Ghetto Kings are a street gang that operate out of Southern Ontario, Canada. The gang started in 1999 as an alliance between 5 older local Brantford gangs. Since 3 of the gangs were latino, a "Latin King" style was agreed upon. The gang colors are yellow & black. In a town like Brantford, where gangs from Toronto buy their guns & drugs, it wasn't long before the gangs population exploded and they became a menace to the surrounding cities.
