Likwit Crew member Defari weighed in on the brewing
beef between fellow Likwit Crew members Xzibit, J-Ro and Tash. As previously
reported, J-Ro has released a 12 inch taking aim at Xzibit, named "Look
Out: The X-Homie."
"When you stray so far away from the dudes
that you came up with, you wonder if he even knows himself," Defari told
AllhipHop.com. "Likwit Crew, we know who we are. Defari, I know who the
fuck I am."
On the "X-Homie" record, J-Ro raps
"I guess a lil money really makes niggas change/The X Homie blew and aint
never been the same…
J-Ro also questions Xzibit’s connections to
the Los Angeles gang scene. "You used to be hip-hop John McClain/who you
supposed to be the gang bang John Wayne/Bitch please get your walk on to this/I
saved your ass from getting licked by Bloods and Crips."
"You wait til you are 27years old and now
you are Crippin?" Defari asked of Xzibit. "You aint from one street.
Just cause niggas from the set show you love, that doesn’t mean that you are
from the set. It’s crazy because these niggas are so Hollywood with this shit
and there are so many regular real niggas who aint never banged, who are way
more gangsta then these niggas. They goin bananas from bandannas.
Defari said that he warned Xzibit not to glorify
the gang life. "Niggas told me when I was a little kid ‘don’t fuck with
this shit.’ I used to tell dude on the road you not a Crip or a Blood. I aint
down with fake bangin, or bangin period, fake or not."
Defari recently finished a track produced by
Fredwreck, titled "Haunted Souls," which deals with the harsh realities
of the gang life. "It will be the hardest shit you ever heard out of L.A.,"
Defari said. "It’s about three kids, 13, 16 and 19. They talk about why
they joined and how they got into the life. It’s a killer song. I taped my voice
to sound like little kids."
The record will be released on Defari’s newly
formed label High Times/Universal distributed label, Herut (pronounced hey roo.)
and is from his upcoming album, Odds And Even.
"I managed to incorporate all of my family,
even my ABB Family." Defari continued. "I named it Odds And Even because
it means I beat the odds and I am about to get even with the game."
The album features appearances by E-Swift, Evidence,
Dilated Peoples Phil The Agony and The Liks.
