First off I’d like to thank my blogging buddy Kat for letting me post this on her cool ass site. This is a rant about my best friend, so obviously I cannot post this on my blog.
Where should I start? Well I won’t bore you with a long drawn out story so let me break this down as simple as I can. Basically my friend of over fifteen years is a musician/rapper. Well he had a small record deal about two years ago and the company he was signed with went bankrupt, like a shitload of other US companies. When they went bankrupt they also took ALL of his music with them leaving my buddy basically fucked and right back to square one.
So me being the friend and good guy that I am I decided I was going to help my friend with his music. Now I didn’t know shit about recording music at the time, but I’m an IT guy and I know computers so how hard could it be? I went out and spent my own money on building a recording studio in my house, took a few lessons with Pro-Tools, built him a sick ass website and we were on our way. A year or so later I was making his beats for him and we put together a whole album, which I also paid for. My buddy then started to get some shows and a little recognition, that’s when he changed.
Right after he started getting noticed is when he became a total dick. At first I was having fun making the music with him, but it soon became almost like a job with an asshole boss, a job with an asshole boss where it’s costing ME money at that. Suddenly my friend of 15 years was no longer my friend anymore and all he cares about now is himself. He started treating me like I was his fucking do-boy and not his friend. Talking to me like I owed him something when in fact it was my time and money that got him to where he’s at. He didn’t care about me or anything that was going on in my life. Nope he cared only about what I was going to do for him. Yup I had spent a year of my time and a lot of my own money helping my friend accomplish his dream only to get fucked over and treated like I hadn’t done a damn thing for him.
Recently I decided to stop working with him and just go back to my regular old life without spending hours of my day on shit for the prick. Yeah asshole I’m not doing a fucking thing for you anymore because I see now that you’re not my real friend. All you care about is yourself and could give two shits about me and the stuff that I have done for you. This has been a long time coming and to tell you the fucking truth I really don’t care anymore. Yeah I’m a little upset that I lost a lifelong friend but you know what? I don’t think he ever was my real friend in the first place. I’m better off without you fucker, get some other asshole to do all the shit I did for you. And by the way I’m gonna send you an invoice for all the fuckin money you owe me fuck face!
