#FLABFriday | To Catch A Cheater: Is It Cheating If You Don’t Get Caught?

As of lately, it seems as though the conversation of cheating has been surfacing the lives of many. The question of loyalty is a typical point of focus, even in our world of pop culture. C. Breezy had something to say about it. Y.G. and Drake had something to say about it. Trey Songz had something to say about it. Everybody has pretty much had something to say about it recently, and it really makes you wonder… who really is loyal these days?

Guys cheat on girls. Girls cheat on guys. Girls cheat on girls. Everybody is pretty much cheating on each other these days and it’s becoming an epidemic that really needs to be observed.

As unfortunate as it is, it never ceases to amaze me at the mindset that our generation has on cheating. From those that I know, my male friends seem to think that cheating is worse when females do it and my female friends seem to think that cheating is a tool of revenge. So in the end, I’m never surprised when I find that most of the people in my generation are single. Haha.

The most unbelievable concept however, is the thought that cheating doesn’t count if you don’t get caught. I have ran into similar situations with my guy friends where they have caught their girlfriend cheating, and completely ostracize her & label her as “unloyal”, when they themselves have skeletons in their own closet that have not been dug up yet. My main response to them is always “But you cheated too.” And then, as surprising as it is every time, the main response I get back is, “It doesn’t matter. I didn’t get caught.”

As crazy as it sounds, this statement has volume behind it & it really shows how people think in this generation. People seem to think cheating isn’t cheating if you don’t get caught and it really makes you question the maturity of our relationships. Its almost as if we’re playing a game with each other. We wanna see who will get caught cheating first or we wanna be the first one to break up so that we don’t lose face. Love has become a sick, crazy game and the rules have been completely changed by amateurs.

Considering the topic at hand, what do you think about cheating? Is cheating really cheating if you don’t get caught? Tell us what you think with a comment below and share with us your thoughts on this topic.

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY | TUPAC – 2 OF AMERIKAZ MOST WANTED (FT. SNOOP DOGG)

Today’s #ThrowbackThursday is being attributed to one of the most legendary rappers in the history of Hip Hop… Tupac Shakur.

For those they may not know, “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” is attributed to being one of the last videos that Tupac ever did, as it was recorded four months before his untimely death in September of 1996.

The video was filmed by Gobi M. Rahimi, one of Tupac’s production partners, and the song itself was featured on Tupac’s All Eyez On Me album. The video is notorious for the many references that can be found throughout the duration of the video. In the beginning, Tupac uses a reference from the scene in Scarface where Tony confronts his alleged killer and relates it to the 1994 shooting that Tupac experienced, in which Biggie was accused of setting up. The video is also meant to represent celebration. Snoop had recently been acquitted of murder charges, while Tupac had just been released from serving time for an alleged sexual assault case. Bring these elements together and you definitely have yourself one heck of a gangsta party.

All in all, this video is definitely one of the most classic Hip Hop videos of all time. If you haven’t seen it for yourself, just click on the video above and enjoy the “west coast” vibe it brings you.
