I hope that Ishmahil and the others are released soon.

  2. let me just say, he ermm, seems to be connected, he gives me that impression, like there is more than meets the eye with him, anyway, seems like he was trying to do a good deed here, so I hope he gets back in one peace.

    I guess I just can’t get past the Bang bang.. doc, certain ppl in there are not the sort of ppl you just find in the hood, and ask for an interview lol, you have to know somebody, who knows somebody, you know them way there.
