Although people often stereotype drug dealers as being evil people that only care about themselves, in this case the dealer only turned to a life of crime to save his family from poverty. Since he only cared about helping his family get out of the hood, he didn’t care about going to jail for life, because he knew he had already accomplished his life goal — breaking the poverty cycle and setting up his future generations for success.

This is the case with many young black men, they don’t turn to crime for fun or for money, they turn to crime because that is the only way they will make the money they need to survive and get their families out of poverty.

Wordplay with prosecution and witness:

Usually in court cases, the prosecution uses witnesses (or snitches) to prove the guilt of the people they are trying, and in this case it would be Herb’s crew on trial. So, in order to get away with their crime (or avoid prosecution), Herb’s crew will execute (or kill) the snitch that witnessed it, which is contrary to court doctrine where it is the defendant that is usually executed.

Kanye never took anything for granted when it came to his music, as he said on Spaceship:

Y'all can’t match my hustle
You can’t catch my hustle
You can’t fathom my love dude
Lock yourself in a room doing 5 beats a day for 3 summers

And it all paid off, he is now considered one of the greatest hip-hop artists to have ever lived and will probably be remembered long after his death for the passion he put into his craft.

The gang-banging culture of Chicago later created their own subgenre of rap, Drill Rap, and from the number of Drill rappers that are getting arrested, including RondoNumbaNine being arrested for murder, you can tell Kanye wasn’t lying here.

This is very true, Kanye is now known worldwide for not being afraid to voice his opinion on anything he thinks is wrong with the world, whether that is thinking Beyoncé deserved a grammy over Taylor Swift, or thinking George Bush was ignoring blacks in New Orleans Post Katrina, he always speaks his mind on the matter.

And although many people hate him for this, just as many love him for it, and he will continue to give his opinions on everything, as he said on Get Em High:

Why you think me and Dame cool? We assholes
That’s why we hear your music in fast forward

No, it didn’t, Kanye quickly became one of the highest selling Hip-Hop artists on the planet without ever having to resort to talking about selling drugs, the College Dropout alone has sold 3.3 million units.

And of course, his 3rd studio album, Graduation, outsold noted Gangster rapper 50 Cent’s album, Curtis, proving it is possible to be popular without talking about gangster shit.
