A recent article in Huffington Post described Chris Brown in no uncertain terms as a prodcucer and songwriter of genius proportions:
'In addition to being an accomplished musician what drew me to Chris Brown was his social activism. Most recently, Chris founded the Pros and Cons Music Mentoring Program at Pittsburgh Institution in Kingston, Ontario, where Chris continues to run music workshops. These workshops led to Chris to produce and record - what Exclaim! Magazine calls an “inescapably honest and sincere” recording - with some prisoners entitled Postcards from the County. Chris’ ongoing work with inmates has been lauded throughout North America and his program was recently honored with a generous grant from the David Rockefeller Fund to help expand it to other correctional facilities.'
