owning layland at everything that i do. i own at everything because i play for keeps. it has nothing to do with "keeping your pride" because when you go big like i, you never lose it, so you dont have to fight to keep it. i go for the TD all the time with my brother T.O. after the interception from my cousin Pacman, who is currently making it rain on some bitches at the club. thats enough for now, im out. peace.
i play for keeps at lonnies with my homeboy DonQuatous and own the scumbag named leland
