On the corner of the block, where the kids stream home, when leaving school, a “big kid” is waiting. He may be wearing pants with a crotch near his knees, a shirt with a bright logo of Hopsin rapping and and a Bubba cap at the angle for attitude or just a an orange sweatsuit and an attitude. He has pills in his pants pocket and grass in his shirt, cut with just a bit of dust for “fun.”
He smiles, talks the lingo mentions your friends who are in with the “stuff” and how you can be “bad” just like them! Its a slam dunk man! Your friends are smiling cause he is smiling (and some are afraid not to smile). Its sweet, its in, its bad and with it you’ll be stoked man. Your part of the hood now and your life does’t suck anymore.
Now in the lower right corner is a drug commercial for Paradoxa (c). This ad won’t change or fade cause its free from me to the drug company. You see its got a smiling man in the corner and he’s telling you that if your heart is banging around in your chest and your feeling left out of the group having fun, he can help! He’s got pills in his pocket and an rx padin this shirt. Now of course, you suspect that there is a price to pay other than money.
The smaller print talks about bleeding and death. But the guy in the top is smiling and he has that authoritative stethoscope around his neck, so you know he knows! He’s in with the group and smiling. He knows he can make your misery end….uh, uh … I wonder what that means? Just remember, you can be in with the group! Watch the TV version and see that old man now out dancing, drinking and partying with the lady that looks like his overly sexy daughter! Your in with the happy crowd again! It’s cool, it’s sexy, its with it man! Whats a little risk of bleeding to death after all you take a risk crossing the street everyday. Besides, the guy in the Ad is smiling and well know that words don’t count when body language tells us … do it man!
