"The Yes Man" by @NateSaid:
Shits been very weird lately. Solange doing Mortal Kombat moves on Jay Z in elevators. LeBron going back to the Cavs. The T.I/Tiny/Floyd Mayweather love triangle unfolding before our eyes. Niggas getting nose rings. Very very spooky happenings. But I’m here to touch on another topic. The “Yes Man”.
The “Yes Man” is Top 5 Worst People ever because they’re the equivalent to a hype-man that is hyping someone (or something) that deserves little to no hype. (Unfortunately) We all know a “Yes Man”.
Apparently, the new trendy thing to do is be a rapper, or be a fashion designer…yo Instagram even has a double-tabs on pictures allowing girls to believe that they’re aspiring models. With that being said even females have entered the “Yes Man” vortex.
Dawg, y’all iPhone models just gotta chill all the way out. Especially the ones with their email in their social network bios like photographers and agencies are actually taking time out of the day to contact them. Those thirst-traps aren’t doing anything but getting you “likes” on Instagram and “favorites” or “retweets” on Twitter. Please cut the shit. In this case the “Yes Man” would be those friends that always seem to find their way into the comments with phrases like: “Yassss girlllll.”, “You better work”, the heart emojis, etc etc. But all jokes aside, if you really believe deep down in your heart that you have potential to model or you think your friend does then you contact photographers and set up a shoot. Just don’t be all the social networks faking the funk.
Now sometimes it’s those copy and paste rappers that do nothing but record then terrorize innocent civilians on Twitter by invading our mentions (and sometimes DMs) with links to their YouTube, Datpiff mixtape or Soundcloud. Retweeting your best friends song is not putting money in your pocket nor is going to get him signed. Matter of fact, more times than not I’m willing to bet those kinds of tactics get ignored. Your boy can rap AND make quality music? Email it to blogs, that’s how you’ll get noticed. Your boy can’t rap OR make quality music? Please let him know. You can’t claim to be a real nigga with questionable actions like that. If you’re a real nigga and a true friend, you would holla at him like “Nah, you can’t rap.” Just don’t be a “Yes Man”.
And the completely fucked up part about the entire situation? The “Yes Man” got the all the real niggas out there looking like haters. Simply because the real niggas won’t support the basura that’s being flooded throughout the cyber streets, we look like haters. That’s not cool. It’s not our fault that your “friends” are out here lying to you. They’re not your real friends, clearly. Will I lie to you and say your movement is dope when it’s not? No. The real nigga in me would never allow that happen. But does that make me a hater? Hell-fucking-no is the answer. We can’t be out here helping corny niggas (and corny bitches) build fake egos that they don’t deserve.
