If you grew up in the 80’s and early 90’s in the NYC and had to walking the BK streets or ride the train to school, the Decepticons gang (and the always freshly dipped Lo Lifes) was very real. Their exploits—like robbing entire train cars—are the stuff of legend, and based on truth. Brownsville repping rapper Maffew Ragazino Sr. is an MC who witnessed that era firsthand and relays those memories lovely on “Decepts On The L Train.”
