Shot In His Own Damn Home: The Story Of Botham Shem Jean

Fam, this story makes me so fucking mad! Like, I’m not even sure where to direct my rage, son. I mean, the senseless death of Botham Shem Jean was already bad enough, man. But, now the authorities keep changing the fucking story! Why? To protect one of them own, bruh. Real talk, from the jump I told my wife that they would find a way to get Amber Guyger off of the hook for murder. Now, as it currently stands, I HIGHLY doubt any real justice will be served, people.

Ok, for those who have been living under a rock, Botham Jean was shot in his own damn home. Originally, it was said that Guyger, a Dallas police officer, was coming home after a 14-hour shift. Apparently, she lives on the third floor of this apartment building, but got off on the fourth floor. Next, she tried to use her key on Jean’s door, but of course, it didn’t work. After struggling with the lock, Jean opened the door. From there, she assumed he was an intruder and shot him in the chest. Finally, Jean was pronounced dead after he was taken to the hospital.

Fast forward to today, the “official” story of Jean’s murder is now completely different, son. Now, according to Guyger and her legal team, Jean’s door was slightly “ajar.” Next, when she opened the door, she saw a silhouette in the background. From there, she claims that she gave Jean “verbal commands,” but he ignored them. After that, she shot at Jean two times, hitting him once in the chest.

Listen, there are A TON of things wrong with her story, man. First, am I really supposed to believe that Jean was in his apartment with the door unlocked? Fam, NOBODY does that! Second, what the fuck does she mean “verbal commands?” That was his motherfucking apartment, bruh! This woman trespassed on HIS property and tried to give HIM commands?! For God‘s sake, the fucking gall of this woman, son! On the real, she’s legit trying to victim shame a dude who SHE violated! It’s fucking unnerving, people!

Now, to add insult to injury, two witnesses who live in the building have disputed Guyger’s story. According to them, before the murder occurred, they could hear her banging on the door saying “let me in.” Keeping it a buck, that sounds a lot more logical, son. It makes way more sense that she couldn’t get in the apartment than the theory that Jean left the door unlocked. *Sigh* I’m just fucking tired of police trying to find ways to justify why their officers kill people. It’s fucking disgusting, man!

In the end, fuck Guyger and fuck the Dallas police department! Ultimately, they waited like two days to come up with some bullshit story, fam. By and by, Jean lost his life over nothing. Absolutely nothing, bruh! At the end of the day, Black people aren’t even safe at home, son. Fuck, man! Fuck! LC out.

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.

The Greatest Michael Jackson Video EVER!

Look, let me get straight to the shenanigans, son. I mean, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain Michael Jackson‘s GOATness to anyone, man. Now, since his birthday was yesterday, folks all over social media have been sharing videos of the King of Pop. In any case, I want to give a shout-out to my homie Evan for putting me onto a video he saw on Bryan-Michael Cox‘s Instagram page. All in all, this is bar none the funniest MJ video I’ve ever seen in my life, fam!

Ok, before I continue, I want everyone to watch the YouTube video below. For context, start the clip at 3:52 and watch until the end. It’s essentially the same video that Cox posted on his page. Anyway, during a show in 1996, MJ is performing “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” with Marva Hicks. So, MJ’s already pissed because Hicks is inexplicably singing some of his parts. From there, Brad Buxer, MJ’s music director, misses his cue to end the song. Now, what happens next is without question the most hilarious shit I’ve ever seen during a concert: MJ sing-fires Buxer onstage.

Look, do people understand the magnitude of what I just said? Shit, without missing a beat, MJ sings to Buxer that there’s supposed to be a breakdown in the song. When Buxer doesn’t comply, MJ then adlibs “job gone.” For whatever reason, Buxer STILL doesn’t end the song! Now, after a couple more “breakdown” and “job gone” calls, MJ looks straight at Buxer and sings “Brad, what are you gonna do?” All the while, the audience doesn’t seem to have any idea of what’s happening, bruh. Hell, MJ was such a professional, everyone just assumed it was a part of the show.

Listen, as my dude Evan said, MJ harmonized a termination, son. Like, I can’t even put into words how comical that is, man. Real talk, I’ve been laughing for 30 minutes straight, fam. This video is hands down the most savage firing I’ve ever witnessed. All I can say is, people should’ve known better than to fuck up MJ’s song, bruh.

In the end, Rest In Peace to the King, son. Ultimately, MJ has given us more than enough examples of his legendary-ness. By and by, I’m going to get out of here and get back to watching this video, man. I mean, it’s literally the greatest clip on the internet, fam. That is all. LC out.

Justice Is All We Ask For

So, let me get straight to the point, son. Look, it’s always refreshing when a murderous cop gets what he/she deserves, man. On the real, I feel like naysayers have always gotten the Black Lives Matter movement wrong. Listen, Black people aren’t only concerned with crime when it’s perpetrated by a White person. Frankly, all we want is equal justice under the law, fam. With that being said, I’m ecstatic that Roy Oliver was found guilty of murdering Jordan Edwards.

Now, for those who may have forgot, back in April of 2017, Oliver, a Balch Springs police officer, shot and killed Edwards. Side note, I’m judging anyone who doesn’t remember this story, bruh. Seriously. Anyway, the shooting occurred after Edwards left a house party with his brothers and a couple of friends. On the flip side, Oliver and his squad arrived on the scene after receiving a call about shots being fired. From there, while approaching Edwards’ car, Oliver shot the teen through the window, THEN lied and claimed that the driver tried to run him over. In any case, after his trial, Oliver was found guilty of murder.

Ok, let’s be clear, son. Oliver’s conviction was definitely the right decision. I mean, anybody with a brain could see that this man abused his authority. The problem is, officers like Oliver are almost NEVER punished for their crimes, man. THAT’S the problem we have with the justice system, fam. Listen, if I shot and killed somebody today, best believe my Black ass is going to prison, bruh. But, when an officer does it, we have to fucking beg for the law to do its cotdamn job. All in all, THIS is what the BLM movement has always been about, brethren: accountability.

In the end, I have nothing else to say, son. Ultimately, good riddance to Roy Oliver, man. By and by, I hope he doesn’t drop the soap, fam. All I know is, a dirty cop like him is going to have a hard time behind those walls. At the end of the day, that’s exactly what he deserves, bruh. Rest In Peace, Jordan Edwards. LC out.

Mollie Tibbetts’ Murder Isn’t About Immigration

Keeping it a buck, situations like this is why I hate politics, son. I mean, elected officials will use ANY tragedy to further their agenda, man. Now, in the case of Mollie Tibbetts, her murder has already been politicized, fam. Like, instead of focusing on the tragedy of her death, politicians are using her untimely end to bolster their own arguments. All in all, I don’t want to hear shit about immigration, bruh. Frankly, Tibbetts’ death had NOTHING to do undocumented individuals.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Mollie Tibbetts was murdered in horrible fashion. So, back in July, Tibbetts, a 20-year-old student at the University of Iowa, disappeared after an evening run. Now, up until this past Tuesday, no one knew what happened to her. All of this changed after a body was found, with stab wounds littered all over. As of right now, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, confessed to the crime. Apparently, Tibbetts rebuked his advances and he killed her.

Now, based on the fact that Rivera is from Mexico, immigration haters couldn’t wait to latch onto this story. Donald Trump, Fox News and loads of conservative pundits used this tragedy as an example of why we need new laws and the border wall. Side note, I never thought I’d give Geraldo Rivera props. But, shout-out to him for calling Fox News out on their skewed coverage of this case. Fuck him otherwise, son. In any case, while erroneously attributing Tibbetts’ death to immigration, folks are missing the real factor here: violence against women.

Look, it goes without saying that women are in danger in this country. Day after day, week after week, women are attacked by men for a myriad of bullshit reasons. Real talk, Rivera killed Tibbetts because she didn’t give him what he wanted. Not because he’s from Mexico, man. On the real, this immigration narrative is distracting from the fact that something needs to be done about men’s behavior towards women. I mean, ain’t that what the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are about, fam? Listen, this is a golden opportunity to teach dudes how to be better. Instead, we’d rather bury this scenario in politics.

In the end, fuck agendas, bruh. Ultimately, all of these false narratives keep us from making any real progress, son. By and by, I want to say Rest In Peace to Mollie Tibbetts. At the end of the day, no one deserves to die like that, man. No one. That is all. LC out.

RIP Nia Wilson

*Sigh* Rest In Peace, Nia Wilson. I mean, I don’t know how else to start this post, son. On the real, the word “senseless” isn’t even strong enough to describe her murder, man. Like, there’s literally NO reason why that 18-year-old girl should be dead right now, fam. For God‘s sake, she had her entire life ahead of her, bruh! Instead, a family has to mourn her death after an inexplicable and unjustifiable killing.

Ok, at this point, I hope everyone has heard about Wilson’s story, son. Basically, this past Sunday night, Wilson was riding the BART train in Oakland with two of her sisters. Anyway, as they all stepped off of their train, John Lee Cowell came out of nowhere and attacked the women with a knife. In the wake of the incident, Wilson laid dead while her sister, Lahtifa, was also stabbed. In the blink of an eye, the Wilson family was irreparably damaged.

Now, before I continue, I must admit that I may piss some Black people off right now. In any case, based on all of the digging I’ve done so far, I truly don’t know if Wilson’s murder was racially-motivated. Look, nobody knows what was going through Cowell’s head. Shit, he could be the most racist of the racists, man. However, there’s also A TON of evidence to suggest that this dude was a menace WAY before he senselessly murdered Wilson.

To begin, Cowell has an EXTENSIVE criminal record. In 2009, he pleaded no contest to battery. In 2013, he pleaded no contest again to battery. In 2015, he pleaded no contest to being under the influence of an illegal substance. In 2016, he was charged with theft, drug possession and illegally having tear gas. Those charges were later dropped when he was arrested and convicted for second-degree robbery. For that particular crime, he ended up serving two years in prison. To top it off, his family claims that he was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Look, I don’t want anybody to get my words misconstrued, fam. In no way, shape or form am I condoning what Cowell did to Wilson. Frankly, this dude should not have been allowed to roam the streets, bruh. Hell, how much of a violent history does a person need in order for them to be permanently separated from the rest of us? With that being said, I don’t want us to just jump to conclusions about race, son. Keeping it a buck, the circumstances are already dire enough for us.

Listen, it’s no secret that Black people are ALWAYS targeted in this country. Hell, I can’t even count how many times I’ve written about the consistent and abhorrent bigotry in America. All in all, I can’t rule out racism in this tragedy. But, in this case, I also think that mental health and our terrible criminal justice system played a big part in all of this. Real talk, someone or something needed to keep Cowell under wraps, man. He should’ve NEVER be in a position to carry out such a dastardly deed.

In the end, Wilson’s death is fucking tragic, fam. Ultimately, nothing I’ve said changes the fact that she didn’t deserve to die this way. By and by, NO ONE deserves to die this way, bruh. At the end of the day, my heart goes out to the Wilson family. All I can say is, I can’t even begin to imagine the pain they’re going through, brethren. That is all. LC out.
