Has anyone ever told you...
From time to time folks will stop me and tell me that I look like someone. They'll throw out the name of a person who's in the public spotlight. More often than not, they'll usually just tell me that I resemble a cousin, the brother of a close friend, an ex classmate, their barber or maybe some guy met one day in the past. I sat down and came up with the names that I tend to hear the most. By most I mean at least 10 times in my life. Now of course, I don't think that I look like any of these men. However I suppose that if such a high number of people have mentioned the same names, I'd have some fun. I'm going to take a moment to seek the opinion of those who read this blog as to who they think I most resemble. For starters, I've included a pic collage of myself in a variety of different shots. Then I've listed the people that I'm most compared to along with their pics. All of the pics below are small versions and can be enlarged with the just the click of the mouse.
The four men listed below are the ones which I'm compared to the most.
#1 - NBA Coach Byron Scott
#2 - Actor Duane Martin
#3 - Rap Artist Doug E. Fresh
#4 - Rap Artist AZ
Now the men shown below are the ones that one or two people mentioned and compared me to. All of these really made me scratch my head. I figured that I'd include them just to show just how blind some folks can be. I don't look remotely close to any of these cats. In fact, I felt insulted when someone told me that I looked like KRS-ONE. My nose might be a lil' bit big, but not drive a tractor trailer through big!!!
#1 - Rap Artist KRS-ONE
#2 - Clothing Designer Carl Williams (aka Karl Kani)
#3 - R&B Artist Keith Sweat
#4 - NBA player Derek Fisher
oh yeah... why not add add a lot more humor to this whole post???
I found an old pic that I took back when I was rockin' an S-Curl back in the late 80's and put it next to an old pic of Doug E. Fresh from the mid 80's when he was with the Get Fresh Crew. Directly underneath those pics that is an actual photo (although blurry) that I took with Doug at a Def Jam party back in NYC in '96. Even that night a lot of folks were asking me (and him) if we were related..... lol.
That's it folks.
What celebrity or well known person do folks compare you to or always tend to say that you look like? Not everyone you're compared to makes you smile. Some folks mentioned might make you want to cuss someone out the minute the say you look like that individual. Go ahead and give the good ones and the bad ones alike.
