One-On-One With Almighty Blood Messiah

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Sibile and Bill sit down with Almighty Blood Messiah in the Chasing New Jersey studio to talk about his life as the Blood’s gang leader and his hopes for Trenton.  He discusses what it takes to go from gang member to Almighty Blood Messiah which includes national appeal and motivation to really help the entire gang as a whole.

He talks about the initiation process as getting “jumped-in” which refers to gang members basically fighting the recruit for 31 seconds and them having to fight back and fight for themselves.  This proves that the recruit is also willing to fight for the gang.

When asked about his personal fear, Messiah says that he fears nothing. He says that you have to live this life and do all the things gangs are supposed to do as a Bloods member in order to get the top spot as the Almighty Blood Messiah. This doesn’t just include fighting, this includes taking care of your community, studying the law and carrying yourself respectively at all times.

When asked about his high-profile status in Trenton he goes on to say that, “some people would say that I’m like the only person that’s actually doing it this way, you know I run into several guys and they are not as outspoken, but they are doing the right things.”

Sibile questions the gang’s name of “Sex, Money, Murder” and how this fits in with the Blood mentality in Trenton.  Messiah responded by saying, “the world is operating off sex, money and murder right now.  That’s how money is made, off sex and murder.  If you listen to any rapper right now, if they are not talking sex, money and murder then they are pretty much not selling.”

Bill questioned how the kids in the neighborhood react to gang presence. He asked, “What do you say to the young kid in Trenton who’s 8, 9 ,10 years old and looking up to the gang member instead of the police officer, do you think that’s a positive thing or a negative thing?” Messiah quickly responded that, “there is a reason you look up to the gang member rather than the police officer. The reason being is because the gang member may buy him something to eat or look out for him in certain ways, where the police officer wants to throw him on the wall, and cuff him, give him a criminal behavior before he has the chance to decide whether he wants to be into crime or seek an education.”  He emphasizes the important of offering jobs and training for the people of Trenton to turn them into legit business people so that the residents can capitalize from it and so can the neighborhoods and then crime will go down.
