As I grow older I realize there are some things that just don’t hold my interest like they use to, I don’t f*ck with, or I’m just plain too old for. So to borrow a line from one of my favorite movie franchises (Lethal Weapon) I present to you my Roger Murtaugh aka I’m too old for this shit list.
I have to admit that I have killed plenty of the crooked, letter St. Ides and the OG Bobby Johnson of Malt liquor Olde English 800 in my day. Since I’m not in the hood wearing a flannel shirt, 99cent locs(sunglasses) with plats in my hair I put the 8ball down a long time ago.
I don’t mean fashion as a whole, but what passes for fashion today. You can’t tell who is who anymore the days especially if you are looking at the youth of today from the back. You have men wearing pants that show off their hips and women dressing like cleo from Set it Off.
Again not music as a whole but today’s music. I never thought that I would be repeating the words of my parents, ” what is this noise on the radio” but that’s the position today’s RnB and Rap (not Hip Hop) has me in. While I don’t knock it, but between racks on racks and throwing ones in the air I am confused, am I shopping at Nordstrom or putting a stripper through college.
Today’s slang has me lost in translation. between popping a Molly and smoking on that Keisha I don’t know If white women should fear for there lives or be happy they are the new drug of choice.
I got 5 on it.
I’m sorry homie but I am too old to be pitching in on a community sack.
Now this is not to say that I am a fan of men wearing skinny jeans but this isn’t 1992 and I’m not trying to make you jump like Kriss Kross.
Today’s sports stars
Do you know during the 80’s and 90’s Magic Johnson would have never text Larry Bird, call him, be his friend let alone team up with him? During that time IMO players were more competitive and didn’t care about being liked unlike powder puff Dwight Howard or LeBron James joining Dewayne Wade on the Miami Heat.
Today’s Hoefessionals aka video vixens don’t have nothing on the OG arm candy of Darlene Ortiz, who not only was naturally beautiful but her pictures didn’t need touching up and she could hold her own, plus I’d drink her bath water through a straw slowly.
Well that’s all I can think of for my Murtaugh list, I’m sure I’ll think of some later. What is on your Murtaugh list? Please feel free to add.
Talk to me, I’ll talk back.
