“The Starting Lineup”: The Orgin of The Crips And Bloods Begin (Volume 1)

by A.C. Moses

This is an autobiography that reveals the early formation of the Los Angeles based Crips which formed in 1969. Moses provides an account of his early life in in Los Angeles during the late 1960s and early 1970s after arriving to Los Angeles as a toddler from Houston, Texas.

Moses’ family eventually settled on 77th Street & Broadway where he was exposed to the “77th Street Mob” which was controlled by the Myles family. He also discusses the influence that “The Avenues” gang had in the community led by the Munson family. After a new middle school opened up closer to home on 69th & Broadway, his friendships at Mary McCloud Bethune Junior High School eventually led him to a groups of teens that would eventually form the Crips.

Moses would leave 77th Street in 1970 after the violence increased between the early Crips and other gangs in the area, but as he tried to escape the street life, he only continued it after moving on Piru Street in Compton.
