The 83 Gangster Crips (pronounced Eight-tray) are one of Los Angeles's most well known Crip gangs. The creation of this gang has been attributed to a guy named Sidewinder, who is regarded as the main founder who created this neighborhood which was a split of Stanley "Tookie" WilliamsWest Side Crips. Their territory extends from Florence Avenue (north) to 89th Street (south) between Vermont (east) to Van Ness Avenue (west). Their territory also extends on the westside to Van Ness Avenue between 79th Street (north) and Manchester (south). ETG's were strongly involved in the 1992 Los Angeles riots and one-time member Kody Scott (aka Sanyika Shakur) wrote a popular autobiography entitled An Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member while he was in prison during the 1980s [1]. The 8-Trays are rivals of all Neighbor Hood Crip and Rollin 0's gangs, especially the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips. The ongoing feud between the Eight-Trays and Rollin' 60s has been a bloody one, causing more Crip on Crip killing than with the rival Bloods. It has become a rivalry between Neighbor Hood Crips and Gangster Crips, which extends the conflict from the two gangs into a regional one [2]. Other rivals include the East Coast Crips, Rollin 40s Neighborhood Crips, Rollin 50s Neighborhood Crips, 67 Neighbor Hood Crips, Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips, Rollin 100s Crips, Menlo Crips, Main Street Mafia Crips, 92 Hoover Criminals Gang, 94 Hoover Criminals Gang, 99 Watts Mafia Crips, 54 Van Ness Gangster Brims, Harvard Park Brims the LA Denver Lane Bloods and any Sureños gang showing hostilities toward African Americans. The 83 Gangster Crips are also rivals of the 87 Gangster Crips, 97 Gangster Crips and the 98 Gangster Crips due to their alliance with deuce(2x) gangs. Although the 8-Trays are generally enemies towards most Hoover Criminals, they are still friendly towards the 52 Hoover Gangster Crips who retained their "Gangster Crip" identity due to their shared hatred of all Neighbor Hood Crips gang. The 8-Trays used to rival the Inglewood Family Gang and the 99 Watts Mafia Crips, but are currently involved in an unofficial peace alliance to take on both the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips and the Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips. Other allies include the Avalon Gangster Crips, Broadway Gangster Crips, Gardena Shotgun Crips, Gardena Paybacc Crips, School Yard Crips, Kitchen Crips, Altadena Blocc Crips, 71 Gangster Crips, 73 Gangster Crips and the rest of the Trays.
