around my way
I am from basement and studio apartments.
A place where friends and family are welcome.
I am from respect all,.. except those who
disrespect. From play fights with friends and family;
to new york 1 and obituary's.
Where drugs run the streets all the way to kings of
the block.Where houses and cars get broken into
when daddy and mommy is never home, Where brothers
and sisters had no one but each other.
I am from a time where older brothers are in jail
and older sisters constantly gone. From way back
when three o'clock fights was a must...(never in class)
and when you got home with a fight lost your siblings
would beet that ass.
From a place where every one knows everyone
where Spanish and soul food mixed. When bricks
where thrown at windows. And groups of twenty sat
waiting for kids to get out of schools.
From a time when shows like lam chop and the big comfy
couch was the best thing on t.v. when biggy and tupacs
feud ran the streets. Where LL's grand ma lived 5 blocks from
