For his first candid radio interview in quite some time, Chris Brown paid a visit to his old friend Ebro and the Hot 97 morning crew. Wasting no time they delved right into his struggles over the years, following the Rihanna assault to dealing with bad influences, drugs, jail time and much much more.
Chris admitted to allowing the wrong people to be around him, and being on numerous prescription drugs that really affected his judgement and his craft. He spoke about how his actions have given certain media outlets the ability to make a lot of money off of him, and he admitted that his demons today are being afraid of failure.
“I think my only demon is the doubt in myself, but I think that also makes me great at the same time, because if I doubt myself I don’t always think everything I’m gonna do is going to be the best,” said Chris. “It always keeps me on my toes, so I think my demons is just me being afraid of failure.”
Chris also touched on how his team made him handle the past situation with Rihanna in regards to the media and how he didn’t want to go that route. He spoke about when they got back together around a year ago, why he wanted to make amends with her and try to make it work again. Those points quickly lead to her relationship with Drake, and his feelings toward the rap star back then to when they patched up any past beef and surprised fans with their skit together at this years ESPY Awards.
For all the people that have criticized the lyrics of his hit single “Loyal,” Chris explained the songs theme, and why it has nothing to do with his relationship with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
This was definitely one of Chris’ best interviews ever, when you have some free time check out the full chat below:
