The word "gangster" has many different connotations depending on who you ask. Some envision bandanas while others think of faceless criminals. Nevertheless, there are a couple of good things that are constantly attached to that dubious noun; determination, smarts, respect and the control of your own destiny. 20-year old rapper/producer Young Capone epitomizes those aspects.
