An anonymous source tipped off Chevanston to the existence of this YouTube video. Filmed on location in Rogers Park this video features semi-automatic weapons, handguns and lots of aggressive posturing. Above you can see the distinctive gate and siding of the duplex at Farwell and Greenview which suffered a fire this past winter.
A short message came with the video.
"L'z are the Howard Locs. They talk about killing Al Mac, aka Alex Vernon, 19 yo murdered Aug 5, 2005 at Jonquil and Paulina. They say no peace tready (sic), 30 days of bloodshed Rogers Park. They've got Tec9's, and assualt (sic) rifles"
Note - Bpg stands for bullet proof gangster (apparently its PBG reading the comments of Youtube, what does that mean? Who knows?)
Please continue reading for more pictures and words. Warning! Lyrics to this song are explicit. It doesn't leave much to the imagination.
The street signs featured in this gangster tale are Farwell and Ashland. The rapper wears a shirt that reads "U Mad Bro?". From the video and looking at the new t-shirts at Laced Up on Howard it looks like the new fashion headwear on the street is bandanas.
A shirtless young man with tattoos struts with a semi-automatic weapon with a white bandana. Kerchiefs have replaced doo-rags. The music consists of a horn sample, drumbeats, and some background singing. It took a long time to transcribe this song (hard to understand and the guy raps pretty fast).

One commenter named - DieWellEnt was conciliatory on the YouTube post.
