The West Side (W/S) 94 Hoover Criminals Gang, also referred to as the "Low Downs" and formerly known as the "94 Hoover Crips" up until the mid 1990s, are a long standing African American street gang founded on the west side of South Los Angeles, California during the early 1970s. This gang is a small sub-set of the larger Hoover Criminals umbrella gang. Their neighborhood is centered around 94th Street and Hoover Street, between Figueroa Avenue to its east and Vermont Avenue to the west. They are rivals of the 94 Playboy Hustler Crips, 98 Main Street Mafia Crips, Eight Tray Gangster Crips, 87 Gangster Crips, 97 Gangster Crips, 98 Gangster Crips, Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips, Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips, Rollin 90s West Coast Crips, Rollin 100s Crips, 88 Hard Time Hustler Crips, 104 Hard Time Hustler Crips, all East Coast Crips, the LA Denver Lane Bloods and the Crenshaw Mafia Gang. They are friendly towards all Hoover Criminals and are cliqued up the 92 Hoover Criminals Gang; their closest allies. The "Low Downs" had a brutal reputation for violence during the 1980s and early 1990s, prior to their transformation from Crips to "Criminals".
