40 AVALON GANGSTER CRIP Fortieth Street Swanging A's History, Baby Avalon Crips The 40 Avalon Gangster Crip (40AGC) street gang were formed in the mid-1980s. The father-set for all the Avalon Gangster Crips was founded by Darrell Peterson also known as "The Godfather of Crips" in the Avalon Gardens Projects. Darrell Peterson broke away from the Eastside Crips like many others after Raymond Washington was incarcerated. The influence of the 88 Avalon Garden Crips trickled down onto various other areas as time went by. The Red Door was an abandoned house in Rancho that was dubbed a hang-out spot for the youth in the 1970s. Fights, gambling, and other mischievous events would happen at the Red Door. A large majority of the youth who hanged at the Red Door would later form the Avalon Baby Crips, an off-shoot of the Avalon Garden Crips that Peterson formed. In the 1970s all the Crip gangs in South Central were at peace and altercations would never escalate past fist fights up until the 1980s. Five Tray Avalons, The Businessmen The Businessmen were one of the few drug groups in South Los Santos in the 1980s. Many of the founders of the Businessmen were Avalon Baby Crips who were heavy into the drug trade, while others were from surrounding gangs. They controlled a large portion of the Rancho area in their heyday. The Businessmen, Five Deuce Broadway's Whitey Enterprises, and the Four Tray Gangster Crip's (formerly known as Four Tray Avalon) Third World were originally in a friendly competition for the drug trade in South LS at the time. Lil C-Note from 52 Broadway Gangster Crip was killed by a younger Four Tray member during a football game at BJ Smith Park. The slaying of a respected Broadway led to the start of a war between the Broadways and Four Tray Avalons. The 53 Avalons remained neutral as long as they could. When the Five Tray Avalons would attend parties with the Four Trays, they would blatantly disrespect the Broadways. The Five Tray Avalons were forced to fight with both gangs due to trying to remain neutral and defending either side up until the Four Trays were fed up and dropped their Avalon banner. The Four Trays created the term 'moving' for the Gangster Crip card and out of spite the Avalons say that they are 'swanging' rather than 'moving'. The O-Zone, 40 Avalons A portion of Rancho by Jamestown Street and Macdonald Street went by the O-Zone. This area was controlled by a separate clique outside of Whitey Enterprises, Third World, and the Businessmen. The O-Zones gravitated more to the Five Tray Avalons and became the 40 Avalon Gangster Crips. The 40 Avalons had a much closer relationship with the Four Trays which took much longer to break in comparison to the Five Trays. The Four Tray Gangster Crips began to resent the 40 Avalons for siding with the Five Trays and they were immediately brought into the war. The war between the 40 Avalons became a much more violent one in comparison to the Five Tray and Four Tray war. As gang violence became more prevalent, the drug cliques began to be less lenient on drug territory. Many of the original crews would start to favorite one particular gang rather than allowing gang members from all over to get money. The drug money that at one time was used to buy flashy cars and jewelry began to be used to purchase firearms to retaliate against rival gangs. The Businessmen lasted for about four different generations and after the Baby Businessmen they fizzled out. The O-Zones eventually followed suit and began to solely push the Avalon banner. The drug war later became a full fledged gang war with causalities stemming from retaliation rather than turf. You were either from Five Deuce Broadways, Five Tray Avalon, or Four Tray Gangster Crip. Modern Times, The Death of Lady Swang In comparison to the Five Trays and other Avalon sets, the 40 Avalons are much smaller. They often frontline many of the wars the Avalons have taken part in, and as a result have lost various members. The younger generation have taken on the name YSA, also known as the Young Squad Avalons. These members have shown to be more prone to drug use and less money oriented. With heavy gentrification and arrests occurring within the ranks of the 40 Avalons, it is safe to assume that they are one indictment away from completely being dismantled. The 40 Avalons are recently coming off the death of Deandra Hill, also known as Lady Swang to gang members alike. On November 6th, 2021, Deandra was murdered on Carson Avenue in the middle of the night. It was rumored that the shooting came from retaliation from a 66 East Coast Crip she set-up to be robbed. The death of Lady Swang catapulted their war with 66ECC. It would be shortly after that a prominent member from ECC would be shot & killed Downtown Los Santos at a nighttime car show. As of 2022, the gang is primarily beefing with various bloods, Neighborhood Crips, Gangster Crips, & Sureno sets. Remaining small in numbers as of lately. The 40 Avalon Gangster Crips have seldomly been able to let their guard down and has instilled a militarized program to prevent any more deaths within the set. The program was originally conceptualized by the 88 Avalon Garden Crips, who at the time were in a heated on-going war with the 87 & 97 Gangster Crip. The idea behind it was pushed by The God Father, pretty much enacting martial law in his own neighborhood, giving woman and children a curfew at 6:30PM. They were also told to stay away from windows or their front doors because they feared their rivals would do a drive-by. This was passed down to the other Avalon sets who were in active wars.
