[QUOTE=ShadyLady] I grew up in the hood. Entertaining as hell.

I remember I got a beating cuz of this girl named Toni in 3rd grade. We lived in the same apartment complex and we used to walk to school together all the time. Her mama, Ms. Jackie, was a cashier at the gas station. She used to always just cash her checks, keep cash around the house, and go get money orders when it was time to pay bills.

Anyway, one day, we all walking to school and we stopped at the Arab store ( yes, that's what our ignorant asses called although I don't know why, and yes, our ignorant asses pronounced it Aye-rab). All of a sudden, Toni tells us all( like 6 of us) that we can get whatever we want. Everybody kept it simple and got like a bag of chips and a quarter juice. Toni was like, " That's all y'all want? I got money!" Next thing you know, we had the counter covered with Jolly Ranchers, hot sausages, pickle eggs, pig feet, chips, and all that other hood fare. At lunch, Toni was ballin out again. Everybody and they mama was buying the lil extra snacks they used to sell in the cafeteria. Same thing after school at the candy lady house.

This went on for like two or three days. Finally, one day Toni tells us if her mama or big brother asks, tell them she hasn't had any extra money. Sure enough, soon as I get home, my mama and Ms. Jackie are talking in the living room.

TURNED OUT TONI HAD DONE STOLE HER MAMA RENT MONEY FROM OUTTA THE AJAX CAN! They already knew what was up cuz one of the other girls in our complex came home with a bag full of candy and said Toni brought it for her and was buying a bunch of us stuff.

Can you believe my mama tore my ass up cuz she said I shoulda known better cuz it was no way Toni shoulda had that much money. She was right tho , but I never suspected she stole no rent money.

The funniest part was Ms. Jackie was talking bout suing the school for the rent money for letting Toni buy over $100 worth of snacks in just a few days.

Then I fought Toni cuz my mama made me give up my allowance for like a month to make up for everything Toni brought me lol. Then I got my ass beat for that too lol.[/QUOTE
Know all about the ARAB stores...lol. dirty mfs always trying holla...lol

When I was younger every other Saturday when we didnt have choir rehersal we would go to the projects and have what my parents called a "reach out, cook out."

We brought a drum set abd everything.

It was awful! We would hand out turkey burgers, chips, baked beans and sweet tea. What was so hood about it is that my mom said cheese was too expensive so the kids put cheetos on their dry ass turkey burgers.

We could never do this today because not only did they have to wait to eat after we told them to get off drugs but my dad would preachfor thirty damn minutes. I used to want to diiiiiie!


I am dying laughing.

Y'all wouldn't have made it in my neighborhood. Our crackheads woulda threw something at y'all.

We used to have this crackhead named Hattie. She would lurk outside all the fast food joints, and ask you for change. Hattie knew not to ask us for money cuz my great grandma would just cuss her out and my mama would tell her she shouldn't have habits she can't afford.

One day we were in Popeye's, and Hattie was outside doing her normal, asking people for change " cuz she was hungry". This older woman came in and announced she was gonna buy Hattie something to eat. Even the manager told her, "Ma'am she don't want food." The lady insisted she couldn't let Hattie go hungry, and proudly walked out with that 2 piece.

Next thing you know, you hear that box of chicken hit the window. We look, and Hattie done threw the food. We could hear her screaming, " Did I ask yo muthafukcin ass for some chicken, or did I say I needed some money? Ain't nobody tell you to buy me no chicken. I coulda fried my own damn chicken. You know what I coulda did with that money?"

Then Hattie had the audacity to pick up the box of chicken, come in, and ask the manager for a refund. They had to threaten to call the police on her cuz she stood outside trying to sell that box to people as they were coming in.

Hattie also offered to suck my lil brother up, but that wasn't really funny to me cuz he was like 9 .

This happened maybe a year or two ago...we went to visit my kids grandmother (my daughters dad's mother) at her apt, very rough area. Anyway, were there for about an hour or so, and you hear all this screaming in the hallway. My eyes got wide & I'm like what's that? He goes, Sh!t you might see anything in this bitch...you might see a mountain lion in the hallway. Well...his mom starts cooking & it got really warm in the kitchen, so she opens the front door & one of the windows so we could get a cross breeze. We all are talking and catching up, & he gets up to use the bathroom...a few mins later my son goes "WHOOOA" and starts jumping up we all look down at the floor and there's a huge ass squirrel running like crazy under the table...We all start screaming and jumping around, grandma grabs my son by the collar and starts screaming, kill it kill it...the squirrel is sliding across the tile and dashing around, finally made it out the front door....my boo runs out the bathroom like what happened, and we tell him a squirrel was in the kitchen, he went all down on the floor laughing...& was like I told you....

It's not really important that this took place in the hood but anyway...

for a disclaimer, this was back when I was snot nosed and very naive....to put an age on it I think I was 15.

I was crushing on this very sexy chick from the projects (first L). She was like 3 inches taller than me (2nd L) but had a Nicki Minaj kind of vibe to her. Cute, round ass, fun personality. I was a virgin so I was so green to how things worked. I met her through friends and me and her talked on the phone a few times and chilled together in the projects. I was texting her everyday. Calling her beautiful. Basically I was trying to be her boyfriend smh (3rd L).

Anyway, about 3 weeks after this started  I was hanging out with some dudes from that part of the hood and the topic of her came up, on some "oh you know TeeTee?" sh*t. I was with 5 dudes and 3 of the 5 basically said they knocked her off (4, 5, and 6 L). One of the dudes claimed that she would suck his dick before school, and the last time was recent. I'm sitting there on the couch feeling like an idiot since I had tongue kissed her (7th L). But I wanted to chalk it up to them lying on their dick.

That night (it was a friday) there was a dance at the rec center but I was trying to set up an evening with the young lady. She was steady telling me that she liked me cuz I 'wasnt like the other dudes' but I was pissed since once again, nice guy was finishing last and not gettin no pussay. Skipping past L's 8-10 I convinced my friend to let me have the key to his parents crib (his parents were gone) in the projects and I was about to convince the girl to chill with me in the apartment while everyone else went to the dance.

I was talking to her and I dont know how exactly we got to this point but I vividly remember her saying "Random, you do know that we dont have to be dating for me to fucc you right"

I was blown...never had a female uttered those words to me before. Inside I was like



Anyway, she said we could 'go chill' at my friends house and we started walking across the yard, but before we got there we got stopped by one of the dudes I mentioned earlier. He was ghetto fabulous with the new clothes/shoes and sh*t and I could tell where she really wanted to be for the night. He was the one telling me how she sucked a good dicc. Anyway, he spotted us, and came straight at her like "you aint coming to the dance?"....and im looking at him like




She twisted her lil lips, gave a crooked smile and started talking about how she wasn't planning to cuz it was lame....straight ignoring me, he put his arm around her and started with that touchy feely sh*t...it ain't take much but a few "c'mons" for her to say she'd go, but after she went home to change first. He knew what I was trying to set up so it was def cock blocking on his end...


They asked me to come with them but I wasn't about to be a third wheel so I went inside and played Grand Theft Auto in my friends apartment. I swear I had this look on my face when he put his arms on her and they left.




Oh well...live and learn.






Epilogue. This was around the time I really started smelling myself. My beard was beginning to grow, so I wasn't looking so baby faced, and I found myself wanting to be more hood and hard, and hanging with those dudes was one of the ways I thought I'd get some credibility. That led to some other hoodrat stuff with my friend moments, especially the next summer. The kind of stuff Kendrick Lamar spoke about in his Good Kid, Mad City album. Mad releateable.

Now heres the funny part: She found the girls house because my nephew remembered the route his father took.....and at the time he was only like 6yo....I called him Mapquest for the longestLOL

Same thing with my cousinLOL

She knew the general area and we drove her son who was about 8 at the time to the block and he remembered the stump in front of the girl's house he was playing on while his dad was inside.  He even re-enacted how he kept jumping over it.   We had all of dudes clothes in the car so once little cuz pointed out the house cuz proceeded to cover the front yard with his clothes.   She was real calm, like scary calm and he wouldn't come out.  Him and the chick just stared out the window like they were frozen.

Lol RT.
Was tryna wife a flipper.

K-Foxx, one time my step dad's ex wife sent my mom Polaroids of them (step dad and ex wife) cuddled up at city park. So my mom and her Bestfriend dropped all his sh*t off at her house while my step dad was there lol. He came outside crying n sh*t lol. & his ex wife was like f her I'll get you some more clothes. Lmao.
I'm glad my mom is getting a divorce.

Another time I was with my dad in the projects, I was about 5 or 6 and this lady who was doing my hair started talking sideways about my mom. My dad jumped up so quick and hung her out the window. After he let her back in he made her apologize to me lol.

In my moms ratchet days(she was like a freshman in college) she ran with a chick named Kim.
Kim messed with some Cuban man that sold drugs & one night he asked my mom and Kim to bring him to the melph (a housing project) and sit outside with the car on. My mom got scared and dipped out but Kim stayed. I guess the Cuban man shot someone because as soon as Kim heard the gun shots she derbed out and sped to my moms apartment. The Cuban dude and his friends showed up like an hour later begging Kim to go outside. She went outside and the dude beat her ass for leaving him. Kim got mad at my mom because she didn't jump in and they haven't talked since lol.
