Already delayed in earnest, Chris Brown‘s sixth studio album ‘X’ was dealt a devastating blow when the singer was arrested and jailed on suspicious of assault last month.
The ‘Fine China’ led set had danced around a number of release dates, yet was -at that point- scheduled to hit stores on December 3rd.
However, with the 24-year-old rushed into rehab for three months in the wake of the drama, it rendered the promo run required for a major album launch virtually impossible. As such, making the latest date likely impossible too.
Still, in recognising how important it is to consistently maintain a musical presence, C.Breezy is gearing up to roll-out a new mixtape, aptly titled ‘X Files’.
Details after the jump…
Taking to Twitter, the singer revealed that the free set will arrive this week:
X files mixtape Tuesday NOV 19th, 5 songs.

As much as we’re inclined to say “kudos for pressing on with new music”, we’d much rather be congratulating him for staging a successful image overhaul. One that would make his music more palatable to the masses ahead of the release of any new material.
It goes without saying that CB is an incredible talent, yet the monthly theatrics have soured so many; including several of those that were willing to give him the “second”, “third”, and “fourth” chances he’s been so publicly craving.
Still, we’re somewhat keen to hear what he’s cooked up with the ‘X Files’ and how, if at all, this plugs into the campaign for the ‘X’ album. Is there still an ‘X’ album at this point? Time will bring those answers. In the meanwhile, we want to know: are you still excited for new Chris Brown music?
