Show transcript
00:00
Can you tell us a little bit about your background where you're
00:02
from, where you grew up about my background, you could go to
00:05
the police station and get my record.
00:08
It's probably like this when the show Cholos Tribe blew up
00:16
I didn't know what to think.
00:18
I'm still trying to process it through my head.
00:21
Like I was walking down the street and everybody was honking
00:24
at me.
00:24
Everybody was telling me hi.
00:26
And it was something very different to me because usually
00:28
people are scared of me.
00:30
We went from like one day being a Cholo to being like a internet
00:36
sensation.
00:37
Definitely people see cholos in a different light because
00:40
of Cholos track.
00:41
It's something that has never been done before.
00:44
Usually people that do videos about cholos or, or cholos kids
00:49
they're, they're not real cholos.
00:50
I don't wanna call them fake because they know themselves
00:52
that they're not cholos.
00:54
They're kind of making like a parody of cholos.
00:56
And for once in history is the real thing, portray, portraying
01:00
the real thing.
01:01
So I'm glad that to be a part of that, it's 22 kind of fans that
01:10
stand out to me.
01:10
The most and it's the little kids because, you know, when little
01:14
kids come up to me, it's like, like, wow, little kids actually
01:17
do look up to me and they want to take pictures with me and they
01:19
wanna hug me and it means the most to me.
01:21
But the second one that means the most to me is, uh, when other
01:25
homies, um, when a little home is some like, like, yeah, when
01:33
when, um when other homies um hit me up and they give me props
01:37
because they see that, that people look at us in the wrong way
01:41
and we're not all like that and, and, and them seeing me doing
01:44
the Beatles, they see themselves like, like they see themselves
01:48
that they're good too.
01:49
Like people don't see that.
01:50
And for once, like we, I am showcasing that we can do good, you
01:54
know, we are, you know, I don't wanna say bad people but we're
01:59
misguided people.
02:00
You know, a lot of us don't know any better but some of us like
02:04
me do know that that's not the way and we grew out of that.
02:09
Well, you know, I like to consider myself a soldier on the street
02:12
you know, because I do put in work for my neighborhood.
02:15
I do take care of the homeless people.
02:17
I do show the kids around my neighborhood a positive way of
02:20
being.
02:21
I always try to clean up wherever I can and I try to help out whoever
02:25
is, is around me, whether the neighbor needs help cleaning
02:28
or they want a tattoo because I do do tattoos, you know, as a
02:32
kid.
02:33
Um I really did look up to gang members, you know, back in the
02:36
nineties it was like a big thing going on.
02:39
Like you will see gang bangers everywhere.
02:41
And to me, I thought that was the coolest thing like wearing
02:44
them big pants, big shirts, bald headed tattoos.
02:48
My daughter is the only one that kind of knows my south side
02:50
I kinda do keep a, a tough exterior for everyone else.
03:05
Any advice I could give anybody would be just to, you know,
03:08
follow their dreams, never give up.
03:11
And a lot of times you are gonna, I mean, I think we all have to
03:14
fail, you know, to learn, you know, because I could tell you
03:16
guys stay in school and do good, but not everyone's gonna follow
03:20
that path.
03:20
Sometimes they have to fail, like drop out and then continue
03:23
later.
03:23
But e every, everybody, everybody learns in their own way
03:26
but one that I could just say just be yourself and don't, don't
03:30
ever let anyone tell you no, you can't do whatever you wanna
03:34
do.
