Thread: Bragging about hood toughness, struggle and survival.

    Real talk I'm proud as fuck where I came from and I look back and see people who had money and a good upbringing struggling. Knowing you made this shit all by yourself when everything seems to be against you, thats some passion that some people will never understand.

    This isnt just a "hood" thang either ya digg? Everyone struggles just some stay in it and don't rise above, become better and change. I went from "Minds playin Tricks" to "Damn It Feels Good To Be Gangsta", trill talk, still got the struggle now but in 5 years mufuckas gonna be calling me sir.

    Thats some badge shit I wear on my arm with pride, I'm not proud of a lot I've done but I'm proud of where I got to.

    I have a problem when rappers brag they live in the hood and love it. NO ONE living in an environment like that wants it, farealfareal, no one wants to live next to prostitutes, drug addicts and dealers, people breaking into your home and shit, beating and shooting eachother out the front of your house, no one wants that shit and these faggits fake brag about it.

    That pisses me off, be proud that you survived and it IS a badge of honour, but dont act like you like it.
    yep.

    i know talk is cheap and these mothafuckas could be fraud for all we know but when life is hard do u not find yourself somewhat motivated and inspired by other mothafuckas that had a fucked up life but still came up?

    Real people do not brag about what they are made of.

    People who do that try to convince others of their worth cuz deep inside they feel inadequate as a person.

    Real tough people show action, not words.

    well, alot of people do this, you'll notice it everywhere.

    this particular case, i'd say, sometime its part of the game of survival. Even if your not tough you gotta act it, cuz you can't show weakness.
    Its a primitive act but its something that is still useful and essential for humans who come from certain places.
    Alot of times, they can't turn it off, especially if they have been that way since birth.
    Look eye, always look eye.

    Sometimes those people aren't so bad. When a misdemeanor happens they don't make big deals out of them and just move on. Sometimes not caring for certain things are better.

    Uey drops many a jewels..realest nigga in Wu IMO.

    It's funny that skampoe thinks america is somehow tougher are more hard to cope with than other parts of the world. thats how small minded he is. If you actually travelled about fatso then ya might realise struggle is the world over so stop tryna make it sound worse than it is.

    I agree that some people have it easy but you also have that in many countries but low class families have the same problems wherever ya go.
