New Music Fridays: LC ‘When The Love Was New’

What’s the word, good people? Welcome back to New Music Fridays, son! Now, I must admit, today’s song represents a little bit of a milestone for me. So, when I began this series, I briefly spoke about how I started an album in 2015. Originally, I was going to release an entire project. However; as we’ve now become accustomed to, I’ve just decided to drop new joints biweekly.

In any case, today is a big deal because this particular song is the 8th and final song I wrote for that album. As a matter of fact, before I scrapped the project, this was the intended, and unfinished, track listing:

  1. Two Eyes
  2. Don’t Stop
  3. Speak Up” (featuring Zeyi)
  4. Talk About It
  5. No Sleep
  6. War
  7. All On Me
  8. “When The Love Was New”

With all of that being said, everyone should know the deal by now. “When The Love Was New” can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. Now, don’t worry, folks. This isn’t the end of New Music Fridays. I’ll still be dropping new heat every two weeks, man. As always, let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, son. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘No Sleep’

Welcome back, good people. Another week, another New Music Fridays, son. At this point, there’s really no need for me to write some long dissertation. Ultimately, I just want everyone to enjoy the music, man. With that being said, the same rules apply, fam. The congregation can listen to “No Sleep” below. The song can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. All I know is, this should be played at high volume, preferably in a residential area. That is all, bruh. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘War’

Welcome back, good people! Here we are again, man. Another Friday, another new jam, fam. Now, at this point, we’ve been down this road a few times. With that being said, there’s no need to write some long thesis, son. In any case, everyone can listen to “War” below. Per usual, the song can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. Let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, bruh. LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘Speak Up’ (Feat. Zeyi)

Welcome back, good people! LC is here with another edition of New Music Fridays. Now, for this week’s release, I’m dropping a new joint with my dude Zeyi. Look, I’m feeling good as shit today, so why not put out a track where I’m talking my shit, son? With that being said, everyone should know the deal now. Per usual, the song can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. Let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, man. Shout-out to Zeyi for the bars. Yessir! 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.

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.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘All On Me’

Yeeeeah, buddy! The fourth installment of New Music Fridays is here, son! Now, before we get to the music, I want to just tell everyone a quick story. So, anybody who’s been paying attention to this series knows that I don’t usually hype up the music. For me, I’d rather just put the tracks out and let people evaluate them for themselves. Shit, keeping it a buck, as obsessive compulsive as I am, it’s a miracle that I’m releasing songs in the first place, son. With that being said, I’m just happy to get the music out there.

Moving on, this particular song is a little bit different for me. Now, anyone who really follows the blog knows that I deal with clinical depression. I’ve written about it in the past as a way of taking away the stigma. In any case, the lyrics to this song were inspired by one of my low points a few years ago. The second verse in particular is a honest attempt at letting people into my brain. This includes references to drinking/smoking as a way to try and dull whatever I was feeling at the time. Now, don’t worry, people, I’m more than good at the moment. However; this song takes on a more personal meaning because of the underlying subject matter.

Ok, now that I’ve ranted my way through a music release, let’s just get to the song, son! As always, the song can be heard below on both SoundCloud and YouTube. Also, it’s available for download on SoundCloud. Happy Friday, folks! LC out.
