Another term that is used is Fetish here we have a bunch of men coming to this house to get sexual pleasure, and some of these men are daily customers which shows a sign of obsessive attraction to these ladies. Last but not least Lascivious is a term that was used with the connection between Violet and Belloqc, you see Violet indicated that she had some sexy interest in Belloqc by saying you can take care of me and saying she loved him and that she would be real good to him.

Not only did she misrepresent the culture, but Cyrus also becomes known and adored by many people for her style.

On the streets, everyone still knew me as Lil’ Roze, or even my new street name, K.A.S.H: King, assassin, scholar, hitman. I tried to live up to that name’s meaning through my lyrics, slaying MCs in hip-hop ciphers. We all had crazy rap names like that, and we would throw them around in heated rap battles. My big bro Luechy and I were considered the two best rappers on our block. Other legendary rappers at Robeson were Travie, Tray B, Tate Da Great, Glenn, and Harold G. During a lunchroom rap battle, we got a lot of attention from other students and teachers that were securing the lunchroom making sure we weren’t doing anything illegal, but the best rap battles were held after school.
This is the pair’s first daytrip together since 1996’s robbing the bank thriller "Set It Off" and don’t think “Girls Trip” doesn’t properly sneak in a reminder to that oldie.
