New Music Fridays: LC ‘Here & Now’ & ‘Legacy’

Ok, before anybody asks, no, I’m not restarting New Music Fridays per se. In actuality, today’s post was inspired by my recent show, son. Now, I only had a ten-minute set, but I was able to squeeze three songs in there, man. In any case, for those who are familiar with my music, “Two Eyes” was the first song I performed. However, the last two joints I rocked out to were new, fam. So, I feel like it’s only right for me to share them with everyone, bruh.

With that being said, everybody can listen to “Here & Now” and “Legacy” below, son. As always, the songs can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. All I can say is, it’s good to be back in my element, man. Keeping it a buck, based on the amount of time I’ve been away, I was nervous before I got onstage, fam. But, once I got up there, I felt like I was at home, bruh. Shout-out to all of the good people who came to see me. All in all, there will be more shows and more music in the near future, folks. Fuck with your boy! LC out.

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.

Joe Budden For The Win!

So, it’s no secret that I’m a Joe Budden fan, son. I mean, I’ve already written about that on this very site, man. Shit, even before The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal, I was there for his debut album and entire Mood Muzik series. In any case, after all of these years, it’s super dope to see what he’s been able to accomplish with his podcast, fam. As of right now, I just hope that his new deal with Spotify works out for the best. All I know is, Budden might have the best rebrand in history, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Budden just announced that he teamed up with Spotify to distribute his podcast. Now, according to the details, the show will be released exclusively through the streaming site, but will remain free for the listeners. Furthermore, Budden will now release two episodes per week, but still update his YouTube channel with content. Lastly, all of these changes will take place in September.

Keeping it a buck, I don’t know what else to say, son. Hell, this is just a dope ass move for Budden, Rory and Mal. Listen, I’ve been tuned into the podcast from the beginning (word to Marisa Mendez). So, I’ve seen the show through all of its incarnations, man. On the real, Budden’s podcast and The Joe Rogan Experience are my favorite joints to listen to, fam. With that being said, it’s about damn time that Budden and company got some recognition, bruh.

In the end, shout-out to Joe Budden for staying the course, son. Ultimately, he’s done AND been through a lot of bullshit along the way. Needless to say, he’s found a way to make it all work in the end. Shit, the New York Times just likened him to Howard Stern, but it wasn’t necessary, man. At the end of the day, Budden’s crazy ass is finally getting acknowledgement for being himself. That is all. LC out.

So, I Was On A Podcast…

So, I’m going to keep this brief, son. Basically, I was recently featured on a podcast, man. With that being said, I want to give a major shout-out to my homie, Huey Booker. For whatever reason, he thought I’d be a good guest on his The Book of Huey podcast. In any case, I was featured on his “Black Men Speak, Vol. 1: Legacy” episode. On it, we talked about a variety of topics, ranging from marriage to fatherhood to my blog. In addition, we spoke about a few of the lessons learned from Black Panther. Hell, he even asked me about my time on Ask A Black Man with MadameNoire. All in all, we covered a lot of bases and spoke pretty candidly.

Now, all of the fine folks out there can listen to the episode below. Side note, now that I’ve done a podcast, I’m putting the pressure on Sydnee Washington and Marie Faustin to put me on their The Unofficial Expert show. Look, I’m just saying, fam. Anyway, The Book of Huey will be available on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher, etc. However; I’m posting the SoundCloud link below. Either way, get down with the getdown and listen to Black men keeping it a buck. That is all. LC out.

The End Of ‘New Music Fridays’

So, we’ve come to the end of an era, folks. First off, I want to thank everyone who’s supported me through my New Music Fridays experiment. Since March of 2017, I decided to put out a new song every two weeks. This is mainly because I’m a crazy person who likes to overwork himself. In any case, I might’ve missed a couple of weeks over the course of a year, but I’m happy to say that I still put out 16 songs I’m proud of. With that being said, I’ve decided to piece all of my songs together into one compilation album.

Now, without further ado, everyone can listen to The Charlemagne Renaissance below. Keep in mind, this is an unmastered version of the album. Ultimately, I’m going to get it mastered and put it on all of the streaming services. For now, folks can get a basic gist of my brand of music. Anyway, the album can be streamed on SoundCloud below. All in all, I would love to get everyone’s feedback, so feel free to drop a note or a comment, son.

Lastly, this isn’t the end of my musical journey. Basically, I felt like this series had run its course and I want to move on to other plans. By and by, I have big goals for 2018 and I’ll definitely share them as things start to happen. Ok, I think I’ve rambled enough, man. Let’s just get to the music, fam. Yessir! LC out.

New Music Fridays: LC ‘A Blind Eye’

What’s the word, good people? Yes, I know that I’ve been gone for a week or so. Look, I’m on vacation, son. Every now and then, a brother needs to breathe, man. In any case, I couldn’t let this year end without one last post, fam. In addition, it’s only right that my last post for 2017 is a New Music Fridays thingamajig. With that being said, let’s get to the music, bruh. As always, folks can listen to “A Blind Eye” below. Per usual, the track can be streamed/downloaded on SoundCloud and streamed on YouTube. Now, let’s keep the proceedings proceeding, people. Happy Holidays to everyone! LC out.
