The only reason he was a "crack dealer/criminal" was because he had to survive, which is ironically the only reason we even talkin about him now. He took what he learned from the game and applied it to a more positive way of livin. Not to say what he talks about/ his image is necessarily "positive".. but still.. he aint been in the streets for almost a decade now..
If anything I think its a good thing.. It show's all the sheltered white people in the burbs (who only base their opinions off stereotypes) that someone that came from that life CAN change and arent all hopeless.
Maybe its just me... but it kinda chips away at that wall of ignorance they were raised behind...
Its bothers me that some people expect these rappers/ball players to live the same life they did growing up. With all that money and fame, they have to mature sometime; and being able to give back to the community whether it be black, white, or other, is a true measure of success. Looks like 50 made it to me...:applause:
