CHRIS BROWN IS HIMSELF

Chris Brown is really comfortable onstage. He told us that his biggest competition, performing wise, is himself. Head over to ChrisBrownWorld.com to catch clips of Brown performing his songs.

And speaking of Chris…

Last night a video was uploaded to World Star Hip Hop that shows Frank Ocean being chased (or followed rather) through the streets of Weho by what is suppose to be Chris Brown’s cousins Mijo and Trell (of Young Money??). According to the ‘alleged’ story, Frank Ocean came down to Chris’ dance studio looking for him yesterday evening but started to run once he actually saw him. Chris Brown’s boys then hopped in a vehicle and started chasing him while yelling ‘What it do! Take the Fade Nicca!!!!”.

There has to be pieces of this story that is missing because I refuse to believe that Frank Ocean decided to roll up to Chris’ studio alone (unless a man-to-man apology was in order) and I’m even more confused as to why Chris’s homies thought that he was going to stop his car for some cats driving like maniacs while yelling and screaming, ‘Catch the Fade’. Frank’s only reply in the entire video was, “…but I don’t know ya’ll though”….and I believe he may have asked “Where he at?” at some point o_o
