Chris Brown

Jailhouse Jammin'

With DeBarge

EXCLUSIVE

0516-chris-brown-fun-art-02
Chris Brown is feeling the Rhythm of the Night ... with the guy in the next cell.

The most famous inmate at L.A. County Jail is passing his time singing tunes with the 8th (we're generous) most famous inmate -- James DeBarge.

The two R& B stars are locked up in side-by-side cells -- in the segregated unit for high profile inmates.

We're told they've been collaborating on music and have already written three songs, performing them during the long days ... with other cellmates harmonizing.

This is kind of amazing ... they can't see each other.  It's all about the sounds.

You know why Chris is behind bars.  As for DeBarge ... it's all about those pesky drug convictions.

Wonder who's opening for who?

How many DeBarge family members are in jail?...I remember one of them making friends with Dr Sh*t Brains (Murray)...but I thought I saw a pic of them going to eat just a few months back?...I guess he could be back in jail on account of how stupid he obviously is to believe anything Murray says..lol.........>>>>and this is THE BEST thing to EVER happen to this guy...he might get writing credit for a hit song...LOL
