Editor’s note: The group’s name was originally, incorrectly reported as the Smoke Jumpers.
“My Flow So Tight” — a Jump Smokers song that criticizes Chris Brown because of the alleged altercation between him and Rihanna — is gaining radio airplay in cities across the country.
One line in the song says, “[artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] should get his a– kicked.” Radio stations in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago have begun to play the song, The Associated Press reports.
According to the Jump Smokers’ Web site, “A portion of the proceeds [from the song] will benefit various organizations for battered women.” No further details were available about which charity the funds would be going to.
“I was really upset with the way a lot of celebrities and people were handling the situation. Not enough people were speaking out against Chris Brown,” one of the group’s members, C.W. Griz, told the AP about the R&B singer, who is scheduled to be arraigned Monday. “What he [allegedly] did was a thousand percent wrong. We’re not trying to take advantage of a horrible situation. We want to take a positive stance.”
At press time, MTV News had not received comment from Brown’s rep about the song.
Brown is free on $50,000 bail after turning himself in on the night of the Grammy Awards . If convicted, he could face a sentence ranging from probation to nearly five years in state prison.
