Gangbanging was born in Chicago, but it’s the gangs in California that tend to be the face. While Mexican gangs mob heavily in Cali, the main two organizations that the public focuses on are the Bloods and the Crips. If you’l remember, Don Diva was the first to report on the brief “100 Days/100 Nights” situation where the Rollin 100s and 5-Deuce Hoovers (two Crip factions) were competing to pile up the most bodies in 100 days, in the streets of Compton. Gangbanging may have been made fashionable and accessible by the hip-hop industry, but the peril associated with the gangs is very serious, and has been for a long time.
Today, we bring to you, “Crips In Compton.” This oldie, but goody, captures the actions, concepts and realities of the lives of active Acacia Blocc Compton Crips (ABCC). Their turf stretches from West Alondra to Greenleef boulevards between Oleander Ave and Willowbrook Ave in Compton. The Acacia Blocc Crips are a part of the A.T.F (Acacia/Town/Farm) with the Spook Town Compton Crips and Farmtown Dog Crips. As far as Blood rivals, ABCC beefs out most regularly the 151 Original Block Pirus and Hollyhood Pirus. As for other Crips, the ABCC has historically been at odds with Nutty Blocc.
Watch below to see the Acacia Blocc Compton Crips in action. There’s a simple tutorial on how to make “pruno,” (booze made by prisoners in jail) and illustrate their hierarchy. In the last part, an ABCC soldier shows the place where “Baby Lane,” the alleged killer of Tupac Shakur, was murdered:
