Chris Brown Blows Off

Incident w/ Gang Member

'It's L.A. Man'

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown says he wasn't fazed by the self-proclaimed gang member who screamed at him outside a Hollywood nightclub this week ... telling TMZ that's just how things go in L.A.. 

We broke the story ... Brown was confronted by an N-bomb dropping loudmouth who claimed he was a member of the Crips -- as he was leaving Playhouse late Wednesday night. It's unclear why he was screaming at Brown, but he seemed to be making a veiled threat when he asked CB if his car was bulletproof.

Chris eventually drove away from the scene, but not before dropping a few F-bombs and N-bombs of his own.

But when we saw Brown leaving an L.A. art studio Friday afternoon ... we asked him what he was thinking during the incident, to which he replied, "It's L.A. brother."

He continued, "You just gotta keep your head down and keep walking."

Strong words from Brown, who doesn't exactly have a reputation for walking away from a conflict ... but maybe, just maybe, he's finally learning.

Chris Brown set up that whole incident to make himself look like a victim for his upcoming court date for probation violation.

Maybe, just, maybe, he knows he's dealing with somebody he can't beat up and he's scared to death. Maybe next time, it'll be more then words exchanged and Chris will know what it feels like to get kicked around.

Oh, please, do honestly think Chris Brown is learning anything other than how to keep going to clubs, partying, and ending up in trouble? What is it with this guy? He is just a major problem, and HAS major problems! I only hope Rhianna gets out of his way before she becomes his target, yet again!!

i believe the "Crip" gang member was a poser. i do believe Chris will meet his match some day. he's playing Mr. Untouchable a bit too hard.

LMAO Chris drove away because he only fights women and gay men (even on twitter). If it's a man, he knows he will get his pu$$y ass beat and he won't do anything. hahaha
