Gangs of South Gate 2018 Edition

Unread postby MaximumCarnage » June 13th, 2018, 9:44 pm

I been doing some thorough research on the Sureno gangs in South Gate. I've seen many lists, a lot of which seem outdated. Started scoping out tags in the city to see what gangs are still active, wallbanging atleast. Decided to organize it all and post it, curious to see if anybody got any info they could share on these SG hoods.

[ACTIVE]

Marijuanos Locos (MLS) - One of the oldest hoods in SG, haven't seen any of their tags so far. But I heard they kick it in the neighborhood of Wood ave by the riverbed as well as the area of Southern and Salt Lake.

Garden View Locos (GVLS) - Another old SG gang, I see their hit ups more consistently spread out around SG than any other gang.

Kansas Street (KST) - Heard that Kansas Street went at it hard back in the 80's and 90's, not so much anymore. Only seen one KST tag so far, near the border between HP and SG.

Southside Playboys (PBS) - The South Gate/Bell Gardens click of Playboys.

Barrio Ardmore Youngsters (BAY)

South Gate Tokers - Seen a lot of internet bangers claiming Tokers so I'm gonna assume they're still active.

Lynwood Varrio El Segundo (LVES) - They got Lynwood in their name but their hit-ups and territory bleed into SG. Seen their tags around the partially Lynwood-SG neighborhood of Long Beach blvd and California ave between MLK blvd and Tweedy blvd. However, Lynwood Varrio Dukes have been constantly crossing them out and tagging the area MUCH more consistently.

Lynwood Varrio Dukes (LDKS) - These guys have the partially Lynwood-SG neighborhood that LVES claims on LOCK. About a month ago, that area had a only LVES tags, but Dukes have taken it by storm. I counted around 24 hit-ups in that general area alone, plus I always see Spook's tags behind the Smoker's Dynasty smoke shop on San Miguel and Tweedy.

Barrio South Gate (BSG) - Read about this gang on old forums but heard they went defunct. Then I saw BSGR (which I assume means Barrio South Gate returns?) above a crossed out Garden View Locos tag on a dumpster for 711 on Alexander and Tweedy. Seen a few more tags since, guess they ain't defunct afterall.

LynGate Varrio Crooks or LynGate Crooks? (LvCRKS or CRKS) - This is a brand new gang from what I can tell. Seen absolutely 0 info on them online. Found out about them because their huge hit up LYN-GATE CROOKS was crossed out by Lynwood Dukes behind the Smoker's Dynasty parking lot. Since then, I've seen them hit up that specific area multiple times with CRKS,LVCRKS, and CROOKS tags. Not sure how serious of a hood they are, but they've got wallbanging down atleast.

[POSSIBLY ACTIVE]

These are the gangs I've seen mentioned on forums and lists but haven't seen any tags, and I don't have my ear close enough to the street to see if they're putting in work in other ways. Heard most of these were defunct tho.

Death Crowd Locos (DCLS)

Orchard Locos (OLS)

Dorothy Locos (DLS)

Southside Players (SSP)

Willow Street (WST)

We need more info on Barrio Ardmore Youngsters (BAY). You left it blank. Any info on them?

I did not know that the Lynwood Varrio Dukes crossed into South Gate.

Never heard of the LynGate Varrio Crooks or LynGate Crooks. Did they start off as taggers?

My research and street knowledge isn't thorough enough to map out each gang's exact territory. Although I could try map out each gang's hitups.

I'm not too familiar with BAY. I recognize their tag but that's all I can really say about them.

Lynwood Varrio Dukes came in to that SG neighborhood hard af. I checked it out about a day ago and saw Lynwood Varrio Osgood Block Locos had some huge and detailed tags leading into Dukes territory. Lynwood gangs are all over that area of SG it seems.

And LynGate Crooks are definitely new. I don't know how they started out but they're essentially a tagger group as of now. They've been hitting up the area of San Vincente and Tweedy pretty hard. Especially behind the back of Lucky's Supermarket. SGB (which I assume is South Gate Barrio or South Gate Brothers?) crossed them out to which LynGate Crooks did the same.

Hard to say with BSG. From what I heard, they been defunct for a while. All I've seen of them so far was them crossing out a Garden View Locos tag with BSGR ontop and BSG13 under it. Don't know how serious it is tho.

I never been familiar with South Gate Brothers at all tbh, just know their name. As for territory, I heard most of Atlantic by Tweedy is Marijuanos Locos turf, especially towards the riverbed.
