For JET Magazine’s latest issue, Chris Brown is letting everyone have it — including hip-hop powerhouse, Jay Z. While he’s fan of Jay’s, Breezy just can’t get past the royalty treatment Jay receives given his bad boy past.
No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass. (…)
I wouldn’t call his statement an attack on Jay but one things for sure is the 24-year-old singer still has this beef against the media.
The media is full of yellow journalism. A lot of things I say, they will flip it. Instead of them getting off on all the positive stuff that I do, they will bring out the negative and draw out that story.
Catch more highlights of the interview, below, where Chris Brown identifies with Trayvon Martin and reflects on his anger and relationship issues. Be sure to purchase the latest issue of JET on stands Monday, Sept. 23rd.
On Trayvon Martin:
I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as.
On controlling his anger issues:
You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be. I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.
On his relationships with Karrueche Tran & Rihanna:
Relationships are the most difficult part. That’s why I was honest with those two girls and I put out that video. My ex and I broke up because of the “situation” and she had moved on. I fell in love with another girl. Then my ex came back, so it was like, ‘What is a man to do?’ I told them both the truth. I didn’t do the sucker role.
