Chris Brown has been everywhere this week. He capped off his press blitz with a return visit to “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on Power 106 on Friday. Breezy spoke about his new album X, due in June or July, his beefs with Drake and Frank Ocean, being compared to Tupac, and collaborating with Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez.
On his relationship with Drake: “It’s not entertainment for me. It’s just more of me being real, saying what I gotta say. I ain’t out here trying to go at him, I ain’t got people after him. I have my differences and he has his. His music’s still hot.”
On his fight with Frank Ocean: “Some stuff went down, but it’s whatever. It’s always sensationalized and always blown out of proportion. I got respect for his music. I got respect for everybody else, so I ain’t really tryna go back down that route. Everything for me is moving forward.”
On collaborating with Rihanna: “Right now, I have a couple songs that I wrote for her album and mine that she’s featured on. The song’s called ‘Put It Up.’”
On comparisons to Tupac: “I just identify with a young black male who deals with trials and tribulations and can express his art through his poetry. I’m passionate so I can identify with that. Everything I do, I wear my heart on my sleeve.”
On working with Jennifer Lopez: “I’m just writing for her album. I got a couple other songs on my album that would be a great girl feature, especially for me and J.Lo. I just want to do a dope dance video with me and her.”
