More Dumb Sh*t From Lil Wayne

So, Lil Wayne said some more fuck shit, huh? I mean, at this point, none of us should be surprised, but it’s still stunning nonetheless. It’s amazing how one man can display such arrogance while in the depths of idiocy. Then again, we’ve all been watching Donald Trump run for president over the last year, so what do I know? In any case, let’s review the latest brand of nonsense uttered by Dwayne Carter.

Now, I could paraphrase what Wayne said, but I’d rather let everyone read what he said for themselves. During an interview with ABC‘s Nightline, the interviewer asked him about his thoughts regarding Black Lives Matter. This was his response:

“That just sounds weird. I don’t know, that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever’. It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a fucked up reason. I am a young, Black, rich motherfucker. If that don’t let you know that America understand Black motherfuckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is. That man White, he filming me. I’m a nigga. I don’t know what you mean, man. Don’t come at me with that dumb ass shit, ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my bitches. I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me.”

*Sigh* I… Wait, no. No! I’m not going to do this again, man. I’ve commented on these sellout ass Black celebrities too many times now. I’ve already written about A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Travi$ Scott and Cam Newton. Hell, I’ve even written about some other Uncle Tom shit Lil Wayne said in the past. As a matter of fact, that’s how we’re going to proceed, son. I want everyone to just go and read my “Racism, As Told By Lil Wayne” post. Seriously, either click the hyperlink or click the link at the bottom of this post. I’m completely over these clown ass Black celebrities, son. Thanks to all of them for being disgraces to the community. Good day.

Who Pissed In Kid Cudi’s Cereal?

Man, what would Twitter be if it wasn’t a venue for celebrities to lose their shit in a barrage of 140 characters? Honestly, ain’t that the best part of following public figures on social media, son? With that being said, I’d like to thank Kid Cudi for throwing all types of shots at Kanye West and Drake yesterday. While I’m not sure who rubbed their nuts on Cudi’s Corn Flakes, I’m absolutely here for the show, bro. Now, let’s get to it.

Now, I have to be honest, son, I don’t know where to start with this story. This is mainly because it has so many layers and they’re all hilarious. So, apparently, Cudi stubbed his toe on a staircase bannister and then decided to fire off some tweets. At first, Cudi spoke in generalizations about artists who consider themselves Top 5 despite having “30 people” write for them. He continued to wax poetically about how the “fake ones” won’t last and he even used my favorite word in the universe: fuckery. Now, even though he shouted out artists like A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott, he made it perfectly clear his derision was aimed at Kanye and Drake.

While I have no idea what these two dudes did to Cudi, he firmly declared the notion that neither one of them care about him. In his mind, they only needed him when he had something to offer them. Furthermore, he believes they only kept him close because of how “powerful” he is. Look, it sounds like a bunch of BFF beef to me, but I can’t fault a man for feeling the way he feels. However; that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh at how emotional these tweets are, bro. I mean, let’s be real, Cudi did the same thing on Twitter that Kanye does on a regular basis. At this point, Kanye is Regal Ruler of Random Ranting and Rambling. No wonder him and Cudi were friends for so long, son.

With all of that being said, there was NO way word was going to get back to Kanye without a response. During his Saint Pablo tour stop in Tampa, Yeezy decided to respond to his former protégé. After a flurry of comments like “I birthed you” and “don’t never mention Ye name,” Kanye expressed being hurt because he was the first one to be called names for wearing skinny jeans. Ok, he didn’t necessarily say that was the only reason he was upset, but c’mon son, he literally brought up wearing skinny jeans first. So, a former mentee airs him out and that’s one of the first things that comes to his mind? I swear, Kanye is one of the funniest human beings on the planet, son. Any man that can mention skinny jeans and Malcolm X is adjoining sentences is a genius, bro.

In the end, can’t we all just get along, man? Look, I’ll give Cudi his credit, son. While I’m not his biggest fan, I’m well aware of the wave he started. He was a driving force behind Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak, which essentially created Drake’s whole aesthetic. So, yeah, his influence can’t be denied. However; I don’t see how this ends well for him. I mean, regardless of what Cudi puts out musically, I doubt it can harm the reign of Drake and Kanye. In case he forgot, they’re the two biggest rappers on the planet. And no, this isn’t up for debate, son. They just are. It is what it is, bro. Good day.

P.S. I know Drake responded to Cudi too, but I can’t help but shoulder shrug, son. Once again, he takes shots onstage, but he probably ain’t got no bars for Cudi. Until then, miss me with the jokes. I’m out.

Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’

Look, I won’t lie, son. This topic has been on my mind for some time now. While I could rail against racial prejudice and institutional bias until I’m blue in the face, sometimes the bullseye needs to be placed squarely on our own chests. With that being said, this post is dedicated to all of the Black celebrities who don’t seem to understand racism. Thank you for proving to us regular folk that money can’t buy “woke.”

While A$AP Rocky may be the face I put on this post, he’s not the only Black celeb who falls into this category. However; let’s just start with him. Now, for those who may be unfamiliar, Rocky caught some heat a few weeks ago regarding his comments about Black Lives Matter. Apparently, in a 2015 interview with Time Out New York, Rocky essentially rebelled against the idea of speaking out against racial injustice. In his mind, he can’t relate to what’s happening to Black people in America because he’s living in Beverly Hills and would rather talk about fashion and the women he’s fucking. Now, at this point, I’m sure there are plenty of dissertations about why these comments are patently absurd, but the problem is, Rocky isn’t the only Black celebrity who feels this way.

When Travi$ Scott was promoting his Rodeo album last year, he did an interview with Clique, a French publication. After the interviewer asked him about the Ferguson protests, Scott simply responded “I don’t really get too involved in the whole political shit.” Now, that statement irked the shit out of me, man. There’s absolutely nothing political about the frequent shootings of individuals who look like HIM. The incredibly sad part about a statement like this is the fact Black public figures seem to think their exempt from unjust treatment. In addition, there also seems to be some misguided belief that since they’re not subjected to the same harsh realities as other minorities, this treatment must not be real. The lack of empathy is completely astounding in their retorts.

I also remember when Bossip interviewed Young Thug on the red carpet of the BET Awards. He was also asked about Mike Brown and the atmosphere in Ferguson, and all that man could talk about was the money he was getting. Honestly, the fact these artists have the ear of our children should be frightening, son. If their ambivalence is passed down to our future generations, we as a community could have a MAJOR problem on our hands.

To be fair, I’m not the first individual to point this trend out. During this year’s BET Awards, Jesse Williams mentioned this same issue in his incredible acceptance speech. While he made a variety of outstanding points, he did specifically mention that we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be distracted by “getting money.” Just because a few individuals are able to occupy a different social category, that doesn’t mean the same treatment has trickled down to the entire race. We can’t lose sight of the fact there are still rampant injustices happening around this country. In addition, we can’t underestimate the strength of public figures speaking out. Frankly, a lot of them have a large enough platform to reach people the everyday crowd can’t. However; there’s an uncomfortable trend of said individuals abandoning the people when they have the chance.

Ultimately, it hurts me to write this type of shit. It hurts me to see our own people distance themselves from us since they no longer share the same daily experiences. No, we don’t need Rocky to be the next Al Sharpton, but it would be helpful for someone in his position to stand with us in solidarity. Side bar, I’m definitely not the biggest Sharpton fan, but I’ll save that for another day. In any case, I guess being on the cover of fashion magazines is more important to Rocky. All I can do is shake my head in disgust, son. Good day.
