Interview: Rollin’ 40s Crip on possible Hoover truce

By Alex A. Alonso for Streetgangs.com
March 14, 2010

Baby Runner, aka Double R (Road Runner) is from Rollin 40s Crip and you may have seen him in the documentary “Why We Bang.” We caught up with Double R to ask him what is going on in his life. Although he is cool with Bloods & Crips from various neighborhoods, he has not been able to remedy the rivalry with the Hoovers, their number one enemy.

Because he has lost friends as a result of the rivalry with the Hoovers, not just Double R, but countless individuals cannot forgive the loss of a close friend. Double R makes an interesting distinction between the hard core member and the average member of the gang that’s not out there killing. At 2:27 of the clip he states that if the rival member is a “mark” then he has no problem with him, a “mark” meaning that he is not a rider, killer, or a hard core member of that set.

Part of the 40s Crip neighborhood in Los Angeles goes east to the 110 Freeway and they are geographically close to the 52 Hoover Gangsters.

    XL is Roman numerals for forty and CG stands for Crip Gang! X is ten and L is 50 – When you put the X in front of the L it subtracts ten to make forty. CXC Street on mines E/S!

    Yo real recognize real every hood got a few niccas that just dont give a fuc and will bite any guy tryna eat off they plate. A lot of guys got dead homies out there that can never rest until vengence is served. That sh*% will never change, it is what it is. To da real guys out there I say this. Every hood should sponser a lil guy that got a chance at makin it out of the hell hole he or she been put in. Put money in the lil nicca pocket and whatever else it takes to push him or her through this f#@$ked up system. If it cant be a truce then so be it but everybody respect any nicca thats bein sponsered in any hood. Whoever bein sponsered dont got sh*% to do wit whats goin on in da streets so let em live but let em know that they owe and when the time comes and they’re successful its up to them to figure out some sh*% that will help our peoples get better jobs better houses and a come up in life. If the nicca dont come through with givin bac..well…lets just say the earth is a small planet and anybody can be found for a friendly convo…. In the end every guy out there layin on his back tryna get that last breath can say he did invest in change in his hood and all the sh*% he or she did with their life wasnt for nothin. If you real wit it then pblank this sh*% on and lets start makin a difference.

      Jquan, my brother, what you wrote is some real talk. I don’t bang and I’ve never been a banger, but I do live in a hood that’s controlled by gangs. I’m willing to make some sacrifices to help any of my people make a change for the better. Everytime I read about or hear about a young brotha or sista falling victims to these streets because of banging the first thing that pops in my mind is that there goes another doctor, lawyer, engineer, teacher, etc, that never got a chance to reach their full potential. My brother, it hurts to see so many mothers and fathers crying, because they’ve lost a child to unnecessary violence. Your idea is a great idea and should be implemented ASAP!!! Peace my brother. Keep teaching.

    Jquan, you started to sound good in the beginning, then you went for that “Godfather Part 2” BS.

    U had a good idea to sponsor a youngster in the hood so they wouldn’t fall into that hole later in life, but you failed miserably when your intentions were so you could use that person later in life. You won’t take responsibility to get yourself out of the hole, so you put it on the shoulders of someone you “helped” earlier in life to give you a ticket out. You’d be better off letting them chance their survival on their own where they have a 50-50 chance to survive than to be your indentured servant later in life.

    Are you that shackled to your hood you can’t get out on your own? You are where the white man wants you, in the hood, out of the way, out of their hair and kil#i*gg yourselves with either guns or substance abuse. Your best weapon is not an AK-47, but it’s education. EVERYONE has the potential to earn a degree, once you have it, aint no one can turn you down for a job.

    I’m a white dude myself, BUT nothing was ever handed to me. I fought the streets myself. And I never got a degree and I got turned down for jobs because younger guys “put it in the work” at a college and so they get the job. So I learned a trade and now I make decent money, and I did it on my own, owing nothing to nobody for my sucess.

    All you need is the desire, the rest will fall in place, and don’t tell me because I am white I had an advantage, I didn’t. I did it on my own and it took me 35 years to get to where I wanted to be, but I got there. U can get there bro.

    I think if you want to sponsor a little one, do it because you wanna break the cycle and you have the desire to see that little one go in a direction you didn’t go in. Trust me, u will sleep better at nite.

    Hispanics (some) say that blacks (some) are just waiting around to get sh*% handed to them, u just gave the more ammunition. Get up, turn your back on your homies and get out of that neighborhood and days spent “hustling” and do yourself proud!

    • GangMasher

      YG d#$kface: It’s not Alex’s fault it wont play, but it is his fault that it’s still posted. Whoever posted (maybe Alex) got told to make it private because it’s creating problems for that set. I think if it’s creating that many problems, the entire article should be cut, but if you want to ki*l yoself, go ahead, you don’t sound very intelligent anyway.
