True gangsters and gangbabngers are not that different. Gangsters of organized crime (check your spelling for some of you spelling organized you sound very retarded and very ungangster) are true real gangsters but they are not just limited to Italians. They also included the Black Gangsters from Harlem like Bumpy and Sam. Irish gangsters from Chicago's Northside and New York's Hell's Kithchen. You even had Spanish Gangsters. Plus the mafia started out as street hoods in street gangs like five points gang So for you moron's to only credit Italians as being gangsters do more research. Gangbangers depending on the gang and the pedigree yeah they could be gangsters too. The mafia toted guns and sold drugs so does the gangs that are currently runnin the block now. They both rose from poverty stricken areas of whatever city. What's not gangster is you cats wether white, black, hispanic or asian that are not from the hood, off the block, or trailer park or slum whatever the case maybe that want to potray yourselves as gangsters. Two white kids from privilged families who never seen a project in they life tried to rob my partner over some weed and they got smashed. If thye would have stuck to they role and just got high like they been doing he wouldn't be facing doulble murder and we would be parlaying. You wack motherfuckers from the suburbs get no love from me and if you try banging and try being gangsters you only selling yourself short. As much of an oxymoron as it is we are killing ourselves and selling dope to get the fuck out the hood while you dumb asses are degressing to make it to where we are. It is not aLL GOOD IN THE HOOD AND FOR YOU IGNORANT DUMB MOTHERFUCKERS wether rich or poor you need to quit sayin and thinking that shit. And for you crackers dissin blacks and spanish people on here tryin sound and talk like we talk stop it. Your making yourself look like an asshole. We don't even talk like that. With the Yo's and shiznits shiznit went out in '91. Don't be an asshole ya whole life and to my real gangsters from da block (white, black, spanish, and asian) stay up get your money and get legit if your going to do it do it right. Uno!
