at what point are you accountable for your own actions though?
jojo's family being from queens you'd think he'd kinda know better but alas he's not a real street *****.
This is the mentality that keeps alot of hood ****** in the hood. At the end of the day, we're talking about JoJo Simmons here. Of course it was wrong for JoJo to talk greasy, but from Juelz perspective you gotta play past the small stuff and even the small ****** and worry about the big stuff. Be it Juelz running up on JoJo Simmons or Juelz having one of his boys run up on Juelz is foolish and truly unnecessary. That's like a grown man running up on an elementary school kid for talking trash, you gotta be smarter than that. You can't get off-set or rattled by every person that talks or says something slick about you. Not to mention, you gotta know who your messing with and in JoJo Simmons case your messing with the Simmons family and who JoJo is related to, not smart on Juelz end at all.
That's what I mean by looking at the big picture. Some people you address and put in their place, some people shouldn't even be worth your time and attention. That's how and why alot of ****** end up dead or in jail, worrying/fighting over petty things. Like Alonzo said in Training Day........"you let the garbage men take care of the garbage". A FRAUD like JoJo Simmons will and would eventually get his an in the end, just like any other FRAUD in the industry would get taken care of by the likes of a person or entity.........shot out to Reebok .
I understand what you're saying and it is most definitely true, but it's hard for most hood dudes to break that mentality because they've came up that way for a long time so it just becomes part of them.
A good example is being a hood dude and coming from a hood neighborhood and going to a pretty decent college. The change in environment and peoples personalities is so different and then when something does go sour if you're used to that hood lifestyle you quickly resort back to it against people who come from a well off background making you look like some monster or bully.
