I always see people moving in large numbers.
They can’t seem to go out without a crew of lackeys surrounding them.
I’m a solo act myself.
I learned a while ago the joys of being a lone Fox on the prowl.
This entry is for my Foxes and Wolves who move dolo style.
It isn’t as bad as you think.
I know you feel alone.
You would like a crew of niggas to roll with to the club, movies, or mall.
You see others surrounded by groups of people and you wish you could fit in.
What would it be like to have your phone blowing up with shit to do and places to go.
Well let me paint a picture of what it is like to be in a crew.
Crews, cliques, and all that bs (or what I like to call The Others) are just high-school or a popularity contest.
Truth be told, it is just a gathering of insecure generic people looking to follow someone… anyone.
When the luster wears off, that is when the jealousy will start to shine.
Especially on which crew member is getting the most of it?
You ever notice that everyone in the crew of Others knows each others business?
Not a good look especially if you have a dusty past.
All it takes for one ignorant muthafucka in the crew to blow the dust off all your shit.
Then people will join cliques WITHIN the clique and the soap opera begins.
One of the advantages of moving alone is the fact you are moving in silence.
Grown ups, more times than not, are able to go places alone and network.
It feels better to walk in the room as a lone force anyway.
You see the top celebs running with a bunch of Others?
Beyonce? Alicia Keys? Queen Latifah? Rihanna? Jay? Kanye? 50? Oprah? Kim K? Megan Fox? All the white celebs?
They have associates but they keep it real low key with the people hanging off their fame.
I hate to share the spotlight myself.
When you have tag alongs, everything moves on THEIR time.
They want to leave and YOU have to bounce right with them.
Plus if you are trying to nab a baller,
the less you roll with a crowd is the better.
I’m not saying you can’t have friends.
We ALL need friends.
But, you don’t need to be attached at the hip with them to function in a public setting.
Nothing wrong with going to a movie alone OR even dinner by yourself.
A Wolf may feel more comfortable checkin’ for you than if you with a bunch of “others”.
So try to figure out how you can be the shit being alone.
Maybe you need to read books in making your personality shine.
I know it may look like the others are having fun and everything is perfect…
… but you NEVER know what is going on behind the scenes to make every show look successful.
