A place were blacks roam the streets and jamaicans, Africans and Akis shop at 52nd street to buy and steal sneaks. Everybody wears Addidas and drinks Kool-aid. At certain times store owners close up shop and mothers hide their kids cas they know somebody is going to get shot each day. The El runs through West Philly to Center City. All the White people get off before the El reaches 52nd street.
"I'm in West Philly"
"Ard, don't get shot again".
