annotation: "I got this name when people I used to see in the street, real live people would be like, "Yo that's my pastor right there." It got more serious the more people said it to me."
"It wasn't nothing that I claimed, but when people tell you that then you gotta take it to heart. They're talking about the church of the streets, and we all got the same beliefs. We grind until we can't grind no more."
"When people see you stand on that it makes them put you on high-regards, on a pedestal. That's the guy that grinded his way out of this, he can tell me how to do the same thing if I listen."
