Chris Brown Clarifies Plans For Possible Hip Hop Album

Chris Brown says he wants to "be taken a hundred percent serious as a rapper" before releasing a full Hip Hop album and claims the world might not be ready "for Chris Brown, the rapper."

Chris Brown is hesitant to make an entire Hip Hop album. His latest project, X, is due later this year and Brown says it will feature some raps. However, he also claimed he doesn't know "if the world is ready for Chris Brown, the rapper."

"For me, I think I would have to progress more as an emcee first," he acknowledged in an interview with Power 98. "It's just me having fun and showcasing who I am. So an album, I would really have to be taken a hundred percent serious as a rapper. I like Rap. I love it. Music is my passion. Even on my album now, there's a couple songs that I rap on. But as far as a whole album, I don't know if the world is ready for Chris Brown, the rapper." 

His love for music has also allowed him to keep his sights open to possible albums in various genres. 

“Music is for everyone,” he added. “When you put genres on music, you segregate it... I want to always be able to do any kind of music I want. When I get older I might want to do a Country album. Next year, I might want to do an all Hip Hop album or Alternative album. Just making sure that anything that goes down, showing my audience or showing people that have a creative mind that you can do anything you want, it’s just about believing and loving what you’re doing in a positive way.”

Brown was recently criticized for his rapping skills by Drake. Speaking of a potential battle, Drake explained his hesitation. "I don't want to hear that man rap. No one wants to hear me rap against him. I really do this shit." In his own interviews, Brown has acknowledged that he "can't be taken serious" in a battle and that he is "not a rapper." Below is an interview and freestyle from earlier this month, where Brown raps and takes shots at Drake.

    This comment was removed for violating our opinion of Chris Brown being a total fag. The commenter was trying to say Brown would be a good rapper. HipHopDX will not stand for gay shit like this.
    So apparently, Chris Brown is intimidated by Drake, and wants to be the new Drake. I guarantee this has to be part of the reason Brown wants to do this. This dude is a fucking clown, and just for him trying to do this gives Drake the automatic WIN. Haha! Chris Brown's a clown!

    Don't listen to those guys, Chris Etrata. I know for a fact that Symphonic Loves is a fake charity. I talked to one of the dancers who got a scholarship who was ordered then to give it back.

    This is the shit hip hop needs, there aren't many out there that can pull a hybrid album of R&B and real hip hop like cb can, brown has proved time in and time out that he is capable of almost anything he touches so i expect nothing short of perfection on this one.. fuck all you broke ass haters sitting on your PC's mad you ain't fucking rihanna #Leggo
