Hoover Familes near USC

Many neighborhoods can not maintain themselves with the level of competition. They may get pulled into other neighborhoods or they just fade out. Only discuss those areas from LOS ANGELES that are gone.

Hoover Familes near USC

Unread post by alexalonso » September 11th, 2007, 7:30 pm

The Hoover families are now defunct, but they were located by Hoover and Adams and there strong hold was Hoover Park. They faded in the early 1980s and many of their younger members joined with the Rolling 20s Bloods. One of the Hoover Family OGs was a cat named Strawberry, he is probably about late 40s maybe pushing 50 years old.

I dont know the early history of Hoover Family, ... they started in the early 1970s, when there were more Blood gangs in that area. There was also the Untouchable Brims there.

Strawberry was an OG Hoover Family. I think he has been in and out of prisons for years, but I know he is still alive, just dont know where.
