The Black Soul earlier history is a tough one to figure out and is a culmination of different groups that came together.  The story begins in the year 1962 when some 12-year-old boys from West Garfield Park got together to form a roller-skating dance group that skated at 2550 West Madison Street (Madison and Rockwell) which has always been a skating rink that has changed hands over the years.  The group of boys headed by Horace Willis, who was 12 at the time put together this skating group.  Horace Willis was into music and was said to be a musician that was big into the down beat.  These youths were not drug dealers and may not have even been gangbangers, if they were they for certain were not claiming to be a “Black Souls” gang, that name did not exist on the streets and there is no evidence or even stories to back that up either.

Horace Willis and his friends began to have conflicts with the Vice Lords in West Garfield Park and this caused them to assemble their own gang in 1968 under the “Black Souls” name at Adams and Pulaski.  The Black Souls formed in the same year as the Four Corner Hustlers who were a block away.  Horace Willis was family related to Four Corner Hustler founder Walter Wheat and both groups were fighting with Unknown Vice Lords and Traveling Vice Lords in that area.  Both groups had similar beliefs and became instant allies.  I did speak to a gentleman that was a Latin King from Little Village between the years 1967-1971. He told me as a King they often traveled the city into various neighborhoods to attend parties, handle business and what not.  The former Latin King I spoke to said, him and his group ended up around Adams and Pulaski in the West Garfield Park neighborhood in the late 60s.  He was more than likely hanging out in the Delano Elementary School playground that is the founding spot of the Four Corner Hustlers. The former Latin King I spoke to said nothing but good things about the Souls as he said they were “cool” and “good guys.”  This is what I understand as the mannerisms of the original Souls.  This Latin King I spoke to told me there were roughly 80 Black Souls around Adams and Pulaski, this shows just how big the Souls were in this area.  It seems like the original Black Souls were not very violent but were tough.

Another part of the history was the creation of the Soul Brothers that started in North Lawndale at 16th and Kostner in the same 1968 year by Frank Davis who was the cousin of Horace Willis.  The Soul Brothers were known to be active in the North Lawndale community in the K-Town section by the later part of the 1960s.  Another group to begin mention is the Impressionists that began at about the same time as Black Souls and Soul Brothers.  The Impressionists also came from the K-Town part of North Lawndale and were rivals of the Soul Brothers in these earlier years.  From what I gather the Soul Brothers and Impressionists were more violent than the Black Souls.  The Soul Brothers and Impressionists made the newspaper in 1968 and 1969 and the Black Souls were not in the media at that time. In one September 10, 1969, article the Impressionists killed a member of the Soul Brothers shooting him in the head.

It was rumored that Horace Willis was a Vice Lord before forming the Black Souls, but I am not positive about that and it could have been possible he was a Vice Lord up to 1968 then formed the Black Souls.  It would make sense because Walt Wheat and the Four Corner Hustlers were also Unknown Vice Lords prior to forming the Fourt Corner Hustlers.  It can make sense the Souls didn’t start until 68 because before then there are no stories, records, news articles or nothing on them before 68.  In 1968 Walt Wheat invited the Black Souls to settle the west side of Pulaski right next to Four Corner Hustler original territory which is on the east side of Pulaski.  This area of Adams and Pulaski is still Black Soul territory presently and the home of the Rollin 4000 D-Block, Insane Solid Black Souls.  Adams and Pulaski area is exactly where 4s and Souls became very tight beginning in 1968 and where they were founded.

I do not know when Black Souls made their way into the East Garfield Park neighborhood, but it happened by 1971 which was the same year a Chicago Tribune article reported that police confiscated a firearm from a woman that lived in an apartment building that was also the home of Black Soul leaders.  The gun was to be used against the Vice Lords.  This apartment was at Francisco and Madison which is just a block away from the legendary Madison and California intersection.  I have seen on the internet for years that the Black Souls were founded at Madison and California, and I have been guilty of using that info as the birthplace of the Souls on previous versions of this history.  Recently, I have really dig into it and found no evidence or any stories to support this claim.  No doubt, Madison and California goes way back in time and was a big time Soul stronghold as evidenced in this 1971 article; however, there is no evidence this is where they started.  I theorize the Souls got here in 1969 as part of their very early conquests of the west side after Pee Wee was killed.  The Souls retained their original territory around Adams and Pulaski and expanded it into a large piece of turf that still exists today.

As I stated I do not know how violent or aggressive the Souls were in the 60s but the group became much more aggressive and violent beginning in 1969 when the founder Horace “King Pee Wee” Willis was killed during a robbery attempt of a car wash.  Willis was attempting a robbery one day in 1969 when Chicago police arrived at the scene.  I am not sure if Willis was armed or if this was even armed robbery but one thing for sure he tried to run from the police and was not a threat to anyone besides running from the police.  The police shot him in the back as he ran which is common for police to shoot a fleeing suspect; however, a grave injustice happened when the police did not stop shooting him even after he was deceased and to shoot him in the back.  Willis received at least 30 bullets in his back which shows nothing short of pure hatred when you shoot a dead man that many times.  This story never made the papers, and the officers were never punished, however, legal action was taken against the Chicago police and the parties, that want to remain anonymous, obtained only a minor victory through an attempted law suit.  I have searched for this case and even had a lawyer assist me in finding it, but it was not found, the lawyer advised it is likely because there was a settlement reached outside of court which makes perfect sense.  If the legal action was pursued further in 1969 Chicago, you can bet there would have been retaliation against those close to Willis by city or police officials.  Willis did not harm anyone during the robbery which makes it a further injustice that he was not only killed but brutally killed.

The Black Souls were enraged after the death of Willis and then rebranded themselves as the “Mad Black Souls” but that name may not have to do with anger, it may have something to do with an alliance with the Four Corner Hustlers.  The Mad Black Souls made the newspaper for the first time in 1970 and were known as the “Mad Black Souls.”  In a 1972 article the Souls were labeled as one of Chicago’s more violent street gangs alongside Latin Kings, Black P Stones, Vice Lords, and Supreme Gangsters (Gangster Disciples). After the death of Willis, the Mad Black Souls began selling drugs and began having conflicts with the Four Corner Hustlers now that Pee Wee was deceased.

The original 4s and first-generation Black Souls bonded over hatred of TVLs, Jive 5s, Supreme Gangsters and Black P Stones trying to settle North Lawndale. The Supreme Gangsters (now known as Gangster Disciples) were also aggressively settling the west side streets in 1968 as they were trying to take the southern part of West Garfield Park south of Jackson Boulevard mainly south of the West Garfield Park Black Souls.  Black Souls also wanted the corner of Monticello and Ohio in the West Humboldt Park community, but the Supreme Gangsters were settling Huron and Homan area and wanted to spread west, this resulted in a violent gang war in the late 60s and early 70s that made the newspaper in 1971 when the Black Soul gang leaders living at Monticello and Ohio killed a teenager thought to be a Supreme Gangster and he likely was.  As the young man lay dying on the street in a pool of blood, he scribbled the names of his shooters in a notebook for the police to find and two Mad Black Souls were convicted.  These were the earliest branch outs of the Black Souls as they spread to West Humboldt Park.  This section for the Souls only lasted until 1973 or 1974 because the police aggressively pursued Supreme Gangsters and Black Souls because of the news articles and effectively removed both gangs.

After the death of Pee Wee William Earl Weaver took over the Black Souls from 1969 to 1972.  This was an era where the Mad Black Souls were first getting introduced in the media and were known for drastic violence.  I don’t know what happened to Weaver but in 1972 Frank Davis took over after Weaver.  Frank Davis was the founder of the Soul Brothers and now merged the Black Souls and Soul Brothers to become “Black Soul Brothers” in 1972.  The violence during this era the Souls were involved in may have led to the death of Frank Davis who was killed in the early to mid-70s after he was kidnapped and held for ransom.  The kidnappers made demands to his brother Ronald Davis.  When Ronald tried to give them the cash, they still took the money and took off with Frank anyway.  Frank’s body was later discovered at in an abandoned building.  Ronald Davis then took over the Black Souls for some time up to 1975.

In the year 1975 now that Ronald Davis was no longer in charge the Black Souls went through a major change and re-organization that would bring the Black Souls much higher profits than ever.  This new re-organization is when the Gangster Black Souls were created.  In the year 1975 a money-making Supreme Gangster Wayne “Jack Bobo” Edwards decided to flip to a Black Soul while still maintaining strong ties to the Supreme Gangsters for money purposes.  This would be an arrangement that was mutually beneficial for the Supreme Gangsters and for the Black Souls and now Edwards was able to establish the Gangster Black Souls in 1975.

The Gangster Black Souls would be in the Austin neighborhood around Lake and Cicero Ave. This is how Black Souls first settled the streets of Austin.  The GBS was also established in East Garfield Park establishing a strong relationship with Supreme Gangsters (Black Gangster Disciples), as the GBS established themselves in the original Black Soul territory around Madison and California that was an area shared with Mad Black Souls.  GBS would also set up around Lake and Homan.  GBS would also set up in K-Town around 16th and Kostner once again sharing with Black Gangster Disciples (Supreme Gangsters).

The Mad Black Soul name continued, but this time as a faction, as these Souls were well established in both East and West Garfield Park, and they settled in southern Austin by the Four Corner Hustlers.  These Black Souls would eventually obtain a strong relationship with Four Corner Hustlers.

There was also the Black Outlaw Soul Brothers group, but I am not sure about that arrangement but for sure it has roots with the Soul Brothers.  This group would eventually become big in East Garfield Park and have territory in Austin.  This group was present in the North Lawndale community in the original K Town area where Soul Brothers were big in the late 60s at 14th and Avers area.  I think the K-Town part of this group would later flip to GBS as this group was always tight with Supreme Gangsters (Black Gangster Disciples).

The other group established had deep roots and this was the Black Egyptian Cobra Souls from the K-Town area of North Lawndale.  This group came from the notorious Egyptian Cobras that was once the biggest gang on the west side of Chicago.  The Cobras were founded in 1954 in the Maxwell Street Market area of the Near West Side then soon migrated to K-Town by the later 1950s. By the early 60s only two groups stood tall in North Lawndale which were the Vice Lords and Egyptian Cobras.  The Cobras were strong with a deep history but by the early 70s they were becoming something of the past and were part of old ways dying out, but some Cobras wanted to keep it going but could no longer maintain on their own and were facing complete extinction by 1975.  These Cobras were about making money, and this drove them to become part of the Black Souls.  Willie Jones was the Egyptian Cobra that made this arrangement and was now part of the Black Soul council running the Cobra Souls faction beginning in 1975.

The Impressionist gang was still lingering in the North Lawndale K-Town area and just like the Cobras the Impressionists became part of the Black Souls; however, I am not sure which group they attached themselves to, but it could have been either with the GBS or Soul Brothers.

Being part of the original west side Supreme Gangsters Wayne “Jack Bobo” Edwards had strong ties to Larry Hoover and the Gangsters and was able to get a network of cash flowing especially since Supreme Gangsters were big money makers since their inception on the south side in 1964.  The two forces combined would turn large profits in East Garfield Park and in K-Town until Jack Bobo became a certified millionaire.

In April of 1978 the Folk and People early coalitions were formed in prison.  Black Souls allied to the future Folks in the prison system when these alliances were created.  Mad Black Souls also drew up an alliance with the Four Corner Hustlers of Madison and Homan in the East Garfield Park area this same year, this developed the 440+ concept in 1978.  The Gangster Black Souls were heavily unified with Black Gangster Disciples which is why the Souls joined in prison.  The original Black Souls had a strong relationship with Disciple founder David Barksdale who created the Disciple alliance in 1966 and it was said the original Black Souls or Soul Brothers became linked to this perhaps more indirectly because the Souls never adopted the last name of “Disciple.”  In that same year of 1978 the Four Corner Hustlers became a part of the Vice Lord nation and joined allies that would became “People” allies in later years.  This was the only way the 4s would be accepted into the People alliance.  With the 440+ concepts the Mad Black Souls could link the nation to making profits alongside Four Corner Hustlers and a link to the Vice Lord nation.  Linking to Four Corner Hustlers and Black Gangster Disciples made for an easy transition to linking heavily into the west side heroin trade in Austin, East Garfield Park, West Garfield Park and North Lawndale.

In the year 1981 just as Folk and People spread to the streets of Chicago a new group of Black Souls formed called the Impressionist Black Souls.  The Impressionists were allied with the Four Corner Hustlers just like MBS and were also at war with BGDs and Folks.  IBS began at Wilcox and Pulaski in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, a long-held territory that used to be exclusively owned by MBS, but some MBS became IBS in 1981.  Sometimes wars have happened between IBS and MBS but mostly both groups have held that corner for decades.  I am not sure how the Impressionist name was resurrected but the Impressionist movement has links to the old Impressionist gang from K-Town.  Perhaps some of the founders of the IBS group were former Impressionists.

In that same year of 1981 Folk and People had now spread to the streets and most gangs that were attached to either side now represented it in the streets; however, the Black Souls as an entire organization chose not to identify with either side despite being affiliated with Folk in prison.  Some groups of Souls were claiming Folks in the 1980s like the Outlaw Soul Brothers were claiming Folks and many times Gangster Black Souls claimed Folk.  Mad Black Soul groups and Solid Black Souls many times would claim People alliance.  It all depends on where the Soul group is located and who they do business with at the time.  Some Soul groups despise Gangster Disciples while other groups embrace them, some Soul groups despise Four Corner Hustlers and Vice Lords while other groups embrace them.  For the most part, most Soul groups are in a rivalry with Vice Lords especially Traveling Vice Lords.

On December 9, 1983, the Black Souls murdered a Vice Lord chief by the name of Jerome Wells.  According to court documents Black Soul members were infuriated over the death of Black Soul member Tom Slick and now they wanted revenge.  According to court documents about 8 or 9 members of the Black Souls met at gang member Eddie Wood’s apartment that was located somewhere on Van Buren Street.  Woods had a whole lot of guns in his apartment and was able to pass them out; he was also able to test one of the shotguns out in the hallway, which shows that obviously residents were not bothered by gunshots in the building.  The Black Souls marked Vice Lord Chief Jerome Wells for death, and Wells lived right across a vacant lot in an apartment building next door, this is also the building where Black Soul member Larry Gross’ mother lived.  The plan was for four teams of two gang members each to go across the open lot and into the nearby building and into Larry Gross’ mom’s apartment and drink beer until the lookout told them Wells was coming.  Later on, they made it to the building and Wells came home to his 7th floor apartment, he was then ambushed by Black Souls and shot several times.  Larry Gross, Eddie Woods, John Mahogany, and Willie Atkins were all charged with murder (People vs. Atkins).  This murder showed that the Black Souls would retaliate heavily if a rival gang would kill one of their own.

Another case to note involved the Black Outlaw Soul Brothers of K-Town. This was a section that is viciously fought against the Vice Lords. The Outlaw Soul Brothers guarded their territory tightly and expected rival Vice Lords to comply by staying out of the area.  On the night of January 22, 1984, Vice Lord gang members Keith “Chip” Jordan had become a victim of a brutal gang beating from the Outlaw Soul Brothers.  According to court documents Keith Jordan was walking alone through Soul Brother territory at 16th and Harding when Soul Brother gang members Kenneth “Keno” Anderson, “Zel,” and Larry Glasco flashed gang signs at Jordan and screamed out “Folks poppin, People droppin!”  A series of hand signs were exchanged as Soul Brothers threw down the Vice Lords, then the three Soul Brothers chased Jordan who slipped and fell, Zel and Glasco proceeded to beat Jordan with a pipe and a large wooden stick, then Keno jumped in to attack Jordan.  The only reason the men stopped was because a female witness began screaming, then they wanted to go after her when she tried to help Jordan, but she managed to run away and call police.  According to court documents Jordan died later of severe head trauma and Zel and Glasco were not convicted but Kenneth “Keno” Anderson was convicted (People vs. Anderson, 1987).

Black Soul leader Sam McKay was put in prison in the year 1992 after leading the Mad Black Soul faction for some time.  In 1992 when McKay was put in prison and Wayne Edwards took over most nation functions, another new group of Souls started called the New Life Impressionist Black Souls that started at 19th and Pulaski in North Lawndale.  Willie Jones was put away for murder at some point.

I do not know when Sam McKay was running the MBS but was definitely in charge of the Mad Black Souls by 1987 at the latest.  On November 13, 1987, according to court documents in the case of People vs. Murray, Sam McKay ordered the deaths of Brian Fowler and DeJuan Buck.  Fowler and Buck were selling drugs near the intersection of Fulton and Kedzie in the East Garfield Park neighborhood.  The Black Souls were running a major drug house at address 3233 West Fulton which was right at that intersection and these young drug dealers were infringing on McKay’s turf according to court documents.  McKay got together with Kevin Murray, “Jet,” “Paris” and Tyrone Washington to plan out the murder and Jet brought in a gym bag with two Uzi machine guns.  McKay said the two must die according to court documents.  Kevin Murray then became the driver and escorted Jet and Washington to go out looking for the two dealers, eventually they spotted the two dealers then Jet and Washington got out of the car and shot the two dealers dead in a back alley by 3300 West Fulton, they then got in the car driven by Murray who served as the getaway driver and was also said to be Sam McKay’s personal driver according to court documents.  Kevin Murray also was a drug dealer in the Black Souls that moved drugs under McKay according to court documents.  Murray and Washington were charged with murder and sentenced to life in prison, for some reason Sam McKay was never brought up on charges in this case (People vs. Murray, 1993).

The Black Souls were very serious about their drug turf from the start.  This was apparent in the November 13, 1987, murder of two rival drug dealers.  Another example of the Black Souls flexing their muscles in East Garfield Park came on the night of August 4, 1990, at the intersection of Adams and Francisco.  At this intersection is a two-story apartment building that John “Screwball” Barnes was running a crack cocaine operation on the second floor of the building that was rented by his tenants Claude “Blood” Benson, “J.C.” and Floyd Spencer.  Screwball supplied the drugs and brought it the building and would give the drugs to Carol Ramsey who would then give the drugs to Charles Williams who sold the drugs in the apartment while Benson collected the money and brought the proceeds back to the Black Souls which Benson was a member of according to court documents.  Carol Ramsey lived in the building on the first floor with a Gangster Disciple gang member named Reginald Jett. Drug users were able to stay inside the building and smoke their crack, which meant this place was a “smokehouse.”  This crack house was jointly operated by members of the Black Souls and the Gangster Disciples, I am not sure if Screwball was a member of either gang.  On the night of August 4th Claude Benson argued with Carol Ramsey that Screwball owed the Black Souls money and because of this the drug operation had to cease activity or the building would be burned down, when Screwball allegedly refused according to court documents, a Gangster Disciple gang member and Jeffery Todd Wilson, a Black Soul gang member, then doused the place in gasoline then lit it on fire while they yelled for everyone to get out, then there were two explosions as the building blew up. The men were paid $200 to light the fire according to court documents.  Two men died in the blast, Floyd Spencer and Lee Burnett, Wilson was charged with murder and sentenced to life in prison (People vs. Wilson, 1998).

In the year 1991, the Four Corner Hustlers were now being ran by Angelo Roberts.  In order to not only secure Robert’s position but to also increase profits and the power of the Four Corner Hustlers the 4s passed down the black diamond concepts to the Mad Black Souls.  This was supposed to be a tester concept drawn up by now deceased Four Corner Hustler leader Monroe Banks to engrain into young 4s that they were independent of the Vice Lord nation.  The black diamond concepts then got confused as a way to break away from the People alliance; however, that not really the case.  Because of the great independence the diamond stood for it became a great concept for young MBS’ to adopt to and this would help 4s and Souls do business together.  Roberts now invited the Souls into the Rockwell Gardens projects for some years until war broke out with the 4s in those buildings in the later 90s.

The Black Souls kept a smooth operation throughout the 1970s and 1980s not gaining much publicity until 1993 as the Black Souls were thought of as a Black Gangster Disciple faction and nothing more especially since the Gangster Black Souls faction had such tight relations with GDs on the west side and south side.

By the year 1993 the Black Souls were being targeted by law enforcement for selling millions of dollars’ worth of drugs in the streets.  The Souls were a major threat because of their complex drug trade and their propensity for violence if their drug turf was to be infringed on.  During the 1990s law enforcement and the media focused on Wayne “Jack Bobo” Edwards as he was known to be connected to the Chicago Outfit and was a big-time drug dealer.  There was even a saying drug addicts would sing a song as a parity to the popular George Michaels hit song “Wake me up…before you go go…I need to buy more dope…from our boy Jack Bobo.”  Jack Bobo would eventually face incarceration for some time then eventually retire from the street life in more recent years.

The Mad Black Souls main base become Walnut and Homan in East Garfield Park as they have been as war with Gangster Disciples and Unknown Vice Lords.  MBS here is cool with Traveling Vice Lords from Chicago Ave and St. Louis.

The Souls have had legendary wars with the New Breeds and Vice Lords but in other parts of the city they are business partners.  The Souls do not need to ally with Folk or People.  The Souls operate like a chameleon, they adopt to their surroundings to get what they need and survive and this is how they have grown over the years and even opened up in the suburbs and other states, while multiplying into the thousands.  The Black Souls continue to be a major part of Austin, East Garfield Park, North Lawndale and West Garfield Park communities with several big-time members residing on these streets.
