RIP Mac Miller

So, let me keep it a buck, son. Listen, I’m not about to sit here and pretend like I was a Mac Miller fan from day one. To be real, I became a fan of his music after he dropped his Macadelic mixtape in 2012. As a matter of fact, that mixtape along with his Watching Movies with the Sound Off album made me a believer, man. From there, I was onboard, fam. I was onboard for his clever quips, his production skills and his live instrumentation. With that being said, it’s a damn shame that he succumbed to his vices, bruh. All in all, Rest In Peace to Miller, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mac Miller passed away on Friday. At only 26 years old, the Pittsburgh rapper died from an apparent drug overdose. Now, for anyone who’s followed his story, he’s had a long history with abuse, son. Apparently, his drug use is one of the main reasons why Ariana Grande left him. In any case, it seemed like he was trying to deal with his issues, man. I mean, judging from his new Swimming album, Miller knew he had some demons to deal with, fam. Because of this, it’s extra sad that his internal strife got the best of him, bruh.

Listen, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, son: everybody needs to leave drugs the fuck alone, man! I mean, cotdamn, fam! How many more people have to die before we realize this shit is for the birds, bruh? Honestly, when does addiction ever end positively, folks? Seriously, the only favorable outcome is when users quit the shit, brethren. At this point, I can’t even count the number of musicians who have succumbed to illicit substances. All I wanna know is, when will enough be enough, people? When will everyone understand that this never ends well for anyone?

In the end, RIP to Mac Miller, son. Ultimately, he died waaaaaaay too fucking young, man. By and by, he had every reason to live, fam. Look, despite everything he’s already accomplished, he still could’ve done a lot more, bruh. At the end of the day, no one’s life is over at 26, folks. *Sigh* Fuck, man! LC out.

P.S. Real talk, everyone needs to leave Ariana Grande alone, son. Shit, berating her in her Instagram comments makes no sense, people. Look, I’m a Miller fan, but his death isn’t her fault, man. Now, I wouldn’t be surprised if their breakup had an adverse affect on him. But, she didn’t put drugs in his system, fam. Listen, we can be sad about Miller’s death and still hold him accountable for his actions, bruh. So, quit the nonsense, folks. That is all.

Stay Free, Meek Mill

So, Meek Mill is actually free, son. After five months in prison, his bail request was actually granted, man. Now, as a fan of his music, I must say that it’s good to see him out. However, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t keep it a buck, fam. All in all, at this point in time, Meek only has one obligation: stay the fuck outta prison, bruh!

Ok, look, I’m not going to go in depth about how I view his situation. On the real, I already did that in an entire post, son. In actuality, I just want to give the dude some advice, man. Now, before I continue, let me get some things out of the way. First, I wholeheartedly believe that the Justice System victimizes Black people. Second, I also believe that Meek’s two-to-four year prison sentence was outlandish. Third, I’m well aware of the credibility issues of his original arresting officer. With all of that being said, Meek needs to lay fucking loooooow, fam!

Listen, from my perspective, someone in Meek’s position needs to be WAY more careful than the average person. Real talk, it’s no secret that our court system is designed to keep individuals, namely minorities, under their boot. Now, if we know all of that, we can’t give them ANY reason to helm us up, bruh! As of right now, Meek needs an entire new team, son. Frankly, he needs to keep his attorney, Joe Tacopina, and get rid of ANYBODY who isn’t helping to maintain his freedom. Look, “keeping it real” is all good until those prison bars show up.

In the end, there’s nothing else to say, man. Ultimately, I just hope Meek learned a valuable lesson, fam. By and by, he needs to stay FAR AWAY from anything that’s going to get him trapped again. Furthermore, he needs to cut off anyone who isn’t steering him in the right direction. At the end of the day, he better not let the law get him again, bruh. That is all. LC out.

Starbucks: Where Sitting Down Is A Crime

So, I won’t lie, son. The list of shit that Black people can’t do without being harassed just keeps growing, man. I mean, there’s literally NOTHING we can do and NOWHERE we can go without being targeted. This time, a Starbucks in Philadelphia decided to get in on the nonsense, fam. All in all, I won’t blame Starbucks as an organization for what happened to the two wrongfully-arrested Black men. However; everybody who works in that particular store needs to be fired and sued, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, here’s how the fuckery went down, son. Now, two Black guys walked into Starbucks and sat down. Apparently, they were there to meet Andrew Yaffe, a real estate developer. The plan was for them to discuss some business opportunities. Anyway, while waiting for Yaffe, one of the men tried to use the bathroom. Since they hadn’t bought anything yet, they were denied entry. From there, a store manager asked both dudes to leave. When they refused, since they were waiting for Yaffe, the manager called the police. Ultimately, when the authorities showed up, both men were arrested for trespassing. Side note, during the arrest, Yaffe actually showed up. In any case, despite explaining to the officers that the men were waiting for him, they were still arrested anyway.

Moving on, a situation like this is yet another example of how Black people are viewed. Basically, regardless of what we’re doing, we’re always treated with hostility. I mean, let’s be real for a second, man. People sit down and chill in Starbucks locations ALL THE TIME! Shit, I’d bet money that right now some dude is on his MacBook, typing up some article that no one is going to read. Why? Because the Starbucks WiFi is always a good look, fam. So, why were these two men treated with such resentment? Hmm, maybe it has something to do with their skin color? Hell, I thought this was a post-racial society, bruh. Side note, I hope everyone can feeeeel the sarcasm in that last sentence.

In the end, it’s admirable that Kevin Johnson, Starbucks CEO, is bothered by this turn of events. It’s also good that the Starbucks patrons were unnerved by this gross injustice. However; none of this solves the real problem, son. Ultimately, the lens through which Black people are viewed is the issue, man. By and by, that is why the store manager’s first inclination was to call the police. At the end of the day, an irrational fear caused an irresponsible reaction. *Sigh* We can’t even enjoy coffee in peace, fam. LC out.

A Letter To Hillary Clinton

Dear Hillary Clinton,

Look, I’m not one to mince words, so I’ll just get straight to the point. I’m going to need you to let the election go now. The fact of the matter is, you lost. Yes, we could all point to a million different factors that led to this outcome. However; as much as it pains me to say this, Donald Trump is the President. At this point, instead of rehashing your defeat, maybe you should focus on helping to prevent him from ending Western Civilization.

Now, to be fair, I did vote for you. To do this, I begrudgingly looked past your “superpredators” comment and your history with the prison industrial complex. Shit, as fucked up as your policies have been, I was/still am legitimately scared of Trump. I mean, based on what we’ve seen so far, World War III may still be on the horizon. In any case, I’ve never enjoyed picking the “lesser of two evils.” Listen, this entire election cycle has proved how antiquated the two-party political system really is.

Moving on, despite the loss, you refuse to accept any responsibility. Ok, I get it, FBI Director James Comey royally screwed you with his fuckery. The timing of his renewed investigation into your emails is suspect at best. However; that doesn’t account for the many errors you made on the campaign trail.

First, you lost Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida. These are all states that Barack Obama won twice. Twice! In fact, until you, a Democrat hadn’t lost Pennsylvania since 1988. I was 3 years old when that last occurred. To make matters worse, you didn’t campaign in Wisconsin and you only put some money down in Michigan during the last week of the election. How the fuck did you expect to win those states? In my eyes, your hubris got the best of you. You really thought you could just pull those states out of your ass with minimal effort. Well, clearly you were wrong.

Listen, I’m not ignoring the outside factors that may have contributed to your loss. Was there a gender component? Absolutely. Was there a Comey component? Absolutely. Was there a Julian Assange/WikiLeaks/Russia component? Absolutely. With that being said, take some responsibility for your own mistakes. Otherwise, you’re going to keep looking like a bitter loser. All in all, it is what it is, Mrs. Clinton. It just is what it is.

Sincerely,

A dude who’s stockpiling supplies in preparation for Armageddon

A Letter To Steve Stephens

Dear Steve Stephens,

Look, I’ve never been one to mince words, so I’m going to just get straight to the point. You’re a fucking coward, man. You’re nothing more than a peon who deserves the absolute worst. How DARE you take the life of Robert Godwin in such a callous manner?! That man did NOTHING to deserve your pathetic misguided wrath! All I know is, your day is coming and it will be completely justified.

Now, let’s be clear here, son. People get dumped everyday, B. On the real, unless a relationship ends in marriage or some type of domestic situation, then someone is getting the axe. It’s just the nature of the game, man. With that being said, why the fuck would you use getting dumped to justify why you killed that man? Ok, so, your ex-girlfriend doesn’t want you anymore. What the fuck does that have to do with Robert Godwin? Shit, not only did you take that man’s life over some bullshit, but you had the audacity to commit this travesty on Facebook Live. Good fucking Lord, man! You’ve literally taken being a piece of shit to the next level, bruh.

To make matters worse, you dragged your mother, Maggie Green, into the nonsense. I mean, you really had the nerve to tell her that you’re shooting people because you’re mad at your woman? Man, what kind of hoe ass behavior is this, son? Out of the countless ways people find to get over heartbreak, this is your solution?! Look, your ex-lady really dodged a fucking bullet, no pun intended. Clearly, she’s better off not dealing with your unstable ass. No real man would act in such a manner, bruh. She absolutely made the right decision.

In the end, this manhunt can only last for so long, man. Eventually, the authorities are going to catch up to you and you deserve whatever brand of justice they plan on dishing out. Ultimately, no one is going to feel sorry for you, son. All in all, fuck you very much, bitch!

Sincerely,

A man who’s disgusted by your very existence

A Letter To People Who Regret Voting For Donald Trump

Dear Regretful Donald Trump Voters,

I’ve never been one to hold back or mince my words, so I’ll just get straight to the point. If you already regret voting for Trump, I don’t feel sorry for you. Sounds harsh, but I wholeheartedly mean that. If you’re one of the people who has suddenly realized Trump is a con artist, I have no sympathy for you. This man showed you who he was the entire election and you refused to believe him. So, every terrible thing he does from here on out is on YOUR head.

Look, at this point, I’m not even going to reiterate all of the awful things he’s said or done. I’ve done that enough times on this blog. However; let’s talk about all of the promises he made to YOU and already backtracked on.

First, there was all of the bullshit he said about Hillary Clinton. For the entire duration of his campaign, Trump claimed he was going to lock Clinton up for her “crimes.” What were her crimes exactly? Having a private email server. Regardless of the fact the FBI determined she had broken no laws, Trump still asserted that he was coming for her head. Now, since all of you Clinton-haters LOVED the idea of putting her in an orange jumpsuit, you flocked to the orange-faced clown. With all of that being said, what does he do when he wins? Completely abandon the notion of pursuing any charges against her. One point for you Trump supporters.

Next, there was his stance on Obamacare. For YEARS, he railed about how much of a failure the ACA was. His entire healthcare platform was built around repealing the law and replacing it with something “better.” In any case, just a few days after being elected, Trump talked about possibly keeping parts of Obamacare. Then, he switched course and said the law was going to be repealed and replaced simultaneously.

Now, here’s the problem: not only do your Republican reps not have a replacement plan, but they don’t even have enough votes to pass anything at all. It takes 60 votes to push a new plan through the Senate and the GOP only has 52 seats. Do you see the issue here? Once again, Trump made a promise he can’t possibly keep. Not to mention, after this past December‘s ACA enrollment period, the states with the highest coverage are the ones that voted for Trump. Are you guys really that stupid? I’ll just take that as a yes, son.

Ultimately, you guys are getting what you asked for. You asked for a liar to be your president and you got one. Let’s see if all of his billionaire cabinet friends will help drain that swamp for you. Good luck suffering through the mess you caused. I’m out.

Sincerely,

Your friendly neighborhood LC

This Is Why Donald Trump Supporters Are Stupid

To begin, no, I don’t feel sorry for calling an entire group of people stupid. Since I’m not Hillary Clinton, I don’t have to apologize for calling folks a “basket of deplorables.” Look, maybe if I say it this plainly, Donald Trump supporters would understand how bad they got conned. Now, while I believe a good number of politicians lie with their campaign promises, most of them at least have the wherewithal to keep the front going. Our President-elect is literally having a “Thank You” victory tour and flatly telling his supporters he was bullshitting about a lot of his rhetoric. In all honesty, if I wasn’t so frightened by a Trump administration, I’d be laughing my ass off right now.

Now, during the Pennsylvania stop of this stupid ass tour, Trump basically let the cat out of the bag in regards to his campaign platform. If we go back to the presidential race, besides his non-specific “Make America Great Again” slogan, Trump continuously talked about “draining the swamp.” Throughout the course of the campaign, he promised his supporters he would rid Washington, D.C. of corruption and remove the influence of Wall Street and other lobbyists from government. Fast forward to today, if anyone with a brain took one look at his cabinet, they’d know he already duped his followers. So far, he’s stocked his team with nothing but bankers, oil men and Nazi, excuse me, alt-right enthusiasts. These moves alone should be enough to show his true intentions, but at his latest rally on Thursday, he took it a step further.

So, during his speech, when Trump brought up his infamous “drain the swamp” slogan, he freely admitted he thought it was corny. In reality, he only kept saying it because he kept getting applause from the crowds. Moving on, Trump literally said the words “I said it like I meant it.” Good fucking Lord, man! He’s literally in a room full of people who voted for him and told them he didn’t mean one of the central themes of his campaign. The only thing crazier than that is the fact people in the audience kept cheering and clapping. Are people that damn dumb, son? Seriously, are Trump supporters that idiotic?! He even said he used to claim the system was rigged, but stopped because he won and doesn’t care anymore. Wow! Fucking wow, man! Like, I couldn’t make this shit up, son! He OPENLY admitted to being a liar and these fools keep clapping for him. It’s fucking mind-boggling!

In the end, I’m a very firm believer in what I said, man. Anyone who voted for Donald Trump is a dumbass. At this point, the man is directly telling people he lied to them and they still won’t turn away from him. Like Silky Johnson said, “I hope all the bad things in life happen to you and nobody else but you.” I’m out.

P.S. I didn’t even touch on the fact that Trump keeps “thanking” African-Americans for supporting him by not voting. In his warped mind, he truly believes that since a few people weren’t sold on Clinton, that automatically meant they were in his corner. I wonder if Kanye West, Jim Brown and Ray Lewis are listening to this bullshit. This is what he really thinks about the Black community, son. Thanks for being pawns in his little game, sellouts. One.
