n*ggas wasn't bummy, the styles just hadn't progressed yet in New Orleans, it was white tees and Girbauds for n*ggas livin the lives they lived. they really did have long money before this rap sh*t, as a matter of fact, them n*ggas financed all their own sh*t in the beginning, that money didn't come out of thin air. when your money is all legit, you can stunt as loud and as hard as you want to because you don't have to worry about the attention when you can clearly show how you're able to afford it all.
