La Raza X4 is a set located in East Los Santos, within Juniper Avenue flats and 6th Street. The gang was seen to originate and formed around Franklin Avenue and Defson housing projects in East Los, Los Santos and has associations with a young and violent Norteno set known as My Crew Killz XIV; They referred the Defson projects and Franklin Avenue as "Deathzone" due to the murder rates being extremely high from both rival and MCK members. La Raza was founded by several My Crew Killz gang members and was much more disciplined than their aggressive allied counterparts, focusing more on money and the distribution of drugs. Eventually the two sets began to have different views which developed into a rivalry with each other, both Norteno sets have been seen breaking into fights in the middle of Franklin Avenue and reporting law enforcement have broken up and arrested up to 12 gang members from the several fights due to it. The murder of My Crew Killz leader Nathan "Crookz" Carillo in the streets of Franklin ended the tensions between the two sets, uniting them back together and establishing Eastside Wasteland X4. On January 9th 2019, one of the largest raids occurred in Franklin Avenue, arresting up to 24 My Crew Killz and La Raza affiliates; Noticeable members such as John "Kidd44" Jorge, Elijah "Bay" Morales, Antonio "Grim" Woods and Felix "Sicko" Lim are among the 24 who have been arrested. Other known members, Cesar "Crazy" Rojas and Rico "Rider" Lopez was shot and killed in different locations during a shootout against the SWAT team.
Juniper Avenue is a community made up of mostly African-Americans and Hispanics and has recently had a rise of Norteno culture on Juniper Avenue, starting off with a few members and now has soon grown into what is discovered to be La Raza X4 who had previously been targeted in the January raids. These group of people usually wear certain sports teams or dress a certain way with the easiest ways to spot them is if they have a red bandanna hanging out from their back left pocket and they usually wear Washington Nationals apparel for the "W" standing for "Wasteland". After La Raza started to grow, influencing the area with the Norteno culture they began to expand onto 6th Street, they are usually seen walking around Juniper Avenue and 6th Street in packs. La Raza X4 is tied to multiple crimes such as robberies, gang related shootings and drug dealings throughout East Los Santos, and has rapidly grown in numbers and it only seems to be getting worse as the time passes.
