Chris Brown has led many to believe that he is associated with the Bloods, but according to the group, the singer is no gangbanger … At least not officially.
Recently, Brown has been “repping” for the Fruit Town Piru set. In fact, earlier this month, the 25-year-old was spotted in the club throwing up hand signs that are reportedly affiliated with the group. The singer did the same during his performance at the 2014 BET Awards.
But members of the set tell TMZ, although Chris has not officially been initiated, they don’t mind him claiming Fruit Town because “he’s paid his dues in the hood.”
Per the news outlet, the gang doesn’t mind Chris claiming Bloods because “1. He’s hired several of them to work for him 2. Chris comes to the hood and hangs out with them 3. He shot a music video in the neighborhood 4. He donated a thousand pairs of new shoes to Compton kids.”
And of course, we can’t forget about the promotion. Last year, Chris painted a mural in Hawaii of goblin toothed monster cars … Underneath the mural, the singer painted the words Fruits Piru. In August 2013, Chris also mentioned Fruit Town in a tweet directed towards Jay Z, who put the kibosh on Beyonce working with Breezy.
“Beyonce. U might as well go ahead and do this collar. JAY might have a problem wit it, but this Piru!”
