LOS ANGELES - Cruisin' on a Saturday night. It's all part of SoCal's car culture and it's come alive during these COVID times. Rider Gang car club was founded by some car enthusiasts and entrepreneurs with big names in rap and acting. They found a way to still get together and social distance.
Los Angeles entrepreneur Big Percy found himself "bored in the house" and founded Rider Gang. Percy's big name buddies and business partners include Snoop Dogg, Cedric the Entertainer, Wiz Khalifa, and Xzibit. They are some of Hollywood and music's biggest names and collectors of some very cool old school cars.
Xzibit hosted the popular MTV show "Pimp My Ride" but says this was his first car club. With the pandemic he says the guys never realized how much they needed an outlet to still get together.
Jason Seymour of Sceven Customs, as in Southern California Customs, is entrenched in the car culture, but he says the Saturday rides are about more than cars. He says they are all fathers and welcomes the chance for an outlet to get together with car loving brothers.
