Hope you don't think users are the only abusers
Niggas getting high within the game
And its not just the material spoils that keep you going: You start getting addicted to the trill of it, the adrenaline rush of going to see your connect in a small building in Harlem in a lobby that you’ve never been in, where you go in with a bag of money and come out with a bag of work. Or the feeling when you come around the corner back home and all eyes turn to you because everyone knows who you are — you represent something successful and free and dangerous, all at once. You have the best car, the best jewelry, the whole package. You taste a strange kind of fame. It’s as addictive as the shit you’re selling, and just as deadly.” (Carter 2010, p31)
Wordplay on high. Referring to the feeling of intoxication and moving up the ladder.
