Uncle Murda & Maino Take Fans On A Tour Of Brooklyn’s Toughest Neighborhooods
Given their status in the borough, the BK gatekeepers and Fox 5 Films’ Zachary Kiesch went out to the infamous Pink Houses Projects and Bed-Stuy’s Nostrand Ave to get a better understanding of the life behind their all-too-real lyrics.
“Look out here, ain’t nothing out here. You come out here ain’t nothing to look forward to but the street life,” Uncle Murda says. “The easiest way to get something is by going to drugs or going to take it from somebody.”
The Pink Houses are where rookie NYPD cop Peter Liang shot and killed unarmed civilian Akai Gurley. Liang was only found guilty of manslaughter, didn’t receive jail time. Instead, he was sentenced to 800 of community service and five years probation — and the people of New York continue to speak out against the ruling.
During the fifteen minute film, the rappers discuss family members who have been the victis of drug abuse, having survived shooutouts, how they got involved in the streets, what they learned in the ‘hood, and much more.
