“Ain’t nothing lame, ain’t nothing punkish about being smart. Ain’t nothing punkish about being 25, 26, 28 and never had a run in with the law,” he stressed. “That don’t make you a punk man. That makes you a winner.”

That’s some words we all should live be, especially me. I had the luck of being raised by a decent family and not having to deal with the law. Now I’m getting to graduate school in a few months. For a 26 year old black male, that’s definently something. Oh BTW, buy his new album when it drops next month, because I have no doubt it will be bumping.
