(AllHipHop Rumors) Joey Badass is one of the best that New York has to offer when it comes to Hip-Hop. He is remarkably talented and smart. But, is there reason to be concerned? On a new remix, he seems to be claiming Crip. “East side ni##a, Ima get it off the rip…I be moving round with them 8-Trey Crips,” he says on the remix of “Bounce Out Wit That.” And then he does the thing Crips do and says, “CUH-Riiiip!” Listen for yourself.
Now, if you don’t know – street tribes or GANGS – are all the rage now. Everybody in Hip-Hop is doing it now. On the West Coast and some other places, its pretty common, but NY – not so much. This is a far cry from the Black Spades and other gang factions back in the 70’s. These are COLORS – red and blue. We have Cardi B, Tekashi69 and more pushing that brand. There are a number of street level emcees that rep that Blue, but I am thinking…this is weird!
I am open to listen to reason why one of the most “woke” rappers in the game is now potentially a gang member.
Is he being extorted?
Does he need protection from unseen street forces?
Is 45 after him since on the last album he said “F##k Donald Trump!”?
Can we expect a song with Jeezy on the famous Crips’s last album?
