Chris Brown: The Musical Parody From Hip Hop Musicals

Wilkie Ferguson and his team at Hip Hop Musicals have done it again. They’ve taken an R&B/hip-hop song and turned it into a song worthy of Broadway.  This time, the song is “Post to Be,” by Chris Brown, Omarion, and Jhene Aiko, and it’s part of the fictional Chris Brown Musical.  According to YouTube, it stars “Nick Chris as Chris Brown, Morgan James as Jhene Aiko, Wilkie Ferguson as Omarion, Doug Wamble as White Police Officer #2, with Cicely Tyson as Rhianna,” and opens on Broadway in the spring of 2016, with “special thanks to domestic abuse fight choreographer, Mike Tyson.”

Hip Hop Musicals has also taken Silento’s “Watch Me Whip” and Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and transformed these songs into barely recognizable stage-worthy productions. All three are absolutely must sees.

Ferguson is no stranger to the stage; he’s been in Motown: The Musical, Porgy and Bess, and Wonderland. The other singers in the video are equally talented. Morgan James appeared in The Addams Family alongside Nathan Lane; had leading roles in Wonderland, Godspell (Turn Back, O Man), and Motown: The Musical as Teena Marie; and recently signed with Epic Records. Nicholas Christopher has been seen in Rent, Motown: The Musical, The Tempest, and most recently, Whorl Inside a Loop.

Watch the video and then let us know in the comments what you think!
