Chris Brown, for better and for worst, is one of the most prominent artists and performers of my generation. He made his debut at the ripe age of 16, and he has consistently been making tracks ever since.
However, what many people think of him as is not a singer, or a rapper, but a person who beat Rihanna. As many people know, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to felony charges against then-girlfriend, Rihanna. Since then, Chris Brown's musical career has taken a nosedive, and his Graffiti album, which came out in the same year as the incident sold poorly and had generally negative reviews. He has since apologized profusely and been understanding about his charges.
Since then, he has bounced back with a collaborative mixtape with Tyga entitled Fan of a Fan and his fourth studio album, F.A.M.E.
Chris Brown has also taken up rap fairly recently, and in my opinion, he's extremely adequate at it, having a nice flow and some nice beats. Although, it is slightly awkward to hear him talk about braggadoccio and getting girls even three years after the incident.
Do you feel like Chris Brown deserves a second chance and has atoned for his sins? Do you think Chris Brown is a good RAPPER?
