Chris Brown on Track to Be Next Big Thing in Rap?

Chris Brown on Track to Be Next Big Thing in Rap?

After winning fans over with his Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne-assisted No. 1 hit, “Look At Me Now,” earlier this year, Chris Brown now wants make the full transition from singer to rapper, announcing that he plans to release a full-out rap mixtape.

Brown made the announcement July 20, via his Twitter page, dubbing the apparently good-boy-gone-bad themed mixtape, Boy In Detention.

“New(chris brown) hip hop mixtape called “Boy In Detention” coming soon!” tweeted Brown, adding “And people… Yes I’m a singer so if this mixtape doesn’t reach your quota for hip hop! Simply don’t listen..”

Brown’s move to hip-hop has seemingly been in the works for months now, with the F.A.M.E. singer appearing on hip-hop tracks like Big Sean’s “My Last” as well as rapping on a series of songs called “Real Hip-Hop S—t,” produced by legendary hip-hop producer 9th Wonder.

Adding to his new bad boy rapper image, an already tatted up Brown also revealed via Twitter that he’s now sporting a fresh set of gold grills.

“Stomachache from eating gold!!!!” tweeted Brown with a link showing off his grills, followed by another photo link with the hashtag “#boyzindetention.”

Despite his past history of violence, it may not be easy to fathom the boyish, hipster-like singer as a true bad boy, but, if anything, Brown is sure to finally capture the essence of former rough-and-tumble hip-hop sex symbol, LL Cool J. –nicholas robinson
