I Need That Black Thought & 9th Wonder EP NOW!

So, I’m going to keep this post brief, son. I mean, I just have a simple message to relay to the masses, man. Basically, I need that Black Thought and 9th Wonder EP NOW, fam! Good Lord, this is some of the best news I’ve heard in a while, bruh! On the real, 9th is known for making gloriously cohesive projects and Thought is one of the best rappers ever. With all of that being said, that record can’t come soon enough, folks!

Ok, for those who missed it, over the weekend, Black Thought told us the good news. Now, the story broke while Thought was hosting his Black Thought Cinema Presents event at the Gramercy Theater in New York. Anyway, while the event was focused on the viewing of Spike Lee‘s School Daze, Thought decided to drop a bomb on us. Apparently, not only is an EP with 9th coming, but it’s supposedly part of a series between them. Son! What else needs to be said about this?! I’m fucking excited, man!

In the end, I’ve said all I have to say, fam. Ultimately, this is GREAT news for Hip Hop, bruh! Frankly, I LOVE The Roots, but it’s about time that Thought got his just due, son. By and by, I already know this record will be motivation for me to get back in the studio. At the end of the day, I can’t wait, man! That is all. LC out.

P.S. If anyone is confused about why I’m so hyped right now, then go back and watch this freestyle. At this point, the entire world should know about the damage he did on Hot 97 with Funkmaster Flex. Good day.


The Giants Fan In Me Can’t Watch The Super Bowl

So, what’s a guy to do, son? Do I choose Satan or do I choose the Antichrist? I mean, that’s EXACTLY how I feel trying to pick between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. I mean, as a New York Giants fan, Super Bowl LII is the worst shit ever, man! Look, regardless of the outcome, a team I can’t stand is going to be the NFL champion. Shit, this is precisely how I felt back in 2005 when Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens faced off against Tom Brady and Deion Branch. Either way, I’m not even sure if I can watch this shit, fam!

Listen, let’s skip the pretense, bruh. On the real, it’s simple mathematics, son. The Eagles are in the Giants’s division and the Patriots have been our Super Bowl nemesis. Look, there’s NO possible way for me to feel good about this championship game, man. As it stands, either the Eagles are going to win their first Super Bowl or Brady is going to get ring number six. Either way, the outcome is going to be the trashiest of the trash, fam. In addition, since Justin Timberlake seems to be embracing his inner MAGA, I can’t even look forward to the halftime show!

In the end, I have nothing else to give, bruh. Ultimately, I don’t give a fuck about what others may say. Yeah, I’m ABSOLUTELY salty, son! By and by, I haven’t supported the NFL all season for what they did to Colin Kaepernick and I will continue to sit on the sidelines. All I know is, I still have a trash ass Knicks team to root for and a ton of UFC fights to watch. That is all. LC out.

Who Are These Weirdos Who Like Snow?

Listen, I hate snow, son. Like, I REALLY hate snow, man. I mean, around the age of 10, I realized that snow was nothing more than some powdery shit that gets in the cotdamn way. Needless to say, I don’t understand adults who actually like snow. Real talk, I question if those people have substantial things to do. If so, then I guarantee all of this gratuitous snow is slowing them down, fam. In any case, I really want to know, who are these weird ass people who enjoy this type of weather, bruh?

Ok, I won’t lie, son. I was inspired to write this post after digging my car out of the snow this morning. Now, therein lies my point, man. Look, before taking my youngest son to school and before going to work, I had to spend time shoveling my car out of the abyss. Essentially, snow ain’t nothing more than a nuisance, fam. Shit, even when it comes to the kids, after the snow turns dirty, they can’t play in the shit anymore. So, why would anyone enjoy this tomfoolery, bruh?

In the end, I’m just bitter, son. On the real, I was born and raised in New York City and STILL can’t jive with this snow shit, man. Keeping it a buck, every winter, I wonder why the fuck I’m still here, fam. Hell, growing up, I was used to blizzards and shit, bruh. Now, we’ve got to deal with “bomb cyclones” and “polar vortices.” Ultimately, I don’t know what any of those phrases mean, folks. However; I do know that it means that parking is going to be a damn safari for the next month or two. By and by, I’m over all of it, folks. That is all. LC out.

More Terrorism In New York

So, let me begin this post by saying that Akayed Ullah is a clown. This 27-year-old dude from Bangladesh really tried to hit Port Authority with a homemade bomb, son. Now, I won’t lie, man. As a native New Yorker, I’ve always had a deep-rooted fear of a subway explosion. I mean, our train system is so interconnected that a well-placed attack would be DAMAGING, fam! With that being said, I’m HIGHLY thankful that Ullah was ill-prepared, bruh. All in all, every last one of these ISIS enthusiasts need to be destroyed, folks.

Ok, let me be honest for a second. So, my normal morning routine consists of watching the news while my wife and I get our kids ready for the day. For whatever reason, I didn’t watch the news yesterday morning. In any case, I got on the D train at 8:15 but didn’t make it to work until 9:45. Keep in mind, the average train ride to work is only about 20 minutes. Now, the whole time I was stuck on the train, I had no idea that the delays were due to Ullah’s fuckery. Frankly, I just thought the MTA was up to its normal bullshit, son. Anyway, once I realized the gravity of the situation, I was just grateful that things didn’t take a more drastic turn.

Keeping it a buck, it’s scenarios like this that remind us how vulnerable we are. September 11 might have been 16 years ago, but in the grand scheme of things, not much time has passed, man. On the real, incidents like this remind us that there are fools who really want to harm innocent people. Moving on, as a result of Ullah’s premature explosion, he injured five people who were just trying to go about their day. Real talk, I know he was hurt too, but I don’t give a flying fuck about that, fam. All I know is, I wish he would’ve been the only one to take any damage, bruh.

In the end, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, son: ISIS is a bunch of cowards. Ultimately, they only target people who can’t go back at them. By and by, a wife going to work has nothing to do with their Jihad. A husband that’s late for his meeting has nothing to do with their Jihad. Losers like Ullah accept our residency and then become convinced that we’re the enemy. Look, bitch, if this country is nothing but infidels, then fucking leave, man! All I can say is, shout-out to all of my Muslim brethren who condemn this senseless tomfoolery. In addition, I hope Ullah gets used to prison. Shit, that motherfucker ain’t never getting out, fam. That is all. LC out.

Damn, Golden Krust

So, this may be a very New York City-centric post, son. As a matter of fact, this may be a very Bronx and Brooklyn-centric post, man. All I know is, as a West Indian dude who was raised in NYC, the news of Lowell Hawthorne‘s suicide is shocking, fam. Real talk, Golden Krust is a MAJOR part of my life, bruh. With that being said, if the theories behind the CEO‘s death are true, then this situation is highly tragic, folks.

Ok, before I continue, let me just paint a quick picture. So, in case people don’t know, I’m from the Bronx. On the real, I’m the product of Co-op City through and through, son. In any case, although I lived with my mother, my father also lived in the Bronx on Seymour Avenue. Now, this is notable because his house was a block away from Gun Hill Road, where one of the original Golden Krust locations exists. Needless to say, anytime I visited him, I completely OD’ed on beef patties and oxtail, man. Until this day, I can’t get enough of their food, fam.

Now, outside of my little worldview, Golden Krust has grown into a very successful business. Hawthorne took his family’s patty recipe and created an empire, bruh. As of now, the company has over 100 locations across various states. So, on face value, it seems like everything is going well, son. However; as we’re now learning, it appears that Hawthorne was dealing with a lot of pressure, man.

Apparently, Hawthorne was facing massive tax debt AND was being sued by Robert Wray, a former employee. Now, according to Wray’s suit, he was never paid overtime over an 11-year period. From what I understand, relatives are now stating that Hawthorne began behaving oddly after confessing his financial troubles to them. All in all, everything came to a head on Saturday when he was found dead in his Bronx factory from a gunshot wound to the head. Keeping it a buck, it’s a really fucked up way to go, fam.

Look, in situations like this, I try not to judge people, bruh. However; if Hawthorne’s suicide was over his financial issues, then death doesn’t really solve the problem, son. I mean, the IRS is still going to hit up his company for their money and Wray’s lawsuit will most likely continue. So, even though he’s out of the picture, the problems still remain, man. Furthermore, in addition to grieving his loss, now his loved ones are left holding the bag, fam.

In the end, this is just a sad circumstance, bruh. Ultimately, suicide is always an unfortunate situation, son. By and by, I feel for his family, his friends and the people who worked with him. Being real, I want to say Rest In Peace to Hawthorne, but I find it hard to think of peace when someone dies in such a manner, man. Anyway, I hope all of Golden Krust’s issues get resolved and I hope everyone involved is able to move on, fam. That is all. LC out.

Don’t Ever Disrespect Eli Manning!

Man, I’m hot right now, son. Real talk, Ben McAdoo has some fucking nerve, fam! Like, how dare he treat Eli Manning like this?! How dare a second-year NFL head coach treat a New York Giants legend like this, bruh?! I mean, after everything Manning has done for this city, THIS is how the organization is going to do him in?! Keeping it a buck, NY always treats its legends poorly, man. Shit, look at what the Knicks did to Patrick Ewing. All I know is, Manning is unfairly taking the fall for the Giants’ shitty season.

Ok, let me be honest for a second, son. Yes, the Giants are fucking AWFUL this year. Look, nothing good comes out of a 2-9 record, man. Hell, we lost Odell Beckham Jr., lost a couple of close games and completely shit the bed against the Los Angeles Rams. With that being said, Manning has been stereotypically Manning all season. He’s completed 60% of his passes, has an 84 passer rating and a 2:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Side bar, he has fumbled the ball 8 times, though, and that’s no bueno, fam. In any case, Manning is NOT the sole reason why the Giants suck, bruh. So, why the FUCK would McAdoo bench him for Geno Smith?!

Listen, Manning gave this city TWO fucking championships, son! Shit, he’s the ONLY dude to ever beat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, man. For that reason alone, he should at least be able to finish the damn season, fam! Now, here’s a thought, bruh: maybe the Giants suck because McAdoo sucks as a coach. Oh, has anyone ever thought of that? Look, former coach Tom Coughlin left the team and was able to help turn the Jacksonville Jaguars around. So, maybe McAdoo should look in the fucking mirror, people. All I can say is, he needs to stop taking his own ineptitude out on Manning.

In the end, fuck Ben McAdoo and the Giants coaching staff, son. Ultimately, Manning is the Gawd and deserves more respect than this. By and by, I can’t be mad at a Black dude for getting a shot at the starting job, but I wish it wasn’t at the expense of a legend, man. *Sigh* Ain’t no loyalty in sports, fam. That is all. LC out.

Congrats, Braxton Winston!

So, this post is going to be short today, son. Basically, I just want to take the time out to congratulate my dude Braxton Winston on winning a seat on the Charlotte City Council. All I know is, North Carolina made the right move on Tuesday, man. They just gave a motivated man the opportunity to make a real difference in the community. With that being said, salute to him and salute to the city for believing in him!

Ok, for those who missed it, I wrote about Braxton when he first began his campaign. Now, even though I couldn’t vote in North Carolina, I still wanted to do something/anything to help his cause. In any case, I’m SUPER hyped that he was able to make this happen! Even though the real work begins now, I’m positive he’ll be ready for it, fam. In the end, nothing else needs to be said here, bruh. Congrats, Braxton!
