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.

This J.I.D Album Is Crazy!

So, I’m going to keep this post super brief, son. Long story short, this new J.I.D album is crazy, man! I mean, this dude is RAPPING rapping, fam. Like, the amount of words he’s able to fit on this DiCaprio 2 album is fucking nuts, bruh! Side note, I’ve seen this project listed as an album and a mixtape. Which one is it, brethren? Then again, in this current era, who the fuck knows, folks? In any case, J.I.D has successfully transformed himself from a high-potential prospect to a full-on monster, people. All in all, everybody needs to get down with the getdown.

Now, like I’ve said earlier, I won’t waste anymore of people’s time, son. Shit, I’ve said my piece, man. The rhymes are fire, the beats are hard and the hooks are serviceable. What more do folks need to know, fam? Exactly. So, I’m just going to highlight some of the songs I fuck with below. At the end of the day, J. Cole did the right thing by signing J.I.D, bruh. Hell, Kendrick Lamar comparisons aside, this dude has a bright future ahead of him, people. Hasta luego (pun intended)! LC out.

I Can’t Take This 6ix9ine Album Seriously

Now, based on the title of this post, I know what some people may be thinking. However, my review of 6ix9ine‘s Dummy Boy has nothing to do with the quality of the music, son. Frankly, I don’t care about how good or bad the records are, man. In reality, today’s article is all about the messages being perpetrated in the songs, fam. On the real, in light of 6ix9ine’s current legal situation, everything is in bad taste, bruh. All in all, the same subjects that are being glorified on this album are the exact reasons why that dude is in jail, folks.

Look, I’m going to try and keep this short, son. The fact of the matter is, rappers can’t have it both ways, man. They can’t spit nonstop gangsta shit and then say they ain’t do nothing when the Feds come knocking. Ok, yes, rappers have been lying in their rhymes since the beginning of time. However, given 6ix9ine’s current predicament, it’s surreal to hear some of his bars. I mean, a couple of the new records have a Pop feel to them, but there’s still A LOT of violence in his lyrics, fam. Needless to say, it’s wild to listen to these songs while he’s simultaneously claiming his innocence in court.

Listen, if an artist isn’t really about that life, then knock off the goofy shit, bruh. Like, just the other day, 6ix9ine’s lawyer maintained that the rapper only talked about that hood shit for attention. Well, now he’s got the government’s attention, son. Was it worth it? Helllllll fucking no, man! Point blank, ain’t NO Rap buzz worth a 30-year sentence, fam. Real talk, homie should’ve listened to all of the OG’s who tried to school him. Keeping it a buck, judging from the way he was moving, there was never going to be a positive outcome to this scenario, bruh.

In the end, I hope 6ix9ine’s story is a wake-up call for other artists. Ultimately, the streets aren’t something to be trifled with, son. By and by, Dummy Boy encapsulates everything wrong with how 6ix9ine was living, man. At the end of the day, it would’ve been problematic enough if that was really his lifestyle. All I know is, it’s even worse because it was all an image, fam. An image that will most likely take away YEARS of his freedom. *Sigh* The whole thing is a fucking waste, bruh. That is all. LC out.

I Don’t Know If I Believe This Dwight Howard Story

Now, let me begin this post by saying that I don’t care if Dwight Howard is gay or not. I don’t care if he’s bisexual or if he gets down with transgender women. All I know is, I don’t want that dude on my basketball team. In any case, Howard’s name is being dragged through the mud because of a story by Masin Elijè. Apparently, according to Elijè, Howard is his ex-boyfriend. Furthermore, Elijè took it upon himself to “out” Howard due to alleged threats of violence. With all of that being said, I have some real doubts about Elijè’s story, son.

Ok, for those who missed it, Elijè is claiming that he had a relationship with Howard. Now, based on his story, their situation ended because of Howard’s infidelity and possible attraction to transgender women. From there, I’ve read some other shit about sex parties and allegations that Howard’s pastor threatened Elijè’s life. The word is, all of this has transpired because he wouldn’t sign an NDA about his time with Howard. Look, all of this could very well be true, man. But, based on the person telling the story, I might have to call shenanigans, fam.

Listen, Elijè is no stranger to the bullshit, bruh. Just last year, both Elijè and Rubi Rose tried to run the same scam on Playboi Carti. After Rose and Carti broke up, she alleged that Carti was messing around with Elijè. Anyway, Elijè tried to put out some DM’s to corroborate the story and most people believe they were fabricated. Fast forward to now and her DM’s with Howard also look shaky. For one, Elijè’s responses are missing the normal text bubbles that appear in Instagram conversations. So, they appear to be doctored as hell, son. All I can say is, we don’t believe Elijè, he needs more people.

In the end, who cares if Howard is gay, man. Ultimately, that ain’t any of our business, fam. Frankly, all we need to know is that he’s a trash NBA player. Ok, yeah, he was dominant at one point in time, but that time is long gone, bruh. By and by, some of the “hurt butt” jokes are funny, but falsely outing someone is bullshit, son. Hell, even legitimately outing someone is bullshit, folks. At the end of the day, that’s not another person’s call to make. The way I see it, Elijè better be telling the truth, people. If not, I hope Howard sues him for erythang. Not “everything,” but erythang. That is all. LC out.

Thanks For Supporting My Music

So, since Thanksgiving is this week, instead of tripping on the historical fuckery of the Pilgrims, I’ve decided to talk about what I’m thankful for. With that being said, I want to say “thank you” to every family member and friend who has aided my musical journey. Over the last year, I’ve been back on the right path, and over the last two months, the pace has accelerated. All in all, I don’t take anyone’s support for granted, son.

Ok, as a lot of folks may know, since early 2017, I’ve been putting out new records. Now, from March to December, I’ve released a total of 16 songs as part of my New Music Fridays series. Fast forward to September of this year, I’ve returned to performing onstage. Since September 8th, I’ve had a total of five shows, including one at the legendary SOB’s. Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, man. In any case, none of this would’ve been possible if my people didn’t help me. So, I couldn’t let this time pass without giving them my full gratitude. Frankly, all of these fine folks are helping me live out my dream.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, fam. Ultimately, this is the happiest I’ve felt in years. By and by, something happens to the spirit when a dream is deferred. At the end of the day, I’m glad I’m out of that rut, bruh. Anyway, I love everyone who’s gotten me to this point and this is only the beginning, son. As of right now, I have some big things on the horizon. First, I’m going to be re-releasing my The Charlemagne Renaissance album on Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal. Side note, folks can vibe out to it on SoundCloud for the time being. In any case, be on the lookout for that. Also, I have more shows in the very near future. The time is now and I want everybody to take this ride with me. Thanks a lot! LC out.

P.S. Shout-out to Scott Morris and all of my brethren at Mor.Bookings for holding the boy down. They’re definitely the plug that I’m not going to run off on. That is all.

P.P.S. Everyone go follow @lcharlemagnenyc on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. That’s where I make all of my music-related posts. Yessir! Good day.

My 500th Post

So, I won’t lie, son. I don’t really have anything weighing on my mind today, man. Well, that’s not true at all. I mean, I have a million things on my mind, but nothing that I feel the need to write about, fam. Instead, I just want to take this time to thank any and everybody who supports this raggedy ass blog, bruh. Shit, as of today, I’ve reached 500 posts, brethren. Real talk, that’s a lot of fucking writing, folks. All I can say is, I wouldn’t have kept this up if people didn’t hold me down. Hell, every time I’ve wanted to quit, someone would randomly give me a word that I needed to hear. With that being said, I just want to acknowledge the fact that I don’t take any of it for granted. In the end, I’m going to do my best to make sure my shit ain’t trash, people. Love y’all! That is all. LC out.

LC Live From A3C

So, I’m going to keep this super short today, son. Basically, I’m doing a show next Sunday in Atlanta, man. Needless to say, I’m fucking hyped, fam! Anyway, this is how the story goes, bruh: I’m going to be in the A for the A3C Festival (shout-out to my dude Mike Walbert). On Sunday, October 7th at 9:00 PM, I’m going to be at iLounge. I’m on the bill for the “East Coast vs. Da South” show. Moving on, I have a short set but we’re going to make it do what it do, baby. In any case, if anyone is going to be in the A next weekend, then come fuck with me, brethren. Everybody can buy a ticket for the show here. All in all, big ups to Scott Morris and Mor.Bookings for the look. That is all. LC out.
