"Paying the Piper his Dues" is a true story told through the eyes of a major hustler who left the game in his prime. I was faced with a dilemma which was play the hand I was dealt or give up and fall prey to the streets. As a youngster I saw the local hustlers getting money and all of the girls this only fueled my fire. As a result I became fascinated with the game, I thought this would be my ticket to the American dream and my way out of the hood. Nobody told me glitter and glim ain't what it seem and everything you get from the game the price you must pay in return is too high. I was expelled from High School, went to jail and labeled. Thank God for my mother, and the Hank-Lady I finished High School and went on to graduate from Alabama State University. Nobody told me the life I chose would be easy, but nobody told it would be this hard. Thanks to my street teachers Shoe Strang, and Mike I was able to take the game by a storm. I lost a lot to the game for example, my first love, my homeboys, and most of all my childhood. It was hard for me for me to leave the game not because of the money but because I was concern about the people who dependent on me to feeding their families. I thank God I was able to leave the game. To all my youngster steer clear of the game because in the end the price is too high to pay take it from me.
