What good is being a multimillionaire if you don't have your health?

Mickens now earns between $40-$150 per class.
and
"I'm not proud of what I did to my neighborhoods. I'm not proud of the pain I put my mother through," he said. Each session, "is like me giving back to my mother."

Assume a class is about an hour long, you're doing about 4 of them per day and you're averaging about $80 per class then you're looking at 80K for a 4 hour workday.  But you're also doing it for you mother which is the real reason, right?

Mental healths? Is that a Britishism like maths?

JasonOfOrillia: you're looking at 80K for a 4 hour workday


You're self-employed subtract 6.2% employer portion of Social Security
You're self-employed subtract employer portion of health care
You're self-employed subtract group health care and prescription discounts
You're self-employed subtract employer contribution to 401K
You're self-employed subtract holidays
You're self-employed subtract the days you don't have clients

How is charging people for a service 'giving back to my mom'? Does this douche think that working an honest job is some great and noble venture, some heroic sacrifice? It's what normal folks do while scumbags like him make the world shiatty for profits.

At least the cocaine had some redeeming value.

Columbia offer him a professorship?  Or is that only for female murder convicts?
 
2013-04-07 06:14:06 PM  
How many people did he have killed?

Agreed but at the same time there are people all over ruing the world on a trillion dollar scale but insead lets get the 50 million dollar drug dealer but not the guy thats setting him up or the people bombing families in other countries.

Seems like he might be getting in with the medical marijuana crowd?
 
2013-04-07 06:55:20 PM  
Damned if he does and damned if he doesn't, by this threads lofty standards. It might do some people good to know that they can make a good living and not live in abject poverty if they turn away from a life of crime.

Something like a phenomenon, baby.
 
2013-04-07 07:39:32 PM  
Why was this shiat even published?
"From that humble beginning..." What the fark? Is this guy Jacob Marley? As if  rolling 8 pinners of shwag and oregano then selling them to every other white kid that he didn't straight jack is somehow "humble".... The author like BBC.

One conviction should mean you are reduced to abject poverty for the rest of your life, preferably in the penal slavery system so we can eliminate more jobs outside of the prison walls.

Fewer jobs = less money for drugs, and so we solve the demand problem. We pay our prison guards what, $25K or so with no benefits? So even the jobs we create that way help solve the problem.

I like cocaine.

I think some people here are being overly harsh.  This is a guy who turned his life around.  Give him credit.
 
2013-04-07 11:31:24 PM  
I know a guy really well who went to prison for trafficking cocaine,  got out and currently runs a $20m / year construction company.

People gotta convince themselves their making amends.

had an anti drug speaker in high school tell us every speach he did was like putting back into his grandmothers purse.
also said he had been higher than anyone else in the room ever had been. I took it as a personal challenge. And I won.

he was a crappy anti drug speaker
