Since everything is a parody of something real life in GTA, the Grove Street and the Balla gangs are obviously imitations of the two most notorious gangs in LA, the Bloods and the Crips. But which is which?

Grove Street and OGF are a set of the Families.

A better question would be "Are the Families Bloods or Crips?"

 

To answer your question, I remember seeing someone saying the Grove Street gang are based off Lime Piru Bloods.

Yeah apparently Grove Street Families is based on Lime Street Pirus, a set of the Bloods gang that wear green for gang colors.

 

The Ballas are allegedly based on the Grape Street Crips, whose gang colors are purple.

Neither...It's understood of what they represent though. Grove Street (green) and Ballas (purple)

Well, I am not sure, I remember seeing that statement before, I agree with it, because the gangs are similar.

 

Not sure how the families will be in V. confused.gif

I hope different sets wear the same colours but occasionally wear different colours.

 

E.g.: Rollin' 02's could wear purple and gold.

 

 

Play on rollin 20s who also wear gold and blue.

 

 

Rollin' 20's Long beach crips

Eazy E was a crip. Ryder was based on Eazy. Grove are crips.

Grove street is based off the Grape street crips. The families are based off both gangs.

They are just parodys for street gangs in general.

OFF Topic: I wonder if they will have Cartels.

That doesn't mean anything. Ryder was based off a real life gangster, Eazy E. It has nothing to do with his gang.

Wrong.... On another note.. Families in gta v are definitely bloods.. Franklin and lamar live right next to baldwin village(jungles) which in real life is blood country (BPS bloods). So families gang is 100% based on bloods

I think you are right. Grove Street Familes and the Ballas are probably just based on LA's African-American street gangs in general, to be interpreted as Rockstar's version of Crips and Bloods, with choice being left to the player to decide who is supposed to be who.

 

I badly want Mexican cartels in this game too !!

Ballas and Grove Street Families represent the idea of two major gangs such as the Bloods and Crips but Rockstar obviously chose different colors to deny taking sides.

 

For what it's worth, CJ's actor Young Maylay wears blue in a lot of pictures.

I agree with Leafy up there, gangs were just a general parody and it's up to us to imagine which one would be Bloods or Crips.

I don't think there either Bloods or Crips. I think there just a combination of the 2. For example The Ballas in San Andreas were the biggest gang in the game. In real Life the crips are the biggest Black Gang in Los Angles but the Crips are also known for there crip on crip killings. Same with The Families in San Andreas.

Both gangs have elements of each RL gang (e.g.: Ballas are the oldest gang like Crips, but the Crip infighting thing went to the Families).

I think they happen to be influence by the bloods or crips but to me they're not based of them.

Crips.

 

The style of Graffiti was crip-like, certain crips wore green (Kelly Park <- EDIT: Nevermind this but...), and Eazy was a crip himself...
