G Is the Reason for the Season!


poor choice of symbolism

On Not That This, I  tend to post things out of the ordinary, and this post falls in line with that sentiment. Enjoy.

You may have noticed recently that everyone’s favorite ex-correctional officer turned rapper, Rick Ross has canceled the remainder of his current tour. The tour was  not canceled because of an illness, venue concerns, or low ticket sales. The tour was canceled because of a gang organization known as the Gangster Disciples. The Gangster Disciples or GD’s, were formed on the South-side of Chicago in the late 1960’s by David Barksdale, leader of the Black Disciples, and Larry Hoover, leader of the Supreme Gangsters. The two groups united to form the Black Gangster Disciple Nation (BGDN). The problem the GD’s have with Mr. Rozay stems from his repeated reference to Gangster Disciple-ness, while he (Ross) is not in actual member. The first reference was in “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast)” a popular Rick Ross song where Ross states “I think I’m Big Meech, Larry Hoover, whipping work, halleluiah,one nation under god real niggas getting money from the fucking start.” The GD’s appeared to let this reference to their founder slide, but had no choice but to act once Ross released “The Black Bar Mitzvah” where he appears with the Star of David. The major symbol Gangster Disciples make use of is the six-pointed star (identical in appearance to the Star of David) The fact that this star is known as the Star of David pays homage to founder David Barksdale, and the six points are said to represent love, life, loyalty, understanding, knowledge, and wisdom (respect). Uh-oh Ricky. Yet another example of African-Americans re-purposing something to fit their needs. The GD’s had enough and proclaimed to the streets, and all those that respect large gang organizations  that Ross was not allowed to perform in the state of Tennessee  Georgia, Colorado or Florida, and all places where GD’s have numerous members. Below are subsequent videos beautifully edited by the GD’s expressing their disdain for Rick Ross and his record label Maybach Music Group. They clearly express the GD’s disdain for Rozy, enjoy:

Rick Ross is not a real gangster, he is an entertainer, that glorifies the actions of gangsters. The moment when gangsters feel they are being profited off of, the person responsible is required to get extra security.

Heed the warning Ricky.
