WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
A lot is popping off I can't speak on yet
One of the 1st times I kicked it with my sis Diamond we smoked and she put on this documentary we watched. This line from it stayed with me and always reminds me of her and how much I live for her - "It ain't easy, man. It might look glamour-like to ya, cuz ya see me riiiidin'...ya dig? Snakeskin down to tha flo', ya dig? Hat and shoes to match. Diamonds on fingers and watches on arms...It might look easy, but ya gon' hafta work some to get to this status...see ya at the top." - American Pimp (1999)
