originally called pirus named after piru street in compton were founded to battle against the ever growing dangerous crips, they adopted they color red and switched thier name to bloods. like the crips they are an LA black gang. And like crips bloods have spawned a large number of imatator sets throughout the U.S.
bloods are not a multiracial gang, whites claiming to be bloods are fake and live in the suburbs and aren't recognized by real bloods in LA. other notable fake bloods are those such as dipset who were called fake by OG T Rogers, and as dickriders of LA gang shit.
Dipset is fake notably because they don pink which is a bitch color and purple which is a grapestreet crip color they claim an LA gang in nyc and real nyc doesn't recognize them, lil wayne is also a fake, OG T Rogers in an interveiw simply smirked and laughed when waynes name was brought up.
they are notorious with thier long time feud with the crips they also are noted feuding with mexican gangs as well.
bloods see those that claim bloods outside of LA as "dickriders"
they deal in drugs and robbery
what's up blood slang used by bloods whom they refer to eachother as
