It certainly came in handy after they were robbed at gunpoint. Robert W. Lewis m, president of Reputable Records and one of "Rep Yo Set's" chief organizers, was filming a segment of the documentary in one gang-infested Los Angeles neighborhood when the confrontation occurred. "Six guys came out of the trees with machine guns," Lewis said. "Every single camera got taken; footage, wallets, watches everybody was handing things over." But word of the cred that Lewis and the rest of the "Rep Yo Set" team had established with neighborhood gang chieftains, known as O.G.s, quickly reached the responsible parties, prompting an apparent change of heart. Everything, down to the last lens cap, was returned to the crew two days later. Project co-founder Charles "Big Chuck" Stanton, the head of Drama Family Entertainment, likes to refer to "Rep Yo Set" as " 'American Idol' for the 'hood." In place of a casting call, Stanton trawled Los Angeles' meanest streets and gang-active neighborhoods auditioning real-life street soldiers who are living the shoot-'em-up lifestyle glorified in rap songs. The objective: to find hardcore rhyme sayers in the vein of Snoop Dogg, Eazy-E and the Game who might galvanize gangsta rap at a time when West Coast hip-hop has largely fallen off the pop chart. With more than $1 million in backing from British businessman Jon Nokes, Lewis and Stanton auditioned nearly 1,000 amateur rappers from 34 Southern California neighborhoods representing various gang sects. They hope the inter-gang musical camaraderie "Rep Yo Set" fosters will translate into a lasting peace on the streets, but the first hurdle was convincing iil jjjju- djdjdv SL dtl& DK YkkkYI tJbBlvVj: ' yaWBBlDjDjDjDjDjBPB8DjDjWsB3t'''lD 'V mL JH DjmDjDjKLjb .leBsnlSHKEIj&iEfiiHiEr life" ' idJ' RICARDO DEARATANHA LOS ANGELES TIMES Robert Lewis, second from left in the back row, president of Reputable Records, is pictured with gang rivals who came together to rap for "Rep Yo Set," a two-disc hip-hop compilation and documentary that came out this month. the O.G.s that it was a worthy endeavor. It fell to Stanton a veteran industry executive who worked with Dr. Dre for eight years, helping to bring superstars such as Eminem and the Game to his Aftermath imprint to handle negotiations. "It was a hard sell at first," Stanton said. "To get to young talent, we had to seek out the 'hood overseers. I had to tell the O.G.s, "This is going to mean jobs. This is better than bringing in a package of dope or a gun into the neighborhood.' " The documentary was filmed concurrent with recording sessions, and docu-mentarians traveled deep into the 'hood to investigate some of the harsh realities that shape gangsta life and rhymes. "We met all the gang bangers in their environment," Lewis said. "At times, that was a frightening experience." In addition to standard talking-head interviews, gang members brandish machine guns in the film, flash gang signs and attempt to parse the ghetto nihilism that results in their die-hard gang ties.

They stand for their existence over there. Same thing over here." In the end, MCs from 27 gangs were chosen to "represent their sets" on the album. The next challenge was getting them to peacefully coexist. Strict ground rules were laid before anyone could get on the mike: no "set tripping." "We didn't allow them to call out rival gangs or mention people who were killed," Lewis said. "We said: You can do a theme song that represents who you are, your colors, lifestyle, where you live, how you put it down. But it's about putting down your guns and reconciling your differences.' " Absent the "up with me, death to you" bolsterism that has characterized most West Coast hip-hop from N.W.A. onward, "Rep Yo Set" still wouldn't be called gangsta-rap lite. An appreciation of "stackin' and jackin'," selling drugs and putting enemies in the mortuary, prevails on almost every song.

Zafr, who stocked the album with G-funk beats in the vein of Dr. Dre. Even though several MCs went so far as to bring semiautomatic pistols into the recording booth, a banger detente prevailed. Marcel "G-Cell" Thomas, who has served prison time for attempted murder, was as surprised as anyone. 'You had six, seven groups at a time, people who have been rivals for 15, 20 years," he said. "Not a bottle broke. It was amazing. We bonded." In July, the film went on to win best documentary at Long Beach's Action On Film Festival, a competition specializing in action and martial-arts movies. The album sold just 400 copies in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan, indicating that the project's biggest impact is whatever improvement it has inspired in intragang relations. "It's going to be a long process," Stanton said. "We're taking it one step at a time, trying to get the community to stand by us. The West Coast needs to stick together. When it does, it saves lives." the real deal grabs you with a solid first line: "You said the way my blue eyes shine put those Georgia stars to shame that night 1 said that's a lie." And it's got a lovely melody. But could this ringleted child reproduce that 11 times? Could I love an album of songs written by someone so young? Could Taylor Swift be the real deal? Yes, yes, yes! Swift's album hit stores this week, and the quirky imperfections in her songs, the sweetness on "Teardrops on My Guitar," the vulnerability on "Tied Together with a Smile" all make her catchy melodies work. Rosanne Cash said melody is the tip of the arrow that lets the lyrics pierce your heart. Swift knows this instinctively. Swift looks at life with a simplicity I abandoned a long time ago, but the songs have a musical maturity that prevents them from becoming country bubblegum music. Swift has essentially produced a soundtrack of teenage angst: "On Picture to Burn," an angry break-up song, she sounds a little like Natalie Maines (in a good way) when she sings, "I hate that stupid old pick-up truck you never let me drive." "On Our Song," she skillfully stretches a metaphor about first love. Tim McGraw which isn't about Tim McGraw but about a boyfriend who liked his music jumped four places this week to No. 17 on Billboard's country chart, and she recently earned a coveted spot opening for Rascal Flatts. This country concoction is contagious. - JANIS FONTAINE, THE PALM BEACH POST 1:30 4:20 7:10 10:00 THE MARINE PG13DTS 1:00 3:15 5:30 7:4510:00 THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE RDLPDTS 1:15 3:20 5:25 7:30 9:35 THE DEPARTED RDLP 1:00 4:00 7:00 9:50 THE MARINE PG13DTS 1:003:155:30 7:4510:00 THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 1:153:205:25 7:30 9:35 JACKASS NUMBER 2 1:153:205:25 7:30 9:35 JET LI'S FEARLESS THE GUARDIAN 1:304:157:00 9:30 1:004:007:009:50 pr t.vr if, MiM t V ' - ' -It t jdjK&i ML,
