"We out on the road enjoyin' our wealth
Around the globe our stories are felt
Cause I can do bad by myself
I'ma survive with my n*ggas help
My n*ggas gon' ride with no safety belt
Cause I can I do bad by myself..."
The time was 2006 and the institution known as the Diplomats stood at a peculiar fork in the road.
