I think it would have to do with age/size/family.
EXAMPLE:
"BIG SPIDER"-older homie, older brother, bigger homie.
"LIL SPIDER"- younger homie, younger brother, smaller homie.

^Something along those lines, but if thats not how it works in your area or whatever then correct me if im wrong, peace.

I understood it that it has to do with who jumped you in.

lets say a gang member named spyder jumped a kid into the gang.

well, i thought out of respect to spyder, the kid would be
known as "lil spyder" or "baby spyder"

thats how i understood it to work. I could be wrong though.

Monster Kodys little brother was called lil monster, and his little brother would be called tiny monster and so on....
