  1. HOOVER CRIMINAL UMBRELLA The Hoover Criminal Gangs (HCG) are a predominately African-American and they have adapted there name after the street Hoover Street. Hoover Street is between Vermont Avenue, Figueroa Avenue on the West Side Los Santos, Forum Drive. The hoovers consist of seven street gangs under the umbrella. The Criminals casually wears Houston Astros as their insignia as they uses the Orange color that is the major color for the team, as that what made Hoovers pick that as there known color they rep also they use the “H” to represent Hoover. The hoovers fued and beef with East Coast Crips, Raymond Avenue Crips, Rollin 0’s Crips, Rollin 100’s, All Neighborhood Crips, Main Street Mafia Crips. HOOVER GROOVERS The street gang Hoover Criminals appeared in the 1960’s, were known back then as the Hoover Groovers as there title. The Hoover Groovers at the time, have been around for quite sometime before the transformation to the Crips Card. One member from the Hoover Groovers, younger brother was tragically killed and the huge allegations were blamed on The West Side Crips. The Hoover Groovers and the West Side Crips came together at the Saint Andrews Recreation Center located on Saint Andrews Pl. The two street gangs came up with a conclusion and believed the Figueroa Boys for the murder of their affiliate. W/S 94 HOOVER CRIMINALS The 94 Hoover Criminal Gang (94HCG) also known as The Low Downs, or 9-Foe Hoover Criminal Gang are a predominately African-American street gang. The Low Downs are located in the housing projects on the corner of Innocence Blvd and Roy Lowenstein Blvd, and can often be seen posted up at the projects, or the corner store near Davis Avenue and Innocence Blvd. The 94 Hoover Criminals are a subset under the Hoover Criminal umbrella. The Low Downs are in a close alliance with all other Hoover Criminals sets, and all under the Hoover umbrella. They rival with sets such as 984 Main Street Crip, Vermont Ness Gangster Brims, all NHC sets, East Coast Crips, 97 Gangster Crip, and 87 Gangster Crip. MAIN STREET WAR In the early 2000s, Hoover Criminals and 98 Main Street Mafia Crip were close and would often be seen together and partying together. But in August 2009, at a house party in Main Street Mafia Crips turf, there was an altercation between the two sets which was allegedly over a female. The beef quickly heated up and escalated beyond the point of saving. The two groups quickly started throwing out disses to the opposing set and their dead homies, which turned into a large brawl between the two groups in just minutes. After the brawl, gunfire was exchanged but nobody was reportedly hit. Hours later, the older heads between the two tried to step in and calm the situation down, but at that point it had went too far. Various Hoover Criminal sets would take part in hits on the Main Street Crips, and MSC would retaliate. The cycle has been going on for some time, and there has been too much blood shed on either side for their to be a truce in the coming years. 98 Main street Mafia Crip and 84 Main Street Mafia Crip would grow closer and form an alliance, dropping the Mafia from their name and forming under a new set called 984 Main Street Crip, and would continue to rival with anybody under the Hoover Criminal umbrella as one. MODERN DAY / TODAY‏‏‎ ‏‏‏‎94 Hoover Criminal Gang, as well as the entirety of the Hoover Criminal Umbrella, are known to be a very ruthless and active street gang in the modern day. They continue to hold down their territory in the Westside of Roy Lowenstein, and will press any new faces seen in the area, regardless of if they have family in the area, friends, or are younger. Having such a strong presence within the neighborhood, it is not uncommon that the Low Downs will recruit the youth into their ranks, with put on's even being as young as just 12 years old. They take advantage of the broken up families, and young men left fatherless, or whatever the situation may be. They are known to have more brutal jumping's for a put on, having groups of full fledged members of the gang beat on members senseless. These usually last for 65 seconds, and they do not hold back regardless of age. The same routine is followed when a member of the gang is put off from the set, at the discretion of the older heads within the ranks. To local police forces, 94 Hoover Criminals are still very much active and have eyes from law enforcement as such, due to their violent nature. There is a gang officer assigned to the neighborhood who takes note of any children from around the hood acting out, wearing Houston Astros gear, taking part in petty crimes and low level drug dealing, and even as much as getting gang ink tattooed at such a young age. Presently, in 2022 the 94 Hoover Criminals are compromised of a youth dynamic, and most younger men in their early twenties are calling shots. They have made a name for themselves as one of the most ruthless street gangs in the streets of Los Santos. U.S. Attorneys » Central District of Los Santos » News SHARE Department of Justice U.S. Attorney’s Office Central District of Los Santos FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Joint FBI-LSPD Investigation into South L.S. Street Gang Leads to 14 Arrests on Federal Charges of Distributing Crack Cocaine and Meth LOS SANTOS – An investigation led by the FBI and the Los Santos Police Department last night and this morning resulted in the arrest of 14 defendants linked to the Hoover Criminal Gang on federal charges alleging the distribution of narcotics, some of which were sold to customers out of two South Los Santos storefronts. The investigation – dubbed Operation Hoover Dam – resulted in three indictments being returned over the past few weeks by a federal grand jury. The indictments allege that the defendants – all members or associates of the street gang, or alleged drug dealers who operated in gang territory – sold methamphetamine, crack cocaine, cocaine and phencyclidine (PCP). One indictment also alleges weapons violations, including carrying a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime. The main indictment charges 10 defendants, including two senior gang members who operated stores where narcotics allegedly were peddled. Bobby Lorenzo Reed, a.k.a. “Zo,” 56, the owner of the H&E Smoke and Snack Shop, and Andrew Tate, a.k.a. “Batman,” 52, the owner of the TNN Market, each sold methamphetamine, crack cocaine and powder cocaine from their respective South Los Angeles stores, referred customers to one another, supplied one another, and directed their employees to engage in drug sales and referrals, according to the indictment, which details dozens of narcotics transactions in 2017 and 2018. The 32-count indictment further charges Tate and a second person with conspiring to distribute heroin inside Bolingbroke State Penitentiary in Blaine County. In this conspiracy, Tate allegedly supplied heroin to Lashina Lacy, 33, of Fresno, who allegedly attempted to smuggle the contraband into the prison for an incarcerated gang member, who, in turn, intended to sell the heroin to other inmates. As a result of this part of the investigation, which included the Los Santos Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the heroin was intercepted before entering the prison. The second indictment unsealed today charges three defendants with participating in a series of narcotics transactions in 2018, some involving sales of approximately one and two ounces of methamphetamine and crack cocaine. The third indictment unsealed today charges two people with distributing street-level quantities of PCP and crack cocaine. The three indictments charge a total of 15 defendants. After 14 arrests last night and this morning, authorities are continuing to search for one defendant, Ricky Blue, 51. The defendants were taken into custody primarily in South Los Angeles, but arrests were also made in South Gate and Fresno. The defendants arrested in the Los Angeles area are expected to be arraigned this afternoon in United States District Court. An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If convicted of the charges alleged in the indictments, most of the defendants would face mandatory minimum sentences of five or 10 years in federal prison. Operation Hoover Dam was conducted by the FBI, the Los Angeles Police Department, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation The prosecutions resulting from the investigation are being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Scott D. Dubois of the International Narcotics, Money Laundering, and Racketeering Section.

  5. The San Andrean Dilemma and How It Complicates Everything James Amato, the alleged puppet ruler of the Los Santos Crime Family, surrendered to the FBI on Tuesday to face an array of charges including loansharking, drug trafficking, and money laundering, all predicates named in a long RICO indictment unsealed last week. Amato is accused of acting as the boss of a small but active criminal enterprise centered around typical mob activities in metro Los Santos. Amato, dubbed by gangsterreport.com as one of the "new generation gangsters", akin to the new blood of the 1990s "who contributed to the mob's downfall" was said to have been dismissive of the old-school values and traditions that were once treasured by members of the mafia. This characterization has Amato stand out among current bosses, many of whom are seeking a return to the discretion of the good old days. Amato, on the other hand, could be compared to "Skinny Joey" Merlino in his brash arrogance and lack of fondness for the old days, which seems to have contributed to his quick downfall, only serving as boss for a couple of years at most. Amato, a Canadian gangster, was inducted into the L.S. mob in 2016 at the request of then-Gambino acting boss Frank Cali, ostensibly to act as the formal representative of Hamilton's Musitano Family on the American west coast. But many speculate that the real reason Cali asked for this favor was to install a controllable operative in San Andreas. According to that theory, the end goal was to pull the remnants of the west coast mob under the Gambino family. This speculative timeline of events lends credence to the notion that the Los Santos Crime Family is now a tributary of the New York-based family. East Coast involvement in the Los Santos family has historically been documented extensively, with the west coast gangsters having often reached out to their counterparts for succor given the lack of homegrown potential. The demographics of major cities outside the traditional east coast mob strongholds have contributed significantly in the downfall of the mob nationally. With few Italian recruits to pick from, these small families have either completely died out or gradually transformed into shadows of their former glory, sustained on life support by out-of-town gangsters like Amato who are either installed or come out seeking to make their fortunes in unspoiled territories. That Amato was able to style himself as boss within only a few years of being 'made' is an indication of how dire the situation is in declining families like the Los Santos group. Apparently sensing that withering on the vine is no way to run their business, there has been evidence of Los Santos gangsters increasingly relying on non-Italian associates to conduct their affairs and act as muscle. Three Mexican-Americans and one Asian-American were indicted with Amato, a fact that stands out in the case. No Italian-Americans were included, which suggests Amato had surrounded himself with associates of other ethnic backgrounds. Some suggest that Amato's induction in L.S. was part of ongoing gamesmanship between the New York 'Five Families', with Cali apparently having trumped his rivals decisively when he made his move. Whatever the intentions Amato's tenure as de-facto boss, as detailed in the indictment, prove that the crime family still exists despite a lack of media coverage. His clumsy and imposed rule hasn't seemed to have helped the family's condition, which could use all the assistance it can get, famously being labelled by the L.S. Times as The Mickey Mouse Mafia (a jab based on the dominant organized crime force in the region, the Mexican Mafia). With Amato in custody, speculation has already begun about who might succeed him - or who is even able to. Eugene Chinaglia seems the most capable contender. One of the only homegrown mob figures known to still be alive and active in Los Santos, Chinaglia is probably the only confirmed member of the family with the experience to take up the challenge of steering a shattered organization. Chinaglia was also named as an unindicted co-conspirator in Amato's case, being listed as the only 'captain' in the family within the organizational chart provided. Other candidates include Sergio "Big Serg" Turrisi, who has been listed by Los Santos crime reporters as the family's only other captain for most of the 2010s, though not by the government. Carlo Tornatora also seems a possibility, rounding out the group as the last of three senior gangsters known to be active and alive in San Andreas. OOC information: We aim to impose our own interpretation of what we believe is a modern depiction of today's 'mafia' on the American west coast. Our style will differ from what you've been accustomed to, both past and present and we hope to adopt a more suitable approach according to the southern Californian demographics. For this reason, you'll see a lot of changes in what is ordinarily associated to this type of faction, especially in terms of our own head count which will demographically outnumber your usual east-coast dominant roster. On the ground level, we encourage characters native to San Andreas no matter the ethnicity. We assure you that playing as non 'full-blood' Italians will not halt your progress in our faction. For more information, feel free to contact @Chuckles, @Mac, or myself.

  6. HISTORY The 83 Gangster Crips AKA the M8V3N Gang are a street gang that was formed to combat racism and hurt in the black community. The group was formed by now two now-deceased founders, Stanley "Tookie" Williams and Raymond Washington. Both founded not only the 83 Gangster Crips but the entire umbrella. The C.R.I.P.S. stood for "Community Resources for an Independent People", originally being a militant action group modeled after the great Black Panther Party. The street gang became too big for Stanley and Raymond to control which caused many groups to splinter and branch off. However, the 83 Gangsters stayed loyal to the two founders and what the gang stood for until the beating of Rodney King which had left every person in Los Santos and America disturbed and unsettled. Despite its monstrous reputation today the OWCC was a peaceful group that only fired back when it had to but now that they and minorities, in general, were being targeted they slowly formed into a more violent group. The 83 Crips split just as the others did and started retaliating against the LSPD during the riots, it was all downhill from here. They began to slang rocks once they were planted in the community in order for them to make a living after all the damage that was done during the 72' Riots. Marijuana, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, and more were being pushed in and out of their neighborhood on 83rd and Roy. They had to protect their turfs and so began a massive chain of shootings throughout the '70s and '80s. In the '80s the 83s became a very violent street gang that didn’t hesitate to show off their brutality and brawn. The street gang had allegedly been involved in the shooting and death of an officer of the LSPD. The Officer, William Rose was fresh off the bench but was an extraordinary talent, so when the LSPD got word of his death they went all out to find and shut down who or whatever killed Rose. April 7th, 89', AKA the Clean up. LSPD officers alongside FIB agents conducted a raid that had taken down the heads of the street gang. YARD INFLUENCE The 83 Gangster Crips have always held power within the prison/jail system. After the mass incarceration of the gang, it did the opposite of what the LSPD hoped and helped spread their influence across the County & United States, known as one of the first crip gangs in Los Santos, San Andreas. The gang became a force in Boiling Broke under "415 KUMI", otherwise known as the black car. The leader of the 83 Gangsters is a founder known as Gerald "O.G Lil Mac" Mcneil. Mcneil is in prison for four murders and two counts of manslaughter during the start of the deadly Rollin 60s Vs. Eight Tray Gangster Crip war. He was sentenced to 111 years to life with no parole. In his stay at Boiling Broke Penitentiary, He built himself up to become the Keyholder of the 3x/Gangster Crip card and now politics on the mainline while keeping members of the 3x Card in check. Mcneil only answers Level 3 & 4 Inmates, also known as the Shotcallers of 415 KUMI. Mcneil & other inmates in the system have transformed the 83 Gangsters and crips as a whole and continue to be a powerful voice in the prison system. Rollin' 30 Crip vs 83 Gangster Crips Around 9:30 PM, Andre Mullings, AKA Coop, was sitting in his car waiting for his girlfriend to come out of the house when two men pulled up with guns (44. Magnum & an Uzi) and let off over 100 shots which lit up the car and riddled Coop with bullets. He died on the scene. After the shooting, the street was hot so nobody could do anything but plan and wait. A close friend of Coop known as Bunky had gotten the drop on the triggerman, Bunky called up a couple of members to roll with him and strapped up. Saturday, 8:20 PM. The Group arrived at the spot where the triggerman was last seen entering Bishops Chicken Shop in Davis. The group waited across the street for up to 40 minutes before the triggerman known as "PeeWee" walked out with two boxes of chicken. Immediately, Bunky exited the vehicle with a Five-Seven, masked up. He walked up to PeeWee and pulled out the Mac, letting off over 60+ shots before running back to the car and leaving the scene. PeeWee was an alleged member of the Rolling 30s Harlem Crips. The Whole thing started over a fight and a series of shootings ensued. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ The Information Discord.

  7. Patrols have been around for years. We have rules regarding this policy including where people could and could not go. For SAMP, they couldn't go too far east, with Artesia Avenue being the cut-off point. They weren't allowed to go in high-crime areas, unless directly responding to or returning from a call. This was strictly enforced. I would very much disagree with your statement that "factions like the LSFD can't be realistic". It's fully possible to be realistic. Like all of the legal factions we go as close to our real-life counterparts as possible, while still making adjustments as-needed to fit the fact it is a videogame, and there will always be limitations. Furthermore, specialized members of the LAFD who are trained and certified in ALS, are allowed to utilize "Fast-Response Vehicles". Their job is to patrol the streets of Los Angeles, and self-dispatch themselves to nearby calls. They are to assess the situation, and let dispatch know if BLS or ALS services are required, or if transportation will even be necessary. Their FRVs do not come equipped with transport-abilities, but they have everything else an ambulance does, as well as some firefighting equipment. Patrols in ambulances may not occur, but for the purposes of the server, we've limited FRV use to members of the TEMS Unit. (A unit which will not be focused on during launch, as it's a more niche area of roleplay). Which is another reason we've allowed members to patrol in ambulances, should they wish to do so. The purpose of these FRVs is to not only ensure a speedy response so people can get the services they need, but so that the invaluable time and resources of the department are delegated appropriately and efficiently. There has been plenty of plot-twists and action during my time in the faction, and it may not have been the case in your time, but we're not talking about your time, we're talking about the present and recent times. We've worked very hard over the last several years, and had many exciting scenarios and events. Your past experiences do not reflect the present-day faction, nor does it reflect the faction over the course of the last several years. With Genny becoming Chief, we moved away from unrealistic roleplay, and aimed for a more realistic faction, keeping in-line with our real-life counterpart. This was not only a quality of life update for the faction itself, but to have more uniformity across all legal factions, as the other ones have based their policies on their LA counterparts. It was the logical step to better replicate a realistic American fire department, as we have two realistic American law-enforcement factions on the server already.

  8. I think that News Agencies must become fully IC. I mean, people can make a news agency and achieve an official slot. However, I think broadcasting publicly like during old days is not needed. Actually, Faux News had something good going on. We can do something like that.

  9. I’d like to see the PD be split between armed and unarmed Officers for realism. Pursuits nowadays don’t really happen, so there should also be very heavy moderation on allowing police to chase people. 90% of cops should be unarmed IMO, and there should be a focus away from policing people IC to allow actual powerful organizations like OC to control the city. Any dangerous situations should also be avoided as PD needs to rp fear of losing life.

  10. Honestly, it looks really cool, and what I was talking with some friends some weeks ago is that it's amazing to see both sureños and norteños roleplaying in LS-RP for once. Not that we didn't have norteño gangs before in SA-MP, but they all lasted too short and the map wasn't this big to actually give them a good opportunity of roleplay since sureños and other gangs were way too big back in the days, where they would end up naturally bumping into everyone around, and with that rivalry, we all know what happened. I truly hope all of you guys can manage to keep it all up and we have some dope ass quality RP.

  11. Definitely agreeing, I don't see a reason why they wouldn't implement it if a lot of people want to roleplay as a mechanic. There's a dutch horrible rp server where they implemented this. It's called the ANWB and they've got a lot of work and people that work for the company. It brings a lot of interaction. For the vehicle it would be nice to have a lay out like this when you step in your vehicle (see spoiler). If the engine turns orange, you know you need a mechanic. If it turns red your car is broken and won't drive anymore. You know if your car is locked when the lock is red, etc.

  12. The best thing that ever happened in GTA SA LSRP was this one cop was very corrupt the roleplay was A+. I expect some good corrupt and reasonable, responding, and brain functional team of police.

  14. In the year 2014, Multiple members of the Grape Street Crips were arrested; The war between the Grape Street Crips and the Bounty Hunter Bloods was at an ultimate high, members from both sides died and their feud would never end. One noticeable moment was when Grape Street member, Jamal Dorsey went on a hit with two other members of the street gang. The hit was specifically on two people who were assumed to be Bounty Hunter Blood members. They pulled aside them in the Black Sedan, with the notifying question "WHERE YOU FROM?!" Jamal yelled from the vehicle. 17 year old, Makai Dunn and 16-year-old Marquis Dubois were on their way home from school. The duo responded with "They're from around the area" which the area was a known place of the Bounty Hunter Bloods. Jamal placed his Glock out the window, with a gray bandana wrapped around the clip, and he fires multiple times striking the teenagers. Makai was hit multiple times in his chest, immediately dying to his injuries while Marquis was only hit once which wasn't fatal. The teenagers would be rushed to the hospital. Witnesses pointed out Jamal Dorsey after a description went out for him. About three months later Jamal Dorsey would be captured and taken into Los Santos County Jail where he would face life without parole. The two teens, who actually were from the Bounty Hunter Gang, had immediate retaliation for them. Drive-bys would happen between the two gangs, and it'll even get as disrespectful as kicking over candles from both gangs of fallen members. The war is still ongoing looking as if there will never be an end to the ongoing war between the two dangerous street gangs. Grape Street Crips currently being on top of the war. After shooting the duo, the two Grape Street members flee to the Rancho Projects, where they crash into the gate, and their car not being able to move, one of the teenagers named Jabari Holmes, exited the vehicle with his hands raised as another unknown runs off into one of the Project homes, not being caught by the public eye of which. Rancho has never been a safe area, the area was known for the 1900's riots. Especially the riot of August 11-16, 1965. Riots were on-going everyday due to the police abuse. Stores were getting raided and the Black Panthers were known to be behind plenty of the riots as well. Holding guns on the side of the street watching over the African-Americans and Hispanics who were raided the streets of Rancho from street to street. There has been a lot of lost lives in the Rancho area, which makes everyone who lives in the area always aware of their surroundings. When losing your friends at a young age, your friend could've possibly been affiliated with the street gang which makes you want to get down with the group to get payback on the group that murdered your friend, which is exactly how it goes in the street life. It's a scary sight to see a person you were in daycare with die right in front of you because they chose a specific life, where they believed they were the safest. The doors of the Innocence High School opened in 1905, this is a four-year public High School on the Westside of South Central, Los Santos home of some of the most famous Basketball players. This school is also filled with many street-gangs across Los Santos. Actually one of the most dangerous schools to be in this modern day. The Innocence Sentinals is the basketball team of the High School, a very good team is what people may call them, but there is another side to all schools, and looking from the outside in you may think the school is good but others may say different. Going into the school for the first time you may see about a race ratio of about 32% Hispanics, 53% African-American, 15% Mixed in. The school is mostly an urban school of course. On December 12, 2021 at a Sentinals Basketball game against the Davis Spartans, the rival schools get into a brawl against each other over disrespect to their home players. Jamar Ingram one of the basketball players of the Sentinals was tripped by a person from the Davis High School, and the two schools immediate had a brawl on the court although some gangs was beefing this time around they were on the same side of the chain. Innocence High School is home to the streets gangs like the 83 Gangster Crips, Hoover Criminals, a minority of the Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips. Most faces from these schools can relate back to the Van Ness area but, most also aren't put onto the street gang. Government officials have claimed plenty of times about the Strawberry area being one of the most dangerous areas to live in. South Central holds a very high crime rate when it comes to murders, drug dealers, and prostitution. There are also most broken homes with their being an either-or missing parent to guide children and steer them into a correct path. Other teenagers would say growing up with their closest friends helps them grow up while older people in the game attempt to widen the eyes of the young generation. Modern African American Culture After the year 1990, it seemed to be a huge rise in broken families in the African American family, you would see the ratio of the African American is the most families without both parents, since 1994. The Crime Act during this time sent away a bunch of gang members leaving them without any parole to get out of jail, as they'll sit up for the maximum charges. Committing a crime you might as just change your identity, and leave the entire country, once you are caught you're immediately going to get sent up for life without parole. It was easy to commit a crime but hard to beat it, because if you were caught it'll mean you've had a lot of obvious evidence which points towards you doing the crime. Since this was still in the Crack epidemic, the gang-wars over money was still at the high, and the younger fathers would be killed in the street-wars over the cash, territory, and the respect of an area, the most earners always won the war at the end of the day being allowed to buy the better guns, cars, and get access to the better product than other gangs. Hood Tattoos & Whackouts With the new era gang-banging getting a tattoo of your set like "Grape Street" isn't the wave, there are logos that represent each set with a specific reason of that logo. For Instance obviously being from the Grape Street Crips, you would think about a Grapes which is something that the street-gang represents. To the right you can see one of the members from the Jordan Down Gang that has "Gutta Gang" a clique from the street-gang and a Grape under it supporting the Jordan Down Crips. People that don't really care about there enemies decide to tattoo logos from their enemies set and cross them out on their face. These are the people who may've done dirty work against that specific group (shootings, stabbings, beatings). These people are easy to give the gang enhancements when arrested though. Gang Units look out of tattoos whenever they arrest people from low-income area as its easy to identify which gang they're from and how much they're affiliated with the gang. This includes the baseball teams, football teams, or even a couple numbers which the set may use. The Old-School Graping The Grape Street Crips was created in the Jordan Down Projects in the 1950s, originally the turf was overrided by the hispanic culture of the Varrio Grape 13 gang, and named the Rancho Varrio Grape Gang. The Varrio Grape immediately accepted the newly coming African Americans into their turf, and the African American's picked up the name Grape Street from the Varrio Grape Gang. Being branded Grape Street the African Americans started to make a name for themselves around Rancho starting a beef with the Rancho 13 gang aslongside the Varrio Grape members. During the 1960s the Grape Street Gang adopted the Crip moniker alongside a bunch of Eastside and Westside South Central gangs. They aligned themselves with the Hub 'N Dub card eventually during the 1990s. Although they're from a different card they have close alliances with multiple Gangster Crip and Hoover street-gang which resulted in other Neighborhood Crip gangs wanted immediate beef with them due to their alliances. The Grape Street Crips also started beefing with all other gangs in the Rancho area, without a care in the world they were also known for showing off big guns and showcasing their lifestyle to writers, and news reporters coming to the Jordan Down Projects. A lot of the children from the ages of 6-12 also wanted to be down with the Grape Street Crips while but the teenagers of the gang refused to put them apart of their street-gang until they became an age where they believe they can actually can think for themselves. The Modern Day Graping The Grape Street Rancho Crips are primarily an active African-American street gang located in the Jordan Down Housing Projects/Rancho Projects on the East Side of Rancho, in South Central, Los Santos. The Grape Street Crips are known for their color of purple to represent their gang, and they are known to be affiliated with the Gangster Crip (3x) card but are one of the only gangs under this card to claim the Rollin' 30s Crips as a neutral group towards them The Grape Street Crips share various cliques with their main one being the Baby Locs. "Three-Tones" from the Grape Street Crips, an OG from was murdered by an East Coast Crip member which sparked a massive war between the two rival gangs. The murder rate was high in the Rancho area due to this death. Which added on the dangers of living in Rancho. People who weren't affiliated with any side was killed just because of their skin complexion sometimes. Even the Varrio Grapes joined in on the war with the Grape Street Crips. The clique names of the Grape Street Crips are Baby Locs, 103 Street, Dust Town, Bandera Blocc, and a lot of others which were made with the young generation of the ages 14-16. They're the largest Crip gang in the Rancho area. Baby Locs were originally made by the Hispanics from the Varrio Grape 13, who then drifted off with their 13 moniker from the Mexican Mafia alliance. The Grape Street Crips also have a very close alliance with the Hoover Criminals. Varrio Grape 13 The Grape Street Crips originally came off from the Varrio Grapes a street-gang of the Mexicans of Rancho which eventually got mixed in with African Americans, who then made their own branch of the Mexican Gang and claimed the Jordan Down Housing Projects as their heart of the hood. Both gangs has preserved an alliance with each other throughout generations. Although, the two gangs parted ways, they maintain a close relationship, and share common enemies such as the East Coast Crips. The street-gang also has a bit of African Americans from their set. In the 70's the Hispanic members joined the Mexican Mafia which gave them the 13 behind their name and their name became "South Side Varrio Grape 13". The beef between the Varrio Grape and the Fudge Town Mafia Crips was the biggest from the two gangs which despised each other due to the maximum blood-shed between the two sets. Varrio Grape 13 has three cliques, the Tiny Wynos, Gangster Locos, and the TRS.

Outfits was made to support the life of Beezy and people supported his family wearing them to the next Grape Street hood-day. The war between the East Coast Crips and the Grape Street Crips seems to be never-ending with the casualties continously racking up. On the same day of the war, it was people retaliating in such little time, which goes to show how ruthless these both gangs can really be. All this is ending with is people dying and no one being able to feel lifeless anymore and more so just wanting to get rid of their enemies because of family members and friends being taken out by the streets. The cycle is everyday and there won't be a stop this is because just like other gangs they're already into deep with their enemies.
