A life of Pain and Fear followed by a hardened soul. It is not forced on you but made as a young kid in a ghetto who sees all the things your brothers and older friends who you look up to and see that they are gangstas. And once you enter a gang there is no getting out. In addition to watching your best friends die for stupid and pointless reasons, you can never rise above what you have gotten into. A GANG. That is a true gangsta someone who is IN A GANG. Then Through all of this it is glorified to the point where those who recognize the stupidity of its glorification then ridicule the young impressionable kids who joined the gang as illiterate and stupid. For people whove never been in a real ghetto, whove never had to take care of their younger sister when their mom would be gone from the house for weeks, for people who had nothing growing up and were looked down upon by people( for example the people on this site who dont know what they are talking about) its a way to be someone, to live, and survive as a gangsta. But by succumbing to this we kill each other, and keep ourselves from every rising above the status quo. The world would be better if we didnt have to be gangsta's. And to All those kids out in the suburbs pretending, do whatever you want its your choice as long as you do not cause harm to anyone or yourself, you are living in a false reality driven by stories of a life more exciting then your daily routine in your safe boring neighborhood. But as long as you glorify it you are proving yourself to be dissillusioned and have never seen anything besides what is on tv, and music.
J Kwon: I been banging since fifth grade cause my older cuz made so much money, bangin and sellin crack and shit. it didnt take long for my soul to become hard. I hate this life, if i could leave i'd leave and move somewhere where its not like a fuckin war. everyday its like iraq. bam. bam. bam. niggas die, its not fair we do we do this to eachother, little kids been shot, kids 8 years old strapped. kids 9 years old selling crack. kids 10 years old banging. We makin hell worse for eachother, funerals everyday, always ready to die. kids seeing shit nobody should see. then on top of all the pain, all the suffering, once we become successful we use this to exploit eachother, and glorify our pain
