80 Reasons You’re Not A 80’s Baby

Old School

People always ask me to define “80’s Baby”. What does that mean? Do you have to be born in the 80’s? To answer your questions, 80’s Baby is more of a mentality. A slightly fucked up-cutthroat-entrepreneur-ish fuck you old school niggas y’all stuck in the 80’s mentality. Therefore I’ll give you 80 examples of what the non-80’s Baby would do. Here’s the first twenty:

1) You brag about not liking a rap album in years

2) You know who Jarobi is

3) You don’t understand why Young Jeezy is popular

4) You know who Gail King is

5) You don’t have a myspace page

6) You have a myspace page but with no picture. It makes you look like a child molester

7) You own a Roots album

8) But you don’t own a Gangsta Grillz

9) You cant appreciate Diplomatic Immunity for the Opus of ignorance that is was

10) You shave your own hair and don’t go to the barber

11) You religiously follow YN’s Break-A-Day

12) You say things like “Record Sales Don’t Matter!!!”. Loser

13) Getting tickets to that Tribe comeback tour?

14) You get mad when people say Lil’ Wayne is top 5 right now

15) You don’t “own”, “run” or not the “CEO” of a small side hustle company

16) You don’t have a blackberry, sidekick, gmail or any other form of communication besides your cell phone

17) You DJ but won’t give up your vinyl for Serato

18) You’re favorite rap album came from the Native Tounges camp

19) You mastered Reganomics

20) You saw New Jack City in the movies

*Sorry I took so long to post today. The computer in the studio is dub slow. Hence the lack of links. I’ll make up for it tomorrow.
