I grew up around here. This is my hood! They know me. I used to sit on those steps and chill. Everyone knows me and knows that I chill. I miss my hood and I miss all my friends. I have seen some of my friends on Gran Varones. I’m in love with your work.
You know a lot of peoples that I do. I was like “Look at Gio! He is my heart.” I just called him because I know he is back from Florida.
louie: that’s my cousin
For real? He is my heart. I also saw people from my Travesuda (night club) days.
It was poppin’! I had my birthday party there with all of my angels. Too bad it came to an end. Anyway, I can’t wait to see my picture. Gran Varones!
