83 gcjpeg

The 83 Gangster Crips (ETGC) also known as Eight Tray Gangster Crips or 8-Tray Gangster Crips are primarily an African-American street gang located on the West Side of South Los Angeles (formerly known as South Central, LA) California. Their neighborhood spread from Gage Ave to 79th Street, between Western Ave and Vermont Ave.

They falls under the Gangster Crips AKA Trays (3x) also known as Movin Gang. ETGC members are to sport Texas Rangers or Texas Longhorns, baseball caps with the large letter “T” to show affiliation with Trays. They are named after a popular residential street called 83rd Street in the heart of their neighborhood.

The Eight Tray Gangster Crips is considered by Federal Agents and city officials, to be one of the most violent street gangs, in all of Los Angeles County. They are well-known for their brutal reputation with over 300 active members. They originated from the Original West Side Crips, led by Stanley Willam’s (Tookie), in the early 1970’s.

Feud With The Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips

The Rollin 60′sNeighborhood Crips and the Eight Tray Gangster Crips, were close allies and often fought rival gangs side by side. However, they were full fledge enemies by the mid 1980′s. This rivalry is responsible for being the first Crip on Crip rivalry in history. This feud spilled over into surrounding neighbor gang’s.

Gang’s started pledging allegiance to one or the other (Rollin 60′s or the Eight Tray Gangster Crips). Gang’s who aligned themselves with the Rollin 60′s adapted the Neighborhood Crips also known as Deuces (2x), and gang’s who aligned themselves with the Eight Tray Gangster Crips adapted the “Gangster Crips” also known as Trays or Tray Gang’s (3x).

This long-standing feud has resulted in over 30 gang-related deaths, and over twenty non gang-related casualties.

In The News

The Eight-Trays made headlines, when five of their members was found guilty of murdering two innocent teen-age girls, over a bad drug transaction. One girl was shot fifteen times, and the other girl was shot eight times, they both died of their gunshot wounds. The members were sentenced to life in prison.

On April 29, 1992 the police officers who were involved in the Rodney King beating, were found not guilty. The black community was outraged by this verdict, especially the Eight Trays. Which, resulted in the brutal beating of Reginald O Denny the gang members are captured on videotape pulling Denny from his 18-wheeler.

Gang member’s are filmed from the sky by helicopter video cameras, and are seen repeatedly kicking him and striking Denny in the face, once with a brick, and then picking his pocket as he lay unconscious. The Eight Trays was one of the main gangs who participated in the 1992 LA Riots.

Trynon Lee Jefferson, aka “Psycho,” a member of the Eight Tray Gangster Crips. Jefferson is widely recognized for his assault on three Los Angeles police officers. Trynon Jefferson was charged with three counts of attempted murder against 77th Division Officers Michael Strawberry, Charles Cho and Mark Ramirez.

The three officers, who were traveling in a scout car on Manchester Avenue on April 30, the second day of the riots, when they were ambushed by Trynon. However, all three officers survived with non-life threatening injuries. However, Trynon was shot once in the head and was in critical condition and sentenced to nineteen years in prison.

Sanyika Shakur (born Kody Dehjon Scott; November 13, 1963), also known on the streets as Monster Kody Scottfrom Eight Tray Gangster Crips. Kody was one of the most feared gang members in South Central, Los Angeles. He got the nickname “Monster” at the age of thirteen, when he beat and stomped a robbery victim until he was disfigured.

Shakur wrote an acclaimed autobiography called Monster: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member, which was published in 1993. Kody dedicate a large portion of his Autobiography (book), to the bitter rivalry, between the Eight Trays and the Rollin 60s, who have been fueding since 1971. Which, makes this the oldest fued between crip on crip, in the history of gangs.

Allie & Rivals

Their main rivals are the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips, this bitter fued results in the Eight Trays forming an allince with the Inglewood Family Gang, an former rival blood gang in Inglewood, California. They also fued with the Denver Lane Bloods and the Crenshaw Mafia Bloods along with all Brim Gangs.
