Crip: what the Internet doesn’t know. It’s nothing found in the dictionary either…but here, the author soul-searches and articulates the “true” experience and outlook of Crip life within confinement and urban concretes of Los Angeles without romanticizing it.

From the mind of Akili, the concrete jungle of urban Los Angeles has always been a survival task, but one that he honorably calls home, a place he has found worthy of his constructive insight. Inspired by the nobility, rage and redemption of Mr. Stanley “Tookie” Williams, Akili has transformed himself into a positive influence on the outlook of Crips and Bloods. In Akili’s opinion, “street gangs are counterproductive representatives of the poor, urban ghettos of America,” and from such opinion Akili desperately implores gangs to shed their skin of genocide and demoralization “before it’s too late.”
