SORT BY Relevancy
In the late 80s, death was all around us in Brownsville and Marcus Garvey Village. We supported each other through some of the harshest times in Brooklyn’s history—crack was raging and guns went off daily. Before we were known as the Lo-lifes, we were just friends who wore Polo and Ralph Lauren. We spent days in the pool and at the local jams, bagging pieces, and living our lives. Our only concerns were money, hoes, and clothes. We had reputations for bringing home the finest pieces and staying fly. At first, cats around us took this as a weakness; they thought we couldn’t get busy. We proved them wrong on many occasions.
The Lo-lifes were unified under a single label. We weren’t thought of as greedy cats, killers, or thugs—we were original, trendsetters, and go-getters. And now we’ve spread around the world: Spain, Brazil, Australia, France, and too many other places to nameWe lost many of our brothers along the way. I did their names on walls, looked at their young faces in coffins, and cried with my brothers. Every tear, drop of blood, and funeral added weight and value to the name Lo-life. We hold it in high regard; we don’t take it lightly or allow it to be abused. We are a family first, call us what you want after that. 2LLs: love and loyalty
"Too Many To Mention"
THE * MILLION * MAN * RUSH
Money, Hoes & Clothes Imagine the unimaginable, hundreds of inner city youth coming together for a specific cause, "To get dipped"!* (fly, fresh, etc) which in Brooklyn it meant your clothes were new and usually from the most flashy designers with the illest colors. Tommy Hilfiger was still an amateur in the streets. Izod was past tense and Versace wasn't even heard of in the Hip Hop fashion dictionary, niggers couldn't even pronounce the word until Biggie Smalls came on the scene. The head honcho in labels and brands was Ralph Lauren's "Polo". In our eyes he was worshipped like God. It was even to the point where some of us would carry a picture of Ralph Lauren in our wallets. "MONEY, HOES, AND CLOTHES was our motto and "LO" was our life The name Lo-Lifes came about in '88 when Big Vic Lo (Thirstin Howl III) got caught talking to a girl after he just got another girl's phone number. The girl said "you are a low-life" in a disrespectful manner. His reply, "you are right!" "I wear Lo everyday and "Lo" is my life. Then everybody replied, "that's right", We are Lo-Lifes!". It was never officially voted on, or anything it was just the name we lived by. The Lo-Lifes were originally composed of two boostin posse's from different sections in Brooklyn. There was the Crown Heights half who were originally known as "Ralphies Kids" (Ralph Lauren's Kids). That name being made by G-George whom lived on St. John's and Utica Avenue, which was also where Ralphies Kids could be found. Then there was the Brownsville half who were originally called POLO U.S.A. (United Shoplifters Association).
Polémico: murió una yegua en plena final de Polo
Anay Sur Cielito falleció tras no superar el paro cardíaco que sufrió cuando era cabalgada por un jugador de La Dolfina en la final del Argentino de Polo.
La Dolfina superó a Ellerstina 14-12 en la final del Campeonato Argentino de Polo que se disputó en el Campo Argentino de Polo, ubicado en el barrio porteño de Palermo, y se adjudicó por segunda vez en su historia la Triple Corona de la Asociación Argentina de Polo (AAP), un título reservado para aquellos equipos que obtienen, además de este certamen, el Abierto de Hurlingham y el de Tortugas.
La muerte de la yegua Anay Sur Cielito, propiedad de Juan Martín Nero y Marcos Heguy, opacó los festejos de La Dolfina.
La yegua se desplomó durante la final y falleció luego de no superar el paro cardíaco.
