Four black teens in Philadelphia with nothing other than weekly tranpasses and opinions. Still, the criticism and general interpretation seem to change from day to day regardless of aforementioned teens consistency.
Whatever. We're not doing anyone some terrible injustice, and we don't claim to be changing the world or enlightening the folk beyond belief or recognition. Credences, food for thought, images, a few laughs here and there, and opinions are all that we can offer you. Whether you choose to accept or decline, you are here, as are we, daily.
To face the rain or sunshine, parade or riot, cookout or Saturday detention..We ride Septa.

I'll warn you all before you read this..I might get a tad bit mushy and over dramatic. Shit, you might not want to read this if we're not close..You might get jealous haha. *COUGHS* I may or may not be under the influence of something but that is far beyond the point.
I love my niggas. Past & Present.
A best friend is the best thing that you can have next to money, an abundance of "Sunday Bests" & an entertained sex drive. I have to ask though (cliche as the question might be)..When the guala, wardrobe, and sexual appetite are gone..What (rather, WHO) are you going to have?
My ace boon coons and I can reign over Mt. Airy, the mall, the cheesecake factory, the r7, suburban station, the train tracks on the hill, on my roof or wherethefuckever and just appreciate each other's company. The times that I enjoy the most are when we just stand around, sit around or lay around; Saying everything but absolutely nothing at the same time.
In spite of it all (the fights, the lies, the rainy days, and the third parties) I know that there are certain folks that I will always have love for. Love like, "We haven't had a real conversation in months but if you ever need a shoulder to cry on, a dorm room to sneak into, or my last dollar..I have you, undoubtedly." That is LOVE.
My definition of "best friend" is different for every single person (I'm sure that it's a relative term anyway). It'd just be unrealistic to expect identical behaviors & actions from different people. The beauty of having multiple best friends is that I share something original and untainted with each of them.
Telling someone that they can have "MAYBE one or two" best friends is like telling a hopeless romantic that they can only fall in love once. No no no! Do you want a series of suicides on your hands, partner?!?!?! Fuck that.
Friendship is something that you can't put a limit on and because it involves love, you can't just throw it away either. Certain situations might alter a relationship with a friend, but even a series of bad circumstances won't stain one of my friendships
Yadadamean? A bond is something that you don't just kick to the curb. Imagine waking up to a world without someone that you haven't spoken to in months (over something petty). That type of situation would eat at my soul until I was no more. How about you? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..and fuck it, some of our kodak moments for emphasis.
...Nine broken paragraphs & Ten individuals later, I think I'm done being with being sensitive.
All the same, "My friends, I wish the best for you forever on."
You're browsing facebook, you come across a party album. *CLICK*. "WOOOOW! RED CUPS, PEOPLE!!!". Looks like an awesome time right? Little do you know that he hates her, he is fucking her, and the her in the corner will be kicked out of school by next semester for god knows what.
BUT, the red cups tell you otherwise. Look at me, I'm having a great time.
..Until five minutes later when I was praying to the porcelain goddess. My drunken tweets might know more about that night than I do.
"WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE, REMEMBER THE FEARLESS, REMEMBER THE DREAMERS, REMEMBER THOSE WHO REPRESENT THE GHETTO...THE FAIRY TALE OF NOTHING TO SOMETHING. I'M BRIEFLY SADDENED BY NEGATIVE COMMENTS, BUT I HAVE TO REMEMBER THOSE PEOPLE ARE SCARED, INCAPABLE OR JUST PLAIN IDIOTS. WE ARE THE FUCKING ROCK STARS BABY. NO COCAINE, JUST LIFE MY NIGGAS!! NO COCAINE, JUST LIFE! IT'S FUNNY TO ME WHEN FASHION BLOGGERS DOWN OUR OUFITS AND THEN SUPER JOCK OUTLANDISH SHIT ON THE RUNWAY BUT THEN THEY DRESS MAD PRUDE AND DON'T LIVE FASHION. WE LIVE IT MAN. FUCK THAT, WE LIVE IT!!! WE LIVE IT SO HARD PEOPLE LIVE THROUGH US! WE REPRESENT YOUR INNER SPIRIT!! THE CHILD IN US ALL, THE BRUTAL HONESTY, THE NAIVETY, THE BRAVE WARRIOR, THE ADRENALINE THAT ALLOWS A MOTHER TO LIFT A CAR IF HER CHILD WAS TRAPPED UNDER IT! REMEMBER, THERE WAS A TIME WHEN EVERYBODY DISSED MICHAEL JACKSON EVERY CHANCE THEY COULD. IMAGINE THE PRESSURE OF BEING A TRUE ICON. VERY FEW HUMAN BEINGS ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE CONSTANT HATE!!! IF WE DON'T DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS THE SHIT, YOU BEAT US UP VERBALLY AND MENTALLY, LIKE A CATHOLIC SCHOOL TEACHER BEATING A CREATIVE STUDENT INTO SUBMISSION. I CAN HEAR YOU SCREAMING 'COLOR INSIDE THE LINES!!!' WELL FUCK YOUR COLORING BOOK, COLOR BY NUMBERS APPROACH TO LIFE. AT THE END OF THE DAY WHO ARE WE HURTING??? OH "THE NEW BLACK???" SINCE BARACK IS PRESIDENT BLACKS DON'T LIKE FUR COATS, RED LEATHER, AND FRIED CHICKEN ANY MORE?! WHEN YOU TRULY UNDERSTAND CULTURAL SETTINGS, BOUNDARIES, AND OUR MODERN DAY CASTE SYSTEMS, THEN YOU CAN FEEL THE GLORY AND PAIN FROM THE DAYS OF KINGS IN AFRICA TO THE NEW KINGS OF THE MEDIA. LET THE BALL PLAYERS DANCE AFTER THEY SCORE! IT'S LIFE MY NIGGAS, IT'S LIFE! REMEMBER CLOTHING IS A CHOICE. WE WERE BORN NAKED!!! FRESH IS AN OPINION, LOVE IS OBJECTIVE, TASTE IS SELECTIVE, AND EXPRESSION IS MY FAVORITE ELECTIVE. NO MORE POLITICS OR APOLOGIES!!!"
Personally, I'd like Kanye to focus on making another quality album.
and hey..Kanye, where were you during the grammy's?
"And the Devil in a hot pink dress tryin' to ask me for one dance "
"Shut your mouth before I fuck it."
"PHILLY, WHAT THE FUCK IS UP? WHAT THE FUCK MAN???"
"Dear god, me too. I like the hot bitches."
"Now I give a shit bout less more than a little bit"
"Now super duper fame gets me super duper brain"
"How you doin' Officer? Nice moustache"
"I still wife her up even with her flat chest"
"Girls that I dated, I am not mad yo. Unless you stabbed me in the heart, no love ho."
"This game is more than spending money and fucking dimes."
"And you smell good just like some new shoes ..Just like my bathing apes"
"So I just pull that bag of colorful frosty leaves on out & free my scalp "
"Once upon a time nobody gave a fuck. It's all said and done and my cock's been sucked. So now I'm in the cut, alcohol in the wound. My hearts an open sore that I hope heals soon. I live in a cocoon opposite of Cancun. Where it is never sunny, the dark side of the moon."
"Tall. Clutchin my kid cudi bizz-allz."
"I was too artsy, known to be a clown "
"I know it's easy to imagine, but it's easier to just do, see, if you can't do what you imagine, then what is imagination to you?"
"the type that make you tell a bitch just dance"
"I don't care, hand on the wheel, drivin drunk, I'm doin’ my thing"
