I'd love to hear some of the history about when and where certain gangs formed. I live in Seattle, so I'm mostly interested in Seattle and Tacoma gangs. I'd don't really care about the posers, just the ones that have been around for a long time and run deep.

acacai aint really been a factor for some time out here from what I hear, I read that "lil roe" from there got knocked out at a mc'ds a few weeks ago by some big white dude. someone said he just stood there and got his ass beat.
"Hilltop ain't active like it was B-tween like '87- '96. Eastside is way more lok'd out these days! Don't forget Bloods was on the Hill around the same time as the crips but after the movie Colors came out everyone over there wanted to be blued-up. There are still OG HTB's from the early days near 8th and cushman, a few samoan Pirus out there too. The reason i say Hilltop ain't that active anymore is because since like the early 90's the cops installed those cameras that could spot fools shootin' dice 2 miles down the road! Also, city of Tac has been gentrifying the downtown area while slowly working it's way up the hill. Most
fools get bumped to either lakewood or eastside."
The Hilltop Crip Gang (HTC) is probably the best known homegrown “Crip” gang from Washington State. In the late 1980's this gang was founded by two Tacoma brothers, Diamond and Malone Boyd. They started off as drug runners for Los Angeles gang members that were in Tacoma selling drugs. After they got tired of doing the dirty work for the LA gangsters these brothers and a few of their cousins started HTC. The names of some other the original members are as follows, Evans Boyd III, Kevin Bonds, Robert Bonds, Andre Bonds and Kenneth Boyd who was shot and killed by the Tacoma Police in 1999. Diamond and Malone Boyd are both serving 20+ years in prison.
The HTC gang territory is Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood bounded by 6th Avenue (north), South 25th Street (south), Yakima Avenue (east) and Sprague Avenue (west). The heart of this gangs territory is South 23rd Street & Martin Luther King JR Way. That is the intersection where it all started.
Their rivals are all Blood gangs, especially East Side Piru. They also fight with Gangster Disciple Folks and various Crip gangs. The Hilltop Crips are also one of the most violent gangs this area has ever seen. Many of their members have been involved in homicides, drive-by shootings, robbery, aggravated assault and drug sales of marijuana, cocaine and meth.
As membership of this gang grows so does the cities they are active in. They have been reported in Pierce County, King County, Grant County and Bellingham, WA. They are also reported as very active in Shelton and McNeil Island Corrections Centers.
