Follow me and see just how much a man can stand

Gangsta Gibbs grew up in a tough, violent neighborhood and lived in poverty and eventually sold drugs and committed crimes to stay afloat. He invites the listener to take a walk in his shoes through the same dangerous environment and discover how long it takes for them to reach that breaking point when resorting to a life of crime becomes the solution to finding their way out of the ghetto.
