"Being a dad makes you change your whole life around. I used to be in the streets, too, man. I had four brain surgeries. I got shot in the head and everything. It took for me to have them to quit the streets. It motivated me to do better and stay in a positive mode. You know what I'm saying? It's challenges, every day, cause I got 5 kids by 4 different women. So, everyday it's a challenge. You gotta keep your mind in a positive perspective and you'll be able to make it. Don't give up, man. Most dudes give up on their kids, because of the issues between them and their baby mama. But you know, I'm trying to be a better dad than my dad was to me.  He wasn't there for me. My main goal is to be there for them as much as I can. So everyday I spend with them is a step closer then what my dad was trying to do for me. Like I said, I done had four brain surgeries. So, there have been times when I wanted to give up and come out here and sell dope and rob people or whatever. But when I look at my kids, bruh, I know that they deserve better. Like I said, most dudes overlook the life of their kids because of the conflict between them and their baby mama.  To a young dude with kids, stay focused, man. Stay on your paper and never get on your baby mama's bad side." - Charice, Russell
