Crips And Bloods Doc Hits Theaters, Snoop & Lil Wayne Co-Sign

QDIII, the man behind the Beef DVD series and Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel, recently released his latest project, Crips and Bloods: Made In America, an award- winning documentary about two of South Los Angeles’ most notorious gangs.

Along with QDIII, who is credited as an executive producer, the film has several other big name producers connected to the project including NBA player Baron Davis and Jessica Alba’s husband Cash Warren, among others. Directed by Stacy Peralta (Dogtown & Z-Boys) and narrated by Forrest Whitaker, the film is currently opening up across the nation in select theaters.

Playing in New York’s IFC theater until tomorrow (Jan. 28), the movie will then travel around the country to screens in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland.

Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne recently went on the record to endorse the flick. “This movie is showing us that we need to stop doing what we doing and become one and start doing for each other because they’re taking everything away from us slowly but surely,” Snoop said. [Watch Below]

“If you watch this and if you don’t watch this just know that it is serious and it is important,” Wayne added.

    All these niggaz like Lil wayne especially need to stop it. Lil Wayne you are NOT A BLOOD. Snoop Dogg, I am a little disappointed with you too. First off let go on about the molested victim Lil Wayne; this motherfucker is a blood since when. Stop it , he pop the hood and get enough money for body guards then all of a sudden he is a blood. I never understood people who joined street gangs at such a late age, do you have an identity crisis or something. Lil Wayne and punk pussies like Jennifer Jones I meant Jim Jones are to take a lot of blame for keeping our youths mislead and lead astray with this foolishness. I wish lil wayne and Jim jones a violent and terrible outcome because of all the minds they set in the wring direction. fake ass gang members are the worst. Why would you promote something like that. fuck ass niggaz. Fuck lil wayne, and I got love for real B-Dogs and Hogs that do it to survive not because it is fashionable, I wish you real niggaz a way out that maze of violence.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    Props to QD3, a talented record producer and even more talented director. Here is a guy who could have lived off his fathers trust fund (Qunicy Jones), but starting with the music to Fresh Prince of Belair, carved out a nitch for himself in the music game, producing tracks for Tupac and Ice Cube, then moved on to the dvd game with the popular series BEEF and now this.. Good shit.

    Waynes kisses other men in the mouth.

    I live in los angeles, & like any nigga out here, gangs are a prevailent part of life. You can’t help to grow up around that shit. There’s basically no escape, only a choice.

    As for Snoop, he chose whatever he did, made it out, & although I don’t condone him still signin off on bangin, he does make attempts to inform the youth that his life isn’t to be mimmicked. So, I’m kinda meh on his standpoint. But @ least dude is tryin. He should understand the severity of the situation, so if he took the responsibility to hurt people & things of that nature, the least homie can do is repair the damage or prevent it from gettin worse. Fuck cosignin a flick, hit the community on a grassroots level & talk to these impressionable youths about real life, not some “scared straight” bullshit. & he needs to start with Dwayne Carter’s ass.

    Lil Wayne, that cat is just a hodgepodge of American culture. Obscure confusion, to say the least. I can’t respect a grown man choosin to gangbang when its not necessary. All the gun/drug, “find ur mother” talk is fine for entertainment purposes, but red raggin without reason serves no purpose. This nigga has the world in his palm, & this is the best he can teach the children. As a responsible african american, I’m ashamed of this kid. Its fuckin pathetic, & his gangbangin is fraudulent. I don’t even suggest he talk to the youth until he addresses his bathroom mirror. He can’t tell me shit. He can’t tell my son shit, except how to pretend bang & claim a set bcuz it’ll bring popularity & females. Idi-fuckin-otic.

    I agree the problem needs to be dealt with in a relatively quick manner, but I don’t think a movie is gonna be any type of resolution. It starts @ home with the family, until that issue is corrected, these kids are gonna continue to float aimlessly, bumpin their heads until its under a headstone.

    This shit aint no fuckin rap song, no fuckin movie, & no goddamned joke. Hopefully QDIII’s point isn’t muted by wanna be community activists & retarded recording artists.

      ^^^ I co-sign everything you said. It’s good that your raising your son too . . .I just hope he doesn’t start claiming colors. God forbid he Hcliams the “Pink” side like his father.

      That’s real as shit.

  • giantstepp

    Im from DC and in this area we’ve never had a real gang problem. Neighborhoods would stick together, roll together etc.,but it was never on the level of LA or The Chi and niggas didnt really consider themelves gangs. No colors or signs, no leadership etc. We are from a certain Hood, we stick together, simple as that. Ive heard of Bloods being in this area now, particularly in MD but Ive yet to see any concrete evidence of Blood activity or influence. I think the DC area is probably the final frontier in the country for national gangs to become active.

    • DETROIT

      in most cities such as dc and detroit, the crews that were already there become folks, bloods, etc. it’s not like la niggas invade every city…it’s more like already existing crews decide to ride under a star or color. it really makes no difference in the overall crime rate tho!

  • i am legend

    Shootin some 1 over a color is the dumbestmost misguided shit i ever heard of im a native of dc. northwest to be exact and we aint on that shit it be block beefs from confrontations from older generations that just carry on that shit is stupid 2 me as well at the end of the day these caucasians is laughin at us all.

    • DETROIT

      “Shootin some 1 over a color is the dumbestmost misguided shit i ever heard of”

      i feel you, but ask yourself this…what do american soldiers do? do they know the people they shoot? I THINK NOT!

  • http://xxlmag.com $hawty Reg

    Like a man tho….i usually be on Wayne side and comment on u hatin (truth tellin)azz niggaz, but i can’t even stick up for homie on this one.

    “The Bloods and Crips tried to establish themselves in New Orleans, but were all killed off one by one”, History Channel’s Gangland, the New Orleans/Gotti Boys episode

    Look it up, i’m not reppin its the truth!

    504 niggaz represent Wards and the niggaz we came up with! I don’t kno about no gang shit unless I missed something growing up!!

  • DETROIT

    First of all, I DO NOT SUPPORT GANG BANGING! that being said, sometimes the people commenting on this site define the term “SMART DUMB NIGGAS”.

    1. If you grow up a banger, then you’re a part of that gang for life. take snoop for example, before he was a star, his set held him down. this nigga caught a murder case for killing a blood that tried to run up on him AFTER he was a star. regardless of how we see dude, he IS and will always be a crip! simply because there will always be blood niggas, and rival crip sets, that want his head! telling a nigga that grew up bangin to stop reppin the set when he’s grown (because he is rich) is like telling a left handed person to become right handed at the age of 21!

    2. DUNNO BOUT LIL WAYNE!

    3. America is gang bang central. Repubs vs. Dems, north vs. confederate south, etc. all that shit is gang bangin….complete with flags and colors! How many people do you know that vote demcrat or republican just because? but when a nigga does some shit, it’s all of a sudden STUPID AS FUCK! all ya’ll niggas seen “The Godfather”…was that a discrace. it focused on italian “gang bangin”. how bout “saving private ryan” which focused on world wide bangin. but instead of shittin on them…you shit on a doc by a black man made to educate the black community BEFORE YOU EVEN SEE IT! self-hate is a crazy thing!

  • DETROIT

    one last thing….

    gangs are not the problem…crime is! togetherness is actually a good thing! if you look at the united states crime stats, there’s no correlation between gang banging and murder/crime rate. a lot of the top crime cities don’t really have a set trippin problem!

    i just looks more sinister when a nigga kills a nigga wit a rag on his face…but in the end, it’s the same result in la as it is in new orleans and dc…another dead nigga!

    • giantstepp

      Co-sign Detroit! Although I said in DC we didnt have an organized gang problem, the crime/murder rate would suggest we did. Although LA niggas dont invade most cities and establish the gang idenity, I believe there were a few cities where they actually did. St. Louis and the upper northwest had direct influence from LA niggas being present. As you said tho, most dudes take it on in there prespective cities under the banner of the national gang.

  • CAPT. OBVIOUS

    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE “GOD” OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!

  • miles archer

    Do we really need ANOTHER movie on this subject.
    How many more times you gonna tell me the Tookie Williams/Raymond Lee Washington story?
    Or “Slippin:Ten Years with the Bloods”.

    Enough already.

    Oh, and yes, I live in L.A. so save yourself the time stressing me how real this shit is. I know how real it is. I’m around it everyday. ‘Just tired of ya’ll beating a dead horse by telling me the same shit over, and over, and over…

  • truuth

    if i recall wayne been reppin bloods check juvie’s back that ass up video wat does he have red flags on check the bling bling video red flag and i think he had red flag in the block is hot video to so yall talkin do some research first

    • NAWLEDGE

      Yeah truuth, you may have a point.

      But as I recall, Wayne was also wearing blue hats and bandannas in almost every hot boy vid. Bloods wear blue now? Not only that, every time he had a red flag in his pocket it was on the left side. I thought that was the Crip side. Isn’t the Blood side on the RIGHT?

      Do your research also, my man. This guy was didn’t become a Blood until it became fashionable.

      Peace.

  • http://xxlmag.com $hawty Reg

    Red is the color Uptown niggaz and East niggaz wear people….That’s why all them niggaz use to wear red except Mannie Fresh b/c he is a Downtown nigga (7th ward)

    If you’re gonna do research, don’t watch old CMR videos come to the N.O.

    • NAWLEDGE

      All of them were wearing BLUE in thier old vids man. If red is the color of Uptown niggas, why the hell would they wear blue in their video?? I dont know about you, but that shit sound supspect to me.
