According to SR:

Yesterday, I received a call from an industry exec who responded to me questioning the delayed sentencing of convicted rapper Lil Wayne. The exec asked something like, “What is Lil Wayne now, a Crip or a Blood? Why was he wearing blue into court?” Then he said he’d heard that Weezy is getting death threats and he added, “The Crips are waiting for him on the inside.”

Rumors have swirled for years about Lil Wayne’s gang affiliation. The prevailing belief is that Wayne is not a member of any set but he associates mainly with the Bloods. Rikers Island, where Lil Wayne will call home for the next 8 months, has an equal number of Crips and Bloods. But NY has seen more Crips migrating from the west coast. Is that why Lil Wayne wore blue to his hearing in December and again yesterday?
