I found a interesting piece from Allhiphop.com on the imprisoned founder of the Hatian Miami street gang Zoe Pound. I’ve heard that these guys have real SERIOUS muscle in the streets of Miami. Many rappers are constantly bigging them up to gain credibility
(AllHipHop News) Imprisoned Zoe Pound rap group leader Mac A Zoe recently checked in with AllHipHop.com and gave an update on his prison sentence and to let all the fans know about his situation.
Although he’s serving a life sentence for his alleged involvement in an attempted murder, Mac A Zoe believes he could be freed as early as 2012.
“Right now everything is looking beautiful, its in the courts right now, in gods hands,” Mac A Zoe told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. “Everything is in favor of me , its just the matter of a day, the way i see it. They just dragging it out right now knowing there going to have to turn me loose. Their trying to get every day out of me. Hopefully by 2012 I should be out, on the other side of these bars.”
Mac A Zoe was featured in an episode of American Gangster and is allegedly one of the leaders of the feared Haitian Zoe Pound gang.
He is also associated with rap label Zoe Pound Entertainment, whose main artist Red Eyezz has recorded with artists like Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Pitbull, Bun B. and others.
Although he is behind bars, Mac A Zoe is keeping a close watch on the latest information about Miami’s Hip-Hop community.
Mac A Zoe commented on a recent article in the Miami New Times written by Uncle Luke, where the legendary rapper criticized out of town artists who have taken up residence in Miami, but have allegedly not given enough back to the local communities.
Luke called out famous residents like Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled and Lil Wayne, in the article.
Multiple figures replied, including Lil Wayne, who took offense to the comments, while DJ Khaled hosted Luke on his radio show shortly after the article was published, where the two men discussed the issue.
Mac A Zoe stood by Uncle Luke’s statements.
“I have to agree with Luke , not trying to knock nobody, but why not help the community, why not give back,?” Mac A Zoe asked. “That’s whats wrong with alot of brothers. Greed is always going to be their downfall.”
Mac blamed the fierce competition to get rich, as the main reason most artists do not give back nowadays.
“Everyone is trying to get richer then the next man, you might have this nigga watching this nigga pockets. ‘Oh this nigga got $500 million , if I got to fuck over my artists to get to where this nigga at that’s what I’m going to do. Thats the biggest problem in this rap game. That’s why alot of artists getting f**ked over and I don’t like that …you don’t put no dress on a man and pimp a ni**a”
