VARRIO MISSION BAY IS TECHNICALLY WITHIN THE SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY OF “PACIFIC BEACH” WHICH SURROUNDS THE FIRME LOOKING MISSION BAY PARK ON IT’S NORTHERN SHORE BORDERS.

VARRIO MB IS SAID TO HAVE BEEN KICK STARTED BY HOMEBOYS FROM LA BIG HAZARD DE RAMONA GARDENS EAST LOS BACK IN THE LATE SIXTIES.. BACK IN THEM YEARS, THE BARRIO ALREADY HAD PLENTY OF RAZA IN THE LOCAL STREETS, BUT THEM WERE DIFFERENT TIMES AND THE FULL IMPACT FROM THE VARRIO WORLD HAD YET TO TAKE ROOT. THAT’S HOW “MISSION BAY HAZARD” CAME TO BE SET UP IN THE BAY.

LA RAZA FROM MB BACK THEN HAD IT COOL WITH THE NEIGHBORS FROM VARRIO CLARAS (CLAIREMONT) JUST FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FREEWAY. THE VATOS FROM CLARAS USED TO COME DOWN AND KICK IT WITH THE LOCALS AT “THE COURTS” (ROSE CREEK BASKETBALL COURTS) LOCATED BY BOND STREET UNDERNEATH THE GRAND AVENUE PUENTE.

PRIMERO, THAT’S HOW THE VATOS FROM MB AND CLARAS GOT ALONG, AND ANY PLEITO BETWEEN THEM WAS HANDLED THE MAN’S WAY, A PUROS CHINGADAZOS. THAT OF COURSE WAS THE WAY, UNTIL CUETES AND FUSCAS GOT INTRODUCED, AND FROM THEN ON, BLOODSTAINS ON THE CONCRETE IS HOW THE RIVALRY ENDED UP TURNING INTO.



THE COURTS WERE ONE OF THE HANG OUTS FOR MB RAZA, BUT THERE WERE OTHER ONES. ANOTHER OLD SCHOOL HANG OUT WAS “LA CAHUILLA,” THE 2300 BLOCK SECTION OF GRAND AVENUE SO NAMED BECAUSE OF THE OLD DILIPATED CANTONES AND RUN DOWN NITTY-GRITTY LOOKING STREET THAT IT WAS, REMINDED THE OLD MB BARRIO RESIDENTS OF THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT IN THE NEAR-BY BORDER TOWN OF TIJUANA.

THE MB RAZA THAT KICKED IT ON THIS BLOCK WERE OLD SCHOOL AND THEY TOO BEGAN TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE CLOSE-BY MORLEY STREET VATOS FROM LINDA VISTA. THESE MB VATOS SPAWNED THE CLIQUE KNOWN TO THIS DAY AS THEE “GRAND AVENUE BOYS”. AND IT WAS THESE SAME G’AVE BOYS THAT HAD PLEITO WITH ANOTHER MB CLIQUE OF IT’S DAY KNOWN AS THE “132 DEAD ENDS" WHO WERE FROM THE AREA AROUND FIGUEROA AND BOND STREETS IN THE CENTRO OF THE MB BARRIO.



AT FIRST, THERE WERE SERIO PLEITOS BETWEEN THE G’AVE BOYS AND THE 132 DEAD ENDS, AND WHEN THE TMC (THE MAGICIANS CLUB) LOCOS CAME INTO THE MIX IN THE LATER 1970s. THEY TOO AND THE DEAD ENDS HAD PLEITO WITH THE MB LOCOS CLIQUE THAT SPAWNED OFF FROM THE MB HAZARD.

THE ORIGINAL TMC’s ARE SAID TO HAVE CAME DOWN FROM L.A. BUT SOON THEY STARTED RECRUITING BECOMING ONE OF THE BIGGEST MB CLIQUES OF THE TIMES. ALL THESE MB CLIQUES BEEFED WITH EACH OTHER, UNTIL THEIR FEUDS TURNED DEADLY, AND THAT’S WHEN THEY ALL GOT TOGETHER AND DECIDED TO SETTLE DOWN VERSUS EACH OTHER AND FORM THE OFFICIAL “VARRIO MISSION BAY”. BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY ALL BECAME PART OF VARRIO MISSION BAY 13, THEY ALL STILL KEPT REPRESENTING THEIR OWN BLOCK OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, EVEN ‘TILL THIS DAY. IT ALL STILL GOES DOWN AS TO WHAT STREET YOU LIVE ON AND THAT’S HOW THEY BANG IN THE “WEST BAY.”



BY THE MID 1980s, VARRIO MB HAD TWO BIG CLIQUES. THE “LOCOS” AND THE “GRAND AVE BOYS.” BUT IN THE 1990s TWO NEW CLIQUES SPRUNG UP, THE “BOND STREET BOYS” AND THE DELREY STREET BOYS. EACH ONE OF THEM MUCH SMALLER THAN THEIR OLDEN CONTEMPORARIES BUT KEEPING THE MB VARRIO GOING. A LATTER CLIQUE THAT CAME UP ARE THE “BAY RIDERS,” THESE HOMIES STARTED OUT AS TAG’BANGERS HITTING THE FREEWAYS AND FAR AWAY WALLS AND ALL THAT, BUT THEY TOO CAME TO REPRESENT “THE BAY.” THE BAY RIDERS HOWEVER CAME TO BE BASED ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE FREEWAY IN CLAIREMONT. BUT THIS WAS NOT OUT OF THE ORDINARY SINCE VMB CAME TO OUTGROW ITS OLD BORDERS, BECOMING THE SECOND BIGGEST VARRIO OF THE WEST SIDE IN TERMS OF NUMBERS, AND WITH THE NUMBERS, THEY TOO SPILLED OUT FROM THEIR OLD SECLUDED LITTLE NEIGHBORHOOD INTO THE NEAR-BY GREATER AREAS.

VMB DID NOT CLAIM NO “SIDE” UNTIL THE 1980’s. THAT’S WHEN “SIDE” THIS OR “SIDE” THAT CAME TO FORM PART OF THE VARRIO STRUCTURE ALL AROUND. BEFORE THEN, THERE WERE VARRIOS IN SAN DIEGO THAT CLAIMED OR BASED THEIR NAME ON A LOCALITY “SIDE” OF TOWN, BUT IT WAS NOT A BIG THING FOR MOST. THAT IS, UNTIL THE 1980s, AND MB WENT THAT WAY TOO. MB WENT ON TO CLAIM WEST SIDE JUST THE SAME AS THE OTHER VARRIOS LIKE WOP TOWN, OLD TOWN SD, LINDA VISTA AND CLARAS 13.

AS THE YEARS WENT BY, VMB ADDED MORE AND MORE ENEMIES TO THEIR LIST. WHAT STARTED OUT AS NEAR-BY BEEFS WITH CLARAS AND LINDA VISTA, EXTENDED OUT TO INCLUDE OTHERS LIKE WOP TOWN AND EVEN FAR AWAY VARRIOS FROM THE “EAST SIDE” AND “SOUTH EAST” SAN DIEGO AREAS.



VARRIO MISSION BAY IN THIS NEW MILENIO, NOW FOUR DECADES LATER, CONTINUES TO HAVE A FULL REPRESENTATION ON THE STREETS AND IN THE PINTAS.

Right on Pauly...it's about time someone shed light on VMB. A lot of people don't know that that hood goes back to the '60's! It's older than some SESD hoods. And you brought up West Claras 13! The newer generation of VClairemontLS doest bang West Side, and they refuse to belive that their OG's did. What about those Linda Vista Tecolotes? When did then come around, and when did they die off (or did they form LV13?)

its kind of a shakey situation for the boys who claim MB Locos and MB Cass s.t , I mean i heard of the run inns we had with them and it was like what ever , as a matter of fact we checked them for hitting up MB because there a new school click id say a millenium click with there oldest head around 25 years old and yeah. But we just let them be .
