(AllHipHop News) Last week Chris Brown was caught apparently throwing up gang signs at a club in Los Angeles. Reports later connected Brown's hand motions to Compton's Fruit Town Piru Bloods set.
TMZ reportedly spoke with Piru members to get more information about the R&B singer's association with the gang. While the site reports Brown has not been officially initiated, he has been accepted as an affiliate.
The connection between the Bloods and Brown is not because the "Loyal" performer supports or takes part any in criminal or gang related activity. It is his charitable work and community support that the set appreciates.
According to TMZ, Brown gets the Fruit Town co-sign because:
- He's hired several of them to work for him ... giving their Compton community an economic boost
- Chris comes to the hood and hangs out with them
- He shot a music video in the neighborhood ... and even included some of them in the vid
- He donated a thousand pairs of new shoes to Compton kids
