Him: "Life has been a struggle for me, so I would say you gotta go for the gold. I'm a truck driver and coming from a broken home and being locked up, I gave up on life in general. Then I got my CDL and now I'm traveling the world."
Me: "What's the coolest place you've been to?"
Him: "California, definitely. And New Mexico. They got a very different lifestyle over there from New York. See, I was born in Harlem and left."
Him (Laughs): "New York is rough--it traps you. You get used to one lifestyle to live and die by. You got three options there: hang with the boys on the corner, go to prison, or die. The best way to do it is to get out, which I did. Now I live in North Carolina with my grandma. That's why you gotta go for the gold."
