      they stuck by the nigga and I’m sure they paid ALL the legal fees while he was going through that stupid shit he was in. and if its fact that he didn’t snitch, then I’m sure its those crackers who rubbed shoulders on those golf courses that kept his dumb ass out of a more fucked up situation. see how niggas do you in the long run?
