Jim Jones also took the stage for a brief set featuring a rendition of his current hit, “Pop Champagne.”  Simmons, Bow, LL and Liles, among a few others, briefly interrupted the partying to drop a few words of wisdom.

“I wanna make sure everybody here to puts their arms around another person and encourages them to vote to help this come to fruition,” Uncle L told the crowd. “I think hip-hop has been a huge part. From Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five helping to bridge the gap…And I just know on November 4th. We’ll accomplish our goal.” -Bruce Moses

    I has this bitch Russell Simmons under serious extortion like Blair Underwood on Crush Groove I said, “Don’t make me bring you to ur knees Russ.” He personally is a bitch! I remember during my Crip award proceding he was scared to death of coming to LA in fear of my status as Elite Crip. I remember when I smacked the shit outta Vince Carter during the Crip Basketball Tournament in LA 4 Yrs ago. It was because he had Red shoelaces and that is a No No in Watts! Tyrese had to pull me off his big 6’7″ ass. He later apologized and begged for a trade outta Taronto because we have a Crip Hub Up there we had him extorted for $140.00 per month! Spider Loc is my cousin and he can vouch for me! I am 2 time Junior Crip of the year and I rep, Spooktown, Fronthood, ECG-UNIT, Grape St, Kelly Park, Paybacc, & Duce 9 Allie Crips! American Gangster Monster Cody is scare of me, I’m little monster

    ignorant shit

    • 619

      N.Y. control the rap game? You been under a rock since the millenium hit? Or maybe since B.I.G. died? N.Y. bloods, piru, and crips making money because they copied them off of Cali, so how you gonna hate on us by trying to prove a point with organizations you bit off us without anybodies approval or say-so. Ignorant shit, on some N.Y. bias hatin’ on Cali. That’s why N.Y.’s losin’, because you mafuckers always hatin’ everything the South and West does instead of building up your own original shit. XXL does the same shit. Crooked I getting a bad mixtape rating, but Amil gets a hood rating? What the fuck? You mafuckers putting pride ahead of keeping it real.

      Oh yeah, and as far as that new york bloods and pirus comment goes. “Real” Bloods and pirus don’t exist in New York. I see a lot of cats in New York false claimin’ or promotin’ fraud off brand versions of Blood and piru gangs in Southern Cali. I’ve seen New Yorkers claimin’ TreeTop Piru and Bounty Hunters, but nobody in Compton or Nickerson Gardens will vouch for them. And just recently I saw N.Y. claimin’ 5/9 Brims, the set that I grew up in. They don’t even exist in N.Y., so why are they claimin’ it? Understand that when someone from Cali sees these things they laugh at how fraudulent it is. N.Y. mafuckers bangin’ the number 5 and yellin’ blatt. None of that is Blood culture.
