"Kenya and his boys were tall , strong and wild . My boys and I were short and afraid . We waited for them to leave my dorm then they untied me and I rushed to the D hall . When I grabbed the mic I started my rap which was written by my rap teacher called laud Marcus . “Cocaine is like Cain and will bring u pain. Stop the drugs it will lead you to rugs. Too much abortion causes abomination and contraceptive is sometimes deceptive “ then they whole school went like “yeeeeeeeeeeeeeey ‘ by the way they used to call me “whiz kid”.
