Star Doesn’t “Give A F***” About Street Credibility

Some large personalities are trying to turn around the taboo surrounding the word “snitch” for public safety. The “Start Snitching” campaign was started in New York in 2002 to solve the city’s problems with crime and is now being revived with its founder’s move to Philadelphia.

The “no snitching” culture is no longer seen as an option with homicides increasing 21% from last year’s numbers in the City of Brotherly Love, and radio host Troi Torain, aka Star from the “Star and Buc Wild” morning show on 100.3 The Beat, is using his media influence to affect change.

“I don’t want animals on two legs violating my rights based upon some silly ass codes,” Star told Global Grind. “It doesn’t have any say on the barring of my existence, as a rational man. It’s very asinine the amounts, not just homicides, but the shootings, that are taking place down here. This is literally the O.K. Corral. So codes don’t apply here. There is a much deeper need for peace amongst this particular community.”

And if anyone in the hip-hop circles should ask, “I don’t give a f*** about street credibility.” With the support of Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter and Deputy Commissioner Richard J. Ross Jr., who voiced their backing of Star’s campaign on his radio show, Philly will see if the personal commitment can grow to be more than just a start.
