Rapper T I
"I want to thank God for somehow … I know he perfect.
So I'mma thank him for everything. I'mma thank him
for making me drop out of school. I'mma thank him for
making me run the streets. I'mma thank him for making
me sell crack. I'mma thank him for making me have
shoot-outs. I'mma thank him for allowing me to watch
my partners die in my arms, So I'd be fearful enough for
my life and paranoid enough to go out and cop machine
guns and silencers so I catch a fed case and I have to put
up $3 million for my bond so I have to spend seven
months of my life in my house, so I have to spend a year
of my life in prison just so I be validated enough to get
out there and touch the youth because they know that I
done been through it, and if I say it, it means something.
You know what I'm saying?"
