Dirty Motels, Dirty Corners
Where some people would look up to firemen, senators or presidents; others look up to killers, convicts and kingpins for inspiration. On the east side of the highway, many kids are lulled into false beliefs of what is right and wrong. Often the youth are praised and influenced into committing crimes they wouldn't normally commit. As the crime rate continues to rise each year, the average in age of criminals continues to decrease with some kids being considered hardened by the ages of twelve and thirteen.
Kadeem "The Dream" "King of Cream" Matthews, Nicholas "Pretty Boy" "Nicky Da Great" Belmore and Melvin "Penguin" "No-Name" Morris have spent their childhood trying to impress hustlers in the hot zones of Idlewood. The trio is often acknowledged because of their whacky nicknames that they share openly for a reputation. C.R.E.A.M., Inc. was formed when the group grew tired of the slow work provided by their elders. Although the trio is still associated with Idlewood's Go Gas, they can also be spotted around different land marks in the city with the sole intention of making a name for themselves.
Little to no sleep comes for the group with their existing living conditions. Whether that be through sleeping in filthy apartments or crashing on benches, a dirty motel or a dirty corner, C.R.E.A.M., Inc. has a common belief that one day they'll be living in luxury.
Is it Art or Vandalism?
During their teenage years, C.R.E.A.M., Inc solidified themselves as a group when they found a common love for art. Depending on the viewers perspective, these pieces of art could be viewed as crude or ridiculous. The truth behind each art piece was that the group of ambitious kids found a need to pass time between drug deals and robberies.
It was Kadeem "The Dream" and Melvin "Penguin" who first got into graffiti at the ages of 14 and 13. While Kadeem kept his nickname, Melvin found inspiration from a deceased New York artist known as Stay High 149 and came up with the name Hex 122. Although the group were aware that their art pieces were comical, they used the brash graffiti to promote their group name across the east side. Whether it was a stick man figure like art pieces from Stay High 149 or elaborate fat women sipping milkshakes, a mark from the tagging crew was left in every neighborhood east of the tracks. Every piece had CREAM stamped on it.
As relaxing as being a street artist may sound, it was often during a tag that a fight would break out or a police chase would commence. Violence was met more often away from the gritty corners until the day where Cedric "Tampa" Brown - the previous elder on Go Gas to the group - had turned on Kadeem and friends. When Kadeem Matthews was shot by a friend of Cedric on the 21st of January, it led to the entire group being pushed away from their elders to fend for themselves. The impact of the event quickly changed the demeanour of the young hustlers and led to more aggressive art pieces and a more aggressive nature in how they carried themselves from that day forth.
