When asked what he thinks about Jay Z, Brown basically threw the well-respected rapper under the bus, by saying that he gets a free pass from the media. Brown explained his thoughts on Jay Z, having said:
“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.”
Brown’s bitter words directed towards Jay Z aren’t too surprising. The two have been on shaky ground since Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna back in 2008.
Since then the feud between the two has ragged on. In October 2012, Jay Z threatened to end Chris Brown’s career if he ever hurt Rihanna again. According to sources, Jay pulled Brown aside at his concert, having told the singer that if he hurt Rihanna again he would, “physically,emotional,or mentally” that it’s over for him”. Jay continued, reportedly having said: “I will make sure your career is over and demolished”.
In 2011 Jay Z also refused to clap for Chris Brown during the singer’s stand out performance at the VMAs that year.
In addition Chris Brown has blasted Jay Z by offending Beyonce. On his Twitter, Brown insinuated that Beyonce wasn’t an original artist. In true Chris Brown fashion, the tweet has since been deleted.
Jay Z wasn’t the only thing on Chris Brown’s mind. When the topic of racism got brought up in his JET interview, he discussed how he feels about the slain Trayvon Martin, having said:
“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.”
