Shoes ugly af! I can't understand the uproar over somebody who had so many chances and still kept messing up. Sure, it was folks out to get him, the Judge, the PO, etc, but he knew this and still gave them reason to lock him up. If he was an ordinary citizen, he probably wouldn't have received so many chances. Additionally, after all the shit he talked when he got out after his last bid, his fans still does not have his album. I wonder if he spent as much time in the studio as he did in the streets frontin' and high sidin'? He should've followed the Gucci Mane blueprint in making a lot of music, that way his fans could still have bodies of his music to hold them down until he gets out.
