ESPN‘s Highly Questionable is having one helluva week.
On Monday, Fat Joe made an appearance on the show and revealed that Anthony Mason was the Knicks player that Biggie was referencing on his classic “I Got a Story to Tell” track. And today, the team got a chance to sit down with Metta World Peace to speak to him about growing up in Queens, New York and joining the NBA.
World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, opened about his rough childhood which included living with 17 people in a one bedroom apartment and learning how to cook crack at 13-years-old.
“That was something I’m not proud of, obviously.But it was something that was introduced to me at an early age,” he told hosts Dan Le Batard, Bomani Jones, and Papi.
World Peace even recounts the scariest moment of his life, when he flushed drugs down the toilet upon realizing that the cops were knocking on the door. In addition, he shared how his cousin lived right next door to Mobb Deep.
Watch the the rest of the interview up top as World Peace tells the stark reality of his stint with the Chicago Bulls and other teams.
