Early life

The incarcerated drug baron was born on the 30th of November, 1950, in Jackson, Mississippi, USA. Larry Hoover's age is 70 years. He had four siblings. Besides, his parents relocated the family to Chicago when The King was around four years old.

Unfortunately, the new environment influenced Larry, and by the age of 12, he was already part of a gang known as the Supreme Gangsters. The group started with petty crimes such as stealing and mugging but later evolved into big-time criminals.

A career in crime

Larry Hoover's Supreme Gangster experience increased, and he led the group after the demise of the previous leader, Alex Rain. But, was Larry Hoover a black P stone? Yes. He formed a gang alliance with the Black P Stones gang in 1969, but it was a short-lived merger.

By June 1969, the drug lord executed a successful merger with another gang known as Black Disciple Nation under the leadership of David Barksdale. While David was the king of the gang, Larry became the Chairman and second in command.

The Chairman orchestrated several illegal activities ranging from robbery and murder to assault and drug distributions. However, he seemed content with the life of crime and the repercussions as he was in and out of jail several times.

So, Why did Larry Hoover get so much time? The Honourable Chairman got into big trouble after he ordered the execution of William 'Pooky' Young on the 26th of February, 1973. He and the executioner, Andrew Howard, were arrested and charged to court. They got 150 to 200 years of jail time.

The Chairman was to serve his prison term at Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill, Illinois, but he continued controlling gang activities outside the prison wall.

Larry Hoover was a massive influence in the prison system and was respected by inmates and wardens alike. However, he renounced his gang activities and involvement after a while, claiming that Gangster Disciples had been reformed and renamed Growth and development.

Who are the 3 kings of GD? The criminal association has been under the leadership of three kings at different times: King David Barksdale (deceased), King Larry Hoover, and King Jerome 'Shorty' Freeman. Is Big Meech Larry Hoover? No, they are not the same person, although both are popular for choosing a criminal career.

The federal prosecutors argued that the Gangster Disciples' reformation was a ploy by the honourable to gain cheap clemency. The government stood on the ground that Larry Hoover had not turned a new leaf and continued to orchestrate illegal activities across the United States. However, by 1997, the prosecutors proved The King's continuous crimes. Larry Hoover's charges bordered along leading an unlawful drug business that was worth millions of US dollars.
