It Be Ya Own People: Kevin Hart Edition

So, this Kevin Hart infidelity shit just took a weird turn, huh? I mean, when I read that someone was trying to extort him with a sex tape, I just assumed it was one of the women in the video, son. On the real, I would’ve never imagined that the culprit might be someone from his inner circle, man. In any case, if the rumors are true, then Jonathan Todd Jackson is a fucking clown, fam. All in all, what part of the game is trying to extort a friend, bruh?

Ok, before I continue, allow me to be petty for a second, son. Now, while researching this story, I’ve seen several media outlets refer to Jackson as either JT or Action Jackson. First off, we already have a JT and his name is Justin Timberlake, man. Furthermore, that JT is already on thin ice after his Man of the Woods album, fam. Needless to say, we don’t need anymore fuckery from someone who goes by JT. Second, there’s only one Action Jackson and his name is Carl Weathers, bruh. Look, I ain’t never see Jonathan Todd square up with Rocky Balboa or Predator, folks. So, he doesn’t have the right to use the “Action” moniker.

Anyway, let’s get back to Jackson’s tomfoolery, son. Now, according to reports, Jackson has been charged with attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter. Apparently, he somehow got a copy of Hart’s sex tape and tried to swindle some money out of the comedian. This is notable because these dudes used to be boys. Real talk, I only recognize Jackson’s face because of his proximity to Hart, man. Shit, I can specifically remember seeing him in Think Like a Man Too, a film that starred Hart. So, I think it’s safe to say that Hart got homie a roll in that film.

My thing is, what would lead that dude to attempt this fuck shit, fam? Keeping it a buck, if my boy tried to shake me for some cash, I might as well just confess, bruh. I’d much rather take the risk with my wife than give a carpetbagger any of my bread, son. On top of that, this friend, now former friend, would have to catch these hands, man. Lastly, I’d make him film his own beatdown, since he likes tapes so damn much. Good Lord, Jackson is a straight dumbass for this shit, people.

In the end, I hope those felony charges were worth it, son. Ultimately, if Jackson gets convicted, those consequences ain’t gonna be sweet, man. At the end of the day, stupid is as stupid does, shout-out to Forrest Gump. By and by, Jackson is the definition of stupid, fam. That is all. LC out.

Nah, This Album Ain’t It, Justin Timberlake

So, let me begin this post by saying that I’m a Justin Timberlake fan. Now, I’m a fan despite the fact that he dissed Prince (my hero) on Timbaland‘s “Give It To Me.” In addition, I’m a fan despite the fact that he left Janet Jackson out to dry after Super Bowl XXXVIII. In any case, regardless of his occasionally egregious behavior, I’ve always jammed out to his music. With that being said, I’m disappointed with this Man of the Woods album, son. All in all, I know he wanted to go for a specific sound on this new record. All I can say is, it ain’t really work out too well, man.

Ok, look, let me explain my beef with this album, fam. Now, based on the record’s production, it’s clear that JT tried to mix genres. On a lot of the songs, he mixed Country and Blues-inspired guitar riffs with 808‘s. Anyway, in theory, this may sound like a cool experiment. In actuality, I don’t really think the textures go together, bruh. Look, in my opinion, a bunch of these songs would’ve benefited more from real bass lines. However; producers like The Neptunes and Timbaland tried to substitute those bass licks with 808’s. For me, a lot of it didn’t work, folks.

Now, with all of that being said, I’m not insinuating that this album doesn’t have bangers, son. Keeping it a buck, my assessment of this record is only based on JT’s past music. Sonically, this joint is better than a lot of the shit out there in the zeitgeist. However; based on his own discography, this album is kinda lacking, man. In any case, I do have a few favorites on here, fam. In my eyes, “Filthy,” “Higher, Higher,” “Wave,” “Montana,” “Breeze Off the Pond” and the bridge on “Supplies” are all gold, bruh. Side note, I’m only taking the bridge on “Supplies” because the lyrics to the rest of the song are silly, people. “The world could end now, baby, we’ll be living in The Walking Dead“? Cut it out, JT!

In the end, it doesn’t really matter if people agree with me or not, son. Ultimately, I expect the best from Timberlake and he didn’t quite pull it off this time. By and by, this doesn’t really diminish him as an artist, man. I mean, he does deserve some credit for trying to cultivate a new sound, fam. Now, while I don’t think it necessarily worked, it did generate a few jams. At the end of the day, I’ll take it, bruh. Besides, I’m just happy that him, Pharrell and Chad Hugo are working together again. That is all. LC out.
