-------------

In this clip, Malik Yoba speaks on growing up on the Eastside of Harlem during the crack and heroin era of the 1970s and '80s. He recalls his father helping care for addicts as an x-ray technician, while noting that he worked out of a basement of a building that was used for a scene in New Jack City. Later on, he mentions that he grew up with Dame Dash and Jim Jones as neighbors with Black Rob down the block.

Elsewhere in the clip, he reflected on crossing paths with Azie Faison and Alpo, notable drug dealers who the movie Paid in Full was based on. With that said, he noted that he didn't personally know either of them. Later on, he also revealed that despite his father vowing to keep his kids out of the streets, he did at one point work for a few hustlers in the city.
