Alabama & Georgia Have Lost Their Abortion-Hating Minds

So, for the life of me, I’ll never understand why our legislative entities are so hell bent on policing a woman’s body. Like, they’ll gladly cut access to Planned Parenthood and various social programs, but a woman better not DARE make a decision about what to do with her own uterus. All I can say is, Georgia and Alabama have lost their cotdamn minds, son. The truth is, it’s a dangerous fucking time to be a woman in America, man.

Ok, for those who missed it, both Georgia and Alabama have passed some frightening legislation on abortion. Now, let’s start with Georgia, fam. To begin, the state’s “fetal heartbeat” law will make it illegal for a woman to get an abortion after six weeks. Here’s the thing: a lot of women don’t even know they’re pregnant at the six-week mark. Meaning, this law doesn’t give women a chance to make an informed decision, bruh. Essentially, this is as close to an abortion ban that Georgia could pass, son.

In addition, this law gives the authorities the right to investigate a woman who has miscarried. Wait, let me say that again, man. Listen, if a woman has a miscarriage, the fucking police will now have the jurisdiction to investigate her. Like, that’s fucking insane, fam! Women are literally being turned into criminals for their own bodies, bruh. Honestly, I’m fucking scared for them, son.

Now, let’s talk about Alabama. So, unlike Georgia, Alabama just flat out said that women can’t have abortions. Well, unless there’s a “health risk.” To make matters worse, a few lawmakers tried to add exceptions for rape and incest and those provisions were shot down, man. So, let me get this straight, fam. A woman could literally be sexually assaulted, but held in violation of the law for not wanting to have the baby. My God, women are becoming prisoners to their own fucking bodies, fam. Frankly, I legit don’t know what else to say, bruh.

In the end, I see where all of this is going, son. Real talk, the proponents in Alabama are banking on this law reaching the Supreme Court, man. Ultimately, they’re trying to get Roe v. Wade overturned. The sad part is, at the rate things are going right now, that shit might actually happen, fam. At the end of the day, I honestly hope I’m wrong, bruh. All I know is, we can’t rest on our laurels, brethren. The fight is here and every voice is needed. That is all. LC out.

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.

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.

Police Only Kill Black People

Look, there are times when a story is so wild, I don’t even have the wherewithal to get mad, son. Like, sometimes I’m way too shocked to even be angry, man. All I know is, this is one of those times, fam. On the real, officers like Greg Abbott are why Black people don’t trust the police. Ultimately, I don’t give a fuck about context, bruh. His comments are an indictment of how the police view Black life.

Now, for those who missed it, back in July 2016, Abbott pulled a woman over for a DUI. During their exchange, Abbott asked the woman to pick up her cell phone. She resisted and said that she was afraid to move because she’s “seen way too many videos of cops.” In response, Abbott said “but, you’re not Black. Remember, we only shoot Black people. We only kill Black people, right? All the videos you’ve seen, have you seen the Black people get killed?

Fast forward to now, since the dash cam video was released, Abbott’s proponents have tried to do damage control. Lance LoRusso, Abbott’s lawyer, claimed that the comment was taken out of context and the officer was only trying to “de-escalate” the situation. First off, as Black people are fully aware, cops don’t know how to de-escalate situations. Second, if that was really the case, why the FUCK was that Abbott’s go-to move?! Since when is Black death something to joke about? When did the mutilation of our bodies become sarcastic fodder? Man, get the FUCK outta here, son!

Listen, Black people have a REAL fear of the police, fam. Hell, I’ve even detailed my own issues with the cops on this very site. Time after time after time, we have to watch footage of Black people being killed with no respect and no regard. What kind of animal would find humor in that, bruh?! Shit, keeping it a buck, I don’t even believe Abbott was joking, son. Honestly, he knows good and well that cops ALWAYS get away with murdering minorities. Frankly, he just felt comfortable enough to say what he said, man.

In the end, fuck the police, fam! Once again, the Boys in Blue have showed themselves, people. Ultimately, Black people don’t mean SHIT to the officers who are supposed to protect EVERYONE! All in all, our pain is their pleasure and our sorrow is their joy. By and by, I don’t even know what else to say here, man. That’s all I’ve got for today. *Sigh* LC out.

A Letter To People Who Regret Voting For Donald Trump

Dear Regretful Donald Trump Voters,

I’ve never been one to hold back or mince my words, so I’ll just get straight to the point. If you already regret voting for Trump, I don’t feel sorry for you. Sounds harsh, but I wholeheartedly mean that. If you’re one of the people who has suddenly realized Trump is a con artist, I have no sympathy for you. This man showed you who he was the entire election and you refused to believe him. So, every terrible thing he does from here on out is on YOUR head.

Look, at this point, I’m not even going to reiterate all of the awful things he’s said or done. I’ve done that enough times on this blog. However; let’s talk about all of the promises he made to YOU and already backtracked on.

First, there was all of the bullshit he said about Hillary Clinton. For the entire duration of his campaign, Trump claimed he was going to lock Clinton up for her “crimes.” What were her crimes exactly? Having a private email server. Regardless of the fact the FBI determined she had broken no laws, Trump still asserted that he was coming for her head. Now, since all of you Clinton-haters LOVED the idea of putting her in an orange jumpsuit, you flocked to the orange-faced clown. With all of that being said, what does he do when he wins? Completely abandon the notion of pursuing any charges against her. One point for you Trump supporters.

Next, there was his stance on Obamacare. For YEARS, he railed about how much of a failure the ACA was. His entire healthcare platform was built around repealing the law and replacing it with something “better.” In any case, just a few days after being elected, Trump talked about possibly keeping parts of Obamacare. Then, he switched course and said the law was going to be repealed and replaced simultaneously.

Now, here’s the problem: not only do your Republican reps not have a replacement plan, but they don’t even have enough votes to pass anything at all. It takes 60 votes to push a new plan through the Senate and the GOP only has 52 seats. Do you see the issue here? Once again, Trump made a promise he can’t possibly keep. Not to mention, after this past December‘s ACA enrollment period, the states with the highest coverage are the ones that voted for Trump. Are you guys really that stupid? I’ll just take that as a yes, son.

Ultimately, you guys are getting what you asked for. You asked for a liar to be your president and you got one. Let’s see if all of his billionaire cabinet friends will help drain that swamp for you. Good luck suffering through the mess you caused. I’m out.

Sincerely,

Your friendly neighborhood LC
