Flip (Gang Slang Meaning)

Flip (Flipping) is a slang used widely by gang members, especially those in Chicago, to describe to the act of switching gangs. For instance, if someone used to be a Black Disciples gang member, but it is now a Gangster Disciples member, someone might say they flipped to GD. Individuals can flip to different gangs, gang sets can flip gang, and gangs can flip nation.

Flipping can either be done by choice or by force. For instance, if a gang goes to war with another gang and lose, instead of giving up their territory they might flip to the other gang. An individual flipping gang is looked down upon by many due to the fact that they're letting their old friends go to link up with new individuals. Individuals whom flip without a good reason will often be questioned about their loyalty.
