I went along with that thing of yours about getting out cause I had nothing else. When I get out what am I gunna do? I don’t know nothing else but dope, baby. Takin’ it, sellin’ it, bankrollin’ so other small time pusher. Ya know, you’ve got this fantasy in your head about gettin outta the life and setting that other world on its ear. What the F*CK are you gunna do except hustle? Besides pimpin’? And you really ain’t got the stomach for that. Now man I ain’t puttin you down. If it wasn’t for you I probably wouldn’t be here, I’d be O.D’ed some place. I’m just trying to make it real, baby like it is. I mean, maybe this is what you’re supposed to do, maybe this is what you’re growing to. Just think about it, don’t throw it out, just, just think about it.
