Deez Nutz In Your Motherfuckin Mouth Bitch

I was born and raised in St. Paul but I've been everywhere in this country and I can say MN ain't s**t!! Worst place in MN is the Northside/Southside Minneapolis.

I've been to Harlem, Philly, Brooklyn,L.A., Baltimore,Dallas, Miami, Memphis,Las Vegas, Detroit, Chicago, Fresno, Cleveland, both of the KC's and all these places are way worse than Minneapolis/st.paul, and the whole state lol.

We have it good in MN pretty much all the crime other than the cities are just a bunch of suburban m**h heads lookin to steal your car radio. But the killing is at a minimum in the whole state which is good but I hate how people say Minneapolis and st.paul is ghetto af because it's not.

It's a little ghetto but not nearly as bad as a lot of other places.

The weather s***s! It's now May, and we have snow up north-! Winters are freezing cold, summers are super hot with mosquitoes, the State bird! Taxes are ridiculous and the roads have potholes the size of Texas!

Stillwater is a beautiful city on the river, with lots of cute shops and restaurants, which is worth your trip!
