The 107 Hoover Criminals Gang, also known as the "Selos" and formerly known as "107 Hoover Crips", are a long-standing African-American street gang founded in the western district of South Los Angeles, California. In an act of rememberance and to pay homage to the original “Hoover Groovers", members of this gang will often refer to themselves as the "107 Groove Gang". They are an active sub-set of the larger Hoover Criminals Gang umbrella with a reputation for violence. This gang was founded in the 1970’s around 107th Street and Hoover Street, between Vermont Avenue and Figueroa Avenue. The 107 Hoovers are cliqued up with their nearest Hoover allies: the 112 Hoover Criminals Gang and are friendly towards all other Hoover Criminal sets along with the Eight Tray Gangster Crips and the Gardena Shotgun Crips; their only Crip affiliated allies outside of the Hoover Criminals umbrella. They are rivals of the Raymond Avenue Crips, 105 Under Ground Crips, 107 Under Ground Crips, 102 Budlong Gangster Crips and the 104 Hard Time Hustler Crips. Their main Blood rivals are the LA Denver Lane Bloods and they also are bitter rivals of the Hispanic South Los 13. Although younger members of the 107 Hoovers claim "Criminals", older members still retained their Crips identity. The 107 Hoovers have an official branch located in Portland, Oregon founded by former members from California during the 1980s.
