Rockwood Street Locos (Westside Varrio)

Unread post by nela_4lyf » March 10th, 2004, 2:15 pm

Rockwood started out as a football team. As far as who started it, i don't know. I knew alot of the cats from RSL in the NorthEast area, as well as the ones from the Belmont area.

Alot of vatos from wsRSL used to be taggers, writters, muralist etc. Most of the heads from STN,213,K2S, and TAC were from RW or affiliated with them. For a while they were clicked up with XV3 and in the NELAs some were kicking it with MP13. Dont ask for any names cuz I aint going down that road or blowing up anyones spot who used to bang/write.

From what i remember, RSL and 18 were tight. I don't really know what happened between the two but they went at it, back and forth.

The cats (RSL) from my block were more concentrated on Avenues. They weren't sweatin about 18 at all, they weren't sweating about anyone. 18 had no muscle in that area so it was all Avenues... and the Av's were in the hundreds.. the Rockwoods from the NE were less than 20. Every single Rockwood i've met back in the day whether they were from the Belmont area or the Northeast, they were all down for their shit.

TAG ALL CITY was always associated with RSL. My homies from the crew stayed off of 8th and vermont. I had to be careful when i was tagging in NELA or belmont area if folks would ask me where i was from. i really didnt trip because i was black and posed no real threat. this was back in the late 80s and early early 90s.

I dont think any of the other OG members of TAC ever banged like LASER, REGAL or ROM. I havent talked to those dudes since 92 or 93.

ES rockwood started out as a clique off of WS rockwood but GL made Eside clique up with GL before they were able to make any noise. All this can be varified with my homie who got jumped out of Es rockwood cuz he wanted nothing to do with GL.

Nope. ES RW started on Rockwood st which is down the street from City Terrace Park. ESRW was under the wings of The Lott Stoners. They had nothing to do with wsRSL when they started

Your right they had nothing to do wsRSL when they started. As a matter of fact they didn't even know there was a Rockwood in west LA but when they found out they cliqued up and thats where the "ES" in ESRW came from but ESRW was short lived cuz GL swallowed em up. All this can be confirmred by my homie who was in ESRW.

I know RSL had a small but sick with it crew in NELA, does anyone know how they started in NELA? I heard Claxx brought it down there but not sure. Does anyone have any info on how they got there? Small but man for man they had to be one of the toughest in the area.

There is a separate string about East Side Rockwoodin East LA that you can visit, but I was always under the impression that W/S and E/S were not connected or had any shared history.

Nope.

ES RW started on Rockwood st which is down the street from City Terrace Park.

ESRW was under the wings of The Lott Stoners. They had nothing to do with wsRSL when they started
what Gibby wrote right here was right on the money ^^

I see femun didnt try to dispute

I was there on ground zero for formation of East Side Rockwood



I could throw out the roll cal of the orignal 7 vatos ... but I wont.

I can also throw out a roll call of all vatos from THE LOTT 13 who were there with me when all this was happening

I can even give the ones who 2 vatos who claimed THE LOTT STONERS before e/s RW was created and they have founder status now with in es Rockwood ...

but I wont :mrgreen:

I did make a mistake with the abbriviation though they were just RSL and thats why their main beef was with Ricardo Street.

who's main beef was with Ricardo Street Locos? ^^

Ricardo St is a clique off Big Hazard and it was a clique back then as well

and - they didnt start beefing because they shared the same initials RSL initially, that has nothin to do with nothin



I was there the day & saw with my own eyes how and where the pedo started and it had nada to do with initials

who is your friend from who was from es RW?

my info is solely based on what my friend told me. he told me they went at with hazard because of of Ricardo street. You probably know my friend he was raised in City Terrace he's in his lat 30's as a matter of fact he claims his cuniado as from the Lott back in the 90's

PM me his name, por favor

if he's in his late 30's and was active... I will know him.



this is how the pedo actually went down appx 1987

a fat but very well liked hyna from es Rockwood - L****, was seeing this fatter vato from Ricardo Street Locos

both THE LOTT 13 & es RSL were kicking it on east Rockwood, which is a lil street one block down from City Terrace park; my homeboy P***** from es RW started snapping on this big fat vato from Ricardo St

they got into ... P***** wanted to go heads up - one on one

the vato from Ricardo st ~ BH refused, maybe he thought he would get jumped...i dont know, but he jumped in his ranfla and peeled out like a bat outta hell

1 hour back later he came back with about 7 carloads of vatos from Big Hazard ~ Ricardo St Locos

and the rest as they say ... is history
