Esquire interview

World Peace talks about growing up in Queens, New York:

The City now is way different than it was back in ’85. Especially in Manhattan. Back then, in the late ’80s and early ’90s, it was definitely and heavily drug-infested. I can only ever remember how drug-infested it was when I reminisce about it. I remember in my neighborhood, people tried to come together and do good things. But I think a lot of people fed off the fact that we were struggling in my neighborhood and the best way for them to cope was drugs.
