Don’t Use ASAP Rocky For Politics

*Sigh* We live in a weird fucking time, son. Like, if we’re being honest, any and every situation can and will be politicized. I mean, just take a look at the behind-the-scenes tomfoolery between SwedenASAP Rocky and Donald Trump. The way I see it, a serious situation is being used to gain points in the political landscape. All in all, the whole scenario is fucking ridiculous, man.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Rocky is in some shit, fam. Now, earlier in July, Rocky was arrested for assaulting Mustafa Jafari in Stockholm. Moving on, the Swedish government is making it seem like Rocky and company just started a brawl and beat up innocent people. In reality, based on video footage, it appears that Jafari was following and harassing Rocky before his entourage put the beats on Jafari. In that case, it seems like Jafari might’ve deserved it, bruh.

From that moment, there have been a lot of conflicting reports about Rocky’s captivity. Shit, there have been rumors that he’s being held in inhumane conditions and debate over how much time he could potentially get. In addition, as a sign of solidarity, a number of musicians have refused to play shows in Sweden. Now, this leads us to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

So, the West family decided to reach out to Trump and see if he’d be able to release Rocky. Now, in customary fashion, Trump hit up Twitter to tell Swedish authorities that they should free Rocky and focus on their own crime. In turn, Prime Minster Stefan Löfven politely told Trump to go fuck himself. With all of that being said, now the two leaders are having a public back and forth where Trump is telling Sweden that they “let our African American Community down in the United States.”

Fam, what the fuck is going on right now? Like, I have sooooo many conflicting thoughts about this entire ordeal. On one hand, I’ve previously been very critical about Rocky’s stances on race, politics and social issues. Real talk, I stand by everything I’ve said, brethren. However, I’m also a firm believer that a harasser deserves to get their ass kicked. So, Rocky has no business being locked up, son. Furthermore, it’s absolutely ridiculous that this is the stand that Trump decides to take. He regularly vilifies Black and Brown people in this country, but has the audacity to talk about another nation “letting us down.” For God‘s sake, what fucking world are we living in, man?

The fact is, Trump is only engaging in this situation for brownie points, fam (pun intended). Hell, if he were able to free Rocky, he’d just throw it in our face and ignore alllllllll of the other fuckity-fuck shit he does. All I know is, Rocky should absolutely be released, but he definitely doesn’t need to be used as a pawn in a vicious political game. Honestly, it’s absolutely gross that it’s even come to this point, bruh. Seriously, this country’s shenanigans never ceases to amaze me, son.

In the end, I’m just exhausted of the political trickery and positioning, man. Ultimately, a man’s freedom shouldn’t be used to further an image or an agenda, fam. By and by, I’d legitimately question the intelligence of anyone who doesn’t see the play here. At the end of the day, the prospect of freeing one man won’t undo all of the regular mashugana that Trump engages in, bruh. That is all. LC out.

What Does ‘Self-Made’ Mean?

So, contrary to what some people may think, I’m not about to hate on Kylie Jenner. On the real, I’m not even going to go in depth about how her appropriation of full lips is problematic as fuck. Instead, I want to talk about the idea of her being self-made. Look, I can’t front on anyone who’s on pace to be a billionaire, son. But, if Forbes or anyone else actually thinks she’s self-made, then they’re out of their cotdamn minds, man!

Listen, according to the dictionary, the word “self-made” means “having become successful or rich by one’s own efforts.” Shit, on NO planet does Jenner fit this criteria, fam. Shit, if we’re keeping score, her father is Caitlyn Jenner, her mother is Kris Jenner and her half-sister is Kim Kardashian. Furthermore, she’s been on a reality show since she was a child and she’s been rich her entire life. Frankly, she’s always had the access and the celebrity to be successful in life. Now, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have to work hard. But, if folks don’t believe that she has a MASSIVE leg up, then they’re fucking crazy, bruh!

Keeping it a buck, I really don’t think that wealthy people fully understand the benefits of being wealthy. Like, I remember when Donald Trump tried to downplay his father’s assistance by saying he got a “very, very small loan” from Fred Trump for a million dollars. Son, I don’t know ANYONE right now who could just give me a milly. Real talk, that’s not the way the vast majority of this country lives, man. So, the idea that any of these people are self-made is preposterous, fam. Now, as I stated before, that doesn’t mean that rich people don’t have to work to prosper. However, they’re already A LOT further in the race than the rest of us, bruh. It just is what it is.

In the end, congrats to Kylie, son. Ultimately, I’m not here to shit on anybody’s accomplishments, man. By and by, I just want to put this entire narrative into perspective, fam. At the end of the day, the Jenner’s did what any family is supposed to do: create opportunities for the next generation. In that regard, Kris and Caitlyn succeeded, bruh. All in all, I’ll let them cook for today, folks. Hell, I’ll probably go back to shitting on them tomorrow. That is all. LC out.

I’m Mad At Myself For Listening To ‘ye’

So, I’m a hypocrite, son. Like, my logical side knew better than to listen to ye, man. But, the voracious music-lover in me fell for the fucking okie-doke, fam. Despite all of Kanye West‘s nonsense, I still gave that fool 20 minutes of my time, bruh. *Sigh* And after all of that, the album wasn’t even good, people. All I know is, this is the time where I need to stop trying to separate the art from the artist, folks.

Ok, so, this post isn’t an album review, per se. On the real, this article is simply me rambling about how much of a clusterfuck this record is, son. I mean, it’s amazing how a 7-song album can still be disjointed and all over the place, man. Look, between the unnecessary beat changes, Kim Kardashian references and talk of killing someone, there’s no cohesion to this record, fam. Frankly, I’m amazed that he put out an album like this after nailing the production on Pusha T‘s Daytona. Then again, who the fuck knows what goes on in Kanye’s mind, bruh?

Now, besides the album sonics, I’m mad at myself for even giving ye the time of day, son. Listen, it’s no secret that I’m a HUGE Kanye West fan. However, at some point, enough has to be enough, man. Keeping it a buck, I’m not even sure if I want to keep listening to Pusha’s album, fam. Real talk, I don’t like the idea of putting ANY money in Kanye’s pocket, bruh. Shit, I’m not sure exactly how much money artists get some streaming, but it’s still more than he deserves right now, people. All I can say is, a dope beat from Kanye is not worth the tomfoolery and coonery that comes along with it.

In the end, I just needed to check myself, son. Ultimately, I’m choosing not to be a slave to my former appreciation of Kanye West. By and by, this is one of the ONLY times a Black person is choosing not to be slave, man. At the end of the day, as much as I love music, supporting him just isn’t worth it, fam. That is all. LC out.

‘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.

I’m Done With Kanye West

My Conflicted Thoughts On Kanye West’s Mental Health

Black Republicans Aren’t The Issue, Chance The Rapper

The Return Of Kanye West

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to Kanye West. I mean, on one hand, I hate everything he does outside of music. Hence my “I’m Done With Kanye West” post. However, that dude can do no wrong when it comes to these compositions, man. Keeping it a buck, outside of Prince and Michael Jackson, Kanye is my favorite musician ever. Yes, I said EVER, folks! With that being said, I’m fucking HYPED that he’s dropping new records, fam! All in all, June can’t come soon enough, bruh!

Ok, for those who missed it, Kanye has returned to Twitter with a vengeance, son. Look, over the last week or so, he’s been pontificating about the meaning of life and waxing poetically about the design of his clothes. More importantly, he’s been updating us about his musical progress. In any case, he just dropped a lot of bombshells on us about the upcoming schedule for G.O.O.D. Music. All I know is, my brain can’t handle the prospect of the awesomeness on the horizon, man.

So, where do we begin, fam? Ok, basically, from May 25 to June 22, Kanye is dropping a Pusha T album, a solo album, a joint album with KiD CuDi and a Teyana Taylor album. Furthermore, according to both Pusha and Taylor, he’s apparently producing everything. Side note, my guess is he’s really just executive producing their projects. But, if 2 Chainz is right and Kanye is back to making beats himself, I can’t wait to hear the final product, bruh! Anyway, THIS is what I want from Kanye West, son! Not that Kardashian bullshit he’s normally on these days, man.

In the end, nothing else needs to be said, fam. Hell, Kanye is back! What else do we need to know, bruh? Nothing, that’s what. Now, I’m done rambling for the day, son. Let me get out of here and see what this J. Cole album is hitting for, man. Good day. LC out.

Get Kim Kardashian The F*ck Outta Here!

So, let me get this straight, son. Kim Kardashian, a non-Black woman, is telling Black people to get over racist comments made by a White man? The same Kim Kardashian who’s married to a Black man and has two biracial children? Bruh, can someone PLEASE get this woman the fuck outta here, man?! Like, she can’t be serious, fam. Honestly, where does she even get off thinking she can make a statement like that? All I want to know is, why do folks keep supporting this idiot?

Now, before I continue disintegrating Kardashian, let’s talk about Jeffree Star. Star is the racist ass makeup artist who Kardashian inexplicably defended. So, what makes Star racist? Ok, let’s examine some of his past quotes. This is a man who once told someone “I win by having diamond rims, and you win by being a poor Mexican.” This is also a man who once told someone “shut up, you fucking nigger bitch!” This is a man who once asked someone “will you beat that nigger up for me?” In addition, this is a man who once said “she’s a fucking nigger! You’re a nigger, you fucking ugly ass bitch! Fuck you, ho!” With all of that being said, this is the person that Kardashian is caping for.

Moving on, when Kardashian’s fans brought up the fact that Star is a RAGING bigot, she called them “petty.” Also, she talked about how he’s changed and spoke on how he gives her great makeup tips. Motherfucker, what? What?! So, Black people are supposed to let all of this shit slide because this fucking clowncake knows how to contour? Fam, certain people make me want to jump off of a bridge. Not to die, but to get enough momentum to kick them in the fucking face.

As expected, Kardashian later retracted her statements. She claimed that she was “naive” to what Star previously said. Well, if that was the case, then why the fuck did she open her cotdamn mouth in the first place, son?! Look, if she had no clue what she was talking about, then she should’ve just shut the flying fuckity-fuck up! All in all, she’s either a racism apologist or a flaming dumbass. Either way, Kardashian comes out of this looking like an imbecile. Maybe next time, she should think about her BLACK husband and her HALF-BLACK kids before she comes to a bigot’s aid.

In the end, I’ve had enough of Kardashian and her entire extended family. On the real, they have no problem profiting off of Black culture, but they continually showcase their lack of understanding and empathy. Ultimately, if any minority continues to support them, then I already know everything I need to know about that person. Yeah, it’s that real, son. By and by, if a person is racist or blind to racism, then they don’t deserve our attention. Plain and simple, man. LC out.

Do We Want The Righteous Or The Ratchet?

So, to begin, the above picture has little to do with the premise of this post. Frankly, I’m using the images of Ayesha Curry and Cardi B as a means of trolling. With that being said, I have a real question for all of my readers. Does everyone out there want the righteous or the ratchet? I ask that because I always notice the difference in response between posts about political/social issues and posts about pop culture. All I want to know is, is celebrity more important than the issues that affect our everyday lives?

Now, before I continue, let me keep it a buck. On the real, I’m thankful for ANYONE who reads this blog. I mean, I’m wholeheartedly surprised that folks pay attention to my random ramblings. In any case, as people could probably tell, I’ll talk about any and everything on this platform. Frankly, this blog is essentially a snapshot of my free association writing. So, I will continue to touch on a wide variety of topics. However; I do find it odd/slightly disheartening that people would rather read about things like Rap beef than police brutality.

Look, let me be clear, son. Regardless of what I write about, I’ve gained a base that will support me. I mean, that’s fucking beautiful, man! I check my analytics everyday and do the Carlton Dance out of pure joy. With that being said, it scares me that sensationalism seems to be more important than reality. While I thoroughly enjoy making fun of pop culture fuckery, I also want people to take a greater interest in substantial issues. Being honest, in the grand scheme of things, speculation about Kim Kardashian‘s ass shouldn’t trump healthcare, pun intended.

In the end, I’m sorry if I’m coming off a bit preachy here. On the real, that’s truly not my intention, man. Listen, I’m really no better than anyone else, son. Basically, I’m just a random dude with an internet connection who happens to care. Ultimately, my only goal is to make everyone out there aware of what’s happening around us. Now, don’t worry, I’ll keep making fun of our celebrities when they do dumb shit, fam. However; I just want people to care about the righteous as much as we seem to care about the ratchet. That is all. LC out.
