Who remembers “Dial My Heart” singers, The Boys? They’re kind of hard to forget, those young brothas were killin’ it in the 80’s. Today their lead singer, Hakim Abdulsamad, will be turning 42 years old this year (2017). Okay, I’ll pause to let that sink in, because yes, it’s been that long and we’re really THAT old school now, LOL.

Back to Hakim…he recently took to social media to give his take on strip clubs, his concept of what he refers to as “bad b%^ches,” and the state of of our society that were pretty interesting.Screen Shot 2017-02-26 at 2.24.09 PM

In his Facebook post, Hakim first started off by explaining that he recently visit to a strip club for ‘researching purposes’:

Hakim’s post: ‘My brother said “Yo I gotta take you to the strip club. Not to see naked ladies, but to see how the music is being used to support the strip and alcohol industries. And to see how the sexual energy is being misdirected.” He knows I’m not that type, so he said “just suffer through it so you can see how it all works.” I went with him.’

Hakim’s conclusion after exiting the strip club- ‘Strippers are unhappy and trashy’ ‘Good girls are classy’:

‘I left thinking about how African girls wanna be like “bad bitches” not having a clue what the real life is about. I also had the thought that some ‘Good Girls’ feel like they get the short end of the stick, because ‘bad bitches’ appear to be enjoying life, getting attention, money and hanging out with celebs… I don’t know, maybe thats why they wanna dress as naked as possible; from classy to trashy. Thats a hustler’s life. Those girls didn’t look so happy to me. Again “all that glitters ain’t gold.” No offense to anyone; just pointing out my observations from a global perspective. American dream or nightmare?’

Okay, first let me acknowledge that I get the point Hakim is trying to make about the current state of our society. However, as much as I would like to stay focused on his topic, because it’s a serious one that should be discussed, it’s soooo difficult for me to ignore the underlying humor in this, LOL…or the big elephant in the room, so to speak, since he brought attention to it. So I have to ask y’all. With all of the access we now have on the internet to research just about everything, especially sexual topics, strip clubs, alcohol, music, human behaviors, etc.:
a) In your opinion, do you think Hakim only went to the strip club to research the ‘misdirected sexual energy’ and how the ‘alcohol industry is being affected?’ OR…

b)  Or do you think Hakim had other intentions as well- you know, the kind that men typically have when visiting a strip club- to check out the lovely strippers inside of it…and not for research purposes?
Anything’s possible…it’s an honest question…I mean no harm…no judgement…just saying…Hakim, I still got love for you brotha.
