Sara: That’s fucked up, first of all it’s not “shit” that’s my sister speaking the truth. If you can’t handle it, why don’t you watch Fox 5 where they speak the “truth”, like Bill O’Reilly, and get your news from there.

Last Prince: 1. 2. 1. 2.!!!!! Damn B, U ain’t even tagged in this clip don’t know how it is even on Ur page!!!! But like Sara says its the Truth!!! Guess some catz would rather remain in the dark!!!! But regardless, Peace 2 U B!!! And Keep doin’ Ya thang in the ‘Ville!!!!! I’ll be back @ the Crib Soon to get some of that MidWest footage!!!

Louis G.: keep doing your thing rayn..dont mind the haters…atleast you rapping about something real.. something you believe in..keep it positive always..fuck the negativity..do what you do..

Rayn: Thanx for the support, friends and fam! Just remember that I give no credence to strangers calling my work “SHIT.” Negative comments like these are just VAGUE and USELESS to me. They do nothing to constructively help me improve my craft, (nor were they meant to)! I tend to ignore them, unless they are highly offensive (which is not the case here)!

Last Prince: 1. 2. 1. 2. !!!! True Dat!!!
