The Definition Of A Ride or Die Chick, Where are our Ride or Die Men???????

8 Jan


The ultimate woman for any man is the mythical Ride-or-Die chick. The concept itself is one of selflessness that borders on insanity when you observe the women with whom this term was coined for. Originally a Ride-or-Die girl is the one who would hold your gun, hide the crack in her… crack and mule the cocaine overseas so that you both could be paid. The Ride-or-Die chick would get upset when you slept around but she would never leave, she would stick to Omerta and do 25 to Life in prison before allowing you to be taken by the authorities. She would have your babies, feed you and coddle you without the need for thanks because her love was unconditional. Yes there have been many women of this ideal and to outsiders it is a mentality that is seldom understood.

Benefits to being a Ride-or-Die chick?

A man knows when his woman has his back and loves him unconditionally. He may be a flawed, imperfect, scumbag but he loves her beyond any other woman that will ever be in his life. He loves her deeply because he knows that no matter how much the world is against him she will be there by his side. While he may not show it, it forces him to have a strong loyalty for her that goes beyond fidelity, it is a soul bond.

When Tupac sung about this mythical woman back in his days of influence, every hood chick dreamed of being that jewel in her man’s eyes. Many still do it and take drug charges, get knocked up and live with the STD’s that the hood in their life brings home. Ride-or-Die is the ultimate construct of unconditional love, it is what marriages on paper are meant to be but as statistics show – not the same. In certain cultures and religions where divorce is unheard of or lethal for the woman, being Ride-or-Die is forced. In our western culture especially within the bourgeoisie, it is unheard of. One cannot imagine the high-powered wife of the CEO in some Fortune 500 company taking the bullet for her husband when it comes time for a prison sentence. No it rarely happens and this is why it seems that the concept of Ride-or-Die is one of a low income, hood mentality.

The Professional Ride-or-Die Chick

There are many ways that a woman of a law-abiding citizen can be construed as Ride-or-Die, in reality many are but the term is never used for them. These women allow their men to leave high paying jobs to pursue their dreams without risk of leaving, they allow for mistresses to come and go without risk of leaving and they will cut the balls off of anyone who crosses their men. Thugs or Professionals all have the same woman with the same mentality when it comes to being Ride-or Die, the definition is “unconditional love”. It is the same love many of us have for our parents and siblings, you don’t disown them, you forgive them, love them, and defend them. They may be assholes but they are your assholes and you would rather put yourself in harm’s way than see anything happen to them. That is the Ride-or-Die mentality.

    Maybe the mentality of the ride or die chick is foolish to the world at large and in some instances, the ride and live understanding is left on the nightstand after a good lay as though unless it’s bought and paid for it’s not worth the conversation to agree to the worth of it before the price. Ride and Live being the type of unconditional love that does not begin in selfish intention. When the other person from both members is that person. And the love that is shares is also ride, die ad believe eternally… that’s the love that starts at self and is beyond true depiction for it was so bomb the other planned that hustle, that sacrifice to benefit the partner they love so much. Yet I have in a place to suggest to myself to be this version of a woman strong.. so strong to be the joke on the lips of my peers, the hand interlocked with his in the face of his “out with the boys last night just a something on the side chick each day. Yet i don’r take away the power of love… and truthfully without jail time I could ride, and I would die with ove
