Black Thought Is Way Too Good At Rapping

So, the EP is real, son. The collaboration between Black Thought and 9th Wonder is actually real, man. All I know is, even though the EP has only five songs, it’s EXACTLY what I want to hear from both of these gentlemen. Now, as expected, 9th holds down the production side. However, it’s still awe-inspiring how fucking great Thought is at rapping, fam. All in all, damn near EVERYONE’s favorite rapper isn’t fucking with this dude, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Thought and 9th put out Streams of Thought, Vol. 1 last Friday. Apparently, this EP is the first in a series between the two legends. Anyway, four of the five songs are produced by 9th, and one is produced by Khrysis. Basically, the EP is a collaboration between Thought and 9th’s Soul Council. In any case, despite only being 17 minutes, Thought manages to pack an insane amount of vocabulary in each verse, son. Like, I’ve never heard a rapper say a name like Dostoyevsky which such ease, man. Keeping it a buck, there’s NO WAY a person can absorb everything that Thought says in one listen, fam. Frankly, this EP needs to be on repeat to catch all of the gems, bruh.

Listen, a rapper is really good at rapping when I don’t even notice that there aren’t really any hooks in the songs, son. Somehow, Thought is getting better and I don’t understand it, man. Like, how can one man be so damn good for so damn long, fam? For reference, The Roots‘s debut album, Organix, came out in May of 1993. Meaning, Thought has been an upper, upper echelon emcee for 25 years, bruh. *Sigh* What the fuck else needs to be said, folks? Not a cotdamn thing!

In the end, salute to that man, Black Thought. Salute to 9th Wonder, son. Ultimately, even though I’m a fan of today’s music, I’m still hyped that lyricists like Thought still exist, man. By and by, we should continue to applaud and champion emcees who’ve mastered the art of rhyming, fam. At the end of the day, that’s what Hip-Hop was founded on, bruh: saying the dopest shit possible. That is all. LC out.

This Is Why Donald Trump Supporters Are Stupid

To begin, no, I don’t feel sorry for calling an entire group of people stupid. Since I’m not Hillary Clinton, I don’t have to apologize for calling folks a “basket of deplorables.” Look, maybe if I say it this plainly, Donald Trump supporters would understand how bad they got conned. Now, while I believe a good number of politicians lie with their campaign promises, most of them at least have the wherewithal to keep the front going. Our President-elect is literally having a “Thank You” victory tour and flatly telling his supporters he was bullshitting about a lot of his rhetoric. In all honesty, if I wasn’t so frightened by a Trump administration, I’d be laughing my ass off right now.

Now, during the Pennsylvania stop of this stupid ass tour, Trump basically let the cat out of the bag in regards to his campaign platform. If we go back to the presidential race, besides his non-specific “Make America Great Again” slogan, Trump continuously talked about “draining the swamp.” Throughout the course of the campaign, he promised his supporters he would rid Washington, D.C. of corruption and remove the influence of Wall Street and other lobbyists from government. Fast forward to today, if anyone with a brain took one look at his cabinet, they’d know he already duped his followers. So far, he’s stocked his team with nothing but bankers, oil men and Nazi, excuse me, alt-right enthusiasts. These moves alone should be enough to show his true intentions, but at his latest rally on Thursday, he took it a step further.

So, during his speech, when Trump brought up his infamous “drain the swamp” slogan, he freely admitted he thought it was corny. In reality, he only kept saying it because he kept getting applause from the crowds. Moving on, Trump literally said the words “I said it like I meant it.” Good fucking Lord, man! He’s literally in a room full of people who voted for him and told them he didn’t mean one of the central themes of his campaign. The only thing crazier than that is the fact people in the audience kept cheering and clapping. Are people that damn dumb, son? Seriously, are Trump supporters that idiotic?! He even said he used to claim the system was rigged, but stopped because he won and doesn’t care anymore. Wow! Fucking wow, man! Like, I couldn’t make this shit up, son! He OPENLY admitted to being a liar and these fools keep clapping for him. It’s fucking mind-boggling!

In the end, I’m a very firm believer in what I said, man. Anyone who voted for Donald Trump is a dumbass. At this point, the man is directly telling people he lied to them and they still won’t turn away from him. Like Silky Johnson said, “I hope all the bad things in life happen to you and nobody else but you.” I’m out.

P.S. I didn’t even touch on the fact that Trump keeps “thanking” African-Americans for supporting him by not voting. In his warped mind, he truly believes that since a few people weren’t sold on Clinton, that automatically meant they were in his corner. I wonder if Kanye West, Jim Brown and Ray Lewis are listening to this bullshit. This is what he really thinks about the Black community, son. Thanks for being pawns in his little game, sellouts. One.
