Star: I Don’t Give A FU*K! About Street Credibility (Global Grind EXCLUSIVE)

Troi Torain, aka STAR of the Star & Buc Wild Morning show has been doing his thing on 100.3 the Beat in Philadelphia. When Star blessed the air waves in New York City in the early 2000s he started his ‘START SNITCHIN’ campaign to encourage anyone who has information regarding a homicide to contact the local police authorities in hopes to encourage a safer community.

Today, Star is rocking the city of brotherly love and has re-launched his “START SNITCHIN” campaign and told us about his latest efforts on the commitment he has taken on personally!

Why are y'all doing this?
It’s a very, very serious situation growing in Philly. You can’t ignore the fact that since January, that you got 156 homicides, that surpasses their entire number for 2010, which was 146. In 2009, 143. 1 shy of 2008 and the total was 157. There hasn’t been murders like that in New York City since 2000, you know.

In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
