Kid Fury's Blog: The Days of Our Lives With Chris Brown's Fists

 

 


 

There was a gleeful spark in my heart for Chris Brown these past few weeks. The whole Rihanna super combo drama seemed to be cooling down and allowing folk to move on. I stopped calling him The King of Iron Fist Tournament, he got praises for his ding-a-ling, his music sounds great and the guy just seemed pretty happy.  

Then he decided to pop, lock and drop his Good Morning America dressing room from wall-to-wall, after host Robin Roberts brought up that red-headed ex-girlfriend again. I thought “Forgiving All My Enemies” meant looking past scorn and hatred and finding inner peace, but apparently it’s when you bust out windows, rip off your shirt and walk out on hating ass heauxs.

So here we are again with people calling Christopher an angry and emotionally unstable jigaboo child. Personally, I’m trying to be fair, but a G is over it. I’d like to say I understand CB’s frustration. Yeah, he had Rihanna’s face looking like Seal’s, but he’s apologized several times and I believe he genuinely regrets his actions. It has to be awfully discouraging to try and progress and prosper when millions of people continue to bring up the past. He is only human, just as the rest of us and he deserves peace.

On the other hand, Chris has to realize that he’s going to be wearing that Ike Turner mask for the rest of his natural high-yellow life. Besides, this week’s story is sketchy. Robin Roberts claims that she asked Chris for permission to discuss the Bajan beatdown and he agreed. So why would you go Tasmanian Devil in these white people’s studio if you knew the questions were coming? Well on Wednesday’s 106 & Lawn Chair, Brown claims that he didn’t expect that topic to come up and he felt exploited. So who’s lying? If you ask me, the interview wasn’t even worthy of that kind of reaction either way. He should have fucked up that shady ass Larry King!

Was he truly pissed off? Was it a stunt for album sales? Maybe he wanted to make an example out of someone. Regardless, my sympathy for our golden-brown friend gets canceled out by his sheer stupidity, which could possibly lead to the judge throwing that ass in prison...and after seeing the photo that leaked, we all know he won’t make it in there.

The good news is that Chris Brown’s album, F.A.M.E. is already expected to debut at #1 next week with 250,000-275,000 copies sold, and yes I bought one. That’s the shit I like to hear. Now in the meantime, let’s hope nobody sings “S&M” in his presence. He might drive into a fucking hot dog stand and kick puppies or something.

Who'd-A-Thunk?: Sir Elton John Is A Huge Fan Of A Tribe Called Quest

Sir Elton John interviewed Q-Tip for his Beats 1 radio show, Rocket Hour, where he raved about A Tribe Called Quest’s influence and impact. In clips of the episode, the “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” singer called Q-Tip “a legend,” and thanked him for his service with the Tribe, who he called the “seminal hip-hop band of all-time.”

“If you don’t know A Tribe Called Quest, you’re stupid,” he said. “But if you listen to [‘Electric Relaxation’], you’ll understand why I rave about them.” Sir Elton John was part of ATCQ’s final album, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, for the song “Solid Wall Of Sound." The latter interpolates the British musician’s song “Bennie And The Jets.”

“I was so happy to play that,” Sir Elton beamed of the 2016 song. “That’s where we first met you came to London, and we did a track in the studio, and it was such a huge honor for me. I was so excited. I just absolutely love this. This is such a takedown of what’s going on … That is such a great track. The album is a fantastic record. If you’re gonna bow out with a record, you better do something like that.”

Q-Tip was audibly thrilled to hear the compliments from the music legend, stating that John’s thoughts on “Electric Relaxation” being one of his favorite tracks from the year 1993 was a “pinch-me” moment.

“I’m just like still kind of like, ‘Am I dreaming?’ I feel like I’m in a different universe,” he said.

Elton John has been vocal about his appreciation for hip-hop and R&B in the past. Recently, he did a cover of Khalid’s song “Young, Dumb and Broke,” and he has an affinity for the music and style of Young Thug.

Emotional Orange Releases Callings Of Love On "Corners Of My Mind"

Mysterious duo Emotional Oranges are taking a reflective route with "Corners Of My Mind," a gentle ode to an old love.

The track which can be found on the duo's SoundCloud page was inspired by their friend who went through a bad breakup. It seems to be the fitting track towards the end of a coming of age romance where the couple goes their separate ways. In an email to VIBE, the faceless group explained how love was the seed that planted the smooth track.

"I watched a close friend go through an awful heartbreak recently," they said. "This song was birthed by me attempting to reflect on how I would have reacted had it happened to me. The irony is as he was losing love, I was finding new love. It made the whole process of writing it all quite painful."

The LA-based pair croons about a painful love life on the soft pop beat. "It was yesterday/You couldn't look me in my eyes, and then/There was nothing more that I could say/I thought what we had was unbreakable/Guess I was wrong/Opened it up, gave you my all/I know it seemed like you weren't enough/Try to forget, peace and reset/But I can't forgive you no more." 

Emotional Oranges have released just a few singles, including the bouncy bop "Motion" and "Personal" that gained fanfare online.

According to the musical pair's Twitter page, fans can expect a new EP, as well as a tour announcement and "cute merch" following "Corners Of My Mind."

 

it’s going to be an exciting few weeks for the orange gang 🍊! new music, ep + tour announce, cute merch etc can’t wait for you guys to see it all x pic.twitter.com/R6biAHWl26

Allow Salma Slims To Provide "Seasoning" With Her Irresistible Flow

Salma Slims has come out the kitchen with some new heat.

The Private Club Records prodigy recently released a new song titled "Seasoning," giving her fans the sauce they've craved and then some.

"My flow change like seasons/this that sauce that seasoning/do the whole rap game breezy," Slims rapped on the record produced by Cam Wallace who has worked with artists such as Ty Dolla $ign and Sevyn Streeter. The track single is a teaser for what fans can expect for the artist's and model's upcoming project Runway Rapper expected later this year.

Although she's presently an up-and-coming hip-hop artist and a successful model, instead of rapping about the current "hats" she wears, Slims recalled her past life working in retail as a reminder of tough days.

"Double the dose/I  do this s**t for my bros/I do this s**t for the days I was workin' at Lowes/That s**t was pushin' me close," she rhymed as she rode the beat. Slims also had smoke for anyone who could be bitin' her style and how chasing a "bag" is the only thing she needs.

"Might take a hit from the bong/B***h I get lit while I'm gone/Bitin' my style man, n***as is clones/They just can't leave me alone/I'm in the house like Jerome/I'm in the house like Jerome/Might put life in a song/I put my life in a song." 

"One eighty on the dash/Lil' n***a speeding/Big bag only thing I'm needing/I'm bad Mike Jack wanna beat it." 

Keep an eye out for Atlanta's rising rapper, she's the pinch of seasoning the industry needs.
