"I really ain't been in trouble in my life. I got six older brothers that have been through court and jail. I ain't saying I'm an angel, but I don't do nothing major. I've had six good examples of what not to do. My mother, I try to give her a break. I don't go out and start fights -- well, sometimes I do -- but I just like getting high and mellowing out with my girlfriend, you know.
Every Cambridge cop knows me. 'That's an Owens. He's trouble.' But I don't want no record. I'd like to come out of school and do construction, heavy machinery, bulldozing -- shit like that."
