Art of Words: Thugz Mansion (N.Y.)

Dear mama,

Don’t cry, your baby boy’s doin’ good. Tell the homies I’m in heaven and it ain’t got hoods. Seen a show with Marvin Gaye last night. It had me shook. Drinking Peppermint Schnapps with Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke. Then some lady named Billie Holiday sang. Sittin’ there kickin’ it with Malcolm til the day came. Lil’ Latasha sure grown! Tell the lady in the liquor store that she’s forgiven so come home! Maybe in time you’ll understand, only God can save us. Where Miles Davis cutting lose with the band. Just think of all the people that you knew in the past that passed on. They in heaven, found peace that last. Picture a place that they exist, together. There has to be a place better than this, in Heaven. So right before I sleep, dear God, what I’m asking…Remember this face, save me a place in Thugz mansion.
