Chris Brown feat. Justin Bieber - "Ladies Love Me" (Prod. By David Banner)

I wrote about Chris Brown taking his first steps toward becoming a full fledged rapper and watched as he quickly went from doing cool little songs with Tyga to having the first single of F.A.M.E. feature himself sparring with rap heavyweights like Busta Rhymes and Lil' Wayne. Some may have had a hard time buying Brown as a rapper, but I give it too the kid, he not only managed to keep up, I'd say he put in a memorable performance in his own right.

I feel like a proud blogger.

Today Chris dropped his most recent mixtape, Boy In Detention, which was promoted as being his "Hip-Hop mixtape" but features Brown singing almost as much as he's spitting bars. The difference between this tape and "Fan Of A fan" is there seems to be a concerted effort by Chris to prove he's capable of making "Real Hip-Hop"

Don't front. That was aight.

But this? This is simply incredible. Chris links up with the other singing/rapping Canadian and I think Justin Bieber a.k.a Shawty Mane just murdered Chris Brown on his own shit.

David Banner provides the beat and manages to take the spacey blips and chirps from Diplo & Afrojack's instrumental for "Look At Me Now" and flip them into an elastic concoction that's even more far out then the original. I don't think the crown is in jeopardy just yet, but when you got R&B and Pop cats going harder then cats who actually rap for a living?

Rappers Are In Danger!

At least we have a pretty good idea of what that Chris Brown x Kreayshawn song is gonna sound like (No Shots).

It's gonna happen. I be having the ill visions, God.

Here's the rest of Young Breezy's latest mixtape opus in full...for the skreets, Boy In Detention, with features from Kevin McCall, Swizz Beatz, Dawn Richard, and some other people from Chris's last mixtape with production from 9th Wonder, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Info and Big K.R.I.T. (It's actually just Chris throwing a verse on this song, but this sleeper joint was already kinda crazy before CB jumped on it so it's appearance here does nothing but help. This Berner cat must be ecstatic.).

Another highlight is the No Big Sean version of "My Last". Not sure if this was created after the fact or if it was edited out of the original version of the song for some reason. CB kinda snaps here too.
