You’re Killin’ Me: L.A. Taxpayers

June 7, 2012 · Posted in you're killin me · 15 Comments 

Los Angeles, I know you guys must be pissed about your grocery bag ban, the Lakers losing, and the Clippers getting stomped, but don’t shit on Lil’ Justin Combs. Look, the Kings are in the NHL championship game, and you can always buy fashionable purses for your groceries. Don’t go all April 29, 1992 just because Justin received a $54,000 merit-based scholarship to attend UCLA. Justin is his own person, and he isn’t worth $500 million. Sure he can sell his Maybach to pay for school, but that’s not your problem. He earned that money. Why should he give it back? You’re killin’ me.

Justin earned that money with his grades and his performance on the field. UCLA rewarded him with a $54,000 scholarship. Just because his dad is a millionaire doesn’t mean that he doesn’t deserve a reward for his hard work. For Justin and Diddy, this isn’t about the money. It’s about the reward. The scholarship is like a trophy. People should be happy that the son of a millionaire is actually doing something with his life unlike so many other spoiled millionaire kids. Justin could just live off his dad for the rest of his life. He could always get a menial job at Bad Boy Records. Diddy has done a great job motivating his kid to work hard, and people want to take that away. Winners don’t return their trophies after winning.

Then again, UCLA is struggling money-wise. Tuition keeps climbing and less students are able to afford the school. That doesn’t necessarily mean Justin should give back his scholarship. Like I said, he earned it and it’s survival of the fittest out here. If someone wasn’t good enough to beat Justin and take those $54,000, then that’s his/her fault. I really hate to play the race card, but would this be happening if Justin were the son of a rich white politician? I seriously doubt the media’s involvement in a story like that. Nothing against white people either. This is on the media for blowing things up and making something out of nothing. Even if UCLA is struggling with their finances, that’s not Justin’s problem. He earned that scholarship through years of hard work. High School graduates should learn that the most fit will always survive.

No matter how rich someone is, free stuff is always appreciated. This scholarship wasn’t really free. But hey, Diddy isn’t paying for his son’s education. It’s free. Who doesn’t like free stuff? I know things are tough out there, but that’s not Justin’s fault. He just worked hard and got good grades, and he got a scholarship. It’s not UCLA’s fault either because they’re just giving out a scholarship to a student that earned it. Eventhough it would be nice if the Combs family returned the money and let someone else use it, let’s face it, Diddy spends $54,000 in one night, they don’t have to return anything. The scholarship is their trophy, and Diddy is probably teaching his son to work for his things. Giving back the scholarship would ruin his lesson. Don’t worry about Justin’s money. Worry about your own scholarship. Better yet, why don’t you L.A. taxpayers shift your anger towards all of the undeserving punks misusing their FAFSA money? You’re killin’ me.

Oh yeah, YKM is back for season 2. If you don’t know, now you know. You’re welcome.

    uhh yea except scholarships draw from a pool of available money which means justin accepting $54,000 takes out of that pool. That makes $54,000 unavailable to someone who also deserves the scholarship but may need it more. Not saying justin doesn’t deserve that money, maintaining a high gpa should always be rewarded, but giving it back doesn’t detract from that lesson, it gives someone else without the financial stability of the combs family to go to college as well. Again, not saying he is at fault for anything, taking the scholarship doesn’t make him a bad person, but if I were Justin I would respectfully decline the scholarship. I agree with the fact that the media shouldn’t be involved in his personal decision though.

    @QuezKHH, man you been writing the most dumb ass articles lately. You need to go outside or do something. Watch the playoffs, get a girlfriend, hang with some friends, go to the movies a lot of good movies out but you need to clear your mind and get your style back.
    We don’t care in L.A about Justin Combs at UCLA, the rest of the country does.

    Between this article and that one about Pusha T vs Lil Wayne these have been some biased I’m bored let me type something articles.

    Ha ! Your Killing Me Quez Hating on L.A as a whole than hating on the few people who give a f**k about Justin Combs. I live in LA and I don’t give a f**k whether he takes the scholarship or not because Justin earned it. Besides LA’s taxes are already high he can’t affect us more than everything else has already. I want to read the names you have for people in L.A complaining.

    Nobody in LA complaining at all.. Just blogs are. Quez you need to actually do some work before saying something. The article was nice but it’s not that big of news.. Make a YKM or something about Nicki bailing out on Summer Jam because of Wayne.. That’d be better.

    Im sorry but I don’t agree with this, the person who wrote this is a little off to me. Ok he earned the scholarship thats great, he’s one out of thousands of other students like himself. The difference between him and them is oh yea his dad? duhh. How can you forget his billionaire father. Im not even from L.A. Im a college student from the east and as a student who’s had to leave a n expensive university cause I couldn’t afford it. However this is not about me my point is theres others in my situation who may be even more intelligent and talented than myself who need and deserve to have that money available. Justin Combs is respectable, I respect him as a student. He clearly earned that scholarship but why can’t they give the money back? They don’t need it, help some one else out, but give him the recognition he deserves for working so hard, another type of reward too. All of this was just a thought hope no one takes it the wrong way. Well time for work, you know school, work, school, work. No billionaire father but a very hardworking mother.
