- "The f*ck ya'll standing round for, man get to work"
Fruit is identifiable by his ever-present Kangol hat, and is the chief for one of West Baltimore's most prominent street corners.
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, but 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. Fruit is pressured by Marlo to force the Barksdale Organization away, and Fruit responds by gathering his muscle and beating most of the crew into submission with baseball bats. Cutty, now working for the Barksdale organization, takes part in the subsequent retaliation strike against Fruit's corner. Slim Charles kills one of Fruit's dealers, but Fruit escapes death because Cutty is unable to bring himself to kill again.
At the end of Season 3 when Cutty tells Justin hes got to be in training by half 3, Fruit runs out the shop laughing, then sees Cutty looking scared and then Fruit responds to his drug crew "Fuck ya'll standing around for, man get to work.
In "Boys of Summer", the season four premiere, Fruit is seen leaving an afterhours nightspot 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. Fruit's death is shown as significant enough to enrage the Stanfield leadership, and spur Marlo to order an immediate retaliation hit on his killer, Lex.
