Beanie Sigel - The Ghetto


Let there be no doubt: Beans can rap.



I love Philly so much. It's the most beautiful and most ugly place I've ever been. One night we heard shots, and there was a girl lying dead on our back porch. It's beyond words how scary that is. Philly's an incredible city. It's vibrant, exciting, beautiful... But god I hope the violence stops. A murder a day is normal here. The hood is desolate, block dark as it's ever been... But still beautiful.


The crazy thing is, just how much of Philly really looks like that. It's a tough friggin' town...

Temple U

I go to Temple and the neighborhoods around campus look like that. Its a pretty stark reminder of the parts of town I don't necessarily see that often or that many people here in town completely ignore.
