Both wore green shirts and unlike Will Smith, they never flipped their bills.
They started to sang, “In Happy Valley, Oregon, livin’ it wed, bought our first house and started to build our homestead,” Melissa rapped.
“Our family and friends, who were up to no good, started asking questions about my parenthood.”
