The Third Person I Met in Lincoln

My friend is my interviewee and the reason why is because he was the 3 person I met in Lincoln. He was born in Harlem hospital in New York City. I met him about 5 or 6 years ago as his cousin brought me to his house. To find out he is a fan of Dipset due to the fact that one of the members is named Killa Cam a.k.a Cam’ Ron is his cousin and that is no lie. He is a representative of Lincoln projects who I am very cool with.

As I was talking to Derrick Coleman Jr. he said that his dreams are to become a rapper or just to make his name known. He told me that batman is his favorite superhero because he use his gadgets to f*** n***** up. He used the humor in our interview to make things great. Like when I asked him what is the funniest story that he could remember he said “when you used to have an anger problem” “like when you fought my cousin for calling you a little n****”.

I asked him who is the most important person in his life and he said “my uncle teddy”. Then I said I knew it because he cried when teddy was in the hospital. I asked him why he left New York to go to north Carolina for a year and a half. In which he answers as “my mother said that I was doing badly and she needs me to change my grades”. “But then I came back because I miss the hood and I miss my n******” “you know what I’m saying” This is my friend. The boy I have been chilling with for 6 years. As we grew up the thing that will happen is that we would always fight. But till he goes to college he is always the brother man from the sixth floor.
