‘Whose Mans Is This?’: My Thoughts On The Kanye West & Charlamagne Tha God Interview

So, I’m not going to lie, son. Real talk, I’m going to cheat with today’s post, man. I mean, at this point, I’ve said everything I could possibly say about Kanye West and his coonery, fam. All in all, his sit-down with Charlamagne Tha God hasn’t changed anything for me, bruh. Frankly, Ye has done a TERRIBLE job of eloquently expressing his thoughts and opinions. Side note, I think that’s because, as he proved with T.I., he doesn’t really know what the FUCK he’s talking about.

In any case, today’s plan is to simply re-post several articles I’ve already written about Kanye. On the real, I feel like they all still apply right now, folks. In addition, I’m going to post his interview with Charlamagne and let people take from it what they will. At the end of the day, I really might be out of words, people. Keeping it a buck, I don’t know what else to say about Kanye West. So, I’ll just let my previous words do the talking. *Sigh* People can click on my hyperlinks below. That’s all I’ve got for now, brethren. LC out.

P.S. I have no words whatsoever for Kanye’s interview with TMZ. I… *Sigh* Shout-out to Van Lathan, though. He said everything that needed to be said. Bye.

What Happened To Kenneka Jenkins?

So, to be real, I keep reading stories about Kenneka Jenkins and I still don’t feel like I know anything, son. Like, no matter what article I come across, I’m still clueless about what led to this young woman’s death. As it stands, no concrete information has surfaced about her demise. All I know is, Teresa Martin deserves to know what happened to her daughter. Real talk, I don’t know if foul play was involved, but the truth needs to come to the light, man. All in all, Jenkins’ story is thoroughly unsettling, fam.

Now, for those who missed it, I’m going to try and condense this wild story. So, the entire situation unfolded over this past weekend. On Friday, Jenkins left her Chicago home to go party at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. During the course of the night, she spoke with her sister and even seemed to appear in a Facebook Live video. Around 3 a.m., she was seen walking around drunk on a hotel camera near the front desk. Around 4 a.m., her friends called her mother to tell her that they couldn’t find her. Fast forward to 12 a.m. on Sunday, Jenkins was found dead in an industrial freezer in the hotel.

Moving on, the main issue here is that we don’t know what happened between the time she was seen on camera and when her body was discovered. As of now, social media is in an uproar, with everyone offering analysis of what they think happened. Naturally, everyone wants to know what her friends know. How did they lose track of her? What was she doing before she disappeared? Who are all of the people in that Facebook Live video and what do they know? Did Jenkins’ body have any noticeable injuries? On the real, we’re all speculating and we legit don’t know shit, man!

Keeping it a buck, I can’t automatically say that foul play was involved. Not because it isn’t a possibility, but because we don’t have enough facts to make any judgment calls. Shit, we don’t know if someone hurt her or if she just stumbled into the freezer. Either way, the situation is super tragic, man. In any case, her friends do need to start talking, though. Someone has to know something about her untimely demise, son. In my eyes, I wouldn’t be surprised if some freak accident happened and these teenagers tried to cover it up. All I can say her, Jenkins’ autopsy can’t come soon enough, fam.

In the end, Rest In Peace to Kenneka Jenkins. Ultimately, it’s truly sad that she died so young, man. As a 32-year-old man, I couldn’t imagine leaving this world at 19. Shit, our lives are just getting started at that age, son. In addition, as a father, I couldn’t imagine losing a child is such a manner, bruh. By and by, I just hope this isn’t a mystery that remains unsolved. LC out.

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.

Sammy Sosa Looks BONKERS!

Son! Fam! Bruh! What?! Huh?! Dude, what the entire FUCK is going on around here?! Seriously, who the hell is the pink-faced mammal in the photo above?! Now, people are telling me that it’s Sammy Sosa, but I refuse to believe that, son. Like, I’ve always known about his skin-bleaching fetish, but this is preposterous, man! All jokes aside, Sosa has surpassed Michael Jackson in terms of skin-changing fuckery.

Now, shit got weird when Sosa sat down with ESPN to talk about this year’s Home Run Derby. Needless to say, once we all saw his face, we stopped giving a fuck about what he was saying. Son, what in Baby Jesus‘ name did this man do to himself?! Shit, what part of the game is being lavender, son? What part of the game is looking like a batch of cotton candy, man? Listen, I like to match my clothes, but I didn’t think my skin color had to be part of the equation, fam. All in all, this man looks fucking NUTS, bruh!

On the real, I knew Sosa had an affinity for bleaching, but I never thought he’d take it this far. Keeping it a buck, the dude used to be my complexion, son. Now, he looks like a fucking Starburst, man. It’s like he went into Home Depot and said “I want to look like the paint in my daughter’s room.” All I know is, I literally can’t believe what I’m witnessing, fam.

Moving on, this type of tomfoolery is why people like Kodak Black need to be called out on their fuckery, man. This Sosa nonsense is a PRIME example of what some folks do when they hate their skin color, son. So, no, we can’t just let derogatory comments about complexion slide, fam. All in all, when I look at Sosa, I see a man who legitimately hates himself. Frankly, it’s disgraceful to watch because I used to be a huge fan of this guy, steroids and all.

In the end, I’m blown away by all of this, son. Like, this fool is actually pink, man! I swear, the truth is always stranger than fiction, fam. Ultimately, I don’t see where Sosa can go from here. I mean, it’s not like he can turn back the hands of time, bruh. Sadly, I don’t think he wants to either. *Sigh* LC out.

Should I Be Excited For A New Jay-Z Album?

Now, before I get started, let me make one thing clear: Jay-Z is the greatest rapper of all time. No, I will not debate this and I will not entertain any opinions to the contrary. Listen, the sky is blue, water is wet and Jigga is the G.O.A.T. It just is what it is, fam. With that being said, do we really need a new Hov album, bruh? Look, I may be speaking blasphemy, but I don’t know what to make of a 2017 Jay-Z album. Ultimately, I’m hoping it’s good, but I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment.

So, for me, the last great Hov album was American Gangster. In my eyes, it’s his best album after Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint. Yeah, that’s right, I’m putting it ahead of The Black Album and Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life, son. I mean, the soulful production is perfect and his bars are immaculate, man. Fam, any emcee that can write a line like “surviving droughts, I wish you well” cannot be disrespected. In any case, that album represents Hov at the end of his prime. Now, while I enjoy a number of songs off of The Blueprint 3 and Magna Carta Holy Grail, those albums don’t hit me like Jigga at his best.

Keeping it a buck, when I first heard about Hov’s new album, I wasn’t excited. Well, not until I heard No I.D.‘s name. Apparently, the legendary Chicago producer is shepherding the entire record. Now, if that’s the case, I’ll definitely need to take a listen to the album. On the real, I don’t think No I.D. has ever missed, man. I mean, from his countless work with Common to Jay’s “D.O.A.,” he always drops fire, son. Hopefully, the same remains true for this new endeavor. While I wasn’t super geeked about the “Adnis” snippet, I’ll reserve judgement until I hear the entire song.

In the end, I just want the album to be good, man. Listen, Jay is by far my favorite rapper. I can’t have him looking super washed out here, son. All in all, I guess we’ll all see what’s really good on June 30th. Don’t let us down, Jay. LC out.

P.S. I know Hov owns Tidal, but damn, bruh! Can we chill with the streaming exclusives, fam? Look, none of us should have to pay for multiple platforms in order to hear our favorite artists. It’s fucking ridiculous, son. Ok, rant over. Peace.

Get United Airlines The F*ck Outta Here!

Really, United Airlines? Like, REALLY, United Airlines?! This is how y’all get down, son? Dragging a paying customer off of an airplane is the wave now? Man, after I saw the video of David Dao’s “removal” from a Chicago flight, I was fucking baffled, bruh. I mean, is this why we pay airline companies? To have them treat us like the prison guards treated Bogs Diamond in The Shawshank Redemption? Look, all I know is, regardless of the overbooking dilemma, Dao paid for his seat. He should have NEVER had to face this level of disrespect and injustice.

So, the whole issue started when a flight from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. Now, anyone who has ever taken a flight should be relatively familiar with an airline’s overbooking policy. Essentially, to account for individuals who may flake out on their flight, airlines overbook to ensure all airplane seats are full. In theory, it makes sense, but of course, there can be hiccups. Needless to say, there was a HUGE hiccup on this particular flight. All in all, there were too many people on the plane and someone needed to get off.

Now, as expected, no one willingly volunteered to leave. I mean, who really wants to wait for another flight, son? Look, if I’ve already settled into my seat, I’m not getting off of the plane. In my eyes, the airline should’ve figured this out before I buckled my seatbelt. In any case, David Dao must’ve felt the same way. However; the airline had a completely different take on the situation. Ultimately, they instructed Dao to get off and wait for another flight. When he refused to go, three security guards literally dragged him off of the aircraft. Apparently, Dao’s money wasn’t enough to avoid getting his ass kicked by United Airlines personnel.

Moving on, Oscar Munoz, the CEO of United Airlines, sounded a lot like the police in his response to the situation. As justification for his employees’ conduct, he stated that Dao was “disruptive and belligerent.” On the real, cops use these same keywords to justify why they put 20 bullets in an unarmed Black person. Look, anybody in Dao’s position would feel the same way. This man paid for his flight, sat in his seat and is now being told he has to go. Apparently, despite taking his money, United Airlines didn’t give a flying fuck about how this may have inconvenienced Dao. Shit, since he already paid, they probably figured they could do anything to him. In any case, this entire scenario is pure tomfoolery, son.

In the end, I hope Dao sues the paint off of United Airlines. Listen, any company that’s cool with this type of conduct needs to be taken down a few notches. Also, I hope Munoz loses his job. Keeping it a buck, he’s a piece of shit for his stance on all of this. In any case, I now know what airline I’m never using again. From here on out, United Airlines can suck a bag of dicks, word to Louis CK. LC out.

P.S. Once again, the media is doing its best to throw the victim under the bus. Ever since Dao’s identity was revealed, several outlets have reported on his questionable history. Man, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit, son! What does a previous drug case have to do with THIS situation? Why doesn’t the news ever focus on the matter at hand? Regardless of what this man was previously accused of, that still didn’t give the airline the right to physically assault him. *Sigh* Ok, I’m done now. Good day.

P.P.S. A major, MAJOR fuck you to Bill O’Reilly for laughing at David Dao’s plight. I swear, for someone who loves sexually harassing women, he really operates like his shit doesn’t stink. Well, I hope he’s still laughing after the remainder of his advertisers drop him. That is all.

Can We Finally Talk About Homegrown Terrorists?

Now, before I say anything else, I’d like to give my regards to the families who were affected by the recent terror attack in London, England. No matter how many times these travesties happen, it’s always incredibly sad to watch. With that being said, there’s a conversation that needs to be had, man. Can we finally talk about homegrown terrorists? I mean, if we really looked at the most egregious attacks in recent years, they’ve all been perpetrated by citizens. At some point, we need to stop politicizing everything and speak on the real issues. Our own people are being radicalized and it’s destroying our respective nations.

So, when it comes to Wednesday’s incident, the horrific deed was carried out by Khalid Masood. As a recap, Masood got in his car, drove on the pavement and started running down pedestrians. Ultimately, he killed four people and injured fifty more. Now, it’s notable that Masood was born as Adrian Russell Elms in Dartford, Kent. Meaning, he was a product of the same land he just terrorized. Somewhere along the line, he got radicalized by ISIS and carried out a heinous act of violence. Apparently, even though he had a criminal record, he wasn’t under any investigation for this type of behavior.

Moving on, Masood’s act continues a dangerous trend that seems to be flying under the radar. A large number of the most despicable acts against people are being committed by natives. I mean, let’s go down the line, man. Dylann Roof, the Charleston church shooter, was born in South Carolina. Rizwan Farook, the San Bernardino shooter, was born in Illinois. Omar Mateen, the Orlando nightclub shooter, was born in New York. Alexandre Bissonnette, the Quebec mosque shooter, was French Canadian. Does anyone else see the pattern here? In all seriousness, the most vicious attacks in recent years were all committed by citizens. So, if that’s the case, why the fuck are we always talking about travel bans and border walls?!

Look, if people like Donald Trump really want to keep America safe, then we need to address our homegrown killers. On the real, a wall along the Mexican border and a Muslim Ban wouldn’t have prevented ANY of these incidents, man. So, how will they make any of us safer? I mean, it’s common fucking sense, son. We need to figure out why so many citizens are turning their backs on their countries and becoming radicals. If not, none of these ridiculous preventative measures will have any type of effect. Shit, more people will die and all we’ll do is argue about the root cause in the media. Ultimately, nothing will get accomplished, man.

In the end, these are scary times, son. The problem is, if we don’t come up with real solutions now, the times will only get scarier. Now, instead of focusing so much on what other countries are doing, can we pay attention to our own people? Ok, thanks. LC out.
