Two weeks ago, Chris Brown released his group mixtape with OHB, Just before The Trap: Nights In Tarzana. Last week, he dropped his new single, “Grass Ain’t Greener,” off of his upcoming eighth solo album. This week, the constant flow of new CB music continues, with his appearance on “Wishing,” DJ Drama’s new single.
The track, a warm up for Dram’s High quality Street Music two, also characteristics Skeme and LyQuin. And, hopefully, it means that the mixtape legend’s upcoming album — which will be his very first because 2012’s Good quality Street Music — is on the way.
“I attempted to place every little thing that I’d ever completed into the 1st album due to the fact it was my initial,” Dram mentioned on his Soundcloud page. “But now that I’m on album 5 I’m even far more consistent, the physique of perform is far more comprehensive, and I’ve identified a sound that actually represents my brand. Good quality Street Music signifies consistency, creativity and hip-hop in its purest form.”

The guys also shot a video for the single, which appears like it consists of a guest appearance from 50 Cent, who lately worked with Chris on his “I’m the Man” remix and “No Romeo No Juliet.”
This is a start — now let’s get a release date on that High quality Street Music two, Dram.
They defy animation, these startled, pixilated tiny hieroglyphs in black and white. The sweet-and-doleful minimalism of the Peanuts comic strips is/was their joy. We even laugh quietly: a guffaw might blow them away.
The “good news, undesirable news” story in Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie (apart from its boasting the worst rolling-stock title of the year) is that the drawing is fabulous and the script and path are a fright. Steve Martino — not, alas, Steve Martin with cod-Latin sobriquet — presses the accelerator on an already over-busy screenplay by, among other people, Craig and Bryan Schulz. They are Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz’s son and grandson and should know greater. The comic strip was by no means about helter-skelter comedy. It was about non-sequitur, inanity, spooked entrancement. (And it by no means had accompanying songs.)
A lot more
The very good news? The characters are sketched, even in motion, with a loving fidelity. Shut your eyes and ears to the story overkill and you could be there in the funny pages with Lucy, Charlie, Marcie and Co. Even enabling — and we will — for colour and 3D.
