The Undertaker Vice Lords started in the year 1970 by Eddie Richardson (aka HI NEEF) and some others, such as Curt Kirkland and Carmen Tate.. The Undertakers were formed and broken down into generations. Each generation had all members of about the same age that joined at about the same time. Each generation had its own King or prince who was in charge. Eddie Richardson was the King of all the Undertakers along with second in command Carmen Tate (aka REDMAN). Richardson was also a Five Star universal within the entire Vice Lord nation prior too and while he formed the Undertakers. The Undertakers soon set up major Crack Cocaine, powder Cocaine, and Heroine distribution operations within their territories on the Westside.
