Last month, Chris Brown announced that his sixth and supposedly final album, X, would be coming out November 19. The day is here, and the album isn't ready, but that doesn't mean Brown hasn't made any progress.

Tonight, he shared six songs (five and a bonus track) that didn't make the cut, in a new free EP, titled X Files (get it? like, these are files from X! and Chris Brown is an alien or something). Busta Rhymes, Ludacris and Kid Ink make appearances. These may be the outtakes, but they're some of the smoothest, weirdest cuts Brown has released in a long time, drawing on minimal beats and hinting at recent electronic trends. It's actually pretty solid.

Check out X Files below:
