I never associated music with murder until rap got big in the 90’s. Not into rap and never really was but I’ll admit I liked Nas and Wu Tang a little bit for like a year when I started smoking weed in high school. Ludacris was ok. As an adult though… rap just annoys me. Hate it. I don’t hear music when I hear rap. Its nothing like rock, jazz, blues, country etc… to my ears.
Anyway… wasting time on youtube I hear of all these rappers that rep street gangs getting killed. A few high profile ones in Chicago.
How big and organized are these gangs the rappers rep? The mob never seemed to like being in the spotlight and I don’t think the cartels do either. How is having high profile rappers rep your gang good for your gang’s money making ventures? It makes no sense to me.
This one Chicago rapper FBG Duck got shot on two different occasions and was still a rapper in Chicago before he died the 3rd and final time he got shot. He also put song out dissing tons of dead rappers associated with other gangs, how is that smart? Seems it was a no brainer he was gonna get killed.
I get why gangs are a thing but I don’t get why gangs have rappers who “rep” them. Just seems laughable to me.
