How did this barrio get so much clout over a short time. I remember them as taggers some years back and now they control one of the largest sections of east LA. It appears that they are very active. Anyone know about their short history?

Not much except this:

New a homie who was from KAM; he was killed by Big Hazard last summer. (Rest in peace Bosko)
He told me that it used to be a real big tagging crew; some taggers lived in Maywood, others like off Chavez and Ditman/Rowan (ELA), to others up by State and Soto.
When they were still considered taggers they dressed more cholo then tagger, they carried cuetes (guns) and they beefed with all the hoods from where they lived and earned their respect.
After a few years of this they just morphed into a gang. Just kind of happened natural. I heared the same thing happened to TMC (The Mob Crew) original old skool break dancers and taggers from the extension projects between Pico Gardens(Cuatro Flats) and the old Aliso Village projects that got torn down.
Pleito with Cuatro Flats resulting in the death of the leader of TMC made them hard. Fued's still running.

Sup Alonso. This is how and why KAM13 was able to come up like they did. The area which KAM13 now controls was always some what of a no mans land. The main barrio that controlled that area was called Ficket Street. Ficket is an old barrio from the 70s which was never really active in gangabnging. They were mostly know for selling juice and booya. At the time when KAM were just taggers FST had no more than about 5-7 youngsters, 3 vets, and a couple of hypes and winos here and there. But like I said they were never really into banging so they werent prepared for any war. Over time KAM got bigger. FST wasnt doing any recruting beside who would want to be from a hood of hypes and winos. Because of the tagging beef KAM got into they were already blasting and what not, so they were getting the warrior mentality. FST never stood a chance. The only other hoods around that culd try to counter KAM was Vickys Town, but theye were always smal time too. Maybe 10 youngsters tops. But the main reason they grew was because they was noit any active gangs in the area in which they now claim as thier hood. It was and pretty much had always been a no mans land. KAM13 would not have ever been able to grow like they did in any other parts of Boyle Heights, with active hoods around. THATS A FACT. If FST woulda recruited KAM in its infant stage FST woulda madd a second coming, but they didnt so they became a lost peice in the puzzle of barrios that once were. Paz

this is kind of interresting i live in central cali which is considered northern cali its just the central valley and theres a norteno barrio called KAMS KRAZY ASS MEXICANS BUT THEY ARE nortenos so i was wondering if they copied the kamsters from LA? they call themselves kamsters too from what i heard they used to be taggers up here in modesto a long ass time ago i noticed they can tag pretty good it doesnt look like gang tagging most of the time and some of them are even kind of like paisa cholos since a bunch of them are just a big family, is this a coinsidence or did they copy the sureƱo KAMS ?

here too..

That's how I found out about them, that the Maravilla and the Dog Pound are suppose to be rivals, but is the Dog Pound a clique of KAM or their own barrio?

Yeah your pretty much on point...They started out as a rapping crew in 92,then a few of the lil youngsters that didnt want to get into Fickett(cuz there were baseheads) took it and ran with it..started to tag it up,,theyve always been a gang though,all the fickett streeters lil brothers and cousins etc,got into KAM.thats pretty much how it came to be..came up through thoose well know spots for Hugo and Piedra...they smashed on every tagging crew/neiborhood that came into thoose parts.

Naw homie

that had too come out a lil earlier than that...

Reason I know for a FACT is because I paroled from Y.A. in April of 1992 and KAM was already ringing in EAST LOS

Aight....dont know if you knew this but my homie Hxxxx started a crew in the 80s called NSK. Your homie Sxxxxx was part of it and so was that other vato he kicked it with. Think his real name was Dxxxx, not sure though. They wrote Sxx and Sxxx from NSK.

I remeber BSK and BAK. They beefed it with OFAs. Some of thos BSKs got into HLP with the vatos that used to be from MP13

Yeah SXX told me that HXXXY (CXXXR) started NSK. Some times we mess around and tag when we are kicking it and those fools are always writing NSK. Back to BSK about 7 BSK's got into Cypress Aves, and the rest (about 25) started the Back ST Lokos click in vHLP. Yeah OFA and TAC were our worst enemies back in the day. Them OFA's were no joke, we would go looking for them with scribers and they would come at us with 9's, beefing with them made the BSK's have to take it to another level.

I got family in AZ and I know that would be funny ass hell to see a Sxx Sxxx NSK over there. They used to get up NSK from East Los to the SGV back in the late 80s. I dont remember if Hxxxx was tight with Sxx when the NSK thing was happening but I never heard Hxxxx say anything negative about him even after they both got into different varrios.

I dont remember Nela area having any OFAs but I do know they had some ATCs like Rxxe and Dxxe, who were brothers from wsRW and ExP. I knew another casual vato from ATC who got caught slipping at Lacys off Ave 26 one time. The BSKs tried pressing a line on him and I had to intervien. I wasnt gonna let dude get jumped or nothing so they ended up going toe to toe. It was pretty even I guess.

OFAs were on the gangster tip from the jump. They were pretty much BNLS with a few RW too
