More Famous than Good
Reading time: 3 – 4 minutes
You’re right most people who think they are something when you really get to know them aren’t about anything. Most people take their little bit of talent and try to find someone to exploit, dick or make it bigger than what it is. That’s the nature of the game and time we are in right now. This is why people are becoming more famous talking about famous people with talents than actually having a talent. This is why most of the music, clothing, electronics and just people in general fade away almost as fast as they arrived.
Don’t be surprised that a lot of tricks are coming up with as many angles as possible to be famous. Some people are trying to be Pro-Black knowing they are scared of Black Folks. Some people are trying to tell you what’s wrong knowing they are too scared to come outside and fix it. Some people are showing what’s wrong with others knowing they are cowards to actually standing up theirselves. Really all these people have something in common and that is they want to be Famous without proving a damn thing. They want to have you believe that they know more than everyone else just like the cats who read a teleprompter for your local news.
All these tricks need is one shot to sell you their BS and if they get enough people to buy they’ll come out with version two. Look in this game originality is rare and when it does come out it’ll last. But, the game right now is to produce something so fake that you buy it off the crazy angle they provide. So anyone can write a book about Hustling getting all the things a lot of cats have wrote on the blogs and mix it with pimping and viola we got a Sucker’s rendition of game. People are trying to be life coaches and motivational speakers knowing damn well they don’t care two shits whether you actually benefit. Suckers during this recession are looking around and saying what are other cats making money at and brushing up on their manipulation tactics.
There’s always a way to know if people are genuine. See if they stick to the same line no matter what they say then you’ll know that’s who they really are. If you find a Sucker who will talk about whatever is popular then you have a cat who really isn’t about it but wants to convince you he is about it. You have a con artist who really wants to be the foremost authority on shit they know will get hits on a website. Since cats are starving in this recession you see Suckers reaching for straws and making sure you get the short one.
The same kind of people come out during bad times. They are the carpetbaggers and traveling medicine men selling bottles of magic elixirs. The fame is all they want because if they can get enough Suckers to buy the shit their selling it’ll be enough for them to disappear after their one hit. Finding good, beneficial and knowledgeable information in this time will be harder than usual so beware of the cats who are more famous than good.
