Innocent . That's what I was . Focused on what really mattered in life . No criminal record . I never got so much as a detention . One day , we got evicted . The bills were becoming too much for them , it was so overwhelming . So we had to give up our amazing luxurious house in New York City to move to old Brooklyn . This was the Compton version of New York . Walking to the park wasn't the same anymore . Getting a ride home from your friend's dad wasn't the same either . I lost people , I gained people . But most importantly I gained respect on the streets .
