The 59 East Coast Crips are based on he East Side of LA. Their turf spans from Central Ave to Compton Blvd, between Gage Ave and Slauson Ave.. Recently, Street Gangs was able to interview two members of the set. One is named Lil’ Lettuce and he discusses his father, Big Momo (from 59 ECC) who died in a traffic accident in December 3, 1985 right before his birth in March 1986.
The second 59 ECC interviewed was Baby Te-Tiger. He details being shot 16 times on four separate occasions, by members of Florence 13, the Broadway Gangster Crips and Grape Street Crip.
