“I’m innocent y’all, I’m so innocent… I’m good man. No more speed for me. I’m good…Technically there’s no proof I was going 155…I was in Ferraris so he had to go 155 to catch up to me but… that’s just what they said. There’s no proof… Yes the mugshot looks a little crazy. That’s because I was home, I wasn’t spposed to be out. A n***a didn’t have his hair braided. He was looking a little rough.”
