SA-ROC an Amazing Talent

It’s about time there is a female emcee that is spitting true knowledge. Sa-Roc is truly talented, she talking about things that are relevant not this crap that is playing on the radio. Sa-Roc was born and raised in the Southeastern quadrate Washington, DC in an Afrocentric household. Sa-Roc grew up listening Go-Go a sub-genre of funk music that originated in Washington, DC. In the mid-1960s to the late 1970s, Sa-Roc also grew up listening to Jimi Hendrix, Billie Holiday, Lenny Kravitz and The Cranberries. Sa-Roc is a writer and poet. Sa-Roc was 19 years old when she started rapping her interest was piqued so she decided to write a rap. Sa-Roc was not serious until she met Sol Messiah, a Atlanta producer and Be-Boy. I think this meeting was a gift from the ‘Almighty’, because we would not have heard about this talented female emcee. Sa-Roc should be played on the radio. It’s a shame that the major record companies don’t know what to do with true talent, or should I say they are afraid of true talent because they can’t mold them into a cash machine. Like Nicki Minja, and Rihanna they are so made up and commercial. Sa-Roc is a beautiful black woman who doesn’t have to be made up plus she has talent. My favorite Sa-Roc songs are “Valley Of The Queen”, “Endustry”, “The Girl Who Could Fly”, “Dark MatterZ” and “Just-Us (4 Troy). If you have not heard any of Sa-Roc music I suggest you YouTube it, listen to her music the knowledge she rapping in all of her songs is what needs to be said and heard. Sa-Roc can be heard on Streetwise Radio.

Eve was born Eve Jihan Jeffers on November 10, 1978, she is a rapper, record producer and actress. Eve grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania while she was in school she sang in many choirs Eve formed (Dope Girl Posse or D.G.P.) this group sung songs from En Vogue and Color Me Badd. After Eve’s manager saw this rap group called ABC he said they should rap. Eve went solo after the rap group she formed split up. That was the start of “Eve of Destruction.” Eve became the first female rap artist on Billboard 200 at number one with “Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryders’ First Lady.” Eve is also an actress she played in Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back in Business with Ice Cube. Eve appeared with Vin Diesel in xXx, The Cookout with Queen Latifah and The Woodsman with Kevin Bacon. Eve in my opinion is one of the great ladies of rap. Her lyrics in her songs are so deep. The song “Love Is Blind” (featuring Faith Evans) is talking about domestic violence, I love this song she is speaking the truth. Eve’s song “Let Me Blow Your Mind” with Gwen Stefani is so good Eve says “It’s only been a year now I got my foot through the door and I aint goin nowhere”. Eve’s “Gangsta Lovin” (featuring Alicia Key) song is one of my favorites. Eve is in my opinion is and will always be one of the best female lyricist she comes deep and hard. You can hear a mix of Eve songs on Streetwise Radio. I can’t wait to hear what Eve comes out with, I hope it’s soon.

Heavy D May 24. 1967-November 8, 2011

The world has lost a talented rapper, songwriter, record producer and actor. Dwight Arrington Myers better known as Heavy D passed away on Tuesday November 8, 2011 he collapsed after returning home from shopping. The coroner’s report ruled his death was inconclusive. Heavy D was born in Mandeville Jamaica, but was raised in Mount Vernon, New York. I was saddened to hear of Heavy D’s passing. I remember when Heavy D & the Boyz came on to the music scene in the 80’s. The songs “Overweight Lover In The House”, “Girls They Love Me” were the songs that put heavy men on the map. Heavy D was not only a rapper he was also a songwriter, he wrote the theme song for the television show “In Living Color” and “Madtv. Heavy D also rapped on Michael and Janet Jacksons singles “Jam” and “Alright”. Heavy D was also a producer and has worked with and helped develop Mary J Blige he also helped Sean “Diddy” Combs. Heavy D even collaborated with Blues legend B.B. King on his “Wild Deuces” album rapping on the song “Keep It Coming”. I like Heavy D’s songs “Nuttin But Love”, and “Now That We Found Love” are still favorites of mine. I watched Heavy D performance on the 2011 BET Hip Hop Music Awards in October; I never imagine that it would be his last performance. Heavy D looked health he was singing, dancing and had the crowd on their feet. R.I.P. Heavy D you will be missed.

Kelis Rogers is an artist with her own style; her voice has a different sound on each song. Kelis was born on August 21, 1980 in Harlem, New York, she was raised by her Puerto Rican-Chinese mother, a fashion designer,and her African American father was a Pentecostal Minister and jazz musician. Kelis started off singing in the church choir and the Girls Choir of Harlem. Kelis attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Arts and Performing Arts in Manhattan, while there she played the saxophone, violin and piano. When she graduated with the help of the Neptunes production team she formed a band and landed a record deal. Kelis’s debut “Kaleidoscope” was released in 1999 this album sold 249,000 copies to date, her single “Caught Out There“, peaked to Number 9 on the Bill Board Hot R&B chart, I like that song it made me feel like saying that sometimes.. Her third album hit single “Milkshake” from the “Tasty” album was nominated for a Grammy in 2004 that was a popular song it was catchy I remember singing it. Kelis album “Flesh Tone” in my opinion is not so good but it has two songs I like are.  “Acapella” and “4th Of July.” This album is high energy, I guess if you’re a Kelis Rogers fame you might like it. Check Kelis out on Streetwise Radio.

Dance Styles Over The Years

Dance styles really have changed over the years and the music as well. Dancers have added their own flavor to it to make it more up to date. I remember back in the day at school talent shows or at party’s you had dance groups Popping and Locking to the sounds the Gap Band and Parliament Funkadelic. Popping started in Los Angeles California in 1960s- 1970s, it is one of the original funk styles of street dance. If you don’t know what Popping is, “it’s based on the technique of quickly contrasting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer’s body, referred to as a pop or hit, this done continuously to the rhythm of a song in combination with various movements and poses.” Then there was Hip-hop dance, which was a combination of popping, locking and break dancing. Hip-hop dancing is freestyle dance with a lot of improvising; dancers would battle each other to see who had the better moves. Hip-Hop dancing is more than 30 years old. The professional dance crews like Rock Steady Crew, The Lockers, and the Electric Boogaloos were instrumental in the evolution of hip-hop music. Youngsters today are doing these dances called the Jerkin and Hyphy. The Jerkin is a dance that is truly for the young, it gained popularity since 2009. Jerkin started on the streets Los Angeles California and has become popular on the East Coast , “the dance itself consist of moving your legs in and out called the “jerk”, and doing other moves such as the “reject”, “dip” and “pin drop”.  As this dance continued to grow, two rap groups wrote songs for this dance the New Boyz wrote “You’re a Jerk” and Audio Push wrote “Teach Me How to Jerk”. The hyphy dance is another dance that the youngsters do; it originated in the Bay Area California. It is a dance where their dancing out of control and again doing some amazing moves with there bodies, all this dancing is done to hip hop music. Wow! You have to be in good shape to do what these youngsters are doing. I am wondering what the new dance  youngsters will be a year from now.

Beastie Boys

When the Beastie Boys started in 1979 they were a hardcore punk band. John Berry the original guitarist suggested the name “Beastie Boys”. The letters B.E.A.S.T.I.E. stands for “Boys Entering Anarchistic State Towards Internal Excellence”. The Beastie Boys performed their first Hip Hop track “Cocky Puss” in 1983, with “Cocky Puss“ success they switched from hardcore punk to rap. The Beastie Boys recorded “Licensed to Ill” in 1986. I like this album, especially the songs “Fight For Your Right (To Party), “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”, “Paul Revere“, & “Brass Monkey”. Rolling Stone  magazine famous headline was, “Three Idiots Create a Masterpiece”. This album was the best selling rap album of the 1980s and was the first album to go No. 1 on Billboard album chart where it stayed for five weeks. On the Urban album chart it reached No. 2. Beastie Boys first single from this album “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party)” reached No. 7 on Billboard Hot 100. There was controversy with the Licensed to Ill tour. There were female members dancing in cages a giant motorized inflatable penis, lawsuits and arrests. The Beastie Boys put out  several more albums “Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head” in 1992, This album had funk and jazz songs “Lighten Up” and Something’s Got to Give” as well as hardcore punk song “Time for Livin”. In 1994 they released III Communition, the album debut No. 1 on Billboard Top 200 & No. 2 on R&B/hip hop album chart. “Sabotage” was a hit on the modern rock charts. ”Hello Nasty” was released on July 14, 1998 this album went straight to No. 1 in the US, the Uk, Germany, Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Sweden. The Beastie Boys have a new album out called “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two” I like this album. The song Funky Donky reminds me of an old Parliament tune. Nas is featured on the song “Too Many Rappers”. I like “Nonstop Disco Powerpack” song it has that old school rap sound.  I think the Beasties Boy’s may have another hit album. Listen to it on Streetwise Radio

Rihanna’s Man Down Video Under Attack

Rihanna is in the news again with her controversial video Man Down. The beginning of the video has Rihanna shooting an unarmed man in cold blood.
It does not show you why until the end. Rihanna twittered “Young girl/women all over the world…we are a lot of things! We’re strong innocent fun flirtatious vulnerable and sometime our innocence can cause us to be naïve! We always think it could Never be us, but in reality, it can happen to Any of us! So ladies be careful.” I strongly agree with Rihanna’s twitter message. As for her video I agree. I have always said if I am sexually assaulted, that person better kill me because I would hunt them down and end their life. I know it is wrong to take a life, but I can’t image that person only getting a short amount of time for what they have done. To walk the streets so they can do it again to someone else is not right. Like the Jaycee Dugard, she was abducted at the age of ten and held for eighteen years. Jaycee’s life was stolen from her. Phillip Craig Garrido was sentenced to 431 years to life. I don’t think that’s good enough, I hope in prison he is rapped every day of his 431 years. Garrido was a serial rapist he should not have been out on parole in 1976. Nancy Garrido got 36 years, that’s not enough either I hope her 36 years a pure hell. Anyone one that sexually assaults another person needs to be put down.

He's everything BUT...COMMON!"

He goes by the stage name "Common", however, compared to other hip-hop artists-turned actors...he is ironically un-common!
Born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. in Chicago 39 years ago, 'Common' was raised mostly by his mother, a PHD and educator who divorced his father, an ABA Basketball player when 'Common' was just six.
Never-the-less, both parents inspired him as a youth, with Dad Lonnie landing his son a job with the NBA's Chicago Bulls as a teenager.
Soon afterward 'Common' began to spawn his music career after forming a highschool rap trio, which actually opened for top acts like 'N.W.A.' and 'Big Daddy Kane'!
As a 20-year old Business Administration major at Florida A&M University, 'Common' debuted with the single "Take It EZ" followed by the album "Can I Borrow a Dollar?"...under the stage name "Common Sense". 
 He soon switched to the name 'Common' when a West Coast group already using "Common Sense" threatened to sue him.
'Common' eventually developed a devout underground following through the late 90's from his work with the 'Soulquarians' and his first major-label album "Like Water For Chocolate"...which launched him into the hip-hop mainstream.
Hit albums "Resurrection" and "One Day It Will All Make Sense" would follow, as 'Common teamed with veteran producer 'No I.D.' who was also the, then-mentor of 'Kanye West'.
'Common' won his first "Grammy" award in 2003 for 'Best R&B Song' "The Love Of My Life" (An Ode to Hip-Hop) with 'Erykah Badu'.
Another nomination came in 2006 for 'Best Rap Album' "Be", followed by 'Common's' 2nd "Grammy" for 'Best Duo Performance' for "Southside" featuring 'Kanye West".  Several "B.E.T Hip Hop","Black Reel" "Image", and "MTV Video Music Awards" would follow.
Through all of this, 'Common Joined an elite fraternity of hip-hop artists who have initiated bright, acting careers by scoring substancial parts in top-notch films.
His resume includes roles in "Smokin Aces", "Street Kings", "American Gangster", "Wanted", "Terminator Salvation", and "Just Wright". 
Also included in 'Common's' un-common career is a massive fued with the West Coast rap group 'Westside Connection', whereby the lyrics from his song "I Used To Love H.E.R. openly criticized the West Coast's violent path being taken towards 'Gansta Wrap'.
Lyrics not-withstanding, I distinctly enjoyed this cut, comparing it to 'Common's' usual, original, clarity of melody and pleasant vocal style.  However, this coast-to-coast war of lyric-slashing songs destructively dragged on for months until, finally...none other than 'Louis Farrakhan' managed to convince both parties to meet and make peace!
His most recent and un-common controversy happened this past week when 'Common' was invited to the White House by our First Lady Michelle Obama to be part of a special poetry reading.
Objections sparked immediately from the New Jersey State Police Department who claim that lyrics from one of 'Common's' songs called "A Song For Assata" were delivered in poor taste.  
The song is about 'Black Liberation Army' member Joanne Chesimard who was convicted of murdering a New Jersey State Trooper in 1977, and 'Common's' poetry claims she was wrongly accused while being framed and victimized by racism...thus sparking a nation-wide controversy.
Should the White House guest list include defenders of cop killers?  Or not?
'Common' has stated very clearly state that "in no way should anyone question my full support for the police officers and troops that protect us everyday".
While President Obama did not support the questionable lyrics, he believes that some of negative reports coming out about 'Common' distort what 'Common' more broadly stands for.
The loudest protests seemed to come from Fox News, Sarah Palin, and Bill O'Reilly...who all basically felt 'Common' wasn't worthy of being a White House Guest based on this and other controversial material, inspiring one remark: "I guess Sarah Palin and Fox News doesn't like me".
TV host John Stewart, however, argued on the air with Bill O'reilly that other singers such as 'Bono' and 'Bob Dylan' sang about wrongly accused yet convicted murderers, also under the shingles of the White House...yet neither received objection or criticism.
I see where I could side with Stewart in so far as...the whole thing was over done!  It will probably only enhance the already successful career of 'Common'...which should promise even more money, songs, film roles, endorsements, and controversial platforms and causes which he seems destined to include in future lyrics and songs.  Stay tuned!
Thanks, and catch 'Common' on Streetwise Radio's "Big Hop" airing every evening at 6pm!
Sincerely, PeteCam4

Lupe Fiasco

Born on February 16, 1982 as Wasalu Muhammad Jaco better known as Lupe Fiasco, is a rapper, artist, producer and CEO Lupe Fiasco grew up on the Westside of Chicago. Lupe was one of nine children. His mother was a gourmet chef and his father was a Black Panther a prolific African drummer, karate teacher, engineer and owner of a karate schools and army surplus stores. When Lupe was five his parents divorced, but his father remained a significant part of his life. His father taught him to use an
AK-47 and other guns so he could protect himself from drug dealers that lived next door and in the neighborhood. Lupe and his siblings were well educated as children. They were only allowed watched public television read National Geographic magazines and encyclopedias. Lupe did not like hip hop when he was growing up because all the negative lyrics. When he heard Nas’ 1996 album, “It Was Written” he decided he was going to rap.
His group called Da Pak first song out was about drugs guns and women.
Lupe didn‘t like the direction he was going so he left the group and went solo.  Jay-Z and Nas lyricism had a profound affect on Lupe Fiasco style a rap, rap with a message. Lupe Fiasco song “Words I Never Said“, “The Show Goes On“, “Kick, Push.”, and Daydreamin” are my favorites songs. Lupe Fiasco is not only a rapper he is a entrepreneur he founded “Righteous Kung-Fu” a fashion design , sneaker, toys, video games, comic books, graphics for album covers and skateboards decks company. I like Lupe Fiasco because he is a young rapper that raps about social things that are going on in this world. Lupe Fiasco is now playing on Streetwise Radio.

"Nate Dogg's death shocks rap world!"

Nate DoggCover of Nate Dogg
The rap world was shaken Tuesday with news from Long Beach, California regarding the death of 41-year old 'Nate Dogg', the smooth-voiced hook singer who helped 'Snoop Dogg', 'Dr.Dre', and 'Warren G.' pioneer the West Coast hip-hop and gangster-rap explosion of the early 1990's.
Born 'Nathaniel Hale', Nate Dogg suffered from ill health in recent years due to a series of strokes that left him partially paralized,  and, well may have lead to his death. No official cause has been released yet, however, it's speculated that Nate died of apparent heart failure.
From the moment the news hit, friends and collaborators have sent messages paying tribute to Nate.  "We lost a true legend in hip-hop and R& of my best friends and a brother to me since 1986 when I was at Poly High where we met", tweeted 'Snoop Dogg'. "RIP NATE DOGG"!
He first gained national attention on Dr Dre's "Death Row Records" 1992 masterpiece album "The Chronic", and earned Nate the first of his four Grammy nominations in 1995 for the hit "Regulate", a collaboration with Warren G. 
 His most recent nomination came from 'Eminem's' "Shake That" in 2007.  "Nate's voice in music will never be replaced. He created the blue print for West Coast hip-hop, and I was one of the lucky people who had the privilege to work with him, and the honor to have him as a friend", commented Eminem.
"There is a certain void in hip-hop's heart that can never be filled.  Glad we got to make history together", tweeted 'Ludacris'....who also benefitted from a catchy Nate Dogg hook on his 2001 song "Area Codes".
So many other rappers expressed grief over Nate's death, including 'Sucker Free', '50-Cent', 'Daz Dillinger', 'Obie Trice', and 'G-unit's LLoyd Banks'....all of whom (and many more) reminded us of how Nate's crooning, deep voice contributed to their success!
Nate began an interesting childhood by singing as a toddler at the local Baptist Church in Long Beach, California, and later choired at a parish that his father was pastor of in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
Returning to California, he dropped out of highschool at age 16, and left home to join the United States Marine Corp...where Nate served for three years!
Shortly thereafter, he became friends with, and partnered in the rap game with Snoop Dogg and Warren G., where they would eventually form a trio called "213".
They recorded their first demo in the back of the famed "V.I.P." record store in Long Beach, and from there it reached Dr. Dre's ears while attending a house party! 
Not surprisingly, Dre was impressed with Nate's soulful voice, and so began a history with Death Row Records from 1993 to 1998.
Nate has also been featured in many of the late 'Tupac's' releases including the album 'Thug Life Volume- One', along with his own double album "G-Funk Classics Volume 1&2...which was followed  in 2001 by "Music and Me"--which peaked at number three on the 'Billboard' hip-hop charts.
While Nate Dogg has been featured in,  and contributed to over 40 chart singles over the years, one can't help but expect that he will be rememberd fondly in many more to come by the multitude of stars, friends, and fans that listened to, and loved him!
Remember to check out many of  Nate Dogg's hits on Streetwise Radio's daily show Big Hop airing every evening at 7pm!
Thanks, and keep listening
Sincerely, PeteCam4

Bruno Mars was born Peter Gene Hernandez on October 8, 1985 in Honolulu
Hawaii. When Bruno was two years old his father nicknamed him that because
of his resemblance to chubby professional wrestler Bruno Sammartino. Bruno
grew up in a musical family; he was exposed to different genres of music
like reggae, hip-hop, rock and R&B. At a young age Bruno was impersonating
and performing songs by artist like Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, The
Isley Brothers, and The Temptations. Bruno was featured in Midweek a
tabloid magazine as “Little Elvis” this led to a cameo in the film
Honeymoon in Vegas. Bruno said “I watch the best. I’m a big fan of Elvis.
I’m a big fan of 1950s Elvis when he would go on stage and scare people
because he was a force and girls would go nuts! You can say the same thing
for Prince or The Police. It’s just guys who know that people are here to
see a show, so I watch those guys and love studying them because I’m a

Bruno is a versatile singer-songwriter and music producer; he has written
and produced songs with Alexandra Burke, Travie McCoy, Adam Levine,
Brandy, Sean Kingston and Flo Rida. Bruno also co-wrote the Sugababes hit
song “Get Sexy” and produced backing vocals on their album Sweet 7. Bruno
first musical appearance as a singer was with Far East Movement’s second
studio album Animal, featured on the track “3D”. Bruno reached solo artist
prominence after being featured on and co-writing B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You”
and Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” both songs hit the top ten worldwide.

In 2010 I was watching the Soul Train Music Awards, Bruno performed
“Grenade” that was the first time I heard of Bruno Mars, that is when I
became a fan that young man could sing! Bruno won a Soul Train Music Award
for Song of the Year for “Nothin’ on You”. I guess with fame comes the bad
influences. That same year Bruno was arrested in Las Vegas for possession
of cocaine on September 19. 2010. When Bruno was talking to a police
officer, he reportedly stated what he did was “foolish” and that “he has
never used drugs before”.

Bruno won a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “Just the way
You Are” February 2011. I like Bruno Mars; he is a good singer and song
writer who will be around for a longtime if he does not get caught up with
the bad influences. All you Bruno Mars fans you a listen to Bruno Mars on
Streetwise Radio Ultra Mix.

NellyCover of Nelly

I always liked Nelly every since he was with the St. Lunatics. When he went solo in 2000 with his debut album Country Grammar Nelly was on his way. Country Grammar which was the title for the album this single was a
top ten hit. The Country Grammar album is Nelly’s top selling album to date. Nelly’s critics thought he was a novelty when he first debut. Nelly showed them that he was here to stay with his second album Nellyville.This album produced number one hits “Hot in Here” and “Dilemma” featuring
Kelly Roland former singer of Destiny’s Child. Nelly had other singles on Nellyville like “Work It” featuring Justin Timberlake, “Air Force One”,featuring Murphy Lee and the St. Lunatics, “Pimp Juice” and “#1”. Nelly is
an artist that has the cross over appeal. He has worked with artist like Tim McGraw “Over and Over”, Brian McKnight “All Night Long”, Fergie “Party People” and Rick Ross “Here I Am”. Nelly has a new album out 5.0 on this
album \the single “Just a Dream” is Nelly’s highest charting single since his song Gritz in 2005. Nelly is no novelty; his rapping style is described by Peter Shapiro as "unforgettable hooks based on schoolyard songs, double-dutch chants, and nonsense rhymes" and has a "Missouri
twang". All music suggests Nelly's style is based largely on where he comes from - "Nelly's locale certainly informs his rapping style, which is as much country as urban, and his dialect as well, which is as much Southern drawl as Midwestern twang". I can tell when Nelly is singing; on
other artist songs he has that unique sound. I am so glad Nelly is still singing and rapping in his unique style of his. You can listen to Nelly on
Streetwise Radio.

Chris Brown

Fan of a Fan (mixtape)Image via Wikipedia

Born Christopher Maurice Brown on May 5, 1989, in Tappahannock, Virginia,
Chris taught himself to dance at young age copying his inspiration Michael
Jackson. Chris started performing in his church choir and local talent
shows. Chris’s mother recognized his vocal talent while he was performing
an Usher song. She began to look for a record deals, for her son. At a young age Chris had personal issues. Chris was terrified of his mother’s boyfriend all the time, due to his domestic violence against his mother.
Chris had no idea that seeing his mother being beat on by her boyfriend for years before would have a profound affect on him. I think growing up around that kind of violence does have an affect on children. When little
girls see their mothers being beat on continuously, more than likely they are drawn to the same kind of male figure. Little boys when they see this kind of violence they think it is all right to beat on females. Chris was charged with domestic violence against Rihanna in 2009.

Chris Brown has put this domestic violence charge behind him. Even though his sponsors at the time dropped him and radio stations took his music off the play list. In 2010 on the BET Awards he performed a tribute to Michael
Jackson. While singing “Man in the Mirror” Chris started crying and fell to his knees. I saw his performance, I was even choked up, he truly sung from the heart. I can imagine what he was going through and how sorry he
was for everything he had done the year before. Chris Brown collaborated with Tyga they came out with a mix tape titled “Fan of a Fan” in 2010.
“Deuces” featuring Tyga and Kevin McCall, this single hit number one on the R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart for seven consecutive weeks. Giving Chris Brown his first number one hit single since “Say Goodbye” in 2006. Chris’s
album F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies) has two singles “Yeah 3x” released in October 2010 and “Look at Me Now” Featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes released in January 2011. F.A.M.E. album will be released in March of 2011. Will this album earn Chris Brown some more number one hits or a Grammy ?

Chris Brown is an actor as well as a singer. He has acted in a number of television and movies.  In 2007 he stared in three episodes of the television show The O.C. as Will Tutt. In 2008 he was the guest star on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Chris had his first film debut in 2007 in
“Stomp the Yard” this was a small role. That same year he landed one of the main roles in “This Christmas” as Michael ‘Baby’ Whitfield. In 2010 he played Jessie Attica along side Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Idris Elba,
Hayden Christensen Michael Ealy and T.I. the crime thriller “Takers”. Chris was also one of the executive producers of this movie. I saw this movie it was good, I liked Chris’s role he played it very well. Chris will
also be in the movie “Phenom” coming in the year 2012.

All that Chris Brown has been through in his short life, I hope he has learned his lesson. I like Chris Brown as a singer and actor I wish him well.
