I very vividly remember the most depressing thing someone told me as an adolescent. I was 13, and a woman at the church my family and I attended at the time told me, “You know, these are the best years of your life.” Let me assure you; 13 was not a great year for me.

Interview like A BAWSE!


Today BAWSE (as he shall always be referred) teaches us about interviews. In an interview it’s important to portray confidence, further, if you want to be the bawse, you should do what the bawse does. Here’s the Rickey Rozay guaranteed hired interview script. Trust me.

Q: “Tell me about yourself”

Q: “Okay. Why did you leave your last job?”
A: “Real niggas do real things for real reasons”

Text Message of the Day


“Are you working on a book or something? You’re thinking more critically about porn lately.”

Well I wasn’t, but now that you’ve mentioned it…

Love is…

Your dad showing up at your door at 10:30am with a first aid kit, cornbread and black-eyed peas (which are still warm because your mom just took them out of the crock-pot that morning) all because you cut the shit out of your foot on the laundry room door last night which finally brought on the mini-emotional-breakdown that had been building for about a month while you were on the phone trying to determine if you needed to go get stitches.
