This Blocc Movement album, a collaboration between Sacramento’s two most successful rappers — C-Bo and Brotha Lynch — brings back lots of memories, and this particular song was like ghetto gospel to most of the people I knew back in what many scholars and scientists refer to as “the day”.
The lyric: “Cuz Blocc niggaz don’t sock niggaz/They shoot niggaz in the back” was a pretty accurate description of what things were like in the Garden Blocc in the late-90s. During the 2000s, the Garden Blocc calmed down a bit (or maybe I calmed down), but when I was a teenager, you couldn’t let your guard down between 21st Street and 29th Street because songs like this were not an exaggeration.
Anyway, I’m not sure why I went off on a descriptive tangent here. I only meant to post the song because it reminds me of hanging out with my friends back in Sacramento.
