Gangster Disciples (GD)

Gangster Disciples

The Black Gangster Disciples, often abbreviated “BGDN” “GDs”, is a gang from the South-side of Los Santos that was created in the 1960s. It was formed by the leader of Supreme Gangsters, Larry Hoover, and the leader of the Black Disciples, David Barksdale. The two groups merged in the 1960s to form a new gang alliance called the Black Gangster Disciple Nation (BGDN).

The BGDN has in the past made several attempts to clean its name and image. Some of the Gangster Disciples members have taken out ‘B’ from the gang’s name, and go simply by Gangster Disciples (GDs). The GDs spent some time in the political world working with other gangs such as the Vice Lords, Young Lords, Black Disciples, and Latin King through the ‘Growth and Development Movement”. Many GDs gang members not located in Chicago often go by the original name Black Gangster Disciples (BGDN). BGDN is also part of a phenomenon taking place in the army, where gang members are joining the army. The GDs are said to be found in the U.S. and American bases oversea. The gang often leaves their graffiti in bases.

History

The Gangster Disciples’ history can be traced back to the 1960s. Larry Hoover, often regarded as the founder of the Gangster Disciples, was born in November 30, 1950 in Jackson, Mississippi. Larry Hoover moved with his family to Chicago when he was 4, when he turned 13, he joined a gang called the Supreme Gangsters which was located in his neighborhood. While a sophomore in high school, Larry Hoover was gunned down by a rival gang member on his first day of school and got kicked out as a result. While out of school, and with no job, he turned to a life of crime, ranging from prostitutes, gamblers, and drug dealers. Larry Hoover eventually became the leader of the Supreme Gangsters, and in 1966 Hoover and the gang overpowered the King Cobras , which forced the remaining cobras to ally themselves with the Black Disciples Nation which was under David Barksdale’s control. Larry Hoover would later merge the Gangster Disciples with numerous other gangs to form the Gangster Nation. Gangster Nation was a merge between the Supreme Gangsters, African Sniper Gangsters, Raven Gangsters, High Supreme Gangsters, Maniac Gangsters,Russian Gangsters, Mafia Gangsters, 75th Street Syndicate Gangsters, Gent town Gangsters, Outlaw Gangsters, 95th Street Supreme Gangsters, the Dells Gangsters, East side Syndicate Gangsters, West Side Supreme Gangsters, Racketeer Gangsters, Imperial Gangsters, and the Black Pimp Gangsters of the West Side.

The Gangster Nation’s size was increasing; however, they were still trailing the Black Disciples and the Black P. Stone Rangers. David Barksdale was the leader of the Black Disciples, and Jeff Fort was the leader of the Black P. Stones. Jeff Fort wanted to join forces with Larry Hoover and promised a high leadership in the new, realizing that his new position would be lower than his current, Larry Hoover declined. In 1969, instead of joining forces with the Black P. Stone, Larry Hoover formed an alliance with the Black Disciples which caused them to adapt a new name “Black Gangster Disciples”(BGDN). The BGDN alliance ended the war that was going on between the Gangster Nation and the Black Disciples in the 60s.

The BGDN started turning their ways around after the formation of the new alliance and participated in numerous community programs. The gang opened restaurants and gas stations and even went as far as to steer young kids in school toward the right direction. On the surface, it looked as if the BGDN was moving toward a positive direction; however, in beginning in the 1970s, massive amount of drugs started to flood the very same black community they were helping. The BGDN was deep in the drug trade, many of their members started to get rich off the drug trade, while some of their members fell victim to the addicted substances they were selling. Larry Hoover and Andrew Young were found guilty of Murder in 1973 and were sentenced to 150-200 years each for murdering William Young, a drug addict believed to have stolen one of the gang’s supplies of drug. Joshua would later test testify against both Hoover and Young, and saying that he witnessed both of them kidnapping William Young.

The alliance between the BGDs and BDs was shot lived, in 1991, an inter alliance war was started and they started shooting at one another. The war between the two gangs set bad precedence for the folk nation, which would later cause multiple other inter alliance wars to happen. When the war broke out between the BGDs and the BDs, the BGDs were so mad that they removed ‘Black’ from their name and went simply by ‘Gangster Disciples’(GDs). The GDs also became the biggest gang in Chicago in the 1990s. Larry Hoover’s power over the gang was so great, that in 1993 about 10,000 Gangster Disciples showed up to hear Hoover speak on a phone from prison. During the meeting Hoover pushed Growth and Development concept, which claimed that GDs were no longer operating in the criminal world. However, in 1995, in an effort to hurt the GDs’ leader ship, operation Headache was launched, which took down 39 high ranking Gangster Disciples members. As a direct result of this operation, Hoover was given a life sentence and moved to a more secured prison location.

Los Santos

With the loss of Larry Hoover, the remaining members of GD would be rapidly broken apart as several members would travel all throughout the world to spread the message GD's followed. Lemar Nelson and Tobi Grimes would both come to Los Santos in an attempt to spread the message, they would stumble upon each other at a bar in Willowfield, after several thorough conversations they'd come to the decision to join together to spread the brotherhood and the message of the six pointed star.

GD's can be seen at Idlewood, west of the ganton tracks.

Criminal Activities

The Gangster Disciples were mainly known for Street-level drug distribution, assault, auto theft, firearms violations, fraud, homicide, prostitution rings, money laundering. These are the main sources of income for the brotherhood, and is cherished very dearly. With an estimated annual revenue in excess of $10 million from Los Santo's narcotics sales and street tax (its total income from various front organizations, social service scams, and other illegal income sources is difficult to assess), the brotherhood is an, albeit illegal, home-grown company in its own sort.

Gangster Disciples’ main symbol is the six-pointed star which looks very much like the Star of David. The Star of David is often said to be a tribute to their founder David Barksdale, the star’s six points stand for love, life, loyalty, understanding, knowledge, and unity.

LOVE: Love of the Nation is greater than mere love alone, because we have a brotherhood in which love is as deep as the deep blue sea.
LIFE: Life commitment to the Nation for the betterment of ourselves as well as the Nation and each committed brother within the Nation, and our Nation's teachings, laws, creeds, symbols, philosophy and defense.
LOYALTY: To yourself, and each committed brother of our Nation.
UNITY: Collectively embraces all concepts, ideas, and actions that apply to our Nation. Togetherness is essential in order for us to continue our survival.
KNOWLEDGE: Is insight, therefore it is priceless, it gives one the ability to apply rational judgement. Knowledge is the ability to have a conscious awareness, and knowledge gained and not passed along is wasted knowledge.
UNDERSTANDING: Shows that we are able to communicate effectively, bringing about agreements, and a positive state of mind.
