Long Beach-born rapper Warren G is calling out the Philadelphia Eagles.

The “Regulate” rapper fired back at the Eagles for accusing DeSean Jackson of gang connections. He claims the Eagles are using this as an excuse to cheat Jackson out of a lot of money. Although Jackson gave career best stats last year, the Eagles saved $10 million by cutting the football star and his $30 million contract, which had three more years.

Warren G grew up in the same Long Beach, California neighborhood as Jackson. He said Jackson’s been made to seem guilty by association.

“He was born and raised in a rough area, and everyone has friends who are troubled if you grew up where he did,” G says.

And as for the photo where Jackson appears to be throwing up a Crip gang sign, the rapper explained his view. “This is a scapegoat situation … ’cause they don’t want to give him a lot of money.”

He said Jackson should ”come to a Cali team like the Raiders where they will respect your talents.”

The Oakland Raiders have shown interest in Jackson, according to ESPN, however as EUR also reported, Jackson is currently meeting with the Washington Redskins who have expressed interest in signing him.

A matchup of Stevenson and Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III would certainly upgrade their offense.

But Stevenson has some fans among the Raiders as well.

“When you talk about bringing in a guy as talented as he is, and you have that opportunity, I think you take a shot at it,” Raiders safety Chris Woodson said. “And I think where we are as a team, we need all the playmakers we can have, and adding that guy would definitely help take us to the next level.”

    In the photo that is not a Crip sign. If Desean thinks that’s what it is he is all wrong! All I see from L to R is a peace sign held by what looks like rapper Freeway, Desean either holding the peace sign or his middle finger, guy in white t-shirt holding the mic and other hand is in a fist and last guy has west side. Where is a Crip sign??? Just because several black guys are on a pic with their hands up does not mean it is a gang sign or gang related. A blind man could see nothing related to a gang in this pic.

    I think Warren G should sit down and shut the hell up. I agree with this decision by the Eagles. Who wants anyone that is associated with gangs and thuggery on their team. Yes a strong message should be sent out to all future young NFL prospects that this type of lifestyle will NOT be tolerated. That’s how it should be. Gang life is nothing glamorous and should not be looked upon as if it is. Great job Eagles, I’m hoping to see a lot more of this. NFL is about Men not about drug dealing, murderous, THUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This guy needs to definitely grow up. Companies aren’t playing about their public image anymore. I wouldn’t have risked my money on the hood for the sake of fitting in and being “down”.
