1. Fa$hion Killa
Any girl can wear a dress and heels. And sure, there’s a time and a place for that. If I’m at a club (kill me), attire’s gotta be on point. But usually I’m not. Dive Bar, warehouse party, last minute house party, pre-game-kick-back with the homies that lasts way too long: these are the types of weekend nights I like. What gets me going even more? Surveying the crowd and finding that one girl that wore the loose bottoms, hi-top sneaks or Timberland boots, with the baggy-plaid button up, hair down, and a beanie on top. Lookin’ straight out of a Save The Last Dance scene. Yea, that’s the girl I wanna talk to.
2. She’ll Give You that Good Brain
Any girl that really listens to Hip Hop is listening to rebellion and soaking it in. Sometimes music can be the best education. The same way Bob Dylan pulled it off back in the day, some of the best Hip Hop songs out there are filled with social commentary. Odds are, if you find yourself a Hip Hop chick, she’s going to be informed about what’s really going on in the world with lower income communities, the ins and outs of American politics, where our government is failing us, etc. We all know good conversation can go a long way. But watch out, she’s gonna be feisty!
3. Lovin’ the Crew
You ever like a girl, but you meet her friends and you start to see the boat sinking? Or she meets your friends and gives you that look like you’re doing something wrong? A Hip Hop chick knows that a man has a lot of pride in the company he keeps. This is La Familia. Before you know it, all your boys are going to pull you to the side and be like, “Yo, good job. She’s perfect for you.” And you’re going to walk with a little more lean in your step knowing you are with the baddest chick around. Don’t let the homies get too close, though.
4. Jealousy is Misery
Every guy wants to feel like he can tell his girl anything. Like Kanye said, “Have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?” Maybe you won’t get that close, but a real Hip Hop girl knows the difference between love and lust. You don’t need to worry about insecurities with this one. If she catches you slippin’, she’ll let you know the business. And she’ll definitely come correct with whatever girl is scheming on you. But at the end of the day, she knows you’re just fronting in front of your boys. You acting wild in public, but when you go home she knows who you’re really trying to impress.
5. All I Want for My Birthday Is A…
You’re not going to get some sweater or Groupon deal to go meditate together. I love some good reflection, but your Hip Hop chick is going to get all your closest friends together, throw you a dope party, and then get you two tickets to a Kendrick Lamar secret show that you didn’t even know existed. And she knows you’re going to take her because she’s the best partner in crime. And she’d expect the same from you. WIN WIN.
6. You’re A Good Girl And You Know It
Your Hip Hop girlfriend is going to hit you with the updates while you’re away. She knows the latest hot track, predictions for next big song, and your “New Sh*t” playlist is already shared with you on your Spotify. Don’t worry about leaving for work or vacation and losing out on all the latest in music. Your Hip Hop girlfriend is always one step ahead because she lives that life on her own anyway.
7. TTU: Team Turn Up
You don’t have to hold back when your favorite rap song comes on in the car, bar, club, or party. You know you wanna drop everything and rap to that shit. And your girl is going to do it with you. And if not, she’ll “smile like a proud dad, watchin’ his only son that made it.” Don’t be shy. She still thinks you’re the hot! And when you hit the dance floor, peep the haters staring. You’re the sweatiest, most fun couple in the room and everyone envies you. Love is real.
