92 Hoovers in South Los Angeles

92 Hoover [9 Deuce / Nine Duece Hoover / ] are a predominately African-American street gang located in South Los Angeles and are the consensus oldest of all Hoover sets. The original Hoovers formed in and around Manchester Park (now Algin Sutton Recreation Center) located on Hoover Avenue between 88th and 90th Streets around 1970. This area eventually took on the Nine Deuce Hoover identity in 1973 becoming the first individual Hoover set started by Melvin “Bloodstone” Calloway. He was later shot and killed in 1979.

    question for 92 hoover. why didNT u guys let 107 hoover vs nine owes handle there own beef. I THOUGHT 92 HOOVERS WERE THIGHTER WITH THE NINE OWES THEN WITH 107 HOOVER

    Bay Area hoovers were started by Big Lonnie who was originally from 92 Hoover. We ran with the Hoover movement but didn’t claim 92….Shout out to 92nd Hoover though…much love from the bay.
