Take What Is Yours

The Don, the Boss, El JEFE, El Patron mas feroz.
    Born and bred to relinquish the rules, exploit the fools, and elude the FEDs
   Andando sin cuerda en los calles de Medellin, Don Pablo nacio con hambre y
   sed "Pues Claro mijo, por que yo no soy ningun estrella bonito. I came to 
   conquer this world, an d steal from Los Ricos." He'd say, thus being his
   mission objective.

   Medellin, Colombian wasn't you're everyday plot of Land or tale of glory.
   Mountanous landscapes, alarmingly temptuous women, and love stories.
   Cocaine paid the drug Cartels en route to the most lucrative drug trade
    Escobar swore that he would dig his own grave, if he wasn't a millionaire
   by the age 22, so he stole and he killed with cold-hearted skill engraved
   into the Soul of a man possessed by El Diablo mas bravo que el Fuego.
   El nino Pablito, un nino de Cielo... Gano todos sus Exitos sin nada de miedo.

   Yeah, yeah, yeahh. He killed, he robbed, his thrill was the mob! So WHAT??
   He was a sick man, a smart man, could form a mile of sand into contraband.
   He was N-U-T-S. Pues si, claro caballeros, mas que todo Loco pero mas que
   nadien Astuto. He bought land, he bought planes, he negotiated business 
   just by the drop of his Name. I won't judge, and I won't budge, the fact is
    the man made so much money that FORBES had to nudge, he was rated.

    In retrospect, history teaches us many lessons concerning human behavior.
    You take a man from any walk of life and fill him with a tenacious Ambition
   and it won't matter how the chips fall, because if he isn't holding the Ace's
   he's strategizing to rig the deck of cards, already ahead of the races. Look,

   Im not the guy you puts these guys in cuffs, and I ain't the guy that honors
   this stuff, But I will tell you this -- Pablo Escobar understood something that
   the rest of the world won't, or can't. Fear in the presence of action can and
   will override ruling powers and force their submission. Lo llamaron un "Robin
   Hood", y El Patron De Mal. Indeed, he figured out a way to divide and Conquer.
