Hereditary, all of my cousins
Dying of thirst, dying of thirst, dying of thirst
Since people are often stuck in the ghetto from a lack of opportunity, it might as well be hereditary for them to suffer from the same thing. Generation after generation has to go through the same struggle of living in such a bad environment. Crips also usually refer to each other as “cuz,” who are a more full-fledged product of a violent setting.
