Hear hip-hop tunes from gang members representing rival L.A. neighborhoods:
'Pickin' the Mics Up' by the Reputables
'On Crip' by the Holmes Street Watts Crips
'Cherryed Up' by the Neighborhood Piru
Members of the Bloods and Crips street gangs in Los Angeles put aside their feuding, at least temporarily, to represent their L.A. neighborhoods on a new CD and DVD.
It's still gangsta rap — filled with violent and sexist imagery — but gang members say the project is proof they can profit by getting along.
