Li’l Wayne’s Filthy Few Respect Few Fear None

November 9, 2012

All Posts, News

Major motorcycle clubs have a well deserved reputation for jealously guarding their marks and slogans.

A distinguished attorney named Fritz Clapp, for example, has spent much of his past 20 years suing trademark pirates on behalf of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Clapp calls himself a “lawyer from hell” and the club’s suits are so commonplace that they only make the papers on slow news days. For example, you may just now be learning that the red and white club sued a yoyo maker named Yomega and the mega-toy-store chain Toys ‘R’ Us a few weeks ago because the pair in combination were making and selling $15 yoyos that featured the big club’s death head logo.

A frequently repeated story states that Sonny Barger, who symbolizes the Angels as much as anything, got tired of seeing his club’s symbols ripped off, decided it was too much hassle to actually beat the crap out of corporations, so he hired Clapp to do the job for him, metaphorically, in courtrooms.

The Mongols

The Mongols Motorcycle Club, another well known fraternal organization, has never found its Fritz Clapp although the distinguished advocate George L. Steele sometimes argues in defense of their symbols. It is probably fair to say that the Mongols are a less well known global brand than the Angels so they are ripped off less frequently. And, when that smaller club is ripped off individual members are probably more inclined to simply reason with whomever stole from them.

There have been a couple of well known exceptions to that. An entrepreneur, author and convict named Ruben “Doc” Cavazos helped clarify trademark law for an army of government lawyers when he claimed ownership of the Mongols insignia and then gave it to the Department of Justice as part of his plea and sentencing agreement. Eventually, two federal judges ruled that the Mongols marks were not Cavazos’ to give away.

Cavazos, and the publisher HarperCollins, also had to call Doc’s memoir Honor Few, Fear None because the Mongols’ slogan “Respect Few Fear None” had already been registered by Cavazos’ club brother Mike Munz. The widely respected Munz is now doing a stretch in Victorville and it is debatable whether his claim to the phrase would hold up in court. Copyrights and trademarks are actually only advertisements of ownership and a federal judge would probably rule that the slogan actually belongs to the Mongols as a group.

Lil Wayne

Which raises the question of how both the Angels and the Mongols will eventually react to an entrepreneur named Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., who pursues his ambitions as “Lil Wayne.” Carter is very ambitious. He describes himself as the “best rapper alive.” He enjoys fashion and skateboarding. And among his enterprises is a clothing brand called Trukfit.

In a press release, the artist declared: “My new line, Trukfit, in case you don’t know about Trukfit. Look it up. T-r-u-k-f-i-t. That’s my new clothing line. Trukfit, Truk the world. You’ll hear about it because it’ll be the best clothing line ever….” The rapping god further explained that in his home town of New Orleans counterfeit clothes sold out of cars are called “Trukfits.” And, at the launch party for his brand in New York last January 12 Lil Wayne announced that the “tagline” for his hats and shirts and shorts and so on is “Respect Few Fear None.” Obviously, no Mongols were on the invitation or contact lists.

At the time, Carter was wearing another of his products, a hat that announces he is one of the “Filthy Few.”

    Lolipop by Lil’ Wayne I love this song so much, can’t stop listening to this song.

  2. WWB Says:

    phrases is one thing but check out this dumb shit!

    @ Reb

    I don’t suppose you’ve heard how they got on with the Lawsuit?

  3. Barron 420 Says:

    Lil Wayne is too dumb to know how to ride a bike let alone maintain one. That takes brains n skill. Rappers don’t posses that!!

  4. BadMagic Says:

    George L. Steele,

    Has Lil Wayne heard from you?


  5. George L. Steele Says:

    This is George L. Steele, greetings to all, and thank you for the kind words Rebel. I just wanted to say that I most certainly am no Fritz Clapp. But if you are infringing the Mongol mark, and I get a call on my Mongol hotline, you will hear from me. Just sayin.

    Peace. But do not give up the fight.

  6. Doc Jones Says:

    Just when you think you’ve heard it all, some little puke crosses the line and shows a tremendous amount of disrespect. I’m certain this little piece of shit will be schooled in a very serious way. What in the hell is happening these days? Everything has changed so much and keeps changing. I think that I’m very lucky……I have my friends and family, a great job and I’m staying out of prison. Still, there’s a lot of good people being killed and hurt because of club politics or whatever. Then, you have the scrap being disrespectful and getting away with it. Hell, I don’t know where I’m going with this……Things are just different and I’m having a hard time with it all.

    Nothing new here, meaning music’s blatant attempt at ripping off something official. As for little wayne, he not only call someone other than his father, “daddy” (not his stepfather) but also kisses dudes on the lips…..I guess I’m suppose to be PC but I find it hard to accept a mans gangster when he’s kissing other men. Now, if he were upfront about his “gayness” while maintaining his gangster that would be acceptable. There have been harden gangsters that have been bi, one is or was Ronnie Kray. Either way, this is another move by unscrupulous people to make money on an otherwise well known slogan

  8. Rebel Says:

    Dear troyez,

    Thank you for reading, for commenting and for your support.



    the shirt was printed to be a copy of the web name nothing more or less not for ppl to go around to make ppl think they are The Aging Rebel.most ppl who read this blog understand the meaning on the shirt but then i guess there are those that run with no clue . when someone would ask me about my hat i would say if i have to explain you wouldn’t understand.after this week all ” THE AGING REBEL ” products will be removed what lil money was made all went to BBB and paying for the product it’s self.want to thank THE REBEL for letting us produce the products. there was very lil support but we also want to thank those that did support THE AGING REBEL.Respect, Steve
    p.s. also want to thank those who bought OUT BAD from FOF.

  10. troyez Says:

    On a similar note. I was sporting one of your “The Aging Rebel” shirts while at an auto auction a few weeks back, when a guy asked me what it was all about. I said “I’m not THE aging Rebel, just a fan,” and I told him to come to the site and check it out – that his mind would be blown and that all his dreams would be fulfilled. Since then I’ve modified the shirt with a permanent black marker so it reads “Aging Rebel,” to avoid any further confusion. Hope you don’t mind, I actually did it out of respect.

  11. RLG Says:

    I doubt Lil’ Wayne was thinking about the red & whites when he wrote those lyrics:

    The song contains allusions from Amy Holland’s song “She’s on Fire” and was inspired in its entirety by Scarface.”

  12. Mac Says:

    SingSing nailed it. Fucking sad. PA used to be ok.

  13. swampy Says:

    Well it seems that the “On Fire” Lyrics is not the only song where he refers to “Hell’s Angel.”

  14. YYZ Skinhead Says:


    It isnt English. It’s Horseshitese.

  15. PigPen Says:

    “She got the devil in her, I do whatever with her
    Hells angel, I pluck her feathers nigga”

    i’ve read this three times, and i am pretty sure it’s english, but I have no idea what the fuck it says. I must be getting old.

  16. swampy Says:

    Grumbler, would some roofing tacks and broken glass inside that trash can “spice” things up a little? Respects, swampy

  17. G1%ER Says:

    Lil Wayne “On Fire” Lyrics

    She got the devil in her, I do whatever with her
    Hells angel, I pluck her feathers nigga

    Maybe the lil queer is an HA supporter… Either way fuck him.. Tha slogan is earned… He wouldnt bust a grape in a fruit fight.

  18. Grumbler Says:

    Anarchy Factory is correct. Amazon, among others, is selling the Filthy Few hats, et al:

    The naivette of hideously greedy, and culturally deprived psuedo icons like that gormless twit, Li’l Wayne, isn’t altogether surprising. Perhaps he’d enjoy a thrill ride in a steel trash can rolling down Filbert between Leavenworth and Hyde (31.5% grade) in San Francisco for an upcoming Jackass movie.

  19. Anarchy Factory Says:


    just a sample they are salling the filthy few hats and tee’s with both words,
    respect, Steve

    That hat only says FILTHY.

  22. SingSing Says:

    Dudes ( and gals here) THIS is just a simple Circle jerk round the campfire going on. We are all just preaching to the choir. This is going to be filed away as just another lil sidenote to the BIGGER PICTURE HERE that we-as a community CANNOT FOR FUCK see! This lil speck, this rapper gnat of a germ is only a symptom of a much larger and insidious cancer affecting our community. ALL OF US-You, ME,Rebel (for sake of illustration, ok?), EVERY-FUCKIN-BODY is guilty of allowing our closed to the public culture to have been auctioned off and marketed…We are witnessing the fading away into the good night of this once protected lifestyle…..Our lifestyle is on life support……sorry to say it…

  23. Base Says:

    Obviously mo money than brains and absolutley no imagination.

  24. RLG Says:

    “An entrepreneur, author and convict”

    Good one Rebel! Keep hitting them out of the park.

  25. big paul Says:

    lil wayne is a fag who calls another man his daddy

  26. Joseph S Says:

    That Lil Wayne is a sharp looking guy!! Just kidding he is ugly as sin.

  27. Cap'n Bill Says:

    Rebel, I was referring to the trunk junk counterfeit goods, that’s all…

  28. YYZ Skinhead Says:

    Li’l Wayne completely wrecked a kickass Kevin Rudolf song (“Let It Rock”) by adding a tedious rap about dicking chicks to it. Had the rap any connection to the rest of the lyrics it at least would have maintained the flow of the song. I have had zero sympathy for Li’l Wayne ever since.

  29. Ol'LadyRider Says:

    What’s gonna be the real crack-up is the 18 year old “gangsters” that are gonna buy this shit.

  30. Stevo Says:

    Lil wank more like.

    Stevo 1%er

  31. big paul Says:

    fuck lil wayne he would shit his pants if he ever met a true filthy few member of the ha i hope they sue his bitch ass or maybe big vinny girolamo will rise from the dead and skull fuck his ass that fuckin punk

  32. Rebel Says:

    Dear Cap’n Bill,

    Blatant criminal activity?

    And don’t construe that to mean I am sticking up for Lil fucking Wayne in any way.


  33. Phuquehed Says:

    I’d bet money he’s a little faggot, hence he has that transvestite in the shiny weird shit leaning up against him in the picture.

  34. BobP Says:

    I can see it now, this fuckshit clothing line will be all over TV next season. The “Studded Denim Vest” will be what all the “Sons of Anchovies” will be wearing next season. And the caps shown on the website is definatly Tommy / Gipsy of the Laffing Devils / Sinister Mobsters or whatever they come up with.

  35. Cap'n Bill Says:

    Naturally, he would name his shit for a blatant criminal activity. Remember when that 50 cent character came on the scene with the ‘I’ve been in prison and been shot xxx times rant…’? Well, this is way today. These kids now have these clowns to look up to because that is what is force fed to them by the media these days.
    ’bout time to take a ride, I think…

  36. Jim666 Says:

    just another punk w/ a shitload of cash.

    found the site for this shit he calls clothes, looks as if he has already been contacted as the filthy few hat,s are not on display however the respect few fear none tee,s are aval.
    website here

  37. One Eye Says:

    Well, it certainly seems like Mr. Originality did his homework. It’s no coincidence that he “borrowed” not one, but two, M/C phrases. Just a touch arrogant and disrespectful. Hopefully, his education will be an expensive one.
