The G Manifesto Tip: Checklist for a Night Out

“I’m the mild, money gettin style, rollin foul
The versatile, honey stickin wild, golden child”- Nas

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of eating a late lunch at Stage Deli in Mid-Town, New York City, with one of my childhood friends who shall remain nameless. Tucked away in a corner, we reminisced about our childhoods, and what shaped us into the G’s we are today. My friend, however, has chosen what most would consider to be an unconventional line of work. He is in the “human disposal” business. We have never judged each other and I still don’t judge him. He was just a natural and is in the business strictly for the money. He is very successful, although young, he has a great client list, travels tons, a big bank roll, a closet full of Italian suits, plenty of time off, rolls with models, and has some Excellent Cadavers to his credit.

I asked him what he credits his success to. Among other things, he told me he never does any work without meticulous planning, the right tools, and a checklist to make sure he has everything before going on a “job”. For him, (depending on the particulars of a job) he usually brings:

AR-7 Rifle (because it breaks down easily)
3-6 Powered Scope (for long range shots)
Two Extra 15 or 30 Shot Rifle Clips (precautionary)
22 Ruger Mark I pistol (silencers attach well, seldom jams, and can be broken down easily, It is very meditative to take it apart with your eyes closed, my friend tells me)
Hollow Point Bullets (among other things, they are harder to trace)
Extra Pistol Clip
Shoulder Holster (for style points and functionality)
Disposable Pistol Silencer (no explanation necessary)
Disposable Rifle Silencer (no explanation necessary)
Double Edged Knife with Six-Inch Blade (many uses)
Disposable Rubber or Surgical Gloves (no fingerprints)
Ski Mask or Stocking Mask (ski masks are better for vision, stocking masks sometimes can help get “the jump” on someone because of the odd appearance.
Lock picks (to open locks …Skippy)
Mini-crow bar
Dark inconspicuous clothing

My friend says he always knows exactly what he is going to bring and double checks to make sure he has everything. He makes a mental “checklist”, so he never gets caught slipping. For him, the stakes are extremely high. I mean, imagine if you forget the silencer?

This made me think about how a G also needs a checklist for the equipment he needs for a night out. There are many parallels between what a Hitman needs and what a G needs to make a “Hit” on a night out as well. Here is what I recommend for a night out…..:

Identification (don’t leave this at home. You don’t want an overzealous bouncer stymieing your night, because some underage drinkers were in the spot the week before. I usually bring three or four sets of phony ID’s on a night out as well. This helps you maintain a lower profile at some night spots, and also helps with girls you meet who only know you by an alias. As a side note, I also like to keep at least 3 different passports on me at all times, currently I have a US, Irish, and British. Believe me, its well worth it.)

CASH (really goes with out saying. Credit Cards are for chumps and working stiffs. However, phony credit cards are good . The particular night at hand will determine how much scratch to bring. I really never like to leave the crib with less than a G, no pun intended. Get a nice money clip as well. Something with an emerald or a ruby on it always works….)

Smokes (Bring two packs minimum. If you have been going out for as long as I have, you will always run into people who think they “know” you and think they have the right to ask you for a smoke. You never really know if you will need to use that person in the future, so it’s better not to turn them down. What you don’t want to happen is the girl of your dreams to walk up to you at the end of the night and ask you for a smoke and you don’t have any…..Bring two packs….)

Gum or mints (With all the smoking and the Shrimp Scampi you ate earlier that night you don’t want to leave anything to chance. It’s good to keep these for girls too.)

Keys (Don’t forget these. There is nothing worse than rolling back to your crib with the girl of your dreams and your locked out of your own crib. Scaling the walls in a $3500.00 Brioni suit is never a pretty sight. Well, I guess it could be worse, you might have to scale a wall without a Brioni suit….)

Cell phone (for those of us out there who were G’s in the pre-cell phone era this is not life or death. For the younger ones out there this is very important. And, truth be told, it does make life easier, especially for on the fly moves. A back up cell phone or battery is not a bad idea if you are going out after a long day at the Race Track for instance….)

Pen (Make sure it works well. Sometimes you only have a few moments before a girls boyfriend comes back, and you don’t want to wait for that slow as molasses bartender to give you one, and the attitude he will give you because he thinks you wont give it back…..News just in, bartender guy….you wont get the pen back….)

Phone Book (this can be a folded up piece of paper with key #’s on it, ie girls you might want to meet on the fly, restaurant owners #’s, club owner’s #’s, etc. just in case your cell phone breaks or you lose it. A precautionary measure. Much like bringing an extra clip.)

Condoms (Some guys think that it is a “jinx” to bring them out. Well, News just in, I bring them out every night, and I am never “jinxed”. What would you rather do when you are in a limo headed over to her crib, stop at a gas station an hope that they have some? This piece of advice could save your life…..)

Zippos (Very important. Always bring two. You want every smoke you light up for yourself or a beautiful girl to be done with absolute, and I mean absolute style…..Is there any other purpose to life? Think about meeting the girl of your dreams and lighting her cigarette with a $1.99 lighter from 7-11? Doesn’t seem to work, right? You want two Zippos, because Zippos‘ flints break at times and you don’t want to jeopardize your style. Dunhill lighters can work as well (especially if you’re an East End London G) and strike anywhere matches can be used with style as well. But push comes to shove; the Zippo is your best bet….)

Obviously, with all these “tools” you need plenty of pockets. Hence the need for the custom made Brioni suits. Never leave home with out the tools of the trade. Think about a night out like a Hitman and you will have plenty of successful “Hits” in your career. The Rest is Up To You……………………….

Email of the week in regards to The G Manifesto Tip—Fight Night:

“7-8-9-10……….I have been TKO’d once again by the brilliance of “The Count of Monte Fisto’. This half man, half genius not only slept with my wife multiple times but he is creating a legacy of his own with air tight tips to securing entry to the most sought after sporting events of our time, Professional Boxing. I will study these tips closely like a Gaslamp Dweller studies which striped shirt he is going to wear to Sidebar. It may take time but with you as a guide I know I will be with De La Hoya when I follow him into the ring for his comeback fight in Vegas!!!! Cheers to you Bonecrusher!!!!”

Thanks…very enthusiastic…. “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm”- Ralph Waldo Emerson …..MPM

    I checked out your site and I propelled into a perpetual state of shock and awe. Fascinating, informative and with genuine depth. Most blogs are either pointless, emo, or disturbing. You have bucked this trend.

    We could meet up if I ever make it to America. After all, the American life is one big movie, and if you’re not enjoying it, you are a terrible actor.

    I like wearing brioni suit, zegna suit, kiton suit, and canali suit. Brioni Suits are the best for biz.

    2 packs of smokes
    3 passports
    2 lighters

    what the fuck are going to the club or backpacking across fucking europe.
    good luck with those 2 packs of smokes in your (i’m assuming bespoke, since obviously your so fucking amazing at everything) suit pockets. it will just make you look lumpy

    Why so many haters? In New York there is a lot of hit men its not that uncommon to know one. He has obviously been through a lot of shit which is why he chooses to be prepared when going out. G’s always carry passports in case they gotta bounce quick. One question G… no weapons? or is that what the pen is for
