The Grape Street Watts Crips are a large black street gang from the Watts section of Los Angeles, California. In addition to wearing blue, the Grape Street Watts sport the color purple to sygnify Grape Street, a north-south street in Watts, and 103rd in the heart of their neighborhood. They occupy the Jordan Downs Housing Projects and attend Jordan High School which is located adjacent to the projects. The Grapes have several clicks that make up the entire neighborhood that include the following: Baby Locs, Peta Roll Squad, Peta Roc Squad, Peta Loc Squad, Parolee Squad, 95th, Bandera Blocc 97, 103rd, Dust Town Crip, Dust Town Hoggs, and Tip Top. In the beginning their neighborhood was called Watts Varrio Grape (WVG), which included both Mexican and Black members together. When the Mexicans aligned themselves with the Surenos banner, the Mexican members changed their name to South Side Watts Varrio Grape Street 13, who are still considered close allies, and the Black members went by East Side Watts Varrio Grape but by around 1986/87 the new Black members were known as East Side Grape Street Watts Baby Loc Crips. Their area goes from 97th Street (north) to 107th Street (south) between Wilmington (west) and Alameda (east). They are the largest Crip neighborhood in Watts at 0.394 square miles and the second overall black gang in the area, 2nd to the Bounty Hunters. Their main rival would be the Bounty Hunters Bloods but since the truce of 1992 their rivalry has not been as intense as it was during the 1980s. They are considered enemies of the PJ Watts Crips, Hacienda Village Bloods, the Fruit Town Pirus, Circle City Piru, Ten Line Gangster Crips, all East Coast Crips, Fudge Town Mafia Crips, all Watts Mafia Crips, the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips and Florencia 13. Allies include the Carver Park Compton Crips, Nutty Blocc Compton Crips, Mona Park Compton Crips, Eight Tray Gangster Crips and Rollin 30's Harlem Crips,Farm Dog Compton Crips,Acacia Blocc Compton Crips,Spook Town Compton Crips(A.T.F) to name a few. Disses: Fake Street, G-Strings.
