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.

God Bless Yung Miami & Cardi B

Disclaimer: Don’t watch City Girls’ “Twerk” video anywhere near a place of employment. You’re welcome.

So, let me keep it a buck, son. Generally, I try to be a responsible and respectable dude. I try to be a guy who’s knowledgeable about relevant and pertinent issues, man. However, for today, I’m just talking about ass, fam. I mean, it was EVERYWHERE in City Girls’ “Twerk” video, bruh! Like, all jokes aside, this might be the greatest music video ever made, people. With that being said, why is anyone still reading this?

Ok, for those who missed it, City Girls, well, Yung Miami, released the “Twerk” video with Cardi B. Now, I don’t exactly know what to say about this visual, son. Shit, there are copious amounts of women shaking all manners of culo, man. In addition, there’s a ton of body paint, stripper poles and entertaining displays of athleticism. On the real, what else could we possibly want from a video called “Twerk,” fam?

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, bruh. Ultimately, everyone needs to go watch the video, son. Also, I hope everybody paid close attention to my disclaimer. Seriously, don’t watch this shit anywhere near a place that supplies paychecks. Furthermore, don’t watch this around children or close to any clergy, man. At the end of the day, they’ll probably just start praying for wayward souls, fam. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Based on this video, Offset lost, bruh. Like, he really lost, son. *Sigh* Good day.

Nah, Usher, We’re Good

So, before anyone out there thinks I’m hating, let me make one thing clear: I’m a big Usher fan, son. I mean, if we’re being real here, he has one of the strongest discographies in R&B history, man. Listen, any artist who goes from My Way to 8701 to Confessions should never be disrespected, fam. Hell, I even think Here I Stand is criminally underrated, bruh. Honestly, the title track alone is worth the price of admission, folks. With all of that being said, this new album ain’t it, people. All in all, Trap Usher needs to get the fuckity-fuck outta here, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, Usher just dropped a surprise album on Friday. Moving on, not only did his “A” album come out of nowhere, but it also features only one producer: Zaytoven. Now, for anybody who’s unfamiliar with Zaytoven, let me explain it like this: pick any Gucci Mane or Future jam from the past 10 years and there’s a good chance that Zaytoven did it. Hell, he’s a staple in the Atlanta music scene, son. In any case, he solely handles the boards on Usher’s latest effort.

To be clear, my issue with this album is not Zaytoven’s production. Hell, the beats sound exactly the way I would expect them to, man. Real talk, my problem is Usher, fam. Listen, in 2018, I’m not trying to hear Trap Usher. I’m not trying to hear Strip Club Usher. I’m not trying to hear Turn Up Usher. Look, does everyone see where I’m going with this? On the real, Usher is too damn grown to be singing about childish subjects, bruh. Like, he’s a legend, people. He shouldn’t feel the need to chase trends. Keeping it a buck, that’s why his last few projects haven’t been hitting. He’s more concerned with keeping up with the times than simply being himself.

In the end, no thanks, Usher. Ultimately, the minute he gets back with Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox, I’ll be back onboard, son. Fam, did Usher hear Cox’s work on Ella Mai‘s “Dangerous?” *Sigh* That could’ve been an Usher joint, man. Anyway, the point is, I want Usher to sound like Usher, bruh. I don’t want him to sound like 6lack. Side note, I’m a 6lack fan, so don’t take that as a diss. Anyway, I’m not here for the “A” album. That’s all I have to say, folks. That is all. LC out.

My First A3C Festival

So, let me be real, son. I’m not here to talk about the nonsense that prematurely ended the A3C Festival, man. Frankly, I don’t want a couple minutes of idiocy to overshadow a great event, fam. Keeping it a buck, along with the A3C Conference, the entire week was fantastic for Hip-Hop and for Atlanta. All I know is, this may have been my first year attending, but it certainly won’t be my last, bruh.

Ok, before I continue, allow me to be honest, son. On the real, I didn’t get a chance to enjoy the whole conference, man. Now, if my memory is right, the conference portion started last Wednesday. However, I didn’t make it to the A until Friday. In any case, there were tons of panels and workshops to help aspiring artists reach their goals. There were a lot of great resources and a multitude of influential people who could do great things for an artist’s career.

Now, while I may have missed some of the good stuff, I was still involved in some dope shit, fam. First, thanks to my bro Mike Walbert, the Executive Director of A3C, I was able to meet members of the Wu-Tang Clan at a private art show for Atlanta artists. All I can say is, dapping up RZA was definitely a highlight for me, bruh. I mean, the Wu were/are a HUGE part of my musical identity, son. Needless to say, I was doing my best to not be a visibly overzealous stan, son.

Moving on, the festival itself was even better than advertised, man. Shit, in a two-night period, I got to see J.I.D, Talib Kweli, Wu-Tang and Dipset, fam. For God‘s sake, I don’t know how to explain how amped I was, bruh. Anyway, I didn’t get a chance to see Lil Wayne because I had a show of my own that night. Side note, shout-out to Scott Morris, Asia Golden, my dude Zeyi and the whole Mor.Bookings team for looking out. Shit was definitely live at iLounge, son.

In any case, I also missed the stupidity that prematurely ended Wayne’s set, man. However, based on the accounts of my folks in attendance, two dudes starting fighting in VIP, someone else incorrectly stated that they heard gunshots and then everybody started running. Hell, based on situations like the Las Vegas shooting, people don’t want to take that chance, fam. Sadly, a disagreement between two idiots ruined a show for EVERYONE! *Sigh* An entire week of awesomeness was dampened by the actions of a few. All in all, I hope this is not the only thing that people take away from this, bruh.

In the end, I don’t want folks to lose sight of the fact that A3C was/is a great time, son. Ultimately, I’ll be back next year and early enough to enjoy everything. By and by, these type of festivals are great for Hip-Hop, man. At the end of the day, two dumbasses can’t change that, fam. That is all. LC out.

LC Live From A3C

So, I’m going to keep this super short today, son. Basically, I’m doing a show next Sunday in Atlanta, man. Needless to say, I’m fucking hyped, fam! Anyway, this is how the story goes, bruh: I’m going to be in the A for the A3C Festival (shout-out to my dude Mike Walbert). On Sunday, October 7th at 9:00 PM, I’m going to be at iLounge. I’m on the bill for the “East Coast vs. Da South” show. Moving on, I have a short set but we’re going to make it do what it do, baby. In any case, if anyone is going to be in the A next weekend, then come fuck with me, brethren. Everybody can buy a ticket for the show here. All in all, big ups to Scott Morris and Mor.Bookings for the look. That is all. LC out.

Get Ray Lewis The F*ck Outta Here!

Man, I have so many simultaneous thoughts in my head, I don’t even know where to start, son. Look, Ray Lewis needs to shut the fuckity-fuck up, fam! Listen, I’m pretty sure that Colin Kaepernick isn’t looking to him for advice, bruh. In addition, I TRULY don’t like the idea of a Black man telling another Black man to be low key about activism. On the real, that’s just another way of saying “play nice and don’t publicly piss off White people.” All in all, fuck all of that, man!

Now, for anyone who missed it, Lewis took it upon himself to show Kaepernick “the way.” According to Lewis, if Kaepernick wants to find another job in the NFL, he needs to be quieter about social injustice. Apparently, standing up for what’s right pales in comparison to not upsetting the owners. By and by, Kaepernick needs to be a “good boy” if he wants to secure a spot on another team.

Real talk, that seems to be a common theme amongst Kaepernick’s Black detractors. Basically, if he stopped making White people uncomfortable, then they’d let him throw the football around again. I mean, this is the same shit I roasted Michael Vick for. We’re so programmed as a community, that instead of championing Kaepernick for standing up for US, we’d rather tell him to be more presentable to the White majority. *Sigh* As Malcolm X once said, “who taught you to hate yourself?” Clearly, we already know the answer to that, son.

Moving on, outside of the ridiculous message, I also have a problem with the source, son. Keeping it a buck, Lewis is the LAST human being who should be giving ANYONE pointers, man! Lest we forget, his white suit was never found after Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar were stabbed to death. Lest we forget, he snitched on Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting to get his murder charges dismissed. Shit, Kaepernick is being judged for taking a knee during the fucking National Anthem, fam. All I know is, Lewis isn’t some beacon of purity, bruh.

In the end, I’m tired of Black people worrying more about our image than our rights. Instead of addressing the issues that Kaepernick is highlighting, folks would rather tell him to pipe down and just play football. Ultimately, the joke is on us as we continue to be mistreated and killed by systemic violence. Then again, maybe Lewis empathizes because he’s also gotten away with murder. Shit, just some food for thought, people. LC out.

P.S. The entire “shut the fuck up” mantra of this post also applies to Kordell Stewart. Seriously, no one wants this dude’s opinion, fam. On the real, all I want from “Slash” is Porsha Williams‘ phone number. Hook that up, bruh. That is all.

R. Kelly Is Who We Thought He Was

On the real, I don’t know what to say right now, son. Like, this story can’t be real, man. I mean, it could very possibly be real, but I can’t believe that we’re here again with R. Kelly. Real talk, this man is a fucking predator, fam! He’s always been a predator and he continues to be one. All I can say is, I hope this is the straw that finally breaks the camel’s back. However; I can’t help but doubt that, bruh.

Now, before I continue, I really want everyone to read this BuzzFeed article. The story was written by Jim DeRogatis, a journalist who’s been trying to show the world who R. Kelly really is for years. In any case, his latest post discusses various reports of Kelly running a six-woman “cult,” where their sole purpose is to please him in any way he sees fit.

Apparently, he brainwashes aspiring singers to the point where he tells them what to eat, when to sleep, how to dress and how to have sex with him. In addition, when they do something wrong, he supposedly abuses them both physically and verbally. Anyway, the parents of two of the young women have notified the police, but since they’re not technically “missing,” the authorities can’t really do anything.

Keeping it a buck, I don’t even have the time to detail all of the tidbits in this story, man. All I know is, Kelly is reportedly keeping these girls on either his Atlanta or Chicago property. Rumor has it, Kelly even had a “den mother” who taught the girls how to sexually satisfy him. Even crazier, this unnamed woman is said to be a friend of the underage girl who was in the R. Kelly sextape. Like, I can’t make this shit up, fam! This dude R. Kelly is really out here WILIN’, son!

Moving on, I remember DeRogatis’ name because of an article I read in the Village Voice a few years back. In it, writer Jessica Hopper detailed DeRogatis’ findings about the lengths that Kelly would go to prey on young girls. After all of this time, two things are incredibly chilling, man: the fact that he’s still out here victimizing the opposite sex, and the fact that people still don’t seem to care.

At this point, how can anyone defend this man?! I mean, we KNOW he married an underage Aaliyah. We KNOW he raped a minor on video. Good fucking Lord, what will it take for people to finally turn on this dude?! He takes advantage of people who can’t defend themselves and folks are still willing to jam to his music. Where’s the fucking line, son?! This is the same bullshit with Bill Cosby. Art doesn’t make up for rape, son! Not in any sense, man. Enough is fucking enough!

In the end, fuck this fool, fam! Also, fuck anybody that shrugs off his behavior! Indifference is exactly why he’s been able to skate for so long. The time has come for him to be held accountable for his actions. Then again, some idiot is going to read this post and still put on one of his albums. *Sigh* I don’t know what else to say, son. LC out.

P.S. All jokes aside, I really want everyone to read that BuzzFeed article, man. Like, the story is waaaaay creepier than anything I wrote in this post, fam. All in all, I’m fucking disgusted, bruh! Absolutely disgusted. That is all.
