Do the Crips have more integrity?

So, it seems like when a rapper/celebs wants to start banging it's almost always a blood set to give them a cosign/permission. Why is this? Are the bloods just smart to take a check when they can? Are they going to go the route of the Hell's Angels with merchandise next? Or are there just more blood sets? Do the Crips have too much pride to sell out? What's the deal do you think?

    I remember when everybody was Crip Walking on tv. It's just a phase.

    Yeah, being a blood really got trendy in the mid 00's. Birdman, Wayne, Jim Jones etc.... Game is one of the first 🤬 I recall blood'n in the mainstream outside of Suge, Bloods & Crips rap group in the 90's.

    The answer is yes they do!
    You have to remember the bloods started out as a victims. They were the cats that the crips ran through along with the light skint 🤬 the crips used to whoop on for not being all the way black.

    So hoe is in their dna. Not to say there arent trill criminals in both organizations but the bloods have always been an unruly lot business wise meanwhile there is more stability in leadership in the crip organization.....meaning u 🤬 up u have to answer to 🤬 more so than with the other guys.

    If Crips were the ones hot in the industry, they'd be selling co-signs too.

    I think it's a fad too with the popularity with rappers like Game, YG, Jay Rock. Even Kendrick is from a blood neighborhood. Although he don't 🤬 , he's somewhat associated. Vice showed this through that documentary "Bompton."

    According to my fam in LA, crip sets outnumber bloods 3 to 1, which makes sense because they were first. The bloods were formed by gangs who had beef with the crips. But they were just as dangerous because they had that "300" mentality. And there was not a lot of inner-conflicts. They make it seem like it's about blue vs. red, but there were a lot of crip gang vs. crip gang conflicts throughout LA. Every time you look up Snoop Dogg is trying to get gangs in Long Beach to stop beefing, and everybody is crips. A lot of beefs simply come down to what neighborhood you're from and who you grew up with, so it's not always about color.

    In the late 80's and early 90 a lot of rappers were associated with crip neighborhoods. "Menace II Society" and "Boyz N Tha Hood" were filmed in crip hoods. And if you look at "Boyz" they made the bloods look like 🤬 . LOL!

    But I don't think there's a lot of REAL blood gang members giving these dudes legit passes. They probably let these famous dudes hang around them for their $$$, if anything.
