There are people who pretend to have interest in your movement but the truth of the matter is they only care about themselves and how you can help them. See, I’m no fool! Game peeps game. I know your type. It doesn’t phase me in the least bit. Just how I was needed for a moment to get what you needed done accomplished… though you didn’t know it… You where the same for me.

I needed quick exposure to a new kind of crowd. I needed to get my name back in the world, and you needed a nice young diva who had a voice and plenty attitude to be a conversation piece for your showcase. That was fine. See, I already knew who I was and what I had to offer. It was you who was new to me. I may be young but this is a world I know all too well.

you were impressed by me. My talent, my professionalism but most of all my connections. You didn’t know a little girl from the bronx could have such numbers in her hd2 T-Mobile phone. LOL.. Hm… I had you shitting in your pants over the phone.

when you discovered my connect had no interest in you I was tossed to the side. But, that’s fine with me. The whole time you thought you were milking me I was milking you. I was talking to your team and watching your every business move. I learned how your set up was and I found flaws in your whole camp that I kept saying I would never have in mines. I played the fool but the actual fool was you.

It’s easy for me to be loyal but its also easy for me to scoop out an individual who does not deserve it and that is who you were. you did not deserve it. So, I drained your vision for all I could find and from that perfected mines.

Thank you dearly… My human stepping stone!
