"Legacy | EMPIRE"

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

I started selling drugs when I was 9 years old. I did it to feed myself. But it was the music, the melodies that, that played in my head that kept me alive. It was the music that saved my life.  
I got some bad news. 
How long I got? 
I put my heart and guts into this company. I need one of you to man up and lead it. 
Don't forget me, baby. I want half my company back. 
Been living like a dog for 17 years. And now I want what's mine. 
I'm insuring a legacy and nothing or no one is going to tear it down.  
(Lyrics) We built this empire from the dirt to the top 
No apologies 
They will shoot me up
