What a time to be alive... That's been the slogan the past few months in the hip hop community and it has transcended over into the every day living of regular civilians... I mean even I got excited when Drake and Future tweeted out the link, arguably the two hottest artists in the game, who wouldn't be? But let's put the music aside for a sec, I guess what we have to ask ourselves is, is it a good time to be alive or bad? Every month it seems like another young black man has been taking from us by...

"I got a hustler spirit, ----- period Check out my hat yo, peep the way I wear it  Check out my swag' yo, I walk like a ballplayer No matter where you go, you are what you are player And you can try to change, but that's just the top layer Man, you was who you was before you got here Only God can judge me, so I'm gone Either love me, or leave me alone."
