Jun 7 - Stop Fakin,' Stop Biting: Tru Life Speaks on the Original Wankstas of New York
 

 
Deep down in the streets of Money Makin' Manhattan lies an enormous section of projects, drugs, and street life; known to most in NYC as the Lower East Side. In L.E.S there dwells many a lyricist, but none more determined and rebellious towards his fellow New Yorkers than the up-and-comer rapper Tru Life. His movement is based on the resurrection of New York hip-hop, and one of the things emphasized in his message is that NY cats replicating the West Coast lifestyle is corny; no matter how gangsta the Capital of America has always been, New Yorkers were never Bloods and Crips -- never.

In a recent interview on extravagangstaradio.blogspot.com, Tru Life lashed out at not the west coast (he actually credits Snoop Dogg for helping to launch his career), but at the cornballs right here in NYC for idolizing and imitating the gang-affiliated activity birthed from both the colors blue and red.

"n*ggas is trying to be in gangs calling themselves Bloods now, and Crips and all that. We don't rock like that man, this is New York City. We aint never gang banged in our life. n*ggas in L.A, their grandmothers is Crips, their grandfathers is Bloods... that's the way of life out there...that ain't our way of life, so I can't respect that sh*t over here. A n*gga telling me like...[I said to him] you 28, 29 years old and you calling yourself a Blood? You aint grow up like that!"

The multiplicity of gangs in New York City have been on the rise in the past few years, partially crafted by the popularity of both The Game and Snoop, who sashay patriotically in their gang-banging swagger -- swagger that has these cornball gang imitators running recklessly through the streets of New York.

Some advice to these New York rappers and street thugs guilty of this asinine crime: a lot of these rappers get rich and die tryin' to live up to their fabricated war stories, and "Boyz N the Hood" and "Menace II Society" are only movies. Realistically, that ish doesn't rock here in NYC.

I'm from Louisiana so I be wanting to know how it is other places and I ain't talking bout listening to no rappers but I'm talking the real street life in other cities cause most of the rappers are fake and ain't even from the streets but anyway I was watching Hood 2 Hood DVD when they were in Harlem and I swear that sh*t tripped me out when I seen that them n*ggas have Bloods and Crips in NYC.

That's how it is everywhere in the United States. That whole westcoast gang bangin' sh*t just fu*kin' exploded and reached out to everywhere. Other than L.A., the only other really original gang infested city was Chicago. Now we got little motherfu*kers down here claiming to be B's & C's. This ain't L.A., that sh*t is corny anywhere else. Down here in Florida, people got they own little cliques and sh*t, but the gang bangin' sh*t isn't that heavy (thank god.) We still got hoods, but we got G's instead of B's & C's.

new york always had gangs but i think what tru-life is saying is that n*ggas is acting like they came up like that. it was never n*ggas banging over colors and sets and sh*t like that. every hood in new york had there own gangs like im from south side queens and n*ggas in Lost Boyz(No it Not Just A Rap Group). the whole blood and crip sh*t does make us look bad but who's going tell these lil n*ggas that they ain't really bloods and crips outside of tru-life

In Jersey the sh*t just really popped off hard. It just started about 3years ago and when i say they go hard wit it they go HARD. Good 60% of people 16-30 bloods. 90% of the jails ALL bloods. Its stupid here cuz everybody wanna be bloods thats each block got they own name and they beef wit each other so it just turned on b's vs. b's just cuz callin yoself a blood is thing to do.When i say its crazy n*ggas gettin shot like crazy. If u can get yo hands on a trenton paper or they news u will see this sh*t is serious.
