What’s it about?
Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot, he was not afraid to die, oh brave Sir Robin. He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways, Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin. Oh – there’s a different Robin?
Yeah baby – Robin da Hood – Original Gangsta (the thug life didn’t choose him) (actually it did) #OG!
