You wanna slang crack, or hold tecs, and do the concept
You can't make loot, when your moms is smokin up the product
It’s a hard life basically. You might try to make money by selling crack but the people close to you, i.e. your mom, are smoking all the crack you are supposed to sell, thereby damaging her and your whole community.
