      This is mickey factz father. All you haters need to grow up. Don’t tear down a young man who is trying to make it in the game. There is enough room for all of us if we will just help each other. Don’t hate – congratulate! Appreciate! Elevate! My son got this deal through hard work and talent. Lets lift each other up. Don’t be crabs in the barrel who pull down the one trying to make it out. Each one, Lift one!
