Damn, Meek Mill

So, Meek Mill is in a world of shit right now, son. I mean, there’s no way else to cut it or slice it, man. On Monday, Meek appeared in court to face the music for violating his probation. Now, even though the prosecutors recommended no jail time, Judge Genece E. Brinkley had a different plan in mind. After overseeing Meek’s case from its inception, she appeared to be over all of the shenanigans. With that being said, she sentenced Meek to 2-4 years in prison as punishment. Damn, Meek Mill.

Ok, so the question is, how did he get here? Now, while I do think the sentence is harsh, Meek didn’t make any of this shit easy on himself. Listen, if we’re keeping it a buck here, he was constantly getting into some type of tomfoolery. Look, I see several news sources pointing to his recent arrests being the culprit. But, that’s only half of the story, fam. In reality, there were more underlying factors that contributed to Meek’s situation. Shit, let’s go through some of them, bruh.

First, he was arrested back in March for a fight at a St. Louis airport. To be fair, those charges were dropped, son. Then, he pleaded guilty to reckless driving in October after he recorded himself riding a dirt bike here in New York. Look, as a lifelong NYC native, I could’ve told him that was a bad idea, man. The NYPD has a strong disdain for bikes in this city. On top of that, he kept doing shows outside of Philadelphia, even though the judge specifically told him not to. Frankly, Meek and his team made it easy to helm him up, fam.

Now, with all of that being said, does he deserve 4 years in prison? Nah, I’m not co-signing that shit, bruh. However; we can’t front like he didn’t put himself in a bad spot, son. On the real, if I knew I had a judge like Brinkley, I would sit my ass down, man. Look, there’s no need to end up on the wrong side of the law if it could be avoided, fam. All in all, there’s already enough of us in prison, bruh. There’s truly no need to add to the numbers, folks. Especially not over some dumb shit, people.

In the end, this shit is wack because I’m actually a Meek Mill fan. Real talk, he’s never dropped a bad project, son. Ok, yeah, people had jokes during the Drake debacle and the breakup with Nicki Minaj. However; the music never suffered, man. Ultimately, I’m going to be playing Dreams Worth More Than Money, Dreamchasers 4 and Wins & Losses at ignorant levels, fam. *Sigh* He was on a fucking streak before this shit happened, bruh. By and by, that’s all we’ve got until he’s free again. LC out.

Cardi B Ethered Azealia Banks

Listen, can Azealia Banks please go away? I mean, for someone who actually has talent, she’s spent her entire career sabotaging herself. At this point, I can guarantee that people know her more for her fuckery than her actual music. Shit, just take a look at this list of tomfoolery, son. With that being said, she jumped out of the window again when she came for Cardi B. *Sigh* I really used to champion this chick, but now she needs to disappear forever (Cardi B voice).

Now, for those who missed it, while people like me were hyped that “Bodak Yellow” went number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, Banks was hating. Out of nowhere, Banks turned Cardi’s success into a race issue and her argument made no sense. She claimed that Black men were “too hype” for a Latina woman, but didn’t support artists like Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj in the same manner. In addition, when it comes to Nicki, Banks stated that Cardi is just a “poor man’s” version of the Queens rapper.

Ok, there are NUMEROUS things wrong with Banks’ logic, man. First, Cardi is half-Black. Common sense tells us that racism isn’t a good argument when the person being criticized has Black DNA. All in all, Cardi may be Dominican, but she’s also Trinidadian, fam. Meaning, Banks’ entire dissertation was invalid from its inception.

Second, when haven’t people supported Remy and Nicki? Hell, Nicki has a top 10 hit on the charts RIGHT NOW as part of Yo Gotti‘s “Rake It Up.” Also, Remy just had a major hit last year with “All The Way Up,” bruh. Ok, yeah, those two women have issues with each other, but that doesn’t have any impact on the fans supporting their music. So, what the fuck is Banks even talking about, son?

With all of that being said, Cardi had the perfect response to Banks’ nonsense. After all of the hate, she posted a video of Banks jamming HARD to “Bodak Yellow,” with the caption “one of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!” Now, how can Banks justify her idiocy after that? She came out of left field to hate on Cardi and was a fan this whole time. All in all, stupid is as stupid does, man. Forrest Gump dropped that jewel back in 1994, fam.

In the end, hating is not a good career choice, bruh. Ultimately, Banks looks like a clown and has further sullied her already tarnished reputation. *Sigh* I guess some people really don’t want to prosper, son. By and by, Banks is hopeless now. LC out.

So… Nicki Minaj Finally Responded To Remy Ma…

Welp, the beef between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj got wack very quickly, didn’t it? Look, it started off with a bang when “ShEther” came out. However; every subsequent event after the release of that song has been trash. I mean, Nicki was galavanting all over the world like she wasn’t thinking about this, while Remy put out the uber-basura “Another One.” In addition, Remy hit the interview circuit, talking to anyone who would listen about her gripes with Nicki. *Sigh* I was hoping for more, son. I was hoping for a helluva lot more, man. With all of that being said, Nicki’s response on the newly-released “No Frauds” can’t save this feud, bruh. It’s already dead.

So, in the middle of the night, Nicki decided to drop a trio of records. She put out the aforementioned “No Frauds” with Drake and Lil Wayne, “Changed It” with another Wayne feature, and “Regret In Your Tears,” a Meek Mill takedown. All in all, I guess these songs make sense since pictures of the recently-reunited trio started circulating around social media. I mean, it’s all cool in theory, but none of these records move me, man. Now, in regards to Nicki’s replies on “No Frauds,” they were good enough to beat “Another One,” but definitely not “ShEther.”

Moving on, after listening to that record a few times, it’s evident that Nicki is responding directly to “Another One.” This further proves the point that Remy’s second diss track was a terrible idea. If she just left it at “ShEther,” I doubt Nicki would’ve ever responded. Remy let her back in the game with that corny ass follow-up record. Shiiiit, everyone on her team should be fired for letting her release that garbage. In any case, Nicki made a couple of references to record sales and plastic surgery, but nothing hit hard for me.

Ultimately, this battle was not what I envisioned, son. I won’t lie, man, I’m disappointed in both Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj. On the real, both of these women can actually rap, bruh. I just wished they brought bigger guns to the shootout. This whole shit ended up being a waste, man. *Sigh* LC out.

P.S. Did Nicki really drop a diss song with features on it? Did Nicki really drop a diss song where the hook is a “No Type” ripoff? Man, this shit is an obvious ploy for radio play. When she enlists Drake and Wayne, she doesn’t even have to have a good song. The record will sell based on the names only. Look, either battle for real or don’t, Nicki. I can’t stand the tomfoolery, son. That is all.

P.P.S. Nicki’s Instagram rant was harder than the damn music. Man, what part of the game is this? She must’ve learned about “Twitter fingers” from Meek. Good Lord, this is fucking corny, son! For the last time, numbers don’t fucking matter! KRS-One was a nobody when he took down MC Shan. 50 Cent was underground when he destroyed Ja Rule. The game is soooo fucked up, man. *Sigh* No mas.

Remy Ma Just Played Herself

*Sigh* Man, didn’t I JUST give Remy Ma her just due? Didn’t I JUST proclaim that she bodied Nicki Minaj? Everything was all good less than a week ago when “ShEther” was the only diss track floating around the internet. However; just like that, Remy let Nicki back in the game, son. After the release of “Another One,” her second diss track, Remy might’ve killed her own momentum. Yeah, the song was that bad, man. It was that damn bad.

Now, ever since the weekend, everyone has wondered if Nicki would respond. In addition, social media has broken out into a civil war, with Nicki’s Barbz in a deadlock with Remy’s… Wait, what do we call Remy’s fans? Nah, I’m not being a dick, son. I’m asking a legitimate question. I have no idea what’s applicable here. In any case, I’ve seen hoards of people argue over wholly irrelevant details. Listen, Nicki’s looks, net worth and chart success have nothing to do with Rap skills, man. Anyway, people talk about hits as if “All The Way Up” wasn’t ringing off all 2016.

Moving on, instead of joining in on the festivities, Nicki has made it her mission to act as if nothing is bothering her. She’s posting pic after pic on Instagram as if we’re not looking at her with The Rock eyebrow. All I know is, filming a video with Future won’t stop the slander, son. It’s real out here on these internet streets.

With all of that being said, Remy had the upper hand, man. Well, that was until last night. I’m sorry, but this “Another One” song is weak as hell, son. The beat is meh, the flow is meh, the punchlines are meh and she makes too many references to Drake‘s “Back To Back.” Look, bringing attention to another artist’s diss song doesn’t make a new diss song any more effective. Instead of stealing Drake’s swag, she should’ve thought of more heinous shit to say to Nicki. The way I see it, Remy wasted all of her ammo in “ShEther.” It doesn’t seem like she has anything else to say about Nicki.

Ultimately, Nicki’s in a good position right now. On the real, I wouldn’t be surprised if she finally fires back at Remy. Instead of directly responding to “ShEther,” Nicki can just respond to “Another One” and catch a W. All in all, Remy’s clearly never heard the phrase “quit while you’re ahead.” Damn shame, son. In any case, back to our regularly scheduled program. LC out.

Remy Ma BODIED Nicki Minaj!

All jokes aside, I’m not even sure what to write here, son. Remy Ma just put her entire foot, ankle, shin and thigh in Nicki Minaj‘s ass, bro. While I believe these women have been throwing jabs at each other for a minute, Remy said “fuck the subliminals” and launched a nuke at Nicki. With that being said, Remy’s “ShEther” is fucking brutal, man. Nothing and no one was spared, son. So, me being me, of COURSE I have to dissect every nook and cranny of this conflict! Let’s do it!

Now, before I continue, I’d like to make a public service announcement. To all of the Nicki Minaj fans out there: money and success don’t mean shit right now. This is Rap music and it’s about lyrics. It’s about bars, son. Tour revenue and record sales don’t have shit to do with being a great rapper. If it did, MC Hammer would be the G.O.A.T. Hammer’s first three albums alone sold 15 million copies. Shit, Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em sold 10 million of those copies by itself. I mean, who wasn’t singing “U Can’t Touch This,” man? In any case, a rapper’s lyrical supremacy can’t be judged by how many records they sell. It’s wholly irrelevant. Therefore, if that’s the argument for Nicki, then she already lost this battle.

Moving on, the timeline of the conflict between Remy and Nicki is interesting. Since Remy got out of prison, everyone assumed her post-incarceration bars were going at Nicki. Side note, did y’all peep the “post-incarceration bars” pun? Man, I crack myself the fuck up, son. Anyway, whether it was a random freestyle or her verse on the remix to PHresher‘s “Wait A Minute,” everyone believed she was coming at Nicki’s neck. Well, I guess we can add Nicki to that faction. Despite Remy’s claims that she never uttered a word about her, Nicki still clapped back in her verse on Gucci Mane‘s “Make Love.”

While flowing on Gucci’s song, Nicki essentially reiterated all of the shit I said didn’t matter in the second paragraph. In her eyes, in order to be the “queen of Rap,” an artist needs to sell records and have plaques. Now, listen, I’m actually a longtime Nicki fan, but I thought this verse was trash even before Remy responded. I swear, record sales always end up being an artist’s downfall. They’re always their best when they’re hungry. Then, they get some success and forget what made them great in the first place. Shit, we’re seeing this right now with Drake, but I’ll save that for another post.

So, Remy clearly heard the shots Nicki threw her way and decided to UNLEASH! Listen, “ShEther” encompasses about every brand of disrespect imaginable. She accused Nicki of fucking Drake, Gucci, Lil Wayne, Trey Songz and Ebro Darden from Hot 97. She claimed that Nicki couldn’t fuck Meek Mill for three months because her ass implants popped. She ridiculed Nicki for supporting her brother, a 37-year-old grown ass man who’s accused of raping a 12-year-old girl. I mean, it goes on and on, son. Napalm blast after napalm blast, bro. Seven minutes of pure, unadulterated pain.

At this point, Nicki HAS to respond, man! There’s no way she can take the Jay Z approach and just let that shit slide. I mean, social media has been ON FIRE all weekend, son! Platinum plaques can’t save her when her name is being dragged for filth. This is Rap music, bro. The gloves are off and it’s time to roll around in the mud. All I can say is, as harsh as “ShEther” was, I wouldn’t be surprised if Nicki threw a miscarriage punchline at Remy. Yeah, the battle has already gotten that ugly, son. Ultimately, as long as it stays on wax, I just want these two women to rap.

In the end, battling is alive and well, man! Let’s get these bars off, son! Rap is a contact sport, bro. As Nas said, the best are supposed to clash at the top. Let’s get it! LC out.

P.S. While this post was written from a completely objective perspective, I’d be remiss if I didn’t put one in the air for the Bronx. Stand the fuck up, son! That is all.

P.P.S. I’ve heard a few people say that a diss track can’t be effective if everything isn’t 100% fact. If that were truly the case, no one would ever say “Ether” was better than “Takeover.” Jay accurately broke down Nas’ entire life, son. In the end, just enjoy the show, son. Ok, bye.
