Hoover crips started in 1973 and was never apart of the Hoover groovers they were their own gang.

The Hoovers before Crips existed since about 1970.

The Hoovers existed before they were Crips. The Hoovers were non-Crips then at some point in 1973 they put the Crip on it. So the question is, what where the Hoovers before they were Crips? Are you saying there were the Hoover (future Crips) and the Hoover Groovers a separate gang?

Tookie called them Hoover Groovers in his book, and apparently so did Willingham "Chocolate" Noal, the guy that was killed in 1972. He was killed on October 9, 1972 and he was a Hoover. Some people thought that the Westside Crips killed hom and others thought that the Figueroa Boys (i think) killed him. Whatever the case, he was a Hoover before they became Crips, which they did right after that murder.

I aint calling anyone a lie. I just think people's memories are clouded. It's not easy to remember. Did you read Tookie's book? Do you think he is a lie?

TroubleHoov... If what you're folks is saying is true, maybe these Hoover Groovers have something to do with the Hoover Family Bloods that existed over in the 30s. Any word on that?

I'm going to assume you're about 58. Kritter is hard to get information about the hoovers in their original days. So you can attest that you were def the Hoover Groovers. What Street was this on? And What was your relationship with the Hoover Family's? I grew up hanging out on 98th and Vermont, lots of old Hoovers there.
