Many of us have seen the damage being done in Chicago from the outside looking in, whether it was through the music of various news reports. If you watched VICE on HBO, they traveled to the heart of the Chi to get a first hand account of what’s really going on there and got first hand commentary from those who live there.
For Protein TV’s documentary, we hear more stories from those in the jungle (including kids in the midst of it). Some say the removal of leadership from the OG gangs in the city has attributed for most of what’s going on, with the younger generation turning to the “kill or be killed” mentality. Even for those who made it out of the streets, they know some folks are just trying to survive and hoping to see tomorrow.
