    yea we survive but everyone doesnt get that chance.these streets aint no game out here, we look over ours day nd night ready to bust any nd everything that comes in way. coming from the southside 100s there is no love nd we were taught to show no love; but we stay chief warriors till the we die...nd we die! rip Chi.
