Re: 38 arrested in South LA gang sweep

I wonder if they meant the Rollin 20's Neighborhood Bloods instead of the 20's Crips from Long Beach. It would be make more sense given the fact that they mentioned Baldwin Village and the P Stones and how both hoods are close. But I will leave that speculation up to the experts on this board.

From what she states in the book, I think it's some East Coast rap veteran. I personally had my money on either LL Cool J or Method Man. Many others I talked to about the book think the same, but that is my opinion. Interested in wondering who others think could be "Papa".
