Real Gangstas Don’t Flex Nuts

Death by Party | Geto Boys: Damn It Feel Good To Be A Gangsta

There are some downsides to living in a “civilized” society. Yes as a whole,  it’s better that the truth of a matter isn’t decided by whoever is fastest with a battle axe, that stepping on someones toe won’t get you shot, (in most parts of the country) or banging that dudes girlfriend won’t result in a rapier in you chest.  Yes as a whole beating each other every time there is an argument in a bar (or in most cases- one person getting beat) is not beneficial to society.

BUT-

while society frowns more and more on physical violence and direct altercations, the results are a populous of fronting, chest beating, shit talking, passive aggressive sneering. People still have the urge to throw down, but laws, rules and manners suppress the urge to actually see what someone is really made of.  I find it exhausting. On Facebook or on the city bus, I get so, so tired of people people puffing their feathers because they  know they don’t have to back it up. We live in a society of yelling, gesturing, empty threats.

I believe Scarface of the Geto Boys said it best in what is possibly one of the best (certainly the most underrated) rap anthems of all time- Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta.

“nigga always gotta high cap
Showin’ all his boys how he shot em
But real gangsta-ass niggas don’t flex nuts
’cause real gangsta-ass niggas know they got em”

If you drop names all the time, you probably don’t have influence.
If you constantly talk about what you’ve done, you are probably lying.
Bullies have glass jaws.
Braggers have small dicks.

James Bond doesn’t talk about the girls he’s fucked.
Mad Max doesn’t flip off other drivers on the road.
