United Blood Nation, simply known as U.B.N is a prison gang formed in 1993 within the New York City jail system on Rikers Island's George Mochen Detention Center.[2] G.M.D.C (Sometimes called C-73) was used to segregate problem inmates from the rest of the detention center. The gang was formed to protect themselves from members of the Ñetas and Latin Kings gangs.[2] They are one of the largest gangs in New York City.

Members of this gang are known for burning three circles in a triangular shape on their upper right arm or right hand to show affiliation to it. Some members would tattoo a bulldog's face on their right hand, the numbers 031 and letters M.O.B to identify themselves from outsiders also. Five point star tattoos are earned by putting in work, number of stars reflects rank.

In 2012, the gang was estimated to have between 7,000 and 15,000 members along the eastern corridor of the United States.[2]

Sets[edit]

The Nine Trey Gangsters gang has been described as a set (affiliate) of United Blood Nation, and (as of May 2014), "the first unified Blood gang alliance on the East Coast".[3]

Sex Money Murda gang is also a set of the United Blood Nation. Sex Money Murda was lead by OG Pistol Pete until his incarceration.
