L.A. Street Gangs Join Forces for Hip-Hop CD

From 'Rep Yo Set'

Hear hip-hop tunes from gang members representing rival L.A. neighborhoods:

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.
