“I’m so confused, lost, hurt I lost a brother, best friend, a mentor all I can here you saying now is If it was me, I would tell you, “Ni**a, live your life and grow” I’d tell you, “Finish what we started, reach them heights, you know? And gas the V-12 to the pipe and smoke” but it sounds way easier then done … I got the Babies and L forever I’m done with all this Sh** I retire from being a bodyguard I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT.”
