Prince of pop no more. I presume beating your girlfriend half-to-death makes you a bonafied “gansta” or in this case just plain BOLD. In a way, I feel like Chris Brown is relieved that he no longer has to live up to some pretty boy/role model persona. Now he can say WHATEVER he wants and call it a mixtape. I must admit I don’t hate ALL of it…just almost every single track that makes up “In My Zone.”
I’m not impressed.
Take for instance his cover of Trey Songz’s “Invented sex”—-“Invented Head”….yeaaaaaah. Vulgar to say the least- well as vulgar as Chris Brown can get anyhow. None the less, at least Trey left a little to the imagination…Mr. Brown wants you to know that he’ll “use his tongue…[he’s] the cookie monster.” Thanks Chris, way to ruin all my childhood memories. I guess I see where that metaphor can go but….Fail.
To be honest, if any of this sounded like his piece in “Ransom,” I could deal. But this is just WEAK. It’s mediocre to say the least, even strange. During “Work Wit It,” he picks up a very awkward Jamaican accent that frankly just made me uncomfortable. Ohhh DJ Drama…you will put your name on anything! as long as you get to scream GANSTA GANSTA….we know you’ll “NEVER STOP” but you should have. You just should have.
sooo Check it…let me know how impressed you are by this man’s whining and occasional cursing….
