The West Side (W/S) 71st Street Gangster Crips (71gc) are a predominately African-American street gang on the west side of South Los Angeles, California. Formally known as the "71 Hustler Crips", this gang used to be part of the Hard Time Hustler Crips gang until about 2006 when members decided to renounce their former "Hustler" identity and adopted the "Gangster Crips" card. Members are known to wear Texas Rangers baseball fitted caps to signify their allegiance to the Tray(3x) gang. The 71 Gangster Crips are located within the vicinity of 71st Street and Normandie Avenue; right in the heart of the larger Eight Tray Gangster Crips neighborhood. This gang may actually be a clique or subset of the larger Eight Tray Gangster Crips gang. Their main rivals include the 67 Neighbor Hood Crips and the 65 Menlo Crips, but they are also rivals towards the 104 Hard Time Hustler Crips.
