“Everyone else is probably gonna quote one of his crazy bars (he got so many I don’t even know where to start. Literally Every bar was quotable) Real s**t tho one of my favorite lines was “Tears in my eyes when thinking of hexmurda.” (from “FIGURE FOUR”)
“Because within the humor and witty lines he was known for he would still sneak in some real s**t like that . That meant a lot to me when I heard that line. Life is about balance. We all know P knew how to make u laugh, and when the time was right, for just a brief moment, he knew how to make u cry.” – Dj Alchemist
