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.

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.

The Giants Fan In Me Can’t Watch The Super Bowl

So, what’s a guy to do, son? Do I choose Satan or do I choose the Antichrist? I mean, that’s EXACTLY how I feel trying to pick between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. I mean, as a New York Giants fan, Super Bowl LII is the worst shit ever, man! Look, regardless of the outcome, a team I can’t stand is going to be the NFL champion. Shit, this is precisely how I felt back in 2005 when Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens faced off against Tom Brady and Deion Branch. Either way, I’m not even sure if I can watch this shit, fam!

Listen, let’s skip the pretense, bruh. On the real, it’s simple mathematics, son. The Eagles are in the Giants’s division and the Patriots have been our Super Bowl nemesis. Look, there’s NO possible way for me to feel good about this championship game, man. As it stands, either the Eagles are going to win their first Super Bowl or Brady is going to get ring number six. Either way, the outcome is going to be the trashiest of the trash, fam. In addition, since Justin Timberlake seems to be embracing his inner MAGA, I can’t even look forward to the halftime show!

In the end, I have nothing else to give, bruh. Ultimately, I don’t give a fuck about what others may say. Yeah, I’m ABSOLUTELY salty, son! By and by, I haven’t supported the NFL all season for what they did to Colin Kaepernick and I will continue to sit on the sidelines. All I know is, I still have a trash ass Knicks team to root for and a ton of UFC fights to watch. That is all. LC out.

What Happens To A DREAMer Deferred?

So, let me get this straight, son. The plan here is to kick out about 800,000 people who came to the United States as kids? People who don’t really know any other home than America? Like, that’s part of the grand plan to Make America Great Again? I mean, are these the “rapists and murderers” that Donald Trump and company kept speaking about? Or, are they individuals who are regularly contributing to the fabric of our society? Yeah, I’m going to go with the latter, man.

Now, for those living under a rock, Trump is out here trying to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. This program was instituted by Barack Obama in 2012 as a way to allow young illegal immigrants to work and study in America. Essentially, those individuals who came to our country before their 15th birthday were able to benefit from this policy. All in all, this was Obama’s compromise after Congress failed to pass the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.

Moving on, this decision doesn’t make any sense if we’re being real here, fam. First, it’s foul to deport people who’ve spent most of their lives in this country. Ok, yes, they may have come here illegally, but since then, they’ve done nothing but add value. Shit, if we look at statistics, 91% of DREAMers are currently employed. Meaning, they’re paying taxes to the same government that’s trying to kick them out. In addition, from a business standpoint, deporting these people will cost employers BILLIONS in turnover costs. This includes hiring and training new workers to fill the empty roles. So, both morally and financially, this is a stupid ass decision, bruh.

Ultimately, after all of that tough talk on the campaign trail, now Trump wants Congress to find a solution. By and by, he’s only taking this step because it was an Obama executive order. In the end, Trump just wants to undo anything Obama did, regardless of its practicality. All I can say is, he’s not only affecting lives, but he’s also affecting the economy by making such a drastic move. As it stands, we have to Defend DACA, man. We have to defend the people who simply want to live and thrive according to this country’s promise. That is all. LC out.
