    The life of a Gangster......

    If you still live with yo momma it goes like this

    Wake up at 11am, no need to get up earlier, no job, no prospects, no worries.
    First thought is food, shuffle out of bed wearing week old boxers and socks.
    Go to the kitchen to compete with the roaches over who is gonna eat the corn flakes with water.
    Go back to your room to play playstation and porn till 4pm, munch chips and hot sausages between games.
    Real hunger strikes, momma aint home so you have to get dressed and go out.
    First you pick out which pair of the 24 different styles of brand new Pumas or Timberlands your gonna wear so you can coordinate your wardrobe.
    From the pile of cloths on the floor pick out a mostly clean white wife beater t-shirt and a pair of blue jeans.
    Stare at the collection of t-shirts with dead friends pictures on them.
    Now put on a pair of shorts over your boxers, a pair of black sweats over the shorts, then put on the pants.
    Accesorize your outfit with a shoe string belt (that doesnt work), a hat to match your shoes (worn sideways) and some sort of fake chrome necklass bought from the local flea market.
    Collect $4.26 in change from around the house and head to the local bbq take away (2 blocks away on the corner, from the back of a truck).
    Grab the 6 baggies of mj and 4 rocks left over from yesterdays sales and walk out the door.
    On the way talk to various homies, hoes, and baby mommas you have met thru the years.
    An hour later arrive at your destination and get 2 pieces of chicken, cornbread, and mac and cheese in a clamshell box.
    Eat on the way home, use pants as napkins and lick unwashed fingers repeatedly on the way to your hoes house.
    Get to hoes house just in time to miss the other guy (she says its her cousin) leaving the house.
    Argue over who is or who is not talking to someone else and whatever else isnt important that day ......blah.blah.blah.
    End by calling her a hoe and stepping over her three other kids to leave.
    Go to corner and sell your stash to a few regulars.
    Stare at cops as they drive by.
    Flinch when you hear tires squeal and engines rev anywhere near you.
    Spend the next 4 hours alternately sitting on a milkcrate, leaning against a wall, and standing while holding your pants up, friends do the same.
    Talk about ho's, whips, bling, choppers (AK's), duece 2's, and the finer points of owning a Denali over an Escalade.
    Start to walk slowly away when a K9 cop spends a little to much time on your block.
    Head to your other hoes house and have sex on her 15 year old twin mattress with her kids in the next room.
    Leave to go play basketball with your boys.
    Play basketball till 12am.
    Leave when passing cars drive a little to slowly and other boys stare a little harder as they walk past.
    Get home by 1:20am, argue with your mom over why you didnt wash the dishes, mom nearly calls police but doesnt want to wake up your brothers 4, 6,14.
    Go to your dirty matress on the floor, shake out the sheet to get the dirt off it, promise yourself your gonna go to the laundry (for the first time this month) and wash that sheet.
    Sit on the edge of the bed and play playstation till 330am.
    Go to sleep with the tv on.






    Im not done yet. I decided to compile a list of "a day in the life of a Gangster" based on personal observations and statements from scenes, after my stepson started to admire a lifestyle he knows nothing about. I would appreciate any other issues I can add add to the list and intend to do another list based on the guys that arent living with momma, I will also start to include info about drug sales. When Im done Im giving my stepson the list to read so he can get a better idea of just what the real gangster life is like.

    So you wanna be a Gangster.

    My friend, THAT was eloquent!! No doubt, it would deeply offend Jesse, Al, Oprah, et al. But who cares? They want the status quo. Seems like they have a vested interest in it continuing. Yah, you'll never see these facts on MSNBC, CNN, or any of the other other alphabet soup media outlets.

      Add some dialogue where he raps with his homies that "the man is keeping him down." Maybe add some hope in there about making it big a gangsta rapper.

        That's my dream life! I thought you were trying to make this sound bad.

        Go back to your room to play playstation and porn till 4pm, munch chips and hot sausages between games.
        Also eerily close to my dream life. This is sounding pretty good right now!

        Heck, all this time I've been working a legitimate job to support myself. I should have known, the gangster life is the life for me!

          So your saying being agangster automatically translate to a black man. Why do all the black reps have to be upset at your saying, wouldnt it offend white people too. Or do other races not become gangster's. This post is made to disrespect poor people of color and thats all. Has little if anything to do about being a gangster.

            No mention of drugs (street pharmacist/recreational user), guns (NRA Member), or fights? This is a Gangsta? Looks more like a deadbeat to me. A wannabe, a "wankster". No doubt a product of the criminal justice system's rehabilitation program.

                The Gangster lifestyle that my stepson is so quick to emulate is in fact primarily one of popular black culture. No, its not meant to disrespect anybody, its meant to educate those that think the "Gangster" life is somehow, romantic.

                I was careful to not mention race, as this can apply as much to a trailer park as it can to a ghetto. My experience is with Ghettos, so I talk about what I know.

                I will expound more hopefully in the morning.

                  Don't forget to mention that most "people" in that lifestyle have to be aware of "the man". You'll have to keep a low profile around the PO-PO.

                      Okay, for those that dont live with momma.


                      Wake up at 11am.
                      First thought is food.
                      Look around the room for the clamshell box from last night and hope that no roaches got into it.
                      Get off the dirty mattress you found on the side of the road a month ago and go start to munch.
                      Stare at the used condoms on the floor and hope that your Lt doesnt mind that you had a crack head pay you in trade.
                      A car drives past and you wonder if its the cops.
                      Spend 4 minutes working on the wires in the back of the tv that got ripped out the last time the cops raided the house.
                      Try to enjoy Jerry springer in only two colors and mono sound.
                      Gangsters dont do laundry so you remind yourself to go buy some new cloths from the flea market today.
                      Put on your newest wife beater, sweatpants, red shorts and 3 month old (bought new) blue jeans (that literally stand up by themselves), remind yourself to buy some socks too as the soles of the ones you are wearing are literally....black.
                      Put on your only pair of boots (all your other nike's got stolen when your momma kicked you out), and hope you dont get shot today.
                      Go hit the corner and start selling. Its 93 degrees, your wearing 4 layers of pants, and your corner (the one your allowed to sell on) is currently in the full sun.
                      Flinch everytime you hear a siren.
                      Wonder if the little old guy across the street has called the cops.
                      Think about shooting up his house.
                      Think long and hard about how your going to put a candy apple green paint job on your 99 impala that you havent got insurance, a tag, or a licence to drive.
                      Sell crack, mj, or powder to random crack heads, friends, aquaintances, and passers by.
                      Sell to the same crack head you screwed last night and realize you should not have done it if you had seen her in the daytime. Also wish that first condom hadnt broken.
                      Walk to the corner grocery and buy some Ritz lemon cola and two cheeseburgers from the side counter.
                      Go back out and sell on the corner.
                      Your lookout/decoy runner/home boy finally gets his *** out of bed and joins you.
                      Hes just in time to help you stare at the cops that really dont care about what you are doing because there are 12 calls holding, their Sgt is on their butts over missing paperwork that the records unit lost them (again), and the community doesnt seem to care so why should they. Not to mention the commander ordered them to respond four houses down and write PARKING TICKETS in a ghetto.
                      Spend the rest of the day arguing over which one of the 14 yo girls own the block is finer and how hard it is to get into her pants when her mommas always home.
                      Sell till around 430pm which is about the time the Lt shows up to pick up his cut.
                      Do the math again and make sure you have enough cash since he will kill you if you screw up again.
                      He picks up, BS's with you for a while from inside his car (a rented Charger with dark tints),counts his money, gives you some extra cash and some fun dope for doing good and moves on to the next one.
                      You secretly think you can do this better than he does, and you are hoping he either gets locked up, or better yet that he gets chopped (shot by ak47) by that idiot whos sister the Lt is messing with.
                      Go to your girlfriends house in your barely running Impala, avoiding main roads to not get spotted by the cops.
                      Get to your girls house just in time to miss her Cousin (?) leave.
                      Spend some time with her watching some bootleg dvd's and wonder why she has so much hair on her chest (honest to god I have seen women with ALOT of hair on their chest, its gotta be something in the food).
                      Go have sex on her dirty mattress with her kid in a crib next to the bed.
                      Leave when her momma gets home from working a double shift at wendys.
                      Driving to the strip club and get in a fight before even getting all the way into the parking lot.
                      Call your boys by to take care of business ("Rock" has a gun and hes crazy enough to wanna play).
                      Nevermind the cops show up because of the fight and you gotta move.
                      Head to the house you are squatting in and hope no one else is squatting their now.
                      Trade some of the coke (you know your weak for that stuff) for $5 and a bag of chicken from your friend at the KFC.
                      Use the $5 to buy some beers and fruit juice.
                      Get home, eat by the light of that busted TV.
                      Go outside with a 5 gallon bucket, fill it with water, now go back inside. Now you can fill the toilet tank with water for the first time in three days (it was starting to stink) and flush. Hope it doesnt overflow. Good. Now use the tiolet.
                      Go to sleep on that nasty mattress.


                      What a life.

                        Just a thought, but you kinda went off on a cop tangent there.

                        A gangster just sees the cops and wonders if they are there for him. He doesn't think about the pending 911 calls, or the Sgt on the radio, or the parking ticket order.

                          Gangsta

                          Sorry you were offended Cuv, and I mean that. Is there White trash? You better believe it. The thrust of the original post though, depicts a truth. When someone of the stature of Bill Cosby speaks out against the Gangsta culture, the previously mentioned personalities want to hound him out of town. Self respect is simply that, and it can be experienced by anyone willing to do the work required to achieve it. It's not achieved by the violence prone, sexually explicit, world owes me a living attitude expressed by the Gangsta culture.

                            Of course not , but it does explain to the reader, why it is that the cops do nothing about the guys selling dope on the corner.
