Do you suppose that when all that bullshit began taking place that you simply guys had been focused due to the music?

There was a bullseye on us man. Like I stated we all the time did what we wished and by no means took no for a solution and the cops all the time hating. The cops all the time in my hood shaking n***as down they usually was harassing us so when the music got here out it was like ‘oh hell no’ like my children are doing this shit and all people wanna do that dance. They shut down the streets and they weren’t having it so the music positively made it worse.
