Good Clothes

Back at the crib, we got a mall called Cheltenham Mall. When I was younger, we would hit the mall, and there was this store called "Scorpio" that sold all the fly shit . . . Rocawear, Akademiks, Guess, Azzure. . . lol, this was the late 90s! Every chick that worked there looked GOOD, and when you came in, then immediately offered to help you . . . . basically, I ain't have no dough, so i felt like a loser, so i avoided Scorpio like the plague! Now I'm a fly ass dude. . . .

Love somebody else
When I can't

God I miss the crib. . . .
