    EP 115: The Mac Minister Interview

    Mac Minister was profiled on an episode of America's Most Wanted, allegedly responsible for the murder of Anthony "Fat-Tone" Watkins in Las Vegas, Nevada, in retaliation for the murder of Bay Area hip-hop icon Mac Dre.
    We had the opportunity to converse with Mac Minister from the belly of the beast. We spoke on the holes in his case, how he feels certain people abandoned him after his sentence and why his spirit is as strong as ever, and the very strong possibility of him coming home.
    Mac also goes into great detail about his upcoming book “Nicademus The Crime Boss Of The Jungle Hood”, which is available on his Instagram page @themacminister

All financial aid is not pay back

Most Financial Aid you do have to pay back but the one you don’t have to pay back is called a “ Pell Grant “. Some states may not have them.

And of course it’s ALL made up. They don’t go outside & we all remember what the English teacher told us. “ IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING REAL, make it up “

Racist against whites.

These idiots can’t understand the law. Chavin did not kill George Floyd. Fentanyl did.
