The 107 Hoover Criminals Gang (107HCG) also known as 107 Groove Gang and formerly known as 107 Hoover Crips Gang, are a long-standing African-American criminal street gang located on the West Side of South Central, Los Angeles, California. The 107 Hoover Criminals are an active sub-set of the larger Hoover Criminals Gang umbrella.
The 107 Hoover Criminals Gang originated in the 1970’s, around 107th Street and Hoover Street, between Vermont Ave and Figueroa Ave. They often refer to themselves as 107 Groove Gang, to pay homage to the original “Hoover Groovers.“ However, the Hoover Groovers eventually turned Crips (Hoover Gang Crips), and later tuned Criminals (Hoover Criminals Gang).
