Deep Fried Frenz
MF Doom composed one of the realest songs ever in “Deep Fried Frenz”
“It’s a term some people use loosely.”
“I check the dictionary for the meaning of friends, it said ‘someone who likes to socialize and sympathize; a helper’ and that’s about the size of it. Most of the times, these attributes are one sided.”
Metal Face got me thinking…What would I call a friend?
A friend is someone whose back I’m always gonna have, but if they’re fucking up, I’m gonna let them know. I’m gonna be there by for them when they are fucking up. Sure, things may not be the greatest at the moment, but I won’t leave them in the dust when things are bad. I don’t want to, and will not be the person that disappears whenever things are bad, and then once things are going good, come back around.
They’re gonna get my support, but I will NOT be a yes man. If I don’t fuck with an idea, I’m gonna let you know. If you ask me an opinion, I’m gonna give you an opinion. I wouldn’t want people to be yes men to me. I value my friend’s opinions because they want what’s best for me, so if I ask for an opinion, I would hope that they would give me a honest one.
A friend is someone I feel like I can be comfortable around, be myself, make stupid, random comments and they get it, and bring up any subject or matter and we can have a good conversation about it and opinions will be respected. We can turn around and have a serious conversation, and then just start shooting the shit and cracking jokes. We can even get into a verbal or physical (thankfully the latter hasn’t happened…yet) and it not affect our friendship. If something like that can ruin our friendship, we weren’t friends in the 1st place.
I want to be a part of all of my friend’s success story. Sure, not many of my friends really have it all right now, but we’re all working towards getting there. I want my friends to be able to say “Will was always there, through all of the shit.” WE gonna come up. I want the best for all of my friends. Nothing but the best. I have at least 2-3 different group of friends. None of ‘em really know each other, and I have different connections with all of them. I don’t call many my friends, but they are my friends. If anybody has to question if they are my friend or not, then there’s a pretty good chance they’re not my friend. Associates maybe, but not my friend.
I don’t make many connections with people, so whenever I do make connections with people, I don’t like losing those connections with people. Yes, sometimes people grow a part from each other, but as long as I want to be invested in the friendship, I will be. I have friends that I don’t talk to as often (some months), but they still know they can hit me up at anytime and I’ll talk to them. It’s not too much of a beat missed, just some catching up.
Anyways, that’s just some of the attributes that I have as a friend, and things that I expect in my friendships. Anything that I expect in a friendship is how I would treat my friend, so anything I’m asking in a friend is nothing more than I would give out myself in a friendship.
