The Four Corner Hustlers aka 4CH were founded in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side of Chicago in the 1960s by Walter Wheat and Freddy Gauge.[1] The Four Corner Hustlers at first were a single gang that would wear the colors black and brown, but was not in an alliance until the Vice Lords and the Four Corner Hustlers then became allies which later formed the group now known as People Nation. The gang colors are black and red and black and gold, serving under Vice Lords. They associate themselves with a black diamond with "points" at each corner. The gang has a reputation to be the most violent and feared street gang in Chicago.
