The “Goon Affiliated” Plies sat down with Fuse’s Toure to talk a few things, his brother, paying for a fans college tuition, his album, the pants sagging controversy and the Goon issue. I know there is a lot of stuff going around about Plies but I’m from the hood to, I graduated from college and I’m still in the hood. I know for a fact not going to school does not make you a real person and going to college doesn’t mean that you are smart.
I know straight clowns and cowards who run the streets and I also became friends with some real stand up dudes in the classroom. Any real G would tell you its real and fake cats where ever you go. It’s your decisions and actions in given situations that make you real. I don’t know Plies from a can of paint and never bought one of his CD’S but I wont call him no fraud because I don’t know that man when the cameras are off. So don’t let the media make decisions for you.
Base your opinions off of what you know and not what you hear. By people dissing Plies because he went to school, is a sucker move and only keeps kids in the hood thinking there is no way out. If it was because Jamie Foxx said he was hiding in the bathroom then ok. I know gangsters in school that did more dirt than your favorite rapping dropout. At the end of the day do you want a gangster or a rapper. Shyne kept it real and let his gun blow at the club and people turned on him and called him stupid for having a gun and bieng a rapper.
Lil Wayne is a child star who got caught with a gun, who is doing 8 months and people called him dumb for having a gun but none of those people were going to help pay for the funeral if they were caught slipping. It’s just music at the end of the day. It’s funny because just about everyone that owns and runs a major label has went or graduated from school. While we divide ourselves and rather be the slaving rapper who can’t read a contract. Maybe street music would be played more if we controlled more of our future.
