“You know, I’m not the smartest person that you ever met. I’m not Einstein. But I’m the
person that always thinks he gonna do something, and I think that’s the difference.”
Here it is: real-life street cred from today’s hottest rap and hip-hop stars. It’s advice and insight that’s straight up, from the folks who’ve been there.
“Love is everything in my book. You can have as much money as you want, but without love how happy can you be? Because if you try to buy it, it’s not real.” —Eve
“I’m not perfect. I’ve made a lot of mistakes and there’s a lot of things that I don’t know, but I’m not afraid to learn, and not afraid to say that I don’t know something.” —Foxy Brown
“I would take book smarts over street smarts if I had to make a choice. Book smarts could get you to be the CEO of a company, be like Donald Trump . . . I don’t know if street smarts could get you anywhere but jail. You can’t retire on street smarts but you can on book smarts.” —Ice T
“Don’t be no follower, man, ’cause you’ll go down fast. You gotta do things for yourself. Think for yourself. Know right from wrong. ’Cause that’s what I had to do. I had to learn right from wrong.” —Raekwon of Wu Tang Clan
