There’s a lot of hate in the streets. People don’t want to see you doing better than them. That’s what got my cousin killed and my other homeboys killed. Jealousy, hate…they died over jealousy, envy and hate. People will hate you because you known. Niggas build up so much hate that they get to the point where they feel like they have to kill. They need to see you fall.

 You have to grow up fast where we’re from... People will try you... Seeing people pass; seeing dead bodies; It numbs your heart... Once you go through something like losing a homeboy, it becomes real... Now, it aint like carrying a gun for no reason; it’s like, I got to.

 Baby daddy you said I’m yours forever…You said you was done being a luh boy…Baby daddy you said you love me. Every time I told you to get out the street, you told me Ima make it home baby girl…I got ya’ll to come home to...Baby come home…

 It can happen to anybody…It don’t matter how much fame you got; what you did for other people; money; none of that matters. It’s that time that matters…You in this place, with these people, at the wrong time…We didn’t ever think this could happen…I don't want the younger kids to go through the same things we been through.

 Brian had gone to get his haircut. The dudes he went with are the ones who did it. They were older friends. The same thing that happened to my nephew James happened to my son Brian...The people who come for you are the ones who know everything about you…I don’t want to be sad. I don’t want to be around this. I can’t bring my son Relly Rell back here.

 Mama says don’t trust your friends they out to get you…and I don’t trust a soul, yea I always keep my pistol…I won’t let em get close to me, won’t let em get close to me…

 I hope that we don’t have to go through so much pain that we’ve been through in the past. We try so hard to live life and make life a little easier for them. I’m hoping that our grandchildren don’t go through the same things...I want everything to come out the way that Tay wants it to—with his music and his life, because my biggest fear is losing my child—to the streets, to sickness, whatever...I pray on it.

 Your past always follows you, everywhere that you go… People used to tell me that it was up to me to keep us out the bullshit. When Swagg died and Relly Rell went to jail, I told myself I failed… The only thing I can do is keep pushin…I know they wouldn’t wouldn’t want me to stop...
