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, "
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.
