The west side is NOT, as incorrectly defined, the west coast. It refers to the westside, duh, of a major city. It is used by street gangs if they originate from the western neighborhoods of a certain area. If you live on the west coast, that does not make you west side. That depends on where in that particular city you reside.
Rob: You're from San Francisco, right?
Rob: How are things on the west side?
Bobby: Uh...you mean, west coast?
Stands for Mar Salvatruchas Trece (thirteen in Spanish, taken from the Southsiders or Sur 13)
Mara Salvatruchas means something like Gangster Salvadoran Soldiers....
Anyway, MS-13 is THE most dangerous gang in America, possibly the world. Why? THey have no purpose other than beating, shooting, and chopping up rival gang members...the problem is, they don't check to make sure someone's a rival before they kill them, they tend to stab first ask later. If you see MS-13 graffiti in your hood, don't freak out...most sets that claim Ms-13 are posers trying to get the same attention. Beware, MS-13 is nationwide and also in MExico and El Salvador.
They formed in a funny way....there was a war in El Salvador, so a bunch of Salvadorans moved to LA. THere, they copied the Mexicans in LA and made gangs. The cops busted and deported these gangsters.....and accidentally spread them across the border, multiplying theire numbers. They beat in their members to ensure toughness, and they attack with knives and machetes rather than guns because stabbing is more "up close and personal" so it creates real fear. So yeah...the real MS is scary as hell, the poser MS is laughable.
Colors are blue and white....don't confuse with Sur X3 who also uses blue and number 13.
MS-13 members might chop up a guy who they THINk iss a rival gangbanger, but won't check to make sure he IS a rival gangbanger....and they show no remorse whatsoever.
The clown walk is based on the Crip walk but is much faster and more intricate. Unlike the Crip walk, it is strictly a dance. It is done by people who do not want to be mistaken for Crips, and it has different styles and moves. Other names include the "krypt walk", "clownin'", "cwalkin" with no capital c, "crown walk".
There are some moves in the clown walk that look like Crip walk moves, but it is strictly a dance.
The above definition is partially correct. The thing where you slide on one foot and spell BLOOD with the other is just one move in Blood walking. Crip walking has a similar move except you cross out Blood after you spell it.
Anyway, Blood walking is a style of dance performed by Bloods which is similar to crippin but with no heel toe or shuffle. It sometimes involves spins and shit. Like the Crip walk has a non-gangsta relative called the clown walk, the Blood walk has a non-gangsta relative called the b-bounce. Both are sick.
He repped his set by doing the Blood walk and using his foot to spell out EASTSIDE
The Southsiders, or Sur Thirteen (XIII in roman numerals, hence X3) are a California-based gang with a presence in several Southwest states including Colorado and...Hawai'i? wtf??
Anyway, their colors are blue and gray, their main rival is Norte XIV or the Northsiders. The reason Surenos use X3 is M is the thirteenth letter of the alphabet in spanish...i think..... the M stands for the MExican Mafia, a prison gang which is older than crips, bloods, and alot of other gangs! It dates from about the 1940's I think.
Anyway, Norte X4 and Sur X3 aren't really rivals cause the Nortenos are from NorCal and rep red and Surenos are from SoCal and rep blue, it actually goes back to the MExican Mafia in prison. The MExican Mafia is rivals with a prison gang called Nuestra Familia, Our Family in Spanish, which is way nortenos rep the N and F, and Nuestra Familia owns the Nortenos, like la eMe (mexican mafia) owns Southsiders.
So, Nortenos call Surenos skraps and Surenos call Nortenos busters. Nortenos rep 4 and 14 while Surenos rep 3 and 13. Notably, the MS-13, a BRUTAL Hispanic gang (from EL SALVADOR not MEXICO, for you retards) uses the number 13...they basically stole it from the Surenos...who they don't get along with too well.
If you see Sur X3 spraypainted on some fence in the hood, it's the Southsiders...they're in most major cities in the western USA by now. Do not confuse with MS-13, a far scarier gang from El Salvador (Mara Salvatruchas means something like Gangster Salvadoran Soldiers....)
A Blood gang call used mainly on the East Coast. It is also pronounced BLAT as in blat blat blat, bang bang....gun noises. it is supposed to sound like a machine gun and conveniently begins with the letter b. the crips on the east say "cccclat"
What up Blood?
The verbalization of a machine gun noise, based on BLAT, that is used by Bloods in some cities especially on the east coast Bloods.
What up Blood? brrrat, brrrrrrrreeee! SUHWOOOP
