  2. Dear Colin,
    I would like to submit a new word to the Cambridge dictionary.
    Street god – (noun)
    – a drug boss; the ultimate leader of a major illegal pharmaceuticals operation who had reached drug kingpin status; the head of a thriving drug hustling enterprise.
    Usage – That dude Daylight used to be a street god – all the drugs used and sold in an entire territory led back to him.
