He was so afraid for his life he sought protection from Wayne Perry, one of the most feared men on the east coast. In the early 90's, DC dudes started to kill NY dudes over a series of beefs. Jay-Z mentions it in a song where he says they (dc) were shooting at anything with NY plates. A dc dude killed Harlem drug dealer Rich Porter. Read Alpos interview in Don Diva magazine and google his documentary on You Tube. They discuss the DC/NYC beef. NY dudes in the documentary talk about how Alpo had to become a monster when he moved to DC because DC cats were straight killers.
DC/NYC beefs play out at east cost hbcu's all the time. Norfolk State was off the hook in the 80's and 90's.

yea alpo killed a lot of dc folks in dc but ruined his reputation by snitching on them.

I cannot think of one area where Chicago thinks Detroit is a rival. Sports maybe and even then, not much.

Jordan,

You are right. I left out the fact that NY dudes were also killing a lot of DC cats too. It was back and forth. I know a few DC dudes that were murdered in Fort Greene, BK. Like you said, this was probably the only real city beef. One thing that I noticed is that NYC and DC dudes have mutual respect for each other regardless of their differences. I went to an HBCU with a lot of NYC cats. Once you get pass their bravado and arrogance, most of them are cool.

The Houston- Dallas Rivalry- TIME Magazine 30 years ago:

The Best Little Rivalry in Texas - TIME

Quote:
Dallas (pop. 905,000) and Houston (pop. 1,594,000), Texas' largest cities, are separated by 240 miles of small towns and open spaces. They are also separated by one of the most enduring municipal rivalries since Athens slandered Sparta. "Houston," says Dallas Mayor Jack Evans of the grittier rival city, "doesn't wear well." Besides, add Dallas chauvinists, Houstonians are the ugly Americans of Texas. Dallasites, responds Houston Post Columnist Lynn Ashby, "are the Swiss of Texas." What is more, says Houston Businessman Lan Bentsen, Dallas residents "have no sense of humor."

Houston- Dallas Rivalry by the NYtimes 22 years ago:

Houston vs. Dallas - A Boom, a Bust, Two Cities and One Intense Rivalry - NYTimes.com

Quote:
HOUSTON, July 29 — At the height of Texas's late great boom, all roads led here to the overheated oil town that defined the state in the 1970's.

As the oil boom petered out, the action shifted to Dallas, Houston's more sedate rival 250 miles north, which served as the glittering backdrop to the Republican National Convention four years ago, about the time Houston was sinking into a severe recession.

Now a new turnaround seems under way in a particularly intense intrastate rivalry that pits the nation's fourth largest city, Houston, against the eighth largest, Dallas.
Texas as a whole is climbing out of its recession and Houston is leading the way both in economics and civic self-confidence. Meanwhile, Dallas finds itself in the midst of an escalating identity crisis as it tries to overcome economic and governmental problems. Which Will Be No. 1? This shift is the latest in a long tug-of-war that is partly about style and braggadocio and partly about the very real question of which city will become the dominant one in the Southwest.

Houston and Dallas, roughly similar in geographic size, have otherwise always been very different places. With roots in oil, shipping and international trade, Houston has long had a wide-open feel about it, while Dallas has always been a more insular, white-collar town, with a base in banking, real estate, insurance and other services.

''The best description I ever heard was that Dallas is piccolos and souffles and Houston is a steak-and-trombone town,'' said Joe Frantz, a Texas historian at Corpus Christi State University. ''They don't really get in each other's way very much. It's more a matter of ego. Each one wants to be No. 1.''
