IAm Compton explains the Black Ink Compton theme song, ‘I Do What I Want’

Though we only ever hear a small sample of the whole track on the show itself, the Black Ink Compton theme song has gotten a ton of attention since the VH1 hit’s debut.

The story raised enough alarm that Bobby’s lawyer put out a statement saying that none of that was true.
