Chris Brown, ‘Real Hip-Hop #3′ – Song Review
Chris Brown turned heads when he showcased his rapid-fire rap flow in the 'Look at Me Now" video early this year. And, once again, Breezy will blow people's mind when they hear him spit rhymes over the 9th Wonder-produced track, 'Real Hip-Hop #3.'
For those of you who may not be familiar with 9th Wonder, he's a Grammy-winning producer who has created songs for Mary J. Blige, Nas, Erykah Badu and Jay-Z just to name a few. For Brown to reach out to the North Carolina producer for a beat means that he's trying to build his street cred with real "hip-hop purists" and show them that he can rock the mic.
Over a thunderous beat and eerie synths, Brown bust a braggadocios flow about women he gets, the car he drives, the chain he buys and why the media won't stop his grind. "I know your mad 'cause I [can] afford it / TMZ I'm wiping my a-- / So stop recordin' / Supposedly a singer can't do hip-hop / But I just killed this s--t / So let the s--- rock," he raps.
'Real Hip-Hop #3' will probably be the most talked about track of the week. The 9th Wonder beat is banging, so there will be hundreds of rappers redoing this song so they can one-up Breezy -- good luck with that. In the end, much like Brown's other viral song, 'Look At Me Now,' everyone is looking at him right now … 'cause he's getting paper.
