I grew up wishing my life would be like the Cosbys
I go that extra mile to escape this ghetto monotony
Freddie’s dream as a kid was to grow up like the Cosby kids, in the sense that they lived in a great home in a nice neighborhood and both parents made good money. He would go the extra mile to escape the harsh reality of his Gary, Indiana home.
