From Rap Dictionary
The 74 Hoover Criminals Gang are a sub-set of the Hoover Criminals gang in South Central, Los Angeles, California that was founded around 1973. Their turf is from Florence (north) to about 80th Street (south) between Vermont (west) and the 110 Harbor Freeway (east). The 83 Hoovers are their neighbors to the south located from about 80th Street (north) to Manchester Avenue (south). The 74s control an area of about 0.298 square miles, the third largest of all the Hoover sets. The Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips are the main rival to the 74 Hoovers and their main Blood rival would be the 79 Mad Swan Bloods (other Blood rivals include Harvard Park Brims and the Denver Lane Bloods).

The 74 Hoovers are also allies of the Kitchen Crips and the Hispanic 18th Street Gang as they both share hatred for most of the same enemies. Their closes Hoover allies are the 83 Hoover Criminals Gang.
