Sin City Boys

I do not know very much about the Sin City Boys. I know they came from the Little Village section of the South Lawndale neighborhood before the 1970s. I theorize that Sin City Boys were one of the first Mexican gangs in Little Village because they had members around 30 …

Ridgeway Lords

The Ridgeway Lords are a well-known gang; however, there is just not much about them anywhere so my knowledge is limited.  I do know this is a gang from the Little Village section of the South Lawndale neighborhood. I have heard they started in the early 1960s but I highly …

Rampants

I know very little about the Rampants but I will do the best I can for now.  The Rampants started up in the Near West Side neighborhood sometime in the 1950s, I think the early 1950s. In 1958 the Rampants came to the Pilsen section of the Lower West Side …

The Paulina Barry Community street gang came about in the year 1972 in the Lakeview neighborhood at the intersection of Paulina Street and Barry Avenue.  The reason for the formation of the PBCs was the startup of the Insane Deuces street gang that started in the Lathrop projects and were …

Morgan Boys

I wrote a Morgan Boys history for Chicagogangs.org but I do not think it is very accurate.  First of all I know now the Morgan Boys have been around before 1989 especially since I have seen pics from the mid-1980s.  It is still possible they may have branched off from …

Milwaukee Kings

The Milwaukee Kings’ story goes back to the 1970s decade in the River West section of the West Town neighborhood.  This organization started at the intersection of Milwaukee Ave and Grand Ave the spread a little while later to Milwaukee and Ogden.  The Milwaukee Kings started in the year 1964 …

Latin Souls

The Latin Souls are one of the only current gangs that started in the Back of The Yards section of the New City neighborhood.  Most other gangs besides old extinct white greaser gangs, migrated to the neighborhood and were not started there.  The story starts out at around 55th Street …
