About Chris Brown & Tyga
These kindred spirits require little introduction, but for those who've been living under a rock for the past decade...
Chris: Love him or hate him, Chris Brown is widely considered to be one of, if not the most talented contemporary male R&B artist currently working. Over the course of his nine-year career, the equally talented singer and dancer has collaborated with the likes of Tyga, B.o.B., The Game, Lil Wayne, Juicy J, Dj Khaled, Ace Hood, Wiz Khalifa, Ciara, T.I., Diddy, Justin Bieber, J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Master P, Lucadris, Pusha T, will.i.am, Kendrick Lamar, Pitbull and many more. Despite his talent, not only does Brown still has a notorious rep for mistakes he made in the past, he continues to make them. In the past twelve months, he’s been accused and/or arrested for assault several times (once in connection with a studio brawl with Frank Ocean), was the subject of a hit-and-run investigation, and has been in and out of rehab (he’s currently undergoing a session.) Despite this, he recently launched a backpack line, and his perpetually-delayed album X is still highly anticipated. Expect it this year.
Tyga: Tyga is one of YMCMB’s most successful young signees, catapulted into the mainstream by the success of his 2012, DJ Mustard-produced hit "Rack City", which reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified Platinum twice over. Throughout his brief six-year career, the Compton-born emcee has collaborated with the likes of Chris Brown, The Game, Kevin McCall, Lil Wayne, YG , Kid Ink, Ice Cube, Nelly, Gucci Mane, Mally Mall, Wiz Khalifa, Master P, Swizz Beatz, Bow Wow, Busta Rhymes, Travis Porter, Nicki Minaj, E-40, Juicy J, Brandy, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Future,Meek Mill, Mystikal, Chamillionaire, and more, releasing three studio albums, two compilations and fifteen mixtapes. Most recently, he dropped a new tape titled Well Done 4, released his new Reebok "T-Raww Brass" kicks, hit the studio with Kanye West and dropped $2.2 million on a new Maybach. Stay tuned for the further adventures of T-Raww.
The duo have reunited in 2014 for a sequel to their 2010 collaborative mixtape Fan Of A Fan, which will be released as an album. Stay tuned for updates on their activity as a unit, y'all.
