Where i’m from by Willie Perdomo sits with me. I reminds me of Oakland in so many ways. Fourth of July shooting, people on blocks telling stories all of it. Oakland is in a rut but you should find the good in something anything. I’m not shooked other places experiences losing somebody to some form of violence because its life. But it doesn’t have to be.
