Lost Ones

When you lost your way, and let your homies hang...

The Gravediggaz - "1-800 SUICIDE" (mp3)
(purchase here)

Run's House laughs at how cute Vanessa's accent is and drops jaw at the size of, uh, Run's house... yet JMJ remains restless. The price of keeping it street?

Or, what price the streets? Stan "Tookie" Williams, the former Crips co-founder, had his death warrant signed for this December. My knowledge of him is admittedly limited to assorted articles since his Nobel nomination and the biopic starring Jamie Foxx. That said, when did expedience become a factor in assigning execution?

And in the face of uncertainty, we should keep it... white? Maybe Gold would be more appropriate. I suppose Paul's woes are mellow in comparison, but he and his cohorts seem to inhabit a habitual state of displacement. The Gravediggaz cut is a stretch back to an admittedly dark period in his life, but also represents one of his numerous creative apices. Dig for Dust to find more old nuggets. There's gotta be hope for the lost ones.
