Ka: "New York City was crazy. I would take the A train and I would have my box cutter on me not knowing if I had to split somebody's face open or if somebody was going to split my face. You know, if I had a $40 pair of sneakers, I wouldn't know if I would have to fight for these sneakers, because there was just bulls out on the streets.

"Halloween in the '80s was fucking crazy. It was mayhem in the streets during Halloween. I remember 42nd Street, like before credit cards was popping, we used to hit people's pockets... There were just no rules in the '80s. No rules. And if you survived the '80s, that was a blessing.

"And then came the '90s, which were just as dangerous, because then the guns kinda started to become introduced a little more. There was just a lot of poverty. You were either going to take it or you were not going to have it. It was that time and the rich were really rich and the poor were really poor. It was a big social and economic gap between the two and it made for desperate times."
