Someone who partakes in the sale of crack on urban streets.Crack dealers rarely work corners solo. If the man is part of a clique
a dealer might have a runner to get the crack from the stash spot, and lookout who will watch for any adversaries or Police and warn the dealer and runners if they are near.
Crack dealers are usually in gangs. Even ones who are not in gangs are usually affiliated with gangs they they conduct business for weapons and coke for. This adds a layer of protection because the politicians of the ghetto are the dealers, hustlers, killers, and gangsters. There is no such thing as delegation and when someone wants you rubbed out thats when you will need all the backup you can get.
If you are a crack dealer theres probably a 100% chance you were raised in the ghetto, don't know your father, and your role models were criminals and other dealers. Alot of crack dealers are truly great people and alot of the nicest and most incredibly wise people ive ever met were crack dealers. I think when you deal with death, stress, and psychological warfare for such long intense periods of time, along with living such an eccentric lifestyle. (Many crack dealers sleep most of the day, hit the clubs at night than from 11PM-5AM sell drugs, when you live like that I guess you gain a skewed outlook on life which is in many ways, brilliant. This however only applies to dealers older than 20 who have been in the game more than 5 years. 5 years in the game will mature you 60 years in a normal life. Ive seen un-educated, no diploma having dudes in there mid 20s speak incredible knowledge about things well beyond there years in normal conversation.
Many crack dealers were nearly forced into the lives they live for many reasons. A crack dealer is nothing more than a man that gives the supply to a demand in an un-charted demographic. He's a salesman and businessman. Is he pure evil? It depends on the person. Many crack dealers truly are the spawn of Satan.
To be a crack dealer you must be street intelligent, be a master of the metric system, be unfuckwitablewit when it comes to fighting or intimidation, have enough money to invest in an ounce, a .45 pistol and 5 friends with .45 pistols along with a local Trap
to sell at. If you want this job you must except the fact that 3/4 people doing what you do don't live past 22. If you are the best you will live long and make more than $4,000 every day for minimal work.
The chances of this happening to you is about as likely as winning the lotto however.
