Metta World Peace grew up in Queensbridge, New York, the same projects that gave birth toNas and Mobb Deep. The basketball legend, born Ron Artest, discusses his childhood in an appearance on ESPN’s Highly Questionable yesterday (May 18) and is asked to share his scariest moment from the hood.

“One day I was at my cousin’s house and Mobb Deep, the Rap group, they used to live next door, same floor,” he says. “So my cousin, they was cutting up the crack and everything, police start knocking on the door. I was about to flush the drugs down the toilet. My cousin was like, ‘Yo, don’t flush the drugs. That’s a lot of money. It was a lot of money.’ I was like, ‘Yo, we gotta throw the drugs away or throw it out the window.’ So that was scary because my cousin was trying to save the drugs. Hopefully the police leave and I’m just trying to not get arrested. I was about 13 years old at the time. But the police left. Gratefully they left. It was a tough situation.”
