The East Side (E/S) 87 Gangster Crips are a long standing and active African-American street gang founded in the east side of South Los Angeles, California. This gang was formed after the war between the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips and Eight Tray Gangster Crips began in 1979. Their territory is bordered by Broadway Street in the west towards San Pedro Street in the east, between Manchester Avenue in the north to 92nd Street in the south. The 87 Gangster Crips fall under the Gangster Crips, East Side Crips and Coast Crips "card". They are cliqued up with the 97 Gangster Crips; a relationship that has lasted for over 20 years and is still active to this day. Despite falling under the "Tray" card, the 87 Gangster Crips are also long time allies of the East Coast Crips as well, who falls under the rival Deuce card. The partnership between the 87 Gangster Crips, 97 Gangster Crips, the 73 Gangster Crips and the East Coast Crips is referred to as the "Movin' Coast to Coast" alliance. In addition to the East Coast Crips, the 87 Gangster Crips are also friendly towards the 4 Pacc and the Rollin 50s Neighborhood Crips as well as the Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips due to their commonality in rivals such as the Hoover Criminals. The partnership between the 87 Gangster Crips and their Deuce(2x) allies is generally frowned upon by other Tray gangs and has garnered them a number of Gangster Crip rivals. The 87 Gangster Crips are generally not accepted by other gangs under the Gangster Crips card, not only because of their relationship with gangs under the Neighbor Hood Crips card, but also because of their deep rooted hatred for the Hoover Criminals; who are the Gangster Crips main ally against Neighbor Hood Crip gangs. In fact, one of the fiercest rivalries to date of the 87 Gangster Crips is with the 88 Avalon Garden Crips. This rivalry began in 2003 and has resulted in a multitude of gang related homicides on both sides respectfully. Other Tray gang rivals include the Eight Tray Gangster Crips, 52 Broadway Gangster Crips, 51 Trouble Gangster Crips, the 83 Hoover Criminals Gang, 92 Hoover Criminals Gang, 94 Hoover Criminals Gang and the 84 Main Street Mafia Crips. Other rivals include the LA Denver Lane Bloods and the Family Swan Bloods.
