It’s the summer of 1993; as a recent graduate of Crenshaw High School and at a point I was looking forward to leaving for North Carolina on scholarship, you could not have told me that my life would have changed before that even happened….
It’s just getting dark and he didn’t call yet. I’m in the front room of the house on Cadillac Boulevard watching TV with my little brother Alfey when the phone rings, it’s him! Suge wanted to know my address; I told him I’m off Cadillac and Robertson. It took him 10 to 15 minutes to get there. He pulled up in a new Black Mercedes SL 500 convertible with the top down, blasting music… Suge’s homeboy, Heron was in the passenger seat. So I thought, “That’s who went in my place,” but I couldn’t get mad; we had just met several hours earlier. To my surprise Suge was a total gentleman, I invited him in my house, my little brother Alfey greeted him at the door, while my mom Patty yells from the kitchen, “Who is at the door?” I reply “Mommy it’s my friend Suge.”
At that same moment everybody going back to Snoop’s trailer for another smoke out and they call out to me. I look that way and before I could answer Suge says, “Stormey, what you want to do, you want to fuck with the help or you want to fuck with the boss?” I told him, “I’m fucking with the boss.” He said, “Well get in, we going to Compton.” I wave to the girl’s goodbye and ask Suge, “Where am I going to sit?” He had his homeboy Neck Bone riding in the passenger seat, so I walk over to the other side as Neck Bone opens the door. I can tell he was thinking he did not want me on his lap, and I was thinking I do not want to sit on his lap, so I get in and sit on the center console leaning on Suge the whole ride to Compton, which was 20 minutes of straight awkwardness.
