What's the playlist of the contemporary average gangbanger?

Unread post by Yohann » October 15th, 2008, 3:24 pm

I'd like to know the kind of music that the average LA gang member ( if he exists...) listens to.
Does cult group like N.W.A. still have a great influence in the hood today?
Do LA gangbangers listen to mainstream shit like lil'wayne, 50cent and so on, or are they aware of some underground artists from East- or West coast? Is West Coast rap predominant?
I obviously don't want to generalize stupidly, there are of course different people in LA who listen to various kind of Hip-hop and of music in general, but i'd like to know the tendancy of LA streets...
I'm french so excuse my english...
Peace from Paris, France.

les membres de gang tu sais ils ecoutes des vrais trucs underground de leurs hood pour la plus part,en general ya souvent plusieurs rappeurs de leurs hoods ms sinon ca reste souvent des trucs locaux
apres ca depend aussi la generation,parce que les vieux membres de gang n'en ont rien a foutre du rap et sont en general tres branches oldies (deja a l'epoque aux debut des 90's ils le revendiques)
sinon bienvenue

en vrai tu le devine a travers les docs (genre dead homiez,why we bang,concrete hell ect...) ou on entend souvent des artists tres underground de la scene locale (des morceaux que tu peux chier pour les trouver parfois)
et c'est pas la peine de te casser le cul a ecrire en anglais,pour le peu de reponses que t'aura de toute facon

ouai. je vais matter les reportages dont tu m'as parlé...
Donc à priori les mecs sont pas dans le délire mainstream mais plus dans le gangsta rap local...C'est pas plus mal.
T'as des exemples de mecs qui ont pris la relève de NWA a Compton? parce que je m'intéresse particulièrement à Compton.

ok. What about west coast rap pionneers like NWA, Ice T and so on...Are they still listened in the hood? (i assume that the old generation still listen to them, but do they have success among the youngest gangbangers?)

As far as sureno rap is concerned: do blacks also listen to it? and does it deal with or stir up racial tensions between blacks and hispanics? i know that My questions are too general but i just wanna know the trends...

gangsta rap, some mainstream, and ur hoods rappers

mexican gangsters for the most part listen to all kinds of black rap too except if you sureno you aint listening to norteno rap, vice versa.

blacks dont listen to too much mexican gangsta rap, i mean sureno type shit but i listen to conejo he is cool even though he is on that racial shit, but i feel mexicans do that shit to make moves amongst young dumb prideful mexican gangsters, cuz conejo also said the dream producer he wants to work with is Dr. Dre.
