I owe Domingo for this one. Thank you Mingo! My brotherman Domingo Posted this picture up, and it just so happens that a funny little even went down the week before I saw him post this meme today.
So, the other day I am standing in front of the new Micro Center over in Jamaica. I here these two security guards talking. One dude was telling the other lucky listener about his plan to make it in "the game." I have taken the liberty of outlining the dialog for us all...
Rapper/Security Guard: See fam, mah plan is have all da gear firs, feel me? Had da whip, da gear, the shorties you know what im saying?
Eager but dumb security guard: Yeah, I feel dat.
Rapper/Security Guard: Too many of dees fools aint real, they come in talking bout dat, but they aint got shit. Dudes is straight up frontin’.
Eager but dumb security guard: Madd rappers is corny, talkin’ bout it before dey even get in da door.
Rapper/Security Guard: Exactly fam! ( He then claps both of his hands together at this point) dees fool don’t know dey maff. You gotta come in rich cause you gown die broke! Feel me? Nah mean?
Eager but dumb security guard: Hell yeah mah doo (They both then give each other a firm pound) thats what I be liking about your style, you ain’t lying bout what you spit, you comin’ correc!

Eager but dumb security guard: Word! Bout to do me da same, I mean, I don’t spit, I ain’t tryin’ a be Pac, but I see gwap be dat key.
Then both of them looked at me and said: “feel me mah doo, you know how dat hip hop ish be?”
ME: I feel you, everyone is fake as fuck now a days!
THEM: WORD!! You have a good night ma G!
ME: No doubt gentlemen, enjoy... (Walked away befuddled)
Could it be possible that I have made all the wrong choices in life? My math is no good? I always thought that you follow your dream and put in the hard work that comes with the territory. Be realistic! it may or may not happen (whatever your goal in life is) just as long as you enjoy the the fruit of your labor even if it is sour at times. You always get what you put out; I believe I can say we all effect each other collectively in that sense, a trade and barter of the sort.
Logic? It seems as if we define what that word means to us in our current age. I believe that, so therefore it means this, regardless if I know the details behind the scenes. Circular reasoning has become my greatest pet peeve...
