Someone Should’ve Snuffed Vado

So, I’m going to try and keep this post short today. The fact of the matter is, someone should’ve snuffed Vado, son. I mean, how is it possible that in a room full of people, excuse me, a room full of men, that NO ONE hemmed him up for putting hands on Tahiry Jose? All I know is, the entire situation was a clusterfuck of nonsense, man. On the real, I don’t want to hear ANY justification for Vado’s behavior.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Tahiry and Vado are a “couple” on WE tv‘s Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. Now, I won’t lie, fam. Real talk, I put the word “couple” in quotations because their union seems fraudulent to me. Ok, yes, I’m well-aware of the fact that Tahiry is allowed to move on from Joe Budden. However, it just feels like her relationship with Vado came out of left field. Especially since they’re now on a show like Marriage Boot Camp. In any case, the oddity of their bond is not why we’re here today. In reality, domestic violence is the real reason for this post, bruh.

Now, in a clip posted by Dr. Ish Major from an upcoming episode, we see Vado forcibly grab Tahiry in front of all of their castmates. Moving on, there were a couple of things that alarmed me about this incident: first, the fact that Vado was willing to take that type of action on television and in front of other people. Shit, I can only imagine the kind of bullshit he’s pulling at home, son. Second, the fact that Tahiry didn’t even seem surprised by his outburst. Once again, this lends credence to the idea that this wasn’t his first time doing that to her. Third, the fact that no dude in the room moved a muscle to help Tahiry, but have no problem squabbling with each other. Hell, I don’t even watch the show but heard about a previous altercation between DeVon Waller and Willie Taylor from Day26. So, these cats can fight over stupidity, but not to help a woman in need?

Look, before I continue, let me make something perfectly clear, son. Now, I’ve already seen comments from some people who are deep in their victim-blaming bag. Yeah, I’ve seen a lot of “Tahiry has an attitude” or “Tahiry has been aggressive towards him, too” type of responses. Fam, check this out. Like I said in my post about Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez, unless this man’s life is in IMMEDIATE danger, there is NO justification for violence. Oh, he doesn’t like the way she talks to him? Well, then fucking leave, man. That is absolutely an option, people. Grabbing or hitting a woman is NEVER an appropriate response during a disagreement. Period.

In the end, I don’t know how some of these dudes operate, bruh. Keeping it a buck, nothing of that nature could happen in my presence, son. Now, if anyone thinks that I’m blowing hot air, ask some of the women in my life how I get down in their honor. Ultimately, everyone on that cast is a fucking sucker, man. By and by, Vado is the biggest sucker of them all. It is what it is. LC out.

Ain’t Sh*t Funny About Megan Thee Stallion Getting Shot

So, let me get straight to the point, son. The fact of the matter is, ain’t shit funny about a man shooting a woman, bruh. Like, who raised some of y’all muhfuckas, man? I swear, folks are so pressed about being “funny” on the internet, they’ll make memes and/or silly jokes about ANYTHING. All in all, let me break it down like this: if Tory Lanez really shot Megan Thee Stallion, then he’s the epitome of a bitch-made dude.

Ok, for those who are living under a rock, some wild shit happened in Los Angeles about two weeks ago. Now, after leaving a party that included Kylie Jenner, something happened in the SUV that was transporting Megan, Lanez and Megan’s friend, Kelsey Nicole. Originally, there was a rumor that Megan’s foot was injured due to broken glass, but she quickly debunked that story. In fact, she was the one who confirmed that she intentionally shot. That, coupled with Lanez’ arrest, made it pretty obvious that he’s the main suspect here.

Now, ever since this assault happened, the internet has been doing what the internet does: acting fucking goofy. One part of the internet (i.e. Adam22) has been alleging that Megan was either verbally or physically abusive to Lanez and this is why he shot her. Apparently, Lanez was getting too comfortable with Jenner and Megan didn’t like that. Look, before I continue, let me make this perfectly clear: unless Lanez’ life was in IMMEDIATE danger, there is NO justification for him shooting her. All I know is, when I say IMMEDIATE danger, unless she’s got a gun, a sword, a knife or the fucking Infinity Gauntlet, I don’t want to see ANYONE caping for Lanez, fam. Yes, people need to keep their hands to themselves, but hypothetically, even if she did hit him, bullets are still un-fucking-acceptable, bruh.

Anyway, ever since this debacle, another part of the internet has been making classless jokes. I mean, whether we’re talking about 50 Cent, Cam’ron or Draya Michele, some folks seem to think that violence against women is hilarious. Shit, I don’t even know how to articulate this further: MEGAN THEE STALLION GOT SHOT! Shot, son! Like, Lanez allegedly took a loaded fucking gun and violated her. For the life of me, I can’t understand how anyone can find that even remotely funny. Also, miss me with that “I have a mother, I have a sister, I have a daughter” type of talk. We shouldn’t need all of that to know that it’s fucking wrong to hit or shoot women.

In the end, I don’t even know what else to say, man. Ultimately, I find people’s lack of morals disturbing, fam. By and by, I’m slowly becoming more detached from social media because I think a lot of these cats are fucking bozos, bruh. At the end of the day, it seems like trolling is WAY more important than integrity. All I can say is, I don’t want any parts of that, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Megan Thee Stallion Needed To Read Her Contract

So, let me begin this post by saying that I’m not here to shit on Megan Thee Stallion. The truth is, she’s no different than countless artists who’ve fallen prey to the business of music. But, after watching her most recent Instagram Live video, it’s clear that she might be a little confused about the status of her deal. In any case, I hope her situation serves as a lesson to other up-and-coming musicians, man.

Ok, for those who missed it, Meg isn’t too thrilled with her record label at the moment. Now, to be frank, her situation is a convoluted one. To begin, she’s signed to Carl Crawford‘s 1501 Certified Entertainment. Side note, someone should’ve told her that signing to a label run by a former baseball player might not be the move. In any case, from there, she signed another deal with Kevin Liles300 Entertainment. Moving on, to make this a little more confusing, she also signed a management deal with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation. So, she’s essentially beholden to three different entities, son.

Now, at the start of her IG video, she’s trying to emphasize that she’s an independent artist. Apparently, she feels that way because she’s signed to an independent label (1501) and has basically built up her own brand. The problem is, that’s not really the truth, fam. Look, regardless of her own self-promotion, the fact is, she’s still signed to a company. Meaning, she’s at the mercy of that company. So, despite the fact that she’s done a great job of making herself hot, the label she signed to still pulls the strings, bruh. This is why they currently have her music in a vice grip.

For clarity, Meg is stating that 1501 is preventing her from releasing new music. Now, as the story goes, based on her newfound success, she tried to renegotiate her contract. After the label refused, she’s now claiming that they’re stopping her from dropping new tracks. Needless to say, Meg is frustrated with all of the red tape that she’s now dealing with. However, it’s also perfectly clear that she’s not as independent as she thinks she is. Listen, just because her label is independent doesn’t mean that she is. In actuality, an artist can’t claim independence if there’s a chain of command, son. Sadly, Carl Crawford runs the show and Meg can only do what he allows her to. All I can say is, this is why artists need to read their contracts. For all intents and purposes, Megan Thee Stallion is an employee of Carl Crawford. So, her career can only go where he lets it go.

In the end, I hope that Meg can gain some sort of liberation. If not, I hope that Crawford will at least give her a little leeway so she can continue to thrive. Ultimately, it sucks that generation after generation keeps falling victim to the shenanigans of record labels. By and by, Meg wasn’t the first and she certainly won’t be the last, man. At the end of the day, I’m not anti-record label. Frankly, I just want all artists to have a CLEAR picture of what they’re signing up for. That is all. LC out.
