Maino, "My Hood"

Maino was one of the only MCs to address the shooting of fellow Bed-Stuy native Timothy Stansbury, the unarmed 19-year-old shot by the NYPD in 2004.

Please tell me how we 'posed to recover
When them gunshots
Touch more people than them songs from Usher
And it don't help seein' all my men get buried
We should've riot when them pigs killed Timothy Stansbury
