because they wanna keep their GANGSTA image and sell more gangsta rap songs.
They all promote the gang banger mentality( not there is one) lifestyle. Live by gang bangin, die by gang bangin.
Some want to live the thug life, drugs, fancy cars, living large, women, nightclubs, arrogance, egos, etc. Sometimes they clash, then chaos begins.
Couldn't have said it better.
No often enough tho huh? :)
As opposed to what, second violinists?
Because it sells the music.
Because they can afford big assed guns
