Review: Chris Brown Plays Druggie, Victim, Playboy And Sex God On ‘X Files’ EP

It’s November, and for the Chris Brown brigade, the thirst for new music is definitely real. While Brown’s sixth studio album X has been postponed for much of 2013, he releases a six-track EP of what seems to be leftovers from his new project. And there we have X Files. While none of the new songs are sniffing the timeless feel of “Fine China,” there are some enjoyable gems on the hold-you-over release. Scalpel in hand, VIBE goes in to dissect X Files, song-by-song. —John Kennedy
