The devil comes in all shapes and sizes and he's ruthless. Life here is temporary. They will kill you for this lifestyle, if they can't afford it jealousy is a motherfucker Protect yourself, protect the people you love. I'm sad to see my brother go out like this, one of the realest people I met. This shit's not right. These streets don't love us My prayers go to his kids and family. We going to finish off what we started #ripchinx #ripstacks #freemaxb 🙏 s/o to #jayz
