YK Osiris is known for doling out life advice. Recently, the 2019 XXL Freshman told a 21-year-old man who was selling candy to get a job.
On Saturday (June 25), Instagram account @Trapanese Films posted a video of YK Osiris outside of a club in Los Angeles when a man approached him selling candy. The Def Jam artist asked him, “Why don’t you got no job,” to which the young man answered, “Because I’m a hustler.”
When YK asked the candy seller how old he was, and he replied, “21.”
“You’re 21 and you are selling candy? That’s a shame, man,” YK said in disgust.
“Well, shit, give me a job then, since you’re talking like that,” the young man responded, adding that he likes boxing and rapping.
“You got to get a job, though,” YK scoffed. “Get you a job.”

Another person tweeted, “yk osiris telling a man selling candy 2 get a job while consecutively being in debt is why we go backwards as a nation.”
