Around the way fe'lai....not stuck up tuna

So I must admit something...
I am an around the way girl...true and true all the way through...
All day everyday...
I grew up in Forestville/Capital Heights/District Heights area of Maryland...and I wouldn't trade it for anything..

I grew up hanging out with my older brother WC and riding in the truck with my Dad...at the age of 5 I knew how to play dice...at the age of 10 I knew how to fight, and I knew what to say, who to say things to, and where to hang out and where not to hang out around the way...

I would NEVER let anyone call me out of my name, whether it was b*tch or boo...I have a name, and YOU will respect me and my name (see that around the way attitude right there)

I hung with only a select few of females (still do) and other than that I hung off the dolo solo...and was cool with that...

You can find me bumping Biggie Smalls, Nas, Jay Z, to Mary J, Kelis, Monica, to Earth, Wing & Fire, to Maze fet. Frankie Beverly...

You could find me in the latest Jordans with a fresh pair of jeans and white tee just like a dude (man I was a tom boy) but you could also find me in some pumps with the fly gear of the day and time...still today you can find me in the fresh Nike boots and a fly hoodie and chill pants with a vintage hat (I give that example because that is what I have on today) but hey I will throw on some red lipstick just to spice things up..

Money doesn't impress me, OK, you have a 500 Mercedes Benz doesn't move me...that's cool and everything but if you can't hold a conversation with me, if your heart condition isn't right...if your mind isn't right...if you don't know why its important to own a home and not just have all of your money in a car, then you have nothing to say to me...so in short if you are a Flashy McFlflasherton (shot out to E)..we have nothing to really talk about...

Its had to really express me and my attitude...I can hang with the homies on the corner (not that I do that, but you know I still know folks from around the way, and its all cool...feel me? maybe you don't) and the brothers in the business suits...i can hang with them all...
For example, if you and your boys are going to a party...I can be the only female and be fine with that...if your job is having a holiday party I can fit in there too...

I will stand up for myself and stand strong, but I will let you lead...I know how to sit back and just be supportive and loving...I am strong, yet soft...sweet, but take no BS...

I keep a clean house, wash clothes, I cook...

but most importantly I am just who I am...I keeps it real and just keep it cool...

I thought it would be easier to describe myself...but I guess it really isn't...so Imma give up now...

What you say LL...yea man you was talking bout me...

Hey t.c.. I had to smile when
I read this. ATW girls are all
over the globe. I've met some
here in Toronto, and everywhere
I've travelled. Peace Homegirl.

(No matter what LL says, this
album was a major comeback)

T.C. said...

yea that's me...dag how did I forget to talk about how I can watch FOOTBALL ALL DAY on Sunday...come in from Church and chill out with my dude...I can't stand Basketball, but you can watch the game all day and night if you want...I'll chill out and just read a book or take a nap while you are into it...hell if its a good game I'll more than likely get into it too...

So yea that's me...and you are right put on a nice dress and/or just nice outfit in general and represent...

That's me

Run tell dat! you sound secure in who you are and that's something to be proud of. too many folk today are lost and still alone within a crowd as a result of having no personal awareness.
"Money doesn't impress me, OK, you have a 500 Mercedes Benz doesn't move me...that's cool and everything but if you can't hold a conversation with me, if your heart condition isn't right...if your mind isn't right...if you don't know why its important to own a home and not just have all of your money in a car, then you have nothing to say to me..."

that right there is on point and i couldn't agree more. i have a 10 minute rule that i use. it takes 10 mins to know if i'm attracted to you and if i wanna go from there, but without convo and something of substance to back them looks up; honey, you are NOT the one. Booyah!

Have a safe and blessed Christmas and New Year Tee, and I'll see you on the other side in 07
