Rapper Discusses Glorification of “The Streets”

Most people don’t realize it, but there is The Street, which refers to Wall Street, and then there are The Streets, which refers to life in the hood. Both are equally profitable, though one is rarely thought of as “marketable.”

A famous rapper whose street name is Lil Boosie grew up hard, as he is from The Streets. The Streets landed him in prison.

In this interview, he explains that people wrongly glorify the streets, and that is killing the black community.
