Jimmy Smith Jr.

  • Do you ever wonder at what point when you gotta just say "fuck it" man? Like when you gotta stop living up here and start living down here?
  • Who told you I was a "dope rapper?"
  • Ward, I think you were a little hard on the Beaver. So was Eddie Haskell, Wally and Ms. Cleaver.
  • You ain't the future of shit, bitch. You're just David fuckin' Porter.
  • If something needs to happen with this shit, it needs to happen now.
  • So what, at least I got a fuckin' job.
  • Mom, you gotta stop living your life like this.
  • That "Leave It To Beaver" line almost killed me.


  • You know what, do what the fuck you wanna do, 'cause I don't give a shit any more.
  • Free comes with a dick up your ass.


  • [Rabbit's car has just shorted out, the group is standing on the street while Rabbit is fixing the car] I ain't getting back in that pice of shit. It's a death trap/

Cheddar Bob

  • Fuck Cheddar Bob!
  • Fuck the free world!


Alex: It's almost beautiful.
Jimmy Smith Jr: When I was younger, I always wanted to live in a house like this, when it was used to be.

Jimmy Smith Jr; Future: [DJ Iz is rambling on about the abandoned houses in Detroit and Jimmy and Future look at each other all confused] What the fuck is he talking about?

Alex: to Jimmy So how come they call you rabbit?
Future: Cause he's fast and likes to fuck a lot.


  • Every Moment is a Chance to Turn it Around
  • Go back to where it all started.
  • Find Your Voice
  • Every moment is another chance
  • Lose Yourself In the Music
  • If the streets had a voice, this would be the story they'd tell.
  • Look, if you had one chance, one oppurtunity, to seize everything you ever wanted? One moment. Would you capture it? Or just let it slip?
