Wearing beads dont come from rikers homie, that been going on but mostly with Spanish Gangs ,(I.E. Latin Kings would wear beads more than there flags)....Some sets still wear beads on the East both Bloods and Crips.....Mostly Crips and Kings Though, Crips on the East call beads "Crates"........

i beg to differ.. the beads thing comes from rikers island.. like most trends alot of it starts in prison and taken to the streets.. the kings like the netas started the bead thing in rikers before the ubn was even a thought of up on rikers.. i remember in 87 on rikers withthe beads it was to identify whick gang you were in.. and naturally it was taken to the streets

Not Right dogg........Of course The bead thing came out before UBN.....But The beads wasnt made in Rikers...Remember Latin Kings were in Chi Town before Ny, And they was wearing There Beads(Blk N Yellow) on the Streets and as Time went by IT started to spead in Jails and Such with the Flags,Beads,Shoelaces,Etc.....

I know a few cats that wear beads...crips and bloods alike. I don't think it ever became the "norm" or any type of deep trend but I knew and know a few that do it here in cali.

When I was NTG I preferred wearing Beads rather than the flag... now im Piru I dont wear beads kuz it aint a Piru thing. Nowadays I see more flags than beads. It switches from time to time.
