Chris Brown Says ‘I’ve Taken My Fair Share of Lashings’

Chris Brown has been through a lot in the last few years, but is comparing his issues to that of Jay Z and maybe even slavery, a bit too much?

In a recent interview with JET magazine, the "Fine China" singer questioned why people have decided to respect Jay Z, knowing that his past includes selling drugs.

"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 told the magazine, before admitting that he is trying to do better in his life.

"I don't try to lash out at people or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be," said Brown, who has had many an outburst (on and offline) that became "Headline News."

Still, Brown thinks that he's taken more than enough from people, including the media, and in some odd decision, used the words "master" and "lashings" to get his point across with JET.

"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," Brown told the magazine.
