Chris Brown is on the cover of Jet magazine this month, and he’s not pulling any punches — unless there’s a woman around probably. The embattled singer compares and contrasts himself to both Jay Z and Trayvon Martin, in a candid interview.
A few choice quotes (via CNN).
“This is something I’ve been dealing with for the past maybe five years. Anybody with a voice – Tupac, Michael Jackson, the Notorious B.I.G. – gets formatted…except maybe for Jay Z, who is accepted by White America because he shakes hands and kisses babies. No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that he stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”
He does get a pass, which is weird, but you’re forgetting that it’s made up shit from a corny-ass salesman.
Any other icons he could talk about?
“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 niggas.”
Except Trayvon didn’t do anything.
And that was the Chris Brown blog post.
