The Hoovers [HCG / HGC ] are a collection of several different Crip affiliated street gangs along Hoover Avenue in South Los Angeles in the City of Los Angeles and into Unincorporated sections of Los Angeles County.
The original Hoovers formed around 92nd & Hoover Avenue around 1969 or 1970 and were also known as the Hoover Groovers. They were a collection of guys from various neighborhoods that socialized on 92nd Street when the Crips were in their infancy stages.
As the Westside Crips formed in the area around St. Andrews Park, they functioned with the Hoovers and eventually the Hoovers came under the Crips banner as the Crips philosophy spread throughout Los Angeles. When specific neighborhood identity began, the Hoover Groovers, became the 92 Hoover Crips in the same neighborhood around 1973. Eventually several other Hoover Crips sets formed from 43rd Street in South Los Angeles to 112th Street.
