Awesome story, tune and message...

'Lifers Group were an American hip hop group that consisted of prisoners serving time at the Rahway State Prison in New Jersey. The objective of the group was to warn others about the reality of prison life, and the lives that they had lived prior to prison. The group consisted of nine lead emcees, and several other rappers and musicians. Members of the group served sentences of twenty five years to double life for crimes ranging from robbery to murder.

They released an EP titled #66064 in 1991 and an album titled Living Proof in 1993.'

    This was fire, I wonder what happened to the members when/if they got out of jail...

    Its interesting that they were apparently in Rahway prison and allowed to create a hip hop group and film music videos, because there was a boxer, James Scott who was also in Rahway that was allowed to carry on his professional career and actually have pro bouts in prison that were even televised on CBS and HBO haha
