“She yelling that selling’s a sin/Well, so is telling young men that selling is a sin/If you don’t offer new ways to win” - André 3000
Song: "Sixteen" f/ André 3000
Drug dealing is a crime that brings a negative stigma and hate from every mother and mentor. Endless lessons, PSAs, and police lectures create a paradox. Andre realizes that every time a mother criticizes drug dealing, she is doing the right thing, but sadly feeding the cycle. Because dealing is the only way “to win,” shutting down drugs sales implies killing the futures and dreams of poverty-stricken children. Without a better plan, dealing seems more viable than nothing.
