Are you a Chris Brown fan hoping to grab a picture with your favorite rapper? Well, start saving because it's gonna cost you a whopping $1,000. Yes, for real. Brown, who is currently on his One Of Them One's Tour with Lil Baby, is charging his superfans 1K for a chance to meet, greet and snap an Insta. After some fans posted the photographic evidence of the meeting and disclosed what they had paid for the said opportunity, the internet had much to say on the matter, sparking a viral debate...

"They selling Chris Brown meet & greet passes for $1,000.. y'all think it's worth it?" DJ Kameron Bennett tweeted alongside pictures of the rapper with some of his fans. This triggered an online debate - was this a fair price? "Not at all," replied one user. "Small money," disagreed another. "Celebrities sho know how to finesse folks out they money," wrote one unimpressed user. A mixed bag of thoughts, to say the least.

Fellow hip-hop artist Yung Bleu even got in on the debate, taking to social media to defend his friend in a responding tweet. "1000$ for a life-long memory/moment ain't bad," he wrote. "Y'all ain't gone have no memories when y'all get old only thing y'all gone remember is paying bills." Frankly, what everyone thinks is essentially irrelevant as it was recently confirmed that the slots had sold out. Evidently, the price matches the demand!

The One Of Them One's Tour kicked off on Friday in New York City and will head around various other US cities before closing in Las Vegas on August 27. In an interview with Big Boy, the rapper admitted he was nervous about making his return to the stage. "I still get nervous. I'm anxious about it. Like, when I get in work mode or thinking about it, I'm also just putting it in my mind, 'How are the fans gonna perceive this?' And say you know what, 'I didn't waste my money coming to this mutha*****. I actually had a good time,' you know what I'm saying?" If you're not looking to fork out on a meet and greet ticket or even a concert ticket, a cheaper Chris Brown experience would be listening to his 10th studio album, Breezy, out now.
