Some people have become confused because of some terminology I use. I type the way I talk, the way an urban African American youth from Youngstown/Brooklyn talks. Well then, this here is the definition of several word I use that some may not get:
dapper: basically, well dressed.
swag: swagger. The way you do what you do, how you carry yourself. (b) Hating on my swag: pretty much what it says. Hating on my style. (c) Biting my swag: copying my style.
Esco: my name comes part from Pablo Escobar, a notorious cocaine dealer in the 1970s. No, I'm not a dopeboy, but I researched him when I had to do a report on an infamous person from the last century. Also, in part homage to Nas, my favorite living rapper. And to Aaron McGruder, the creator of The Boondocks, because one of the characters, Riley, goes by R. Esco as his alias.
While I'm here, I might as well explain some of my pictures. Most of them are of my favorite players and teams, but a few are different.
One of them is a picture of the Tuskegee Airmen. My great-grandfather was a member, and flew in North Africa, but he is not in the picture. Before he died, he claimed to have shot down two of the German Luftwaffe. I chose to believe him, because well, it makes him seem a lot cooler.
Another is of Salma Hayek. I happen to have a crush on Salma Hayek.
The otter is just a picture I found on Google that I think is funny.
Two of them are album covers, The Notorious B.I.G.'s Ready To Die, and Mos Def and Talib Kweli's Black Star. These are my two my favorite albums of all time.
I've got two Nas pictures, two more Ludacris, one of T.I., one of Talib Kweli, one of The Clipse and another of UGK. These are the rappers I currently like the most.
Keyshia Cole, Beyonce, Rosario Dawson and Sharon Carpenter I think are fine.
Two are skyline pictures of my hometown, Youngstown. I've two more for Youngstown State's football team. One is my cousin, P.J. Mays. Appalachian State is there because, well, you know why.
Super Fly one of my favorite movies.
Boondocks is the best comic strip since Calvin and Hobbes.
The Wario pic is from a few of us on here were doing the Mario characters.
The Godfather, Scarface and Airplane! are more of my favorite movies.
