Chief Keef Questions History Of The Black Gangster Disciple Nation

Rap star Chief Keef is a self-professed member of the 300-block Black Disciples street gang.

The 18-year-old Interscope artist hails from Parkway Gardens Apartment, commonly referred to as O’ Block.

Chief Keef, who often goes under moniker “Sosa,” has been claiming the street gang since he was an adolescent, even rapping in Fredo Santana’s “My Lil Niggaz” song, “O Block and 300, we comin’/Them the hoods, and I been there since a youngin.”

Despite Sosa’s affiliation to the BDs, the “Ight Doe” rapper questioned the history of the Gangster Disciples and the Black Disciples.

“Niggas Was GD Before So u really gotta Think About it smh!”

The Black Gangster Disciple Nation was founded by Larry Hoover and David Barksdale in 1969.

Hoover and friends formed “The Supreme Gangsters” in the early 1960s and used to hang out on 68th and Green streets. Hoover and his crew controlled a small strip of Halstead Street in the Englewood neighborhood.

The gang grew and spread East to 79th street and East to the Dan Ryan expressway.

Hoover possessed a charismatic personality and was seen as the crew’s leader.

“I always wanted to be a gang leader. Not just part of the gang, I always wanted to be the leader,” Hoover was quoted as saying.

David Barksdale was the leader of the rival Black Disciples gang and controlled the area between 59th and 68th streets. Barksdale suggested he and Hoover merge their gangs to form Gangster Disciples.

Hoover and the Supreme Gangsters met with Barksdale and the BDs on the corner of 68th and Green Street to make their pact official.

“I told them that today that we had become the strongest, most powerful organization in the city… What we have put together here today was the start of something great. That from this beginning, we would one day control the city,” Hoover was quoted as saying.

Barksdale went under the name “King David” and adopted Judaism’s six-point star for the gang.

Barksdale died from kidney failure in 1974 as a result of a shooting in 1967, thus making Hoover the president of the organization.

The Black Disciples later disbanded from the Gangster Disciples following a disagreement with the direction of the organization.

Hoover ran the gang’s criminal empire until he was charged and convicted in the murder of drug dealer William Young. He was sentenced to 150 to 200 years in prison.

While in prison, Hoover changed the name of his street gang to “Growth and Development.”

Despite professing change for the urban community, Hoover was linked to running an elaborate criminal empire behind bars. He was later indicted and sentenced to serve six life sentences at the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility.

The GDs and BDs can now be found active nationwide in many major metropolitan cities.

Both gangs remain under the six-point star umbrella to this day, essentially making members of the GDs and BDs a part of the same gang.

    Is this sh*t even real? There are more important things to life than this BULL SH*T. This right here is why people are racist against black people. I hope all these gangbangers die or go to jail so we can evolve. Especially the rappers who claim to be in a gang… influencing young retards with their dumbass lyrics.
    Seriously? Grow the f*** up lunatics. This sh*t is a distraction and you’re falling for it.

  42. downsince day 1 says:

    ALL is ONE

  43. tray lll says:

    I’m laughing because both of you are right. There are Bds that are still under the 6 and there are some that are under the 5 which is the blue fin bds. Yes King David had the Bds and yes Hoover had his own gang. But at one point hoover was supposed to be a stone and be in the main 21. But hoover wanted more power and left with the brick of the main 21 to join forces with king David to be BGDN. Both were Kings. We. King David died yes Hoover took over and yes there was resentment from bds. A lot of bds flip to gd. Freeman took over and it was still under the 6. He went to prison and Marvell Thompson took over which he was under the blue fin and a lot of bds went blue fin and some stayed under the 6. So you all are right by pieces. If you ask the old heads they will tell you the same.

  44. GD6374 says:

  49. 2-4 Gabg says:

    BD Under The Six But Blue Fin BDS Under The 5 = Fin

  50. KeyStone says:

    All I have to say is this: If you know real history then you should know that David and Hoover are either an El or Bey Moorish Brother affliated with the Fort that Jeff established! So in essence GD’s & BD’s should be just like the Stones and El-Rukins!
    Calling eachother Moe!!!!!! Contrary to popular belief Larry B. Hoover Bey is a Moor!!!!!!!! And so are you all if you’d just wake what I call the f*** up!!!!! Peace and Love!!!! Always remember your 1st principle is “love” no matter what star you under!!!!!!

  51. Mafia INSANE says:
