East Coast Crips


The East Side (E/S) East Coast Crips are a large and infamous umbrella gang consisting of many different neighborhoods located on the eastside of South CentralLos AngelesCalifornia. Despite the name’s suggestion, theE.C.C. retain no connections to the east coast of the United States, but rather it is in reference to the eastside ofSouth CentralLos Angeles (east of the 110 freeway that divides east and west South Central).

But their fiercest battle to date is the on-going one with the Mexican Mafia backed Florencia 13. It is believed that the East Coast Cripsrobbed a Latino street gang for a large amount of narcotics, which Authorities theorized prompted the Mexican Mafiato send a green light for gang members under the Sureños umbrella to attack, not only African American gang members, but non-affiliated Blacks as well.
