Lil Sodi and Bigfase 100, created a project “The Best Of Both Rags”, which is a reference to the bloods (red rags) and crips (blue rags). The project is identical to the 1990s, Bloods & Crips (rap group), which was a collaboration between real-life Bloods and Crips.
Feud With Nipsey Hussle
In 2010, Lil Sodi insulted Nipsey Hussle (“F**k Nipsey”) and the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips (“we don’t like sissies”) on “Hard In The Paint” (remix), a song originally recorded by Waka Floka Flames. In 2013, Nispey Hussle retaliated on “Same Hoes” (“Your p**sy getting beat up like Sodi”), a song off OKE (Operation Kill Everything), a mixtape by Compton rapper Game.
