Is there anything that Chris Brown can’t do? Already a superstar singer and dancer, Breezy is adding video director to his resume, but can fortune teller be next? RapFix was on the set of Wale’s Chris Brown-directed video “Slight Work” back in December and asked Breezy, Wale and “Slight Work” guest MC Big Sean about their picks for MTV News’ “Hottest MCs in the Game.” Without hesitation Big Sean suggested Wale for the list. After the trio tossed out names of hip-hop big dogs like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, Brown came up with a suggestion. “How ’bout Big Sean,” he asked.
How about Big Sean? On Tuesday it was revealed that the Detroit MC landed at #9 on the “Hottest MCs in the Game VII” list.
Wale of course was slotted at #10 on Monday. It was the first time that either rapper appeared on MTV News’ annual list. “Shoutout to @MTV and @mtvjams for acknowledging my hustle and thank you to all the fans who have been supporting me since day one,” the D.C. spitter tweeted after he learned of his placement on the list.
Sean was pretty excited about his inclusion too. On Tuesday he took to Twitter to express his joy. “Well dats what da f–k it is den! Like a Gee! —->@MTV,” he wrote while sending out a link to his site uknowbigsean.
“He was like the underdog that made it to the finals,” MTV News hip-hop director Rahman Dukes pointed out about Big Sean’s recent strides. “He really did his thing.”
And Chris Brown knew it all along.
Say what you will about Chris Brown. But don’t call his recent success a comeback.
The 22-year old R&B star, a controversy magnet whose early promise seemed to go up in smoke with his brutal beating of Rihanna, has maintained great support from a loyal crew of fans since that fateful episode over two years ago. And with his album, “F.A.M.E.,” debuting in the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart earlier this year, spawning three number one singles and netting him six BET Award nominations, it would seem that he’s back to at least semi-mainstream acceptance. Not that he ever doubted it would happen.
“I don’t really think it’s a comeback album. I feel like it’s an album of triumph, like an underdog type of album,” Brown tells The Source magazine in its new cover story. “It’s more of me showing and proving everybody wrong. I don’t think I ever went anywhere. It’s not like I fell off the face of the earth.”
Recently, the rapper and Rihanna seemed to be moving toward some small reconciliation; she moved to her her restraining order against him loosened so that he could appear at award shows, and perhaps even more tellingly, began following him on Twitter.
Brown is seemingly humble about his recaptured success. While he got caught in an online exchange in which he he made homophobic comments (for which he apologized) and had a meltdown behind the scenes of Good Morning America after being asked about the Rihanna controversy, Brown seems to understand that his actions have consequences, and is looking to positively influence his fans.
“What I like most about being Chris Brown is being able to influence the world with my music and smile, being able to
inspire the world, fans singing your music, seeing people dressed like you but at the same time them wanting to be
themselves, be individuals,” he tells the magazine. “I recognize my music touches people and everything I do negative or positive affects people all over the world. So that’s definitely a blessing and a curse.”
He’s very adamant about that blessing and curse part; as someone who has experienced the highs and lows of his personal life from underneath the magnifying glass that is the public eye, the lack of freedom does trouble him sometimes.
“The thing I dislike most about my life is living up to everybody’s expectations, never being able to be like, ‘F*ck it,’ and do what I want to do, not care about someone’s opinion,” Brown laments. “As artists we’re opinionated, but we definitely do care about the public’s opinion because that’s our consumer.”

Whilst on the ‘white’ carpet at this year’s Billboard Music Awards, one third of the Jonas Brothers, Joe Jonas, revealed details of his new album and also discussed his new single and how that single came to be co-penned by Chris Brown. Joe revealed that the two initially hooked up in a studio and started sharing beats and soon after, the two set down and penned ‘See No More’, which happens to be the first single off Joe’s new album and the last song to be recorded for the album. Joe revealed, “”It was kind of funny. We just hung out one day and we just kind of clicked. Collaborations just kind of come together sometimes.”
It’s only been a few years since Chris Brown first experienced the superstar lifestyle as a teenager, but he sure has his share of stories to tell. On the latest episode of “When I Was 17,” Brown recalls a few embarrassing memories from his early career.
“When I was 17, I was going around touring around the world performing, and for the kickoff for one of our tours, I was eating the food that gave me food poisoning,” Brown laughingly says on the upcoming episode, premiering Saturday at 11 a.m. ET on MTV. “So I got, like, midway through the show, and I just remember my stomach starting bubbling.”
Despite his bodily warnings, Brown remained a trouper, telling himself to “hold it” until his performance was over. Unfortunately, the singer learned a hard lesson that day: Don’t deny nature’s calling.
“So I just remember dancing and onstage in the midst of all that, I … is it like sharted?” the pop star asked with a smile. “The crowd didn’t know it, and I had like an outfit change coming up, so I said, ‘Yeah, I can hold it out one more song,’ and this is real disgusting and too descriptive, it was just … I just remember it running down my leg.”
Even though Breezy was busy on the road to promote his debut album, the singer tells MTV that he also had experienced plenty of “reckless” fun, especially one time when he flooded his hotel room during soundcheck with a BB gun. “We were shooting the guns. We had the couches flipped up. The catering was knocked over,” Brown said of his showdown with his cousins, adding, “It was like a war zone in our room.”
“I’m just like, getting hit left, right,” Chris’ spinner DJ Babey Drew added. “I see people squatting down military-style, trying to shoot me. It was crazy.”
At one point during the battle, Chris admits he got “shot in the face” and “cried under a table,” until he pulled the trigger to a shot that would soak his entire crew.
“I waited and then I got up and I acted like I was in a movie. … I tried to shoot at the fire extinguisher thing. I’m at least 15 yards away, so I’m thinking, ‘I don’t have a chance at hitting this thing,’ ” Breezy revealed. “So I shoot … the whole room is engulfed in water.”
Check out this I Heart Radio interview that Chris did not too long ago in which he explains the meaning behind F.A.M.E., how diverse his music is and how he gauges the fans reactions to his singles. Check it out above!
Chris Brown may hail from a little town called Tappahannock in VA, but when it comes to his swag, these days it’s L.A. every day for the F.A.M.E. star. Whether he’s doing the “Cat Daddy” with Los Angeles trio the Rej3ctz in their colorful clip or teaming up with Compton-born Young Money MC Tyga for the wildly successful Fan of a Fan mixtape, C.Breezy reps for the region.
As we gear up for our New West Week on Monday — MTV News’ must-follow series on the upstarts breathing new life into the Left Coast rap landscape, from Odd Future to Dom Kennedy — we spoke to Chris about why he lays his broad-brimmed snapback in La-La Land.
“I been out in L.A. for a while but I think it’s just, with me, my style is just me,” he said when we asked how he’d been influenced by the City of Angels.
With the exception of standard-bearer Snoop Dogg, energetic efforts from Game and the enduring influence of super-producer Dr. Dre, the West Coast took a backseat in the last decade after the Chronic-fueled dominance of gangsta rap subsided. But although that indelible sound gave way to a scene that’s now varied enough to count groups like Black Hippy and Pac Div, as well as Nipsey Hussle and Tyga among its corps, Brown said he was nostalgic for the Chucks-and-Dickies look of Ruthless Records-era N.W.A.
“I’m just a product of all that; all the hip-hop that I grew up seeing … I’m inspired by everything,” the “Look At Me Now” singer said. “And I think fashion kind of goes with me as a creative artist.
“The L.A. scene now is kinda poppin’,” he continued. “We brought the snapbacks back … me and Tyga,” he claimed about the trendsetting head gear. “Nobody was really wearing it, it was a handful of people: It was Omarion, it was Tyga, me and Big Sean wearing snapbacks. And we was just really wearing that as our own kind of swag ’cause we were looking at N.W.A and looking at how back in the day they used to have Kris Kross and the whole nine, and we wanted to bring that back for the kids.” He quickly added with a laugh, “We ain’t taking credit for it, but you know, everybody’s wearing ‘em now, so we did something good.”
Breezy did share the sartorial credit, citing fellow Virginia native Pharrell Williams as another major influence on his Angeleno-tinged style. The N.E.R.D. frontman put his stamp on the hip-hop-meets-skate-punk look early on, eventually launching the Billionaire Boys Club line (Chris was outfitted in the collection when he visited the MTV newsroom).
“I kind of look at Pharrell as one of the advocates of that [look]. I think a lot of kids, whether it be L.A., whether it be New York, a lot of kids modeled after him when he cut that skater/preppy look, then it was Kanye after and [so on]. Pharell was that guy that really set the tone for us as the kids and the generation now.”
R&B super star Chris Brown has had a drama-filled week surrounding Tuesday’s release of his highly anticipated album, F.A.M.E.
On Monday, I sat down with the singer after his visit to 106 & Park, and among many other things, he shared: “Being expected to deal with these situations on your own, you don’t really always know it—what to do or what to say or how to act. So that’s when you get a messed-up interview, that’s when you get me cussin out a cameraman—me doing something that’s not normally in my character because it’s a lot of pressure. But you have to take into consideration that it’s the game and it’s the business, and you can be better but also be smart about it.”
Just twelve hours later, those words seemed prophetic when Brown’s promotional tour took him to the set of ABC’s Good Morning America, where he reportedly had a violent meltdown in his dressing room and stormed out shirtless after he was asked about Rihanna during an interview.
The latest incident is a setback for the R&B star, who was not only making a strong comeback with the public, but also the courts. A judge overseeing Chris Brown’s community service said she was blown away by Chris’s work ethic, commenting, “No one has ever done a better or more consistent job than you have.”
Last week, BET aired three five minute clips to coincide with Breezy’s appearance on the channel and to celebrate the release of Chris’ latest album, F.A.M.E. The clips show Chris goofing around with friends, recording the album, shooting music videos, rehearsing for the F.A.M.E. tour and loads more. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
