I made several million dollar deals in my lifetime, but none of them was as important as this chapter in my book; ‘The Biggest Deal I Ever Made’. – – – My transition from the streets to entertainment was by far one of the best decisions I made in my life. – – – If I had not made this oath with God I believe I wouldn’t be free or alive to speak about this today. – – – I believe ‘street’ guys are some of the most brilliant people in the world, so don’t be afraid to apply that same hustle in corporate America. You’d be amazed at your success. Street translation: It’s the same shit, different toilet. – – – 🎥: (@babyfacenemo) – – #TheArtAndScienceOfRespect #jprince
