CThaGod's Concrete Journal: To Tweet Or Not To Tweet, That Is The Question

We snatched up The Breakfast Club's say-all antagonist for a weekly blog that's tougher than concrete. Visit every Thursday for Charlamagne's latest rants and musings. 



"It's Hard Not To Kill Niggas, It's Like A Full Time Job Not To Kill Niggas." Jay Z spit that in 97, back when shit was REAL. When you couldn't just talk all crazy and reckless about someone and not expect them to come see you. That line Jay Z spit was from the perspective of a hustler who was out there getting big money and couldn't risk his fortune on some lame in the street running his mouth. Basically what Hov was saying was, "I hear you suckas talking and I would love to come see your punk ass but I'm showing restraint because I don't want to fuck up my money."

Fast Forward to 2011 and the crazy reckless talk that lames do about people in positions of power is still here it's just not in the streets so much.  Now the bullshit has gone digital. That's why I've repositioned Jay Z's classic bar and turned it into this, "It's Hard Not To Tweet Niggas, It's Like A Full Time Job Not To Tweet Niggas."  Don't front we've all been there.  You log onto your twitter, open up your @ replies and you see a bunch of people you don't even know saying the most disrespectful shit to you ever!  This is shit that you know they would never, ever say to you face to face.  All you want to do is reply back to these lames in a more disrespectful manner because you're offended, but we have to learn to not take offense because that which offends you only weakens you and causes you to create the same negative energy that offended you in the first place.

I don't mind some one's opinion if that opinion is coming from a good place. You can say The Breakfast Club on Power 105 1 sucks, you can makes jokes about my personal appearance, you can say that you think I have no talent and none of that bothers me. What does bother me is when blatant G Codes get violated. See I was born in 1980 and the era I grew up in you couldn't tell another man "Suck Your Dick" or call another man a "Faggot" or wish death upon a person or that person's family unless you were absolutely ready to fight, period.  These 90's babies have no concept of that.  They get on the Internet and these cowards sit behind a computer all day, in the comfort of their mother or grandmother's house and talk that shit and honestly there is nothing we can do about it and that is what's frustrating. The fact that someone you don't know can disrespect you in that manner and you can't go pistol whip them. Only thing you can do is Tweet them back and that's what these little Twitter lames want because THEY HAVE NO LIVES...

Beyonce Trolls Fans By Releasing Tongue-In-Cheek 'Formation' Tour Merch

While Beyonce was able to whet the Beyhive’s insatiable appetites with the Homecoming documentary chronicling her highly-favored Coachella performance, it looks like they’re still hungry for more.

It’s been nearly three full years since Bey embarked on the Formation World Tour, and fans have demanded concert footage of the show for virtually the entirety of those three years, to no avail.On the merch section of her website, new apparel advertising the Formation World Tour is available for purchase, and it’s delightfully petty.

Shirts adorned with “Where Is The FWT DVD?” is written all over the shirt, much to the chagrin of those who are eager to know the answer to that question. They are sold in white, gray, pink and light green, and go for $40 a pop.

Fear not, fans. There could be an answer about the footage's whereabouts sooner rather than later. As we reported, Bey signed a $60 million deal with Netflix, which will reportedly distribute three projects with the superstar. Two of those projects are carefully under wraps, but with the anniversary of the Formation World Tour’s start around the corner (April 27), we’d recommend you to stay on your toes.

Lemonade, the album accompanying the FWT, will be released to streaming services outside of Tidal on April 23, the third-anniversary of the album’s release.


A first look at @Beyonce's 'WHERE IS THE FWT DVD TEE' merch following the premiere of her @netflix #Homecoming documentary.

Kylie Jenner Teases New Travis Scott Song In Makeup Promo

Kylie Jenner got a little help from her boyfriend Travis Scott in order to promote Kylie Cosmetics’ latest KYBROWS eyebrow pencil. In an ad promoting the upcoming product, Jenner utilizes the “SICKO MODE” musician’s reportedly-unreleased song as background music. In the trippy track, Scott says “she fill my mind up with ideas, I’m the highest in the room, hope I make it out of here…” While we’re not sure if new music is certainly on the way from the Grammy-nominated rapper, Jenner’s KYBROWS drops next week (April 29). Scott’s most recent project, ASTROWORLD, was released in 2018, and he continues to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His February ASTROWORLD tour stops at Los Angeles’ The Forum added him to the list of artists who have sold out the venue more than once in a 12-month span.

A NYPD Cop Falsely Arrested A Black Man Lied On The Paperwork, But Still Has His Job

A New York police officer has faced no punishment for falsely arresting a black man and lying on his police report about what a witness statement.

In June 2016, officer Xavier Gonzalez arrested investment adviser Darryl Williams at the 125th Street and Lexington Avenue subway station. Gonzalez alleged Williams, 58 at the time, pickpocketed straphangers on a 4 train.

Gonzalez was undercover at the time and wrote in his report that Anthony Osei, who was also on a northbound 4 train, said Williams stole his phone. However, Osei, a paint shop clerk, told the New York Daily News Gonzalez lied.

When Willaims sued the city and the NYPD over the arrest, Osei, swore in an affidavit, reviewed by The Daily News, he didn't tell officers Williams stole his phone.

“A cop came up to me and said, ‘Did he take your phone?' I said, ‘No, I have my phones and wallet.’ Two weeks later, I get a call from the prosecutor. I told them the same thing."

In court, Osei testified on Williams' behalf stating "I defended him (Williams) because it was the right thing to do.”

Williams worked at the Sanitation Department for nearly two decades when he was arrested. He had private clients and his financial license was suspended for two months. He spent $1,500.

There's a process called “arrest overtime” in which an arrest made toward the end of a cop's shift helps bolster his or her overtime pay. It's a beloved practice that drives up a cop's pension.

“I have no trust in cops anymore,” said Williams, 60, now retired. “He’s putting perfectly innocent people in handcuffs. People who don’t have the resources I have, they could go to jail for something they didn’t do."
