Seems like Ray J put a little Scoot-E Bike time aside to work on a new project he’s planning to release with Chris Brown?
According to Billboard, the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star originally wanted to take legal action against rapper Kanye West for name-dropping him in his single “Famous” and getting him in hot water with his now-wife, Princess Love. However, instead of taking the legal route, Ray decided to take a different approach and drop a visual project of his own.
The first single set to be released, also titled “Famous”, will feature Chris Brown, who was also one of the look-a-likes featured in Wests’ video. In an interview Ray reportedly said,
I really wasn’t going to put out another album because I was doing my tech and bikes, but I went in the studio, and I felt like I was just connecting with the music. The bars started coming. You can’t fault me and Chris for responding to all the things that have been done about us [in the media] over the last few months.
Unlike his adversary, Ray didn’t exactly drop Kanye’s name but releasing a single with the same name isn’t exactly subtle. The project will stream on LookHu.com whose CEO Byron Booker told Billboard it will be,
A controversial record in which Ray sets the record straight, reclaims his power and moves forward. [Chris Brown] is going to be talking about his rendezvous with certain celebrities in his past, as well as certain women that he helped catapult to fame.
Redemption for Ray and Chris is more than fitting seeing as how Ray was one of the people in Chris Brown’s Tarzana home where the 27-year old singer was charged with assault following an incident. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ray is reported to having said about the situation,
It hurts my feelings that you work so hard to try to get better, and a small little lint of a story that you don’t even know is even real or not can affect you this much without even getting the facts. That’s not how the system is suppose to work. That’s not what we vote for.
Ray J’s visual album is also set to feature Snoop Dogg, The Game, Too Short, Justin Beiber and Kid Ink.
This season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, Ray J has actually focused most of his professional energy on his new line of Scoot-E-Bikes.
