I'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it

Today is my birthday so the very first thing I did when I woke up was listen to Nas' classic Life's A Bitch cause he he kicks off his verse with "I woke early on my born day". As the song was playing and I heard Az's verse it dawned on me, this college thing is bigger than me, I'm doing it for everyone.

In my life most people don't even have that option, half the kids I started school with never finished high school, matter of fact I'm the only black kid from my elementary school class to that did. I can count the number of people in my town's black community that have a degree on my hands, there isn't many.

While explaining the situation to New Yorkers I could only compare it to if Rich Porter had of gone to college without leaving the street. It's that huge. I'm carrying the cross right now. I'm really puttin on for my city right now, I'm really starting to think the best way to give back is to lead by example.
