R&B/Pop star Chris Brown has announced his sixth album. Although there is not yet a release date, the Richmond, Virginia vet will title his 2012 Fortune album, X. The 23 year-old controversial figure’s upcoming album already has at least one high-profile Hip Hop guest, Kendrick Lamar.
The resulting collaboration, reportedly titled “Autumn Leaves” was described by Chris Breezy as “If you’re in your car just riding, it’s perfect. It just feels like a weather record—an emotional record. I feel a certain way when I hear it.” MTV, who conducted the interview, reported the song to have a tempo inspired by a heartbeat. Production on the album has been confirmed by Diplo, as well as former Timbaland protege and fellow V.A. native Danja (f/k/a Danjahandz).
As for the overall title, Chris claims it takes on a number of meanings. “The song and the album title ‘X’ has a couple different meanings,” explained the longtime Sony Records star. “It can refer to an ex-girlfriend, in terms of you always look forward to moving forward from. It’s also about being a reject in a sense. In me being myself, being able to grow up, me not always hanging around the right crowd or doing the right thing all the time—it’s me saying, ‘I’m over it. I’m past the bullsh– now.’”
Fortune was a #1 debut for Chris Brown, selling approximately 135,000 copies upon its June, 2012 release. It was Brown’s second #1.
B.G.’s legal saga has come to an unfortunate conclusion for the New Orleans rapper.
Nola.com reports that the former Hot Boy was sentenced Wednesday (July 18) to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering.
The report provides that B.G. arrived in a jumpsuit, and sat in a wheelchair.
The rapper, who was arrested after a 2009 traffic stop, previously pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. He then obstructed justice by convincing one of his associates to claim ownership of the gun.
Prosecutors reportedly sough a 25-year prison sentence, citing B.G.’s past criminal activity. Prosecutors also claimed that he was “profiting off of New Orleans’ “cycle of violence,” pointing to his music videos as an example, but U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan declined to use them as a basis for a lengthier sentence.
