    Yes you can reach your true destiny with a mindset like that. The streets can't change the core of you poet.

    nice droppings

    why did you cap it off with ja-ja roule'? no offense but, ja-ja upset so many people by letting 50 get away with his tirade. He should have known that Hip-Hop was a battleground before he started re-enacting "Grease" and singing love songs (one too many). I'm not one for "beef" but, Ja-Ja came out all hardcore and left like a crushed jelly bean. Certain battles will haunt MCs for a long time. HMMMMMM, sounds like I got another drop... Where's the Beef?

    By the way, nice flow and good resiliance on standing your ground. Minds like ours either belong out of the hood or inside the hood dictating important matters.

    this is not about ja or 50 or anybody except me

    poet the song is with Mary J too.

    don't get caught in that, the song is the streets raised me and that's my

    anthem i don't care who sings it

    that song is me

    you totally crushed my poem because rap rappers ja 50 nas jay-z

    have nothing to do with this

    this is about ME

    Da Street So'ja

    if Ja got crushed that's on him

    i still like and play his music

    and most NY rappers for that matter

    thank you for your comment

    lol

    you totally avoided commenting on my piece Street Level

    to tell me about some ish that ain't even real

    the beefs are not real

    they pay each other off

    and somebody pays for what goes on

    even LL and Kool Moe D

    trust me i'm here

    with my ear to the street

    peace and love poet

    you know it's all love

    A positive mindset

    A mindset that decides that there's something more than the streets, as difficult as that decision may be.

    no offense

    that song is me

    you totally crushed my poem

    Da Street So'Ja, in no way did I mean to "crush your poem". I gave you props at the end of my comment in a different font. It seems as if ym initial attack on Ja Rule provoked your anger, 1,000 pardons for that. The song DID correlate with the topic of your drop and YES, I should have commented on a more positive note. Just know that I am still a fan of your work. I just don't like the way some rappers let their (false) careers get torn up in the eyes of hip-hop's adored youth fan base. Please don't get me wrong. I like Venni, Vetti, Vicci but, c'mon Street, I know you don't bump that "Grease" song. That song you posted was one of his hot ones, true indeedy. I even liked "...Every Thug Needs A Ladyyyyy!" and Always On Time. Feel me, Street. So, props to the "meat" of your poem here and props to the "home of hip-hop" and props to peace between the GODs on the Earth.
