Chris Brown, Big Sean Spit ‘Open Bar’ Freestyles on Power 106

Chris Brown

During his visit to Power 106′s #LIFTOFF show, Chris Brown put his freestyle skills to the test for the “Open Bar” series using four bars and four topics. Over Migos’ “Fight Night,” Breezy rapped about thots, drunk texting, girls looking through your phone, and L.A. women.

Big Sean also stopped by the show and laid down some hot bars over Drake’s “0 to 100.” His topics included Floyd Mayweather, L.A. girls, Nicki Minaj’s ass (“You know I was the first one to have her bend it over in a video”), and crazy chicks, but he stopped short on the last topic.

“I’m in enough headlines right now. I might have to stop while I’m ahead,” laughed Naya Rivera’s ex.

Sean has collaborated with Chris on a new song for his upcoming album, due later this year or in early 2015. They previously scored a hit with 2011′s “My Last.”
