We Never Knew Kanye West

Look, let me keep it a buck, son. Everything we ever thought we knew about Kanye West was a lie, man. The image he portrayed on all of his early albums was a lie, fam. On the real, I honestly believe we’re seeing the real him right now. For me, it’s no coincidence that when he became wealthy he began rejecting everything he previously stood for. Shit, he might be the biggest example of who I was talking about in my “Money Can’t Buy ‘Woke’” post, bruh. All in all, his White House meeting with Donald Trump was one of the most damaging things I’ve ever seen, folks.

Now, like I’ve said before, my real beef with Kanye is his gross lack of knowledge. Like, he picks the most public places and displays an INCREDIBLE misunderstanding of the issues. Real talk, when it comes to all of the fuckery he said yesterday, I don’t even know where to begin, son. I mean, we could talk about his thoughts on North Korea. He gave Trump credit for “solving” Barack Obama‘s biggest problem, despite the fact that North Korea hasn’t actually given up ANY of their nukes yet. Hell, they don’t even have a timeline for shutting down their damn nuclear program yet, man!

Moving on, we could talk about Kanye’s misguided views of Black people on welfare. Shit, can someone please tell him that White women represent the largest number of welfare recipients? Like, these are facts, brethren. Next, we could talk about the fact that he likened his MAGA hat to a Superman cape. Even worse, he said he couldn’t get behind Hillary Clinton‘s “I’m With Her” slogan because he was a dude. So, his “manhood” wouldn’t allow him to support a woman? He needed “male energy” in order to feel good about himself? My God, his biological father has fucking failed him, bruh. That’s sexism on a baffling level, people.

From there, we could talk about how he brought superstition into his analysis of the 13th Amendment. Son, what the fuck does a building not having a 13th floor have to do with the government’s “right” to treat prisoners like slaves? Sheesh, did I really hear him say that, man? What the fuck is actually going on here?! Lastly, we could talk about his “victim mentality” idea. Essentially, he used this idiotic phrase to recant everything he’s ever said about race relations in this country. Honestly, I think this was the worst part of the entire meeting, fam.

*Sigh* Kanye essentially blamed a “victim mentality” for why he previously criticized George W. Bush. He blamed a “victim mentality” for why Black people are upset about police brutality. Look, I guess getting murdered by the state with no reprisal has nothing to do with why we’re mad, bruh. Listen, this fool really brought up Black-on-Black crime for why we shouldn’t be upset with police. Newsflash, Kanye: ALL races are predominantly killed by members of the same fucking race! He would know that if he EVER read anything! Fuck, man! I didn’t think this dude could still make me angry, but I’m fucking livid! Like, he went to the cotdamn White House and said all that bullshit, son!

In my eyes, one of the main issues here is Kanye’s wealth. Only a wealthy person can afford the luxury of no longer identifying. Now, let me be clear, man: I’m not saying that money is a bad thing. Hell, I want a lot of it too, fam. However, Kanye wasn’t talking this shit when he was just a dude from Chicago. Frankly, he got rich and COMPLETELY forgot about the trial and tribulations of everyday people. He no longer has to be affected by the stop-and-frisk tactics that Trump wants to enact. He no longer has to worry about possibly dying at a traffic stop. He no longer has to worry about being mistreated by the justice system. So, he no longer gives a flying fuck about our pain, bruh.

In the end, the line in the sand has been drawn, son. Before, I was on some “I can’t fuck with Kanye” shit. Now, I’m on some “I can’t even fuck with you if you fuck with Kanye” shit. Ultimately, the music doesn’t matter, man. By and by, I don’t give a fuck if he drops another classic tomorrow. At the end of the day, I CANNOT and WILL NOT support a man who tries so hard to disparage the people who gave him a career and a platform. So, once and for all, fuck Kanye West, fam! That is all. LC out.

Do We Want The Righteous Or The Ratchet?

So, to begin, the above picture has little to do with the premise of this post. Frankly, I’m using the images of Ayesha Curry and Cardi B as a means of trolling. With that being said, I have a real question for all of my readers. Does everyone out there want the righteous or the ratchet? I ask that because I always notice the difference in response between posts about political/social issues and posts about pop culture. All I want to know is, is celebrity more important than the issues that affect our everyday lives?

Now, before I continue, let me keep it a buck. On the real, I’m thankful for ANYONE who reads this blog. I mean, I’m wholeheartedly surprised that folks pay attention to my random ramblings. In any case, as people could probably tell, I’ll talk about any and everything on this platform. Frankly, this blog is essentially a snapshot of my free association writing. So, I will continue to touch on a wide variety of topics. However; I do find it odd/slightly disheartening that people would rather read about things like Rap beef than police brutality.

Look, let me be clear, son. Regardless of what I write about, I’ve gained a base that will support me. I mean, that’s fucking beautiful, man! I check my analytics everyday and do the Carlton Dance out of pure joy. With that being said, it scares me that sensationalism seems to be more important than reality. While I thoroughly enjoy making fun of pop culture fuckery, I also want people to take a greater interest in substantial issues. Being honest, in the grand scheme of things, speculation about Kim Kardashian‘s ass shouldn’t trump healthcare, pun intended.

In the end, I’m sorry if I’m coming off a bit preachy here. On the real, that’s truly not my intention, man. Listen, I’m really no better than anyone else, son. Basically, I’m just a random dude with an internet connection who happens to care. Ultimately, my only goal is to make everyone out there aware of what’s happening around us. Now, don’t worry, I’ll keep making fun of our celebrities when they do dumb shit, fam. However; I just want people to care about the righteous as much as we seem to care about the ratchet. That is all. LC out.
