“When I made this song called “Gangster’s Life.” It was a story of me being born into a gangster life, me living a gangster life and me passing this gangster life on to my little brother, and my little brother ended up getting killed. It was so deep and so dope how I told the story, it was the song that got me my record deal with Dre.“
