Tunde Adebimpe is so unbelievably charming in pretty much all of his endeavors, and the latest installment of Rookie Magazine’s video column “Ask A Grown Man” is no exception. The TV On The Radio frontman fields questions about relationships and gives his “grown man” advice to teenage girls a-la Dear Abby. Adebimpe’s advice is nothing novel, but he does have a few moments of sage-like relationship wisdom. His best advice goes out to Jennifer from Minneapolis, who received a mixtape from a friend who she suspects is secretly in love with her. Adebimpe responds, “Well… if he actually made you a cassette tape, and played songs and recorded them onto a physical cassette tape, then he is absolutely and completely in love with you. Because who does that?” So next time you’re courting a significant other, don’t half-ass it with a CD, okay? Watch below.
