It’s no secret that before joining the illuminati and texting emoticons to Barack Obama (just joking), Jay Z was a big pimpin’ drug dealer moving units of pure white up and down I-95. It’s that history, one Jay brags about in his lyrics, that has Chris Brown puzzled.
That’s because the r&b singer is still criticized and questioned by the press for bashing Rihanna’s face in back in 2009. “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 says in an interview with Jet magazine.
Brown continued trying to explain why he’s over the entire media circus that has encompassed his life. “I try to grasp the concept of being a normal guy sometimes. But when you start singing professionally at 14, 15 … I look back at it and I’m only 24, but I’m starting to feel old. I’m not trying to be younger or older. I’m just trying to be my age and move with the time.”
