Although South Central L.A. has received its share of negative publicity over the years, this subregion remains a viable community with plenty of heart and soul. Violence and, possibly to an even greater extent, corruption are real here, although the latter has been more prominent of late. One oddly positive product of South Central has been its music: Gangs beget gangster activity, which begets gangster rap, ultimately providing some of music’s, even film’s, biggest stars. Some of those stars, including Ice- T (Tracy Morrow, from Crenshaw), Snoop Dogg (Calvin Broadus, from Long Beach), Dr. Dre (Andre Young, from Compton), and Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson, from South Central L.A.), all grew up in or near this subregion.
