Spoiler: Season 2 Of ‘On My Block’ Has Fans Screaming With Joy And Fear

Netflix

Our collective consciousness is firmly placed in the second stage of grief at Netflix for canceling One Day at a Time. One of the shows we have left from Netflix for YA Latino representation is On My Block.

To recap Season 1: Jamal found the Roller World money. Monse found her birth mother and doesn’t know it yet. Diego didn’t kill Tyrell as ordered by his older brother/ gang leader Spooky. Tyrell showed up at Olivia’s quince and shot Ruby and Olivia. ☹️

SPOILER: We have all the spoilers. ⬇️

You may be able to reduce your therapy costs by 70 percent by just skimming through these spoilers. That’s because fans have all the funniest memes to cope.

The fans have spoken: nobody is missing Olivia this season.

Sure, some people are mourning the death of Olivia but so many On My Block Fans are not. Twitter has not a tear to shed over the death of the character.

Even Kehlani, Goddess Herself, came out as a major fan of On My Block.

As tragic as episode one of Season Two was, the comic relief was geared toward Latinos and minorities. When it was revealed Ruby was planning to give Olivia a Spanish-English dictionary for her birthday? 😂

We’re here to see masculinity presented as a strong display of feelings.

Caption: “i’m ngl, seeing both ruby and cesar express their pain with tears is so beautiful to me. it’s nice to see a change in masculinity in shows/movies. it’s ok for boys to show emotion. it only shows that they’re human. i love you #onmyblock!”

When we first read this, our hearts dropped, too.

These On My Block fans have no chill when it comes to showing their love for their favorites. However, is there even a lie in this tweet? Honestly, we ask you to let us know.

Even Jason Genao came out on Twitter to thank the fandom.

His Twitter words exactly: “I want to say thank you for those who are showing support. This version of Ruby is for those who are told emotions are for the weak and more so those struggling with mental health. Your platform is now too big for them to ignore. We see you (we see you jasmine voice)”

Plus, we get to see how Ruby and Jasmine’s friendship evolves without Julia (forgive me, ghost).

The two have been longtime neighbors and Jasmine makes extra effort to comfort Ruby during his grieving process. Then she puts on a Bachelor’s-esque show for Ruby to get a date to the dance. Don’t worry–Monse threw feminist shade all over it.

The fandom elevates Jasmine to A-list performance and full level obsession this season.

@PricklyPundit was 100 percent here for Jasmine: “She was excellent as the comic relief in S1, but only 3 episodes in to S2 and my love for Jasmine is officially solidified. The glimpse into her home life and overall outlook on life was done really well and added such nuance to an already amazing character. #OnMyBlock

Turns out, Jasmine is living in Enlightenment.

This season, we learn about her family life and how she has the strength to be fearlessly herself. She lives for herself–nobody else.

Jamal had a total and complete meltdown over having that much cash.

He didn’t tell his friends about the Roller World money because he felt it was too insensitive. We know he felt this way because he talked about it extensively with the gnomes from Julio.

He set up cameras in his room and watched himself roll around in the piles of cash.

Boy was having legitimate paranoia about being rolled up on if anyone found out he had $200k in a duffel in his laundry bin.

THEN, THERE WAS THIS REVELATION:

Cardi B’s got at least another 20 years before she becomes an abuelita but we have a glimpse into the future now. 😂

Let’s talk about when Monse discovered Julia was actually her mother, Selena.

No, this is not a telenovela, but it might as well be. Monse was telling Julia about how her name is a mashup of her parents’ name and Julia comes out with this. 🤭

We’re all pissed off at how that relationship ended…

How could Selena just start crying in response to her daughter asking if she could have left her if she looked more like her (read: white).

Selena told her friends that Monse’s dad was abusive.

Bye, Becky. Monse could never live with her mom when her new friends are all afraid of her dad.

The gang seems to be unafraid of Spooky this season.

Jamal tried to buy Diego’s protection and Spooky just swiped the money.

Spooky: “We’re not going to forget you helped us.”

Jamal: “I don’t care about your good will. I want my money!”

Jamal and Abuelita continue to be the most important friendship on television.

The two found $200,000 together in Season 1 and launder it in Season 2. Iconic.

Oh, and we’re all scarred by the finale.

🚨 SPOILER ALERT 🚨

All four of the kids get kidnapped! We’re all Santos’ to you, Netflix.

Netflix, we’re already gearing up to fight for Season 3.

Now we know to watch and rewatch that over and over, get on social media, and get our brown voices heard. We need this content and we deserve it.

Cypress Hill Will Become First Latino Hip-Hop Group With Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Cypress Hill is set to make history by becoming the first Latino hip-hop group to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Only a limited number of hip-hop acts have ever be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Pharrell, P Diddy, LL Cool J, Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg are among those to receive the honor. It’s the latest accolade for the duo that has left an undeniable impact on hip-hop for the last 30 years.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will present Cypress Hill with the 2,660th star on the iconic sidewalk.

Cypress Hill, comprised of B Real, Sen Dog, DJ Muggs, and Eric “Bobo” Correa, became a huge staple in west coast hip-hop during the early 90’s. The group shot to fame due to their rap classic “Insane in the Membrane.” and the release of their sophomore album, “Black Sunday.” Cypress Hill recently released their ninth studio album, “Elephants on Acid” last year.

The Grammy-nominated group also made prior history by becoming the first Latino hip-hop group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums, selling over 20 million albums worldwide. Their star will be located just miles from where the group formed 30 years ago in South Gate, California.

Cypress Hill will join the likes of other Latino legends honored on the Walk of Fame, including Guillermo del Toro and Selena.

“We are proud to honor the first Latino American hip-hop recording group,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a press release. “They have been successful as a group for three decades and we know they will continue their success for many years to come.”

The induction ceremony will take place on April 18 in front of Greenleaf Restaurant located on Hollywood Blvd. George Lopez and close friend Xhibit will be among the guest speakers at the ceremony.

The group has made an impact beyond just music on the Latino community in southern California.

Cypress Hill has continually given back to their hometown of South Gate throughout their careers. Whether it be through scholarships, work with organizations like Guns for Goods, Wounded Heroes of America, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The gourp has also been huge advocates for legal marijuana. Just last year the group launched a cannabis line alongside the release of their latest studio album.

Cypress Hill has also inspired countless of other west-coast rappers through their unique sounds and production style. The honor is indicative of the social and musical impact the group has had for the last 30 years.
