“This Is How We Do It”
While other rappers were portraying South Central L.A. as a gritty, crime-ridden place, Jordan's day-in-South-Central song had a friendly party vibe. "I could tell you stories about playing ball around the corner while The Bloods and The Crips were shooting, because I've been there," said Jordan, who grew up in a lower middle-class home there. "But that's not my story. My story is that even through all of the crap, that goes on in South Central, somehow I found a way to go to church and college." Jordan, who graduated summa cum laude from Pepperdine University, became a minister in 2010.
