real-hiphophead:

So … you presume to know what kind of man I am, from a few tumblr posts and my picture? It is generally unwise to make such large assumptions about someone you don’t know.

Let’s just say, complete hypothetical here, that I had hustled for many years. That I had seen some of my closest friends become junkies or go to prison in this drug war or die. And let’s just say, hypothetically of course, I had got popped with 20 lbs of marijuana and done a year and a half in prison for it because I’m not a snitch. And not cushy minimum security prison, the state pen. That I’m just barely off parole now. And let’s add to that, imagine this, that I had a profound perspective on the huge and destructive conspiracy surrounding drugs, prisons, the police and government, and the oppression of my people. And I don’t care what race or religion you are, if you believe in love and freedom, you are my people.

Now … I’m not saying any of that. Relax. But, hypothetically speaking here, if I were, I’d have the right to say something, yeah?

But hey, you’re probably right, and I’m just some dumb poor fuck who doesn’t know a thing about real life.

We make Tumblr themes
