White On White Crime: Eminem vs. Machine Gun Kelly

So, let me get straight to the point, son. On the real, I have NO idea what songs people are listening to, man. I mean, there are really folks out there who believe Machine Gun Kelly beat Eminem? Like, they really believe “Rap Devil” is better than “KILLSHOT?” Really?! Shit, if that’s the case, I’d like someone to clarify what the criteria is, fam. Is it based on lyrics? Is it based on hooks? Is it based on the beat? Seriously, I’d like someone to explain this shit to me because there is NO way MGK got the upper hand here, bruh.

Ok, before I continue, let me make something clear, son: I’m actually an MGK fan. Real talk, I think he’s an under appreciated artist, man. Frankly, he’s a great live performer and he can actually rap. Keeping it a buck, I was bumping the hell out of his Bloom album when it dropped, fam. Side note, everyone should go listen to “Golden God,” bruh. That song is fucking tough, people! In any case, I just wanted to make my stance on MGK known, folks. I don’t want anyone to think I’m just being a hater here. With that being said, Em cleaned him up on “KILLSHOT.”

Listen, let’s go through some of the lyrics on “Rap Devil,” son. Are folks trying to tell me that “your beard is weird” lyrics are hurting Eminem? Are folks trying to tell me that bars about sweatsuits and “corny hats” are hurting Eminem? Man, get the fuckity-fuck outta here! Look, do I think “KILLSHOT” is Em’s best diss? Hell no! However, lines like “the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed” are better than ANYTHING in MGK’s song. For God‘s sake, do lyrics matter at all anymore? Is comprehension that low, fam? All in all, a cool hook and an 808-laced beat can’t fight the obvious, bruh. It just is what it is.

In the end, this is just my opinion, son. Ultimately, I have a right to think that motherfuckers are crazy, man. At the end of the day, people can decide for themselves, fam. With that being said, both diss tracks are below, bruh. By and by, I love Rap beef, people! More bars, more insults, more drama! Let’s do this! That is all. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘Here & Now’ & ‘Legacy’

Ok, before anybody asks, no, I’m not restarting New Music Fridays per se. In actuality, today’s post was inspired by my recent show, son. Now, I only had a ten-minute set, but I was able to squeeze three songs in there, man. In any case, for those who are familiar with my music, “Two Eyes” was the first song I performed. However, the last two joints I rocked out to were new, fam. So, I feel like it’s only right for me to share them with everyone, bruh.

With that being said, everybody can listen to “Here & Now” and “Legacy” below, son. As always, the songs can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. All I can say is, it’s good to be back in my element, man. Keeping it a buck, based on the amount of time I’ve been away, I was nervous before I got onstage, fam. But, once I got up there, I felt like I was at home, bruh. Shout-out to all of the good people who came to see me. All in all, there will be more shows and more music in the near future, folks. Fuck with your boy! 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.

RIP Mac Miller

So, let me keep it a buck, son. Listen, I’m not about to sit here and pretend like I was a Mac Miller fan from day one. To be real, I became a fan of his music after he dropped his Macadelic mixtape in 2012. As a matter of fact, that mixtape along with his Watching Movies with the Sound Off album made me a believer, man. From there, I was onboard, fam. I was onboard for his clever quips, his production skills and his live instrumentation. With that being said, it’s a damn shame that he succumbed to his vices, bruh. All in all, Rest In Peace to Miller, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mac Miller passed away on Friday. At only 26 years old, the Pittsburgh rapper died from an apparent drug overdose. Now, for anyone who’s followed his story, he’s had a long history with abuse, son. Apparently, his drug use is one of the main reasons why Ariana Grande left him. In any case, it seemed like he was trying to deal with his issues, man. I mean, judging from his new Swimming album, Miller knew he had some demons to deal with, fam. Because of this, it’s extra sad that his internal strife got the best of him, bruh.

Listen, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, son: everybody needs to leave drugs the fuck alone, man! I mean, cotdamn, fam! How many more people have to die before we realize this shit is for the birds, bruh? Honestly, when does addiction ever end positively, folks? Seriously, the only favorable outcome is when users quit the shit, brethren. At this point, I can’t even count the number of musicians who have succumbed to illicit substances. All I wanna know is, when will enough be enough, people? When will everyone understand that this never ends well for anyone?

In the end, RIP to Mac Miller, son. Ultimately, he died waaaaaaay too fucking young, man. By and by, he had every reason to live, fam. Look, despite everything he’s already accomplished, he still could’ve done a lot more, bruh. At the end of the day, no one’s life is over at 26, folks. *Sigh* Fuck, man! LC out.

P.S. Real talk, everyone needs to leave Ariana Grande alone, son. Shit, berating her in her Instagram comments makes no sense, people. Look, I’m a Miller fan, but his death isn’t her fault, man. Now, I wouldn’t be surprised if their breakup had an adverse affect on him. But, she didn’t put drugs in his system, fam. Listen, we can be sad about Miller’s death and still hold him accountable for his actions, bruh. So, quit the nonsense, folks. That is all.

Hi, My Name Is LC & I Have A Show On Saturday

So, let me keep this brief, folks. As the title says, I have a show this coming Saturday. Now, those who know me or are familiar with my blog know that I’m a musician at heart. Hell, I spent most of 2017 putting out songs through my New Music Fridays thingamajig. In any case, there was one piece that was still missing, son: performing. On the real, I spent most of my late teens/early 20s on stages and I got away from that, man. Well, that ends this weekend, fam. The boy LC is back and ready to get down with the shits, bruh!

With that being said, let’s get the proceedings proceeding, son. So, for anyone in New York City, I’m performing at The West End this Saturday at 10:30 PM. Doors open at 10:00 PM and I have an 8-minute set. The plan is to knock out three songs, so it’s enough time to get a little vibe going, man. Anyway, if anyone is down to roll through, click here for tickets. We can all get hammered after I hit the stage, fam. Furthermore, shout-out to Scott Morris and Mor.Bookings for giving the dude an opportunity, bruh.

In the end, that’s all I’ve got, son. Shit, let’s have a good time, man! See everyone on Saturday! LC out.

50 Cent & Floyd Mayweather Are Out Here Wilin’

So, to be honest, I have no idea why 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather are beefing, son. At this point, I can’t keep track of their issues with each other. I mean, I can vaguely remember 50 being upset with Mayweather for renigging on making The Money Team a joint business venture. However, I’m not sure about any of that, man. All I know is, this conflict has officially gotten out of hand, fam. On the real, if anyone has been paying attention to social media, it’s clear that these dudes will stoop to any level just to diss one another.

Ok, for those who missed it, there’s A TON of fuckery in the air. Now, I’m not sure how the drama got reignited, but 50 and Mayweather have been going at it on Instagram. The latest battle between the two began when 50 made fun of the fact that a woman named Bad Medina left Mayweather. This caused Mayweather to “write” an entire diatribe about how 50 is a broke, herpes-infested snitch who hasn’t had a hit in years. Side note, I put the word “write” in quotations because we ALL know that Mayweather isn’t the strongest reader. Hell, that’s one of 50’s most consistent jokes about him, bruh.

Now, here’s where shit starts to go off of the rails, son. Look, it’s one thing to call each other names, but it’s another thing to bring up family issues and dead associates, man. So, after their initial back-and-forth, 50 went on to claim that Mayweather was the reason that rapper Earl Hayes murdered actress Stephanie Moseley and then killed himself. Originally, it was alleged that the Hit The Floor actress had an affair with Trey Songz and was confronted by Hayes about it. However, 50 suggested that Hayes actually confronted Mayweather on FaceTime about sleeping with Moseley before committing the murder-suicide.

To make matters worse, 50 then released a screenshot of a domestic violence police report against Mayweather. In the report, it details an incident where Koraun Mayweather, Floyd’s son, recounts a situation when Floyd assaulted the boy’s mother. All in all, I can’t believe this entire scenario has gone this far, fam. I mean, in all seriousness, what the fuck is wrong with 50 Cent, bruh?

Keeping it a buck, I really don’t see how 50 can justify any of this, son. Shit, what is there to gain from bringing up two dead people and a domestic violence victim? For the love of God, how fucking old are we, man?! 50 Cent is in his fucking 40’s, fam! Frankly, he’s too cotdamn old to be this immature, bruh. And for what? To win a fucking argument on social media? Good Lord, this is some of the dumbest and most reckless shit I’ve ever witness, people!

In the end, both of these dudes need to grow up, son. Ultimately, this brand of tomfoolery should not be on display for the world to witness. Then again, nothing I’ve said here will make a bit of difference, man. By and by, I used to be a 50 fan, but this is just who he is, fam. At the end of the day, I should be more shocked that I can still be shocked by his fuckery. 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.
