The Toronto Raptors Really Needed To Win Game 5

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, last night’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors was one of the wildest games I’ve ever seen, man. I mean, the Raptors were right there, fam. Like, riiiiiight there, bruh. Shit, they were three minutes away from their first NBA Championship and they blew it. All I know is, last night’s loss puts them in a tough situation. Yeah, they’re still leading the series, but now ALL of the pressure is on them to pull this off.

Ok, for those who missed it because they hate themselves, Game 5 was crazy, son. First, the momentum seemed to shift in the Warriors’ favor when Kevin Durant decided to play. Hell, on a suspect calf, Durant tried to save his team from elimination. On top of that, he actually started off hot, man. Listen, he hit a couple of threes and it looked like he might turn the tide of this series. Then, in the second quarter, he went down with an Achilles injury. All I know is, that was the LAST thing that I wanted to see, fam.

At that point, it would’ve been easy to assume that the Warriors would crumble. Instead, they maintained their lead until the fourth quarter. From there, Kawhi Leonard decided that enough was enough. Look, he basically went on a double-digit run by himself, bruh. Real talk, when the Raptors jumped to a 103-97 lead with three minutes left, I thought the game was over, son. However, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson would not be denied, man. Basically, they put the team on their backs and squeaked out an improbable win, fam. Now, the Raptors have to try and win the title back in Oakland.

Now, here’s why I think the Raptors are in trouble. First, they’ve already won two games in Oracle Arena this series. With that being said, to get the ring in the next game, they would have to win ANOTHER game in that place. So, folks want me to believe that the Warriors, the team who’s won three of the last four titles, are going to lose three games at home? Bruh, I highly, HIGHLY doubt that. In addition, if the Raptors do lose Game 6, then they’ll be facing another Game 7 at home. All I can say is, that’s waaaaaay too much pressure on a team who’s never won a championship before. Frankly, they’re in danger of becoming the second team to blow a 3-1 lead in the Finals.

In the end, I think the Raptors missed a golden opportunity, son. Now, I’m not saying that they won’t win it all. Ultimately, they could very well close this thing out on Thursday. But, they’re now facing a fire that they didn’t want. Essentially, the defending champs are staring them in the face and daring them to kill them. By and by, we’ll see if these dudes have the mental fortitude to get it done, man. That is all. LC out.

P.S. That Durant injury is terrible, fam. Ok, yes, I have a history of criticizing him. But, I never wanted to see him go down like that, bruh. Keeping it a buck, it doesn’t matter that I want him on my New York Knicks. The fact of the matter is, when he’s healthy, he’s probably the best player in the world, son. All in all, the league is better when he’s killing shit, man. I just hope that the injury doesn’t permanently effect his career, brethren. Good day.

P.P.S. The Raptors fans ain’t shit for cheering when Durant went down. Like, what kinda loser celebrates an injury? By and by, I believe in karma, fam. The way I see it, that bush league shit is probably why their team lost that game, bruh. Ok, bye.

Stop Giving Laura Ingraham Attention

So, before I begin, let me say that I know what some people might be thinking. Yeah, I’m aware that writing this post is a bit hypocritical, given the title. However, today’s thoughts aren’t really about Laura Ingraham. In reality, they’re about how we all react to Laura Ingraham. Keeping it a buck, we need to stop giving her attention, son. All in all, why the fuck do we care about what she says, man?

Ok, for those who missed it, Laura Ingraham went into her Laura Ingraham bag. Now, while addressing Nipsey Hussle’s funeral at the Staples Center, she decided to laugh and take swipes at the deceased rapper. I mean, despite all of the things that Hussle did for his community, Ingraham simply labeled him as an artist who “released a song called ‘FDT,” F Donald Trump.” From there, her and Raymond Arroyo showed a picture of YG, not Nip, and laughed about the song’s chorus. All I can say is, it was incredibly distasteful, fam.

But, with all of that being said, why is anyone surprised, bruh? Like, this is the same woman who told LeBron James to “shut up and dribble.” This is the same woman who publicly ridiculed David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting. Frankly, she’s given us AMPLE examples that she’s a piece of shit, son. The truth is, the more we react to her tomfoolery, the more she’s going to feel emboldened, man. Real talk, she’s no different than Tomi Lahren, fam. The way I see it, we need to stop giving these vapid losers notoriety, folks. Their opinions truly mean nothing, brethren.

In the end, Ingraham is going to Ingraham, son. Ultimately, when she gets on her bullshit, we need to look the other way, man. By and by, if a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it, does it make a sound? Who the fuck cares, fam? Let that tree “tree” by itself, bruh. At the end of the day, our anger is what these idiots feed off of, people. They don’t deserve any of our peace, B. That is all. LC out.

Christopher Darden Is Still A Clown

So, I’m going to try to keep this post short today, son. Frankly, I just want to proclaim that Christopher Darden is a clown, man. He was a clown in 1994 and he’s still a clown in 2019. On the real, I don’t care to hear the reasons why he’s defending Eric Holder. All I can say is, I hope he botches the case like he botched the O. J. Simpson trial. At this point, I only want justice for Nipsey Hussle, fam.

Ok, before I continue, let me be honest, bruh. Listen, a lot of this story doesn’t add up, B. So, let me attempt to make sense of this timeline. Now, Holder is seen having a conversation with Nip. Then, he leaves, comes back with a gun and starts firing. Next, he doubles back two more times and fires more shots into Nip. Days later, he’s apprehended by the police at a mental health facility. Finally, he’s now being represented by Darden. Fam, am I the only one who thinks that’s sketchy as shit? Nah, there’s something fishy in the water and I don’t like it at all, son.

In any case, I’m interested to see how Darden is going to try to spin this, man. The way I see it, he only has two options: self-defense or insanity. Based on the footage outside of Nip’s store, I don’t see self-defense working in the slightest. So, insanity is the only real play here. But, good luck with that, fam. It definitely seems like Holder had/has all of his facilities intact, bruh. So, I hope the judge throws his dumbass under the jail, brethren.

In the end, fuck Eric Holder and fuck Christopher Darden. Ultimately, that loser needs to pay for his actions, son. By and by, it’s time for Darden to do the Darden. Yeah, go ahead and fuck up this case, man. At the end of the day, we need him to fail again so Holder can go to prison for the rest of his life. That is all. LC out.

F*ck Eric Holder

So, let me get straight to the business, son. Fuck Eric Holder, man. I mean, it’s bad enough that he took Nipsey Hussle’s life. But, it’s even worse to know that it was seemingly over something so meaningless, fam. Now, based on the type of life that Nipsey led, I know that some people want to believe in conspiracies. However, it really does seem like he was killed by a loser with no morals. All in all, Nipsey Hussle didn’t deserve to die such a senseless death, bruh.

Ok, for those who don’t know the backstory, I’ll try my best to explain it. Now, Nipsey was a member of the Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips. Shit, if anyone heard any of his records, they’d know that he frequently made references to his upbringing, son. In any case, Holder, also known as Shitty Cuz, was another member of that particular set. Meaning, him and Nipsey knew each other. Apparently, Holder and Nipsey had a couple of conversations outside of Marathon Clothing before Holder came back shooting. Word on the street is, Nipsey originally tried to dismiss him due to Holder’s alleged history as an informant.

In any case, as of today, Holder is in custody. Based on reports, he was picked up by the police outside of a mental health facility. Side note, I really hope Holder doesn’t try to use the “I’m not fit to stand trial” defense. Nah, fam, he needs to own up to the bullshit he did, man. On the real, he took away a father, a businessman and a musician for no justifiable reason, bruh. Frankly, I hope that shit eats at him for however long he has left on this Earth, son.

In the end, rest in peace to Nipsey Hussle. Ultimately, that will continue to be the real story here. By and by, he was a man who was trying to make a real difference in his community. Hell, even the police department was shocked by his murder, man. At the end of the day, that’s how we know he stood for something positive, fam. That is all. LC out.

RIP Nipsey Hussle

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m fucking sick right now, man. I mean, I was a big fan of Nipsey Hussle, fam. All I know is, his murder is some bullshit, bruh. Like, why would somebody kill a guy who was ACTIVELY trying to better his community? Look, no one deserves what happened to Nipsey, but he especially demanded better, folks. All in all, situations like this make me wonder if being a resource is even worth it, brethren.

Ok, for those who missed it, Nipsey was shot outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles. Apparently, some idiot hit him and two others around 3 PM in the damn afternoon. Now, at the moment, no one knows why Nipsey was targeted. On one hand, people are assuming that the incident had something to do with his history as a Crip. On the other hand, conspiracy theorists are alleging that the attack was due to a Dr. Sebi documentary that Nipsey was producing. All I can say is, we don’t know, but I’d put all of my money on a jealous hater, son.

In any case, I became a fan of Nipsey Hussle back in 2010. Around that time, my dude Kof put me on to his The Marathon mixtape. Now, after playing “Keys 2 the City” an insane amount of times, I officially joined the bandwagon, man. From then, I clocked in whenever he dropped a new project. Moving on, all of his work culminated with the release of his Victory Lap album last year. Side note, everyone can read my previous review of the record. It’s still my favorite Rap album from 2018, fam. Anyway, Nipsey was always consistent with his music and the quality never waned.

On top of that, Nipsey was an avid investor in his neighborhood. Now, when I say “investor,” I’m not just talking about money, bruh. Frankly, he invested in the people, son. He started businesses, he gave people jobs and he gave folks a wealth of free knowledge and information. He was always an advocate for Black ownership and made it his mission to steer kids away from gang violence. Point blank, Nipsey Hussle was a good dude, man. The fact is, his death is senseless as shit, fam.

In the end, my prayers go out to Lauren London, his kids and the rest of his family. Ultimately, no one needs to lose a loved one in such a ridiculous manner, bruh. By and by, I truly hope they catch the dumbass who did this to him, son. At the end of the day, it’s always tragic when negative things happen to positive people. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Below are some of my favorite Nipsey jams. Let’s remember his music the right way, man. Good day.

A Formerly ‘Ain’t Shit’ Dude’s Advice To Offset

So, let me keep it a buck, son. In order to make a point about this Cardi B and Offset situation, I’m going to throw myself under the bus. In any case, I just hope that anybody in Offset’s position can learn from my past mistakes. All I can say is, I’d bet money that his public campaign to get Cardi back is actually hurting him, man. The way I see it, Offset needs to take a much different approach, fam.

Ok, before I continue, let me outline my qualifications on this topic. Now, back in 2011, I was wilin’ in these streets, bruh. Anyway, despite the fact that I was a new dad and in a committed relationship, I was frequently involved in shenanigans that I had no business being a part of, son. Moving on, I ended up doing some shit with a woman who wasn’t my lady. Needless to say, I ended up in all of the doghouses, man. However, instead of immediately pushing her to take me back, I went a slightly different route, fam.

Now, as difficult as it was for me to do, I gave her space, bruh. I gave her room to make a decision for herself. No public showboating and no persistent pressure. Shit, instead of pining for her on social media, I legit disappeared from Facebook and Twitter for like 3 months. I made it a point to be present without being overbearing. So, that meant getting cursed out regularly. That meant getting ignored for days on end. That meant facing the possibility that she might not come back. All in all, the choice was in her hands and I wasn’t going to force her to make it.

Look, the point of that story is to tell Offset to back off a little. Ok, yes, it definitely seems like he wants his wife back. But, all of this attention may backfire, bruh. Hell, she basically said as much when she said “I told you I don’t like surprises” on Instagram. On the real, if she feels like she’s being bombarded on all angles, she might end up pulling away even more. The truth is, Offset needs to let her make a decision for herself. Real talk, that’s the only real chance he has, son.

In the end, don’t show up to any more concerts, Offset. Ultimately, he doesn’t want his woman to feel smothered. By and by, it’s insanely hard to loosen the grip while also trying to regain a connection. However, that may be his only real move, man. At the end of the day, the ball is in Cardi’s court, fam. Allow her to call the play. It might just work, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Ian David Long: When ‘Thoughts & Prayers’ Don’t Work

So, I’m going to start today’s post a little different, son. Normally, I would give some intro about what I was going to talk about. But, before I say anything, I want people to read what Ian David Long wrote in a Facebook post the other day. So, here we go:

I hope people call me insane .. wouldn’t that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah… I’m insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is ‘hopes and prayers’.. or ‘keep you in my thoughts’ … every time… and wonder why these keep happening …

Now, to be clear, these are the words of a Marine veteran who shot and killed 12 people at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. Look, in one post, a mass murderer destroyed our country’s indifference to gun control AND mental health. Real talk, after every incident, politicians send out “thoughts and prayers,” but never do anything to remedy the situation. Sadly, Ian Long knew this, man.

At this point, no one knows why Long committed these killings, fam. I mean, there’s speculation that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after his time in Afghanistan. Shit, if that’s the case, should he have been allowed to legally purchase a .45-caliber Glock handgun? Listen, these are the type of scenarios that reasonable people think about when asking for gun reform. Real talk, I’m not one of those folks who think that nobody should have a firearm. I just want to make sure that the ones who do are in their right fucking mind. Clearly, Long was not one of those individuals, bruh.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, son. Ultimately, I can’t definitively say that I know the reason for all of these mass shootings. Is it gun control? Is it mental health? Is it terrorism? Is it a combination of all of the above? I don’t fucking know, man. All I know is, this “thoughts and prayers” shit isn’t working, fam. With that being said, I’m tired of all of the partisan bullshit. At the end of the day, our elected officials need to get to the bottom of the issue and nip this shit in the bud, bruh. For God‘s sake, how many more people have to die? *Sigh* Rest In Peace to all of the victims, brethren. Once again, a group of innocent people died for no reason. LC out.
