14Me and my favorite person, @LiLiDee last night, which also happened to be my birthday!


15If you had 1 million dollars, what would you buy? Me? I’d buy this girl everything she asks for IMMEDIATELY. Because friends don’t come as wonderful and as loving as @Li123455 anymore.


Instagram captions for friends who you couldn’t live without


16To ten years of knowing each other’s full names, ten years of fighting roadblocks together, ten years of group phone calls on Thanksgiving. Hey, @Barb and @Andy, here’s to ten years of true friendship.

17Have you ever had a friend that makes you feel better about yourself every day? That’s @FerestaLA for me. Best person I’ve ever met.


18This guy, @YummYumm has been there for me, through thick and thin, through summer and all manner of storms. #Friends4Eva


19Lemme introduce my two best friends, my two ride-or-die gals, @LaShondaT and @LaGraBa, who’ve been here for me through the worst. Every day I just thank God for putting these people in my life.

20I never knew what #truefriendship meant until I met this guy, @grabby early last year. Now I know that true friendship is a lot of work. 😊😊😊


21Me at the Savoy last night with the mighty trio, @QuavenzhaneQ, @HarryStyleFan, and @YoYoMa. I didn’t know true friendship still existed until these 3 happened. #LotsofLove


22There is fame, there is money, booze, women, cars, even the dopest mansions in this world. And then, there is the #truefriendship I have with these guys.



23Many times, when everyone else was too busy, when no one wanted me around, Frank Jones @OilyDoily was always there. I know what #RealFriendship means.


24I know how the joke goes, but if I was asked to choose between this guy, @LamaRR, and my life, I’d choose this guy. Because he’d do the same for me.

25You can never know the importance of friends in your life until your family, your workmates, and the world itself want nothing to do with you. So, I am forever thankful to @LiBelI and @ArthurMillerBiggestFan for showing me #WhatFriendsAreFor.


26Today marks the 2nd anniversary of our becoming friends, me and @JaniceDobson. Dear Janice, I am so thankful for your friendship.


27About last weekend at the #Hive with the best friends I could ever have, Trina and Lance. Drinks or dance – it’s not enjoyable w’out you guys. Need U – Always.

28Hey, @LilBoo, this is me appreciating your friendship all these years. Your love, your energy, your generosity, that’s more than I deserve.


29These guys, @Huynes, @JILLHArworth and @BilboLlama. They gave me the ideas to make me what I am. You jus’ need them day ‘n night. #FriendsEver


30That’s my dawg, @BillBooBoo and today’s his birthday y’all. This guy deserves all the best cuz he’s my best friend who completes my life all round, period.



31I haven’t seen these guys in 2 years, but we talk every weekend. They’re the definition of true friends, through and through.


32I saw Arthur, my dog, lying half-dead in a ditch. Now, he’s my bestie, and I am not sure if I can go on walks without him or eat without him. #IamALuckyMan


33Give me #diamonds, give me #gold, and I’ll choose these #PricelessFriends anytime. Simply because they inspire me to #Be.

34Come to #PoetryNight every Thursday at Café Bleu and you’ll find these four guys, every month, every year. You guys rock my world. Best #friends in this lifetime.


35Me and my very best friends, @Book and @Bake out for a walk. Naturally, @Book isn’t thriving outdoors. Life is so good when I walk and talk with them.
