Last Monday I had a special guest, Damon Dash on my show and we discussed growing up and doing things that are age appropriate. We laughed about his glasses because his ‘specs’ were very cute and I thought they were just a fashion statement. He QUICKLY told me ‘I wear these because my eyes are bad. To wear these for fun or for fashion is a joke, at least in my circle.’
Which brings me to this weeks BAN! At what point and age is it time to GROW UP and begin acting your age! We see girls everyday in the club that are clearly of a certain age but they are wearing mini skirts and dancing as if it’s 1999.
Guys: Is it really okay for your jeans to sag or even for you to follow the same trends the eighteen (18) year old boys do when your forty (40)?
Ladies: SERIOUSLY, Are you really gonna be in competition with your daughter for the tightest jeans or coolest RocaWear tee?
So let’s be clear here’s a few things that CANT be done when you are over the age of 35:
GETTING DRUNK IN THE CLUB TO THE POINT WERE YOUR FRIENDS NEED TO DRAG YOU OUT OF THE PARTY!
WEARING A KNOCK OFF HAND BAGS OR GLASSES (doesn’t matter what age)
LIVING BEYOND YOUR MEANS… NOT TAKING CARE OF YOUR CHILD BUT YOUR DRIVING A RANGE ROVER IS NOT COOL!!
TRYING TO GET BACKSTAGE AT A LIL WAYNE OR T.I CONCERT SO YOU GET ‘GET PUT ON’
STILL HUSTLING IN THE STREET AND SAYING THE ‘MAN’ IS HOLDING YOU BACK. (Get a job! GROW UP!! OBAMA IS IN OFFICE. YOU HAVE TONS OF OPPORTUNITY!)
I’ll be back next week with another five (5) BAN topics but in the mean time check out the audio from my interview last week with DD172, Black Roc and Creative Control CEO, Damon Dash!!
