Cardi B put herself in the line of fire with apparent rival gang members, thanks to a social media post that included a insult against the Crips.
On Monday, Cardi posted a picture of herself rocking a blue fur coat. Her caption read, “I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin.” It’s the word “Flue” that has her in serious trouble. ‘Flue’ is a way to insult the Crips favorite color, blue, without using the actual word.
Cardi B publicly and proudly claims she is a member of the Blood gang, so the post, which has accumulated more than a million likes has angered the Crips, who not only left angry comments but some of them flat-out threatened her.
One comment said, “@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA.”The rapper is scheduled to come to L.A. for the NBA All-Star festivities in about 9 days and her new enemies now know it.
Another comment said “Now why you go and do this f**k s**t Cardi. This is literally West Coast Suicide …. b**** betta get #neutral.”
After a while the “flue” caption was removed. According to TMZ Cardi b has not commented on the post.
Although Cardi B is a ‘known Blood’ she doesn’t always throw shade on Crips. In the video below you will see Cardi Showing love in the projects with a few Crips.
The Bloods gang was formed initially to compete against the influence of the Crips in Los Angeles CA. Benson Owens established the West Piru street-gang. The Bloods street-gang was initially formed to provide members protection from the Crips. Many of the non-Crip street-gangs used to call one another “blood”. The Bloods and the Crips were extremely territorial and quite ardent in protecting their neighborhood against invasion by one another as well as other rival gangs. Due to the large number of gang members occupying a relatively small area of Los Angeles, the gangs devised a method of identifying one another. Between 1972 and 1979, the rivalry between the Bloods and Crips would grow, accounting for a majority of the gang-related murders in southern Los Angeles. Gang members of the Bloods and Crips occasionally fight against each other and are responsible for a significant portion of gang-related murders in America.
