    In a press conference yesterday, hip hop impresario and entrepreneur Russell Simmons announced the formation of The Office of Homeboy Security, a coalition of music industry executives, artists and law enforcement officials dedicated to ensuring the safety of the hip-hop community.

    “While we’ve been working on this for months, the recent passing of our brother and friend, Jam Master Jay only strengthens our resolve and refocuses our need for an organization of this type.” Simmons said. “We believe The Office of Homeboy Security is the best answer to the escalating violence cutting short the lives of hip-hop artists coast to coast.”

    Similar to the U.S. government’s Security Advisory System, the Office of Homeboy Security has devised a color-coded warning system of its own. Like the Homeland Security’ s system, the Homeboy Security System uses five colors to designate the threat level of gun violence against hip-hop artists and posse members based on intelligence reports, loose talk in the clubs and “recognization” (sic).

    The color-coded warning levels were explained as:

    Green – Low – It’s All Good – No reported threats against MCs, DJs, posse members or lower-level hangers-on. Hip Hoppers are advised to carry on as normal.

    Blue – Guarded – Aiight – Conditions could be favorable for a possible beat-down or severe disrespect. Hip Hoppers advised to keep dey eyes pilled, yo.

    Yellow – Elevated – Watch Yo, Back, Yo – Beat-downs and disrespect probable, gunplay possible. Hip Hoppers advised to briskly move from crib to Escalade and to avoid stop lights and award shows whenever possible.

    Orange – High – Niggaz Be Trippin’ – Credible threats of gun violence have been recorded. Hip Hoppers advised to travel outside the crib only when necessary. Body armor recommended.

    Red – Severe – Stay At Da Crib – Cap busting is imminent. All Hip Hop personnel are advised to stock up on weed, Cristal and X-Box sports games and just chill in da crib until further notice.
