Why is Soopafly singing about crippin ??
« on: June 22, 2003, 07:05:33 PM »
Had a relisten to Eastsidaz "Duces 'N Trayz" today, and for once listened to the track "CripHop", even though I usually skip it.

In the chorus Soopafly sings about "That reeeeeeel Crip-shiiiit"
I thought Soopafly was neutral ???
And in so case, why is he bitchin about Xzibit being a fake crip, if he's doing the same himself... ?

Either Soopafly is a Crip, or he's a hypocrit.
Anybody know if he's a crip ?

soopa don't bang, he said so in the dubcnn interview.  He is just surrounded by affiliated friends and family.  He just reps it cause dogghouse/dpg is all about crippin.  Every member reps crips, but they don't all bang.

I grew up in Long Beach and nah, I wasn't a gang member. Just had family in

I sware he said somethin about bein a crip in one interview, talkin about if he saw Kurupt he'd sock him out on crip or somethin.

But shit Latoya Williams ain't a crip either but she's singin about it.

its one of those things where he wasn't in a gang ie rollin 20 crips, but his family was in it and basically his hood was crip he just didn't bang an actual gang............i actually had played basketball with some dudes from up here that were from a crip hood and had family in it and shit, they weren't bangin but they more or less repped crip and beat some cats ass that was claimin blood at a party

Same thang, Xzibit said in interviews that he grew up around crips too..
I guess Soopafly is one of those people mellowman spoke on:

xzibit got a lot of hate from a lot of people who had no clue about anything that was actually going on.

coz soopa had family & friends that were in gangs, and he hanged with them, but never joined a gang.
so i guess when you hang with and are down with crips,.. i guess you can represent crip.
seems fair enough to me

So Soopafly is a crip in one interview, but not in other interviews..  ???


I know i'm being dumb as fuck (i've been  8) alot) but where on Restless does Xzibit rep crip on the album? Don't say Get Your Walk on because he don't on that song.

There you go:

My transcript number one up in this conference
It's nonsense, all y'all niggaz want is conflict


BUSTED!
Actually, he doesn't say it once on Restless, except from the "Get yo walk on"-thing.. and he had some people C-walking in his "Get yo walk on"-video, but not himself as far as I can remember.
