His mother always wanted to live better and worked hard for it, that’s why Busta got whole crews robbed to provide for his mother
He worked so much his hands were as destroyed as the hands of a junkie
They were poor but young and love each other, even though life was hard
Although life was difficult, Busta’s father worked hard and made an honest living.
