Before anyone caught wind of his superstar talents, Chris Brown was a Tappahannock, VA high school teen, trying to break through the music industry. It is always interesting to look at artists before the world recognized their celebrity. G-Unit rapper, Young Buck, recently shared a major throwback picture of him and the artist formerly known as “C Sizzle.” According to Buck, Breezy called himself “C-Sizzle” before opting to stick with his birth name. The picture seems to be from a newspaper or magazine clip. The caption reads, “Sophomore, Chris Brown, a.k.a. “C Sizzle” aspires to be a famous musician. He took a trip to New York to record his album, “One Love, One Life” over summer break. Chris is pictured here with Young Buck.”

Chris Brown had to be at 15 when this picture was taken, a year before his number one hit, “Run It,” and the rest is history. It is unclear of Young Buck’s motive to share the picture, but it certainly a throwback of the ages.
