starting a crew

Unread post by YoungG » July 6th, 2005, 11:11 pm

I was wondering what it takes to start a crew
what are the expectations and what do you have to have to be considered a gang/crew/set?
Any information is appreciated thanks.

you have to have high rank in a gang already to start another gang... otherwise you will just get laughed at, or possibly killed.. depending on where you live..

yea i heard of an OG wanting to start a new set so he talks to other OGs in the set about it then he goes and starts a new one
starting a gang out of the blu is usually done by kids and doesn't last

When you start a crew (small gang,) first you need permission from the gangs in the area youre trying to settle in. Second, you have to have some down ass fools ready to put in work. Third have a motive, protect the hood, get at enemies, make money etc. If you don't have these three checked, mind as well call yourselves a group of homeboys.

true story- me and some homies started a "crew" called playboy posse. soon enough our membership grew and grew. we started having gang rivals and gang allies. so, in turn we went from being a crew wich was not part of blood, crip or ese affiliation into an independent gang. some of the piru hoods wanted us to claim piru, but we wanted to stay far from any alliegence knowing that we would have more enemies then we needed. eventually our crew died out after 2 to 3 years.

i had this problem back in my former hood... some kids started a crew, and it kept getting bigger and bigger, and they got a lot of attention, and not good attention.. i think some GD's threatened them one day and they quickly faded away...

get like 3 or 4 of ya closet dogs together..you dont even really need a name for ya lil circle...but to seperate yahself from other crews having alil name would do...2nd-if all yah niggahs in ya 5 man crew is broke,get a 9 to 5 or some form of hustle(on the corner with that work,pushin white tees,selling cds,doing clothing etc)..get ya money up to part all 5 of yah .nowadays from the point of view of the boys(cops) or other people you will be looked at as a crew if its more then 2 people.you get a name for making long story short ..1 of 2 things...-you getting serious paper..or 2- busting ya burna,or always starting drama...or maybe its both...if you was thinking about making ya own crew 4 trouble i cant tell you not to do it but you your own man but thats the best route to make ya own crew then follow another tread,system etc....if ya a small time crew another way to make a name is go straight for the big name crews in ya area.after awhile ya numbers will get high@5 heads to like 40 etc...not to give bad advice but if you about getting street paper another thing coming in the game broke is take off crews thats doing they thing,& invest ya money 4 stuff that will come in handy(house money,lawyer money,bail money,money for all ya members to eat off with)...but nowadays alotta crews is just chill only to smoke green crews
