Kurupt says that he did not participate in the Los Angeles riots of the 1990s. However, he and fellow West Coast rapper Warren G did go see the events firsthand.
“We’s at Dr. Dre’s house watching it on television and Warren G was like, ‘Hey cuz, let’s go into the street,'” Kurupt tells VladTV. “We went into the jungle. That was the first time Bloods walked up to me and was like, ‘What’s up, Kurupt, Blood? Man, I fucks with your shit.’ I was shocked, like, ‘Damn.’ I was accepted in the jungle. They came and said hi to me and shit.”
“Now it ain’t even about whether it’s white or black or it’s the police,” he says. “What it’s about is, there’s too many incidents. The incidents are the problem. But see there’s so many incidents that ain’t been recorded, that ain’t touched the airwaves.”
Kurupt says that he doesn’t drive anymore because he has been victimized by the police, too.
“I’d rather put my brother to drive, somebody else who has better luck than me,” he says. “Police don’t never pull cuz over, Ima roll with cuz. ‘Here take this cheese.’ I’ll roll with cuz. Me driving, though? They pull me over every fucking time. ‘Why did you pull me over?’ ‘Uhhhh’ Racial profiling.”
