The PJ Watts Crips (or "ProJect Watts Crips") are an African American street gang founded in the city of Watts in South Los Angeles, California. This gang claims the 112th Street (North) to Imperial Highway (South) between Grape Street (West) and Mona Blvd (East) as their turf; the location of the Imperial Courts housing projects. Beyond their rivalry with traditional Blood gangs such as the Hacienda Village Bloods, Circle City Piru, the Be-Bop Watts Bishop Bloods and the Bounty Hunters Watts (although the Bounty Hunters Watts are currently engaged in an unofficial truce with the PJ Crips to combat the Grape Street Watts Crips) this gang has been involved in a feud with the Jordan Downs' Grape Street Watts Crips since July of 1987 [1]. Before that, the two gangs used to get along and they came to a cease-fire the days previous to the 1992 Los Angeles Riots. The peace treaty also involved all the gangs from the other Watts' housing projects. The PJ Watts Crips are also enemies of the Santana Blocc Compton Crips, Mona Park Compton Crips, Carver Park Compton Crips and the Florencia 13 gang as well. The name PJ Watts Crips is short for the original name "Project Watts," due to the fact that Imperial Courts were the first Housing Projects built in Watts. The PJ Watts Crips were instrumental and deeply involved in the negotiation of the ceasefire for the historic Watts gang truce in 1992 [2]. The main gangs involved, the Grape Street Watts Crips, the PJ Watts Crips, the Bounty Hunters Watts and the Hacienda Village Bloods, used the 1949 Egypt-Israel ceasefire agreement as the basis of their own peace accord, which was put in writing in 1994 and endured for 10 years.
