Your eyes do not deceive you. This is a party flyer from a venue in Australia, fully themed after the respective colors of the notorious Crip & Blood street gangs. The product of inner city drugs, crime and social disenfranchisement the Bloods & Crips have spread nation wide and across the globe bringing death and negativity as a common call card. Yet through the glamorization of the gang culture via much of mainstream Hip Hop culure, we get stuff like this in the far corners of the world. In places where the actual pain and suffereing dont get seen, all you have are the cool dancing around, talking tough in colors and apparently they have fans….in the most unexpected places.
The digital noise behind these party’s original theme has resulted in a sudden change and tone down of the events original concept.
