Butter Team Weekend Beats Vol. 26

Hey ballers. Welcome back to the WB series - today's theme is "wild style pirate radio beats for you and your crew." It's time to grab some cardboard and share your skills with the world!

If you don't have your own crew yet, or you'd rather start a new crew that dresses better, start by checking around with the neighbors. Everyone can bring their own technique to the group showdown, so don't overlook the Grandmas or older folk (but you will need to confirm that they don't already rep another crew). They may be more likely to join if you have a fresh handle, so use this crew name generator to get started.

Next up - clothing. All you need to get nice is $20, a JC Penney, and a pair of scissors. This is a great opportunity to explore your personal style! Try to avoid strict "crew color themes" because it's important that everyone have an opportunity to express themselves differently (you might look good in perriwinkle, but other people might look kind of douchey.)

A few more questions to consider: What kind of weapons do you have around the house that might fit in your sweatpants? Do you have a backup meeting area in case the spot gets hot? Maybe figure that out in advance - the best retreat spots serve iced nonalcoholic beverages (maybe Tasti D-Lite? But what's really embarrassing is if the other crew chose that spot too, because one of their crew members goes by that name.)
