In the first half of last night’s game, while taking a break from running around and past the Redskins, DeSean Jackson got into a scuffle with DeAngelo Hall. It might have been about capitlizing additional letters in a first name; it may have been because Hall shoved Jackson late out of bounds. Who knows? What we do know, though, is that Jackson flashed a Crips sign at Hall. We’ll let the folks From Larry Brown Sports take it from here:
Jackson is from Los Angeles and has been repping Crips as long as he’s been in the league. His record label is called Jaccpot, and it’s not misspelled because he’s a dummy; the Cs are for Crips. Jackson also went to Long Beach Poly for high school, which is the same school where Snoop Dogg, another Crips member, attended. In fact, Jackson recently released a song called “Diamonds on my neck” featuring Snoop Dogg. DeSean was seen throwing up the Cs in that music video.
It will be interesting to see if the NFL has anything to say about this, or if this is something that the league monitors going forward. What we can say, though, is that this is probably not the smartest thing for Jackson to keep doing.
