History of South Central, LA

Freeway Ricky Ross lived on 74th and Hoover when he started dealing drugs. Although not violent himself, he used the Hoovas as a way to start the distribution of Crack Cocaine. The Hoovas proved not to be organized enough to keep up with distribution, but did act as protection for Ricky Ross.
