The J-man spent what little he had of his midlife speaking truth to power and keeping on his grind up until the last days. Here, Lupe exhorts those who talk conscious in their youth to keep talking conscious later in life.
Jesus called himself “the way, the truth and the life (see John 14:6); hence "you’re life like Christ”.
