The Homeless Hustle

(Adult Language) This homeboy’s got flow for days.  He’s raw, he’s vicious and he don’t give a (*&^.  Listen to him spit about his hustle & flow.  Just another kid who fell through the cracks of the American foster care system.  It’s hard to sympathize with him when he’s so damn matter-of-fact about the terrible things he’s done, but its what he’s had to do to stay alive ’til today.  He spits hard, ripping into people like he doesn’t care, and he really doesn’t care.  He tells it like it is, and he does it with a laid back ferocity that is admirable and genuine.  He’s definitely not battling for money (cos he’s got nothing) and he’s not doing it for his pride (because he’s just a step above rock bottom).  Like he says in the video, he raps cos it’s therapeutic, cos otherwise he’d be out there breaking the jaws of all the well-kempt fools who ignore him during the day and speed-walk away from him at night.  It makes you wonder – does every single homeless person you pass on the street have so rich a story as his?  Just watch the video.  You’ll see what’s up.
