Pick A Beef, Tariq St. Patrick

Disclaimer: Folks know the drill. Copious amounts of spoilers out here, son.

So, here we are, man. All in all, Power has come to an end and we finally know who killed James St. Patrick. Now, I won’t lie, fam. On the real, I knew who the culprit was all along, bruh. Shit, I’m pretty sure that most of us knew who the culprit was the entire time, son. In any case, after years of being an ungrateful little bastard, it was finally revealed that Tariq St. Patrick, Ghost‘s son and the most annoying character on television, killed his father. All I know is, Tariq’s beef with Ghost never made any fucking sense, people. With that being said, none of his real intentions were cleared up in that final episode.

Look, here’s my issue with Tariq, man. Ok, on face value, I can completely understand a child being upset with their parent for leaving the family. In that case, Tariq has the right to feel a way about Ghost leaving Tasha St. Patrick for Angela Valdes. But, somehow, that resentment led him to a (comical) life of crime and declarations that Ghost “never did anything for [him].” Oh, so I guess living in a penthouse and going to the best schools don’t count. I guess having a carefree life away from the perils that his parents endured doesn’t count. Real talk, this little shit-head never faced any real adversity until he realized that his father loved another woman. *Sigh* In the spirit of Rico from Paid In Full, folks “[get divorced] everyday, B.”

Now, my problem with Tariq’s motive came to a head in this final episode. Listen, right before he shoots Ghost, he says “I wish I could go back, to before you left us for Angela.” So, what’s the real issue, Tariq? Was Ghost always an absentee father (as he falsely claimed), or is Tariq just being a fuckity-fuck because his dad left his mom for a woman who wanted more than a drug dealer’s life. Side note, I never banged with Tasha or Angela, but Tasha couldn’t see past the fucking block, fam. Anyway, the fact of the matter is, Tariq isn’t even sure why he hates his father so much. Regardless, he ends up being the one to take Ghost out of the game.

In the end, Starz can miss me with these Power spinoffs, bruh. Ultimately, if cats like Tasha and Tariq are prominent characters, then I’m ALL of the way out, son. By and by, why would I watch another show with personalities that I can’t fucking stand, man? At the end of the day, Tommy Egan was the only real one on the show. Problem is, he’s dumber than Lloyd Christmas, fam. *Sigh* This show ended up being preposterous, brethren. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Tasha’s fate is hilarious, son. Look, I guess prison is the price to pay for being a shitty ass mother, man. Hell, “teaching Tariq the game” didn’t work out so well, did it? Frankly, Ghost wasn’t shit, but everyone should’ve just let him run off with Angela from the beginning. The way I see it, he would’ve taken care of everyone with those clubs, fam. Alas, pride cometh before the fall, bruh. Good day.

Why Isn’t Tariq St. Patrick Dead Yet?

Disclaimer: Spoilers upon spoilers, brethren. Proceed with caution.

So, let’s just skip the formalities, man. On the real, Tariq St. Patrick might be the worst son in television history. Ok, yeah, I’m probably being a prisoner of the moment, but allow me to cook, son. I mean, I’ve already written about how much of a shit-head this kid is. But sheesh, he just keeps taking his dumbassery to unforeseen levels, fam. All in all, why is this fuckity-fuck still alive, bruh?

Ok, for those who are unaware, I’m currently talking about the show Power on Starz. Now, the show is in its final season and so much tomfoolery is happening, son. Side bar, what the fuck happened to the writing on this show, man? I swear, ever since 50 Cent (aka Kanan Stark) found his way out of that burning building, the plot has gotten more and more nonsensical, fam. In any case, Tariq, James St. Patrick‘s son, has become the most unlikeable muhfucka on my television screen, bruh.

First, I truly don’t understand Tariq’s beef with his father. Yes, Ghost left his mother, Tasha St. Patrick, for another woman. But, if we’re being honest here, that’s his mother’s problem, son. It’s ok to be upset about the breakup of the family, but this little dickhead has taken shit waaaaay too far, man. Now, out of pure disdain for his father, Tariq has entered a life of crime. The problem is, he’s fucking terrible at crime, fam!

Seriously, let’s quickly rundown the resume of this baby “kingpin.” First, thanks to Stark, he gets in on the robbery game. As time goes on, Tariq runs afoul of the crooked cop that he’s in cahoots with and ends up getting his twin sister, Raina St. Patrick, killed. Next, Tariq decides he’s going to be a prescription pill dealer. So, he ends up robbing his uncle, Tommy Egan, for product. From there, when he runs out of product for his distributor, Vincent Ragni, he ends up getting held for ransom. Why? Because he tried to pass off baby aspirin as the prescription pills.

The worst part is, in regards to the ransom plot, this dumb muhfucka actually thinks he’s the mastermind behind the plan. Real talk, Tariq is too stupid to realize that Ragni was going to murk him the first chance he got. On top of all of that, he’s essentially working with Egan to kill his own father. *Sigh* Keeping it a buck, I can’t even express how many different ways I want to hurt this kid. All I know is, if Tariq was my son, I’d murder him and start from scratch, bruh.

In the end, I don’t know what’s worse, son: Tariq or the writing on this show. Ultimately, I’ve dedicated too much time to turn back now, man. By and by, I have to see how this fuckery is going to end, fam. All I can say is, if Tariq St. Patrick survives this show, I’m going to be fucking PISSED, bruh! At the end of the day, dudes like him are why I hate teenagers, brethren. I’m already sharpening up my Jiu Jitsu to handle my kids, if necessary. That is all. LC out.
