Hip Hop Quote Of The Week

Artist: Slick Rick
Album: The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick (1988)
Song: Hey Young World

"Love mean happiness... that once was strong, but due to society... even that’s turned wrong

Who brought you up right... and who loved you since your birth? Reward is a brainwashed kid goin wild young little girls already have a child..."
