One of the most notorious gangs in Long Beach is the Insane Crips, you either are insane if you want to step to these guys, because they are INSANE.

The Insane Crips are from the East Side of Long Beach, and the policy for these guys when they were founded is that they were insane because they had to live up to the name. They did whatever it took to establish themselves as the top dog in Long Beach.

One famous East Side Rollin 20s Crip has said that he wanted to be an Insane Crip as all his cousins and homies repped Insane, but he jokingly said the Insane’s are too hard, so he took the other route.

Like most Crip Gangs in Los Angeles which fall under Either The Neighborhood Alliance or the Gangster Alliance, the Insanes claim allegiance to the Eight Trey Gangsters.

Colors and Signs

The Insane Crips are one of the only Crip Gangs that rock a lot of red as their hood colors. The reason for this is due to their sub set colors.

The reason why they wear a lot of red is they wear the Cleveland Indians logo as they think it looks like a baby, which is red. The original Insane’s wore Black and Gray as their primary colors because of the Oakland Raiders logo.

Long Beach is a crazy city, its home to so many other street gangs, and because the Insane Crips are such a large gang, of course they are going to have some beefs.
