17. “Dear Born, you’ll be out soon, stay strong/ Out in New York the same sh*t is going on/ The crackheads stalking, loudmouths is talking/ Hold, check out the story yesterday when I was walking/ That n***a you shot last year tried to appear/ Like he hurting something, word to mother, I heard him fronting/ And he be pumping on your block, your man gave him your Glock/ And now they run together, what up son, whatever”“One Love”
