Rapper 40 Glocc Denies Being A Crip. Rapper 40 Glocc a/k/a Lawrence White protests that he is not a Colton City Crip after being included in a civil gang injunction brought by the San Bernardino County district attorney in California. The rapper argues that his previous references to a gang affiliation simply was to enhance his image and sell records:
"I am an entertainer trying to make a name for myself in the rap industry where image is everything. It is common in the rap industry to make music with violent lyrics and gang references. However, this in no way represents reality. It sells records, which is why rap artists say what they say."
The jury has convicted three members of the Crips gang -- Tracy Harris, Clinton Knight and Chester Randall -- on federal racketeering charges in Wichita, Kansas:
The jury of eight women and four men delivered the verdicts after nearly four days of deliberation. The trial lasted nearly three weeks and is the first in a series of trials linked to federal charges against gang members. The defendants were among 28 people charged with participating in a "pattern of racketeering activity" that dates to December 1990. Wichita police said all are Crips gang members.
