Knew I was gang affiliated, got on TV and told on me
Kanye’s just saying that it’s no secret that there is a lot of gang violence in Chicago.
If you look back in history, the stereotypical American “gang” originated in Chicago. It’s home to a lot of violence (especially in the South Side) considering it has the highest murder rate in the entire United States of America, which happened to be chronicled in Kanye’s verse on Watch the Throne’s “Murder to Excellence”. A lot of African American gangs were founded and still reside in Chicago like the infamous Larry Hoover’s Gangster Disciples, the Black P. Stones, and the Vice Lords.
