Raised where the beasts are, north of the Beach
Raised in North Long Beach, where the “beasts” are: gangstas and other unsavoury characters. Snoop Dogg was from LBC, famously.
It also recalls Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. This is a popular children’s book about a kid that resents the authority that adults have over him, so he goes off on his own.
Additionally, in the “Hive” video, Earl and the crew are depicted as monsters at times that resemble the Wild things.
