Guda Gang (also known as Gas Team or G-Team) is a duo composed of Watts, California rappers Black Johnson and Sinister Six. Hardcore, raw, brutally honest, authentic, extremely gangsta and extremely Watts are the only adjectives to effectively describe the music that Guda Gang makes. What started as a few homies hustling and freestyling on the streets of Skid Row in Downtown LA quickly developed into something deeper than just rhyming, drug dealing and gang banging. What makes the backstory behind Guda Gang even crazier is the fact that Black Johnson and Sinister Six are both from rival gangs in Watts that have been feuding with each other for decades. Black Johnson is a member of the Bounty Hunter Watts Bloods and Sinister Six is from the Grape Street Watts Crips. Guda Gang is an ode back to the 1992 Watts truce, which was a peace agreement between rival Watts gangs reached just days before the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Unfortunately, both Black Johnson and Sinister Six are currently serving lengthy prison sentences stemming from murder, manslaughter, robbery, drug and weapons charges. Many so-called “gangsta rappers” make music based off the lifestyle's of their homies or other active gang members they've personally witnessed, but when it comes to Guda Gang it literally doesn’t get any realer than this. At the end of the day this project represents something much deeper than Watts and both emcees individual skill level. It showcases the horrors of living a full fledged street life and the consequences that come attached with being an active gang member. Making music perpetrating the street life is something that is constantly being exploited by fraudulent rappers trying to make a name for themselves. Fake thug rappers like that couldn’t hold a candle to the exploits put on display by Guda Gang. The sayings “Live by the gun, die by the gun” and “If you do the crime, be prepared to do the time” hold extreme value and meaning when it comes to the backstory behind Guda Gang. This isn’t about glamorizing gang banging, drug dealing or violence. This is about letting the youth know that there are no winners in choosing the street life. Don’t believe everything you see in movies or the nonsense these fake gangsta rappers promote. This type of lifestyle only results in death or prison time, and that is a fact. Kids, be yourself, don’t try this at home. This is street rap for real, not a game to be played with.
