The East Side Homeboys started in 1994 by Josie virgin (Virgin Boy) in Aurora, IL.  Other original East Side Homeboys were Carlos, the Jacques brothers, Tuty, Lorenzo, Cheuy, Alex, and Milton and many more.  The East Side Homeboys were former members of the Bassheads street gang that used to bang on Chicago's southside.  The Bassheads were an all white gang that formed sometime in the 70s or 80s (if you have any information about the Bassheads hit me and CG up at chicagogangs@aol.com).  The Bassheads were not people but hung out with the people gangs, mostly the Latin Kings.  In the early 1990s the Bassheads arrived in Aurora and opened up shop.  Because they hung out with the Kings they became a target of the Folk gangs.  One incident where a Insane Deuce killed a Basshead made the news.  As the Bassheads came to a fold they flipped into two gangs, some became Latin Kings while other flipped to East Side Homeboys.  This caused the creation of the Eastside Homeboys, which soon became a major force in Aurora.  The East Side Homeboys claimed people nation but they were not officially in the book of peoples; however, they still flagged people on the streets and warred with folks.  The East Side Homeboys made the news in 1994 when Insane Deuces gunned down family members of an East Side Homeboy.  The incident occurred on the corner of High and Pierce.  The East Side Homeboy members were being chased by Deuces and they ran into a house to escape, when they did the family members came outside to see why their sons were being chased that is when Deuces gunned down the Eastside Homeboy in front of his family.  By 1995 the East Side Homeboys were being pressured by Folks and Peoples to become People, but the People nation would not accept them as they were.  The Eastside Homeboys did not want to just flip to someone else's nation, and they were propositioned to become Latin Kings.  Instead of flipping to LKs Josie Virgin worked out a deal that would make the Eastside Homeboys still be a separate nation but honor the Latin Kings heavily, thus, making them People nation worthy.  The East Side Homeboys then became the Latin Homeboys, the Latin prefix was used to honor LKs.  They Latin Homeboys were then officially honored into the people nation.  (The East Side Homeboys have never had any relation to the Westside Homeboys)
