Bounty Hunters Bloods | Watts, California | Nickerson Gardens

The Eastside Bounty Hunter Bloods are a predominately African-American street gang located in the Nickerson Gardens public housing projects in Watts in the City of Los Angeles.

Prior to the formation of the Bounty Hunters, the main group in this area were known as the Green Jackets led by Rhea (Ray) Boyce which actually extended into the Jordan Downs projects where Al Pygmy was one of the leaders of the Green Jackets in the Jordan Downs projects.

The Bounty Hunters started around 1971 and many attribute Gary Barker and Junior Thomas (1954 – 2017) as being a very influential figures during Bounty Hunter’s beginnings which formed off 112th Street in the projects.

The Bell Haven Bounty Hunters formed around 1978 to the west of Central Avenue just south of the train tracks and then around 1981, Renee McGowen began the Lot Bounty Hunters.

The Bounter Hunters eventually formed the following subsets;

  1. Lot Boys
  2. Block Boys
  3. Bell Haven
  4. Ace Line on 111th Street
  5. Duece Line on 112th Street (original block)
  6. Tray Line on 113th Street
  7. Four Line on 114th Street
  8. Five Line on 115th Street.


Their main rival would be the Grape Street Watts in the Jordan Downs Housing Projects but since 1992 there has a truce between them and the other gangs in Watts. Although the truce has been in effect for some time, there are occasional problems between the Crips and Bloods in Watts, but not like had occurred during the 1980s and early 1990s.

Michael “Harry O” Harris is from this neighborhood and he produced a play in 1987 called “Checkmates” that starred Denzel Washington and was considered the financial muscle behind the formation of Death Row records while he was in prison. Harris was convicted of the kidnapping and attempted murder in 1987 and is currently serving 28 years in a California State prison.

Although Mike Conception claimed Crip, much of his family were Bloods from this neighborhood and he was born in Watts. Conception was a serious hustler and pimp that was paralyzed during a dice game when he was 21, but he got into the music producing business during the mid 1980s, and has worked with Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, MC Hammer, Digital Underground among others groups when he produced the popular west coast version of “Self Destruction” called, “We’re All in the Same Gang” in 1989. He did an interview in the 1999 F.E.D.S. Magazine (Vol.2, Issue #6) and he appeared in the 2004 F.E.D.S. DVD about LA gang history.

A history of this neighborhood was published in Allhood Magazine issue #2.

Their main territory, which is in the Nickerson Gardens Housing Projects is from 108th Street (north) to Imperial (south) between Compton Ave (east) to Central Ave (west). They occupy an area of 0.54 square miles making them the largest Black gang territory in Watts.

Top Dawg Entertainment’s rapper Jay Rock is from this neighborhood.

During the early 1990s, Bounty Hunter members Kevin “Flipside” White, Sammy “Bust Stop” Williams, and Ronald “Low M.B.” Watkins formed the rap group Operation From The Bottom (O.F.T.B.). They worked with Death Row Records and recorded tracks with Tupac Shakur.
