sometimes after a super profitable night, like new years, it’s hard to get back in the saddle and drive for normal rates.
but then you get some sorority girls or a fascinating man
or best of all the assistant to two of the hottest rappers to ever come out of Mississippi and you realize, oh yeah, this is why ive been doing it for so long: because of the people.
picked up a nice girl, a white girl, in mid city who said we’re going to Burbank. after a short while it was revealed that we were going to a recording studio.
eventually she clued me in to who she was and who she worked with: a duo of southern rappers who she grew up with called Rae Sremmurd. i told her that i was very old and didnt know who she was talking about.
so i turned on my Spotify (RIP Rdio) and as we played the tracks i realized not only did i know one of their tunes, i knew about four of them. i became very excited and had lots of questions for her: where have they toured, what are they like, where will they play in LA, etc etc.
she said i was the coolest 40-year shes ever met.
i said flattery will get you everywhere.
and even though the ride was a long one, it ended far too quickly. but now im def a fan.
