Black America Web

Chris Brown already has a successful career in music, but it looks like the singer-turned-rapper also has his sights locked on a path as a painter.

Together, Brown and KAI worked on seven pieces. They also reportedly painted a Porsche and the work was sold next to material fro renowned street artists Shepard Fairey and KAWS.

Brown sold two canvases for $25,000 a piece, according to Page Six. He also sold a third canvas for $12,000. If you’re wondering where the money went, the site reports that half of it was donated to a charity.

Marshawn Lynch is looking to capitalize on his infamous “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” phrase from The big game’s media day.

“We heard from our fans, and so many of them were saying that they wanted that phrase on the clothing,” Chris Bevans, who runs Lynch’sBeast Mode” apparel line, told ESPN.com. “This is just listening to the marketplace.”  Bevans said the phrase will appear on shirts and sweatshirts on the Beast Mode website within the next month.  I guess you could say Marshawn Lynch got the last laugh after all.
