    I’m looking at this and I grew up with this dude I’m from the fort he lived two buildings from me y’all didn’t show nobody he actually hung with where’s Tom, Felton his first cronies. He actually was a good dude he played ball crime wasn’t his whole life but he died the way he lived. When became a 5% his name was Divine and he didn’t do it while he was in jail. We all got knowledge of self around the same time. The way he’s being portrayed is he had no respect for anyone he did for old people especially. Talk to people he grew up with. Wow he hung with kills Ben I God they were all short. He was a legend though and he is missed by all those who really knew him.
