DeSean Jackson

Throwin' Gang Signs

with Rapper Nipsey Hussle

3/10/2014 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0310-niphussle-instagramPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is a Crip ... and he ain't afraid to show it -- flashing gang signs with rapper (and fellow Crip) Nipsey Hussle.  

Jackson and Nipsey were hanging out after a show in Philadelphia this weekend ... when they posed for a photo -- and DeSean threw a hand signal for Rollin' 40s Crips. 

FYI -- Nipsey is a member of the Rollin' 60s Crips.

It ain't the first time Jackson has thrown the sign in public -- in fact, this past football season, he threw up the sign during a game against the Washington Redskins. 

1:44 PM PT -- Our bad ... initially, we reported DeSean was at the YG party in L.A.  In fact, the YG party was the following night in L.A. 

Nipsey was at the YG party. DeSean was not.

I agree they can forgive Riley cooper for his racial slur caught on camera, he is no way near the athlete Jackson is, yet they crucify Jackson. Suspend him make it clear that behavior not tolerated, he'll bounce back harder than ever

closer look    

TMZ posts the photos but fail to mention the hand signals are different. The first is made extending and separating the middle and ring fingers. The game time photo shows the index middle fingers. That isn't the same gesture and therefore isn't claiming the same set. It may had been incidental.

Since when did he become a strollin 40's? His neighborhood he from is strollin 20 long beach crip. But anyways ok he a crip so the **** what. If he ain't causing havoc on and off the field why does it matter??? It's quite a bit of athletes who are gang members or drug dealers but nobody points them out. but **** **** it Philly will regret letting him go. Hell he was their only help

Gang Expert    

I am confused. The hand signals. the crip gangs. None of it is matching up. I am a gang expert. 50 years. studying and learning about street gangs. DeSean Throws up all sorts of hand signals. They are really never the same. He must have 2 or 3 different ones. Also, I never heard of the rolling 40's? I thought he was from the Rolling 60's? Why does this matter? is it against the NFLPA to not be able to take a picture with gang members? Gang Members watch football and pay too. I am against gang activity that is illegal. nothing more. I am not against the peaceful formation of any group. Like the Republicans. If he took a picture with a republican, then you'll see me mad.
