But you know, that’s what comes with it: The job title has job requirements. Ramifications that come with the job. And we understand that where we come from, the neighborhood that I come from—that if we do join a gang or sell drugs, what comes with it. Either death, jail, murder, mayhem, robbery, kidnapping, or all of that. We understand that and we accept that. But it’s just a matter of, do you wanna better yourself and try to become something different and walk in a different, as opposed to the same light you’ve been patterned—or brainwashed—to know. So I chose to walk in a different light, once I became Snoop Dogg and became a rapper. And I was always ahead of my peers, because my mother used to always have me with the grown folks, so I never really ran with the crowd that was young. I always ran with the experienced crowd, so I was able to dibble and dabble and find out the ins and outs and the real deal at an early age.
