    Let's just chance we're grateful this chance encounter happened! Chris Brown was allegedly discovered at a gas station in which his father was working at. A producer with Hitmission Records spoke to his dad in regard to his search on finding a rapper or singer. Chris Brown's father talked up the then-13-year-old Chris Brown to the producer and scheduled a meeting. The rest was history! Now, with his hard work and dedication, Chris Brown has gone on to being one of the top performers in music!

    Many celebrities reach fame after they've gotten to live their childhood out. That wasn't Chris Brown. From the moment he met the producers at Hitmission Records he was busy working. He honed his singing voice and left school at the age of 16 to fully pursue his singing career. Chris Brown was essentially working while we were playing. His career started at an early age but he's still a key player in the game!
