It’s no secret that gangs have been apart of pop culture for a longtime, however, a certain Hip Hop artists who has seen it all, wants to put gangs to rest.
Harlem rapper Ma$e took it to instagram this evening to voice his opinion on Black men being apart of the gang culture in a post.
“I know what I’m about to say is unpopular but it still needs to be said. The weakest thing a black man can do today is join a street gang. The person who you’re riding for today ends up getting a bag to kill you or sending you to jail. Think about it what type of person would ask you to hurt your own people and take an oath to be there for your gang only to end up not being there for your children and family. I NEVER UNDERSTOOD THAT. Maybe that’s why I NEVER THOUGHT PEOPLE IN GANGS WERE TOUGH! If you’re thinking about becoming one don’t! I RESPECT A MAN THAT CAN STAND ON HIS OWN. #Day3 of #22days of speaking my mind. #mase“
