    It's like the words you heard the old G say.
    He would rather be a pimp than work any day.
    Don't mean that it's right but the man is pimpin
    you, so here is what a wise man would do.
    Be the master of your own store house.
    Never leave your door open in a neighborhood
    of thieves.
    Always remember hoochies will give you a bad
    disease.
    A closed mouth still don't get fed, and a ho-ish
    woman won't ever get wed.
    If you find yourself infirmed in body and must
    go to the local Medical college, go in sqwakin
    and come out walking.
    A dollar a day, will pay somebody's way to college
    if you do it long enough!
    Don't let your bad attitude affect your altitude.
    A scalded dog will holla, so if you not the dog
    that got scalded keep yo mouth closed.
    Most of all remember the path you first chose.

    Such words to live by are born out of a survivor's world, embraced by a mother's wit and common sense-
