i know you got one.
everyone seems to have one.
some people do the usual 9 to 5 with a 6 to 1 on the side.
not everyone wants to slave at two jobs though.
i know people selling avon.
got some people on my left doing mca.
on my right, i know a few selling sex toys.
people are trying to become rich.
sadly, many are trying to become hood rich.
that easy money.
that type of bread that brings the bottles and the bitches.
that type of green that brings vip lists and front row seats.
let instagram tell it,
everyone who lives in the hood has louie, gucci, and prada.
vixens have on loubs and giuseppes.
wolves are throwing bills while sipping on ace of spade bottles.
this is the new “american dream“.
we are attracted to those living that lifestyle,
but i started to wonder…
Is easy money always easy?

it seems the latest get rich quick in the hood is credit scamming.
it has gotten real bad in ny.
you can’t even swipe your card anywhere without someone getting all your shit.
make a few runs and then return the products for cash.
flip that and then do it again.
do a few scams and you will make some serious dough.
trust i know how it goes down.
but, is doing this all to floss on instagram?
i see some people doing all this illegal shit and being extra obvious.
but this is the hood rich way of life.
once you have money and can live like a rapper,
you get addicted to the lifestyle.
the thrill of going into bergdorf goodman and buying whatever you want.
you can fuck whoever you want because you sex comes with success.
but, the hood rich way is so tacky.
people wearing clothes they don’t know how to spell.
hoping out of expensive cars while living in the projects.
i personally hate to see ratchet ass hood boogers in labels.
i started to wonder if no one wants to work hard anymore?
they told us growing up we have to work hard to live the good life.
is that null and void?
do you get accepted in a certain society if you prove how good of a hustler you are?
is it the new thing to floss your shit all over social networks?
what happened to being discreet?
what happened to making your illegal money on the low and trying to get out the hood?
and, do these people even get caught?
but the lifestyle is addictive.
the attention is orgasmic.
sometimes we say we won’t get involved,
but who wants to be broke?
who wants to be hungry?
you do the quick run and you will be good.
your square will stretch to a circle.
your dark place now turns green.
i had to ask…
