I has been over twenty plus years since colors and thirty years since the warriors came out. Today we still have brothers bangin and standing like they are so hard on the yard. I saw a brother walking down the street with kids looking behind his back. I wanted to stop and tell him to grow up and get his life together for the sake of his kids and his own safety. When I see a brother walking around with all that anger on his face I understand his condition but I just can't make the connection to the "I hate my people and the world" syndrome.

Seeing these dudes throw busses at the penitentiary is heart breaking, and unlawful to say the least. Especially when I get letters from people like Kevin Cooper and others like him who are trying to get out here in these streets to help make things better. I know deep in my heart that these brothers that write to me are serious about stopping the untimely destruction of a entire generation of people. Gang Banger I have a question for you my young homie. Does Gang Bangin have a retirement fund--or is it true that they really have a gangstas paradise?

Knock it off homie! God is swift to take account of your actions and you have so much that you have not done and seen in this life to have that "I don't give a damn" mentality. Before you pick up that gun, go and pick up a phone and call somebody who has been where you are definitely trying to get to. When I talk to brothers on the phone like UNO and others who have not held a set of keys in their hands for years or haven't slept with their children as babies, then I sit my butt down somewhere. How would you feel if you, like I, did not hear the voices of children for years because you are locked away from the real world. Young people grow up and get a better life for your self. Get away from the fantasies of being the hardest in the hood. That slot has been filled by the best that have ever done it.

Don't think for one second that the problems you face are going to go away when you put in work. If you ask somebody that knows about putting in work, they will tell you that you never stop seeing your victim everyday. So don't be too quick to do what your second mind tells you to do.

Always be cognizant of the conversations going on around you at all times. After all you could be next on the annihilation list.

I can remember a time when my days in the belly of the devil was very difficult for me. Inside I was crying and on the outside I felt like I was a dead man walking around with no directions whatsoever. Maybe that is why I can feel the pain of a TJ Swan or Big Time Barry. These brothers are the Blood in my eyes when it comes to gathering strength to make it in this world.

When I think about the bad things I have to deal with out here in these streets I think about the brothers like Armstrong on Death Row on some of the poor people on the streets, who society won't even help. It is just my job to tell my people to hold on to their faith and don't give up on the prospects of being free from prison and mental bondage.

Word to the wise is sufficient if you are trying to get out of prison. Now is the time to free your self from slavery by getting back in prayer mode and make a new deal with god concerning your freedom and desire to get away from the traps of mankind, that has taken us back into time like aliens from space.

What has gotten into us Black and Brown men that has made us take a back seat to talent and adventure? How did we fall into this hole? Let us begin to collectively dig our way out of this and stand up like natural men. Stop killing your own and get out of prison and stay out. Don't get out now and then do nothing but die. Get out and push a line that is straight and narrow.

Trouble is easy to get into and easier to get out of when you pray to god for help. So please stay prayed up and don't go for the Okey-Dokey. Not only is it a good time to start living again, but a great time to appeal to the board and to the courts for your freedom, because they are broke and open for business. Long live my homies on Death Row...Only the real brothers who know who we are.
