Drake Is Right About The Grammys

So, I won’t lie, son. As an aspiring musician, I would love to win a Grammy one day. On the real, I’m not going to pretend like I wouldn’t want that gold trophy on my mantle, man. However, I’m not one of those artists who believes that my art would be defined by a metal gramophone. With that being said, I 1000% agree with Drake’s acceptance speech. Real talk, as long as artists have dedicated fans, they’ve already won, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Drake actually showed up to the Grammy Awards last night. Anyway, his song “God’s Plan” ended up winning the award for Best Rap Song. Now, when Drake went up onstage to get his trophy, he kept it super funky with everyone watching. Essentially, he told all of the artists that awards like this don’t define them. According to Aubrey, as long as musicians have fans willing to support their songs, they don’t need validation from antiquated institutions. All I know is, he’s absolutely right, bruh.

Listen, the Grammys have notoriously gotten shit wrong when it comes to Hip-Hop and R&B, son. I mean, Herbie Hancock is a damn legend, but there’s no way his album was better than Kanye West’s Graduation, man. There’s no way that Taylor Swift’s 1989 was better than Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. Shit, even Adele knew that 25 wasn’t better than Beyoncé’s Lemonade, fam. She basically said as much during her acceptance speech, bruh. The point is, artists, especially Black artists, need to realize that these awards don’t make or break them. All in all, they’re winners regardless, brethren.

In the end, the Grammys ain’t low for cutting Drake’s speech short, son. Yeah, the committee tried to say they thought he was finished, but we don’t believe that, man. Ultimately, Drake used his platform to say some real shit and the powers that be didn’t like it, fam. By and by, he’s still the biggest artist in the world and there’s nothing they can do about it, bruh. At the end of the day, folks ain’t gonna stop bumping Drake because the Grammys are mad at him, people. It is what it is. That is all. LC out.

P.S. I’m going to try my best to leave Jennifer Lopez alone, son. All I can say is, I don’t know what Motown she ever watched, man. The fact is, I wasn’t here for her “Jenny From The Block” remix of Berry Gordy’s brainchild, fam. And I’m a Bronx dude saying that, bruh. *Sigh* Good day.

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.

We Never Knew Kanye West

Look, let me keep it a buck, son. Everything we ever thought we knew about Kanye West was a lie, man. The image he portrayed on all of his early albums was a lie, fam. On the real, I honestly believe we’re seeing the real him right now. For me, it’s no coincidence that when he became wealthy he began rejecting everything he previously stood for. Shit, he might be the biggest example of who I was talking about in my “Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’” post, bruh. All in all, his White House meeting with Donald Trump was one of the most damaging things I’ve ever seen, folks.

Now, like I’ve said before, my real beef with Kanye is his gross lack of knowledge. Like, he picks the most public places and displays an INCREDIBLE misunderstanding of the issues. Real talk, when it comes to all of the fuckery he said yesterday, I don’t even know where to begin, son. I mean, we could talk about his thoughts on North Korea. He gave Trump credit for “solving” Barack Obama‘s biggest problem, despite the fact that North Korea hasn’t actually given up ANY of their nukes yet. Hell, they don’t even have a timeline for shutting down their damn nuclear program yet, man!

Moving on, we could talk about Kanye’s misguided views of Black people on welfare. Shit, can someone please tell him that White women represent the largest number of welfare recipients? Like, these are facts, brethren. Next, we could talk about the fact that he likened his MAGA hat to a Superman cape. Even worse, he said he couldn’t get behind Hillary Clinton‘s “I’m With Her” slogan because he was a dude. So, his “manhood” wouldn’t allow him to support a woman? He needed “male energy” in order to feel good about himself? My God, his biological father has fucking failed him, bruh. That’s sexism on a baffling level, people.

From there, we could talk about how he brought superstition into his analysis of the 13th Amendment. Son, what the fuck does a building not having a 13th floor have to do with the government’s “right” to treat prisoners like slaves? Sheesh, did I really hear him say that, man? What the fuck is actually going on here?! Lastly, we could talk about his “victim mentality” idea. Essentially, he used this idiotic phrase to recant everything he’s ever said about race relations in this country. Honestly, I think this was the worst part of the entire meeting, fam.

*Sigh* Kanye essentially blamed a “victim mentality” for why he previously criticized George W. Bush. He blamed a “victim mentality” for why Black people are upset about police brutality. Look, I guess getting murdered by the state with no reprisal has nothing to do with why we’re mad, bruh. Listen, this fool really brought up Black-on-Black crime for why we shouldn’t be upset with police. Newsflash, Kanye: ALL races are predominantly killed by members of the same fucking race! He would know that if he EVER read anything! Fuck, man! I didn’t think this dude could still make me angry, but I’m fucking livid! Like, he went to the cotdamn White House and said all that bullshit, son!

In my eyes, one of the main issues here is Kanye’s wealth. Only a wealthy person can afford the luxury of no longer identifying. Now, let me be clear, man: I’m not saying that money is a bad thing. Hell, I want a lot of it too, fam. However, Kanye wasn’t talking this shit when he was just a dude from Chicago. Frankly, he got rich and COMPLETELY forgot about the trial and tribulations of everyday people. He no longer has to be affected by the stop-and-frisk tactics that Trump wants to enact. He no longer has to worry about possibly dying at a traffic stop. He no longer has to worry about being mistreated by the justice system. So, he no longer gives a flying fuck about our pain, bruh.

In the end, the line in the sand has been drawn, son. Before, I was on some “I can’t fuck with Kanye” shit. Now, I’m on some “I can’t even fuck with you if you fuck with Kanye” shit. Ultimately, the music doesn’t matter, man. By and by, I don’t give a fuck if he drops another classic tomorrow. At the end of the day, I CANNOT and WILL NOT support a man who tries so hard to disparage the people who gave him a career and a platform. So, once and for all, fuck Kanye West, fam! That is all. LC out.

Uh, Shout-out To Taylor Swift

So, I won’t lie, son. It’s super easy to hate on Taylor Swift, man. I mean, she’s made a career out of dissing ex-boyfriends and being fake humble, fam. All I can say is, that ain’t the type of vibe I regularly endorse, bruh. In any case, I have to give credit where credit is due. Normally, when someone has a platform as huge as hers, they steer clear of ALL political discussions. However, instead of running from her influence, Swift has decided to use her name in a positive way. All in all, salute to Swift, brethren!

Ok, for those who missed it, Swift took to Instagram to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Now, while her tax bracket might suggest some Republican ties, she actually took the time to endorse some Democratic candidates. Then again, it’s not necessarily about whether she’s a Democrat or a Republican. Frankly, she simply doesn’t bang with Marsha Blackburn, a GOP candidate running for Senate in Tennessee. Anyway, instead of just being a contrarian for the sake of it, Swift actually explained why she doesn’t rock with Blackburn. For one, she pointed to Blackburn’s views on women and gay rights. Furthermore, Swift actually brought up systemic racism in America, something I NEVER thought I’d see from her.

Moving on, Swift gave her support for Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. Needless to say, a lot of people, including myself, were shocked that she made such a public declaration. Shit, in 2018, who would’ve thought that Swift would be out here talking about racism while Kanye West is busy giving Donald Trump a dick-flute solo? *Sigh* These are strange fucking times we live in, son. Strange times indeed.

In the end, shout-out to Taylor Swift, man. Hell, even though I’ve never given her any props before, I guess there’s a first time for everything, fam. Ultimately, I agree most with one point she made: “vote based on who most closely represents your values.” By and by, that doesn’t have shit to do with party lines, bruh. Now, everybody, get out there and vote on November 6! That is all. LC out.

This Is Why Kanye West Offends Me

So, let me keep it a buck, son. On the real, I never thought I’d write about Kanye West again, man. I mean, at this point, I’ve said damn near everything I could possibly say, fam. But, I’ve learned something new from his most recent press run, bruh: his support of Donald Trump is not the main thing that irks me, people. Like, I have the ability to understand someone’s point of view and still vehemently disagree with them. However, that’s my problem, folks. Kanye literally doesn’t have a point and his lack of knowledge is INCREDIBLY irritating.

Ok, before I continue, let me explain what I mean when I say that Kanye doesn’t know shit about shit. Now, take people like Ann Coulter and Tomi Lahren. Both of these women have the capacity to speak in coherent phrases and sentences. It just so happens that I hate EVERYTHING that comes out of their respective mouths. On the other hand, Kanye is completely unable to construct a logical argument for his beliefs. Shit, he’s been wearing a MAGA hat for about a year and he still can’t explicitly explain why he supports Trump. All I know is, “dragon energy” isn’t a thing and Kanye’s too grown to be this fucking elementary.

As another example, just the other day, he was walking around wearing his beloved MAGA hat and a Colin Kaepernick sweater. Well, what’s the science behind that, Kanye? No, “unity” and “love” is not a good enough reason for this display. Hell, Trump has used his platform on NUMEROUS occasions to take aim directly at Kaepernick. So, wearing both articles of clothing does nothing to improve relations, son. Listen, if Kanye were able to clearly outline his thoughts, I’d at least respect him. I would still hate everything about it, but at least I’d understand what’s going on in his head. As this moment, he’s a walking symbol of confusion and he really, REALLY needs to disappear, man.

In the end, go away, Kanye! Ultimately, I don’t want that Yandhi album and I don’t want that Good Ass Job album. By and by, Chance the Rapper should’ve left that idea in the mid-2000s where it originated. At the end of the day, I’m beyond tired of the stupidity, fam. All I can say is, Kanye needs to either read a book or just fall into the Bermuda Triangle. *Sigh* How about both, bruh? 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.
