Well here's my 2 cent. I loved his story. I loved his claim to fame. Enjoyed his dancing and clean image. Bought his first album. Supported another young brutha on the come up. Cool, right? Then he gets with Rihanna. They seemed like the young Beyonce and Jay. Ever so talented, careers ahead of each other...Then we got introduced to him as a person. Which is different from his persona or image. Look, I'm about real. I believe people still hate him and are mad at him because He still hasn't really learned what he did or did wrong. I think he just figured he'll get a slap on the wrist and some community service and it'll be over. Like if you had a lot of unpaid parking tickets or something, but wrong, he got exposed trying to play the media game and sympathy card and not actually trying to understand why it all happened. I don't hate Chris Brown for what happened. I just think he showed his age and who he was. We all have trials and tribulations, but it's how we react to them that shows who you are. It shows your growth, your upbringing your mindset. You can only control you. I don't care if Rihanna said that she had been sleeping with 90 football players and that's why he hit her. You don't violently react. you control you and leave the situation. You control you. You control what you say, how you say it, how you react. And sadly he flipped out and assaulted her. Now in order to grow beyond this you as a person have to reflect. You have to take responsibility for your own actions and Man up.
I believe the reason people don't respect him anymore is because he never verbally accepted the part that he played that night. He said he'll do community service etc, but didn't go on Tv and say in detail what he did. He just continued to talk about "regretting the events of the night in question." and constantly "apologizing". But we don't know for what. He never explained his side of the story. He never accepted what happened and grew from it. So to me until he does that he'll still be ostracized.
Of all the top hip-hop songs of 2008, one will live on my "Dance" iTunes playlist for a long time: Chris Brown's "Forever." Released in May 2008, the best part of the song is the catchy techno-meets-hip-hop beat. Lush atmospheric synth riffs mix with the percussive stomp of hip-hop to form a rousing dance beat, which seems to be an increasingly common sound amongst hip-hop artists. Over the techno, Chris Brown delivers energetic lyrics … more
