*There’s no question that Chris Brown has endured a lot in recent years.
The following are highlights from Brown’s interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning Show:
His drug usage —
“I was off the syrup, the Xanax….that’s the hood cocktail. I was falling asleep on video sets, I was cussing people out randomly. I was doing crazy stuff. I would wake up and be like ‘aye man, what time we shooting this video?’ And they would be like ‘dude we shot it yesterday.’ I be like ‘Damn!’
He then realized, “This ain’t for me. As time progressed I was like let me chill out. I don’t want to be a zombie when I meet people. Or say the wrong thing, or end up punching somebody or doing something crazy…like I did…because I was under the influence of some bull.”
“Me and her, we made amends. Like, we good. She’s my friend. I knew that was a mistake I would never do again. I look back at it like I was 17-18 and I’m 25 now so I look back it like ‘dang’. And I’m still doing community service and going to see the judge every month in a half over that situation.”
Rihanna dating Drake —
“I look at it like this. I’m content with who I am so whoever decides to move on and do their thing I was cool. I mean, I was tight, but you also have to consider that was in the ‘thug Chris Brown era’. I was in my bag. At that time I was just all about running up on dudes, when I see you it’s this.”
So does he feel like Rihanna started dating Drake on purpose?
“She’s going to get mad when I say this but in a way I do. It’s understandable. It’s the game, we young. We do that at that age.”
The bottle throwing fight with Drake —
“That was a ‘stick ya chest out’ contest. That’s all that was.”
Who made the initial call to squash his beef with Drake —
“Honestly, his camp hit up my management and they was like we got this opportunity at the ESPYS, we want to do a spoof. So I was like cool. They were kind of hesitant because they didn’t know our temperature between each other. But I was just like I ain’t got time to be looking over my shoulder and be upset. It just doesn’t make me look good. But, I was just like let’s break this whole beef thing. Let’s just do something funny, let’s make light of the situation. It just shows growth and maturity.”
