I was in the city and a bunch of niggas was using the scaffold as a pull up bar, my son who’s a fan of wrestling asked me if they stronger than me… I had no choice but to get some money on the bars with them. Im my sons superhero, couldnt of went down no other way.
This nigga I grew up with respected me cause I was from New York and my first week moving on my block I beat up every bully that laughed at my accent. Fast forward to 2005+ mad niggas been killed, Fed time, police shootouts. And my nigga is a beast, beat 9 bodies, own a whole block of houses in the hood cleaning up his money. There’s this old guy come home from prison we celebrating, bitches, money, club locked down. We in the back counting money and the OG walk in. I’m like what’s poppin’ killa? He’s like let me get $20. So I give it to him. The nigga i grew up with he’s like 6-7 years older than me barked on me about giving the old man $20 TWICE.
The old man comes in, my dude like “this my pops, Casket”. Yelled out his OG name that rang bell in the hood. I just met a street legend, ice cold nigga. Dude barked on me cause the drugs did his pops in, and his moms…even though he hated drugs he was good at what he does.
This wwas around the time I started backing away from the streets … I asked dude why is he still out here.
“It’s all I know, gotta hold shit down for big dog (his pops)”
…You can look in the OG eyes and tell he knew NONE of that shit meant nothing but pride wouldn’t let him admit that, even at the risk of his son following in his footstep.
Foolish pride <<<<<>>>>
My son gave me a father’s day card it read “Thanks for being that dad that buys me whatever I want for holidays, takes me places and teaching me things”
…I could be in prison right now if I let every weak nigga with something to prove TO ME move me to do something stupid to prove I ALREADY know he is who he say he is …
Before Fast & Furious came out, there were illegal street races down here in this industrial area where nobody was at at nighttime…I rolled with a friend a few times. You would hit a strip of the highway and there would be hundreds of suped up little race cars just circling around until the coast was clear,…then they’d exit and hit the strip and cats would come out and just start the drag races one by one. Shit was mayhem, no lie there were hundreds of cars there just waiting to stunt.
niggas be killin niggas beating 9 bodies log on to type about it yet when they get besides themselves from getting ether’d for lookin like a orange glow stick they buying bus tickets to shoot the fair one with SN?
