10 Reasons Donald Glover Was Right About Migos’ “Bad and Boujee”

I shall not pretend to be a big fan of Migos. In fact, I’ve spent more time being confounded by their inability to disappear into the hip-hop ether than I have enjoying their trapcoctions. Also, the fact that these are some “trappers” from Gwinnett County – aka “the North, that way” aka where you move to in Atlanta when you’ve made it and need to stay away from family – always rubbed me the wrong way. I realize that being “real” in rap is a long overrated requirement, however, sometimes knowing too much can ruin a thing.

Though MC Breed was wrong when he proclaimed that there was no future in frontin, I can openly admit to enjoying several songs created by not one migo, but all three of the Migos. Moving on, because of them, in 2013, I said the word “Versace” at least 2,000 more times than I otherwise would have. The hook to “Fight Night” is WAAAAAAY more fun to recite in any venue than you’d believe. And while I’m not both “Handsome AND Wealthy”, one out of two ain’t bad. I guess the Migos ain’t so bad.

Which brings us to the Golden Globes from a few weeks back, when Donald Glover, in his infinite wisdom, made this statement while receiving one of his two awards:

“I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee,’” Glover said. “Like that’s the best song ever.”

Which was hilarious for a few reasons: 1) this statement likely helped drive “Bad and Boujee” to the number one spot on Billboard the next week, and 2) they panned to Stevie Wonder in the audience who looked confused as if to say, “I don’t see it.”

Ahem.

Thing is, I might agree with Donald Glover. Hyperbole? Yes. But listen, that song is infectious. Here are 10 reasons why Donald Glover just might be right.

1. I came to know “Bad and Boujee” the same way MOST of us did: I kept hearing mothefuckers referencing rain drops and drop tops and had NO clue what the hell they were talking about. The straw that broke the camel’s back and made me do the googles was some meme about what some fellow was leaving in 2016 and taking into 2017, and he was bringing “rain drops, drop tops”. Once I googled and saw it referenced a Migos song, my first inclination was to be like, “oh that makes sense, what’s on NPR?” but I listenededededed to the song for what was the first of maybe a solid, I don’t know, 1,000, over the past few weeks. No lie.

Point is, “rain drops, drop tops” is the gateway to that song and whether they knew it or not, it’s motherfucking brilliant because it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SONG AND MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER but holy shit. You’ve heard no shortage of people you know and respect say “rain drops, drop tops” in the past few weeks sending you to the breaking point where you have to google it and then life.changes. I may or may not have said this in a meeting at work recently. My boss may or may not have said, “I keep hearing this, what is that?” Only one of the preceding sentences is false.

2. The beat isn’t anywhere close to being one of Metro Boomin’s best beats. However, something about that slow, plodding beat is sympatico with asses clapping on stripper poles, rolling down the street smokin’ indo sippin’ on gin and juice, sweeping, mixing up cake batter, stapling, doing a chemistry experiment, etc. It’s multi-purpose. If you walked into your progressive church and heard the beat playing as the ushers sat you down, would you be surprised? Probably not.

3. Much like Waka Flocka Flame’s “Round of Applause,” “Bad and Boujee” is fully appreciable by watching an ENTIRE room full of educated professionals say, “my bitch is bad and boujee, cookin’ up dope with an uzi…”, most of whom have never seen an uzi in their entire lives and don’t even realize that the very gun STOPPED BEING MANUFACTURED ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO.

4. Let’s talk about uzis since the Migos talk about uzis, a lot. While I’d like to think that is just drug dealers talking about their hardware, I’d put all of my money on the fact that because “uzi” rhymes with “boujee” it’s the firearm of choice for our friendly neighborhood Subway-restaurant trappers from Lawrenceville, at least on this song. However, again, brilliant. It’s got me talking about uzis again and that’s almost always a good thing.

5. Offset bodies both the hook and his verse. And until this song, I absolutely could not tell Offset from Takeoff, two niggas with some of the most non-awesome rap names in a long time, which is saying something because I just mentioned Waka Flocka Flame. Like, you cannot see yourself buying an album from a nigga named Offset. Or Takeoff for that matter. Quavo has the best name and is the clear standout of Migos, except on “Bad and Boujee” where, again, Offset goes for broke and puts his foot all up in this song.

6. “Yeah, that way” has been on my soul for the past three weeks. I say this whenever I can. Seriously. I stood outside Metro one day asking pedestrians if they needed directions JUST so I could say, “YEAH, THAT WAY.”

7. I’m about to get real meta for a second. There are three members of Migos: Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff. In some odd Black family way, they’re all actual family, like cousins and uncles and nephews or some shit. It’s Black as fuck. However, on “Bad and Boujee”, only Offset and Quavo are present along with a HORRID verse from Lil’ Uzi Vert (we’ll get to him later). In my head, there was a decision that had to be made where they were determining who wouldn’t make the cut for “Bad and Boujee” and they decided to take off…TAKEOFF.

Bruh.

They taked off TAKEOFF off the song. Mind.Blown. I almost wonder if they were sitting around and had a moment of divine inspiration at the realization and Takeoff just stood up and walked out the studio. It’s almost poetic. The lesson here: don’t name yourself Takeoff unless you’re a plane.

8. Lil’ Uzi Vert is on this song. He sucks. Tremendously. According to the social medias, he is apparently the hot nigga on the song. I contest that stress. I don’t even hate the Tiny Green Gunna Boy. His song “Money Longer” is a straight banger. I think he looks odd and even in this video he some how decides to tuck his t-shirt into some extra small sweatpants, which is decidedly unhip-hop. But even though his verse is the worst on the song – he doesn’t say “that way” not even once, the lazy tiny bastard – because the song itself is so awesome, I can live with it. He’s just lucky his name isn’t some shit like TakeOff. But on some EXTRA meta shit, Migos were like, we took off Takeoff, and Offset was dancing around singing about uzis and I’ll bet Quavo said… “bruh, there’s a rapper named Uzi…let’s get him.”

Mind. More blown.

9. Quavo says the word “ratatouille” like rat-a-tooly. Let that sink in. He says to call him Quavo Rat-a-tooly. That happened. You and I both know he’s seen the movie Ratatouille because who hasn’t. Yet and still he added in the “l” in what can only be described as an eff you to the French. And it was awesome. I’m here for France, tho. Because lineage.

10. The term “bad and boujee” itself is alliterative perfection. Offset says is in the most serendipitous way possible. They should get a Grammy for best sound recording in 2017. They won’t. But they should. It works. It’s employed. The Migos told me to tell you, “you’re welcome.” And no, serendipity didn’t work up there. But neither does “rain drops, drop tops” and they have the number one song in the country. I’m a Migo(s).

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

  • I aggressively agree with all of this. Bad and Boujee is my personal anthem for at least the next two months, easily. I do hate the way they spelled bourgeoisie. It looks so dumb on paper.

  • Rain drops, drop tops…
    I had to google this ish, and then fell into the rabbit hole of listening to this song. It makes no sense, video is as equally as turrible but yet it works.
    So much, I’ve been singing it around the office & the coworkers have joined in. The gateway line

    • I’m so glad you’re enjoying it.

        • Kas loves Jamaican Breakfast

          Talenti is as good as Pappdeaux is trash.

        • Lol this list is missing so many things but yes.

        • Janelle Doe

          wait, what about melanation/ed?

          • ? explain please

            • Janelle Doe

              This list doesn’t include being melanated. But then the more I think about it that would be in a female hotep list so never mind.

        • There isn’t a Pappadeaux on the East Coast. But I’m a PWI grad from NYC, salaried, brunch when I can, do day parties, have a passport and think Crown Apple is OK. Yes, I’m officially bougie Black. MAMA I MADE IT!

          • I chuckled cause I checked off more of these than I care to admit

          • Lea Thrace

            there are two in Atlanta alone…

            • East coast! Atlanta is the South.

        • Cori Hoston

          Mannn i love a good crown apple and ginger ale

        • PhlyyPhree

          I don’t do day parties anymore soooooo….I’m safe?
          Also, I’m scared because I should know, but BGLO???

          • Black Greek Letter Organization,

            • PhlyyPhree

              Ohhhhoooo.
              Welp!!! Nevermind then.
              *takes out headphones and lets “Bad and Boujee” ring through the office*

              *but my office door still closed*

        • TheUnsungStoryteller

          I have 6. How many do you have to have in order to make the cut? lol

        • miss t-lee

          I only got 3 of these, but I been knew this anyway…lol

        • mssporadic

          I have 6. May have 7 if I can sub in Crown Vanilla.

          • Rewind4ThatBehind

            That Crown Vanilla with Vanilla ice cream tho……

            wow.

        • MsCee

          Who made this and why do they know my life

          • Exactly!!!
            I was like I knew I was…But dag lol

        • Zil Nabu

          I saw this list last year and the caption said that if you can check off 6 or more then that means you’re bougie. I checked off 5 and promptly let my BFF know that this list is proof that I am not bougie like she always says I am. She asks me what 5 I checked and I tell her BGLO, PWI grad, Salaried, Brunch, and Passport. She immediately calls out Talenti Ice Cream (which anyone who eats Talenti knows that it’s gelato, not ice cream…but I digress). I protest that I don’t buy or eat the stuff. She then reminds me of this one time we went to a Talenti shop. My response. “Oh, that doesn’t count! I only ate Talenti when we were in Paris!” And with that statement I put the nail in my own coffin.

          • Thats ok, come to the dark side lol

    • Rain drop

      Drop top

      You said it once now you can’t stop

        • Janelle Doe

          BOL
          *between reading these comments and listening to DJ Private Ryan loudly at work because Corey told me to be my Black self, my colleagues won’t know what to do with me this week.

          • So soca and trap? VERY interesting juxtaposition…

            • Janelle Doe

              ikr?

      • WenzelDashington

        How else can you feel rain drops driving unless you are in fact in a drop top? In those few words, the Migos are sharing the freedom of their lives. It’s their my name is Ishmael moment infused with Metro Boomin glorious beat. It may be raining, but Migos are out here to feel that rain drop.

        • Jennifer

          Argh! Disqus, I was talking about one of the classics of literature. Not peen!

    • pls

      there’s a meme where people text the lyrics…but a 2520 responded “keep faling on my head” after being sent “rain drops…” That’s when I had to google. changed my life! Why, yes, I AM bad and bougie, sir!

      • Cooking up dope wit a uzi…

        Like PJ said, never seen an uzi in my life.

    • Kas loves Jamaican Breakfast

      Yutes

  • I enjoy Migos for what they are…not as much as Sremmurd but enjoy them nonetheless. Much like Drake, they have mastered meme music, easily digestible quotes that works as captions and t shirts.

    • If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

    • panamajackson

      I agree with this. “Black Beatles” is a great, great song.

      • Brandon Allen

        The album is actually really good. The talented one? Swae Lee kills it. Mike Will very 80s new wave on the production.

        • panamajackson

          Swae Lee is far and wide the talented one in the group. Even on “Black Beatles” he SOUNDS like the talented on. That’s why he’s eating off of Beyonce’s “formation”.

          • I honestly think the other kid is there for the snacth and drugs.

            • RagesAgainstMachines

              He’s Dalvin… just there because his brother is.

              • miss t-lee

                Bwhahahha

              • Wow. Two Dalvin mentions in as many days.

          • I sing Black Beatles like I’m in the opera. It’s funny every time.

            • Cleojonz

              I can picture this lol.

          • TheCollinB

            Jxmmi came up with the actual “Get in formation” line tho. Swae did the “if she fuck me good I take her to Margiela” and Bey changed it to “Red Lobster”….I don’t wanna be the “well actually” guy tho.

            • Cranberry05

              Too late, “Mr. Behind The Music”…lol.

              • TheCollinB

                I sound like a sshole huh?

                • Cranberry05

                  Nah, you were straight. It wasn’t like you were lying.

                  Plus, it’s VSB. We #ReceiptReady

        • Sremmlife 2 is a very good album. If they keep this up, they have a classic in them. I listened to it recently and was impressed. Like oh…this is what Trap Music sounds like when people actually give a F and put the pills and lean down for more than 5 minutes!

      • Brother Mouzone

        I hate that I’m already becoming “get off my lawn guy” while still relatively young, but all that “music” ya’ll talkin’ bout suuuuuuucks….lol. Fight Me!

        • TheUnsungStoryteller

          Same.

        • Tasha Lawrence?

          They are singing NONSENSE. It ain’t even about age.

    • Sremmund >>> Migos … that’s all i have to say about that.

      • Cleojonz

        Sremmurd = Migos. Equally bad. There I fixed that for you.

        • Alejandro Mulatto

          Nah

    • TheUnsungStoryteller

      I just want to know how to pronounce that man’s last name…

      • Rae Sremmurd isn’t a singular person lol. It’s Drummers Ear backward.,

        • TheUnsungStoryteller

          You have got to be kidding me???!!!! For real! I had no idea.

          • Cleojonz

            Finding this out actually made me think a little bit more highly in them. I thought they were just making up words and sounds.

    • T.Q. Fuego

      I’m wit you except Sremmurd’s delivery is way more boring than theirs. (They need to hurry up and go through puberty so they can be somewhat appealing as vocalists) Plus Migos been doin it longer. Both groups are consistent with the hits tho. They BODY the lane they’re in. And I love the irony that they singlehandedly made it cool to be boughie in 2017, but boughie (black) folks make it a point to hate them lol. I love it

  • Also I enjoy actual bougie people losing their mind about the spelling of boujee…..drink it in inwards, drink it iiiiiiiin

    • pls

      I just said that!

    • No.

    • panamajackson

      That is one of the more interesting complaints. Folks been runnin’ around talking stuff is trill for years, like we don’t make up stuff all the time.

      OR the fact that J. Cole is in love with using a “z” instead of an “s” on songs, like “Love Yourz”. But nobody complained about that.

      • No Jermaine Cole slander

        • Janelle Doe

          welcome back Ruby. :-)

      • Brandon Allen

        People complain about Jermaine being a cornball that uses “z”‘s like it’s 1992.

        • No Jermaine Cole slander.

        • He’s too old to be naming tracks like barbershops tho

  • pls

    So now I look like an idiot bc I refuse to change the way I spell “bougie.”

    I love quavo’s cadence! He sounds like a sessy gucci mane.

    Migos got songs, though. they got a few mixtapes and I was like dang I know every one of these songs.

    • panamajackson

      When they’re on stage, show them boobies.

      • pls

        I’m newly single and a desperate savage…I just might!

                Normal wheeerrreeeee?
                Normal like we’re normalizing Dump and his shenanigans these days? Because….

                • Don’t confuse me with Trump. All of my shenanigans are with consent. Trump’s shenanigans are…not so consensual.

                  • PhlyyPhree

                    This is a true, and very important, distinction.
                    I was just referring to the fact that things that used to be extraordinary are now vanilla.

                    • The internet is turning a lot of people out. Fetishes that required subscribing to the right magazine and a post office box 20 years ago can be dialed up on an app these days.

                    • PhlyyPhree

                      Making it soooooo easy to be out there and proud of it. God bless Al Gore’s interwebs

    This made me laugh so hard. I dont know why though lol

    • panamajackson

      I though it was clever myself.

      • Janelle Doe

        Did you laugh even once as you wrote this? Smirk even?
        *genuinely curious

        • panamajackson

          Laugh? Not really. I probably smirked a time or two.

          • Janelle Doe

              You.Are.Welcome.

            • Jennifer

              I’m amazed you avoided it after all this time. Well done!

  • Is Uzi worse, better, or the same as Yachty?

    • His voice is less irritating

      • PhlyyPhree

        Is it?
        Because they all look and sound the same to me.
        I remember when they had the most recent “hip hop” awards and (I think) Uzi, yachty, vert, 21 savage, 22 barbarian and young thug performed. I literally thought it was the same person doing the world’s fastest costume changes

        • Oh they all have awful stage presence

    • panamajackson

      Yachty is extra terrible. Uzi is like the step right above extra terrible because at least his beats are better.

      • These dudes took Eli Porters lane and ran with it. Parents just have to tell their kids “NO!” sometimes.

      • Michele Gilliam

        Lil Uzi got at least one song. Lil Yatchy is just taking up air.

    • Maybe they’ll both get stabbed in the trachea this year.

      • Ma’am, history seldom plays out the way you want.

        • It’s good to have dreams.

          • Only if you can remember your dreams.

            • Also, if you put it in the atmosphere you can speak it into existence. Look where it got David Trollup. He’s going to start running the country this weekend.

              • Takeaways from this exchange:
                1. I, Wu Young saying things aloud repeatedly with the aid of racists and Russian fascists can get sh*t done.

                • That’s the spirit buddy!

          I mean he’s garbage but the song is catchy. Good beat. *shrugs*

          • panamajackson

            It is catchy. But good and catchy are two different things.

            • Brandon Allen

              If you’re caught, you’re caught.

          • It’s catchy ironically. Me and Moneypenny sing it aloud to be funny and nothing else. Then again I do the same thing to Drake songs.

    • miss t-lee

      This sentence made me feel ancient as f*ck, Wu.

      • This sh*t isn’t for me.

  • Brandon Allen

    1. Takeoff is actually a really good rap name and his voice makes a lot of their songs pop.
    Quavo is Quavo’s government name… Quavious…
    2. “Rain drops, Drop tops” makes sense. It rains? You put up your drop top. Especially if you’re boujee.

    • panamajackson

      Regarding number 2, I think thats a reach. lol.

      • miss t-lee

        Stretch Armstrong.

        • Now you have me thinking of Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito the Barber. Damn you!

          • miss t-lee

            Welp.

          • Jennifer

            You watched their doc on Netflix?

            • No I didn’t. Then again, I heard it live. Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito in their prime were the most popular radio show in New York. Not Hip-hop show. Radio show PERIOD. Hot 97 cribbed a lot of their playlist from them when they dominated the radio charts. Also, remember the show was on from 1 am to 4 am early Sunday morning. People were staying up, dubbing the show and passing the tapes around.

              • Jennifer

                They talked about that in the movie — really interesting. I was vaguely familiar with Bobbito, but that was after their radio show ended. It was a good doc.

                • Every time and place has something you had to be there for. Also, there was a scene of those radio shows like that. Pete Rock had a radio show that was hot, even if not as influential. Hank Love and Half Pint had another show. College radio at Adelphi was huge, because it’s what Public Enemy evolved out of. Stuff like that.

    • TheUnsungStoryteller

      I follow. It’s poetry. Trap poetry.

      It all makes sense now.

  • JulianWithTheRedCorvette

    I can’t really listen to this song. The hook makes me think of a girl I knew from school; she was a legacy AKA with a closet full of genuine Coach bags who also happened to trap out the dorms and “managed” strippers.

    RIP Pinkie. You were too real.

    • I’m glad Coach died a swift death. All those bags were ugly and those “C’s” were so tacky.

      • JulianWithTheRedCorvette

        They were the joint- apparently- back around ’08-’09. At least in the little corner of NC where I was. It was a good way to spot the “sophisticated” girls on campus.

        • What part of NC?

          • JulianWithTheRedCorvette

            Durham. The real Durham – Hayti, Fayetteville street, Braggtown and all points adjacent.

            • I’m so sorry. I have family in Durham, Knightdale, Kinston and Lenoir.

              • PhlyyPhree

                You have family in Kinston? My dad’s whole side is there.

                • Yes. I don’t know many of them but they’re out there.

              • JulianWithTheRedCorvette

      • miss t-lee

        Only for Michael Kors to take its place.

        • It’s so bad here in the south too ? Women really think they’re flexing on my in line at Walmart. Sweetheart, you can keep your lil MK bag beloved. I envy you not.

          • miss t-lee

            I love a great bag. However, I’ve never been a fan of giant logos on bags, or clothing. I have bags that probably cost more, but they’re well made Italian leather and will last forever. Although I didn’t pay exorbitant prices, because I’m cheap, but that’s another story for another time.
            Them overpriced pleather MK bags, not so much.

          • orchid921

            Michael Kors costs too much. I keeps it real. Charming Charlie’s ALL DAY.

            • I love a good Charmig Charlie bag! My mom found a lady in the city who sells great bags as well. I thrift all day errday

            • miss t-lee

              So many cute accessories at CC’s.

      • Tasha Lawrence?

        They done re-branded.

        • No one cares about Coach in 2017. There isn’t enough rebranding to bring gen back from bag h e l l

          • Tasha Lawrence?

            You don’t care others do

            • Whooooooo????????? I don’t even see white women with Coach anymore.

              • PhlyyPhree

                I mean, I was stalking Chrissy Teigen’s IG this weekend and she looked like she was having so. much. fun. with her new coach swag. I was almost sold.

                • She’s a terrible person and I won’t ever forgive her for referring to Quvenzhané Wallis as a “brat”.

                  • PhlyyPhree

                    She did that?
                    Da mn. I mean, I wasn’t invested, but I saw the pic of her and John in KFC onesies and I was slightly #goals.
                    Meh well.

                    • Yes she did. She wanted to know why she should be “forced to like a child” during the time Beats of a Southern Wild dropped. She’s a s h i t t y person for throwing internet jabs at a child.

                    • Cleojonz

                      ME TOO! It made me really want an adult onesie. That little baby is so adorbs too. I wish I didn’t know that about Q now though. Makes me rethink her now.

                  • Leggy

                    Mehhh… I like her. I call children Ar seholes all the time because most of them are. *shrug*

                    • Cleojonz

                      This is true. I call my own kids as&holes lol.

                    • Nothing about Quvenzhané is terrible. Chrissy was being obnoxious about the fact that a little black girl was receiving so much attention for having talent that Chrissy wishes she possesses.

                    • Leggy

                      Lmao. This is such a reach. Most kids are ar seholes. Even famous black ones. Was Chrissy Ill advised to say that? Sure. But thinking she said it cos she’s jealous of Q is frankly ridiculous.

                    • LMNOP

                      To publicly call a young kid a brat like that is pretty messed up though. Someone has to be the grown up.

                    • Leggy

                      And I absolutely agree. It was ill advised for her to say it but to claim she said it cos she’s Jealous of Q is way ridiculous.

                    • I’ll agree to disagree with you then.

                    • Cranberry05

                      So, are you indirectly admitting that you, too, were once an as*hole, Leggy?

                  • Another Man’s Rhubarb

                    Thank you! I think she’s awful, too. I genuinely don’t get why people think she’s so great. Ugh

                  • Cranberry05

                    There’s something about her that reads, “pretentious”. I can’t put my finger on it, though.

              • FarbissinaPunim

                Coach has done a great re-branding. They have great all leather bags and wallets with big no logos. I think the line is called Coach 1941. It appeals to the same crowd as Tory Burch, I think.

                • miss t-lee

                  They took it back to their original all leather.

            • Cranberry05

              It depends where you live. If you live in a major fashion city (e.g. NYC, L.A.), MK and Coach would be synonymous with getting bags at Target.

    • B. Tracks

      There are quite a few educated hoodlums running around…allegedly.

    • miss t-lee

      Pinkie sounds like a real one fa sho.

      • That sounds like how the Ronnie chick from Playas Club started in the game.*

        Ronnie kind of scared me.

        • miss t-lee

          She kinda scared me too.
          And, I don’t scare easily…lol

          • Like she would r@pe a ninja then take him to Red Lobster. Nah.

            • miss t-lee

              Yup.
              And make you drive.

              • Then call the next day and ask you some “What’s wrong, boo?” type sh8t.

                • miss t-lee

                  Totally.

          • orchid921

            That whole family was messed UP. Wasn’t Junior the Rapist her cousin or something? Something in the milk ain’t clean … just saying …

            • miss t-lee

              I think so…been a while since I watched it.

        • Brother Mouzone

          If I saw her in Detroit and someone told me she was a female assassin workin’ for a major player, I would think, yeah, I can see that.

    • Wait…a legacy AKA with bread who moved weight and pimped strippers?

      This requires a blog. I’m sorry. This is a story that needs to be told.

      • IAmMikeBrown

        This might fall under the category of “sold”.

      • panamajackson

        Shoot, I, unfortunately, know, well, knew a girl from Spelman who came from a prominent family who ended up dying behind some BMF sh*t. Like ran up in her home in the middle of the night and killed her and her man. It gets real out there.

        • Epsilonicus

          Shucks I had a friend killed by female assassins because he got out the drug game.

          • PhlyyPhree

              • PhlyyPhree

                Oh. Yeaaaaa.
                My joke is pretty tasteless then. Sorry bout your friend. And for being a jerk.

              Dude left the game basically. Paid everyone out. So a few years afterwards, someone wanted the connect. He said he done, washed his hands of the game, everything. So he was at a party and met these two women. He thinks he books ’em and they go to leave the party. On the way home, they stab him up and burn his body.

              • Brother Mouzone

                You have to leave the state to truly leave the game, and most are too connected to home, family, friends, associates, etc.. to do that.

              • Cranberry05
