Victor Cruz Talks Growing Up On The “Rougher Side” Of Patterson, NJ At Hip-Hop Improv
On Friday, October 4, Victor Cruz of the NY Giants was featured in the Hip-Hop Improv Show – TAKE IT PERSONAL presented by Hot 97′s Cipha Sounds and Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), the top improv theater and school in NYC.
During the show, Victor spoke candidly on growing up on the “rougher side” of Patterson, NJ, running with a not-so-queaky-clean crew, as well as his not-so-cordial airport encounter with Dennis Rodman. Cruz shared one story in particular of how he got into a fist fight at school, only to arrive home to an angry Puerto Rican mother telling him he had to strip down to his birthday suit to receive punishment for cutting up in class.
“I am sorry to all Giants fans for keeping Vic out late on Friday, but he did tell some amazing stories. First athlete to do the show and boy was it a doozy… His dad beat him with the cable wire. That’s just crazy,” said Cipha Sounds.
