It wasn’t Bloods or Crips we had hoods, it was about what side of town you lived on and in i was knee deep into that life style, I loved it, but karma has a way of waking you up to your wrong doing. “Some would think it was from bad parenting that was simply not the case, my parents did their best to keep me out of the street life but it just kept calling my name.”
