I remeber K-Dubbs. AT Horace Mann Junior High they used to be KWSCC Kids With Style then it was Kings With Style and they lil clique Kings Cold Chillin. They used to beef with the Nutin But Trouble's NBT and that shit was seriously intense. From my knowledge the KWS were lil 83's as a matter of fact, and most of the Troubles turned 60's. Of course troubles in now actaully a gang. Those tagging crews unlike street gangs had member from different hoods, so they could have branched out to bangers within their own hood. I had a buddy when i was younger who was in my tagging crew but I went to the sixties he went to the van ness gangsters. LOL shit is crazy!

I remember one of they leaders his name was MOZART he was tall as hell they was Black where i was from but like i said in my previous post it is obvious that with taggin crews they spanded through all hoods and different taggers went to different gangs. I remember this dude name SATAN from NKS and he was also a NHPiru. A lot of busters who banged would join tagging crews so that when they were asked where they was from they could claim the tagging crew instead of they Gang. Funny!

If I remember right, the NBTG shot MOZART in his asscheek, that's part of the reason why he stopped bangin' KWS.(Correct me if I'm wrong!)

Yeah, I saw this Fox special, I remember the Fox 11 was showin' pictures of them fooos with 12 gauge shotguns in their hands. I was kind of shocked because I had no idea that there was a hispanic version of KWS cuz I went to school with the Black KWS.

I always thought that SSk was the first real tagbanger "hood". I remember them being all over the news when I was in highschool. I graduated in 93, so had to be before that. Used to be SSK against EK from what I remember.

Exactly, K Dubbs was a Brown and Black tagging crew just like my neighborhood(ATC). When the bangin' shit started they went in different directions just like most big tagging crews especially if they were mixed crews. As far as the brown K Dubbs, part became their own varrio called KWS13 in the Maywood area and the other part became a click to 18st in Cudahy called SS.18st KWS.

They were mostly in Pico Gardens homie. ...Vatos like "Hell" "Dezo" and some others were the KWS in East Los. They were tight with Pico Gardens Stoners. They all eventually got into Cuatro Flats.They were all Raza. KWS would go at it with the crew TSS. Most of TSS eventually got into State St Locos. Alrato Homie

The KWS tagging crew is still around doing their thing. Maybe not deep but from these pics it looks like they still get up. They have pics on 50mmlosangeles.com a good website for the LA graff scene old and new. Heres the link to KWS pics http://www.50mmlosangeles.com/artist.php?artistId=7684 from that site and link to some Moezart pics http://www.50mmlosangeles.com/artist.php?artistId=1052 good stuff.
