Little Jacob: What made you come outta you own country, what ruined it for you?
Niko: War ruined my country, Jacob. One village fought another. Friends had to fight friends. Then, the West takes notice and you are watching your neighbor's house blowing up on the international news channel.
Little Jacob: Rhattid, Niko.
Niko: Why do you ask?
Little Jacob: I look at Badman and tink what could be turning him into the man he's becoming. He's being ruined, you know, Niko? He ain't the dread he used to be. He used to be righteous man, now him a bad seed. It de coke dat he's doing, you know.
Niko: Badman is putting coke in his spliffs?
Little Jacob: Nah man, he be selling it, and it making him gravalicious. De whole Jam dung getting greedy off a des coke money. It a turn dread against dread. Rastas be fighting one another, when they should be cotching and smoking de herb together. Badman included. We should be fighting Babylon, but instead we are fight one another.
Niko: I wish my country had an excuse as good as cocaine for their fighting. Sadly, is not the case.
Niko: What's going on, Jacob?
Little Jacob: Easy now, star, me worry about everything with Badman, you know?
Niko: Badman? Why?
Little Jacob: Him want to be inna de mafia business, big time rude boy, all de time want mash up de place and broke down de place, seen?

Niko: No - cocaine is a bad business, but this whole life is a bad business.
Little Jacob: Don't deal wit cocaine, everything end up fine. If I deal wit cocaine, everything end up raas clot mash up, seen?
Niko: I hear you.
Little Jacob: The world be a fucked up place, Niko. A place rammed up with fuckery.
Niko: Sure, Jacob, it is. What I have seen of it at least.
Little Jacob: Since you got to Liberty City, you meet anyone what wasn't crazy?
Niko: No one I liked. I might have robbed some sane people, but I did not stick around for conversation.
Little Jacob: Seen, Niko, you, me, Badman, we all crazy living de life we live.
Niko: Cops chasing us, gangsters trying to rip us off, it ain't an easy life, that's for sure.
Little Jacob: Maybe it's this madness, this crazy shit, that make de world go round. People say it be the rules, the laws that make the world work, you know? But maybe it ain't dat way. That's just Babylon keep a rasta down. That's just bucky massa hitting out backs, making de slave ship keep moving. That's just dem downpressors in grey suits, making us waste our life filling out forms and ting. Doing that shit instead of really experiencing the world, the spiritual side. That's that shit that's shutting down life. Crazy rastas like I an' I, we don't listen to Babylon. It us a keep de world moving and jamming. Is us, and we make de world I-tal. We give the world it's life and it's madness, you know.
Niko: Sure, I think you could be onto something there.
