”My verse was inspired by people who I grew up with who fell victim to this kind of life. I mean, I have peers that couldn’t make it out like I did. I know people who found out they were positive and they suddenly had to think about their life in a different way. So It was easy to come up with this verse because I could relate”- Nasty C
