History: The Four Corner Hustlers originated on Chicago's Westside in the early 1970's. The organization was founded by King Walter Wheat and Freddy "Malik" Gauge. Shortly after the Four Corner Hustlers emerged, they became allied with the Vice Lords street gang, becoming a faction and adopting Vice Lord symbols and colors. The gang operated as a small group in the Austin neighborhood throughout the mid-to-late 1970's, often fighting area clubs and engaging in petty theft and vandalism. However, a group of Four Corner Hustlers began to operate in the Garfield Park and Austin neighborhoods. Lead by Monroe "Money" Banks, this group adopted the Black Diamond as a symbolic reference to their gang. In the late 1980's, Freddy Gauge died while incarcerated. Walter Wheat then took over the organizations operations solely. In the early 1990's, Monroe Banks proclaimed leadership over the entire organization but this was disputed by older high-ranking members of the gang. The tension and disagreements within the gang lead Walter Wheat to retire from the organizations leadership. Monroe Banks was later killed in a drug related murder in 1992. The 4CH's began to expand their bases of operation throughout the 1990's, growing substantially in number. A group of younger Four Corner Hustlers began to distance themselves from the Vice Lords and even rest away some of their territory, often times "flipping" Vice Lord members with the lure of drug spots.
