Chris Brown apologizes for tailing Robert Glasper

Chris Brown was in the hot seat over on Twitter recently, and it’s all over him, somewhat shadowing musician Robert Glasper through his Instagram Story. However, it looks like Breezy is working to make amends as he has apologized for his initial reaction.

Chris speaks on Instagram: “Who Da F**k Is ​​This?”

The situation unfolded on Sunday — the day of the 2023 Grammys — after Robert Glasper won Best R&B Album for Black Radio III.

Shortly after Robert’s win, Breezy shared some now-deleted posts on his IG story. Specifically, Chris asked “who the hell” is Robert Glasper. He also seemed to shade Robert’s sound when Breezy said that — in order for him to compete with Glasper — “he has to [his] Improve Skills” by learning how to play the harmonica.

It is important at this point to shed further light on Robert Glasper’s musical contributions in order to highlight the effect that Chris Brown, who did not know him, had.

Los Angeles Magazine describes Glasper as a “pioneering jazz pianist” who has had an “indelible impact on the music industry” with his “genre-bending” contributions over the years. We should also add that his most recent win was his fifth Grammy award, so he’s certainly no stranger to being honored for his work.

As a result, one person posted on Twitter that “R&B + hip-hop musicians studying their craft know [who] Glasper ice.”

Robert Glasper’s project Black Radio, released in 2002, collectively ushered in a new genre, a fusion of jazz, hip-hop, funk, R&B, diff-sampling techniques, the heavyweights of a little thing called NEOSOUL. Its sound penetrates. R&B + Hip-Hop musicians studying their craft know Glasper is.

Twitter relies on Chris Brown

After Chris admitted he was completely unfamiliar with Robert Glasper, a host of Twitter users chimed in and shared their reactions to the mess.

I’m a fan of Chris Brown… but he’s a bloody slut for this IG story that puts Robert Glasper to shame.

Several people pointed out that given Chris Brown’s musical output, it “makes sense” that he’s unfamiliar with Glasper.

Chris Brown not knowing who Robert Glasper is is why all Chris Brown songs sound the same

“I’ve never heard of this guy 😂😂😂”

Yes, brother, we know. We hear it all in the kazoos to the beats you’re hopping on

Robert Glasper could help Chris Brown finally make a song that doesn’t sound like 2013.

That Chris Brown doesn’t know who Robert Glasper is makes sense. He has made the same album three times in a row

However, one user went against the tide, accusing people of “acting like they know who Robert Glasper of the crowd is” due to their dislike of Breezy.

Twitter hates Chris Brown so much they pretend to know who Robert Glasper is to the masses son I’m crying 😂

Still, many felt that as an R&B star, Breezy should be familiar with Glasper.

That’s such a stupid attitude. If you have any association with the black music industry, you know who Robert Glasper is. Not knowing HER is one thing, but not knowing Chris Brown is ridiculous.

Chris Brown trying to be dodgy to Robert Glasper isn’t funny at all. Robert has been one of the most talented musicians in hip hop for over a decade. Black Radio 3 is an AMAZING album. Respect his name.

Breezy apologizes to Robert Glasper: ‘You weren’t the intended target’

On Monday, Chris Brown finally changed his mind and slipped into Glasper’s DMs to apologize.

Breezy first congratulated Robert before apologizing, “if [he] taken offense” at the situation. He also clarified that Robert was “not the intended target,” though Breezy still admitted his reaction “came off really rude and mean.”

Chris praised Glasper’s work before announcing that they shouldn’t have been in the same category as they create “two different vibes and genres.” He also said, “THE ORGANIZATION DOESN’T BLACK OUR CARE TO US.”

Ultimately, Breezy wished Robert well and kept pushing.

What do you think of Chris Brown apologizing for his comments about Robert Glasper? Also, do you think that as a professional artist, Chris should have been familiar with Robert?
