  1. SAD! Freeze was my favorite rapper from the banging on wax tapes. I think he was one of the realest cats to ever spit it as in a interview that I seen. He was describing the not so glamourous side of ganging banging of having nightmares of the activitys that one had to participate in when linked with a gang. RIP FREEZE

    • I never really see people actually talk about the not so ‘glamorous’ sides of bein in a gangs…..If only my man would have understood wat he had gotten himself into, he would have never got shot…..but some niggas don’t really know wat they gettin theyself into until itz too late…..

      • That’s because Niggers are stupid and ignorant and are born to kill another Nigger. That’s their main mission in Life. The Nigger’s worst enemy in Life is ANOTHER NIGGER.

      • crips are niggers who all hate each other. crips are killed by crips way more than by any nigger blood set.
        it’s all nigger against nigger just like that honky rocco keeps saying. he’s correct.
