When Zip left Cottonmouth and became Diamondback's enforcer, Barrett said Zip that Romeo would roll over in his grave because of his total unloyalty and childish behavior. Shades remarked on it too after the unsuccessful assassination attempt, noting that Romeo would be ashamed and disappointed because of his son's actions.
