Chris Brown is the newest star to explore the lane of Black-ish. According to Entertainment Weekly, the R&B artist will be casted as the role of a rap artist in the popular comedy series.
During the half hour episode titled “Richard Youngsta,” Brown’s character unites advertising efforts with Dre (played by Anthony Anderson) to better advance his rap career. However, a concern appears on the set when Dre delivers the information of the journey with his wife Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and his mother Ruby (Jenifer Lewis), who admit that the rapper’s intentions stir up adverse debates. The episode will air on March 29.
The series’ inventor, Kenya Barris, who stated that the series is established off the configuration of his own family, conveyed on the significance of likeness that he hopes Black-ish will advocate. “We want a show that we feel is true to our experiences,” he said to IndieWire. “I think sometimes there’s an unfair bias, especially amongst our people, that one thing has to be this pandemic cure-all for everything. And to me that’s not fair.”
