Two… TWO Mass Shootings In 24 Hours

So, here we are, son. Another day, another mass shooting. Wait, no, excuse me, man. I mean, another day and TWO MORE mass shootings, fam. Like, I’m at a legitimate loss for words, bruh. Seriously, I just wrote about the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting last Monday, people. How the fuck am I writing about a second AND third shooting in a week’s time? For God‘s sake, something needs to be done NOW!

Ok, let’s start with El Paso, Texas, son. So, Patrick Crusius, a 21-year-old from Allen, Texas, drove over 600 miles to El Paso. Now, as seen in his “manifesto,” he went there for the sole purpose of shooting Hispanic people. This fruit loop believes the country is being overrun by immigrants and his solution was to shoot as many Latino people as he could find. All in all, Crusius killed 20 people and injured another 26.

Now, here’s the part of the article that’s going to make Donald Trump supporters mad. Yes, y’alls President has culpability in this situation. Shit, for the last four years, he’s made it his life’s mission to vilify the Hispanic community. Hell, building the Border Wall was THE major policy point of his campaign, man. Fam, as of right now, there are still countless Hispanic families being held in glorified internment camps, bruh. So, he can’t stoke the flames for all of these years and then back the fuck out when a loser takes his words to heart. On the real, Crusius thought he was helping the fucking cause, folks.

Moving on, let’s talk about Dayton, Ohio. Now, 24-year-old Connor Betts rolled up to the Ned Peppers bar and fired at everyone outside. In under a minute, he murdered 9 people and hurt 27 more. Sadly, his sister, Megan Betts, was one of the innocent folks killed outside of the bar. All I know is, it’s absolutely baffling that he was able to cause so much damage in such a short period of time.

Anyway, when it comes to Betts, he identified as a Democrat. Furthermore, based on his social media presence, he supported Elizabeth Warren and socialism. In addition, he had numerous tweets displaying his disdain for the Trump administration. In any case, I’m still not sure what this fucktard’s motive was. All I can say is, it better not have been related to any bipartisan shit. Bruh, what kind of idiot thinks mass murder is an effective political tool? Like I said, I don’t know if that was his motivation, but at this point, I’d believe it, son. The fact is, people don’t need to die to prove a stupid ass point, man. No one deserves to be killed for the Democrats or the Republicans.

With all of that being said, let’s talk about the two main issues at hand: guns and White male terrorists. Listen, anytime some shit doesn’t go some White dude’s way, his solution is to kill a bunch of innocent people. Look, Timothy McVeigh was mad at the government, so he bombed an entire Federal building. Dylann Roof hated Black people, so he shot up a church. Now, Crusius despised Hispanics, so he drove over 9 hours to murder them. The fact is, domestic (White) terrorists are WAY more dangerous than another other group. That’s right, more deadly than the Muslims they always try to pit us against.

On top of that, the weaponry these terrorists have access to changes the entire game, fam. Bruh, Betts was able to shoot 35+ people in under a minute, son. Real talk, I don’t want to hear a debate, man. Keeping it a buck, if all he had was a knife, there is NO way he’d be able to do that much damage, folks. So yes, the guns are also a fucking problem, brethren. At this point, I really don’t understand how dummies can even argue either of these facts.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, son. Ultimately, we have a gun control problem that no one wants to talk about. We have a White terrorism problem that no one wants to talk about. Shit, Dave Gomez, a former FBI counter-terrorism agent, admitted as much to the Senate, man. By and by, since nobody in power wants to touch these subjects, people will keep on dying, fam. At the end of the day, they can take their “thoughts and prayers” and shove it up their partisan asses, bruh. That is all. LC out.

I Don’t Know What To Say About Mass Shootings Anymore

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m not exactly sure how to start this post, man. I mean, it’s another mass shooting, fam. Like, we have yet ANOTHER instance of some dickhead taking a gun and shooting at an entire group of people. All I know is, I don’t know what to say that’s any more insightful than anything I’ve ever tried to say before, bruh. The truth is, I’m at a fucking loss for words right now, brethren.

Ok, for those who are unaware, shit got real at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California. Apparently, some White dude, who has since been killed, rolled up on the festival with an assault rifle and started blasting. Now, to make matters worse, Jack van Breen, lead singer of Tin Man, alleges that the Army-fatigued shooter said he was “really angry” when asked why he was doing this. In addition, authorities are looking into the possibility of a second suspect.

All in all, three people were killed and 12 more were wounded in the attack. Sadly, a 6-year-old boy was one of the victims. Now, if I’m being honest, I feel a certain sense of hopelessness right now. Like, no matter how many times these incidents happen, nothing is ever really done about it. Furthermore, we as a population can’t even come to some consensus about what the issue is, son. Frankly, with so much division, how are we actually supposed to solve this problem, man?

Look, I’m not one of those people who has blind allegiance to a particular side. Shit, most commonly, there’s a “gun control” side and a “mental health” side. The way I see it, both sides have merit, fam. Listen, do I think a stable-headed individual is just going to get up one day and shoot up a bunch of people? No, bruh. Absolutely not. But, how can folks ignore that guns are also a major fucking issue? Son, a crazy motherfucker with a knife just can’t do as much damage as a crazy motherfucker with a semi-automatic rifle. For God‘s sake, facts are facts, man. Real talk, ignoring common sense is costing innocent people their lives, folks. All I can say is, something, fucking anything, needs to be done, brethren.

In the end, I just want to give my condolences to the families affected by this tragedy. Ultimately, I’m sorry that we live in a country that doesn’t do more to protect its citizens. By and by, the more things change the more they stay the same, son. At the end of the day, no amount of death seems to motivate our elected officials. So, I don’t know what else to say here, man. I’m sorry. That is all. LC out.

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.
