My mother's on crack
My sister can't work cause her arms show tracks
While Ice-T’s mother is addicted to crack cocaine, his sister is addicted to heroin. Starting as powder similar to cocaine, heroin is then cooked into a liquid before being injected into the arm via syringe. Ice-T’s sister shoots up so much that there are marks, or “tracks”, all over her arm. The marks deter anyone from hiring her, as no one wants to employ a drug user.
