GC choppin’ it up with 👑 Flex

I thought Tariq was from Alabama. Y’all about to truly get the real. A lot of podcasts are afraid to receive the jewels from Tariq. The same cat Faux News calls a race baiter. What’s up with Mink Slide? It’s about to go down. Respect to the GC and Tariq Nasheed!

Project Pat Interview

Man! Project Pat dropped the science on this one. The biggest jewel to me was about making choices. Just because you square up and get a job does not change who you are as a man. The job does not take away your scrapping skills. And choosing when and how to react to a situation is vital. You always have to assess when someone is trying to bring you down to a low level that you already left.
