The Adventures of Yung Joose and Dre Dollas
I’ve got quite a few friends on Facebook. Most I know, some I don’t. Recently, I stumbled across a few gents who reside in the “don’t” category. But that’s not to say that I don’t want to stay apprised of their every update on the Book of Faces. With the addition of these bros, my social network continues to expand like Germany invading Poland (i.e., its expanding, but not necessarily in a good way). Yes, let me introduce you to my new pals, Yung Joose and Dre Dollas!
I’m not sure where Mr. Joose hails from, but he seems to have a large contingent of friends in LA and Hollywood, so I’ll assume he works in the music industry. With a name like Yung Joose, I like to pretend he’s a record producer or rap star, but I suppose selling bootleg mix tapes out of a backpack on Sunset is still a part of the music industry, no matter how small a part it may be.
You can also see that Joose has suffered some form of leg injury. I like to pretend its from an altercation that arose due to an offensive jest woven into one of his rhymes during a rap battle or even a scuffle with police…but I supposed he could have just tripped over one of the many items littering the floor in his crib. Be more careful Joose! At least Joose is a responsible social media user, he kept his profile pretty locked down to non-friends.
One of his Joose’s other buddies on his friends list caught my attention as well. I think they may be brothers, as they share the same name. Yung Skeez is obviously a fun loving gentlemen, and quite the ladies man! That’s not a bad looking jeep behind him either.
Next, meet my other new friend, Dre Dollas. Dre hails from Reno, NV, but he’s a lot more fun than anyone else in the crew.
Something you might not know about Mr. Dollas – he’s quite the successful business man. Although he hasn’t studied much, you can see that he held employment at STRAIGHT MONEY EMPIRE! Now, I have no idea what sort of company this, and even a quick googling didn’t shine any light on the topic, but I assume its some sort of stock or bond trading organization. I see nothing to make me believe that Mr. Dollas is anything other than a gainfully employed financial planner or investment banker.
Now that you know more about our new friends, lets look at the first hilarious interaction between Yung Joose and Dre Dollas. See, Dollas had recently acquired a new set of shoes. You can see from his profile above that these new shoes warranted some serious Facebook image real estate. We see these shoes from all angles, and I don’t blame him – they are a nice pair of Jordans! Lets take a deeper look into their conversation. Oh, and note the creative angle and display technique used for framing the shot.
The comments read as follows (I will do my best to provide an accurate translation as well)
