There's just a boy in the hood, his pockets full of lint, mind fully stocked up on curiosity, and ignorance-no more room for innocence. Momma Correta told him to stay in school, education is free. At the liquor sto' there's Hennessy on the top shelf, a pistol at the side of the building, and "free" money behind the register on the tall counter. One option is within his reach. The boy thinks that pulling a trigger isn't difficult, besides, there are lost boys in Sudan his age and they do it all the time with AK-47s. Earthgang's video lets it be known that at the liquor store you must be 21 and up to get a '40 oz', but any one can get a bullet, no matter the price.
