CONTENT WARNING: The first line of this SEL Story 002 article mentions drug dealers sitting front-row at a basketball game.

  • This line is paraphrased from a primary source of information used for research in writing this article. It comes from a conversation between Troy Millings and Rashad Bilal with the hosts of the Guys Next Door podcast Episode #160

  • The host of the podcast says the following:

    “As a kid to see… Everybody knows, when you’re in the hood and you go to these tournaments, courtside is where either the old basketballers came - the old NBA dudes, or the rappers, or - most of the time, all those rappers and NBA players can’t come to all these games - it’s the drug dealers. Front row and centerbut when you look around the court and you see rapper, rapper, drug dealer, drug dealer,... and then… [these guys]”

    (Guys Next Door Podcast #160 at 32 minutes 32 seconds. Here is a link to the podcast on Spotify at 32:32 *language warning.)

  • For more context with additional quotes, please see the last page of the Preview PDF.
