So what are we on today?


Manny Up

Today? The topic is Urban Prophets', or been profit? Monster Cody type urban prophet. Okay, no, no Monster Cody. He's not a urban prophet. He had insight


The Chillcmw

what do you mean Manny?


Manny Up

Yeah, he had insight on his story. These Urban Phrophets. Let's go with Spike Lee do the right thing. Talking about social justice before it was popular or re bringing it back from the 60s movement. We're talking about the late great, great, great john Singleton. Good I mean, john Singleton with higher learning and of course boys in the hood to rosewood was another one was very very very very insightful. And then of course you're gonna do some rows with me Haji Yeah.




The Chillcmw

He brought the fire Yeah. Got to do the right a she's got to have it..no that wasn't prophesying .


Manny Up

That was entertainment. Yes. We don't do do the right thing and we get on the bus and we don't do Junko fever. Okay, and for the hip hop guy we're gonna do Ice Cube fuck the police 1988 he was on it early. Very early. And everything he said still hasn't come true yet. It's still going on. Yeah, that's the hip hop profit that show is right. So that start with Spike Lee "Do The Right Thing" 1989


Montage One

only a heavy heavy heavy part of my growing up that's all he was. You know, I'm saying just there at every corner every curve made me go to Grambling what else man like Dude, just he was and he was on the Jays. I mean, yeah, he


The Chillcmw

made me say, he made me see how important Jordans was


Montage One

right he's definitely


The Chillcmw

about getting your Jordans scuffed up You mean yeah I don't have nothing to do me and how people be running a stores Yo man and really be wanting our business but not really filling this Yo man. You know shout out the radio right


Montage One

extra cheese is $2 nigga


Manny Up

every time it's $2 but like Chill said deep in our community extracting black dollars


The Chillcmw

but do they get recycled?? they're not feeling us they're not recycling they're not feeling because


Manny Up

we give them our money it goes to their community and it recycles and Little League


The Chillcmw

yeah schools yeah


Manny Up

recycles puts a lot of people to work and we don't get those dollars


The Chillcmw

you know I drive around and there's so many different towns you got Korea Town you got two towns you got this town. Where's our town?


Montage One

It's right here actually, is it here just to keep it 100% you know Lemert Park is actually our poor little Africa loci



The Chillcmw

you right you right but we need a city


Montage One

right? Way small.


The Chillcmw

We need a city This is great because we have a lot of great stuff going on around here. I see from time to time since back in the days right you'll mean but we need more


Montage One

and the only problem with the Liemert park is it's named after a white gentleman who actually and you can look this up. I had in his wheel not to ever sell any of this property to black people ever. So it's Yeah, it's really ironic. You know, spot and this is all something you guys on that camera there that camera there is all something you can research literally we are here we're in so folks a world famous. So folks shameless plug and this is all owned by you know


Manny Up

Others others. And and to step on and


The Chillcmw

say, needless to say, we need to buy it if we can, if we can't buy it, we need to find somewhere to buy something right?


Montage One

You're totally right. It's true. It's kind of like we got to uplift this whole community and take it somewhere else.


Manny Up

I did a little research when Nipsey passed. And you know, they wanted to name Crenshaw and slawson, one of the streets after Nick. I was like, Okay, and then so I was on the social media post where everybody, I think maybe the Times ran it. So when you're on a Facebook times post, everyone chimed in on the comments, so you really get a sense. And then we're going on and it was like, Well, why do Crenshaw is a store? So I was like, let me find out who Mr. Crenshaw is. So I looked a real estate developer.


Montage One

Hmm. He he


Manny Up

he actually was made as money I believe in Pasadena because that was the first Beverly Hills in Los Angeles . All the money in Los Angeles, started in Pasadena. Then later on, moved to this country town called Beverly Hills. Wow. Yeah. So Mr. Crenshaw, he made his money in railroads/Banking. And then he flipped it into real estate stayed in the states in Pasadena, I believe, and then you just start buying up stuff all up and down coin shop, huh. And you know, it was a lot of farming. And you know, it wasn't


The Chillcmw

like Compton, yo man, because it was a council owned by white folks before to Compton, cowboys owned by white folks. And white folks moved out Blackfeet people and brown people moved in Yes, why people don't want to buy property they're no more now the property is a million dollars for two bedroom with roaches and all of that yummy.


Montage One

They want to be close they want to be close to the city they gotta go to staples got la community is a it's a great proximity to business and yo Loki just to actually get more of an example of what we're talking about. We actually have a book here that's called images of America. leimert Park, written by Cynthia e EXIM. And Mary or Mati Guzzi Limerick, and maybe actually the person who is involved with this maybe she turned around and made a little better but this is actually about the whole black side of the community despite what we were talking about. And you might want to check it out. If you want to learn more about Lamar Park. Is it in the camera? Is it yeah, it says okay,


Manny Up

Leimert once we were growing up because I grew up it was a heavily African American middle class. That's what I remember with a lot of Asian Japanese descent. Japanese, a lot of my school teachers are teach I want to add this Mesa up to St. and a miss Sahkiguchi Oh, and taught at our elementary school for 45 years lived in America right around the corner from here, back and forth, wow. 40 years and taught us and taught my kids and taught whoever and they had a great great, great community. And once the kids got older, a little like us too. They all moved out and you know, but now the house is here again as a million dollar million dollar for a 2 bedroom, you can get to there.


Montage One

If you notice, there's a lot of Japanese design looking homes actually in the Leimert and the actual shrubbery Can I say that was planet that steel growing is like of like very Japanese descent. You know, sea wise so it's kind of crazy like Like I said, I dug into this book and it just like really like your face


The Chillcmw

still stands. What do we all right we need some churches. You know? Do do we own those?


Manny Up

Yeah,


Montage One

I saw is


Manny Up

Yeah, RIP I'm glad. Yep. segue. Reverend price. rest in peace, peace.


The Chillcmw

We need Leimert. We need Compton. We need Inglewood. We need Watts. But listen, not to change the subject. But


Montage One

when Reverend price passed, I swear to you Well, I saw a bunch of stories about how he like really, he really gave to the community bro. No,


Manny Up

no, he was he was real.


The Chillcmw

Y'all mean but then back in the days you had Japanese had the stores I'm assuming and I'm far from a racist racist but like I just said about you know, Spike Lee. We spend the money with them and and felonies.


Manny Up

Yeah. And it's a long history of that and it's in a lot to do with us. We don't we understand us, we understand us but we wasn't always taught that entrepreneurial, buy, keep and sale, even if it's not flossy, right you know if I have a laundry mat It's not flashy, but yet I'm raking in 200,000 and I'm my own boss right and that 200,000 in cash beats a hell of a $200,000 paycheck with payroll coming out, they control your taxes you get to control and write off your taxes if you raking in 200,000 from a laundry mat but wasn't taught the value and importance of something as small as that changing your life and your family


The Chillcmw

right time to educate ourselves with schools closed it's a great time to get off a tee these kids heads and they got the zooms and that's not education yummy regurgitating just a book and not really like a revelation to me so therefore your minutes a good time to teach the youth about our blackness right i mean because this keep 100 they already different than us anyway we will often the gang banging and selling dope and open up cell phone stores


Manny Up

yeah


The Chillcmw

that was okay, but kids these days can open up a medical facilty


Manny Up

can do whatever they want


Montage One

first they got to come out the house first though like they just online yeah new generation a online Oh no. They never had no nice scuff none of that shit. That's true. That's crazy, man. I

The Chillcmw

I had a


Manny Up

lady that lived in my neighborhood and once a year, she would do sherm. And she would get naked and run down the street. And so she was just a respectable lady, though when she didn't do that. Once a She went to work I think she went back in


The Chillcmw

Pam that stay across the street from my mama she exactly like Yeah, all every neighborhood church she could blow to she's singing church music. And then it seemed like every year around Christmas time she come darting out the house as Oh negative.

Shout out to the Pam's in the neighborhood for showing us. Yeah, right.


Montage One

flapping up and down the street.


Manny Up

Wow. all I got to say before we end this segment. "It was hot". It was hot. It was hot. All right, ....back to the topic. So get on the bus. Very very dope movie about the Million Man March, but it had a lot of side stories to make it interesting. Yeah, it was cool.


Montage One

It definitely wasn't on my radar is like something that I honestly bring up or remember it was cool. Well, yeah,


Manny Up

as far as a movie and the storylines. It was good, but it wasn't like nothing to write home. The thing to write home about that was he did it on the heels of the Million Man March.


Montage One

Right and it's


The Chillcmw

definitely educational. Yeah, but it wasn't doing the right thing.


Manny Up

No, no, it wasn't doing the right thing.


Big Dee

I don't think he wanted it to be the right thing.


Manny Up

I think nobody really was gonna put a great light on the Million Man March right. And he did his part as a black director right? he snuck a story in on top of the main set I guess


The Chillcmw

I'm more Malcolm because he was on it and Martin I'll be wanting to see some action. Actually action got a million black dudes marching man somebody's got to get marked no capture my attention.


Montage One

Well, like I said, I honestly you know, I know that it's a spike lee movie but it never really comes up in too many Spike Lee movie subjects.


Big Dee

Because it was like shot with one or two cameras. And he was about the journey to the Million Man March. The camaraderie of men on the bus right right. And their stories The Father Son the son one two bang right and the five is trying to get him out of the gay guy cry. The bus driver trying to keep everyone calm. Yeah, he was covering all the subjects for all the subjects of black men going to the march and then ended when they got off the bus at the march that's


Montage One

a lot of people don't know he did a movie that wasn't even like black based It was a about the soldiers in Germany.


The Chillcmw

I think I've seen that. I was afraid with the channel. Ah, yeah, I think


Manny Up

let me just give a quick shout out. It was October 16 1995. The Million Man March a day did I don't know if it was Baylor University or was I forgot what university but they did a comprehensive study to make sure how many people were there. And they got the news kind of reported 350,000 but the university was like let's let's not just guess because it sounds good. Let's do some actual research and they got to 860,000 about so I'm gonna say that's a million. And that was like crazy. Crazy.


Montage One

Yeah,


Montage One

So A is it about time for mother son record maybe? Yeah. Okay, let's let's break it out.


The Chillcmw

Mother son record.


Montage One

So again, shameless plug. Give me a drumroll D probably gone, but don't even worry about Where's my where's my camera? Give me that give me that too. Okay, actually we over here like this okay try not to get the glare but um we're gonna showcase this blue and XL below the heavens okay this is a phenomenal record it had a few features on it that even made it better but honestly I want to give it all up to blue because blue is like a tight artists if you don't know about this dude you really need to check from all the beats are slamming on here exiles the homie and this is available through mother son records was just downstairs in so folks who can be reached that mother son spell the sun with the EU records all together and again you might want to pick up this wax wax is actually available everywhere for a lot of different artists is back in and making all kinds of USB record players you know all of that so you don't have an excuse you can jump back in the past and just on an LP but if you do make sure you come to so folks and get it from mother and son of records



Montage One

just holding the record bro like it's something about especially a double LP bro that's the FE right there man so I think


The Chillcmw

my next project I'm I'm pressing up some wagon


Montage One

you got to bro Yeah, and they're doing cassettes even though the cassette players aren't coming back like yeah, a lot of people are putting especially in underground, they're doing 12 inches or double LPs and the cassette and then like a hoodie like that's how you sell


The Chillcmw

your margins that look like the cassette but I got the USB thing


Montage One

on someone we're doing that but actually a lot of them are actually dropping real cassettes but it's just like once you get the doubt that that's the thing you're gonna get the music anyway as it as a digital download. So it's just like some shit on the show. You know? That's true. Yeah. Okay,


Manny Up

Montage One

hella dope,


The Chillcmw

Busta Rhymes that was oh


Manny Up

yeah Omar Epps great great


Big Dee

shoot me shoot me shoot me


Manny Up

he was a piece of work but definitely adult movie definitely some hindsight with school shooting that


Montage One

happened 20 years later do just the energy that races energy which honestly as an LA dude I gotta just say like we really don't know what racism is when you plant it here like that and when I went to the south and I saw those colored only I mean whites yeah colored only signs on the on the little fucked up faucet that they wasn't taking down the rest and that they didn't have to take down but you didn't have to abide by exactly No, bro like that. That's some bow man. That's


Manny Up

all because we were the first generation one of the first generations in California. So the Great Migration happened around 1950 my parents came from the south Tennessee and Atlanta, Georgia. montage. Ohio, d d and Mississippi.


The Chillcmw

Memphis, Tennessee. Tennessee. .


Big Dee

Georgia, Texas, Louisiana. Exactly.


Manny Up

So we're one of the first generations born and raised in Cali, right with a silver spoon in our mouth. I


Montage One

don't know what it's like.


Manny Up

But my mom and dad, you know, my dad was from Atlanta. I'm the only Upshot here. Everybody else is in Atlanta, and his little town was on the other side of Forsyth County. So he had to sneak he said when he was a young boy and sneaked. Don't get caught in Forsyth County, bro. What I didn't get my boy. Look at him. Not even


Montage One

what I didn't tell you out in the parking lot today is why my dad went to the D. My dad went to the D because and my father was really old. Okay, I'm 52 so my dad came home one day and his sister my auntie said that this white man knocked her to the ground. I'm about to really set it all the way back at the general store. Okay, knocked to the ground at the general store. My dad went up there and beat the fuck out of dude. Just like in rosewood. The white clan showed up at the house with my grandmother and was like basically we hear the lencho son we ever see that nigga again. He's just because he just completely fucked some white dude in the store. And he had to go to the D or D


The Chillcmw

in my day you know, born and raised in Compton, but Compton schools wasn't giving a shit right so we then went to school in Gardena Paramount or in my case Long Beach like North Long Beach which is right next door so I had to walk from Compton to North Long Beach every day. On your way to Long Beach that's when you start meeting diverse people right Asians, Massey Cannes, Samoans and of course white people. So every Martin Luther King birthday you know you'd be walking in and just be some type of racist shit going on. But you know, we got in bankers you know, you know, like, like let them run out you know, I'm Sam but it's grown as white man's at the school with a dogs chasing us. They'll mean no one year we get them the next year they get us run us off your mind. So I guess that was my experience with California racist


Montage One

Yeah, it's mild as a text there but man when you sat sitting on side of road trying to fix a tire and a confederate flagged up truck robot be like fucking niggers?


Big Dee

Big Dee

Oh, yeah. I didn't get racism.


Manny Up

The middle class is always a little touch more racism.


The Chillcmw

I didn't I didn't experience using the N word. So I went to prison. Hmm. Demo focus and then they call you a nigger and dare you to do something straight up yummy. With swastikas in the head and all this crazy shit on them. You know I'm saying it. I'm just looking like, you know, really I slept next to a white guy and he told me say man, you're the first black dude. I really had a conversation with like a real conversation in California and California. in this prison since


Montage One

she's always separated, yeah, and I'm


The Chillcmw

just looking at him like, man, I'll jump off this rack and beat the shit out. I'm saying like, but somebody from Atlanta or down south somewhere will really beat the Dog Should I do I'm beating the dog shit out because just because you don't even know what the fuck you're talking about. But it didn't it don't feel good to me, right? I'm the first black guy.


Manny Up

I don't even know what that means. But I don't I don't feel good. So it's going down. Wow. Alrighty, so you got about a segment


The Chillcmw

shout out, man. I


Manny Up

know we always got that out. We always got that podcast of the week though. pagasa this man


Montage One

talking about it. This week, this week's flavors. And we're over here with it. And I know you remember this packaging? This gum was hella flavorful. Okay, podcast, okay. Okay. Hey, now he's joining in this, this desert. And this is kind of like, on some runts type level. Let me see if I can open the bag. You know, they got this new, you know, childproof shit. Okay,


The Chillcmw

like the packaging Montage.


Montage One

The packaging is dope, but you know what, the weed is better. Let me see if I can get this. Any Can I get that in there? Okay, this is actually nice and furry and white kind of reminds me of white runs, is actually definitely from the runs family. And this is from the homie Alex, ah, D. He doesn't have any particular IG to hit him up on because he doesn't want that. He's the streamer. He's the


The Chillcmw

dope, man. Exactly. But


Montage One

just know, check for that servers dog podcast of the week. I'm sorry, podcast of the week. And that's what happens when you get hot. All right, let's


Manny Up

go outside. All right, yes, urban profit that we're gonna talk about. There's plenty urban profits, but the less urban profit, we kind of source is ice cube. But the police Hello, done. 1988 is


The Chillcmw

just muscle. So I got a question. Yes, yes. Why are we just talking about Cube on the NWA record?


Manny Up

Well, it's Urban prophetes, and it's just a song.


The Chillcmw

Right? But on the song you had Rin and Dre, he. Okay,


Big Dee

let's talk about it. All right.


Montage One

are we talking about?


Manny Up

I suppose a song though. Okay. Because my man wrote the hook. I thought of the song. He did he


The Chillcmw

Yeah, he did. Yeah.


Montage One

Let me start with this. Chill, might ,He might hate me for this. But I was not fucking with NWA. Okay. Because, honestly, I started off listening to East Coast rap. So y'all did so. Okay. But they she was a little rinky dink ish, a bit before that. But the moment that they use that fucking break. Mm hmm. That just gave me the feel I needed. And it opened up my ears to really listen to what they were saying. I was like, I'm fucking with this. And of course, being black. I was like, Fuck the police, too. So that was my moment that inducted me into, you know, talking with NWA. That was the door,


The Chillcmw

you know, like your records. And this goes from the beginning of time, beginning of my time with Marvin Gaye record, when he's seeing a record like what's going on? You could tell that it's emotion in it. And he's really curious about what's going on are telling you what's going on that record fuck the police. You could tell that they was first of all in competition with each other. Right? Get what was going on at that time. Off the chest. That's it. So I know. Y'all mean shout out the gray. Yo, man, they you know, from what we what we all watched the movie. You know whether it happened like that. I mean, you know, back in those days, we used to really get fucked off with the police every time so they went in the studio based on how they felt and made a dope record that would never ever die you I'm saying like with all this Donald Trump shit was going on a few weeks ago. I was saying white people pulling up at the gas station bumped the fuck the police,


Montage One

right? Y'all mean and carried on into a whole other meaning?


The Chillcmw

Yeah, what is that? Exactly? You know, that's a whole nother generation you'll mean, you'll mean to age and culture, the mean? So, you know, be knowing the guys and who I'm saying and then seeing this record lasts so long. You could tell that you know that records is timeless and what they was going through at that time. Yo, man it was it was really the the storybook for our lifestyle so Yeah, fuck the police. They said shit that we didn't dare think about saying back then.


Manny Up

But thought about it and set it in your head. And yeah, and you know, even when you was younger, you knew the shit was wrong. How you was treated.


Big Dee

You knew


Manny Up

you were taught. Police is there to help you to serve you.


The Chillcmw

Used to pull up at the elementary Hey, y'all want to sit in the car? I was the dude like I fuck that car. Yeah, yeah, exactly. You go the floor. She said Like, never liked it a police car or a fire truck or anything in uniform I don't like to write unless it's a khaki suit


Montage One

because think about it they come to the hood as a fire person they put out a fire which is associated with some batshit EMTs they show up they take them no scissors cut your ass completely naked in the middle of the street and got shot up and then Popo come and serve you so like all them shits is kind of like negative like looking until you really started understanding the firemen he was like Okay, I'll give you your props


The Chillcmw

Do you see what you just said? holies come serve you and our culture serve you means what?


Montage One

naked is served protected breaking your neck and


The Chillcmw

naked is served as naked we got served boo boo he served


Montage One

now Yeah, exactly. You said it best sir. Protected breaking his neck. Hello. Yeah.


Manny Up

And you know, other other other other parts of the country are they get a service? Right? And that's the difference. You get service with some police officers. And it's a happy time your community asset we get served. You know what I'm saying? And you have a just a totally different feel.


The Chillcmw

You know, it's crazy. Because I know shout out to mom boy D in Atlanta. Yummy. Yummy. And I was out there. And I got a I got a couple of partners out there. So you know, in Atlanta, you know, the nightlife is dope, y'all mean and I'm riding the car with my homeboy high tea. He's from our here that went out there and made a life for himself. You know, with our state of mind y'all mean like this motherfucker riding around with an AK a full full nine millimeter in his car. Just because he can. Yummy and we came out here I'm riding around in the car with him and he got we were say 25 to life in a Trump. ak 47 Yeah, and we trying to get to Magic City. You mean? And he didn't know where we was going. So he pulls over on the side of the police. A brother young center say I'ma get the Magic City.



The Chillcmw

So the police was like don't trip Follow me. I said follow him with the cane the truck he's our metal polish. Don't be tripping like that out here man. We get to the club. I've jumped out the car I took the blunt my sleeve he like ama Kelly. I'm like yeah, he said man we ain't trippin like that. So that made me have a different judgment on cops. Yeah yummy like okay all these motherfuckers I fucked up this last leg yeah I'm saying that Nikki he was in a motherfucking making array Mota me cuz I paint a bit shit but I was like okay you know I'm saying he just got a job and that's coming from where we come from we just got accustomed to this fucking strike straight up you're saying like

He brought a lot of gangs together like, like VNG he was chillin with 60s, chillin with us. I don't know how I did it all and he ain't got no stories of getting super fucked up. He went to Crenshaw like and he never bank so it's like

That's why you got Coco meow. Right.


Manny Up

That's right on a sadder note. So me montage. Oh boy, Big D We are from a crew called the sick block. So sick block sick block massive ATF as well and ATF and so around 8887 going into 89 when 8990 when I came along, we were like a hip hop in love a hip hop crew don't ever was


Montage One

we were the first Wu Tang get it right.


Manny Up

Exactly. If it was scratching, graffiti, breakdancing skateboarding culture, the culture that's that's what brought us together 30-40 deep brought us together one of our and I'm gonna let montage go on but one of our founding members Yeah, founding members temper first. with Eric shilling Eric Schilling was just murdered two days ago Wow. walking down the street from the sick block from still going to the SIG block had a beer with one of our guys that lived on the sixth block no gangbang and no affiliation if you ran up on them and said something he was going to do that let you know civilian do right


Montage One

in bands. And you know he just shot apparently he had left my friend birch house at around 215 or so. Talking with one of our other homies Adams on Adam on the phone and he ended the call with him like maybe a couple of minutes later and he was actually found that 343 by the police but the shots fired call went out at around 228 so slipping he was just wandering that's crazy, bro,


The Chillcmw

it's so crazy man cuz I come from that and how it ended up being now. I can honestly say I'm ashamed to involve myself in that life. Y'all mean that lifestyle I get it I am for the simple fact that it's not what it started out to be. It's nowhere near what it was. And in this day and time with all this crazy shit going on. You got pandemic you know we we survived gunshots we survived prison we still I know what it sound like for bullets to pass my ears. You mean now I gotta, you know wash my hands, you know, not get coughed on and shit like that. You know, actually do some push ups so I don't have diabetes and shit like that. Or artery clog that shit like that. So you would think that it would evolve on a on a higher note for this. You know, people are gang members, you know, I'm saying saying you know what? I'm gonna kill nobody unless he deserves to be tripped on Right,


Manny Up

exactly.


The Chillcmw

I mean, you know, because we come from the drop by shooter days. Yeah, y'all mean pull up bus. Keep going, y'all. I mean, it was stupid. Y'all mean but And it should evolve from that like man if you got a problem you're gonna isolate a problem with this person go get your man you I'm saying don't just be just trying to put in work and get stripes on some cat that you've never seen right they're


Montage One

never seen


The Chillcmw

because this guy might not be a banker or this guy might not be a strikes from this person's neighborhood or whatever it's really stupid You're mean so it makes a person like myself that was a firm line push back in the day it makes me ashamed to be have been a part of your mean like


Montage One

it makes me feel lucky because a lot of the shit that I did like wearing all red going through hard time mall and shit like that like bro I look back on I'm like first of all I want to I want to tell you now I don't want no credit for it because I was kind of just dumb like I didn't think about the shit I was doing was you know ain't


The Chillcmw

our fault we just product of our environment right either you was gonna be from it or you was gonna be to do get chased Yeah exactly. I mean yummy I'm gonna get out with the get out yummy. But you know these days Heidi is you know, you have to put in some work with a cat man and the same cat to be on the stand Tylenol.


Montage One

My first introduction to getting banged on was at century Park shout out to Jake shout out to cube and shout out to Doug see who went to Central Park Elementary. My first introduction to getting banged on I'm walking home this is around sixth grade so now you starting to know kind of what's going on. I'm walking home you know the avenues across the street and Central Park I'm not known as La whatever and I'm being followed by the script bully dude and he's like pushing me and doing all this shit and like crowds gathering falling This is perfect after school shit. And all of a sudden somebody out of nowhere was like a start on the GAO right? I didn't know what the fuck that meant. Right? So I turned around


The Chillcmw

I said no nigga Don't stop me out. Don't call me out. Don't stop me out right these days. Oh, he didn't even


Montage One

know what the fuck I was saying bro. But I left that nigga scratching his head cuz he was tripping. First I looked like I was scared and then I turn around like nah Don't stop me. Don't stop me up. And then he just kind of scratched his head and he was like whatever cause blah blah. And then I knew I was like oh shit off on the other side.


The Chillcmw

Right yeah, I


Montage One

got I got lucky and got away with I didn't even know I went home somebody told me later. I told them they could have fucked me up


The Chillcmw

so you know like I was saying that you know it's shameful of it. But I'm glad I know about it. Yummy. what it is today is nowhere near what it was for us montage your mean is different you know me and and I understand that it's different. So it makes me ashamed to be a part of it in the sense of I burped what's going on right now right we birth what's going on right now I'm saying like these dudes really like it's fair to tell it's fair to shoot innocent people it's fair to you know just walk around here and a dress right Yo man just put shit up my nose or whatever the hell y'all mean right to each his own do what you do but it's like come on me if you under this cloth it's like come on dog follow the rules right you know i'm saying is protected is like what the police posts have been doing protecting and serving your area right not going over here doing a bunch of fuck shit you I'm standing down when the chick get caught he did it he did it like your dog you got no nose PC up and do keepin it real on the main line
