Problem Says "If Drake Can Sing," Chris Brown "Should Be Able To Rap"

Problem Says

Problem comments on his relationship with Wiz Khalifa, shares advice he's received from the Taylor Gang leader.

While speaking with Vlad TV recently, Compton rapper Problem reportedly shared his belief that crooner Chris Brown, who’s lent his talents as a rapper on the occasional track, is better than most present-day rappers.

Problem cited Breezy’s “non-threatening” approach and the ability to create a melody with his words as the reason why the Virginia songster is one to look out for as an emcee. The West Coast spitter also went on to reference Drake’s singing/rapper career as one of the reasons why Brown should be able to rap when he chooses to do so.

“He’s not afraid to be non-threatening,” Problem explained. “He’s gonna put a whole lot of attitude in each word. He has R&B cadence when he’s rapping. So, it’s a melody that’s gonna be with it at all time. And he’s saying shit…If Drake can sing, he [Chris Brown] should be able to rap.”

Problem’s comments on Brown’s skills as a rapper likely stem from the addition of the singer on his “Like Whaaat (Remix).” On top of a rapping Brown, “Like Whaaat (Remix)” also features Tyga, Master P, and Wiz Khalifa.

In addition to Problem’s thoughts on Brown, the rapper’s relationship with Wiz Khalifa is also discussed during his interview with Vlad TV. According to Problem, although talks of joining Taylor Gang have never been brought to the table, he says he has received a welcoming amount of advice from the Pittsburgh lyricist.

“No, we’ve never had that discussion,” Problem revealed. “He’s more trying to—as a friend telling me the dos and don’ts so I don’t make any mistakes…’Make sure this is intact’ or ‘Get it like this’ or ‘Say this like this.’ We talk like that. How to build my brand. That type of shit.”

Problem’s interview with Vlad TV can be found below.

    Nowadays Rappers wanna be R&B singers and R&B singers wanna be Rappers, and very few are of them are good at both. Mos Def, Lauryn Hill, Phonte & Bone Thugs are the only ones off the top of the head I know that do both on the regular and actually do it well.

    People seem to forget that Chris Brown once said in an interview on Soul Train that he rapped before he starting singing.

    Drake can't sing.

      Amen
  • dentaldamboy
    Drake can sing very well and can rap terrificly. There's no doubt he's running the game right now. Right now, pop is ruling at rap charts with Jay Z but once Drake comes, he will sell more than your favorite rappers. Jay Z, eat your own words. Drake gonna sell more 1st week than the total sales of MCHG.

      Wrong again, dentalbitch. Drake sucks at singing and rapping. He ain't running shit. Hov is hip-hop personified. Drake is the pop artist here and he won't outsell Hov in 1st week sales.
  • foreal
    he can rap if he chooses too, but it doesnt mean it will sound good
  • So Icy Boi!
    as a close friend of Lil Wayne and Ronald "Slim" Williams, I can confirm Drake's not leaving YMCMB unless he will try to rape Weezy. den dere is no excuse. YMCMB and Wayne made Drake popular, and he knows it right. anyways I can tell Chris Brown is gay and he is romantically involved with Frank Ocean. Brown likes to hit da persons he loves... dats why dey fought in Los Angles but it ended up as a gay orgy with deir security gays... Weezy showed me da full video (Game sent da video on Facebook)... in da extended video Brown said "sorry Frankie I didnt want to hurt ya, know I love ya honey" den Frank responded "I forgive you big boy, even your dick is small, my feelings are deep" and dey started to kiss with security guyz till cops came. swag

      He's been known on the West coast for a while. He's on the hook to E-40's "Function". Low-key, he's one of the catalysts in the ratchet movement in LA.
