FAMILIA: THE ORIGINAL C x C 💯: When numerous national newspapers of note, including the New York Times - which ran this glowing headline "U.S. Says 17 Ran Murder Gang That Ruled Heroin Sales in Bronx" on May 27, 1994 - refer to your loved ones in such nefarious terms, it can be really hard to garner any empathy from your average man.
Perhaps only The Rolling Stones have "Sympathy for the Devil". However, the C x C Crime Family are indeed family, both literally and figuratively - from first cousins George "Big Cal" Calderon and Angel "Cuson" Padilla, to forever brothers-in-arms Pirata and Spanky.
Have you ever been to a Thanksgiving dinner? Family is complicated.
To that end, pictured here we have "Big Cal" Calderon hopping out the sunroof of his custom 190E Benz surrounded by family: Choco, Benny Hill, The OG Pirata AKA Taliek, Spanky, Viejo Bigote, Dollar Bill and Supreme (at the bottom right) live on Saint Ann's Avenue and E 139th Street Circa 1990 💪🏽🇵🇷🙏🏽🗽 #RIP #THEBRONX #LEGENDS #OLDSCHOOL #OLDNEWYORK #OGSHXT @jwebb45 @brank_napp_negashi @dmarcodagreat76 @richstylescollection @richmoney102 @pirataliek_og @the_official_terror_squad @niceone140 @soleoncanvas
