Inglewood Family Blood [IFG], City of Inglewood
Home > Blood Gangs > Inglewood > IFG
Inglewood Family Gang [IF, IFG, 2478] are a predominantly African-American street gang that formed in the early 1970s before the Blood alliance was created. It is believed that the IFs were started by Jan Brewer and some of the early members of this neighborhood during the 1970s included Dirty Red, Tommy Acres, Sick Mick and J.R. The Chain Gang occupied this area of Inglewood for a short period and was one of the first rivals of the Westside Crips in the early 1970s, but the Inglewood Family identity grew.
Geographically, IF, are the largest gang in Inglewood and their subsets include 77th Street, Rollin’ 80s, 92nd Street, and 94th Street.
Most of their area is policed by the Inglewood Police Department but a small portion of their turf lies in the 77th Division of the LAPD.
They have been rivals with the Eight Tray Gangster Crips, the Rollin 90s, and Rollin’ 100s, but there have been some efforts to stem the rivalry among Inglewood gangs by the Stop the Violence / Increase the Peace Foundation headed by Khalid Shaw during the 1990s.
Since January of 2013, a rivalry with the Denver Lane Bloods turned violent, unusual since traditionally Bloods don’t maintain rivalries.
