Stuff B-Boys Like: WeedPOSTED ON March 20th, 2010 BY Calvin
A point of clarification: this is meant to be satirical. I don’t smoke, nor do I condone it. I’m just pointing out some of the quirkier sides of b-boy culture. Enjoy, and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments! -C
It’s not just at IBE, either. The universal way to a b-boy’s heart isn’t through his eardrums or his eyes — it’s through the end of a lit blunt.
Throw age, language, culture, religion, and all that out the window: if there’s weed smoke, b-boys will come to it like it’s the Bat-Signal. That YouTube celeb-b-boy whose outfit you bit? Puffing like a smokestack. That little kid who’s way too good at dancing for his age? It’s that green, man.
And you thought hip-hop and b-boying could unify people. There’s just something about dudes in a circle sharing movements they’ve created and dudes passing a blunt around that just go hand in hand.
Every once in a while, you’ll come across a b-boy who says ludicrous things like “I don’t smoke weed,” or “That’s bad for you.”
What he’s really trying to say is, “Hold on, wait until my mom/girlfriend/kid leaves,” or maybe “I’m so blazed right now that I forgot how to talk.”
What do you think? Does smoking up help or hurt your dance? Either way, let’s be responsible with our actions. We each play an important role in this culture, and the fewer b-boys and b-girls in jails, hospitals, and morgues, the better.
