Thug Life and Jail
Goin to jail first of all made me humble.
Not cuz niggas was scarin' me, people took that Vibe
interview wrong. I was not in no danger it wasn't like
niggas was screamin' I'm gonna kill ya, I was walkin'
around in 200 dollar sweat suits in Rikers Island ya
know what I mean, livin'! Niggas was given me love,
sending me shit, Latin Kings giving me shit. Everybody
was giving me shit they was like " you representin'
we got love for you" It was love. It was out of that
love that I was like yo thug life is dead. I was like
while I'm in jail thug life is going to jail with me.
Cuz nobody has the power, nobody is like me to be able
to represent this while I'm locked down. I felt I was
goin' away for years! I couldn't let nobody represent
it. And I would see how many soldiers I had by comin'
to jail. I was like oh no I got to stop this. I gotta
re-think this cuz I didn't plan Thug Life. I just said
it, it was how I felt. I said it and I lived it. Now
I gotta take my life, see what I live and represent
and dictate wha t this means, and then let niggas be
a part of it. Thats why I killed it, I murdered it and
choked it, all them niggas that was rappin I murdered
and choked they careers as far as being with me cuz
if it was a Thugs life shit would have happend differently.
I wouldn't have gotten shot like that. So this Thug
Life got destroyed. And then I came out with my shit.
And even then I had niggas on my team that I shouldn't
have had on my team. I should have started all new in
the game. That's why everybody who was on my team has
made it. Niggas in jail was talkin' like they was so
surprised that I was in jail and not knowin' that everybody
goes to jail its just like the same shit that makes
you wanna buy my shit is the same shit that put you
in jail. I understand what they was sayin. They was
in the dope game and they was taken every chance they
could get and I'm in the rap game and I'm not taken
the chances that I need to. I'm just acting like I can
come back tommorrow and thats what I thought. I thought
that because I was raw and that I knew I had talent
in my heart, I never thought I was the best rapper or
the best nothing. I believe that I was the realist nigga
out there. I think I own that. I think being real is
just being true. I'm the nigga that will be wearing
a suit when all the other niggas is wearing khakis.
I'll be bald headed when everybody is wearing braids.
I'll wear braids when everybody is bald headed. It's
like I'm just being real. I don't have no insecurities.
I take my insecurities and show everyone. I tell em'
about my mo m about my life me being little, I make
it harder. Whatever happens happens and thats why I'm
chasing these niggas hard. This nigga Biggie is 3 times
bigger than me and everbodys sympathyzing with him.
They acting like I'm bulleying him. This guys 3 times
bigger than me and I'm asking this nigga to fight.
