Gangbangin'



After "Dogtown & Z-Boys" and "Riding Giants" (huge movies on my opinion), Z-boy Stacy Peralta is going away from themes such skateboarding and surfing and he's directing the documentary "Crips and Bloods: Made in America". It's a film about the two infamous L.A. gangs. 
Forest Whitaker is the narrator and NBA superstar Baron Davis is a member of the production team.
Dunno if the movie is going to be released in Greece (probably not), but is already out in theaters in the U.S.
Here are some linx for further info on the movie, the Crips, the Bloods and street gangs in general.

And since this blog is about the music, i might as well add that members of the two gangs got together, auditioned and finally released a record called "Banging On Wax", as Bloods & Crips, in 1993. The following year they released another record, "Banging On Wax 2... The Saga Continues".
The second one is not that good, so i'll only provide y'all with "Banging On Wax" (@ 192kbps).

It's just another average west coast gangsta rap record, with late '70s and '80s funk samples etc.. Only these guys first killed and then sang, not the other way round..
Funny useless info: I believe the label that released the records is called Quality (ha ha).
