        Please don’t think that all white people are the same. There are good white people and bad white people just like all other races. It makes me sad that you have not met the right kind of white people.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  8. Thanks for your useful article. Other thing is that mesothelioma is generally the result of the inhalation of material from asbestos, which is a cancer causing material. It’s commonly witnessed among staff in the construction industry who’ve long experience of asbestos. It is caused by residing in asbestos covered buildings for long periods of time, Genetics plays an important role, and some consumers are more vulnerable on the risk as compared to others.

  15. He was supposed to have been released in August of this year (2012), but I see no evidence of that. If he maxedbout he’d be in until 2014.

    It’s hard to know what to believe about Kody. He was definitely ETG, but the book is also fullmod exaggerations and lies. It doesn’t match up with police and hospital reports from the time, and he damn sure isn’t Dick Bass’ son (his Mom would’ve sued for child support). I seriously doubt he was Ray Charles’ godson also. Why no pictures to prove it?

    If all the shootings he claims to have some in the book actually happenned, he’d have to be the worst shot on history, because there would’ve have to have been many more 60s killed than there were. And it’s suspicious that there is virtually no references to banging with Bloods in the book.

    He didn’t get a book deal because he was such a big shot, he’s a bigshot because he got a book deal. He took advantage of the media interest in LA gangs at the time and was one of the very few Crips smart enough to spin a good yarn.

    Gangsta? Certainly. The Superstar OG he makes himseld out to be? Hell no. Word is L’il Monsta was the bigger G of the two.

    Still, aside from that wacky ass “New Afrikan” bullshit, he wote a great book (with a lot of help from his editor of course; you can tell what parts of the book where written by him and which parts were written by is middle aged white editos at Atlantic).

    • Pretty much. He was never even convicted of murder, and for a guy who is supposedly such a prolific murderer, you’d think there would be some evidence suggesting that this is actually true. The biggest problem is that there’s not one single person from that era and location who has come forward to corroborate any of his story.

      The book doesn’t even read like he’s searching for redemption for his past crimes. It reads more like he is glorifying a sad, pathetic life style perpetuated by poverty and ignorance. Moreover, by the end of the book, for anyone whose not a complete halfwit, you can tell he didn’t learn a fucking thing. All he did was trade one gang for another with a new name and uniform. There was no grand epiphany that drew him out of a lfie of crime – which is obvious because the dipshit can’t even stay out of prison for more than five minutes. Oh and his description of his crime that got him jailed for the “final” time at the end of his book is a complete lie. The guy wasn’t a drug dealer, he wasn’t even a police informant, and WORSE, Scott didn’t even commit the crime himself. He had some 18 year old kid with him who himself had been charged with distribution of crack only weeks before hand. The man is full of shit. Bullshit.

      Scott is just a racist whose angry because he grew up poor and destitute and faced a difficult life in a neighborhood stricken by crime. This is somehow the establishments fault. More, it’s the establishments fault that he was punished for committing crimes…? Like, I don’t even understand how anyone could buy into the baloney. Am I supposed to feel some kind of sympathy or empathy for a guy whining about being sent to prison for committing violent crimes? I mean, what the fuck?

      Oh so sorry your life is so hard… Well maybe if you didn’t go around robbing and killing people, perpetuating the same idiotic lifestyle that’s been plaguing neighborhoods like his for decades his life wouldn’t have been so fucking bad.

      M.L. The book Do or Die was written about crips and bloods years before Monster wrote his book . In it he was described as a living gang legend and the only individual that every gang member interviewed, crip or blood, had heard of. Clearly he had a massive reputation in L.A long before his book came out and was one of, if not the most notorious bangers in the city.

      • I never said I didn’t believe he was a well established ETG. But that doesn’t change the fact that his book is full of readily confirmable lies and exaggerations (starting with a cover showing his completely unscarred torso which was supposedly riddled with bullets).

        He presumably was shot, because his brother apparently committed murder to avenge it. But how bad was he actually hurt? Clearly his torso wasn’t shot up as his book claims. The hospital disputes his account of his treatment there.

        Also, just because he’s talked about in “Do or Die” doesn’t mean his bio isn’t exaggerated. “Do or Die” hardly amount to a rigorous scientific study.

    • Oh so now you’re a Monster Kody Scott expert? Shut the hell up because you sound stupid and it’s obvious you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    • So, now you’re the Monster Kody Scott expert? Shut the hell up! You don’t shit about what you’re talking about. You running your mouth based on your opinions not facts.

    • First of all, who the hell are you? do you know him personally? because i do so again shut the hell up! He’s quite capable of writing a book. That book is not the only thing that he’s ever written. Why don’t you research that instead posting comments based on your personal opinions and not facts.

      • hey, dipshit, if you know him so well then why don’t you call him by his preferred name? Sanyika Shakur? Get the fuck out of here you lying cunt.

        yeah, he’s written ONE other thing. it was a TERRIBLE novel that read like it was written by a 12 year old. Which I can attest to because I unfortunately own a copy of this two flush cornlog of a “book”. It’s quite apparent he had more than a bit of help writing his “biography”.

        • First of all asshole, i know what he prefers to be called cuz i was with him for several years and i was there when he touched down last August. As i have stated, he is out so u folks talking shit up here need to be mindful that he’s out and in fact, does have a computer and can read this shit. Peace & Blessings, Lisa aka Daru Shakur

  16. If you see how dark Monster’s Mom was and how light he is, it’s pretty obvious he has a white father.

  17. iTALY

  18. No, kody is out and his father is not white. Just because you can’t find where he’s located doesn’t mean he didn’t get released. Get your facts straight.

    • As a followup here, it seems ‘Monster’ was indeed released back in August; there’s an hour long interview of him on YouTube, which is surprisingly boring (mostly wacky Marxist babble).

      Another rather obvious piece of evidence I haven’t mentioned earlier that a lot of “Monster” (the book) is exaggerated and made up is the fact that on the cover of the book (as well as other photos from ghe same session, which are online) he proudly shows off his (at the time) quite muscular physique. He’s shirtless and you get a good look at his torso. This man clearly was never shot multiple times in the stomach, as his bio claims. That kind of injury would leave him scarred for life, and there would’ve been scar tissue all over his gut.

      Also, that scene in the book when he’s in the hospital, where he descibes the older gangsters trying to sneak into his room to get him, is laughably implausible (not to mention rather obviously inspired by a scene in “The Godfather”).

      It’d be interesting to know what his real story is. Obviously, he was a bonafides, high ranking ETG. I have no doubt he’s killed people and been shot at. But at the same time, there’s no way the incidents described in the book aren’t largely exaggerated and in some cases just made up. If you take Kody at his word, he’s have to be personally responsible for most of the homicides that took place in LA county in the late 70s through circa 1990. In his book, it seems the guy can’t go for a trip to the local grocery store without killing a few people on the side.

      His whole narrative is very confused. He portrays himself as being horribly oppressed, yet here is a guy who has been openly bragging about having committed numerous murders for years (in fact, the only ‘honest’ money he’s ever made he’s made bragging about crimes which, if true, would justify his being incarcerated for multiple life terms), yet has never been given a double digit prison term and has been paroled numerous times. The facts just don’t square with the image of the Oppressive Machine he portrays the US as. This dude would have been executed a long time ago in many countries. Here he is repeatedly paroled, even though he brags openly of capital murders.

      Even the hagiographic “American Gangsta” doc on him couldn’t manage to conceal the fact that his family (ex-wife and kids) want nothing to do with him. Word is he’s a wife-and-kid-beating crackhead. Too bad, because he clearly is intelligent. Classic case of wasted potential here.
