4175, That is exactly what I noticed about New York,
Posted by MALACHI, Fri Sep-05-03 10:56 AM
the fact that there were a bunch of fairly tight-knit local crews. Kinda like in the movie "Juice". I know the crack game played a big factor in the spread of Crip and Blood "sets" spreading around the country, but I always figured that N.Y. had their own crews hustling strong enough to prevent any outsiders from doing business on their blocks. But if I am reading you correctly, there is really no connection between these N.Y. "Bloods" and "Crips" and the ones back in L.A. These kids are just latching on to bandanas and running wild. Dang, thats ALMOST AS BAD as letting niggas come and take over your block. Yeah I remember the days when the biggest knucklehead New York niggas looked down on gangbanging as the stupidest ish you could do...now it looks like they are jumping into it with both feet.
