This is the time when we wish Chris Brown would’ve just kept quiet and not said anything at all – at least when it came to speaking about Jay-Z’s past.
The R&B singer recently did an interview with JET magazine where he was questioned about his alleged beef with Hova after the Rihanna incident.
For those who do not know, Jay-Z is pretty much the founder of Rih-Rih and the two have remained good friends over the years, so when your pal is in a situation where she’s violently abused, you gotta stand by her side, right?
Back in ’09 there were reports that Jay was telling his music exec friends to boycott Breezy’s music if he was to ever approach them for something, and stay away from any of his upcoming projects.
And then there was the infamous moment when Jay refused to stand up for Chris Brown after his performance at the Video Music Awards back in 2011 (see below at 4:28). Ouch.
Well now things have turned back to Chris when questioned about his relationship towards the RocNation millionaire. Breezy dared himself to say the following:
“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.”
We definitely understand what he’s trying to say here, but it just didn’t fit with the question they asked and neither did it really make any sense.
Chris Brown says that Jay shot someone – referring to the time Hova shot his drug-addict brother when he was TWELVE years old.
No one said anything about it because Jay-Z wasn’t in the limelight at that time which is why no one hassles him about it.
Chris doesn’t seem to understand that what happens before you are famous doesn’t get picked up as much as the things that you do after you become a star and photographers are following you everywhere you go.
The Rihanna incident and Jay’s shooting at the age of 12 can not be compared because one can say that while Chris was a grown up and knew what he was doing, Jay was a petrified child with a gun in his hand.
This excerpt has led us to believe that when it comes to music, Chris’ career has been put in danger. Not for the fact that he’s bringing up the Jay-Z shooting story, but how he phrased it by saying why can he get away with it and I can’t get away with beating a woman.
Is Chris Brown’s career in danger?
