Default The Young Gunz are now the Young Onez

http://youngonez.com/

Anybody know why they changed the name of their group?

Gunz are too offensive?

Just a hunch but I think this might have had something to do with it:



(still an awesome pic and I actually liked Arenas more for it.)

It is a marketing campaign... they choose the name that sells the more tickets.

Actually Stern disallowed the Young Gunz, hence they had to change it...

Hmmm..if it was 3 hockey players, would they be forced to change the name? Unlikely.

Inadvertently racist imo.

What a load of shit!

If ever I am in Toronto and go to see a Raps game I am bringing the biggest sign ever and it will be plastered with guns and shit. With YOUNG GUNZ in huge letters.

F*ck Stern, if he had a twitter, oh boy things wouldn't be too pretty.

Maybe I am overreacting.
