no secret that Cash Money heads’ Lil Wayne and Birdman represent
a certain “gang affiliation;” seen in every photo-op, video shoot and
television appearance wearing red and sporting red bandanas. As some might let this slide in
belief that it’s a “style” or “fashion statement,” one Compton rapper
is taking offense.
Apparently, Lil Eazy-E (son of the legendary
Eazy-E), is sick and tired of the “fake
gangbanging” occurring in hip hop these days.
“First of all, let me start off by saying
much love to all my Crips, Pirus and Bloods out there that have lived and shed blood
for what they believe in and represent; but all this extra fake gangbanging
going on is really getting out of hand. I’m seeing this nigga Baby on 3 songs Blooding
and Li Wayne ‘soowooping’ at the awards. Enough is enough. This don’t have
nothing to do with them Blooding; if they was Cripping I would have the same
reaction,” Lil Eazy-E said via a
statement to DubCNN.
“Those of us that are true to this need
to stand up and say enough is enough. I got homies who are in jail, fighting
for their lives and homes who are RIP behind this thang. And for those fools
who are clowning and making a mockery of us; I’m telling you no more … This is
part of the problem as to why the West is not winning right now. These niggas
have taken our style and way of life and are destroying it. Well I have had
enough. For every action there is a reaction.”
