Unread post by spanyloc2005 » August 8th, 2003, 1:01 am

CAN ANYONE DROP ANY KNOWLEDGE THEY HAVE ABOUT THE DENVER LANE BLOOD GANG, I KNOW THEIR HOOD IS ON 109TH AND FIGUREAO, AND ALSO 111TH, 115TH AND SOME OTHER 100 blocks, DID THEY GET KICCED OUT OF THIER ORIGINAL HOOD ON DENVER AVE AFTER FUEDING WITH THE HOOVERS, I HEARD THAT THEY WERE ONCE CALLED THE FIGUREAO BOYS. DO THEY FUED WITH ANY OF THE ROLLIN FAMILY GANGS (40'S,60S,90'S) I KNOW THEY FUNK WITH THE RAYMONDS AND HARD TIME HUSTLERS, DO THEY HAVE ANY PARKS, ARE THEY STILL ACTIVE OR A RIDER GANG, DID B-BRAZY OF WS DLB GET KILLED, WHAT SCHOOL DO MOST MEMEBERS GO TO, AREN'T THEY IN A FUED WITH INGLEWOOD PIRU GANG, WHAT ABOUT PARKS OR HANG OUTS? WHO IS MORE DANGEROUS THE DENVER LANES OR THE ROLLIN 40'S ?

I stayed in lanes hood for a few months, stayed at the house of wanna the ogz, I dont remember if there was any sub hoods, I know at the time when I was over there they was runnin from 97-120 and they had took over 77st from the hoovers, I do no that a lot of catz from passedena denver lanes stay on 115 behind the freeway. They really active, they stay out in from of them apartments on 109 and fig, and they runnin shit all the way to 120, I stayed on 118th and denver ave, I aint think they was that active over there, till one day I was walkin to the liquor store on 118 and fig, and like 15 lil niggaz was rollin on bikes throwin up lanes and like 3 cars full of niggaz was rollin threw just throwin up lanes and shit, first time i even seen lanes on that side, I thought I was finna get blasted, cujz im goin around there sportin all blue cuz I dont own no white clothes cuz I live in Schoolyards Hood. Also lil niggaz be rollin threw with heats on the bikes patrolin threw the hood. I dont think frg is a sub hood of lanes, I'll ask the homies next time I talk to them.

THE 109 DL'Z ARE ACTIVE. THEY BEEN GIVING THE HOOVERS SERIOUS TREATMENT LATELY. THEY EVEN PUSHED 112 HOOVER OUT OF THEIR HOOD NOW. IF U NOTICE ON THE MAP THE 112 HOOVERS ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF VERMONT NOW, THEY NO LONGER ROLL ON HOOVER

Is this a joke about active ws gangs? what about R20s, R30s, R40s, R90s, VNG, ETG, City Stones, etc. Lets keep this topic to the Denver Lanes, and post correct and accurate information.

I have been to more gang homicide scenes in the last 6 months than you probably have ever been to in your life (unless you are a cop). I just came from spending two days in the Nickersons, and if you read any of the articles on the site, you will see that I go to many hoods such as the 60s when that injunction went down. There were 2 murders in the 62 Brims this month, I was at one 1 of those scenes, so where do you get off stating I have been out the field for a while?

The west side has more active neighborhoods than what you are stating. The 50s NHC have been active, the City Stones been busy at it, Crenshaw Mafia, WS Athens, and even the little Legend Crips, who shot up a funeral a few months back. So get out from under that rock you are under. The string is about the Denver Lanes and lets keep it that way.

Also the killings are down for all neighborhoods.

you are wrong if you thinkI am just a spectator. But the Lanes are definitely an active set. Got some close homies from there. I will be posting some info on the lanes real soon, I am waiting for a "dead homies" list for them now.

First off Y.G. I dont know what u talkin on. lanes aint givin the Raymonds no kinda problems. U oughta stay worryin about campinella bizness.

And to the "guest". DL's is deep in dena but they aint holdin down a damn thing. Pasadena Raymonds is the main crip force blastin in dena. DLs and SLs is scared of Raymonds. if anybody gets blasted its the altadena niggas in the hills. And aint nobody in south pasa claimin no pdl. who the asians down there? u sound stupid.

ON P.I.R.U. I KNOW SOME FOOLS FROM YOUR HOOD THAT ARE ASHAMED OF RAYMONDS 102'S ARE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND IN INGLEWOOD OR INGLEWATTS LIKE THEY CALL IT. THE 120'S ARE TAKIN ON THE ATHEN PARK BOYS AND LA DENVER LANES NOT TO MENTION THE CRIP HOODS. LAST BUT NOT LEAST PASADENA RAYMONDS AIN'T DOIN NOTHIN EITHER THE LAST TIME I WENT TO PASADENA WAS IN APRIL OF 2003 TO PLAY IN THE 3 0N 3 HOOP IT UP TOURNAMENT AND ALL YOU SEEN WAS RED NOT JUST AT THE PARK BUT ALL OVER THE CITY.

P.S. THE NELLAS IS FINE ASK TRAGNIEW PARK, ORIGINAL SWAMPS, AND CV 155ST. THEY TELL YOU THAT WE STRAIGHT THEY WON'T SAY IN THOSE WORDS BUT WE WILL ALWAYS BE AROUND HOMIE.

as far as a nigga bein ashamed of 102, if there is such a nigga u need to send me his name and let me know about that. RAYMONDS has a lot of enemies. so what. we still here and gone stay. we got a lot of allies too. but i dont see whats so different from any other hood. PASADENA RAYMONDS is straight killas and ridas because we go thru the same pretty much as 102. PASADENA niggas is few but they all know we there and we killin fools. Ask the dls, the sls, and u can even go up in altadena and ask them bloc niggas too. dont get it twisted just cause PASADENA is full of red rags. the hood is deep regardless cause its all RAYMOND. LA RAYMONDS can come out here, smoke niggas and hop back on the freeway. just like PASADENA RAYMONDS hit the freeway and come put some work in LA. we all RAYMOND. i dont doubt any hoods life, thats all good. but best believe the RAYMONDS is doin fine too, homie. and thats on RAYMOND. matter of fact i would prefer to have a smaller hood cause at least u know who the ridas are. dl's may be deep in DENA but thats it. they aint ridas. might be a few but i'll tell u right now, if they aint deep when they see u, they bitches. and if they are deep, u should see how fast they run when niggas pull the heat on they "deep" asses, lol. i respect any hood that aint deep but still puttin in work cause it takes alot of balls to represent as the underdog CRIP hood in a red plagued city. feel me?
