      I love my St. Louis people. But at the same time St. Louis is trifling. His family failed him miserably. But I’m so glad he made it ❤️

                  He just capitalized at the perfect time. Nelly an his crew had STL poppin. His album wasn't nothing special. He came out at the perfect time to be a 1 hit wonder. Nothing wrong with that he'll be straight for the rest of his life

                                                      I love his energy and how humble he is I’m glad that he put this out because he letting us know he bout to come back out and kill it again it sad what he been through but at the end of the day he became a wonderful man god got him and he’s gonna come back stronger than before

                                                        Seem like he got what he wanted which was to be famous. He had potential to be a great in the game I don’t think his work ethic was there. Hood hop is a classic tho

I wouldn’t do that to any child even if they weren’t mine like idk how anyone especially someone with kids be able to allow a 12 year old to be homeless when u have a home to let them stay in. That’s insane to me
