  • Published 4 weeks ago

Watch this documentary BK Cash and his friends show you an inside look at the legendary hood of Compton. We'll learn about the social hierarchy in the projects, the guys take on relationships, race, and wisdom from the OGs.
Compton's violent reputation reached the national spotlight in the late 1980s with the prominent rise of local gangsta rap groups Compton's Most Wanted and N.W.A, the latter of whom released the album Straight Outta Compton in 1988.
The city became notorious for gang violence, primarily caused by the Bloods and Crips.
Since 2015, Compton is a different city than the one in the 1980s and mid 1990s. Yes, it still struggles with poverty and crime, but large retailers that once shunned the city have moved in.
Take a look inside Compton.
