Allen By Allen Iverson

"I was still that same boy, Allen, from Newport News. And like I said: growing up, all I had wanted EVER was to dress like those older kids on my block. Those kids from my hood who had almost that grown swag, who had that “carrying around” type money, and who could buy themselves some real boots, real jeans, real sweatsuits, and this and that. It’s like — if you were rocking the right fitted, the right throwback, before anyone else you knew could cop it? O.K., now that right there is status."

MK - Allen Iverson is from the same hometown as me: Newport News, VA, which is part of Hampton Roads. Home to Pharrell, Pusha T (Clipse), Michael Vick, Missy Elliott, Timbaland, etc. Where I learned to #hustle
