Fruit was a crew chief in the Stanfield Organization.


Season 3

Fruit is the head of one of Marlo Stanfield's drug dealing crews, and works with Jamal and Justin. He is identifiable by his ever-present Kangol hat. He is first seen negotiating with Dennis "Cutty" Wise over how to distribute a package of dope; he seems to be fair, but he later rips Cutty off, saying the package was taken by the police. Cutty protests, Fruit pulls a gun on him and forces Cutty to withdraw. Later in the season, his crew's territory is encroached upon by Bodie Broadus and his crew, which sparks the turf war with the Barksdale organization. Cutty, now working for the Barksdale organization, takes part in a strike against Fruit's corner. Fruit escapes because Cutty is unable to bring himself to shoot Fruit.

Season 4

Fruit is seen leaving a nightclub with a woman, Patrice. He is then shot to death by a young dealer from Bodie's crew named Lex, the jealous father of Patrice's baby. ("Boys of Summer")
