    Do you not think speaking and acting "hood" hinders social progression or are you content in remaining in the ghetto?
    most definitely does. if you strive for the better things (unless you're a hood rapper), you must conform to the normalities of those in the social class you wish to reside.

    i probably have, yup that's right, i don't claim to be a gangster.. although you'd be a fool to suggest that growing up in an environment doesn't dampen your chances of relative success

    right i agree, compared to people outside the UKs (and even some within the UK), i am living a comfortable life.. i have a roof over my head, a tv, and i don't go hungry yes... although relative to the rest of the UK/London this is the gutter bro.. council estate flat in a not so pleasant part of town.

    "the nature of promises is that they remain immune to changing circumstances" - frank underwood, house of cards

    what it means to me, if i tell myself or someone i'd do something, i'd do it regardless of the obstacles involved - whether that be laziness, hardships or failure
