Anti-Chris Brown dance song, 'My Flow So Tight' by Smoke Jumpers, gets radio play
A song criticizing Chris Brown is getting air play.
The song is called “My Flow So Tight” by a little-known dance group called Smoke Jumpers. It features the repeated line: “Chris Brown should get his ass kicked.”
A Web site for the group hyped the song as “the official Chris Brown dis record.” Radio stations in cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York have recently begun playing it. (You can also hear it on the band's Web site.)
C.W. Griz, a member of the group who declined to give his real name since he expected Brown to be angered by the song, said Friday that he didn’t think enough people in the music industry had spoken out against the singer.
The 19-year-old Brown allegedly beat his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, on the night of the Grammy Awards in February. Brown is scheduled for arraignment on felony assault and criminal threat charges on Monday.
“I was really upset with the way a lot of celebrities and people were handling the situation,” said C. W. Griz. “Not enough people were speaking out against Chris Brown. What he did was a thousand percent wrong.”
He pledged the group would donate a portion of the proceeds from the song to organizations benefiting battered women, but declined to say how much or specify a charity.
“We’re not trying to take advantage of a horrible situation,” said C.W. Griz. “We want to take a positive stance.”
A publicist for Brown didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Friday
