E/S 43 Gangster Crips
43 (Tray), 42 (Deuce), 48 Gangster Crips "Hit up".
The East Side (E/S) 43 Gangster Crips (or simply the "Four Trays") are one of the oldest active Crip gangs in all of Los Angeles. With its roots as a faction of the original East Side Crips, they are the first "Tray (3x)" family of Crip gangs, and they have one of the largest neighborhoods on the eastside of Los Angeles, California. Their close allies include the 42 Gangster Crips, which are located east of the Four Trays across Central Avenue, and the 48 Gangster Crips, a small neighborhood north across Vernon Avenue. The 43 Gangster Crips are friendly towards the East Coast Crips, the Play Boy Gangster Crips, Rollin 30's Harlem Crips and the By Yourself Hustler Crips. Due to their alliance with "Deuce (2x)" and Neighbor Hood Crip gangs, the 4-Trays have fallen out of favour with many other Crip gangs under the "Tray (3x)" card, earning them the derogatory term of "4 Traitors" amongst some of their enemies, who are also Gangster Crips. Some of their Gangster Crip rivals include the 87 Gangster Crips, 97 Gangster Crips, the 52 Broadway Gangster Crips, 53 Avalon Gangster Crips and the Rollin 40s Avalon Gangster Crips. Other Crip rivals include the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips. Their main Blood rivals are the 52 Pueblo Bishop Bloods, the Blood Stone Pirus, Blood Stone Villains, Rollin 20s Outlaw Bloods and the All For Crime Bloods. The 4-Trays are also rivals to the Hispanic Hang Out Boys 13; a Sureños gang loyal to the Mexican Mafia.
