“If you walk by a street and was walking on concrete and you saw a rose growing out of concrete, even if it had messed up petals and was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose grow through concrete.

So why is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of all the dirtiest circumstances and he can talk and he can sit across from you, make you smile, make you cry, make you laugh. All you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems, and how im leaning to the side. You cant see I grew up out of that.”

~ Tupac Shakur
