The City Knights started in 1988 or 1989 (more than likely 1989) on the corner of 48th and Wood.  The City Knights were simply a neutron crew that chose not to become People or Folks.  The City Knights formed because of their constant problems with the Satan Disciples and the Saints.  At that time the Satan Disciples were/are folks while the Saints were neutral. Upon City Knights formation they had a slight relationship with the Party Players that only lasted for maybe a few years then a war broke out between the two that took full effect by 1992.  As a result of the war CKs killed many Party Players from 48th street, This caused Party Players to abondon their 48th street set.  In 1994 the CKs established a relationship with the 51st and Wood Satan Disciples, this caused the SD and CK war to come to an end.  In 1994 the City Knights became known as the Insane Gangster City Knights and joined the Folk nation under the umbrella of the SDs.  During the 1990s the CKs had on and off conflicts with Two Sixs, now they are at total war with Two Six.  From 1997 until 2001 the CKs were at war with Laraza.  The CKs have also had on and off disputes with the Latin Souls.  In the mid 1990s some City Knights moved to the suburb of Waukegan, IL and started up a CK branch there that has since expanded greatly.  The CKs also opened shop in Elgin, IL along with opening up shop on the corner of 58th and Albany in the year 2000.  The CKs really do not have any allies on the streets accept for the Satan Disciples, and as for their friendship with the Party Players, it has ended ever since CKs joined Folks.
