Cause the way I approach it, from another angle
I stay in the streets and notice the gutter rainbows
Gutter rainbows are rainbows found in sewage. Talib is contrasting something seen as disgusting with something seen as beautiful. He knows that ghettos are dark places but he sees the beauty in some of it’s people so he won’t give up on them.
