dvsn Is Drake’s Best Act

So, I won’t lie, son. As I write this post, I’m playing “Nuh Time/Tek Time” at ignorant volumes. With that being said, I won’t mince words here, man: dvsn is BY FAR Drake‘s best act, fam. I mean, given the current musical landscape, this is exactly the type of R&B that I want to hear, bruh. Shit, in an age where singers can’t sing and producers can’t play instruments, I get hyped when I hear music like this. All in all, anybody who’s sleeping needs to get onboard.

Now, keeping it a buck, I caught on to the dvsn wave around the time “Too Deep” dropped. I was aware of their first two songs (“The Line” and “With Me“) but I didn’t take the time to listen. Needless to say, once I heard “Too Deep,” I scavenged for anything else I could find, son. In any case, once Sept. 5th came out, it was a wrap, man. Besides the aforementioned jams, I kept “Try/Effortless” and “Do It Well” on repeat, fam.

Moving on, as of right now, I’m knee deep in their new album, Morning After. Now, I didn’t think I’d be able to say this, but the production may be better on this record, bruh. I mean, Nineteen85 put his whole foot, ankle and shin in these instrumentals, son. In addition, Daniel Daley is still showing folks that vocals matter. Listen, let me just say it like this: they sampled the god Maxwell on “P.O.V.” and I didn’t want to shoot them in the kneecaps, man. Real talk, that takes talent, fam. All I know is, lesser men would’ve royally fucked that up, bruh. By and by, folks need to quit reading this and just go listen to the album.

In the end, this post ain’t a shot at anyone else at OVO Sound, son. Folks can keep enjoying PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan and Roy Woods, man. All I’m saying is, if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on dvsn, fam. Ultimately, any music that’ll make a girl strip should be appreciated, bruh. Shit, nothing else needs to be said here. LC out.

Who Pissed In Kid Cudi’s Cereal?

Man, what would Twitter be if it wasn’t a venue for celebrities to lose their shit in a barrage of 140 characters? Honestly, ain’t that the best part of following public figures on social media, son? With that being said, I’d like to thank Kid Cudi for throwing all types of shots at Kanye West and Drake yesterday. While I’m not sure who rubbed their nuts on Cudi’s Corn Flakes, I’m absolutely here for the show, bro. Now, let’s get to it.

Now, I have to be honest, son, I don’t know where to start with this story. This is mainly because it has so many layers and they’re all hilarious. So, apparently, Cudi stubbed his toe on a staircase bannister and then decided to fire off some tweets. At first, Cudi spoke in generalizations about artists who consider themselves Top 5 despite having “30 people” write for them. He continued to wax poetically about how the “fake ones” won’t last and he even used my favorite word in the universe: fuckery. Now, even though he shouted out artists like A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott, he made it perfectly clear his derision was aimed at Kanye and Drake.

While I have no idea what these two dudes did to Cudi, he firmly declared the notion that neither one of them care about him. In his mind, they only needed him when he had something to offer them. Furthermore, he believes they only kept him close because of how “powerful” he is. Look, it sounds like a bunch of BFF beef to me, but I can’t fault a man for feeling the way he feels. However; that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh at how emotional these tweets are, bro. I mean, let’s be real, Cudi did the same thing on Twitter that Kanye does on a regular basis. At this point, Kanye is Regal Ruler of Random Ranting and Rambling. No wonder him and Cudi were friends for so long, son.

With all of that being said, there was NO way word was going to get back to Kanye without a response. During his Saint Pablo tour stop in Tampa, Yeezy decided to respond to his former protégé. After a flurry of comments like “I birthed you” and “don’t never mention Ye name,” Kanye expressed being hurt because he was the first one to be called names for wearing skinny jeans. Ok, he didn’t necessarily say that was the only reason he was upset, but c’mon son, he literally brought up wearing skinny jeans first. So, a former mentee airs him out and that’s one of the first things that comes to his mind? I swear, Kanye is one of the funniest human beings on the planet, son. Any man that can mention skinny jeans and Malcolm X is adjoining sentences is a genius, bro.

In the end, can’t we all just get along, man? Look, I’ll give Cudi his credit, son. While I’m not his biggest fan, I’m well aware of the wave he started. He was a driving force behind Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak, which essentially created Drake’s whole aesthetic. So, yeah, his influence can’t be denied. However; I don’t see how this ends well for him. I mean, regardless of what Cudi puts out musically, I doubt it can harm the reign of Drake and Kanye. In case he forgot, they’re the two biggest rappers on the planet. And no, this isn’t up for debate, son. They just are. It is what it is, bro. Good day.

P.S. I know Drake responded to Cudi too, but I can’t help but shoulder shrug, son. Once again, he takes shots onstage, but he probably ain’t got no bars for Cudi. Until then, miss me with the jokes. I’m out.
