But that wasn’t me saying, ‘Here, go try it.’ This was me showing the youth don’t let society paint this picture for you of, ‘Oh, Come to Bushwick. It’s nice. It’s gentrified. All these hipsters moving in and it’s cops on every corner,” he told the hosts. “I want to show you where I grew up and why I’m molded the way I am. Why I look the way I look. This is how I grew up.”
