So, I’m at the drive-thru earlier and I bump into the same nigga I saw at the gas station this morning. Still asking for spare change. I’m thinking to myself, “Self, this muhfucka need his ass beat. How are you gonna just ask people for money all day long and not do anything for it ?”. I know what you’re thinking, “Damn, you’re cold” or “If they could do something about their situation then they would”, but follow me on this one…Dude wasn’t a drug addict, my uncle was a crackhead for years, so I know one when I see one. He seemed to be in relatively good shape and healthy (from what I could see from the outside), which lets me know that he could be doing something else. I’m not saying he could go down to Deloitte & Touche and get a job tomorrow, but if you have enough time to stand in front of various establishments, then you have enough time to dedicate to getting a serious hustle going. Recycle cans, steal a lawnmower and cut some grass, be the neighborhood car wash nigga, chip off little pieces of soap and serve it to the fiends @ $5 a pop, something. The shit works, it’s been proven. Whatever dollars are being made from the drive-thru, that profit can be quadrupled with a little bit of effort. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll hit these niggas with some change, I even buy food on occasion, but damn, step your hustle game up. So, next time someone asks if you have some spare change, tell them that you have the answers for them. “Get ya hustle on nigga, get ya hustle on”…
