I think you got us there, man. I actually talked with one of my homies out in NY about this and his comment is basically this:
West and East SIDE is about GANGS, so it all depends what city you're talkin about. The fact is, for the most part, if you throw up a W or an E on a street corner, people are gonna assume your talking about gangs, West Side or East Side, not coasts.
West and East COAST is about MUSIC for the most part (and geography of course). So what happened was you had the East Coast (NY) which at the time was the big center for most of the Rap (hip-hop) shit that was happening. But on the west coast you had a different thing evolving which would come to be known as Gangsta Rap, which was much different than the shit people were spitting on the East. It was easy to see that the type of shit west coast rappers were wanting to rap about (the real shit, the shit they experienced which happened to be some gangster shit) was way different than the shit people out east were rapping about (just keeping the audience hyped and whatnot), and so you had a culture split. People out west didn't want to identify with the East Coast rap. So borrowing from gangster culture and flashing hand signs in videos (using the West SIDE hand sign) gangster rappers on the West Coast sent a strong message: "This is the west, the West Coast. We do things differently. We do shit gangsta." There was no similar reply from the east.
So as far as coasts, the West Coast hand signal was a stylistic gesture evolving naturally from this budding form of music. The East Coast (apparently) never felt a need to respond, so no where that we've seen is there evidence of someone using an East Side hand signal to refer to the East Coast in a similar way.
So if you're makin a rap video, you are from the east coast and you want to throw up an E, be my guest, but as far as I know no one has done that because, more or less, it just throws the West Coast's shit right back in its face, because it was the West Coast which came up with merging Rap music with the Gangsta lifestyle in the first place. (I know I'm gonna get a lot of angry replies from East Coasters who dispute this, but they are just sore losers. Better luck next time.) But, like I said, be my guest, I'm not sure how much harm it would really do.
On the other hand, you should probably never throw up an E in public because you may get shot by someone thinkin you're from the east side of town and tryin' to show off...
So in answer to your question, I just WOULDN'T USE IT. Sorry, but that's how it is.

Russ Dizdar is a current preacher/former ohio police chaplain, who speaks about the massive satanic cult activity going on in ohio, and other states/places. (his facebook is: https://www.facebook.com/russ.dizdar). He lives in summit county, ohio - he helps people that are born into satanic cults get out, receive salvation, and provides protection to them, and also helps bring healing from a condition they often impose on members from birth, called multiple personality disorder (MPD - also known as DID, dissociative identity disorder), which they use to help keep members under control/hidden.. The satanic covens/cult groups do this through various methods of torture from birth, to bring about a 'split' in the personality through trauma - then hypnosis (and other essentially brainwashing techniques) are used on the 'split personalities', which are 'programmed' (so to speak) to be obedient and do the work. The process is known/documented as satanic ritual abuse (SRA - look it up..) - the man russ helps get salvation/healing for ALL the personalities, and can help provide means of escape/protection for those that want out of these satanic cults/secret society groups.These satanic cult groups I'm talking about are part of the anti-christ's satanic army that's spoken about in the prophetic bible verses of revelation (revelation 16:13-14, revelation 19:19), and are secretly operating inter-connected HEAVILY all over the country, and in other places world wide... They have people operating covertly at all levels of government, education, entertainment, law enforcement, and religions/religious groups (pretending to be one religion, while secretly they're a satanist), and they are VERY ORGANIZED, AND VERY ACTIVE. (*Note* also youtube search: 'cia and satanism' - ted gunderson, a former FBI member, has some really valuable/interesting information concerning this topic.. also look up 'MK-Ultra', and 'project bluebird'.... there are official government files/documents available online, concerning this stuff.) These are the last days (matthew 24), and the end of this world as we know it is not far off. These satanic cults engage in the act of casting spells/hexes on people, as well, but christians are able to combat this with the power of God them through prayer, and also deliverance for the satanic witch's can be attained. The preacher russ has powerful spiritual warfare teachings (Judges 9:57, Matthew 16:18-19, Mark 16:16-18, Luke 10:18-20, Acts 13:1-12, Acts 16:16-18, Ephesians 6:10-17) - witchcraft is real (Deuteronomy 18:10-11, Luke 10:18-20, Romans 16:10, Acts 19:18-29, 1 Timothy 4:1, Revelation 2:24), and these satanic covens/cult groups are heavily into it, doing human sacrifice and other things for demonic empowerment (2 Kings 21:6, Matthew 16:26-27, Luke 4:5-7, Acts 8:9-1, Revelation 18:23), and are involved in/tied to child kidnappings, much of the sex trafficking/sex slave stuff, serial killers (for example: charles manson, and richard ramirez -AKA the night stalker, who was from texas...), and also many people believe that some of the mass murderer's/shooters that have been arrested are potentially satanic cult coven members/victims of the satanic ritual abuse, themselves... This stuff is VERY REAL, and it is a VERY SERIOUS SITUATION - the man russ provides massive concrete evidence concerning this matter, and I have a qucik/powerful overview teaching that's posted at the top of my page, with a few links attached to it, that will help bring a strong understanding concerning the situation, while providing evidences as well. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS MATTER, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT! (my face book is: https://www.facebook.com/kenny.jackson.5011)
