When I graduated from college I had a case pending and that, along with my rest of my criminal history, left me virtually unemployable. Can you picture that? Employers said I was a "liability" (which in my opinion, is far worse than ever being called lame) and they couldn't risk it. The situation was similar to the sentiment Kanye raised in the classic "Through the Wire"- it's bad enough I'm judged because of my skin but to be a criminal too...bruh. Anyway, I became depressed. There were a lot of dark nights where I raced, sprint-style, to the bottom of bottles and I burned a lot of bridges. BUT, my friends, joy does come in the morning and look at me now! *
