Sh*t Got Real For 6ix9ine

So, the tomfoolery finally caught up to 6ix9ine, huh? After all of the trolling, threats and general scandal, Tekashi finally found himself in a bad situation, son. Look, even though I’ve criticized him before, I don’t wish harm on anyone. However, what the fuck did he expect, man? Listen, there’s only so long that a person can pop off at the mouth before something happens to them. All I know is, I hope 6ix9ine finally learns that there ain’t no future in his fronting.

Ok, for those who missed it, 6ix9ine found himself on the wrong side of a robbery. Now, to be real, there are a lot of conflicting stories about what happened, fam. In any case, I’m going to try and piece it all together. So, according to the authorities, Tekashi was in the passenger seat of a car when another vehicle blocked him in. Next, two dudes with guns hopped out and forced him into their car. From there, these guys allegedly took him to some random location in Brooklyn, made him call a friend to bring some personal property and even robbed him of some jewelry. In addition, he was apparently pistol-whipped.

Now, like I said before, I would never wish this type of shit on anyone, bruh. But, at this point, how many people would do harm to 6ix9ine, son? I mean, this dude has made it a point to ruffle everyone’s feathers, man. As of right now, he believes that the incident was an inside job. Shit, it very well could’ve been, fam. Look, did he really think he could light so many fires and never get burned, folks? On the real, a lot of us know him more for his fuckery than his music, brethren. Frankly, he’s lucky that a concussion was the worst of his injuries.

In the end, maybe this incident will teach 6ix9ine a lesson. I mean, for a millisecond after XXXTentacion‘s murder, he looked like he wanted to turn over a new leaf. On the other hand, this entire story could be a publicity stunt, son. I mean, he did just drop that subpar “FEFE” collaboration with Nicki Minaj. Ultimately, he needs to understand that trolling can have serious consequences, fam. By and by, those consequences may be catching up to him, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Drake Owes Shiggy Some Money

So, Drake‘s “In My Feelings” is number-six on the Billboard Hot 100, huh? Look, Drake breaks records everyday, so I’m not going to pretend like that song wouldn’t have been a smash, son. However, homie DEFINITELY owes Shoker, better known as Shiggy from The Shiggy Show, some bread, man. On the real, Shiggy almost single-handedly made that track hotter with his #DoTheShiggy movement. All I know is, this #InMyFeelingsChallenge started an entire wave, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it… wait, nah, bruh. At this point, I’m pretty sure EVERYONE on social media has seen some variation of this challenge, son. In any case, about a week and a half ago, Shiggy started a dance craze on his Instagram page. Basically, a simple dance routine inspired a whole heap of celebrities to join in on the fun. As of right now, I can’t even count the number of people who have followed the trend, man. From Odell Beckham Jr. to Ciara to Drake himself, damn near everybody has embraced Shiggy’s moves, fam.

Listen, all I’m saying is, Shiggy definitely gave Drake a boost, bruh. I mean, the song probably would have been a hit in the long-run. However, its popularity absolutely skyrocketed as a result of this viral movement, son. With that being said, Drake owes Shiggy something, man. Shit, at the bare minimum, Drake should put him in the video, fam. Hell, based on the fact that Drake just did the dance at Wireless Festival in London, we all know he’s aware of Shiggy’s fingerprints, folks. All in all, Shiggy deserves SOME type of recognition, people.

In the end, shout-out to Shiggy for going viral, son. Ultimately, I need all of my New York brethren to win, man. By and by, I’m still not the biggest fan of the song, but I respect the movement, fam. Shit, I respect the fact that social media can be this powerful, bruh. At the end of the day, folks can become a phenomenon from an app, people. I mean, it’s fucking crazy, folks. That is all. LC out.

Justice For Junior

So, those who know me know that I’m a Bronx dude to my core. Like, the way I walk, talk and act come directly from my Boogie Down upbringing. However, I’m also familiar with the fuckery that can transpire in my borough. With that being said, I can’t put into words how tragic Lesandro Guzman-Feliz‘s death is, son. All I know is, NO explanation, justification or scenario can justify what those demons did to that 15-year-old boy.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Feliz, better known as Junior, was horrifically murdered last week. Now, at first, no one knew why members of the Trinitarios gang targeted Junior. Based on initial information, all we knew is that five men literally dragged Junior out of a bodega and hacked him with machetes. Sadly, the entire event was captured on video surveillance and cellphone footage. From there, Junior stumbled to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he later died.

Now, as more intel is being gathered, we now know that this whole tragedy is a case of mistaken identity. Apparently, all of this stemmed from a sextape circulating around social media. As the story goes, a video was making its rounds that showed a teen girl having sex with one boy while another boy rapped next to them. From what I understand, the girl is related to one of the dudes who was looking for Junior. In any case, they targeted Junior because he looked like the boy rapping in the video. Problem is, THAT WASN’T HIM!

Moving on, when these assholes realized they killed the wrong kid, they tried to apologize to the family in several text and Facebook messages. *Sigh* Listen, there are SEVERAL things wrong with all of this, man. First, a “whoops, we killed the wrong dude” explanation is not acceptable, fam. Real talk, even if they found the right kid, NO ONE deserved to die over this, bruh! Ok, yes, I can possibly understand wanting to beat up the person responsible for leaking the video. But, all of that machete shit was WILDLY unnecessary, people!

Next, why didn’t ANYONE in the bodega call for help? I mean, they just let these dudes drag that boy out of the store! Look, I’m not saying that the store owner should’ve fought five clowns with machetes by himself. However, either him or his workers should’ve called somebody, son! For God‘s sake, that boy got butchered in their vicinity! The staff could’ve done SOMETHING, man! ANYTHING!

In the end, I don’t know what else to say, fam. Ultimately, this type of savagery is HIGHLY unfortunate and uncalled for, bruh. By and by, I’m happy that all of the suspects have been caught, folks. At the end of the day, I hope the judge throws ALL of the books at them, brethren. Frankly, these dickheads don’t deserve leniency or pity, people. LC out.

P.S. I advise everyone out there to NOT watch the video of his murder. One, I want us all to respect Junior’s life. Two, nobody really needs to witness such a brutal homicide, son. That is all.

P.P.S. Shout-out to Cardi B for donating $8,000 to the family’s GoFundMe page. Real talk, that was a super stand-up move, fam. Good day.

It’s Not Our Job To Make White People Comfortable

So, I won’t lie, son. I inadvertently started a shit-storm with yesterday’s post about Aaron Schlossberg. As of right now, my comments and direct messages are in shambles on both Instagram and Twitter, man. Apparently, some people think I’m racist because I referenced the fact that there’s a DOCUMENTED HISTORY of White folks fucking with people of color. Well, with that being said, let me be honest, fam: I’m not even remotely sorry. Look, it’s not my job to make White people comfortable, bruh. Frankly, it’s not the job of any minority. All in all, instead of feeling attacked, I hope our White counterparts will be advocates and hold the “bad apples” accountable.

Ok, before I continue, allow me to make myself clear: no, I don’t believe that all White people are racist. I mean, that’s just ridiculous, folks. *Sigh* It’s a shame that I have to do that, son. It’s a shame that anytime minorities tell our stories, the first thing some White people say is “it’s not all of us.” Dammit, nobody said it was all White people, man! Shit, I sure as hell didn’t! In actuality, what I’m saying is, there are MORE than enough instances of prejudice and bias to warrant a cultural change. For God‘s sake, instead of playing the victim, maybe these individuals can help shift the paradigm, fam!

Listen, only a fool would think that Schlossberg is some isolated incident, bruh. On the real, people of color see this type of hatred every single day, son. It’s a reality that we CONSTANTLY have to deal with, man. The fact of the matter is, our safety and well-being is more important than White people’s comfort. Keeping it a buck, I don’t care that some folks don’t want to have to deal with these harsh truths. Minorities shouldn’t have to downplay our pain just to pacify others. At the end of the day, all we’ve ever wanted is to be treated fairly and equally.

In the end, I hope this post clears up any ambiguity, fam. Ultimately, I thought it was pretty obvious that I wasn’t speaking about all White people. I was speaking about Aaron Schlossberg and anyone else who thinks like him. In addition, I’m well aware of and thankful for all of the allies who consistently work towards equality. By and by, a collective effort is the ONLY way to rid our society of the racial ills that have ALWAYS plagued us. That is all. LC out.

Get Aaron Schlossberg The F*ck Outta Here!

*Sigh* Another day, another White person showing their ass in public, son. Seriously, do White people EVER get tired of being petulant assholes? I mean, doesn’t this level of CONSISTENT hate ever get exhausting, man? All I know is, Aaron Schlossberg is just another example of Donald Trump‘s America, fam. An America where speaking another language (well, mostly Spanish) is seemingly unacceptable. Anyway, let’s go through all of the different ways that Schlossberg made a COMPLETE ass of himself, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, here’s why Schlossberg is about to get cooked. So, the other day, this fucktard decided to eat at Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan. In any case, he heard some employees speaking Spanish and lost his fucking mind. From there, he berated the entire establishment for allowing these workers to speak Spanish and demanded that they speak English. Furthermore, he threatened to call ICE in order to have these employees “kicked out of [his] country.” All in all, it was a totally ridiculous scene, son.

Now, I don’t even know where to begin with this guy’s tomfoolery, man. First off, it’s highly problematic that he automatically assumed that these employees were illegal because they spoke another language. Shit, after researching this clown, it’s appears that he’s Jewish. Look, the last time I checked, English isn’t the Jewish community’s primary language, historically speaking. So, should America have kicked out all of his ancestors, fam? Like, what the fuck is this dude even talking about, bruh?

Second, as we now know, this isn’t Schlossberg’s first time being racist on camera, son. Apparently, back in October of 2016, he was caught on film calling someone “an ugly fucking foreigner.” So, this asshat has a history of being a bigot. All the while, he’s a lawyer who boasts about being fluent in Spanish on his website. Side note, I love everyone who left his Yelp review comments in shambles. Moving on, my brain can’t even comprehend the levels of irony and hypocrisy, man. Hell, this man works in New York City, one of the most diverse cities in the world, and is shocked that people speak more than English. *Sigh* What the fuck is wrong with everyone, fam?!

In the end, shout-out to Edward Suazo for exposing this carpetbagger. Ultimately, the next time someone tries to front like Trump didn’t run on a platform of hate, just show them a video of Schlossberg. By and by, all of the hatred that he’s spewing comes DIRECTLY from the Orange One‘s playbook, bruh. All I can say is, White people have to do MUCH better, son. Frankly, this isn’t our problem to fix, man. It’s theirs. Real talk, they’re the ones with the underlying issues, fam. Not us. That is all. LC out.

Damn, Nas Too?

Look, let me get straight to the point, son. I’m a rapper, I’m from New York and I was born in the 1980‘s. So, it should come as no surprise that Nas was a HUGE part of my upbringing, man. I mean, he’s hands down one of my favorite rappers of all time, people. With that being said, I’m disappointed as fuck today, fam. All I know is, if Kelis‘s claims against him are true, then I can’t help but look at Nas in an ENTIRELY different light, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Kelis just dropped a bunch of bombshells in a recent interview, son. Now, for reference, Kelis and Nas have been divorced since 2010. They also have an 8-year-old son, Knight, who’s currently at the center of a bitter custody battle. In any case, while speaking with Jason Lee from Hollywood Unlocked, Kelis gave some details about her relationship with Nas. So, during the course of the talk, she spoke about Nas’s alleged penchant for getting drunk and beating her up. She even relayed a story about how the Rihanna and Chris Brown case inspired her to leave Nas while pregnant.

Apparently, at the same time that Rihanna was being victimized by Brown, Kelis had bruises all over her body. In addition, she talked about how Nas is an on-and-off father who only “shows up when there’s a photo op.” Now, all I can say is, if these stories are true, the revelations are disheartening, man. Listen, Nas has built an entire career around being Hip Hop‘s conscience. Ok, yes, I know that artists portray fictitious characters in their music all of the time. But, for someone who’s made NUMEROUS songs about uplifting women, it’s insane to think that he’s hitting them at the same time, fam. Like, how the fuck am I supposed to take “Black Girl Lost” seriously now?

In the end, I don’t even know what else to say, bruh. Honestly, I think I’ve come to the conclusion that every public figure I’ve ever looked up to is garbage, son. Ultimately, I’m well aware of the fact that people shouldn’t look to celebrities for guidance. However, it’s understandable that certain individuals may give us something to strive towards. By and by, we have to cut all of that hero worship shit out, man. At the end of the day, everybody seems to fucking suck, fam. *Sigh* That is all. LC out.

Hip-Hop Is In A Good Place

So, I know the title alone will have some people in their feelings, son. I mean, I can already hear some of the comments, man: “fuck Mumble Rap” or “these new artists can’t rhyme” or “Hip-Hop isn’t what it used to be.” Look, I’m going to be real, fam. I don’t have time to focus on shit I don’t like, bruh. Real talk, I give everybody a chance, folks. Now, if I don’t like an artist’s music, then I just don’t come back to that shit, people. With that being said, I’d rather take a moment to give credit to the artists who are doing great things. All in all, Hip-Hop is actually in a good place at the moment.

Ok, to begin, let’s talk about Kendrick Lamar, son. Now, for those who missed it, this motherfucker just won a damn Pulitzer Prize, man! Listen, his DAMN. album took home the prize for music. To be clear, Pulitzer started giving out awards for music in 1943. Lamar is the FIRST rapper to ever win that award. On the real, that’s fucking insane, fam! Look, I’m not one of those people who believes that Black culture needs validation from White America in order to be treasured. But, it’s still dope when they recognize the influence we have on the world. Good shit, Lamar!

Now, let’s talk about Drake, bruh. Keeping it a buck, during my wedding week in Nevis, my boy Fabian and I had a candid conversation about Drake. Essentially, we talked about the fact that NO rapper has ever dominated mainstream music the way that Drake has. Look, I’m well aware of the success of artists like Eminem, Jay-Z and Kanye West. However; if we’re being honest here, Drake has been at the top of the charts for damn near a decade now. Son, So Far Gone came out in 2009, man. It’s 2018 now and this dude is replacing his own number-one Billboard Hot 100 song with another hit. Listen, “Nice For What” just replaced “God’s Plan” at the summit and his winning streak continues. All I know is, this type of success should be celebrated, fam.

Next, I want to talk about Cardi B, bruh. Now, I’m 100% a homer when it comes to Cardi, son. Look, I’m a Bronx dude to the core so I have to champion one of my own, man. In any case, we’ve all watched her make a steady transition from stripper to social media star to reality television star to Rap star. On top of that, her Invasion of Privacy album is actually dope, fam. All I can say is, I have no idea how someone could hate on her story, bruh. By and by, she elevated her situation while remaining true to herself. That type of shit is admirable, folks.

Lastly, I want to talk about Nicki Minaj. Now, I’m well aware of the fact that I gave her a hard time the other day. Honestly, that’s because I believe she’s above the petty shit she’s doing right now. Anyway, her new songs are tough, son! Look, I still favor “Chun-Li” over “Barbie Tingz,” but both songs knock, man! Despite all of the nonsense, she’s back to rapping and I’m happy about that, fam. In my eyes, it’s always better when the biggest artists in the game embrace lyrics. It helps to create an atmosphere where other artists will try to live up to that bar, pun intended.

In the end, instead of wasting energy on wack shit, let’s pay attention to the dope shit, bruh. Ultimately, I have nothing else to say, son. By and by, there’s a lot of good music out there right now, man. Let’s just focus on that, fam. That is all. LC out.

P.S. J. Cole is dropping a new album on Friday, bruh. This is yet another example of Hip-Hop being in a good place, son. Anyway, we’ll see what his K.O.D. album is hitting for when it drops. Good day.
