Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
So, I don't wanna hear that mess that I'm "talkin' down" to y'all. I mean, damn, I feel it, too! #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
So, what we gon' do is push education, increase employment, reshape child support requirements, etc. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
We gotta link up education to jobs so when you roll out with that paper, you can earn some of that paper, feel me? #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
We gon' get y'all more Summer jobs, y'all can kick it and earn more cash instead of showin' yo ass. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
This ain't rocket science, y'all. We know what works, we just gotta put it down in places where we haven't been. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
So, lemme recap. Education - get ya learnin'. Family - hold it down. Jobs - gotta get one. Let's move on. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
Truedat, government cain't do errythang but we can hold SOME things down, let's not front. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin

Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
We gon' get them past what we call "the tipping point," so they can peep the hood and feel alright about it. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
Y'all know I used to beat the block and now I run the block. Literally, I have block programs to give out, bruh. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
So, when it comes to change, it ain't gon' happen all at once and it ain't gon' happen for errybody. But still... #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
When I used to work down the block, we ran it like this: Neighborhood by neighborhood, block by block, fam by fam. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
So, it's like not errybody gon' work and get the come up automatically but some of y'all will and that's peace. #Chicago
Baracks Flagpin @BaracksFlagpin
Cuz when your homies get the come up, at least you know you can, too... and quit playin' around, fam. #Chicago
