The 16 Laws of the Gangster Disciples are the laws and beliefs that the organization’s founder, Larry Hoover, passed down in prison-issued memoranda. The Gangster Disciples, also known as the Black Gangster Disciples and the Black Gangster Disciple Nation, are expected to adhere to these principles.
Larry Hoover, the founder of GD, was born on November 30, 1950 in a small Mississippi village. He relocated to Chicago with his family in the late 1950s. Hoover was a member of several gangs during his youth, including the Devil’s Disciples and the Black Disciples. Hoover founded the Gangster Disciples in 1974, when he was still serving his life sentence for murder.
While incarcerated, Hoover maintained regular contact with his group. As its leader, he issued sixteen laws to the gang’s members. These guiding principles more closely resemble a vow. In it, GD members promise not to disrespect other GD members, to protect GD and give their lives if necessary to do so, to aid fellow members if necessary, and to accept only the teachings of Hoover.
