Combination of the words "tagger" and "gangbanger". A new subculture that has developed mainly in southern California. Not really considered writers, they tag, never piece, and almost never do throwups. Often they carry guns and bear more than slight resemblance to gangs. Not really considered to be true writers by writers, but are mostly considered a hinderance and a negative influence on a creative writing and piecing scene.
if you live in los angeles then most people in a crew are tagbangers. they tag their crew name and their writing name and slash out other crews and people and hit up people looking for them and fight with them or the crew depending on who slashed what or sometimes may even shoot the enemy crew even if they didnt slash them out but because their crew slashed out him or his crew.
