It's about people lowering themselves. Nobody tells you to sell dope, pull a trigger, go to prison...those are choices we make. There are a hundred other things positive to do with your life, but all that gets glamorized is gangsta shit. 2 seconds of fleeting fame, ghetto celebrity. If that's all you know, growing up in the hood, where the people at that can show us better? Instead, we think those people are sellouts. Who the real sell outs? The fool selling your sister some crack? Or the fool getting his paper from white folks, and spending it back in the community?
Prison politics can be blamed only so much, outside you have a choice. Dudes doing all day do not have anything else better to do but add to their company. I hate it when cats try to glamorize shit and give up a false sense of "glamour" to this lifestyle. Point blank, there is nothing good about it.
And like I said...if people are having money, they won't be annoyed with each other, nobody would care. Look at the riots, everyone had money, looted things...nobody was beefing.
