Ok, I've always been wondering this. It doesn't really add up.
Death row was founded by dr. dre and suge knight. Suge Knight is a hardcore blood. Death Row however, signed Snoop Dogg, who apparently is a crip. The Bloods were founded on the principle of defending themselves from the expansion of the crip gang. How is it that this coexisted? Were they just claiming gang associations for publicity's sake?
