Since Rick$ had a knowledgeable head on his shoulders and a great support system, he realized that being in the streets was for the birds and one important lesson was you can have the street mentality that will always protect you in this life but you do not have to participate in the activities because you will either be in jail or six feet under. After that, Rick$ focused on his education and athletics that allowed him to attend the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
