Damn, Juice WRLD

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m well-versed in Juice WRLD‘s discography. I mean, I fuck with “Lucid Dreams” and I fuck with “Empty,” but I’m not going to perpetrate like his music resonated with me like it did with younger cats. But, that’s neither here nor there, man. The fact is, it’s fucking sad that a 21-year-old died, fam. All in all, he was way too young and had too much to live for, bruh.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Juice WRLD passed away on Sunday. Now, according to reports, he suffered a seizure after landing at Chicago‘s Midway International Airport. As of right now, a cause of death hasn’t been determined. From what I’ve read, an autopsy will be performed today (Monday). All I can say is, I hate to make assumptions, but it’s hard for me not to speculate that drugs may have played a part in this.

Look, since Juice stepped on the scene, he talked about his past drug (ab)use. Shit, he openly confessed to sipping lean and popping various pills like Percocet and Xanax. On top of that, his lyrics were always littered with references to his pain and discontent. Real talk, I remember listening to his second album, Death Race for Love, and being uncomfortable with his tales of unhappiness. Listen, as a 34-year-old dude, I couldn’t help but wonder why he was so down in his songs. Then, I had to remember where I was at 21, dealing with depression, and I couldn’t help but empathize, son.

Now, to be clear, I have no proof that drugs had anything to do with Juice’s death, man. Hell, he could’ve passed from some undiagnosed health issue. But, given the context of his music, I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility, fam. Regardless, Juice was a young and talented dude who was just getting started, bruh. All I know is, 21 is waaaaaaay too fucking young to die, son. Frankly, he barely got to live at all, brethren.

In the end, I just want to send my condolences to his friends and loved ones. Ultimately, a situation like this will never be an easy pill to swallow. By and by, I may be getting soft as I get older, but anyone dying this young is just sad as fuck, son. At the end of the day, I hope we all realize that life isn’t guaranteed for any of us. So, I pray that we all live in the most meaningful way possible. Rest In Peace, Juice WRLD. That is all. LC out.

I Blame The Music For Lil Peep’s Death

So, I won’t lie, son. I know almost nothing about Lil Peep, man. On the real, I can’t name an album, sing a hook or describe a beat, fam. However; I was aware of him because of my relentless pursuit of “the new” on music blog sites. With that being said, I was a little alarmed when I learned of his death, bruh. I mean, if early reports are true, then he might’ve died from a drug overdose. Now, if that’s the case, then I wholeheartedly blame the music for this shit, folks. All in all, waaaaay too much fuck shit is glorified in a lot of these songs.

Ok, before I continue, let me get one thing out of the way, son. Yes, I’m fully aware of the fact that questionable behavior has been perpetuated in music since its inception. Shit, when I was growing up in the 1990s, damn near every rapper claimed to be a Tony Montana-level drug dealer, man. However; we’re living in a time right now where drug abuse is the “coolest” thing to do, fam. Look, musicians have always done drugs, but I can’t recall another period where the exaltation is sooooo prevalent, bruh.

Now, if I’m being honest, I’m a part of the problem, son. Hell, I’ve stated multiple times that I’m a big Future fan, man. In any case, he’s one of the main proponents of this drug culture, fam. Like, he just had a Top 5 hit where the chorus talks about Molly and Percocet, bruh. If we’re keeping it a buck here, young kids are listening to and absorbing ALL of the shit, people! Real talk, Lil Peep was only 21 years old! He was CLEARLY raised in this drug-enthusiast era. Frankly, we all need to take responsibility for this shit, folks.

In the end, I’m not saying that artists should completely abandon their subject matter. On the real, if that’s the lifestyle they’re living, then I’d expect to litter their lines with references. However; everyone needs to be mindful of who’s listening to their records. Yeah, it’s easy to say that an artist isn’t a role model until they convince a child to do some wild shit, son. Ultimately, if we’re really going to talk about drugs, then we also need to talk about the downside, man. By and by, it’s all fun and games until someone loses their life, fam. All I can say is, Rest In Peace to Lil Peep, bruh. LC out.

P.S. The dude was on a track called “Overdose,” son. Shit, in my eyes, that’s enough to showcase the issue that I’m talking about, man. *Sigh* As a culture, we all need to do better and monitor the bullshit that we’re feeding to the next generation, fam. That is all.

Get Miley Cyrus The F*ck Outta Here!

Now, before I drag Miley Cyrus to Hell in an Uber, I want everyone to take a good look at the picture above. Yeah, the clown in that photo is the same Ronald McDonald who’s now criticizing Hip Hop. I mean, this chick can’t be serious, right? Shit, after all of her culture vulture behavior, she has some fucking nerve, son. The way I see it, Cyrus is just another example of White people using Black culture for their own benefit. With that being said, she can take her hypocrisy and go back to the set of Hannah Montana.

So, for anyone who missed it, Cyrus recently did an interview with Billboard magazine. Amongst a variety of topics, she decided to give her (unwarranted) two cents on Rap music. Apparently, she has decided to move away from the genre because there’s too much “come sit on my dick, suck on my cock” imagery in the lyrics. All in all, in her own words, she is “so not that.”

Ok, look, I will never be the guy to pretend like Hip Hop doesn’t love the debauchery. Hell, everyone knows how much of a Future fan I am, and his current hit song literally repeats “Molly, Percocet” in the chorus. With that being said, Miley Cyrus needs to have ALL of the seats ever constructed in human history. Shit, for someone criticizing an entire culture, SHE’S the one with a looooooong history of degrading and vulgar behavior.

Look, this is the same woman who was obsessed with twerking. This is the same woman who used Black women as props in her performances. This is the same woman who simulated fucking a foam finger at the Video Music Awards. This is the same woman who lit a joint onstage during the Europe Music Awards. This is the same woman who got Mike WiLL Made-It to executive produce her Bangerz album because she wanted an “urban” sound. This is the same woman who had her breasts out in damn near every outfit she wore. Now she’s fucking better than us? Man, if this chick doesn’t get the flying fuckity-fuck out of our faces! We can see right through her White Privilege. Clearly, Hip Hop was only cool when she could pillage it for monetary gain.

In the end, THIS is exactly why Black people are so testy with cultural appropriation. Vultures turn on us just as quickly as they try to emulate us. Shit, Justin Bieber really thought he was Black until he started running into the police. Side note, his Journals compilation album is fucking flawless, son. However; that’s a conversation for another day. In any case, it’s hard for us to trust an outsider’s motives when people like Cyrus pull shit like this. Ultimately, I pray that Miley disappears into the ether, never to be heard from again. LC out.
