The Embryonic Stage: Young Chris Brown’s ascent to stardom

Chris Brown was destined for greatness from the jump. This small-town Virginia guy found his groove in belting out tunes and popping locks as soon as he could talk and walk. He was obsessed with Michael Jackson and could mimic his dance moves down to the last twirl. As he grew up, his taste in music started including big names like James Brown, Sam Cooke, Usher, and Ginuwine.

Brown got his big break at the tender age of 13, when a local production company, Hitmission Records, spotted him. They gave him a hand in recording a demo and introduced him to the bigwigs at record labels in New York. His infectious energy and silky voice scored him a contract with Jive Records just a year later. The ambitious high-school kid decided to go all-in on his emerging singing career.

With the right blend of fresh face charm and seasoned vibes, Brown dropped his debut self-titled album in 2005. First single “Run It!” had him climbing the charts almost overnight. In its first week, the album sold a whopping 154,000 copies, got the triple platinum certification, and ended up selling more than three million copies. Just like that, Christopher Maurice Brown, who used to be the small-town kid trying to dance like MJ, became Chris Brown, global phenomenon. The music world and fans saw the rise of a new star. For Chris himself, it was the realization of a dream he’d been chasing his whole life.

Dollars and Discography: The monetary triumph of a music mogul

Since the release of his first album, Chris has been doing well for himself. It’s been reported he makes $5 million a year these days, though that figure fluctuates according to his album release and touring schedules. Speaking of live shows, Chris earns from $100,000 to $150,000 for a performance.

Beats & Burgers: Chris Brown’s alternative revenue streams

Chris’s ride onto the entrepreneurial highway kicked off in 2012, when he dropped Black Pyramid. This is not your run-of-the-mill streetwear brand, it’s all about that hip-hop swag, from snapbacks to track pants. The brand is now worldwide, with customers from the States to Amsterdam to Tokyo rocking these threads.

From the stage to the clothing rack wasn’t enough for Brown—he also swooped in on some fast-food cheddar by owning a whopping (whopper?) 14 Burger King joints. Seems as though his time in jail made him appreciate the little things that freedom grants you. He told Rolling Stone in 2014, “A burger tastes 1,000 times better when you’re out.” It probably tastes better when you make money off of each one sold.

Not one to rest on those entrepreneurial laurels, he also cruised into showbiz by setting up his own record label in 2013: CBE Entertainment. No prizes for guessing what CBE stands for, but it’s also Chris’s way of saying he’s about ‘Culture Beyond Your Evolution’ and ‘Culture Beyond Your Experience’. He’s playing a bigger game here than just his own career.

From Huracans to Hospitals: Chris Brown’s lavish possessions and philanthropy

Chris Brown has got $50 million in the bank, and boy does he know how to spend it.

Like most celebrities, Chris Brown loves his swanky set of wheels. His garage is home to an LW Lamborghini Huracan, a Widebody Bentley Bentayga, a SHERP all-terrain truck, not to mention a Mustang Shelby GT500. Plus, he’s thrown some extra spice into the mix with a badass Rezvani Tank and a sexy Lamborghini Aventador SV.

He has also opened his checkbook for some pretty great causes. For instance, back in 2015, he gave a chunk of his album sales from Royalty (a sweet shoutout to his daughter) to Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

A Royal Family: Chris Brown’s personal life

Chris was born to a mother who worked in a daycare and a dad who earned a living as a prison officer. His parents divorced when Chris was seven. Soon, his mother—along with Chris and his older sister Lytrell—moved in with his new stepfather. Chris has said that he would lie awake at night and hear the sound of his new father figure beating his mom.

Fast-forward to Chris as an adult and he is now a father himself. His first kid? A cute little girl named Royalty, who came into the world on May 27, 2014, courtesy Nia Guzman. Then on November 20, 2019, along with his girlfriend, Ammika Harris, he added another child to the squad: a son, Aeko. Aeko and Ammika live in Germany, but that doesn’t stop Chris from playing a parent. It was recently revealed that Chris is a father once more—this time to a girl so lovely, they gave her that name. Chris’s relation to Lovely Brown was confirmed in April 2022, the daughter of Diamond Brown, who was linked with Chris starting back in June 2019.

Courts & Confinement: Controversies in Chris Brown’s life

Chris Brown has seen a fair share of controversy, with his name almost a synonym for legal drama and scandal.

On February 8, 2009, he was accused of roughing up his ex Rihanna and putting her in the hospital. On June 22 Chris would plead guilty to felony assault and accept a plea deal. Community service and five years’ probation would follow, along with domestic violence counseling.

In 2013, Chris checked into rehab voluntarily, but was then ejected for violent behavior during a family session. The doctors diagnose him with bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. He is then relocated to a live-in anger management rehab center where he would spend the next three months.

Chris was then served a restraining order at the behest of an ex, Karrueche Tran, who claimed Brown was firing off violent texts to her. Chris’s alleged behavior would be in violation of the probation stemming from his assault on Rihanna.
