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.”
