There's been rumors that Chris Brown is affiliated to the notorious L.A. gang the Bloods. This summer, TMZ released a video of Brown throwing up Blood gang signs in a nightclub. According to a source close to the gang, they are cool with Chris publicly repping the gang because he has paid his dues… literally. Chris has reportedly hired several of them to work for him, giving the Compton community an economic boost. He even shot a music video in their neighborhood, with some of the gang members starring in the video. Chris also donated a thousand pairs of new shoes to kids in Compton.
Chris' association with the gang has proven to be very dangerous. At his pre-VMA party at 1Oak nightclub in Los Angeles, three people were shot. Then a month later after his performance at Supperclub in Hollywood, a man was stabbed. All of the violence has been linked to the gang members in Chris' entourage.
Earlier this month, Chris sat with Sway Calloway to set the record straight on his gang "affiliation." Chris denied his affiliation with the Bloods, but he said he is "cordial" with the gang. Um, alright?
