Here’s one gang leader, who is currently in prison, explaining how he’s upset with CJ for “fake” claiming his set.
Gang members first confronted CJ over social media, asking him to stop pretending to be a member o fetch Bloods. CJ told the gang members that he was never “pretending” to be anything. According to CJ, the only gang that he bangs is “WHR8PTY” – the name of his song.

CJ – WHOOPTY [Official Music Video]
“Whoopty” is a song by American rapper CJ. The song was initially self-released on July 30, 2020, before being re-released by Warner Records following his signing to the label. The song reached number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in February 2021, and has reached the UK top three and the Billboard Global 200 top 10. The song samples Arijit Singh‘s “Sanam Re”
The song contains a sample of the Indian song “Sanam Re” (2015) by Arijit Singh and Mithoon. It is reminiscent of Brooklyn drill and marks a departure from CJ’s melodic rapping. CJ said he received comparisons to late rapper Pop Smoke, because of the song’s drill sound. He said in an interview with HipHopDX that Pop Smoke’s absence inspired “Whoopty”, who he considers the artist that popularized the music style .He attributed its popularity to the energy conveyed in the track and its video.
Pitchfork‘s Alphonse Pierre wrote that while the song “may be the biggest drill record of the last several months”, “everything about it is so painfully unoriginal” in that it combines “Pop Smoke‘s uk drill production with 22Gz‘s lingo” In an earlier piece for the same site, Pierre felt the lyrics “might as well have been spit out by a machine trained on the Raps and Hustles YouTube page” and concluded that “[T]he only good thing to ever come out of Staten Island remains the Wu-Tang Clan“.Tom Breihan of Stereogum had similar critiques for the song, though he added, “The song works. It moves.”G5 Realz Exposes CJ Not Brim Nor Whoopty And Is A Fake Blood
