Somewhere in Jamaica avenue. The projects. I don’t remember
This that bow tie argyle sweater house nigger ether gob has been perfecting
I’m South Jamaica to the core, I got periodical take a walk through the projects to remind myself how far I’ve come.
I know MANY who didn’t make it. With that said some may see my life as a failure but I’m just now showering the sludge from ghetto storm drains off my soul.
If I’m comparing myself to dudes with two parent upbringing in the safe outskirts of black communities and a fair shot at a future…then those aspects I accomplished FAR GREATER life missions than they ever could.
That line Avon threw at Stringer kinda stung… “When I look at you I see a man without a country”.
…Many dudes don’t understand Stringer’s life is a reality for MANY.
Guess that’s why I’m always ranting about black progress..so I won’t feel so alone out here.
