98 Main Street Mafia Crips

Recommended Posts

The Main Street Mafia Crips [MSMC, 984 MSMC, Shady 80s] This particular faction includes the 98 and 104th Street Main Street Crip. .The East Side (E/S) 98 Main Street Mafia Crips are an African-American street gang founded in the early 1970s in South Los Angeles, California. Formally known as the "98 Main Street Hustlers", this gang is a faction of the larger Main Street Mafia Crips gang. Their turf is centered on 98th street between Main Street and Wall Street. Their territory stretches from Colden Avenue in the north, 104th Street to south, San Pedro/Wall Street to the east and the 110 Freeway to the west. Members of this gang have been known to sport yellow apparel and will often dawn University of Michigan gear to symbolize their gang. It all began in the early 1980s, amidst the crack cocaine epidemic that ravaged many communities across America. The East Side of South Los Angeles was hit particularly hard, with drugs flooding the streets and creating a vicious cycle of addiction and crime. Young individuals, looking for a sense of belonging and a means to survive, found solace in forming gangs as a way to protect their territories and establish a support network. In the year 1985, a group of young friends living on and around 98 Main Street banded together. They were tired of witnessing the constant violence and oppression within their neighborhood, and they saw the formation of a gang as a means to reclaim their streets and protect their loved ones. This group, led by charismatic and street-smart individuals, officially became known as the 98 Main Street Mafia Crips. The 98 Main Street Mafia Crips are rivals to all Neighbor Hood Crips, 97 East Coast Crips, Q102 East Coast Crips, 118 East Coast Blocc Crips, the 97 Gangster Crips and 98 Gangster Crips, the 88 Hard Time Hustler Crips, 112 Broadway Gangster Crips, Eight Tray Gangster Crips, 73 Gangster Crips, the Mad Swan Bloods and the Hoover Criminals (in particular the 94 Hoover Criminals Gang). They are friendly towards all gangs under the "Mafia Crips" banner as well as the 116 Avalon Gangster Crips and the 116 Kitchen Crips. 98-84 Main Street Mafia Crips "Hit-up". *They are neutral with the Rollin 90's Crips, although they may have beefed in the past, you will see R90s members pictured with them nowadays. They also beef with Madd Family Swans, Inglewood Family Bloods, 83 Gangster Crips, Hat Gang Watts Crips and Grape Street Watts Crips. The beef between the 98 Main Street Mafia Crips and their rival gang escalated over time, fueled by a mix of retaliations, power struggles, and personal vendettas. 

BRANCHES OF THE SAME TREE As the days grew longer and rougher in Los Angeles, more and more gangs arrived, which MSMC didn't like. The 84 Main Street's gang area remains territorial, despite the fact that the gang only had a few members. It had an impact on the gang because two members, Curtis Hatchet and Tracy Foster, had died. The killing quickly grew in significance, causing ripples throughout the group. They teamed up with the 98's and formed a number of cliques, including HotBkoyz and MAIN T84M. Each gang is safeguarded by both, and the territory is thoroughly inspected. It seems to reason that the street gang is searching for more experienced and hardened criminals to join their ranks by recruiting this somewhat older age group. They've feuded with the Q102 East Coast Crips, 97 Gangster Crips, 112 Broadway Gangster Crips, and the Denver Lane Gangster Bloods over the years. Right now, the modern-day 98/84 coalition is reaching its pinnacle. Between the MSMC gang and the Hoovers It's been a battle of two gangs vs. one. Furthermore, since the late 2000s, there has been a lot of gunplay. The MSMC is located in an entirely different location than West Adams or even the Low Bottoms; it's almost as though the further south you travel, the more hazardous it becomes. The partnership between the 98 and 84 Mafia Crips is known as the 984 Mafia Boyz. In June of 2014, the Main Streets took another loss. Nut was a member of the Parc Boyz who was a highly-loved and respected member of the gang. He allegedly was standing near a burgundy sedan on the 100 Block of Jamestown St, when a white/silver vehicle approached him with two passengers. The driver's passenger then let off shots into Nut's vehicle, hitting him multiple times and killing him. He was later found dead at the scene. His death caused a lot of confusion within the neighborhood because they simply could not believe that he had died. And of course, there were repercussions of his death. The Transition - The transition from the Main Street Mafia Crips over to the 984 Neighborhood Crips which is a combination between both the 98 Main Street Neighborhood Crips and the 84 Main Street Neighborhood Crips was a tough and long decision. They are the only Rollin Neighborhood Crips on the Eastside. The 98 Main Street Neighborhood Crips claim “90ty Gang” while the 84 Main Street Neighborhood Crips claim “80ty Gang” It started in 2020, at a local party in the area a member of 99 Mafia Crip noticed his girlfriend dancing with a member in the clique. Words were exchanged between the men and came to find out the duo was fooling around with the same female. This small argument became even larger as members from both groups began to jump in and as strangers around the party instigated the situation. This led to multiple firearms being drawn and a couple of shots being let off, clearing out the party. These “couple” of shots left one male from Main Street dead; and when other members from Main Street found out about the death, most blamed Kimani “GetDown#2” Wheeler for being too hotheaded and hostile, which set off a gang war
