Members of the Bloods pose a serious threat to local communities within the state.

With copious references to it throughout his discography, HoneyKomb Brazy makes his gang affiliation and prior criminal activity quite well known. However, this most recent circumstance proves that the tendencies he speaks of extend far beyond rapping and have real-world implications. 

This instance is also not the first time keen fans of the rapper have seen him or those close to him be victimized by this violence. In November of 2020, HoneyKomb Brazy was on Instagram Live interacting with fans when he was shot at seemingly out of nowhere.

Mobile has become somewhat of a low-key yet simmering location for gang violence, perpetrated often by local offshoots of national organizations such as the Bloods. With HoneyKomb Brazy's consistent references to Blood-related elements, as well as the use of a "B" in his name instead of a "C," a move often associated with affiliation to that gang, it's clear where he falls regarding the situation developing in Alabama today.
