How many of us have them?




















Crew love is like the strongest love a man can have. As life goes on you realize that it's not many people you know, but how many people you can call your friends. A friend is someone who can know what your saying without you even saying a single word, Someone who will tell you the truth even though you may not want to hear it, Have your best interest at heart, Be there through the good and bad times. Friends are very rare so when you do find some it's best you keep them close and let them know you appreciate the love.


Today I was deleting files off my computer when I came across some throwback pictures of Webb,Henz and myself. I cracked up because its funny how far we have came and how far we have to go. I was talking to webb yesterday and he was telling me today was "Homie Day". Since most of us are in relationships we have few to little time to chill and kick it. So homie day is going to be an ongoing thing, Homie day is when all of us get together go out and just chill like we used too. Webb said " We need to start kicking it at a bar or lounge before we grow far apart", I read that with a bit a confusion. It never dawned on me at 19 that we would grow apart, I always seen it as us chilling on the block, going to parties, getting fresh for the rest of our lives. The story never pans out like that we all had to grow up and do our own thing, however the effort I put in with Monkey bear, have to apply the same for the friendships to keep prospering.

Webb: Webb is sort of like your mean teacher, very stern and demanding, but at the end of the day he has your best interest at heart. Webb is the dude I call on when I need the truth and good advice, He wont sugar coat jack shit. I honestly can say I love that dude. Sometimes I'm a little envious of him, his work ethic and demeanor is way beyond his 23 years and that's why he's been able to achieve what he has at a early age. Webb is a good friend to everyone he encounters. Like I had explained in an earlier blog he used to get real tight at me because we didn't kick it at much as we used to , but now I can understand why. When the world is filled with so much bull shit you want to be close to the people who keep it 100 % authentic and that's why he will be my man forever.

Henz: Henz might be one of the few people I know who says less than 500 words a year, My son is very silent yet very loud. Henz has always been in my corner and always been like a brother to me. When we met we just became OD cool, I guess real recognize real. Henz is a very smart dude, talented and gifted , usually makes thing seem extremely easy. I know this dude can do anything he puts his mind to. A lot of people try to do music nowadays but henz never rapped until I used to egg him on like son you can do it, now he makes tracks and damn good ones at that. Me and this dude have been through a lot together and I can say he one of the most genuine dudes I've encountered.

Life is funny sometimes, you start off with a big posse and time goes by your left with less and less and when the smoke clears the few standing next to you are usually the people you ride out with for the rest of your life.

At the end of the day, it's the people left standing that really mattered anyway...at least for me it is :)

You don't always have to see or speak to the people who are closest to you every day...they still know where you stand and vice versa. THAT'S the best part for me...

Ran said...

This was a great post. And I do agree it is quality over quantity, because when stuff really goes down you will see who will truly rise to the occasion of what a true friend is suppose to be and who will fall back.
