Protect Soulja Boy At All Costs

So, I’m going to keep this post short, son. The fact of the matter is, Soulja Boy is a national treasure and should be treated as such. I mean, “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” hit me on a philosophical level, man. All jokes aside, if anyone’s in a bad mood, just yell “watch me yuuuuu” and witness the world brighten up. With all of that being said, I’m thoroughly enjoying all of Soulja’s recent shenanigans, fam. All in all, the man just wants his respect, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Soulja Boy has been on a tear, son. First, he took to Instagram to proclaim that he had the biggest comeback in 2018. Frankly, he wasn’t trying to hear shit about Tyga or Meek Mill, man. Next, he went to The Breakfast Club to further dig into his bag, fam. Shit, who cares about Tyga’s collabo with Offset? Big Draco has MAD records with Migos. Who cares about Meek’s former beef with Drake? Soulja went to war with Chris Brown, bruh. Like, what else do folks need to know, brethren? All I can say is, Famous Dex better lay low. He doesn’t want that Stacks On Deck smoke, people.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, son. Ultimately, this post pales in comparison to Soulja’s actual rants, son. By and by, everyone can check out ALL of the footage below. Real talk, I made my wife watch his IG rant last night, man. At the end of the day, that’s how hilarious it was, fam. Anyway, here’s some tomfoolery to lighten up everyone’s Friday. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I know I’m being an ass, but Soulja Boy really did give a lot of new artists the internet blueprint, son. Hell, he’s legitimately the first rapper that I remember blowing up online, man. So, all hail Big Draco! Good day.

Jay-Z’s Verse On Meek Mill’s Album Is Incredible

On the real, I don’t know where to begin, son. I mean, today’s post could either be three sentences or three novels, man. Real talk, Jay-Z BLACKS OUT on Meek Mill‘s “What’s Free.” Like, Mill’s Championships album just came out today and I’ve already played this particular record like 11 times, fam. All in all, from the subject matter to the wordplay to the flow, Hov is reminding everybody why he’s a fucking legend (and the best rapper ever, in my opinion).

Now, keeping it a buck, I’m not sure I can fit all of my thoughts in one article, bruh. Shit, Hov has so many gems in this verse that I don’t know how to kick my analysis off, son. Like, we could talk about his indictment of anyone pitting him against Kanye West. We could talk about his continued championing of Black ownership. We could talk about his criticism of the music industry structure. Hell, we could talk about the metaphors and the flow. All in all, Jay checked all of the fucking boxes with this verse, man. But, don’t take my word for it, fam. Everyone can listen to the song below. At the end of the day, Mill put out a dope album AND let Jay go napalm on a record. Needless to say, I’m with all of it, bruh. That is all. LC out.

I Need More Drake & Meek Mill Songs

So, before anyone says I’m fake, let me get these thoughts out of the way, son: I still believe Meek Mill lost to Drake and I’m still judging Drake for not responding to Pusha T. Ok, now that we’ve covered that, I want more records from Drake and Meek, man. I mean, I’ve always been a fan of both artists. In addition, they make great records together. With that being said, now that they’ve made amends, I need some new “I’m young and I’m rich” type music from them, fam. All in all, let her games begin, bruh!

Ok, for those who missed it, Drake and Meek publicly made up with each other. During a show at TD Garden in Boston, Drake brought Meek onstage to do the Dreams and Nightmares intro. Now, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain the history between these two artists. Shit, we were all paying attention when they were beefing with one another, son. Regardless, after Meek’s battles with the justice system and Drake’s continued success, they’ve managed to put their issues aside, man. Keeping it a buck, I love a good Rap battle, but it’s good to see these dudes dead the petty shit, fam.

In the end, ain’t much else to say here, bruh. Ultimately, I’m just here for the music, son. Now, in case anyone forgot about the fire they made together, I’m posting “Amen” and “R.I.C.O.” below, man. By and by, both songs are STILL jams, fam. At the end of the day, that’s all that really matters, folks. That is all. LC out.

So… Eminem Is Pissed, Huh?

So, let me begin this post by saying that Eminem is my number-three favorite rapper of all time. Side note, Jay-Z will always be number-one to me. Also, Kanye West is my number-two, but everyone knows how disappointed I am in him, son. With that being said, allow me to keep it a buck for a second, man. *Sigh* In my eyes, every Em album after The Eminem Show has been trash, fam. That’s right, I’m talking about Encore, Relapse, Recovery, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 AND Revival. I mean, Em will always be able to rap, but those albums just didn’t do it for me, bruh. All I know is, I’m not alone in this assessment. In any case, based on his surprise Kamikaze album, Em took the Revival criticism personally, folks.

Look, I’m going to be brief, son. Eminem disses EVERYBODY on Kamikaze! Like, EVERYBODY, man! Frankly, I don’t have the brain power to link every name to the specific song they’re mentioned in. All I can say is, there are a laundry list of digs on this record, fam. Shit, just off of memory, I remember hearing him diss Donald Trump, Drake, Charlamagne Tha God, Joe Budden, DJ Akademiks, Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Yachty, Lil Pump, Lil Xan and Lord Jamar. Hell, I know there’s more, but my brain can only hold so much information, bruh.

As it stands, most of these disses revolve around either hating Mumble Rap or hating anyone who didn’t like Revival. Listen, Em is my guy, but Revival was wack, son. Real talk, instead of dwelling on that, he should’ve just focused on his next effort. Then again, maybe he needed this kind of energy, man. On the real, this is the best Eminem album is years, fam. For whatever reason, an angry Em over Mike Will Made It and Boi-1da beats is a good thing, bruh. It forces Em to switch up the flow he’s been using for the last damn decade.

In the end, I’ll take it, son. Ultimately, this won’t go down as his best work, but it’s a welcome surprise to me, man. By and by, I wasn’t expecting anything from an Em album. At the end of the day, it’s good to hear him with some semblance of passion, fam. For the record, though, Revival still sucks, Em. Sorry not sorry. LC out.

P.S. It’s super weird that Em threw shots at Drake when “Not Alike” is a BLATANT rip-off of “Look Alive.” Listen, I know that Tay Keith produced both songs, but damn, son! At least TRY to hide the bite, man! Good day.

Drake Owes Shiggy Some Money

So, Drake‘s “In My Feelings” is number-six on the Billboard Hot 100, huh? Look, Drake breaks records everyday, so I’m not going to pretend like that song wouldn’t have been a smash, son. However, homie DEFINITELY owes Shoker, better known as Shiggy from The Shiggy Show, some bread, man. On the real, Shiggy almost single-handedly made that track hotter with his #DoTheShiggy movement. All I know is, this #InMyFeelingsChallenge started an entire wave, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it… wait, nah, bruh. At this point, I’m pretty sure EVERYONE on social media has seen some variation of this challenge, son. In any case, about a week and a half ago, Shiggy started a dance craze on his Instagram page. Basically, a simple dance routine inspired a whole heap of celebrities to join in on the fun. As of right now, I can’t even count the number of people who have followed the trend, man. From Odell Beckham Jr. to Ciara to Drake himself, damn near everybody has embraced Shiggy’s moves, fam.

Listen, all I’m saying is, Shiggy definitely gave Drake a boost, bruh. I mean, the song probably would have been a hit in the long-run. However, its popularity absolutely skyrocketed as a result of this viral movement, son. With that being said, Drake owes Shiggy something, man. Shit, at the bare minimum, Drake should put him in the video, fam. Hell, based on the fact that Drake just did the dance at Wireless Festival in London, we all know he’s aware of Shiggy’s fingerprints, folks. All in all, Shiggy deserves SOME type of recognition, people.

In the end, shout-out to Shiggy for going viral, son. Ultimately, I need all of my New York brethren to win, man. By and by, I’m still not the biggest fan of the song, but I respect the movement, fam. Shit, I respect the fact that social media can be this powerful, bruh. At the end of the day, folks can become a phenomenon from an app, people. I mean, it’s fucking crazy, folks. That is all. LC out.

Is ‘8 Out of 10’ Supposed To Be A Response?

Nah, son. I can’t let this shit rock, man. I mean, is this what battling has come to, fam? A rapper ducking DIRECT smoke and going back to subliminal dissing? Look, I’ve always acknowledged that I’m a Drake fan. But, I can’t fuck with how he’s handled this Pusha T situation, bruh. On the real, someone get “8 Out of 10” the fuck outta here, brethren! All in all, I can’t respect the jabs he’s throwing when the battle is already waaaay past that.

Ok, as I’m sure everyone knows, Drake just dropped his Scorpion album today. Now, for those who don’t know, the record is a double album. Basically, the “A Side” is more Rap-influenced, while the “B Side” is more R&B-influenced. Side note, am I the only one who noticed that Big K.R.I.T. already treads similar water with his 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time album? Yeah, Krizzle doesn’t have a straight R&B side, but he definitely breaks up the harder songs from the more melodic songs.

Anyway, on my first listen to Scorpion, I came across a song called “8 Out of 10.” In it, Drake is definitely throwing shots at a couple of people. Now, based on some of the bars, I can tell that he’s trying to get back at Pusha. Shit, when Drake says “the only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin’ to,” he’s definitely talking to Pusha. When he says “Max said they only blessed when they attached to you,” he’s definitely talking about Pusha. Here’s the thing, son: these jabs ain’t good enough now, man!

Look, here’s why I don’t like how Drake has approached this beef. Real talk, if he ignored Pusha from the jump, then all of this might have been acceptable. However, Drake jumped in the ring with him, fam. Keeping it a buck, when Drake put out “Duppy Freestyle,” he was basically saying that he wanted all of the smoke, bruh. So, if that’s the case, he can’t go back into the shadows when shit gets real, son. Hell, when “The Story of Adidon” dropped, there was radio silence from Drake. Like, instead of a diss track, J. Prince was going around copping pleas for Drake and Drake himself addressed the blackface issue.

With all of that being, I can’t accept these subliminal disses now. If the beef is supposed to be over, like J. Prince said, then let it go, man. All I know is, Drake can’t engage with Pusha, duck the heat and THEN throw subtle shots after that. All I can say is, that’s not the Hip-Hop I want to see, fam. Either it’s beef or it’s not, bruh. There is no in-between, folks.

In the end, I’m still digesting this Scorpion album, son. I mean, it’s 25 fucking songs, man! Ultimately, with my schedule, it’s going to take me forever to get through this shit, fam. By and by, I’m still a Drake fan, bruh. But, I just don’t like the way he handled this shit, people. At the end of the day, none of this shit is going to matter to the DrakeHive. Look, homie can do no wrong in their eyes, brethren. It just is what it is. LC out.

Is The Drake & Pusha T Battle Already Over?

So, I won’t lie, son. Unless Drake puts out a diss to Pusha T this week, this will probably be the last time I speak on this subject. Now, to be fair, I’m only rehashing this topic because of a recent interview with J. Prince, Rap-A-Lot Records founder and Houston legend. Anyway, according to Prince, he made an “OG call” and told Drake not to respond to Pusha. All I know is, if this is true, these dudes just ruined a perfectly good Hip-Hop beef, man. *Sigh* It’s only Rap music, fam. Just fucking rap!

Ok, before I continue, let me give everyone a brief recap of Prince’s background. Now, as I stated above, Prince founded the legendary Rap-A-Lot Records. So, he’s responsible for bringing artists like Scarface and Devin the Dude to the forefront. In any case, his son, Jas Prince, is the one who discovered Drake on MySpace. In addition, Jas is the one who brought Drake to Lil Wayne. Needless to say, the Prince family has been very instrumental in Drake’s career, bruh.

With all of that being said, I can understand why Drake might take Prince’s advice to dead the beef with Pusha. However, it’s a fucking rap battle, son! Drake willfully engaged with Pusha and Pusha got the upper hand on him. All in all, it’s only right for him to respond and try to rectify the damage that Pusha has done to his name. I mean, that’s the whole fucking point of a battle, man! The entire objective is for rappers to go at each other until there’s a winner. Frankly, Prince is only calling the beef a “pigpen” thing because Drake took an L. Shit, no one was saying that when he was roasting Meek Mill, fam.

In the end, I just want to hear good bars, bruh. Side note, I don’t know which rumor is worse, son: the idea that Prince killed the beef or the rumor that Drake already recorded a response with help from Wayne. Look, ain’t no getting backup in this shit, man. On the real, this is mano a mano shit, fam. In any case, people are taking all of this way too seriously, folks. Ultimately, just let the men battle, people. This is precisely what Hip-Hop was founded on. That is all. LC out.
