Flint is definitely tough.

I know I mentioned Bridgeton in my above post. I forget which year, maybe '05 or '06? They were #1 in Jersey in crime per capita. My grandmom lives in Vineland and I'm there a lot. That's where I meet all my Puerto Rican girls

Detroit, Michigan.

Terrible weather, unemployment rate that is over 20%, never ending construction on the roads, and perpetual top 3 most dangerous city in America. And that's been since the 70's. They'll tell you crime has declined, which it has, but that's simply due to the fact that before the riots there was bout 2 million people living in the city, and it's declined every year since. Present day there's 800,000 and some change.

They say a desperate man is a dangerous man, well you got about 800,000 of em here waitin for you. Niiggas can enjoy gettin money for a very short period of time in the city before they are shot and killed. Unless they relocate out the city quickly. Big Meech himself will admit to you that he rarely came back to the hood after he got bread, because it's so much jealousy and hatred in this city, that you're always a target.

HP, Del Ray, Brightmo, deep eastside like 6 and Chalmers, the Herman Gardens and the Jeffries are/were all terrible. When the government deems the projects uninhabitable and demands that they're demolished, you know they're pretty ****ty. And yet the giant vacant space where the Herman Gardens once stood is still empty with no plans for development, over 10 years later. That's the whole story of this city, it's ready to be torn down, but for what? There's no plans for future development, and it costs money to demolish it, so they just let it rot and decay.

But yet I can handle the hood. It's the other things that make it such a terrible place to live. The perpetual cycle of drugs, violence, and poverty is expected, and dealt with accordingly. The cold long ass winters, the bleak gray days, the lack of jobs, the jealousy and envy, all wear me out more than the actual violence. It just exacerbates the situation and changes the outlook from bleak to grim to basically hopeless.

I think it goes something like this..

Detroit
Camden
Flint
Oakland
St. Louis

Of the two I've been to and REALLY experienced... Detroit is a place you don't even want to be in the non-awful parts of the city.. Flint is the birthplace of the "flintsones" of michigan state Mateen Cleaves, Morris Peterson, and Charlie Bell. So it's AOK with me (minus ever wanting to touch foot in that *****hole of a city).

the Mexican Drug Cartel violence there is so bad that police chiefs have quit, the police can't even handle them at all, they are completely out gunned, and now the FREAKIN ARMY has to come in...

If your "hood" needs the army...then yeah, things are really f*cked up...
