Chris Brown is raising eyebrows again, this time by giving a shout out to an L.A. street gang. Always a smart move whilst in the midst of controversy.
The crew earning props from Breezy? The Pirus, a subset of the Bloods.
The singer was in Honolulu Thursday, where he hired a guide to take him and his crew around to places on Oahu where he could legally spray paint.
Brown, as fans know, is a talented artist who often spray paints graffiti, legally. He removed it from the outside of his house after neighbors complained.
The singer took his apparent Piru loyalties to new heights on Twitter, too, calling out Jay-Z for not letting wife Beyonce collaborate with him.
He's not worried about Jay, though, because he's got tight Blood ties.
Seriously. It's weird, because last year, he denied gang affiliations:
"I'm no gangbanger!" Brown wrote. "Where im from we say cuz, blood, folk, woadie, homie, patna, its slang and ebonics! US KIDS USE THESE TERMS."
Just to clarify, Brown showing love to a gang is not illegal, nor does it violate his probation. It's just not intelligent, one could argue, for myriad reasons.
Nor, one could also argue, is calling out a "racist" D.A. and "bitchass" legal system after you were given a do-over ... but that's Chris Brown for you.
At least we know what he'd dress in for a bloods and crips party.
