According to Damon Dash, there are certain (very specific and very random) things that make a man, a man. There are also other (very specific and very random) things that are tell-tale signs that one is from Harlem. These and other great thoughts from his interview with The Breakfast Club have inspired the latest hilarious hashtag on Black Twitter: #TweetLikeDameDash.
“A real man won’t ask or answer questions about another mans money,” he told DJ Envy and Angela Yee. “How can another man call another man boss? That’s like calling another man daddy.”
Keeping with Dame’s (specific and random) logic, Twitter’s genius hit new heights with their latest trend in hip-hop parody. Peep the most laughable tweets below:
I can’t participate in the #TweetLikeDameDash trend because men don’t tweet about other men and besides who listens to social media?
