I thought I couldn’t no more ... this one hit me hard," he continued. "Marlo was a gangster an sometimes death comes with that I want all the people who look up to me or even admire what I’m doing to understand an kno what come with this “gangster shit “ if that’s how you living ... shit hurts bad."
