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.

Get The NFL The F*ck Outta Here!

Keeping it a buck, I’m having a REALLY hard time holding my anger at bay, son. I mean, organizations like the NFL aren’t even trying to hide their bigotry, man. At this point, I truly hope the (mostly Black) players understand what’s going on here: the team owners don’t give a FUCK about racial injustice, fam. All in all, by approving a policy that forces players to stand for the National Anthem, Roger Goodell and company have effectively spit on the idea of a peaceful protest.

Ok, for those who are unaware, the NFL just pulled some DEFCON 1 fuckery, bruh. So, the owners unanimously voted for a rule that forces all on-field team personnel to stand for the anthem. Basically, if any player or staff member is on the field and doesn’t stand, they will be fined. Furthermore, if anybody wants to “exercise” their right to protest, they have to stay behind in the locker room. *Sigh* The league has essentially trampled on the First Amendment, son. They’ve taken away people’s ability to freely express themselves.

Look, let’s just cut the nonsense, man. On the real, giving folks the “option” to stay in the locker room is basically their way of saying “we don’t want anybody to see this little protest.” At this point, I don’t know how many times I’ve written about this, fam. But, the call to kneel, pioneered by Colin Kaepernick, was NEVER about the fucking flag, bruh. It was NEVER about our troops, son. For God‘s sake, it was a SILENT way to show solidarity with all of the people of color who were and are brutalized by an injustice system. Now, thanks to morons like Donald Trump, the movement has become nothing more than political fodder. All I know is, this country is hell-bent on stifling freedom, folks.

In the end, everyone has a choice to make, son. The American public has to decide if we’re going to keep supporting a valueless dictatorship. The NFL players have to decide if they’re going to remain silent while their rights and beliefs are stepped on. Ultimately, I was done with the NFL last season, man. I mean, I’m a diehard New York Giants fan, but I couldn’t bring myself to watch any of their games, fam. By and by, I can’t lend my support to a league that doesn’t give a flying fuck about racial equality, bruh. Side note, major shout-out to Christopher Johnson, CEO of the New York Jets, for offering to pay any player fines. All I can say is, he’s a real one, people. In any case, fuck the NFL and anybody who supports them, folks. LC out.

P.S. I hope the haters don’t think I haven’t been paying attention to Kaepernick’s collusion case, son. Shit, he’s already uncovered information that several teams viewed him as a starting quarterback. So, we can put that whole “he’s not good enough to play in the league” bullshit to bed, man. Listen, we all know why he doesn’t have a job, fam: the owners wanted to punish the “uppity Negro,” bruh. *Sigh* This country is the fucking worst, people. That is all.

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.

I Want The Cavaliers & The Warriors To Lose

Look, I know what everyone is thinking, son. I mean, based on the title, it may seem like I’m hating, man. But, before people try to take my head off, let me explain why I want the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors to lose. Basically, as a lifelong basketball fan, I’m getting bored with the NBA, fam. Year after year, the same fucking teams go the Finals, bruh. All in all, I need some new shit to happen to keep my interest, folks.

Now, I won’t lie, son. I’ve actually felt this way for a little while, man. Listen, for the last seven years, it was a given that LeBron James and company were going to win the East. For the last few years, it was a given that Stephen Curry and company were going to win the West. From there, barring any random occurrences (like Draymond Green getting suspended in the 2016 Finals), it was a given that the Dubs were going to beat the Cavs. So, what does a dude like me have to look forward to, fam? On the real, we’re all just watching the same damn script, bruh. There’s no drama, no suspense and no thrill, people.

Listen, let me tell everybody how serious I am about wanting change. Now, I’m a New York dude through and through. Meaning, I hate ALL Boston teams with an undying passion. However, I’m so tired of the same matchups that I actually want the Celtics to beat the Cavs, son. Shit, does anyone know what that wish does to my soul, man? I’m actually rooting for a fucking team that I despise, fam. THAT’S how much I want things to be shaken up, bruh. All I know is, I’m going to have to repent to Yankees Jesus, folks.

In the end, my wish probably won’t come true, son. Ultimately, the Cavaliers and the Warriors will probably meet again in the Finals, man. Yes, I know that the Cavs just got trounced by the Celtics in Game 1. But, they’re going to have to beat LeBron three more times, fam. All I can say is, that’s a tall order for a young team, bruh. In addition, I don’t believe in the Houston Rockets‘s ability to beat GS, people. By and by, they’re going to have to show and prove before I believe the hype. In any case, I’ll see everyone in the Finals for part four of LeBron versus Steph and part three of LeBron versus Kevin Durant. 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.
