Marcus Troy’s Rules On Co-Signs

7 Jun

One of my favorite bloggers, Marcus Troy, recently made a post from his Berry about the decreased value of co-signs. The game – and not just hip-hop, but “the game” as in everything – has really migrated from co-signing people who you thought could capitalize on a chance, to just putting on people you’re cool with and/or barely know. I’m personally pretty careful with who I give the Ketchums Stamp of Approval, though I’ll admit I’ve made a few mistakes. People who don’t take their clout seriously make me wanna do what Mr. Troy’s doing in the pic above: take a damn drink. Follow the homie’s rules, and you should be in good shape.

1. Only Co-sign someone or a movement if you have done your research
2. Only Co-Sign someone or a movement you believe in
3. When it comes to people, not everyone is who you think they are be careful who you co-sign
4. Be decisive! Don’t just co-sign something because everyone else is co-signing it. Make up your own mind.
5. Really consider who is your friend and your homie. Is he a friend of yours or a friend of ours?
