I Use to Be Involved With Gangs

sometimes when we feel alone we turn to gangs and call them family-what made you realize that the gang life wasn't where it was at 43 People

    I Was Not Heavily Involved Or Anything Like That

    But my freshman year of high school I went to the roughest school in my city and at the time I lived on the roughest side of town. I went to school and of course tried to do the right things and what not. Tried to be normal. Tried to make friends and what not and of course I made...

    People can judge me but they should first know

    that : a) In situations like a lock-down scenario you do what you have to to get by. b) that mentality sticks with you, once grow accustomed to that thought process, it's always there.. c) it's much easier to get into "the game" then it is to get out.
