    Wassup Nahgros?

    Ike, Lil Ci-Ci,C88S88, Boosie, SC,CO,Joe88, BH, atcq and the rest.

    I’m a first gen Hip-Hop head, and I “profit” off of Hip-Hop because I get paid to D.J. at some events where Hip-Hop is mainly played. I cut and scratch, which is an element of Hip-Hop d,jing and I’ll do it WELL into middle age. My children already know to bury me with my head phones wrapped around my head and my promo copy of “Grand Master Flash On the Wheels Of Steel”.

    You can’t hit the clubs like you used to when your 30…..

    You’re supposed to be settled down, family oriented….

    30 is not the new 20…..don’t get it misconstrued….

    It baffles me everytime I see a 40 year old in the club…

    like “Eww….what are you doing here?”
    _____________________________________________________

    It depends on what type of club….30 year old people still like to go out too, maybe the market isnt there yet for 30 year olds and up clubs….but if you’re 40 hanging out in an 18 and up….you need some counseling

    ^Agreed.

    ***Nigga, you’re gonna be 30 in a couple of years- so, it’s gonna be all family board game night, the Cosby Show and warm cocoa with the kids once you hit a certain chronological age? GTFOH…I got married young anyway, at 23- most niggas would say that was too young, but my marriage has outlasted all of theirs- what’s wrong with niggas having their own timetable and tastes-as far as what they do, family status, and who or what they listen to? Everybody’s always so damned prescriptive and judgemental about what the next man is supposed to do, when niggas don’t have their own lives and priorities in order….

    Niggas cut the picture off the front of the Bowflex box with the diesel dude and tape it to their mirror as inspiration.
