Joe Budden For The Win!

So, it’s no secret that I’m a Joe Budden fan, son. I mean, I’ve already written about that on this very site, man. Shit, even before The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal, I was there for his debut album and entire Mood Muzik series. In any case, after all of these years, it’s super dope to see what he’s been able to accomplish with his podcast, fam. As of right now, I just hope that his new deal with Spotify works out for the best. All I know is, Budden might have the best rebrand in history, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Budden just announced that he teamed up with Spotify to distribute his podcast. Now, according to the details, the show will be released exclusively through the streaming site, but will remain free for the listeners. Furthermore, Budden will now release two episodes per week, but still update his YouTube channel with content. Lastly, all of these changes will take place in September.

Keeping it a buck, I don’t know what else to say, son. Hell, this is just a dope ass move for Budden, Rory and Mal. Listen, I’ve been tuned into the podcast from the beginning (word to Marisa Mendez). So, I’ve seen the show through all of its incarnations, man. On the real, Budden’s podcast and The Joe Rogan Experience are my favorite joints to listen to, fam. With that being said, it’s about damn time that Budden and company got some recognition, bruh.

In the end, shout-out to Joe Budden for staying the course, son. Ultimately, he’s done AND been through a lot of bullshit along the way. Needless to say, he’s found a way to make it all work in the end. Shit, the New York Times just likened him to Howard Stern, but it wasn’t necessary, man. At the end of the day, Budden’s crazy ass is finally getting acknowledgement for being himself. That is all. LC out.

Wesley Snipes Could Learn From Donald Trump

Honestly, I just want everyone reading this to know something: Donald Trump is a genius. He’s a genius for successfully fooling a section of the country into believing he’s a genius. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. The second greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing idiots that Trump is a master of the tax code. At this point, I’m positive I’m in the Twilight Zone. However; there’s only one thing I want to know: how can I avoid paying my federal income taxes too?

On the real, do I even need to give a summary about Donald Trump’s taxes? Does anyone out there watch the news or get Google alerts? In any case, three pages of Trump’s 1995 tax return was leaked by the New York Times. From there, the whole world temporarily stopped. Well, not really, but c’mon son, let me exaggerate for a second. Moving on, it was discovered that Trump claimed losses of $916 million for the year. Now, for those wondering, that number is NOT a typo. The “business genius” running for president loss close to a billion dollars in ONE YEAR! Because of his ineptitude, he was granted the opportunity to avoid paying federal taxes for the next 18 years. This means that when Hillary Clinton claimed Trump doesn’t pay his taxes during the debate, she was telling the truth, son. The ugly, God-awful truth.

Now, for some reason, GOP surrogates are using this tidbit to “prove” Trump’s greatness. In their eyes, he “brilliantly” took advantage of our country’s tax codes to secure wealth for himself. The funny part is, they never seem to mention the fact HE LOST A BILLION DOLLARS IN THE FIRST PLACE! To put this into perspective, Alan Cole of the Tax Foundation tweeted that Trump, by himself, was responsible for 1.9% of ALL net operating losses that year. Wait, can I rephrase that for a second? One man, the GOP nominee for president, represented nearly 2% of ALL company losses in the ENTIRE United States. What part of being a “genius” is that? If my mom sent me to the supermarket with $20, I couldn’t come home without the groceries or the money and be considered smart, man. Instead, I’d probably catch a swift leather belt to the rear end. Come the fuck on, son!

Ultimately, I just want to know, what the hell did Wesley Snipes, Ronald Isley and Fat Joe go to jail for? How are people going to prison on tax evasion charges when the potential next president hasn’t paid his for most of my lifetime? Hell, even Wesley wanted to know the answer to that question. He hilariously tweeted that the IRS hates on the Daywalker every April and that we need to “Make America Blade Again.” All jokes aside, Wesley has a point. This dude spent three years in prison while Trump is now one step closer to the nuclear codes. Man, the game is all fucked up out here, son.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. All I can think about is how much further my money could go if I didn’t have to pay any attention to the IRS. Can Uncle Sam let me cook for the next 18 years too? I mean, do I have to lose all of my money first? If so, I’ll empty out my checking account today! Just let me know, son. Just let me know. Good day.
