    I have also just dropped a new clothing line! Its called Crip Crease! Its an urban professional apparel! Also its made to camoflouge u on all ur drive by’s! I introduced it in Niccerson Gardens a blood strong hold! I was spray painting a bloods name on the wall and they thought it was a ghost! I even smacced a member standing there amazed! 1 more thing, The real reason Chris Brown beat the shit outta Rhianna was B4 @ the Crip Pre-Grammy party he asked her “gimme some red Kool Aid” I said “nigga its Blue and thats it!!” Rhianna started to laugh and gave him some Code Red Mountian Dew. I let take the 1st sip right as he put the bottle on his lips for the 2nd sip I immediatly went in on his hoe ass and smacced the shit outta him! it got all over his suit! Rihanna laughed so hard she forgot she was supposed to get me off after my 11pm drive by in Inglewood later that night! ECG-UNIT CRIP 4 LIFE SPIDER LOC 4 LIFE!!!
