When i was Growing up in Brooklyn all my mom and dad would play was Bob Marley and Erykah Badu. Im surprised i didnt spend the rest of my time smoking weed and writing poetry. We had a pet praying mantis, a garden in our window where some strange fruit would grow, and a big canvas rolled out on the wall for my dad to work on his paintings. My dad had long ass dreads and my mom had an afro. Everything from jazz to grunge rock was played in the crib, every food from thai to yemeni was eaten, and yo! when i would have play dates and shit with my parent’s friend’s kids there were girls from all corners of everywhere! from black to mermaid. I was a happy ass Five year old. Then i moved to queens, But that will be another story.
Where did you grow up in nyc? what was it like at night? how old are you? what were the trains like?
Grew up in Queens & Brooklyn. In brooklyn i lived right in between a white neighborhood and a black neighborhood so it was pretty cool weaving in and out of both areas. You have know how to eat chicken sometimes and cheese & crackers sometimes. You know what im saying? Brooklyn at night could be dangerous between the crazies and the big ass rats but the parties made everything worth it. In queens i lived in a all spanish neighborhood, i mean ALL spanish. Everytime there was a big event the whole block and every block in a 20 block radius would be blasting their selection of party music. It was cool though because me and the chicas got along well. At night i would skate around queens meet up with friends and go hang out. What was cool about queens and the area i lived in was the fact that even though i lived in an all spanish neighborhood there were greek, Asian, white, black and mixed areas all in walking distance so it was cool having friends of different creeds and in the rare instance we all got together The best stories were made. Nyc is like that all through out though. seeing a Asian kid in a group of Hispanic’s was dope as hell to me. Mannnn the parties in queens were either Teen clubs or HOUSE PARTIES both in which the term grinding wouldnt be enough to explain it. Ill talk about it some other time but that shit was awesome. Im fifteen years old and i first stated really using the train around last year, and i got lost. i got lost more times i count seeing a rat and god damn there were alot of rats. The train system was cool when i didnt get lost though and i never really got into a fight on the train unless they stepped on my kicks and didn’t say sorry. The freaks come out at night man well not even the crazy people on the train and the train stations is always my favorite part. Whether it was the train preachers, the Jamaicans smoking long ass blunts, the kid raising money to go to college (dude was like 34 tho) or the drunk girls there was always something going on in every commute. alot of events were planned that went down on the trains. The pantsless train ride the pillow fights the foam attack the flash mobs and one time a couple had sex on the 4line. They were nasty though but yeah thats pretty much it well there is more but i don’t want to rape everyones dashboard feel free to ask more questions like these i actually like them.
