G Count of L.E.P. Bogus Boys is attributing the violence afflicting his hometown of Chicago to the lack of resources in its urban communities.
“Ain’t no money in the hood. Ain’t no opportunities out here, jobs… they took away the trades,” G Count told Say Cheese TV. “Kids get trades coming out of school. Ain’t nothing in the hood to uplift the community.”
Count and Moonie were never shy to voice their opinions on the senseless killings dividing their city. L.E.P. previously stated music could serve as a remedy to the violence in Chicago. The duo called for fellow MCs to step up to the plate to end street beefs.
“I truly wish there was no blood shed because chicago rappers need to unite that is all!” the “Commas” rappers wrote.
L.E.P. went on to direct their message to the city’s younger crop of talent.
“S/O to all the youngins making music and really trying to change their lifes not for fun or fame. We can make this work chicago.
“I wish we could teach the youngins the right way, I know people that smile in our face and sneak dis us when we never did people dirty
“When we figure how to unite we will be a city to be respect and feared but not thru violence foolish s--- . Music can change s--- for real.
“I hear the youngins say aint nobody did nothing for them s--- aint nobody did nothing 4 none of us but when you in you do what u can to help
“Its only 1 thing I would change about my city and that’s the killing we can do better we be killing 4 no reason or pocket change,” the wrote.
