“I don t wanna take my time going to work, I got a motorcycle and a sleeping bag and ten or fifteen girls. What the hell I wanna go off and go to work for? Work for what? Money? I got all the money in the world. I m the king, man. I run the underworld, guy. I decide who does what and where they do it at.
