Perks of being young in the thug life

“Perks” of being young in the thug life:

  • Juveniles often have access to alcohol, drugs, guns, cars and rides, and even women.

  • Recruiters like the 4 shown to the right, often speak of how they lived when they were kids and the “cool” things he was able to do because he was in the gang with his home boys.

  • Most Juveniles do not realize that the perks they receive now will bond them to their task-masters for a large amount of their lives.

  • Belief that they will “…make some serious bank, yo.”
