Anybody tht really knew me n my pops relationship knows tht he was really my bestfriend n my roll dawg, he taught me literally everything i know. He kept me with him everywhere he went. He showed me the good and bad he made sure i knew how to handle any and every situation. He made sure i knew everything i needed to know about the streets and my books so nobody could cross me or play me. Every bit of knowledge he had he gave to me. The man i am today is bc of you pops, ts hurt me frfr pops we was just in the gym lastnight working out having a good time.
