lessons from the prince

remember this diddy?
in west philadelphia born and raised,
on the playground is where i spent most of my days.
chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool,
and shootin' some b-ball right outside the school.
when a couple of guys who were up to no good,
started makin' trouble in my neighborhood.
i got in one little fight and my mother got scared and said,
"you move in wit your uncle and auntie in bel air."

and it goes on. he moves, starts a new life in california, learns
some life lessons, etc. what i'm hoping we can take away from this is
that as long we don't make any trouble for each other, no one else
will have to move to california (or portland). now i know that 1kb is
leaving because of a job opportunity, but we don't have to lose
anybody else because of little fights and scared mamas. we can keep
chillin' out, maxin', and relaxin' all cool, just like the fresh
prince. we can continue to be shootin' some b-ball all our days.

let's learn from the lives of others. a'ight, i'll see you guys early
in the morning.

peace out.
