Chris Brown Joins the Post-Thanksgiving Mixtape Brigade With ‘Before the Party’
The project features Rihanna, Fetty Wap, and more
Usually the day after Thanksgiving brings with it hangovers, huge sales, and loads of TV bingeing, but the music community — Erykah Badu, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and Fabolous among them — seems to have thrown those conventions out the window today, dropping mixtape after mixtape in the past 24 hours in an attempt to take command of what’s usually a quiet news cycle.
Chris Brown’s the latest singer to join that club today, dropping a surprise new tape called Before the Party, which features guest appearances from Fetty Wap, Wale, Tyga, Rihanna (they could stop), Wiz Khalifa, and more. Download the 34-track (really) tape for free via DatPiff and watch the 26-year-old’s new “Fine By Me” video below. Brown’s full-length new studio effort, Royalty, hits shelves on December 18.
