The Krazy Get down Boys started in the year 1989 in the Marquette Park section of the Chicago Lawn neighborhood. The crew was founded by “Hitman G” as a party crew that loved to throw wild parties and did not affiliate with the People or Folk nation. Over time, The KGBs began to have conflict with the Satan Disciples, Insane Guess Boys and various People nation gangs like Latin Kings and this led the KGBs to become a gang banging crew.
In the year 1992, KGB had a solid alliance with a Folk nation gang called Ambrose that also hated SDs, Guess Boys and People nation gangs. Ambrose was able to invite the KGBs into the Folk nation making the two gangs “first cousins.” After the KGBs joined the Folk nation they had another enemy, the TAP Boys which was a mostly Arab gang that hung out with the Latin Kings. KGBs fought viciously with the TAP Boys in the 1990s and weakened them to the point of near extinction in Marquette Park. KGBs became quite popular in Marquette Park as they now had territory at 61st and Troy “Brother City,” 61st and Lawndale “Getdown City,” 69th and Rockwell “Krayzie Side,” and 71st and California. The KGBs were able to spread into the nearby Ashburn neighborhood at 79th and Kenneth (Rainey Park) “Purple City” and 83rd to 85th and Kenneth. The KGBs also spread heavily in the suburb of Homewood and they set up in Blue Island, Calumet City and Dolton. They also opened a nice sized chapter in Hammond Indiana.
After some time the KGB leader and founder Hitman G was shot and killed in the streets leaving “Lil Siegel” in charge until he was imprisoned a short time later then “Chief G” took over. KGBs would eventually conflict with fellow Folks Two Six and La Raza. The KGBs would also fight a vicious war with Saints and Latin Kings. KGBs really have not lost territory that I know of over time but their expansion stopped some time ago, nevertheless, this late bloomer gang has proven that they can survive alongside older gangs.
