Homegirl on cell pacing by the subway: Woman put a cigarette out on my daughter. I hear about it, come rushing down, there’s cop cars and shit out down the block. I pull up, pull out my gun, no shit, put that shit right in that bitch’s mouth. And she didn’t think I was serious till I cocked that mother fucker back an’ scream, “what did you do to my daughter!?” Shit was crazy. And that was one of the most fucked up dreams I’ve ever had.
