In May 2015, my old schoolmate at "some high school" name Richard Matthews was murdered after being around the wrong people in the wrong place at the wrong time. We used to catch the bus together both to and from high school, and vice versa. Last time we seen each other was at Dunkin Donuts in September 2014 during the time of the 2014 Made In America festival. I never knew it would be my last time seeing him alive. I took my old classmate's death to heart because that could've been me being around the wrong people in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thinking about it now, there were times that came close of almost happening. The moral message behind this is watch the company you keep, watch your surroundings, and never take anything for granted because tomorrow is never promise. Had he been alive today, he would've been the next big rap artist from the Philadelphia scene like Meek Millz and various others. The late Richard Matthews will live on forever through a rap group he helped create, called C.R.I.M.E. which stands for Conscious Rebels Inspiring Modern Enlightenment.
