Hey Mikey- “A #PSA For All My Riders, Baby Mamas, & Down Ass Chicks!”

Hey Mikey,

I consider myself a pretty loyal girlfriend. I cook, clean, pay bills, and another four letter word I’d rather not type. My boyfriend is a really talented music producer and recently he has caught the attention of a number of Atlanta artists including T.I., Future, Lil Yachty, and Ludacris. I definitely have not minded supporting him as he produced, but now he is talking about becoming an artist and just told me today a record label is interested in him. Now I have a problem…I don’t want him becoming one! His profile will be elevated and labels never want their artists in relationships. I gave four years of my life up for him! How do I tell him I’m not happy about this?

-Don’t Want Him Brand New

***Don’t Want Him Brand New, I love your pen name! I am definitely a Jazmine Sullivan fan! Now, getting to the task at hand; let this serve as a PSA to all Riders, Down Ass Chicks, and Baby Mamas. Love is selfless, and this is not about you! Your man has an amazing opportunity and he should definitely explore it. I agree you two should talk, but not about your happiness with the situation, but your concerns. Be completely open and honest with him. There is no reason your relationship cannot survive this and elevate to your desired level of contentment. Don’t you start acting “Brand New!” After all the label can’t break you up, that’s all on the two of you.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
