this would’ve been possible if my people didn’t help me. So, I couldn’t let this time pass without giving them my full gratitude. Frankly, all of these fine folks are helping me live out my dream.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, fam. Ultimately, this is the happiest I’ve felt in years. By and by, something happens to the spirit when a dream is deferred. At the end of the day, I’m glad I’m out of that rut, bruh. Anyway, I love everyone who’s gotten me to this point and this is only the beginning, son. As of right now, I have some big things on the horizon. First, I’m going to be re-releasing my The Charlemagne Renaissance album on Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal. Side note, folks can vibe out to it on SoundCloud for the time being. In any case, be on the lookout for that. Also, I have more shows in the very near future. The time is now and I want everybody to take this ride with me. Thanks a lot! LC out.

P.S. Shout-out to Scott Morris and all of my brethren at Mor.Bookings for holding the boy down. They’re definitely the plug that I’m not going to run off on. That is all.

P.P.S. Everyone go follow @lcharlemagnenyc on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. That’s where I make all of my music-related posts. Yessir! Good day.
