It's now majority Hispanic, not black. Still a lot of gang problems, but a lot of gangbangers from the 90s are in prison right now.

It does have more Hispanic's moving in, but Black gangs are still the majority there.

They are now known as Cubito de Hielo, fácil E, and Médico Dre.

Moderator cut: the above are simply NWA members' names in Spanish. In order, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, and Dr. Dre.

Compton is a barrio nowadays. Gang violence still exists, but it's not as bad as it was during the 1980-2005 period.
