The word originally was gang slang for Long Beach Crip because every gang has pride for their city. As Long beach crip rappers like snoop got big, the term got bigger.For people from long beach who are not gangsters the term now means Long Beach City or Long Beach California. Oh yeah, Long Beach Crips is not a gang in fact all Long Beach Crip Gangs dont even get along contrary to what "Tha Eastsidaz" portray.
Q.Where you from Cuz?
A. I'm from that LBC loc.
Long Beach, California.
I from tha' east-side of tha' LBC, don't be fuckin' wit' me.
Long Beach, California. From the context in which "LBC" is popularly used (and from simple common sense), it is clear that the acronym does NOT refer to "Long Beach Crips", "Long Beach/Compton", or "Long Beach City".
With so much drama in the L.B.C.
It's kinda hard bein' Snoop D-O-double-G
Literary Book Club, of course. Where have you guys been?
"With so much drama in the LBC..."
Being a man of letters, Snoop was involved in a little-known debate with the LBC's board of trustees over the misspelling of "Dog" in his pseudonym in 2000. The LBC felt that it led admiring fans to accept poor English, but upon Snoop's election to the LBC board in 2001, the subject has been dropped, especially in light of Snoop's 2004 publication, "It's an ABC Thang: The use of variant language as a viable alternative in urban expression", available from the Berkley Press.
Contrary to popular belief and usage this term was orignially coined to mean Long Beach Compton. The term was popularized in order to describe the groups who had members living in both Compton and north east Long Beach which nearly border one another.
To a place that be, call it LBC -Snoop
long beach california. lbc has nothing to do with compton, it's all about long beach pride. have you ever heard anyone in c-town proudly refer to the lbc as their home? and even if it originally meant long beach crip, that meaning has since morphed to mean "long beach, california" as most people now abbreviate their hometown to the letters LBC.
I'm from the LBC.
Long Beach city
NOT Long Beach Crip
Snoop is a Rollin 20s Crip for those who didn't know
I'm from the LBC, so I keeps it G most naturally
