The World Is A Ghetto

Don't you know that it's true?

From BJ's MySpace page:

YOU READY? HERE WE GO JOE!! TAKE OLD SOUL + YOUNG GOD FEARING MAN, WHO GREW UP ON ONE OF THE MOST HUSTLIN'ST, CRAZIEST PARTS OF THE SOUTHSIDE CHICAGO, ADD THE PROBLEMS OF BEING A YOUNG MAN, FROM THE LADIES TO GETTING MONEY.

IN MY VOICE YOU HEAR THE SOUL. MADE FROM THE HURT, TEARS, LOVE, HUNGER, AND MOST OF ALL LONGEVITY, GROWTH + C.. LONGEVITY!!!

SOME SONGS DON'T SOUND LIKE SOUL BUT THE CONVICTION IN MY VOICE SAYS IT ALL.

I GIVE A LOT IN MY SONGS. I GIVE SWAGGA TO THE SWAGGALESS, I GIVE ADVICE: HOW TO GET HER, HOW TO MANAGE YA PAPER, HOW TO MAKE BAD SITUATIONS GOOD (MAKE IT RIGHT), AND SOOOO MUCH MORE. I'M THE 'OTHER' GUY,' 'THE SOLUTION' - I'M WHAT THE INDUSTRY HAS BEEN MISSIN!!! BUT I BEEN HERE!!!

THE GAME AND THE FACES OF THE GAME CHANGE BUT SOUL AND THE STREETS WILL STAY THE SAME!!!!!

BY THE WAY THIS IS NOT WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE, THIS IS WHAT IT IS!!!!!
