Alex Alonso: Do you think that you might receive some negative backlash because you have a gang neighborhood in New Zealand, in Aukland or somewhere down there, and it turns out that they start bangin' hard and someone gets hurt? Because they were somewhat influenced by Boo Yaa T.R.I.B.E. Do you ever feel it can go negative.

Gawtti: It can go either way Alex, that's how I look at it. You got to take it or not. You got to ride with it or you ain't going to ride with it. I can't say it is going to be positive because it is gangsta. It is hard to stay positive so if someone says I wanna be a gangster, but it can go both ways, I can't say if it is going to be positive or negative, you are either going to ride with it or not.

I respected him saying it's not about banging anymore, and getting involved in a positive activity, breakdancing, to stay out the lifestyle, that is something positive and powerful. Even their early rap was positive and about the music. Then banging suddenly is profitable in rap and then they go back to the ways they just criticized, that sh*t is backwards to me
