The West Side (W/S) 52 (or "5-Deuce") Hoover Gangster Crips are an active and long standing African-American street gang founded in the western region of South Los Angeles, California. They originated around 52nd Street and Hoover Street, between Vermont Avenue and Figueroa Avenue during the 1970s. Also known as "The Young Hoggs", the 52 Hoovers are a sub-set of the larger Hoover Criminals umbrella gang. Throughout the 1980s, this gang, along with the 74 Hoover Criminals Gang, were key players in the drug trade business, operating drug houses across South Central, Los Angeles which Authorities estimated were earning them as much as $500,000 to $1 million dollars annually at the time.

The 52 Hoovers are also rivals of the Fruit Town Brims, Van Ness Gangster Brims, Harvard Park Brims, Black P Stones, & Rollin 20s Neighborhood Bloods. By the late 1980s, the Five-Deuce Hoover Crips had over 1,000 active members on the streets of South Los Angeles.
