Fathers Day Tribute

Dad always gets the short end of the stick. Ma Dukes gets breakfast in bed, flowers, spa certificates and gifts. What do you get your pops? A tie? Some tools? Gifts that say, “Get your ass to work and keep the checks coming…” The worst is that, until your ass gets a job, all those [...]

Dad always gets the short end of the stick. Ma Dukes gets breakfast in bed, flowers, spa certificates and gifts. What do you get your pops? A tie? Some tools? Gifts that say, “Get your ass to work and keep the checks coming…” The worst is that, until your ass gets a job, all those wack Fathers Day gifts come from his wallet anyway.

Don’t let me get started on how there’s never an entire rap song* about Dad – EVER. Tupac didn’t write a hit single called, ‘Yo Pops’. You’re the worst human being ever if you skimp on the Mother’s Day plans in a recession, but it’s okay to get by with the usual Sunday meatloaf and a high-five when it comes to Dear Old Dad.

F–k that…

I know the easy answer is that, there’s a TON of single mothers out there, because a generation of men skipped out on their responsibilites. This is even more of a reason to raise it up for your old man. My Pops’ a man of modest means, but he always gives with two hands. He never ditched work to do shit he wanted to do, and whether it was teaching me the finer points of baseball, buying my first set of turntables, or cutting the check for private school, he did it out of a sense of love & duty.

Today, Father’s Day is rightfully the longest day of the year. Give your Pops a pound for stickin’ around…

*’Ye drops a couple lines at least. Why wasn’t his puppet in those playoff commercials? Must have been on tour…
