Chris Brown is gracing the latest cover of JET Magazine and “respectfully” firing a few not-so-friendly shots in the process.
Breezy sat down for a quick chat with JET and opened up about everything from Trayvon Martin, his own image in the media, racism, other celebrities getting off easy with the public after making bad decisions and more.
Check out a few excerpts below.

On controlling his anger when responding to critics:
“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to last out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be.”
On dealing with backlash and reaching his breaking point:
“I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.”
whined about spoke on how hip hop moguls like Jay Z get a “pass” for the things they’ve done in the past while he doesn’t, and how young black men are still considered “n***as” despite staying out of trouble.
Hit the flip to read what he had to say..
On Trayvon Martin and racism in 2013:
“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.”
On his rumored beef with Jay-Z:
“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.”
Welp. Guess Breezy figures he can let the world know how he really feels about Hov now that he doesn’t have to play nice for Rihanna’s sake.
Do you agree with his comments?
